Jewelry Superstitions: Why Wearing Diana’s Ring May Be A Bad Omen For Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton‘s engagement ring just so happens to be a hand-me-down from the late Princess Diana. Although this family treasure is very dear to Prince William’s heart, the superstitious among us would agree that Kate should never have accepted it. Why? Well, because it’s widely believed that jewelry can be cursed. Take the Hope Diamond, for example, which many believe has been cursed since it was stolen in 1642. Since then, tragedy, injury, or even death has befallen all those who have come in contact with it, including Marie Antoinette. Even if you don’t believe that jewelry can be cursed, I always heard the old wives’ tale that engagement rings are supposed to carry the energy of the marriage from whence it came. Meaning it’s bad luck to inherit a ring from an unhappy marriage. So essentially Kate is wearing the ring of a troubled princess who had a very bad marriage, not to mention a tragic end. If I were Kate, I might have hoped for something with a little bit less bad ju-ju. [Hottnez]

Jasmine Waltz Says David Arquette Didn’t Cry After Sex

“It was quick and painless, nothing exciting. If he did cry, he didn’t do it in front of me.”

Jasmine Waltz, who slept with David Arquette, responds to his claim that he cried after sex. David certainly sounds like a dud in the sack. Ouch. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Emma Watson Accidentally Asked For A Condom In Class

“I had no idea, and please excuse me, that you guys call a condom a rubber. My version of a rubber is like an eraser, so I’ve done that. I’ve very loudly asked for a rubber … that was embarrassing.”

Emma Watson tells David Letterman about how British slang got her in trouble at Brown. I’m sure the college boys are utterly charmed when she asks for a “plastic,” “rubber,” or a “snog.” [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

8 Politicians Who Have Appeared On The Silver Screen

Former President Bill Clinton is taking on a new role … as an actor. Clinton has signed on to make a cameo appearance in “The Hangover 2,” which is filming in Thailand as I type. Wait a second. Does that mean Bill has taken on the role originally slotted for Mel Gibson? If so, Zach Galifianakis got himself a serious upgrade. [Sorry, that role went to Liam Neeson. -- Editor] [People]

Ryan Seacrest Is SO Great That Julianne Hough Is Embarrassed

He’s phenomenal … he’s really romantic. He’s not even in town and I got in my car and there are flowers everywhere! And for my birthday, same thing … like, flowers everywhere. I was almost embarrassed. You walk in and you’re like, ‘Is this my room? I don’t even know.’ I’m kind of embarrassed.”

Julianne Hough gushing about BF Ryan Seacrest on “Ellen.” Nothing to be embarrassed about, Julianne—sounds like you just landed an awesome dude. Although, I might be slightly embarrassed too if Ryan were my boyfriend. But I suppose the flowers may help me get over it. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Carrie Underwood’s Not Ready To Have Kids 5 Minutes After Getting Married

“The other night, [Mike] was with some friends and their kids, and he sent me a funny text saying, ‘Watching my friend’s kids … Let’s wait a while.’ I didn’t grow up around kids, and I hope those motherly instincts are in me … I’m sure they are, but I don’t know what to talk about with a 4-year-old!”

Carrie Underwood sounds like she’s not ready for rugrats, in the December issue of In Style. No shame in waiting, considering she just got married. Leave the girl alone! I wish the press would come up with some new things to bother famous women about other than engagement, marriage or babies. It’s old already. [People] Keep reading »

Gay Student Defends Teacher In Trouble For Disciplining Bullies

I love this! Watch 14-year-old openly gay student Graham Taylor as he eloquently defends teacher Jay McDowell, who received disciplinary action for removing a student from class for making anti-gay slurs. Wait. Isn’t that what teachers are supposed to do? I guess not in Howell, Michigan—headquarters of the KKK. Graham calls the bigotry against gays a “silent holocaust,” which drove him to attempt suicide at age 9. Uh, I have a dream … that this kid will run for public office someday. He’s got my vote. [The Daily What]

[Editor's Note: We are striking the KKK comment from the record. It was in reference to the video. Our apologies.] Keep reading »
