Pippa scores a book deal

Royal sister-in-law Pippa Middleton has secured a nearly $600,000 advance to write a party planning book, according to the Mail on Sunday. An auction for the socialite’s project had reportedly been going on for weeks, with publisher Michael Joseph, an imprint of Penguin, coming out on top. “It will be about entertaining and how to throw the perfect party,” a source says. “It’s not just about being the perfect hostess — it will also include recipes and information about how to host different types of events.” The book, which Middleton is reportedly writing without the help of a ghostwriter, is due out in time for the 2012 holiday season.

Angelina Jolie, funeral director?

Angelina Jolie says the woman all the tabloids write about isn’t her. “I don’t see those things. I don’t know who they are but I assume they’re not me. They’re not who I am. They’re not what I spend my day caring about. I find them quite shallow and often quite wrong,” she says tells “60 Minutes.” Jolie also reveals that aside from acting, she was interested at one point in becoming a funeral director. “It sounds like this very strange, eccentric, dark thing to do,” she says. “That was going to be my path.”

Willis joins society

Tallulah Willis, the youngest daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, is officially part of high society. The 17-year-old was introduced at Le Bal des Debutantes at the Hotel Crillon in Paris over the weekend, according to Us Weekly. Tallulah was joined by her older sisters, Rumer and Scout, and her father, while Moore was noticeably absent.
