    Presley dynasty

    I think she had a known drug problem, was depressed, and had a family history of early death from heart disease. I also think she had a past with the very shady and secretive Scientology and we live in a conspiracy theory society. So if I were a gossip columnist with wobbly sources, this would be an easy blind to manufacture and fill space under the protection of “just asking questions” cover. That’s not to say it COULDN’T be true, just that it’s a freebie for blind items writers.

    Alec Baldwin

    I did a search and didn’t find a thread. Is that possible? I can’t think of any other category where this belongs. Shocking.just tragic and shocking, Alec Baldwin Shoots Prop Gun, Killing 1, Injuring Another on Set of ‘Rust,' Officials Say Halyna Hutchins, the director of photography, was killed and Joel Souza, the film's director, was injured, according to police Published 3 hours ago • Updated 19 mins ago Producer and actor Alec Baldwin fired a prop gun that killed one woman and injured a man on the set of the movie “Rust” in New Mexico on Thursday, Santa Fe County Sheriff’s deputies confirmed.

    https://apple.news/Arh4g3jgAR_mMxr_cnP0l9g I thought this gets close to what I’m feeling as I read.it just feels sad and inevitable. The rest of it is just the noise surrounding this family’s unique disfunction.

    Same. I feel he is well intentioned, and I think you can both try to help yourself and simultaneously help others. Is he horribly naive and clueless, yes. But it seems like he means as well as he can and that he’s honestly trying to know better/do better. Which is more that I can say for others in that family. And I KNOW it’s one sided, but boy does his feeling for Camilla line up with what I want to feel about her.

    Teenager and I have watched the Netflix show while she was home on break. She wanted to read the book too. I used one of my audible credits for myself, but she wanted the print version to take back to school and share with her roommates. I ordered it online for in-store pickup and we went to my small suburban DC store today. The lady at the counter said they had 65 preorders and she said basically everyone who came to check out today either bought a copy or was picking up a hold. We saw a bunch of people picking them up from the in store display. It was definitely the hot commodity in my local shop.

    Joshua Jackson and Diane Kruger

    I can't find a thread for these two, just their names in a number of blind items. One of those blinds was about a couple that might divorce before anyone knows they were married. Just curious, do we have any confirmation yet as to whether or not they are married? I saw this article today and they are both wearing rings... http://news.instyle.com/2014/07/31/cute-couple-style-alert-diane-kruger-and-joshua-jackson-step-out-in-matching-hats/ The couple that dresses together stays together! Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson were seen out and about on Thursday morning wearing adorable matching straw fedoras. The pair looked happy and relaxed as they left the Bowery Hotel in New York City. Kruger and Jackson even coordinated the rest of their outfits a bit, both opting for relaxed denim ensembles and cool shades. Kruger paired her topper with Levis shorts, a graphic tee, black ballet flats, a black handbag, and aviator sunglasses, while Jackson went for denim on denim. If you love this stylish duos hats, weve got more where that came from! Get inspired by 12 celebs wearing chic summer hats in our gallery.

    I only just started watching yesterday. I was waiting for my daughter to get back from school. I basically agree with what witchkitten said. All of the bad stuff can be true, but they can also be exasperating. At least in his case, I feel like because of his insulation, it is nearly impossible for him to be really self aware this early in the “freedom” but I give him credit for trying so hard. And I think she would be more like able if she were a little more honest, it I think some of that comes from the intense defensiveness. She’s obviously a very smart and ambitious (in a positive way) woman who, in the grand scheme of things, wants a nice life that makes things better for others when possible. I honestly wish them nothing but the best. I will say that a lot of the constant nagging doubt I have of them (and i have a lot) gets lessened every time I read something like the Jeremy Clarkson article in the Sun. That was absolutely vile. What on earth has she done that is remotely worse than a serial killer who murdered her own stepdaughter. And the violent misogyny just so out in the open in a national publication by a public figure who was just with Camila. Makes me really think about how much damage this current reign will do to the royals overall. Goodwill for that very tiny old woman really held off a LOT of shit.

    That’s just horrible. The video was hard to watch. What a scary thing to have to face.

    Celeb Death Watch

    I occasionally would catch some of Days in the afternoons during lunch until it went to streaming this fall. He was working pretty recently but looked quite I’ll and was pretty much always seated in scenes.

    Celeb Death Watch

    Yeah, I was talking to my husband. Sad, but entirely unsurprising. On another note, not dead, but at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony yesterday Duran Duran was inducted and they announced that their original guitarist, Andy Taylor, has terminal cancer (ETA I just read the actual letter and it says Stage 4, not terminal, but it’s still not curable and I would imagine the very recent change in his ability to travel isn’t a good sign) and was unable to travel to the ceremony.

    So I guess they got the sneaky quiet divorce and it’s already finalized?

    Rihanna

    Got it. But rereading the blind, it seems like there are actually two people in it, right? The recent song release by a “singer” and then the new one that’s not that bad, but still bad. So Rihanna is the second one. Who is the first?

    Rihanna

    Did I miss something happening to her that would make a change in her voice? Illness or something? I kind of don’t get where the BI is coming from.

    Baby Boom

    The article below is from ENews. So, they met in April. She’s pregnant enough now that she knows it’s a girl and is showing. Damn. Nothing wrong with getting busy but for a woman who has had some poor choices of spontaneous “true love” this feels like maybe a little rushed. Especially since there was a blind about a woman desperate to keep her new husband who was planning a house and insta baby to make sure he would stay that we all thought was her. And this is not that husband. I know media coverage is wicked so I often just hope, especially now that I’m mom to young adults, that these people have good parents and friends and mental health practitioners so these situations aren’t as bad as they seem on paper. Kaley Cuoco's baby bump pictures are out of this universe. The Big Bang Theory alum showed off her baby bump on social media for the first time while announcing she is expecting her first child with Tom Pelphrey. In a polaroid photo taken at home, Kaley is wearing casual sweatpants and a bra top with a visible baby bump, while Tom hugs her from behind with his hand on her hips. Other celebratory photos show the couple splitting a confetti cake and revealing their baby girl's sex with giant grins on their faces, Tom holding a tiny onesie that reads "I love my Daddy" and the pair sharing a kiss with matching "papa bear" and "mama bear" mugs in hand. "Baby girl Pelphrey coming 2023," The actress captioned her Oct. 11 Instagram post. "beyond blessed and over the moon… I [heart] you @tommypelphrey !!!" Kaley also shared photos of her holding up pregnancy tests, and another image of the Ozark actor resting his hand on her baby bump as the two take a mirror selfie. Tom shared the images too, captioning his post, "And then it was even MORE BETTER. Love you more than ever @kaleycuoco." The couple's pregnancy announcement comes after they fell in love at first sight at the Ozark premiere in April. They made their relationship official on Instagram in May, where Tom dedicated a reading to Kaley about having someone "who will thank you are worth saving."

    Official 2020 Divorce Poll

    Watching Access Hollywood and they are going heavy on the speculation about Tom Brady and Gisele getting divorced. They are being careful about hedging but discussing lawyers and accountants. There has been a LOT of smoke about them since the unretirement.

    This is from a Vogue piece remembering her photo shoots with the queen. https://www.vogue.com/article/annie-leibovitz-remembers-photographing-queen-elizabeth-ii/amp?fbclid=IwAR0pgeq9qlWMkjbgD597lDrw0z90fF4OpkBmkiijLgB4DNJ0JH7P4E4VoRg This is my favorite part. I’ve always liked this “simple” family photo and I like it even more with the back story: And then, ten years later, we get this other call. I asked for Balmoral and they said no, Windsor. This time, she had ideas for the shoot. She wanted her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and Princess Anne and her corgis. Probably the most endearing sitting on that shoot with her was with the grandchildren. They were running around calling her “gran” or “granny.” It was chaotic and we asked if she would let Princess Charlotte sit on her lap. And she said, “But I’ll get all black and blue”—because at the time Charlotte was a terror. Mia Tindall [another great-granddaughter] wouldn’t even get in the picture. She was running around and finally the Queen gave her her purse and Mia started going through it and walked back into the picture and we quickly took a couple of frames. Photographed by Annie Leibovitz The queen with two of her grandchildren (James, Viscount Severn and Lady Louise) and five of her great-grandchildren (Mia Tindall, Princess Charlotte, Savannah Phillips, Prince George, and Isla Phillips), in the Green Drawing Room at Windsor in 2016.

    I’ve seen that gentleman tell that story on camera several times over several years so I tend to think it’s true. It is a great story but I’m a little sad that after all this time no one has come forward as the other half with the photos.

    Saw Charlene and Albert. She does not look well. Hopefully this is just an awful photo. I know there have been a lot of rumors about her health and a lot of them were kind of blown off, but… maybe so… https://apple.news/AXEn9ZWFoQtuPYtrFdU6FOQ

    I definitely would. As you said, just for the history of it. My teenage daughter and i were discussing that even as young as she is, she is unlikely to ever see another queen in England, and even for Kings, you may only see a funeral once more in your lifetime. More likely there won’t be another 70 year reign for ages. If it were that easily accessible, I’d go just to say I was there.

    The weirdest one… I was in Morgantown, WV yesterday. Like, this is a comparatively small city in a relatively insignificant US state. Driving across a bridge, they have an electronic billboard advertising all of the local businesses. It rotates between a few about every 20 seconds or so…Shop, restaurant, law firm, full page slide memorializing HRH Queen Elizabeth. Huh? It was just so absolutely random.

    I feel like if she had died a long time ago, he probably would not have gone with Charles. But when you’re pushing 80, I think it’s just time to accept that’s who you are.

    Also, I’m very curious about the funeral. Obv. I’ve never been through this before but has anyone read about a designated survivor type situation? Like, who doesn’t participate in the funeral and is kept away in case of something bad happens there? Is it like a William, or a rugby players kid?

    I’m quite shocked by how emotional this has left me feeling. I’m not British and have no reason to feel this way, but I do. On a practical side, I find it hard to believe that the same amount of loyalty will be felt by and for Charles (III). Curious to see where the Commonwealth and the monarchy stand in a decade. I think there’s been a lot of “as long as Elizabeth is alive” sentiment.
