The Hollywood Sigh is back In the Powder Room! This week’s snarky celebrity gossip with a twist…
That Time Jason Bateman Passed Out Naked at a Spa
I had a thing for Jason Bateman when he was on The Hogan Family in the ’80s. Then he fell off the radar, made sweet love to a few addictions, kicked those bitches to the curb, and mounted a career resurrection. He came flooding back into my consciousness with the film This Is Where I Leave You, and I’ve harbored a renewed crush on him ever since.
That crush went into overdrive when he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and told the story of the time he passed out naked at a high-end spa near Beverly Hills. (I won’t lie—there were mental images, and I’m not sorry.) Jason hit the deck after soaking in a boiling hot tub, and woke up to seven paramedics in the room and three spa employees pouring water on his head.
Usually rambling stories by celebrities are a snooze fest, but now I want Jason to come over and tell me stories over dinner because PRICELESS.
Kendra Wilkinson Would Let Her Six-Year-Old Peep Her Playboy Pics
Former Girl Next Door Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett raised some eyebrows when she told E! News she was totally fine with her six-year-old son Hank Jr. getting an eyeful of her Playboy spread: “Little Hank’s already seen the nude magazines. He’s already seen them! He’s cool.”
“Of course I… let little Hank see my Playboy,” she admitted. “He sees me naked every day. I have no shame. We take baths together. We take showers together. If you hide something then it becomes more taboo.”
But Kendra was quick to clarify that she isn’t always nude while participating in such activities: “I do wear a bathing suit in the bath with him, but I don’t mind… changing in front of him,” she told E! News. “A body is a body; it’s not taboo anymore. I’m so glad we’re breaking through those walls.”
Can I be half on board with this one? Bodies are bodies: I subscribed to that with my own kids up to a certain age. (Save for the period of hypervigilance that occurred after pulling up a new pair of chonies in close quarters, and having a toddler reach out to try to pet the “doggie” between my legs. Lesson learned and bush-trimming regimen reinstated.) But it’s one thing to see a natural human body doing everyday things, and another to be exposed at a very young age to overtly sexualized images. There’s a reason we give our kids subscriptions to Highlights for Children and not yank mags.

John Boyega Visited a Children’s Hospital Dressed as Finn
Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ John Boyega is a ray of sunshine stuffed into a box of puppies sitting on top of a unicorn. At the behest of Daniel Bell, a five-year-old suffering from a brain tumor, he dressed as Finn and visited the London Royal Hospital last weekend to put smiles on little faces.
