Sometimes it’s nice to take a break from celebrities and look at an animal photo. This is a twelve pound baby pygmy hippo born in the Miami zoo. At least in the zoo, these animals don’t get slaughtered by poachers like they do in the Congo. Apparently pygmy hippos are rare compared to the big river hippos and the zoo is very excited. You don’t often get to see a hippo the size of a Prada bag.

    The phrase “so ugly it’s cute” applies to this newborn. Congratulations to mom and baby!

    Unless that f**kin’ hippo has been fondled by an A-lister Scientologist, has two mommies who were photographed roughing up Bristol Palin outside a lipstick lesbian club, or was caught on Sunset in a stolen Porsche with Lindsay Lohan and a bag full of crack, I don’t give a s**t.

    Animals are more monogamous than these little low-moral GollyWoodites, such as Paris, Britney, Lindsey, Audrina, …..endless list.

  • Blind Item: America’s Sweetheart Battling A Drug Addiction?


    One of America’s Sweethearts is battling a serious drug addiction- not hers, but her best friend’s. Through the years these two have been stuck to one another like white on rice and her fame rubbed off on her pal. They’ve been roomies, have worked together on set, and even launched a business venture together. But all that success has come with a price. After years of being sober, the less famous friend has fallen HARD off the wagon and our gal doesn’t know what to do. She’s hosted an intervention, hired an addiction specialist, and even threatened to end the friendship, but nothing seems to work. What’s a girl to do?
