Downton Abbey season three has come and gone. If you blinked you might have missed a terrible lot and will have to go to Masterpiece’s online stream to catch up! We swear that was the quickest albeit most engrossing and entertaining few episodes ever. And even though a major spoiler alert on Dan Stevens untimely departure from the hugely successful show loomed with the season finale – with full knowledge of how even – it never detracted from its impact.
Hell if we didn’t forget to breathe as we watched the dashing lad slipping away in a ditch! Read the rest of this entry »
We have been jonesing for our very own photo of Downton Abbey’s Dan Stevens. But every time we have attempted a revisit of the The Heiress stage door we just barely miss him and are left bereft – it just doesn’t seem to go as envisioned. That is until now.
Don’t get us wrong… Sure, we are deeply grateful for his Heiress’ costar Jessica Chastain’s amenable disposition and beautiful smile but in the end gays’ will be gay – and Dan Stevens’ sparkling blue eyes is where our heart thaws. Sorry Jess…
Our thanks to Stevens for extending us the opportunity for some great shots.
Alas, a fellow pap-ster had to go and drop the bomb on a impending twist contained in the 3rd installment of our beloved Downton series. And after a little Googling, we happened upon further learning of its resounding truth.
We are crushed yet again.
But we will dutifully watch and mourn (again) when the time comes. Until such time we will regress to complete ignorance and deeply rooted denial.
The number of priceless Absolutely Fabulous TV moments are countless. There are no other duos out there presently that can pull off such over the top comedy while delivering political undertones applicable to society of yesterday, today and likely tomorrow, like the French & Saunders team can muster. So lets just admit the obvious – Joanna Lumley and Jennifer Saunders are geniuses.
We got the opportunity to sit our asses down and click play on their new two episode special installments of the long running classic – just two episodes – and were immediately in stitches. It was like they never stopped – if it only lasted under two hours.
Seriously, they are like Sade – timeless. Not a wrinkle nor a loss of pitch.
Theirs’ is a talent and a theme that never gets old, never looses its timing and never looses the talent of their imaginative writers. Many have tried to copy it – Roseanne anyone – but none have achieved it!
C’est pas possible.
On a personal position, we live for the over-the-top presentation of sheer delusion that Edina and Patsy reside within. Excess and frivolous spending, sprinkled with a few pills and washed down with some bubbly. What the hell is there not to like, sweetie?
Our only disappointment is that it was merely a two episode special brought about by the kind graces of the BBC.
We would kindly like to petition French & Saunders to be obligated to serve time putting these styled annual revisits together every year! It would only be right. And this would give us a definitive reason to turn on our flat screens – say nothing of justifying paying for one…
So a big merci to Lumley & Saunders for bestowing us with such a gift and here’s to their continued returns.
British beauty queen Keira Knightley, here pictured leaving a taping of The David Letterman Show in NYC, is the victim of yet another stalker, the BBC reports.
Polish national Marek Daniluk, 41, was arrested outside the Comedy Theatre where Knightley is currently appearing in Moliere’s “The Misanthrope,” on Thursday following a complain to London Police.
An unidentified woman phoned authorities and reported the strange ”behaviour of a man outside the theatre on Wednesday.”
The cops apparantly quickly followed up and Daniluk was apprehended outside the theater the following day.
Say what you can about this fool, he is dedicated!
Having brought the facts to you, I must now chime in and say that I don’t understand fanaticism.
I have witnessed it first hand and the lunacy of this act escapes me. I can’t fathom waiting on anyone for countless hours just to be close to them. WTF is that about?
There are prescription meds that can correct this problem.
The only reason my ass will wait on someone is if I am going to make some coins from it… And that becomes debateable after a certain amount of time cuz my ass hates waiting on people!
I hope the British courts throw a book with a prescription at this fool!
“I didn’t recognise him as he looked so different to what I expected from the films. When my friend told me who he was, I was shocked,” Tazi claims.
I find her statements hard to swallow and I have little gag-reflexes. Sounds like a bunch of bull. Leave Harry Alone!
The remaining particulars of the incident are sketchy, cuz clearly this was no regular fan – of hers anyway.
Me thinks this is likely some disgruntled X-Factor watcher who is still bent that she beat out his fave some years back – if not having been scarred by this outfit she wore to the Jingle Ball concert at MSG back in December.
The BBC is reporting on the 3rd installment of the Robert Pattinson, here pictured while at the Planet Hollywood promotional appearance, starring flick already being well into development and scheduled for release.
And this comes even though the highly anticipated “New Moon” sequel is yet to be in the can – so to speak.
We will be seeing a whole lot of Pattinson and Taylor Lautner (HOPEFULLY shirtless) for a good long while!
