“[I was] absolutely stone broke. She was put up for adoption when I was 17 or 18, I think … Since her mom and dad have died, we’ve tried to come together and be close together, and it’s working out pretty well. I never felt like I was her dad, because I didn’t take her to school, change her nappies, there was no paternal thing there. But I’m trying.”
—Crooner Rod Stewart talks about Sarah Streeter, the first of his seven children, who was put up for adoption. She is now 46. Geez, Rod has been procreating for almost half a century. His wife Penny Lancaster is currently pregnant. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Kanye West has done some really stupid things. So are you surprised that he went out and had diamonds permanently drilled into his bottom teeth? OK, maybe not so surprised. But still kind of astounded by the stupidity, especially after learning from The New York Daily News that this type of cosmetic enhancement is pretty risky. For starters, it’s not so healthy (ya think?) and one dentist says: “Diamonds are very hard, and this hard surface should not be used on the biting side of a tooth … Since diamonds are harder than your teeth, you will wind up breaking or wearing down your other teeth, causing you to need more dental work.” What else? Bleeding gums (gross). And if you choose to get the diamonds drilled directly into your teeth (as apposed to using a strong glue), and something goes wrong with the tooth, then you have the added cost of replacing the tooth and the diamond (assuming you still want it there).
Our question is … what credible dentists are actually doing this to people? [New York Daily News] Keep reading »
Ladies and germs, I am excited to present evidence that Jared Leto has returned to his formerly hot self. Gone is the man makeup and the bleached-out or swoopy goth hair. His band still sucks, but he at least looks good playing in it again. I would like for him to gain a little more weight in his abdomen area, but I give him an “A” for arousal.

When I read that our blogger friends at Jezebel.com started a PayPal account for a “college fund” to help Catelynn and Tyler, the teens who gave their daughter up for adoption on “16 and Pregnant,” my heart melted a little bit. “Catelynn and Tyler have won us over, exhibiting strength and maturity in the face of hardship, and they’ve expressed a desire to continue their schooling,” wrote blogger Tracie Egan Morrissey. “So we’ve decided to raise some cash for their college education.” Who doesn’t watch those kids’ awful parents — Tyler’s dad, Butch, who is in and out of prison; Catelynn’s mom, who is nasty to Catelynn for not keeping her baby — without wanting to get them outta there? Anyone whose left their own family drama behind them knows it takes a certain amount of money for a young person to extricate himself or herself from their parents. I don’t know how much they’re paid by MTV to appear on “Teen Mom.” So, hell, if Jezebel wants to help these kids out some more, show me where I can donate.
But my colleague Julie couldn’t disagree more. Julie’s also a “16 & Pregnant”/”Teen Mom” fan and her soft spot for Catelynn and Tyler is just as big as mine. But she questions Jezebel.com’s motives for starting a PayPal college fund in the first place. Not to mention the fact that they’re just doing it for Catelynn and Tyler—not the others on the show.
So Julie and I did what we always do around The Frisky when we disagree: we had a catfight! After the jump, the hair will fly! Keep reading »
