Charlize the next Bond girl

Charlize Theron has been confirmed as the next Bond girl opposite Daniel Craig. She was said to be director Martin Campbell?s first choice and has been offered a lucrative deal to appear in the remake of Casino Royale. It is quite a coup having an Oscar winner in the lead female role and she will follow in the footsteps of former Bond girls Halle Berry, Teri Hatcher, Britt Ekland and Ursula Andress.

Mariah’s dressing gown drama
It?s one of those nightmares that we?ve all had – being caught almost naked in a public place. Mariah Carey had that experience recently and no, we?re not talking about one of her red carpet outfits! She was taking a bath in the top floor of the London hotel Claridge?s when the fire alarm went off. She only had enough time to grab a bath robe before she hurried down the fire escape. According to one onlooker, “It was incredible- seeing one of the world’s most beautiful women just running around in her dressing gown.” Fortunately, it was a hoax and the star was allowed to return to her room after half and hour.

Demand for Take That tickets, but no Robbie!
Surprisingly, seven extra dates have been added to the recent Take That tour in the UK because of high demand. The reunion tour features Howard, Jason, Mark and Gary but no Robbie Williams, although that doesn?t seem to be a problem for the band?s popularity. Tickets for the original concerts sold out in 30 minutes! Meanwhile, missing band member Robbie Williams is showing his popularity, in a less conventional field. His 2006 calendar is proving to be the most popular sold so far in all of Britain. Following him is the Little Britain calendar in second place and Manchester United and Arsenal tying in third. Go Robbie!
