The Prince is Single Again!

Prince William and Kate Middleton have ended their four year relationship igniting the hopes of many a young girl who has had a crush on the young prince. Sadly, many people in England were eagerly awaiting the day these two would have a lavish royal wedding like that of Princess Diana.

Nobody knows the actual reason for the split but The Sun has reported that William and Kate were under a lot of pressure and William was wanting to focus on his career. William is set to dedicate the next few years of his life to the military after graduating from Sandhurst Military Academy.

The couple have been dating since they met at St. Andrews University. Kate is followed by the paps wherever she goes and I think that might be a huge reason for the split. Princess Diana was such an icon and to be the next Princess is a huge responsibility for any young woman.

Next up! Who is Prince William dating next? Me I tell you ME ME ME!

I Really Hope They are Dating

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough are the cutest couple ever. I know that they are just a couple on “Dancing With the Stars” but they have the most chemistry of any pair on the show. I really hope that something is going on and if I was one of those Body Language Experts in Us Weekly I totally would say that there is some somethin somethin.

Fashion Victim of the Week

Penny Marshall what happened to you? There is something about the combo of fake tan, wierd necklaces and big black tablecloth that you are wearing that freaks me out. I know that you are a creative type but when you leave the house just take a second and look in the mirror. Ask yourself, “do I look good? will people laugh behind my back when they see me?” I don’t even want to talk about the glasses.

Jena Malone Has a Rock Band?



Yes, yes she does. Jena Malone and Her Bloodstains. I’m not making that up. That’s the name of the band. Doesn’t it sound more like the name of a Judy Blume novel? Are You There, God? It’s Me, Jena Malone and Her Bloodstains. Her band played at the Viper Room in Hollywood on Friday night.

Oh, and Cory Kennedy was there. I have an unhealthy obsession with Cory Kennedy. I don’t know why, or perhaps I prefer not to think about it too much.

There’s a New Cat in Town

Our background image for this weekend is Miss Cocorico, the adorable kitty of Beet reader Anita. Her name, apparently, is the sound a rooster makes in French, which, frankly, makes way more sense than “cock a doodle doo.” I mean, think about it, does a rooster say “doodle”? Ever? Have you ever in your life heard a rooster make anything even approximating the sound sequence in “doodle”? No. We Americans are so weird.

Google’s Buying DoubleClick


Sigh. Remember when we were just really excited to have such a good search engine? Via the AP:

Seeking to expand its already well-honed ability to sell targeted Internet advertisements, online search leader Google Inc. said it has agreed to pay $3.1 billion in cash to acquire ad-management technology company DoubleClick Inc.

The two companies announced the deal after the markets closed Friday. The boards of both companies have approved the takeover, which is expected to close by the end of the year.

New York-based DoubleClick helps its customers place and track online advertising, including search ads, which Google — more than its nearest search competitors Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp. — has turned into an extremely lucrative business.
