Lydia’s Love, Kim’s Fake Tears & Halle’s Awful Split

February 04, 2011

Another beauty is off the market. Kate Moss is engaged to Jamie Hince, guitarist for The Kills, whom she met in 2007. Watch out for their wedding in July—Kate’s already saying (jokingly, we think…) that she’s the most famous Kate to be married in 2011. She has one child, an 8-year-old daughter, from a previous relationship.

It looks like Kim Kardashian’s tears over her nude spread for W magazine were as fake as the airbrushed cover. Kim started sobbing on her new show Kourtney and Kim Take New York after seeing the nipple shots for the glossy’s Art issue, calling them “full-on porn.” But wait, a change of heart! “Looking back, I love the photos,” she says now, calling them “beautiful.” “W Magazine is iconic so I’m really happy that I did it and that those are the photos.” As long as that’s all cleared up.

Let it be known: American Idol isn’t above creating a ruckus for ratings. Earlier this week, they leaked that the show’s producers would apologize on Thursday for judge Steven Tyler’s “outrageous” behavior. Did he accost a contestant? Show up drunk? Spit out a racial slur? Not exactly. The apology was for Steven insinuating a contestant’s last name of “Muck” rhymed with something else. Turns out the apology was fake, anyway. Producer Nigel Lythgoe tweeted “Wow, there is a huge lack of humor out there!!” There actually isn’t; we’re all still waiting on the joke.

Nicole Kidman is still talking about her failed marriage to Tom Cruise. Of course, she’s “crazy in love” with husband Keith Urban, but says she was “really damaged” by her divorce from the Mission Impossible star. One thing she didn’t mention: Her rumored anger over her time sucked into Scientology. Some are speculating she named her new baby Sunday Rose for Catholic reasons and to distance herself even further from Tom’s religion.

Could a showdown between Kate Middleton’s parents and Buckingham Palace be in the works? From all accounts, Prince Charles likes the “commoner’s” parents, but now comes rumors they might be trying to cash in on April’s big royal wedding. They own a mail order store for party products, and according to a Facebook post, are preparing to sell British-themed favors just in time for the wedding. The Middletons are trying to avoid the wrath of the Queen, who detests commercialization of the monarchy. Good luck with that.
