sharon stone steals the show

The 2021 Festival de Cannes brought stars from around the world to the stunning South of France, but for Sharon Stone it was a particularly momentous occasion, when she was named a Commander of the Order of Arts and Letters, which recognises significant contribution to the arts. The 63-year-old was in tears when she was awarded the gong and was quick to plant a kiss on actor Bill Murray’s cheek, who was there to congratulate her. Sharon also attended the glitzy amfAR benefit gala, which supports AIDS research, in a lilac dress adorned with crystals and feathers, with son Roan, 21. She’s also mum to Laird, 16, and Quinn, 15. Earlier this year, the Basic Instinct actress released her memoir, The Beauty of Living Twice, detailing her diffi culties following a brain haemorrhage…

queen of his heart charles’ secret declaration of love

Prince Charles was once dissuaded from choosing Camilla Parker Bowles when, as a pair of starry-eyed 20-somethings, they first fell head-over-heels in love. It’s not a mistake he’s prepared to make twice. Three months after his father, Prince Philip, was laid to rest, Charles has made it clear behind the scenes that Camilla will be crowned Queen Consort on the day he takes the throne. With his father gone and his beloved mother Queen Elizabeth II recently celebrating her 95th birthday, palace insiders say there’s no doubt the heir to the British throne is intensifying his preparations to step into the job he has been training for his entire life. And, at 72, he knows his mind much more than he did as a 21-year-old, when he first laid eyes on Camilla –…

writing’s on the wall

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, have dropped bombshell after bombshell on the House of Windsor this year – and shockwaves reverberated around palace corridors again last week when news broke that the Duke of Sussex has been secretly writing a book about his life. “There was no warning that a book was in the offi ng,” a source tells. “Prince Charles was taken by surprise.” “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born, but as the man I have become,” Harry said in a statement as he announced his lucrative deal with publishers Penguin Random House. “My hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we…

adele goes public with new love

Rumour Has It Adele has a new man! The British singer set tongues wagging last week when she sat courtside at a basketball game with sports agent Rich Paul, who is most famous for managing Lakers’ star LeBron James. Though the reveal of the new couple was a surprise to most – up until recently, she was linked to British rapper Skepta, 38 – it seems that the pair have been together for at least two months when Rich, 39, mentioned in an interview that they were “hanging out”. And a source confirms, “They are definitely dating.” While the notoriously private Adele didn’t give much away during their sports date, there was definitely a connection as the pair were seen laughing and chatting, and joining in the excitement of the arena during…

gentleman broadcaster philip’s final bulletin

During his decades-long reign as “Mr Credibility” on the airwaves, Philip Sherry was lauded for his calm and authoritative delivery of the television news. But behind the scenes, the respected broadcaster was also loved for his wit that was “as dry as the desert”. “Not everyone talks about Philip’s humour,” says fellow newsreader Eric Young. “And you knew a good line was coming when he started a sentence with, ‘my dear boy…’” Philip, who died at his home in Papamoa on July 18, aged 87, became a mainstay of New Zealand broadcasting from the moment he landed his first job as a radio continuity announcer for the New Zealand Broadcasting Service in 1960. But with the television era about to flourish in Aotearoa, it wasn’t long before he made the jump from radio…
