They are all from Essex! This week I has some celeb gossip on some of the closer to home celebrity’s but of course I talked about further away celebrity’s too!
Chantelle Houghton’s family Plans
Essex Girl and 2006 Celeb Big Brother Winner Chantelle Hougton has been dating Katie Price’s Ex, cage fighter Alex Reid for only a few months but they already have big plans for their relationship.
Because of her past eating disorders and dieting Chantelle’s fertility has unfortunately been effected but that’s not going to stop the couple bringing a baby into the relationship!
Alex has said “It’s a big leap for us. It’s only seven months since we got together. It’s not a decision we’ve taken lightly at all.”
As I mentioned Alex did date and of course Marry Katie Price again only a few months of meeting. The couple tried IVF treatment but it didn’t work for them.
Although they had their rough patches Alex doesn’t regret being with Katie as he explains ‘I have to thank Katie because if I hadn’t met her, I wouldn’t have met Chantelle. All of those events, however bad, brought me here. Spending that time with Katie helped me realise what an amazing person Chantelle is.’
Though they say they are in ‘no rush’ they are not looking at adoption just yet, as Chantelle talks about her experiences at the IVF clinic “It’s all really positive. I’ve had tests done. They can help us. I’ve had a lot of scans and horrible, painful things done to me.”
The Only Way is Eastenders
We all know that Mark Wright from local show The Only Way is Essex is a bit of a ladies man, and not bad looking, and some of the cast of Eastenders agree. Jacqueline Jossa who plays Lauren Branning has spoken about how she would love him to join the soap so they can work together she has said “Do you know what? I think Mark would be really good in ‘EastEnders’. I watch ‘The Only Way Is Essex’ and I think he’s alright. “Lauren’s being a bit of a minx at the moment so it’d be good if he came in it so they could get together.”
However one actress on set is against the idea of Mark coming into the show as she doesn’t want anyone to be more orange than her! Shona McGarty who plays Whitney Dean said: “I don’t want his fake tan showing me up! I’m the most orange person in ‘EastEnders’ at the moment and I want to keep it that way.”
It might be a good idea if she was to join the cast of TOWIE and show all the girls up!
Though all this talk of Mark joining Eastenders may just seem like a dream for some of us, it seems the dreams may actually come true as Mark explains saying “I’m still really pursuing the acting and I have spoken with one of the producers of ‘EastEnders’. I want to play a hard man role but to be honest, I reckon I could pull anything off.”
Bit big headed, but that’s Mark for you!
Returning to the Beginning
Essex Singer and Winner of last years X-Factor, Matt Cardle, is scared of the thought of going back to where it all began! In the live studio of the talent search programme Matt will perform his new single ‘Run For Your Life’ but he is a bit nervous as the song was written by head judge Gary Barlow. Matt explains saying “I thought it would be great because Simon [Cowell] won’t be there and he won’t be judging me with his hawk eye, but Gary wrote that track and I want to sing it with the conviction it deserves.”
This is the first time his single will be performed on TV backed with his band. He will do his performance next Sunday, the 9th of October.
If anyone was to be asked who is Rihanna, surely they would be able to answer? Apparently not. Rianna is soon to have a new album out on the 21st of November, with the lead single being ‘We Found Love’ which she has currently filmed her music video for. The setting for this music video is a farm in Northern Ireland and the owner of the farm has admitted he didn’t know who Rianna was! As he has explained saying “I didn’t know who was coming. If the name ‘Rihanna’ had been mentioned, well, no disrespect but it wouldn’t have meant anything’.
The farmer called Alan Graham, also had a problem with what Rianna was wearing, or not wearing, on his land. While she was filming the video, there is a part where she is topless and Alan was walking to his Tractor when he noticed, he then had words with her. Alan has explained his thoughts saying “I thought it was inappropriate. I requested them to stop and they did. I had my conversation with Rihanna and I hope she understands where I’m coming from. We shook hands.’
‘We Found Love’ features Calvin Harris is currently available to buy and download.
Jason Derulo has found his ‘It Girl’!
Jason Derulo has seemed to found his It Girl in the shape of singer Jordin Sparks!
Last weekend Jason was celebrating his 22nd birthday in Hollywood and Jordin was there by his side. A source has confirmed they are together by saying “Jordin would sing to him occasionally through the night in his ear if her head was nested on his shoulder. He was excited to spend some [quality time] with Jordin in LA. … The two left together and continued the celebration.”
Jason has been given some time off so I’m sure he will be spending it with his new girlfriend.
