Prince Harry & Chelsy Davy Are Dunzo . . . Again

This time for good?

News of the World, a publication not really known for their ace journalism, is reporting today that Prince Harry and his on-again-off-again girlfriend Chelsy Davy have decided to end their 6-year relationship for good. Citing sources who claim to be friends with Davy, NOTW is reporting that Chelsy has decided to move permanently home to her home in South Africa to begin her legal career … far away from Harry and his royal duties. I mean, take this report with a grain of salt but … it is possible that Prince Harry and Chelsy are really dunzo this time!

PRINCE Harry and his long-term girlfriend Chelsy Davy have SPLIT, the News of the World can reveal. Chelsy is moving to South Africa this week to begin a legal career and has told him they are OVER. The pair have had an on-and-off relationship for six years but friends say the spark has finally gone. Blonde Chelsy, 24, told friends yesterday: “We’re finished. This is a new beginning for me. I want to start my career in South Africa where I plan to spend the rest of my life. I don’t want to live in Britain.” Heiress Chelsy, who is originally from Zimbabwe, looked happy in a stunning red frock yesterday, right, as she drank champagne with best friend Bubble – Olivia Perry – and a pal at Royal Ascot. Bubble supported Chelsy when she and Harry, 25, had a trial separation in 2007. Chelsy sobbed her heart out to her last year too when she got tired of his playboy antics and dumped him. They have not been seen together in public since Harry got his helicopter pilot’s wings on May 7. An insider said: “It was a gradual end to the relationship. It whimpered out. It’s not practical with Harry’s commitments to the Army and his family to be in a relationship with someone in a different country. It was an obvious time for a clean break. The spark is gone and she’s focused on moving back to be where her heart lies.” Our source added: “She was distraught when they split last year but it’s different now. She knows she did everything to make it work” … The insider said: “They are still friends and will always have a special place for each other.”

I imagine it’s not very easy being in a romantic relationship with a prince so none of this — if true — surprises me. That being said, a couple that has been on/off for 6 years has a very good chance of being on again at some point down the line. After all, Prince William and his ladylove Kate Middleton have been on/off for many years as well and they are, once again, back on and rumored to be ready to move in together. While Harry and Chelsy may be dunzo for now, I suspect they’ll find their way back to one another at some point. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

UPDATE: US Weekly is reporting that Harry and Chelsy aren’t dunzo quite yet … but, I still suspect they will be cooling off for a while before they get back together together again.

Rachel Bilson & Hayden Christensen Call Off Their Engagement

Decide to take a "break" from their relationship

Back in February of 2009, Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen announced that they had gotten engaged to be wed back in December of 2008 and then the couple went out of sight, into hiding. It wasn’t until July of 2009 that Rachel surfaced sans Hayden but with engagement bling … and then the couple went out of sight, into hiding. The couple came out of hiding once earlier this year for the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Games but again … went out of sight, into hiding. Today we are hearing that the couple has decided to take a “break” from their relationship and put their engagement on hold. HMMMM. It sounds like the couple are dunzo, y’all!

Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen are “taking a break,” a source tells UsMagazine.com. The two announced their engagement in February 2009. Bilson, 28, flashed a ringless finger to Us on the red carpet of the Take No Prisoners event in L.A. Wednesday night. When asked how wedding plans were going, she said, “No, no plans” and pointed to her bare hand. “No nothing.” The source says the couple — who co-starred in 2008 action flick Jumper — are “taking about a month off” and will then revisit their relationship to decide if they should stay together. The break began about two weeks ago, the source adds.

Yeah … these two … they are not getting married. They’ve been so weird as a couple since they got secretly engaged, I never once believed they would actually make it down the aisle. The couple, RayDen as I love to call them, are never ever seen together. I mean, I’m all for privacy but … when you never see a high profile couple together, there has to be something wrong. The fact that Rachel is no longer wearing the ring seems like a pretty good indication that the wedding is off. It’s always sad when a couple breaks up or, should I say, goes on a “break” but considering how these two never really seemed like a genuine couple to me … it’s hard to feel the loss. What do y’all think … are you sad that RayDen are practically dunzo?

Filming Wraps On ‘Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows’

The end of an era

After almost 10 years of movie-making, the film franchise based on the Harry Potter book series has come to an end … at least, in terms of filming. Production officially wrapped on Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II over the weekend bringing to a close a near decade-long era of film-making. There were a lot of tears on the set after the final film wrapped but there were also a lot of smiles, courtesy of Harry Potter star Rupert Grint … read on:

After nine years and seven chapters, “Harry Potter” has finally met the end. The last installment of the series, “Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows”, wrapped production during this weekend and Daniel Radcliffe has shared the situation, saying at Tony Awards on Sunday, June 13 “Everyone was really devastated. It was really, really sad. Were crying quite a lot.” Actor Warwick Davis, meanwhile, took to his Twitter to inform that Friday, June 11 was the last day of “Deathly Hallows” filming, writing, “The end of an Era – today is officially the last day of principal photography on ‘Harry Potter’ – ever. I feel honoured to be here as… ” The depicter of Griphook the Goblin and Professor Flitwick in the young wizard movies then added, “…the director shouts cut for the very last time. Farewell Harry & Hogwarts, it’s been magic! x …and goodbye Griphook!” The Brit star later stated that his co-star Rupert Grint took his ice cream van to the set on the last day of shooting, tweeting “For the last day on ‘HP’, Rupert ‘Mr Whippy’ Grint arrived in his ice cream van & served up 99s for cast & crew… / …It brought a smile to everyones face on what was a very emotional day. It was a thrill to see a teaser for ‘Deathly Hallows’ too. :)” Davis additionally posted a picture of the vehicle which is dominated with pink and peach colors.

“Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows” is split into two movies, which both will get 3-D treatment. “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I” is due for November 19 release in both U.S. and U.K. while “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II” is slated to be premiered on July 15, 2011. The story, meanwhile, will follow Harry Potter and his two best friends who leave Hogwarts behind and set out to find and destroy the Horcruxes-the secret to Voldemort’s power and immortality.

We knew that filming was nearing the end a few weeks ago when photos from the Epilogue scene of Deathly Hallows made their way to the Internets … but even then, the finality didn’t really hit me. I cannot believe that we’ve enjoyed almost 10 years of Harry Potter films … and now, the last film is in the can (as they say) and wrapped. Fortunately we still have the final 2 films to look forward to … the first one hits movie theaters at the end of this year and the second one gets released next Summer but … the Harry Potter phenomenon is almost completely dunzo, y’all.

The Go-Go’s Cancel Comeback Tour

:(

I’ve got very bummer news to pass along to fans of The Go-Go’s (like me) who were very much looking forward to seeing them on tour this summer on their Happily Ever After Farewell Tour which was announced back in March … the band has issued a statement announcing that the entire tour has been canceled due to injury. Here is the full text of the band’s official cancellation statement:

“It is with great regret that the Go-Go’s announce today the cancelation of Happily Ever After, their summer farewell tour. The tour was scheduled to kick off July 7 at Lilith Fair San Diego, and conclude in Austin, TX on July 27. The band will also be unable to perform live on Good Morning America, scheduled for July 16 in New York’s Central Park. The news comes as a result of guitarist Jane Wiedlin injuring herself after a 20-foot fall while hiking near her home in Northern California a couple of weeks ago. Jane is scheduled for ACL replacement surgery for her knee in the coming weeks, with a prognosis of up to a year recovery time. The band is heartbroken and hopes their fans will send best wishes for Jane’s speedy recovery. In the meantime, tickets can be refunded at point of purchase”.

I am SOOOOOO bummed! I managed to get kickass seats to see The Go-Go’s perform in concert here in LA next month and was really excited to see them all together because I’ve never seen The Go-Go’s in concert. This is just heartbreaking news. I hope Jane is able to recover from her injury, ACL surgery is very serious business. The way that this statement from the band is worded, it seems unlikely that the tour will be rescheduled. Maybe the band will give it one more try next year? It’s impossible to know right now. All we do know is that no one will be seeing The Go-Go’s on tour this Summer … which totally sucks ;(

Miley Cyrus & Liam Hemsworth Are Dunzo!

Jealousy + Argument = Split?

The National Enquirer, that bastion of truth and verity, is reporting today that Miley Cyrus and her live-in boyfriend Liam Hemsworth have broken up in the wake of a “fiery” argument that was sparked by Miley‘s intense jealousy which caused Liam to move out of their lovenest. Now, please remember … we must consider the source but could it actually be true? Are Miley and Liam really dunzo?

MILEY CYRUS’ romance has exploded – and she’s blaming her meddling parents. The Hannah Montana star’s hunk Liam Hemsworth moved out of her new Los Angeles home after a nasty fight that had them hurling bitter accusations at each other, say sources. The breakup comes on the heels of a headline-making scandal – the surfacing of a tape showing Miley dirty-dancing a raunchy lap dance to a 45-year-old producer at a party. Miley’s relationship with Liam began unraveling swiftly when her parents – Billy Ray Cyrus and his wife Tish – blamed the Down Under thesp, 20, for her wild antics. At the same time, Miley became jealous of his film career. “The result was a vicious fight – and Liam bolted,” a friend told The ENQUIRER.

LMAOOOO! As much as I’d love to believe the ridiculous details of this split are true, I’m thinking there is more than just a little imaginative fiction going on here. It should be noted, tho, that since both Miley and Liam are relatively young, it’s entirely possible that they’ve just grown tired of one another and are ready to move on. Whether or not a split occurred due to a jealous outburst is anyone’s guess … but I tend to believe where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Al Gore & Tipper Gore Are Dunzo!

The couple announce their separation via email after 40 years of marriage

Former Vice President Al Gore and his wife of 40 years Tipper Gore have announced via email to friends that they have decided to end their marriage. The email made its way to the political blog Politico, which is how news of the split was made public. Sad but ture, Al and Tipper are dunzo, y’all!

Al and Tipper Gore, whose playful romance enlivened Washington and the campaign trail for a quarter century, have decided to separate after 40 years of marriage, the couple told friends Tuesday. In an “Email from Al and Tipper Gore,” the couple said:

“We are announcing today that after a great deal of thought and discussion, we have decided to separate. This is very much a mutual and mutually supportive decision that we have made together following a process of long and careful consideration. We ask for respect for our privacy and that of our family, and we do not intend to comment further.”

The e-mail was obtained by POLITICO and confirmed by Kalee Kreider of the office of Al and Tipper Gore. Kreider said there would be no further comment … The Gores, who have four children and live in Tennessee, marked their 40th wedding anniversary two weeks ago. The Gores both grew up in the Washington area. They met at a high-school graduation dance and were married at the National Cathedral on May 19, 1970, according to Tipper Gore’s White House biography.

Aww … this is really sad news, I think. 40 years of marriage is a pretty impressive accomplishment … that the couple would decide to separate so soon after their 40th anniversary is just … sad. We may never know the reason for the split (tho, if something of an infidelitous sort occurred we are likely to catch wind of it soon enough) but it’s just a damn shame that 40 years together had to end in an email announcement to friends.

Kelly Clarkson DENIES That She Is Working With Ryan Tedder Again

He said / She said

On Wednesday we learned the shocking news that Kelly Clarkson supposedly agreed to collaborate again with One Republic frontman Ryan Tedder on new music for her new album (even tho, you may recall, she famously feuded with him over a song he wrote for her that sounds very much like a song he wrote for Beyoncé). In a new interview, Tedder claimed that the pair were no longer feuding and that he was writing new songs for her new album. Today we hear from Kelly herself and, as I suspected, she absolutely denies that she is working with Ryan Tedder again:

Contrary to Ryan Tedder’s statement, Kelly Clarkson said she doesn’t work with him in her next studio album. The winner of “American Idol” season 1 simply wrote “no” when responding to question about that matter during a Twitter party on May 28. However, Kelly indeed admitted she is now in the middle of completing her fifth studio effort. “I’ve been working in the studio a lot for this next album & can’t wait for y’all to hear it! New favorite is ‘You’re the only one for me’,” she shared. Other details about the upcoming release are not revealed, but in a message written a day earlier she stated, ” ‘Cleopatra’ is NOT a song on my next record! It was written for another artist! I have no idea how it leaked, it’s a rough demo, unfinished!” Ryan Tedder previously claimed he has put aside his feud with Kelly Clarkson, saying “I’m working on stuff for her next album and am personally over any of the drama between the two of us.”

LMAO!! Yeah, this is more like it. I had a real hard time believing Tedder‘s story that not only has he mended fences with Kelly Clakson but that she also agreed to work with him again on new music. The only way I could ever see Kelly Clarkson agreeing to work with Ryan Tedder again is if she was being forced to do so by her record label. I’m happy to know that that isn’t the case.

Heidi Montag & Spencer Pratt Are Dunzo!

Or so they claim

We don’t get to see much of Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt here on the blog anymore, mainly because their attempts to saturate the public consciousness with their overindulgent and contrived bullshizz had gotten completely unstomachable, but the couple are making news today with news of their split. That’s right, folks … the couple who were destined to rule Hell together have decided to call it quits and break-up. Now, I know what you’re thinking … this does sound like another of their crafty schemes to garner new attention for themselves (which they surely must be missing since no one really pays attention to them anymore) but I suppose there is 0.01% that news of their break-up is true. Let’s just take this at face value and believe for a second that Speidi are dunzo, y’all!

Heidi Montag has separated from husband Spencer Pratt, TMZ has learned. Heidi’s rep tells TMZ, “Heidi is looking to move out due to all the fake bad press that Spencer controls. She’s tired of it and is looking for a place and wants to focus on her acting career.” We’re told Heidi is looking for a new place to live … in Malibu. As TMZ first reported, Heidi and Spencer called the police on Heidi’s mom a few weeks back … so there’s been plenty of turmoil. A source close to Heidi and Spencer tells TMZ the tension in the relationship has been building for a while now … “It wasn’t just a sudden thing.” Now it makes sense … On Tuesday, Heidi tweeted, “I am not Heidi Pratt, I am Heidi Montag.”

Sources tell TMZ Heidi Montag is pulling the plug on her marriage mainly because Spencer Pratt has taken away her friends and family. We’re told she has been complaining bitterly that Spencer is so controlling he isolated her from all her friends. The final straw, however, was earlier this month, when Spencer called the cops on Heidi’s mom when she came a callin’. And, Heidi is saying, she wants to break into acting but says people in Hollywood don’t want to work with her because she has “a loose cannon of a husband.” We’re told Heidi will be renting a Malibu beach house with Jennifer Bunney, one of her best friends. As Heidi herself puts it, “I want more girl time.” Bunney tells TMZ … “Heidi has spent so much time with Spencer and now she wants to be able to spend more time with herself and friendships.” And Bunney says … she and Heidi will be doing their very own reality show which begins filming in July, which will focus on their relationship struggles and … of course … plastic surgery.

You will note that I used a photo of Speidi from last year, before Heidi‘s latest round of plastic surgery. I just cannot look at what she’s done her face and body and take her seriously … at all. You’ll have to pardon my skepticism because it’s completely impossible to believe a single word that is uttered from either Heidi or Spencer. The couple are so good at using every opportunity to garner attention for themselves that everything they say and do is suspect. I mean, a break-up is the only thing that could get them any attention these days.

That being said, and if we are to believe that any of this is true at all … I could see how Heidi might hook up with Jen Bunney to try and pitch a new reality TV show together. I’m hearing that no one, and I mean NO ONE is at all interested in buying a reality show on just Speidi so it makes sense that they would “split up” so Heidi can try and sell a show on her own. Jen Bunney is the saddest, most tragic alum from the Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County days … she would do anything to be back on TV again. This partnership sounds a new marriage made in Hell and it could be real … or just another showmance to garner a little attention. You may or may not have heard … Heidi is trying to get cast in the upcoming sequel film Transformers 3 … might this surprise split be an attempt to get more press mentions in the hopes of scoring that role? Whatever is going on, Speidi are deffo counting on the new attention. What do y’all think … are they worth our caring?

‘American Idol’ 2010 Picks A New Winner

As new Idol is crowned, Simon Cowell says goodbye

And so … America picks a new American Idol to reign over the landscape of competitive reality TV musicdom. Last night, the latest season of American Idol came to a close in a lavish finale episode that featured a host of big name musical acts, a tearful goodbye to the show’s meanest judge and — of course — the revelation of America’s pick for this year’s Idol. Here are a few photos of some of the big name musical acts who performed during last night’s finale ep:


While I am not a huge fan of the show itself, even I have to admit that American Idol puts on some of the most entertaining finale episodes on TV these days. Last night’s ep featured performances by Janet Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Alanis Morissette, Bret Michaels, Carrie Underwood (herself a former AI winner) and more! It was deff worth tuning in just to see these pop stars pay homage to America’s biggest musical popularity contest. But, of course, the entire night lead up to the big announcement. In the end, there were 2 contestants left … Crystal Bowersox and Lee DeWyze. But only one of them could be named this year’s American Idol. And the winner is … More »

The Clock Runs Out On ‘24’

After 8 seasons, '24' comes to an end

And so … 24 comes to an end. Last night Fox aired the 2-hour season finale episode of the long-running action/drama 24 and brought to a close what I consider one of the best television programs to ever air in the US. I’ve been a longtime fan of 24 and even tho some of the more recent storylines have left me wanting more, I have to say that overall the series is absolutely one of my all-time favorite TV shows. I thought it was very fitting that the finale ep of the series took place between the hours of 2 and 4 PM … bringing to an end, once and for all, the last day of Jack Bauer‘s television life:


After the jump, check out a few screencaps from last night’s finale ep and read some of my thoughts on the end of 24. Also, check out an amazing promo video made by Fox that highlights some of the most exciting characters and moments from 24‘s 8 season run … More »
