The Royal Baby Is Here . . . And It's a Boy
Britain's ROYAL BABY arrived yesterday . . . and it's a BOY. Which means that it looks like the next three fake rulers of England will be KINGS.
Unless QUEEN ELIZABETH outlives PRINCE CHARLES. And let's be honest . . . it's starting to look like that might happen.
They haven't released the baby's name yet, but oddsmakers are betting on James. And he'll be third in line to the throne, behind his grandfather Charles and his dad, PRINCE WILLIAM. That kicks nude billiards champion PRINCE HARRY to FOURTH.
The baby came out at 8 pounds, 6 ounces.
Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott Gave Birth to a Baby Girl Yesterday . . . And Gave Her a Beautiful but Impossible to Pronounce Name
HILLARY SCOTT and her husband Chris Tyrrell became first-time parents yesterday. Naturally, the world found out about it through social media.
Hillary Tweeted a picture of the baby's footprints and wrote, "She's here, and we are in heaven! Eisele Kaye, our beautiful angel, Happy Birthday!"
According to People.com, the baby's first name is pronounced Eyes-lee . . . like the Mos Eisley space port in the original "Star Wars". Eisele was her mother-in-law's maiden name, and Kaye is her mom's middle name.
Spike Lee is Trying to Fund His Next Movie Through Kickstarter
Here's how messed up the film industry is getting: If you're not making a bombastic action movie full of explosions, superheroes and / or giant robots, you're going to have trouble drumming up funding. Even if you're SPIKE LEE.
Spike is going the Kickstarter route to fund his new movie, which he says will be about, quote, "human beings who are addicted to blood." He adds, quote, "There's a lot of sex in it, too."
In a message on the Kickstarter page, he says, quote, "With the current climate in The Hollywood Studio System it's not an encouraging look for Independent Filmmakers.
"I'm not hating, just stating the facts. Super Heroes, Comic Books, 3D Special EFX, Blowing up the Planet Nine Times and Fly through the Air while Transforming is not my Thang."
Obviously, Spike knows people are getting cynical about these Kickstarter campaigns . . . especially when they're run by RICH CELEBRITIES.
But Spikes says every penny he collects will go on the screen, not in his pocket. In fact, he's not even taking an upfront fee.
He's trying to raise $1.25 million in a month. As of last night, he had over $50,000 pledged.
O.J. Simpson Is Not Going to Play a "Thinly Veiled Version of Himself" on Charlie Sheen's "Anger Management" Show
O.J. SIMPSON is NOT in talks to join CHARLIE SHEEN'S FX sitcom, "Anger Management", despite what his people would have you believe.
Norman Pardo . . . O.J.'s so-called "promoter" . . . told the "New York Post" that he's pitched the idea to FX . . . and he said someone there told him, quote, "'Anger Management' with O.J. Simpson? That would be a perfect fit!"
Pardo added, quote, "O.J. would play a thinly veiled version of himself: A famous con who's pissed off about being unjustly incarcerated."
But a source from the network says this is NEVER going to happen.
Of course, one of the main obstacles is the fact that THE JUICE IS NOT LOOSE. O.J. is only five years into his 33-year sentence at a Nevada prison, and has four more years before he's even eligible for parole.
