Nicole Richie gives birth to son Sparrow


Nicole Richie gives birth to son Sparrow

Nicole Camille Richie (born September 21, 1981) is an American actress, author, socialite, celebutante, singer, and television personality. The adopted daughter of soul singer Lionel Richie, she is perhaps best known for her role in the Fox reality television series The Simple Life, alongside fellow socialite and best friend Paris Hilton. She has a daughter, Harlow Winter Kate Madden and a son, Sparrow James Midnight Madden, with boyfriend Joel Madden of Good Charlotte.

Early life and family

Nicole Richie was born Nicole Camille Escovedo in Berkeley, California. In an interview with Ryan Seacrest in November 2005, Richie stated that she doesn’t publicly identify her birth parents “for confidentiality reasons,” and that they were friends of Lionel Richie and his wife Brenda before her birth.

At first, Lionel became her guardian. Then at age 2, Nicole went to live with Richie and his wife, Brenda Harvey, who began to raise her as their daughter. When she was three years old, Nicole began attending weekly sessions with a psychotherapist and remained in therapy throughout her childhood. She was legally adopted by the Richies when she was nine. Shortly after the adoption was formalized, Lionel’s affair with another woman became public knowledge. The Richies went through a highly-publicized, bitterly acrimonious split, and as a result, indulged Nicole’s every whim. “Their way of making me happy was to say yes to everything I wanted, but I don’t think a little girl should have that much freedom,” said Richie in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine. Lionel Richie remarried following the divorce, and through him, Nicole has two younger siblings, Myles (born 1994) and Sofia (born 1998).

Richie has one godmother, Nancy Davis, daughter of Marvin Davis and mother of Brandon Davis. Richie’s godfathers are Michael Jackson[7] and Quincy Jones. Jones said in a People magazine interview that he has “known Nicole Richie since she was a baby. She’s a very smart girl”. 


In addition to figure skating, Richie studied the guitar, cello, violin, and piano. In 1986, she started kindergarten at The Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California where she met Paris Hilton. Richie graduated from Montclair College Preparatory School in 1999. She also studied Arts and Media for two years at the University of Arizona

“In the middle of night, the very early hours of September 9, 2009, Sparrow James Midnight Madden was born to Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. Nicole, Joel, Harlow and Sparrow are all doing well. Thank you for all of your good wishes.”

Susan Boyle Is Coming to America – To Sing


Susan Boyle Is Coming to America – To Sing

Susan Margaret Boyle (born 15 June 1961) is a Scottish singer who came to international public attention in 2009 after she appeared as a contestant on Britain’s Got Talent.[3] Boyle became known when she sang “I Dreamed a Dream” from Les Misérables in the competition’s first round, first broadcast in the United Kingdom on 11 April 2009.[5] In the final of the third series of the show, Boyle finished in second place, behind dance troupe Diversity.

When she appeared on the Britain’s Got Talent stage for the first time, the audience and the judges appeared apprehensive and judgmental of her frumpy appearance. Upon finishing her song, she received a standing ovation from the live audience and unanimous praise from the judges. Simon Cowell is reported to be setting up a contract with Boyle with his Syco Music company label, a subsidiary of Sony Music.


Early life

Susan Boyle was born in Blackburn, West Lothian, Scotland, to Patrick Boyle, a miner, World War II veteran and singer at the Bishop’s Blaize, and Bridget, a shorthand typist, who were both immigrants from County Donegal, Ireland. She was the youngest of four brothers and six sisters.

Born when her mother was 47, Boyle was briefly deprived of oxygen during the difficult birth and was later diagnosed as having learning difficulties. Boyle says she was bullied as a child, and was nicknamed “Susie Simple” at school.

After leaving school with few qualifications, she was employed for the only time in her life as a trainee cook in the kitchen of West Lothian College for six months, and took part in government training programs. She visited the theatre from time to time to listen to professional singers,and performed at a number of local venues.

Her first dream – winning Britain’s Got Talent – didn’t come through. But nothing will keep Scottish singing phenom Susan Boyle’s second wish – to perform in America – from coming true.

Boyle, 48, is taking some time off from completing her album, due on Nov 24, to jet across the Atlantic and perform in the States next week. She will appear on the America’s Got Talent finale on Sept. 16, PEOPLE has learned.

To prepare for the show, the songstress from the small town of Blackburn in West Lothian, Scotland, has had two fittings this week at the up-market store Suzanne Neville in Beauchamp Place, London.

“It’s going to be sensational, really wow. But it’s obviously under wraps,” a rep for the designer says. “Susan was very excited when she came into the store about her performance and about the dress. She’s going to look amazing.”

Her American appearance will build on the remarkable buzz around her. She has already shown her career’s enormous potential, as the I Dreamed A Dream album has topped the Amazon.com’s pre-order charts.

WATCH: Susan Gets a Makeover

Boyle is still working on her upcoming album and has recorded the Madonna song “You’ll See,” PEOPLE confirms. She is thought to have chosen the song herself.

Her collection will also likely include tunes such as the Les Miserables hit that made her such an overnight sensation on Britain’s Got Talent. She eventually finished second in the contest.

Kim Cattrall turns clock back to Samantha’s days as a punk princess in Sex And The City sequel


Kim Cattrall turns clock back to Samantha’s days as a punk princess in Sex And The City sequel

Kim Victoria Cattrall (pronounced , rhyming with shall; born 21 August 1956) is a Canadian actress. She is known for her role as Samantha Jones in the HBO comedy/romance series Sex and the City, and for her leading roles in the 1980s films Police Academy, Big Trouble in Little China, and Mannequin.


Cattrall began her career before graduating from high school in 1972, when she left Canada for the United States. There, she attended the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and upon her graduation signed a five-year movie deal with director Otto Preminger, making her film debut in Preminger’s Rosebud in 1975. A year later, Universal Studios bought out that contract and Cattrall became one of the last participants of the Universal Contract Player System. During her time with Universal, she guest-starred in numerous television programmes of varying style and genre. In 1979, she played Dr. Gabrielle White in The Incredible Hulk and would go down in TV Hulk lore as one of the few characters who knew David Banner was alive and was the Hulk. In a successful transition to cinema, Cattrall starred opposite Jack Lemmon in his Oscar-nominated movie Tribute in 1980. The following year, she starred in the critically acclaimed Ticket to Heaven. She also had a guest role in the TV Mini-Series Scruples.

In 1982, Cattrall played Miss Honeywell (Lassie) in Porky’s, followed two years later by a role in the original Police Academy. In 1985, she starred in three movies: Turk 182, City Limits and Hold-Up, the latter with French star Jean-Paul Belmondo. In 1986, she played Kurt Russell’s brainy flame in the action film Big Trouble in Little China. In 1987, her lead role in Mannequin proved a huge success with audiences. One of her best-known film roles is that of Lieutenant Valeris in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

In Sex And The City, Samantha Jones is known among her friends and numerous lovers for her wild, flamboyant personality and style.

And as actress Kim Cattrall filmed a flashback scene for the SATC film sequel in New York today, it seems Sam’s brave dress sense stems back to the Eighties.

The 53-year-old actress rolled back the years – and the good taste – as she donned a pair of snake-print, fishnet leggings, a yellow and purple leopard-print vest, a denim studded waistcoat and red PVC ankle boots.

Looking every inch the Eighties punk princess, Kim wore a bushy peroxide blonde wig and carried a retro Sony Walkman on her belt.

In the scene, the twentysomething Samantha narrowly misses getting run over by a brown car as she dashes over Fifth Avenue near the Bergdorf Goodman department store.

After the car screeches to a halt in front of her and the driver starts beeping, feisty Sam gives him the finger before continuing her journey.

And it appears the scene in a case of history repeating itself after Kim filmed an identical scene – set in present day – several days ago.

Samantha’s wild look is in stark contrast to Kim’s real-life appearance in the Eighties, who was an upcoming actress starring in Mannequin and Big Trouble In Little China at the time.
