St. Cheryl to help charity fight malaria

Multiplatinum recording artist, 1/5 of pop institution Girls Aloud, X Factor judge, L'Oréal spoksperson, sex symbol, style icon, cover girl... and now a charity ambassador?

Earlier this month - Cheryl Cole's first public appearance after battling malaria.

Angel of the North, British treasure, England's rose, Geordie golden girl, nation's sweetheart, people's princess, Queen Cheryl of Cole to help charity fight malaria in Africa.

COURAGEOUS Cheryl Cole is to become a charity ambassador, fighting malaria in the poorest parts of Africa.
The X Factor queen has vowed to help battle the killer disease after it so nearly claimed her own life.

Cheryl, 27, spent 11 days gravely ill in hospital after catching the highly infectious virus on holiday in Tanzania with boyfriend Derek Hough.

Still recuperating but bravely insisting that she will return to the continent, Cheryl is intent on raising awareness of a disease which causes 3,000 preventable deaths in Africa EVERY DAY.

The Girls Aloud star’s first mission will be to Uganda after she finishes the forthcoming series of X Factor, we can reveal. She will meet the families of malaria victims and champion the cause of children whose lives could be transformed by the provision of simple £5 anti-malaria mosquito nets. And Cheryl will tour remote medical centres which distribute precious medicine to curb the disease, which continues to ravage Africa, leaving families torn apart and children orphaned.

Yesterday a friend of the singer said: “It is a very brave decision. Cheryl has thought long and hard about it. This is a life-changing, landmark experience for her. She’s seen how malaria destroys people’s lives and now has first-hand knowledge of just how serious it is. Cheryl got the best care possible when she got back from Tanzania and she is very grateful for it. But she is aware that millions of Africans are not so lucky.

“After what she has been through, you might have thought Africa was the last place she’d be wanting to go to. But the reverse is true.

“She wants to get out there as soon as the X Factor has been wrapped up.”

Edgar Wright: the ultimate fanboy film director

With Scott Pilgrim Vs the World, Edgar Wright is taking another step up from the success of homegrown flick Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz. Now feted by everyone from Tarantino to Spielberg, the British director talks about his unlikely LA life – and how a film-obsessed nerd from Somerset came to be living it.

Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg and Nick Frost at the 2007 National Movie Awards.
Scott Pilgrim Vs the World is Wright's first film without his Spaced collaborators.

Edgar Wright is a fanboy. Hidden under his standard film director's get-up – black trousers, black cardigan, black jacket – beats the throbbing heart of geekdom. Unfocus your eyes, listen to his excited tone as he talks about Gremlins and The Evil Dead, Hitchcock and Landis, title fonts and running gags, and it's not too hard to reimagine him in a sci-fi T-shirt, clutching a raft of graphic novels.

As a teenager obsessed with films, his current life – living in Hollywood, hanging out with Quentin Tarantino, collaborating with Steven Spielberg and dating an Oscar nominee (Anna Kendrick) – would probably have seemed the product of a particularly indulgent fantasy.

But while he might not have the same name recognition, Wright's collaborations with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost – the slacker sitcom Spaced, zombie rom-com Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz, the all-action buddy-cop movie set incongruously in a sleepy Somerset village – have set the bar for British comedy in the past decade. This month he goes it alone with his first US film, Scott Pilgrim Vs the World, and the exciting news is that it's very, very good.

Jason Flemyng cast as Azazel in X-Men: First Class

BFI's Movie-Con III is in full effect in London right now and's man abroad Ben Mortimer has learned that actor Jason Flemyng, last seen playing Calibos in Louis Letterier's Clash of the Titans and in a small role in Matthew Vaughn's Kick-Ass, will be reteaming with Vaughn for a role in X-Men: First Class. That role will be Azazel, who was described as a "teleporter" during Flemyng's presentation for Jonathan English's Ironclad, but who is in fact none other than Nightcrawler's father!

The character first appeared in "Uncanny X-Men" #428 in a storyline called "The Draco" where we finally learned that Kurt Wagner a.k.a Nightcrawler was the son of the lead of an ancient race of mutants, from biblical times no less, who looked like demons and who could teleport by opening portals into other dimensions. In the comics, Azazel had been banished to the "Brimstone dimension" by angels, but left that dimension to father children, one of them being Nightcrawler. It's likely we might just see Azazel in a small role but if he's in the movie, can Nightcrawler be far behind?

Flemyng told the Movie-Con crowd that like Calibos, his character will involve a lot of make-up and that he'll have a tail, which will be added in post-production.


UGGGHHHH. They're using stuff from Chuck Austen's run now?

Sadie Frost reveals some history with Jude Law to promote her new book.

Sadie Frost has revealed how depression ‘weaved a dance of destruction’ through her adult life, and was one of the primary reasons behind the break-up of her marriage to Jude Law.

She writes with candour about her illness and her life with the Hollywood actor in her much-anticipated autobiography, Crazy Days, which The Mail on Sunday begins serialising today in the Review section.

Last month, the book was the subject of a legal action from Law, who issued a 100-page writ demanding that all passages relating to their marriage be removed.

The actor employed a leading firm of solicitors, Atkins Thomson, to try to prevent publication of details relating to the couple’s turbulent six-year union.

Not only did the mention of previous liaisons on both sides cause concern, he is also said to have objected to the inclusion of minor domestic details and photographs of their children. However, the matter was settled last month at the High Court.

A Schadenfreude Post -- Millionaire Matchmaker Can't Find Her Match

"Love: Everyone wants it, but not everyone finds it," says (warns? taunts?) Patti Stanger, in the opening credits of her successful Bravo reality show The Millionaire Matchmaker. Now the matchmaker, with a self-proclaimed "ninety-nine percent success rate," has called it quits with fiance Andy Friedman. Stanger says Friedman's reluctance to have kids was the deal-breaker, but anyone who watches the show knows she was already gushing about and planning her wedding a year ago, when that was apparently not an issue.

Some cynics, who have suffered through Stanger's patronizing yet haunting advice episode after episode, will note a bit of schadenfreude tinged to this news. (We are not amongst this group, obviously!) But for those who truly believed in Patti's tao, this will be a heart-breaking dose of reality, making Stanger yet another loveless, "no-sex-before-monogamy" sucker who falls into that tricky "one percent" of people that even Matchmaker just can't help.

Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox Love Living Together

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox's relationship has reached a milestone – the couple now live together.

"I'm loving it," Dushku gushed to PEOPLE at the 9th Annual InStyle Summer Soiree in Hollywood. "It works."

Actor and former basketball player Fox, who walked the red carpet with his actress girlfriend, says cohabitating has "been great" so far. But besides spending more time with his leading lady, whom he's been officially dating since last October, he says the best part is having his own personal stylist on hand around the clock.

"I look the way I look because our relationship is strong enough that I can put on a bunch of bad clothes and she can re-dress me," Fox explains. "Tonight, I had work on my mind and I just threw something on."

Dushku, 29, says living with Fox, 41, has opened her eyes to his fashion faux pas.

"I never believed he was a bad dresser" until they moved in together, she says. "We're in the middle of moving the clothes. The clothes were at one place and he kind of had to pick from the surviving things that he didn't bring to the house."


'Jersey Shore's' Ronnie Busted Over Parking Tickets

"Jersey Shore" cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro was taken custody by Seaside Heights PD this morning ... and we're told it's all over unpaid parking tickets.


A source close to production tells TMZ ... Ronnie went in to the police station this morning, paid the tickets, and is already home.

Compared to other "Shore" police activity, this one was pretty minor.


UPDATE: A press release from the Seaside Heights PD says, "On August 15, 2010 Ronald Ortiz was placed under arrest for outstanding warrants from two separate jurisdictions ... Mr. Ortiz was transported to the Seaside Heights Police Department where he was processed and later released after satisfying the conditions of these warrants."

Phil Dunphy Narrates Bing Ad

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The next time you're planning a vacation, ask yourself, "What Would Dunphy Do?" Ty Burrell, the man who plays Phil Dunphy the "coolest" clueless father on ABC's Modern Family, is the voice of a new commercial for Microsoft's Bing. The spot, called "Adventures with Bing: The Big Apple," depicts a man planning his entire trip from Los Angeles to New York — booking flights, restaurants and attractions — using only the search engine.

Having Mr. Burrell "Ponce de Leon" New York City via Bing is a brilliant move in its own right, but it's taken to the next level when you learn a bit about the actor's history. Mr. Burrell lived in New York for ten years before moving to Los Angeles in 2009 for Modern Family. Watch the commercial, narrated in Dunphy's typical ADD style, below.

Sure, Bing's "Big Apple" might not be as romantic as Google's "Parisian Love" spot from earlier this year, but it certainly has an understated story of its own.

PEOPLE: Paula Cook 'Humiliated' By Husband's Alleged Affair with Fantasia Barrino

All Paula Cook wanted was to have a happy life with husband Antwaun and their children – but her husband's alleged affair with Fantasia Barrino ruined all that, according to Paula's attorney.

"She is saddened and disheartened by the end of her marriage," divorce attorney Tamela Wallace tells PEOPLE. "She's embarrassed, and humiliated and distressed by the lack of respect that was shown for her marriage by Ms. Barrino."

Pictures surfaced Friday of the American Idol season 3 winner meeting with Antwaun Cook in a local Charlotte, N.C., park – and being filmed by video cameras presumably for her VH1 reality show, Fantasia for Real.

"It's that kind of brazen behavior that Mrs. Cook has had to endure for the last 11 months, until June of this year," Wallace says. "This is something that has caused her emotional distress, pain, anguish."

According to court documents, Paula had planned a wedding anniversary trip to New Orleans for herself and her husband Antwaun, and ended up going alone. While she was there, she was informed that her husband was having an affair with Barrino.

"She wanted nothing more than to have a happy family with her husband and her children. And she's not been able to do that," Wallace says. Her attorney describes Paula, a special education teacher at a local high school, as "just the quintessential soccer mom."

Wallace wouldn't confirm that her client might sue Barrino, 26, under the much talked about "home wrecker" law. But, she says, her client is "weighing her options."

Kimberley Walsh: Ghosts unsettle me

Kimberley Walsh wishes people would stop telling her that her apartment is haunted.

The Girls Aloud singer lives in London with her boyfriend Justin Scott. The couple’s home is located in a building that was once an insane asylum and their friends are constantly claiming the residence is full of ghosts.

My flat is in one of the towers of a converted mental hospital. Everyone keeps saying it’s haunted but I’m a bit sceptical,” Kimberley told the British edition of OK! magazine.

Although she isn’t convinced her home in haunted, Kimberley does believe in ghosts. She once went looking for spirits with her bandmates Cheryl Cole, Nadine Coyle, Nicola Roberts and Sarah Harding as part of a TV show and is convinced she came into contact with a ghoul.

I did go ghost hunting with Girls Aloud once and it was terrifying,” Kimberley said. “We were in an old morgue and I felt something get thrown at my hand. I don’t know what it was, but I didn’t sleep well afterward!

Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue 'told to get nastier' by Simon Cowell

Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue have been ordered by X Factor judge Simon Cowell to ‘grow thicker skins’ and not hold back in the new series of the hit talent show.

The next series of X Factor starts this Saturday but, despite its continuous success, the pop mogul wants it to be better than ever and is employing a host of new tactics to make sure it sweeps audiences off their feet.

His first move has been to tell female judges Cheryl and Dannii they need to stop treating the show like a cat walk and be more brutal with their acts.

Simon feels that the two ladies are often too ‘nervous' to criticise their own groups but this year, he wants to see them being brutally honest - like him – and creating shockwaves.

A source told the News of the World: ‘Simon felt that last year Cheryl and Dannii went too easy on their own acts.

He believes they are nervous to say what they really think in case fans think they are being too mean. They hate being booed but Simon reckons they need to grow thicker skins.’

The source added: 'He's never scared to criticise his own acts. He wants the other judges to do the same and stop holding back.'

Tila Tequila says she plans on suing the people behind the Gathering of the Juggalos -- the concert event she was attacked at over the weekend -- and she'll have the Sheriff of Hardin County on her side if she does.

Sheriff Tom Seiner tells TMZ "things got out of hand" during the show this weekend. Sheriff's deputies were on scene at the time of the Tila incident because they were already responding to reports of a stabbing.

Seiner tells us there is no way to single out perpetrators in a crowd of thousands, but officers will be searching YouTube over the coming days to see if there is video of the incident and if they can ID anyone that way.

The Sheriff went on to call the Gathering of the Juggalos a "nightmare" event and said he'd be glad if the event never came back. Seiner said he felt the event's organizers chose Hardin County because they don't have any type of entertainment ordinance -- meaning no permits are required.

Reps for the event have yet to return calls.

Given the loopy premise–that this girl's DREAM is to dirty dance at a failing LA nightclub–I'd be ready to dismiss Burlesque in a hot minute except that Aguilera has shown the good sense to work with heavyweights Cher and, get ready, Stanley Tucci. What the? Some are dismissing the effort as a soon-to-be camp classic, and the trailer doesn't exactly make me question that notion.

Zsa Zsa Gabor asks for 'last rites' from priest

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Zsa Zsa Gabor asked her husband to call a priest to her hospital bedside "to read her the last rites" Sunday, according to her publicist.

Gabor, 93, is "in very serious condition" at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to her husband, Prince Frederic Von Anhalt.

"It's a sad time for them right now," spokesman John Blanchette said Sunday.

The actress has been hospitalized for most of the past month since breaking her hip in a fall from bed on July 17.

Saturday marked Gabor's 24th wedding anniversary with Von Anhalt, her eighth husband.

She was rushed to the hospital from her Bel Air, California, home Friday night, Blanchette said.

She underwent surgery for the removal of a blood clot that night, a complication relating to her recent hip replacement surgery, he said.

Gabor had just returned home from the hospital on Wednesday, three weeks after undergoing surgery to replace a hip broken in a fall from her bed.

Gabor has been frail and "pretty much confined to a wheelchair" since a 2002 car accident, said Von Anhalt. The crash happened when the car in which she was riding with her hairdresser slammed into a light pole on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles.

The glamorous Hungarian-born actress, the second of the three celebrated Gabor sisters, is most famous for her many marriages. Among her other husbands was Oscar-winning actor George Sanders.

Her more prominent films include John Huston's 1952 Toulouse-Lautrec biopic, "Moulin Rouge," "The Story of Three Loves" in 1953, "The Girl in the Kremlin" in 1957 and Orson Welles' 1958 classic, "Touch of Evil."



Dub-step producer Rusko speaks about working with Britney

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

You mentioned you were in the studio working on some more pop orientated stuff, can you talk more about what you're working on?

Absolutely. After the M.I.A. record which I did in March, we were in the studio for the whole month just intensively working on stuff and the idea with that was to make some of the craziest stuff in the world. We'd make a track and go home and she'd be like "it's not weird enough, it's not crazy enough", so the whole point was to take the music out, take the chords out and strip it down. So after I was finished with that I wanted to work on some really musical, super chords... the complete opposite. So I worked with Britney, T.I. and Rihanna. I'm a musician you know, and I just wanted to do something with big chords, big melodies. When you're making dance music the number one rule is to keep is simple, and as a dance music producer doing electronic music I keep it simple and often have to take stuff out but when you're doing pop songs, you have to put as much in as you can; as much melody and music as possible, so yeah... I've been living a bit of a double life for the past few months.

When you work on a Britney track is there ever a temptation to sneak in something totally weird?

Well the thing is, they could go to the regular people who make hit pop records if they wanted something straight, but the whole reason they came to me was because I make more weird music anyway, so I already have a lisence to be crazy with it. It's Britney, she's got money. If she didn't want crazy she could ask someone who had a massive string of hit albums before, you know?

Bret Easton Ellis meets 'The Baby-Sitters Club': Sugar highs galore!

Who would have thought that Bret Easton Ellis and The Baby-Sitters Club would go together like peanut butter and cocaine-fueled dissolution? Drew Grant of Crushable wrote a pretty impressive parody combining BEE and BSC into something approaching art. She nails the feel of Ellis’ long, stream-of-drug-addled-consciousness sentences, with Pixie Stix and the Beach Boys replacing the blow and snuff films. An excerpt:

“‘Sorry, I just want to make sure we’re um, all clear on who is going to baby-sitting David Michael tonight, because that should be, our top priority right?’ Now everyone was staring at me and I wish I had eaten lunch or at least some of those Jiff/Wonderbread peanut-butter sandwiches Mom made. There was still some organic Farmer’s Market celery stalks that were half-wilting with Hidden Valley in those new melamine plates in the middle of the room, but I was two seconds away from shaking Claudia down for some Snickers or something, or maybe just going to grab the Tylenol P.M. in the medicine closet and my hands were shaking and why was everyone just staring at me?”

Brilliant. It’s nice to see a literary mash-up that doesn’t involve vampires, zombies, or vampire zombies. I hope this trend continues. I can’t wait for the part where little Karen Brewer accidentally falls off the roof because Kristy was too high from Flintstones vitamins and cherry ICEE to notice. I wonder what other unexpected series/author pairings would work. Maybe Chuck Palahniuk’s The Boxcar Children? Michel Houellebecq’s The Hardy Boys? Charles Bukowski’s constantly inebriated Encyclopedia Brown? What do you think? SOURCE

Please approve this, mods. It's a slow news day and the people want a book post.

Aussie Celebs Speak Out In Support Of Same-Sex Marriage

Comedian Wil Anderson, media personality and model Ruby Rose, singer Adrian Li Donna and TV presenter Andrew Denton spoke in support of same-sex marriage during yesterday's rallies"

Lesbian media personality Ruby Rose is the latest big name to add her support by speaking at the national equal love rally for same sex marriage equality in Melbourne.

Also lending star power is singer Adrian Li Donni who will perform, the ABC’s Monique Schafter and TV presenter Andrew Denton who recorded a video message of support that featured at the rally on 14 August.

Ruby Rose is also an out and proud lesbian who started out her media life as presenter for MTV Australia in 2008, later winning the ASTRA Award for Favourite Female Personality in 2009. For two consecutive years, Ruby was voted among Australia’s Top 25 Most Influential Gays and Lesbians. She has since also regularly appeared on a number of hit television programs ranging from Talkin’ Bout Your Generation, Australia’s Next Top Model, and The 7PM Project.

Ruby Rose addressed the Melbourne rally, which kicked off at 1pm at the State Library and ended with an same-sex wedding at the Victorian Marriage Registry in Spring Street.

“It’s really not a big deal,” Ruby Rose told the huge crowd outside the State Library of Victoria yesterday. “It’s about human rights, it’s about getting rid of discrimination, and treating everyone equally. It’s not just about the law, it’s about letting people love.”

Popular Comedian Wil Anderson, Green’s Senator Sarah Hanson-Young and Lord Mayor of Sydney, Clover Moore also spoke at Sydney’s Equal Love rally.

“I have full confidence that one day gay marriage will be legal in this country. I have confidence in this because it’s the right thing to do. But right now Australia has a choice. We can help lead the world, or we can be dragged reluctantly out of the dark ages. Let’s not get dragged kicking and screaming, let’s lead the march,” said Anderson about his decision to speak at the rally.

"I had no idea that Alzheimer's was fatal and was surprised to learn that it's not just an older person's disease…I hope that more people will take the time to learn more about the disease and support research now." – Bradley Cooper

Alzheimer’s is a degenerative and fatal brain disease that affects memory, behavior, bodily functions, and quality of life. There is currently NO CURE.

'Weeds' star Hunter Parrish is regular guy with a cool job

To say Hunter Parrish 's TV family — the Botwin clan of Showtime's Weeds— is different from his real-life family would be a vast understatement.

Which is a good thing, to say the least.

His on-screen relatives include a pot-dealing mom, a corrupt Mexican mayor for a stepfather, an uncle who's in love with his mom and a brother who in last season's finale killed his stepdad's boss with a croquet mallet.

And that familial mayhem is set to return for a sixth season on Aug. 16 (10 p.m. ET).

"My real family is just as weird except in the opposite direction," says Parrish, 23, who grew up in conservative Plano, Texas. "They're not very crazy at all."

Tom Cruise, David Beckham Won't Team Up For ‘Mission: Impossible 4’

For all the fans who were happy that they will get the opportunity to see their favourite celebrities together on screen has to face disappointment as the representative of Hollywood actor Tom Cruise has dismissed the reports which stated that he will be starring with soccer ace David Beckham in ‘Mission: Impossible 4’.

Lately, it was rumoured that Cruise and Beckham real life friendship will be seen in reel life as well. The rumours sparked after the Hollywood hunk praised the sports star for his looks and admitted that he is ‘encouraging him to become an actor’.

However, Cruise's spokesperson while dismissing the reports added that Cruise’s comments have been stretched out by the media.

"This is blown out of proportion. He was asked a simple question on (a press) tour about if he thinks David would be a good actor and he said yes... Then it ran into the ether in a crazy way that doesn't (represent) what he said," said the spokesperson.



Joseph Gordon-Levitt's hitRECord Summer In the City Event will be USTREAMED tomorrow.

Blind Item Reveals (Allegedly!)

Blind Gossip is revealing a bunch of old blind items, so let's get right to it. I hope most of these haven't been posted yet.

This B-List actor is moving up in the world, but is hoping that his past indiscretions don’t come out. Like knocking up a woman and taking off for Hollywood with someone else.

An Ex-Adult Film Actress Talks About Being a Porn Star And the Reasons Why She Left the Industry
Why Would Montana Fishburne Become a Porn Star?

From the day I entered the adult business to the present moment, one question arises in every interview regarding pornography. "Why did you get in the business?" While I was participating in the creation of films, my answers were generally something along the lines of, "Well, I love sex so this makes sense!" Or, "I've always been comfortable with my sexuality, and this seems like a fun way to explore!" And as someone who has interviewed plenty of Porn Stars for my own productions, I've heard just about every answer there seems to be.

"It's empowering!" "I needed the money." "Porn is pretty mainstream, so I'm hoping to cross over one day."

After I left the business, my answers changed drastically, and thanks to intensive therapy, I'm now able to comprehend more fully why the adult industry became my industry. Superficial answer? Money. This is the answer most people seem to like because it's something we can all grasp. However, when you take this superficial answer out of the equation, as money is probably not a motivational factor behind Montana Fishburne's entry into the adult business, the question poses a great gaping hole in our society. Montana, her family and the people who interview her will run to throw answers in that hole, filling it to the brim to make sense of a seemingly senseless act.

Yoko Ono Lashes Out At "Racist And Sexist Remark" During Lennon Press Conference

JOHN LENNON's widow YOKO ONO launched into a vicious rant during a press conference after a reporter asked why she's still living in the apartment block where the BEATLES legend was murdered.

The singer/artist held a junket in Los Angeles on Thursday (12 Aug 10) to promote a new TV documentary about her late husband.

But she pounced on one journalist who questioned why she still lives in The Dakota building in New York 30 years after Lennon was shot at the entrance to the apartment block by Mark Chapman.

She shouted, "I think people say, 'Why are you still living on Dakota?' You know, I think it is a slightly racist remark, and maybe sexist, too. Because I'm sure that many people are living in their own home, that he or she shared with their spouses, even after the spouse has passed away. Especially because they passed away. Because there's a lot of memories, and also you built the place with the spouse. I'm not going to leave that and go to some strange house."

And despite the press conference moving on, Ono refused to let the red-faced reporter off the hook.
