Oh here we go. Emails from the indignant – who is this foul beast and HOW DARE SHE soil the Monarch’s eyes with such a disgrace of an appearance????????????????????? OMG. Full Story

Check out these group shots of the members of the Harry Potter family who were in attendance last night at Lincoln Square for the FINAL FINAL FINAL carpet of the film franchise. Alan Rickman’s at the back! Don’t stick Snape in the back! Come to think of though, he probably wanted to stand in the back. Full Story

Hugh is ready for Broadway

As mentioned yesterday, if you’re in Toronto, or if you can get to Toronto, you need to get to Hugh Jackman’s one-man show at the Princess of Wales Theatre. Because there’s not another performer like him in the business right now. This is not hyperbole. He can literally do it ALL. Hugh’s Toronto performances are earning outstanding reviews and many have said that they are a major improvement over what he debuted in San Francisco a couple of months ago. Full Story

It was a week ago today that Her Serene Highness The Princess of Monaco Charlene Wittstock and Prince Albert showed us the first in what would eventually be a series of awkward kisses and interactions at their splashy wedding. The couple is on honeymoon in South Africa and attended a dinner party last night. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Um, I love Hugh Jackman, SO much, all over again. Went to see his one-man show at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto. OH. MY. GOD. One of the most amazing displays of Amazingness. And a LOT of jazz hands. It is corny, and campy, and he is charismatic and charming and lovely and so committed to every minute of his performance and this, this is why, right now, he has no peers.  Read Full Intro

David Beckham just posted this photo on his Facebook page: Took this pic of Victoria while she wasn't looking. She looks amazing, so close now to the baby being born!Um, as IF she wasn’t looking. As IF they didn’t try this at least 15 times, and he showed her every time, and she readjusted even more times, until they got it right. Full Story

Barely. How many personal trainers does it take to train Mariah Carey? There were a few of them surrounding her yesterday in New York as she was apparently headed to a workout. With full hair and makeup? Please. I don’t know why I bother asking. Having said that, I often hit the gym with my trainer Hayley after coming directly from the studio, in full hair and makeup and, um, sometimes it makes you feel better about yourself. Full Story

Mrs Halfpint is a DAME

Dame Judi Dench was honoured by the Karlovy Vary Film Festival a few days ago in the Czech Republic. Earlier today, I wrote about women of a certain age, the smell of her hunger for a man, and wondered if it was offside to be making that observation about Christie Brinkley. I would NEVER make that observation about Dame Judi Dench. Full Story

Front row Cate & KatE...and the GMD’s hand!

It’s Haute Couture Week in Paris. Cate Blanchett and Katie Holmes were front row, alongside Roberta Armani today at the Giorgio Armani Prive presentation. As you know, Cate has long enjoyed a close friendship with Mr Armani. And of course Mr Armani designed KatE’s wedding dress. So Cate flew in from Australia where she’s been spending most of her time these days to support the designer. Full Story

What advice did your dad give you about tits?

It’s only Monday morning but these are easily, easily the best photos of the week, maybe even of my whole life. The GMD celebrated his 49th birthday yesterday in Miami wearing his favourite hat. He was joined by wife Katie, who threw him a surprise party, and two of his three children, Little Sci Suri, and son Connor who, as I’ve noted before, bears resemblance to his father, and yes know-it-alls, I am aware that he is adopted (!!!) but can a bitch say there’s a resemblance without suggesting they’re biologically connected? Fack! Anyway, Connor decided to go for a swim. Full Story

I don't have much to say about either Ewan McGregor or Stanley Tucci other than the fact that I love them both so the fact that they were together last night at Beyonce's secret show for celebrities in London is a major bonus that probably only 5 of you will care about but more should because it's awesome! Look at them! They're awesome! And they're at a Beyonce concert! What does Stanley Tucci look like at a Beyonce concert WITH Ewan McGregor??? Please! More people need to want to know about what Stanley Tucci and Ewan McGregor are like at a Beyonce concert. Full Story
