A new bibliography for author J.K. Rowling, “J.K. Rowling: A Bibliography 1997-2013,” written by Philip Errington, reportedly divulges tons of secrets and behind-the-scenes info from the “Harry Potter” series!
For example, The Guardian reports that J.K. wrote a letter to her editor while writing “Prisoner of Azkaban”: “Finally! I’ve read this book so much I’m sick of it, I never read either of the others over and over again when editing them, but I really had to this time…If you think it needs more work, I’m willing and able, but I do think this draft represents an improvement on the first; the dementors are much more of a presence this time round, I think.”
Other tidbits revealed include:
- “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” also could have been titled “Harry Potter and the Death Eaters,” “Harry Potter and the Fire Goblet” and “Harry Potter and the Three Champions.”
- The manuscript for “The Order of the Phoenix” was handed over in a London pub.
- J.K.‘s editor called “Chamber of Secrets” long, to which J.K. replied, “I’ve done more to it than you suggested, but I am very happy with it now, which wasn’t the case before. The hard work, the significant rewrites I wanted to do, are over, so if it needs more cuts after this, I’m ready to make them, speedily…”
Gabrielle Union keeps it fun in fringe while stepping out a screening party for her show Being Mary Jane on Friday night (February 27) in London, England.
Earlier in the day, the 42-year-old actress was spotted in a more daytime look while out about doing promo for the show.
“It’s nice. I’m like kale,” Gabrielle recently joked to EW about her career. “I’ve been around, but [now] they’re like, “Kale’s good!” That’s nice (laughs). I need kale’s publicist because kale is everywhere.”
She added, “It’s been nice to sort of be rediscovered, but at the same time, I always kept working. My accountant wasn’t freaking out. I was under the radar just enough to become bright and shiny and new all over again. I’ll take it.”

Kim Kardashian goes for a leather look on the cover of Adweek‘s latest issue.
Here’s what the 34-year-old reality star had to share with the mag:
On if she’ll continue being open to sharing on social media: “You never know. I love sharing my world with people, so I don’t see me just having a freak-out and just stopping. Will I do it forever? I’m not sure….”
On Keeping Up with the Kardashians: “I hope [people] get out of it that we are a normal family. They may not think we’re normal, [but] we are a family like everyone else’s that goes through so many different things and we’re always there to support each other.”
On her selfie book: “[I took] my first selfie in 1984, and that opens up the book. For a decade, I’ve carried a big digital camera, and I think it’s just fascinating to see the process of what types of photos evolve.”
