Despite the royal reverence that Princess Diana has been elevated to in the years following her tragic death, private letters to her nanny reveal a woman still plagued with common problems.
The letters, which are set to hit the auction block at the end of the month, convey family concern, insecurity and even pregnancy discomfort, further proving Diana to truly be the People’s Princess.
She was born into an aristocratic family and engaged to Prince Charles when she was 19 in 1981. They married that summer and had two sons together – Princes William and Harry.
The couple divorced in 1996 and in 1997 Diana died tragically alongside then boyfriend Dodi Fayed when their limousine crashed in a Paris tunnel, hassled by pursuing paparazzi.
She left behind a turbulent legacy and became one of the first women to enter celebrity as we know it now. She conducted a great deal of charity work with poise and elegance.
But the letters give us an insight into the person behind the princess.
In the letters written to her nanny, Mary Clarke, she worries about trying to marry off elder sister Sarah and how even Prince Charles was a candidate who fatefully declined. While pregnant with Prince William she laments being so sick that she longs “for the day when I can eventually sit on the loo as to looking over it!” She also confesses her insecurity, fearing that she looks like an “elephant” when she dances.
The letters are a bittersweet reminder of England’s Rose, but we sort of wish they’d just let her rest in peace!

Credit crunch victim or is someone living beyond their means?
Famed photographer Annie Liebovitz is $715,000 in debt, according to recently filed court documents.
It’s crazy that Annie’s in debt. She reportedly gets about $2 million from Vanity Fair magazine every year.
The photog allegedly owes money for unpaid taxes, an aborted book project, and outstanding equipment rental fees.
AND, she’s supposedly at least a year overdue in paying for renovations to her Greenwich Village townhouse.
Wonder if she’s asked Vanity Fair to give her a bonus for the much-buzzed about pic she snapped of Miley Cyrus?
Looks like she needs it!

Sharri Henry (far left) claims NFL star Dennis Northcutt (right) had his cousin beat her up after an NFL party they both attended back in May — allegedly because Henry wouldn’t get an abortion (Northcutt is the probable baby daddy).
Now check out the pic on the left of Henry just moments before she was allegedly brutalized. The pic on the right was taken at the same party, also just before the attack. It shows Northcutt with his extremely hot new GF at the time. Some people who were at the party tell us when Henry saw her ex with the new chick, she went after him with all the ferocity of a scorned woman.
Henry is now seven months pregnant. She’s suing Northcutt over the attack.

Suge Knight has been busted again, this time for allegedly terrorizing and attacking his girlfriend.
The former rap impresario was busted by Las Vegas cops for assault with a deadly weapon, possession of controlled substances and domestic violence.
Law enforcement tells us Suge allegedly attacked his girlfriend of three years early this morning. She claims he punched her in the back of the head while they were driving. She claims she tried getting out of the car, grabbed the steering wheel to cause an accident so someone would notice her peril.
The car struck the curb and stopped. She fled from the car and allegedly Suge chased her, caught her and that’s when the cops came.
Cops say they saw Suge kick the woman in the head and was wielding a knife in his hand.

Casey Aldridge is hotter than fish grease.
Our sources connected with Casey and Co. say he’s ballistic at reports that he had an affair while Jamie Lynn was six months pregnant.
As for the picture of Casey with Kelli Dawson (the Sienna Miller of the South), he claims it was taken before he even hooked up with J.L.
Casey has called the Spears clan to vent and they believe his story.
And Casey has a point … where he lives, there are just a bunch of one horse towns, so everybody knows everyone else’s business.
Casey says it’s all about Southern Sienna trying to make a buck.

This is so messed up. Did you guys watch the opening ceremony for the Olympics in China? Well, the adorable little Chinese girl who sang “Ode to the Motherland” as part of the elaborate performance was actually the more “photogenic” choice of performer.
Basically, a director of the opening ceremony explained to the media that having a prettier girl lip synch to the voice of what was believed to be a less cute girl who could actually sing was “for the national interest.”
Wow. So, nine-year-old Lin Miaoke is getting credit for singing when it was really 7-year-old Yang Peiyi. I can’t understand how she wasn’t cute enough. Does she have horns, or something? Not that I have anything against people with horns, but yeah, that would be distracting. Or guns for hands–that’s both distracting and dangerous.

Nikki Blonsky’s dad has been bailed out of a Turks and Caicos jail, finally — but he’s may still have to stay on the islands for another week for his trial. Poor sucker.
Carl Blonsky paid $3K yesterday and was allowed to leave the jail. But his travel documents are still with the local government, and he’ll have to cool his heels on the island until August 19, when his trial on assault charges will begin. His various health problems got him a reprieve, we’re told, after his lawyer made another appeal to the local courts.
We’re told by local sources the jail where Blonsky was held was “luxurious,” as you might expect, and that Carl actually appeared to gain weight in the slammer.
He may return to New York before returning on the 19th.

John Edwards may have dodged a bullet. That’s what she said!
Edwards’ love on the side, Rielle Hunter, is not going to ask for a paternity test to prove whether or not her 5-month-old daughter is John’s
Both Rielle and Edwards claim that due to timing, the baby couldn’t be his. According to the NY Post, there’s no father listed on birth certificate and Rielle wants to “maintain her privacy and her daughter’s privacy.”

Cheater/Liar and former presidential candidate John Edwards has one thing going well for him.
His wife, Elizabeth Edwards, has vowed to stand by him!
Mrs. Edwards, who is battling incurable cancer, has released the following statement, after her husband admitted that he lied to the rest of us about his affair with that videographer whore:
Our family has been through a lot. Some caused by nature, some caused by human weakness, and some most recently caused by the desire for sensationalism and profit without any regard for the human consequences. None of these has been easy. But we have stood with one another through them all. Although John believes he should stand alone and take the consequences of his action now, when the door closes behind him, he has his family waiting for him.
John made a terrible mistake in 2006. The fact that it is a mistake that many others have made before him did not make it any easier for me to hear when he told me what he had done. But he did tell me. And we began a long and painful process in 2006, a process oddly made somewhat easier with my diagnosis in March of 2007. This was our private matter, and I frankly wanted it to be private because as painful as it was I did not want to have to play it out on a public stage as well. Because of a recent string of hurtful and absurd lies in a tabloid publication, because of a picture falsely suggesting that John was spending time with a child it wrongly alleged he had fathered outside our marriage, our private matter could no longer be wholly private. The pain of the long journey since 2006 was about to be renewed.
John has spoken in a long on-camera interview. Admitting one’s mistakes is a hard thing for anyone to do. I am proud of the courage John showed by his honesty in the face of shame. The toll on our family of news helicopters over our house and reporters in our driveway is yet unknown. But now the truth is out, and the repair work that began in 2006 will continue. I ask that the public, who expressed concern about the harm John’s conduct has done to us, think also about the real harm that the present voyeurism does and give me and my family the privacy we need at this time.
If things were ‘over’ back in 2006 like Edwards said they were, why the hell was he visiting with his old mistress, Rielle Hunter, now in 2008?
Johnny boy has also said that he’s willing to take a paternity test to prove he’s not the bastard baby’s daddy.
Hunter’s family is challenging the former Democratic candidate to follow through with the test.
The mistress’ sister said, “Somebody must stand up and defend my sister. I wish that those involved would refrain from bad-mouthing my sister.”
Sis also debunked claims that Rielle helped set up the National Enquirer sting at the Beverly Hills Hilton.
We have a feeling that more crazy shiz is about to go down!
And YOU KNOW John hasn’t been completely forthcoming in his interviews!

Prosecutors did not paint a pretty picture of Ingrid Rivera’s last moments before she was left for dead on the roof of a Manhattan club during Lil’ Kim’s bday party — her throat was slit and her head was bashed with a pipe.
At the arraignment for Sayed Rahman, the DA said that Rivera died from “blunt impact trauma” to the head and that “incised wounds to the neck” cut her carotid artery. He’s been charged with second degree murder, and will be in custody until his next court hearing August 13.
We’re told five members of Rahman’s family were there in court, crying profusely.

John Edwards just issued the following statement:
“In 2006, I made a serious error in judgment and conducted myself in a way that was disloyal to my family and to my core beliefs. I recognized my mistake and I told my wife that I had a liaison with another woman, and I asked for her forgiveness. Although I was honest in every painful detail with my family, I did not tell the public. When a supermarket tabloid told a version of the story, I used the fact that the story contained many falsities to deny it. But being 99% honest is no longer enough.”
And he goes on …
“I was and am ashamed of my conduct and choices, and I had hoped that it would never become public. With my family, I took responsibility for my actions in 2006 and today I take full responsibility publicly. But that misconduct took place for a short period in 2006. It ended then. I am and have been willing to take any test necessary to establish the fact that I am not the father of any baby, and I am truly hopeful that a test will be done so this fact can be definitively established. I only know that the apparent father has said publicly that he is the father of the baby. I also have not been engaged in any activity of any description that requested, agreed to or supported payments of any kind to the woman or to the apparent father of the baby.
It is inadequate to say to the people who believed in me that I am sorry, as it is inadequate to say to the people who love me that I am sorry. In the course of several campaigns, I started to believe that I was special and became increasingly egocentric and narcissistic. If you want to beat me up – feel free. You cannot beat me up more than I have already beaten up myself. I have been stripped bare and will now work with everything I have to help my family and others who need my help.”
I have given a complete interview on this matter and having done so, will have nothing more to say.”

Trouble always seems to follow Girls Gone Wild!
