Chicklets for Dixie Chick

Chicklets for Dixie Chick

Martie Maguire, 34, of the Dixie Chicks is expecting twins. The fiddle-playing gal posted the news via the Dixie Chicks web site. “Yes, we are delighted to inform y’all that I am expecting not one, but two little chicklets,” wrote Maguire, who is in her first trimester. Apparently Maguire and her husband Gareth have been trying to conceive for 2 1/2 years. “I can’t tell you what an emotional ride this road to getting pregnant has been,” Maguire said. “I know that compared to some couples’ struggles, ours has been relatively easy, but I will say that we have an all new appreciation for the miracle of life.” Yee haa!

P. Diddy Did Run the NYC Marathon

Hip-hop entrepreneur Sean “P. Diddy” Combs finished the New York City Marathon after just two months of training. P. Diddy finished the grueling run in a time of 4:14:54, his marathon effort raising an estimated $3 million for disadvantaged children of New York. This staggering figure is double what the high-profile entertainer had hoped to raise. “Never in my life have I ever experienced anything as crazy as this,” Combs said Sunday at a news conference. “It was a beautiful experience.”

Some of the more famous philanthropists who sponsored his efforts were Mayor Michael Bloomberg and our favourite glamour couple J.Lo and Ben Affleck, who, rumour has it, tipped in a combined sum of $150,000! “I definitely wanted to stop,” said Coombs of the event. “This is definitely a life-changing experience for me because I did not stop.? P.Diddy had this to say to his detractors: “We set a bar and we crushed that bar. This is just a start. This wasn’t a publicity stunt.” And in an even bigger win, USA Track & Field named the 34-year-old popstar as its ?Athlete of the Week? last week after his efforts in the marathon! Watch out or P.Diddy might consider running full-time!

Britney may move to UK

In a move to try and sell more records in the UK, Britney Spears has declared she is thinking of heading across the Atlantic and making her home in Old Blighty. “I went to London last week and it’s so cool there,” the pop princess told a British TV show “I’m thinking of moving there. It’s really beautiful. I love it there.” The interview was recorded while Spears, 21, is in Britain to promote her latest single, Me Against the Music,” which features vocals from pash-pal Madonna. Surely the Poms won?t fall for that old trick! Again.

P. Diddy says NO SEX please!

P. Diddy says NO SEX please!

In announcement that’s bound to devastate women around the globe, R & B bad boy P.Diddy has told American newspaper USA Today that he’s abstaining from sex for two whole weeks while he goes into final preparations for the New York City marathon on November 2. “Two weeks is a long time for me, because I’m a very healthy Scorpio. My hormones are raging. I’m a young man, very passionate, very romantic.” The former beau of J.Lo, is making good use of his trademarked sports attire, entering the marathon in hopes to raise over $1 million US for the health and education of underprivileged kids in New York.

Long live the King!

Like to earn more than $70 million dollars from the grave? It’s easy if you are the king of rock and roll! Elvis Presley topped the “deceased top earners” list on Forbes.com for the third year in a row. Snoopy creator Charles Schulz came in a ghostly second with $50 million, while the original Lord of the Rings, J.R. Tolkien, came in third with over $40 million. Don’t know if this is a list that many celebrities are dying to get on!

A rolling Kate gathers no moss

Is Kate Moss ever going to marry Jefferson Hack? Apparently, after the wedding of pal Stella McCartney in September this year, the pair sent out hand written invitations to their own nuptials, due to take place in November this year. “Plans have been laid down for quite a while but obviously everything has to be kept very secret,” a friend told the Evening Standard. “Kate and Jeff learned quite a lot from Stella McCartney’s wedding.” But it appears that the perennial London party-girl may have called off the wedding. The pair had daughter, Lila Grace, over a year ago and were due to walk down the aisle in the UK next month. But with the wedding date yet to be rescheduled, it looks like Jefferson will have to be a little more patient if he wants to tie the willowy Moss down for good.

Holly’s new neighbours – ladies of the night

Hot on the heels of her costly courtroom battle comes another scandal for singer Holly Valance. The 20-year-old has learned the hard way, that her expensive apartment in west London directly above first floor premises being used for prostitution. Valance told friends that she is fed up with late night callers making noise outside her window. She told The Sun “The house always smells of laundry powder because they wash the sheets downstairs. I haven’t been there long but I’ve already called the police a few times when certain people on the street bash each other on the doorstep.” Valance said she does not feel safe at home alone, but because of her busy schedule in Europe she is not able to live with her boyfriend Peter Ververis in Australia. “It’s just the way it has to be right now and we accept that – until I make enough money to fly him on a private jet and tie him down with a ball and chain.” Indeed.
