Showbiz gossip!

Posted by Dean Piper On January 3rd, 2008

The celebrity world is totally dead right now! Big time. So I’m scraping together bits and bobs until my social life returns. Next week I’m off to see the Spice Girls for the second time at the O2 centre, then I’ll be brushing shoulders with Johnny Depp and Tom Hanks at the premiere’s of Sweeney Todd and Charlie Wilson’s War and I’ll be jetting off to the Golden Globes in Los Angeles to mingle with the A-List towards the end of the week! But for now I’m giving you all I have…..

Spotted! SJP and Matthew Broderick checking into the Peninsula Hotel (where Victoria Beckham is regularly spotted) in LA. I’m told by my mole: “They rushed by and had loads of luggage.” Sarah Jessica is almost certainly putting the finishing touches to the Sex and the City movie that will be out in May. Hoorah.

My pal Catalina Guirado of TFi Friday fame is preparing to move back to LA with her new hubby Matt in January. Cat’s decided to get herself a proper job and leave the showbiz world behind for now. She’s taking up a post with a new music company that will headhunt the big chart acts of tomorrow. She’s ecstatic about being put up in a swanky LA hillside apartment too. Good for her.

Whilst in LA I’ll be interviewing the rapper Snoop Dogg and his family who will soon star in a brand new fly on the wall reality show that will air on E! Entertainment. I love E! – and I can’t get enough of all those trashy shows about celebs gone bad.

I’ve been getting my diary in order and I’m especially looking forward to the Brit Awards in February. The show will go out at 8pm on ITV1 on the day live (with a small delay) and will be hosted by Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne. And talking of the Osbournes….I was especially excited to read this week what Aunty Sharon had to say to my comrade overseas Perez Hilton. She told him she wouldn’t be coming back to the X-Factor without a huge pay rise due to the fact that she can’t stand Dannii Minogue. So there you have it – they really didn’t get on. I highly doubt Simon will bow down to Sharon’s demands. It would be a shame to lose her on the show!

I’m hoping to get the other side of the story from Dannii in the coming days. I will naturally have to fill you in. Until next week people!
