Spelling sells 150 million dollars mansion to Ecclestone

Candy Spelling has put on sale her home since 1991. According to the Wall Street Journal the property’s original price was 150 million dollars, but it is not known whether the final sale price was kept the same. The buyer is Petra Ecclestone, the daughter of famous Formula One racing boss, Bernard Ecclestone.

Candy Spelling, 65, bought the property together with her late husband, famous TV produce Aaron Spelling, in the early ‘80s. The property had 57,000 square foot and a house where actor/singer Bing Cosby lived in. The original house was torn down. They started building a home in the French Castle style in 1991. The house has a splendid double staircase which was inspired by the residence in the movie “Gone with the Wind”. The house also has a flower cutting room, a screening room, a gym, bowling alley, three rooms for wrapping presents, a china room and a Prince Charles room (which received the name after Prince Charles once spent a night there as a guest.

The Spelling mansion is also known as The Manor. It is situated in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles and was designed by the firm of James Lagenheim & Associates. The 2 story building has 123 rooms. It has a basement, an intermediate level, a second story and an attic. It also comes with four two-car garages, a tennis court and a pool. The house has been for sale since 2009, almost three years after Aaron Spelling’s death.

The house was bought by the daughter of Formula One celebrity Bernard Ecclestone, Petra. The blonde beauty is half Croatian and half English and, at only 22 years old, she already has two princess residences: the latest one is the Spelling mansion. But she already has a house in Chelsea neighborhood. It is a six-story and was purchased with over 90 million dollars. Petra is about to get married with entrepreneur James Stunt and will spend a lot of time traveling between London and Los Angeles. It seems like a good deal to have a castle waiting for you in the USA.

Tori, who confirmed her pregnancy with her third child in April did not file any complaint, nut headed tight to the doctor’s office to check if everything was alright. She tweeted a message about the accident on her Twitter page.

“Wht will it take? Someone dying for paparazzi to stop?” asked Tori on a Twitter message posted a few hours ago. From her message we find out that she was driving her two kids to school. While trying to get away from the stalker ( which apparently was so driven to snap a couple of shots) she hit a wall of the school’s building. “Paparazzi chased me w/the kids 2school. I was trying to get away from him and had a pretty big accident. Took down whole wall of school”, she wrote.

After the accident, the paparazzo “STILL got out to try to get pics”. Some of the other children’s parents came into her rescue, chasing the reporter away. Tori then continued saying she was going to the doctor’s to check on the state of the unborn baby. “I think its just shock” she concluded.

Jack White throws divorce party

After six years of marriage with Karen Elson, Jack White gets divorced and throws a party to celebrate, together with his ex wife, US Magazine reports.

Have you ever heard of a divorce party? We’ve heard of bachelor parties, baby showers, birthday parties, but a divorce party? We’ve heard of prenups, fights over who gets the piano and who gets the dog, lawyer’s huge fees and sex scandals, of love children with the housekeepers, drug abuse and violence, but a divorce party? Well… that’s new!

When White Stripes musician Jack White and British fashion model/musician Karen Elson decided go their separate ways, they made is very amicable. So amicable that they organized a party in honor of them parting ways. Jack White, 35, and Karen Elson, 32, made their announcement through e-vite. They sent the invitations on Friday. All the family and friends were invited. The message said “We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children”. The message also stated that they both feel very fortunate to have shared the six years they had together and for the time they “will to spend both separately and together watching our children grow.”

The couple met on the set where a White Stripes video was shooting. They got married in a canoe on the Amazon River in Brazil, in June 2005. They have 2 children together: a daughter, Scarlett, who is 5, and a son, Henry, who is 3.

So, in honor of the time they spent together in “holy matrimony”, they have thrown a divorce party – “An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family” continued the unusual message.

This is the second marriage that ends for Jack White, after divorcing his former bandmate Meg White in 2000. They were married in 1996 and hid their romantic status for a while, pretending to be relatives. Among White’s celebrity exes, we can mention actress Renee Zellweger and socialite Heidi Davis. White Stripes announced the end of the band this year in February.

Jane Seymour says Schwarzenegger has two more love children

Actress Jane Seymour says to CNN that she heard Arnold Schwarzenegger has two more love children, besides the boy with housemaid Mildred Baena, CBS reports.

You may know best Jane Seymour for her role in the Doctor Quinn series, where she played a country doctor living her life at the crossroads of two cultures: the Amerindians and the new population, the Americans. On May 17th 2011 she was at the premiere of her latest movie, “Love, Wedding, Marriage”. It was then that she told CNN that she knew of at least two more children that the former governor of California has outside his marriage.

“From what I gather” she said “I think there will be lots of information coming people’s way”. And then she reveals something unexpected, making the information available through her first: “I heard about two more [love children] somebody else knows about. I even met someone who knows him well.”

The Hollywood actress told the press that she wasn’t even “remotely surprised” when the couple Arnold Schwarzenegger – Maria Shriver announced their separation after a marriage that lasted two and a half decades. Taking into account that marriages in Hollywood last from 14 hours to a couple of years on average, 25 years spent together is a lot. And when you think of the secrets it’s covered, it seems even more.

Jane Seymour believes that the separation was a strategy of the actor in order to make the first step into the story that would have come out anyway: “The moment I heard it, that there was an announcement of their separation — he was obviously jumping the gun before everyone else told the world of the news.” And she concludes by saying she feels sorry for the children. Even though a few days later she appologized for the comments, she never stated she was lying. She did admit speculating.

Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger publicly announced their separation at the beginning of May. By then, the wife had already left the family household in Brentwood. A few days after their announcement, the cause of their separation was revealed: the actor had a child with the housekeeper who has been serving the family for over 20 years. At the time of the news, both the wife and the keeper were already gone from the house. Mildred “Patty” Baena resigned in January. The boy, Christopher is almost the same age as the youngest child of Arnold and Maria: fourteen. 

Suri Cruise’s impressive shoe collection

For average Americans, the shoe collection that Suri Cruise has may be impressive, but if you have celebrities as parents, a six figure shoe collection may not be so out of order. Hollywood actors Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have spent 150,000 dollars on their daughter’s foot wear, according to the British newspaper, the Daily Mail.

Cute Suri Cruise is a real fashionista. Her mother, Katie Holmes, often dresses her up like a little young lady, with chic dresses, tiny purses and shoes with adorable kitty cat heels. Recently a source told the London Daily Mail that the little girl who turned five is in love with heels and insists on wearing them no matter the place. “The older she gets, the less she wants to wear anything but little heels.” The source said. “Even when she’s going to play dates or walking on the beach, she cries if Katie reaches for anything but a little pair of sandals with some sort of heel” the source added.

Not only that, but her taste in shoes is not bad at all. She prefers top designers such as Marc Jacobs and Christian Louboutin. We have seen Suri wearing sports shoes and casual shoes and we think she look very pretty wearing those, too. The problems with children of rich people start when the children are not refused anything. Some Hollywood celebrities believe that good education includes good manners and a certain degree of modesty.

For example, comedian Adam Sandler is constantly worried about his children turning into spoiled brats. “With the amount of money I have it’s difficult raising children the way that I was raised.”

The couple Catherine Zeta Jones – Michael Douglas lives in the Bermuda with their two children, but they are both against spoiling them too much. They believe the children should first learn good manners. “There’s nothing worse than spoiled rich kids.” Said the Welsh beauty.

Despite the moral code that each of them has, the celebrities all agreed upon one thing – it is almost impossible for the rich kids to grow up and develop the same as average kids.

Clooney’s Girl, Elisabetta Canalis, wants to get married

Despite the fact that George Clooney does not want to be married again, his current girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, believes in marriage and says she will be a wife someday.

Canalis, who is now 32 years old, told Chi Magazine ( an Italian magazine ) that she “will be married” one day. “I am a firm believer in marriage. In the future I will be married” she said in the interview. But the also adds that for the time being she feel ok about her status. “But for the time being, I am happy as I am.” It’s not like she really has a choice, if she wants to be with George Clooney.

The Hollywood beau, who is now 50, was married before, for a short period of time, and believes that he is not marriage material. He got married in 1989 to actress Talia Balsam, which you may know from the AMC series “Mad Men”. Not even the 7 year itch had the chance to kick in. The couple shook rapidly and the union ended up in a divorce only four years later, in 1993. Since then, Clooney didn’t have any wedding thoughts anymore. This January, in an appearance to Piers Morgan Tonight ( airing on CNN ) he was asked by his father Nick if he considered marriage. He started answering by telling the show host “I hate to blow your whole news story, but I was married” and continued by answering his father as well: “Yeah, so I’ve proven how good I was at it, and I just. … I’m allowed one.”

Despite Clooney’s statements, Canalis believes that the press makes up stories about her and her boyfriend and that she is aware of the negativism of the media. “They all say that I spend my time organizing parties and that my boyfriend does not want to marry me and be with me anymore.” She adds that her beau hasn’t given interviews about his personal life since 1999. “Everything that you read is just a rehash of stuff that has been written in the past” she said.

It is not very clear if the Italian beauty believes she will be married to Clooney that she will be a wife to another someday. However, this is not very important at the moment, as she also said that the time for marriage for her is not near, as she doesn’t feel the need to start a family just yet. “My maternal instinct has not kicked in yet. My mother says when it does, it will be like a lightening bolt.”

Why Emma Watson dropped out of college

The rumors said that actress Emma Watson had left Brown College because she was bullied for her celebrity, but she said it’s far from the truth. Here is why she dropped out:

21-year-old Emma Watson said that her decision of leaving Brown University two months ago had nothing to do with what the media has written since the announcement. She was not bullied for her role as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter series. And even if she were, Emma said that she could have handled such a treatment.
In an interview to the Sunday Times Style Magazine she declared that he feels sad about the rumors. “It made me so sad when all this stuff came out that I left Brown because I was being bullied.” Emma said that the opposite was true, in fact and that it really made no sense that she left for such a superficial reason.

“I’ve never even been asked for an autograph on campus” she said. It’s hard to believe that she is not recognized in the campus or that no one admires her work, so the fact that nobody bothered her with asking for autographs proves that the people there really respect her. On another occasion she said to have given a party where there have been invited 100 students “and not a single person put a photo on Facebook.” Even if she were given a hard time, the actress who has been in the branch since she was 9 years old says she could handle mean remarks by now. “Even if I was being given a hard time, I wasn’t going to wuss out of university because someone said ‘Wingardium leviosa’ to me in a corridor, or ‘Ten points for Gryffindor.” Emma said and added “If I can’t stand up to a few people giving me a hard time, it’s a bit pathetic, really. I’ve had so much worse.”

When asked about the true reason that she gave up college, Emma said that she was in denial about who she was at present. “I wanted to pretend I wasn’t as famous as I was. I was trying to seek out normality.”
 
Despite the fact that she tries to act like a normal person, she know she isn’t like everybody else. And one of the consequences is her love life state. Friends told her she is intimidating to guys so they don’t call her. “It must be the circus that goes around me” says Emma, who assures us she, as a person, is not intimidating at all.

Jennifer Connelly gives birth in pool

Actress Jennifer Connelly and actor Paul Bettany welcome baby girl Agnes. Connelly gave birth in a birthing pool on May 31, reports Access Hollywood.

It’s gonna be a crowded place, Hollywood. Much more crowded than the last years, as the Hollywood stars have entered a baby bump frenzy. It could turn to a fashion must by the middle of the summer. If you think this is a joke, let’s remember some of the celebrities, in and even outside Hollywood have been or still are pregnant at this point: Kate Hudson, Alicia Silverstone, Tori Spelling, Lauryn Hill, January Jones, Mariah Carey, Melanie Brown, Victoria Beckham, Emma Bunton, Ivanka Trump … and the list could go on. The fashion stylist should concentrate their haute couture collection to soon to be mothers.

Besides the fashion, the trends, the motherhood will, there is always that side of health state for both the mother and the child. Actress Jennifer Connely has chosen to give birth in a way that seems more natural and less traumatizing for both mother and baby: in a birthing pool. This is thought to be the best pick if the mother wants to give birth naturally, avoiding the risks and the trauma of the cesarean section.

Motherhood is a life changing state for Jennifer, who last year told People Magazine that her priorities have been turned upside down since she has become a parent: “Becoming a mother has made all the difference in terms of learning to take more responsibility for myself and my life. The biggest thing for me is wanting my kids to grow up safely and have happy lives. To me, that’s enough.” Connely said.

Little Agnes Lark Bettany is the couple’s first girl. They already have 2 sons: Stellan, who is 7 years old, and Kai, who is 13 years old and whom Jennifer had from her previous relationship with photographer David Dugan.

Jen and Paul met on the set while filming “A Beautiful Mind”, a movie based on a true story starring Russell Crowe. They dated for almost 2 years and then got married in 2003 in Scotland.

You can see Paul Bettany in his latest movie, “Priest”.

Lauryn Hill Expecting Sixth Child, Rohan Denies Being the Father

Grammy winner Lauryn Hill announced she is expecting her sixth child at the end of her concert in Detroit on Saturday, according to US Magazine.

Lauryn Hill is not afraid of motherhood. Unlike other artists, she is proud of being a mother of five and this taking into account that she gave birth to all of them. And this Saturday she revealed she is going to be a mother again, for the sixth time. During her concert in the city of Detroit, she told the crowd: “I’m going to be taking time off to give birth”.

The singer and future mom for the sixth time first gave a hint on her pregnancy in April, at a concert held at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. She said : “I keep having these children. I don’t know if I’m the most fertile woman in America”. I’ve got five big children, you believe that” and the added “Wait till you hear the big secret, though”.

Lauryn Hill, who is now 36 years old, already has five children with Rohan Marley, 39, who has deep and strong roots in the music world, when you think he is the son of reggae legend Bob Marley. However he is not much of a music person himself. He is the owner of Tuff Gong clothing line and the co-founder of a coffee plantation named Marley Coffee. He appears in the documentary Motherland and his product goes by the name Jamaica’s Blue Mountains.

Their children are Zion David Nesta, Selah, Joshua, John and Sarah.
Rohan and Lauryn haven’t said anything about being married all these years, but Rohan clearly stated he was single on his MySpace page. He has another two children with his college sweetheart, Geraldine Khawly, whom he married. There is no evidence of them being divorced at the moment, byt Rohan stated a few days ago that he was not married. Plus, he added that “nobody is expecting anything”, referring to the rumours of him being the father of Lauryn’s new baby.

Rohan and Lauryn met in 1996. Approximately one year later she was pregnant with Zion. She gave birth to her fifth child in early 2008.

Inside Kate Hudson’s Baby Shower

Pregnant actress Kate Hudson had an incredible baby shower, hosted by other famous Celebs, including Jen Meyer and Sara Foster.

A very pregnant Kate Hudson was the guest of honor at the baby shower hosted by Jen Meyer, Toby Maguire’s wife and 90210 blonde actress Sara Foster. The guests were the actresses’ friends ( other actresses and moms). Among them , there were Courtney Cox, Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie. There were 60 or so guests dressed somewhat formal. Some of them have brought their children, some of them were carrying gifts in neutral colors, like green and yellow.

The party was hosted at a Spanish style ranch in the same gated community where a series of stars live: Camille Grammer, Olivia Newton John and Mel Gibson. The outside decorations included ribbons and signs in blue, pink and yellow, leaving everyone guessing about whether the little one is a boy or a girl.

An insider tells US Weekly that “it was a family-friendly party with kids of all ages running around. Nicole Richie was there with her kids and they were having a great time playing outside.” The back yard was loaded with people playing baby shower games and trying the appetizers. One of the most hilarious games played was the one where the guests would give ideas on what the baby’s name should be if it’s a girl or if it’ a boy. “It was hilarious and got a lot of laughs out of everyone! It was such a fun party — and people stayed for hours.”

Kate Hudson, 32, recently got engaged to Muse rocker Matt Bellamy. This is their first child together and the first child of the singer. Hudson has a seven year old boy, Ryder, with her ex husband Chris Robinson. Even though she wouldn’t give details on how Bellamy proposed to her, she said “It was very romantic!”  Now, all that remains is to see if the baby is a he or a she and how will the lovebird’s wedding will be!
