After four months apart, Madonna and her runaway son Rocco, 15, just had a nice reunion in London at the end of April. Rocco is still living with his father Guy Ritchie, but he spent time with Madonna at her London home and he took her to his favorite skate park. Madonna posted a cute photo of them together looking chummy. Then she flew home and dressed in this strangely inappropriate outfit for the Met Ball. Do you suppose it might embarrass her kids? (They will be teased!) She’s a shoo-in for the Worst Dressed list.

On the road again. Simply Red (“If You Don’t Know Me By Now”) broke up in 2009 but Mick Hucknall and the band are back together and about to start their 30th anniversary reunion tour. Back in the 80’s, Mick described himself as a “sex addict” and said he often had three sexual encounters a day. Above, he was photographed leaving a London radio station where he promoted the upcoming tour.

We are FASCINATED by the news that the Gotti boys, John, Frank, and Carmine, are returning to TV for one night on A&E’s “Growing Up Gotti: Ten Years Later.” (Nov 10) Hard to believe it’s been ten years since we watched those Long Island teenagers arguing about their hair gel and eating like wild animals. Their accents were so thick that the series had subtitles to translate. The Gotti mansion was lost in a bank foreclosure so maybe we’ll find out where Victoria lives now. Two of the brothers have girlfriends and one is engaged. Can’t WAIT to find out what they do for a living!
Bravo’s first smash hit reality show back in 2003 was “Queer Eye For the Straight Guy” and we LOVED the way these stylish gay men would take over a rumpled straight man’s dismal life and teach him how to groom himself, entertain, and LIVE in general. It was like a quickie charm school. (We’ve often thought about opening a charm school for men) Anyway, according to Deadline.com The Fab Five, Thom Filicia, Ted Allen, Carson Kressley, Jai Rodriguez, and Kyan Douglas, are coming back for a night on the “Queer Eye Reunion: 10 Years Later.” Andy Cohen will talk to the guys about how the show changed their lives and reveal some behind the scenes gossip on Bravo in October.
We had no idea there were so many “X-Files” fans still out there. Comic-Con was a big draw for all those obsessed fans when they presented a 20th anniversary reunion of the Fox series. It was one of the biggest events of the show. Gillian Anderson, 44, and David Duchovny, 52, crept up the stage with flashlights like Mulder and Scully used to do. Gillian and David were very playful – they flirted and recalled their favorite scenes and answered fans questions. There is a small group of fans that INSIST David and Gillian have been having a secret affair since he separated from his wife Tea Leoni two years ago. We don’t believe it, but it’s nice to know that David and Gillian are so friendly now.

We’ve been fans of Saturday Night Live since day one, and Steve Martin was always an amazing host. He tweeted this photo today captioned, “Where are they now? Why, right here.” How all these SNL people happened to get together we don’t know, but we recognize everyone but the guy in the hat….

We’ve always insisted that Rihanna and Chris Brown had a secret agreement that they would get back together after a sufficient amount of time passed since that horrible beating in 2009. Both of their handlers pointed out that they could lose enormous amounts of money for endorsements etc if they reunited too soon and lost their credibility. Chris had to rebuild his shattered image and Rihanna had to set an example for battered women. Plus the judge made it impossible for Chris to be in the same vicinity as Rihanna until recently. Three years have passed and Chris attended Rihanna’s birthday party and now they’ve recorded two songs together. Coincidentally, the model Chris has been dating says they have an “open relationship.” Inch by inch and step by step, Rihanna and Chris are getting closer….But Rihanna beware: he’s still volatile and arrogant and shows no indication that he learned his lesson.
Yup, Katy Perry probably had the worst dress of the night at the Grammys. She looks like a blue haired Pasadena matron. This plain long blue dress would be more appropriate on a mature woman than a pop star. But the evening was not a failure, Katy came to her senses and changed her gown, and she and best buddy Rihanna had a nice reunion. They had a falling out when Katy was married because Russell Brand thought Rihanna was too wild and a bad influence on his wife. Now the girls can have fun again.
It’s an impromptu “Dynasty” reunion at the BAFTA Awards in London. The show went off the air in 1989 and it’s remarkable how glamorous these three English leading ladies – Emma Samms, Joan Collins, and Stephanie Beacham, still look. We hunted for an old photo of them together on the Dynasty set for comparison, but apparently they never had a scene together. We DO remember Joan Collins insisting that producer Aaron Spelling provide REAL – and expensive- champagne for drinking scenes, and she would only wear genuine diamonds – no fakes.
It’s fun to see the Diana Ross clan all together – none of the dads, but all the kids. The event for the family reunion was the opening of teacher Chudney Ross’s new shop called Books and Cookies in Santa Monica. It’s a children’s bookstore and cafe. From left: Rhonda Ross Kendrick (her daddy is Berry Gordy,) she’s holding her little boy Raif Kendrick, Ron Naess (daddy Arne Naess,) Chudney Ross, Tracee Ellis Ross (their daddy was Robert Ellis Silberstein,) Diana Ross, and Evan Ross (son of Arne Naess.)
