Charlotte Church Gets Some Fresh Air

So happy she's all right!!

The singer Charlotte Church recently revealed that if it hadn't been for the urge to install CO detectors by her grandfather after she was having a string of painful headaches, that she was actually at a huge risk in her home.

She says:

"[We're] lucky to be alive."

We are so so glad you are!

The leak seems to have come from a faulty boiler, and threatened to harm both her and her two children!!

A source says:

"Charlotte was terrified when she found out what had been happening. Charlotte is probably lucky that the house is so big and airy."

Absolutely! We can't imagine how it felt to realize what was going on!

Hope everything is fixed, bb! Stay safe!

What do U think?? Isn't that scary??

Charlotte Church: The X Factor Is "Killing Music"

Do we detect a hint of jealousy there, girl? Just because there is a new generation of performers being reared on reality television that threaten the longevity of your career, doesn't mean you need to get all bitter about it!

Charlotte Church recently took aim at Simon Cowell's talent search show The X Factor in Britain's Esquire magazine, claiming that the show is "killing music" for audiences. She added:

"That show doesn't have an interest in true craftsmanship or skill - it's all about your a**, and hopefully you can keep half a tune. It's dreadful news for everyone else because there's no room on radio or TV for anything else."

Aw, c'mon! That's not completely true! You're just getting all upset because no one asked you to be a judge.

No, we're not kidding. As her interview with the mag continues, Charlotte adamantly insists that would have made a "better judge" than anyone on the panel, Simon and Cheryl Cole included. She suggests the only reason she hasn't been asked to be a judge on the show is because Simon "wouldn't be able to control me, so he'd never have me on."

Um, yeah. That's the reason.

Hate to be the one to tell you this, hun, but the show isn't going anywhere and while we know you're not the only one who feels this way, you're not in the majority. The rest of us are totally down with Simon's hit factory, so maybe it's best if you just step aside and let the magic unfold.

That was quick!

It's only been a few months since she called off her last engagement, but Charlotte Church has reportedly found herself a new lover. According to Charlotte, she's been mixing business with pleasure as she is dating Jonathan Powell, a songwriter working with her on her upcoming album.

Charlotte seems pretty smitten with the guy, calling him"handsome" and "really cool," but think she has forget about her kids in the midst of a new romance. Charlotte confessed to sources that her two little ones, Ruby and Dexter, are still #1 in her life. She explains:

"I would drop a man like a hot chip if ever my children said they didn't like him. It's all about my children and that's the way things will always remain."

At least she has priorities in order!

So sad! Could she not get herself on next season of Dancing With the Stars?

Former Destiny's Child singer Michelle Williams will be competing on the UK reality competition Strictly Come Dancing!

A source reveals:

"Michelle is a great booking for us - as she's an amazing dancer and extremely glamorous. We said that we were aiming big this year - and we hope fans of the show will realize that with a booking like her."

Ha! Oh, DEFINITELY!

With mega-stars like her, Lethal Weapon 2's Patsy Kensit and Charlotte Church's ex Gavin Henson, you guys surely accomplished your goal of aiming big…and then landing back on has-been!

Have fun, bb!

Charlotte Church, Back To Music!

It's a gamble, but we think she'll do well!

Charlotte Church revealed that she'll be releasing a new album Back To Scratch on November 1 and it's an entirely different sound from her last album 2005's Tissues and Issues.

She says:

"This new album has been quite a long time in the making. The decision to come back to work after I had babies was a bit scary, but music and singing is what I do and I don't think I'll ever lose my passion for it.

"I've been experimenting and trying to create a new and different sound. But also one which goes with my voice. I'm a little bit nervous because it is quite different. But it's not too far away from what I used to do -my classical voice is still there."

Inneresting!

Are U looking forward to new music from Charl?

Oh no!

Just six weeks after they announced their engagement, a spokesman has confirmed that Charlotte Church and fiance Gavin Henson have called it quits after five years together.

The couple has two children together and are said to be "distraught" about the split.

They have already made arrangements, leaving Charlotte with their home in Wales, worth $1.2 million pounds, while Gavin plans to find a home nearby so he can visit their children.

The source says, "it is an incredibly sad state of affairs. Both Gavin and Charlotte are deeply distraught. But after a lot of soul-searching, they realized this is the best course of action for them and the children. It was a mutual decision."

It's good to know that at least some celebrity couples can keep it civil for the kids!
