As we discussed on Friday those nude pictures of Kate Middleton were published in the French magazine Closer, as well as online. They were taken while Kate and Prince William were on vacation on William’s cousin’s private property. Kate and William issued a statement following the filing of their lawsuit saying, "Their royal highnesses have been hugely saddened to learn that a French publication and a photographer have invaded their privacy in such a grotesque and totally unjustifiable manner." However, the lawsuit doesn’t seem to be scaring anyone. An Italian magazine called "Chi", which is owned by the same company is planning to publish somewhere between 50 and 200 more pictures in a 26-page spread today. Oh, and the publisher claims she has worse photos she didn’t use. No word on what makes them so much worse.
Meanwhile there are rumours swirling around now that Prince Harry had unprotected sex while he was partying in Vegas. Now of course the Royals fear he might have impregnated someone. On the subject Simon Cowell says, quote, ''He's one heck of a nice guy and if I was his age I would have ended up with a few cute girls in a hotel room with my clothes off too.''
Unfortunately for Harry he’s far away from Vegas these days. He was shipped to Afghanistan and he has a target on his back. It has been confirmed that the Taliban attacked Harry's military base. Taliban spokesman Qari Youssef Ahmadi says, "We attacked that base because Prince Harry was also on it and so they can know our anger. Thousands more suicide attackers are ready to give up their lives for the sake of the Prophet."
Amanda Bynes finally had her car impounded. She was pulled over yesterday morning and ticketed for driving with a suspended licence. She was not arrested. A judge took away her licence last month because she’s facing charges over two separate hit-and-run incidents. Last week she was photographed driving while smoking pot. On Thursday night Amanda was attempting to drive away from paparazzi while covering her face. As a result she tapped the back bumper of the car in front of her. The owner of the car got out, but put the blame on the paparazzi, not Amanda. She decided no damage had been done, so they both drove off without exchanging information.
Kristen Stewart did not choose her words wisely when she was talking about the director of her new movie, On the Road. While praising Walter Salles she said, quote, "He puts so much inside of you." Obviously, that's a bad choice of words given what happened between Kristen and her last director, Rupert Sanders. Although it was never confirmed that the two of them actually did fornicate. Kristen went on to explain her point a little better saying, quote, "Once we got on set, it was so about just breathing and letting it happen. He put so much trust in us. So it was like, 'OK, so I have to take my clothes off?' It's so not a big [deal]."
In other Kristen news, at least one of my sources is claiming that Kristen and Robert are back together because they decided they just couldn’t live without each other.
Russell Brand was leaving yoga class in L.A. the other day when he saw a homeless man lying on the ground with no shirt on. He stopped and gave the guy some water and a shirt. Then he took him with him in his car to get some food and a bath and he apparently also took him to an AA meeting. A witness says, quote, "Russell noticed him there and was parked and out of the vehicle in no time to help. He asked the guy his name and what was wrong. I heard him offer to take him for some food. Thomas said he wanted a burger, to which Russell replied, 'You don't want any of that crap, come to my house and you can have some proper food and a nice bath."
Ben Affleck feels old thanks to newly married (to Ryan Reynolds) Blake Lively. The two of them starred in The Town together. The movie was filmed in Boston, where Ben and Matt Damon grew up. One day Ben was showing Blake around the area. He says, quote, "I'd tour the actors around Boston. I was with Blake, and I saw Matt's childhood home. And I said, 'Oh yeah, that's where Matt grew up.' [Blake] said, 'Who?' And I said, 'Matt Damon. And she said, 'Oh my God! You know Jason Bourne?!' And I thought, 'There it is. The first age of people who are adults who missed the whole Matt-and-Ben propaganda campaign!' Mostly, it just made me feel old." Thanks Ben, now I feel old too.

WEB EXCLUSIVE BONUS SCOOP!
Ryan Gosling may propose to Eva Mendes. My source says, quote, “Ryan is head over heels in love with Eva and he wants to have a life with her, including children. It’s something Eva has baulked at in the past but Ryan has a charming way of helping her see a different kind of future. She’s getting on board with the idea of marriage. He is now confident when he pops the question she will say yes. Ryan wants children, as does Eva, but also believes in marriage and youngsters growing up knowing mommy and daddy are committed to each other.”
