Producers hope to lure Nicole Kidman to the Simpsons

Producers of the Simpsons are hoping to convince Nicole Kidman to make a guest appearance on the long-running TV show, though so far she hasn't responded to any of their invitations. "We approached Nicole when we were looking for a celebrity couple back when she was married to Tom Cruise. Some way, sooner or later, we should be able to get her, though," the executive producer said recently.

Tea at Laduree, Harrods

Last week when Barneys Girl came to London, we decided we wanted to have tea before shopping around Knightsbridge. We really wanted to have tea at Ritz, but alas, we booked too late. So we settled for having tea at Laduree at Harrods. According to my yahooing, Laduree is a famous Pairsian tearoom which only opened in Harrods last year.

We've had our tea English style and Chinese style before, but never French style, so we were pretty excited to see what the differences were.The differences apparently were that the waiter was forgetful and not the most polite man I have met. The layout of the tearoom wasn't that great either -our table was situated under a staircase! I felt sort of cramped up there.

The food was good though. Barneys Girl ordered this caramel cream cake-like thing and a hot chocolate. Her chocolate drink was actually pretty interesting -it came in a tiny jug of rich chocolate liquid and a little bowl of cream. She was supposed to pour the choc liquid into the cup and mix in some cream. It looked delicious, but understandably, BG thought it was too rich for her taste. So it's def not for people who can't stand serious sweet stuff!

I decided to try the famous French tea food, macaroons with my tea. From what I can tell (and taste), macaroons are basically an outer layer of dry sugar with a thick layer of sticky, semi-liquid sweetness inside. The ones I had were of flavours vanilla, caramel, rose-petal and berry fruit. I know some people think it's too sweet, but I personally really liked them.

Having tea the French way was fun, but perhaps we will stick to English tea next time, (and it will also mean less of a headache to read menus that contain only one language!)

Angelina to pen autobiography

Angelina Jolie is reportedly planning an autobiography based on her Hollywood career and work travelling the globe with the U.N.

Naomi Campbell case follow-up

Naomi Campbell, seen here on her way to and from the Midtown Manhattan North Precinct office, was released on her own recognizance today after being arrested for allegedly attacking her 41-year-old housekeeper. Arraigned on a charge of second-degree assault, the supermodel's lawyer entered a plea of not guilty on her behalf. The housekeeper was allegedly hit in the back of the head at about 8:30 this morning, and treated in hospital for a cut that required four stitches. A spokesperson for the supermodel said, "We believe this is a case of retaliation, because Naomi had fired her housekeeper earlier this morning. We are confident the courts will see it the same way."
