Every Wednesday, we do Midweek Madness, in which Margaret and I sample the flavors in the weekly gossip tabloids. This week: Jesse James poses as Hitler and has a foursome with someone named Skittles.
"New Moms Fight Back!"
Kendra and Kourtney continue to get tabloid covers for reasons we cannot explain. This week we learned that Hank Sr. changes diapers, and when Kendra was in NYC, Hank texted her a picture of the baby's poop. Kendra says of parenting: "You have to talk about the birds and the bees, the drugs and the alcohol. Hank Jr. is going to want to try it once. And I'd rather him drink a beer in front of my face than not." Um, okay. As for Kourtney, she says "Scott and I are together and very happy. Period." Why yes, this is painfully boring. Moving on: Sandra Bullock will have a "secret meeting" with stepdaughter Sunny soon; Sandra wants to reassure Sunny that she'll always love her and be there for her. Next: Dancing With The Stars contestants Shannen Doherty and Pamela Anderson "cannot stand each other." "Each of them likes to think they are the bigger star than the other." Margaret asks, "Aren't they kind of equally washed up?" Taylor Swift is "torn between two loves": Cory Monteith Finn from Glee and Taylor Lautner. But the Taylors are "just good friends," while Taylor and Cory have been quietly dating. An insider says: "Taylor has a good thing going with Cory. He's handsome and successful, and he treats her like a princesss." In other snoozefest news, we have details and pictures from Bethenny Frankel's wedding. They got married at the Four Seasons restaurant; her mermaid-style dress is by Amsale (see image 7); the Housewives who attended were Ramona Singer and Alex McCord; the first song was to Alicia Keys' "No One." Boring, and kinda trashy.
