EMILY PRESCOTT: Naomi Campbell goes silent on absence from Vivienne Westwood memorial

“I thought I would see her there,” he says. I don’t know why she couldn’t come.
Sources tell me that Naomi, 52, who once fell on a catwalk in a pair of nine-inch Westwood heels, missed the performance at Southwark Cathedral due to “personal reasons”.

Oh babies… the Hemsley sisters are cooking!
They have written books together and have hosted a television series. Now Melissa and Jasmine Hemsley have taken their close relationship a step further. They are pregnant at the same time!
Melissa, 37, is six months pregnant and the news follows the announcement by her older sister Jasmine, 43, that she is expecting her second child.
The couple is famous for their “clean eating” cookbooks, but Melissa tells me she’s been craving something a little more indulgent lately: cheese.
And there won’t be any books or TV work for a while, as Melissa is happy to kick back until the baby comes, telling me at the Neon Future Dreams event, ‘I just want to sit on the couch and watch Strictly and not have to come. Go ahead with any excuse to go out!

Toffs’ Bible Tatler has published a list of modern abbreviations for you to mix up among the British elite, for whom a PJ is really a private jet.
Similarly, UN is not the United Nations but the ultimate modern insult, an ‘ugly nepobaby’ (the child of a star who cashes in on his fame) and TMI does not mean ‘too much information’, but something much worse: ‘too many influencers’.
TME has changed from ‘too many Etonians’ to ‘too much exposure’ and BITC is no longer ‘boring in the country’ but the cryptocurrency Bitcoin.
And FILTH is not ‘failed in London, try Hong Kong’, but ‘no flat in London, try to come home’.
