Welcome to H&H's daily news roundup! Grab a mug of tea and a scone and let's gossip about what's hot in the romance world right now.
—It's tea time at Downton Abbey AND at Heroes and Heartbreakers...how fortuitous. If you want a literal tea break this afternoon—Downton style—head over to the Republic of Tea for Downton Abbey theme teapots, tea, and tea accessories. We particularly are eyeing the happy couple, Anna and Bates, in the Downstairs tea collection. Have any caught your eye?
—Fifty Shades of Grey may not have as much sexytimes as we'd been expecting; according to Entertainment Weekly, which in turn sources the Sunday Times, sex scenes make up (only?) about 1/5 (or 20 minutes) of the film.
—Speaking of 50 shades...let's talk shades of nail polish. OPI along with Fifty Shades of Grey launched a new line of nail polishes set to the theme of your favorite billionaire. Want to Cement the Deal, Embrace the Grey, or perhaps you find yourself Romantically Involved? These are all shades (sadly there aren't 50 of them...we sense a missed opportunity) featured in the line.
—Chris Evans and Chris Pratt will both be making good on their Seahawks/Patriots Super Bowl Bet. To hear about the whole story, check out our earlier post about the original bet.
...Other football references ensued, but you get the gist. Good Guys, those Chrises!
