GMA: 15th Anniversary Of Harry Potter
It’s the 15th anniversary of Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone, so Scholastic gave Good Morning America an exclusive first look at the first of seven new covers being developed for the series.
The new cover for Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone looked really cool and appeared to depict Harry Potter’s first trip to Diagon Alley with Hagrid. Besides Harry Potter and Hagrid, the cover illustration also includes the Snowy Owl Hedwig, as the three of them stand in the middle of the alley and wizards and witches push past them.
The new covers will be available in September.
GMA: Hollywood Baby Boom

GMA: Kate Middleton Pregnant Bikini Pictures
A huge controversy surrounding Duchess Kate has erupted and it all comes from some pictures taken of her in a bikini, showing off her pregnant belly. The photos were snapped by paparazzi while she and Prince William were vacationing in the Caribbean. The Royal Family is saying this is a clear breach of security. The British media has decided not to publish the pictures and ABC News also declined showing them. But in Australia, some magazines have shown them.
Lara Spencer sat down with People magazine’s Managing Editor Larry Hackett. He said that they were approached to buy the photos, but People didn’t want to go near it. “Yes, you can print them, but should you?” Hackett asked.
Larry Hackett said that it’s bad for the brand to publish the photos because of the way they were taken and because of the public reaction to this breach of privacy.
GMA: Naomi Campbell and Tyra Banks Feud
Tyra Banks is gearing up to start season 20 of America’s Next Top Model, but Naomi Campbell just began her new show The Face on Tuesday. Both shows are reality competitions surrounding models and run by former models, and Naomi Campbell picked up Nigel Barker after Tyra Banks fired him.
The two model superstars have been feuding for 15 years, which apparently ended with a tearful make-up on Tyra’s talk show in 2005. Neither side would comment on the feud.
But Nigel Barker said that he was out of a job for about a week between America’s Next Top Model and The Face. He said he wasn’t bitter, because that’s not long enough to get bitter. But he did say that now that he’s a host, Tyra Banks should watch out.
