CONTROVERSY SURROUNDS 'BABY ALLY' AFTER LETTER
Newsprint () LOS ANGELES, CA - A new development in the
Baby Ally story shows resentment among some of the cast members of popular WB TV show Smallville which is entering
its third season this year. Actors Sam Jones III and Michael Rosenbaum were reported to have been "dismayed" by the latest
Baby Ally letter that was allegedly written for Sam Jones III.
"I am not considering this as an attack, but I am hurt," said Sam Jones
III in an interview, "I just think [Baby Ally] and me really hit it off and I thought I was her favorite. I mean, she told
me I was. Now she says different. Why does she have to lie?"
He is not the only member of the Smallville cast to speak out about the situation. While
actor Tom Welling boasts, "We get a lot of fan mail," cast members including Sam Jones III say, "Not me."
But, why the sudden change of heart from Baby Ally? If in fact Sam Jones III was her favorite
cast member, why did she mention the others as being either just as good or better? Sam Jones III says, "I just don't know.
I don't know why she had to do this to me. I really want to get to know her better. But now? I just want to stay away. And
that's just not me."
Actor Michael Rosenbaum said, "She just needs to know what kind of person I am that is not [portrayed]
in the show. I am not bald, for one thing. And also, I am a good guy once you get to know me. I'm not 'weird'. I think she's
just jumping the gun, and I don't know why.
While the stars of Smallville are avidly involved, the question is:
who else can be brought into this? Baby Ally in a recent interview said she meant to "harm" to any of the cast members of
the show, and promises she does like them all, but sometimes she likes one better than the other. Micahel Rosenbaum has promised
to write Baby Ally a letter guaranteeing she will like his character more this year, and Allison Mack is allegedly writing
a letter as well proclaiming, "You will love me this year." Other cast members, and crew members of the show, are just preparing
for another season.
"We're just trying to get this thing put together, we don't have time for
all of the outside politics," said co-creator Miles Millar. "We want to please the fans. If Baby Ally is a fan like she claims
to be, then we want to please her as well. But whether she likes Sam Jones III better than Mike Rosenbaum is not in our hands.
We can only do what's best for the show."
And what exactly is best for the show? One suggestion from a crew member
was to allow Baby Ally to make a cameo appearance in an upcoming episode, possibly as an enchanted baby or some kind of cosmic
force in the form of a baby; but, according to the producers of the show, that is not a realistic approach to handling the
situation. So until then, the only thing the cast can hope for is that their fans, including Baby Ally, tune in each week.
And according to star Tom Welling, that "shouldn't be a problem." (SEP2/2003/11:51PM ET)
NEW DEVELOPMENT IN 'BABY ALLY' STORY
Newsprint () SANTA MONICA,
CA - A mysterious letter from Boys on the Side star Drew Barrymore that was reported to have reached Baby
Ally on Friday allegedly illustrated Barrymore's disappointment in Baby Ally's "mind games" that she was playing
on professional actors in the field of television.
"I think you are being completely unfair to some of these people," it says
in the letter. It also goes on to describe Barrymore's obsequious attitude toward Baby Ally's liking of Boys on the Side,
as Barrymore points out it was one of her favorite films to work on, but the fact remains, she said, that "actors are people
too, and you cannot ignore that fact. That you would single someone out and say that that person is the best is really unfair,
and you should know better." Though she understands Baby Ally's age, she also says, "if you can talk like this, you should
also have the sense to know when you're hurting someone."
Baby Ally's involvement in this has been little to none since, according to her mother, she has
been "sleeping and eating a lot, and can't be available for comment," and since Baby Ally is still being breast fed,
her mother cannot allow interviews while she is "indecent". Baby Ally's napping times have also risen due to "stress" according
to her mother, Faye, and since the explosion of Sam Jones III toward her, she is "upset" and doesn't even want to "play with
her toys". "It's been very troubling for her," said her mother Faye, "I just wish these Hollywood celebrities would leave
But will the celebrities understand this falling out? Or do they want to know the truth from
Baby Ally? When the news breaks, it is certain that it will be a top story around the world. (SEP8/2003/08:30PM ET)
Dea r everyone,
I apologize for not writing back soooner but I have been very busy with
my napping becuz according to my moM i was n't sleeping enoguh and I was spedning to much time writing to famous celebrities,
and so I took a whole lot of really long naps. But now I ahve read all of these things and I want it to STOP!!1 Becuz I like
EVERYONE and I don't think it's really ncie of cerain people to tkae things out of context. I am only on e years old and I
hae a lot of growing up to do so please bear with me!! I am trying to be the best I canf be. Sam Jones III I LOVE YOU SOOO
MUCH! please don'T be angry! And I relaly DO like you, Micahel Rosenbaum, I kknow that you have to be bald for the show, but
it's just WEIRD. And I like Drew Barrymore a lot and I don't like the fact that that letter she sent me FIRST OF ALL never
got to me, and second of ALL it was given to the meedia! Please I want everyone to understand that it's hard being a baby,
but it's harder when you have all these PRESSURES on you!
Thank you for all of your letters, though and I PROMISE i will be better
at writing letters. Again, I apologzie for the misspellings and typos. My spellcheck is not wroking right and my stupid brother
won't help me with editing.
Dear Baby Ally,
I am so touched by the letter you had sent everybody and I really wanted to reach out
and say that I am very proud of you. I used to have problems socially as well, as I could not say my "r"'s very well.
I think it was a very heartwarming gesture what you did, and coming
from one of YOUR biggest fans, Kristen Kreuk, I just wanted to say that I am very, very proud of you. Years ago, I could not
say "very". I had a hard time. I also had a hard time saying "hard". It would take me a while to get a sentence out that had
an "r" in it. But now, I am better, and I believe I grew from it. I think you are growing as well. I am sending you, as a
gift from my heart, a Smallville pasafire (it has a cute logo of an "S" on it, then it says "Smallville" below
it!!) and a batch of homemade pea and carrot blend baby food. My mother says it tastes much better than Gerber, and it comes
straight from my heart.
Much luck to you, and please write back!
Kristen ((singing "You've Got a Friend in Me" right now!))
<3 (a heart for you!!)
SMALLVILLE CAST HARD AT WORK ON NEW SEASON;
SAM JONES III FORGIVES BABY ALLY
San Diego Daily () SAN DIEGO, CA - In a recent interview
with Sam Jones III on a mid-afternoon talk show called Interview: With Patrick Wisnick, Jones admitted Baby Ally was
"forgiven" after being asked about the recent controversy surrounding the show's cast.
"She's always on my mind," said the Smallville star, who promises more surprises
with his role as Pete Ross, "and she's always in my heart. Of course I forgive her. I think she made us all really think about
things. It's hard living in Hollywood and doing what you're doing, on top of having close friendships, especially when the
friend is so young. I'm glad she's understanding, and I feel privileged to be her friend."
Other stars including Allison Mack and Michael Rosenbaum also declared that the issues
they had with Baby Ally were "dropped" and were ready to "move on" with their "life". No comment from Baby Ally, but according
to her mother, she is very happy with things now, and has really enjoyed Kristen Kreuk's baby food.
Tom Welling expressed disappointment in the cast's involvement with Baby Ally and
felt she "got more attention than she deserved", but said he didn't mind her being in the spotlight for too long. "I just
hope this whole thing's over now," said Welling, who plays the smart, but still innocent Clark Kent, "the show was really
getting away from everyone's view. I think that's changed now."
The other cast members who do not share that sentiment, especially Kristen Kreust,
have even opted for an open invitation for Baby Ally to come to the set of the show, and perhaps even appear in a cameo! For
now, however, that will simply have to be discussed by the show's creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, who both claim to
be "Baby Ally fans." (SEP 10/2003/8:07PM ET)
LOCAL CALIFORNIA NEWSPAPER BOASTS FALSE STORY;
SMALLVILLE STAR 'HURT' BY BABY ALLY
Newsprint () HOLLYWOOD, CA - In a brand new development
on the Baby Ally case, a local California newspaper, the San Diego Daily, has reportedly reported false information
about the Baby Ally story. According to reliable sources, and exclusive insider information, Smallville star Allison
Mack is not content at all about Baby Ally's letter to everyone, and in an interview with The Berkeley Star, Mack
claimed co-star Kristen Kreuk was "being manipulative," and "selfish."
According to the interview, Mack, who plays ace high school news editor
in chief Chloe Sullivan, had expressed raw emotions and a "passionate disliking" of Kristen Kreuk and her involvement with
"Tom [Welling] and I had talked about Baby Ally and we both agreed that [Kristen] was taking
this thing way too seriously, and I'm like, why do we really have to care so much?"
This is coming as a shock to many, especially since this is happening at the time of the second
anniversary of the September 11th attacks, and many of the cast members and crew members will not be available for any comments.
The interview, which was printed on September 8th, was not greeted with much hysteria because
"the issue was taking care of itself", according to a Smallville insider.
But, clearly, the issue has not taken care of anything. In fact, due to the San Diego Daily's
unprofessional and hurried journalism, facts were mixed around and tampered with. Now the story can be told with full
knowledge of facts, and truth. (SEP 10/2003/11:49PM ET)

TWO CALIFORNIA NEWSPAPERS FIGHT OVER 'FAIR'
California Times-Gazette () LOS ANGELES,
CA - After attacking the San Diego Times on journalism, Newsprint also added that they offered a "fair,
and balanced" view on journalism, a term the San Diego Times claims ownership to. They also took issue with
the fact that they were being attacked on the validity of their journalism. Although both editors in chief of both newspapers
declined to comment, Newsprint attourney Ty Graff defends their usage of the term, citing that the San Diego
Times claims to offer a "fair and balanced", not a "fair, and balanced" view on journalism.
"You see," says Graff, "that comma is very important because a fair and
balanced view is different from a fair comma and balanced view. It's just that simple."
Graff declined to comment further, and the issue is at a standstill. But further developments
will be printed as they break. (SEP11/2003/02:32AM)
AN OPEN LETTER FROM FAYE AND TED JAIGOFSKY
Greetings and salutations to all. We are the proud parents of this special
little girl we have brought into this world, known as 'Baby Ally'. We would just like to say, on behalf of the Jaigofsky family,
that our daughter, Baby Ally, has been very deeply affected emotionally by what's happened in the past few days, and has become
very cranky so much to the point that she cannot write any more mail to anyone. We as parents are very disappointed in the
way that the Hollywood celebrities have treated our poor little daughter. All we have ever wanted was the best for her. And
when we allowed her to write all of those letters, we did it out of love. We knew she was staying up late, drinking more milk
than she should have, using her father's laptop at all hours of the night, and stressing out so much that she went through
three pasafires in two days. She also has begun drooling an awful lot, and when she does not get her way at meal times, she
bangs her juice cup on her height chair until finally we have to calm her down and put her to bed. She cries when her pasafire
falls out of her mouth, or when her toys don't fit in her hands very well. She throws a fit, and gets cranky, and demands
attention. This is not the normal lifestyle that a baby should have to go through. We should know. We have raised a bright
young boy. Why hasn't anyone taken notice of him? He is not as cunning as Ally is, and he is probably too old to be considered
a prodigy, but he is still very smart and very good at math. Couldn't the Hollywood celebrities use him for their publicity?
We appreciate the help, however, of such celebrities as Drew Barrymore and Kristen Kreuk, and even Michael Rosenbaum who visited
just a few days ago to give us our mail for the week. It was a very kind and sweet gesture.
But, please allow us to raise Baby Ally under the light of our kitchen
and our living room, and bedroom, and not that of a television studio or film studio. She has too big of a heart for Hollywood.
We love her so much.
Ted & Faye
ACTRESS MACK ANGRY OVER DISPUTE
California Times-Gazette () LOS ANGELES, CA - Smallville
co-star Allison Mack has now given an interview about her real feelings on the matters of Kristen Kreuk, Baby Ally, and her
position on what is fair, and balanced. After the taping of the first two episodes, and the controversy has calmed down following
a heart felt letter by Baby Ally's parents that was printed in this newspaper, she has decided to talk publicly about what
she has thought of the past week.
"None of what's been said about me is true, I'm not resentful, but I am angry and
disappointed in the way my relationship with Baby Ally and the cast of Smallville has been portrayed in the media."
In her letter that follows this article, she explains that there is no bad blood between her and the cast, but that her views
on Baby Ally have changed. "What I want is some closure," she said, "I'd really like to hear from her personally. Show me
that she really cares." She also went on about the newspaper dispute. "California has a lot of good journalism," she said,
"but I don't know what's fair and balanced. I really don't. That's not my issue."
Allison Mack otherwise has simply gotten ready for her role in Smallville for
its third season, and plans to have a better year than last. (SEP12/2003/2:04PM ET)
BABY ALLY TO JOIN SMALLVILLE CAST IN SPECIAL EPISODE
California Times-Gazette () HOLLYWOOD, CA - Baby Ally, returning
to the public for the first time in over a week, has accepted an invitation from Kristen Kreuk to join the cast of Smallville
in a special episode coming in October that involves a baby scientist who is trying to take over the world. The twist? The
baby is Clark Kent's sister! Creators Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have been hush-hush about any other developments
on the episode, but do confirm the show will be co-written by Baby Ally and the creators themselves. The episode will also
include a special appearance by new-found friend Drew Barrymore, who couldn't wait to work with Baby Ally, after finding out
she could act. Not all cast members were available for comment, but according to Sam Jones III, everyone is "very happy."
"It's about time we just put our differences aside, all of us [the cast]," Sam Jones
III said. "I think this makes things right again."
"We're all so happy to be a part of her [Baby Ally's] world again," said Drew Barrymore
while talking about other upcoming projects. "I would be honored to work with her."
Baby Ally, after napping for thirteen hours straight, which was a record for any baby
the Jaigofsky family has ever seen, finally awoke to say, "enough". According to her press agent, June Lycand, who was adminstered
to her by Baby Ally's parents, Baby Ally wanted to get in contact with Sam Jones III and Allison Mack to end this dispute.
"It was time for wounds to heal," said Ally in a rare two-minute interview granted
by Lycand, "and I think it's time for us to move on, you know what I mean?"
Baby Ally, interviewed outside her home while she was playing in a sandbox with her
older brother, insisted that the interview be short, and her brother not be involved. "I don't like when he's around," she
said, "he smells," she added.
Her brother, who was unavailable for comment, allegedly turned and ran inside crying.
The change of heart by Baby Ally's parents to allow her to speak publicly was not
"I'm glad we can go on and do our show now," said Michael Rosenbaum. Allison Mack
"She is a cute kid," she said, "and I think maybe we can get along."
Sam Jones III was holding Baby Ally in his arms after they were finished shooting,
and she removed her pasafire to tell him he is a good friend. Sam Jones III was seen weeping with joy.
"It was so beautiful!" Kristen Kreuk exclaimed to interviewers who were live on the
set. "I am so happy this over! It's very fustrating...frust...fuhruhstuhr...frust...rating when things like this happen, and
I'm so glad it's finally over. I'm so emotional, please excuse me," she then wept in the arms of Tom Welling, who was smiling
happily. He, however, declined to comment.
"Things are going to be okay, I think," said Jones III, "we promised to hang out this
weekend, and I think when all is said and done, we're better friends for all of this. I sang to her, 'Just the Two Of Us',
the Will Smith version, and she started crying. And it made me cry. Yeah. Me. Can you believe it? What can I say though? It
was real emotional. And I like to sing when I'm emotional. I'm thinking of putting out a record sometime in the future."
A happy family then? Some say yes. Others want to wait. But one thing is clear: things
are quite content on the set of Smallville these days.

BATTLE OVER 'FAIR' WON BY BABY ALLY
California Times-Gazette () LOS ANGELES, CA - After
over a week of debating and threatening lawsuits, a spokesperson for Newsprint finally came to an agreement over
the dispute of "fair, and balanced." The case was settled in a small dining hall during a luncheon, where the editors
in chief of each paper met each other, and also met neo-celebrity Baby Ally. According to the editors, Baby Ally made
"She compared our dispute to yucky baby food spilled all over the height
chair after eating," said editor in chief of the San Diego Times, Blaine Halperin. "And she explained that
the dispute was 'as empty as her juicecup' and then she held up the juicecup. It really helped us come
to a decision because it was, in fact, fair and balanced."
They came to the agreement that neither paper was fair, and balanced, but that
Newsprint was fair, and the San Diego Times was balanced. They will resume reporting on the matters
of Baby Ally in a few days, and while neither own exclusive rights, whichever gets the story first will print it first. That
includes this news journal as well. As for Baby Ally, she fell asleep in the arms of Blaine Halperin, an action so brave and
adorable, it brought tears to his eyes, according to his press agent. (SEP13/2003/05:32AM ET)
