Winds could also gust as high as 45 to 50 m.p.h. resulting in severe blowing and drifting snow.last_img read more

There’s a whole “Lota’’ retro love in this bayside home

first_imgThe windows in the open plan living area offers views.The heart, however, is the kitchen. It’s an open-plan space that breathes life into the lounge and dining spaces.“It’s all solid timber,” Ms Holden said. “These new kitchens, you put water on them and they melt, but that’s just such a solid kitchen — you just couldn’t build cupboards like that nowadays.”The kitchen is also an archive, with a surprise waiting for the new owners in the cabinetry. “Inside the pantry door, you’ve got the kids’ height chart still there from the 1950s,” she said. “So it’s got this real historic feel to it — and it’s a home that the family just loved.”Ms Holden said there’s already been great response. The renovated Lota home.The home is being marketed through Haydn Meyer of Ray White Manly.It will be auctioned on-site Saturday, March 4, at 11am.

Pregnant Jamie Lynn Spears not much of a role model

first_imgJamie Lynn Spears, star of Nickelodeon’s “Zoey 101,” has succeeded in doing the impossible: She has upstaged her train wreck of a big sister, Britney Spears. The 16-year-old actress – widely perceived to be the “good” Spears sister, is at least three months pregnant. She and her mom have blabbed all about it to OK! Magazine. Once the baby is born, the teen will get a whopping $1 million from that magazine for an exclusive photo spread of her and the tot. Honestly, what planet does the Spears family live on? Britney’s endless travails, poor parenting and endless hunger for paparazzi attention is well documented. But her little sister had been a role model to millions of little girls who love her on “Zoey.” Bloggers are also weighing in: Defamer: “She’s continuing the proud family tradition of ill-advised pregnancies established by infant-fumbling, mothering-impaired older sister Britney.” Radar magazine: “The response? A comforting hug from her employer Nickelodeon, the cover of OK! magazine, and a portrayal of the events framed in the soft light of an after-school special.” Her mom Lynne, previously signed to write a book on parenting Britney and Jamie Lynn (the book has been postponed, indefinitely), said to OK!: “I didn’t believe it because Jamie Lynn’s always been so conscientious. She’s never late for her curfew. I was in shock. I mean, this is my 16-year-old baby.” Don’t you mean your $1 million baby? The father is Jamie Lynn’s 19-year-old boyfriend, Casey Aldridge. “It was a shock for both of us, so unexpected,” Jamie Lynn told OK!, “I was in complete and total shock and so was he.” Total shock? Didn’t Mama Spears ever have “the talk” with Jamie Lynn? Of course, this situation has every P.R. crisis expert slobbering to get quoted. I’ve decided to use one from Ronn Torossian, CEO of 5W Public Relations since it was forwarded to me by about 20 different people. “Frankly, I don’t see any `Spears Family Christmas Prime Time Specials’ being sold into syndication anytime soon,” said Torossian, who has repped Sean Combs, Snoop Dogg and Lil’ Kim. “If Michael made LaToya look like the normal Jackson, Britney might be the Spears’ with the better moral judgment … either way brands won’t see either family member as marketable for some time.” For more celebrity news, go to blogs.dailynews.com/hollywoodjoe and blogs.dailynews.com/outinhollywood160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Nickelodeon has released a statement in support of their very young star: “We respect Jamie Lynn’s decision to take responsibility in this sensitive and personal situation.” Her employer might be sympathetic, but there’s been an immediate groundswell of mostly negative reaction around cyberspace. Some people even see it as a major blow to education efforts to prevent teen pregnancy. “My 11-year-old daughter looks up to girls like Jamie Lynn and Miley Cyrus,” one Massachusetts woman wrote to People.com. “Thank goodness she still has Miley.” “QuicheLorraine” wrote on the A Socialite’s Life blog: “Rewarding a 16-year-old who is foolish enough to get knocked up with a $1 million baby photo contract is disgusting and I hope everyone boycotts OK Magazine.” last_img
