Morgan’s Celebrity Gossip: breakups and baby names

Breakup of the week: Jef Holm and Emily Maynard

No! Say it isn’t so?! I have been following Jef and Emily obsessively, both on Twitter and Instagram, since the Bachlorette finale aired, and they seemed so happy! I mean, it was just October 2 when Jef Instagram-ed a picture of Emily with the caption, “never going to stop falling in love with this babe.” What happened?! When the news broke Tuesday, Emily’s statement featured the generic, “we are just at different points in our lives,” but apparently, the break-up was a little rockier than originally reported. According to, Jef was super critical of Emily’s role as a mother. Uh-oh. If you watched Emily’s season of the “Bachelorette,” then you know that no one gets away with criticizing her motherly abilities. Regardless of what went down, I have to say, I’m going to miss living vicariously through these two — I was really rooting for them!

“Wow” of the week: Uma Thurman’s daughter’s name

Uma Thurman just now announced the name of her daughter, born July 15, and after seeing the name, I can see why she was maybe hesitant to release it to the public. If you thought Pilot Inspecktor (Jason Lee’s son’s name) or Apple (Gweneth Paltrow’s daughter’s name) were bad, then you’ve got another thing coming. Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence Thurman-Busson is Uma’s baby’s name, and I wish I was kidding. If this celebrity news doesn’t get a “wow” out of you, then I don’t know what would. Apparently, each name has a significant meaning to Uma and her beau Arpad Busson, but it’s not about the names in particular that “wow” me, it’s how many there are. How is this girl going to get a driver’s license or a social security card without having to physically extend them to fit her name? I mean, I struggled learning to write and spell my full name in Kindergarten —  imagine the struggle this girl is going to face. Supposedly, Rosalind Arusha Arkadina Altalune Florence will be referred to on a everyday-basis as Luna. I don’t know where they got Luna from, and I don’t understand why they couldn’t just name her that in the first place to save her from all the trouble!
