Today's Evil Beet Gossip

I Really Don’t Think Wills is Marrying Kate Anytime Soon

Kate Middleton

So this article has the Internet all abuzz this morning. It’s an article from the U.K.’s Daily Mail, and it’s been as slow a news week in Britain as it has over here, so this is what they’re running.

Check out the actual quotes here:

Royal photographer Arthur Edwards says, “She’s in love with Prince William. I’m sure one day they’ll get married…I have talked to him about that and he’s made it clear… he wants to get married.”

And then Clarence House is all like “Prince William has no plans to get engaged.”

So will he marry her sometime? Possibly. I think she’s adorable (although I find her taste in hats to be questionable at best) and obviously he does too. She is much loved by Englanders, and I think it would be wonderful for the country if Wills married her (plus princess stories are always fun). Kate is older than Diana was when she married into the royal family (Kate’s 25 now, Diana was barely 20), and so hopefully with that added maturity she will have an easier ride than Diana did.

But I just don’t think there’s anything in this article to imply that Wills is popping the question anytime soon. Daily Mail is bored this week, just like the rest of us; with Anna Nicole in the ground and Britney in rehab, there’s just not much to do but wildly speculate on Prince William’s marriage prospects.

AmIdol Fights Back!


Too funny. American Idol has barred The View from using clips from the show, after Rosie O’Donnell mouthed off about them one too many times. I guess the number-one show in the country doesn’t really need the free PR from ABC’s gabfest, but the girls of The View made a point of laughing about their new punishment (video here), and we’re all going to write about it today, because it’s funny, and a portion of you are going to watch The View tomorrow as a result. So, in effect, the producers American Idol did Rosie and Babwa a big favor here.

Captain America Bites It

I know I’m the only thing even close to a comic book reader around here, Beet and T used to smoke outside the store I frequented and make fun of me. That’s part of the reason I’m so angry today.

But I have news that affects us all, and it’s about comic books. You ready? Brace yourself.

They’ve killed Captain America. It’s true, look here.

Marvel says the comic story line was intentionally written as an allegory to current real-life issues like the Patriot Act, the War on Terror and the September 11 attacks.

Perhaps I’m the only one freaked out by this, but it should be a sad day for us all. When guys named Captain America start getting whacked by fellow Americans it might be time to take a look at some shit that’s going down.

Oh Snap!

Scojo has totally let the world know what she thinks of Lindsay Lohan in Parade Magazine. She doesn’t mention Lindsay outright but this quote leaves little to the imagination. Talking about her work habits Scarlett lets us know that, unlike some party-happy starlets, she gets to work on time.

“I’m very responsible when I’m working. I’ve just been doing it for a long time, and I’m not the kind of person who is going to show up to work three hours late, or maybe not come at all. That’s just not who I am. That just has to do with the fact that I understand that everybody else comes to work, and we would all like to get an extra four hours of sleep, but what can you do?”.

Scarlett is a class act. She can be famous without whoring herself out to the paparazzi twenty minutes after she gets out of rehab. The creepy thing, however, is that they both dated Jared Leto. Ew.
