The cakes have been cut, the disco balls dismantled from Buckingham Palace’s throne room, and those lovebirds, Will and Catherine, shared two kisses heard ‘round the world. But what will be the lasting legacy of this year’s royal wedding? Why, it’s the semi-nude photos of those attractive Middleton siblings that have been making the rounds. Kate’s little sister Pippa attracted plenty of attention in her clingy Sarah Burton bridesmaid dress, but racier photos have come out showing her dancing in a bra and having a swinging good time in her younger days. Meanwhile, fans of James Middleton can feast their eyes on a treasure trove of photographs showing him horsing around like a frat boy and dropping trou. The family may have ditched the “middle-class” moniker—but their clothes seem to have gone with it.
The royal newlyweds have had a relatively quiet week since their wedding. Will and Kate postponed the honeymoon, and Kate was spotted grocery shopping. Ah, wedded bliss. It was also revealed they’re tacking on a trip to Los Angeles when they visit Canada in July. Kate’s never been out of the country. Just wait until she gets an eyeful of Rodeo Drive…but in all seriousness, expect the paparazzi to hound them like wolves upon their arrival. Remember the big stink that was made when the Beckhams came stateside? And Victoria doesn’t even have royal blood.
Sarah Palin’s slipping in the polls and is now almost a non-entity in the 2012 race. Her daughter Bristol doesn’t seem to be coping very well. After her stint on Dancing with the Stars she’s stepped out with what looks like a new face. Her jawline is noticeably slimmer and her chin much more pronounced in photos from a recent appearance. It could be chalked up to losing weight, but Bristol looks pretty much the same everywhere else. Expect Mama Grizzly to unleash on the haters in 5…4…3…2…
Newsflash: Charlie Sheen still thinks highly of himself. The disgraced sitcom star asked to be paid $1 million to sit down for an interview with Vanity Fair. The magazine said “thanks, but no thanks” and went ahead with a piece about Sheen anyway. They uncovered how Sheen wrangled $100 million out of CBS, despite the network offering “only” $72 million for his work.
End time may be nigh for Leonardo DiCaprio and Bar Refaeli. He’s been spotted solo at two events—including at an art gallery in the same vicinity as Gisele Bundchen, his ex. Though they both attended the Met Costume Institute ball honoring Alexander McQueen earlier this week, it could have been all for show—Leo and Bar took off for separate post-gala bashes, and a source says they are going through a “difficult patch.”
Elsewhere at the Met, the stars came out for one of the most glamorous nights of the year. Fergie, Beyonce, Blake Lively, Sarah Jessica Parker, and others hailed Alexander McQueen under the theme “Savage Beauty.” From the sublime to the ridiculous, see the most gasp-inducing outfits here.
Finally, what the world has long been waiting for: Arnold is returning to the big screen. After his little sideshow in politics, the Terminator is eager to get back in action, and will star in Cry Macho, playing a horse trainer—probably one with a heart of gold!—who kidnaps a boy. And how much is Schwarzenegger worth in 2011? He’ll be reaping $12.5 million and 25 percent of first-dollar gross. In short: a whole lot of dough. With Academy Award-winning producers backing the film, Arnold may well get his time on Oscar’s stage.
Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon are the proud parents of twins. Their names: Moroccan Scott and Monroe Cannon. Mariah must love her interior decorating skills: Moroccan was named after the “Moroccan Room” of her New York City apartment. Her daughter Monroe was named after, of course, Marilyn herself.
Wonder if she got a talking-to by her stepdad Ashton? Tallulah Belle Willis, daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, was detained by police for alcohol possession this week. The 17-year-old was allegedly carrying booze while hanging out with a group of minors. Hopefully she’ll wade into more scandalous territory soon. Swilling Jack on the sidewalk is just a short leap away from a DUI…
And finally, just as Mel Gibson is garnering decent reviews as a down-on-his-luck dad in the long-delayed film The Beaver, his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva has dropped her domestic violence case against him. Supposedly she wants to quickly settle the custody case brewing over their daughter. Prediction: by the end of 2011, Mel’s redemption tour will be complete.
