Either Sarah Jessica Parker Is Promoting Her New Perfume Or They’re Doing a Sequel to Hocus Pocus

Does her nose always look that awful?

How could I have missed a thing like that?

I think that’s her new perfume, Covet, she’s holding, but I can’t be sure, as my eyes can only move so far away from her nose before being dragged back by its sheer gravitational pull.

Maybe I should get my computer monitor checked? I mean, is that what her nose has always looked like?


All Grown Up!

Look who’s not a baby anymore!

Celine Dion hangs out with her son, Rene-Charles, in Paris today. Her husband was there, too, but he’s boring and he started dating her when she was like 12 so we don’t like to talk about him.

Rene-Charles is seven years old already!

And apparently he’s growing more punk-rock by the day.

And what is it with celebrities being unwilling to cut their sons’ hair? Celine, why does your seven-year-old son look like he belongs in Metallica?

Does Anyone Else Watch Jon & Kate Plus Eight?

This is the new show that I’m a little bit obsessed with, and I desperately need someone to talk to about it and none of my real-life friends watch it. So I’m gonna try with you guys.

It’s a reality show on TLC, on Monday nights, but reruns show up all the time.

Here’s the basics: Jon & Kate got married. Jon & Kate had twin girls, Cara and Madelyn. And then they decided to try for just one more, and ended up with sextuplets, three girls and three boys. So now Jon & Kate have eight children. The twin girls are seven years old and the babies are 3 1/2. And the show is about their life.

At first I started watching it because I was like “Awww, babies! Babies are cute!” And the babies are cute, and it’s fascinating to watch how intelligent and aware and communicative children are at just 3 years old, but what got me hooked is the relationship between Kate and Jon.

I mean, is it just me, or does Jon absolutely hate Kate? I mean, Kate, while doing her very best to be a good mother, is totally neurotic and overbearing and controlling and just plain old mean to Jon. She corrects his grammar constantly, tells him how stupid and inconsiderate he is, and at one point even yells at him for breathing too loud. And Jon kind of takes it in stride because he loves his kids, but I think somewhere deep down he really just wants to murder Kate and dump her body in a river, and frankly I don’t blame him. But it’s hilarious to watch.

Is anyone else picking this up, or is this just how all married couples with children interact? If so, maybe marriage and children are overrated …
