PopSugar:Â Superman Returns Premier

David Hasselhoff was caught crying on camera during the American Idol finale at the end of May.Â Hasselhoff has endured the scoffing of many a media, but still keeps his head high & even wishes politicians would follow his lead & show some emotion as well.
The former Baywatch star was in the audience whenÂ theÂ American IdolÂ winner was announced, after the fierce Katharine McPhee v.s. Taylor Hicks showdown.Â The actor was overcome with emotion whenÂ Taylor Hicks took the Idol crown.Â Â Here he is now.Â
“Is it wrong for a grown man to cry? Maybe if we had more emotion in the White House we wouldn’t be in this mess we’re in.
“What moved me was the person sitting next to me is my best friend–he has brain cancer. It was his birthday and this was his present.
“When Taylor Hicks won I said, ‘Isn’t that cool? A guy gets the American Dream.’ Then I look over at my best friend who says, ‘Isn’t it great to be alive?’
“I find it kind of strange that you have to explain that in this world. What’s wrong with that? What’s wrong with having emotion?”
Despite having posed nude with Shar Pei puppies, which was so totally strange, Hasselhoff wins points with those comments.
O’Donnell is four months along & dueÂ in November which will make their three-year-old son Cooper a big brother.Â
The couple met in 1999 when O’Donnell was managing costume design for the play In Arabia We’d All Be Kings, which Hoffman was directing & they’ve been together ever since.Â And what an adorable couple they are.Â
Wow.Â I’m not sure I’m going to be able to keep up with all the stars that have gone belly up pregs!

Tori Spelling reconciled with her father, Aaron Spelling,Â exactly one week after the producer / director suffered from a stroke in his California home on Father’s Day of all days.Â Maybe Aaron saw one of those So NoTORIous shows & thought the show deserved a much different title.
On June 11 Tori visited her father at his mansion in Beverly Hills for the first time in nine months.Â The out-of-the-blue visit was so that Aaron could meet his new daughter’s husband Dean McDermott.Â Tori’s split with husband Charlie Shanian after just 15 months of marriage caused strain on her relations with her family.Â Ummm,Â I guess if your dad shills out millions for your wedding there’s like an expected amount of time you should be married before you can leave the guy for another dude.Â
Tori tells us her feelings about the two finally meeting, “I’m so over-the-moon that Dean and my dad finally met.”
Tori is still not speaking with her mother Candy, who was out of the house when the two came calling.
She adds, “It’s sad that my mother and I have the relationship we do, but you can’t pick your family.
“I lost the last nine months of time with my dad because of the circumstances with my mom.”
Tori says of the reunion with her father, “It was as if a day hadn’t gone by since we saw each other.”
A friend of Aniston’s has stepped forward & stated that the lack of Jennifer’s public commitment for supposed beau Vince Vaughn, comes from her father leaving at an early age, not from Brad Pitt’s desertion into the arms of Angelina Jolie.
Close pal Jim Cruise shares, “She is guarded with her emotions. I think her hesitation to commit comes from having had a father who left home when she was a very young girl, when he divorced her mother.
“On some level, I think it’s made her believe that men are prone to leave her, and she wants to leave them before they do it to her. I really believe that.
“I have a sense that Brad didn’t feel she was totally committed to him. Let’s put it this way: when that marriage ended, people in the inner circle were not as surprised as you might think.”
People in the inner circle were not as surprised as you might think?… Is that like the circle of trust?Â It’s too bad if this is really how Jen works, life is too short to not love madly & squeeze dailyÂ the one you’re with.

Last Friday 44-year-old actor & comedian Jim Carrey decided to surprise his girlfriend of eight months, Jenny McCarthy,Â with a sunset helicopter ride from Santa Monica Airport to Long Beach, CA.Â And it looks like she liked the idea.Â
The couple have tried to keep their budding relationship a secret but with this new tongue-in-cheek photo, I doubt they can keep it up for much longer.Â
Friends of theÂ couple couldn’tÂ be happier.Â Â A pal, Bruce Vilanch stated,Â â€œIt should be a federal holiday every time a comedian scores a gorgeous girl.â€
And another source added, â€œJim is an amazing catch for Jenny.â€
I have to say that I was a little grossed out by Jim Carrey’s tongue in action.Â Maybe that’s just me….

Zany Xenu Scientologist Tom Cruise has recently revealed that he wants toÂ keep Katie, I mean Kate, Holmes fat forever.Â The Hollywood star said he is planning onÂ having nine more kids with fiancee Holmes.Â Â
Cruise welcomed the arrival of his first biological daughter Suri (although there are no photos to confirm this phenomenon) in April & is super-excited to tellÂ us all what a happy Father’s Day he had with hisÂ new arrival & with adopted children Conner & Isabella, from hisÂ previous marriage to Nicole Kidman.Â Â
Cruise enlightened us by saying, “I always wanted to be a father. I remember my whole life, I wanted to be a father. So I’m hoping maybe I have 10 children.
“It was the best Father’s Day.”
I wonder what Katie, I mean Kate, has to say about all these imagined kids.Â Oh yeah,Â I guess she can’t do too much objecting with those restraining ropes & telepathic brain washing waves going on all the time…

Supermodel Heidi Klum is pregnant with her third child, the second with her current husband Seal.Â The couple have a 9-month-old son Henry & 2-year-old daughter Leni is from Klum’s previous relationship with race car driver Flavio Briatore.
The German-born model,33 & British-born singer, 43, have been married since 2005.Â Wow, it seems longer than that for some reason.Â
The couple live in New York & love giraffes.Â
So many people pregs, & if the rumors & pictures are true- Nicole Kidman might have another announcement besides the wedding.Â

Well, she did say that she planned on adopting soon…..
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper to be aired Tuesday, Angelina Jolie confesses that she & partner Brad Pitt will adopt another child in the near future.Â Â Just weeks after the birth of their first biological child together, theÂ famous couple are already looking into the future.Â
“Next we’ll adopt.Â We don’t know which–which country. But we’re looking at different countries. And we’re–I’m just–it’s gonna be the balance of what would be the best for Mad (Maddox) and for Z (Zahara) right now. It’s, you know, another boy, another girl, which country, which race would fit best with the kids.”
Jolie& Pitt’s 15-month-old adopted daughter Zahara is from Ethiopia &Â four-year-oldÂ son Maddox is from Cambodia, see tattoo for more details.Â
The couple’sÂ youngest child,Â Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, was born on May 27 in the African countryÂ Namibia.Â Jolie said her reason for giving birth in Namibia was that she loved Africa & wanted to take Zahara back to Africa.Â
“My other daughter’s African.Â And I wanted to take her back to Africa.”
Jolie said she was terrified during the birth of Shiloh, which was by Caesarean section due to the baby being in a breech position.
“And you know, because you’re there for the birth, which I wasn’t for my first two kids, you’re just suddenly terrified that they’re not gonna take a first breath,” she said.
“That was my whole focus. I just wanted to hear her cry. And I was sure everything would go right–at the last minute, I became the mother that was sure everything was gonna go wrong. And she’s healthy, and it was amazing.”
It’s a beautiful thing- being wealthy & having the ability to have your own colors of Benetton family, not to mention the time & means to help move the world into a better place.Â So, if you have a lot of spare cash around & want your own personal goodwill ambassador- just give me a buzz.Â

Dustin Diamond, known better as Screech from the TV show Saved by the Bell, has become another child star to inappropriately manage his monies.Â In an effort to save his home, Diamond is trying to raise $250,000 by selling t-shirts.
The 29-year-oldÂ comedian needs to sell 30,000 shirts at $15 – $20 a piece by the end ofÂ this monthÂ to prevent foreclosure on his home in Port Washington, Wisconsin, near Milwaukee.
The t-shirt features a photo of Diamond holding a sign thatÂ reads “Save My House” and the back states: “I paid $15.00 to save Screech’s house.”
DiamondÂ recently appearedÂ on Howard Stern’s satellite radio show to argue his case: “I’m doing great with my comedy, but this is definitely a low point.”
Dustin’s current career as a standup comic does not pay all the bills & the poor child star is left to scratch at the surface of the American public for any pittance they will give.Â
Diamond said his current career as a standup comic will not pay the bills.Â He claims that his earnings from the highly-rated TV series Saved By the Bell, which ran from 1989-1993, were spent by his parents & that he made some minor tax miscalculations.Â Diamond filed for bankruptcy in 2001.
While appearing on Howard Stern’s show, a hopeful Dustin stated, “If the public didn’t care, I as an entertainer wouldn’t have been a success.”
I’m left feeling that if there had been a solo Screech show on TV, it wouldn’t have lasted very long.Â So I’m not sure that the public really cared about Diamond’s entertainment success, or lack thereof.Â
To permanently clear the cult air, by the way, Dustin Diamond is in no way related to Mike D of the Beastie Boys.Â I bet it was Dustin who started that cult classic anyway.

Actress Katie, IÂ mean Kate, Holmes hasÂ astonished & worried her friends by sheddingÂ 28 pounds since giving birth to her daughter Suri on April 18.Â
Holmes has been sticking to her strict diet designed byÂ Buff Brides ownerÂ Sue Fleming as well asÂ her excessive exercise regimeÂ on top of trying to keep up withÂ baby Suri.Â Health experts have slammed the actress’ fanatical drive to slim down, saying that loosing weight should beÂ done more leisurely.
A “friend” tells the Daily Star, “Katie has embarked on a hardcore fitness regime and does 200 sit-ups a day, combined with two hours of cardio work before pilates.
“She has eaten healthily since giving birth but now her friends are worried she has dropped two dress sizes in too short a period of time.
“She is rushing around all of the time and is on hand for the baby 24 hours a day.
“Her weight is just rapidly falling off. It can’t be good and has got to be very stressful.”
I guess now that Katie, I mean Kate, is loaded she’s anxious to get the ball rolling with Tom Cruise & get her bod back before the wedding.Â But I can’t help but feel that there’s a Scientologist waving a punishing whip at Holmes until the daily physical rituals are done.

IDLYITW:Â Victoria Silvstedt gets lucky
Hilton encouraged the young pop star to try & cooperate with the paparazzi & not antagonize them (withÂ your crotch).Â The hotel heiress & general all-around, do-gooder claims she sympathizes with Spears’ plight with the media, but that the best way to handle the stick-to-you-like-glue photographers isÂ to not get a gun, but to smile & work with them.Â Â
Let’s let Paris explain, “(The paparazzi) annoy me, too.
“I can understand going to a press event or a premiere that’s fine, they’re there, but when they’re waiting outside your home every morning and following you around every single day it’s hard.
“I’d rather them just take pictures at events, not at my house.
“I think it’s better just to smile than when people give the middle finger or are rude to them, because that’s what they want you to do.
“They want to get a bad picture.”Â (Or if you’re like me, a picture of my firecrotch).
I believe these statements by heiress Paris are shaking the very roots of irony & I wouldn’t be surprised if that old, familiar tree came tumbling down after this tenacious effort by Hilton.

Pirates of the Caribbean:Â Dead Man’s Chest starring Johnny Depp & Keira Knightly was almost ruined by a series catastrophes on the Bahamas set.
Illnesses, freak weather & grump one-legged pirates almost ruined the movieÂ by forcing expensive delays & set alterations.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer says, “Every day something breaks down. We had a storm in the Caribbean. We built this tank and the sand came in and we had to re-dig it and put a retaining wall in.
“But things like that happen on a daily basis: a ship won’t be ready on time, an actor gets sick and he couldn’t fly from England. It’s just part of it being a big movie.”
Sounds like the work of bloody ghost pirates to me.
