George Lazenby suing ex-wife Pam Shriver

Posted: July 20, 2009

GEORGE LAZENBY, who did a one-shot as James Bond more than 40 years ago in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service," is suing his estranged wife, former tennis pro Pam Shriver, to try to void their pre-nup.

TMZ.com reports that according to George, Pam is so wealthy, he feels bad and his kids don't take him seriously.

Those would be his kids who are 5 and not quite 4, so Tattle's guess is that they don't take much seriously - except maybe SpongeBob Squarepants.

The ex-couple's divorce has been messy for a year, and documents say George, 69, is asking an L.A. judge to throw out the pre-nup and award him $16,133 in spousal support.

He claims Pam, 47, is "30 times a millionaire" while he's only got a paltry million to his name.

And Pam lives in a bigger house.

Last summer in an article in London's Daily Mail, Pam called George an "abusive drunk" and George said Pam regularly mixed alcohol and painkillers and once threw golf clubs at his head.

It's unclear if these real-estate holdings are pre-divorce or post-divorce but according to imdb.com, George is neighbors with Kobe Bryant in L.A. and owns mansions in Hawaii, Australia, and a 600-acre estate/ranch in Southern Caifornia.

So boo-hoo and a pox on all their mansions.

Madonna in Marseilles

Last night Madonna visited some of the eight workers who were injured in an accident that killed two other workers while they were assembling a concert stage for her performance in Marseilles.

The concert, scheduled for last night, was canceled after the accident Thursday at the Velodrome stadium, when the roof of the stage collapsed while it was being built and crashed onto the workers.

Mandela in New York

The anti-apartheid icon wasn't there personally, but a flock of global personalities, including France's first lady, Carla Bruni, toasted Nelson Mandela's 91st birthday with an all-star concert Saturday night at Radio City Music Hall.

Bruni made her American stage debut at the show paired with Eurythmics founder Dave Stewart as her husband, President Nicolas Sarkozy, sat cheering in the audience. She paid homage to Mandela's social activism by covering Bob Dylan's "Blowin' in the Wind," calling it a song by another famous activist.

Other performers in the diverse and eclectic collaborative effort included Gloria Gaynor, Stevie Wonder, Jesse McCartney, Zucchero and African artists such as Suzanna Owiyo, Yvonne Chaka Chaka, Sipho Mabuse, and the Soweto Gospel Choir.

Queen Latifah performed a booming rendition of "There's a Light," Aretha Franklin dueted with Josh Groban for "You Raise Me Up," Alicia Keys and African artist Angelique Kidjo performed the spiritual "Afrika" and Lil' Kim sang with Cyndi Lauper on "Time After Time."

* If housing prices haven't dropped

enough to make you a first-time

homeowner, take note that the price of 50 Cent's Connecticut mansion has dropped again - to only $10.9 million.

It has 19 bedrooms and 37 bathrooms. It boasts a gym, billiards rooms and racquetball courts.

So you could go in with 18 other people, make it like a big frat house and pay only $574,000 each.

Did we mention that it also has a disco with stripper poles?

Admit it, Dudes, those keg parties would rock.

50 Cent bought the shack for $4.1 million, then spent $6 million fixing it up, he said.

But he's been unable to sell it.

Even with the stripper poles.

With an initial asking price of $18.5 million (dropping to $14.5 million last year), the hut sat for nearly two years before being pulled off the market in May.

50 Cent says he's tired of the two-hour commute to New York City and wants to downsize.

He finally realized bathroom No. 37 wasn't really necessary.

* Michael Jackson's ex-wife Debo-

rah Rowe has sued Rebecca White of Florida, who claimed in an "Extra" TV interview that Rowe didn't want custody of Michael's children but was interested in getting money from the Jackson family.

The suit seeks unspecified damages, but targets any money that White may have been paid by "Extra" for the interview.

Rowe's suit also states that she hasn't communicated with White since Michael's death and says White interviewed her in 2008 for an MTV production and has since been "attempting to portray herself as a friend."

The suit rejects White's contention that she's a friend.

Life is so much simpler on Facebook, where it's clear who's a friend.

* The people of

Iowa have spoken in a rich and creamy online vote and Michael Jackson will not have his buttery likeness displayed at the Iowa State Fair this summer.

His support was spread too thin. Only 35 percent of the more than 100,000 votes said yes to Michael.

This year's butter-sculpture display will celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon-landing ("that's one small stick for mankind") but a buttery Michael (might they have used cocoa butter?) will not be moonwalking next to it.

* A spokesman for Universal Pic-

tures says a third "Bridget Jones" movie is planned. Star Renee Zellweger has not been confirmed yet, but . . . they're not going to reboot the franchise with Amy Winehouse.

"Bridget Jones's Diary" and the sequel "Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason" were based on the books by Helen Fielding.

For this one might we suggest, "Bridget Jones: Cougar." *
