The Kid-Dish: A Possible Purim Spotting

All the Jewish celebrity parent gossip you (n)ever wanted to know.

- Isla Fisher was spotted with her daughter, Olive, who was wearing an adorable tutu and a purple paper crown. There’s absolutely no evidence to suggest that the crown was part of a Purim costume, but we can believe, can’t we? (PopSugar)

- Tom Colicchio, renowned chef and head judge on the TV series Top Chef, just welcomed his third son, Mateo Lev. Colicchio married his wife, Lori Silverbush, just days after the September 11 attacks, and Silverbush, whose mother is Israeli, was quoted as saying: “Terrorism is not a new concept to me. I couldn’t let them win.” (Babyrazzi)

Paul Stanley of the rock band KISS was spotted toting kids Colin, 4, and Sarah, 2, to breakfast in Beverly Hills. The couple is also expecting a third baby in August. As a sidenote, my favorite trick for figuring out whether a celebrity is Jewish is looking at their real name. Paul’s case? Stanley Eisen. Yup. (Babyrazzi)
