All the gossip from the 2011 Glamour Women of the Year Awards

Posted by Dean Piper On June 13th, 2011

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley tells me she’s ready for the release for her debut movie Transformers: Dark of the Moon. She even has all her outfits planned for the premieres! Rosie said: “I’ve seen the film now and it’s put my mind at ease – it’s fantastic. I still can’t believe that I’m in the film and it’s nearly the release date. But it is. I’ve got all my outfits planned and I’m actually really ready for people the see it. I really don’t know what I’m going to do next. There are offers and talks – but it’s a matter of choosing the right project. I’ve got so much to deal with right now that I can’t even think about what I’m doing next.”
Rosie’s man Jason Statham wasn’t there to be her date at Glamour – so she brought her mother instead. But one man was desperate to impress both Rosie and her mother. Dizzee Rascal came over and introduced himself to them. Dizzee could barely contain his grin as he met Rosie.


Katherine Jenkins (above with me) is loving the new panel on Popstar to Operastar – especially feisty new judge Vanessa Mae. She told me: “It just feels so much better this year. The panel is great – Vanessa makes great television. I don’t like to talk about favourites. But I loved Joe McElderry this week. I think he’ll do well after the show. But I think people will be surprised with the new contestants this week – they’re good too.”

I’ve been gagging for Frankie Sandford of the Saturdays to have a haircut. That floppy fringe thing is so done and dusted. And it sounds like my wish could come true! She tells me: “I’m going to have a big change soon. I’m thinking a cute pixie look – but it’s just working out when to do it. But do not fear. It’s happening!” Bring. It.


Fearne Cotton (above) is back on the singles market after splitting with her hubby-to-be Jesse Jenkins. But she’s far from down about it – in fact she was more than a tad chipper when I bumped into them. She’s just back from a girlie break in Mexico with her best girlfriend Laura Gallacher and she’s positive about the future! I said I was sorry to hear about the split and she quipped: “Don’t be sad for me. It’s really not been a big deal. It just wasn’t going to work at the end of the day and it’s better we parted ways. And I’m having a lot of fun now. I’ve just been off to Mexico and had the best time. And I’m off this weekend too. It’s time to have fun.”

The rise of Daisy Lowe continues apace. This time I hear the model, who looked stunning at the awards, has been signed up for a year to be the face and body of my favourite jewellery designer Stephen Webster’s new range. Perfect image for those amazing jewels….

Caroline Flack sounds like she’s more than a little bit enamoured with her co-presenter on Xtra Factor, Olly Murs. She even prefers him to her I’m A celeb co-star Joe Swash. “He’s so adorable,” she gushed. “I just keep grabbing his cheeks and squeezing him a lot. He’s literally too cute. I’m actually quite obsessed with him. Joe was a great cheeky chappy – but Olly is just perfect.” Hmmm, two single people co-presenting. Cute couple alert!


Louis Walsh is clearly besotted with new X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos. He says he’s never gotten on with another judge so well so quickly! Lou told me: “Tulisa has been through a lot but she has a real good heart on her shoulders. It’s crazy to think she is only 22. She’s a real star and this is just the start of the rest of her life. The connection between us is completely real and we’re so tight. I have never got on with a judge so well and I really loved Sharon. Wait till you see the show it’s really something special. Kelly is good too – she’s getting up there and singing right back to the contestants.”
And Louis is clearly bored of the Cheryl drama – like everybody else. He laughed: “If one more person asks me about Cheryl I’m going to go nuts. It’s so boring now. It’s over. Let’s all move on. Saying that though, I was thinking about turning up for auditions one day with purple flares and huge hair.” Naughty!


I’ve been bumping into Matthew Morrison from Glee all this week! First at Glamour and then we went for a cocktail at London’s plush St. Pancras Hotel on Thursday night. We talked Glee, the future and why he’s finding it so hard to find a girl to settle down with. Matt, who performs tomorrow night at The Hammersmith Apollo visit for tickets, told me: “It’s tough with girls. How do I find the right person? I want to find someone that can understand the crazy world I live in. But away from work I just want a girl I can cook dinner for every night and curl up on a couch with. It’s tough. I mean, how do I trust a girl and not worry she’s with me for the wrong reasons. It is a struggle. One day it will happen – but not for now.”
Matt told me he’s signed up for another three years of the hit show – but he has no idea if the kids on the show will continue. “I suppose they’re going to have to graduate at some point,” he said. “So I don’t know what will happen and who will stay and who will go. But there will have to be changes. I’m still just as excited about being on the show as I was on the first day of filming.”
He wouldn’t confirm or deny whether the rumour that Gwyneth Paltrow will join him on stage on Monday at his gig is true. All he would say is: “There has been a bit of  hitch and the guest performer may not be happening now due to schedules. But I’m hoping it will.” Can’t wait for that!


MEANWHILE…..Kim Kardashian caused a scene arriving with her buddy Michael Evans at Glamour – in real life that butt is out of control….James Corden showed me a picture of baby son Max wearing a t-shirt which read: “I want chocolate, chips and cake.” Bless….It’s not often a security guard stops me from getting to a celeb – but Kristen Stewart’s gorilla was all over her like a rash. I didn’t stand a chance. Drats….Mollie King says despite things going well with model boyfriend David Gandy the pair are not moving in together – yet!….The Wonderland girls were celebrating outselling Rihanna and Bruno Mars’ albums in the charts with their debut album….

WORDS OF WISDOM – Dizzee Rascal:
“My friend says when it comes to girls and sex that you pay for it all in the end.”
