Gordon Ramsay’s Open Letter To His Mother In Law In Full: Deliciously Sour Stuff

GORDON Ramsay, the panicky botulism-faced TV chef, has written an open letter to his wife Tana Ramsay mother Greta Hutcheson not to sever links to his family.

Last month Ramsay sacked his father–in-law Chris from the family firm. Now Ramsay, vain to the last, writes a letter to his mother-in-law.

(No not his mum. He contacts her in public by phone – or not.)

Says he:

“This has to be one of the most painful letters I’ve ever had to write. Listening to Tana in floods of tears reading your letter… asking that she stays away from her family is so awfully wrong.”

The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo: Hollywood Remakes It Better

NIELS Arden Oplev, director of the orgianl screen verison of Stieg Larsson’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo Oplev is not happy with the Hollywood version. For one thing, he’s not directing it. For another Noomi Rapace is unlikely to reprise her role as Lisbeth Salander. Rooney Mara is looking to gt the nod. He tells Word & Film:

“The only thing that’s annoying to me is that the Sony PR machine is trying to make their Lisbeth Salander the lead Lisbeth Salander. That’s highly unfair because Noomi has captured this part and it should always be all her. That’s her legacy in a way I can’t see anyone competing with.

“I hope she gets nominated for an Oscar. I know a lot of Academy members have seen the film and liked it because every time I go to LA I meet so many people who have seen my version of it. Even in Hollywood there seems to be a kind of anger about the remake, like, ‘Why would they remake something when they can just go see the original?’ Everybody who loves film will go see the original one.

“It’s like, what do you want to see, the French version of La Femme Nikita or the American one? You can hope that Fincher does a better job.”

Pride Of Britain 2010 Photos: Celebs Validate The Real People

THE Pride of Britain Awards 2010. A mawkish, sentimental event to show celebrities doing their bit for the orchestrated care industries. It was created in the era of the mourn porn conductor-in-chief Tony Blair, who went on to say that the NHS was the “pride of the country“.

This made-for-TV pride is for “unsung” heroes. These heroes are ‘ordinary’, as presenter Carol Vorderman says:

No winners are more deserving. Unlike most awards shows these days, they’re not celebrities, but REAL starsunsung heroes of all ages, whose inspiring stories take your breath away.

And what better to give “REAL” stars perspective – oh for the authenticity of poverty, real breasts and humdrum lives – than loads and loads of jobbing celebs? They are here to validate your ordinariness.

Susan Boyle: Lou Reed’s Perfect Day Is A Cynical Christmas Hymn To God Bothering

LOU Reed is directing the video of Susan Boyle’s Perfect Day. It’s Boyle’s cynical Christmas hymn. Boyle’s shtick is to take any song and make it churchy. Next year, Boyle will sing The Ace of Spades in the Methodist fashion, followed by an organ-driven version of Smack My Bitch Up.

Scene 1: Boyle walks slowly towards the end of a jetty. The waters are calm. Will she dive in? Is this an advert for Campbell’s soup?

The glinting twilight and moving clouds are like a scene when the hero has just died and the cameras make out his soul has lifted up to Heaven.

Scene 2: Boyle is now engulfed in cloud. She is floating. Each note ends with a ring of a bell. Boyle is no longer just a sign of God’s love for humanity – she is the authentic voice of Mother Nature. She is Gaia thanking us for a perfect day in the bosom of her voice.

Daniel Radcliffe Gets Do Not Resuscitate Tattoo

DANIEL Radcliffe, forever to be known as Harry Potter, says now he’s all grown up he wants to get a tattoo. But what to get and where to get it?

“I definitely do want to get some tattoos, but I don’t know if the first thing I would rush out to get would be something ‘Harry Potter’ related, because let’s face it, I’m going to have this for the rest of my life anyway as it is, I don’t need a tattoo that says the same.

“I want something I can grow into over the years.”

Anorak suggests “Do Not Resuscitate” – the very ancient swear by it. Something to grow into…

“I think parents need to beat the crap outta their kids… I think the whole spanking thing and how it’s gotten all PC (politically correct) is for the birds. My dad put me through a wall; it’s the only reason I’m still alive. I deserved it. I would have kicked me out when I was eight… I was not comfortable with authority or rules. I was bad.”

TO London’s Golden Square for a sexy tomato fight between Katy Perry would-be K.Pez (aka Delia Marie Williams) and Lady Gaga look-alike  – only sexier – Maybe Gaga (Victoria Cluskey). The stunt was to promote the MTV Awards in Madrid. It’s all hideous PR and exploitation. Here are the pictures for you to disapprove of – the tomatoes were non-organic…

Stephen Fry: The Heteronormative Patriarchy Of Subject Matter

STEPHEN Fry says something about sex with women – and women writers find something  to write about. They take time out from shagging and catting (female dogging to those of you who, like Fry, are uninvited to the secret female sex cruises) to write about stuff. Laurie Penny sees it a chance to write a report for her university lecturer:

Instead of solidarity in the face of a heteronormative patriarchy that oppresses all of us, there remains a chasm of suspicion and misunderstanding that obstructs genuine solidarity between women and gay men. Fry’s words are a perfect expression of that process of mutual incomprehension, a process whereby our culture has become so alienated from its own sexuality that erotic impulses can never be a point of community, only of difference.

Yes. Whatever you say, luv…

Lily Allen Loses Baby On Twitter: Triggers Orchestrated Grief And Mourn Porn

LILY Allen is no longer pregnant, having lost her baby. She was six months pregnant. Sad news. For her. It is a bereavement.  But to the tabloid media and grandstanding celebrities looking to show strangers how much they care it is a matter of national solidarity and orchestrated mawkish pity. The front-page headline commands readers to:

“SAY A LITTLE PRAYER”.

For a paper that sucked up regurgitated ever line Alistair Campbell spun – he who told Tony Blair: “I’m sorry, we don’t do God” – this looks like opportunism to get a celebrity on the cover. But, then, we read on and realise that Lily Allen is the source of the quote. She went on Twitter to tell her followers (fans and showbiz hacks looking for a quote on a slow new day):

“Say a little prayer.”

Stephen Fry To Host ‘Catting’ Summit With Slapper: Princess Diana Memorial (Usual Time)

STEPHEN Fry has flounced off Twitter almost a year to the day he last quit twitter (the migratory bird of habit is back) and – whatsitpopsit – over the kerfuffle over his words in Attitude magazine that woman don’t like sex as much as straight men. Says he in an attempt to extend his 140 character wit limit:

“If women liked sex as much as men, there would be straight cruising areas in the way there are gay cruising areas.”

There are, Stephen. There is the buffet at the David Lloyd club in Bushey, Herts; the Princess Diana memorial between the horus of 2:am and 3am every Third Sunday in the month; France.

Just because you’ve not been invited, Stephen, does not man the legend is untrue. Fry goes on:

“Women would go and hang around in churchyards thinking, “God, I’ve got to get my ******* rocks off”, or they’d go to Hampstead Heath and meet strangers to s**g behind a bush.”

Coy Peter Andre Is Having Sex And Talking About Having Sex (Again)

THIS week’s big NoTW scoop – the paper is now behind a paywall – is that Peter Andre is having sex. Yep, it is just like the last week’s NoTW scoop, wherein we learnt that Peter was having sex with one Angela Mogridge. Or what of the scoop that he’d been shagging Maddy Ford, the former glamour mo-del.

Katie Price career in pictures

The NoTW called her “a graphic designer”; but she turns out to be more graphic dancer, part of group called Million Dollar Babes, an entertainer as happy in a bikini, cradling her bosom, sucking suggestively on a lolly suggestively as she designing new fonts (photos).

She’s the type of woman Peter might have been referring to when in reference to his ex-wife Katie Price he said:

“I want a different type of girl.”

Cheryl Cole’s Lady Garden Tattoos (Photos)

CHERLY Cole, the X Factor judge, is to get tattoos of a swing seat, hedge trimmers and small statuette of a bearded man straddling an obelisk. She draws the line at the patio heater tattoo, because it “damages the environment, and she, as an icon, owes a debt of responsibility to her fans”.

Cheryl already sports a strip of barbed wire and leafy growth about her legs and name plaque on the rear or her neck. Cheryl is modelling her skin on a front garden, or an ambitious window box…
