, the 7-month-old daughter of
Anna Nicole Smith
, left her Bahamas birthplace yesterday in the arms of her DNA-designated daddy,
. A few hours later, father and child touched down in Louisville, Ky., where Birkhead and Anna Nicole first met a few years ago at a Kentucky Derby party.
The small jet carrying Anna Nicole's baby lifted off at 9:52 a.m. (Do you remember where you were?)
Kentucky native Birkhead, 34, plans to introduce his offspring to her new family, but doesn't seem to think he'll stay there. "This is one pit stop," he said, according to the Associated Press.
Birkhead got permission from a Bahamian judge last week to take his daughter out of the country after a DNA test established that he really is the dad. Former Anna Nicole bf Howard K. Smith had been named on the birth certificate as the father, but the Bahamas government has issued a new document with the correct info. And so all is right with the world.
Supermodel Kate Moss, whose name has decorated so many gossip columns following her relationship with drug-plagued rocker Pete Doherty, has launched a new clothing line for British fashion retailer Topshop.
Among the Moss designs are jeans, shirts and dresses.
A sneak preview in London on Monday drew hundreds of shoppers - so many that Topshop admitted them in 20-minute shifts to help keep order.
Call it the Bruce Triangle - a mysterious zone where animosity between ex-spouses simply drops off the map without explanation.
The points of this triangle are Bruce Willis, his ex-wife Demi Moore and her current spouse, Ashton Kutcher.
The three are such good buds that they share vacations, Willis reveals in Vanity Fair's June edition.
"It's hard to understand, but we go on holidays together," says the 52-year-old action film hero, who has three daughters with Moore. "We still raise our kids together - we still have that bond."
"Demi is the mother of my children and Ashton is the stepfather of my children," Willis tells VF. "I'm thrilled that Ashton turned out to be such a great guy. I love Demi, and I know she loves me." Presumably in a different way than she used to.
When he's not hanging with the ex, Willis has a pretty good screen career going on. He's back for another turn as former cop John McClane in Live Free or Die Hard, opening June 27. The flick is the fourth in the series that began with Die Hard in '88.
Some folks watch TV in bed, but
TV in bed. DeGeneres hurt her back jumping down from a three-foot wall over the weekend, reports celeb Web site TMZ.com. So Ellen is presiding over her daytime TV show from a hospital bed set up in the middle of the stage, with a nurse sitting nearby and a twin bed for guests.
Yesterday, American Idol host Ryan Seacrest was in the guest bed. "This is a first for me, to be in bed with you," he quipped, drawing laughs from the audience. "Well, it's a first for me in a while, too," DeGeneres replied.
Let the bidding begin
plan to auction off the worldly goods of her late hub,
, who killed himself in 1994.
People.com reports that the blond singer says Cobain's stuff has been valued at $40 mil. Three billionaires have expressed interest in acquiring the whole, Love says.
Kurt and Court married in '92 and had a daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, now 14.
is making a pet of the dog that bit him.
The diminutive actor is bringing out his own brand of lemon-flavored liqueur, the very concoction that caused him an embarrassing moment on The View last fall.
DeVito, 62, looked a little worse for wear and sounded a little fuzzy-tongued during a guest appearance on the late-morning gabfest in November. He blamed it on a night out with George Clooney. "I knew it was the last seven limoncellos that was going to get me," DeVito said on the show.
DeVito's new product, a 60-proof liqueur called Danny DeVito's Premium Limoncello, debuted Monday at the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America Annual Convention in Orlando, Fla.
Backing from Bono
Singer and social warrior
is lending the moral cred of his feed-the-world efforts to a global education initiative, backed by American legislators, including Sen.
Hillary Rodham Clinton
The Irish rocker, lead singer for U2, is getting behind attempts by Clinton and others to revive legislation that earmarks $10 billion for overseas schools, the Associated Press reports.
"I can't vote for any of them, but I'm thankful for what they're doing," Bono said from Ireland during a conference call with Clinton and Reps. Nita Lowey (D., N.Y.) and Spencer Bachus (R., Ala.). "This is why I'm a fan - and an annoying fan at times - of America."
Bono believes American action would put pressure on Europe to pony up. "The United States is just one-third of this," he said. "Your money will be certainly doubled up and I will be working on trebling it. I think we can guarantee the double."
Witness for the prosecution
After originally saying she wouldn't, Miss America,
, now has agreed to testify against suspects she helped arrest in an on-line sting.
Nelson, 20, working with police in Suffolk County, N.Y., posed as a teenager for online chats and set up meetings with her Internet acquaintances at a home where police arrested a total of 11 men.
The sting operation was taped for an episode of the television show America's Most Wanted.
Then a plainly irked Suffolk D.A. Thomas Spota, who had blasted the sting as "nothing more than a publicity stunt," raked Miss A for refusing to come back to New York to testify. Nelson urged the beauty queen to "meet her civic responsibility and testify as a witness to a crime." The Miss America Organization announced yesterday that Nelson is "fully cooperating with the law enforcement officials."
