Travis Barker loves performing with Blink-182, but not enough to travel with the band to Australia. The Meet the Barkers star says he’ll be passing on the opportunity to accompany his band on tour in Australia as a tragic accident has left him deathly afraid of flying.
Tragic news coming out of South Carolina. Travis Barker and DJ AM, whose real name is Adam Goldstein, were critically injured in a private plane crash, and the four other people onboard were killed. The plane crashed around midnight on Friday, September 19 after taking off from an airport in Columbia, South Carolina.
Former Meet the Barkers star, Shanna Moakler, is holding a piglet-naming election on her Myspace page. That’s right — just days after ex-hubby Travis Barker makes headlines for announcing the couple’s divorce, Moakler gets some attention, pig-style. Seems she’d rather focus on new beginnings than endings, and wants help from her fans in naming the newest addition to the family — her piglet.
Suggestions have been coming in fast and furious, with some expected low blows in the mix (Lindsay LoHam, Spamela Anderson, and frontrunning nasty dig, Paris Hilton), but Moakler has narrowed it down to five choices.
Fans (or even just the simply curious) can visit Moakler’s Myspace page and vote on one of the following names: Panda, Porkchop, Spider Pig, Flower, or Daisy.

This on-again, off-again couple has made off-againtheir permanent status this time. “I’m no longer with her,” Barker confirmed in a recent interview. “We actually divorced a few days ago.”
Don’t look to see him hitting the town with any new ladies anytime soon, though, as this dad is totally committed to what’s waiting for him at home. “I have a beautiful daughter at home, a beautiful son at home. That’s where my head is right now,” he says. “I don’t have time for anything else.” He’s, of course, referencingkids Landon and Alabama.

You’ve met “The Osbournes,” you’ve seen “The Newlyweds” – now “Meet The Barkers,” the most punk rock MTV family reality series yet. Another hit in the genre of mismatched rock’n'roll couples and their alternative lifestyles; and the most romantic of all the series.
The mohawked, tattoo laden drummer of blink-182 has found true love with a former Miss USA turned TV actress, and they are crazy enough to invite the whole world to watch, as they begin their hectic lives together.
