How Sandra Bullock's Big Reveal Stayed a Secret
Sources tell me that Sandra Bullock's friends were as shocked as the rest of us when they found out that the actress had adopted a little boy three months ago.
"No one had any idea Sandra had adopted a little boy," an insider tell me. "We are all in total shock, but now it all makes perfect sense. For the past few months, Sandra didn't let anyone into her house. Whenever she needed to get made up for red carpet events and awards, she would have her team meet her at a hotel suite she had booked. It seemed a little strange at the time, but now we know why."
However, the person who was most shocked about the adoption news was Julia Roberts, who expected to see her gorgeous face gracing the cover of PEOPLE magazine this week.
"The plan was for Julia Roberts to be on the cover as PEOPLE's Most Beautiful Person, however, after Sandra's representatives called the magazine offering this amazing story, they changed it in a second. Everything was so secretive that no one let Julia know about the switch," a magazine source laughed.
"Life & Style magazine, who are part of the same company that broke the Jesse James scandal wide open, were close to breaking the adoption story, reporting that Sandra was going to adopt. After Sandra and her team read that, they knew they needed to move fast and offered an exclusive to PEOPLE," explains a source.
And after months of having no control over what magazines wrote about her shattered life, I'm happy Sandra got to announce this one piece of good news on her own terms.
Why Mariah Wants Another Wedding
Are Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon planning to renew their wedding vows by walking down the aisle for the third time on April 30 because they want extra cash? That's what sources are telling me.
"Mariah is a brilliant business woman. Every time she gets married, she makes a fortune selling the pictures from her wedding," a friend of the couple tells me. "It's genius. It's not free publicity she's getting. Mariah is so smart she actually gets paid for promoting herself."
Because Mariah didn't make enough money from selling over 178 million albums alone! Still, can't knock a girl for hustling!
Nigel Barker's Birthday Present From Tyra Banks
At Nigel Barker's birthday party last night at the adorable Via Die Mille restaurant in New York City, Nigel told me his top model friend got him a new iPad for his birthday. That seemed like a fantastic gift -- until I found out what Nigel had given others on his birthday.
Nigel teamed up with Smiley Faces Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose mission it is to support reconstructive plastic surgery for the thousands of American children born each year with cleft lip. The famed photographer shot amazing images of children before and after surgery, displaying smiles that words simply can't describe. See for yourself at www.smileyfacesny.com
Did I ever tell you about the time Tyra sent me a picture of herself that she drew in a frame for my birthday. True story, I swear.
