Intro for July 25, 2013
Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem also welcomed a baby on Monday, reportedly a girl. They did not immediately release the name either, not necessarily because they’re still deciding but because it’s none of our goddamn business. Yesterday, a reader called Dena emailed to say that with all the focus on the Cambridges, Pene and Javier were robbed on baby coverage. But that’s what Pene and Javier would have wanted. Remember, when their son was born, it was a long time before they would even confirm that he was called Leo. And they certainly didn’t whore out her pregnancy or her labour or the first photos, or even any photos. So it’s not necessarily that they were “robbed” but more like they’ve actively avoided promoting themselves as parents, especially since their children don’t officially belong to the people. So…let’s just keep talking about William, Catherine, and George, OK?
Yours in gossip,
