Welcome back to Midweek Madness, in which Margaret and I bask in sunny rays of gossip. This week: The Jolie-Pitt kids curse in French; Katie wanders Prague saddened by Scientology; Jennifer Grey is awesome; Rachel Zoe is pregnant.
"Losing Her Baby."
Amber from Teen Mom will be interviewed by child protective services next week, and since she has been seen on TV hitting her boyfriend, a source says, "I'm sure she's freaking out over the possibility that she could lose her baby." The story that should have been on the cover is an exclusive with Mario Lopez and his new baby. As Margaret points out, the one thing Ok! does well is exclusive wedding and baby shit. Plus, there's a really nice shot of Mario holding his daughter Gia (see image 7) that would have made a really nice cover! What American lady standing in a checkout line at the supermarket wouldn't pick up the issue with shirtless Slater holding a cute baby? That right there is magazine gold. The only way this ovary-bursting goodness could be improved would be to replace that baby with an orphaned fennec fox. Anyway. There are tender kissy pictures inside, and pictures of the nursery (which was inspired by J. Lo's nursery. No, really) and Margaret says, "It didn't make me barf." Lastly, in a feature called "The Big Debate," which is red, white and blue, like a political commentary page, two psychotherapists with conflicting opinions weight in on who is to blame for Lindsay's problems — Dina or Michael? (see image 8).
