Kate Middleton and Queen Elizabeth have an arty party

 

Kate Middleton and her grandmother in law Queen Elizabeth II had quite the party Monday night.

They were celebrating the Queen's 60 years as patron of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, and welcomed British film and such stage stars as Dame Helen Mirren to Buckingham Palace.

The Duchess of Cambridge was said to be wearing a recycled (!) Alexander McQueen wool crepe red dress, which was first donned to the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant in 2012. FYI: The 32-year-old did not look pregnant in the least, as some tabloids have blared.

It’s a match

After all that PDA, Michelle Rodriguez has confirmed her relationship with Cara Delevingne. The Fast & Furious star, 35, told UK’s The Mirror that the 21-year-old model was “cool” and things were going well. Rodriguez has said she is bisexual and was linked to her F&F costar Vin Diesel and S.W.A.T. co-star Olivier Martinez.

Health concerns

David Crosby has undergone heart surgery and is postponing his California shows. Publicist Michael Jensen tells City News Service that the 72-year-old had a cardiac catheterization last week to fix a blocked coronary artery.

More, more, more

Believe it: Charlie Sheen wants more kids with his new fiancee, adult film star Brett Rossie. But the 48-year-old father of five has confirmed he will not be getting a prenuptial agreement. Sucker or a romantic? “Prenups poison marriages,” Sheen told TMZ.

Speaking of prenups, Gabrielle Union revealed to Arsenio Hall she told Dwyane Wade she indeed wanted to sign on the dotted line. “The biggest difference between this and the last marriage will be a prenup,” said Union (whose ex is retired NFL running back Chris Howard). “At my insistence.” Union added (jokingly) that she’d never seen the Heat star balance a checkbook.

    Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley no longer speak: Is it because of Scientology?

    Que paso? Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Kirstie Alley used to be so close. They met as partners on Dancing with the Stars and stayed in touch but these days they no longer speak. “She stopped getting along with me,” Chmerkovskiy told Andy Cohen on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live. “I got a message now that I am associating with other people that she can't be associated with, I am no longer to be spoken with, and sorry, but it is what it is.” Jennifer Lopez, rumored to be dating the dancer, is besties with Leah Remini, who recently left the Church of Scientology, and that perhaps doesn’t sit well with Alley, who remains loyal to Tom Cruise’s church.

    At 88, Hollywood legend Lee Grant looks back in ‘I Said Yes to Everything’

    Actress Lee Grant came that close to washing Shampoo out of her hair when co-star Warren Beatty told her how to play the scene when she learns he has seduced her character’s daughter. The matter got resolved after she spoke to the actual director, Hal Ashby, and then to Beatty again. Not only did she win an Oscar for the role, but she and Beatty became great friends, even sharing a few passionate kisses after filming ended.
