It's only a couple of weeks until the new season of Beverly Hills Pawn arrives on Reelz, and we can't wait to see what the rich and famous are buying and selling to Yossi this time around. But that got us thinking, what would the fictional richest people in the world buy? We took a look at Forbes' Fictional 15, picked our favorite fake rich people and tried to figure out what they'd buy if they were shopping at the Dina Collection.
If Tony Stark were to stop by the Dina Collection, we think he would have two words on his mind: Patek Philippe. This gorgeous wrist watch seems likely to catch his eye, with it's clean lines and elegant-yet-masculine looks. We also guess that while there, Yossi would remind him that it would also be a good idea to get a little something for his special lady friend. »

The pair opted to have familiar, personal relationships with Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo. You can't insist staff are 'family', then cry fraud when they behave as if they are
My goodness. It isn't often that common sense scores a victory. But in delivering a verdict of not guilty, the jury in the trial of sisters Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo has done just what juries are supposed to do. The verdict is sensational, but not, perhaps, surprising. The moral of the tale is this: "Don't give people credit cards, fail ever to check the statements before paying up, then become outraged when it turns out that the credit cards have been used."
The fact that this is a lesson that few people other than Charles Saatchi are likely ever to need to learn is, of course, the essence of his problem in court. Why would a jury have sympathy for, or feel indignation on behalf of, »

What is your earliest memory?
Lying in a crib, my parents are there, it's night, there's a lot of animals, I smell hay. Three old guys are leaning over the crib and they have presents for me and I smell myrrh, maybe? Frankincense? Then it gets hazy.

The royal family will share their very first Christmas with baby George at the Queen’s estate, and it will be the perfect blend of British tradition and Will and Kate’s own touches! In fact, it will be just like a modern-day ‘Downton Abbey!’
We know that Prince William and Kate Middleton are fans of the series drama Downton Abbey, but when the holidays come around, they actually live it! The royal family’s first Christmas with 5-month-old Prince George is going to be just like a modern version of the show, taking place at Queen Elizabeth II‘s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk.
The royal family’s Christmas celebrations start off after church services with a formal luncheon with the Queen — but George’s messy eating and loud crying won’t disrupt the meal.

The television landscape is better than its ever been and narrowing down all the amazing individual episodes of 2013 to a handful of favorites a tough job -- but Zap2it is doing it. Check out other staff members' picks here, here and here.
'Downton Abbey' - Season 3, episode 5
This PBS period drama had a lot of strong offerings in Season 3 -- a nice bounce-back from an uneven Season 2 -- but the death of Lady Sybil (Jessica Brown Findlay) was perhaps the highest-caliber television this show has ever done. There was much arguing over Sybil needing to go to the hospital and in the end, Dr. Clarkson was right. She has eclampsia and died »
Source: Getty As Prince George prepares for his first Christmas, we thought we would take a look at how the royal family traditionally celebrates the holidays. Unfortunately for Kate Middleton, Prince William, and Prince Harry, Christmas with Queen Elizabeth II doesn't mean they'll be spending the holidays in a relaxed family atmosphere. In fact, Christmas at the queen's official Winter retreat, Sandringham, is a different beast altogether. If your only knowledge of British aristocrats comes from Downton Abbey, we've put together a handy guide to how the most famous family in the world celebrates the holidays. The Protocol Source: The Sandringham Estate While most of us think of Christmas as being a quiet, casual time at home, the holidays are hardly a low-key affair for the royals. Attendees to the queen's Christmas celebrations are required to adhere to court protocol, including bowing or curtseying to their royal superiors and paying »

Warner Bros. launched the first Us trailer at the start of last month, and a couple of weeks later, the BBFC’s rating of the UK variant suggested the title on our shores would be altered to A New York Winter’s Tale. Without any further confirmation, I sat on the news until it was official, and now it’s exactly that.
The studio’s UK arm has released its own version of the trailer, confirming the title change for its release here in February.
Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, “A New York Winter’s Tale” is a story of miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. The »

A fourth season of Sherlock is as inevitable as the iconic detective’s return from the dead.
On the eve of the PBS Masterpiece smash’s third season premiere (January 19, 9:59 pm), series cocreator Steven Moffat assures TVLine that the show will go on. And on. And (possibly) on some more.

“I don’t suppose there’s an official commission for it yet, but of course it will happen,” he says of Season 4. “It’s inordinately successful. Assuming everyone was willing to turn up for it, which everyone apparently is, then we’ll carry on making them. »

Talk about terms of endearment! Before they became husband and wife, Prince William was recorded calling Kate the sweetest pet names we’ve ever heard! Lucky for us, the nicknames were revealed during England’s high court hearing for the ‘News of the World’ hacking trial.
Phone messages Prince William, 31, left for Kate Middleton, 31, while they were dating in 2006 were released Dec. 19 during a court hearing for the News of the World hacking trial, giving us a rare glimpse into the couple’s intimate life.
Three voicemails were read aloud at the court hearing, which is being held at the historic Old Bailey courthouse in London.

In several messages left for Kate, Prince William can be heard calling his then-girlfriend “babykins” and “baby,” according to the UK’s Daily Mail. »

"Sherlock" and "Downton Abbey" are both returning to PBS' "Masterpiece" series in January. Thus, the public television network has released a promo video in which both British imports feature. Much of the footage comes from earlier seasons of each show, but the questions asked speak to the future.
"How will she manage?"
"Downton Abbey" gets the first question in footage that is all about Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) coping with the loss of her husband, Matthew, and raising their son on her own (with many servants, most likely).
While Mary looks nice and serene in the promo, that doesn't seem like a continued state for this woman.
"How did he do it?"
The second question posed is for "Sherlock." At the end of Season 2, Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch) leapt from a rooftop to his supposed death. Except he didn't die. Instead, the great detective will be back and as brilliant »
Parting is such sweet sorrow. This year, as in all years, we had to say good-bye to some of television's most (and least) beloved characters and shows. Some will live forever in our hearts (30 Rock, The Office); some, not so much (we had already forgotten We Are Men was a thing that existed). But no matter what, attention must be paid. We put together this moving, slo-mo tribute to TV's dearly departed. As the saying goes: 'Tis better to have watched and lost than never to have watched at all (though in some cases, never having been watched at all was the cause of death). Warning: As this features many character deaths, there are obviously spoilers galore. Be warned if you are still catching up on Boardwalk Empire, The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Orange Is the New Black, True Blood, Grey's Anatomy, Justified, The Killing, Downton Abbey, Breaking »

From Breaking Bad’s stevia packet to Girls’ Q-tip, here are some of the pivotal objects that sum up scripted television in 2013. Spoiler Alert for a ton of shows if you’re not caught up. You’ve been warned. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, "12 Objects That Defined The Year In Television," in which I look at the 12 objects that roughly define 2013 in scripted television, from a Q-tip on Girls and a Sharpie on Homeland to an automobile on Downton Abbey and that Cytron card on Scandal. 1. This Q-tip. Where It Appeared: Girls What It Was: A seemingly innocuous Q-Tip, used repeatedly by Hannah (Lena Dunham), whose Ocd was quickly spiraling out of control, to clean out her ears. But she inserted it too deeply into her inner ear canal. What It Did: It punctured her eardrum (“I heard hissing,” she later said), leading Hannah to seek medical attention at the hospital. »

Laura Carmichael is thrilled not to be working this Christmas. The 'Downton Abbey' star is looking forward to a relaxing break and plans to spend the festive season being lazy at home. She told the UK's Grazia magazine: ''I am craving Christmas like a child. I am so excited about having some time at home. Last year I was doing a play and only got a day and a half off. I'll be wearing a reindeer onesie for the majority - Jonathan Ross gave it to me a couple of years ago when I appeared on his show.'' The 'Downton' Christmas special sees »
"Sex and the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker stopped by the "Watch What Happens Live" clubhouse on Wednesday (Dec. 18), where she talked about her favorite episodes of "Satc" and also her new TV obsession.
First Sjp plays a rapid-fire game about "Satc," where she says she was "very" happy with the way the show ended and that "for sentimental reasons" the boyfriend of Carrie Bradshaw's she'd like to end up with in real life is Mr. Big.
Parker also names her two favorite "Satc" episodes: The series finale and "Valley of the Twenty-Something Guys," which we have to second because it has as a guest-star "Justified's" Timothy Olyphant. Woo woo.
As for her current TV obsession, Sjp says, "I just started watching 'Downton Abbey' and it's pretty much the greatest thing I've ever seen."
When it comes to a "Sex and the City 3" movie, Sjp says, "I »
Smith, the youngest actor ever to play the Time Lord, bows out in spectacular style in the Christmas Day episode
Smith, the youngest ever actor to play the Time Lord, bows out in spectacular style, confronted by a "greatest hits" of the doctor's enemies in a snow-covered faraway town called Christmas.
But the show, the first full appearance by The Thick of It star Capaldi in the role, which celebrated its 50th birthday last month, is also a sombre affair, reflecting on mortality and the passing of time.
Showrunner Steven Moffat asked the audience at London's British Film Institute, on London's South Bank, not to reveal too much about the episode, which brings an end to Smith's turn as the doctor after four years. »

Ben Stiller is returning as museum security guard Larry Daley, with Robin Williams coming back as Teddy Roosevelt. We reported last month that Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens is playing the living mannequin Sir Lancelot of the Roundtable. It isn't known yet if other franchise mainstays such as Amy Adams, Owen Wilson or Hank Azaria are coming back for the sequel.
Shawn Levy is directing from a screenplay by Thomas Lennon, Robert Ben Garant, David Guion and Michael Handelman. We reported in September that production is scheduled to begin this coming February in Vancouver and London. The story will be set in London, although no plot specifics have been revealed.
It had already been confirmed that Ben Stiller and Robin Williams would be reprising their roles, but it was left up in the air whether Gervais would reprise his role as Dr McPhee, but he will now be joining the rest of the cast (including ex Downton Abbey star Dan Stevens) for the Shawn Levy directed movie being geared up for a Christmas 2014 release.
Night At The Museum, based on the children’s story by Milan Trenc, tells the story of a night watchman at the Museum Of Natural History who discovers that the artefacts come alive at night. The last movie Night At The Museum: Battle Of The Smithsonian also starred Amy Adams, Owen Wilson, Hank Azaria, »
