Lola is an adult now!
Prepare to feel REALLY damn old … because I’m here to bum you out a bit and inform you that Madonna‘s eldest child, Lourdes Maria, is celebrating her 18th birthday today. If you didn’t already feel old as Hell when we learned in June that Lola is attending college classes at Maddy‘s alma mater the University of Michigan, news today that Lola is now old enough to vote should depress you entirely. It’s insane to me to know that it was 18 years ago today that Madonna first gave birth. 18 years. 18! Ugh. More »

I’m quite certain that it will come as absolutely no surprise to any out there AT ALL to learn that I spent my evening/night at Disneyland … but I promise, I had a really good reason for being there. Two great reasons, actually. First, my friends Genevieve and Charlie’s daughter Audrey turned 4 years old yesterday and, as it their tradition, they took her to Disneyland for her special day. Second, Disney hosted a special screening of Sleeping Beauty in the park for Annual Passport holders in honor of the 55th anniversary of the film’s release as well as the film’s re-release on DVD. So, you see, there was really no way I could miss either of these major events. More »

I want to send out a HEAP of Birthday Lurve to my friend Omar who is celebrating his birthday today … in Paris, France of all places. Omar is my BFF Darion’s boyfriend and for the past 8 months, he has made my friend happier than I have ever seen him before. As such, Omar is a very important person to me and the day of his birth is worth celebrating. Darion and Omar jetted off to London a week ago to kick off Omar’s birthday trip and they made their way to Paris this week to cap off their whirlwind trip. I hope you will join me in sending lots of love their way today as they continue to celebrate Omar’s birthday and their loving relationship. More »
Birthday Lurve for the Ginger Prince
Prince Harry — more formerly known as Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales — turns 30 years old today and in celebration of his special day, I have culled together a collection of photos that take us on a trip through his 3 decades of life. Altho his older brother Prince William has always been higher than Harry in the British royal line of succession (as is William‘s son Prince George and will be his forthcoming second child, due to be born next year), there is no doubt that Harry is the funner prince of the British royal family. A philanthropist, a military man, a party animal … Prince Harry is many things. Altho he has made some dumb mistakes in his past, Prince Harry has always been my fave British royal so I’m happy to send him all the Birthday Lurve today to his royal gingerness today. Happy 30th Birthday, Harry. Here’s to at least 30 more!
Sean Preston is 9, Jayden James is 8
Last month we started seeing video and photos of Britney Spears‘s sons Sean Preston and Jayden James doing quite a bit of skateboarding (with varying degrees of success) so it should come as no surprise that the boys wanted to have their joint birthday party at a local skatepark. Britney shared on her official Twitter profile a cute photo of her birthday boys mugging for the camera at their birthday party this weekend, which you can see in full below. It’s crazy to see how much her sons have grown! It seems like only yesterday they were wee babies … now their grown up sk8er bois. When did that happen?! More »

I successfully made my way to Detroit early yesterday so that I could visit my dad in the hospital, where he is recuperating this week. Despite assurances by my mom that he was fine, I was worried the entire time it took me to get home to see him … so you can imagine my relief when I walked into his hospital room and heard him laughing with the on duty nurse. I was afraid he was going to look pale and haggard but he looked and sounded fine, which was exactly why I needed to fly across the country to see him :) My mom and I spent a few hours with him yesterday until he was ready to rest so, yeah, my Tuesday was a great day.

Yesterday a bunch of us took our dear friend Tamar for an early birthday surprise trip to Catalina Island for a day of fun in the sun and I’m happy to report that a superfun time was had by all. In the 8 years I’ve lived in SoCal, I’ve never been to Catalina before and I was waiting for the perfect reason to go. When Tam’s husband Rob came up with the idea to surprise her, I was so in! We all met in Long Beach to hop the Catalina Express to the island and our day of fun got underway. We had a blast but, yeah, Catalina is much, much different than I thought it would be. More »
Yesterday, as you may know, was Beyoncé‘s birthday and her husband Jay Z couldn’t let the day go by without wishing her a Happy Birthday. Jay uploaded a video to his official You Tube channel in honor of Bey‘s day and as you can see above, it features lots of images of Beyoncé being fabulous. The video ends with Jay exclaiming, Yeah, B! … and really, that is all that needs to be said.

Today is my BFF Sarah‘s birthday so I would like to devote this post to her. Unfortunately, I cannot be in Detroit right now to celebrate with her as I have in year’s past but I’m sending all of my love to her today and I’m hoping you will send your love as well. Sarah and I have been friends for 2 decades now and we have been through a lot together over the years. She has been there for me in for the many, many, many good times and for the invariable bad times with love, support and unwavering friendship. It was hard for me to find just one photo to share of Sarah today so I had to select my fave photos from the years and years of fun we’ve shared <3 More »
Lucky lil 25 Cent
Yesterday we saw photos of baby North West carrying around a $1,400 YSL purse but today we learn that she isn’t the only baby baller rollin’ around Hollywood these days. 50 Cent gave his 2-year old son Sire his very own Mercedes ML450 SUV for his birthday. Granted, the kid’s Mercedes is a miniaturized version of the real thing but something tells me that the price tag of this lavish toy is pretty steep. Click below to see the sweet whip that Fitty bought for his son and try not to be insanely jealous of a 2-year old. More »
