Seth Rogen's personal plea for Alzheimer's awareness

Posted by Rachel Raczka February 27, 2014 10:16 AM

Funny guy Seth Rogen took on a serious topic before a Senate committee on Wednesday. The 31-year-old "Knocked Up" star opened up about his wife Lauren Miller's mother's early-in-life Alzheimer's disease diagnosis and his family's personal battle with the experience.

"After forgetting who she and her loved ones were, my mother-in-law, a teacher for 35 years, then forgot how to speak, feed herself, dress herself, and go to the bathroom herself, all by the age of 60," Rogen revealed. "Lauren's father and a team of caregivers dedicate their lives to letting my mother-in-law be as comfortable as she can be. They would love to do more, but can't because as you've heard, unlike any of the other top 10 causes of death in America, there is no way to prevent, cure, or even slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease."

Ireland Baldwin has new ink. Of underwear.

She posted this photo on Instagram, writing "zzzzzzzzz"

It's a bra tat, complete with straps and lacy bow. And it sits below a flower tattoo she previously had done. The 18-year-old aspiring model and daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger certainly has people talking.

One follower writes, "This bra tattoo is horrible please stop with ugly tattoos ur gorgeous n perfect the way u are u don't need ink." Another follower writes, "Your tattoos are beautiful, and I'm guessing they have meaning to you, so don't pay attention to these Negative Nancy's."

Ireland's response to those who don't like her tat? She tweeted this:

And the bra tat pic isn't the only buzz-worthy Instagram shot Baldwin has posted this week. Taking a move straight from the Kim Kardashian playbook, Baldwin posted this belfie (a selfie featuring one's bottom), writing only "#2014"

Barbara Walters says Woody Allen is a 'loving caring father,' Internet explodes

Posted by Rachel Raczka February 4, 2014 09:42 AM

"The View" host Barbara Walters ruffled feathers Monday when she defended Woody Allen, despite the allegations that he molested adopted daughter Dylan Farrow when she was seven years old.

In case you're just tuning into the Internet, let us bring you up to speed:
The accusations came back into light recently following a tweet from Farrow's 26-year-old brother, Ronan, following Allen's acceptance of the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award at the Golden Globes on Jan. 12.

This was followed by an open letter in the New York Times penned by Dylan that detailed the claims that the 78-year-old Oscar winner sexually assaulted her as a child. Allen denied the claims and his lawyer released a statement obtained by CNN on Monday, stating the accusations were "engineered by a vengeful lover" and "fully vetted and rejected by independent authorities."

The 28-year-old's mother and Allen's ex, Mia Farrow, and Ronan both have publicly shown their support for her claims.

The allegations were first brought into light by Vanity Fair in 1992, coinciding with the height of Allen and Farrow's falling out following the reveal that he had an affair with her adopted 20-year-old daughter, Soon-Yi Previn. Allen and Previn subsequently wed and currently have two daughters, Bechet Dumaine, 14, and Manzie Tio, 13.

The topic was naturally up for discussion on Monday's episode of "The View," and Walters spoke up for her friend, stating: "I have rarely seen a father as sensitive, as loving and as caring as Woody is and [his wife] Soon-Yi to [their] two girls. I don't know about Dylan. I can only tell you what I have seen now ... that it's a good marriage and that he is a loving, caring father. That has to be said."

Walters's co-hosts, Sherri Shepard and Jenny McCarthy, weren't ready to agree.

"Barbara, when you say, 'I'm speaking from what I've seen,' there are so many things that go on behind closed doors. We also know that he was with Soon-Yi when she was very young," said Shepard. "You've also got a man who's got a track record. He liked younger women."

"The fact that he likes 'younger women,' that has nothing to do with [it]," replied Walters.

Shepard reminded Walters that 17 is "not of age," but the 84-year-old would not have it.

McCarthy took a less heated approach to the debate, adding that Farrow had "nothing to gain" by coming forward with her allegations; to which Walters responded, "She's doing it now because he's up for an [Academy Award]. And so the question is: Does your personal life interfere with the awards that you may get?"

Needless to say, Walters's comments aren't too popular on Twitter.
