The truth comes out about Sharon Stone! September 30, 2008

TMZ.com is reporting that the judge in Sharon Stone’s custody case has released the “Tentative Statement of Decision”, and it basically says that Sharon Stone is a terrible mother!  Check it out:

“Among many things, the judge says, “Mother appears to overreact to many medical issues involving Roan.” In one case, the judge describes Stone believing Roan had a spinal condition, but “there was no evidence to support this allegation.”

And then the court says, “Another example of an overreaction is that Mother suggested that Roan should have Botox injections in his feet to resolve a problem he had with foot odor. As Father appropriately noted, the simple and common sense approach of making sure Roan wore socks with his shoes and used foot deodorant corrected the odor problem without the need for any invasive procedure on this young child.”

The judge differentiated very distinctly the difference between Bronstein and Stone, saying, “Father has championed for Roan’s well-being out of, what appears to this Court, nothing less than the unconditional love for his son. Unfortunately, and for unexplained reasons, it appears that Mother did not involve herself to the extent she could or should have in this process … Mother has attempted to put up roadblocks to Roan’s getting help, or has decided against participating in his care.”

The judge goes on: “Unfortunately, the problem caused by Mother’s overreactions is painfully real for this child.”

There are many other specifics that we won’t publish. 

The judge says at one point, responding to Stone’s argument that she put her career on hold for Roan, “If Mother has, in fact, limited her career to make herself available for Roan, she has done little to make this evident to Roan, his school or this Court.””

Yikes.

Yikes.

WHAT?  She kind of seems like she’d be crazy in ‘real life though’, doesn’t she?  She’s a bit strange and plastic and a total, unabashed cougar – but in a fatal attraction kind of way.  Sometimes I’m think to myself, “Damn, Sharon – you look good for 50!”.  But then it comes out that she tried to botox her child’s feet. Say what?  

WHO DOES THAT?

Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson – bikini mamas on vacation.

Lindsay Lohan and Samantha Ronson, who recently came out as a lesbian couple to DJ Ted Stryker, on Loveline, were spotted on vacation in Mexico this week.  Even though Manthy is clearly the butch of the relationship, she’s pictured wearing a blue and pink bikini.  It sort of makes her a little more vulnerable and likable, I think.

Samantha sort of has a weird body, but Lindsay’s body is refreshingly AWESOME.  She’s totally off the wagon, but it sort of seems to agree with her, don’t you think?

Awww...

Awww...

I love that there are all these hot superstar lesbians these days.  As much as people new to to the homosexual thing tend to be more comfortable with the idea of girl on girl on a personal level, gay men were more culturally excepted in major media.  Now we have Ellen, Portia, Lindsay, Samantha, Melissa, Michele, and – unfortunately – Rosie.  Regardless, it’s awesome!

Philip Glass is writing an opera about Walt Disney’s final months. What?

I just read that the Met has commissioned Philip Glass to write an opera about the final months of Walt Disney’s life, as based on the book The Perfect American, that will open the 2012-2013 season (also Glass’ 75th year).

Does this sour face scream "DISNEY!" to you?

First of all, this is just an incredibly strange culmination.  Second of all, I can’t imagine anything more wretched.  As a fan of Disney movies and Disney music, despite (and because of) the occasional pornographic splice or sexually suggestive movie cover, I’m terrified at the prospect of Philip Glass even approaching this subject matter.

I know many people consider him one of the preeminent American composers of our time, but I think his operas are garbage.  Everything he writes is recycled and circular.  It’s like chinese water torture, or like being on a merry-go-round you can’t get off.  It makes me simultaneously sleepy and nauseated.  He is going to MANGLE this.  I went to the Met’s recent production of Satyagraha, which was supposedly about Ghandi’s life, and I had to leave after one act it was so awful.  It was a symphony of dying cats, in round.

Glass seems to think he’s perfect for the job, however: “The story of the last days of Walt Disney, American icon and creator of perhaps the most pervasive fantasy world on our planet, is surprisingly gripping and at times disturbing.”  I agree, but please, Philip, for the sake of Disney’s memory and legacy, LEAVE IT ALONE!

Good signs and bad as the Dow sees significant Tuesday gains

I think most of us yesterday were poised to empty out our 401Ks and stuff the cash under our matresses, as the Dow Jones suffered it’s largest point (not percent) drop in history – 778 points, or roughly 7%.  Everyone freaked out when Congress (thankfully!) didn’t pass the $700 billion bail-out bill that Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke proposed last week after the collapse of Lehman Brothers and several other key Wall Street players.

Bernanke and Paulson.

Bernanke and Paulson.

One thing Americans do well, however, is keep the faith.  We hoped it would get better, and today is has:  the Dow went back up 485.21, a gain of 4.7%.  Several other vital indicators rose as well: the S&P 500 index recovered 58.35, or 5.3%, and the Nasdaq composite index rose 98.60, or 5.0%.

There is speculation that this recovery is mostly due to a belief that a new bail-out bill will pass on Thursday, when Congress meets again.  This belief is significantly rooted in the fact that the credit sector, where most of this crisis finds its origins, is still showing no sign of relief.  In fact, the benchmark London Interbank Offered Rate, or LIBOR, that banks charge to lend to one another rose sharply, making it more expensive and difficult for consumers and businesses to borrow money.

Hopefully if and when a “bail-out” bill does pass, it will include to some degree the following provisitions, rather than giving Bush’s treasury secretary carte blanche to use taxpayer’s (our!) money:

  • Limits on executive salaries: There is no reason we should be paying for so-and-so CEO’s house in the Hampton’s when he/she presided over one of the US’s biggest finacial crises EVER.
  • Compensation for the public:  Why would we care to save these greedy companies, who showed no regard for the average consumer when they offered sub-prime mortgages, etc., when we don’t even have the possibility of benefiting from their salvage.  I want STOCKS.
  • More regulation: I’m not a fan of the socialist nanny-state, but at the same time, the Republican policy of “less government is better government” has bit us in the ass for eight years running.  Let’s get some rules in there folks.  Infinite cash + no boundaries is ALWAYS a bad idea.  Just look at Paris Hilton!

What else do you think should be included in the bail-out bill, before you’d be ok with it passing?

Little Matilda Rose Ledger looks so much like her daddy!

I was so glad to hear that Ledger’s family has decided to “gift” Heath’s entire $20 million estate to wee Matilda.  Finally, a Hollywood family doesn’t succumb to greed!  Must be where Heath got his character from.
