Hello Magazine Is Nuts


How much would you pay to see pictures of Jude Law's new baby? I wouldn't pay anything, but then again I don't get into the whole paying for the first pictures of the baby but obviously someone does it or magazines wouldn't keep paying the money. One thing I think we can all agree on though is that if you were not looking at the picture right now there is no way you could give me the name of the woman who just had Jude's baby. Somehow, despite the fact she isn't a celebrity and spent all of one week with Jude she just received $300,000 from Hello Magazine for 14 pages of photos of her and the new baby. Really? So what the magazine is doing is rewarding her for getting pregnant by a celebrity. To give you an idea, $300K is more than Nicole Richie got this last time for the pictures of her and Toucan on People.

$300K is more than most celebrities receive for baby pictures. If Hello has a bunch of loose money kicking around and no place to spend it I am pretty sure we could find a lot more worthier places than Samantha Burke's wallet. Oh you can kid yourself and think she is going to save it for the baby, but we would just be lying to ourselves and that isn't a good way to start a new week.

Oh, and I love the quote from Samantha on the cover. "Jude hasn't met Sophia yet, but I'm sure he will be a wonderful father." I guess she is basing that on the 32 hours she spent with him in total almost a year ago of which 31 was spent in bed.

One other point, wasn't Jude Law supposedly whacked out with the flu or something when she seduced him under the guise of nursing him?

shazzzba said...

WELL NOW SHE'S BEGUN TO COLLECT....AS IF SHE HAD THE BABY FOR ANY OTHER REASON...

Babs said...

Oh, Enty! Toucan! You rock!

P.S. Off topic - watched Goonies over the weekend. That chubby little kid (Chunk?) sure was cute. Wonder what he's like as an adult? Rumor has it he's an entertainment lawyer...

@Merlin D.Bear: I remember reading something about him being sick, too. Funny how the peen still fucntions (leaving it) even when everything else just wants to sleep.

BTW, LOVED your story about Soupy and the K's!

Sporky said...

Jude, get a vasectomy already.

bflogurl said...

Babs..... veeeerrrryy interesting. Just looked at his Wiki ;o)

mikey said...

whole_lotta_luv - My DH will go so far as to insist that doing it cures him of whatever ails him. Ah, the power of the peen.

canadachick - I'll be peeking too! Can't help it. If I didn't know about it, I'd be fine. But now that I know about it I'll have to look.

I'm more interested in reading about the Original Fergie, the Duchess of York.

He'll be a good Daddy????
Someone is delusional! Just come out and say you did it for the check.

Krissie said...

I was shocked when I heard this nobody got that much money. But I'm glad to know Nicole Richie didn't get that much, because Nicole Richie doesn't deserve $$$ for her baby pictures either.

Also, Jude Law is not going to be a good father. He hasn't even met the kid. He doesn't care.

Judi said...

LOL, Babs! I'm with Sara - if I even read Hello.

That mother and child photo looks like the cover a sewing pattern catalogue from the late 70s or early 80s.

c17 said...

I don't get it.

WHY do these guys (Jude, Lil Wayne, Mel Gibson) not WRAP IT UP? They HAVE to know that any chick they knock up is gonna take them to the cleaners - why take the chance of losing half your fortune & part of any other possible $$ you bring in?

It's not fair that such stupid, morally bankrupt people have so much while so many honest & hard-working people have so little.

Yeah, life's not fair, but still. It just really grinds my gears.

Oh Jude, your parents must be so proud of you. Can't keep your zip up, can you.
