    Re: Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    A sort of blast from the past: I just happened upon an on-line article about Tony Dow, who played Wally on Leave It to Beaver. He's now in his sixties and has a second successful career as a sculptor. In fact, he was one of two American sculptors whose work was included in a recent exhibit at the Louvre, featuring the work of artists from fourteen countries. The piece won't be a permanent part of the Louvre's collection, but still.... It's not like all that many artists get to say they have exhibited at the Louvre. And it's nice to hear about a former child star who seems to have grown into a happy, stable adult with successes in other areas.

    According to the article, a while back, he was up for a part and the director asked if he had any experience doing comedy. According to Dow, it was at that point that he thought perhaps it was time to retire from acting and look toward another career.

There could be security people who are filming you. There could could be hidden people in the bushes or far away. To think you are free to take off your top outside is really naive. I'm no famous person, but I would take off my top with full knowledge that it could be caught without my knowledge. To think otherwise is really shocking.
    I agree. Celebrities are caught topless or nude from time to time. It happens. Move on, this is not the big deal they are making it out to be. Go to court to get the pics off the internet and shut up. And all the outrage because she is a "royal."

    It boils down to everyone has the right to privacy in their own home, friends home, or hotel room, celebrity or not.

    The latest celebrity topless photos are of Heidi Klum and they were taken while she was on a private beach. She says that the photogs were MILES away using high power lenses and also trying to get pics of her from a helicopter She even said she doesn't have problems with them taking pics of her topless if she is on a public beach. The issue is that she was on a private beach AND they also took pictures of her young children.

    She said in an interview that her dad opened a restaurant and she's been eating there... lots of pizza and pasta. That's her excuse/explanation.

    I think Gaga's parents have owned restaurants for a long time. I don't think that's a recent development.

    I don't think she needs an excuse to put on some weight either. She is far from obese
