I feel the same way Mykie. Heath and Michelle announced their split at the beginning of Sept. 07, nearly 5 months before he passed. And it's been nearly 7 months since his death. She's gone thru alot and has, as always, kept Matilda #1 by protecting her and taking great care of her. I think she would not bring anyone into Matilda's life and her own that would be harmful in any way to either one of them. She deserves to be happy and healthy, as does Matilda. I think Heath would've wanted her to do so. So yes, good for her!

Making fun of child molestation is NEVER a funny thing. So, that whole roast for Saget was really screwed up if they had nothing better to laugh about. Jenna Jameson...for some reason I feel like the poor kid is growing in a polluted womb. Not only for the obvious reasons but for all the drugs and alcohol she's done and from what I heard, still doing.

pink, I think we're sharing a brain today, you've made several comments that made it unnecessary for me to say anything. LMAO

thats what i was about to type mykie "jtysgram - Michelle and Heath weren't even together when he died, so it's been longer than that since she moved on."

jtysgram - Michelle and Heath weren't even together when he died, so it's been longer than that since she moved on. Maybe this man was her "strong shoulder to cry on" and helped her get through the loss. We don't know the circumstances, but that is a very cold comment to make. She didn't die, she's still a mother to her a daughter, and is living her life. Which, in everything I've read about Heath, is PRECISELY what he would have wanted her to do. Good for her!

gilbert gottfried is obnoxious and not funny. his "joke" was disgusting. 93 is a nice's always sad when someone dies but she was 93 -how long did you expect her to live?

jtysgram, "williams moved on too quickly" is very much in bad taste. it's obvious she was deeply affected by his death, i'm sure none of us have any idea how much -- to belittle her experience and assume she is doing something wrong by trying to move on seven months later is foul. if she's fallen in love then that is amazing and she deserves to be happy.

Californiagirl, I haven't listened to the roast yet (no speakers at work) but he didn't REALLY say that? DID HE? I do NOT like Gilbert Gottfried. I don't think he's funny, I think he's obnoxious and mean, so I don't know why I'm surprised but that seems over the top even for him. What a DIRT BAG if he did that! I read the joke Stamos made, about Bob in the girls Dressing room. That was a BIT off, but it wasn't implicit so I think it was more acceptable. THAT is the kind of thing you would expect at a roast. That's the kind of thing I thought people were referring to, then I read your post. Man oh man.

RIP Helene! She had a long life, fortunately. I also like the idea of Michelle Williams and Spike Jonze together. She's had a tough year. Why not?

God bless Leo. He's gaining too much weight lately though. Williams moved on too quickly. Yuck.

It's sad that Leo's grandmother died, but why is this big news? Of course, its tragic when anyone dies but it's a celebrity's grandparent, not a celebrity. I could understand if it was an immediate family member or something... As for the roast about Bob Saget, I think it's really innappropriate what was said about the Olsen Twins. Yes, it is a roast and it's about making jokes about people, but Gilbert Gottfried's joke crossed the line. He basically said that Bob Saget anally raped the Olsen Twins with they were younger and seduced them with chocolate milk. Blech. It's just weird to make a joke about something like that, especially since Bob is close with his Full House kids.

Poor Leo, I thought it was so cute how he used to take her to award shows. I remember that after Titanic, girls used to write messages on the walls of his Oma's apartment block. That must have been funny and embarrassing for her at the same time.

On German televesion they said Leo's grandmother passed away on Monday in a hospital in Recklinghausen. Since he had been in Germany last week, he had the chance to see her one last time. Poor Leo; he always said how much he loved his granny!

My condolences to him. I love Leo, hopefully he is ok. I am really close to my grandmother so I know I will be very sad when she dies. I don't even like to think about that.

that has to be hard for leo - i hope that he and his family are doing ok and supporting each other. i'm sure the scarlett is embarrassed - you can't say anything if your'e a celeb cause you know that it's going to get blown out of proportion i think that it's nice that michelle is happy with someone. people are always going to make a big deal about whomever she's with, but honestly, as long as she and matilda are happy and healthy - then that's all that should matter as for jenna and tito - that's lovely for the both of them. she's been looking a bit unhealthy lately, so hopefully this will do for her what harlow did for nicole - and get her back on track.

Poor Leo :(. I haven't seen the roast, but I have heard Bob Saget's own stand-up and he says some pretty wrong things about the twins too. Just beyond weird when he played their father for years...
