It can be intimidating for new mothers these days. In addition to the whole new world of taking care of a newborn and maintaining a family, there is this emerging phenomenon of “have it all” mothers in Hollywood. Every time you turn on the television or hop on the Internet there are constant images of celebrity children (both biological and adopted) alongside their enormously successful movie star moms.
Not happy with the current situation, Bobby Brown has decided to sue ex-wife Whitney Houston in a California court. The former R&B star is seeking spousal support and changes to the one-sided custody arrangement for their daughter.

Having a stalker can be creepy. And for Sandra Bullock it’s gotten creepy to the point that she’s taking more legal action. The actress petitioned a Huntington Beach court to extend the restraining order against Marcia Diana Valentine, and the court granted her request.

If you’re a venture capitalist, you may want to consider opening a “Celebrity Adoption” agency. I think you’d do well! That being said, the latest addition to the Celebrity Adoption Club is none other than Sheryl Crow.

Everyone makes mistakes. It’s what we do to amend our wrongs that tells of our character. For Mel Gibson, it looks like he’s bringing his A-game as he recovers from the hideously embarrassing “incident” of last year.

According to recent studies - and common sense - Britney Spears is the most overexposed celebrity in the world. According to studies by Encino, a whopping 72 per cent of the US public believes the 'Lucky' songstress has received too much publicity in 2007, while only 54 per cent thought the same was true five years ago.
Meanwhile, resulting from the same survey, only 25 per cent of pollsters answered yes to a question asking if they thought that Britney was talented. Who else is getting too much of the limelight?
