Uh oh, LiLo. After waltzing into her grand theft trial in a skintight Kimberly Ovitz white dress this week, Lindsay Lohan riled up critics—and the judge—who say she’s not taking the matter seriously. (Maybe she just wants to clean out her closet before putting the orange jumpsuit back on?) Lindsay pleaded not guilty to stealing a $2,500 necklace from a Venice boutique and posted $40,000 bail. She’s due back in court February 23. Meanwhile savvy designers should reach out to the star—the Ovitz dress is sold out everywhere.
The patented Clinton spin cycle is out in full force this week, with newlyweds Chelsea and Marc Mezvinsky stepping out for a ritzy New York gala after speculation their marriage was on the rocks. Marc went on hiatus from his job to become a ski bum, leaving Chelsea on the East Coast, but they reunited on Wednesday at Cipriani Wall Street for an amFAR event. Calculated move or not, it’s still too early to predict what lies ahead.
At least Jude Law and Sienna Miller no longer have to put up a front. After reuniting in 2009, the couple appeared to be inching toward marital bliss—they were engaged in 2005—but hey kids, staying together isn’t as easy as they make it look in the movies. The second split was “mutual and amicable.” We’ll check back in on the Jude & Sienna merry-go-round in 2014.
This year’s messiest divorce is nearly swept under the rug. Kelsey Grammer and wife Camille have agreed on a quickie divorce so the actor can marry his new girlfriend, Kayte Walsh, later this month. Camille is now wishing them the best. As she should—the newly minted reality TV star stands to walk away from her marriage with $50 million. She’s gonna need a bigger purse.
Some juicy gossip for the front-row set at New York Fashion Week. Former French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld and her successor Emmanuelle Alt are no longer speaking, according to both editors. Carine offered her resignation and some say she was surprised it was accepted, perhaps leading to the bad blood between her and her longtime colleague. Emmanuelle said: “I don’t look back and see clouds anywhere. Carine is someone who needs to be free.” Hmm, “free”? What a kind word for “unemployed.”
Joan Rivers is now looking abroad for her new celebrity targets. This week, Joan, who’s in the middle of promoting her new reality show with daughter Melissa, lobbed a few R-rated words in Victoria Beckham’s direction. “She is a slut,” Joan said. “Because she’s stunning, elegant and amazing and I’m so f—king jealous of her 32 Birkin bags.” Both these ladies are a piece of work.
Finally! Someone in the public eye who’s not ashamed to reveal her weight. Katy Perry talked to Elle about growing up heavy. “I was shaped like a square at one time,” she said. “I’m generally around 130 pounds, which is totally fine for me. But when I was a kid, I was the same height and weighed more like 145. And I had enormous boobs that I didn’t know what to do with.” They seem to be serving her just fine now.
A marriage borne out of angsty teen love and clichéd lyrics can’t last. Ashlee Simpson has filed for divorce from Fall Out Boy singer Pete Wentz, citing irreconcilable differences. Friends of the couple, who have a two-year-old son, are stoking controversy in the press. One says Pete was “a helluva lot smarter than Ashlee. After a while I think she realized she just couldn’t keep up with him in a lot of areas. “ Another blames his excessive partying on the separation.
Has Prince William’s rock-solid relationship with Kate Middleton inspired his baby brother? Prince Harry is reportedly back together with longtime on-and-off-again girlfriend Chelsy Davy, who was seen in Chelsea after spending months in South Africa. Three cheers for Chelsy. Besides, who else would pass the rigorous royal screening process to become Harry’s date before the upcoming wedding?
And speaking of that grand event, this week we learned that despite speculation, the Queen won’t be popping up on television in 3-D. Rupert Murdoch wanted to exhibit the wedding in 3-D, but the technology was deemed too imperfect to showcase such a widely watched event. Next time, Rupe.
