BB cream is one of those makeup products that just appeared on the American market in the past year, causing every woman here to scratch her chin and say, “Hmmm, do we really need this?!” BB cream is basically a combination foundation/moisturizer/primer and sometimes it’s got sunscreen in it, too.

Two women have approached a British publicist claiming to have more dirt on Prince Harry’s Las Vegas romp this week that gave me the ginger nude pics of my dreams. Max Clifford said two American women who were apparently in Prince Harry’s Vegas hotel room offered him “lots of interesting things: pictures, video, that kind of thing.” Video? Video!
