Geri Halliwell is dating a millionaire energy drink tycoon, according to a U.K report. The former Spice Girls star has been linked to Red Bull boss Christian Horner after they were spotted walking arm-in-arm near her home in north London.
Horner recently split from his long-term partner, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
Halliwell reportedly ended her relationship with online betting tycoon Anton Kaszubowski last year (13). She has previously been linked to singer Robbie Williams and she has a seven-year-old daughter, Bluebell, with screenwriter Sacha Gervasi.
British actor Tom Hardy has teamed up with his writer father to create a new TV drama. The Dark Knight Rises star and his dad, Edward 'Chips' Hardy, have written a new detective TV show called Bluebell and the series has been commissioned by executives at U.K. channel Sky Atlantic, according to Britain's The Sun newspaper.
The pair has written the script together and Hardy will tackle the lead role.
A source says, "They have been working on it for a while as they initially submitted the pilot over a year ago. But now the contract has been signed and it's full steam ahead for the series. It is early days but it is being planned to be aired in 2015."
One Direction's Louis Tomlinson drew massive crowds on Wednesday (26Feb14) when he fulfilled his dream of playing for British soccer team Doncaster Rovers. Last year (13), the What Makes You Beautiful singer accepted a non-contract position on the team's reserve squad and was due to make his first appearance for the team in a match in September (13), but was forced to drop out due to injury.
However he finally made his debut with the team in a game against rivals Rotherham United at Doncaster's Keepmoat Stadium, much to the delight of the 5,333 fans who attended the game and the hundreds waiting outside the venue, who were mostly there to see Tomlinson on the field.
Fans of the teen heartthrob came from all across England, and he even drew international fans as well, from as far from Denmark, France, Italy and the U.S., according to BBC.com.
However attendees had to wait until the 65th minute of the game to see the 22 year old make his turn as a soccer pro, and by the 89th minute, he fell on his bottom when attempting a pass. Unfortunately, the game came to a 0-0 draw, but it did not dampen his spirits following his soccer debut.
After the game, he took to Twitter.com and wrote, "Wow what an incredible experience . Can't put into words how I feel I will never forget pulling on my own Doncaster Rovers shirt !! Really can't thank the team, the gaffer and every single person involved at Doncaster Rovers enough! I feel like a 10 year old again!
"And obviously a huge huge thank you to everyone who came down. a real credit to our fans. hope it was a good day out!"
Proceeds from the game went to local Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.

Actress and now country singer Laura Bell Bundy talks Anger Management, Hart of Dixie, growing up in Kentucky, being nominated for a Tony, and being the next big thing in country music. This multi-talented blonde is certainly a bombshell. She's just about to explode.
Congrats on joining the cast of Anger Management alongside Charlie Sheen. Tell us a bit about your character, Dr. Jordan Denby.
I am truly having a great time doing the show. Jordan is a high strung, recovering alcoholic, emotionally unstable hot mess, yet she cares about her work and is very conscientious trying desperately to keep it together. She and Charlie go at it a bit and push each other’s buttons. The dynamic is a lot of fun. There are always funny things happening on set...Feels like all I am doing is laughing.
You were the original Elle Woods in Legally Blonde: The Musical, which led to your Tony nomination. How did you feel when you found out you were nominated?
When I heard that I was nominated I thought for sure I was dreaming, then I thought I might be dead, or that I heard incorrectly. I was silent for about 30 seconds, and then I started jumping around and screaming all alone in my apartment. When people started calling congratulating me, I finally felt assured I was alive and what I heard was true.
You are no stranger to accolades. You were recently named part of CMT’S Next Women Of Country. What sets you apart from other country artists?
I believe that every artist must follow their heart and pay attention to what is the most satisfying creatively for them and notice when they feel most inspired. I feel most inspired when I am being original or creating music that is different, it must be bold or so honest that it might reveal too much, that's when you know you are going to connect. I don't gravitate toward the in between. I never have. It is too safe. Comfort is suicide as an artist. I think what sets me apart from other country artists right now is that I am exploring the world of beats meeting banjos.
Your character on Hart of Dixie is a lot of fun. Do you relate to her in any way? Will you continue your role on HOD as you move forward with Anger Management?
I have based Shelby on my mother so, yes, I do relate to her in the way I relate to my mother, who is a total hoot! She is a high energy, all synapses firing, sweet, driven, determined southern woman. When I play Shelby I often ask myself, "how would Lorna say this? What would mom do in this situation?" Although not as frequently, I am able to still make appearances in Bluebell this upcoming season.
"Two Step," your new single, has done very well. What do you think makes the song so popular?
People have been line dancing and two-stepping for generations. I think "Two Step" connects because it has a really strong sexy beat and makes you want to move, but also gives people an excuse to dance.
What’s next for you?
When I am not filming, I am making music and writing songs. I often do concerts around the country and some overseas. I'm putting out a brand new song Nov 5th called "Kentucky Dirty," the music video being released the following week. I also put out a new mix-tape with my buddy Huff D every month on my website and soundcloud that features popular tunes and my original material. Of course, I will keep doing Cooter County videos. That's my sketch comedy web series: www.cootercounty.com
One Direction star Louis Tomlinson's sporting dreams have come true after bosses at his beloved soccer team Doncaster Rovers signed him to a new deal. The pop star will wear a Rovers top with the number 28 on the back throughout the 2013/14 season and, as part of the deal, he'll play for the club's development squad.
Thrilled Tomlinson, who hails from Doncaster, says, "This has always been a childhood dream for me. I feel very honoured to have been asked to sign for Rovers."
The singer will donate the cash he has received from the club deal to the town's Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice.
He adds, "Being able to help both the club and the amazing charity Bluebell Wood is what it's all about."
British pop star Geri Halliwell was left red-faced during a visit to a zoo in Australia over the weekend (25-26May13) when a koala urinated in her purse. The Spice Girls singer has moved Down Under with her daughter Bluebell to take a judging job on reality TV series Australia's Got Talent, and she has been sightseeing in Sydney during her time off.
Halliwell visited the city's famous Taronga Zoo on Sunday (26May13), but got more than she bargained for in the koala enclosure when one of the creatures peed on her handbag.
The star posted a picture of the guilty party on her Twitter.com page with the caption, "He peed on my bag", adding, "I stepped in koala poo & he peed on my handbag - no probs."
Going into the Season 2 finale of Hart of Dixie on Tuesday night, there were a few things I was expecting: Zoe (Rachel Bilson) would inevitably regret her drunken one night stand with Wade (Wilson Bethel) that occurred at the end of last week's episode, but ultimately would look for a deeper meaning in their tryst and question her feelings for him and his feelings for her again. Or Zoe would also try to get together with her supposed soulmate George (Scott Porter), now that they were both single at the same time. And amid all of her emotional struggles, she would wrestle with the decision to go back to New York and accept a job at her old hospital, thus saying goodbye to Bluebell for good.
However, none of these things happened. Well, to be fair, they each happened but in ways I was not expecting. And that is what made "On the Road Again" the perfect season finale for a show like HOD. Let me explain...
First of all, Zoe didn't actually end up choosing between #Zade and #Zeorge, as the Bluebell public named the couples. In the end, she chose herself. She decided to move back to NYC for the summer and take up the job at her old hospital, give herself some space to figure out how she truly felt about Wade (after he confessed his love for her and promised he was ready for a real relationship now), and do what she loves in the city she loves. The distance would help her see things more clearly. As she told Wade, it was only three months.
The hopeful look on Wade's face when Zoe told him she'd be back in three months spoke volumes on how he feels, but the appearance of Jonah (Travis van Winkle) at the wedding Zoe was attending in NYC means the doctor probably won't be pining for Wade alone.
So, what about George? After pouring his broken heart out through song (and many, many beer pitchers), he realized, with the help of country performer Lily Anne (Amy Ferguson), that singing was actually therapeutic and joined her on the road to tour. With those lingering glances and musical chemistry, something tells me sparks might be flying on the road for these two.
The episode ended without any true resolution to the Zoe/George/Wade love triangle, because each component of the triangle found another entity to focus on/distract themselves with until the inevitable conflict rears its head again in Season 3. And while that might sound like it would make fans mad, that is actually the exact reason why this was the perfect season finale for HOD.
This show is all about adult relationships in a small town. Sure, sometimes those relationships can get melodramatic and unrealistic but most of the time, the couples on HOD represent real issues and struggles. People cheat, people fall out of love, people fall in love with people they used to hate, and nothing is ever tied up in a happily-ever-after bow. Life and love are messy and there is no The End once you've found happiness.
Maybe Zoe didn't choose George or Wade just yet, but she's got three months away in the city that never sleeps with a hot, uncomplicated doctor who just wants to have fun with her. George found a new way to pass the time, and someone to pass the time with. Wade finally realized he was ready for a real relationship, and can prove to Zoe he meant what he said by responsibly running the Rammer Jammer, cultivating his new successful business over the summer. Life will keep moving, and when Zoe returns to Bluebell in three months time, things will probably have changed. If she and Wade still feel the same way, then they can try again. If they don't, then the relationship was doomed to fail anyway.
The choices Zoe made were real, and in my opinion they showed major growth on her part. Instead of just jumping back in to a relationship, she's going to focus instead on herself. By using a bit of patience and thinking things through, she can make a healthy choice once she returns to Bluebell. And when Season 3 picks up this fall, you can be sure that the love triangle will also pick up steam again. After all, it isn't HOD without a little drama!

You pick up the newspaper (or iPad version of the Times because we live in the future now) the day after the Kentucky Derby and read the name of the winner. More often than not, it sounds like something a royally wasted guy in a nightclub might yell to his friends. "Mine That Bird! Thunder Gulch!" he might wail as he trips over his own knock-off Armani loafers. Perhaps, in the cab on the way home, he yelps "Gato Del Sol! Dust Commander!"
But, when you think about it, who's to say whether those names belong to prize-winning steeds or the latest offspring of Hollywood's starry-eyed (and sometimes loopy) elite? I mean, we're all fawning over a baby who goes by Blue Ivy Carter these days. How different could these names be? Not very, it turns out.

A cheerleader, gypsy, and a rich kid walk into Hemlock Grove. And that's pretty much all you learn during the first 45-minute installment of Netflix's new series, executive produced by horror master Eli Roth. The mysterious town comes complete with a trendy helping of supernatural drama, but, at least in the first episode, not nearly enough to capture audiences searching for the next True Blood.
Hemlock Grove certainly looks like the popular HBO series — like True Blood, Hemlock Grove even opens with a sex scene in a car. But the similarities end there. Whereas True Blood favors schlocky romance that incites viewers to head to the HBO Store to pick up Team Bill or Eric t-shirts, Hemlock Grove delivers detached high school ennui. It's an interesting departure for a supernatural series, but, unfortunately, when our characters are bored, so are the audiences.
At the center of the inaction is Roman Godfrey, the wealthy son of a deceased businessman played by True Blood star Alexander Skarsgard's younger brother, Bill Skarsgard. He's a cliché of a rich kid — a teen who doesn't appreciate his own status. In fact, Roman only gets his thrills from recreational drug use, an unsettling close relationship with his cousin, and cutting himself during sex — certainly, a nod towards vampirism, even though we have yet to determine his supernatural connection. When, near the beginning of the first episode, Roman smiles at a young cheerleader who quickly turns up dead, we're left to believe he's most likely responsible.
Unless, of course, Gypsy and presumed werewolf Peter (Terra Nova's Landon Liboiron) is the culprit. New to the town of Hemlock Grove, Peter and his mother (Lili Taylor) are shacked up in decrepit trailer, with Peter only befriending an odd neighbor (Freya Tingley) who seems to have watched enough Twilight to immediately associate the town's newest hottie with a werewolf.
But far more intriguing is Roman's mother, Olivia, played by X-Men star Famke Janssen. Netflix's answer to Revenge's Victoria Grayson, Olivia is an ice queen with a spoiled son, deformed daughter, and a secret that has yet to be revealed by the first episode's end. If there's anything reeling in audiences for 13 episodes, it's discovering what that secret is — even if it's how Olivia picks out her impeccable wardrobe.
Perhaps the main issue with Hemlock Grove is the executive producer himself — with the Roth name behind the series, viewers expect the same blood and gore that made Hostel a hit franchise. But, with the exception of one stomach-churning scene involving a fingernail, the blood is no worse than what you'd see on Law & Order: SVU, and not even close to being as bad as the tamest of Walking Dead episodes. On top of the release of a trailer that promised bones, maggots, and more, horror fans are likely to be disappointed to see only one dead body found in Hemlock Grove.
Still, there were a handful of gory moments in Hemlock Grove. See them below — complete with a NSFVWE warning (Not Safe For Viewing While Eating). And if these are enough to keep horror fans captivated, well, we hear there are maggots in the next dozen episodes!
Poor cheerleader Brooke Bluebell went into the night to get nailed... and ended up losing a nail.
Roman's little sister, Shelley (Nicole Boivin), is so very Dr. Kimberly Shaw.
More than a half hour in, Roth finally unveils some entrails.
And more entrails! Ready for lunch?

Now that The CW has canceled 90210 after five seasons, a question hangs over the heads of the actors who comprise the drama's hot, young ensemble: What next?
With their show's series finale airing Monday, May 13, the talented 90210 cast members have plenty of options ahead of them — especially since the decision to axe the show came in the thick of pilot season. The biggest (and best) idea at this point would be to capitalize on their CW fame and hop onto another show on the same network, either joining a recurring series or a new pilot. The CW loves to keep its actors in the family and recycle them across its different series (for which we are eternally grateful: If not for Cult, how else would we see the amazing Matt Davis every week after Alaric left us with tear-streaked faces following his Vampire Diaries death?). With that in mind, we've brainstormed some dream roles for each of the displaced 90210 kids. Here's what we came up with:
RELATED: '90210' Canceled After 5 Seasons
AnnaLynne McCord has both the looks and attitude perfect to play a young, successful Manhattan woman in the '80s on The Carrie Diaries. Perhaps Carrie Bradshaw will need another mentor now that her first one is her boss at Interview magazine. Shenae Grimes has the sweet country girl act down pat (Annie was a nice girl from Kansas transplanted into Beverly Hills at the start of 90210), so maybe she can head to Bluebell, Alabama and befriend Hart of Dixie's Zoey Hart — the doctor's going to need a pal after her recent heartbreak thanks to Wade's infidelity. Matt Lanter's got the build and bravado to go up against Arrow's Oliver Queen in an action-packed fight, one that we are more than glad to witness. Especially if it's shirtless. But would he be a friend or foe to our favorite archer?
Jessica Stroup bears a certain family resemblance to Dillon Casey's Sean Pierce on Nikita, so she'd be perfect as one of the sisters he had to leave behind after he faked his death last week. Jessica Lowndes has the perfect dark looks to portray a vampire (either good or evil) on The Vampire Diaries — or the potential spin off series, The Originals. Michael Steger would be great in Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec's pilot The Tomorrow People, about young people who represent the next stage in human evolution. Tristan Wilds could check out Sera Gamble's pilot Company Town, a drama revolving around a scandal at a Naval base in Virginia.
RELATED: Fall Out Boy Heads to '90210'
There are also other networks, though that's sometimes easy to forget between all the shirtlessness — why would you click anywhere else? Trevor Donovan has already signed on to guest star for three episodes on ABC Family's Melissa and Joey (in fact, his stint was announced mere hours after 90210's cancellation... now that's speedy, even by Hollywood's standards). Joining a show on a different network would give the actors a chance to build their fan base outside of The CW's target demo.
Of course, there's always the option to leave acting behind and fade away into obscurity... but something tells us these beautiful people will choose to stay on our TV screens one way or another. And that's right where we want them! What do you think the 90210 alums should do next?

An eight-part dramatic series about Margaret Kelly, an orphan from Dublin, who went on to be a star of the Folies Bergere and the toast of Paris. The story, based on fact, takes place in the decadent 1930's of Paris and Berlin. Margaret travels through Europe in various dancing troupes, but it is the group she forms herself, "Bluebell Girls," that finally gets her to the top of the heap. But with the outbreak of World War II, Margaret, now known as "Bluebell," has her life turned upside down when her Jewish husband is sent to a concentration camp.
