Anne Heche calls her ex a “lazy ass”

anne_hecheDuring a recent appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman, Anne Heche got a little sarcastic about what her ex-husband Coley Laffoon, the father of her seven-year-old son, Homer, is doing lately: “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!’ ” While married to Laffoon, Heche began an affair with her Men in Trees co-star, James Tupper. She drove the dagger in deeper, saying, “Don’t get married. Forever engaged is a wonderful romantic thing to do.” True to her own advice, Heche, whose former lovers include Steve Martin and Ellen DeGeneres, is not married to Tupper, who is the father of her five-month-old son, Atlas. She’s likely bitter about her failed marriage because she tried unsuccessfully to get out of child support payments when her series (for which she earned $65,000 per episode) was cancelled. Speaking to Us Weekly, Lafoon, who currently works for a real estate company, said: “I was disturbed to see Anne taking out her personal frustration on the father of her child on national television.” On his Facebook page he wrote: “I wish Anne could see that public bullying isn’t good for the soul or positive for her child.” Heche is currently working on a new HBO series called Hung and can presumably, now afford to pay child support.

    you are a dirty lesbian….so just go away and find yourself another ….pu…licking tramp

    Perhaps the father should consider supporting his son himself. I don’t agree with the enormous amounts of child support people are expected to dole out. I watched my brother practically starve on a great income due to exhorbitant support payments by a very lazy, greedy ex-wife. Anne has a point. And I do not like the nasty comment by Susan. It smacks of discriminiation.

    The only point Anne has, is the end of the finger she is pointing at her ex about being lazy. The ex does work and supports his son, the article says he works for a real estate company. The thing is that it’s not 100% up to him to pay for everything, she should be paying as well and because she makes the most money (better known as ‘the bread winner’), that expense is on her. It is not her childs fault that she all of a sudden thinks that everything a child needs is FREE or that she doesn’t have to pay for anything for him. As far as I am concerned, she should have to pay alimony as well and if she doesn’t like it, maybe she should have gotten separated or divorced before she went sleeping around! She said, “Don’t get married. Forever engaged is a wonderful romantic thing to do.” Is she still on drugs? Maybe someone should give her a reality check and fill her in on the fact that it doesn’t matter if she’s married or “forever engaged”, as long as she has a child/children with someone, she still has to pay for those kids upbringing and education.

    How come the child doesn’t live with her but with the ex.If i had a child I would fight tooth and nail for custody. Another thing have these women that aren’t married to their boyfriends and having kids ever heard of birth control or just control? Where the hell do they get those silly names from Atlas?Apple? Everyone likes to be original but they go overboard.

    Wow, get some perspective!
    No,not all men marry for money lol

  7. Jo-Anne • August 28, 2009 @ 4:39 PM

    anne is an ass…

  8. tributegirl • August 28, 2009 @ 8:16 PM

    What??? No, that couldn’t have been the real Jo-Anne. Definitely does not sound like the real Jo-Anne.
    Demigod, LMAO, agreed, I haven’t heard of too many men marrying for money!!!
    Ximena, pre-nup or no pre-nup, she has a child with him and should have to help support that child.

  9. Donna • August 29, 2009 @ 2:15 AM

    She is just another example of irresponsibility and self-absortion.
    As usual, the child suffers.

  10. mandee • August 29, 2009 @ 3:36 AM

    nancy, i agree with your post 100%

    mary in this day and age it doesnt matter if youre married, seeing someone or single, you still have the right to motherhood. i agree with the comment on the names

    Ximena if he works and cant afford to buy his child everything, he is not considered lazy. HE DID NOT CHEAT ON HER she cheated on him, therefore she deserves to owe him something while he was home taking care of their child and she was out whoring around. also, like nancy said, the child is HALF HERS she IS REQUIRED as a PARENT to pay half, like it or not.

    tg, i agree she should still have to support the child.

    donna i agree.

    i never liked anne and i hate that fact that she plays in hung. i actually enjoy the show, even though its getting a bit boring now. i think any other actress would have been more suitable for the part. and also, i wonder why she doesnt have homer? (dumb name). shes rich, shes famous, if she WANTED HIM she would have him, she can afford enough lawyers that she could have taken the dad to court and got custody and made HIM pay child support, as far as im concerned she doesnt WANT the child. and to demean your ex on tv? where your child can see? that is disrespectful and pretty catty if you ask me. i wonder how she would feel if he went on national tv and talked about how she may have been cold in bed and a whore outside with other men?

    Anne H is a flake. The thing is this, if HE were the one who made the money and had to pay HER, everyone would freak if HE complained about it, but because the tables are turned, HE is lazy? Nope, he is like any other male or female gold digger out there. Anne is messed up, just like her father…he left her mother and the kids for a lifetime of partying and homosexuality and died of AIDS before anyone really knew anything about it. Everyone is better without her, even Ellen Degeneres!

  13. mandee • August 30, 2009 @ 9:24 PM

    i love ellen 😀

    stupid woman with no brain!

    Who are you referring to, Anne or Ellen?

  16. Liah • August 31, 2009 @ 10:14 AM

    OK all of you get a grip!!

    First off, Freedom of Speach is allowed in America!!! Secondly, nothing menioned in article about husband supporting kid. Sounds like ex is angry/hurt/jealous because, Anne in a happy place in HER life. Whether she is married on not to Tupper.

    Marriage isn’t for everyone. Being engaged, makes you work harder to make the realtionship work and has just as much satisfaction to some as being married. It’s the committed part of the relationship that makes the difference..

    Anne is an excellent actor, mother and to bad she wasn’t physic, as she won’t have ever married the Real Estate Golddigger!! Sounds like he is the one with a problem. Maybe he is the Bully!!!

  17. Carol • August 31, 2009 @ 6:02 PM

    Anne’s a flake…that’s all there is to it from where I stand.

  18. tributegirl • August 31, 2009 @ 7:41 PM

    Carol, agreed. Totally.

  19. Nancy • August 31, 2009 @ 8:14 PM

    OH! There’s your Christmas bonus, Carol! Hahahaha.

  21. Carol • August 31, 2009 @ 9:19 PM

    Oh Nance & TG, I”m flattered…you are both so kind…where is my check anyway, haven’t gotten a pay in awhile…lol

  22. demigod • September 1, 2009 @ 3:26 AM

    Anne seems like a golddigger herself hooking up with Steve Martin, E.Degeneres when she was a nobody.

  23. Nancy • September 1, 2009 @ 8:27 AM

    I got it, thanks.

  24. mandee • September 1, 2009 @ 6:28 PM

    liah, calm down. its only a gossip site. also, i wouldnt expect her EX to pay child support when HE is raising the child. and freedom of speech IS allowed in america, SLANDER on the other hand, is not. to accuse someone of the things anne accuses her ex (who is RAISING the child she DOESNT WANT) of, and saying the things shes saying…im thinking shes not getting enough media attention and is just looking for a way to get more spotlight on her. she needs to grow up and act her age.

  25. Carol • September 1, 2009 @ 7:43 PM

    Demigod, I agree, she was/is a golddigger, Anne is out for Anne, she has nobody else’s good intentions at hand, only her own.
