And now, for your viewing pleasure, here are two sets of celebrity parents that seem normal.
First up: Ashlee Simpson-Wentz and husband Pete Wentz, hanging by the water with little Bronx Mowgli. I’ve written before that Bronx is a rough name for a kid to have, but at least the Simpson-Wentzes seem to be normal parents. See photos at the Daily Mail.
Next we have Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. She has an incredible career in music and fashion, and he used to be in a band called Bush that was sort of popular. (Rossdale and Bush are putting out a new album this year called Everything Always Now; you can download the first single here. Maybe it’ll be as big as ‘Hollaback Girl’. Trivia tidbit: according to the web site for No Doubt, the band Gwen Stefani started her career in, they used to open for Bush.) The headline is sort of odd: Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale leave their sons at home to celebrate eighth wedding anniversary. Should they bring the kids along? Stefani is gorgeous, and 40, which isn’t old but that’s older than I thought she was. I guess I think of rock stars as being young, but ‘Tragic Kingdom‘ came out in 1995, which was (gulp) 15 years ago. Again, pics of the happy family are at the Daily Mail web site.
Celebrity parents that seem normal are not, of course, a common occurrence. Or maybe parenting skills have an inverse relationship with a desire to seek the spotlight. Tough to say. Somebody study that, will you please?

My headline here is intended to be sarcastic. Here is what I’m responding to:
Christina Aguilera fell in love with and actually married her fuzzy-face geeky manager Jordan Bratman. Why? Good question. Maybe she liked his managerial skills or the way he balanced her books?
(via The Envelope/LATimes.com, “Hollywood’s Luckiest Guys”)
Now. I ask you. If Ms. Aguilera had married a Black man, and the L.A. Times wrote “Maybe she likes fried chicken and watermelon”, would they have gotten away with it? Of course not. And yes, I realize that a chicken/watermelon comment is far more offensive than what the L.A. Times actually wrote. I think the “balanced her books” thing is supposed to mean that members of the tribe (aka Jews), of which Bratman is one, possess good accounting skills.
This is not to imply that Bratman isn’t lucky. He’s lucky as all hell. Aguilera is hot, successful, talented, and hot. I mean, look at this (videos kind of safe for work, but actually, probably not):
So yes. He’s a lucky guy. But what does his Hebrew heritage have to do with anything?
This could be interesting. If it’s true.
So. How much would you pay for a tape of Jon Gosselin and Deanna Hummel making the beast with two backs? (For those of you who didn’t waste their time getting a liberal arts degree, that means having sex.) Read more »
So Bridget Moynahan had what we think is the only sane response to Gisele Bundchen’s comment about Bridget’s baby. To paraphrase: Um, no. Read more »
