LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Your Daily Dispatch of Celebrity Shenanigans
Leona To Follow In Angelina’s Footsteps: Singer Leona Lewis could be taking a cue from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt when it comes to parenthood. After a recent trip to South Africa, the singer told Britain’s Daily Mirror, “I wanted to take home all the kids. They were so cute. All of them had been orphaned because of HIV and it was heart-rending… there are so many who need help – both here and abroad – you just don’t know where to start.” Another Angelina-esque celeb is certainly never a bad thing!
Laura Bush & Jonas Brothers Get Muddy: First Lady Laura Bush hung out with, Nick, Kevin and Joe Jonas at Dallas’s Trinity River Audubon Center on Sunday with 150 lucky kids, People reported. The first lady and Disney brothers helped the students make seed balls with compost, clay, grass seeds and water. Now that First Ladies and teen heartthrobs are going green, there’s no excuse left for anyone else – Go green today!
Heather Mills Offers Her Pool For Fire Aid: Heather Mills appears to have built her $1.6 million dollar pool without a permit and now city officials in Robertsbridge, East Sussex are deciding whether Sir Paul McCartney’s ex-wife should be made to fill the pool with concrete, according to Britain’s Daily Mail. But Heather has a plan. “In an emergency it could be used by the fire brigade. It is solely a recreational facility for the enjoyment of the private residence,” a rep for Heather told the paper. Heather Mills — fire safety advocate!
Palin’s “SNL” Tops McCain’s: It appears the country enjoys Sarah Palin’s sketch comedy work more than her running mate’s. Palin drew 15 million total viewers during her October 18 appearance on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” – a full 3 million more than McCain’s audience of 12 million, this past weekend, The New York Daily News reported. But with McCain/Palin trailing in the polls and only one more day of the election, will this be the last time viewers see Palin on TV? We’re not about to say, “you betcha,” about that!
