💕 it’s a girl 💕

I thought we already knew this, but maybe I’m thinking of a different pregnant lady? Katy Perry is expecting a girl this summer. We know that because she announced it with this Instagram, where her baby-daddy Orlando Bloom is covered in pink frosting, looking completely blissed-out and in love with Katy. The frosting makes me wonder if Katy actually threw herself a little gender-reveal party in isolation, and that makes me wonder if she actually invited people over to her house and all of that. Quarantine, Katy!! PS… I absolutely loathe when people smear food on their faces or other people’s faces. I find it the height of rudeness! First of all, IT IS A WASTE OF FOOD. Second of all, gross, it’s sticky!

Katy announced her pregnancy one month ago, but she was pretty far along when she did announce it. People keep saying that she’s due this summer and I believe it. Orlando and Katy were planning their wedding for *just* before Katy’s due date, but they’ve quietly postponed everything. My guess is that they’ll either A) just invite a justice of the peace or minister over to her house and have a low-key ceremony before the baby is born or B) just postpone all of it until next year.

Anyway, I’m happy they’re expecting a girl. Orlando already has a son, Flynn, with his ex-wife Miranda Kerr. And I bet Katy wanted a girl!

Duchess Kate ‘does not feel she has to compete’ with Duchess Meghan now

The Duchess of Cambridge is competitive AF. It is known. Perhaps it was even an admirable quality at one point, back when Kate was a sporty girl at a posh school. But her competitive drive took a weird turn when she got with Prince William. She would “compete” with William’s side-chicks and female friends by copying their looks and style. Then when Prince Harry started dating Meghan Markle, Kate’s competitive side developed into something quite odd. Suddenly, after so many years, Kate was throwing herself into work and showing how keen she could be, all to show up Meghan. She threw together a “substantial” issue portfolio called the Early Years initiative, aka the Struggle Survey, at the very last minute. She was incredibly keen to be dressed up like a Future Queen, with lots of tiaras and diamonds (while the Queen cut off Meghan’s access to the royal jewels). Keen Competitive Kate was positioned as the perfect (white) English rose (cough) to Meghan’s deranged American.

When the Sussexit was announced, I knew what this would mean for Kate’s larger schedule and vibe. The lack of competition would mean that Kate would regress. She would no longer need the massive embiggening campaign. She would no longer need to even try a little bit. Still, I thought the regression would take a few months. Apparently not – according to the Sun’s “insider,” Kate has been regressing for months and we didn’t even notice.

Kate Middleton is said to have returned to “much simpler” hair and fashion style this year, as she no longer has to “compete” with glamorous Meghan Markle, according to an insider. The Duchess of Sussex, 38, has officially stepped back from royal duties, and moved to LA with Prince Harry and Archie, and this has left Kate feeling more comfortable.

An insider told Fabulous: “Someone who knows Kate well said ‘the atmosphere since the Sussexes left has noticeably improved. Kate does not feel she has to compete now. She has gone back to a much simpler style’. Kate feels very much more relaxed now. She most definitely went through a phase two years ago where she seemed slightly intimidated by Meghan. She was afraid of comparisons being drawn between them and that Meghan was the one who looked glamorous and popular for a while.”

The source added that now pressure has been slightly lifted, Kate’s make up artist, Arabella Preston, is now using “less eye make up, paler lips colours and more high street nail polishes in less obvious shades.” The source continued: “She wears far less make up and looks happy, relaxed and sporting high Street clothes.”

[From The Sun]

See, that was why Kate’s style was so bonkers during the Irish tour! Ol’ girl was just trying to simplify her post-Meghan style with her deranged clown ruffles and Irish flag cosplay. What I enjoy about this piece is how blunt it is about Kate’s jealousy and pettiness. After all that embiggening and all of Kate’s stalwart defenders arguing that “it’s not a competition” between Kate and Meghan, turns out it was. Turns out Kate “was afraid of comparisons being drawn between them and that Meghan was the one who looked glamorous and popular for a while.” FOR A WHILE. Besides all of that, it’s yet another way to blame Meghan for something: it’s Meghan’s fault that poor Kate was so intimidated and tried so hard to be glamorous and exciting, thank God Meghan is gone.

Hannah Brown Left The Quarantine Crew & It’s Truly The End Of An Era

It’s a sad day for Bachelor fans. After spending weeks in isolation with Tyler Cameron and his friends in Florida, Hannah Brown left the Quarantine Crew to go back to Alabama amid the coronavirus pandemic. Based on the group’s recent social media posts, they all appeared to have really enjoyed their time together, and that’s why fans are so sad they’re finally going their separate ways.

Brown’s stay with Cameron has definitely raised some eyebrows, with many fans thinking they’re more than friends. To give you a recap about their complicated history, the stars appeared on Season 15 of The Bachelorette, during which Brown turned down Cameron’s proposal to pursue a relationship with Jed Wyatt. However, during the season’s reunion episode, Brown revealed it didn’t work out with Wyatt, so she asked Cameron out, hoping they could rekindle their romance. He agreed to go on a date with her, but shortly after the episode aired in July 2019, Cameron was seen out with Gigi Hadid. Cameron and Hadid’s relationship didn’t last long because they split sometime that October.

After Cameron’s mother passed away in early March, Brown reportedly attended the family’s celebration of life event in Florida. Brown stayed to quarantine with Cameron, his brother Ryan, and his friends Matt James, Jacob Laham, Kate Dooley, Olivia Fariaa, and Matthew Hayball. They’ve nicknamed themselves the "Quarantine Crew" and even created a group Instagram and TikTok page to document their time together.

Now, after weeks in Florida with friends, Brown went back home to Alabama to spend time with her family. James took to Instagram to share a video confirming Brown is no longer staying with them.

"Breezy is back in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Her and Marshall drove home late last night. They want to ride this thing out with their families," James said. "In the meantime, please continue to share information with us on how we can allocate resources and information to service our students, not only in New York, but all across the country, and that would be via our page ABC Food Tours."

Cameron and Brown may no longer be quarantining together, but it’s clear they’re closer than ever before.

If you think you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, which include fever, shortness of breath, and cough, call your doctor before going to get tested. If you’re anxious about the virus’s spread in your community, visit the CDC for up-to-date information and resources, or seek out mental health support.

Jennifer Garner doesn’t want her kids to meet Ana de Armas ‘until the time is right’

Yesterday I asked what Jennifer Garner thought of Ben Affleck’s near-daily PDA walks with his new much-younger girlfriend, Ana de Armas. Jen did a nice family walk of her own, complete with all her kids, the nanny, the dog and a cat in a stroller! It was super cute and it may have been unavoidable that the paparazzi were there. The paps are bored and camped out in that neighborhood waiting for Afflarmas especially. Plus they’ve been stalking the Garner-Afflecks for years. (It’s a flies to honey situation I think.) Soon after I published that, Garner’s go-to outlet, US Magazine, had a story about how Ana is not going to meet their kids anytime soon.

A source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly that [Jennifer Garner], does not want her three children with [Ben Affleck] to meet [Ana de Armas] until the time is right.

“Ben is understanding,” the source tells Us. “[He] said he would work with Jennifer to prepare the kids for meeting [Ana].”

[From US Magazine]

In the video on Us’ site they add the detail that Jennifer is “supportive” and “happy” for Ben’s new relationship. Plus they say “Ben’s relationship with Ana is serious and he is already thinking about having kids with her. Ben loves children and loves being a dad. He would love to have kids with her one day.” How long has Ben even been with Ana?! Us Mag says in that video that they’ve only been together since early March. That was when we first heard about them too. Although they worked together in the fall they’re both so demonstrative, and Ben operates so quickly (narcissists do that), that I doubt they were serious for more than a month before that. I bet that Jen is just waiting it out to see if they’ll last. That’s what I would do. Plus, Ana looks younger than their nanny. I said it. And their dad cheated on their mom with their nanny! (Sure they were “taking a break” but still living together.) Did the kids even know about that? Did they wonder why their nanny had to leave so soon? They’re going to google it if they haven’t already.

These are new photos from yesterday of Ben and Ana doing their PDA pap stroll and Jennifer Garner and her kids taking a walk with their nanny and cat in a stroller. Their dog Birdie stayed at home this time. For those of you who wonder where Ben’s majestic German Shepherd has been, I’ve seen aerial photos of his mansion and he has a huge backyard. I bet that dog is super happy to be going on walks now though. I also assume he or she gets along well with Ana’s little dog. In videos on the photo agency’s subscriber site, you can see Ben’s dog walking slowly for Ana’s dog, like they’re looking out for each other. In those videos Ben seems kind of surley and takes out his phone a few times to take pictures of the paps.

Thanks to all of you yesterday who told me not to adopt a border collie unless I had a yard. I watched my friend’s beautiful border collie for two weeks before all this and I fell in love with her. (The dog, Mango, not my friend.) Mango is an older dog who is content with long walks, but my friend has a yard where Mango plays frisbee often. Once I convince my landlord to let me get one, I will consider a breed that’s more of a homebody.

Andrew Parker Bowles tested positive for corona, he hung out with Princess Anne?

Embed from Getty Images

Here are some photos of Andrew Parker Bowles hanging out with the Princess Royal, HRH Princess Anne, on March 10th and 11th. They spent time together at the Cheltenham Festival. It’s especially interesting, I suppose, because Anne and Andrew were once lovers and then he married Camilla Parker Bowles. Then Camilla and Prince Charles had an affair throughout the Parker-Bowles’ marriage, then Andrew and Camilla divorced, and Andrew and Anne are somehow still good friends. Andrew and Camilla are still chummy too, and not just for their kids and grandkids. Basically, the whole thing is incredibly incestuous, but it’s just the way the British blue bloods operate.

Why bring up this old history? Because Andrew Parker Bowles has tested positive for the coronavirus, and now people are like “but he was hanging out with royalty just a few weeks ago!”

The former husband of Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for coronavirus. Andrew Parker-Bowles, 80, was one of many attendees at the Cheltenham Festival earlier this month who has reported symptoms of the respiratory illness, according to The Telegraph. The annual horse racing event went on as scheduled between March 10 and March 13 despite fears surrounding the outbreak, attracting over 250,000 people over four days.

Parker-Bowles, who announced his divorce from Camilla in 1995 after 22 year of marriage, was spotted with Princess Anne, Queen Elizabeth‘s 69-year-old daughter, on at least two days during the event. Anne’s daughter, Zara Tindall, was also in close contact with him on March 10, the first day of the festival.

[From People]

Yikes at the festival being some kind of ground-zero for a deadly viral infection. As I keep saying though, it feels like London – and now the Cheltenham Festival – was a viral hotbed during that same seven-day period, roughly March 7th through March 14th. There were tons of big, public events in London and no one was self-isolating or social distancing yet and so many infections happened during that seven-day period. Anyway, I hope Andrew is okay, and I hope Anne and Zara are fine too. As far as anyone knows, Anne is currently self-isolating in her estate, Gatcombe Park. But! Anne was one of the last Windsor royals to shut down her public schedule. She was still doing events on March 16th/17th. Hm.

Colton Underwood’s Quote About Tayshia Adams’ Hometown Date Is Awkward

If you watched his season of The Bachelor, you’re going to want to check out Colton Underwood’s quote about Tayshia Adams’ hometown date. Specifically, Underwood says producers pressured him into asking Adams’ father for her hand in marriage when he knew she wasn’t the one for him. "With Tayshia [Adams] — I’m probably going to get in trouble for saying this, but whatever — at first, I didn’t ask, because I valued her being engaged before and I didn’t want to do that to her," he told the Los Angeles Times in a March 31 interview. "I didn’t ask when I sat down with her father. And at the very end, [producers] were like, ‘You have to. You need to pull him again.’ By that time, it’s 12, 1 in the morning and I’m like, ‘OK, can we wrap this up?’ It’s like ‘Well, you know how to wrap this up. Go have that conversation.’"

He says the producers even pressured him into asking his now-girlfriend Cassie Randolph’s father for her hand in marriage when he knew it wasn’t the right time. "I wasn’t going to ask because I wanted it to be a one-time thing," he explained. "But I think I got prompted [by producers] three or four or five times, being like, ‘Tonight’s a big night. Don’t you have a question you want to ask?’"

In general, Underwood believes the producers took things too far and wound up jeopardizing his future with Randolph. "There were lines crossed in my relationship with Cassie that I found out about after the show. There were things that they said and did that compromised my relationship with her," he shared. "Now, it makes so much sense that she decided to leave. If you’re gonna make a show, at least give me a fair shot to end up with the girl that I’m falling in love with. Your job as a show is to make us come together. I understand we did [come together] at the end, but I had to take it into my own hands and be extreme with it."

Underwood is finally able to spill all of this tea now because his contract, which included an NDA, just ended. That being said, his new book The First Time was written before his contract ended and still includes plenty of behind-the-scenes tidbits. "I’m actually out of contract now, finally," he said. "I wasn’t when I was writing the book, obviously. I wanted to follow all the rules, business-wise, and be professional. That was the hardest part for me, and I think that’s where my strongest fallout with them came. I was trying to always be professional, and I felt like at times I didn’t get that in return. I was told to be a good little boy and keep my mouth shut and it’s like, ‘come on, guys, treat me like an adult.’"

Here’s to hoping he continues living his truth.

Skateboarder Jeff Grosso Dies at 51: 'Skateboarding Was Lucky to Have Him as an Ambassador'

Strange days indeed…

A post shared by Jeff Grosso (@grossosucks) on

Continued the company, “Jeff Grosso is the epitome of skateboarding. We mourn the loss of our dear friend and our thoughts are with his family during this time.”

Among the others to pay tribute was fellow skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, who wrote on Instagram, “It is with great sadness that I share with you the passing of Jeff Grosso. He was a true skateboarder at his core, and a great wealth of entertainment, insight and valuable philosophy to a younger generation. I was lucky enough to skate with him over the last four decades and occasionally featured on his @vans ‘Love Letters’ series.”

The 51-year-old continued, “One of the last times we spoke, we talked about how ridiculous it is that we still get to do this for a living and that anyone even cares what we do or think in terms of skateboarding at our age. I believe Jeff is a big reason that anyone truly cares, and skateboarding was lucky to have him as an ambassador and gatekeeper to its history.”

Hawk also called Grosso a “great father,” ending his post with, “Thank you Jeff, words cannot describe how much we will miss you. I feel like we’re living in the upside down.”

Alongside his heartfelt tribute, Hawk shared clips of Grosso that he said “exemplify Jeff’s genuine love of skateboarding and his renegade attitude.”

The former athlete had previously opened up about past drug abuse, including revealing to Transworld Skateboarding in 2017 that he overdosed on heroin three separate times.

Grosso is survived by his son Oliver, 8, according to the Daily News. He had just shared a video of himself dancing with Oliver on Tuesday.

Meghan & Harry’s U.S. Security Details Are Not What Trump Expected

Ever since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their decision to step back from their senior royal roles and split their time between the U.K. and North America, speculation about how they’d handle their security began to swirl. On their website, Harry and Meghan shared how the safety of their son, Archie, will continue to be their number one priority during this new chapter of their lives. So on Sunday, March 29, when the couple caught wind of what Donald Trump had to say about their plans, Meghan and Harry cleared things up real quick. Meghan and Harry’s U.S. security details are not what Trump expected.

Ahead of their 12-month transition period which began on April 1, Meghan, Harry, and Archie reportedly moved from Canada, where they had been living, to Los Angeles. After news of their current location made headlines, Trump took to Twitter to share his thoughts.

"I am a great friend and admirer of the Queen & the United Kingdom," Trump tweeted on Sunday. "It was reported that Harry and Meghan, who left the Kingdom, would reside permanently in Canada. Now they have left Canada for the U.S. however, the U.S. will not pay for their security protection. They must pay!"

But Trump seems to be confused, because the Sussexes had reportedly already worked out their security plans — none of which included asking the U.S. government to help supply it.

According to royal reporter Omid Scobie, a spokesperson for Meghan and Harry addressed the claims, explaining: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have no plans to ask the U.S. government for security resources. Privately funded security arrangements have been made."

Additional details regarding Meghan and Harry’s plans for security were detailed on The Sussexes’ website:

During their time as senior royals living in Canada, Meghan and Harry’s security was provided by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, but it was said those plans would change starting April 1.

To maintain some sort of privacy, all of the details of Meghan and Harry’s new life — including their exact security arrangements — haven’t been revealed, but it’s no doubt Meghan and Harry have a strong plan in place to protect them and their son. And they don’t need Trump’s help to make it happen.

Prince Charles Gave Details About His Experience with Coronavirus

Prince Charles used his first appearance since his coronavirus diagnosis to share his experience with COVID-19 and the resulting isolation. 

In a PSA video shared by Clarence House's social media accounts, the Prince of Wales discussed the pandemic and its effects on older members of the community, speaking as a patron of Age U.K., a charity which supports older people.

"Having recently gone through the process of contracting this coronavirus – luckily with relatively mild symptoms – I now find myself on the other side of the illness, but still in no less a state of social distance and general isolation," he said. "As we are all learning, this is a strange, frustrating and often distressing experience when the presence of family and friends is no longer possible and the normal structures of life are suddenly removed."

"At such an unprecedented and anxious time in all our lives, my wife and I are thinking particularly of all those who have lost their loved ones in such very difficult and abnormal circumstances, and of those having to endure sickness, isolation and loneliness," he said in his video. 

Earlier this week, it was reported Prince Charles is out of isolation a week after news broke about his diagnosis, and is in good health. The video was presumably filmed at Charles's Birkhall home on the Queen's Balmoral estate. 

Prince Charles was the first member of the British royal family reported to have tested positive for coronavirus. In addition to his PSA, other royal family members have stepped in to play their part in helping members of the public respond to the crisis. Last month, Prince William and Kate Middleton paid a surprise visit to healthcare staff on the frontlines, while Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, shared a message to those affected by domestic violence during the pandemic. Queen Elizabeth is also set to make a rare speech about the coronavirus in coming weeks.

Chrissy Teigen’s Response To A Fan Who Thought She & John Legend Split Was Hilarious

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples, and for good reason. Fans love their outspoken personalities, sense of humor, and, of course, their adorable family. Teigen and Legend are known to interact hilariously on social media, which is just another bonus for stans of their relationship. Chrissy Teigen’s comment about breaking up with John Legend after self-quarantine is over will make you laugh out loud.

Teigen and Legend have been making the most of social distancing at home with their son, Miles, and daughter, Luna, amid the ongoing coronavirus crisis. Since mid-March, the famous fam has been living it up in their house, cooking and baking some delicious dishes, singing and dancing together, and documenting many of the moments on Instagram.

On Sunday, March 29, Teigen and Legend went all out with a make believe wedding for Luna’s stuffed lamb and bunny. Teigen officiated the nuptials, while Legend provided the entertainment, singing a cover of Selena Gomez’s "Hands to Myself."

Fans were so impressed with the fake ceremony that pictures and videos began to make the rounds on Instagram. But, it was Popsugar’s caption that that caught the attention of a fan who thought it was a breakup announcement.

"Popsugar, don’t you EVER DARE AGAIN post a photo of John and Chrissy and write ‘can’t believe we’re typing this…’ I THOUGHT THEY WERE BREAKING UP. MY HEART LEPT OUT OF MY CHEST," the commenter wrote. "I CANNOT HANDLE THAT ANXIETY RIGHT NOW."

The comment caught Teigen’s attention, and she had the best response, writing, "Oh we are also def breaking up after we can leave the house."

No one knows exactly what the future holds for Teigen and Legend, but it’s safe to say they’ve got a lot more hilarious, headline-making moments to share with the world.

If you think you’re showing symptoms of coronavirus, which include fever, shortness of breath, and cough, call your doctor before going to get tested. If you’re anxious about the virus’s spread in your community, visit the CDC for up-to-date information and resources, or seek out mental health support.
