‘Made In Chelsea’ Family Death

Standard

Francesca ‘Cheska’ Hull from ‘E4‘ series ‘Made In Chelsea‘ is mourning after the death of her father. Banker Robin Hull, who was in his 50s, committed suicide in November, and was found dead at his home in Hong Kong after an overdose of pills. His death has only just been revealed to the press this week.

Not long before his death, he posted photos of Cheska and her siblings on his ‘Facebook‘ page. Travel was a regular fixture in his work calender, and his job took him as far away from home as New York.

So far the only comment Cheska has made was to ‘The Sun‘: “It’s obviously a really distressing time for my family. I am devastated to have lost my father but I am trying to get on with my life.”

Cheryl’s S/S 2012 Shoe Collection

Standard

Naughty little Cheryl Cole has released some pictures of new shoe designs from her upcoming S/S 2012 collection for online shoe emporium ‘Stylistpick‘ without their permission!

Alongside the image of 2 wedge-style pairs, she wrote: “Ok so no-one is in the office @stylistpick and I’m not sure if I’m allowed to do this but I can’t help myself… LOOK AT THESE beauties I have coming for the S/S collection.”

A representative of the company has since said: “We weren’t planning a sneak peek of the collection. But we are really pleased that Cheryl, like us, is so excited about it and with the really positive response from her fans.”

The S/S 2012 collection will follow on from the hugely successful capsule collection trialed at the end of last year, which featured just 8 pairs of heels and boots.

In a totally different career move, it’s rumoured that close friend ‘Will.I Am‘ has landed her a spot performing the debut single from her new album on new BBC show ‘The Voice‘.

Cheryl should be releasing her single when ‘The Voice‘ is on TV so it makes sense to combine the two. Cheryl’s manager ‘Will.I.Am‘ is obviously a judge on the show so he’s already been talking to producers to get the ball rolling.”

My absolute favourite dress of the evening was Kaley Cuoco‘s mint coloured feathered-effect one by Romona Keveza, which was worn perfectly with a bohemiam plait.

Christina Aguilera Is A Bloody Mess

Standard

Someone grab her some Tampax!

I’ve heard of singers like Fergie from the ‘Black Eyed Peas‘ wetting themselves on stage before, but Christina Aguilera has taken things to a new extreme by getting her period onstage.

She was halfway through her tribute performance of ‘At Last‘ at Etta James‘ funeral before she realised that there was blood slowly trickling down her leg. She tried to sneakily rub it off with her other leg, but failed.

Her fans are claiming that it was just a bit of badly applied fake tan from an earlier spraying session, but I think it’s most likely to be that she just cut her leg whilst shaving, and didn’t notice. Embarrassing for her either way really, and the performance will definitely make your ears bleed.

Demi Moore Leaves Hospital

Standard

Demi Moore was released from LA‘s ‘Sherman Oaks‘ hospital on Friday after a 4 night stay. She was hospitalised after smoking some sort of drug, rumoured to be ‘Salvia‘, when she began to lose consciousness.

In a leaked ‘LAPD‘ phone call, a friend of the actress describes Demi as being “semi-conscious, barely”. She suffered a seizure at a birthday party she was hosting at her home, and although she was reportedly treated for anorexia and substance abuse, friend Patty Jenkins says she is recovering.

Patty told ‘E! Online‘: “I just saw her and she’s doing great. I think she’s doing much better than it’s made out to be. Demi is awesome and so strong. I also hate when people make it a bigger drama than what is going on. She’s great.”

The star’s friend can be heard on the tape of the call saying: “We need an ambulance here as soon as possible. Why is an ambulance not on its way right now? She smoked something. It’s not ‘Marijuana‘, but it’s similar to, it’s similar to incense, and she seems to be having convulsions of some sort. She’s been having some issues lately with some other stuff, so I don’t know what she’s been taking.”

Coincidentally, ex Ashton Kutcher returned to LA on Friday after a holiday to Brazil.

Her mini melt-down means that she will no longer be able to take the role in biopic ‘Lovelace‘, and Sarah Jessica Parker is said to have been lined up as her replacement.

Nicola Roberts & Rihanna’s TV Show

Standard

Fashion lovers Rihanna and Nicola Roberts have joined forces for a new ‘Sky Living‘ show which will celebrate the British fashion scene, and the influence that popstars have on high street trends.

Over the course of 10 weeks, contestants will be challenged by Rihanna and Nicola to create outfits for a string of musicians and celebrities. The ultimate prize is the chance for the winner to design a unique stage outfit for Rihanna‘s ‘Wireless‘ performance in Hyde Park, July 2012.

Executive Producer Rihanna says: “I’ve always had a great love of fashion. It’s a constant source of inspiration in my life, and is a big reason why I’ve grown into the person and artist I am today. I have been very fortunate to work with some truly amazing designers and stylists throughout my career, and they have been instrumental in making sure my creative vision reaches the stage. I am excited to follow the journey of our aspiring contestants and see how their individuality influences their efforts during the course of the show.”

Nicola added: “I was so flattered when Rihanna asked me to work with her on this show. I’m so excited for us to get started on finding a new up-and-coming British designer who just needs a chance – a little bit of help in getting their skills noticed. There are talented people, undiscovered because they don’t have the means, or their circumstances are too far away from the fashion world. This show is here to discover those people and give them a shot. I’m looking for someone who can think outside the box, and who isn’t going to give up at the first hurdle. Ultimately, someone who can’t go ‘undiscovered’ anymore. I love both Rihanna‘s music and her style. I love that she isn’t afraid to try new things. Her style is personal and that’s something I’m a fan of. You can see a genuine love for fashion in her. She is definitely one of my style icons.”

As for a launch date for the currently nameless show, all that we’ve been told so far is ‘Summer 2012‘!

Harry & Caroline Split (Already)

Standard

One Direction‘ lovers across the country will be happy to hear that Harry Styles and Caroline Flack have split up, just 3 months after getting together. Their 15 year age gap is most likely the main cause for their break-up, in addition to the death threats and generally poor reception from the public that she has received because of the relationship.

Harry tweeted this morning: “Please know I didn’t ‘dump’ Caroline. This was a mutual decision. She is one of the kindest, sweetest people I know. Please respect that.”

“Lots of really sweet messages today.Thanks guys! Big hug with my new gloves,” Caroline wrote just now.

A friend of his claims: “Harry is being realistic about the whole thing. He’s going off to America in a couple of days and he wants to be able to commit fully to making the band a success in the States. They’ll be back for the ‘Brits’, but all in all they’ll be away for 2 months. It’s a long time to be apart especially with so much going on Harry’s young. He’s just not ready for a long-distance relationship. He really likes Caroline and he doesn’t want to hurt her. But he doesn’t want to be tied down.”
