This week in Tattle

Posted: October 06, 2013


In an open letter, Sinead O'Connor told Miley Cyrus, "Don't let the music industry make a prostitute out of you." Miley stuck out her tongue at the well-meaning advice and went on to question O'Connor's sanity.


After 25 years of leading people to believe that Ronan Farrow was Woody Allen's son, Mia Farrow told Vanity Fair that he may, in fact, be Frank Sinatra's. Birds did it, bees did it, even Mia and Sinatra in his 70s did it . . .

In other knocking-boots news, Chelsea Clinton told Glamour that she and husband Marc Mezvinsky (a/k/a Marjorie Margolies' boy, pride of Merion Station) have designated 2014 "the year of the baby."

Chelsea said her Marine One Helicopter mom, Hillary Clinton, asks about the couple's grandchild-production plans "every single day."


Justin Bieber was carried on the shoulders of three large men up steps leading to a portion of China's Great Wall.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian showed up in France to do whatever it is they do, while baby North stayed out west with Kim's crazy family.

Stephen Colbert extended Tattle guy Howard Gensler's 15 minutes of Bill O'Reilly-inspired fame (see Monday, below) with a natty screen shot and a one-second salute to "some guy in Philadelphia named Howard."


Amanda Bynes left her treatment for mental illness at UCLA Medical Center and checked into the Canyon celebrity rehab spot. Consternation ensued.

Documentarian Charles Ferguson ("Inside Job") walked away from a documentary on Hillary Clinton because no one would talk to him.


Tattle columnist Howard Gensler was named last week's Pinhead of the Week by Bill O'Reilly because O'Reilly claimed that an item about him and his new bestseller "Killing Jesus," mocked his faith. It didn't, although we now know that mocking anything O'Reilly related is a sin, but someone had to be the tackling dummy stand-in for the evil "secular press" that was persecuting O'Reilly all the way to the bank.

Hooking up

You didn't really think George Clooney was going to be lonely for long, did you? Following his split with Stacy Keibler, Us Weekly is now linking Clooney, 52, with 33-year-old model Monika Jakisic, the "Croatian Sensation."

We're guessing that's what Clooney's feeling.

Knocked up

Us Weekly reports that Vanessa Simmons, daughter of Run-DMC's Joseph Simmons, and Mike Wayans, son of Damon Wayans, are expecting their first child in February.

* There is no shriek like the shriek of a baby, so ponder this: Tenor Roberto Alagna and soprano Aleksandra Kurzak are having one.

Alagna and soprano Angela Gheorghiu were married in 1996 but appear to be in the process of divorcing after a lengthy separation.

Us also reports that Heather Morris, who played cheerleader Brittany on "Glee," has given birth to a baby boy, Elijah, with her longtime boyfriend Taylor Hubbell. This is her first child.

* The Los Angeles Times reported that Rachael Leigh Cook and Daniel Gillies are now parents to a baby girl.

This is the first child for the couple, who've been married nine years.

And yes, she's all that.
