Colorfully attired Matilda Ledger appears to be quite excited about shopping at J Crewe’s kid store in New York, but her mom Michelle Williams looks very irritated at the paparazzi who snapped her animated daughter. She gave him a very meaningful look behind Matilda’s back…

Celebrity Wife Swap usually makes the participants look like slightly misguided but well-meaning and likeable people at the end. That’s not what happened on this Tuesday’s episode featuring Mark McGrath and “Gangster’s Paradise” rapper Coolio. McGrath proved himself to be an overzealous, indulgent, but caring father. Coolio was exposed as a totally self-absorbed, incommunicative, posturing jerk. He was selfish, lazy, and seemed to care only about appearing macho and cool – and to hell with everyone else. His live-in girlfriend had two jobs and three kids and did ALL the work around the house. He never lifted a finger – or cracked a smile. This is a man who has six kids with 4 women and probably pays no attention to any of them. (At least one is in jail.) By the end of this episode Coolio had lost his girlfriend and most of his fans…(To think we used to LIKE him!) (Above: Coolio, ex-girlfriend Mimi, and her 3 kids)

James Franco made a fierce and lasting impression when he debuted as James Dean back in 2001, but has he lived up to his promise? Granted he’s expanded his repertoire – he’s been a graduate student, a published writer, a director of documentaries, a teacher. A real jack of all trades. But his acting career is somewhat disappointing – with the exception of Milk and 127 Hours (which we couldn’t bear to watch.) Now he’s starring in “Oz: the Great and Powerful” and it’s nothing to brag about. Can someone give James a decent script?

So sad to hear about Valerie Harper’s brain cancer. Back in the 1970’s she and Mary Tyler More were the independent young career women on TV that single girls looked up to. Valerie was such a hit on the Mary Tyler Moore show playing her outspoken best friend Rhoda, that she got a spin-off show of her own. Valerie’s Rhoda lived in New York where her sister played by Julie Kavner lived, and her parents also. Rhoda was a window decorator looking for love and many young women identified with her. Eventually she met the right guy and married him and the TV wedding was a huge deal – the biggest event of the year. We happened to be in New York that night and the streets were literally empty – the women were all home tearfully watching Rhoda. Valerie herself is just as down to earth and fun as Rhoda was.
