CAMILLA Parker-Bowles blew her chance to wed Prince Charles in the late 1960s because she wasn't a virgin, according to a new documentary. "Queen Camilla," airing tomorrow in Britain, reports the Duchess of Cornwall lost her innocence at age 17 at the end of a debutante ball. In continuing her affair with Charles while he was married to Diana, she followed in the footsteps of her great-grandmother Alice Keppel, who was the mistress of Edward VII. Windsor-family expert Gyles Brandreth says, "[Camilla] comes from a family that has, in the best sense of the word, been servicing royalty for many generations."
May 31, 2007 -- IN a sob-filled audio tape obtained by Page Six, "American Idol" princess Paula Abdul is captured having a meltdown during a recent conference call.
Abdul, who seems to be talking to a group of publicists at some point during the last week, trashes her former rep, Howard Bragman; reveals she's dealing with challenging medical problems; and states she's had enough of the terrible treatment she receives from the "people who are supposed to be taking care of things."
She sobs on the tape: "I've never been treated this way and I've never seen anybody treated this way. This is just too much to stomach." Abdul is assured by those hearing her wails, "You will be treated better starting right now."
"I've been going through tremendous amounts of a difficult time," said Abdul, who recently fibbed to her fans when she said she hurt her nose tripping over her Chihuahua. (We reported the real story last week - that Abdul threw a glass against the wall and a shard of it cut her face.)
Ranting about Bragman, who apparently didn't appreciate her enough, the petite former pop star says: "I do a call-in every week for OK! Magazine on 'American Idol.' Because of my brilliant job, they want to do a cover on me. I'm being told by Howard Bragman that I'm too old and no one will ever want to do a cover.
"Howard Bragman on Monday - he did some disgusting behavior. I had to go to Jimmy Kimmel," Abdul is heard sobbing, "with no publicist there. [Abdul appeared on Kimmel's show on May 15.] I go on with no publicist there and I pay this man . . .
"I don't understand how this man can call me a whining bitch. I've never in my life been called a whining bitch and a loser."
When we asked Bragman when he stopped working with Abdul, he said, "I'm not going into it," and added, "I'll stand by my reputation if she'll stand by hers." Her current rep, David Brokaw, did not return calls.
