Brad Pitt Is Just A Dad Like Me

Brad Pitt may be a celebrity dad, but according to this article he has to do the morning shift. Which in his case includes getting six kids ready for school. Just like me.

Brad says this activity is “painful,” according to DigitalSpy. Getting six kids out the door in the morning isn’t totally fun? We can believe that.

Of course, Brad Pitt is also a mega-uber-superduper famous movie star worth a gazillion dollars. With a full head of hair. But otherwise we’re, like, totally the same guy.

Ben Affleck Looks Like a Regular Dad

We stumbled across a photo of Ben Affleck and his daughters Violet and Seraphina and decided to share it with you. Why? Because the man who played Daredevil looks like a regular dad in this shot.

You have to click through to X17 to see it, cuz we don’t want to pay for the rights to the photo, nor do we want to violate said rights. Who says this isn’t the DaddyTips Age of Respect For Intellectual Property?

Justin Combs, Son of Diddy, Gets Football Scholarship

P. Diddy’s son Justin Combs has received a football scholarship to UCLA, according to published reports.

I’m glad things are working out for Diddy, aka Sean Combs. Poor guy hasn’t had much success. Oh wait.

Anyway, good for Justin. The Winnipeg Free Press says that Diddy is proud of his kid (kiddy?), adding, “This is one of the proudest moments of my life. This is everything a father could want for his son, for him to excel at what he loves to do.”

Fair enough. Not having to pay for college is nice too.

Dad Gilbert Gottfried fired as voice of Aflac duck

Comedian and celebrity dad Gilbert Gottfried was fired as the voice of the Aflac duck, according to CNN. He made the following jokes via Twitter about Japan:

“Japan called me. They said ‘maybe those jokes are a hit in the U.S., but over here, they’re all sinking.'”

“I was talking to my Japanese real estate agent. I said ‘is there a school in this area.’ She said ‘not now, but just wait.'”

The tweets have since been deleted according to Yahoo! News.

I’m against people being fired for making jokes. Then again, there is such a thing as, you know, judgment. This is poor judgment on Gilbert’s part.

Gottfried has never been a comic who works clean, which is why I always found it amusing that he gets so much work in children’s entertainment like Aladdin and Cyberchase.

Here is Gilbert Gottfried at the Hugh Hefner roast, one of my favorite routines of his.

By the way, yes, Gilbert is indeed a father. I know this because I listen to Howard Stern. I guess he’ll have to look for another steady gig to support the family.

And OK, fine. We should call him Gilbert GotFired. Get it? Oy.
