Scottish-American television host and a stand-up comedian Craig Ferguson and his sweet 1-year-old son Liam were spotted walking together after their father-son breakfast date in Los Angeles, Calif. on Monday (April 30).
Liam obviously saw something of interest as he pointed to his left during his ride on daddy. At one point, the little guy rested his head on his father’s shoulder. Very sweet indeed.
Craig and his wife Megan, an art dealer, were wed in December 2008. Craig is also father to son Milo from a previous marriage.
Thankfully Craig Ferguson’s anthrax scare on the Late, Late Show turned out to be just a hoax; if not we couldn’t make fun of it, and where’s the justice in that? Yesterday the show’s studio received an envelope of a unknown white substance. “Someone sent here an envelope packed with white powder. I said, I’ll test it for you if you want,” the last night joked during the show’s taping later that day. “I have a special test that I conducted between 1979 and 1992.” While two people were held temporarily after being exposed to the power, a hazardous materials team arrived and was able to determine right away that the substance was benign. Subsequently, we’d like to know what Craig’s tests come up with!
Today CBS confirms that anthrax was actually cornstarch sent to the show from a European address. “The LAPD and FBI are currently investigating the situation,” the network said in a statement. Oh, so clearly someone was just mailing their grandmother some souvenir cornstarch from Albania and it got lost in the mail. Alternately, someone be crazy!
We have so many feelings about Us Magazine’s report that The Amazing Spiderman co-stars Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are dating. On the one hand: SQUEEEEEEEEEE. They are both precious and talented, a combination that makes us weak in the knees. If this is true, we have so many things to look forward to. Red carpet adorableness. Robsten-like secret dates. Robsten-like secret dates with Robsten! Sure we’re letting our imagination run wild, but our imagination has some pretty good ideas.
On the other hand: Weep! We were holding out hope that Garfield and his ex Shannon Woodward might get back together. The Raising Hope star is also precious and talented (she totes held her own on Craig Ferguson), and just seems so down to earth and cool. She wears sneakers. She hangs with Katy Perry. She’s funny on Twitter. And sure, she’s probably better without her ex (girl power!) but they just were so cute together. RIP forever, Shanndrew.
But overall, we feel pretty “yay!” about this coupling. Mostly because we once had the pleasure of interviewing Emma at an Anna Sui fashion week event in 2009 (we included a pic from the party below) where she was introduced as “that girl from Superbad.” No one had any idea who she was and she dutifully allowed herself to be dragged around by her publicist and posed for a gajillion photos with the clothes and was gracious and lovely with the reporters, most of whom weren’t giving her the time of day. So good for you, Emma. Congrats Andrew. We look forward to watching your every move together.
Below: A photo of Emma at that 2009 event and at the 2011 MTV Movie Awards, Andrew at the Maui Film Festival last week, and the alleged couple together at the Golden Globes.
Even if you aren’t a huge Chelsea Handler fan, you have to take off your top hat to her ability to go there. Seriously, she’s talking publicly about things other late-night hosts wouldn’t whisper to a priest. In an interview with the New York Times, Chelsea Handler’s abortion comments are just further evidence that the late-night host could give a tiny sidekick’s ass what people think of her decisions. “I had an abortion when I was 16. Because that’s what I should have done,” says Handler. “Otherwise I would now have a 20-year-old kid. Anyway, those are the things that people shouldn’t be dishonest about.” Is Jimmy Fallon talking about teenage abortions? Don’t think so. Jimmy Kimmel? Very rarely.
Despite her candidness about her own life, Handler practically loses her lunch over some of the choices she sees on reality TV. “We’re seeking out such grossness in human behavior and want such mindless entertainment,” she explained. “16 and Pregnant. Getting rewarded for being pregnant when you’re a teenager? Are you serious? I mean, that makes me want to kill somebody.” But don’t worry if Chelsea comments offend you; she’ll inevitably make it around to some taboo subject you’ll involuntarily laugh at. Says Handler, “I try to make fun of everyone as often as possible, especially minorities. I’m a Jewish woman, so …” So someone tell Craig Ferguson to step up his game.
