Less than a week after Nadya Suleman ripped photos of a bikini-clad Kate Gosselin and bashed the fellow multiples mom for employing such an “attention seeking” beach-body tactic, Suleman’s had an unexpected change of heart. It seems the mother of 14 now regrets lashing out at the embattled Gosselin matriarch and wants to make peace with her reality TV counterpart.
“I kind of self-reflected on why I did that, and I felt really guilty,” Suleman confessed in her latest Radar Online video interview. “I was annoyed. I was fed up. I was probably misplacing my frustration about all of this invasive media crap onto her.”
Last Wednesday, Radar Online posted a clip of the original offense, in which Suleman disposed of Gosselin’s now famous bikini shots and criticized the “Jon & Kate Plus 8” star for both her body and behavior.
The octuplets’ mom first slammed Gosselin for having had plastic surgery, a choice Suleman insisted she would never make for herself, despite allegations to the contrary. In another barb that’s been aimed her own way, Suleman then accused Gosselin of being desperate for media attention. But what a difference a few days make.

“I don’t follow (the Gosselins’) story,” Suleman said in the follow-up video. “I didn’t even realize what they’re probably going through. So I, of all people, should understand the public scrutiny and being condemned and judged. I have genuine regret for having said that. That was really, really unempathetic and inappropriate. I felt bad.”
Lohan blasts Dr. Drew
Though he’s never treated Lindsay Lohan, “Celebrity Rehab’s” Dr. Drew Pinsky had no problem addressing her addiction issues and predicting a grim future for the actress in an interview with Parade magazine. Lohan, on the other hand, does have a problem with the doctor’s long-distance diagnosis.
Slideshow: Lindsay Lohan “I’m convinced that she’ll get sober one day,” Pinsky said. “But I’m afraid that between now and then, she may get a nearly mortal wound of some type. I’m really convinced that something horrible is going to have to happen to her before she really gets over it and embraces sobriety. She needs to give it up. And it’s going to be a while before she does. I have this image that she’s going to lose a limb or something before she does. And it scares me.”
With out even addressing Pinsky by name, Lohan shot back at the “Rehab” host by questioning his medical ethics.
“I thought REAL doctors talk to patients in offices behind closed doors,” Lohan wrote in a post on her Twitter account. “Am I wrong? Hmmmmm. I think NOT! YAY!”
Dish on the fly
Slideshow: Celebrity Sightings Though they’ve each faced their own very public misfortunes recently, the child stars of “Slumdog Millionaire” took time out to help others in need over the weekend. According to the Canadian Press, Ayush Mahesh Khedekar, Azharuddin Mohammed Ismail and Rubina Ali danced to the Oscar-winning film’s song “Jai Ho” for a Hong Kong fundraising event. The children helped raise over $100,000 for The Community Chest, a charity responsible for allocating funds to other organizations committed to social aid. … Kissing comedian Will Ferrell is no laughing matter. Actress Anna Friel, who enjoyed an on-screen lip lock with Ferrell in “Land of the Lost,” ranks him as one of the finest smoochers in the biz. “Will Ferrell is a really fantastic kisser,” Friel said in a quote posted to Star Pulse. “You wouldn’t expect it from him — but he is a really, really good kisser. And he’s got twinkly blue eyes and he was gentler than I thought that he perhaps might be. So if anyone needs a good kiss they should just get on the phone and ask Will.” … She’s estranged from her daughter and she’s never met her granddaughter, and at least for now, Candy Spelling plans to keep it that way. Though Tori Spelling invited her mom to join a bash for baby Stella’s first birthday, the elder Spelling was a no show. “Candy did RSVP to the event but decided not to attend when she found out there would be cameras there,” an insider explained to UsMagazine.com. “She wanted it to be an entirely private meeting.” Not so, said a Team Tori source who insisted “(Candy) knew there would be cameras and had her people call a week before to have the photo releases sent over.” It’s a strange twist in the ongoing family feud. Given Candy Spelling’s knack for open letters and tell-all interviews, it’s hard to imagine a couple of cameras could keep her away.
