We all know Hilary Duff as a completely normal and rational celebrity.
But after giving birth to baby Luca Cruz in March, this new mother may have overshared some information when she revealed that she secretly kept the stump of her newborn’s umbilical cord.
“You know what was a big milestone? The belly button falling off. That was a huge one. And then I wanted to keep it but my husband was like, ‘No, that’s gross, you can’t keep it!’ I’m like, ‘I’m totally keeping it,’ and I secretly kept it.” Duff said in an interview with People.
“But now it’s not a secret anymore. It’s in a Ziploc bag in the back of my makeup drawer. Luca’s going to think I’m a freak!”
So, that’s it?
Jimmy Kimmel continued to terrorize kids everywhere by creating a new cruel challenge for parents. A couple weeks ago Alicia Silverstone released a controversial video in which she chews up her son’s food before feeding it to him mouth-to-mouth. Silverstone’s son thinks the chewed up mush is delicious but a lot of other kids don’t think so.
Kimmel had parents attempt to serve their kids pre-chewed food in honour of the video and to send him their reactions with the title “I Silverstoned My Kid.” Of course, chewing up food before serving it to infants is a real thing, but it’s not typical to do it for grown children. Still, their reactions are priceless.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Jason Segel and Michelle Williams warm our icy hearts when they’re caught out on a date, and January Jones makes us want to puke with her placenta pills.
James Cameron goes down the Mariana Trench for science
The Titanic/Avatar director went 36,000 ft. below sea level for National Geographic. While he didn’t see any deep sea monsters, expect James Cameron to turn the sea into a metaphorical wasteland. As he said to National Geographic: “There had to be a moment where I just stopped, and took it in, and said ‘This is where I am; I’m at the bottom of the ocean, the deepest place on Earth. What does that mean?’” I don’t know, I just don’t know…
Hunger Games soundtrack debuts at number one
No surprises here. The Hunger Games soundtrack debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart. It’s the first soundtrack to top the list in three years and features everyone from Taylor Swift to Kid Cudi to Arcade Fire.
Jason Segel and Michelle Williams are dating
Jason Segel and Michelle Williams are like Internet cats. Do we really need to see photos of them together? No. Do we want to? Yes, because like my favourite Internet cats, they make me feel warm and fuzzy inside.
Courtney Stodden for PETA
PETA was on the right track when they lost a Kardashian, but somehow lost their way again when this this barely legal mound of plastic started publicly supporting them. It’s like they want their supporters to be 50 IQ points dumber.
Octomom poses topless for a European magazine, inspired universal gagging
Nadya Suleman finally discovered that having octuplets don’t make you famewhore money. So to pay rent, she decided to reveal it all (almost). Octomom said she “pinged back to shape like a rubberband,” but her body looks like it’s been Kate Gosselin’d, nipped and tucked all over.
January Jones eats her placenta in pill form
This last spot almost went to Alicia Silverstone feeding her baby like a bird. Then, I asked myself, who would even think to be all, “Doctor, after I pop this kid out, do you mind saving my placenta? It’s my version of a protein shake!” Famous people. That’s who.
Alicia Silverstone has given birth, reports X17.
The ‘Clueless’ actress reportedly had a water birth at an LA-area birthing center on Friday. The new mommy is already at home with the baby.
Throughout her entire pregnancy, the 34-year-old actress has been promoting her new diet book ‘The Kind Diet,’ which follows vegan principle. I guess it’s no surprise she went for a natural birth.
Silverstone and her husband Christopher Jarecki, 40, confirmed they were expecting their first baby together back in January. The couple have not released the gender or name of the baby.
Congrats! That kind of birth sounds rather, painful, but if it made her happy then by all means. Power to you!
Don’t like the Beasties? Well, check out the casting call: Elijah Wood, Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, John C. Reilly, Seth Rogen, Jack Black, Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst, David Cross, Will Arnett, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzman, Adam Scott, Rainn Wilson, Steve Buscemi, Chloë Sevigny, Alicia Silverstone, Martin Starr, Ted Danson, Rashida Jones, R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, Ad-Rock, Mike D, and MCA.
The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival last month and received a mix of reviews. In the video, we find the Beastie Boys (Elijah Wood, Seth Rogan, Danny McBride) in 1986 the day after the legendary “Fight for Your Right (To Party)” video took place. It is rumoured to be a long-running Saturday Night Live skit from there on out.
Judging by the preview, it appears to be some battle royale between past and present versions of the Beastie Boys. At the same time, it is between comedy of today versus yesterday. Some fascinating double-entendre, I do say.
Ch-ch-check it out!
