    From which country did she adopt from? There are millions of starving kids in Africa and Vietnam, Phillipines etc. @shoosh - does it matter black/white?????

      Shoosh - 2012-03-14 21:19

      Does not matter to me one bit. Why do you ask Dmitri?

      Rita - 2012-03-15 00:02

      Dimitri there are hungry kids in Greece as well...Why MUST it always be a child from Africa or Vietnam???

      Shoosh - 2012-03-15 19:56

      @Rita it's a fashion item to have a black child amongst these pathetic people.

    What difference does it make if the baby is black, white, pink or blue, or who it is named after. At least she has provided a loving home for a small child who may just have become a number in an orphanage.

      Of course it makes a difference, that is like choosing between Tag Hauer and Breitling. Child adoption in Hollywood is a fashion statement. If she is clever she'll do like Brat and kie and get a whole range of fashionable attachments.

    Any thing for publicity, if Madonna could do it she may do it better. Oh, the damn Hollywood scene, if you not in the scene and you adopt media silence is your reward because either you can't afford a spin doctor or you have the decency to politely keep quiet and seek no publicity. I lift my hat to the silent adoptive parents, they are sincere.

    What a "fantastic" role model ...she did not think that there might be a baby from Benoni that urgently needs a Mommy ..
