Papa Joe Simpson Got A WeHo Makeover As The Young Gold Digging Boyfriend Surfaces

Joe Simpson stepped out in Los Angeles on Thursday sporting a look that is a far cry from his usual ill-fitting suit and tie or slacks and and sport coat dad-apparel of yesteryear.  That HAIR though, you guys.

In the photos, taken by TMZ, Papa Joe rocks the shit out of a fitted yellow sweater and black skinny jeans, with matching bright yellow kicks. Now it’s Daddy-Apparel!  Go on, Boo.

This makeover comes approximately a month after divorce papers were filed by Tina Simpson, and only weeks after reports that Simpson has recently come out as gay to his soon-to-be-ex-wife and daughters, Jessica and Ashlee. Gay, and involved with a paramour blabber-mouth gold digger more than 30 years his junior.

C L I C H E`

Early Saturday, Radar Online disclosed the identity of said alleged paramour.

Reports surfaced that the man in question is a 21-year-old aspiring “model” named Bryce Chandler Hill. The “anonymous source” that came forward, told Radar Online that Chandler Hill has been heard bragging throughout West Hollywood about his on/off relationship with Papa Joe, that has lasted for over a year. Sources say the two met through T.J. Espinoza, who is a close friend of Jessica and Ashlee.

Ugh. Gold digging cliche`…

Although Bryce Chandler Hill tweeted Friday night that the story is “simply not true,” assorted twitter interactions between he and Joe Simpson himself that have surfaced aren’t doing much to support his claims.

If high school ever taught us anything, it’s that if two people are interacting with one another — then yeah, they’re probably fucking.  Since Papa Joe won’t tweet me back, I guess only time will tell.

One more thing: PLEASE tell us everyone kissed and made up and that Ken Paves did Papa Joe’s highlights!!

Mel Gibson and Lance Armstrong: Social Outcasts

THESE two.

 

What happens to high profile friendships when careers implode? Two very different celebrities can answer that.

Mel Gibson has had several years to process his spectacular fall from grace.

Shortly after the Mad Max star’s darker side was revealed, Jodi Foster was one of the few entertainers to stand by Gibson. In September of 2010 Foster told More Magazine about Gibson:

“…he is easiest, nicest person I’ve ever worked with  — AND –  I will love this man for the rest of my life — AND — When you love a friend, you don’t abandon them when they are struggling — AND — I hope I can help him get through this dark moment.”

It is interesting to note that Gibson’s abusive tirade came right before the release of  The Beaver, a film directed by Foster. So Jodi’s apology tour was in part an attempt to salvage her own career prospects.

Madeleine Stowe from “Revenge”

So I was surprised to learn during an interview with Katie Couric, Revenge star Madeline Stowe agreed to talk about Gibson. In reference to the DUI arrest, misogynistic and anti Semitic comments and abusive threats to the mother of his child (I’m sure I missed something) Stowe states:

It’s not for me to assess what has been going on in his heart and in his mind…

Stowe, who co starred with Gibson in We Were Soldiers (2002) talks about the charity work that he and his ex-wife do through their foundation and goes on to say:

I can only tell you the Mel that I know, and that Mel is the same one other people [who] have worked with him know. He was probably one of the most wonderful people on the set ever, that you could ever imagine. He has been a very good friend to me. He is very tortured by what’s going on. I do not believe he’s an anti-Semite in my heart of hearts. I think that he’s a very complex, complex, deep individual, and I have remained his friend and I hope the best for him. He’s a real creative force, he’s a special man.”

I’ll just leave that there and move on to Lance Armstrong, whose scandal is fresh out the oven.
Earlier this month, after years of speculation about doping, Armstrong was banned from any sporting event governed by the World Anti Doping Agency and dropped by Nike. The 41-year old cyclist resigned from the chairmanship of his Livestrong charity but vowed to continue his work behind the scenes.
Arriving through a private entrance, Armstrong spoke at the cancer charity’s annual fundraiser last week. Many celebrities also skipped the normally packed red carpet. Long time Armstrong brah and fellow Austin resident Matthew McConaughey was a no-show entirely.
Sean Penn, ever the blowhard, rebel had this to say:
Let’s pause so I can suck my teeth and roll my eyes. I’m all for sticking around through thick and thin but where do you draw the line?
If it doesn’t involve you personally, exactly what kind of bad behavior would make you ditch a friend?

Joumana Kidd, NBA Ex-Wife Charges of Alcholism and Abuse

Awwwww…now go get Daddy’s phone for Mommy!

Joumana Kidd, ex-wife of perennial NBA all-star Jason Kidd is talking to Metropolis Nights magazine about their tumultuous marriage.

Divorced 5 years ago, the former broadcaster for the TV entertainment news program Extra says her career suffered while trying to juggle the demands of marriage and motherhood. She also “comes clean” about his alcoholism, physical abuse on his part and using their child to pocket dear old Dad’s phone from his locker so that she could do a reconnaissance mission. Illicit texts and numbers from other women in hand, Joumana berated her unfaithful husband from court side seats.

Lest we think she learned something from this toxic relationship Joumana says:

It was blown up into something way bigger than it was. It was just his lawyers trying to paint a picture of me crossing boundaries and they did a good job of it. But it was far from the truth. And, it wasn’t as dramatic and amazing as they made it sound, although I kind of wish it was.

Umm, OK.

Jason, who pled guilty to a domestic assault charge from a 2001 incident between the two, currently plays for the NY Knicks. Married to Porscha Coleman (Russell Simmon’s ex) he was last in the news after being arrested  for a DUI charge in the Hamptons in July. Not surprisingly, his management had no comment about this ancient history.

“Researching” this story (feel free to laugh, I am) I read back issues of Metropolis and apparently chatty sports wives and exes are their specialty.

The August issue features retired NFL running back Tiki Barber’s second wife. The one he courted (I keep it clean, HI GRANDMA!) while his first wife, already mother to two young sons, was 8 months pregnant with twins.

Don’t worry, all is well with the former Today intern, who met Barber while he was a broadcaster for the show.

To sum it up she LOVES:

Being a stepmother!

Quiet nights at home!

The little things, like notes left on her pillow!

And has NO desire for the spotlight/fame/reality show.

Feel free to file under who cares but first give the over/under of this blessed union.

A begrudging thanks to The NY Daily News for making me aware of this magazine’s existence.
