Pippa Middleton Gets a New Job!

PIPPA Middleton has a new gig!
The sexy sister of Kate Middleton has just taken on a new “green” job working for her ex-boyfriend George Percy, who runs a geothermal energy firm.
She is juggling the role with her two-days-a-week commitment to party planning firm Table Talk and editing an online magazine for her parents’ firm Party Pieces.
“Pip and George are really close friends so when he needed someone to help out with office stuff, she was the obvious person to ask. She’s enjoying getting stuck in to something new,” a source said.
George set up the business last year with mining magnate Algy Cluff, who owns gold mines in war-torn Sierra Leone, to find ways of turning hot water stored underground into heat and electricity.
Along with experts from Newcastle University, they are drilling boreholes in Co Durham, and Pippa is expected to help with lobbying for a new licensing system from the government so they can go into production. The job is a return to the Middleton family’s roots, as Pippa and sister Kate’s great-great-grandparents were Durham coal- miners.

Amy Poelher Says Motherhood Forces Her to go to Bed Early

AMY Poehler says becoming a mom has forced her to stop “being a vampire”.
The Hollywood funnywoman — who raises sons Archie William Emerson, 2½, and Abel James, 9 months with husband Will Arnett — has to go to bed earlier now that she has a family.
“I’d sleep until noon or one and I thought 10:30 a.m. was early. Now I’m sound asleep by 11:30 every night and the kids wake us up around seven — on a good day,” she said.
Amy recently revealed she wants Bill Murray to star on her TV show Parks and Recreation.
The program — which airs on NBC — centers around the Parks and Recreation department in the fictional town of Pawnee, Indiana.
And Amy says she’s love to work with the Hollywood star.
“I want Bill Murray to play the mayor,” Amy told the New York Post.
“That’s my dream. And you know what, if he’s reading this, we’ll only make him work like two hours. And he can s

According to her Twitter, Lindsay Lohan is in Miami “working.” Said the actress this weekend, in her best Yoda impression: “Been working in miami, long day, tired girl i am.” These days, work for Lindsay seems to be either a vanity photo-shoot of some sort, releasing statements about her dad or promoting that Gotti movie that inexplicably just added Al Pacino to the cast. But sure, that sounds exhausting. (ROFLz) Obviously Linds needed to balance out all that employment with some poolside R&R in Miami, where she lounged, grimaced and ate a salad with her sister Ali in tow. Sure enough she was discovered by the paps, much to her disappointment. Again, on her Twitter: “Cant i just be with my sister @ a pool and have our salad!!!!! grrrrr”
Er, doesn’t she know by now that the answer to her question is “no?”

Lars Von Trier may put his actresses through hell, but it certainly seems to pay off in the awards department. Kirsten Dunst managed to score Best Actress at Cannes‘ closing ceremony this weekend, despite Melancholia director Von Trier’s instantly infamous rant about “understanding” Hitler at a press conference last week. “This is an honor that’s once in a lifetime. Thank you to the Cannes Film Festival for allowing the film to still be in competition,” said the actress, who also thanked Von Trier, now a “persona non grata” at Cannes for “giving me the opportunity to be so brave in this film.”
With Dunst’s career taking a tumble following the end of the Spider-Man trilogy and a stint in rehab, this prestigious award could be the beginning of a major comeback for her. Could she carry the buzz to the Academy Awards when Melancholia comes out stateside in November? It probably depends whether Von Trier can keep his mouth shut—though it’s possible Dunst’s performance at the press conference only helped her get the nod.
