Jeff Foxworthy: I’ve Learned A Lot From Kids

Jeff Foxworthy: I've Learned A Lot From Kids

Once known for his “you might be a redneck if…” one-liners, Jeff Foxworthy is now known for making us question our educational background in his hit TV quiz show Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader? Jeff and his wife of 24 years, Pamela Gregg, have two daughters, Jordan, 17, and Julianne, 15. The 51-year-old stand-up comedian/actor/TV host wrote this thoughtful article for PARADE, outlining the many lessons he’s learned from his own two daughters and from the smart kids on his show.

“I get all kinds of people coming up to me in the grocery store and at Home Depot, but instead of shouting, “Hey, I’m a redneck!” like they used to, they say, “Guess what? I’m not smarter than a fifth-grader!” That’s the big appeal of the show—every adult thinks he can do it, and then he finds out pretty quickly that even if he learned it once, it’s gone now! You look at your brain and you wonder, Why did it decide to keep the file with all the words to the Gilligan’s Island theme song but delete anything about triangles?

I’ve learned a lot from working with the kids themselves. For starters, I’ve learned that they’re much more capable than we believe they are. We’re probably the most overprotective generation of parents that’s ever been on this planet, but I’ve found that if you turn a group of kids loose in the outdoors, they learn to work together. They learn how to build forts and solve problems, like, How do we cross this ditch or this creek? That’s how we all find out what we’re capable of. Best of all, they figure out how to entertain themselves without electricity. Amazing!

Jamie Oliver’s Got A Lot On His Plate

Jamie Oliver’s Got A Lot On His Plate

There are not enough hours in the day for celebrity chef Jamie Oliver. The 34-year-old Naked Chef, who is considering celebrating his 10th wedding anniversary with wife Jools next year by renewing his vows, is swamped with his TV series, Jamie’s American Road Trip, his new cook book, Jamie’s America, five restaurants, a mail order business and, of course, his three daughters – Poppy, 7, Daisy, 6, and 6-month-old baby Petal.

“I used to work seven days a week until Poppy was born,” Jamie tells The Daily Mail. “Then Jools said, ‘Right, Mondays to Friday are yours, the weekend’s mine.’ Anyone looking after three kids knows it’s hard. Being rich makes it easier.”

Jamie does admit that despite his wealth, children are still a handful: “They’re still kicking off left, right and centre.”

Victoria Beckham & Her Cuddly Romeo

Victoria Beckham was spotted standing with her 7-year-old son Romeo James, who cuddled his stuffed animal, at the LA Galaxy vs. Toronto game in Carson, CA on Saturday (Sept. 19). Vicky’s two other boys – Brooklyn Joseph, 10, and Cruz David, 4 – were also seen cheering on dad as they munched on a snack.

Posh Spice recently commented on their move to America:

You know, I love America. It’s such a positive country. When people say to me, ‘How long did it take for you to adjust? Poor you, it must’ve been really difficult’ – poor me? I’m living in Beverly Hills. I’m very, very lucky. I wake up every morning and I recognize that I’m blessed.”

    Halle Berry Shops In Pink

    Halle Berry Shops In Pink

    Actress Halle Berry picked up some goodies for her 19-month-old daughter, Nahla at Auntie Barbara’s Kids in Beverly Hills this afternoon (September 19). The former model looked like a Grecian Goddess in her pink dress and sandals!

    Berry recently admitted to being “smitten” with boyfriend Gabriel Aubrey. After dismissing pregnancy rumors on The Jay Leno Show on Thursday (September 17), Berry confessed to falling for the model after spotting him on a bus.

    “He wasn’t riding on the bus, he was on the side of the bus, you know, he’s a model,” Berry, 43, clarified. “I saw the picture and I just thought, hmm.”

    Three days later she met him at a photo shoot and the two hit it off.

    “I just remember making a mental note of, ‘Wow, that’s a good-looking man,’ and then three days later, bam, there’s that good-looking man!”

    Now, the two love birds are celebrating four years together, which Berry says is a big deal.

    “Four years. The longest relationship I’ve ever had, yes, yes the longest one,” says Berry who has been married twice before. “For me, that’s good!”
