Spoiler Alert: Results from the Olympic Games are available live online, several hours ahead of the telecasts. If you’d rather find out how the athletes fare on TV, stop reading here!

It wasn’t your everyday family outing.

On Monday as the Queen’s granddaughter Zara Phillips competed in the difficult cross-country portion of Olympic equestrian event, her relatives Prince William, Kate, Prince Harry, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, and Camilla all applauded enthusiastically from the stands, as about 50,000 other spectators – including Phillips’s mother, Princess Anne – viewed from along the 3.5-mile, 28-obstacle course.

Five minutes after setting off on her horse High Kingdom, Phillips, wearing No. 40, negotiated the Tower of London fence, eliciting tremendous applause – including from her cousins. Sitting between William and Camilla, Kate, who wore a pale blue Team GB badge on the right lapel of her navy blue jacket, also beamed a huge smile.

And there were more smiles to come.

“The crowd was unbelievable!” Phillips, who clenched her fist aloft in a victory gesture, said after crossing the finish line. “I hope I didn’t take any heads off on the way cutting corners.”

Finishing well under pace time, Phillips, 31, has now well positioned her team at the near-halfway point in the 74-rider field. Her final time was nine minutes, 55.11 seconds, safely under the 10-minute, 3-second time limit, and all the more impressive because High Kingdom lost a shoe en route.

“He did amazing,” said Phillips, who had made her Olympic debut Sunday. “He really grew up and stepped up to the plate.”

Her only objection: The crowd’s cheers “were so loud you couldn’t hear the stopwatch beeping.”

As for the other royals, they seemed to have no complaints at all, and left around 10 minutes after Phillips finished – with Kate kissing Eugenie and Beatrice as they departed.

Also sweetening the event: Monday marks the first anniversary of Phillips’s marriage to Mike Tindall, captain of England’s rugby team.

Natalie Portman & Benjamin Millepied’s Traveling Tot

Natalie and Ben get mobbed

Israel born actress Natalie Portman was spotted traveling with Benjamin Millepied and their 1-year-old son Aleph as the trio arrived at the Los Angeles International Airport on Sunday (July 29).

It seems the 31-year-old Black Swan actress was traveling with a fourth – and rather hairy – family member as well – their precious pooch Whiz!

Natalie has recently threatened to sue Bollywood actor-producer Saif Ali Khan after he announced that they would collaborate on a Hindi film but according to The Times of India, he later clarified that he had been joking and had started the rumor in response to constant media reports on his personal life.

“It was a joke, I am sorry,” the actor explains. “It’s just that I am very annoyed with speculations on all the aspects of my life.”

“If this goes on, I might just start making up stories like these to entertain myself,” he adds. “Hope people will understand that.”

Natalie’s management team issued the legal notice after Khan went on record saying that the two would feature in a romantic comedy together.

Kingston and Zuma Rossdale have fun on the rides in Central Park, NYC

Gwen Stefani’s boys Kingston, 6, and Zuma, 3, were taken for some family fun at Central Park in New York City on Friday (July 27). Zuma walked around in his Spiderman costume but later took it off as it was a hot day. Early in the morning Gwen performed with the rest of the No Doubt members on Good Morning America.

The kids did a lot! They rode in a carriage, ate ice cream and went on all the amusement park rides that could accommodate them.

No Doubt  are currently promoting their upcoming new album Push and Shove, set to be released in September.

Matt Bomer & His Big Apple Boys

Posted: July 28, 2012 by Jenny Schafer


White Collar star Matt Bomer was spotted catching a cab with his adorable 4-year-old twin sons Henry and Walker in New York City on Friday (July 27). Matt’s partner Simon Halls and their 7-year-old son Kit were not spotted with the trio.

“We like to do outdoor, active things,” Matt said of family time together. “Swim in the pool, barbecue, jump on the trampoline, and just have fun as a family.”

Matt, 34, recently made headlines when a fake Entertainment Weekly cover claimed he will play Christian Grey in the upcoming flick, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Fifty Shades producers Mike De Luca and Dana Brunetti have said “no one has been cast in any role” because they want to tie down “a writer and director first.”
