The book that Alicia Silverstone read in the 9th grade that said "'Tis a far, far better thing doing stuff for other people" clearly had an effect on her; she's long been a vegan PETA supporter, and now she's adding breastfeeding advocacy to her repertoire.

Silverstone announced "The Kind Mama Milk Share" on her blog, having been inspired by a friend unable to produce breast milk or find donor milk that was definitely safe for her baby. "If you have milk to share—post it! If you are in need of milk—post it! Think of all the babies we can help raise together!"

The post has already garnered tons of replies, both from women in need and women — often vegetarian, vegan, raw or gluten-free women, at that — willing to provide their breast milk. Whether this is more philanthropic than setting Ms. Geist up with Mr. Hall remains to be seen. [NYDN]

Paris Jackson's transfer from the UCLA medical center to a rehab facility in Utah has been rejected because the facility is worried about the paparazzi swarming. Which is ridiculous if the place is Cirque Lodge — and there is a good chance it is — because they have hosted Demi Moore, Lindsay Lohan, Kirsten Dunst and Mary Kate Olsen, among others. It was chosen by Debbie Rowe, who is unsatisfied with the other options, so the search continues.

Rowe says Paris has a message for her fans: "My daughter has asked that I extend a huge thank you for all your thoughts and prayers and support... She's strong like her father." [TMZ, People]

It's not just a THEORY that Kaley Cuocco and Henry Cavill are BIG BANGING (sorry), because the two have apparently been dating for about a month and are "completely in lust wth each other." They have not gone public yet, but Cuocco tweeted a picture of herself staring adoringly up at a Man of Steel poster. Anyway. Big banging. [Us Weekly]

My freezer died in the middle of the night last night taking with it about 10 days worth of frozen breast milk. Fuck the hundreds of dollars of frozen meat and other food. That milk was priceless. I can imagine how wonderful having a "milk swap" is for moms who realize they can't pump enough for the day and have to go to work, or can't nurse period. It's an awesome idea.
