Today in celebrity gossip: Prince Harry has been seen with a new model companion, he's also a hero to the gays, and there's a love triangle scandal a'brewin' down in Alabama.
Is there a new love in the Ginger Prince's life? It seems that Prince Harry, third in line for the throne of England, was spotted flirting up a flirt storm with British supermodel and white powder collector Cara Delevinge recently. The two were at a party held at Princess Beatrice's house and spent the whole day talking to one another. Apparently the party had a "Hollywood Westerns" theme, because rich people are bored and weird, and Delevinge got a kick out of Harry's cowboy boots and hat. She did that thing where she kept stealing his hat, you know that obvious and vaguely annoying playful flirting thing where you just want to say "Oh, would you two just do it and get it over with!" They've seen each other since, Harry giving Cara an in-flight magazine, as a "running joke between them to prove who has the most jet set lifestyle." Hm. That is maybe a little gross? Oh well, it's OK, it's OK. One funny thing about this article is that it mentions Harry's last known girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, and then informs us that Delevinge's last boyfriend was a musician named Jake Bugg. Ha. I wonder if that's what they talk about all the time. "Your last girlfriend was named Cressida Bonas." "Your boyfriend's name was Jake Bugg." Cressida Bonas and Jake Bugg. Bonas & Bugg. They should start a band. Ah Britain. You strange place of silly names. [iol.co.za via Jezebel]
Oh! In case you were feeling a little down on Prince Harry after reading that last thing — the lame flirting, the haughty joke about jet-setting — here is a nice story from the weekend that Page Six brings to our attention today. Harry is apparently a champion of the gays! Or, a gay. In a new memoir, a gay former soldier in the British Army reveals that when stationed in Canada with the Prince, the soldier divulged to some fellow infantry that he'd spent the night with a man, also a soldier, and the others were incensed. Feeling threatened, he went to Harry, who said he would "sort this [bleep] out once and for all." So off Harry went to sort things out, and when he came back it was all done. Harry, a hero! "Prince Harry was sticking up for me and putting a stop to the trouble. I had been on track for a battering and had been rescued," writes the soldier in his book, clearly smitten. And I mean, who wouldn't be? I think even the hardest of hearts would be won over. Fred Phelps would probably take to giggling and batting his eyelashes if he was rescued by Prince Harry. It's just the power of the prince. It's irresistible. Just ask Cara Delevinge. Or Cressida Bonas. Hell, ask Jake Bugg. [Page Six]
Uh oh, scandal in the sports world. Well, the college spots world anyway. Hotshot Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron is dating 24-year-old Miss Alabama USA 2012 Katherine Webb. But now some other model, a lingerie model, is saying that she spent the night at McCarron's house this past weekend. But no no no, it's not what you think it is, the other model, Margaret Wood says. Sort of. "We were hanging out at his house, and I had been drinking, so he didn’t want me to drive," she told Radar Online. "I did not stay at a hotel. That’s all I can say. I’m trying to be careful about what I say because I feel really bad." Clearly she feels bad! Only people who feel bad talk to Radar Online. That's just a known fact. Atwood then went on to say, "A.J. and I are just friends. People are blowing this out of proportion." People? You mean you? I mean, "people" aren't talking to Radar Online about this, you are! Sigh. Young people. Silly, silly young people. May I remind you that this is all about a college student. A.J. McCarron is still in college, and the Daily Mail and others (ahem) are now writing things about whether or not he had a girl stay over while his girlfriend was out of town. How strange. Football culture is weird. Radar Online culture is weird. Culture is weird. [Daily Mail]
Heidi Klum and her bodyguard/boyfriend Martin Kristen apparently got in a big fight while drinking together at the Spotted Pig. They were there with a friend, Germany's Next Top Model judge Thomas Hayo, but that didn't stop them from getting into a spat, which resulted in Heidi storming out of the restaurant before eventually sitting back down at the table after Kristen went out to talk to her and then left. So basically some friends were drinking at a bar and there was a disagreement but it seems like it's blown over. OK. Phew. Weren't you worried? I was worried. Anyway, wouldn't it be kind of fun to drink with Heidi Klum? I imagine it would. [Page Six]
One of the women that Tiger Woods had an affair with, Rachel Uchitel, is getting a divorce. Yes. The club host one, the one with the strange and sad 9/11 connection, but who's mostly known as one of Tiger Woods's extramarital girlfriends, is splitting up with her husband. Oh, she was on Celebrity Rehab too. So I guess it's maybe unfair to say that she's mostly known for the Tiger Woods thing. Though, that's how I heard about her. How did you hear about her? This woman, Rachel Uchitel, who is getting a divorce? It's a big question. [TMZ]
Julianne Moore and fashion designer Rachel Roy were seen having dinner together in Williamsburg before going to see Paul McCartney at the Barclays Center on Saturday night. Which, great, fun, hope they had a nice time. Just one question: If they were going to the Barclays Center, why would they have dinner in Williamsburg? That doesn't make any sense! Go to al di la or something. That's just down the street. Hell, go to Franny's. I know they were very likely taking a car and not the subway, so it didn't really matter efficiency-wise, but still. It doesn't make sense. "Let's go to this completely different neighborhood for dinner before seeing a show in this other neighborhood." I don't get it. Oh well. [Page Six]
Hey look, Bob Saget went to the Full House house. It looks different. Time, huh? Time. [Us Weekly]
