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."

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 29th 2011 7:05AM

Sir Elton John & David Furnish, Royal Wedding coverageIn 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.

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Apr 27th 2011 12:05PM
Legendary TV personality Sir David Frost was close enough with Princess Diana to have her be his son's godmother. So during his appearance on 'Piers Morgan Tonight' (weekdays, 9 PM ET on CNN) he was asked what his good friend would have thought about her son's marriage to Kate Middleton.

"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.

Gwyneth Paltrow Resolves 'Glee' / Kings of Leon Feud, January Jones Talks 'Mad Men' and More

by Jean Bentley, posted Feb 17th 2011 1:10PM
Gwyneth PaltrowThe Kings of Leon and Ryan Murphy have resolved their feud in the form of an unlikely peacemaker: Gwyneth Paltrow.

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."

TV Squad Soap Report: Passions played out

by Allison Waldman, posted Aug 6th 2008 2:23PM
Passions timmyPerhaps the strangest soap opera of all time has come to an end now that Passions has been canceled by DirecTV. The gothic, modern psycho-drama set in a small Maine town replete with witches, elves, zombies and even some regular people, lasted nine years on the air. In primetime terms, that would be a hell of a run. For soaps, it characterizes Passions as a noble -- to some -- failure.

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.

Truth: Impossible - Chef Robert Irvine caught in a web of lies

by Allison Waldman, posted Feb 19th 2008 3:24PM
Robert IrvineYou'd think by now that people would know better. Embellishing a resume, adding credits that are the work of a vivid imagination rather than hard work... they're bound to be unearthed someday. Especially if you're a success. The latest prevaricator caught in a series of lies is Food Network's British chef Robert Irvine. In a scathing expose by the St. Petersburg Times, the star of Dinner: Impossible, has been caught with egg on his face. Make that more like egg salad. Multiple claims by Irvine, including creating Princess Diana's wedding cake, cooking for White House dinners, being knighted by the queen, and more, have turned out to be tall tales.

Televised seance to contact John Lennon

by Anna Johns, posted Mar 19th 2006 12:44PM
john lennon seanceWhat's it called when you produce the sequel to a show that was called a 'new low' in television? I don't know, either.

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.
