    A 19yr old won the competition to design an emblem for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Lovely! https://www.vam.ac.uk/info/the-platinum-jubilee-emblem-competition https://vanda-production-assets.s3.amazonaws.com/2021/08/03/08/56/31/55aed738-7f10-426a-a398-78616abe8ee6/Winning-jubilee-emblem.jpg

    Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin

    ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 07/28 **8** This former A+ list mostly movie actress all of you know, has invested her entire life savings into crypto and it is a crypto that is not doing well. We are talking tens upon tens of millions of dollars. Gwyneth Paltrow’s ‘endorsement’ of cryptocurrency is a shameless ad https://thenextweb.com/news/paltrow-goop-bitcoin-cryptocurrency

    Olympics

    I have some stuff recorded, but haven't really watched anything. Didn't even watch the opening ceremony - did anyone watch that? Worth me watching, or should I delete from TiVo? I do plan to watch next week individual gymnastics. I like the diving too. I'm usually really into it, but this year I'm having trouble getting started.

    Olympics

    I'm not dating this thread because Beijing starts in like 6 months, so.... 😉 Is anyone watching? There are a few sports we always watch (critiquing diving - neither of us have ANY experience - gives us great joy) and we love to find new different things to watch. I always watch all the women's soccer that I can. Lainey posted some Olympian tiktoks yesterday - such fun! I don't have tiktok and watched the videos on her site so I'm sure I missed stuff, but enjoyable anyway. Love the behind the scenes shots of the Olympic village and the swag bags the US team gets from sponsors. Wow. I have been frustrated the past 2 days that 2/3 of what I've recorded to watch has not been what it was supposed to be. Ah well.

    I agree, BUT - the Scobie book was fun fluff and I did enjoy it! It's gossip, really. A memoir about mental health & personal growth? I don't think will be frothy and fun - so that's my reason not to want to read it 😉

    Britney Spears

    I definitely assumed it was that bad for the conservatorship to be renewed (though I know it's easier to maintain the conservatorship than to have it granted in the first place). I'm still so torn on this issue - I feel really strongly about bodily autonomy BUT if you have an illness that prevents rational decisions.....

    Britney Spears

    Manic Panic July 28, 2021 [Blind Gossip] This performer has been covered by the press for decades. She gets so much attention and so much publicity that you might think you know everything about her. You don’t. One thing that you may not have noticed is that her family has never discussed her medical conditions or how she behaves outside of the public eye. Not every celebrity with a medical problem has received the same treatment. For example, the Kardashian family has talked very publicly about Kanye West and his bipolar disorder. Having your relatives talk about your medial condition in public doesn’t work for every family. Our performer’s family chose to follow her wishes in that regard. After one particularly horrible incident where she [redacted], she was treated and stabilized. She made her family promise not to talk about her [medical conditions] and her meds. She didn’t want that to be what defined her. She wanted to keep performing and “live a normal life.” They kept that promise for years. They also never publicly disclosed multiple incidents of extreme behavior that happened out of the public eye. The mania was extreme. During her highs she would babble in long run-on sentences for minutes at at time. She would sometimes not sleep for days, but instead of being tired she would be hyperactive. She would sometimes talk about things she said she could hear or see that no one else could, which was really scary. She would also behave extremely inappropriate sexually. Then the pendulum would swing the other way. During her lows, she was horribly depressed and crying and she needed to be watched 24 hours a day. They were always afraid that if they left her alone for even five minutes during the lows, she would harm herself and not live through it. While they experimented with many different treatments over the years, there were a few occasions where they lost control. Of course she hates the meds and she hates the testing and she hates the monitoring and she would prefer for all of it to stop. There were a few times where she stopped taking her prescribed meds and consumed huge amounts of illegal drugs and alcohol, probably as way of self-medicating. She wanted to drive even when she was drunk or high. She even disappeared for days at a time. They didn’t know where she was or who she was with or what she was doing. She would be found at some stranger’s house or sleeping in a car somewhere. It’s a miracle that worse things didn’t happen to her. Then her family would have to retrieve her, get her sober, get her back on her meds, etc. She is a sweet girl and very talented, so is hard for someone on the outside who sees her perform to recognize how far the pendulum swings, how erratic she can be, and how scary it is for everyone around her. Her illnesses are sad and exhausting for her family and sad and frustrating for her. Her family is in a panic about what life will be like for her if she is on her own. Will someone take advantage of her? Will she stop taking her meds? Will she go back to doing drugs and drinking? Will she hurt herself or others? While you may have strong feelings about people being in complete control of their own lives, you now know a little more about what has been going on outside of the public eye. It’s a difficult situation for everyone. We hope that our performer finds a way to live a safe and happy life. Similar: The 5150 Performer: [Optional] Should she be given total control over her own life? Always use real names and keep your comments civil.

    I won't bother to read the memoir. As with the Scobie book, all the most interesting/ controversial/ salty parts will be discussed in the media so why bother to read it in its entirety?

    Sorry for the delay in updating your ChitChat status as a donator. I made some updates today.

    ENTERTAINMENT LAWYER 07/26 **9** Part of several of the agreements made by this A-/B+ list actor who is an Oscar winner/nominee is that he wouldn't drink or use drugs. He is doing both.

    Annabelle Maher

    One of Annabelle Maher's family members is one of my family-by-choice-friends (FBCF) While I've never met Annabelle in person, we've both gathered at the same campfire - just on different nights. She is a good egg according to everyone I know that has met her. It has been interesting hearing her slow rise to fame. This week, she was on the TODAY with Hoda & Jenna!! Check her out. Hope she makes it big one day! https://www.today.com/video/tomorrow-s-talent-today-meet-the-14-year-old-singer-who-played-for-president-biden-117068869788?fbclid=IwAR1y5tX7qcnZoJfVLVAE9dDHoVny74ub7Yoe_PnEKu2ajqDXVDyrAyqO-fQ

    I've been ok with all their other moves - kids books, Netflix & spotify deals, series on mental health - great. A memoir in your 30s? Nope, don't need it. A step too far 😉

    Coronavirus

    This delta variant is scary stuff. My fire engine red part of Virginia was barely complying with mask wearing before restrictions were for all intents and purposes lifted in mid-June. Maxiedad and I just got back from the grocery store and we were the only ones masked even though we are fully vaccinated. I would bet the mortgage that we were also one of the few at the grocery store who were fully vaccinated too. Because mah-freedumbs.

    I didn't realize how much she's had done until I started reading the recent gossip and people talked about it....And shared photos like you just did 😉

    Coronavirus

    I’m also curious about the prevelance of long Covid in people who get it after being vaccinated. It’s been 10 months since my son had it and he still can’t smell anything. Granted, that’s a mild issue, but 10 months is a long time for someone who has the more severe side effects. I’m hoping that vaccination cuts down on long COVID as well in people who still contract the virus. My husband went back to work on Monday and large swaths of the DC workforce seem to have started back this month. Even in my very progressive part of Northern VA with its high vaccination rates, mask wearing is starting to fall off just about everywhere. I saw a handful of massless people at the store this week which is absolutely new to me here. If it’s “over” here, I’d hate to see what it’s like in Missouri.

    oooh. Interesting piece from Page Six! It is pretty crazy to see what Charlene used to look like, before all the cosmetic surgeries and injections, and how different from now. I honestly wouldn't recognize her as the same person.

    I just read that Night Court actor Charles Robinson has gone forward at the age of 75 due to cardiac arrest. God bless you and his family always!!! Holly P.S. After Night Court ended, he had a nine episode appearance on the Home Improvement show as Tim's Tool Time boss, Bud Harper that is, starting in season five which began in the fall of 1995.
