We find Sandra Bullock‘s adopted son Louis as adorable as the rest of you, but why, why was the kid wearing that ridiculous beaded necklace on the cover of People? He’s not white, we get that, so does he really need a set of tribal-looking beads to drive home the point? Couldn’t they have thrown a cutesy baby outfit on him and called it a day? No one technically asked for the advice and we’re not applying for the job or anything, but … if we were Louis’ stylists, here’s how we’d advise him to dress. Keep reading »
With Sandra Bullock’s baby revelation yesterday, one question keeps coming to mind—how, exactly, does one conceal a baby for three months, especially while under the intense scrutiny of Oscar buzz and mega-scandal curiosity? Yes, she did drop some serious hints. In her Oscar speech, she thanked “all the moms who take care of babies and children no matter where they come from,” but we all assumed she was talking about (a) the character she played in “The Blind Side” and (b) the fact that she’s become a step-mom to Jesse James’ kids. Apparently, on one awards season red carpet, a lime green baby sock popped out of her bag. Someone just picked it up and gave it back to her without a second thought.
So how did she do it? It wasn’t easy. Keep reading »
Alright, enough with the Jesse James bashing. There, I said it. I’m tired of it. Lady blogs, celebrity blogs, gossip blogs, every single other kind of blogs — they’re all beating him up like he’s the latest, greatest punching bag. Get over it. He messed up. Why is everyone so hell-bent on bashing him? Sure, cheating on your wife, dating sleazy strippers, and taking photos while doing the Hitler salute are not the best life choices. But can’t we lay off the guy already? Keep reading »
Wronged wife Sandra Bullock dropped the bombshell-of-all-bombshells when she announced on the cover of People magazine yesterday that she adopted a baby boy in January. And while I’m happy as a clam for Sandra and little Louis Bardo Bullock, I also find the way the media’s handling the story to be quite odd.
The New York Daily News‘ cover today says “Sweet Revenge!” and teases an article on their website about Sandra’s adoption with the line, “She doesn’t need a big baby like Jesse — she’s got a real one now.” Metro (a free newspaper handed out in big cities) trumpets, “Sandy’s Trump Card? Her Secret Adoption.”
I’m sorry, but why is a newborn baby a “trump card” or “sweet revenge”? Keep reading »
Boy, when Sandra Bullock breaks her silence, she does it in a big way! In this week’s People magazine, Bullock not only discusses life since learning of her estranged husband’s alleged infidelities, she confirms she’s filed for divorce. But that isn’t even the biggest news. Her real bombshell is that she’s adopting a baby boy! She and Jesse started the adoption process four years ago and brought home the baby from New Orleans in January — before her Oscar win and before her marriage publicly broke up. She now plans to adopt as a single mom. Of her new son, whom she named Louis (pronounced Lew-ee) Bardo Bullock, she tells People magazine: “The first time I met Louis it was like the whole outside world got quiet. It was like he had always been a part of our lives.” Keep reading »
