Ashton Kutcher still isn’t funny, Scout LaRue is a Paris debutante

When Aston Kutcher first appeared on the scene, I was a fan. He was hot as hell and his PR machine had him sounding like a super intelligent guy even though his Kelso character was about as dumb as they come. Over the years, though, it’s become apparent that Ashton is much more Kelso than the physicist type. If you’ve been unfortunate to catch any of his recent camera commercials, you know why I really want to shoot him in the back with a potato gun.

So, with the humor that Demi must have learned to tune out like one does with an obnoxious pre-teen class clown, Ashton delivered what has to be the award winning stupid joke of the debutante ball season at Crillon Bal des Débutantes where Demi and Bruce’s daughter, Scout LaRue Willis came out.

OF the hundreds of people at Europe’s most prestigious debutante ball, the Crillon Bal, Ashton Kutcher seemed the most out of place. As the stepfather of Scout LaRue Willis – one of 23 young beauties from around the world making her debut – Kutcher was congratulated on Scout’s “coming out.” Appearing utterly confused, Kutcher looked at the dance floor and joked, “As far as I know, she’s dancing with boys.”

He’s stupid, but he’s not that stupid. Can you just imagine how embarrassing it must be to be a teenager and have Ashton Kutcher as your step-dad? At first it would seem pretty cool, I mean, he’s Ashton Kutcher, right? But then, it all starts sinking in, he’s Ashton Kutcher. Kelso is my step-dad. And Kelso is going to be talking about me to the press.

David Patrick Columbia’s New York Social Diary describes the debutante affair as “a unique forum for the presentation of the world’s most eligible young ladies. The ball is also referred to as the Le Bal de Haute Couture, because it is also a catwalk of the endless creativity of France’s top couturiers…” To that end, Scout LaRue Willis, with her sister debs, were in head to toe high couture.

Scout, resplendent in a Christian Lacroix gown, also had her parents on hand, Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, who was with his gorgeous girlfriend Emma Heming. CAA biggie Bryan Lourd watched Billie, his daughter by Carrie Fisher, debut in Chanel while French actor Alain Delon clapped for his girl Anouchka in Elie Saab and Catherine Oxenberg applauded daughter India in J. Mendel.

I’m still trying to figure out how the daughter of two relatively inactive American actors qualified for the “elite” Crillon Bal des Débutantes. Regardless, I’m sure it was a beautiful experience for Scout, stupid step-dad comments aside. I wonder if any of those girls ever ask Demi if they can’t just please leave Ashton home this time.

    “Young beauty?” Hardly.

  2. Because I say So says:

    Yeah, I don’t get why she needs a debutante ball, either. It’s not like she’s pseudo aristocracy, even by Hollywood standards. So does this mean she’s on the hunt to get married?!

  3. Baholicious says:

    Hmm. The presentation of elite young women, eligible to marry, to ‘polite’ society. So remind me: what was Kutcher doing there…?

    As far as I can see the only thing these gals should be presented for is a Dodgeball lineup.

  4. mojoman says:

    Some pretentious ball for brainless girls with no idea how to survive in the real world is DEFINITELY a ticket to success.

  5. Mairead says:

    This is going to sound cattier than I intend – as I had no clue what this girl looked like – Rumer and the younger one sure – and don’t think she’s unattractive for a second but..,

    Oh my God, it’s Bruce Willis in a dress.

  6. Rose says:

    Wow, she really is the image of her dad.

  7. susan says:

    actually I thought the “coming out” remark was pretty funny.

  8. elisha says:

    Wow, I am soooo 100% with you for that entire first paragraph. I don’t even find him attractive AT ALL anymore.

    In other news, I did indeed find Dude, Where’s My Car HILARIOUS. He shoulda done a sequel.

  9. CosVis says:

    My my…Bruce Willis has some strong genes! Reminds me of how strong Steven Tyler’s genes are but that turned out alright for Liz…. 😐

  10. Leandra says:

    She is cute enough…Bruce Willis in a dress with a bit of Mom’s eyes.

  11. what is ever. says:

    Mairead…I thought the exact same thing. I’m glad you said it though, because you never sound snarky, and I’m sure I would have. 😀

  12. Kaiser says:

    Mairead, amen. Yikes.

    I will defend the idea of any of Bruce & Demi’s girls taking part of a debutante ball, though. Bruce isn’t exactly B-list, and aren’t these European cotillions always looking for diversity?

  13. DLR in Canada says:

    isn’t that a bit sexist in this day and age? where’s the debutante ball for guys that become “men?”

  14. Lore says:

    If you take it as kind of campy-cool it’s probably fun. If you take it seriously it’s pretencious and desperate.

  15. prissa says:

    I think Talullah will be the “beauty” of that family.

  16. MomInNH says:

    I agree that Tallulah is probably the most attractive of the chidren involved. Scout is by far the most hideous. I don’t find her attractive at all, but I suppose that’s why she was at the ball. To find someone who DOES find her attractive.

  17. Tess says:

    Scout LaRue…I think she looks like Bette Midler, whom I love and adore for her talent…but she’s not conventionally beautiful.

    Unless you count the inner beauty and then Bette’s sublime.

    Bette’s one celeb who is enormously generous with her time and money but does her good works quietly and without any desire for publicity. Unlike some, whose names shall go unmentioned.

  18. vdantev says:

    Get a job, Kelso !! A real one !

  19. Codzilla says:

    Wow, she really does look like Bruce. Never noticed that before.

  20. Christina says:

    damn, where’s her face… is she trying to give wrap it with her hair or something?

    seriously though… do people really think she’s ugly? i don’t see it…

  21. Sickitten says:

    Debutante? Did she forget who her grandmother was?

  22. NYC says:

    Scout Willis a “young beauty”???….LOL, you are too funny. The girl is hideous looking. As are her sisters.

  23. Judy says:

    God now I have seen looks like Bruce in Drag! None of their kids are even half way good looking. Why they have them at a ball??? if beyond me…there is no fairy godmother going to bibbity bobbity boo a husband for those girls and Ashton looks about 16 years old on those pictures. Good Lord what a mess that group is.

  24. RAN says:

    I have to laugh and agree with the other posters – I’ve never noticed it before, but that poor girl is Bruce Willis in a dress with hair. Poor kid 😥

  25. Bodhi says:

    Poor girl. Too bad her momma is the poster girl for plastic surgery & set a horrible example for her.

  26. Sunnyjyl says:

    Parents pay through the nose for these things. I didn’t realize these archaic events still took place, until an acquaintances daughter “came out” in New York. I heard how much they spent, and thought,” I could live on that amount for a few years.” I find it revolting, but whatever. There are a lot of weird things in the world.

  27. Jinxy says:

    Yeah, I don’t get why she needs a debutante ball, **

    Debs are presented to eligible bachelors, meaning, she’s looking for a wealthy husband and European connections. A time honored way to ensure your daughter will marry and live in the lifestyle she is accustomed to.

  28. RaraAvis says:

    Oh, please. You could put a thousand young women in a room and Rumer would still be the ugliest. That chin! Aaugh!

  29. Kim says:

    Who does debutante balls in this day and age? They sound medieval. These poor kids. Looking like their father. Tallulah should thank her stars every day.

  30. doodahs says:

    Wow, Demi looks younger than her daughters! 😯

  31. Sunny says:

    I really do think the ‘coming out’ comment was a joke.

  32. Judy says:

    Why doersn’t Demi get off the surgeons table long enough to get her kids some surgery and some helo with the way theyb dress and for cripes sake that HAIR!!!!!!!!!!!! That girl looks like a tranny and they let her look this way. The oldest has a jaw like a boxer asnd that short one has NO NECK.. bad genes all the way around lol Then Demi marries a kid that looks about 16 and acts the same way..what the hell is up with those parents? Bruce is always runing with girls that same age as his kids for cripes sake.

  33. Talie says:

    This debutante ball is actually kind of a joke in the circles that the real elite society run in. All the girls at this ball buy in, thanks to rich parents. No celebrity children would ever be at a real coming out.
