Kid says Pam's a Partier, and He Ain't Kiddin'

11/29/2006 10:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Now it's his turn: Kid Rock's friends say that he had to end his marriage to Pam Anderson because he was sick and tired of taking care of their kids -- while Pam would stay out 'til all hours.

Yesterday, it emerged that Pam couldn't deal with her rocker hubby's anger and insecurity issues, including a public blow-up at a private screening of "Borat," as Page Six reported. Today, friends of Kid (real name: Bob Ritchie) tell the Post that once he moved to L.A. from Detroit to be with Pam, Bob found himself constantly at home with his son (and Pam's two boys with Tommy Lee), while Pam was out carousing almost every night.

Ritchie's friends also say that he suspected that there wasn't really a miscarriage, as Pam claims, because he had never heard from her or anyone else that she was pregnant. Whatever the case, say the rocker's pals, "Pamela doesn't have the money in the relationship – he does." Pam's reps say she is "a wonderful mother" and "absolutely had a miscarriage."

Oprah's Movin' On Up To an Even More Deluxe Apartment

The Queen of All Media, Oprah Winfrey, has ditched her fancy duplex apartment in Chicago's Water Tower Place and will be moving to a new 5,000-sq. ft. pad on what's called the richest block in Chicago on East Lake Shore Drive, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. It's got even better views of Lake Michigan than she had before. O's apartment building once housed the late John Candy, and Meg Ryan also stayed there while in town. It's just down the street from the famed Drake Hotel, and was on the market for $6.2 million. No word on what O actually paid.

Brit Ditches Paris Just Days Before Hosting Gig

Could there already be trouble in paradise? After a week or so of constant sisterhood (i.e., partying until the wee hours, shopping, displaying their, ahem, goods for all the world to see), Britney Spears and Paris Hilton have their first official rift: Brit has backed out of co-hosting the Billboard Music Awards with Paris without giving a reason, just days before the show.

The newly-BFF pair were scheduled to share hosting duties at the show, airing live next Monday night, but Us Weekly reports that Brit pulled out late yesterday afternoon. Hilton might still host the show solo, though just in case she doesn't, Fox has another comely young starlet waiting in the wings ... Brad Garrett.

Not A Typo – Lauer Names Son "Thijs"

So we rolled our eyes at "Apple" and raised our eyebrows at "Suri" and "Shiloh." But now "Thijs"? That, folks, is the newest addition to the Matt Lauer – Annette Roque brood, according to People. The baby (a son) was born yesterday morning, and weighed 7 lbs., 4 oz., and parents and child are doing well. The name is pronounced "Tice" and is a common Dutch name (Roque is Dutch). The baby will join brother Jack and sister Romy in the household, though the child is surely already girding himself for a lifetime of frustrating and humiliating trips to the DMV and the dentist's office.

Party Favors: TomKat Buys Cottage Across Pond ... Bobby Bacala Head-Butts Tony – For Real ... Wiggles Lead Singer May Quit ... Nick and Vanessa Getting Real (Estate)

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have snapped up a six-bedroom "cottage" in the Dormans Park community outside London, says Us Weekly (via Rush & Molloy), to go with their house in Beverly Hills and their mansion in Telluride ... Page Six reports that on the set of "The Sopranos," Steve Schirripa (Bobby Bacala) was in the middle of a scene with James "Tony Soprano" Gandolfini, in which Bobby is supposed to head-butt Tony, except Gandolfini forgot to move out of the way, getting himself a bloody nose in the process. The nose is unharmed. The final episodes unfurl next year. ... Crikey! The hugely popular Australian children's group, The Wiggles (yes, if you have kids, you know), is expected to announce that their lead singer "Yellow Wiggle" Greg Page will depart the band after undergoing a double hernia operation last December and experiencing health issues since ... Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo are house-hunting in L.A., says Life & Style (via MSNBC), and Minnillo is telling pals that she might quit her New York job to be out West with Nick.

No Avatar


Well gosh, now it's a-gettin' hostile. People reports Pam's pleas for an amicable divorce because her kids read. But I guess Bobby didn't get the message. Either that...or he doesn't read.

Crazy, Wild Stuff Today TMZ!

Vanessa needs to not quit her job, breakups happen at the drop of a hat in Hollywood not to mention the fact that she is Nick's obvious rebound relationship him going straight from Jessica to her with no breathing time in between, so if for any reason it doesn't work out there she is jobless on the other side of the country. She is not rich enough yet to be able to do this, women need to make sure they are financially secure before dropping everything including their jobs for any man!

Looks like someone finally got it through Britney's thick skull that hanging with paris is wrecking her comeback! Glad she had the sense to listen. BTW shouldn't the clock on hilton's 15 minutes be just about up?

How come Tom Cruise had the offical 30+ page spread of his wedding album pictures released in a non-US paper (in Hello Magazine, all pictures viewable on Is he making a statement towards the US media? Is it his way of showing his disapproval of the way he has been treated in the US press? Has the VF spread of Suri back-fired so much that he called it quits with the US papers? Next thing we know he might be deciding to go and live abroad with his family, where he still has some reputation left. I wouldn’t blame him if he did for the sake and sanity of his family and kids. With him buying that mansion near London, looks like the Cruises are well on their way to go spend so time in Europe away from the US media madness and paparazzi ..

That's why poor Pam is looking so haggard these days to much partying. Glad she wasn't or isn't pregnant anymore! Not good for the fetus all that booze!

Maybe it started when Paris left Britney asleep (passed out?) in her car Tuesday morning? Or maybe someone showed Britney her "Courtney Love makeover" look or the crotch shots. Or maybe she figured she better show up in Miami. Or maybe she's gone back to K-Fed.

Paris has behaved with some decorum lately. No one made Britney go out with her and no one made her go there without panties.

TMZ and Paris have a symbiotic relationship. I keep thinking Paris will grow up or TMZ will create and crown a new darling. But hey, why change whats working?

UK paparazzi is just as bad!

my opinion    

No way in the world will I believe that the reason is because "Britney finally came to her senses"! HA! That's a joke! Britney has NO senses! She proved that to the world over and over again.

Paris probably pointed out a hairy spot where Britney missed waxing and the Britster's now peeved so she pulled out of the awards show last minute.

I think it is totally disgusting that Britney and Paris would go out without underwear, and have their picture taken as a result. Talk about wanting to be in the public eye! Some people will sell their soles to satan for 15 mintues of fame. It's a shame that young gilrs look up to these nitwits and think that this kind of behaviour is acceptable. If my daughter went out with her friends with no underware and flashes it to the world, I wonder what would happen to her. Possibly attacked by some rapist!

In regards to TomKat, does Tom have full custody of Conner and Bella? I know he shares custody with Nicole but the kids seem to be with him a lot longer than 6 months? Hmmm..

Smart move for Britney....

Smart move for Kid....

Maybe Britney will actually STAY HOME and out of the spotlight for awhile and bond with her children. We can only hope as I think we have all seen MORE THAN ENOUGH (crotch shots, ass & boobs) of Britney for quite some time.

So what if the kid's name is Thijs? Has TMZ taken a racist stance against the Dutch? What would happen if Matt's wife was Nigerian? Would TMZ have made a joke about a name from that country? Goodness, learn from the Michael Richards thing, don't use a double standard.

I agree with number #11! The Paris,Britney, Lindsay dingdongs can get away with running around town without underwear on (don't know why they would want to) because they are always protected by bodyguards, have limos waiting for them etc. Young wanna be girls that see this and are dumb enough to copy them don't have the money these girls have for security so they leave themselves wide open for attack from potential rapists.

Brit? A skanky ass biatch!
