Girl fight: Octomom vs. Kristen Johnston

Left: Johnston, Right: Suleman

We can’t decide if we’re really, really grateful to not have been flying to L.A. this weekend or sad that we missed this show: On Saturday night, Nadya Suleman (aka Octomom) and actress Kristen Johnston (of “3rd Rock from the Sun”) found themselves on the same plane out of New York, and it wasn’t pretty.

While waiting for the delayed flight to take off, Johnston confronted Suleman about her crying octuplets. And then — according to a statement to TMZ from Suleman’s rep, who we suspect will be job-searching soon — came this delicious exchange between two C-list celebs who we would be afraid to share an armrest with:

Suleman: “How would you like me to keep eight 2-year-olds quiet?” (A good question, in theory.)

Johnston: “Get more help!” (A good answer, in reality.)

Suleman: “Why don’t you grow a baby and get a life!” (All good has left the building.)

No thanks, says Kristen Stewart

We give Kristen Stewart a lot of trouble around here for the obvious reasons (skinny, great clothes, dates Robert Pattinson). But even we wouldn’t have suggested she should play the role of Casey Anthony in any upcoming film — something plenty of others are, to her dismay. “Her people are really annoyed about the Casey Anthony comparisons,” a source tells UsMagazine.com. “She would never for no amount of money portray that girl. It’s grossing her out.”

Kristen, we owe you this: The resemblance is a stretch at best, and your hair has been looking really nice lately.

This weekend in babies

This weekend was a big one in the world of pretty babies: Kate Hudson and fiance Matt Bellamy welcomed a boy on Saturday night, while David and Victoria Beckham added a baby girl to their family on Sunday morning.
