Mantrums and tears

Jon Glosselin's twenty-two year old girlfriend told The Insider that daddy dearest Jon is fond of mantrums, that he likes to take his anger and frustrations out on her.....oh, what a keeper! She is quoted as as saying, I don't want to leave him all alone," she says. "At the end of the day, I love him but I dislike him at times. When I love someone I would never hurt them." Okay, think about what you just said, sweetie. When you love someone I would never hurt them - so why be with someone who hurts you? Ah, to be twenty-two again and have your whole life ahead of you, dating a selfish man-boy - I am jealous!

I then read that Corey Feldman is reeling after his wife of seven years filed for divorce. He released the following statement to the press: "Corey is deeply hurt and saddened by this unexpected change in their relationship, and has done nothing to contribute to the demise of the marriage." Okay, thats a weird statement, its as if he is professing his innocence as everyone will assume that the 80s child star, former BFF of Michael Jackson and Corey Haim, would be the root of the problem. Granted, I didn't give the poor boy much credit considering his drug-ridden past -but a cat can change its stripes. Maybe its that they met while he was "starring" on The Surreal Life" at a club that made me think it wouldn't work. Maybe it was when they had MC Hammer officiate the ceremony - how can anyone take that seriously? Maybe it was when the two Coreys starred in their own reality show - gawd, that would put a strain on anyone's marriage. It is sad when love doesn't triumph-and I mean that sincerely.

Perhaps Corey and Jon can become roommates - that's my answer to manturms and tears, because misery does love company. Oh, and then they could make a reality show too, cuz you gotta keep the income coming in.....child support and all.

Classic example of bad parenting

Dear Dad

What were you thinking? How did performing a circumcision on your defenceless four year old son with a razor and no freezing agent seem like a good idea? Of all the things to get in your crazy head - this is it? So, after a series of misfortunes, you decide that the only way to make things right with God is to circumcise you and your son -really? Was there no fattened calf to offer at the alter?

What I don't get is how, after botching your own (penis turned black, only able to cut half of the foreskin off, can't stop bleeding) you decide to still circumcise your son. I loved that you researched this on the Internet, read the bible and listened to the radio to learn how to perform this surgery. And it was very considerate of you to ask your 4 year old if you could perform this procedure as we all know how rational children are at that age, especially when you promise ice cream and being allowed to watch any movie the child desires for a week. Hell, I'd say yes!

And your defence is religious freedom. Here is my thought: go ahead and do what you want to your body. Feel free to cut off whatever piece you think God may want -slice away! However, hands off your son. I am wondering where mom was during all this because I have to say that if this happened in my house....yea, it wouldn't have. Said man would have been kicked to the curb with his trusty bible way before we would have gotten to the planning stage.

In the future, if in doubt, ask yourself: What would Jesus do? Because I have to say, I don't think he would have done that....I really don't.

Family - gotta love them

If I was Billy Baldwin, I would be a bit pissed at my sister-in-law, Mackenzie, for sharing her deep dark secret on national television with tv-guru Oprah because it thrusts everyone into the spotlight, and causes tongues to wag in unwanted directions . What does one gain by coming foward with the news that she had a 10-year consensual sexual relationship with her father (also known as incest); and how does this effect the other siblings? If you are her sister, you have to make it crystal clear that this had nothing to do with you and either support her claims or adamently deny them. Then this can add more fuel to the media machine....perfect! Does anyone have a book coming out? Why yes! An album? Perhaps? How about some acting gigs? Ga-ching! As you tab the tears with kleenex in one hand, make sure to hold up your new book with the other!

Did it happen? I don't know - I wasn't there. What does concern me is that the other person involved is this deep dark secret died 8 years ago; and, as we all know, dead men don't tell tales. All I do know is that holidays just got a whole lot more complicated for the Baldwins.....
