Heche: I'm a Good Mommy!
As the Anne Heche/Coley Laffoon divorce continues to heat up, Heche responded to accusations from her soon-to-be ex-husband that she's a bad mom. Heche is seeking full-custody of their son, Homer, claiming that the unfortunately-named kid has a great relationship with the cast and crew of her TV show, "Men in Trees," and that Laffoon was a less-than-stellar parent. Claims Heche, when her hubby would show up to take Homer home, the boy "cried and screamed and wrapped his arms around my neck, and screamed, 'I wanna stay with mommy." The wacky pair, who filed for divorce in February, have a mediation hearing scheduled for June 5.
