Hugh Grant Gossip

Hugh Grant 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,

We shot a segment the other day at the 2007 Cannes Gifting Lounge at the Carlton. Among items offered to celebrities: luxury trips to Tahiti, the Caribbean, and Kenya and the opportunity to adopt an elephant. Forty elephants were adopted by the company sponsoring, baby elephants were then gifted to the likes of Pamela Anderson and Minnie Driver – in name only. Full Story

The theme was honouring Poiret – the 20s are back, metallic is in full rage. Some did it well, others threw up all over themselves. But as suggested by my producer the lovely Lara, I’d be remiss if I didn’t describe what we’ve now dubbed Anatomy of a Red Carpet. Because seeing the photos is one thing, but watching how they achieve the photos is more fascinating that you can imagine. Full Story

Just couldn’t help myself on Wednesday – had to PVR the American Idol Gives Back telethon. Was at times cringing at the irresistible cheese (Celine & Elvis) and at others moved to tears – heaving, sobbing, wailing, particularly when the unflappable Simon Cowell lost his sh-t. And of course for Annie Lennox…had to tune in for Annie Lennox. Full Story

Where’s the beans??? Hugh Grant yesterday, a day after attacking a pappy with a tupperware inside a ziplock bag full of beans. This if course was the same incident during which Hugh asked the photographer: “Do you know who I am? I’m a millionaire!” Can’t say it any better than one of my producers at eTalk, Laura, who made the following observation yesterday: “Not only is this comedy gold, but he"s a millionaire. Full Story

Hugh Grant is such a crusty bitch, it kills me. Hugh has been arrested, allegedly for assaulting a pappy. So he’s followed around by a photographer the other day, he’s not happy about it, when the pappy continues, he launches a container full of baked beans at the man before kicking him in the groin, all the while shouting: “Do you know who I am? I’m a millionaire! Leave me alone!” And then he told the man that he hoped his girlfriend and children die of “f&cking cancer”. Full Story

Something about this photo kills me. Hugh Grant, forever bachelor, probably afraid of children, out with his godson Damien the other day. Damien of course belongs to Liz Hurley. Nice to see that the two have managed to maintain such an amicable relationship. As for Hugh and his babysitting skills – I’m thinking his role in About a Boy wasn’t so much of a stretch. Full Story

I’m no body language expert but John Mayer still looks like he’s doing the Walk of Shame, as though he’s embarrassed by his own libido, the way Hugh Grant looked after being arrested for getting blown by a tranny – it’s the same expression on John…. appropriate, don’t you think? And seriously…do we seriously think he’s attractive? Do we? Since when did Squishy Become Sexy? Since when did looking like Michael Jackson become the new standard? And how could a limp dick lyricist attracted to low class hermaphrodites possibly be defensible? Again Mayer fans…I can’t say it enough…I am SO sorry for your loss. Full Story

The Irresistible Drew Barrymore at the Much Love Animal Rescue at the weekend. Not sure if that"s Flossy, her pup that famously saved her from fire during the Tom Green days, but he/she"s a cutie, non? Many of you have been writing lately to express love for Drew. I totally agree. I do not agree however at some of your assertions that she should end up with Hugh Grant. Full Story

Hugh Grant: forever single

Never mind George Clooney – George at least has been married once. Rather, it is Hugh Grant who will never be tamed. Yet another relationship over, this time with Jemima Khan née Goldsmith, the billionaire heiress, to whom he’s been attached for 3 years. The split has been characterized as amicable but given Hugh’s notorious past, I’m thinkin’ his perv couldn’t be reformed anyway. Full Story

Source Black. What’s wrong with black? Is it possible? Is it possible for Vanessa Minnillo to walk a carpet without blinding glitter? Would one matte choice send her over the edge? Or is that too much to ask? Granted, it’s not the worst ever. Full Story
