Jane Fonda apologized this week for using the C-word on live television, but said that complaints were “pretty silly.” During an interview with Today’s Meredith Vieira about her appearance in The Vagina Monologues, the 70-year-old actress said she was initially reluctant to take the part. “I live in Georgia. I was asked to do a monologue called ‘C---,’ and I said, ‘I don’t think so, I’ve got enough problems.’” After NBC asked her to issue an apology, Fonda said, “I didn’t mean to offend anybody. What’s the big deal?”

Robert Irwin, the 4-year-old son of the late “Crocodile Hunter” Steve Irwin, was bitten by a baby boa constrictor, his mother said this week. “He was so proud to have his first hit,” said Terri Irwin. “He said, ‘I hope it wasn’t venomous,’ so I assured Robert I wouldn’t actually let him play with venomous snakes.” Robert Irwin first made news at 1 month old, when his father was filmed holding him while tossing food to a lunging crocodile.

The founder of the 1970s band Boston has asked Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee to stop using his song “More Than a Feeling” at campaign rallies. “By using my song, and my band’s name, Boston, you have taken something of mine and used it to promote ideas to which I am opposed,” said Tom Scholz, who said he was supporting Democrat Barack Obama. “In other words, I think I’ve been ripped off, dude!” Huckabee’s campaign said the candidate only played the song when he was joined onstage by former band member Barry Goudreau, who is a supporter.People magazine has struck a deal to pay Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony $6 million for the first photographs of their twins, said MSNBC.com. The magazine paid Christina Aguilera $2 million for this week’s cover photo of the singer with her newborn, Max, said Jossip.com, and $1 million for a shot of Harlow, the newborn daughter of Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. Editors said the latest round of spending is only a warm up for an eventual photo of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s next child. “I can’t even put a number on it,” said Katie Caperton, a deputy editor at OK! magazine. “That’s huge.”
