Heidi Fleiss didn’t have the best Thanksgiving Day, her home according to TMZ caught fire this morning.
The home of Fleiss is located in Pahrump, NV, approximately 60 miles outside of Las Vegas.
Thankfully there were no injuries and Fleiss was seen outside of her home speaking to the fire chief while her birds were carried from the home.
According to a neighbor, Fleiss recently installed something in her fireplace and the fire appears to have started in the same room where the fireplace is located.
No other details have been released at this time.
However, we can’t help but pay attention to what’s happening in celebrity news, as well. Like many others, our attention was captured with the most recent royal news and impending royal wedding.
With the announcement of Prince William and Catherine (Kate) Middleton’s engagement, Britons – and much of the western world, for that matter – anxiously await what appears to be a Diana-esque wedding in the near future.
However, it seems that Britons are looking forward to more than just another royal wedding. People.com reports that according to two polls in the United Kingdom, Brits prefer to have Prince William as the future King, over Prince Charles.
According to a Reuter’s report printed online Saturday, November 21, “An ICM poll, published in Britain’s News of the World newspaper, showed that 64 percent of people wanted William and his future bride as next in line to the throne, while a YouGov poll in the Sunday Times found the majority of Britons thought William would make a better king than his father Charles.” This news follows on the heels of Prince William’s and Kate Middleton’s – both 28 – recent engagement.
The Reuter’s report clarifies the findings: “The ICM survey also found that fewer than one in five people wanted the crown to pass to Charles and Camilla. The YouGov poll showed that 44 percent of people thought Charles should make way for his son to become the next king, against 37 percent who thought he should not.”
It seems that youth and vitality are what Britons want in a Monarchy, and they don’t think that Prince Charles, 62, fits the bill. Although Britons have somewhat softened toward Prince Charles’s wife, Camilla, over the years, opinions are split about whether she should be the next queen, with older, more affluent Brits favoring tradition and younger Brits vying for youth.
According to CNN.com, “The last question was whether William, the second in line to the throne, should become the next monarch instead of his father. 45 percent of respondents agreed, while 41 percent disagreed […] Women were more likely than men to agree with that statement — 49 percent to 41 percent. Those in the lowest income group also tended to agree with that statement more than did those in the highest group — 51 percent over 41 percent.”
There’s no doubt that it will be interesting to watch the events of another royal wedding unfold. In light of the economic hardships that Great Britain now faces, and people revert more and more to online degrees, some wonder if it would be appropriate to stage such a lavish wedding. However, as most fairy tales hold true, every young girl hopes to marry her Prince Charming one day, and there’s a spark of hope in this story. We hope that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s fairy tale wedding turns out with a happier ending than Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s story, regardless of who becomes the next king of the royal British monarchy. We want the lavish wedding. It’s what we’re hoping for.

Kate Middleton is currently in possession of a sapphire engagement ring, given to her by boyfriend of 9-years Prince William, now knock-offs of that ring have become the must have accessory of the holiday season.
While the $100,000 ring is out of the reach of most buyers, the $1,000 replica according to New York jewelers is flying off the shelf.
According to ring maker The Natural Sapphire Co. orders have been coming in so fast since the wedding announcement that they can’t make duplicates quickly enough.
While $100,00 for a ring is quite expensive, heck $1,000 for a replica isn’t that cheap either, the estimated $40 million cost for the royal wedding is by far more expensive.
Fun fact: The ring Middleton is wearing is the same one that Prince Charles gave to Princess Diana when they first became engaged in 1981.
