Pearls of Gossip: Mon 10/08


–> Looks like the King of Malibu is back on top…and off the wagon. Photos from a recent vacation show Mel Gibson looking a bit, um, blurry? They can take our lives, but they can never take our bourbon?


–>Thinking that stroller seat looks mighty empty for a brood of Puff Daddy‘s size? Well, consider his fam expanded, as Puffy has announced that he is father to Sarah Chapman’s daughter, Chance. At first, of course, he denied it like it was going out of style, but DNA tests have confirmed his paternity, and he responded to Rush & Molloy that “At first, I wasn’t sure if this was my child. Now that it has become clear she is, I will take care of her for the rest of her life.” He better keep it in his pants, or he’s going to throw all his money away on child support. He’s got a fucking Brady Bunch on his hands!


–> Really she’s sucking her thumb, but it appears that Zahara, who dad Brad Pitt said hates the paparazzi, is giving a big f-u to the surrounding cameramen. Or maybe she’s cursing her grandpa Jon Voight, who was seen leaving the Waldorf Astoria yesterday, where Brad, Angelina Jolie, and Co. are currently staying. A source said, “Jon wanted to meet the children but that didn?t happen. It was just a one-on-one with Angie but he thinks at least that?s a start.? Eek, remember in 2002 when he said that his daughter had “mental issues”–which could very well be true–and that statement began the estrangement? And then when he tried to comment on Shiloh‘s birth to TMZ’s cameras and couldn’t even get her name right? Kind of a Desperate Dave, that one…


–>I used to get embarrassed when my dad would mention bras or tampons, but then again, I wasn’t raised by Keith Allen, who recently told reporters he used his infant daughter Lily (now a singer) to sell nitrate poppers at the Glastonbury Festival: “I didn’t see what was wrong with taking little Lily along with me as a sales tool rather like the homeless lads do with dogs. Cute puppy guarantees punters will stop and stroke it and therefore give you money. Lil’ sat next to the stall gurgling in a pushchair while I cranked up the sales patter and knocked out the lager.”


–>After their reunion show sold out in a reported 67 seconds, trouble’s a’ brewin for the Spice Girls: Victoria “Posh” Beckham, Melanie “Sporty” Chisholm, Melanie “Scary” Brown, Geri “Ginger” Halliwell, and Emma “Baby” Bunton. Ginger let slip the name of the new single, “Headlines”, to British chat show GMTV on Friday. A source for the Daily Star seems to think the other girls, er, women, will be “furious” that she released the name of their first single without alerting them. Sounds like a fake feud that the papers create to make news. Either way, you can continue on with your day now that you’ve found out the title of their new single, I know it was kind of “need to know” info.
