Things and more things - Parent and Child edition

I watched the interview that Larry Birkhead did with Meredith Viera on the Today show yesterday morning. I didn't pay a lot of attention a couple of years ago when Anna Nicole Smith died and her then boyfriend Birkhead fought for custody of their child Dannielynn with Anna Nicole's attorney/friend/lover/lackey Howard K. Stern. Birkhead ultimately won custody and Stern remained the executor of Smith's estate. I didn't have any opinion about either men, beyond the fact that they both seemed pretty douchey.
Seeing Birkhead on the Today show was sort of enlightening. He seems like he has a really good head on his shoulder and is actually a decent parent. I like that he and Dannielynn are living a quiet life in Kentucky, and apart from this Anna Nicole Smith auction that he's doing in Vegas, for the most part he's staying out of the limelight.

Speaking of assholes who love the limelight - in the wake of Heidi Montag Pratt filing a restraining order against her mother, there are reports that Spencer Pratt's parents have totally "given up on him" and have removed all traces of him from their home.
Wow. You guys, how awful would it be to be Spencer Pratt's mom or dad? I'd totally disavow any connection to King Douche as well. It's actually nice to hear that they aren't supporting Pratt's actions which are kind of gross.
