This morning I learned that 53 year old grouch Simon Cowell, X Factor judge and former American Idol judge, is going to be a father.
And that’s not the best part.
The mother of his child is his friend Andrew Silverman’s estranged wife, Lauren Silverman.
Yes. You read correctly. Simon Cowell got his friend’s wife pregnant.
The two have been hanging out quite a bit over the past two years.
Real estate developer Andrew Silverman and 36 year old New York socialite Lauren Silverman “have been unhappy in their marriage for some time, and their divorce has been in the works for a while,” a source says. “As their marriage deteriorated, she and Simon became close.”
Lauren Silverman plans to leave her husband to be with Cowell. She’s ten weeks along in her pregnancy.
I’m not sure how to react to this news.
First there’s the fact that he’s having a child with a woman who is married to another man.
Another man who he happens to call his “mate.”
Isn’t this a violation of bro code? I mean, I know that Andrew and Lauren have been separated for a while but Jesus! That doesn’t give him permission to swoop in and impregnate the woman!
Then there’s the terrible reality that this is Simon Cowell we’re talking about here. The man we love to hate.
Back in 2009 he said, “God, no. I couldn’t have children. If I had them here drawing on the walls I’d go nuts. With kids, you’ve got a routine you can’t escape from. You’ve got to be up at a certain time. Got to listen. When all you want to do is sit in a corner thinking.”
His feelings on being a father changed last year, as he stated in an interview with AOL Music, “I do really, really like kids, because I can talk to them and listen to them. The problem has always been how much time you need to devote to bringing up kids. I’ve always dedicated all my life to work, and at 52, I’ve probably missed the opportunity.”
This year he claims, “If I knew I could be – how do I put this delicately – faithful, I would. I do like kids, I’m just not sure I’d be any good for the first six months. I don’t think I’d adopt because I’d rather have my own. I’d have to say I’d like a little girl.”
I wouldn’t exactly trust him to babysit a child, much less be the parent or guardian of one. He’s just not the type of guy you can picture cradling a child in his arms.
No matter how hard I try I just can’t do it!
I hope Simon Cowell treats the youngster better than he treats the contestants on The X Factor.
I really do.
Where do I even begin with this?
Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, Kansas has made plans to picket Taylor Swift’s concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on August 3rd, 2013.
Because according to a press release from the church, “@TaylorSwift13 works her ‘girl next door’ country-singer shtick, while hopping from one young man to the next and strutting across the world stage like a proud whore.”
In an interview with RadarOnline, Ben Phelps, the grandson of the group’s leader, stated, “This girl is a whore. Who else is gonna say that if it’s not the church of the Lord Jesus? She’s coming into our backyard. We’re gonna go preach to her.”
Oh, and that’s not the end of it. Apparently its Taylor’s job to preach to her followers.
Phelps goes on to say that Taylor Swift pretends to be a “good Christian, but she’s not.” According to him, Taylor should use her influence to “promote the standards of God,” to young girls instead of “whoredom, fornication … that filthy lifestyle.”
Ok now, they just went WAY too far.
As a Christian and a Taylor Swift fan, this really boils my blood.
Taylor Swift is the last celebrity I would even think of associating with whorish, filthy behavior.
That’s actually one of the reasons why I love her so much. Taylor Swift isn’t one to behave in such ways.
When was the last time you heard about Taylor Swift in the tabloids for reckless driving or crazy partying?
Since she doesn’t live “la vida loca”, the media needs to write something about Taylor Swift, so they just pick on her love life. Because that’s her only fault: the fact that she hasn’t been able to settle with someone for long term.
So what? That doesn’t make her a whore. As a matter of fact, if I’m not mistaken, the reason why she hasn’t been able to settle with one guy long term is because she won’t give it up!
Isn’t that the opposite of a whore? Last time I checked it was.
Back in January, when Taylor Swift and Harry Styles broke up, the tabloids speculated that it was because she’s a prude.
A source revealed that “Harry found Taylor a little sexually uninterested.”
The same source also stated, “What Taylor doesn’t get is that the guys keep dumping her because she’s being a prude.”
I honestly don’t understand how being a prude is synonymous to being a whore. I thought those two words were considered antonyms.
I think Taylor Swift is a wonderful human being. From the way she dresses to the way she carries herself, she is a wonderful role model. Her fans can learn a lot from her just by watching the way she lives her life.
Westboro needs to get their facts straight. Pull out a dictionary before you start going around calling people whores.
And while you’re at it Westboro, here’s a cherry to put on top of your little Sundae:
“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged.” – Matthew 7:1, NLT
Now eat it. And leave Taylor alone!!
Honestly, I’ve had it with this girl.
Every time Lindsay Lohan gets into trouble with the law, she always escapes punishment by the skin of her teeth. It just isn’t fair. Listen to me rant about this here.
Clearly Lohan is on a downward spiral. According to Celebuzz, she has spent 86% of her life since her 18th birthday on probation. That’s more than half of her adult life, and she’s only 26! From DUI’s to car crashes, Lindsay Lohan has found herself caught up in various misdemeanors, each time managing to obtain a light court sentence.
Let’s take a trip down memory lane, shall we?
Drinking and Driving Cases:
– In February 2005, a couple (Eddie Pamilton and Ilex Harris) filed a personal injury suit against Lohan for a car accident. She also crashed her car into a van later that year due to high levels of intoxication.
– In July 2007 Lohan was arrested for driving under the influence. She was charged with not one but seven misdemeanor counts from two DUI arrests. She faced a day in prison, rehab and three years of probation.
– Lohan was arrested in September 2012 for a suspected hit and run in while trying to park her Porsche Cayenne near the Dream Hotel. The man who claimed she hit his knee dropped the charges.
– In November 2012 Lohan slammed her Porsche into the back of an 18-wheeler while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway. She was charged for lying to the police about who was behind the wheel during the accident. Adding to this drama, her lawyer, Mark Heller, might lose his license for convincing Gavin Doyle to lie about being the driver during this incident.
– Lohan was also arrested for drug possession the day she was arrested for the DUI in July 2007.
– After violating her probation and missing a court hearing in July 2010, Lindsay Lohan was sentenced to 90 days in jail and 90 days in rehab. However, she was released from rehab after 21 days.
– Her probation was revoked in September 2010 after failing a court-ordered drug test. She was issued a bench warrant for arrest.
– After failing to complete community service in 2011, Lohan was sentenced to 30 days in community jail.
– Lohan was charged for stealing a necklace from a store in Venice, California back in February 2011. She was sentenced to 120 days in jail.
– In November 2012 she was arrested for assault at a Chelsea night-club.
If the average Joe had committed just one of the above felonies, he’d probably be in jail, with no hope of getting out anytime soon.
But not Lindsay. If Lady Justice is so blind, then why does she keep seeing her as a celebrity who should be given lenient court sentences?
It’s hard to even feel sorry for this girl, because she doesn’t seem to care about the fact that she’s been breaking the law constantly for the past six years. For her recent car crash misdemeanor, she arrived at her court hearing on Monday 45 minutes late because she blew off her flight from New York to Los Angeles to party with her friends.
If I were the judge, I’d send her AND her little party friends into the slammer. Why? Because clearly she doesn’t care about going to court to sort everything out and her friends don’t seem to be a good influence on her either!
To top it off, Lilo decides to go clubbing just hours after her court sentence of 90 days in residential treatment. She escapes jail yet again, so she goes to celebrate. Aren’t her celebrations the reason for half of her court sentences?
I don’t know if Lindsay will ever learn her lesson, but if the courts keep letting her off the hook with just a little relaxation time in the pool at whatever lavish rehab center, she will continue to find herself face to face with the judge. The court needs to stop being so lenient with Lilo. If the original decision was to send her to jail, then behind bars she should go. No pleas or bargains accepted.
