Random Photos Part One

Five parts today.

Olivia Wilde made her first red carpet appearance since giving birth last week. Jason Sudeikis looks like he is a very tired guy.

At the same event were Suze Orman and Chelsea Handler.
Prince Harry and
William went to Rendezvous in Memphis last night. I love that place. I am a dry fan.
Rita Ora wears a dress from the Jeff Lewis paint collection.
Amanda Seyfried in Elle.
Long time no see in the photos for Salma Hayek.
The world thinks Tori Spelling is took skinny so she took paps and her reality crew to a burger place.
Zach Braff riding through the streets of NYC.

Amanda Seyfreid is truly all eyes

I think Rita Whaserface looks nice here

LottaColada said...

Tori is morphing into Donatella

Prince Hot Ginge

Principessa Marina said...

Have you seen Salma Hayek's little girl? NOT pretty.

TalksTooMuch said...

Seriously, Marina? You're gonna talk shite about some little kid?

Principessa Marina said...

Valentina Paloma Pinault:

Principessa Marina said...

Seriously TalksTooMuch, you have standards? And that's where you draw the line? Let me send you the bill for the coffee I just spewed all over my keyboard when I read your comment.

loopymommy said...

If Whora's dress was made of chips from the Jeff Lewis paint line, it would have 17,000 different shades of gray (no book pun intended, obviously).

parissucksliterally said...

Principessa, Salma's little girl looks like her Dad. Like Jessica Alba's poor daughters.


Beautiful pic of Seyfried...

Paint Chips said...

Amanda Seyfried is channeling Sharon Tate, beautiful.

sandybrook said...

That wasn't the Rota Whora pic I requested this morning to make up for Francis wee wee Enty. :(

Olivia gave birth last week and didn't drop the weight yet? What's wring with her??

parissucksliterally said...

*stands with Principessa*

I comment on kids. They are people too. Some are gorgeous, some are plain, some are ugly. It is the truth. It's not like they are reading this anyway!

GatorGirl said...

Not a huge Rendezvous fan. Now Uncle Lous chicken in Memphis is awesomeness wrapped up in love. ..
And damn Tori eat something from somewhere!

sandybrook said...

*Rita* Franco 's*

Violet said...

Olivia gave birth last week - and she's out fame whoring herself on the red carpet already. I'm not judging (yes, I am) but who leaves their one week old baby (both parents).

Cocoa said...

Clicky link:

This little girl looks tired and/or sad. I'll bet her smile would light up her face. Could be just a bad day.

TalksTooMuch said...

Seriously, Marina, how about we confine it to those in the public eye or even those in the actual picture? Go ahead and send me the bill, I'm at 100 Get Bent lane. I'll make sure my car's in the garage just in case

Sugar said...

My friends in Memphis are FREAKING out about the Royals. I know people who know people who know the girl who is getting married. Yeah.

Dallas Alice said...

Sorry Enty, but Texas BBQ FTW. Come on down here, I'll help fatten you up...more.

teresa crane said...

Olivia should be at home, resting and taking good care of herself. I'm glad Jason looks tired - means he is participating in child care!!

Tori UGH.



Dallas Alice said...

Geezus--don't talk shit about kids!! C'mon!

Tina Mallette said...

don't get the negativity for OW

she could have one or more grandmothers looking after the treasured one or other trusty relatives or nannies, and have already learned how to utilize the breast pump and/or opted out of breastfeeding?

They may have been there just a couple hours or she left early etc etc. The baby will survive undamaged psychologically I imagine.

Tricia Shaw said...

Rita Ora looks like a 40 yr old diner waitress...what is she 23..how sad she living that hard

Amanda is gorgeous....I bet Blohan looks at pix of her..and JLaw and wants to scream that they have a career and beauty,she will never have again....that twat

OT..Kerry Washington had her baby 2weeks ago secretly...think it's cause it probably white(and Tony Goldwyns????) sorry that marriage to the gay ex baller seems weeeiird

Angela said...

One of my perfect dates started at Rendezvous and ended at The Peabody 3 days later.

Tori, you reap what you sow. Eat a damn sandwich and get your poor kids out of your RIDICULOUS 'reality' show.

parissucksliterally said...

You guys can get offended, it's your right. But people are not going to stop commenting on kids. Again, they are not reading this stuff.

Dallas Alice said...

This stuff doesn't vanish--the interwebs live forever. Just imagine having to live your life under the spotlight of your fame-hungry parents...while EVERY move you make is documented for perpetuity.

TalksTooMuch said...

Not yet, anyway, psl. But the kiddo isn't even in the picture, that didn't sound like random shit-talking about some non-famous kid to you??

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

In all fairness, lap humans can very well grow into gorgeous, freestanding humans. With Selma as her momma? Please.

Gayeld said...

@Wendy, I mean Principessa Marina. Don't you have anything better to do with your weekend pass than come here and try to start a fight every month?

Cocoa said...

According to my sixth grade school picture, I am part chipmunk, and part crazy-eyed hippie. Turns out, I'm nothing like that kid now.

Sugar said...

It does seem unnecessarily cruel to mock/judge innocents like that but I do have to admit, I've had some unfriendly thoughts mulling around in my head about how some celebrity kids look. But I don't really voice them.

parissucksliterally said...

TTM, I see your point. :)


But I comment on kids, I guess I am mean....(I love kids, I work with them - I would never let any child I meet know if I find them annoying or unattractive).

I guess if people can say, "Who cares, it's the internet" about spelling and grammar, they can say it about comments on kids too. ;)

Snapdragon said...

I cannot see a picture of Zach Braff without thinking of that SNL 'Spanish language show' skit, and the way they say his name: ZACHBRAFF!

Principessa Marina said...

Seriously TTM how about we confine it to you comment on whatever the hell you damn like and I do the same.

I know you think you are the President of the Cool Girls' Club on here (which - kinda pitiful) but I comment on whatever I like.

And as @paris says, it's not like little Valentina or her mother or her father or any of their social set reads CDAN or is going to give a flying fuck what you or I write.

And keeping it real, this entire SITE is about inappropriate vulgar curiosity, speculation and comments about famous people. Anybody who hangs out on CDAN, myself included, is basically a celebrity crotch-sniffer.

It's OK to speculate about who's banging whom, or who's taking drugs, and it's OK to comment on adult people's clothes, but according to you (self-appointed hall monitor) it's not OK to say a little girl isn't pretty.

We're going to have to agree to disagree on what I or anybody else is allowed to say on here.

Of course it's your right to disapprove. And it's my right to call you out for being a hypocrite.

Principessa Marina said...

@Kristen, it would be great if Valentina Paloma Pinault grew up to be pretty - after all her father isn't bad looking and her mother is drop-dead gorgeous.

But, as Exhibit A, I give you: Bobbi Kristina Brown

Doing a lateral ... one time I was working on an alumni event with a guy who, god bless him, was one of the homeliest people I'd ever met. At the actual event, his wife joined him. You know how they say people marry people who are roughly as good-looking as they are? Yup. (of course, that's if you leave money out of the equation)

So, he had mentioned to me during one of the many late nights we were slaving over this event, that his daughter, then about a year old, was the most gorgeous child in the world.

I never met the kid. But I was doubtful about that claim.

Then, fast forward about a year, I'm coming out of a bank and I see this stroller, and sitting in it is one of the most beautiful children I had ever seen. I literally stopped to gape at her. Then I hear somebody say "Marina!" I look up and here comes my friend from the alumni event. It was his child!!!

msgirl said...

If I know a kid in real that's I'd certainly comment to close friend, nothing wrong with bring honest. But I also know
It could be just a stage, and she might grow into her looks. Besides even if she doesn't it's not that important, beauty is fleeting and not all important.

TalksTooMuch said...

I think, psl, you meant to comment on my punctuation, it's truly terrible. I sometimes try on the other stuff. ;)

TalksTooMuch said...

Sometimes, Marina, I just like to hear you go on. And on. And on.

Renoblondee said...

Excuse me, but NC BBQ is ze best! ;)

Sugar said...

Cool story, Princess!

Dallas Alice said...

Sorry Reno, but NO

Cee Kay said...

Tori's eyes are completely dead.

Okay, I looked at the Valentina pics. While the first one was definitely unflattering, there were others that show she's quite a lovely little girl. Definitely not the typical plastic Cali girl we usually see!

Seven of Eleven said...

Wait, whaaat? There was another election that I didn't get a ballot for?

side eye

TalksTooMuch said...

That's what I was gonna say, Seven! You're totally the president, I just carry stuff. That's probably because I don't have any Standards

Seven of Eleven said...

No way am I the president of anything! Maybe acting co-secretary of gifville, but otherwise, nope, nope, nope, I don't roll that way. Can I volunteer VIP as tribute?

This does, however, remind me of the post where Lubricant said that there's no way another commenter's four year old daughter would ever be "hot enough to snag a Jonas".

Principessa Marina said...

Cee Kay, re: Valentina I fear you're being generous but it's true, people sometimes blossom as they get older.

In her case, I fear the best she can hope for is jolie laide.

Principessa Marina said...

And if I had to choose between being a plastic Cali type (which, you're right - boring) or being jolie laide, I'd take the latter.

I saw a woman in a cafe the other day, everything was wrong with her face, but somehow I couldn't take my eyes off her, she was just so magnetic and - even glamorous in some bizarre way. I actually snapped a photo of her with my cell phone but it came out blurry (made sure she didn't know I was doing it). Normally I ask permission to take photos of people but - how was I going to phrase this that I wasn't insulting her? I never posted it anywhere, I just wanted it for myself, to remind myself that beauty is sometimes more than the sum of the parts.

That's the thing about Hollywood stars who hire stylists and get clothes and accessories loaned to them - even when they look great, they all look sort of alike. My mom used to call them "thousand-uplets."

lauramart said...

That's the joys of public forum, anyone can comment. I believe the common saying here is "if you don't like it, scroll past it".

BeeZwaxx said...

Wow that's a little rough TTM...

surfer said...

@TTM - can I join your club, lol? And not for nothing Marina, but taking a shot at a kid who's not in the pics, is low. Even for you.

TalksTooMuch said...

That's rough of me, BeeZwaxx??

VIPblonde said...

@Seven Someone once said that @Count Jerkula and I are the King and Queen of the CDaN prom. Whatevs, I'll take it ;)

Cocoa said...

It's OK to speculate about who's banging whom, or who's taking drugs, and it's OK to comment on adult people's clothes, but according to you (self-appointed hall monitor) it's not OK to say a little girl isn't pretty.

The banging, drug using and ugly clothes-wearing are all choices. How a little girl looks is not her choice, nor can she do anything about it - she's a little kid.

Thomas Fisher said...

Wow, Olivia looking fantastic. You cannot say trhat she gave birth 11 days ago on that picture.

I have no problem with parents who take a 2-3 hour break from their baby. They have 4 siblings, 3 living in NYC, so one of them could easily look after the baby. Babysitting has a tradiotion in Olivia's family anyway. The late Christopher Hitchens was her babysitter at some point, she returned the favor being the babysitter of Hitch's daughter later.

Principessa Marina said...

@surfer - "even for you?" Wow, I have a reputation on CDAN. I'm flattered!

Since I don't even recognize your handle, I'm almost flattered that I'm apparently on your radar, and am wondering how I got there.

So...please refresh my memory about exactly what I have said on here that you consider "low." I'm avidly curious at this point.


As for "taking a shot" at a kid - I'm commenting on a celebrity child and as far as I remember, I said "not pretty." That's what we do on CDAN, we comment on celebrities' lives.

Is there some CDAN rulebook? I mean, other than in your and TTM's heads that is, being made up as you go along. I'd like to see the sub-clause where Enty says "please confine yourself to only commenting about people who are actually in photos I post, and not any of their relatives, and please confine yourself to speculating about their drug use, sex habits, STDs, eating disorders, plastic surgery, infidelities, social climbing, domestic violence, pedophilia, hebophilia, clothing, and finances... but don't comment on what their kids look like. Cuz THAT? Would be "low."

I haven't seen that rule book or any such sub-clause.

But then I'm not in the cool kids' club - maybe Enty only passes out the manual to people who are. Like you and TTM.

In my life my own values have served me quite well, so I hope you'll excuse me if I don't take etiquette lessons from COMPLETE STRANGERS on a celebrity gossip site.

Principessa Marina said...

You know, all snark aside, I'm actually very interested in this conversation/debate about what is/isn't appropriate and would like to continue it.

But I gotta take my dog to the vet so I can't post again right now.

Maybe later. Or I might run out of steam. We'll see.

surfer said...

Principessa Marina said...

"In my life my own values have served me quite well."

Said the Yale-educated woman who gleefully shared how she keyed someone's car, and had no regrets for doing so.

Hahaha.

Leekalicious said...

@Principessa Marina There is no *manual*. Certain patterns form over time re what people will object to. Whenever someone criticizes a small child, the pattern is that people defend the child - especially (but not always) if they have children of their own. If nobody spoke up about anything on CDAN, it would end up a trollfest like Perez Hilton. Bad celeb behaviour is fair game, but not an innocent child. Adults are the assholes, not children.

Seven of Eleven said...

I need to find this cool kids' club and crash it. And steal their handbook.

I think it might be in a NSWF SPOILER PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK box.

Dallas Alice said...

Leeky ❤️

Dallas Alice said...

If you get your knickers in such a twist over a fucking blog--GAWD help ya...or not.

Leekalicious said...

@Dallas Alice Same back to you!

Dallas Alice said...

MWAH!!

Dallas Alice said...

Geezus Marina, take a Benadryl and go to bed.

ButterKwup said...

On the one hand, I want to say that Salma Hayek and her family could buy and sell us all and that we comment when kids are gorgeous and it should go both ways.

On the other hand, I'm fairly certain Marina is someone who has changed usernames about a dozen times and causes problems all the time.

It is an asshole move to call a kid ugly. Own the assholery and move on.

scarletscout said...


....AND THE DONALD STERLING AWARD FOR SENSITIVITY,MATURITY & WISDOM GOES TO....Playskool Drumroll Please..... The Principessa Marina!! so do people park their jetskis & whalers on you???

Count Jerkula said...

P: Wilde - and her heaving, lactating breasts. You haven't lived until a woman is riding you in cowgirl and trying to squirt breast milk in your mouth.

M: Hayek

B: Seyfried

Dallas Alice said...

Leeky--I'm fairly certain your knickers aren't twisted--that comment wasn't to you.

NaughtyNurse said...

Yay, Zach! Go Tigers!!!

Leekalicious said...

@Dallas Alice LOL!! No worries!

Seven of Eleven said...

@VIP, take it, you've earned it a million times over! FFF FTW!

(Don't let @Count try to convince you tiaras don't necessarily need to be worn on your head, though. Dirty bird.)

sugarbread maker said...

I agree leave the kids out of it. She looks like her dad.

sugarbread maker said...

Beige

sugarbread maker said...

On Wednesdays we wear pink

sugarbread maker said...

On Friday we burn sage so we don't have to rehash. This shite. On Monday.

Seven of Eleven said...

@sugarbread, sigh. I'd be denied membership forthwith, I never wear pink. :/

I'm going to start my own club. On Wednesdays, Thor wears nothing. I think that's a good rule.

sugarbread maker said...

Are you by any chance the Bosworth whisperer? The one that keeps telling her she's curvy and sexy and everyone in Hollywood wants to be her??

sugarbread maker said...

Would somebody please let marina sit next to them at lunch on Monday mmmkay?

parissucksliterally said...

TTM, I was not referring to you - it is something I see on the internet all the time when "ppl wrt like dis", and I mention they should learn how to write. :)


Charity Channing said...

Tori looks so haunted these days

Count Jerkula said...

@VIP: "@Seven Someone once said that @Count Jerkula and I are the King and Queen of the CDaN prom. Whatevs, I'll take it ;) "

I was promoted from Count? Do we get concubines?

I think I would like to expand my fiefdom. Would anyone like to take up arms and invade DListed or Celebitchy? We could troll until I receive 6 buttcheek selfies and VIP gets 6 dick pics as appeasement. Maybe we could form an alliance w/ PerezHilton readers, then pull a double cross when they are no longer needed.

I may prefer Fuhrer or Khal or Czar to King though.

astrogirl said...

It's one thing to have an opinion, another to voice it but do you have to reiterate your point multiple times Marina?? It doesn't reinforce anything except you're an over opinionated wind bag

Cocoa said...

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

VIPblonde said...

@Count ;)

TalksTooMuch said...

Of course it has to be Duke at DListed

TalksTooMuch said...

Of course you can, surfs! How goes the hotel recon? One week!

Seven of Eleven said...

I just CAN'T with the beauty of that gif. So much perfection!

Count me out of a Dlisted invasion, I like those peeps. But if you mount an army against that jerk Perez Hilton, I'll be there for you.

Lila said...

Amanda looks amazing.

surfer said...

I was waiting for my orders, TTM!

I know - so excited!

sugarbread maker said...

@count I haven't gone to Perez in 6 years. But you go ahead

sugarbread maker said...

Throw in naked askars. And baby brother bill and I'm in.

Count Jerkula said...

@VIP: I like the cut of that man's jib. See two 2 soft, round lady parts squished together, and bury your face in them. God bless bras, corsets, tight skirts and yoga pants.

@7 & Sugarbread: I was hoping to use the posters as fodder, so we take less casualties. Like when they enlisted Irish fresh of the boat for the Civil War.

Cocoa: Whatza matta?

Overthrowing Perez site is like Russia taking Crimea by asking : do you want to join? Yes or not answer yes right now? Put in took Crimea like a home girl pms. Takes on the last if the cheese fries. Really not much of a fight overtaking Perez dear. No one will notice or care.

sugarbread maker said...

No I want naked bill!!

sugarbread maker said...

Don't wear sandals to gamble. . Duh!

Bill Skarsgard not fugly Steven Moyer

Count Jerkula said...

This comes up when searching for "Bill Skarsgard nude" (NSFW)

Think he did his own stunts?

You can thank me with a selfie.

Cocoa said...

Cool Kids Club Rule #1:

Also, this: I saw a woman in a cafe the other day, everything was wrong with her face, but somehow I couldn't take my eyes off her, she was just so magnetic and - even glamorous in some bizarre way. I actually snapped a photo of her with my cell phone but it came out blurry (made sure she didn't know I was doing it). is fucking CREEPY.

TalksTooMuch said...

I have to say, though, Cocoa, I did try to take a picture of the Rob Kardashian lookalike at the track the one day. I thought everyone would wanna see! But I didn't think he was magnetic

Kristin (Wiglet) said...

Who is wearing sandals??

I say we link up with The Superficial and deadlift Hollywood Life into rubble. Pick up some extra troops at The Real Emma Watson if we need to.

BeckyMae said...

Yeah +1 @Cocoa that was hella creepy...

I have a personal morality clause in my Manifesto...no Perez ever, even an invasion...he is the lamest of the lame and I'll never give my clicks...but I'd be there in spirit for youse...

TalksTooMuch said...

No worries, psl, txt spk makes me mental too

sugarbread maker said...

That was a boogie nights prosthetic but thanks for trying.

sugarbread maker said...

Ben affleck is banned 4 life from gambling at hard rock 4 card counting. @count said he was using fingers and toes and I said that's why you don't wear sandals to gamble.

Count Jerkula said...

@Cocoa: That is why they call them creep shots and have a website dedicated to them at CreepShots.com. I got those guys to retweet a creepshot I took once. Hot lil broad outside a club in AC. Long, thin, soft cotton skirt that hugged her butt unbelievably.

She was drunk and needed to go to one casino to get her purse from her car, then go to another casino to meet up with a booty call. Too much trouble and the cabbie left. Her and her sober friend were all puzzled about what to do, and I felt it was too creepy to offer her a ride, so I just took a pic of her butt.

She was so drunk she was walking in the street and on the sidewalk barefoot, then started bugging out for a minute or 2 that she lost her shoes. The bug out stopped when she realized she was holding them.

Life would have been so much easier if I was born without a conscience.

TalksTooMuch said...

Hey Seven, what about that new site?? Storm-able?

Seven of Eleven said...

@Count, throwing proles is bad form. Your fiefdom will suffer from leaking the plan beforehand.

@sugarbread, I saw a plate of cheese fries once. I don't know if they taste good, I ran really far and really fast. It had gravy on it and I couldn't wrap my mind around the concept.

TalksTooMuch said...

Seven, you're talking about Poutine! The Canadian National Dish! Along with KD and vienna sausages (blech)

surfer said...

Vienna sausages are a national dish? Blech.

Seven of Eleven said...

@TTM, I'll get in Skeletor trouble if I post the link. :/

I will <3 you forever for the storm-able reference. :D

TalksTooMuch said...

Iknorite, surfer?? So gross. But the mister loves them. What's a better one? Bottled Moose?

Cocoa said...

Thanks. I needed that laugh.

I left a reply for you in the Shitty Video Post.

Count Jerkula said...

@7: If they are reading Perez, they are friggin dumb, so it doesn't matter if we talk about them, in front of them. You could piss on their heads and tell em it is spring rain. They wouldn't know the difference.

In Jersey I believe that concoction is called Disco Fries, blech. Better than Boardwalk Fries (vinegar), can't hold a candle to Chili Cheese Fries (from Windmill or Nathan's) for a post bar munchie fest.

Seven of Eleven said...

@Count, now I've got "Cold November Rain" stuck in my head!

I googled Disco Fries and the first link was to a Paula Deen recipe for fries with cheese and gravy. My urban myth theory has been destroyed!

BeckyMae said...

@TTM what about Tim Bits?? Surely they deserve a title amongst your glorious foods??

Stephen L said...

I think that's the ugliest kid I have ever seen.

I remember back in the day before the internet when Billy Joels daughter was made fun of for looking like her dad instead of christie. This was in print. She's still plugging along.

Hi everyone!

Alita said...

To pick up where my Sugar left off

Tl; dr: wank me

Alita said...

For a ... UNIVERSITY PAPER YOU'RE WRITING?

Dun dun DUNNNNNNN

Stephen L said...

What do the moderators say about length of posts?
I need to know this as I tend to get a bit wordy.

Alita said...

It would be funny to see Count at CB, although I don't think we would - the second he tried to undo Kaiser's, ahem, knot, he's find a honking great stick up there that said "oh hell, some people still remember me from when I was a commenter, and that when I started I wasn't *allowed* to write about La Jolie because I'm so biased," and then he'd be banned.

It's a big stick, you see.

Alita said...

"Moderators"

Lol.

Leekalicious said...

@TTM Every Canadian household has a tin of 5 year old Vienna sausages and prob coconut milk (for recipes you think you'll make but never get around to). Mr. Leek is of Norwegian ancestry and grew up eating sardines. There are at least 25 cans at all times (in case of apocalypse I guess).

Leekalicious said...

@Stephen L All you have to do is put yourself in the child's place. How would you feel reading that about yourself when you're a grownup? People tend to protect children on this forum, anyhow. I'm sure you will be able to find a forum where you can diss kids all you want.

Leekalicious said...

@BeckyMae Are you suggesting that TimBits can be used in a dirty context? Eg. "That's it baby, rub my TimBits"? I've never heard that one, but it's not a bad idea. Different from 'nuts' or 'balls'.

TalksTooMuch said...

Leeky, I can't imagine TimBits in that context just because that's what they call the tiny hockey players they sponsor, right?

And Mr. TalksTooLittle will eat a whole can of vienna sausages at one sitting, drains it and pours in ketchup. Most.disgusting.thing.ever

Leekalicious said...

@TTM Hey girl!! Ewww! That sounds about as appetizing as sardines! God the smell of them.

OMG! Isn't that cute. I didn't know that.

katydid said...

Stephen, are you talking about Alexa Ray Joel? That poor girl has had a suicide attempt, plastic surgery, eating disorders and depression. I think having her looks publicly ridiculed really did a number on her, poor girl.

sugarbread maker said...

And Perez was the 1st to talk smack aboot her too!

Jessi said...

I'm pretty sure that post from Marina would have gotten overlooked on the inter webs but now y'all are at fault for when the poor little girl reads this blog because you all made a huge deal about it!

Leekalicious, you don’t seem to put yourself in the children’s shoes when you speculate publicly about their parents doing drugs and having hookups and threesomes and extramarital affairs. Knowing full well that years from now those children might read what you write about their parents.

So if you think it’s OK for Apple and Moses and Violet and Blue Ivy and all the other celebrity kids to read comments by strangers speculating about their parents’ sex lives and drug habits, don’t get all high and mighty because someone states an opinion that a child is not pretty. Whatever we write here, whether it’s about them or their parents, has the potential to hurt these children if they see it in the future.

So anybody who hangs out posting on CDAN and then criticizes someone else for crossing some imaginary line? Complete hypocrite.

And then, take this real-life scenario I came across.

There’s this woman. Let’s call her IC. Married, has two little boys. She gets pregnant for a third time and – understandably – is hoping for a girl. But newp, third child is also a boy.

IC blogs about her family life frequently. She has a couple of other blogs too. Her blogs are all public – anyone can read them.

It’s fair to assume that when her three boys get older and start using the internet, they are pretty darned likely to come across mommy's blog. More likely than Valentina Pinault is to find a 10 year old comment by a complete stranger on a random celebrity blind site. I mean, Valentina Pinault isn’t going to see CDAN open on mommy’s computer, but these three boys might well come across mommy’s own blog open on her computer one day, don't you think?

How do you think the littlest one will feel when he reads this:

"When I found out I was having another boy, it was like someone I didn't know very well died."

And then Grandma posts this comment:

"I didn't know you were upset that X was a boy."

Really, IC? It's not ok to say some celebrity's daughter is plain but it's ok to post on the internet that you wish your third child had never been born? Because make no mistake, that’s what he’ll believe you meant when he reads that.

None of you knows whether CDAN blinds are true. None of you knows how well Enty checks his sources, if at all. He has to feed the beast (us) every single day, seven days a week. How thorough can he be in checking his sources? A journalist requires verification from two credible sources, but the disclaimer on the home page makes it clear that there are NO standards when posting blinds.

It's amazing to me that he hasn't yet been sued for libel. Even with that lame-ass disclaimer.

But even knowing that most of the celebrities we guess on these blinds are not the person in question, we name them anyway. Not only are the blinds intrusive and voyeuristic, but our speculation in the comments can also damage people's careers.

I have been feeling increasingly slimy just reading CDAN every day, let alone posting here. When I said crotch-sniffing, that’s exactly what it feels like.

I have a lot of Facebook friends who are in animal rescue. Jennifer Pryor, Richard Pryor's widow, is one of them. She has devoted her life to animal rescue. Katherine Heigl – a favorite target on CDAN - founded the Jason Heigl foundation with her mother in memory of her brother who died – I see posts all the time about animals they rescue. I’ve donated money to help them.

I'd rather admire these celebrities for doing good in the world, than paw through their virtual underwear drawers looking for semen stains and cocaine dust – which is basically what we do on CDAN.

So, I’m really grateful for this thread because it has finally helped me to crystallize my thinking.

I’m better than this. I’m wasting my time on here. I don’t like myself when I’m lurking or posting here. It’s beneath me. It’s beneath you too, but that’s your choice. Pretty it up with moralizing but really – this is not what decent adults should be doing with their time. No wonder we all use fake handles instead of our real names.

So, since this is my last post on CDAN, I’ll leave you with the car keying story. Go for it if you think I did anything wrong, but remember you’re writing it for each other because I’ve already set up a message rule to send future emails from CDAN straight to my junk folder. I’m going cold turkey!

This was about 8 years ago. I was standing at a streetcorner when I heard a dog start shrieking in the distance. I looked in that direction and saw people gathering around a dog lying in the street a block away, and an SUV barreling down the street toward me with a man sprinting behind it screaming “Stop! You just hit a dog!” The SUV stopped at the red light right next to me and I saw the driver was a woman yakking on her cell phone. Realizing what had happened I stepped into the crosswalk in front of the SUV, waving my hands to get the woman’s attention. She ignored me like I was some homeless person asking to wash her windshield. In a few seconds when the light turned green, she honked at me to get out of her way, and when I didn’t move she began inching forward. Without consciously forming the intention to do so, I found my keys in my hand, and I raked them across her hood.

Did I really need to do that? I don’t know. It did get her to stop and pull over. But yes, it was also partly a Fried Green Tomatoes moment. Her attitude, the sound of the dog screaming, I went to flash point in less than 5 seconds. And 5 seconds after that I was completely calm again. Nothing like that had ever happened to me before.

The man arrived at that point, and the woman got out of her car, screaming at me for keying it. A Good Samaritan loaded the dog and owner into his car and off they went to the ER. The woman denied that she’d hit a dog (she probably hadn’t even realized it because she had been on her cell phone) – and seemed more concerned wth the damage to her car. People were aghast at her attitude. I saw one person take her photo and another snap her license plate. The woman demanded my ID, I gave it to her, I asked for hers, she refused, got in her car and drove off.

I exchanged phone numbers with the other witnesses in case the dog’s owner needed to trace the driver through her license plate. A couple of days later her insurance company sent me a letter and I called them and spoke with an adjuster. Told him everything. He never followed up with me.

I found the owner through the ER hospital and gave her all the info I had, and she filed a claim and got her huge vet bills paid. The dog pulled through.

Bottom line - I sleep fine at night.

Principessa out. With gratitude to you all for waking me up to my own hypocrisy. Today I got up and didn’t sniff anybody’s crotch. It felt good. You should try it.

That's why I don't use my real name. But just like you I use my real face in my profile photo. I might be too easy to identify by my profile picture. I hope I don't have to take a new selfie.

TalksTooMuch said...

Psst: talkstoomuch isn't actually my name! I knorite??

That's pretty twisted, TTM.

Love the way she announces she set up a message rule to send future emails from CDAN straight to her junk folder. (She's going cold turkey!). Except...there's no e-mail address attached to her profile. Yale genius she is!

And you can bet not only will she still be reading, she'll most likely start posting under another pseudonym.

Yay, it's been over a week since someone has lost it on here!! I've missed it so!!! (Heavy sarcasm)

sugarbread maker said...

Rach-a-round. Is not taken anymore right?

Jessi said...

Oh and yes well aware I don't have to read the post but I'm so fucking nosey I can't stop!!!

Seven of Eleven said...

@Principessa, I'm tardy to the party, but whatever. I open up my email to get your Thorn Birds rant against someone who disagreed with you.

Thank you for your flounce out, I hope we don't have to view your nether regions in a kerfluffle again. Or maybe we will at the Yale high school reunion. We won't cry for you, Argentina.

Like I said, effin creepy!

I don't know whether to barf or barricade the door.

We've got your back, TTM. :-)

I hope you do come back Princess.
Everyone sees this dogpile and the people involved.
You had a valid point. No matter what anyone says, that kid is still ugly.

Rach prefers to mix things up - change names, personas and even gender.
