Lamar Odom Falls Asleep in Court
Lamar Odom had trouble staying awake this morning in a New York courtroom. The LA Clippers player was in town to appear in court during a child custody hearing with his ex-girlfriend Liza Morales.
“Excuse me, are you OK?” a court officer asked Odom, according to The New York Post. Odom replied that he was fine, but just jetlagged.
The night before, Odom was spotted at New York restaurant with wife Khloe Kardashian, where they narrowly missed an awkward encounter with sister Kim’s ex husband Kris Humphries.
Odom and Morales are fighting over over child support, visitation rights and reality show appearances. Morales apparently is not a big fan of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and does not want her children to appear with Odom’s wife on the show.
Taylor Swift Slams Tina Fey
In a new Vanity Fair interview, Taylor Swift is slamming Tina Fey for jokes she made at the Golden Globes.
During the awards broadcast, co-hosts Fey and BFF Amy Poehler took a harmless jab at Swift and her many men, telling her to “stay away” from actor Michael J. Fox’s 23-year-old son.
In the Vanity Fair interview, Swift, 23, responded to Fey’s Golden Globes comments by reiterating a line told to her by Katie Couric that “there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help other women.”
Swift continued: “For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated – a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way – that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.”
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Respond to Swift Slam
Amy Poehler was quick to respond to Taylor Swift’s Vanity Fair slam with a slightly cheeky response. “Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff, ” said Poehler to The Hollywood Reporter.
Fey thinks Swift overreacted: “If anyone was going to get mad at us, I thought it would be James Cameron,” she said to Entertainment Tonight. “I did not see that one coming. It was a joke, it was a lighthearted joke.”
