Being a new mother definitely keeps ya busy!
And apparently it kept Charlize Theron from having her hair properly styled for the Human Rights Campaign gala this weekend.
When Charlize waltzed on stage to accept the Ally for Equality award for her dedication to the LGBT community it was pretty obvious that ponytail hanging over her shoulder was fake.
It's not even the same color as her real hair!
Oh well, guess Char's tresses aren't a top priority now that little Jackson's around.

It's about time!
After a year delay, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has announced that a three-judge panel will announce today its ruling on whether or not the ban on same-sex marriage in California, known as Proposition 8, bans the constitutional rights of gays and lesbians!
Apparently, the panel held off on the decision as they wanted to

The executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights is in damage control mode after Star magazine quoted him in their Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal article.
Charles Kernaghan says the gossip rag took his quotes out of context and doesn't have any proof the factories producing K-Dash by Kardashian, the Kris Jenner Kollection and ShoeDazzle shoes are violating child labor laws or human rights.
Since the news broke this morning, Kris Jenner has denied the allegations insisting the factories are "strictly policed".
ShoeDazzle owner Robert Shapiro echoed the momager's statement, adding he and his team have "invested tons of time, energy and money to ensure the factories are operating in good standard".
So…how long until they file a defamation lawsuit???

We're just glad he wasn't badly hurt.
While in China for the premiere of his new movie The Flowers of War, Christian Bale traveled eight hours away from Beijing to meet Chinese human rights activist/lawyer Chen Guangcheng…and it did NOT go as planned.
Guangcheng is currently under house arrest, and he was imprisoned for over four years back in 2006 for "disrupting traffic and damaging property" while campaigning against "forced abortions and the treatment of villagers in China."
When Bale and his CNN camera crew approached Guangcheng's village, a guard told them to go away, and when they didn't immediately comply, Bale was "shoved violently by the dozen guards in olive green military coats." Scary!
