Mommy smearest

It's spillsville for Jaid Barrymore, splitsville for Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley and the slammer for Bobby Brown.

Topics: Celebrity,

No. 1 on my list of mothers I’m glad aren’t mine? Jaid
Barrymore.

In just a few short months, Drew’s mom’s behavior has gone from
bad (that attempt
to auction off her daughter’s baby clothes online)
to worse href="/people/col/reit/2000/05/16/nptues/index.html">(getting arrested for
gun possession on Mother’s Day) to utterly mortifying.

Now, according to the New York Daily News, she’s shopping around a tell-all
autobiography that’ll make Cybill Shepherd’s “I slept with everyone
and their stunt double” confessions sound downright prudish.

Barrymore claims to have bonked Jim Morrison, Jackson Browne, James
Taylor
and Kiefer Sutherland. And if she didn’t … ahem … dance
with that wolf Kevin Costner, it wasn’t for lack of trying on his part.

Then again, Costner may not have shown quite the imagination of
Warren Beatty, who allegedly requested a threesome with both Jaid
and Drew. (A request I can only hope was denied.)

“It’s Jaid’s attempt to set the record straight,” her agent, Sheree
Bykofsky,
told the tabloid. “Jaid’s and Drew’s lives have been an open
book for years, but Jaid has sat around all these years while lies have been
told about her.”

Much of the book will come as a surprise to Drew, Bykofsky maintains, but “it
should go a long way toward healing their relationship.”

Funny, that’s just what Warren said.

Shoulda called it “Live
Fucking Aid”

“It’s elastic, seductive, blunt, persuasive, sexy and flexible. It can be a verb,
a noun, an adjective, anything.”

Bob Geldof on his favorite word, “fuck.”

A sad day on Notting
Hill …

Time has apparently done what Divine Brown couldn’t: driven a
splintery wedge between Hugh Grant and Elizabeth Hurley.

The longtime lovers have announced that, after 13 years together, they’ll be
going their separate ways — at least for the time being.

“It is a temporary thing. It is a mutual and amicable decision,” said a
spokeswoman for the couple’s production company, Simian Films.

The couple will continue to share a house, but won’t have to worry about
bumping into each other for a while. (He’s filming href="/mwt/feature/1998/05/cov_18feature.html">“Bridget Jones’
Diary” in England; she’s on her way to America to work on her next
project.)

In an apparent attempt to quell the rumors raging through the British
tabloids that Hugh has been playing around on Liz, the spokeswoman added
that the duo “would like to stress that there are no third parties involved.”

Thoughtful to the
end

“In my last big parts, I kept thinking, ‘Suppose I die in the middle? What is it
going to cost everyone?’”

Sir John Gielgud, who died Sunday at age 96.

Juicy bits

The nutty director? Jerry Lewis is set to direct a new comedy,
“Truffles,” which revolves around an American chef working for the French
president who goes undercover to investigate a truffle-trafficking scam.
Lewis will also take a small role in the film, which begins filming in Paris in
January. The aging comedian says he’s looking forward to returning to
France because, “I will walk down the Champs-Elysees in Paris and get hugs
and kisses thrown at me.” Unless Mickey Rourke gets there first.

In other old-guy news … Larry King’s wife birthed the couple’s
second child: Cannon Edward King. I hope, with a name like that,
the little feller came out like a shot …

Another monkey toucher! “Saturday Night Live” star Will Ferrell has
signed on to appear in “Dieter,” Mike Myers’ big-screen version of
his SNL sketch “Sprockets.” He’ll play Dieter’s American cousin, Bob Sheeder.
No word on whether or not he’ll wear a fez.

Bobby Brown really doesn’t have his wife’s luck with the
law. Whitney Houston’s hubby has been ordered by a judge to
remain in jail in Florida until June 19, when his case will be heard. He’s
accused of testing positive for cocaine while on probation for drunk driving.
After hearing the news, Brown turned to his lawyer and said, “It’s not fair,
man. It’s not fair.” Tell it to the judge.

It’s called the boob tube, Ed. Attorney href="/people/col/reit/2000/05/03/npwed/index.html">Ed Masry, of
“Erin
Brockovich”
fame, is joining fellow lawyers F. Lee Bailey, Christopher
Darden
and Gloria
Allred
on an upcoming syndicated court TV show. On the show, the
lawyers will duke it out on behalf of people who, according to Variety, “would
normally not have access to such high-powered legal representation.” No,
that doesn’t include you, Bobby Brown.

    Young Daya has yet to become entirely jaded, but she has the character's trademark skeptical pout down pat.

    CINDY   
    Cindy's embrace of Judaism makes sense when we see her childhood, lived under the fist of a terrifying father who preached a fire-and-brimstone version of Christianity. As she put it: "I was raised in a church where I was told to believe and pray. And if I was bad, I’d go to hell."

    CAPUTO   
    Joey Caputo has always tried to be a good guy, whether it's offering to fight a disabled wrestler at a high school wrestling event or giving up his musical ambitions to raise another man's child. But trying to be a nice guy never exactly worked out for him -- which might explain why he decides to take the selfish route in the Season 3 finale.

    BOO   
    In one of the season's more moving flashbacks, we see a young Boo -- who rejected the traditional trappings of femininity from a young age -- clashing with her mother over what to wear. Later, she makes the decision not to visit her mother on her deathbed if it means pretending to be something she's not. As she puts it, "I refuse to be invisible, Daddy. Not for you, not for Mom, not for anybody.”

    PENNSATUCKY
    Pennsatucky had something of a redemption arc this season, and glimpses of her childhood only serve to increase viewer sympathy for the character, whose mother forced her to chug Mountain Dew outside the Social Security Administration office and stripped her of her sexual agency before she was even old enough to comprehend it.

    CHANG
    This season, we got an intense look at the teenage life of one of Litchfield's most isolated and underexplored inmates. Rebuffed and scorned by her suitor at an arranged marriage, the young Chinese immigrant stored up a grudge, and ultimately exacted a merciless revenge.

    HEALY
    It's difficult to sympathize with the racist, misogynist CO Sam Healy, but the snippets we get of his childhood -- raised by a mentally ill mother, vomited on by a homeless man he mistakes for Jesus when he runs to the church for help -- certainly help us understand him better.

    NORMA
    This season, we learned a lot about one of Litchfield's biggest enigmas, as we saw the roots of Norma's silence (a childhood stutter) and the reason for her incarceration (killing the oppressive cult leader she followed for decades).
