Things You Might Have Missed In IRON MAN 3 Trailer + Kevin Feige Comments On The Ten Rings

title or description

There is a lot to talk about the first official trailer for the Shane Black-helmed Iron Man 3, which shows Tony Stark being left truly on his own against a powerful enemy. The sombre tone and intense moments from the trailer suggest that we will see something a little bit different this time around. While we have all seen the trailer (probably dozens of times by now), let's take a look at some of the scenes that are quite interesting and that you might have missed. Possible spoilers below, so in case you don't want to know anything, don't click.

Hot actress Judi Dench gets neck vajazzled

Being a 77-year-old Dame, she wouldn't be the world's most likely candidate for a vajazzle. But Judi Dench showcased a new take on the Essex trend as she attended the world premiere of new James Bond movie Skyfall at London's Royal Albert Hall on Tuesday night.

Opting for a gem-encrusted 007 'neckjazzle', the actress certainly stood out from the crowd thanks to her quirky outfit addition as she walked the red carpet.

President Obama Talks Politics, Trump and Baseball on Tonight Show

Two weeks before Election Day, President Obama visited Jay Leno on NBC’s “Tonight” show to tell Halloween trick-or-treaters that they can expect to get candy if they knock on the White House door — adding that anyone from Ohio can expect extra-large Hershey bars.

Leno asked the president what the deal is between him and real-estate mogul Donald Trump — who stars on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”

Earlier Wednesday, Trump offered to make a $5 million contribution to Obama’s charity of choice if the president would release his college transcripts and passport records. “Frankly, it’s a check that I very much want to write,” Trump said in a YouTube video. (Trump has questioned whether Obama’s birth certificate issued by the state of Hawaii is legitimate; the White House subsequently released the long-form copy of Obama’s birth certificate.)

Obama told Leno that the beef dates back to when he and Trump were growing up in Kenya.

“We had constant run-ins on the soccer field,” Obama joked. “He wasn’t very good and resented it. When we finally moved to America, I thought it would be over.”

Lifetime Television To Debut Reality Show On Reverend Bob Larson, Excorcist

Reverend Bob Larson is the self-proclaimed "world's foremost expert on cults, the occult and supernatural phenomena." He has appeared on Oprah, Larry King Live, CNN's Anderson Cooper and beginning October 31, he'll have his own reality show on Lifetime which will document the work he's most famous for: exorcisms.

Larson claims that he has performed over 15,000 exorcisms and has written numerous books, like "Larson’s Book of Spiritual Warfare," which is "an encyclopedic reference about demons, the devil, and deliverance," and "Demon Proofing Prayers."

A clip of Larson's alleged exorcist handiwork (above) is now going viral. But this is no garden-variety demon purging. Oh, no! In this particular video, which was uploaded to YouTube on November 26, 2011 by a user named EpicGodMan, Larson supposedly comes face to face with a gay demon.

While presiding over a grunting, moaning, yet otherwise normal looking middle-age man, Larson commands, "I loose him from the curse of homosexuality…" and informs the audience of onlookers, "The worst thing in the world for filthy stinking sex demon to say is 'the holy spirit' -- they hate it."

LYLAS to change name?

An all-girl singing group featured on "X Factor" is scrambling to change their name ... all because they were threatened by Bruno Mars' sisters ... TMZ has learned.

Bruno's 4 female siblings make up the girl band, The Lylas ... an R&B singing group that also happens to have a major modeling deal in the Philippines. Translation -- they're super hot.

Problem is ... there's another group of singing chicks calling themselves The Lylas ... and they're currently kicking ass on "X Factor." In fact, Simon recently chose them to compete on his team.

When Bruno's sisters found out about the other band of Lylas ... they were pissed ... and trashed the "X Factor" Lylas all over the web, claiming the new Lylas hijacked their name. Sources connected to "X Factor" tell us ... the contestants were shocked by the accusations ... and insist they weren't trying to hijack the name. They simply didn't realize someone else had already laid claim to it.

Now, we're told ... the "X Factor" girls are getting ready to wave the white flag -- with one source telling us they're already brainstorming ideas for a new name.

Taylor Swift: Recalling my exes makes me feel so bad about myself

"Every time I come up here you put a different dude up on the screen. It just makes me really question what I stand for as a human being. "

Ellen DeGeneres loves teasing Taylor Swift about her ex-boyfriends! On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 22-year-old country singer chats about her new album, Red, which features more breakup hits about her ex-boyfriends.

Much to DeGeneres' dismay, Swift vehemently denies she ever dated Zac Efron -- despite the adorable duet they performed together during her last appearance on the show. "There's nothing really about Zac on the CD . . . because we didn't date," the singer said.

In order to try and determine who her new song, "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together," is about, DeGeneres decided to show a slideshow of Swift's rumored exes. She then asked Swift to ring a bell for three pictures, so the audience could narrow down who it is about.

"But I don't want to! I don't want to!" Swift shouted. "Because they'll send me angry emails and I don't want to get them!"

She flat out denied dating Efron, Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher when their pictures appeared, but got uncomfortable when photos of Taylor Lautner, Cory Monteith and John Mayer flashed on the screen.

Tori Spelling's Lavish Birthday for Daughter Hattie


Tori Spelling held an "Alice in Wonderland"-themed birthday bash for daughter Hattie -- even though the young girl probably isn't even old enough to remember the lavish affair!

The former "Beverly Hills 90210" star celebrated Hattie's first birthday last weekend with a big tea party full of costumes and Disney entertainers, including actors dressed as Alice and the Mad Hatter.

Tori, husband Dean McDermott, kids Liam, Stella and Finn all dressed up for the occasion as well -- with the newborn son in costume as a "Drink Me" bottle.

How cute, right?

Candy Spelling was there as well, enjoying her time as a grandmother to all of Tori's kids.

Do you think it's a bit much to celebrate a one-year-old's birthday with such a big party?

Ronan's mother Maya got to meet Taylor Swift and wrote a blog about it

Ronan. These past few days have been a whirlwind in the most amazing way. I took the red-eye on Saturday with Melissa to New York. We arrived at about 4 a.m. east coast time and a car from The Katie Show was waiting to pick us up. We were so tired, but we were determined to stay up until midnight to download Taylor’s new album from iTunes. We kept falling asleep. Fernanda would shoot up out of bed, “10 more minutes!” and fall back asleep. I dozed off and woke up right around midnight. “It’s time! We can download it now!” I felt like teenagers who were having a slumber party, waiting to get the new album of our most favorite artist. We both downloaded “Red,” with one eye open and quickly fell back asleep. We had to be up really early in the morning to be at the Katie Couric show.

Soon, we were swept off to take our seats in the studio audience. We had great seats and were treated like gold. For the first time, I was going to see Taylor and I had no idea how I was going to hold it together.

Soon out walked Taylor herself, in the most adorable little goldish/yellow dress and sweater. She looks like Bambi. So tall, graceful, and young with a little bit of awkwardness about herself as if she truly does not know how beautiful she is.

Taylor Swift, Conor Kennedy Split!

Let the songwriting begin.

After an intense couple months of dating, Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy have broken up, a close friend of the country singer confirms exclusively to Us Weekly.

"They quietly parted ways a while ago," the friend explains of the "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" crooner, 22, and the high school senior, 18. "It was just a distance thing. No hard feelings. They're fine."

First spotted with the six-time Grammy winner at the Kennedy family compound in Hyannisport, MA in July, Conor is the son of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and the late Mary Kennedy.

But despite Swift's speedy summertime bond with her new man and his brood, the romance had to take a backseat to Swift's work duties. (Her new album, Red, was just released this week with record-breaking sales and widespread critical acclaim.)

"It's been over a month since they've even seen each other," the friend explains. "With her promotion for Red, she has no time off until the end of the year."

Swift's other exes include Jake Gyllenhaal, Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner and Cory Monteith.

Will Bryan Singer Replace Matthew Vaughn On X-MEN: FIRST CLASS 2?

X-MEN: FIRST CLASS 2 is doing the director shuffle!

Deadline reports that Matthew Vaughn, the man who directed FIRST CLASS, is no longer attached to the sequel. That's a bummer, he did so well with the first one. But here's where things get even more surprising: Fox's top choice to replace Vaughn is Bryan Singer. That's right, the man who helmed the original X-MEN and its follow-up X2 might come back home to the rebooted franchise.

You know what they say: if you love something, let it go. If it comes back to you, it was truly meant to be.

Deadline doesn't say why Vaughn is stepping down but apparently he's not leaving completely, he'll stick around as producer. He's already worked on a treatment for the film so he'll be involved, just not calling the shots. Deadline says he's already setting up another project at Fox: an adaptation of the Mark Millar comic book SECRET SERVICE. So another comic book movie just not this comic book movie.

Singer coming back would be a surprising choice just because he's already been there, done that. Obviously he's a good fit for the series and would make X-MEN fans happy. His first two superhero films, especially X2, are beloved. His take on Superman however? Not as much. I'm sure he'll be welcomed by X-MEN fans with open arms.

If this comes to fruition, Fox will have to work fast to make this happen. X-MEN: FIRST CLASS - DAYS OF FUTURE PAST is scheduled to open July 18, 2014 so things will get moving soon.


In Things I Am Here For News, 'Wanted 2' Still Happening

Fans of the 2008 action movie Wanted have been waiting patiently for word on a sequel since the film hit big at the domestic box office (grossing nearly $134.5 million), but now it sounds like Wanted 2 may finally on the horizon.

Talking to Hollywood.com about his new novel spy novel, The Right Hand (set for release in November), Wanted screenwriter Derek Haas revealed that he and his writing partner Michael Brandt are readying to deliver their second draft of the script. Arriving at this point nearly half a decade later was a bumpy ride Haas was happy to take.

I never read the comics and I think this is a totally original story, but this sequel plot has lots of potential imo. And with the same screenwriters hopefully a lot of potential for half-naked, wet James McAvoy awww yiss.

Katy Perry's loud SEX with John Mayer disturbs neighbors

Katy keeps her neighbors "Wide Awake" with loud, disturbing sex with John Mayer.

In case it wasn’t bad enough that Katy Perry‘s having sex with John Mayer, they’re now doing it so loud her neighbors are starting to get pissed.

It may sound like something you'd read in 'Fifty Shades Of Grey', but it seems as if Katy Perry and John Mayer's ultra-loud sex noises during their late night bedroom sessions have alientated them from their West Hollywood neightbours.

According to sources at Star magazine, it seems as if Katy Perry and John Mayer are VERY much back together and, while they're busy celebrating their happy reunion, their unfortunate neighbours have been forced to reach for the earplugs due to their high-volume sex sessions.


Katy Perry apparently had trouble satisfying Russell Brand’s wild sexual urges, but John Mayer certainly isn’t complaining!

Instead, it’s Katy’s West Hollywood neighbors who are complaining, as the couple like to “have very loud sex, keep very late hours and like to turn up the tunes,” reports Star.

Katy’s relationship with John has certainly had its ups and downs, as she has always been concerned about the notorious ladies’ man’s ”wandering eye”.

However, they seem to be happier than ever lately, and we previously reported that Katy thinks the John could be “the one”. Both stars have been unlucky in love in the past, so here’s hoping that this relationship runs the distance. Katy’s neighbors better buy some earplugs!

First look at MegaDon, err, Mad Men season 6!

Surf's up on "Mad Men"!

Production began this week on the highly anticipated sixth season of AMC's period drama, with Don Draper (Jon Hamm) vacationing in Hawaii with his beautiful bride Megan (Jessica Paré).

At least it looks like a holiday. In paparazzi photos taken at the Maui location Oct. 24, the couple are seen sunbathing in colorful '60s-era swimsuits, with Mr. Draper puffing on a cigarette while reading "The Inferno." (Who chooses Dante for their beach reading? Don Draper apparently.) In other photos, Megan sports a vibrant floral cover-up and floppy hat while clutching an Instamatic camera.

And unlike the couple's first sun-soaked trip together in "Tomorrowland" ("Mad Men's" fourth-season finale, when Don proposed to his secretary), the Draper kids are nowhere to be found. In fact, one photographer snapped a scene in which Don appears to be the best man at a wedding.

What do you think this beach blanket bingo reveals about the state of the Drapers' own marriage, which seemed shaky at the end of Season 5?

Justin Timberlake-Jessica Biel Wedding Controversy: Lawyers Scramble to Shut Down Offensive Video


Celebrating your nuptials in a resort in Southern Italy is pretty cool. Making fun of the poor and downtrodden...not so much.

A lawyer for Justin Huchel, Justin Timberlake's real-estate pal who made an eight-minute "gag" video featuring homeless people that was shown at the former 'N Syncer's posh wedding to Jessica Biel, is threatening legal action after Gawker posted a 20-second clip online Wednesday, prompting outrage among the newlyweds' fans.

Huchel's attorney, Michael J. Saltz, has sent a cease-and-desist letter to the website threatening it with a lawsuit unless Gawker took down what he said is "a protected copyright work" and destroyed all copies it has in its possession.

"Mr. Huchel made a video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake's wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake's knowledge," wrote Saltz. "Further, Mr. Huchel informs us that his copyrighted video was recently stolen."

But he’s traded in the rubber for a similarly constricting straitjacket to play Kit Walker, an inmate at an insane asylum who is suspected of being a serial killer known as Bloody Face. Vulture talked to Peters about his fans, the inspiration for his Boston accent, and that one time he exposed the cast and crew to his balls.

Meet Actress and 'Louie' Star Susan Kelechi Watson

Meet actress Susan Kelechi Watson, who recently played comedian Louis C.K.'s ex-wife on season 3 of the comedy-drama Louie.

ESSENCE.com: There's been a lot of buzz about your being cast as Louie's ex-wife, and mother of his two White children. Tell us about your run on the show.

SUSAN KELECHI WATSON: It's been really fun, and quite a surprise because going into it I didn't know much about the role. I just knew I was going in for the role of Janet. I'd seen the show before I auditioned so I knew the kids on the show. [Laughs] And they were White. So when I go into the audition I say, 'I don't know what part I'm auditioning for but I know it can't be his wife because I've seen his kids.' They were like, 'Okay, we're just gonna press record.' After I got the role I was still thinking it can't be to play his ex-wife, maybe his friend, but not the ex-wife. I just thought it was hilarious, and that Louis [C.K.] was kind of brilliant for casting it that way.

One Million Moms drops "The New Normal" and now targets "666 Park Avenue"

Mark of the Devil in Title of Show

The producers of "Gossip Girls" and "Pretty Little Liars" bring viewers "666 Park Avenue." The satanic and demonic series is described on ABC's website as a mix between "Rosemary's Baby" and "The Shining."

To paraphrase the description of the program given on ABC's website: The show is about a young couple who find what they think to be an amazing apartment when in fact it is haunted. Those who live in the building seduce others to get what they need and want. But how far will they go to get what they want? The finest living in the city comes at a cost.

ABC also describes the apartment building as wicked and dangerous and the owner of the building as a dark power.

The evil owner of the apartment building in the show portrays characteristics of the devil himself. Previews include terrifying screams, death, spirits, satanic symbols, mark of the devil, and souls bought for a price. It airs Sunday evenings on ABC (Disney owned) at 10:00 pm ET/ 9:00 pm CT.

Take Action

Please send your email to the sponsors of ABC's new show "666 Park Avenue," and strongly encourage them to drop all plans to air the program. Sponsors include: Johnson & Johnson, Egg Beaters (ConAgra Foods), KFC (YUM Brands), Subway, Revlon, Colgate Total (Colgate-Palmolive), and Macy's."

I wonder if they know this is a fictional show and they are not being forced to watch it? Heaven forbid other people watch what they want to watch!

Anyways, if you wish to send an email of support to the sponsors of 666 Park Avenue.

As always, I recommend using your own email address and not OMM's prewritten-but-erasable email; companies are now starting to block OMM's email address.

And The Bullshit Begins For Belle

Is Once Upon a Time’s Belle the worst feminist ever?

Is Belle REALLY a good role model for little girls? Storybrooke’s Belle’s increased forgiveness of Rumpel’s lies rubs me the wrong way as an adult woman. If this weren’t a fairy tale, would you REALLY want your best friend or daughter dating this guy?

Is Once Upon a Time’s Belle the most anti-feminist character ever? Last season she walked out on Rumpel when he wouldn’t declare his love. But, this season, she keeps forgiving Rumpelstiltskin‘s inconceivably hugeass whoppers. She is clearly a woman who loves too much. First off, if I’ve been separated from my lover for twenty-plus years while incarcerated in an old school loony bin and then freed during a local Armageddon, I’d hope my lover would move me to safety, not say “hey, nice to see you, but do you mind if I loot the town and do a major power grab?” After that, Rumpel continued on his lie-blazing, truth-withholding, promise-breaking path by attempting to murder Regina, snapping at Belle (a woman recovering from schizophrenia), continuing to practice black magic and pretending he’s a changed man while holding Smee hostage in his basement.

Belle needs to sit down and watch every single made for TV movie shown on Lifetime starting with the Burning Bed. Would I have fallen for Robert Carlyle’s gentle accent, his gray streaked chestnut colored hair and his sincere, sentimental eyes? Maybe once or thrice. But, considering Rumpel’s blatant lies come within DAYS — or HOURS — of each other, after the third or fourth lie I might re-think hanging out with him. Does Storybrooke Belle do that? Temporarily. Does she ever stick her guns? No.

Christina Aguilera: I Want to Play a Crackhead!

Today's Billboard and Hollywood Reporter 2012 Film & TV Music conference might have been all about music and movies converging, but Christina Aguilera has a less sing-songy part in mind for her next foray on the big screen.

"I do want to do more acting," Xtina explained when conversation turned to her film, Burlesque. "I want to do something where I can really sink my teeth into something a little more challenging. Really outside of myself, outside of music."

And Christina already knows what kind of controversial part she's ready to take on.

"I sort of had this personal aspiration to do film, but I said, ‘I never want to do a musical! It's too much like myself," Christina recalled on her mentality before taking on the glitzy movie-musical costarring Cher.

After garnering fairly positive reviews for that role, she's ready for a change: "I want it to be honest and genuine in expanding my wings and doing something really, really different. A crackhead on the street or a drug addict. Or something crazy and meaty and juicy. Something that really took me out of myself."

And it might not be as hard for her to tap in to a dark side. "It's hard being such a powerful woman in the business. I'm known for not always being, kind of," she pondered before laughing. "I learned early on you can't always be warm and fuzzy because you'll be bulldozed right over."

“I know you never liked the sound of your voice on tape and you’ve never loved to know how much you weigh. And you still have to squeeze into your jeans but you’re still perfect to me.”

The audio in the video is bad so you can also listen to it here.

Are Those Pants Too Tight? Kim Kardashian Has A BIG Fashion Blunder


Kim Kardashian continues to commit fashion crimes in Miami!

The reality star, who has been cited for a variety of wardrobe disasters in recent months, did a little retail therapy in South Florida on Wednesday, drawing attention to her bountiful booty by pouring her curves into skintight and ill-fitting jeans, and RadarOnline.com has the photos.

The 32-year-old was snapped outside of the Christian Louboutin boutique, wearing rolled up grey skinny jeans that looked a size too small, clinging fiercely onto her ample rear end. She paired the denim duds with a leather sleeveless peplum top that featured a jeweled neckline, metallic stilettos and her $50,000 Hermes crocodile Birkin bag.

Earlier in the day, Kim tweeted a photo of herself modeling sweatpants and a bra.

Adam Carolla Joins Fox News Channel (Exclusive)

Considering how much he hates gay people, he's a perfect fit. Why hasn't Miss Victoria Jackson gotten a show over there yet? Where's the Corolla fangurl?

Comedian Adam Carolla has joined the Fox News Channel as a contributor primarily on the cable network’s top-rated The O’Reilly Factor.

Carolla, who has competed in reality TV shows like Dancing With the Stars and The Celebrity Apprentice and also is host of the most popular podcast in the U.S., has appeared sporadically on Fox News but recently signed on as a contributor, The Hollywood Reporter learned Thursday.

Obama Campaign Launches Sexy Lena Dunham Ad: "Your First Time"

The Obama Campaign released a sexy, controversial and hip pitch for voting on Thursday from Lena Dunham, the star and creator of the HBO show "Girls," at a time when sex, abortion and women's rights have been front and center on the campaign trail.

The Obama Campaign has aggressively used YouTube to mobilize base voters, and it often taps celebrities who have a built-in viral punch. But this video is unusual even for the young, digital set in Chicago. The ad's style is vintage Lena: Edgy and informed, controversial but achingly self-aware, sexually proud and affirmatively feminist -- if anyone can pull off an extended metaphor of voting for the President by giving him your virginity, it's Lena Dunham. That said, conservative bloggers were cranking up a reflexively outraged response just hours after the video was released on Thursday. Well, they never claimed to have a sense of humor.

While it's safe to say that Dunham's tone is different from every other ad the Obama campaign has ever made -- she jokes about "doing it with" the President -- it reinforces the President's closing argument about women's rights. So while Dunham rifs that "your first time" should be with "someone who cares whether you get health insurance -- and specifically whether you get birth control," on Thursday night that guy was making an overtly feminist attack on Republicans, telling NBC News that recent debates over abortion are a reminder that "you don't want politicians, the majority of them male, making a series of decisions about women's health care issues." While some may think the President is simply responding to incidents and press questions, the Obama campaign has been promoting his remarks, circulating a YouTube clip of the exchange to reporters under the headline, "Politicians Should Stay Out of Women's Health Decisions."

Or maybe Lena Dunham said it best: "You want to do it with a guy who brought the troops out of Iraq -- you don't want a guy who says, 'Oh hey, I'm at the library studying,' when really he's out not signing The Lilly Ledbetter Act."

it's neither sexy nor controversial (IMO)

Chris Brown spotted with Kae + her insensitive instagram photos

Chris Brown's recently-dumped ex Karrueche Tran still believes she has a future with the singer -- in fact, Karrueche is telling friends, she's not gonna stop trying to get with CB just because Rihanna's back in the picture.

Sources close to Karrueche tell TMZ, she was hurt when Brown gave her the axe a few weeks ago ... but she never stopped loving him -- and now, she is on a mission to get him back.

We're told Karrueche got used to a certain level of celebrity while dating the singer, and she's not ready to "go back to being basic" -- even if that means messing around with Brown, while he's messing with RiRi.

Eventually, we're told Karrueche hopes to edge Rihanna back out of the picture.

Case in point -- Karrueche and CB were spotted hanging out together Monday in Burbank, CA ... two days after Rihanna and CB were spotted together in L.A.

As we previously reported, CB broke up with Karrueche earlier this month -- citing RiRi as the reason -- saying, "I love Karrueche very much but I don't want to see her hurt over my friendship with Rihanna."

Belle de Jour takes on Caitlin Moran's BS

It is perhaps a demonstration of irony that in the same week when a poll showing only 1 in 7 women are happy to call themselves feminists appears, so too does a column by the editors of Vagenda demonstrating exactly why that is the case.

According to Rhiannon and Holly, Caitlin Moran should not be called out for the now infamous tweet that she "literally could not give a s___" about whether the show Girls depicts women of colour (it is set in Brooklyn, where 55pc of the residents are not white).

Apparently, hoping that a movement that supposedly brands itself as being for all women might have prominent spokespeople endorsing the idea that someone other than white-middle-class women are involved, is "cloaking feminism in esoteric theory."

If that's what qualifies as esoteric these days, then we really are doomed as a species.

FYI, Dr. Brooke Magnanti is ~real~ Belle de Jour and the author of "The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl", which spawned the TV show Secret Diary of a Call Girl. And I call myself a feminist but I think she makes mostly good points about what's wrong with a lot of mainstream feminism, and why Caitlin Moran's behaviour on Twitter was inexcusable.

Liberty Walk 2012

''Every season we look forward to Alexander Wang‘s Confessional film series. The artfully directed mini-movies place a spotlight on a noteworthy beauty and allow us to experience the world of Wang from a new perspective.

This season’s star, the always engaging Liberty Ross gives a candid look at her career, from her first cover for i-D Magazine, to her stint playing Ozzy Osbourne’s bride on an LP, and of course her memorable trip down Alexander’s runway.

Watching the clip is a treat that gives some insight into Liberty’s life away from the spotlight, and shows you just why Wang’s show is such a model favorite – more than a few girls name-checked the designer when listing their fave moments this season.''

But she has reignited the war of words between the two camps after using the term 'rice cake' to describe Karreuche, who is of Vietnamese origin.

Rupert Graves saves the treehouse (undoubtedly looks sexy while doing so)

For those of you who remember:

A treehouse erected by council bosses who forgot to obtain planning permission from themselves has started a “war” between residents of a north London square.

Islington council commissioned the structure, which cost nearly £36,000, six months ago, but it has been overshadowed by a row that has polarised the community.

Families, including that of Room With A View actor Rupert Graves, who want the play facilities for their children are fighting residents who complain about noise and being overlooked from the structure.

This Week in "Reasons Gwyneth Paltrow is Out of Touch as Hale..." the jumpsuit a la l'avajayjay


Oftentimes, whilst my personal dresser is putting on my pants two legs at a time (because one at a time is so pedestrian, don’t you agree?) I’ll ask my stylist why they no longer make clothes that properly accentuate my vageene. I mean, nothing of a Kar-dah-zian level of crotch-cradling camel toe but something simple that drapes ever so subtly, drawing the viewer’s eye directly towards my pink velvet sausage wallet…my dark cave of wonder…my Paul Ryan safe house, something that says “warmest greetings old friend, my vagina has been expecting you.” Well, like my labial godmother, Gwynnie has once again come along and designed the most divinely unflattering jumpsuit that will put all eyes on my punanny, just as God intended.

Now, I know what you are thinking, the jumpsuit went out of style seasons ago and this design has been done more times than a Blake Lively on a casting couch! But my darlings fret not for goop has taken this shiteous design to a whole new level; the saggy crotch, the unflattering cut and the circa ‘03 ruching at the cankles all come together to really make this piece a must-have. Plus, it works perfectly as any number of All Hallow’s Eve costumes. You can be a sexy ninja or a less obese Scarlett Yo-hannson in The Avengers, or an albino MC Hammer or Gwyneth’s soul – all black and sparse and devoid of anything even resembling good.

Now, it’s worth noting that despite the posh sounding French name of Gwynnie’s design partner; this piece is not by some chic, Parisian couturier but Jermaine Jackson’s old jump-off, Margaret Maldonado. As you are undoubtedly aware, nothing quite says high-fashion like being the former mistress/baby mama of the 3rd least relevant Jackson sibling (now I ain’t saying she a golddigger cuz she was messing with a broke broke). While it may not be the chicest name about town, I believe that given Margaret’s questionable life choices purchasing this item can be used a charitable contribution on your taxes, that is, if you even bother to file taxes, which is really something only poor people and Mormons do.

To purchase your Hefty trash bag, I mean, the jumpsuit a la l'agence (yeah, they actually call it that), click here.

Another royal wedding beckons in Europe: This time it is Sweden's Princess Madeleine who is getting ready to tie the knot.

Madeleine and her British-Americah boyfriend Christopher O'Neill announced their engagement on the royal palace website on Thursday.

The tabloid Expressen reported early Thursday that O'Neill, a 38-year-old financier she met in New York, had proposed to the princess, and the couple confirmed the news in a brief video clip posted on the royal website.
