Former UFC Champion Tito Ortiz has spoken out in response to the domestic violence charge filed by wife Jenna Jameson yesterday, (April 26) FOXNews.com is reporting. In a press conference held last evening, a lawyer for Ortiz, Chip Matthews, claimed that Jameson has had a long addiction to the pain-killer Oxycontin, and yesterday morning there was a relapse,
Jenna has been fighting a battle with OxyContin addiction for the past year. For Tito and her family this has been an uphill battle. Unfortunately this morning she had a relapse. Tito was trying to help her, she has threatened suicide before. Tito has done everything in his power to protect her privacy and the privacy of their children.”
Matthews stated many times that Ortiz did not lay a hand on former porn-star Jameson. Speaking through sobs, Ortiz added, “It means the world to me, my friends and family for their support. My parents have been through an addiction and I see it in the mirror again. I am not going to let my family go through that. I speak from my heart, I hold everything dear to my heart that Jenna will be okay.”
The whereabouts of the couples 1-year-old twin sons Journey and Jesse is unclear, but they are reportedly being well looked after. In conclusion to the press conference, Matthews said, “Jenna and Tito have two children together, they planned on spending the rest of their lives together. They want nothing more than to work together on this.”

21 Grams star and mom-of-two Naomi Watts has a special attachment to her latest film, Mother & Child, as the star was pregnant with 1-year-old son Samuel Kai during filming. Emotions ran high for the actress at a screening of the film in a scene where the director Rodrigo Garcia captured baby Kai kicking mamas belly. Of the scene the actress told Wenn via Canoe Jam!,
Here I had this growing belly and we needed a few shots but we actually only used one. It was a no-brainer because prosthetics never look convincing enough and the good ones are really expensive and this was a tiny budget, so Rodrigo [director] popped on a plane and came with his cinematographer and he stole that shot. Now, when I watch it, I get very emotional because it was that moment between me and my baby and you see a little bit of movement because I drank some ice water and shook him (baby) up!”
The talented actress, who recently shared her thoughts on having a third child, and partner of five-years Liev Schreiber are also parents to Sasha, 2 1/2.

Last weekend, more than 10,000 walked in the March of Dimes March for Babies to help fight preterm birth and give all babies a healthy start in life. Preterm birth is the number one cause of death for newborns in the United States, and babies who survive often face lifelong health problems.
Celebrity parents such as Nancy O’Dell, Dayanara Torres, Julie Bowen, Nicole Sullivan and Galen Gering marched for babies in this great cause on Saturday (April 24) in Los Angeles.
Nancy O’Dell, host of Saturday’s fundraiser, told Celebrity Baby Scoop about the importance of the organization:
I am so honored to be hosting the March of Dimes March for Babies. I’ve been associated with the March of Dimes for over 10 years now and, as a mother, this organization means the world to me. Every year in California alone, more than 55,000 babies are born too soon and too small and it is the March of Dimes which helps so many of those babies go on to lead long and wonderful lives. All babies deserve a healthy start and I am honored to walk for all those precious little ones!”
Comedienne Nicole Sullivan, known for her stints on MADtv and King of Queens, recently talked with Babble about her parenting philosophies, lessons she hopes to teach to her sons and the surprises of motherhood.
On her parenting philosophies: “I Don’t hover — it’s really important to raise independent children. And as little TV as possible. It turns them into monsters! Even the cute shows, [Dashel] watches a half hour, and all of a sudden, he’s picked up three things I don’t want him saying!”
On important lessons for her boys: “Not to leave your life or your happiness in other people’s hands. It’s up to you to make every day fun, good, and productive.”
