After a headline-capturing divorce, “Gossip Girl” star Kelly Rutherford and her ex-husband, German businessman Daniel Giersch, who was deported one year ago, were granted joint custody of their children, 6-year-old Hermes and 3-year-old Helena. But because Kelly’s ex can’t return to the United States, the judge ruled that the children would be sent to live in France with their father— away from their mother, their friends and the home they’ve known since birth.
Caroline Fina, a friend of Kelly’s, just launched a petition on Change.org to help bring her friends’ kids home to the US after the family was torn apart by what some have called “one of the worst custody decisions ever.”
Says Caroline: “I want you to know that Kelly is not your average mother. She is the mom who sews the Spiderman mask back together when it rips, the mom who has lollipops in her purse at all times just in case she comes across a child crying, at school, at the airport, anywhere. She is the mom who will eat the crazy-looking birthday cake her kids made for her, just because it’s made of love. Kelly is a caring and generous friend, and most importantly, a truly exceptional mother. To see her now, separated from Hermes and Helena, enduring the worst possible agony a mother can experience, pushes me to reach out for help.”

Is there anything Blake Lively can’t do?!
Blake is thrilled to be a part of the fragrance’s upcoming campaign, stating that, ”It is a pleasure to collaborate with Frida Giannini. I admire the qualities of the Gucci Première woman and feel honored to represent the fragrance.”
Lively embodies Hollywood glamour as she’s seen in the commercial dressed in a body-hugging sparkly gold gown! Gorgeous!
Like mother like daughter!
Back in February, Blake Lively attended Godiva’s “The Sweetest Story Ever Told Sweepstakes” event wearing separate pieces from Valentino and shoes by Christian Louboutin.
Last night (May 14), her mother on their hit TV show “Gossip Girl,” Kelly Rutherford wore a similar version of the same Valentino dress at Birchbox’s live viewing of the Gossip Girl finale at the Time Warner Center, paring it with a small clutch and nude pumps.
The question is… Who rocked it better?
The best part about these shoes, in my opinion, is their versatility. You can rock them “dressed down” with a pair of shorts or “dress up” a simple black suit.
Guys don’t always get to have as much fun as girls when it comes to fashion, so these are a great pair of shoes that will really make people go “wow!”
Male celebrity fans of Converse include Justin Bieber, Zac Efron, Adrian Grenier, and “Gossip Girl” star Chace Crawford and female celeb fans include Blake Lively, Natalie Portman, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba, Mila Kunis, and Miley Cyrus.
Talk show hosts Kelly Ripa (“Live with Kelly!”) and Anderson Cooper (“Anderson”) were all smiles at the New York screening of “BULLY,” which the dynamic duo co-hosted, at The Crosby Street Hotel. Also in the house (er, hotel): Kelly’s hot hubs Mark Consuelos, ”Gossip Girl” star Michelle Trachtenberg, designer Rachel Roy and TV personalities Rocsi Diaz, Carson Kressley.
“BULLY” is a Weinstein Company documentary that follows a group of harassed high school students who face bullying on a daily basis. It covers events during the 2009-2010 school year and follows students from Texas, Mississippi, Georgia, Iowa and Oklahoma, including the stories of Tyler Long and Ty Smalley, who committed suicide as a result of bullying.
