Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have been fighting each other hard over the custody of their 6-year-old son Julian since January, but thankfully, it looks like their custody battle may be turning civil. I just checked my calendar to see if it was April 1st.
Robin and Paula were scheduled to face off in court yesterday, but that didn’t happen. Sources tell TMZ that Robin and Paula are very close to coming to an agreement on the custody situation for little Julian, and they’ve both decided to try something new, like acting like adults and trying to settle things. That’s a real departure from their original plan of action, which was dragging each other by the necks into a messy fight whenever even the smallest opportunity presented itself.
Robin has been accused of some pretty nasty stuff since this whole thing first started, like child abuse, wife abuse, a too-close relationship with his drug dealer, and wooing their social worker with sushi. Paula has been accused by Robin of going MIA for 10 days and conspiring against him with their visitation supervisor.
I hope for Julian’s sake that Robin and Paula actually play nice and close the lid on their custody hell as soon as possible. I also hope that one of their lawyers remembers to get their truce in writing. I know these two messes feed off the drama, and it’s only a matter of time before one of them says “screw it” and we’re back at square-awful again. While they’re at it, can one of those lawyers get Robin to sign a thing promising that once they settle this custody situation, he agrees not to release an embarrassing album about getting Julian back? Paula was cringey enough for one lifetime.
We all know Azealia Banks has the ability to make a situation extremely messy, but apparently she can also cause heaps of trouble from thousands of miles away too. Apparently her witchcraft skills include remote viewing powers. Case in point, Azealia missing a court appearance because she was at a fashion show in Paris.
IHOP’s elusive boysenberry syrup!
Why is anybody in America at work today? It is National Pancake Day AND National Cereal Day. Along with bacon, booze and anything fried, pancake and cereal are part of America’s 5 basic food groups (Don’t Google, it’s true!). So everyone should be spending our day worshiping pancakes and cereal by stuffing our mouths with cereal-stuffed pancake taquitos, pancake and cereal sandwiches, etc.. And when our jaws get tired, we should roll up a pancake and use it as a straw to snort crushed cereal, and when our noses get raw, we should mainline pancake batter. And yes, I’m typing this while one of my veins is attached to an IV drip full of uncooked Bisquick.
To celebrate National Pancake Day, today’s HSOTD is the elusive chanteuse of IHOP syrups: boysenberry!

In case your ears haven’t gobbled down at least one episode of Missing Richard Simmons, it’s a podcast where one of Richard Simmons’ friends and former customers, filmmaker Dan Taberski, tries to get to the bottom of what happened to the human lighting bolt in a golden dandelion ‘fro.
It’s been over three years since the sun frowned from Richard disappearing from public life and pretty much cutting off his friends. Richard has been living like me (aka never leaves the house and avoids other humans) and he and his rep have released statements saying that he’s got a busted knee and is just staying away from the spotlight for now. Richard’s legendary studio also closed up last year because it needed his presence to survive.
On the third episode of MRS, Dan talked to another one of Richard’s friends, Mauro Oliveira, who once again shared a theory that he shared last year. Mauro believes that Richard’s longtime housekeeper, Teresa Reveles, used her black magic bruja powers to control him. Richard’s rep shit on Mauro’s claims.
