Who says Kate Middleton isn’t a diva? The Duchess recently got her hair cut by famed stylist Rossano Ferretti (who also worked with Princess Diana), reports Vanity Fair. Ferreti charges 600 pounds, or close to $1,000 for his so-called Method cut, done with texturizing scissors. Rumor has it Kate noticed a few grays and wanted an extreme hair makeover.

Dog fight

Prosecutors in Colorado have dismissed harassment charges against the wife of TV bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman. Beth Chapman had been accused of verbally harassing a 16-year-old girl at a Colorado lake in July. A police report said witnesses told investigators that she called the girl names for wearing inappropriate clothing at Monument Lake on July 10.

Art war

A reality television producer told a jury he believes Ryan O’Neal stole an Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett done in 1980. Witness Craig Nevius said he formed his opinion based on conversations with Fawcett and seeing the disputed Warhol portrait in the actress’ home in the final years of her life. The producer informed the University of Texas at Austin of his concerns and the school sued O’Neal to gain possession of the artwork. The university claims in its suit that Fawcett left the painting to the school as part of a donation but O’Neal took it from Fawcett’s condominium days after her death in 2009.

O’Neal’s attorney attacked the credibility of Nevius, noting the producer had been removed from a leadership position on a documentary about Fawcett’s battle with cancer. O’Neal says he had permission from the trustee of Fawcett’s estate to remove the artwork and contends it was a gift from Warhol.

Home invasion

Keri Russell is “fine,” says her rep after a break-in at her Brooklyn apartment. “Keri sends her thanks to the police.” The Americans star was asleep when she heard noises at about 3 a.m. Wednesday. Police say the newly single actress (she just split with hubby of five years, contractor Shane Deary) then found a window and front door open and a laptop, jewelry and a purse missing. Two suspects were arrested. Time for a new alarm system.

Free at last

Amanda Bynes is out of rehab following an involuntary stay and is now living with her family in a quiet California ’hood. Good sign: She was seen shopping for clothes -- sans wig. Nothing like retail therapy, but why didn’t she show up at a NYC court Thursday in her bong-tossing case?
