Toddler Dies After Grandmother Gives Her Morphine
Who gives a baby morphine for teething pain?
According to Reading Eagle:
A 53-year-old woman told a Berks County judge Friday that she wished she would have died instead of her 1-year-old granddaughter who she gave a fatal dose of morphine to ease the baby’s teething pain in 2009.
“I often wish I could trade places with her and that everything would be all right,” Penny S. Kochel said before she was sentenced by President Judge Paul M. Yatron to two to 23 months in the county jail for killing her 1-year-old granddaughter on May 8, 2009.
Kochel of the first block of Jay Bee Drive, Heidelberg Township, pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of Leanna E. McEntee of Levittown, Bucks County.
Kochel said not a day goes by that she does not think of her granddaughter who she was baby-sitting for while the baby’s parents, Colleen R. Long and her husband, Matthew N. McEntee, went on weekend vacation.
“Leanna was my beautiful angel,” Kochel said during the sentencing. “I would never have done anything to her that I thought would hurt or kill her.”
But Kochel said she accepts responsibility.
“I loved Leanna as much as anything in the world,” Kochel said.
Kochel’s lawyer, James M. Polyak, said Kochel had morphine in her home because she was helping to care for her brother, Norman M. Anderson Jr. of Robesonia. Anderson died two weeks after Leanna.
Yatron said the case is tragic.
“I offer my sincerest condolences for your loss,” Yatron said to the baby’s family. “Obviously, there was no intention to hurt the child.”
It looks like Grammy night might be very good for Lorde and Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.

Heidi Montag And Spencer Pratt Blowed Through $10 Million
They should have known reality TV doesn’t last forever. Heidi needed to take the money she spent on plastic surgery and put it in a trust fund.
According to TV Guide:
Former The Hills stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt say they’re nearly broke after blowing through $10 million.
“We were immature and we got caught up,” Pratt tells In Touch. “Every time we’d go out to eat, we’d order $4,000 bottles of wine. Heidi was going to the mall and dropping $20,000 to $30,000 a day. We thought we were Jay Z and Beyonce.”
In 2011, the couple came close to filing for bankruptcy after Montag spent $30,000 on plastic surgery the year prior.
Their financial woes will be outlined in the upcoming E! special After Shock: Heidi & Spencer, which premieres Monday, Dec. 9. Montag tells In Touch she feels “like a different person” with her more frugal spending habits now that the paychecks have stopped coming in.
Dropping $20,000 at the mall? Yea, she was out of touch with reality.
Prepare the montage music.

Orlando was reportedly spotted flirting with his Lord of the Rings co-star Liv Tyler recently. The two met up at an after party on the premiere night of Broadway play Waiting for Godot last month.
RadarOnline reports a source told Star magazine, “When they got behind closed doors, they were playfully tickling, gazing into each other’s eyes and holding hands.”
The insider added, “Miranda and Orlando are trying not to cause a scene with other people out of respect for each other.”

Now that Anna Kournikova‘s retired, there’s not enough hot chicks playing tennis out there any more these days, which means it’s much harder to satisfy my thing for sweaty chicks in short skirts grunting loudly. Luckily though, I found these pictures of Malin Akerman filming a few tennis scenes for her show Trophy Wife. Granted, there’s no audio of her grunting to go along with it, but I should be able to add that part in myself.

Because I’m what those in the psychiatrist community would call an “enabler,” here’s a video that noted troublemaker McKayla Maroney recently did for Adidas. But before you degenerates out there get too excited, just keep in mind that McKayla’s going to turn 18 in under a week (or December 9th for those of you counting at home) and move along until then. See? Who says I’m a bad influence?

School Strip Seaches Girl Without Parent’s Permission
How do you strip search a child without the parent’s permission?
According to WRCB:
The mother of a 5-year-old girl filed a lawsuit in November against Hamilton County Schools, saying her daughter was strip-searched by a school nurse without her knowledge.
Brandy Madden’s daughter was a student at Apison Elementary School when she was diagnosed with congenital herpes.
She was treated at a doctor’s office and given permission to return to school, after it was determined she was not contagious.
Madden says she was later shocked to learn the school nurse had been removing her daughter’s clothing, without her permission, to check for lesions.
Because of that, Madden is suing the school system, for all medical expenses past and future, and citing emotional distress and suffering, humiliation and embarrassment.
A response from the Hamilton County Board of Education, released to Channel 3 Wednesday, alleges that Madden’s daughter was “unable to self-toilet and was therefore dependent upon school officials to change her diaper.”
The response continues to state that “…this child had a diminished expectation of privacy such that any routine examination that school officials may have conducted during the course of routine diaper changing would not have violated any clearly established rights of the child…”The lawsuit status is pending.
She’s 5-years-old with herpes…dayum. Do you think the school was out of line?
The beloved world leader was played by a long list of respected actors.
Since you guys liked her so much the last time, here’s another great photoshoot from French hottie Deborah Mace. Only this time she’s modeling lingerie instead of bikinis. I always appreciate it when models show how versatile they can be. But if Deborah wants a real challenge, let’s see how she looks in a set of bedsheets, or better yet, a handbra made out of a pair of dirty blogger mitts. I’m ready whenever she is.

These famous couples seem to be onto something.
Deborra-Lee Furness and Ava, 8, walked together to school on Tuesday (December 3). Their dog also joined them on the New York City streets.
Later that night Deborra-Lee and Hugh Jackman attended the David Lynch Foundation Presents: Change Begins Within Benefit Gala. At the event the couple talked about family bonding with children Ava and Oscar through meditation.
Jackman recalled, “I said [to one our our teachers] what do we do with the kids if we want to mediate? He said, ‘Just be quiet in the house and tell the kids they don’t have to mediate’ — they were young. But say, ‘There’s no TV, there’s no talking, you can read, do whatever you want.’ And what we found is we would meditate.”
“They just sit in a room with us,” Furness explained. “They loved it . . . They would be upset when the time ended. They sit there, they’d draw. They knew that they had to be quiet, but it made us all be together without using words or anything. But energetically we were all together sitting comfortably in our truth which is what this meditation is.”
Jackman added, “We got used to a quiet time together in the house. Now they’re sort of naturally getting into it. Meditation has changed our lives.”

I don’t know what kind of shenanigans Imogen Thomas here is trying to pull, but everybody knows that when you’re going to an event called the “UK Lingerie Awards,” you’re supposed to show up in lingerie. You know, like Georgia Salpa did. So c’mon Imogen, it’s not the “UK Tight Dress Awards.” Although, can somebody let me know when that one is? I want to make sure I mark my calendar so I don’t miss it.

It is full blown tailgating season, and home entertaining season. When these collide, I like to have things that work well for both. Pickles work really well for tailgating (and homegating).

Name: Vivian Lake Bundchen Brady
Date of Birth: December 5, 2012
Parents: Tom Brady & Gisele Bündchen
Siblings: Benjamin, 3 & John, 6
♥ Vivian was born at home in Boston
♥ Despite increasing speculation that she was expecting, Gisele never confirmed her pregnancy but rather let her growing baby bump do the talking. She eventually bared her burgeoning belly for all to see in a leopard-print bikini in November
♥ Her father is New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady
♥ Her mother is a strong advocate for breastfeeding, saying: ” Some people here (in the US) think they don’t have to breastfeed, and I think ‘Are you going to give chemical food to your child when they are so little?’ I think there should be a worldwide law, in my opinion, that mothers should breastfeed their babies for six months.”
“We feel so lucky to have been able to experience the miracle of birth once again and are forever grateful for the opportunity to be the parents of another little angel. She is healthy and full of life. Thank you all for your support and well wishes. We wish you and your families many blessings.” – mama Gisele on the birth of her second child.
‘’It feels good. ’Whatever we would have had, I would have been happy. We’ve got two beautiful boys, now a girl. It’s great.’’ – papa Tom on the birth of his first daughter.
“I’m in trouble…she’s a beautiful little girl. “I grew up in a house with three sisters. I think it’s great for my boys to have a girl in the house.” - Tom on his baby girl.
