Well, this moment had to come SOME time: Julia Roberts has given birth to her boy-and-girl twins. Although she wasn't due to deliver until January, mother and babies (Phinnaeus and Hazel, if you care about such things) are fine. The non-celeb baby-maker/husband is fine. However, your humble Felt Up Blogette is ready to weep at the impending onslaught of baby porn on its way to her beloved Us Weekly and Star Magazine: baby gifts, baby room decortating, Julia-n-Danny pushing expensive baby strollers, intense post-pregnancy weight-loss scrutiny, blah blah blah-- it will be a total waste of precious trashazine space! Boo, hiss!

The other big non-news from the holiday weekend: Shelley Long may or may not have tried to commit suicide by ODing. WENN reports:

"Former Cheers star Shelley Long is back home after an alleged drug overdose, although her manager insists she merely took one pain pill too many to combat a severe back ache.

The 55-year-old actress' spokesman Martin Mickelson has denied American newspaper reports that the star took an overdose after battling depression following the break-up of her 22-year marriage.

The New York Post claimed Long was hospitalized on November 16. Mickelson insists she merely misjudged her pain medication and spent a night in hospital."

Hmmm. Regardless of her intentions, the sad, tragic outcome of all this is that she is still alive and ready to work. Yeah, sure, that sounds cold-hearted, but this is SHELLEY LONG we're talking about, people! Oh, don't look at me like that.
