Two of the most painful hours I have endured as a parent were spent watching a Kevin James film. I have given birth at home twice and nothing prepared me for an outdoor viewing of TheZookeeper.
Admission was free, so technically I have not contributed to the James empire. One so vast that it has enabled him to buy a, 18.5 million dollar house in Palm Beach, Florida.
According to gossipextra.com, the almost 13,000 square foot house boasts 8 bedrooms. 9 bathrooms and a meditation room. The 2-acre estate is a waterfront property located in the city of Delray Beach.
Despite my lack of appreciation for his artistic efforts, I’m not mad at Kevin James. Anybody who shows up to support The US Open in Flushing and has a daughter named Shea, is alright by this Brooklyn Baby.
I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t advise you of some new photos of Kate Middleton from her nude sunbathing holiday with William. Yeah. See what I did there? I made it sound as if I have some kind of duty to inform you about (gulp) bottomless pics of love Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge taken with a crazy-huge lens unbeknownst to her.
The photos which were seemingly copied from a spread in the Scandinavian magazine Se og Hør (which translates to See and Hear), are on Egostastic.com. Someone needs to start a PoorKate.com. Seriously.
“We are a leading gossip magazine in Denmark, and it is my job to publish them,” Kim Henningsen said, via the Belfast Telegraph.
Taken with a very long lens the grainy images show Will slathering Kate’s back and bottom with lotion as she pulls down her bikini.
A rep for the royals declined to comment, telling E! News, “Our stance is the same as before—we aren’t commenting on any further legal action save to say all proportionate responses will be kept under review.”
Scandalous Kate pics could fetch $1 million.
In other words, Denmark is on notice.
Ten days ago, lawyers for Will and Kate obtained an injunction against Closer for breach of privacy. The magazine was ordered to pull the topless pics and hand over all digital copies. A French court has also launched a criminal probe into whether the tabloid and the photographer should face prosecution. Separately, the editor for the Irish Daily Star was suspended for giving the go-ahead for his paper to publish some of the topless images.
I know. All y’all care about is the LINK. Fine. Go! I’ll spare you my alternately outraged yet perversely curious rant.
One of DiC‘s husbands (whom both DivaJulia and I agree on) is celebrating a birthday. Director David Fincher is turning the big 5-0and I thought we’d highlight some of his impressive work.
Known for being behind the camera for films like ‘Seven,’ ‘Fight Club‘ and ‘The Social Network,’ which earned him a Golden Globe and Bafta for Best Director, he started out his career doing music videos. His first was Jermane Stewart‘s “We Don’t Have To Take Our Clothes Off” all the way back in 1986.
A couple of years later, David would work with Madonna for the first time with “Express Yourself,” inspired by Fritz Lang‘s 1927 silent epic ‘Metropolis.’
The two would work together again for “Vogue” and “Oh Father.” I wonder if he would ever put her in one of his movies.
It seems 1990 was possibly his biggest video year ever, with “Vogue,” Aerosmith‘s “Janie’s Got A Gun, ” Billy Idol‘s “Cradle Of Love” and Don Henley‘s “End of the Innocence” dominating that year’s MTV Video Music Awards in nominations and wins.
George Michael‘s “Freedom! ’90” featuring Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell and a number of other Supermodels was nominated for Best Direction, Cinematography and Editing at the 1991 VMAs. Oh, yeah.
As the 90s went on and Fincher focused more on movies and commercials; he directed fewer videos, but there were some standout clips like TheRolling Stone‘s “Love Is Strong” featuring the band and some gigantic models stomping all over NYC. His last was Nine Inch Nails‘ “Only“, and of course he and Trent Reznor would later work together again when Finchy asked El Rezto score ‘The Social Network’ and ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo.’
How about some Bonus Brad Pitt, because we all know Brad is David’s favorite!
Lest we forget, the epically creepy and dank opening and closing sequences in the brilliant film Se7enwith Nine Inch Nails AND David Bowie. This film is like a warm blanket on a cold night…that may just electrocute us if we’re not careful. Oh, but the prickly fun of it all…Closer Remixed and The Heart’s FilthyLesson, respectively set the tone, and then leave us in a heap on the basement floor. Begging. For. More.
