Welcome to the Smart Set. Every morning we bring you the gossip coverage, filtered. Today: Levi has done it for the second time, billionaire Ron Perelman has for the eighth, and Jennifer Aniston has a secret family member.
Oh good grief. Levi Johnston, thick-necked rogue prince of Seward's Folly, will soon see the fruit of his seed once more. Yes, TMZ is reporting that the Drilla from Wasilla is expecting a child with his girlfriend, a 20-year-old teacher named Sunny Oglesby. ("Sunny Oglesby"? Is he filming a Bond movie?) Levi of course famously bred with Bristol Palin, daughter of midnight sun queen Sarah Palin, some four years ago, making him famous beyond his wildest dreams, going on to appear in Playgirl magazine, which apparently still exists and isn't just some lame kind of joke, and in a television commercial for nuts. (The joke in that commercial is about Levi using "protection" next time, and well, I guess he didn't follow his own pistachio commercial advice.) So now, with this news, we rejoice. And should start heading toward Alaska. The glorious prophecy now comes closer to being realized, as soon the trinity of the Sons of Levi, there is still one more to be conceived, will ascend the heights of Denali and, with their enchanted hockey sticks, rip a hole in the sky, exposing the brilliant light of the heavens, through which we will all crawl, out of this world and into deliverance. May Sunny Oglesby's loins bear this blessing well! The great work proceeds! [TMZ]
Speaking of blessed baby makers, Revlon head honcho Ron Perelman, 69, is welcoming his eighth child, from his fourth of five wives (he and Ellen Barkin never had a kid). He and his fifth wife, Anna Chapman (a psychiatrist, not the Russian spy lady) are using a surrogate for their second child together, which they expect in the summer. The baby will join its one-year-old brother Oscar, its half-sister Caleigh (born in the mid-'90s), half-sister Samantha (born c. 1990), and adult half-siblings Steven, Josh, Hope, and Faith. These kids' dad is a billionaire who counts free wheelin' actress Ellen Barkin as an ex-wife. This simply must be a movie someday. Perhaps written by little Oscar when he's a frustrated NYU film student. Come everyone, to the future! [Page Six]
