Kate Gosselin Wants To Try Her Hand At Acting


imnotobsessed - Performing in the opening Emmy skit with Jimmy Fallon and the gang has left an impression on Kate Gosselin. The reality mom admits that she'd like to give acting an honest try:

"Doing that little part in the skit was so amazing for me, being around so many wonderful actors," "I so want to give it a try! I think it is so fun to be somebody else, to get out of me and be somebody else."
 

"It was Jimmy Fallon's personal invitation to have me in it," she said. "I love him. I so love him. It was a lot of fun, the most fun thing I have done in so long."

I thought Kate was fantastic for making fun of her 'Dancing with the Stars' stint like that.

What do you think of her ruffled print dress? It's very feminine, isn't it? How about those blue velvet heels?? One thing I have to say, her makeup always looks flawless!

Slash and Perla Hudson: It's Over!

thehollywoodgossip - Slash has filed for divorce from Perla Hudson, and it could be a nasty one.

According to legal documents filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Slash (a.k.a. Saul Hudson) cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce.

The Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist has two boys, ages 6 and 8, with the former Perla Ferrar. Slash is seeking joint physical and legal custody.


SEPTEMBER PAIN: Sources close to the couple say the breakup of Slash and Perla Hudson is extremely acrimonious. Yes, we know it's August, but close enough!

Slash's representation by Laura Wasser confirms that this could get ugly in a hurry. Wasser has made a living, literally, duking it out in ugly celeb divorces.

The couple was married in October 2001 with no prenup in place. Slash lists the date of separation as July 15, 2010. It is unclear what prompted the split.

Paris Hilton Charged With Felony Drug Possession, Recycles Time-Honored "Not My Purse" Defense

thehollywoodgossip - Paris Hilton was busted with 0.8 grams of cocaine in Vegas this weekend and faces a FELONY charge of possession of a controlled substance as a result.

According to the police report, the officer who stopped the Escalade pulled along the passenger side and smelled "the strong odor of marijuana" inside.

The cop wrote that he noticed immediately the passenger was Paris Hilton, and observed her trying to roll up the window as a massive crowd gathered.

Before Paris Hilton's arrest, she said she was "extremely embarrassed" and asked the officer if she could go to the bathroom at the nearby Wynn Hotel.


At the hotel, Paris told the cop she needed lip balm so he handed Paris her purse and "As she began to open it, I saw a small bindle of what I believed to be cocaine in a clear baggie begin to fall from the purse and into my hand."

The report also says that inside the purse was a "tablet of Albuterol" - a medication used to control wheezing - and Zig Zag wrappers, often used for rolling joints. Paris admitted the Albuterol was hers. That cocaine in there, though?

Paris claimed the purse was not hers and that she had borrowed it from a friend. The cop questioned Paris about the cocaine and apparently, Paris gave an odd answer: "She said she had not seen it, but now thought it was gum."

Later, Paris changed her story with friends, saying it is her purse but had been in the possession of a friend. Paris claimed several cosmetic items in the purse were not hers, but she copped to $1,300 cash and some credit cards.

Paris says the cocaine was "probably her girlfriend's." Suuuure.

Hilton says one of her friends borrowed the purse and "probably" put cocaine inside. Paris says she got the bag back but never checked its contents.

Slightly different from the "It's-not-my-purse" defense used in previous arrests, but similar. "I had no idea the cocaine was there," she tells friends.

"I swear on my life."


 
Moreover, Paris, who's not sweating this at all, is even telling friends, "It could be a setup. Everyone knows how against cocaine I am." She also believes the cops were "star-struck and blew the whole thing way out of proportion."

We'll see if her "friend" backs up this story. Bribes go a long way ...

Jesse James and Kat Von D: It's So On

Jesse James
thehollywoodgossip - Jesse James and Kat von D are an item and not afraid to show it.

No idea why they would be afraid to show it, since he and ex Sandra Bullock have both moved on and the public can think what it wants, but still. They don't!

The pair were spotted hand-in-hand Sunday in Fredericksburg, Tex., near where James and his three kids from previous marriages just moved (Austin).


It marked the first PDA shot of the tattooed Jesse James and Kat Von D, who raised eyebrows with during their weekend trip to Las Vegas on August 15.

L.A. Ink star Kat confirmed the relationship via Twitter a week later, writing "Yes, Jesse and I are dating" - then deleted the post. But alas, word got out.

The tattoo artist, who has been likened to James' mistress Michelle McGee, added that she's forgiven his widely publicized infidelity during his marriage.

"I am a believer that we're all human and we're all capable of making mistakes," she said. "I think if I were to be crucified for my drug addiction three years ago now, it would be hard to live with that. I'm sober now, and it's awesome."

"But I have made mistakes, too. I've got a lot of respect for Jesse and how he handled it," she added of James' conduct during the cheating scandal.

Kat Von D 
Sandra Bullock as also moved on - as a single mom to adopted son Louis, now seven months. "Everything works out the way the universe wants it to work out," she says in an interview with Today's Matt Lauer, airing Tuesday.

Baby Louis is "my little Cajun cookie," the actress gushed.

Glad to see both parties happy, sad as the breakup was.

January Jones: Jason Sudeikis Will Never See Me Naked


Huffingtonpost :    January Jones and Jason Sudeikis have been stepping out together for weeks and attended the Emmys together, but she claims he still hasn't gotten her clothes off.

"He's never seen me naked, nor will he after those comments," January told People at the Emmys. She was referring to comments Jason made last week on 'Lopez Tonight' (scroll down to watch).

Jason confirmed they were dating, and when asked whether he had seen her "naked and everything," Jason first said, "I don't want to get into it." Then: "I'm kidding. I do want to get into it! I do, and I have!"

January and Jason were snapped together at a pre-Emmys party on Saturday. Here they are at the Emmys on Sunday, where they sat next to each other in the front row.

X Factor girl's father blasts: Simon Cowell is too harsh.. no dad wants his girl called a tranny

Mirror.co.uk :    Proud Ian Baker was astonished to hear Simon call Annastasia – who had a breakdown on X Factor two years ago – a “terrible Tina Turner tribute act” after she bravely returned to the show in last night’s edition.

Annastasia Baker

Airport worker Ian, still furious at how Annastasia, now 21, was treated in 2008, said of last night’s show: “Simon used some harsh words. I don’t think what was said was fair.

“Annastasia spent a lot of money on her image and had poured time and effort into it. No father wants to hear his daughter being called a tranny, ­especially after everything she has been through with the show in the past.”

Mr Baker’s outburst comes at the end of a week in which the show has been hit by a series of rows over the mental welfare of contestants and the use of computer technology to tweak singers’ voices.

Last night more than 12 million fans were expected to watch ­Annastasia’s return. The single ­mother collapsed in 2008 while singing ­Gloria Estefan’s Everlasting Love in front of Cheryl Cole and was booted out.

The rejection turned her into an emotional wreck.

But yesterday viewers saw a brand new Annastasia – with a sleek, short, highlighted trendy hairstyle – blast out Tina Turner’s Proud Mary with new-found confidence and verve.

Her performance went down a storm with the other judges and the audience, but Simon told her: “This is like one of these terrible Tina Turner tribute acts. I’ve seen trannies do better versions.” Now Ian, 43, says he is concerned that blunt criticism could destroy his ­daughter’s ­confidence again.

He said: “I just want Annastasia to go the whole way this time and fulfil her dreams. She’s wanted this for so long and she ­deserves it.”

Speaking from his home in Croydon, Surrey, he said: “After Annastasia was on the show last time, the support came to a dead end.

“It was business as usual for the producers and ­judges, and they just moved on to finding a new star. They should have picked Annastasia up – not put her down in they way they did.

“The X Factor is the kind of show that can make or break you. You either go on and have a brilliant career, or alternatively it can destroy you. I just hope that this time around ­Annastasia is treated fairly on the show, and that she is looked after.” Annastasia had just given birth to a daughter, Nevaeh, now two, when she first auditioned.

"But while she appeared to sail through boot-camp with a series of stunning performances, the part-time waitress was secretly suffering from post-natal depression. Her boyfriend had left her to bring up Nevaeh – “Heaven” ­backwards – by herself.

Ian said: “With everything that was going on, it was no wonder she lost her way during her final song and after that she didn’t recover. It was awful seeing her in such a bad way.”

Father-of-four Ian, who is divorced from Annastasia’s mother Rosie, said: “She spent about three months ­dealing with the depression. ­Eventually she battled through it and got back on her feet again.”


 Father-of-four Ian, who is divorced from Annastasia’s mother Rosie, said: “She spent about three months ­dealing with the depression. ­Eventually she battled through it and got back on her feet again.”

After two years of gigging at weddings and pubs, Ian says ­Annastasia finally plucked up the ­courage to audition again. And despite Simon’s criticism last night, he and fellow judges Louis and Cheryl put her through.

Simon has now ordered ALL ­contestants to ­undergo psychiatric ­testing following the outcry over another contestant, Shirlena ­Johnson. The talent guru ­decided that eccentric ­mother-of-one Shirl, 30, who wowed ­viewers last week with her version of Duffy’s Mercy, should be kicked out. He acted after it emerged she had ­mental health problems which the producers were not aware of, but the ­decision led to a backlash from many viewers.

Lady GaGa Agrees to Duet With Scissor Sisters

Aceshowbiz :    People have been lining up to hook up with Lady GaGa, and Scissor Sisters are one of the lucky acts who will hit the studio with the 24-year-old pop/dance singer.

The group's lead singer Jake Shears talked to GaGa about a possible duet when they met at Sir Elton John's White Tie and Tiara Ball earlier this year.

"Jake has performed with huge stars like Kylie [Minogue]. He is desperate for the union with Lady GaGa to go ahead," a source told Britain's Mail on Sunday. "He was concerned Lady GaGa might decide against it but he has been reassured that the collaboration will happen in some way, shape or form."

While waiting for the duet between Scissor Sisters and Lady GaGa to arrive for listening pleasure, fans can purchase Scissor Sisters' third studio album "Night Work" which has been in stores since June. Led by single "Fire With Fire", it becomes their first effort since parting ways with member Paddy Boom in 2008.

X Factor: Insiders fear Simon Cowell’s verbal bashing has gone too far


Mirror.co.uk :    He’s famous for his acid put-downs, but this time insiders fear X Factor judge Simon Cowell may have gone too far.

Concerns are being raised after wannabe Annastasia Baker, who is known to be a “vulnerable” contestant, was put through to the boot camp stage – despite getting a verbal bashing from the music mogul.

Viewers will see him tell her on tonight’s show: “This is like one of these terrible Tina Turner tribute acts. I’ve seen trannies do better versions.”

Annastasia, 21, got through to the judges’ houses stage in 2008 but had a meltdown in front of the cameras after messing up her final audition.

Mentor Cheryl Cole was so concerned about her mental welfare she decided NOT to put her through to the live finals, saying: “You absolutely fell apart in front of my eyes. That would be a worry for me.”

But Annastasia returned to try again this year – and has again been put through by Cowell and fellow judges Louis Walsh and Cheryl Cole.

The controversial move follows a stinging barrage of criticism from Cowell, who then acknowledges that she looks “very, very stressed”.

But last night show sources said the decision could backfire on producers already accused of “exploiting” Shirlena Johnson who was put through then axed over her mental health issues. One insider said: “You have to ask the question whether Annastasia is strong enough mentally after last time.

“If there is even the slightest doubt, they have a responsibility not to put her through.”

Speaking about her problems after being booted off the show two years ago, Annastasia said: “At the time I just didn’t realise I had post-natal depression. If I had I’m not sure I’d have put myself through the X Factor.

“While we were in Cannes I just lost it.”



During her latest London audition, watched by the Mirror, Cowell demands that she take off her shoes after she sang Tina Turner’s Proud Mary.

He also blasts her hair and makeup for making her look like a drag tribute act. He says: “It’s like you’ve come in a costume. It’s all got to be scraped away.

“I want to start with a blank piece of paper.” Annastasia then sings Adele’s Make You Feel My Love, and Cowell he says: “That was a million times better.”

But he warns she will be pushed to her limit again and adds: “This category is very, very tough this year.”

The young mum was put through on the understanding she would revamp her image.

But experts are now questioning the effectiveness of the show’s vetting procedures.

A Talkback Thames spokeswoman insisted last night: “The welfare of contestants is of
paramount importance to us. Annastasia is deemed fit and well to take part in the show.”

Justin Bieber: I Would Go For Miley Cyrus

The Sun :    JUSTIN BIEBER has revealed the job he really wants - the lead role in a remake of classic 1978 film Grease. The titan teen is keen for a film company to revive the 1950s throwback musical with him as Danny, made famous by JOHN TRAVOLTA in the movie.

He said: "It would be a lot of fun. It's been talked about a lot over the years but it would be awesome to play Danny." And he knows just who he'd pick as his leading lady Sandy in the love story set in US school Rydell High, run by the harassed Principal McGee.

He said: "I would go for MILEY CYRUS without hesitation. She can sing, dance and act."

He added: "I'd want some great people to star in it. Wouldn't SUSAN BOYLE make an amazing Principal McGee? We'd just need to write it into the script that she broke into song.

"I am obsessed with Susan. When I look at her original audition it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. I would love to include CHERYL COLE as well. She would look great in the Rydell High cheerleading uniform."

But one person who may not be interested in a revival is SuBo's mentor SIMON COWELL. He produced ITV1 reality contest Grease Is The Word three years ago and it flopped.

Even so, Justin - who last night pulled out of a gig at the New York State Fair in Syracuse because of illness - would need to tap him up for his version if he wants SuBo on board.

For now Bieber fans can look forward to his debut movie - a 3D biopic of his life - due in February.

With Summer Nights drifting away it's something to look forward to.

X Factor sensation Mary Byrne already had shot at fame after winning Irish TV singing contest

Mary Byrne
Mirror.co.uk :    The Tesco checkout worker, 50, who quit singing aged 28 but returned to doing pub gigs in 2005, won TG4 Irish TV singing contest Nollaig No 1 - which means Christmas number one.

But her debut single You'll Never Walk Alone failed to chart, selling 19 copies in the first week.

Dubliner Mary told X Factor viewers on Saturday night that her return to the stage was delayed until 2005 because of her "low self-esteem".

She's now determined to make the most of her second chance at success and is among the early X Factor favourites after storming through to boot camp with her performance of I (Who Have Nothing).

TG4 producer Tom Evans told the Mirror: "She was very nervous when she appeared on our show. She really lacked confidence in her ability.

"If nothing else, winning the contest gave her belief in herself.

"She's had a tough life and I hope she goes far. I think she will do really well if she goes to the live shows."

After her X Factor audition, single mum Mary told the Mirror: "I did the audition without a nerve in my body but afterwards they kicked in.

"Simon told me I was great and Cheryl said I sent goosebumps down her arm - not bad for a girl behind the till in Tesco.

"I've suffered from bad self-esteem and I used to be more confident when I wasn't this size. Since X Factor I've lost half a stone and my confidence is growing. I'm on top of the world."

Friends told yesterday how Mary has helped raise thousands for charity. Musician Matt Dodd said: "She has a heart of gold."

Simon Cowell wants Cheryl Cole to waltz away from her dancer boyfriend Derek Hough - for the sake of her career.

The TV mogul told Derek, 25, the Girls Aloud singer needs to focus on her work and that she would be better off single, it has been claimed.

Simon, 50, made his feelings clear to Derek in a man-to-man chat over dinner at his London mansion recently.

A close friend of Derek's told the Mirror last night: "Derek said Simon was friendly enough, but just very firmly told him exactly what he thought.

"During the dinner Simon told Derek, 'It's nothing personal, I just don't think Cheryl should be spending so much time with you so soon after her marriage breakup'.

After the dinner Derek said to me: 'I just could not thaw him out. He is just so firm about where he stands'."

Simon became Cheryl's career mentor after he hand-picked the 27-year-old Geordie beauty to replace Sharon Osbourne as a judge on the fifth series of X Factor in 2008. He has also supported her following the break-up of her marriage to cheating soccer star Ashley Cole.

"Derek told me Cheryl respects Simon more than anyone else and she knows it is down to him that she is where she is today," claimed the friend.

"She thinks he is wise and emotionally intelligent, which is why Derek is so scared that Simon's opinion could hurt them in the long run.

"Simon told Derek he didn't want to be mean to him, but he just wanted to make sure he did everything in his power to safeguard her happiness and career." The dinner took place in London last month, after Cheryl was struck down with malaria after being bitten by a mosquito on a safari holiday with Derek.

When Derek was invited to dine at Simon's home, he thought it meant the X Factor boss was giving his blessing to his relationship with Cheryl.

But Derek's friend revealed: "Almost as soon as he arrived Simon made it very clear what his true feelings were.

"Instead of being happy for them, he told Derek he thinks right now Cheryl should be single. He noted that she would never have got malaria if she hadn't gone off to Tanzania with Derek.

"Simon thinks she needs a more stable routine. He also pointed out to Derek that Cheryl is reluctant to give up the name Cole - in his opinion this speaks volumes about where she is emotionally.

"He went on to warn Derek of encouraging Cheryl to jump into a rebound relationship and said Cheryl should be concentrating on her career because the next few choices she makes are critical. Simon knows Ashley held Cheryl back.

"What hurts Derek so much is that he knows he is It's nothing like Ashley and he's willing to do everything and more to support Cheryl."

Simon may have reservations about Derek's relationship with Cheryl, but the rest of their friends and family seem thrilled.

"Apart from Simon, everything else is golden right now for them," added the source.

"They are spending every minute of the day together at the moment and loving doing simple things like playing Rock Band and painting.

"They are just so happy. Cheryl has been getting to know his family over Skype and her mum Joan loves him. And unlike Simon, Amanda Holden thinks they are great with each other."

The couple recently had a night out with Britain's Got Talent judge Amanda at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.

The source continued: "Amanda could see that Cheryl is calling the shots and is more content than ever before.

"Cheryl knows Simon is just looking out for her, but I think both she and Derek wish he would just realise they are very much in love and committed to building a life together."

nothing A spokesman for Simon Cowell told the Mirror last night: "Simon is very happy with anybody that will make Cheryl happy.

"Simon only cares about her health.

"He wouldn't dream of telling anyone what to do in their private relationships.

"He just wants her to be happy and healthy, and that's all that matters.

"There is absolutely no way Simon would be advising her and him about her private life. He was worried about her health and is very relieved she seems to be well again."

Taylor Lautner and Lily Collins

Aceshowbiz :    The production of "Abduction" has taken place at the PNC Baseball Park on August 22 and pictures from the set have emerged. In some of the photos taken from wide range, Taylor Lautner is seen having discussion with the film's crew around the stadium.

Angela, who shared the pictures to Before the Trailer, says that they were filming scenes for the movie during an actual game. Few days later, on August 26, she met another "Abduction" star Lily Collins at the same location.

It is reported that the drama thriller is still shooting at the PNC BaseballPark on Sunday, August 29. A source tells the site that the production set at the outdoor venue will last until September 1.

"Abduction" follows Taylor Lautner's character as he discovers the parents that raised him aren't his. When he reaches out to the real ones, he and his girlfriend (Lily Collins) are forced to run for their lives. The film is said to see chain of violent events and enter "The Bourne Identity" territory.

John Singleton directs the action thriller with the script provided by Jeffrey Nachmanoff and Shawn Christensen. Beside tacking the lead role, Lautner also produces along with Doug Davison, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Roy Lee and Lee Stollman. The movie is tentatively set for 2011 release.

Mel B's Husband: Our Marriage Is Over

Melanie Brown and Stephen Belafonte

Aceshowbiz :    Melanie Brown's producer husband Stephen Belafonte claimed his marriage to the Spice Girls star is over. During a recent interview with Britain's Sunday Mirror, Belafonte confessed, "Dude, it's over. Mel's coming back to the U.K. soon but I won't be coming with her."

"There's been problems lately. I don't know what's happening," Belafonte added. The site further reported that the producer has talked to lawyers in Los Angeles about a divorce from Brown. The singer, in the meantime, hasn't given any comment about the claim yet. She also didn't mention about the matter on her Twitter page.

Adding to the separation claim, a friend of Brown told the site, "They've not been happy for a long time and there's been rowing. Mel's been talking about getting out. They're still talking to see if things can be worked out. But she's making plans to come back to the U.K. on a more permanent basis. Stephen hasn't been mentioned as joining her and has been consulting lawyers."

As for the reason behind the alleged split, the pal revealed, "Part of the problem is jealousy. They are both livid when the other one gets attention for another person. They constantly want to know where the other one is... it's been an ongoing problem right from the start."

Melanie Brown and Stephen Belafonte
After dating for almost four months, Melanie Brown and Stephen Belafonte quietly tied the knot in Las Vegas, Nevada on June 6, 2007. Brown has two children, Phoenix, with first husband Jimmy Gulzar, and Angel from her previous relationship with Eddie Murphy.

Rihanna To Release 'Cheers' Instead of 'Only Girl'


Aceshowbiz :    While media has been hyping "Only Girl" as the first offering from Rihanna's upcoming album, new report has just arrived, claiming it's a song called "Cheers" which will be the lead single.

Perez Hilton who first spread the rumor said the song contains upbeat tune just like the rumored description of "Only Girl". It's unclear whether "Only Girl" and "Cheers" are two different songs or they're just the same song with a name change.

Z100 Radio DJ Sharon Dastur has got the first listen to the latter song and she had this to say as quoted by Blazing Swarm, "What I heard blew me away: It's upbeat, happy party music. I think on her last [album], listeners liked the darker stuff, but they didn't love it. This is a return to the fun stuff."

Rihanna herself said nothing about the rumor on Twitter. Instead, she tweeted a picture of herself with a new hair-do.


"HAWAII...Hawaii...hawaii......who wouldn't want to work here for 2 weeks," the songstress wrote. She reportedly stays in the island to shoot her new movie "Battleship" but there is also a word that she might shoot a music video there.

Fans Gather to Celebrate Michael Jackson's 52nd Birthday


Aceshowbiz :    Sunday, August 29 marked Michael Jackson's 52nd birthday. And although the King of Pop had passed away on June 25, 2009, his devotees have proven that they haven't forgotten the super star.

During the special day, fans gathered and paid tribute at the star's grave site at Forest Lawn in Glendale, California. On the memorial parks, Michael's fans laid various bucket of flowers, including red roses, sunflowers and daisies, and also best wishes they penned for the late star.

One fan paid homage to Michael by putting the "Smooth Criminal" singer's photo in a big yellow board with a message read, "I love you Michael. Sending kisses to you up above."

Many of other Michael's fans also celebrated the birthday outside the singer's childhood home in Gary, Indiana. Gary Mayor Rudy Clay also took part at the celebration, telling crowds "The passing of our favorite son, Michael Jackson, is still fresh in our hearts.

A year later, on the day before his birthday, we honor his memory as a great and giving person and as the world's greatest entertainer."



Meanwhile, a day earlier, more than 1,257 people gathered in front of the Riverside County Courthouse to set a record for the most people dancing to Michael's "Thriller", My Desert reported.

However, the mass dance still couldn't fight off West Bend, Wisconsin's national record with 1,820 spectators. Mexico City, in the meantime, holds the world record with more than 15,000 dancers in August 2009.

Confirmed: Beyonce Knowles Hooks Up With Ne-Yo For New Album

Beyonce and Ne-yo

Aceshowbiz :    It seems that Beyonce Knowles is ready to get back to work after taking a break for a while following the completion of her lengthy I Am...Tour. The wife of Hip-Hop Cash King Jay-Z will be hitting the studio with Ne-Yo.

It was Ne-Yo himself who broke the news. On Twitter, the R&B singer/songwriter wrote that beside having a session with Beyonce, he has also worked with Mary J. Blige. He posted on August 29, "Mornin' NY!!! Studio with Mary J Blige last night, Beyonce tonight. I LOVE MY JOB!!!Shout out Jerry Wonder!!"

Kate Moss Ends Fashion Line Partnership With Topshop


Aceshowbiz :    Supermodel Kate Moss is stepping down from her design position at Topshop after three years creating fashion lines for the British retailer, according to a U.K. report.

The Brit beauty has pulled in a reported $4.5 million for her best-selling clothing ranges but has decided to end her partnership with the chain's boss, Sir Philip Green.

Fashion tycoon Green has dismissed reports the split was sparked by a feud with the model, insisting Moss will leave the brand to pursue other projects. Green says, "There have been no dramas and we don't need a new muse. There is only one Kate and we are not looking for a replacement."

"Kate has done 14 collections with us. It has been fantastic for us and fantastic for her, but they take more and more time and she cannot do this full-time any more because she has other commitments." Meanwhile, fashion insiders claim the move comes after disappointing sales of Moss' latest creations.

A source tells Britain's Sunday Times, "Kate Moss' range has not been selling at the same rate that it was and was in danger of running out of steam. At one point, she was doing six collections a year but they cut it back to two a year because they could not sustain it and that is when it started to falter." The 36 year old will unveil her 14th and final collection for Topshop in October.

Hayden Panettiere
Aceshowbiz : Hayden Panettiere celebrated her 21st birthday all over again on Friday, August 27 partying with pals in New York.

The actress reached the milestone on August 21 and marked the occasion with a spectacular bash on the Detroit, Michigan set of her new movie "Scream 4" complete with fireworks and a three-foot dolphin birthday cake.

But Panettiere wasn't satisfied with the festivities and jetted back to her native New York this weekend so she could enjoy a more low-key birthday bash with old friends.

The star was spotted feasting on tacos and burritos and downing cheap cocktails and shots with eight pals at Mexican restaurant Blockheads in Manhattan on Friday night.

A fellow diner tells WENN, "It wasn't a very showbizzy gathering and Blockheads isn't exactly a celebrity hang-out. But Hayden looked like she was having a great time. The party was pretty rowdy, with lots of laughing and joking.

But nobody minded. She was even treated to a rendition of Happy Birthday by all the waiters, who brought her out some cake. Everyone in the restaurant joined in."

There was one conspicuous absentee - Panettiere's giant boxer beau Wladimir Klitschko. The onlooker adds, "She did look like she was missing her boyfriend. She was on her iPhone every five minutes, checking for messages from him."
