Stars' BabyGate: Magazines Willing to Negotiate Millions for Celebrity Pregnancy and Celebrity Baby Shots

No, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez did not start the baby shot race. Actually, the thirst or hunger for anything celebrity or star has always been around. The whole world took notice of Michael Jackson's babies. Before his kids, the public could not have enough of Princess Diana and Prince Charles's heirs. Famous babies always attract the curiosity of admiring fans. But it was not until Baby Shiloh was born that true baby shot gaga entered the consciousness of the American public. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt allowed People to photograph their daughter in exchange of a sizable amount or donation to a charity of their choice. Since then, celeb baby covers have been big business. No wonder paparazzi become more determined to get the last shot. OK! Magazine enter the field on the British side. Rights are bought. And copies of magazines full with exclusive shots of these little mega-millionaires are fed to the hungry public. Only in this country can newborn arrive with a silver spoon in their mouth!

So, photos of pregnant Halle Berry will sell. So will those of Nicole Kidman. Now that Angelina Jolie is pregant again, everyone is watching to see how much their baby (ies) will fetch. How about the next offspring of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes? Suri Cruise had her own exclusives. Violet Afflect, daughter of Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck attracted so many consumers. More and more copies of OK! and People magazines arrived at the stand.

For $1.5 million, Christina Aguilera sold the rights of her baby shots to People Magazine. So far, if the price is truly $6 million for Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez's twins, each one will command a cool $3 million. Who is beating this easy money out there? Stars are making money left and right. How about the teenager sister of Britney Spears who is pregnant? She has been offered a cool $1 million for the rights to shoot her baby's pictures.

Sheryl Crow agreed to a photo shoot with her baby son after OK! agreed to make a donation to the World Food program. Julia Roberts showed a picture of her son during her recent appearance on the Oprah Winfrey show. Can anyone tell me how much Nicole Richie's pregnancy is going for these days? Her pregnancy has done wonders for her tarnished image.

Health and Politics: Universal Healthcare and The Plight of the Uninsured and Under-insured

U.S. Uninsured and Under-insured Brought to the Spotlight by Remote Area Medical (RAM) on "60 Minutes"

The politicians have talking a lot about their health program during their campaigns all over the country. If they want any good information about the plight of American families who are going without health insurance, they need to take a look at last night's show. RAM used to work in poor countries where healthcare is lacking or non-existent. Never did the program directors and the large group of volunteer physicians and medical specialists think that they would be working in the U.S. to relieve people of their pain. The show's reporter showed how some people were lining up to draw a number that would qualify them for health. Thousands came to this parking lot. They came from very far. Many of them had to drive long miles to make it to the appointment. The chances of getting a number were limited. But they came because none of them could afford to pay for insurance. Even those who are working could not afford it. Politicians are talking about the needs for universal healthcare. In the meantime, this group is working hard to make it happen.

The health seekers spent nights sleeping in their cars waiting for their numbers to be called. The lucky few go through a triage and received all kinds of medical attention. The case of a gentleman who had two previous heart attacks but was never followed by a physician was very touching. He was in so much pain. He brought his daughter to receive care too. What the "60 Minutes" show crystalized is the breath of the uninsured problem in this country. While the health program continues to find needy patients in the U.S., many foreign countries in which it worked may have to go without.

Presidential candidates and other politicians should pay attention to the plight of the people. The question is who has a better plan that can deliver the much needed, affordable health insurance to the people. Between John McCain, Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton, we must take a deep look at what's going on.

More Coverage of the Healthcare Issues

Remote Area Medical or RAm is an American relief organization that provides free health care to parts of the world that need it most. Some of the countries that benefit from this charity are Swaziland and Guyana. RAM is doing great business in the US these days. It is providing health care to the uninsured and the under-insured.

A case in point is the recent huge clinic set up for a weekend of free health tests and assessments in Knoxville, Tenn. 276 medical volunteers offered free eye exams, dental care and other tests and treatment to those who showed up. Many of the participants camped out in order to receive free care.

One of the featured patients was a truck driver who drove 200 miles and slept in the parking lot for hours before the clinic opened. He had his number ready and listened for it to be called. It was like winning a lottery. He had an infected tooth which was extracted. There was another patient, 28-year-old who had surgery for cervical cancer in 2005. Since then, she only had one pap smear. The treating physician was surprised to find out that she had not had any close follow up despite the recommendations to do so every six months. In all, RAM had time to see 920 patients over that weekend; 500 pairs of glasses were distributed; 94 mammograms were administered. And 1,066 teeth were extracted. 567 filings were done. Yet, more than 400 people were turned away. This only happened in one state. How about the rest of the states?

Now it makes sense that the presidential candidates are trying to push the idea of universal health care on their campaign trail.

I would encourage anybody to continue to watch these kinds of segment on "60 Minutes."
