Overheard: Why is Kourtney's baby news?

Birth announcements typically bring out feelings of joy, but when you're a Kardashian ... it's more like a mixed bag.

Many of our commenters (although we'll note, not all) were unimpressed by the arrival of one Penelope Scotland Disick, and they weren't shy in saying so. Their frankness even startled other readers, like ciera, who plaintively inquired, "if you guys hate them so much and dont care, then why in the hell did u click on the link?"

Gene Simmons: I've never been drunk

KISS frontman Gene Simmons is many things, including bassist, reality star, songwriter and philanthropist.

The patriarch of A&E’s "Gene Simmons’ Family Jewels" is also arguably one of the most iconic rock stars of his generation (and by that I mean if you were born in the '70s), and, unlike some other high-profile artists, he’s a pretty shrewd businessman to boot.
