Jillian Michaels Haitian adopted Daughter - 01

Jillian Michaels First Pictures With New Born Adopted Baby From Haiti

Jillian Michaels was spotted with her new daughter.  The 38 year old fitness guru was seen out and about with her baby yesterday for the first time in Malibu.

In January she revealed just how grueling the adoption process was, but she was excited that she was matched.  Michaels stated,

‘I’ve been matched with a little girl. I went over to visit orphanages and I ended up falling in love with this little girl, and by the grace of God, I got matched up with her.’

Michaels decided to take time off of her busy schedule and left The Biggest Loser to focus on the adoption process.  Her plan is to adopt two children and she entered a home study process to prepare.  She was criticized from an article in Women’s Health when she said that she,

can’t handle doing that [pregnancy] to my body.

She then explained later in the LA Times that this was a misquote, and hinted to medical issues that could possibly prevent her from child bearing.

In 2010 in Ladies Home Journal she also came out about her bisexuality which could also make having a child a little difficult.

In an interview with Access Hollywood Michaels was quoted as saying that if the adoption didn’t work out that we wouldn’t see her,

“You’ll know why I’m devastated and not coming out of my house for months,”

Looks like Jillian won’t have to go into hiding.  Check out the pics below.  I can’t lie, that baby’s cute!


Jim Carrey’s Daughter Jane, Gets Special Treatment. Why Not, She’s Jim Carrey’s Daughter!

Apparently I missed Jane Carrey’s performance, but after all the yappin’ online, I had to see what all the buzz was about.  She performed Bonnie Raitt’s “Something to Talk About” which is a pretty bold song choice.

There was plenty of backlash, with reporters and bloggers going nuts because of the so called, calling in “favors” because of her super famous Dad.  An example, “Amy Reither” from the LA Times,

‘Jane “proceeded to milk that connection [with her dad] for a ticket to Hollywood on ‘Idol.’ Sure, she could sing well enough, but unless she’d stood on that aircraft carrier deck and croaked like a frog, the three judges would clearly have put her through.’


Now Radar Online released more details of the 24 Year Old Mom’s special treatment,

“She didn’t have to sleep outside and wait for hours hoping to audition like everyone else, She basically had an appointment and showed up!”

“Her audition was pre-arranged with the producers. She did not wait and line up for hours or days outside – she had a time, she showed up and went in,” the source said.


During her back story, Jane Carrey herself, talked about how difficult it was growing up the daughter of an A list celeb,

“It was definitely fun growing up with him as a father, he’s not the most extravagant celebrity so it’s been fairly normal — fairly. Everyone growing up has their issue with identity and trying to find themselves, It is difficult kind of growing up in the shadow of something and trying to find your place in the world under the huge shadow.

“The last name definitely helps and hurts, I feel like there’s kind of this pressure to maybe be better, because if I make it somewhere, I run the risk of people saying ‘Oh you only got there because of this.'”

I say, Who Cares?  First, she wasn’t even close to the worse person that received a golden ticket to Hollywood, and at the end of the day the public will vote on who wins.  She’s Jim Carrey’s daughter for crying out loud.  That should at least be good for something.  Heck no, I’m not sleeping on the ground overnight to get in, when my Dad is “The Mask”.  My Dad is Fire Marshall Bill!  My Dad is Ace Ventura!  At the end of the day, what makes “Idol” , “Idol” is the fact that talent and America’s approval gets you the recording contract.  So everyone chill out.  She only made it to Hollywood…that’s it.  There is a long way to go, before you are making Ford commercials. Like Randy said, “I like the “POH” tential”.

Here’s her audition,

Howard Stern will Replace Piers Morgan as a Judge on NBC’s America’s Got Talent.

Howard Stern has signed on as the judge of America’s Got Talent!

Big Money Stern confirmed this via twitter – which we all know by know makes everything official!

Shooting starts in February and the surprising thing is that Howard will be travelling for all of the auditions.  This will make it extremely difficult for the shock jock to do his show on SiriusXM at the same time, however production will move from Los Angeles to New York to accommodate Stern.

NBC released a statement,

“Howard Stern’s larger-than-life personality will bring a thrilling new dynamic to ‘America’s Got Talent’ starting this summer, He’s a proven innovator and his track record in broadcasting is truly remarkable. Howard is very passionate about this show and is fully committed to its future success.”

Stern is known for his antics and lewd and raunchy interviews but he said that NBC never lectured him on behaving.  He basically pitched NBC his ideas and the network was on board.

The Parents Television Council started in almost immediately calling the move to sign Howard “desperate”.


According to the LA Times it’s rumored that NBC will be paying Howard 10 million dollars per season.  NBC has not confirmed or denied this.   If you are wondering “why so much”? Free promotion and a guaranteed spot at being the summer’s number one show  on prime time for two nights per week.

Not only does Stern have a huge following, he has his own radio show.  He already had Sharon Osbourne on the show and gave her a hard time about giving gay contestants too much props!!  Stern said,

To like someone because they’re gay is ridiculous,

Hats off to NBC  – this is a good move all around.  What will be really interesting is Robin Quivers – Stern’s co-host hates AGT, Stern hate’s NBC and Jay Leno, and Stern loves CBS’s Dave Letterman.  This will make for an interesting dynamic.
