Multi-millionaire art collector Charles Saatchi has begun divorce proceedings against Nigella Lawson just four weeks after he grabbed her at a celebrity restaurant in London, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.
The former advertising tycoon, 70, says he has made the ‘heartbreaking’ decision to formally separate from the television chef because she refused to defend his reputation after he was pictured with his hand around her neck at their table. He told The Mail on Sunday: ‘I am sorry to announce that Nigella Lawson and I are getting divorced.
‘I feel that I have clearly been a disappointment to Nigella during the last year or so, and I am disappointed that she was advised to make no public comment to explain that I abhor violence of any kind against women, and have never abused her physically in any way.’

Shameless‘ leading lady has an Emmy — in her name. But next month, Emmy Rossum, who plays broken tough girl Fiona Gallagher, could also have “Emmy nominee” attached to her moniker. In the Showtime series’ third season, the actress took her character to new depths as she fought for guardianship of her siblings and lost her boyfriend — for good. In fact, it was such a “challenging” year for Fiona that one scene even gave Rossum a panic attack.
TVLINE | The Emmys consider Shameless a drama, but the show really does have genuine moments of comedy. How do you think of the series, genre-wise?
It’s in a strange sweet spot that doesn’t really fall in either place. Because of the weight of a lot of the subject matter, like alcoholism and poverty and growing up with MIA parents, I feel like it does fall into the drama category, even though it is a little bit farcical at times.
TVLINE | Do you have a preference in regard to what you like to play?
I don’t try to play it for laughs — ever. I always try to play for the reality of the moment. Some of the darkest things in life, the most dramatic, actually make us laugh because laughter, just like crying, is a release of pent-up energy. I definitely gravitate towards the drama a little bit more. But I enjoy the funny, too.

Underwhelming I think is the only way to describe this.
Now wait a minute, before you start typing angrily at me, you should know I’m of the opinion that you can be a fan of both shows. That opinion got me into hot water early on with Elementary fans, but in their defense, people were saying absolutely horrid things about the upcoming show, particularly about Lucy Liu being cast as Joan Watson. I don’t blame them for not wanting to hear, “Why can’t we all just get along?” I’d been skeptical of the show creators’ intentions early on, but I was never skeptical of Liu being cast. In fact, that was the one thing that ensured that I would be watching the show.
Joan Watson did not disappoint. None of the characters did. But I understand that some people who did give the show a chance didn’t stick with it. The trouble with 20+ episode seasons is that many episodes are bound to feel like filler, and Elementary is no exception. But the series got its sea legs, the character development was gorgeous, and the Moriarty arc in particular was stunning.
Anyone who was worried that Elementary was going to be a cheap rip-off of Sherlock needs to know that that’s not the case at all. So against my better judgment, I decided to do a side-by-side character comparison to show how Elementary is different, and how different is very, very good.

Last Friday, after Sony Pictures Television threw in the towel and stopped shopping Happy Endings to other networks, writer Jason Berger went on Twitter and posted a bunch of screencaps of rejected and alternate jokes that never made it into the show. They’re exactly what you’d expect, even if they’re not presented in the ideal format: lightning fast, heavy on pop culture references, and occasionally about Chris Bosh’s weird face. What more could anyone want?
Anyway, why am I posting these now, a full week after they went up on Twitter? Well, a few reasons. One, it’s July 5 and there’s bupkis happening anywhere on the news front, so now is as good a time as any to sit back and reminisce a little about a great show that left us too soon. Two, I completely forgot to do it earlier in the week. And three, there are one or two commenters who always pop up in posts about Happy Endings to rant and rave about how much they hated the show, and I figured it would be nice to give them something to do this afternoon. Here to help, gang.

Did Archie kill Regina? That's the question on everyone's mind after Jo and Rico figured out that Archie wasn't "resting up" the night of Regina's party. But did he actually kill her? Jo is on a mission to find out in Tuesday night's all-new Twisted (Season 1, Episode 4: "Sleeping With the Frenemy").
First, however, can we please talk about Rico? Because he and Phoebe are pretty much the best parts of every episode. His first fist bump was so magical, I contemplated calling this recap "Rico's First Fist Bump." I mean, how hilarious was that scene? But I digress.
"Sleeping With the Frenemy" took a page out of ABC Family's other hallmark teen murder mystery — Pretty Little Liars — book by answering one question while simultaneously leaving viewers with so many questions. Remember last week when we thought Archie was the one who may have killed Regina? Well, he either had a really good coverup story, or he didn't do it. It turns out he had an important meeting with the soccer coach at the local prep school, who just so happened to be Regina's uncle. So no, he wasn't "resting up" before the big game, but he wasn't exactly murdering Regina, either. So who did murder her?
If you ask Sheriff Masterson — and Regina's mom Gloria (guest star Jessica Tuck) — they're still pretty certain "Danny De-Psycho" is the one to blame. No to mention whoever committed the act would have had to know about Regina's necklace, which we learn was a Desai family heirloom.

Michelle Hardwick, an actress best know for her role in soap Emmerdale, has spoken out publicly for the first time to say that she is gay.
The 36-year-old actress, who plays Vanessa Woodfield on the ITV soap, said she is in a happy relationship with her girlfriend Rosie Nicholl.
Speaking in an interview with the Mirror, Hardwick said the couple met eighteen months ago, and were friends for a year before becoming a couple.
“Life is good – and my life with Rosie is a big part of that, it really is bliss. I’ve not spoken about it sooner because it never seemed like the right time.
“When I was in The Royal, the majority of our audience were older and I would have been nervous of revealing too much. But since joining Emmerdale I’ve been getting asked about my personal life and when people want to know ‘Do you have a boyfriend?’ it’s tricky.
“I don’t want to hide anything. I’ve never actually been able to talk about ‘my girlfriend’ or ‘partner’ – this person that means everything to me, and it feels good to be able to finally do it.”
She went on to say: ”I do tweet, so people can see me and Rosie on there but they probably think we’re mates who share a house. People say, ‘I’d never have guessed you were gay’ because they expect you to look a certain way and I don’t fit their stereotype.”
Hardwick said she came out to her family at the age of 29.
She said: “The only thing my family were upset about is I hadn’t felt I could come out sooner… As a teenager, it was hard as I had to keep things secret and it shouldn’t be that way. Hopefully things are different now.”
Fans of the soap will see, by coincidence, a sexuality storyline for the character Vanessa, which will begin next week.
It must seem like a good idea. How else to explain why so many artists will try anything -- whether it's fiddling with the arrangement or striving for the glory notes that only divas can hit -- to put their own stamp on the national anthem? Getting booked to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" at a major event is an honor for any artist, so why not try and make it memorable, like Whitney Houston's epic take in 1991 or Marvin Gaye's eminently soulful '83 version?
Alas, not everyone -- in fact, almost no one -- reaches that level of greatness. With that in mind, Billboard brings you the 10 worst national anthem performances ever.
Once a pop newcomer with a bright future, the Dominican singer never quite recovered from this national anthem performance at a 2008 Dallas Cowboys game. Any way you look at it, it's a spectacular failure. She tries too hard to hit the notes that only a rarefied circle of divas can, then takes us on a painfully bumpy roller coaster ride of vocal runs. She half-forgets the lyrics. She completely botches the last note. And she does it all with the swagger of something who believes she's positively killing it. When a chorus of boos erupts at the end, it's far too little, too late.

Part One in response to this:
I hear what you're saying, and I appreciate knowing your thoughts and feelings on these issues, which you've stated very eloquently.
No one meant to break your heart or crush your soul, certainly. There are a number of complicated issues involved here, and I don't have the time or the energy to address them all. ((Might make for an interesting discussion at a con, if we had a hour or two and a good cross-sample of people of good will and differing viewpoints)).
I understand that Salladhor Saan and Missandei and Xaro Xhoan Daxos are not major characters, certainly... but it does trouble me to have them dismissed as "otherized supports to... white PoV characters." Yes, they are supporting characters; they're not protagonists, they don't have chapters from their own viewpoint. But Oberyn Martell is a supporting character as well. Which is not to say he is unimportant. Robb Stark never had a viewpoint chapter either.

Lady Gaga is so afraid of what is being said in a lawsuit involving two of the people who discovered her, that she's filed legal docs to try and keep certain information from EVER seeing the light of day.
Former Gaga collaborator and close friend Wendy Starland sued Gaga's former BF/producer Rob Fusari in 2010, claiming Fusari screwed her out of revenues she felt she was owed for her role in discovering Gaga.
Earlier this week, Gaga filed docs pleading with the court to seal certain information in the Starland/Fusari case. She claims the info is "sensitive, private, and personal."
Gaga claims that if the info went public, it would "inflict significant personal and professional harm upon" her. She also says that she and Fusari are legally bound to keep the information private as part of a non-disparagement agreement between the two.
A judge has yet to rule.

Rumors about the pair began to swirl when Gubler posted festive pictures of face paint and sparklers on his twitter page. He later deleted the images when fans of Swift, 23, noticed similarities to pictures the singer and other party goers had posted online.
Swift and Gubler began following each other on twitter in May.

BBC commentator John Inverdale says he has written to Wimbledon champion Marion Bartoli to apologise for saying she was "never going to be a looker".
His comments on Radio 5 live as she prepared for Saturday's final provoked anger from some listeners.
Speaking on air on Sunday, he said was sorry "if any offence was caused" by his "ham-fisted comments". A BBC spokesperson earlier: "We accept that this remark was insensitive and for that we apologise."
Inverdale had earlier said he had poked fun "in a nice way at how she looks".
French player Bartoli, 28, sank to her knees after she clinched her first Grand Slam title, beating Germany's Sabine Lisicki.
Inverdale's comment came about an hour before the match began as he chatted to former Wimbledon champion Lindsay Davenport about Bartoli's technique as a player.
He said: "I just wonder if her dad, because he has obviously been the most influential person in her life, did say to her when she was 12, 13, 14 maybe, 'listen, you are never going to be, you know, a looker. You are never going to be somebody like a Sharapova, you're never going to be 5ft 11, you're never going to be somebody with long legs, so you have to compensate for that."
Inverdale's comments came before the match.
'You are going to have to be the most dogged, determined fighter that anyone has ever seen on the tennis court if you are going to make it', and she kind of is."
Asked about Inverdale's comments, Bartoli said: "It doesn't matter, honestly. I am not blonde, yes. That is a fact. Have I dreamt about having a model contract? No. I'm sorry. But have I dreamt about winning Wimbledon? Absolutely, yes."
"And to share this moment with my dad was absolutely amazing and I am so proud of it. I am sure I will be able to watch the DVD of the match over and over again and look at the picture of me when I am holding the trophy in my
arms. That is the most important thing to me and not what I can do outside of the court."
I'm NHF his non-apology, but I thought her response was awesome.
As ‘Pour It Up’ makes its way to 2 million units sold, Pop nocalist Rihanna has celebrated the news that her single ‘Stay’ has now outsold Beyonce‘s 2008 hit ‘Halo‘- making it the highest selling ballad by a black female artist in the US.
An interesting story below…
Upon its release on December 23rd 2008, ‘Halo‘ surpassed digital sales of 3,123,000 units by October 2012, after peaking at #5 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Now, by way of 3,298,000 units sold by Rihanna’s ‘Stay’ since January 7th of this year, the performer is now claiming that this feat has seen break ‘Halo‘s record for being the highest selling ballad by a black female artist in the US.
Pretty strange, considering the 4,591,000 units sold by Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Will Always Love You’ by 2009, or the 3.5 million+ copies sold by Tracy Chapman‘s ‘Fast Car‘, after its April 1988 release.
In intentionally spreading the misinformation cooked up by the fan above, the ‘Fading‘ performer went on to tweet:
Alas, with many a Beyonce fan billing her a ‘purveyor of tall tales’, here’s hoping the hours that follow see her explain this would be record further…and figure out a way to score herself a second #1 album.
Scottish first minister Alex Salmond took full advantage of Andy Murray's stunning victory in the Men's Wimbledon final on Sunday.
Shortly after the Scottish tennis ace dispatched Novak Djokovic in straight sets Salmond unfurled a Saltire and waved it behind David Cameron's head.
Salmond is pushing the case for Scottish independence ahead of a referendum on Thursday 18 September, 2014.
Unfortunately for Salmond the stunt appeared to contravene tight All England Club regulations.
Its website states that "large flags (over 2ft by 2ft), banners, rattles, klaxons or oversized hats" are among prohibited items at the club.
As well as potentially landing him in hot water with the authorities, the flag-waving was criticised as a "stunt" by some political rivals ahead of next year's referendum on Scottish independence.
Shadow Scotland Office minister Willie Bain posted on Twitter: "In my experience, real tennis fans support their favourite players for who they are and how they play - let's keep the stunts out of it."
Liberal Democrat chief whip Alistair Carmichael penned a memo to the tournament organisers, saying: "Thank you for looking after the FM today. Next year, can you please search him more carefully?"He added the hashtag #cringe.

With the release of the Man of Steel come and gone, fans have finally gotten the answers to our burning questions: will Henry Cavill measure up as Clark Kent? Will the more realistic tone mesh with Supes? Will the action live up to what we expect from the Man of Steel?
But there is another question that was also answered, one of equal importance, but that doesn’t seem to have been asked as much: what about Lois?
Lois Lane is without a doubt the second most important person to the Superman mythos, barring the man himself. Her role is pivotal to the success of any Superman undertaking, and it’s critical that anyone who portrays her be up to the task. Prior to Man of Steel’s release, I had every faith that Amy Adams would be awesome as Lois, and for the most part I was right. But as we are graced with yet another Lois Lane, I oftentimes look back and ask myself, who did it best?
There have been as many versions of Lois as there have been of Clark, and whenever the question arises as to who was the best, several names are usually mentioned: Margot Kidder, Teri Hatcher, Noel Neill. But, friends, I offer to you that the best Lois Lane we’ve been graced with thus far is Erica Durance. Here are 5 reasons why:
