• Congratulations to Claire Danes and
Jordan Catalano Hugh Dancy, who are expecting their first child. Expecting it to do what, no one is saying. [People]
• Congrats also to Matthew McConaughey and Camila Alves, who are expecting their third child. By now they must have some idea of what to expect. [People]
• And congratulations to Gilles Marini who is
pregnant and expecting his (my bad; habit) now an American citizen. Marini, whose derriere work we all very much enjoyed in the first Sex and the City movie, was born in France. True story: I once met Marini at a photo shoot. He was nice. That is all. [People]
• If you’ll recall, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner had a baby four months ago. This is what said baby looks like. [People]
• Howie Mandel called the cops when he thought he heard people having sex in his bathroom this morning at around 1 a.m. Turns out, there were people having sex in his bathroom, because he was having a 4th of July party and forgot, I guess, that people were over? Mandel’s Got Talent — for being a total buzzkill, dude. [TMZ]
• Wondering how Katie Holmes is doing since her split with Tom Cruise? She’s “all right. Thanks.” Still don’t believe her? Here’s a photo of Holmes and daughter Suri gazing lovingly at each other
in relief while eating ice cream shortly after she filed for divorce. [People]
• Sources close to Tom Cruise (the voices in his head?) say that Katie is using Suri as a weapon in this divorce thing, A cudgel, maybe, or a tiny little mace in kitten heels. [TMZ]
• Madonna broke down in tears while performing “Like a Virgin” at a tour stop in Berlin. People aren’t sure what caused the malfunction that allowed her to display human emotion in public, but it could be that she actually heard herself singing and was touched for the very first time. With nausea (ZING!). [Opposing views]
So, on Tuesday I mentioned that 4th of July is when Crazy Days and Nights (CDaN) reveals blind items. Here are a couple of those BIs, and you can find more here.
• Blind item revealed: “Two couples and two babies but so entwined. So, the first couple to get pregnant consists of a female celebrity who used to be a singer and probably wishes she still was and that people would come watch her perform. Meanwhile she will just keep doing things here and there on tv and doing regular work too. She loved having the attention of being pregnant and having the world focused on her and then along comes this other couple. This couple consists of a female celebrity who just tries to keep working and her husband who also used to be a singer and probably wishes he still was and that people would come watch him perform. Meanwhile he will just keep doing things here and there on tv. As soon as celebrity couple #2 became pregnant, celebrity female #1 started talking smack non stop top anyone who would listen about the other couple. I mean we are talking world class trash talking here. Who knew she had it in her. Meanwhile the celebrity female #2 wanted people to stop talking about female celebrity #1′s baby all the time. Unlike female celebrity #1 though, she did not talk smack to anyone and just let it all fall off her shoulders and has been amazingly nice. Well, the two worlds collided a few months ago in a big way. It turns out the celebrity females have the same doctor and ended up having an appointment at exactly the same time. The two of them in a waiting room together. Pretending the other didn’t exist. No one else there. Just the two of them. Not even a word. Not even an acknowledgment.”

• Blind item revealed: “Talk about not having a say in the naming of your child. This actress who is C list based on talent and A list based on name recognition has been told by her husband what they are naming the baby and he has already trademarked the baby’s name even though she is not even halfway through her pregnancy. Apparently the husband has already even drawn up business plans and wants the actress to focus more on marketing products he thinks will be a fit between her and the baby. Does she have a say in this? Not really.”

• Blind item revealed: “What former A list actress who seemed to be in every movie made over a 5 year period and now is maybe a C spent all of a recent coast to coast airplane flight in first class while her daughter and nanny flew in coach. It might be nice to at least go back and visit them. Oh, and she also refused a flight attendant’s request for a photograph by saying she does not do those. And everyone used to think she was so sweet.”

• Blind item revealed: “So, this actress was A list. She was on top of the world and then got sucked into the lies of an A list movie actor and lost it all. Why? Because he was bored and placed a bet with crew members that he could get her to have sex with him. The bet was that he could get her to have sex in 10 different locations before the end of the movie. He won easily. She was always a bed and lights off person, but she did everything for him and anything he wanted.
She was married at the time and had some on set flirtations but nothing beyond that even though her husband cheated on her frequently. She was going to be the good one in the relationship. She liked her martyr role. She liked being able to throw it into her husband’s face whenever they argued which was often. There was no joy, but she was faithful at least until she met the A list actor that would change her life forever. He was bored. He was in the middle of nowhere and the drinking options were limited. He did like the crew though. He always got on with the crew. he also like getting it on with local women and extras and any other woman who was willing. The problem was there just weren’t that many. So, one night when he was drinking he made a bet with the crew that he could get his co-star to have sex with him. The crew didn’t think it was much of a challenge so the ten locations was added.
The actor started the next day and it took entire days of talking to her and wearing her down. He gave up drinking for three days just so he could talk to her into the night. He turned on that A list actor charm and finally wore her down. They hooked up. All the time and everywhere. She was not just in this for the sex though, she had fallen in love with the actor. When she told him she was going to leave her husband, he was not even paying attention or it didn’t register, but she did that and when she did, that was the end. Her A listness was over permanently. His A listness took a huge hit and took years and years to even come close to coming back. When he told her that he just was not interested in her that way and didn’t want to be with her forever, it crushed her. It took her a few years to just get over that. She had given up everything and all he wanted was sex.”

• Blind item revealed: “Which A+ list movie actress who is not married, but might as well be, went and asked for this B list movie actress phone number at the SAG Awards and then after she got it, kissed the actress on the neck and gave her a little bite. Oh yes, this will be revealed.”
