Devon spoke about Diana's butler, Paul Burrel, and what he felt when he had to secure the room that contained Diana's body shortly after her death. "The fan was blowing, and he calls it her fringe," said Devon, "I think her bangs were blowing, and he was in total denial. He was like, 'Diana, get up. Come on, get up, honey. This is not funny."
In what was described as a likely bittersweet moment for him, Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish arrived fashionably late to Westminster Abbey for the Royal Wedding (Fri., 6AM ET on FOX). It was the first time Sir Elton had been there since the funeral of his good friend Princess Diana, where he performed his tribute to her, 'Candle in the Wind (1997).'
John was subdued certainly from the lavish garb that makes up his stage persona, opting instead for a bespoked Richard James morning suit, though he did add a flash of flare with a gold waistcoat and purple tie. Furnish matched in a bespoked morning suit of his own, designed by Henry Poole, as the couple made their way inside.
"I think that she would be thrilled with the choice he's made . . . And I think she would inevitably in the circumstances also -- besides being thrilled -- be filled with the most marvelously irreverent jokes, cause she always was."
Sadly, Frost didn't reveal what any of these jokes would have been.
The actress, who starred in Murphy's 2006 film 'Running With Scissors,' took it upon herself to patch things up between the feuding parties -- via text message, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
After the band said they wouldn't license their music to 'Glee,' Murphy, uh, quoted the lyrics to the non-censored version of Cee Lo's 'Forget You.' The band insisted it often turns down such requests and it wasn't meant as an insult to the show, but drummer Nathan Followill got into a war of words with Murphy on Twitter.
According to THR's source, though, after Paltrow's intervention "it's all good now."

I never cared for Passions. It turned me off in the first season, 1999, but it wasn't because of the outre elements. I was actually interested in the gothic stuff because I'd grown up enjoying Dark Shadows with Barnabus and Quentin and Angelique and all those horror classic reinterpretations on a next-to-nothing budget -- furniture provided by Stern's Department Store, as I recall -- including werewolves, Frankenstein's monster and The Innocents, and parallel universes. Dark Shadows remains a vivid, happy memory.
If you wanted to get your conspiracy theory fix and are bummed out the upcoming HBO documentary on JFK will be free of such theories, than you might want to check out The Murder of Princess Diana, a TV movie that hits Lifetime this August, the ten-year anniversary of her death.
The TV movie, based on the book of the same name by Noel Botham, will focus on a supposed conspiracy that resulted in the princess' death in a car crash.
A British television channel has plans to produce a documentary about the death of Princess Diana. Supposedly, the producers have obtained exclusive photos of the crash that ended Diana's life in 1997. Diana's sons, William and Harry have expressed concern and requested that the photos not be included in the final production.
According to producers the photos contain no explicit or damaging images of Diana and are essential to the production, although they haven't said why.
In 2003, it was The Spirit of Diana, a televised seance to contact the dearly departed Princess Diana. It cost $15 to watch and drew about 500,000 American viewers. This time around, the same geniuses behind the Diana seance are now attempting to contact John Lennon. On April 24, it'll cost a mere $10 to watch psychics visit different locations of importance to the former Beatle, including the New York apartment building where he was shot and killed. It's called... wait for it... The Spirit of John Lennon. And, no, Yoko Ono is not involved.
The producer of the program, Paul Sharratt, said that the Diana seance didn't make him a believer in psychics but he thinks there are "many, many millions of people around the world who think it's possible." Classy.
