Belated birthday for Robbie Williams

Belated birthday for Robbie Williams

Happy returns Robbie!
Robbie Williams celebrated his ‘surprise’ 30th birthday last week at Skibo castle, the same place Madonna and Guy Ritchie tied the knot in 2000. Williams’ family organised the five-day long knees-up for around 50 guests as a belated birthday at home for the star, who celebrated his official birthday days earlier with friends in LA. Williams is back in the UK following his hectic international touring for his latest album Escapology. The wild birthday celebrations apparently featured a good-natured send up by UK TV presenters Ant and Dec, of UK TV show Family Fortunes. Hilarious!

Paris, bucked and bruised
Pony Paris gets bucked
Show pony Paris Hilton has been thrown by a horse while filming the second series of her reality TV show The Simple Life. Reports from the States reveal that while Paris was taken to a local hospital following the fall, she was never admitted and left a short time later suffering only bruises. It is not know whether the celebrity fashionista was wearing pony skin boots at the time of the accident.

Heath on love and Naomi
Heath on Naomi
During a recent interview to promote Aussie outlaw flick Ned Kelly which opens this week in the US, Heath Ledger spilled the beans on his relationship with fellow thespian Naomi Watts. “Having a relationship is not challenging at all. I think people desperately try to make it challenging for us by assuming and creating stories or just being interested in us. But love is love. If you’re in love, it’s easy and it’s hard in a good way. Our relationship is everything a healthy relationship should be.” Ohhh! He sounds like the perfect boyfriend – sensitive and good looking.

Big mouth strikes again
Wedding bells for Kylie?
Rumour has it that the songbird has taken matters into her own hand, asking boyfriend French actor Olivier Martinez to be her husband! Go girl! But far from being a private moment for Kyles, news of the impending nuptials was leaked by younger sister Danni Minogue after a big night out with friends last week. Minogue the younger apparently revealed of the June wedding, “They’ve been thinking of Paris, Sydney and Barbados, but it’s probably going to be where it’s the hottest,” reports Britain’s News of the World. Thank for the free PR little sis. Not.

Wedding bells for Brittany Murphy

Wedding bells for Brittany Murphy

Actress Brittany Murphy, 26, and talent manager Jeff Kwatinetz 34, became engaged last week at a silent movie theater in Los Angeles, according to People magazine. The groovy couple started dating after Murphy’s breakup with Ashton Kutcher, her co-star in last years Just Married. Some critics claimed the Kutcher-Murphy union was just a publicity stunt to raise awareness for what is universally acknowledged as a very average movie. One question – if they were at a silent movie theatre – how did he know she said yes?

Robbie wants to settle down

Believe it or not, Robbie Williams is still telling anyone who will listen that he wants to settle down and have a family. He’s even gone so far as to swears his bad boy days are truly over! In an interview with Croatian magazine Story, Robbie claimed he had turned his back on one night stands and was looking for that special woman. He said: “My life is back to normal and I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I’ve realised that life is beautiful and fate has been very kind to me. “I am sure a lot of people will be surprised I am not supposedly having a string of affairs, but it’s true and I’m happier because of it.” He added that his lack of interest in having a succession of lovers and his search for a long-term partner was part of the reason he had lost interest in life in Los Angeles. The notorious wild man of music said: “LA is a city obsessed with sex. However, that’s not what I’m looking for. I’m in a phase of my life where I want to find a woman that I’d be happy with for longer. I’m looking for the woman of my life.” Pick me, pick me!

Mini-Me for Robbie?

Robbie went on to reveal he also wants kids and had accepted that when it happened his life would change forever. He said: “When I get kids I’ll leave Beverly Hills the moment it happens. It’s easy to see why, because all the kids that grow up there are unhappy. They simply experience too much in first decade of their lives. You never see a kid riding a bike in Beverly Hills.” To be precise, Robbie said he would like to have two kids, and added: “It doesn’t matter whether they are boys or girls, I only know that the name of my first child will be Sunny. We will live in England and most probably have a place in a countryside rather than the city.” Talk about forward planning Robbie! Plenty of Aussie chicks would no doubt be lining up for the job as Mrs Robbie Williams! But do leopards really change their spots?

Bloomin’ Orlando’s off the shelf

Lord Of The Rings heartthrob Orlando Bloom has always steered clear of discussing his love life, but the hunky actor has just admitted he’s in love. In case you are wondering who the object of his affection is, it is none other than the blonde babe from the teen surfer movie Blue Crush, 21 year-old actress Kate Bosworth. Orlando, who celebrated his 27th birthday this week, spent a romantic Christmas break with the surfer babydoll, after which he told an interviewer, “I’m in love with love. It’s heavenly when you’re falling for someone and you can’t stop thinking about her.” Gorgeous all round is our Orlando!
