Julia Roberts Opens Up About Her Twins Names

In a pair of talk show appearances earlier this week, actress Julia Roberts offered insight into how she and husband Danny Moder arrived at the names Hazel Patricia and Phinnaeus ’Finn’ Walter for their 4-year-old twins.

“Hazel is an old-fashioned name, and she’s a strong, perfect Hazel,” Julia noted during a Tuesday appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday’s Live with Regis and Kelly she revealed: “[With Phinnaeus], my husband wanted to name him Finn, which I quite liked, but it seemed like a nickname…So I said we had to have a proper name, and then we can call him Finn.”

Hazel takes after Julia’s sister, with “big blue eyes and ‘real’ blonde hair,” Julia revealed.

Finn is described by his mom as ”perfect and lovely.”

Host David Letterman observed Julia’s ”little patch” of pink hair and inquired about its origins.

“Hazel thought I should,” a matter-of-fact Julia replied. “For someone who wants enthusiasm and support but perhaps less attention, I don’t think that having pink hair is the way to go…So I went for just a little bit.” While Hazel was pleased with the end result, her brother was even more enthusiastic!

Reveals Julia, “Finn is crazy about it. He’ll stop people in the market. ‘Sir, sir. Look at my mommy’s hair!’”

Although she feels her heart has been “cracked right open” since welcoming the twins and their 21-month-old brother Henry Daniel, Julia has no plans to expand her brood. “No, I think I’m good,” she said.

Julia’s new film Duplicity is in theaters now.

Friends & Family Attend Wake For Natasha Richardson


Vanessa Redgrave sang a lullaby to her dying daughter in the final moments of her life, London's Daily Telegraph reported Friday.

Shortly before Natasha Richardson's family made the decision to turn off the life-support machine, Redgrave, 72, sang "Edelweiss" from The Sound Of Music at New York's Lenox Hill hospital, where Richardson, 45, died Wednesday of internal bleeding following a ski accident.

It reportedly is the same song she performed for her daughter's first marriage to Robert Fox in 1990. Lyrics include "Blossom of snow, may you bloom and grow/Bloom and grow forever."

On Friday, Richardson's husband Liam Neeson and family gathered at the American Irish Historical Society in NYC for the late actress' wake. A hearse carrying the polished wooden casket bearing Richardson's body was transported from the Greenwich Village Funeral Home earlier in the day.

Richardson's two sons, Micheal, 13, and Daniel, 12, joined Neeson and the actress' mother, Redgrave, and sister, Joely Richardson, at the private viewing. ABC newswoman Diane Sawyer, Mike Nichols, Matthew Modine, Ralph Fiennes and Uma Thurman were also present.

After today's wake, Richardson will be buried Sunday during a private funeral service in Millbrook, N.Y., where she belonged to St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, ABC News reports.

The private viewing followed Thursday night's tribute when Broadway theaters dimmed their lights for a minute to mark her death. Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick were among the stars who paid their respects.

Quoting the Cole Porter song "Everytime We Say Goodbye," Parker told Us: "It's as if Porter were writing the sentiments of everyone who was privileged enough to know, work with or love the late great Ms. Richardson."

She then e-mailed the lyrics to the song:
"Every time we say goodbye, I die a little.Every time we say goodbye, I wonder why a little.Why the gods above me, who must be in the know,think so little of me they allow you to go.When you're near there's such an air of spring about it.I can hear a lark somewhere begin to sing about it.There's no love song finer but how strange the change from major to minor,Every time we say goodbye, every single time we say goodbye."

Nicole Richie's 'House Of Harlow' Is Sold Out!

Nicole Richie's first collection for her jewelry line House of Harlow 1960 was such a success that the line sold out of inventory through pre-order on shopkitson.com before Richie could get her line in stores.

“I’m so surprised and so blessed,” Richie said at a March 7th signing at Kitson. “This has been a dream of mine for so long.”

Nicole donned over 20 pieces of the line (which she co-designed with jeweler Pascal Mouawad) at the event, in keeping with her accessory philosophy that more is more. “I stack everything,” she says. “I layer my jewelry.”

She admits her zeal may be related to eschewing jewelry around daughter Harlow, 1. “Everything just goes in her mouth,” Richie laughs. “In the daytime, heels and jewels are out!”

Her favorite item in the line? The starburst necklace. “In the back, there’s a little star. I thought it was a nice touch to have that instead of the typical clasp, and I wanted to give people the option to have a bigger piece and a smaller piece in the necklace.”

So, what’s next? “I’m focusing on my brand right now. There will be a maternity line, a clothing line, shoes, belts, everything!”

And, of course, a sibling for baby Harlow. “I feel great, I’m working a lot, I have great friends, and a great family,” Richie says. “All of my dreams are coming true.”

Shop House of Harlow 1960, with prices starting at $12!, at shopkitson.com.

Charlie Sheen's Newborn Twins Manage To Fool Their Dad!


"I can't tell [who's who]!" Sheen, 43, tells Entertainment Tonight from the set of Two and a Half Men just days after wife Brooke Mueller Sheen, 31, delivered twin sons. "They're not identical, but at this stage, they're similar enough."

Their names, on the other hand, aren't giving him any trouble. Max and Bob "are very short and simple – easy to spell and remember," Sheen says. "Bob is the same frontward and backward. I'm a fan of a short and simple name. Max was literally Nick until about a minute before he came out."

Motherhood Is Far Away For Miley Cyrus


The 16-year-old singer, who is dating 20-year-old model Justin Gaston, says that she hopes not to follow in her mother’s footsteps when it comes to starting a family at a young age.

“My mom got married when she was really young and that was great for her, but for me I don’t think so,” Miley says.

As for babies, the Disney star adds that she’s in no rush to pack on the pregnancy pounds:
“I don’t want to have kids and lose my figure really young. I don’t want to blow up to the size of a house. Definitely not right now. I’m only 16. Maybe 20 years down the road.”

Autopsy Rules Natasha Richardson Died From Blunt Impact To Head Which Caused Her Brain To Bleed

Natasha Richardson died from a blunt impact to the head according to a spokesperson for the New York City medical examiner's office.

Her death was ruled an accident Thursday after an autopsy was performed. The blunt impact caused internal brain bleeding, which is what killed her, the M.E.'s office reports, but it is still unknown exactly how she injured her head.

Richardson's nightmare began Monday afternoon during a private ski lesson on a beginner hill (Photos of the hill posted below) at Mont Tremblant in Quebec.

Mont Tremblant rep, Catherine Lacasse, says Richardson fell and tumbled during her private ski lesson. She fell in the middle of the ski run and did not appear to hit any object aside from the snow on the ground. Lacasse also told said that 45-year-old Richardson initially appeared fine and was "lucid, talking, even making jokes."

Two ski patrol officers and her ski instructor tended to her at the scene where she initially declined to go to the hospital, said the rep. Instead, the trio accompanied her back to her hotel room.

About an hour later, "she started to suffer headaches and the instructor said, 'Okay, you better go to the hospital,' and she agreed," said Lacasse.

An ambulance took her to a nearby hospital, Centre Hospitalier Laurentien, and later in the day she was taken to Sacre Coeur Hospital in Montreal, where was treated in the intensive care unit.

On Tuesday she was flown back to New York City where her family held vigil at Lenox Hill Hospital. The family announced her death Wednesday evening.

The Greenwich Village Funeral Home is handling her arrangements.

Alison Sweeney Shares Photo Of Daughter Megan Hope

Alison Sweeney, host of NBC's The Biggest Loser, 31, gave birth to Megan Hope Sanov after having a labor induced delivery.

At home in Los Angeles, little Megan already has her dad, a California Highway Patrolman, "wrapped around her little finger," Sweeney says. Not to mention her big brother, Ben, 4: "He pets her on the head and calls her cutie-pie!"

Megan's nursery is decked out in pink and brown tones with sage green accents, a feminine chandelier, and traditional Bellini furniture.

Tradition, too, dictated Megan's name: "There have been a lot of quirky, unusual celebrity baby names. But we wanted people to be able to spell it. We wanted it to be more timeless," says Sweeney.

There's nothing old-fashioned about Sweeney's post-baby workout routine, however. The star who, was back on the The Biggest Loser set just eight days after the birth – and returned to her role as Sami Brady on soap opera Days of Our Lives just six days after that – has been turning to her Nintendo Wii for help.

Sweeney is the proud owner of a new fitness program, called EA Active, and has been following its lead to help bust her baby weight. "When do I have time to go to the gym?," asks Sweeney. "It really is like a personal trainer in a box. It's perfect. I recommend it to all mothers!"

Natasha Richardson's Tragic Death Sends Shockwaves Through Hollywood


Hours after his wife Natasha Richardson passed away from complications caused by a skiing injury, Liam Neeson was spotted returning to his Manhattan residence along with mother-in-law Vanessa Redgrave.

The actor looked understandably saddened as he gave a quick wave to the paparazzi before heading inside for the night.

Richardson’s tragic death is sending shockwaves through Hollywood.
Her “The Parent Trap” costar Lindsay Lohan told press, "She was a wonderful woman and actress and treated me like I was her own. I didn't see much of her over the years, but I will miss her. My heart goes out to her family. This is a tragic loss."

Friend Blythe Danner commented, "I can't talk because I started crying. I'm heartbroken. She was so kind to us when Bruce [Paltrow, Danner's late husband] was ill. She's so generous. I don't think that I can handle it."
Mia Farrow:"Natasha is irreplaceable. I cannot think of anyone kinder, more generous, thoughtful, smarter or more fun. She is the godmother of two of my children. The Neesons and Vanessa [Redgrave, Richardson's mother] have always made me feel a part of their wonderful family. My thoughts and prayers are with them."

Top Chef's Padma Lakshmi (Richardson was a guest judge):"She was great. She was lovely. She was just like one of the gang. She was very, very articulate. She was very, very opinionated. She was very compassionate. She had a very sophisticated palate."

Dame Judi Dench:"She had an incredibly luminous quality, that you seldom see, and a great sense of humor. I thought she was a really great actress."

Demi Moore (via Twitter):"I am sending out prayers for Natasha Richardson and her family. A real reminder of how precious life is and how quickly it can be gone."

Martha Stewart (via Twitter):"Just heard the tragic news about poor Natasha Richardson. Her family must be devastated. My sincerest condolences to all."

Regis and Joy Philbin:"They live around the corner from us. It's such a surprise. She's a lovely woman. Liam and those two little boys are great. They're a lovely family."

Jane Fonda:"I first met her on the set of Julia [the 1977 drama, starring Richardson's mother, Vanessa Redgrave]. She was a little girl but already beautiful and graceful. It didn't surprise me that she became such a talented actor. I wanted to go to the Lenox Hill Hospital where I was told she had been taken to see if there was anything I could do for Vanessa [Redgrave], any comfort I could bring, but today was a two-show day and as the curtain went up tonight, I heard the tragic news. It is hard to even imagine what it must be like for her family. My heart is heavy."

Joan Rivers:"We spent one amazing day on a boat with my whole family and she and Liam and the boys. They were such a family. I mean just shouldn't have happened. And they made such a good-looking couple too. He doted on what she said, she doted on -- it was just perfect."

Director Atom Egoyan:"I had the opportunity to meet Natasha at the opening of the play I did withLiam [Neeson, Richardson's husband] in New York last year. Her intense pride and affection for her husband was so clear, as was his passion and love for her. I'm so devastated for Liam's loss."

Director Sam Mendes:"Natasha combined the best of Redgrave and Richardson: the enormous depth and emotional force of a great actor on the one hand, and the intelligence and objectivity of a great director on the other. She was one of a kind, a magnificent actress. She was also an amazing mother, a loyal friend, and the greatest and most generous host you could ever hope to meet. It defies belief that this gifted, brave, tenacious, wonderful woman is gone."

Michelle Williams & Matilda Ledger Enjoy The Day In Brooklyn


Michelle Williams and her daughter Matilda Ledger were enjoying the warmer NYC weather yesterday as they took a walk in Brooklyn with a friend.

As for the constant attention she’s been receiving from the paparazzi, Michelle recently told press she’d even consider relocating to another country in order to get away from the paparazzi.

“I don’t want to make my life any more complicated. I don’t want any more paparazzi outside my door. I want it to get better as my daughter grows up, not worse. If it makes a difference, if doing smaller movies means less of that stuff, then I’ll adjust my life so that we can still have a life in the city and not totally disappear. If not, I think they have laws in France- I’ll go there.”

Is Katie Holmes Pregnant?

From the time she popped out Suri, tabloids have been speculating that Katie Holmes was pregnant again. Now OK! claims she really is – and since the tot is almost three years old, it seems a more reasonable possibility. OK! says they have a confirmation from a family friend, and coupled with Katie’s slightly fuller figure and “undeniable” glow, that’s practically a positive pregnancy test in hand.

Her face is fuller and she radiates an undeniable glow. Now, after weeks of speculation, sources tell OK! that Katie Holmes is expecting baby #2 with hubby Tom Cruise!

“They are deliriously happy that Suri will be a big sister,” one family friend says. Adds another source, “They’ve always planned on expanding their family. They’re over the moon.”

The new addition, however, remains a secret. Katie, 30, and Tom, 46, have shared the news with only a small group of friends and family, preferring to wait until she’s at least three months along before going public.

But many observers have already noticed some signals, in particular when the Cruises appeared at the March 11 Tokyo premiere of Tom’s movie Valkyrie. Katie looked stunning in a Jason Wu dress and billowing hair extensions.

Hmmm…. I’m not sure that billowing hair extensions are a traditional sign of motherhood. Maybe in Hollywood. This still sounds like it’s mostly speculation to me. A family friend could be anyone. I wonder what kind of proof OK requires from their sources. Still, it would be a good time for Tom and Katie to have another baby. Their kids would have a little over a three-and-a-half year age difference, which is good.

Eddie Cibrian Denies Affair With LeAnn Rimes

Earlier today we showed you this weeks Us Weekly cover where they reported that LeAnn Rimes was having a secret affair with her "Northern Lights" costar Eddie Cibrian. Well, Eddie is now dismissing rumors.

Eddie has been leaning on friends for support all morning after the story broke, according to a close friend. Eddie is denying the rumors, telling him "LeAnn and I are friends, we went to dinner, that's it. The most ridiculous thing is that people believe I would do something like this period ... much less do it in a public place. The false accusations are obviously causing a rift at home, but me and my family will get through this together."

We wish Eddie and wife, model Brandi Glanville and their children all the best in dealing with this little set back.

The timing on this story just seemed a little odd to both us and the actor in the eye of the storm. "LeAnn and I just shot a movie together so it is a bit bizarre that the timing on this is so close," he's been telling friends.

LeAnn (along with the Twitter comment released from husband Dean) has also released a statement on her website saying "I would like to assure all of you that this is a place for you to hear things directly from me and as you all know, not everything in our lives is always black and white."

Natasha Richardson Pronounced Dead Family Releases Statement

The British actress suffered her fatal injury while skiing on this slope at Mont Tremblant in Quebec, which attracts wealthy families and the famous.
Liam Neeson and his family have just released the following statement about the passing of Natasha Richardson:

"Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."

The statement was issued by Neeson's publicist Alan Nierob in Los Angeles.
The actress suffered what was described as 'irreversible and profound brain injuries'.
One family member who saw Natasha in hospital yesterday came out and said: 'I saw her, she's gone.' Neeson said that he wanted all those who knew and loved her to come and 'say goodbye'.

The 45-year-old actress was flown to a hospital in New York after a fall in the Canadian resort of Mont Tremblant on Monday.

Her family, including mother Vanessa Redgrave and husband Neeson, had gathered at her bedside in the Lenox Hill Hospital, where she was kept on a life support machine.

Miss Richardson had been taking a private ski lesson at the resort when she fell on a 'green' slope, suitable for beginners. She was at the bottom of the run in an area known as The Flats during the afternoon lesson, when she tumbled down the hill.

Initially Miss Richardson, who was not wearing a helmet, appeared unhurt. She got up laughing and refused to see a doctor, witnesses said, even signing a medical form saying she did not need help. But an hour after returning to her hotel room, the Tony award-winning actress began to experience severe headaches and was taken to hospital.

She received emergency treatment at the Centre Hospitalier Laurentien, nearby, and was then transferred to Montreal's Sacre Coeur Hospital. Neeson immediately flew from the set of his latest film, Chloe, in Toronto, to be near her, when he heard about the accident. The actor, 56, was seen escorting his wife as she was taken by ambulance from hospital in Montreal to the airport.

Her family rushed to be at her bedside yesterday as she lay unconscious in intensive care.

Her mother arrived with her head bowed and covered by a scarf, followed by daughter Joely Richardson and granddaughter Daisy, along with actress aunt Lynn Redgrave and Natasha's sons Michael, 13 and Daniel, 12.


Vanessa Redgrave, the 72-year-old Oscar-winning actress, was already in Manhattan, comforting the couple's sons, who had been in Canada on the holiday, but were then flown home.
A friend said: 'Vanessa's distraught as you would imagine but she's being strong for the boys.'

Michael J. Fox Opens Up About His Battle With Parkinson's & Family


Since being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease in 1991, at times Michael J. Fox finds himself considering the toll his health has taken on his family. However, all it takes is an outsider to ask how he is coping with his life to put things back into perspective for the actor.

“I think, cope?! It’s really hard to even think that way,” he admits in April’s issue of Good Housekeeping. “Sometimes I’ll stop and think, ‘Am I selling short the experience my family is having?’ But then I’ll look back at it and say no — they’re having fun.”

Melting away his initial worries is the fact that, according to Michael, his kids – Sam Michael, 19, twins Aquinnah Kathleen and Schuyler Frances, 14 and Esmé Annabelle, 7 — have willingly stepped up to the plate when needed most. “And you know, with Parkinson’s, my kids just make that transition,” he explains. “If I’m reaching for something, they’ll just do it and carry on.”

While there is no argument that the family has faced its share of hard times, the father of four says his kids have managed to come away from the experience with a sense of maturity and wisdom, which, most likely, would never have been addressed. “[My kids have learned] empathy, resilience, and also sorting out what’s important from what’s not — things like vanity,” he shares.

That being said, Michael believes the teaching has become a two-way street. Realizing that there is “not one moment that is frozen in time,” the 47-year-old’s outlook on life has him savoring each second with his kids. According to Michael, the same goes for his illness.

“I’m not feeling particularly steady right now, but this is not going to last for more than a couple of minutes,” he explains. “Same with raising kids. There are no moments you have frozen in amber. It’s moving, it’s changing, so appreciate what’s good about right now and be ready for what’s next.” His parenting advice? Choose your battles carefully!

“I remember my son wanted to go to bed with his cowboy boots on, and we had this fight for like an hour. Then I realized that the only good reason I had for him not to do it is because I didn’t want him to. There was really no other reason. And finally I said, ‘Okay, fine.’ It was a great victory for me because I realized it doesn’t really matter.”

Denise Richards Is Happy For Charlie & Brooke

It looks like Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen have finally made peace.

When Richards first filed for divorce back in 2006, it became a very public and hateful situation, with the two continuously bashing each other.

Since the divorce, Sheen has moved on to another marriage with Brooke Mueller, who gave birth to twin boys Max and Bob March 14.

Of the birth, Charlie’s “Dancing with the Stars” ex says, "I'm so happy for them. The girls [her two daughters with Sheen] are really excited that they're big sisters now. They've already made them a couple pictures and they can't wait to see them."

Madonna Ready To Adopt Again?

Could Madonna's 3-year-old son David Banda be getting a Malawian sibling?

"It's something I have been considering," Madonna said in an interview with the country's Nation newspaper. "But [I] would only do if I had the support of the Malawian people and the government."

The singer's rep Liz Rosenberg echoes her sentiment, "Madonna has stated many times that she'd love to adopt again."

In the interview, Madonna responded to questions from readers. She addressed speculation about her future adoption plans head-on, saying, "Many people – especially our Malawian friends – say that David should have a Malawian brother or sister."

Describing the initial difficulties she faced with the 2006 adoption as a "big struggle," Madonna said the public scrutiny was like "my own kind of birthing pain with dealing with the press on my front doorstep, accusing me of kidnapping, or whatever you want to call it."

Still, she said her decision to adopt set an important precedent. "This adoption essentially was the beginning of the creation of adoption laws in Malawi," she said. "I am the template or the role model, so to speak, for future adoptions."

Importantly, Madonna says she tries to keep David rooted in his culture. "It is a big priority for me to educate my son about the world, but always to stay connected to his Malawian culture," she said. "He has a big map of Africa in his room with lots of arrows pointing to Malawi."

And, she added, despite her recent divorce from Guy Ritchie, David is encouraged to maintain a close relationship with his adoptive father. "Everything between us is very amicable," she said. "We both agree that our children should always feel a deep connection with both their parents."

Gwen Stefani Stole Son Zuma's "Quirky Name"

Gwen Stefani has revealed how she came up with her son Zuma’s unusual name – she stole it!

Gwen says that she was talking baby names with her No Doubt band mate Tom Dumont’s wife Mieke, who was also pregnant at the time. When the name Zuma came up – as in Zuma Beach, California – Gwen, who was looking for a “quirky” name for her second son, pounced on it.

“I kind of stole it from [Tom],” she says. “I didn’t steal it, I mean his wife didn’t want it. It was just one of those things that just happened. I just wanted Zuma to have a little bit of a quirky name.”

Tom and Mieke ended up settling on Rio Atticus for their son, born last June.

Gwen is gearing up to hit the road with No Doubt this summer, and will be bringing sons Kingston, 2 1/2, and Zuma, 6 months, along.

“Some days I miss the old selfish touring days where you just sleep all day,” she admits. “But those days are gone. I just need to accept it!”

Jade Goody's Son Picks A Flower For His Dying Mommy



It was a rare moment in the tragic story of Jade Goody. As she clung to her last few hours of life, her two young boys ran around the garden of her Essex home in the sunshine.

Face-painted Freddie, 5, stopped to pick a daffodil for his mother, and he played football with brother Bobby, 4, and their stepfather Jack Tweed.
The cancer-stricken reality TV star has prepared the boys for their fate, telling them she will be 'a star in the sky' looking down on them. She said: 'Mummy's going to heaven soon. Close your eyes and you can talk to her.'
Jade's publicist Max Clifford said: 'The boys went to see her and she was aware of them for a brief moment or two. She saw them and she smiled.'

'At the moment she's heavily sedated and most of the day she is deep in sleep. She's getting weaker, she's fading, but she's got a big heart which is probably why she's still alive.
