"It's a big deal. I've been on the road. I just got home, so it's really going to be like now that's the time for me to sit down and think about what I want. The same thing as our engagement, we're kind of doing it at our own pace. We have no idea right now." NICOLE RICHIE is finally ready so start planning her wedding to fiance JOEL MADDEN.
The Simple Life star was travelling to the city to promote her fashion designs for her Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960 labels.
And she was delighted when her business partners Rick and Brian Cytrynbaum allowed her to enter the cockpit of their jet and take over the controls.
Richie, who recently announced her engagement to rocker Joel Madden, later took to her online blog to show off photos of herself in action, telling fans, "This past Thursday, I flew to Montreal... and by flew, I mean I actually flew. My partners, Rick and Brian, let me be the co-pilot once again on their jet! It was so much fun! Now if only everyone else on the flight felt the same way.”
Richie's not the only celebrity to fly the friendly skies - supermodel Gisele Bundchen is working towards her pilot's license, while Hilary Swank and Angelina Jolie have also been taking flying lessons.
The socialite and former reality TV star has small tattoos of her own while the Good Charlotte rocker's arms are fully inked.
And Richie admits she would be "heartbroken" if little Harlow, two, and Sparrow, five months, decided to take after their dad and tattoo themselves all over when they grow up - so she's set a strict age limit for the pair.
She says, "To be honest, I would be heartbroken, but what can I say? I would say wait until you're 18, that's what I would say."
The 40-year-old fashion icon, real name Lee McQueen, was found dead at his London home on Thursday (11Feb10) following an apparent suicide, and Moss has spoken out to express her grief.
A statement released by her representatives reads, "Kate is shocked and devastated at the tragic loss of her dear friend Lee McQueen. Her thoughts are with his family at this sad time."
Tributes from celebrity fans and the fashion elite flooded Twitter.com on Thursday as stars including Kelly Osbourne, Kim Kardashian, Kirstie Alley, Jenna Elfman, Joel Madden, Russell Simmons, Katy Perry and Donatella Versace took to the social networking blog to pay tribute to McQueen.
Versace wrote, "Alexander McQueen was unique. His imagination had no limits, he had an amazing personality and his creativity was genius."
The 30 year old has been dating Dr John Diaz since last year (09), but the couple has now ended its relationship.
Monk, who was previously engaged to Good Charlotte star Benji Madden, insists the split was amicable - and they are going to stay pals.
She tells Sydney radio station 2DayFM, "He is a lovely guy and we're still really good friends so there is nothing crazy about the split. Sometimes it just doesn't work out - especially with me."
The Australian stunner, who was once engaged to rocker Benji Madden, has revealed she has been hassled by The Hoff ever since they met on the set of the movie Click.
She says, "I've been stalked by the Hoff but he's a sweetie-pie."
Monk reveals the actor-turned-reality TV star helped her through a painful break-up.
She adds, "He would say things like, 'Let's go get some Hoff-ee'."
The couple has been keeping the romance under wraps but now they're beginning to talk about each other - and star spotters are catching public displays of affection.
The pair was spotted at a Melrose Avenue coffee shop recently in Los Angeles and couldn't seem to keep their hands off one another.
A bystander says, "He was rubbing her lower back and the top of her butt, and she was hanging on his shoulder. They were laughing and flirting the entire time."
And now Madison, who briefly dated illusionist Cris Angel after splitting from Hefner last year (08), has taken one step closer to a true confession about her new man.
She tells Life & Style magazine, "You can say I’m hanging out with someone I have a crush on."
Friends tell the publication Madden is her secret crush.
The socialite checked herself into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center last week (begs16Nov09) after struggling to shake off what she thought was a cold.
Her boyfriend, Joel Madden, announced on Twitter.com the star was back at home, but several days later, Richie has revealed she's still struggling to get her health back on track - and she's crediting her fans' support for helping her through.
Taking to her online blog, Richie writes "Right now it's important for me to stay in bed and recover. Reading all of your messages on Twitter and my website has really brightened my spirits and I am so grateful for the support. I look forward to seeing you all very soon and wish you a happy Thanksgiving. I’d like to thank you all for the kind words and well wishes over the past few weeks."
The socialite checked herself into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center earlier this week (begs16Nov09) after struggling to shake off what she thought was a cold.
But Richie is well on the road to recovery and is now resting in the comfort of her own home.
Her boyfriend Joel Madden writes on his Twitter.com blog, "So I stepped off the plane after a month out of the country, and basically went straight to the hospital for the week.
"But don't worry, all is well and we are home with no problems."
