Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Welcome Second Child!

Congratulations are very much in order for Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher.

The beloved couple has welcomed its second child into the world!

Hooray! Huzzah! So totally awesome, right?

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher: Go Dodgers!

A representative for the actress and actor has confirmed that Kunis gave birth to a boy on November 30, although that is the only detail made known to the public at the moment.

We’ll let you know as soon as a name and/or any measurement intel is release.

The newborn joins two-year old sister Wyatt Isabelle as offspring of Kunis and Kutcher, who have done an admirable job of keeping their first child shielded from the spotlight.

Good luck finding photos of Wyatt anywhere online.

It’s almost as if Kunis and Kutcher care more about their little girl’s privacy and well-being than any attention or money they could earn off her existence.

Weird, right?

It’s safe to assume this will also be the case for the couple’s son.

But while we don’t know a great deal about their kids, we do know that Kunis and Kutcher positively adore parenthood.

“The one topic of conversation we had even prior to ever having kids was always, ‘How do you raise a child to not be an asshole?’ ” Kunis said in August, adding:

“It’s a matter of teaching them from a very early age that, you know, ‘Mommy and Daddy may have a dollar, but you’re poor.'”

There was also the time Kutcher appeared opposite Ellen DeGeneres and simply gushed over Kunis as a mother. And we mean GUSHED.

“She’s the greatest mom I can’t even… like I go to work every day and I come home and she’s like perfect. And it just seems like everything went amazing,” the actor said two years ago.

“And I know that something probably didn’t go amazing, but she never tells… it’s unbelievable. She’s incredible.”

Kutcher and Kunis have also drawn praise for not hiring a nanny to help child rear, a decision Kutcher explained in that same interview thusly:

“We just want to know our kid,. We want to be the people that know what to do when the baby’s crying to make the baby not cry anymore.

“We want to know, like when she makes a little face or something we want to be emotionally in touch with her and I think the only way to do that is by being the one who’s there.”

Such a simple way of putting it, and yet such a spot-on explanation.

Kunis and Kutcher got married in July of 2015, months after becoming first-time parents.

They confirmed that they were expecting again in June, with Kutcher spilling the gender beans during a chat this fall with Savanna Guthrie on NBC.

“I’m a little terrified to be honest,” Kutcher admitted to The Today Show host, smiling and confessing: “It’s intensely scary.”

Two kids instead of one? We’re sure it is. That’s, like, twice as many children as they had before. Talk about a challenge!

As for the name of their son?

Go ahead and take a guess.

As for photos of their son?

Do not go ahead and hold your breath awaiting some to be released. That would be a dangerous game to play.

George Lucas says he sold his ‘Star Wars’ characters to the Disney ‘white slavers’

wenn23282809

George Lucas sat down with Charlie Rose for a wide-ranging interview following the massive success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Lucas had very little (to nothing) to do with the success of SWTFA, considering he sold the property lock, stock and barrel to Disney for a relative bargain years ago. But Lucas still has thoughts, feelings and many, many words about it. In the midst of a long-winded answer about why he didn’t have a say in the characters these days, Lucas revealed:

“I sold them to the white slavers that takes these things, and…” Lucas says before laughing and cutting himself short. Lucas says he decided to go his own way and let J.J. Abrams create his own vision. “They wanted to do a retro movie. I don’t like that. Every movie, I work very hard to make them completely different, with different planets, with different spaceships, make it new.”

With massive pop culture footprints and billions of dollars earned, Star Wars and Indiana Jones make for an enviable legacy. But Lucas doesn’t want to be remembered for that; parenthood reigns supreme. “I gave up directing in order to become a dad for 15 years,” he says. “I just ran a company and was an innovator, but it was not doing what I really like to do, which is make movies.” Lucas made the decision after creating Return of the Jedi, and didn’t look back for a decade and a half. “It was one of those things where you don’t expect it to happen, but once I was a dad, it was like a bolt of lightning struck me.”

Though his name is inextricable from that galaxy far, far away, Lucas’ cinematic ambition lay outside of popcorn films. “I fell into popular movies by accident. I always disliked Hollywood theatrical movies. I didn’t want anything to do with them,” he tells Rose. Instead, Lucas says he wanted to make films like the Michigan documentarian Michael Moore. “My ambition then was to … cause trouble, because — again, I grew up in the ’60s, I’m a ’60s kind of guy, I always have been. I grew up in San Francisco Bay Area. That was my environment that I grew up in, and I was perfectly happy to do it.” He and longtime friend Francis Ford Coppola moved to San Francisco to create their own film company before both jumped into the Hollywood machine.

Josh Duggar once made a really awful incest joke on ’19 Kids & Counting’

JD3

In the wake of the ongoing horror show that is the Duggar family, many sites have been offering more in-depth glimpses of just what the Duggars are all about, their belief systems and what amounts to their cult’s teachings. The Duggars are home-schooled and extremely sheltered about the outside world, especially the women/girls. They’re also very, very, VERY far-right politically, especially about social issues like reproductive choice, LGBTQ issues and, you know, women wearing pants. If you’ve been paying attention to the Duggars even casually before this Josh Duggar story exploded last week, you were probably familiar with the broad strokes of what this cult is all about. But it’s worth discussing some of the stories that have come out in the wake of the scandal.

Jessa Duggar’s father-in-law Michael Seewald is a nutburger too. Michael Seewald penned a lengthy blog post about his daughter-in-law’s brother and the larger scandal – you can read it here. I’m not going to post anything from it because the guy thinks everything is the media’s fault and his arguments fall flat. He also gets some jabs in there about how Josh was raised well and we are all born sinful, and thank God Josh didn’t get his sex education from Planned Parenthood. Seriously. I will give Seewald credit for one thing: he acknowledged the victims of Josh’s crimes and how terrible is must have been for them, which is more than Josh did.

Josh Duggar once made an on-camera incest “joke.” The video resurfaced over the weekend and it’s pretty gross given what we know now.

The police report has been destroyed. The documents pertaining to the 2006 investigation into Josh Duggar’s criminal acts on little girls were destroyed over the weekend, probably. In Touch Weekly filed a FOIA request for the police report, which is how this whole scandal blew up last week. Well… alright. I guess the investigation wasn’t ongoing then.

Gawker did a lengthy exposé on Advanced Training Institute. Go here to read. The Duggars are closely connected to the Advanced Training Institute, which is “a Bible-based homeschooling program run by alleged cult figurehead Bill Gothard.” Gothard also has his own sex scandal, just FYI. The Duggars follow Gothard’s home-schooling program… religiously. The program includes advice for parents on how to deal with a situation involving an older child sexually abusing his younger siblings. That advice mainly boils down to blaming the victims for dressing provocatively and behaving immodestly. Like, it’s a six-year-old’s fault for getting molested because she had evil friends, she was wearing the wrong clothes, etc.

Quiverfull mom compares Josh’s actions to “playing doctor.” Go here to read this total nonsense. I used to play doctor with a neighbor boy. We were the same age (5 years old) and we would practice kissing in my closet. That is completely and utterly different than a 14 year old groping and molesting his 7-year-old sister. And then doing it again to three other sisters and one other little girl. That we know about.

Dan Savage is my spirit animal. As he does with most things, Dan Savage is giving some great analysis on why the Duggar situation is so awful, so hypocritical, and so disturbing. Go here to read.

Justin Timberlake ‘wants to raise Silas out of the spotlight’, in Montana

Justin Timberlake ‘wants to raise Silas out of the spotlight’, in Montana

wenn3874044

Justin Timberlake & Jessica Biel welcomed their son Silas at some point last week, I think. We never really got a confirmation on when she gave birth. Let’s just say it was last week. Biel went undercover for much of her pregnancy. That surprised me a bit, because I thought she would relish the chance to get pap’d with her bump on the reg. But it might have been by Justin’s command – I can’t imagine that Justin would have been happy if his baby-mama got more attention than he gets, for any reason. Which brings me to this Us Weekly story. Justin and Jessica apparently want to raise Silas away from Hollywood. Like, sources claim that Jessica and Justin are going to raise their son in Montana, where they have a home.

Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are in seventh heaven with their newborn baby boy. After welcoming son Silas Randall Timberlake earlier this month, the “Not a Bad Thing” singer and the Accidental Love actress are blissfully settling into new parenthood.

“Jessica sees herself as a mom of boys, so it worked out perfectly,” a source reveals in the new issue of Us Weekly, adding that first-time dad Timberlake, 34, is bursting at the seams with pride. “Justin is so excited, he doesn’t know what to do with himself!”

Home for the couple is their estate in the exclusive Yellowstone Club in Big Sky, Montana.

“Their house is all set up for the baby,” the insider tells Us. “They want to raise him out of the spotlight.”

A second source adds that “Jessica is happiest when she’s in the mountains.” However, Silas will spend at least part of his first months in his Hollywood Hills nursery, as Biel, 33, does business in California.

“Jess is opening her kids’ restaurant, Au Fudge, near L.A. in five months and has tons of meetings,” the pal tells Us.

Fortunately for the new parents, Timberlake’s mom, Lynn Harless, is eager to babysit her grandchild. “Lynn jokes she wants Silas all to herself!” the source says.

[From Us Weekly]

Raise your hand if you think Justin and Jessica are really going to be living in Montana for here on out. Yeah, that’s not happening. I’m not saying Jessica isn’t capable of going undercover (she’s proven time and again she’s capable of that), but I think they’ll definitely spend most of their time in LA and NYC. And that’s fine. That’s where both of them do most of their work. They just want to be seen as the kind of people raising their kids away from the spotlight (bullsh-t). Also: “Jessica sees herself as a mom of boys, so it worked out perfectly”???

Mayim Bialik rants about Frozen’s sexism & Bratz-like animation

Mayim Bialik

If you would have ever told me that I’d write about Mayim Bialik twice in one week, I would have laughed like Sheldon in Big Bang Theory. That’s not very attractive. This pattern of wall-to-wall (former) Blossom coverage is a disturbing trend. I’m probably mistaken in giving Mayim a gossip platform for her Kveller columns. I’m amused by her “get off my lawn” antics. This could change at any moment.

Mayim last shook things up by complaining about Ariana Grande’s billboards. Now she’s trolling her audience by slamming the top kiddie flick of 2013. Unlike most kids, Mayim’s sons do not like Frozen at all (or so she says). Mayim goes even farther by writing a column titled, “Why my sons and I hate Frozen.” Hate is a pretty strong word (especially for a harmless Disney flick). Mayim lists her three main issues with the film.

1. Plot/Feminism? The search for a man/love/Prince is still the reigning plot line in the movie, as it is with pretty much all movies for young people which are animated. The sister’s desire to marry this guy she just met, and the other sister getting mad at her–we still have a plot about the identification of a woman being based on her desire and search to meet a man.

My issue is that this is a movie geared to small children who I don’t think need to be focusing on that as the main driving plot of a movie. These characters are young; certainly not old enough in my socially conservative opinion to be searching for mates! I’ve had just enough already with this finding a man business in most every kids’ movie. Disney classics were all about this and look where it’s gotten us! Naked billboards of singers and women still not paid equal pay for equal work and ridiculous standards of beauty and body image and campaigns such as “Why I Don’t Need Feminism” and tons of other things proving we still have a ways to go.

2. Denoument/Male Bashing? The Prince/hero turns out to be a scheming villain. He pretended to love her and then he double crosses her and she gets the lesson taught to her not to trust those nasty scheming conniving men. Because you know, men can’t be trusted? Meh. I know, you’re confused by me. Yeah, take a number. First I claim to be a feminist and now I claim to be against male-bashing. That’s because feminism doesn’t equal male-bashing. And this movie isn’t empowering because it shows that a Prince is a jerk and should not have been trusted. That’s weird too. It’s just confusing.

3. Women as Dolls?: OK, my biggest problem with this movie was the way the female characters are drawn and animated. The male characters look like cartoon men. They have some exaggerated features, sure. But by and large, they look like they have the proportions of human beings. Not so with our lead ladies. They have ginormous eyes. Like really ridiculously big. Teeny-tiny ski slope noses. Exaggerated delicate ski sloppiness, actually. Barbie doll proportions of their bodies in general: tiny waists, ample busts, and huge heads. They look like dolls. They don’t look like the same species as the male characters even! What’s up with that?! My sons thought the females looked like BRATZ dolls, truth be told. I kind of agree.

[From Kveller]

Mayim worked in another jab at those dastardly PG-13 billboards. Nice cross promotion. You know what? Mayim scores a few points for never making me bleep f-bombs in her columns. She is a little worked up over a throwaway movie. People remember the music of Frozen more than the actual story (Tangled was a better movie).

Almost all Disney movies focus on the girl trying to meet Prince Charming. Even their recent “groundbreaking” movies do this. 2009′s The Princess and the Frog focused upon a very ambitious woman who settled for a womanizing playboy. My problem with Mayim isn’t that she’s upset about the sexism in princessy Disney films. It’s that she expects to point her grievances out and have the problem solved. She doesn’t offer solutions. Perhaps I’m expecting too much, but Mayim is smart enough to hold a PhD. She could toss out some constructive criticism during her rant.

I do agree with Mayim’s point that Frozen‘s female characters looked like dolls. The filmmakers took a lot of heat for this point. Head of animation, Lino DiSalvo said drawing women is hard because they’re “sensitive” and “you have to keep them pretty.” Disney does not want any Claire Danes-style crying in its animation.

Stacy Keibler gave birth to her first kid, daughter Ava Grace Pobre

FFN_Keibler_Stacy_TRICKYD_080114_51492947

Well, I’m glad that’s over. Stacy Keibler gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, on Wednesday. The announcement came on Friday. The next ladies to give birth are Eva Mendes and Mila Kunis, I believe. Anyway, Stacy wasn’t too annoying in the last month of her pregnancy, but around May and June, she was going overboard. She acted like she was a pregnancy expert and she was fat-shaming other pregnant women for daring to eat donuts during their pregnancies. She was exhausting. But she shut up for the most part after people were like, “Damn, Stacy. Ease up.” Anyway, she welcomed a healthy baby girl named Ava Grace.

Stacy Keibler’s bun in the oven is finally fully cooked! The actress and TV host welcomed her first child, a daughter, with husband Jared Pobre on Wednesday, Aug. 20, she announced on her website Friday.

“Jared and I have been blessed with the new love of our lives. Ava Grace was born at home on Wednesday,” she writes. “We’ve never experienced a level of joy and happiness like this before! Thank you so much for all of the special wishes and positive energy.”

The pregnancy was smooth sailing for Keibler, 34, who announced she and Pobre, a tech entrepreneur, were expecting a baby shortly after the couple tied the knot in March during a beach ceremony in Mexico.

“I haven’t had one day where I’ve been sick or tired,” Keibler told PEOPLE.

Instead of morning sickness and third trimester exhaustion, pending parenthood brought only good things for Keibler, who told Fit Pregnancy her marriage was already stronger.

“Our bond is so strong and special and getting pregnant has made it even more so. It’s been so much fun preparing to become new parents together,” the mom-to-be said in May.

[From People]

Thoughts on the name? Ava Grace is pretty, but at this point, it’s like naming your child Boring McAverage. My apologies to everyone who named their daughters Ava and/or Grace, but those are like two of the top baby names this year and they’ve been super-popular for years, along with Isabella, Madison, Madelyn and Lily. All of little Ava Grace’s schoolmates are going to be named Madison Grace and Lily Grace and Isabella Rose and Ava Madison. Surely there’s a happy-medium between choosing the most popular baby name OR choosing a name like Saint Lazslo?

Solange and Jay Z Fight In Elevator As Beyonce Looks On

Beyonce Solange elevator

Beyonce posted this photo with Solange, Luptia Nyong’o and Sarah Paulson at the MET Gala, which is the night the alleged fight took place. (instagram.com/beyonce)

-The Jay Z/Solange elevator fight video is burning up the interwebs right now. If you haven’t watched TMZ’s extended version, it’s worth it. Clearly, the security guard pressed the emergency stop button until he could get things under control (either that, or they’re on the longest elevator ride ever.) The prevailing theory is that Solange was either super drunk the night of the MET Gala (though the way she got her shit together as soon as she exited the elevator makes me wonder), or that she was defending Beyonce over something Jay did (which lends credence to some blind items and rumours). The most surprising thing is how Bey appears super stoic during the whole thing — and then turns on the smiles for the paparazzi immediately after. For someone who’s always controlled her image so fiercely, today must suck for her.

-Whatever happened, Solange reportedly deleted all of her pics of Beyonce from her Instagram.

-Speaking of blind items, Jennifer Esposito nearly confirmed some rumours about Bradley Cooper.

George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin had a star-studded engagement party in Malibu that included a serenade by Bono. So basically, they continue to win at life.

-Meanwhile, Stacy Keibler wants to remind you that she’s alive with a “hey! hey! look over here!” post.

-There’s lots of news coming out of the network upfronts this week. NBC confirmed that they’re bringing back Parenthood and Parks and Rec for shortened, final seasons. They also released trailers for some of their new shows. Marry Me (which feels like a sequel to Happy Endings) and Constantine may have promise. Katherine Heigl‘s State of Affairs looks predictably awful.

-Fox also announced some big moves, including pairing Gotham with Sleepy Hollow, reducing Glee’s final season, and promising that Graceland will have a different ending than Broadchurch.

-Speaking of Broadchurch, David Tennant might be the first guy to jump from an original series to the American remake and back.

Jane Krakowski is getting back in bed with Tina Fey.

Dan Harmon currently feels “eh” on whether Community should come back somewhere else. Netflix has already bowed out.

Scarlett Johansson and her fiancé attended an English wedding — and she didn’t bother to wear a fascinator. #missedopportunity.

Eminem‘s Mother’s Day message to his estranged mom was all kinds of sweet.

-I like this article about all the politics involved with appearing on the Cannes red carpet.

Jon Hamm hammed it up while taking selfies with his Don Draper wax figure.

Jennifer Lawrence almost fell down (again!) while walking the red carpet in a truly terrible dress. (Seriously, is that thing velvet?!)

-Meanwhile, Jennifer says boyfriend Nicholas Hoult is a great roommate.

-Whatever you do, don’t put Anna Wintour and Tim Gunn in a room together.

-Breathe easy, everyone. Chris Brown was sentenced to another 131 days in jail.

-How are they still adding cast members to the 50 Shades movie, which is well into production? Aaron Taylor-Johnson just joined the cast, which seems like a terrible career move.

Justin Timberlake appeared on last night’s episode of Oprah’s Master Class, where he dropped such bon mots as “When you look at me, you should understand that I am America.”

-Speaking of douche-tastic sound bites, Shia LaBeouf said: “At this point, I have enough money to live 25 lifetimes,” before telling a totally made up story about Jaden Smith. Go home, Shia. You’re drunk.

-THR has started posting Emmy roundtables. First up: showrunners Matthew Weiner, Vince Gilligan and Aaron Sorkin.

-Nice get: Octavia Spencer is joining the cast of Insurgent, the  sequel to Divergent.

Sherri Shepherd and her estranged husband are expecting a baby via surrogate … and he wants the kid.

-I’m guessing Beyonce was wishing we were still all talking about her weekend photo bomb right now.

Lea Michele posted a heartbreaking pic of Cory Monteith in honour of his birthday.

-I kind of wish Melissa McCarthy could break free from these types of roles, especially since her hubby wrote this movie.
