The Kid-Dish: Drew Barrymore’s Jewish Parenting Strategy & Barbra Streisand at the Oscars

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

– Drew Barrymore went on “The View” last week and told everyone that her daughter Olive, 4 months, will be raised traditionally Jewish. She also talked about how much she loves Jewish families, which was nice. (Celebritybabyscoop)

– Jason Hoppy, Bethenny Frankel, and daughter Brynn, 2, were out and about under an umbrella recently. Hoppy dropped Brynn off at day care, and Frankel picked her up. Glad to see a couple in the process of getting a divorce work together. (Celebrity Baby Scoop)

– Sarah Jessica Parker went walking with Loretta and Tabitha this week, and the twins were wearing alien headbands. Very cute. (US Weekly)

– This just in: Jewish mother Barbra Streisand will be performing at the Oscars this year, for the first time in 36 years. Did you know she was married to Elliot Gould and they had a kid together? Jason Gould, 46. She’s now married to James Brolin. Way to go, Babs! (
