In addition to the structural renovations that were paid for at taxpayer expense (since Kensington Palace is considered to be property of the country, not property of any particular individual or family), Kate and Wills shelled out some serious (personal) cash for the interior design aspect of the reno.
But, it turns out that Kate is regretting some of the decisions she made during the renovation, blaming them on pregnancyMore >
By now you’re totally aware that Teresa and Joe Giudice have both plead guilty to fraud charges in Federal court, and are awaiting sentencing.
While the team over at Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” goes into hyperspeed trying to film as much of the drama as they possibly can, Teresa’s legal team is also springing into action. The couple are set to be sentenced in July (they both are facing up to two years in jail!), however their lawyers are hoping that Teresa, at least, will be able to avoid any jail time.

In the lead-up to the Oscars, THR did a nice five-years-later story package on the child actors who were cast in Slumdog Millionaire, and how these kids (most of them living in abject poverty before the film) were being helped by the trust set up by Danny Boyle after the success of the film.

Here are some photos of Prince Harry going into Westminster Abbey yesterday. Harry was representing his granny, the Queen, at Nelson Mandela’s London memorial service. Desmond Tutu was there! I would love to meet Desmond Tutu – he seems like such a lovely man. David Cameron was there too, as were a hodge-podge of British dignitaries, politicians, humanitarians and celebrities. Idris Elba was there too – now that’s a party! Harry, Desmond Tutu and Idris Elba. Somebody’s going to get pregnant.
Anyway, as with everything having to do with Harry these days, it all comes back toMore >
