Brian Austin Green Lawsuit Against Ex Vanessa Marcil Dismissed
The new daddy, who with wife Megan Fox confirmed on Wednesday that they'd welcomed son Noah Shannon, was dealt a legal blow after a Los Angeles Superior Court judge last Monday tossed out his lawsuit against ex-girlfriend Vanessa Marcil over purported unpaid loans.

Dr. Faye Snyder writes that she “would rather live under a bridge before I put my child in day care”.

CBS' THE TALK Sued by Author Claiming She Pitched Similar Motherhood Show
In 2006, Angela Wilder, an author and the ex-wife of Los Angeles Lakers Hall of Famer James Worthy, created a treatment called "The Mothers' Hood," which she registered with the WGA. The idea was to create a TV show for mothers to watch and feel like someone was listening to their day-to-day problems and issues.

Jacobs rejected her pitch, purportedly telling her that "stay-at-home mothers are a depressed group of people who would have absolutely no interest in watching a show about their own depressing lives," according to the suit.
