This week Ben Stiller’s interview with Esquire made headlines when he revealed that he and wife Christine Taylor got back together during the pandemic after separating in 2017. Now for another personal revelation from the interview: Ben says his daughter, 19-year-old Ella, called him out for not being around when she was a kid. 56-year-old Ben says Ella is “pretty articulate about it” (thanks, therapy!), and it’s not an easy thing to hear. He explains that he felt the same way about his own parents, late comedians Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara, and he always thought “Well I won’t do that.” Alas, Ben’s Hollywood dreams got in the way. Papa, can you hear me? Papa, can you see me? Papa, can you call me between takes on Little Fockers?
Jamie Spears Is Accusing Britney Spears’s Team Of Delaying His Termination As Conservator And Slandering His “Reputation”
Britney Spears may finally be free in spirit since the court ruled to end her 13-year conservatorship last month, but there are still a few loose ends to be tied up before she’s officially free to start rebuilding her life in earnest. According to Insider, one of those loose ends is Britney’s dad and former conservator, Jamie Spears, who has been accused by Britney’s team of not following the proper termination procedure, and that what he did file was “incorrect, grossly misleading, and procedurally improper.” They also say that Jamie has yet to produce alleged records pertaining to their claims that he had an “illicit listening device” placed in Britney’s bedroom “to capture intimate communications.” But Jamie has spit on those accusations and says that Britney’s team is just “looking for a seat on the bandwagon of trashing [him] based on zero evidence.” Look, he already loaded up the pickup truck and dumped a mountain of wrinkled-up Starbucks receipts at their back door, what more do they want?! Blood? Have you seen him lately? He doesn’t have a drop to spare.
As some of us run off to Oregon to beg officials to make their bad shit law legal NOW so we can numb the anxiety of looking at the newest results in the presidential battle, Lady Gaga might be crossing her dad’s name off of her Thanksgiving dinner guest list. Because while Lady Gaga has been campaigning for Joe Biden, Pappy Gaga (government name: Joe Germanotta) jacked off Donald Trump on Twitter, even though Trump called her “not good” and went full gossiping biddy by saying that he could tell us stories about that one. Bitch please, Benita Butrell, Trump ain’t!
When I say the name Madonna, I’m either referring to the pop star who may be losing her mind in quarantine (join the club), or the ultimate maternal figure, mother of Jesus, the Virgin Mary. Madonna is Mother. But, apparently, in the case 23-year-old Lourdes, 19-year-old Rocco, 14-year-olds David and Mercy, and seven-year-old twins Esther and Stella, Madonna, you ARE the father! At least according to Instagram. On Sunday she posted a series of pics of her and her brood of kids, with the caption: “Happy Fathers Day to Me and to every parent out there doing their best to Nurture, Guide, Inspire and Teach!”
Carlos Leon is Lourdes’ father and Guy Ritchie is both Rocco’s biological father and David’s adoptive father. But fuck those Dads, right? Especially Guy. They get zero Father’s Day love. Because Madonna is Mom, Dad, Sun, Moon, God, Goddess, Movie Star, COVID-Warrior, Movie Killer, Everything.
Earlier this month, Rihanna’s 66-year-old father Ronald Fenty told The Sun that he tested positive for COVID-19 and his dear thoughtful daughter swooped in and saved the day by sending him a ventilator. Ronald claimed that he didn’t get a chance to use the ventilator because he recovered quickly. Ronald didn’t say what he was going to do with his unused ventilator. Would he send it back? Donate it to a hospital? Post it on Facebook Marketplace under Antiques & Collectables? (“VENTILATOR PERSONALLY PURCHASED BY RIHANNA. RARE! PICK UP ONLY, NO LOW BALL OFFERS“). According to a source who spoke with Page Six, the answer probably isn’t going to be any of those options, because Rihanna never sent Ronald a ventilator.
Because everyone and their mother are getting coronavirus, Rihanna’s father got coronavirus. 66-year-old Ronald Fenty tested positive for COVID-19 after suffering from a high fever. He spent two weeks being treated in a Barbadian isolation center. A concerned Rihanna somehow procured a ventilator and sent it to her dad’s home, but Daddy RiRi recovered before he needed to use it. Also, he didn’t know how the hell to use it.
But it’s the thought that counts! So what’s a grateful papa to do? Send flowers? A thoughtful email? Call her up and have one of those tearful, once-in-a-lifetime conversations? Naaaw. Ronald immediately sold that shit (his story, not the ventilator, but give him time) to the British tabloids.
