    There are a lot of people that do this. The placenta is very, very rich in protien and is supposed to really help breast milk develop. I've known a few people that did this and its done widely in other cultures and in the wild. Animals eat the placenta exactly because the mother needs the protien.

    While I wouldn't do it and it sounds gross, to each his own.

    I do know a family that bought a tree to commemorate the baby's birth. The used the placenta in the bottom of the hole to fertilize the tree. I thought that was kind of cool.

    There are a zillion different foods out there in this big ole world that's chock full of protein and nutrients.
    Yea, I've heard of people eating the umbilical cord & placenta.
    This is nothing less than cannibalism IMO. Totally unnecessary and overboard.

    Since he said that as a "joke".. I'll betcha that there ARE some sort of "plans" with the junk. He'll probably add bits and pieces of it in every meal and/or salad, fed to the family (including his adopted children) over a course of months...where they wouldn't know or suspect. He's loony enough to do it.

    Also, how totally rude of him to have the whole family attend these "sessions" on child birth and what to do afterward, etc.. as if he's the only father in the world, or this is the first child born that's "loved".

    Really, Tom, jokes about eating the placenta should only be told by people who are not generally believed to be completely off their rockers. Maybe leave the placenta-eating jokes for Brad Pitt.

    I read somewhere, I believe an old article on EWeekly, that Katie was 6 months in November. If that's true, and since she's still pregnant now, she's at 10 months.

    While, I doubt she's been pregnant for 10 months and that her pregnancy was a fake, in looking at pre-pregnancy photos, I feel like there is something fishy going on.

    It's also weird, to me, that she's out shopping every day for non-maternity, non-baby, items like shoes that she won't even be able to wear for a while.

    Was Parade's Poll Cruise-controlled?
    A Parade magazine poll, which suggested that 84 percent of respondents blame the press and not the actor's antics for Tom Cruise's public-relations woes, may be suspect. Parade's publicist tells the New York Post, "We found [the outcome] a little bit fishy, so we did some investigating [and] found out that more than 14,000 [of the 18,000-plus] votes were cast from only 10 computers. One computer was responsible for nearly 8,400 votes alone. It seems [someone] resorted to extraordinary measures to try to portray Tom in a positive light." A rep for Cruise had no comment, claiming, "I know nothing about the poll" but probably a damn lot about psychiatry.

    Katie Holmes gave birth today!

    I just heard on the radio that Katie Holmes had her baby today. No news as to whether it's a boy or a girl. Or who the father is.

    Brooke Shields had a baby girl today, too.

    And Melissa Etheridge's partner is expecting twins.

    Fertile, fertile, fertile!
