Zeta-Jones back in court again

Catherine Zeta-Jones filed a lawsuit last week in US Federal court seeking over $30 million dollars from the cosmetics firm Caudalie for running an ad campaign claiming the actress “was spotted buying the complete Caudalie range of skincare” and had used the company’s anti-aging spa in Las Vegas. The Oscar-winner says, in her lawsuit, that she has never purchased such products, nor did she receive services from the spa. Catherine Zeta-Jones is obviously keen to hose down any association with Caudalie cosmetics as she has an exclusive deal to promote Elizabeth Arden cosmetics and is keen to prove that Caudalie cosmetics had no right to use her name in promotions. Looks like she will have her day in court yet again!



Madonna has new number 1 hit

Not to be outdone in the literary stakes by Harry Potter, Madonna has scored yet another number 1 hit, this time with her first children?s book The English Rose. ?It demonstrates once again that Madonna has an extraordinary gift for communicating with children of all ages,? said Nicholas Callaway, CEO of Callaway Arts & Entertainment, the book?s US publisher, in a statement issued last week. Not bad for a working mum of two kids!
