. But now it's her fashion range that's making news.
Her fourth range for High Street store Peacocks hits the shelves this weekend and it has caused such a stir that

Pearl's not the only celeb to try their hand at designing. Last month Amy Winehouse launched her collection for classic brand Fred Perry and Kate Moss's 14th collection for Topshop has landed in stores.
The London Edition marks the latest new property announcement for a brand which only opened the doors of its first property a few weeks ago in Hawaii.

It will be situated in the former Berners Hotel, a converted residence in London's bustling Fitzrovia media district which has been closed since 2006, and is set to open between 18 and 24 months from now.

The building will now be totally redeveloped by Ian Schrager, Marriott's partner in the Edition venture and the man credited with creating the "boutique hotel" genre.

Marriott president Arne Sorenson said that that property offered a "great location and beautiful facade," describing it as a "perfect canvas for creating a true work of art".

Reviews of the first Edition property opened in September in Honolulu, Hawaii, have been overwhelmingly positive, although the company's statement November 8 confirmed that the Edition Istanbul, originally expected to be open by the end of 2010, will instead open in the first half of 2011.

The new London property will join a host of other openings from names such as W Hotels, Shangri-La and Sol Melia, which are set to transform the London hotel market over the next two years ahead of the start of the 2012 Olympic Games.
The best Christmas wines | Life and style | The Observer: "El Chaparral de Vega Sindoa Old Vine Garnacha, Navarra, Spain 2008 (£6.99, if you buy two bottles, Majestic)
I'm not sure I've ever come across a better garnacha (aka grenache) at this price. Produced from very old bush vines in Navarra, it's full of character, tastes of fresh raspberries and pepper, and has a lovely silky texture."
The Luxury Real Estate Market in Spain: "One thing above all others is very clear in Spain amongst a plethora of other countries, that is that the real estate sector has suffered horrendously in the last couple of years. The market can be segmented though and some areas have responded better than others of course. The better areas were cushioned from the recession and the areas of individual luxury Spanish villas and luxury real estate in Spain have fared a lot better than the areas where there are an oversupply of similar properties aiming at the middle or lower ends of the Spanish property market.
In Spain the luxury real estate market is now looking reasonably healthy. Prices have certainly dropped but they were the first to stabilise as soon as the excess stock was absorbed. Many people who had overstretched themselves got into trouble as interest rates rose to levels they hadn't been before and others in that area were bankers, lawyers and other professionals etc... whose industries disappeared almost overnight and they were unable to pay the large mortgage repayments that came with the territory."
Spain's rich eye high yield deposits | Reuters: "Spain limps out of a deep recession amid concerns it could still face a Greek-style debt crisis, many of its rich are betting on high yield domestic bank deposits to preserve their capital base.
In the last few months, the large Spanish SICAVS -- the investment vehicles tailor-made for the wealthy -- have increased to 16 percent from 6 percent the allocation for these deposits in their portfolios, according to end-June data from stock market regulator CNMV.
Spain's biggest bank Santander (SAN.MC) was first out of the starting gate in the race to capture deposits in January, offering interest rates of up to 4 percent.
This compares with ordinary deposit rates more like 1 to 2 percent, depending on the bank, while Spanish treasury bills are yielding not much more than 2 percent."

Ladies of a certain age might need to reach for the smelling salts. A year after severing his ties with Britain and declaring that he felt more European than British, James Hewitt is coming home.
But, thanks to a remarkable transformation in his fortunes, the copper-haired cad is coming back not with his tail between his legs but as a partner in a successful business.
Princess Diana’s former lover has been based on Spain’s Costa del Sol on and off for the past five years and last year opened a polo-themed bar and restaurant in Marbella.

Smiles again: James Hewitt is to launch a Polo themed restaurant in London
After a slow start it has proved a popular spot and Hewitt, whose previous commercial adventures ended in disaster, has turned out to have a business brain after all.
Buoyed by their success, Hewitt and his partner Ram Nandkishore plan to bring the Polo House to London and are looking for properties in Mayfair and Chelsea.
‘We are also looking at Los Angeles and Dubai. Since I know London so well, it makes sense for me to be doing it there,’ says former cavalry officer Hewitt.
He previously invested in a Docklands golf driving range and a riding school before some tacky adventures in reality television and cashing in on his relationship with Diana by selling his memoirs.
‘I have made mistakes, of course I have,’ Hewitt tells me.
‘I know I said I was quitting Britain, but that was because I felt I was hated there.
‘What I have been struck by is the reaction from our customers, who are predominantly British.
They say to me 'Well, we don’t hate you' and 'Why don’t you open a place like this back home?' ’
Last year, Hewitt likened himself to a gypsy when he melodramatically told me he had been ‘cast out’ by the world and felt he didn’t belong anywhere.
Two years ago, Hewitt sold his Chelsea flat, but is now looking to start again.
A friend of the Life Guards officer — mentioned in dispatches in the first Gulf War — says: ‘He took a huge gamble out in Marbella, but against the odds it’s been a success when people said it was mad to open a restaurant at a time of recession.
‘James realises he is not quite public enemy number one any more and is coming back not as a loser but as a winner.’

Signs of a Cheating Wife You Can't Ignore: "There are certain signs of a cheating wife you can't ignore when you see them in your marriage. It is up to you, at certain points in your marriage, to rein things back under control and really dedicate yourself to making your marriage work.
Keep in mind that cheating isn't always about a physical act. Emotional cheating can be even more devastating to a marriage. These signs will cover both physical and emotional signs of a cheating wife you need to be on the lookout for in your own marriage.
1) Sudden silences. You know better than anyone that your wife isn't prone to long periods of silence. She talks about everything with you. At least, she used to. You haven't fought and there's no reason you can think of for her to be angry with you but she still isn't talking. If your wife suddenly stops talking to you then it's probably a matter of her wanting to avoid saying something that's weighing heavily on her mind"
CHEATING 101: The Do’s and Dont’s of an Affair: "TIP #2:
INVEST IN A “PAY-AS-YOU-GO” PHONE
Do NOT utilize your primary cell-phone, landline, or work-number to communicate with your side-piece! You don’t want your wife or girlfriend to discover a phone bill with numerous calls made to the same unrecognized number over a period of time. Purchase a prepaid wireless device! You can buy these phones at a fairly inexpensive rate without having to register the phone in your name. Purchase the phone with cash! Avoid using money orders, credit, debit, or travelers checks for this transaction. Lastly, keep the phone on vibrate and erase the ENTIRE call-log history, just in case the phone is discovered. Deniability will be in your favor if the entire call-log is erased. Get in the habit of doing this everytime you use the phone to communicate with your side-line ho."
CHEATING 101: The Do’s and Dont’s of an Affair: "TIP #1:
CONTINUE ENGAGING YOUR PRIMARY MATE
The majority of individuals who cheat make the heinous mistake of unconsciously chunking the deuce to their primary mate. Fellas, if you have a girlfriend or wife, continue interacting with her as you did before the sideline-ho stepped into the picture. If you and your woman spent each night talking about your day at the office followed by a few hours of passionate intimacy, then continue following this routine DAMN IT! If you don’t have the stamina; I suggest investing in some ginseng, taking Vitamin C, or even popping a few Viagra if need-be to keep your numero uno chica satisfied! Don’t come home, roll-over, and go to sleep without making love and talking to her for more than two nights in a row! That’s a dead give-a-way that something has gone awry."

'Cheating' Chilean miner rescued | Herald Sun: "CHILEAN miner whose alleged extramarital affair was exposed as he lay trapped half-a-mile underground was rescued today, bringing the tally of freed workers to 21. Yonni Barrios, nicknamed 'the doctor', will need to heal his own personal life in the coming days because his wife found out about his secret mistress while attending a vigil at the collapsed San Jose mine.
After she heard the love-rival shouting his name, his wife announced she would not meet him at the site today. Though Mr Barrios gave both women and his sister clearance to be at the rescue, it was not immediately clear which of the three was there to greet him.
The 50-year-old had played an important role underground, vaccinating all 33 trapped men, including himself, against flu and pneumonia."
10 lies women tell men -  Sex and Dating - MSN Him - MSN UK: "Nothing's wrong, I'm fine
According to the Science Museum study, this is the most popular lie told by women. Like we didn't know. On a bad day I hear it a couple of times before breakfast.
And of course, most men react to its utterance as if confronted by zombies, because what it actually means is: 'I am sooo not fine. But I intend to let you stew for a while before starting a blazing row just before your parents turn up.'

Rex Features
If she says 'it wasn't expensive' chances are the opposite is trueIt wasn't expensive
The literal interpretation of this porky is, of course, 'it was very expensive indeed'. Women use it because they like to shop and, however much they bang on about the joys of Poundstretcher and Primark, they really like to shop in Harvey Nicks.
But as lies go, it's not such a bad one. At least she's bothering to lie. A worse indication of the state of your relationship would be a brazen disregard for the shopping addiction that will eventually cost you your credit rating, your house and your sanity.
I'm on my way
If she rings or texts to tell you that she is 'on her way', the only course of action is to open an unabridged version of War and Peace.
Because there is every chance she is not on her way. She might be trying on an outfit. She might be taking it off again. She might be trying on the outfit she first tried on 20 minutes ago. Whatever it is, she is categorically not 'on her way'.
That was the best sex ever!"

Elin Nordegren has said she had no idea husband Tiger was cheating on her but in a shocking claim, one of the golfer’s former mistresses has suggested the Swedish blonde tried to meet her once to discuss the infidelity.

In a new interview, Joslyn James, who was the eighth woman alleged to be a mistress of Tiger, alleged Elin came to two strip clubs where she was dancing, in a bid to confront her about the affair.“Each time she showed up looking for me I wasn't there,” Joslyn, real name Veronica Siwik-Daniels, told Steppin’ Out editor Chaunce Hayden.

“It was like she was stalking me. “She definitely knew who I was and wanted to meet me and talk things over, but she didn't give up looking for me at just one strip club. “She actually came to two of the clubs where I worked because she was so obsessed with meeting me.” Elin denied knowledge of the affairs in an interview last month, telling People magazine: “I felt stupid as more things were revealed – how could I not have known anything?”

But as RadarOnline.com reported, Elin saw text messages from Rachel Uchitel on Thanksgiving, 2009 and phoned her to confront her. Shortly after the confrontation, Tiger left the couple’s Florida home and crashed his car. Joslyn said she would speak with Elin, if she were placed in the scenario again. “I feel bad we never had that moment together,” she said. “I'm sorry we didn't get the chance because I'm sure we would have had a lot to say to each other.”

Juhu-based actress has lodged a case against her husband and his two brother-in-laws from his first marriage for cheating and threatening her.

The police said that Rajesh Patel, 29, the husband, was arrested from Gujarat on Thursday, while the other two accused are still at large.

According to the police, the 22-year-old complainant, Rucha Ranawat, lodged a complaint in July stating that Rajesh married her by claiming that he was a bachelor. In 2009, the complainant visited Gujarat where she learnt that he was already married.

“Although I disbelieved it initially, the facts were too strong to be ignored,” Rucha reportedly told the police in her statement.
Whether you are the wife or husband, significant other or loved one of someone who engages in compulsive sexual behavior – or if you are the person with the problem yourself – you likely have a lot of conflicting emotions about the situation, and not the least of which is what you should or even coulde do about it. Amid the nagging doubts is the agonizing thought that maybe such behavior, especially if it has gone on for a long time, can’t be stopped. But if it can be stopped, wouldn’t you want to do everything in your power to help the individual (or you) overcome compulsive sexual behavior? Obviously, the answer is yes, you would want to. So the question becomes, can you stop compulsive sexual behavior?



Let’s take a closer look at what’s involved.

What is Compulsive Sexual Behavior?

Getting down to basics, there’s no single universally-accepted definition of compulsive sexual behavior. But there are some general statements that, taken together, form a definition that will likely suffice for our purposes. A person who is obsessed with sexual thoughts, feelings, or behaviors that affect his or her relationships, health, job, or other parts of life, he or she may have compulsive sexual behavior.

You may have heard the terms hypersexuality, sexual addiction, or nymphomania used to describe what is considered compulsive sexual behavior. These are all appropriate terms for sexual behavior that has become obsessive. In fact, it’s the obsessiveness that gives it away. What may begin as normal sexual behavior somehow crosses the line into obsession. It may also involve fantasies or actions and activities that are far outside the bounds of what is considered culturally, legally, and morally sexually acceptable behavior.

Activities that May be Warning Signs of Compulsive Sexual Behavior

Looking at the subject of compulsive sexual behavior, it’s important to clarify what types of feelings, thoughts, or activities may be warning signs that there’s a problem. It may, in fact, be something other than what you think. In reality, compulsive sexual behavior includes a number of different behaviors – taken to extreme. Here are a few examples:

• Multiple sexual partners or multiple extramarital affairs
• Sex with anonymous partners or prostitutes
• Deliberately avoiding emotional attachment in relationships
• Fixation on a partner that is unattainable
• Exhibitionism
• Masochistic or sadistic sex
• Frequent use of pornographic materials
• Use of commercially available and sexually explicit phone and Internet services
drive-by shooting that rattled residents of a north end street last February turns out to have been a dispute between neighbours over rumours of infidelity.

Peter Joseph Lawrence Seale, 39, of Metcalf Street was arrested shortly after the incident on Feb. 7.

"As I understand it, his partner - his wife - who is here today was approached by one of the ladies who lives in that house and that lady told her, her husband was having sex with someone else," said John King, Seales' lawyer.

Whether it was true or not Seale reacted badly, King said.

On Feb. 7 police received a 911 call about shots fired at 72 Belleview Ave. Belleview is a normally quiet street next to Shamrock Park. The residents of the home said they saw Seale fire the shot, said prosecutor Lucie Mathurin.

When interviewed by the police, Seale told them that if his neighbour wanted to take it as a warning shot, that's the way he should take it. Unfortunately people in the neighbourhood were caught in the middle of the animosity between the two men, Mathurin said.

During the investigation in February police seized a .22 calibre rifle believed to have been used to fire the buckshot at the house.
