Celebrity Hotspots: Nicole Scherzinger and Chris Brown Celebrate in Vegas and Preity Zinta Hangs in Mumbai!

Nicole Scherzinger was one of many Hollywood celebrities who chose to celebrate their birthdays in Vegas this weekend. The X-Factor judge and former Pussycat Doll enjoyed her 33rd birthday with a group of girlfriends. They chose the Marquee Dayclub as their party destination and dined at Lavo and Tao.

The Marquee Dayclub is located at the new hotel in Las Vegas called the Cosmopolitan and of course the former Pussycat Doll turned solo artist wouldn’t settle for less! And just look at the cake they brought to her that afternoon! Nicole also dressed in a sweet leopard print for her poolside outing. We hope Nicole enjoyed her birthday.

Chris Brown also celebrated his birthday in Sin City. Turning 22, the star chose Pure, the nightclub, as his place to party at. Chris chose to go without a shirt that night, and we are not complaining!  As he showed off his tatted-up chest and a great smile for the camera, it seemed that he fully enjoyed his Vegas birthday in style. Pure Nightclub is located in the Caesars Palace hotel and is a frequent hotspot for celebs.

Moving over to Mumbai, Bollywood star, Preity Zinta, and speedy champ, Brett Lee, were spotted sharing an intimate dinner in Mumbai Olive, a celebrity hotspot. The couple dined and enjoyed each other’s company for more than two hours, so while they have yet to announce they are a couple, we think they might in the near future. What do you think of this possible couple-to-be?

As a true professional, Minissha is working hard on her curves and has incorproated more carbohydrates in her diet. She is also doing some special exercises to get her body right for Zilla Ghaziabad.

I know it’s not going to be easy, but I am working on my diet and exercising to achieve the same. Also, I am taking certain dietary supplements.”

Preity Zinta turns into a producer

Her first flick will be a romantic comedy under the direction of Prem Soni. When asked why she chose Soni as her director when his last flick ‘Main Aur Mrs Khanna’ bombed at the box office, Preity clarifies, “I’d rather work with someone who’s fallen down hard than someone who’s at the top because he’s driven to go out there and prove a point to the world. Even Imtiaz Ali’s first film, Socha Na Tha, wasn’t a blockbuster but today everyone wants to work with him.”

The actress has set a mediocre budget for the movie and is yet to finalize the cast of the film which will mostly be shot abroad. Preity is thoroughly happy and confident about her move and says, “It’s an instinct for choosing the right movie that’d got me where I am today,” she points out. Of course, after that I took a course at the Harvard Business School, asked a million questions and gave two years to the game. Film is my core competence and it should be easier focusing on it.”

“Suddenly, the sky is bluer, the birds are singing and life is so cool,” Chirps the chirpy actress!!

Kajal Aggarwal falls prey to Ajay Devgan and Rohit Shetty’s pranks

Ajay Devgan and Rohit Shetty are very much excited and confident about their forthcoming ambitious project ‘Singham’. Slated for a 22nd July release, the movie has Southern beauty Kajal Aggarwal making her Bollywood debut with this flick.

However, the actress was quite nervous while working with such senior actor and producer of Bollywood. To put her ease and to tap this opportunity of pulling a prank on a nervous newcomer, Ajay Devgan and Rohit Shetty along with the help of their Assistant Directors on the sets, tricked the actress.

For her introductory shot, Kajal was handed over some dialogues and was asked to rehearse the scene. The scene required her to yell Ajoba and run towards her on screen grand-dad. But Rohit asked her to yell Ajoba Badminton before running. Though Kajal found things fishy, trusting her seniors she did as she was asked and the entire unit burst out laughing.

Not to mention here that the prank broke the ice between the stars and the entire unit went ahead working and gelling along well ahead.

Lib Dems criticised over AM fight

 John Dixon and Lord Carlile Lord Carlile (right) said he was ‘appalled’ what had happened to John Dixon The Liberal Democrats should have fought a legal battle to reinstate a Welsh assembly member, says a senior party figure.

Lord Carlile told BBC Radio Wales it appeared the party did not have the money to fight John Dixon’s case.

He was disqualifed as an AM when it emerged he was a member of a public body to which candidates cannot belong.

The Welsh Lib Dems said he paid a high price but his case had little support in the assembly.

The party leadership has already admitted failing to provide candidates with proper support.

North Wales AM Aled Roberts regained his seat when AMs voted to readmit him last week after his was disqualified for the same reason.

Members voted to reinstate Mr Roberts after an investigation found he was misled by out-of-date guidance for election candidates published in Welsh.

Continue reading the main story
I’m very disappointed that my party and his, the Liberal Democrats, appeared not to have the resources to take up the cudgels to fight John Dixon’s case all the way”

End Quote Lord Carlile of Berriew Lib Dem peer But the same report found Mr Dixon had failed to read the relevant regulations as a candidate and the party withdrew its motion to reinstate him.

Mr Dixon, 46, a Cardiff councillor, was elected for the South Wales Central region, but had to stand down because he was still a member of the Care Council for Wales, which regulates social care workers.

His place in the assembly has been taken by Eluned Parrott.

Lord Carlile QC of Berriew is a former Welsh party leader.

The former Montgomeryshire MP said if Mr Dixon had been put to the vote and refused entry to the assembly, his case would have been the subject of a “successful judicial review”.

Speaking on Sunday Supplement on BBC Radio Wales, he said: “I’m appalled by what has happened to John Dixon. What John Dixon did quote, wrong, unquote, was very far from being heinous.

“I believe that if John Dixon had been put to the vote and refused entry to the assembly, it would have been the subject of a successful judicial review.

“And I’m very disappointed that my party and his, the Liberal Democrats, appeared not to have the resources to take up the cudgels to fight John Dixon’s case all the way.”

Asked if his party was broke, and did not have the money to fight the case, Lord Carlile added: “I’m not sure the party’s broke, but taking up the case would have involved the potential expenditure of a few tens of thousands of pounds.

“In my view, it would have been right for that money to be spent to save the political career of a fine candidate, who would have made a good assembly member.”

He added that if the money had been available to “pursue litigation on his behalf”, he believed Mr Dixon “would be back in the assembly”.

A Welsh Liberal Democrats spokesman said: “The Welsh Liberal Democrats approach from the beginning was to do all we could to ensure that the two men could take up their seats.

“Alex Carlile is absolutely right to say that John Dixon would have been an excellent Assembly Member and that he has paid a very high price for what was far from being the most heinous crime committed by a politician in the last few years.

“However, it was clear there was very little support for his case in the assembly.”

Last Tuesday, a report by assembly standards commissioner Gerard Elias QC said Mr Roberts “did everything that he could have reasonably been expected to do in ensuring that he was not a disqualified person for the purpose of nomination or election”.

In a statement, the Commission said “there were mistakes made” in its guidance for candidates.

Bank returns call centres to UK

Santander Santander says it is moving its call centres back to the UK to improve customer satisfaction Santander has said it is bringing all of its call centres back to the UK from India following complaints.

Chief executive Ana Botin told the BBC customers had said it was “the most important factor in terms of the satisfaction with the bank”.

It is taking on 500 staff for new phone centres and has 25 million customers and 1,300 branches in the UK.

The bank acquired Abbey, Alliance & Leicester and parts of Bradford & Bingley in 2008.

Commenting on the call centre move, Ms Botin said: “This is what our customers have told us is the most important factor in terms of the satisfaction with the bank, and we have listened to them and decided to bring all of our retail call centres back from India.”

BBC personal finance correspondent Simon Gompertz said Spanish bank Santander had one of the worst complaints records in the industry last year.

Our correspondent also said there was a trend for banks and other companies to bring call centres back to the UK, although many are now moving administration work to cheaper countries instead.


On Tuesday, telecommunications company New Call Telecom announced that it was moving one of its call centres from India to Lancashire, in a move that is expected to bring 100 jobs to the area.

New Call Telecom transferred its business to Mumbai three years ago, but increased costs has prompted it to move to Burnley.

The company highlighted a growing trend in India for prices to increase in real estate, salaries and accommodation.

In September 2010, Santander said it was creating 400 call centre jobs in the UK following rapid growth in its business.

Liverpool got 200 of the call centre jobs, with 100 in both Leicester and Glasgow.
