Is Tori Baskin' in 31 Flavors of Bacteria?


Why is Baskin-Robbins trotting out Tori Spelling to push its new line of soft-serve ice cream on other pregnant women when soft-serve is a known taboo for preggo women?

Several sources in the know -- including one pregnant OB/GYN -- tell TMZ that there are "definite" health risks associated with soft-serve ice cream for expectant moms because of Listeria bacteria. Softie machines can be studded with bacteria that can cause all kinds of issues for newborns -- in fact, Down Under, it's pretty much forbidden for preggo women.

Tori Spelling: Click to watchB-R tells TMZ in a statement, "Our Soft Serve products are continuously monitored by our suppliers, and our pasteurization process is state inspected and certified on a regular basis. The only way Listeria, which has been found in a variety of raw foods, can be found in soft serve would be through improper pasteurization."

The party pictures were taken by a very inexperienced and untalented photographer. The comments that went with the pictures were repetitive and boring. Of course these kids are going to blow off some steam after a season likethey just went through. Good for them.I wish I was young enough to do that myself. And, dont think for a minute that you will never hear from David A. or the other top 3 contestant. They will ALL have wonderful careers in music.

Simmon, how dare you call David A too young to be American Idol? Simmon, how dare you say David C should win because he has to work to get out a good song and is a bartyender & he should win and David A sings natural but is too young to be American Idol. How dare you say such a thing??
David A is a romantic singer along side the best in the world. David C bombed terribly with all 3 last songs. David A sang like a Natural singer along side, Neil Diamond, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra to name a few in the older back when days of romantic singers.
David A? Don't give up. You should have won.THIS AMERICAN IDOL WAS SURELY FIXED. I WILL NEVER, AND I MEAN NEVER WATCH THIS SHOW AGAIN.
DAVID A LOST BY 12000? BULL! THIS WAS FIXED.
DAVID A? YOU ARE A STAR *****

David A. should have won. He is 17, with great talent. I must say all his performances were much better than Cook. David Cook sang and it all sounded alike. Nothing special. After all the great reviews that David A reciieved from the judges, Yes, America got it wrong. He is still a definite winner in my book. I will wait for his CD, cant wait to hear it!

yeah you're right. David A should've won with all the pushing that AI did for him to win. i mean, who else got to have a bunch of girls come on stage and give them hugs and whatever else? you say David Cook's songs all sounded the same, well no doubt David A's song were all the same. he uses the same tone of voice and always squints his eyes when he sings. not to mention he was almost just like Jason in that he sang very dull boring songs. but i guess if you're into that kind of thing. and another thing, who cares if he's 17? that just means he's that much more inexperienced and immature. and when did David A turn songs around and make them his own. David Cook had a knack for that and was unpredictable. he knows how to make a good performance. i used to like David A in the beginning, but he just got old way too fast. he can only do one kind of song style.

Simmon how dare you call David A too young to be american idol? Simmon how dare you say David C has to work to get out a good song, he's a bartender and should win. and David A sings natural, his voice is natural but he's too young and should not be american idol..How dare you say such a thing??
David A is a romantic singer along side the best in the world. David C bombed terribly with all 3 last songs. David A sang like a Natural singer along side, Neil Diamond, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra to name a few in the older back when days of romantic singers. Their is too much bad singing for kids and adults to hear. Im talking learics. David A is natural, innocent and somthing for the young today and the older as he grows. David A is what this worl needs. People should stop with the insulting him and calling him a looser. He's far from a looser. I beleive the so called fixed votes, should be ashamed themselves. David A? your the best, you are a STAR***** SHER

At first I was sooooo upset David A. didn't win Idol. But then I remembered that the "winner" is tied to Idol for a period of time whereas the runner up is able to sign with whom ever they please. Don't get me wrong, David C. was very good but just not quite as good. I HOPE someone great grabs David A. and he has a wonderful career. He may not have bragging rights but those of us that REALLY know, know who's best and that's DAVID A. all the way!

David Cook is the real winner here. He is far more suited for this and the most talented. D. Archuletta sings well but he is not idol material, way too young. just like Jordan Sparks,,her vocal cords not even matured yet and D. Archuletta has had problems with his!! Come on AMerica...the writing is on the wall,they both are talented but COOK is the real deal.

David Cook won despite being panned by the judges, (for just that one performance, mind you), because those of us who followed him throughout were won over by his genuine talent and versitility. David A. was simply boring, and completely lacking in testosterone. Talented, sure, but not compelling or even interesting. And he didn't win by 12 thousand SHER, he won by 12 million! Grow up, stop being a sore loser, and learn how to spell.

I see we have the Winney Bitches aboard. David A signed a contract with Idol, so did David C , Little Guy will be alright when he gets some hair ,you know where, then his voice will mature ,like becoming lower.The Little Guy has to get out of the choir back in Utah, they did not tell you that . You liyyle girls will grow up and learn something about Marketing,Advertising and signing contracts.. Do you really think David A"s Dad will let him get away before he gets the KIDS Money?Just like Brits and so many others.........
