Around the Web


  1. Hey all. I came across your blog site using yahoo. That’s a genuinely well published post. Let me make sure you bookmark the item obtainable back in continue reading of this handy info. Wanted write-up. I’ll undoubtedly return.

  2. I don’t know who I love the most – Robert DeNiro or Al Pacino. They are two terrific actors and appear to be very happy with their wives and significant others. Wish I was one of them with a smile!!!!!!!!!

  3. Maybe he is just squinting his eyes because the sun is bright & she may be holding his hand because they are about to board a boat & are holding each other to steady there feet or maybe his mom just wants to hold her baby’s hand regardless of how old he is.

  4. He reminds me very much of Jett Travolta. I think this kid has autism aswell. He appears to be not completely normal. Doesn’t matter though, I think he’s taken good care of.

  5. One of the best and one of my favorite actors ever. His wife is lovely. This is the first time I believe that I saw their child; he looks like the both of them. Actually, wasn’t sure if they had any children. She reminds me of Phylicia Rashad more so in other pictures actually.

  6. I remember reading an article some time ago that Elliot has special needs/disabilities but don’t recall what the disability was. De Niro’s twins, with Toukie Smith, were not adopted. They were conceived in vitro and carried by a surrogate mom.

  7. Elliot is not adopted
    and yes he has learning disabilites
    Robert help his exgirlfriend Toukie Smith adopt twins that he at first didnt wont anything to do with them but later change his mind about it.
    although i have never seen him picture with them

    • I haven’t seen the twins for a while. I remember them as being curly-haired cuties. His oldest son with Dianne looks 100% Italian. He’s got quite a beautiful variety.

  8. Hi Sherley, I was thinking the same thing as you. Do you think his eyes are blue behind that squint? They should be according to the would be geneticists of BCK.

    • Hey Pisces, happy Monday! Not only should he have blue eyes, but his hair should be in a ‘fro with tight curls at the end.

          • Sorry to hear you’re feeling a little down, you probably need a little break because it sounds like you are really busy and you have a stressful position with a lot of responsibility.

            I know that people oriented positions can be highly demanding. Take care of yourself and relax.

            I’m enjoying your communication at BCK this morning. It’s very positive.

    • I was thinking that, although autism doesn’t cause you to scowl so much.

      He looks like a good mixture of mom & dad.

      • It actually can make one scowl (presumably). If an autistic person is in an unfamiliar setting or situation they might be resistant to that and it could be expressed facially. He looks a bit frustrated and disoriented. That and the sun seems to be in his eyes. =)

        • Same goes for all teenagers. My son scowls at the thought of doing something fun he didn’t suggest..till he starts having fun.

          By the way, I don’t know if he scowled throughout the trip, I’m just counting the scowl in the pictures above, I see 3 in two different scenarios.

        • Not saying that it’s part of being autistic because I know everyone scowls at one time or another. I just wanted to point on that my son who is autisic does it

        • Really? Have you figured out why? My girlfriend’s daughter is autistic & while she doesn’t like smilling, she doesn’t scowl or frown much; she’s usually dead face..no emotion at all.

          • Kordell is happy,energetic and smiles alot but for some reason as soon as he gets outside we see the scrunchy face at least 4 or 5 times while we’re out. It happens even if it’s not sunny out. I purchased some sunglasses for him but he doesn’t like anything on his face so he doesn’t keep them on! {shrugs}

    • I was thinking that he was squinting–not scowling. It looks like it was pretty sunny wherever they were at and Elliot doesn’t have any sunglasses.

    • Uh oh, you’d better not dare say that a child featured on BCK has autism! People will “flag” your comment because they want to keep living in their fantasy world. The world where every child is born perfect. They need to realize that Autism and mental disabilities are a very real fact of life! I’m upset because narrow-minded people only see things the way that they want to see them and it hinders others from learning from other people’s experiences. Sorry for unloading all of that on your post, but I’m still upset from the last time that the subject of Autism was brought up.

      • Sorry I agree. He does look “special” and i’ve never seen a 13 year old holding mom’s hand inless of course they are.

      • Billie’s mom that is not the issue. Its when people randomly spout off a diagnosis. Of course special needs and disabilities are part of reality, WHO is disputing that?

        • But who says that they are “randomly spouting off a diagnosis”? They are just stating their opinion and most of the times, it isn’t done maliciously. Most of the time, it is done in response to someone making a comment about a child’s appearance or behavior in a picture. It is simply a response based on opinion or in some cases, personal experience.

          • Random for example is assuming a child has special needs if its got a gape mouthed look in some pics or looks awkward in general. Lord have mercy on the nerdy looking kids and some random person gets a gander of a pic or two (insert sarcasm). Must be special? Really? I’ve always stated I don’t know, so I am not gonna speculate. If a parent comes out with a diagnosis, then yes, I’ll respond, that kid has autism. That is all AND ITS MY OPINION, you’ve got one, and so do I. Thanks!

  9. More evidence of another myth perpatrated by wanna be BCK geneticists now debunked.

    Nice looking family, though. I loved Robert De Niro the Godfather, Raging Bull, and Goodfellas.

      • Oh yes… I remember that post. And you’re right, people on this site are forever trying to control other people’s thoughts and opinions!

        • Maybe his mom was holding his hand because she saw something we didn’t see in the picture?

          My mama’s boy brother was 13 & still holding unto my mother’s hand when we were in public because he got attention. Other than being a womanizer, there isn’t anything (else) wrong with him.

      • I am glad you wrote an explanation to hopefully silence those who are taking your few comments out of context.

        As pertains to the recent Seal thread, I saw exactly what you were talking about and couldn’t believe my eyes, the ignorance.

      • People watch a little discovery Health channel, judge judy, Maury, Grey’s Antamoy & take a Psychology class for a semester & think they can go around diagnosing people, do a DNA test, & preach the law. hahaha

      • Haven’t you figured out by now that some people like to get the hair-pulling going? They deliberately make asinine comments to get people riled up.

      • i was thinking the same thing. he looks like he may be blind.

        is his wife the one who looks like a bigger version of Jada Pinkett-Smith? who’s the lady in the colorful dress?

        • Elliot is not blind. I use to “work” for the family and know that he has some developmental health issues especially with erratic outburst.

          Nice looking family nonetheless.

          • thanks for the info. i don’t know them or know about his health issues, but it just looked like something was “different” about his eyes.
