I'm still in the Holy Land, but I couldn't resist posting this picture of the world's most famous dog - Boo. If you're anything like me, you follow Boo's Facebook updates and obsessively "like" his daily picture updates. I can't say I'll buy the book, but I will watch the book signing video. Enjoy!

The Duchess of Cambridge got some one-on-one time with Queen Elizabeth on Friday. Kate Middleton and her grandmother-in-law went on a tour of the new Buckingham Palace exhibition featuring Kate's Alexander McQueen wedding dress, Cartier Halo tiara and three-foot tall wedding cake. The duo, who reportedly have not spent much time together, looked pretty friendly during the walk-through. The Queen even showed off her dry humor, joking about the dress, "Horrid, isn't it? Horrid and dreadful." Prince William must be so proud of his granny and his bride.

RIP Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home. Cause of death has not been determined, but the 27-year-old recently spent time in rehab for alcohol and drug problems.

The Rehab singer joins the immortal list of celebrities who died at age 27, including Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. Initial reports say that the troubled star overdosed at her home, but few seem surprised that she finally succumbed to her addictions.

Update: The Metropolitan Police released the following statement:

"Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.

On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained."

Updated: Amy's U.S. record label released the following statement:

"We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer. Our prayers go out to Amy's family, friends and fans at this difficult time."

Paris Fail

Looks like Paris Hilton forgot to memorize her script. The heiress was questioned by ABC News about if she ever feels like her moment has passed. Paris responded by sneering at the reporter and promptly got out of her chair to converse with her publicist. She returned to the set with a very well rehearsed answer. It's too bad she couldn't remember her original response - it would have made a world of difference.

Black and Jewish

Drake, Lenny Kravitz, Lauren London and Rashida Jones are called out in Kali Hawk and Katerina Graham's new Funny or Die video, Black and Jewish. Enjoy!

Odd Couple

Hollywood relationships have a tendency to surprise observers. Be it Lost star Doug Hutchison's marriage to a 16-year-old aspiring porn star singer or Jennifer Anniston's new bad boy beau Justin Theroux, some stars have a knack for shocking us. The latest odd couple? Ryan Phillippe and Demi Lovato.

The 36-year-old has been seeing the 18-year-old ex-Disney star for a while. A source claims their hook ups were "hot and heavy," but it "was nothing serious." Ryan, the father of Reese Witherspoon's children Ava and Deacon, became a father for the third time earlier this month when ex-girlfriend Alexis Knapp gave birth to daughter Kai. Ryan and Demi were seeing each other at the time, and apparently Demi only found out when it happened. It was said to have thrown her for a loop.

Do you think this odd couple will last?

Rebecca Black's Moment

Her debut song Friday became infamous after its viral YouTube debut, but Rebecca Black isn't finished cashing in on her 15 minutes of fame. The teenager released her follow up song, My Moment, today. While critics are panning it, Black sure knows how to make the most of her instant fame.

Harper Seven's Social Debut

Harper Seven, the one-week old daughter of David and Victoria Beckham, is too chic for magazine covers. Foregoing the million dollar paycheck for the masses, the Beckham's debuted their baby on Facebook and Twitter. "Daddy's little girl," is how Victoria captioned the Twitpic of her angel, while David Facebooked, "I took this picture of my two girls sleeping." Isn't she sweet?

Single Lady

J.Lo is back on the block! Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony announced yesterday that they are ending their eight year marriage. "This was a very difficult decision. We have come to an amicable conclusion on all matters," the couple said in a statement. We can only assume that the "all matters" refers to finances, property and, most importantly, the pair's three-year-old twins Max and Emme.

The split isn't very surprising to most Hollywood revelers. Since marrying Marc, Jennifer has had to tone down her loud personality to please her reserved husband. The midrif baring outfits and late nights out were replaced for quiet time at home. It's also rumored that Jennifer's successful career and recent American Idol hosting duties upset the lesser-known Marc.

Who do you think Jennifer's next conquest will be?

Hollywood's baby boom is producing a bevy of peculiar names. Natalie Portman was first with Aleph, followed by Victoria Beckham with Harper Seven and now Kate Hudson with Bingham.

Call me crazy, but I actually like Harper Seven and Aleph. Blame it on my fascination with British culture (Harper), numerology (Seven is my favorite number) or Hebrew (Aleph), but I actually don't mind those monikers. I have no love for Bingham, though.

Bingham "Bing" Hawn Bellamy was born on Saturday, July 9 and weighed 7lbs 12oz. The baby boy remained nameless until today when his father, muse frontman Matt Bellamy, tweeted his son's moniker to his 85,000+ fans. According to Matt, Bingham is his mother's maiden name and Bing was also the name of Kurt Russell's father. It's nice that they're keeping the name in the family, but I'm still not a fan.  Reminds me of Microsoft's search engine - Bing.

What do you think of the name?

Want to bet...

...that the community manager at US Weekly meant to post this to his or her personal account?

Update: The tweeter was was Rivals contestant Tyler Duckworth. He was live tweeting about the show. Knowing that it wasn't an US Weekly staffer tweeting about "shitting himself," wanting to "bang him" and "#gladimgay." do you still think that the tweets were inappropriate? I do. Despite Tyler being a contestant, he needs to realize that @usweekly is a brand and his views, and poor choice of words, are reflecting those of the magazine. 

Glee Goodbyes

Glee's only entering its third season, but the hit show is already preparing to say goodbye to three of its stars. Creator Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer will not be back for the fourth season of the hit musical.

"You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophmores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year," said Murphy. "We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought it was a good idea."

Are you said to see the main gleeks go?

Royal Wave

They're en route to Britain now, but the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge outshone Hollywood's stars in Los Angeles this weekend. Prince William and Kate Middleton were in sunny California for the final leg of their North American tour. From a polo game to Skid Row and the BAFTA gala, the future king and queen of England continued to enthral royal watchers.

Donning a lilac Alexander McQueen dress with earrings on loan from the Queen, Kate was the epitome of glamor at the BAFTA awards. With her dashing prince by her side, Kate truly proves that fairy tales do come true.

Now that Kate's 40+ outfits from the North American tour are packed up, what can we expect to see her wearing in England?

The king and queen of the Upper East Side were frolicking among real royalty at last night's BAFTA Brits to Watch Gala in Los Angeles. Gossip Girl stars Blake Lively and Ed Westwick were invited to the exclusive BAFTA gala with Prince William and Kate Middleton. The duo looked dashing - think they discussed Blair's pregnancy?

After raising three boys, David and Victoria Beckham finally have a little girl to spoil. Harper Seven Beckham made her fashionable debut at 7:55 am, weighing in at 7 lbs, 10 oz. According to the proud daddy's Facebook page, "Victoria is doing really well and her brothers are delighted to have a baby sister." Can't wait to see what Harper will wear in her public debut!

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have made their own rules during their first North American tour. Defying royal protocol, the ever-adorable Prince William and Kate Middleton have touched, hugged and even kissed during their fashionable appearances. The latest PDA was the best - a kiss following Prince William's polo match in Santa Barbara. His wife sweetly planted a kiss on each kiss to congratulate her competitive husband following his winning match. Cue the "aw."

Baby Boom

It's a big weekend for baby Hollywood with both Kate Hudson and Victoria Beckham giving birth to Tinsletown's hottest tots. Kate's prediction of a girl was off as she saw blue with her nameless bundle of joy, while Victoria's little girl will have to bend it like Beckham in pink.

Finally - a look I don't like. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge went east for the Calgary Stampede and donned traditional western wear for the occasion. Dressed down in jeans and collared shirts, Prince William and Kate topped off their looks with white cowboy hats. They still have the look of love, but they're too regal for this.

TGIF ft. Keenan and GLEE

Ever wondered what goes on backstage at a Glee concert? Apparently, this. YouTube sensation Keenan Cahill stopped by the Glee Live tour to film a cover of Katy Perry's TGIF with Darren Criss, Jenna Ushkowitz, Dianna Agron and Harry Shum Jr. Not one of Keenan's best, but still cute!

All About Pippa

Royal wedding pandemonium is still going at full force, and Pippa Middleton is still behing hailed as the latest it girl. After stealing the show at her sister, Duchess Kate's, wedding to Prince William, Pippa's smiling face continues to grace countless magazines. The latest? Britain's Tatler magazine, who gave Pippa the Andy Warhol treatment. Love her.

Made in Canada

As if the world wasn't already anxiously awaiting the royal baby, Kate Middleton set the rumor mill into overload today. While in Quebec City on Sunday, the Duchess of Cambridge was handed a bouquet by the two-year-old daughter of a British expat. The father then wished her well in her efforts in her efforts to start a family, prompting Kate to thank him and proclaim, "Yes, I hope to."

Those four little words have created a media firestorm about the upcoming offspring off everyone's favorite royal couple. Can you imagine if Kate gives birth in nine months? The royal baby will be made in Canada - literally!

In other royal news, the too-cute couple made a splash in Prince Edward Island today. With his wife proudly snapping pictures from the shore, Prince William participated in a "water bird" emergency landing exercise aboard a Canadian Forces Sea King helicopter. Apparently the Prince intends to teach his RAF unit the technique when he goes back to England.

The couple also got competitive during a dragon boat race. Will and Kate each headed up their own boat, and when asked who would win, William boasted, "We are. Of course." It wasn't surprising that the Prince's prediction was spot-on, but what is shocking is his PDA with his wife! They may be married, but the royals never touch each other. Ever. Try finding a picture of Charles and Diana or The Queen and Prince Philip touching. Let me tell you - it's tough. It's sweet to see that Prince William and Duchess Kate are defying tradition and letting their love shine. I love them.

Essie Girl

Every season I pick a new shade for my nails. Weekly polish changes are a must when you truly want to show off your new hue. I used to be an OPI fanatic. I alternated between their Miami Beet, Rumples Wiggin and Funny Bunny depending on the season and my skin color. This year, though, I've become an Essie girl.

I discovered Essie's Merino Cool in the fall and wore it obsessively until summer. Now that the sun has finally made regular weekend appearances and I've managed to finally tan my pale skin, it was time to find my perfect summer color. Enter Essie's Borrowed and Blue. The light blue polish is actually part of the company's wedding collection, but I think it's the perfect colour to complement a summer tan. I paired it with my new turquoise studded bracelet from Honey - perfection.

Royal Celebrities

Royal wedding pandemonium is far from over in our home and native land. With Prince William and Duchess Catherine parading around Canada, it's impossible to get their picture-perfect faces out of our heads. Over 1,000 accredited press are following their every move and it's clear that the young royals are living up to everyone's expectations. From greeting fans to planting trees and taking cooking lessons, Will and Kate are showing everyone that they're the new, friendly face of the monarchy.

The celebrity status bestowed among the newlyweds is only increasing with every picture plastered on the internet. Their smiling faces prove to us normal folk that fairy tales do come true (hello Princess Kate!) and that true love does prevail. After all, what young girl didn't dream of becoming a princess with a revered wardrobe? Princess Kate, we bow down to you.
