Celebrity relationship scandals have included stepmoms sleeping with their stepsons, husbands sleeping with their best friends' wives, and rappers shagging other rappers. The more things change, the more they stay the same, eh?
Apparently, Maureen McCormick, who played Marcia Brady on the iconic show The Brady Brunch, is upset that her (formerly) close friend, Eve Plumb, has cut her out of her life. McCormick has said that Plumb, who played Jan Brady on the show, is trying to distance herself from McCormick and The Brady Bunch. The kicker? McCormick believes it is over a joke she told that she and Plumb had a lesbian affair during the taping of the show. And according to McCormick, Plumb has gone so far as to refuse to appear on none-other-than The Oprah Winfrey show in a reunion with the other cast members.
You and me and baby makes three, or four in the case of the celeb super-star family headed up by Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner. But it's not enough for Ben, whom In Touch Weekly reports (via celebitchy.com) is suffering from "estrogen overload."

While Ben's longing is completely understandable, to some it might seem that employing the kind of high-tech sex-selection techniques that fertility doctors offer might border on extreme.

Very interesting.
Barack Obama was caught checking out the well-rounded backside of Mayara Tavares, a 16-year-old Brazilian girl at the G8 summit in Italy yesterday.

These guys are just guys, and it was a nice butt.

Celebrity stories too juicy to miss. Here's what else went down today in celeb-love-land.
Since not enough people think John Edwards is an irredeemable sleaze, apparently, he's now attacking former aide Andrew Young for allegedly surreptitiously videotaping Edwards and his mistress, Rielle Hunter, knocking boots.
As Life & Style reports, Kate leaves every weekend so that soon-to-be ex-husband Jon can spend time with the kids. An arrangement that has, as the glossy put it, "forced [her] to do what any mother would dread: leave her own home—without her children."
