ROYAL WEDDING - THIS AND THAT and Richard Armitage


Colin Firth reacts to news of Kate's wedding. Shock, outrage, bloating... His wife was in Africa and he was so close to running off to America to see LucyP. and rescue her from her post traumatic Nacho encounter. And then this? What will he do? How will he cope? Did the oscar folks really like him? I mean really really like him? Will they ever find Matthew Macfadyen's body? It's in the basement but he's starting to regain consciousness - oh no - starting to realize he's not auditioning for the part of Helen Keller; absolutely shocked to hear that Diana died.


A Mexican teen who staged a 16-day hunger strike to try to get an invitation to the wedding between Kate Middleton and Prince William will be heading to London.
But Estibalis Chavez, 19, likely won't be getting inside Westminster Abbey to watch the vows. Instead, she'll be able to watch from the sidelines as thousands gather in London April 29 thanks to a donation from Octavio Fitch Lazo, the U.K. Press Association reports.

"It moved me to see that no one understood her very well...I think she is right to fight for what she wants," Lazo said.

Lazo, a private citizen who is a member of a lobbying group that wants Mexico to use silver coins, bought Chavez a plane ticket so she can take part in the festivities.
Chavez staged a hunger strike in February outside the British Embassy in Mexico City. She lost 19 lbs.


Future princesses -- they really are just like us!

Wearing a black Issa wrap dress and kitten-heeled camel-colored shoes, Kate Middleton hit King's Road earlier this week for a bit of pre-wedding shopping, The Telegraph reports.

Stopping at American favorite Banana Republic, the bride-to-be bought pieces from the store's summer collection -- perhaps for her upcoming honeymoon with Wills.

According to the newspaper, Kate told the staff that she "loves Banana Republic" and "will be shopping with them in future." The moderately-priced brand definitely fits Kate's fashion taste, with its go-to basics and classic casual wear.


UNDATED - A lot of wedding receptions have beer, but you can bet one beer created to honor the royal wedding won't be served at the festivities.

British brewery Brew Dog is out (or some would say up) with a new brew called Royal Virility Performance.

The brew, an India Pale Ale with 7.5 percent alcohol by volume, is laced with herbal Viagra, chocolate and goat weed.

Three bottles of the beer have as much oomph as one erectile dysfunction pill.

Clearly, Brew Dog is brewing up a little sarcasm and fun.

"A beer should be brewed with a purpose, not just because some toffs are getting married, so we created something at our brewery that will undermine those special edition beers and other assorted seaside tat, whilst at the same time actually give the happy couple something extra on their big day," the brewery says.

The brewery says some of the bottles have labels that read "Arise Prince Willy" and "Celebrate Big Willy Style." Yes, Prince William received them as a gift for his wedding night with Kate Middleton.

Only 1,000 bottles will be made and available through Brew Dog's website.

For your stiff drink, expect to pay a stiff price. It's $16.55 per bottle.

So theroyalcouple won't kiss at the altar and she won't say obey. I wonder if he'll say it?

Kate will shop at Banana Republic? Yeess, and Michelle Obama still shops at the Gap. Not happening in either case, too many folks lined up with their free clothing offers. Wouldn't it be lovely if all these clothing designers would say "hey, you with the money, pay for your own clothes, let us see you where them in public, and we'll give an equivalent amount to clothe the poor." Radical idea, famous/rich people paying their own way?

That beer is wasted on the young.
