Prince Harry’s Favorite Bond — Not Daniel Craig: Prince Harry and Prince William attended the world premiere of “Quantum of Solace” in London Wednesday night, where an also-in-attendance Prince Harry was heard extolling the greatness of a James Bond — but it wasn’t Daniel Craig. “There’s only one Bond… Sean Connery,” Harry said on the red carpet, People reported. No word if Harry’s comments left Daniel shaken…or stirred!
“Gossip Girl” Star To “Melrose Place” Spin-Off?: Could “Gossip Girl’s” Kelly Rutherford be leaving her posh Upper East Side digs for chic LA in the new “Melrose Place” spin-off? “If they offered me a lot of money!” she joked with Us Weekly Wednesday at the FURLA Talent Hub party in NYC. “I don’t know, maybe, as a guest spot. It would really depend, I think, on the script and how they would want me to come back.” Kelly played Dr. Michael Mancini’s wife, Megan, on the original “Melrose.” As much as we love Kelly, we’re most excited about the idea of Laura Leighton returning as Sydney, the character who stole her sister’s husband, cat fought a young Marcia Cross & Heather Locklear and then joined a cult! Could mid-90’s TV save TV in 2008? We’ll be watching!
Brad & Angie’s Knox Has Dad’s Pep: Brad Pitt’s son, Knox, appears to be following in the footsteps of his dad, according to musician Wyclef Jean, who told Us Weekly that the twin is “a little bit” like Brad. “The energy! He has Brad’s energy!” Wyclef told the mag. We would expect nothing less from the son of the man who stars in blockbusters, helps emerging nations overcome crisis, builds homes in Louisiana — and looks after six kids!
