Anne Heche brings a lot of controversy wherever she goes. The actress enjoys the company of men, women and co-stars.

It feels like June 2007 again, with Anne Heche and Coley Laffoon trading barbs in the press, accusing each other of instability and laziness (respectively).

Some feuds are worth a second go-'round.

Laffoon is firing back after Heche's visit to The Late Show with David Letterman last night, in which she called him a lazy ass among other adjectives.

"I wish Anne Heche could see that public bullying isn't good for the soul or positive for her child. It's mean," lamented Laffoon on his Facebook page.

"After coming home from showing two different clients two different condominiums, I was disturbed to see Anne taking out personal frustration on the father of her child on national television," added Coley, 35, in a bid to sound important.

No word on whether Coley Laffoon has his $3,700-a-month child support checks from Anne sent directly into his Poker Stars account, or if he prefers casinos.

He apparently works as a real estate agent, but you wouldn't know it from last night's interview, when Anne Heche was asked what her husband's "deal" is, and derided him for bragging about coaching their son's youth soccer team.

Moreover, describing what he does for a living, Heche said, "Dave ... Here's what he does. He goes out to the mailbox and he opens up the little mailbox door and goes, 'Oh! I got a check from Anne! Oh! I got a check from Anne! Yay!'"

During their contentious divorce, Heche alleged that Laffoon had no job and spent his time ogling naked babes, playing poker online and going to strip clubs.

He responded, of course, that the former lesbian was crazy. Solid argument.

Your move, Anne.

If you were curious what Anne Heche really thinks of her deadbeat ex-husband, she left little to the imagination on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Asked what her seven-year-old son Homer's father is up to, or specifically, what his deal is, the Hung star said, "Well... can you say 'lazy ass' on TV?"

Heche and Coley Laffoon have been bickering ever since he filed for divorce in February 2007 after five years of marriage. She said he was a loser who watches porn and hits strip clubs, while he has called her mentally unbalanced.

Last June, they reached a settlement in which the actress agreed to pay him a $275,000 lump sum and $3,700 per month in child support for their son.

But Heche is still bitter. Asked by Letterman what Coley Laffoon does for a living, Anne said: "Dave ... he goes out to the mailbox and he opens up the little mailbox door and goes, 'Oh! I got a check from Anne! I got a check from Anne! Yay!'"

Wow.

Heche also scolded Dave for marrying girlfriend Regina Lasko: "I told you, don't get married. Forever engaged is a wonderful romantic thing to do."

Anne Heche is joining the ranks of Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson.

Well, not really. There's only one Anne Heche, and this latest odd celebrity baby name can't compare to Bronx Mowgli, though we're not sure anything can.

The actress has given birth to a son, her second, who joins his older brother Homer with a name also borrowed from ancient Greece: Atlas Heche Tupper.

"They are ecstatic," the rep says of the new parents.

Heche and the boy's father, actor James Tupper, met on the set of ABC's Men in Trees and began dating in 2007. They announced they were expecting in December.

Heche's other son, Homer, 7, is from her marriage to deadbeat Coley Laffoon, which officially ended Wednesday. Great week for Anne Heche all around!

Their acrimonious divorce lasted nearly half as long as their marriage, but Coley Laffoon must be psyched. After all, a $515,000 cash settlement will buy him a heck of a lot of online poker games, lap dances, porn and other things he craves.

On Wednesday, Anne Heche's two-year divorce battle with Laffoon came to an end, with Heche paying the man a settlement much bigger than he deserves.

"Anne is relieved this case is over, and is looking forward to getting on with her life and career," her attorney, Daniel Jaffe, told People magazine.

According to the Los Angeles Superior Court documents:

  • The pair will share 50-50 physical and legal custody of son, Homer, 7.
  • Anne Heche agreed to pay Laffoon a $515,000 lump sum cash payment. He'll also get half of all their community property, including more than $700,000 worth of stocks and other assets.
  • Anne Heche keeps her multimillion-dollar home in Vancouver, B.C.
  • Coley Laffoon waived his right to claim any spousal support.

James Tupper starred in Men in Trees. He's has also been the primary Man in Anne Heche since 2006 - and now will have a baby to show for it.

The actress and her beau are expecting their first child.

The two first met on the set of their short-lived drama Men In Trees while Anne Heche was still wed to deadbeat husband Coley Laffoon.

"In that friendship, we kind of discovered we saw the world in a somewhat similar way," Tupper, who was also married at the time, told the Vancouver Sun. "I think we both made decisions that were based on the relationships we were in."

Shortly after Heche announced her split from quote-unquote cinematographer Laffoon (with whom she has a 6-year-old son, Homer), the two stepped out publicly.

"I wish people could meet her in person," James Tupper said of Heche, with whom he shares a home in Canada. "She has such a sparkle and such a love for people, and she works so hard. She is so dedicated to all the good things."

The two will reportedly both be guest starring on Samantha Who? later this season. Should be fun. Congratulations to the couple on their future celebrity baby!

Crazy Anne Heche has reached a divorce settlement with her ex-husband Coley Laffoon in which she must pay a lump sum of $275,000, along with $3,700 a month in child support for their six-year-old son, Homer.

A judge also ruled that she must pay 75 percent of Homer's private-school tuition. They agreed to split the cost of any extracurricular activities.

The two wed in 2001. Prior to that, Anne Heche liked girls. Laffon filed for divorce in February of this year, citing irreconcilable differences.

Soon after, Heche accused him of frequenting strip clubs, watching porn, being addicted to online poker and being a deadbeat dad in general.

Well, he's got plenty of money to double down with now!

The dirtbag fired back in court papers, saying she's insane and her "credibility should be called into question as a result of her mental instability."

Hard to argue with you there, Coleman Laffoon.

When Anne Heche left her husband Coley Laffoon for her Men in Trees co-star James Tupper in 2006, ending his marriage as well... no one batted an eye.

Come on. It's Anne Heche. The woman did the impossible and changed teams, to borrow a classic Seinfeld quote. What's a little infidelity and home-wrecking?

Lately, though, Heche is doing what she can to make her new life with James Tupper normal: "We're so much more comfortable now that our feelings are exposed and everybody knows about them," she told Extra.

Anne Heche says that being a couple makes working together easier.

"They're less challenging," she says of her love scenes with hunky James Tupper. "Usually when you're doing a love scene with somebody you're not in love with, it's like you kiss and you kiss and then you think, 'Oh, great.'"

But for Anne Heche and James Tupper, a love scene is downright fun: "When they yell, 'Cut,' we just lay there and wait for the next take to go," she says.

So cute. So will Heche, who has a son with Coley Laffoon, and Tupper start a family of their own? She says: "Gotta leave it open, ya know what I'm saying?"

If the past is any indication, when it comes to Anne Heche, anything goes.

Despite their very strange relationship, we wish this couple the best. These hot co-stars are like a Men in Trees version of Sabrina Bryan and Mark Ballas.

From Britney and Kevin to the Tommy Lee-Kid Rock fight to that crazy lesbian Anne Heche, the spectacle of a public, bitter celebrity divorces sure is certainly one to behold. Here's The Hollywood Gossip's field guide to some of the major celebrities whose nuptials have unraveled before our eyes.

KEVIN FEDERLINE vs. BRITNEY SPEARS

Britney Spears, Family

He says: Not a lot. Because he has a good lawyer, and she says it all for him by parading around Hollywood clubs in no pants.
She says: He's "the biggest mistake she ever made" (and a stoner with no income).
Custody (of the kids): Currently 50-50, though FedEx is seeking a higher ratio of time with Sean and Jayden. Britney Spears' antics make that a distinct possibility.
Custody (of the fans): Kevin, we think. But only by attrition.

PAUL McCARTNEY vs. HEATHER MILLS

He says: She's got "personality issues," possibly code for "she used to be a high-priced call girl who serviced Arab arms dealers.
She says: The Beatles legend used to slap her around a little.
Custody (of the kids): Amicably shared, of daughter Beatrice.
Custody (of the fans): Paul by a wide margin across the Atlantic, but Mills won millions of fans stateside with her turn on Dancing with the Stars. A one-legged former hooker and "instructional sex tape" star, what's not to love?

COLEY LAFFOON vs. ANNE HECHE

He says: Anne Heche a frickin' nut!
She says: Coley Laffoon is a deadbeat who is addicted to porn, strippers and poker, as well as downloading sexual photos online.
Custody (of the kids): Bitterly contested, but split evenly, of son Homer.
Custody (of the fans): We gotta side with Laffoon, if only because he has no money and Heche had an affair with the equally-married James Tupper.

EMINEM vs. KIM MATHERS

He says: "I'd rather have a baby through my penis than get married again," Eminem said in 2002, after getting a divorce from Kim, who he was married to from 1999-2001. Note: He got married again. To Kim. In 2006. That's over too.
She says: His penis is small, doesn't work.
Custody (of the kids): Changes frequently.
Custody (of the fans): Eminem. Bitch crazy!

TOMMY LEE vs. KID ROCK

Lee (Pamela Anderson's husband for several years) says: Kid Rock is a wuss.
Kid (married to Pamela Anderson for three months in 2006) says: "Tommy Lee said some things that were extremely disrespectful to me."
Custody (of the kids): Tommy and Pam share custody of theirs 50-50. Thank goodness Kid Rock and Anderson did not procreate.
Custody (of the fans): Kid... but talk about a Rock and a head case!

ALEC BALDWIN vs. KIM BASINGER

He says: Kim is a manipulative liar who dedicates most of her live to making him miserable and not allowing him to see daughter Ireland.
She says: Alec and Saddam Hussein are pretty similar.
Custody (of the kids): Almost all Kim, especially after Alec infamously tore Ireland a new one on that gotta-hear-it-to-believe it voicemail.
Custody (of the fans): Alec Baldwin. Sure, he's got some personal issues. But watch this guy on 30 Rock and you just can't stay mad.

Anne Heche and her Men in Trees co-star, James Tupper, recently bought a new home in West Vancouver, where he's living with the actress.

It's a situation he says feels a little like heaven.

The Hollywood Gossip feels a little like puking.

"We are just exploring our relationship and it has been going very well," Tupper tells the Vancouver Sun. "Where is it going? I don't know. Ask me again in a year."

As for their relationship and current situation, James Tupper says, "Canadians are so respectful, they really leave us alone a lot. We have experienced nothing but generosity and openness."

Before returning to work on Season 2 of the ABC show about a big city therapist in a small Alaskan town, Tupper and Heche spent some quality time together.

Specifically, they spent three-and-a-half months in Los Angeles with Homer, Anne Heche's 5-year-old son.

Homer's father is Coleman Laffoon, also known as Coley Laffoon, a camera guy who is involved in a bitter dispute over child / spousal support and custody.

The gist: He says Heche is mentally unstable, while she says he is addicted to gambling and strippers and spanking it to online sex photos.

"He is unbelievable," Tupper says (of Homer, not Laffoon).

"We had a cast baseball game on the weekend and he came off and slugged it over the short stop. He has got a preternatural swing."

It was while shooting the show that James Tupper and Anne Heche first became friends who, he says, kept very clear boundaries.

"In that friendship, we kind of discovered we saw the world in a somewhat similar way," says Tupper, originally from Nova Scotia. "I think we both made decisions that were based on the relationships we were in. "

Despite rumors that Heche again likes girls, their friendship eventually blossomed into something more, and the couple started dating last January, Tupper confirms.

"I wish people could meet her in person," the smitten star says. "She has such a sparkle, such a love for people. She works so hard. She is so dedicated to all the good things."

First, it was strippers and porn. Then gambling and choking of the proverbial chicken.

Now it's a footstool, rugs and a king-size bed that have taken center stage in the divorce case of Anne Heche and estranged buffoon Coley Laffoon.

In documents filed in L.A. Superior Court, Coleman "Coley" Laffoon accuses Anne Heche of taking a number of items - including the master bedroom and yoga-room rugs - from the L.A. home they share.

Under the terms of a judge's temporary order, they alternate use of the house they share whenever Heche is in L.A. That's about as normal as Britney Spears' relationship with her mom.

Coley Laffoon is now asking that the court order the actress to return the property and prohibit her from removing any more items.

Laffoon also alleges that when he returned to the home July 1 and found the furniture missing, he "discovered that [Anne Heche] had gone into my closet and ripped the buttons off of 19 of my shirts and removed some of my pants."

As crazy as Anne Heche clearly is, come on man. Who needs pants when you just sit around and download nude celebrity photos online and ... well, you know.

You know what we're saying, right, Kevin Blatt?

Anne Heche denies Laffoon's claims, and says that all the items she took - her list includes four pillows from Bali, pink bedding and a "picture of saint" - were hers.

"All of the furniture, furnishings, artwork, etc. that was acquired during marriage and paid for with funds earned during the marriage remains at the home," she says in court papers.

The furniture fracas comes weeks after a judge ruled the former couple's 5-year-old son Homer will live with his loser father in L.A. while Heche films Men in Trees in Canada.

He will have alternate weekend visits with Anne Heche, a one-time and possibly future lesbian, while she shoots the ABC show.

Laffoon, 33, a former videographer who married Heche in 2001, filed for divorce in February, triggering a war of words and custody dispute.

He has questioned Heche's lack of parenting and sanity, and accused the actress of resorting to lies to win custody of - and destroy his relationship with - their son.

Heche, who is dating her Men In Trees co-star, James Tupper, has defended her parenting and accused Laffoon of making outrageous financial demands.
