Alicia Silverstone goes mouth-to-mouth to feed son Bear Blu

Alicia Silverstone

Alicia Silverstone has a reputation for doing things her own way when it comes to food, and now the vocal vegan is taking it to the next generation — by chewing her son's Bear Blu's chow for him and serving him mouth-to-mouth.

Think mommy bird, baby bird. Just don't think too hard or you might hurt yourself. Or at least hurt your chances of having a pleasant dinner.

"I just had a delicious breakfast of miso soup, collards and radish steamed and drizzled with flax oil, cast iron mochi with nori wrapped outside, and some grated daikon," Silverstone wrote Friday on her blog, the Kind Life, where she also shared video in a post titled "Breakfast With Baby Bear."

"Yum! I fed Bear the mochi and a tiny bit of veggies from the soup…from my mouth to his. It's his favorite...and mine. He literally crawls across the room to attack my mouth if I’m eating."

Silverstone wrote that the video, which we've got for you below, was taken a couple of months ago when the kiddo, was still wobbly, but says, "Now he is grabbing my mouth to get the food!" The tot, her child with hubby Christopher Jarecki, turns 1 year old in May.

Suddenly, word that new mom January Jones has been swallowing capsules filled with her own placenta doesn't sound quite that offbeat.

Worst celebrity baby names of 2011: Moroccan, Bear Blu, Zuzu

Mariah Carey's son Morroccan tied for the year's worst baby name

What distinction do Mariah Carey, Alicia Silverstone and "Top Chef" contestant Tania Peterson share? They all had babies this year, and they all chose poorly when it came time to fill out the birth certificate.

According to a poll of 10,000 visitors to the website BabyNames.com, Silverstone and husband Christopher Jarecki tied with Mariah Carey and husband Nick Cannon for the worst celebrity boys' name.

Carey and Cannon gave birth to twins on April 30, but their girl Monroe was spared any infamy. Carey and Cannon's son, Moroccan Scott Cannon, was not so lucky. A few days later, on May 5, Silverstone and Jarecki had Bear Blu Jarecki. And it was done.

Meanwhile, pastry chef Tania Peterson and husband Phil are all alone at the top of the worst celebrity baby names for girls. Their daughter, Zuzu Audrey Peterson, was born Jan. 30.

But not all celebs display astoundingly bad judgment when it comes to naming their offspring. Pink and her motocross racer husband Carey Hart gave birth to daughter Willow Sage Hart on June 2. She topped the poll for the best celebrity girl's baby name. Ne-Yo (real name Shaffer Chimere Smith Jr.) and girlfriend Monyetta Shaw gave birth to their second child: Mason Evan Smith. He topped the poll as having best celebrity boy's baby name.

Some celebs seemed to be channeling one another: Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffani Thiessen and the Beckhams all chose the name Harper, which is now 2011's 10th most-popular baby name overall.

Among the parents-to-be who might appear on the poll in 2012: Kourtney Kardashian, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, Robert Downey Jr., Alyson Hannigan, Jessica Simpson and "Dancing With the Stars" winner J.R. Martinez.

Here's hoping they all choose to get creative in the maternity ward.

Alicia Silverstone welcomes baby boy, names him Bear Blu

Alicia Silverstone has a baby girlAlicia Silverstone received the ultimate early Mother's Day gift: a baby boy! Like Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon before them, she and hubby Christopher Jarecki went the nontraditional route, naming their little guy Bear Blu.

(Sounds like the perfect playmate for Roc and Roe, right?)

The "Clueless" actress, 34, welcomed the 7 pound, 15 ounce bundle of joy Thursday at a Los Angeles-area birthing center.

"We are all three in love," Silverstone wrote on her blog. "I'm so grateful to this community for all the love, support, good wishes and happy vibes you've sent me during my pregnancy ... it has been wonderful. Thank you all!"

Just last year, Silverstone, who wed S.T.U.N. frontman Jarecki in 2005, was gushing about how much she wanted a baby during her Broadway run as an expectant mother in "Time Stands Still."

"I've been wanting to have a baby since I was 2 years old –- I'm destined to be a mother," the vocal vegan and author of "The Kind Diet"  told People. "I can't wait to be pregnant."

Mission accomplished.

Camille Grammer skipping Kelsey's wedding, will appear on TV

Camille Grammer Today in Camille Grammer revelations, we learn that the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" blond will, um, not be attending ex-husband Kelsey Grammer's upcoming wedding.

Perhaps revelation wasn't the perfect word, but it's true nonetheless.

"I don't want to be involved with the wedding, not at all," Grammer told People. "But I don't begrudge him his happiness."

Grammer will instead spend time with her and Kelsey's daughter, Mason. The reality star isn't purposely keeping her little one from Dad's nuptials: Mason has a talent show the same day that she's been hard at work on.

"I told her, 'Mason, you can go. Please, if you want to go to your daddy's wedding, please do,' and she said, 'No, Mommy. I want to go to my talent show,' " she said.

Mason's mom has some talents of her own — Grammer, maiden name Donatacci, will appear on the CBS comedy "$#*! My Dad Says" alongside William Shatner on Thursday, lampooning herself from her much-discussed Bravo series.

"I was terrified going on the set ... I felt intimidated, but I did my table read and ... I got some laughs, so that's a good thing," she said of the experience.

Will you watch Camille? Thoughts on her plans for Kelsey's wedding? Tell us in comments.

Brittany Murphy dies at 32; young Hollywood reacts

Brittany1 Hollywood expressed its condolences Sunday after the death this morning of actress Brittany Murphy. Public wishes came from the likes of ex-beau and costar Ashton Kutcher, Eliza Dushku, Lindsay Lohan, Jessica Simpson (who called her "an incredible ray of Light"), Alyssa Milano, Fred Durst, Soleil Moon Frye and Kim Kardashian, among others. 

Her "Clueless" costar Alicia Silverstone told People that although the two hadn't stayed in close touch, "I feel love in my heart for her -- and hope she is at peace. This is truly sad."

Murphy, 32, had just recently talked to "Access Hollywood," touching on her return to work after a three-year break and on spending time with her family, and sharing her New Year's resolution: "I'd love to have a child next year -- but that's kind of a large one."

Though foul play is not suspected, TMZ reports, Brittany's death is being investigated, which means that despite screenwriter husband Simon Monjack's wishes to the contrary, an autopsy will be performed. Toxicology reports won't be back for several weeks.

Craig Ferguson, you nut! This man knows how to work a flashlight.

E! has the scoop on the lights going out during Craig's Tuesday taping.

The takeaway? Read Alicia Silverstone's book, or you will pay a steep price. (And if you're not the reading type, just click and fast forward to around the nine-minute mark to see the Power of Alicia. Be afraid. Be very afraid.)
