Schiffer May be Playing Host to Ghost
Onlookers booed Claudia Schiffer at her wedding last weekend because she refused to come out from under a blanket to show off her bridal gown. Now, says Britain's Ghost Club, she's about to be booed again, big time, reports Reuters. Coldham Hall, the 16th century English country mansion where the German supermodel Claudia Schiffer and her new husband, English film producer Matthew Vaughn, both 31, will reside (and where they held their wedding reception) is haunted, according to the club, which calls itself "Britain's oldest psychical research organization." The BGC says on its Web site that it has already written the Vaughns to warn them to expect to see spooks among the images when they develop their the wedding photographs. The newlyweds are on their honeymoon at an undisclosed location and have not commented on the revelation. They reportedly paid $7 million for Coldham Hall. Believed to be haunting the property, says Reuters, is a poltergeist known as Penelope, a member of the Rockwood family that had owned the sprawling residence for several generations. Penelope, a young nun, supposedly only comes a-calling during summer months, which is when she visited the mansion on leave from her convent.
