The Word: A new Cyrus baby

Disney must be so proud. Song, left and Cyrus.

When I first saw this photo and the news item that the goth man in the picture is going to be a dad, I was like, “Marilyn Manson’s demon seed passes on.” But it turns out it’s actually Miley Cyrus’ brother, Trace Cyrus, 22, who has become the baby daddy to the unborn child of Disney’s “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” star Brenda Song, 23. That is a lot of tattoos for ol’ Trace Cyrus, right?  But honestly, I’d probably act out that badly if Billy Ray Cyrus were my dad, too.

Oh, and one more thing: Cyrus apparently has a Hot Topic-inspired clothing line called “Southern Made, Hollywood Paid.” We do this to ourselves, America.

In Touch is in big trouble

Now that the new issue of In Touch — the tabloid that started the Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith split rumors — is actually out, let’s see what it had to say, shall we?

Honestly, it’s not much — just that Will walked in on Jada with her “HawthoRNe” co-star Marc Anthony. … Wait! What?!

Yes! They claim Will left crying after catching Marc and Jada together in their family home. Gettin’ jiggy with it, indeed.

For what it’s worth, everyone involved is totally denying everything, with the Smiths even getting their legal team to possibly take action against the magazine.

Smith was probably just sobbing from the shock of seeing Anthony naked. Kidding! Kind of! This is all so crazy, it must be dreamed up by the “HawthoRNe” PR team just to remind all of us it’s still on the air.

Catfights or no at memorial service?

Taylor Armstrong apparently invited her “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” co-stars to the private memorial for her estranged husband, Russell, yesterday in Hollywood, reports.  “A lot of thought and consideration went into Taylor’s decision to invite the entire cast. In the end, Taylor didn’t want to exclude anyone, and even though she doesn’t get along with all of them, Taylor wanted them there. The girls have been very supportive to her throughout this entire tragedy. Taylor needs her friends around her more than ever,” a source close to the situation said.

I hope the ladies can keep it together enough not to have a fight at the memorial service. But you know, that might just be asking a little too much from them.
