Simon Cowell silenced!

Told off by his mum in public! Haha!
Someone has given Simon Cowell a dose of his own medicine! The feisty American Idol judge was seen getting a right old serve by none other than is mum! Simon was out to dinner in LA?s trendy Ivy restaurant with his mother and Terri Seymour and was nattering away on his mobile phone. His mum soon became exasperated with the constant racket of the mobile, and yelled ?Turn that bloody phone OFF! I didn’t raise a rude son who talks on the telephone while he’s in the company of others!” Although Simon explained that he can’t help people calling, Mum wasn?t having a bar of it. “DON’T give excuses — just shut the damn thing OFF!” Go Mummy Cowell!

Not so close these days, Ginger and Scary Spice

It wasn?t all air kisses when Former Spice Girls Mel B and Geri Halliwell recently ran into each other in LA. According to the Daily Star, the pair were out shopping separately, according to Scary Spice, “I had just left a department store in LA and Geri was right there in front of me. I was like: ?Er, hi.? I had nothing to say.? After performing together for years in the Spice Girls, both girls are now carving their own paths. Mel is taking up acting seriously. She is currently preparing for her staring role in the Broadway musical Rent. She said her life is going in a totally different direction for former friend Ginger. ?We just don’t have the time to see each other any more. And there’s nothing I would really want to say to her anyway,” added Mel B. Talk about burning your bridges!
