Peaches says to celebrities: don’t give your kids stupid names!

Peaches Geldof has spoken out about her unusual name, saying it has made her life hell. The daughter of Sir Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates was christened Peaches Honeyblossom Michelle Charlotte Angel Vanessa Geldof. She says she wishes celebrities would stop giving their children absurd names. “I hate ridiculous names; my weird name has haunted me all my life. I hate being famous; people claim to know me because of my surname.” Her three sisters Fifi Trixabelle, Pixie and Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lilly are also suffering the same fate.

Keira Knightley bribery techniques
Keira Knightley has admitted to bribing security staff at the Golden Globes last week in an attempt to get her friends into an exclusive party. Apparently she turned up at Vanity Fair?s pre-party with only two tickets, but seven friends. How did she manage to score entry for her friends? She gave guards packets of chips! “What’s a girl to do? I gave the security guys my best smile and confessed that there were eight of us and only two tickets,” recalls Keira. “They said to me, ‘What else you got?’ and I said, ‘Well, we’ve got two packets of crisps,’ and they said, ‘OK, that’ll do.’ So we wafted into the poshest party of the night with two packets of ready salted.” That?s what fame?ll give you.

Andie MacDowell is tying the knot to business Kevin Geagan. This is the third nuptials for the actress, she has three children with first husband Paul Qualley and her marriage to former high school classmate Rhett Hartzog ended in October 2004. No wedding date has been set? The West Wing will cease production after it finishes its seventh season in May. The reason is because it has been suffering poor ratings in the USA. Stars have been surprised by the decision, ER actor John Leguizamo saying “Another really bright, smart show on the air, it’s so weird to think it’s over, that’s bizarre,? and Golden Globe winner and The Office star Steve Carell saying: ?I think it’s a great show and it was very, I think, groundbreaking and I’m sorry to see it go, it’s a wonderful show and a wonderful ensemble.”
