I Want to Marry ‘Harry’ Debuts

FOX debuted a new reality show, “I Want to Marry ‘Harry’” this week. The premise is hilarious; take 12 unassuming American girls, and let them believe they are fighting for the affection of Prince Harry of Wales. In reality, the ‘bloke’ is actor Matt Hicks. Since promoting the show, he has said that American girls are more “forward and loud” than English girls.

Drunk In Love, Err, In an Elevator with Solange?

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, on Mars, with earplugs, you already know that singer (and sister to Beyoncé) Solange Knowles physically assaulted rapper husband Jay-Z after the Met Gala in an elevator as his wife Beyoncé stood and watched (in her fabulous, $30,000 Givenchy gown).
