Spice Girls reuniting Us: "Spice Girls singer Melanie Brown revealed the band will be reuniting this summer during a recent interview on Australian TV - but contrary to reports, it won't be for the 2012 Olympics opening ceremony. "I think the Queen's Jubilee concert is the event I'd be looking at more closely for that to happen," the 36-year-old said. Realizing she revealed too much, the singer quickly changed the subject. According to The Sun, Brown told TV crew members backstage: "I am going to be in such strife for saying that. It's all so totally bloody top-secret still." The "Scary" musician and her bandmates - Victoria "Posh" Beckham, 37, Geri "Ginger" Halliwell, 39, Emma "Baby" Bunton, 36, and Melanie "Sporty" Chisholm, 38 - last performed together during a reunion tour that kicked off in 2007. "I'm always down for a Spice Girls reunion," Brown said. "I love the Scary hair and platforms. Any time of day or night I'll be there." To mark 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II's reign, the Diamond Jubilee will take place on June 4, 2012. The group will perform in front of the royal family, including Prince William, 29, and Kate Middleton, 30."
They'll soon find a way around that People: "Brad Pitt is well aware that an Internet search of his – or his partner, Angelina Jolie's – name yields hundreds of millions of results. But their kids would never know it. "On all the kids' computers we had our names blocked," the actor, 48, told Germany's Bild. "They can't Google their mom and dad. I don't want to make myself dependent on what other people think." Pitt adds that he and Jolie, 36, aren't exactly searching for themselves either. "We don't even notice all the noise," he said."
So sweet "Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony have found the secret to getting along - splitting up. Sources very close to the former couple tell TMZ ... months before the breakup, there was virtual radio silence between the two. We're told when they did talk, it was loud and contentious ... often ending in tears on Jennifer's part. But since the split, we're told their bond has materially strengthened. They are communicating and co-parenting well and not fighting at all. We're told they're actually happy to do joint appearances for their new show, as well as charity work. Sources say a number of people around them are saying there are signs of a possible reconciliation, although it is by no means certain."
Not Mary Louise Parker, put still a Parker People: "The Linda Lovelace biopic has a new Gloria Steinem. Sarah Jessica Parker will replace Demi Moore as the feminist author and activist. Moore, 49, dropped out of Lovelace, starring Amanda Seyfried as the '70s porn star, after Moore was hospitalized this week. A 911 caller reported the actress had gone into convulsions after she "smoked something." Moore is now seeking "professional assistance to treat her exhaustion and improve her overall health," he rep says. Filming began last month in Los Angeles."
