Under-seasoned weekend left-overs
OFF THE RACK
Cover: Did you know that in the history of mothers, motherhood, motherlodes, motherlands and smothering there has never been a new mother better than the mother that is Jessica Simpson? True story. She's "effortlessly maternal" and "born to be a mom." So, I'm very sorry to have to tell all the mothers out there who are celebrating Mother's Day that you are not as great at it as Jessica Simpson. Not only because you didn't raise your kids in "a jewel box of a nursery" but also because you don't have a deal worth $4 million with Weight Watchers to get rid of the baby weight.
This week in epic love biscuits: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are totally getting married really soon and the ironclad proof is that Kanye, on a new track, raps about wanting to see Kim in a white dress.
Cover: Rihanna is this close to sinking into a never-ending orgy of drug- and booze-fuelled wild partying, excessive spending and unhinged sexytime with hot girls and boys alike. Sadly, all kinds of meddlers and busybodies are trying to stop her.
This week in poor, sad Jen: It's all over for Jennifer and ersatz-Brad because she's such a nagging horror of a manliness destroyer. Justin (am I ever glad I didn't bother to learn his last name) and Jen have not been photographed together for 32 days! That's like 83 years in mega-star time. Everything fell apart when the couple moved from New York to L.A. at Jen's urging. Such a pest. Oh, and Star has yet another Brad vs. Justin comparison chart. These comparisons will presumably continue until both are dead and buried and we'll see who has the better headstone.
Cover: Gayle may betray Oprah ... zzzzz ... lesbians ... book deal ... zzzz ... tell-all ... zzzzz ...
This week in matchmaking services: Tom Cruise picked out a boyfriend for his daughter and now he wants the two to get married as soon as possible. Which sounds like a reasonable plan seeing as she's 19 and approaching old-maid territory.
Worst gold-digger ever: J.Lo wants to have a baby with her 25-year-old boyfriend, but he's all, "I'm too young." What is wrong with you? Refusing to have a baby with J.Lo is like taking your life-long meal ticket and tearing it up into pieces.
This week in bad mothers: Bradley Cooper's controlling mom is driving away all his girlfriends and she is the only reason Brad isn't happily married.
