Harry Potter Gossip

Harry Potter gossip, latest news, photos, and video.

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

We spent most of the day at Mahiki yesterday on a shoot. Sound familiar? Mahiki is the club where the Princes go - William and Harry and their friends. On a few occasions, the two have even been photographed leaving there looking flushed and rather inebriated.

So now perhaps you have a vision in your mind of what it"s like: up to royal standard, swank, chic...

Hella no.

Mahiki is hilarious. Mahiki is tiki. Mahiki is wicker furniture and tacky ass tropical decor and the most ridiculous drinks presented in large ceramics shaped like volcanos and jungle masks with flames coming out the top licking the liquid off the side. 

Hilarious. And even more hilarious the clientele - private school boys all of them. With their pinstiped shirts tucked into low rise jeans and flopsy "Hugh Grant" hairstyles drunk of their own sense of entitlement surrounded by young girls trying to land their very own Eton boy. 

Love it.

Sadly however...Hot Harry didn"t ride up on his horse. Maybe tonight.

It"s Tuesday - a thousand apologies.  We have a shoot booked in Paris, have to hop on Eurostar at 8am local time, working all day with eTalk, then returning to London in the evening.  Will not be able to post.

But just for today. Wednesday will be online all day, blogging all day. At least until the afternoon. First day of Harvey Nic"s sale... you understand.

Besides, that piece of scuzz virus gets out today. I"m thinking it"s the only thing you"ll hear about.

Sorry again. Will be back Wednesday with long, long column. Thank you for your understanding. Please please please forgive.

Yours in gossip,

Dear Gossips,

At eTalk, I never ask for assignments. If they send me, it’s cool. If not, it’s cool too. But apart from being a gossip for life, I am above all things a proud Potter-head through and through. And so I begged, begged my producer Laura way back in March for a chance to cover a little bit of Potter-mania leading up the premiere of the fifth movie. When the schedule came out, she put me on it… am now indebted to her for life.

Attended the screening for the OotP on Friday and interviewed the kids on Saturday. Due to a press embargo, I unfortunately cannot say much more about the film beyond this: far, far, far from disappointing. Exhilarating in fact. You will love.

Am still in London, beloved London, shooting all day for eTalk on Monday, posting intermittently.

Yours in gossip,


PS. To Ellie and Hilary – much smutty love for the lovely evening on Saturday. Thank you, love you, owe you. Ended up in Mayfair at a club called the Funky Buddha where blonde girls in casual uniform give massages at the drop of a hat…for a fee, of course. Cheesy and pervy – my favourite combination. Big hug for Kathy and the girls who led me there. Look forward to more wildness Wednesday night.

PPS. Only 24 hours left ‘til the Monster returns. Enjoy it while you can.

A Publicity Prince?

With only six days to go, the Concert for Diana has received very little play … so far. Now suddenly, the Heir is reportedly back with Kate Middleton and therefore back on the front page. And the event goes down on Sunday. Coincidence… or conspiracy? Apparently the two were making out a party last week, openly on a dance floor and retreating later on to his room. Full Story

Impressive her resumé since she told Tom Cruise he “had her at hello”. Very impressive. Renee Zellweger’s career choices and the roles she’s taken are almost never sh-t. She always brings good work. Most importantly I believe her. I believe her in every part…even Roxie. Full Story

Harry on the cover of this week’s Hello Canada - article discussing what’s become a “PR disaster” for the royal family and how his escapades with the Cowboy bimbos in Calgary will affect the concert and his relationship with his family. Quick note on the Cowboys issue – I was apparently remiss in saying it was just like Hooters yesterday. Full Story

Hot Harry & The Orange

Speculation still raging in the UK about whether or not Hot Harry will have to fight in Iraq. I prefer to rage about how hot he is on a horse and his rather orange girlfriend Chelsy Davy, here at a football match the other day. Sounds pervy to say this but his sexy bed head – I wish it was my hands, his hair… you know what I mean? But that Chelsy, in spite of the over tan, looks a naughty naughty minx. Full Story

He was close to getting booted from the Freebie Five. But Harry, on a horse or not on a horse, is simply too hot to go. With girlfriend Chelsy at the weekend, enjoying a cricket match and some PDA. Please just look at the way he’s nuzzling her shoulder. And his lanky body. And the sexy way he holds his lanky body. Full Story

Not usually one for royal gossip and probably total bullsh-t but I’ll play naïve and pretend it’s possible…because it’s just too damn cute. Word is the Queen asked William and Harry to help figure out her voicemail, apparenty the old girl is technology challenged. So they ended up recording this greeting, much to the chagrin of her personal secretary: “Hey Wassup! This is Liz. Full Story

Harry More Hairy than Orly

At least 10 whiskers more than Three Whiskers non? So the Boy Who Lives is more manly man than Orly? At only 17… I think so. Although I have to tell you I’m really not feelin’ what many of you are – a desire to Cougar Rape young Daniel Radcliffe after seeing him bare bare bare in Equus, a new stage production in London. Full Story

Only Jo can do this. In a message to Potter fans on her site, JK Rowling offers a glimpse into her emotional state of mind, now that she has finished the finale, now that Harry’s journey is complete. In typical Rowling fashion though, she teases and tantalizes almost to the point of madness: Charles Dickens put it better than I ever could: "It would concern the reader little, perhaps, to know how sorrowfully the pen is laid down at the close of a two-years" imaginative task; or how an Author feels as if he were dismissing some portion of himself into the shadowy world, when a crowd of the creatures of his brain are going from him for ever. Full Story

Hot Harry on a Horse – for me, since they were young, from the very beginning it has always been Harry. And now, side by side, as the hotness of the spare is showcased in sharp contrast to the dork of the heir…I mean really, is there really any question? Here are the princes, announcing a concert in memory of their mother, superstar performers, proceeds going to charity, full of the spirit and generosity that characterized Diana, a project spearheaded by her sons. Full Story

Her skin - looking remarkably…NEW…is it not? Like a layer freshly surfaced or an old one scrubbed and peeled off, not that that’s a bad thing, not at all actually – I think she looks great – it’s just the sort of thing that jumps out and begs to be noticed, you know? Kinda like Nicole Kidman’s forehead…but I digress. Full Story
