Middleton sisters featured in ‘True Hollywood Story’

Millions of people around the world tuned in to watch the royal wedding in April as Prince William and Kate Middleton said their vows. And it was that same day that much of the world was introduced to Kate’s sister, Pippa.

Now fans can tune in to watch a special “E! True Hollywood Story” that follows the new Duchess of Cambridge and her captivating sibling.

The sisters have captured the hearts and minds of millions with their sense of fashion and seeming closeness.

“Kate and Pippa have always been incredibly close,” royals author Claudia Joseph told the Los Angeles Times. “You can see the warmth between them; they spend a lot of time together. When Kate and William broke up [temporarily], it was Pippa she went on the town with.”

The E! special is aimed at documenting the tale of how these “commoner” sisters have been launched into the international spotlight of royalty.

“‘E! True Hollywood Story’ paints a portrait of these dynamic siblings who have captured the affection of millions around the globe,” the network said. “From their quaint childhood, through their times on the London social scene and finally to where they are today, ‘THS’ reveals the remarkable story of two beauties who rose to celebrity status in the most magical way.”

This time, fans won’t have to wake up in the middle of the night to watch the special live, as was the case with the royal wedding. The program airs at 10 p.m. Wednesday.

Weezer bassist predicted his death on Twitter

In the weeks before former Weezer bassist Mikey Welsh was found dead in a Chicago hotel room Saturday, he sent out several messages via Twitter and Facebook that seemed to predict his demise.

“Dreamt I died in Chicago next weekend (heart attack in my sleep). Need to write my will today,” Welsh tweeted Sept. 26. Then, “correction - the weekend after next.”

On his Facebook page, Welsh - who took up painting after his stint in the famous pop-punk band - wrote beneath a showcase photo of a painting he was selling that the price was $250 “if i am still alive at time of purchase, price to increase exponentially if I expire prematurely.”

The tweets and Facebook post since have been scrubbed from his accounts.

Staff at the Raffaello Hotel discovered Welsh’s body after he failed to show up for a 1 p.m. checkout time. Authorities suspect he died of a drug overdose.

A statement on Weezer’s website praised Welsh’s contribution to the band: “We will never forget him. His chapter in the Weezer story (‘98-‘01) was vital, essential, wild and amazing.”

Woody Allen would cast first lady in his movies

Now that first lady Michelle Obama has proven herself to be a dancing sensation at a middle school dance-off in support of her anti-obesity campaign, she may just get the chance to tear up the big screen.

Legendary director Woody Allen recently told the British talk show “Daybreak” that he would invite the first lady to be in one of his movies if he deemed her fit for the role.

“If I was in a room with Michelle Obama, and I thought she was right for a part, I wouldn’t hesitate to ask her,” Mr. Allen said on the television show.

The New York native, who directed this year’s “Midnight in Paris,” said he cast Carla Bruni-Sarkozy in the movie after having a meal with the French first lady and her husband, Nicolas Sarkozy.

Mrs. Obama has had her fair share of camera time, so perhaps she would transition easily to the silver screen. Earlier this year, the first lady made a guest appearance on the Nickelodeon sitcom “iCarly.”

The episode revolved around main character Carly breaking rules in an attempt to video chat with her father, who is serving in the military overseas. Portraying herself, Mrs. Obama learns of Carly’s endeavors and pays the young girl a visit to discuss the importance of family contact while soldiers serve abroad.
