May 1st 2011 3:50PM I think that must be the way it's done in the UK because I've seen it written that way more than once. For example, the mother of Andrew Firestone (ex-Bachelor) is from the UK and her name is Catherine "Kate."
Apr 29th 2011 12:38PM Diana's attendants (of all ages) all wore ivory as well. I remember how adorable those little girls were.
Pippa is really pretty. Nice dress.
Apr 13th 2011 12:52AM Will and Kate seem genuinely happy together. Diana would be so proud of her boys. I just hope the press leaves Kate alone enough so that she'll be able to enjoy her new life.
Feb 22nd 2011 7:21PM Obviously, this mom doesn't understand the concept of positive reinforcement! Yes, it's important to teach our children that education is vital but there's a right way and a wrong way to get that point across.
From the time my girls were small, I made it known to them that they would go to college, that they would succeed and achieve whatever they wanted and that their father and I had certain expectations for their futures. I suppose we've been fortunate because all three have been diligent with homework and making good grades. The older two are in college (senior, sophomore) and the youngest is my little sixth-grade genius, but we can't take all the credit for that. She really is scary smart.
Bottom line: teach them the value of education, yes. Talk about it often. Humiliating them will only breed resentment and won't accomplish much of anything, in my opinion. Will this child ever learn to trust his mother again? Is he going to learn to humiliate HIS children? There are no good fruits here.
Sep 28th 2010 6:51PM And btw, it's been my understanding that Grayson's biological father had retained legal counsel from the very beginning. If it had been in his best interest to contact the Vaughns, I'm sure his lawyers would have told him to do so. I have to wonder if this is going to have any bearing on the case at all. It seems more of a way for the Vaughns to garner sympathy by going public with this (by saying the biological father didn't care enough).
Sep 28th 2010 6:45PM Bottom line: I could NEVER in good conscience keep a child when I KNEW one of his parents wanted him! It just wouldn't feel right. But to keep him and drag this out and make the CHILD suffer in the end is just cruel, imo. Maybe the biological father isn't perfect but he did the right thing -- in fact the ONLY thing he could do -- as soon as this child was born. For the Vaughns to make a moral judgment and decide that they were better for Grayson is going to backfire and hurt Grayson most of all.
Re: the no contact by Grayson's father, look at it this way. If the Vaughns kept his child knowing it was his and that he wanted his son, why should he try to deal or compromise with them? What would make him think they'd do the honorable thing by passing on birthday cards or Christmas gifts or even just letting him have a supervised visit a time or two?
Sep 26th 2010 1:09PM People can do whatever they want for all I care but still, I feel sorry for these people. I don't see how true intimacy can be established with four (soon to be five) people. I enjoy knowing that my husband is mine and I am his. Then again, I'm just an old-fashioned romantic.
May 26th 2010 8:28PM I don't buy this rumor for a minute. Adam tweeted several days ago that he wouldn't be there. He doesn't strike me as a careless and stupid person to risk the chance of performing his new single by being a diva. And as far as conforming to Idol standards goes, he performed the same single last week on Ellen and Leno and "suited" those shows' standards just fine. This is just a lame attempt to discredit someone.
May 13th 2010 9:40PM I remember when my daughter cheered several years ago at the age of 8 and I thought some of the dance routines were kind of risque, but that was nothing compared to this! I think the dancing was sexy enough but combined with the outfits, it was far too sexual for children. True, swimsuits cover just as much, but it's not the amount of fabric, it's how it was used. These little girls can obviously dance and the choreographer is talented as well. The truth is that they would have slayed any challenging routine. It didn't need to be sexual to entertain. I think what bothers me the most is that while these girls are having fun in their child-like innocence, some pervert may watch this and see it completely differently.
Apr 22nd 2010 1:06PM Have those execs even looked at what those ladies are wearing on DWTS? Unbelievable!
