The Baldwin Report

Unreliable and second-hand gossip from around the world*

Pam Anderson and Kirstie Alley

It seems the ladies are playing the diva card big-time on the new season of Dancing with the Stars. Pam is demanding an almost-impossible-to-find Australian coconut water be stocked in her dressing room at all times. Meanwhile, Kirstie will not eat the catered food provided and is insisting that all her meals be organic. Aww, that’s sweet. They’re taking the word 'Stars' literally.

Nicki Minaj

Well it has been quite a year for the pop star-turned TV star-turned entrepreneur. She has had multiple chart-topping hits, she’s the newest judge on American Idol and she just released her own fragrance. Now the word on the street is that the curvaceous rapper is getting her own reality show. You’d think she’d be happy with all of these accomplishments in such a short time; but until she checks 'direct a feature film' and 'run for office' off her to-do list, she will not be satisfied.

Tom Cruise

The Mission Impossible actor recently opened up in an interview about now being allowed to visit his daughter. Ex-wife Katie Holmes currently has sole custody of the tot and apparently wants to keep it that way, as she doesn’t approve of certain aspects of Tom’s lifestyle. I could go into specifics, but I’m afraid to.

Foot Locker

An apparent joke that the NFL hired striped-shirted Foot Locker employees as their replacement refs in the wake of a series of terrible calls, became an actual suspicion. In response, Foot Locker issued a statement, denying the accusation and maintaining that all of their employees were accounted for during the weekend. That just seems like a waste of breath. Of course, the NFL did not use Foot Locker employees as replacement refs. Foot Locker workers would have made some decent calls.

*so don’t quote me.
