Meghan Markle is Going To Meet The Queen This Weekend
Actress Emma Thompson revealed that Donald Trump once offered her free accommodations at one of his properties—and possibly something more intimate. Emma was in her trailer on the set of the 1998 film Primary Colors—in which, ironically, she portrayed Hillary Clinton—when her phone rang. On the other end was Trump. He offered to put her up in a “comfortable” room at one of his Trump Towers, adding, “I think we would get on very well. Maybe we could have dinner sometime.” Ultimately, she declined the offer.
Elton John has opened up about his upcoming 70th birthday. He says, "Seventy sounds so archaic doesn't it?" Elton says in a new radio interview. "When I was growing up, 70 sounded like the end of the world. But things have changed, you’re only as old as you feel inside." Elton also discusses how becoming a dad has changed his life, describing fatherhood as “the greatest thing you’ll ever know.” "If I was 15 years younger, I’d have two or three more [kids],” he adds. “Without question." Elton, who turns 70 this Friday, shares 6-year-old son Zachary and 4-year-old son Elijah with husband David Furnish.
Apparently Beyoncé has turned down a $1 million dollar offer for her twins' first pictures. My source tells me she plans to let the world see her babies when she is ready and on her own social media pages. She wants to control the pictures and everything else about the announcement.” Nothing really surprising there… that’s kind of the way she’s always been.
Suits actress Meghan Markle is going to meet Queen Elizabeth II on Sunday, Britain’s Mother's Day (aka Mothering Sunday). It’s the first time Prince Harry’s girlfriend is meeting his grandmother. Meghan and Elizabeth have been dating since mid-2016 and since their relationship has recently been given the seal of approval by Prince Charles, they are reportedly now set to meet the monarch. Harry is said to be intent on transforming his late mother Princess Di’s emerald tiara into an engagement ring.
Gwyneth Paltrow shocked followers of her Goop lifestyle website yesterday by publishing an explicit sex guide as part of the second annual Sex Issue. The issue features a not-safe-for-work Q&A about bum fun with psychoanalyst and author Paul Joannides. “First it was shocking, then it was having a cultural moment, now it’s practically standard in the modern bedroom repertoire--or so a quick scan of any media, from porn to HBO, will tell you,” the article reads. This year’s Sex Issue also includes a discussion of the ethics of porn, a piece on the importance of sex education for young girls, and a guide to having casual sex. Gwyneth also provided a list of her favourite approved lingerie, oils and sex toys, including a massage ring that costs $795.
Apparently Brad Pitt is smelling better since splitting from Angelina Jolie. My source says he is doing much better and seems happy again. Apparently he has started working out again and has hired a private chef to prepare healthy meals. I guess he’s just taking better care of himself overall. It got to a point where he was kind of known for smelling a bit… but post-Angie Brad is smelling like heaven again, from what I’m told.
According to my source, JLo refused to be slimed at Nickelodeon's Kids Choice Awards because she spent $10,000 on her hair and makeup. Also, she borrowed the clothes she was wearing so she would have to pay for them if she destroyed them. I’m told that even if the producers covered all her costs she still wouldn’t do it because her look is everything.
Thanks to the years she’s spent hiding her face behind wigs, it’s no surprise that fans are doing double-takes as photos emerge of Sia without anything screening her beautiful visage.
Sia was spotted at LAX Wednesday, keeping her look casual in Kenzo sweats for her long flight to Dubai where she is set to perform this weekend.
Asked by Nightline why she hides her face, her answer (issued with her back turned to him) was simple: "I don't want to be famous, or recognizable. I don't want to be critiqued about the way that I look on the Internet."
William Shatner is not at all happy that Nick Viall is on Dancing with the Stars, and he wants the Bachelor star to get the boot. William went on a Twitter tirade against Nick earlier this week, urging viewers to vote off the reality star, saying, “My goal for #DWTS is to knock Bachelor Nick out ASAP. Who is with me?”
William, who said he’s watched the show “for years,” doesn’t even seem to have a horse in the race, tweeting, “Whoever your favorite is - just not Nick- make the 10 phone calls for them.” Nick simply responded to Shatner with a sad emoji.
Dancing with the Stars host Tom Bergeron asked for a truce on Wednesday, wishing William a happy birthday and tweeting, “Any chance I can negotiate a truce between you & @viallnicholas28 ??” Later, Tom joked, “If I can bring peace to this reality show I’m moving on to @Schwarzenegger & @realDonaldTrump.”
William finally made peace, sort of, with Nick, offering him a virtual rose. The peace offering was accepted, with Nick wishing Shatner a belated happy 86th birthday. “Saw Nick Viall dance,” Shatner said 45 minutes after extending his peace offering. “He can really dance. I hope he’s as good a lover.”
