In the latest shocking divorce news, Mayim Bialik announced on the parenting blog Kveller that, after nine years of marriage, she and Michael Stone will be parting ways, but she assured the public that her enthusiasm for "attachment parenting" had nothing to do with the split. "The hands-on style of parenting we practice played no role in the changes that led to this decision," said Blossom in her video diary, "relationships are complicated no matter what style of parenting you choose."

  • Even though Daniel Craig may drive Aston Martins expertly in the moving pictures, he's really just pretending, which means that he had to go to the New York State DMV and deal with the same crushing bureaucratic machinery as a normal human. Daniel Craig being told, "Sir, you're only supposed to fill out one side of this form. Get out of line and do it again" = James Bond illusion shattered. [Telegraph]
  • The Daily News dredged up Jennifer Aniston's seventh grade "boyfriend," i.e. person Jennifer Aniston held hands with a few times at the roller rink and maybe kissed awkwardly once while listening to two-and-a-half tracks from Janis Joplin's Cheap Thrills, in order for him to creepily tell everyone how good a kisser seventh-grade Jennifer Aniston was. Also, his first name is Adonis because of course it is. [NYDN]

  • Professional ass bucket Brian Kilmeade said in a fit of aneurysm-inducing misogyny last weekend that Fox hires female co-hosts by picking them out of a Victoria's Secret catalogue. Detestable as Kilmeade may be, it is my unfortunate duty to report that Kimberly Guilfoyle, a Fox legal analyst who is frequently interrupted by Bill O'Reilly, in fact modeled lingerie for Bethany Whisper Victoria's Secret when she was a law student.

  • Nicki Minaj didn't attend her album-release party Tuesday because her boyfriend is an asshole. [NYDN]
  • Rihanna's latest single "Diamonds" topped the Billboard "Hot 100" chart, making it her 12th number one hit. Maybe send her a fruit basket or something. [BBC]
  • Amy Poehler told everyone to "lower" their expectations for her Golden Globes hosting gig, probably because she's going to get totally wasted like everyone else does at the Golden Globes. [HuffPo
  • Scarlett Johansson is turning 28 today, which I guess means that everyone should have double dessert at Thanksgiving dinner to, you know, celebrate. [E!]
  • Lindsay Lohan might want to adopt a baby boy, according to a baseless rumor started, no doubt, by notorious gossip-monger Sasquatch. [Crazy Days and Nights]
  • Barbara Walters forgives Lindsay for blowing off a sit-down tête-à-tête. [TV Guide]

I feel like the people who are coming forward to accuse Kevin Clash of having physical relationships with them when they were underage are simply looking to cash in. Not to say that they are lying, it just seems odd. If it had such a debilitating impact, why wait so long? There is always the possibility that they have been suffering for years and have not been able to come forward until just seems a little opportunistic with him becoming more well known after the documentary that he did and the increased attention he is receiving as a result. Maybe I'm just having a hard time separating the man from the muppet. I do love the Sesame Street.
