Today in celebrity gossip: Michael Lohan has a new child, Barry Manilow is causing more trouble on Broadway, and Selena Gomez is doing great.
Well folks, there is officially another Lohan in this tattered, woebegone world. Lindsay Lohan's father Michael and his kind-of girlfriend Kate Major — the former tabloid reporter who also dated Jon Gosselin at one point — welcomed a baby into the world yesterday, a 7 pound 5 ounce ball of wonder named Landon Major Lohan. Major Lohan, this kid. Just total Lohan. He wasn't but three minutes out of the womb before he was checking into the Chateau Marmont and ordering cigarettes from room service, this kid. Major Lohan, that one. But yes, the child was born in Florida and is said to be doing well. He joins half-siblings Lindsay, Michael, Ali, and Cody, all of whom will, I'm sure, send him hastily signed greeting cards on the occasion of his high school graduation. Sigh. It's hard not be down about this poor kid. It's really hard not to. [Us Weekly]
God bless Page Six and its staff of 70-year-old ladies. How else would we know what a Kafkaesque nightmare the opening of Barry Manilow's Broadway show has been? We just wouldn't know! But thanks to them, we do. It seems that at Tuesday night's big opening, lots of "Fanilows" (that's the best they could do, I guess) totally annoyed traditional theatergoers. An old former theater critic from the Newark Star-Ledger got in a fight with one such Fanilow, who was standing up and whooping during each song. He just didn't get that this is what Fanilows do! He demanded that she be removed from the theater, but she wouldn't budge. Finally producer Clive Davis, himself something of a professional Fanilow, intervened and switched seats with the lady, so she could stand and cheer and do whatever else she wanted in peace. And that's how it's done at a Barry Manilow show. But seriously guys, this thing has been more fraught with problems than a space launch. This Barry Manilow show is the most complex, labor-intensive thing since the Chunnel. Man has this been a lot of work. [Page Six]
