Prince William & Duchess Kate are on vacation again, poor sausages


Duchess Kate is feeling better these days. I would imagine she’s still a bit pukey, but overall, she seems to be feeling much better since she entered the second trimester. Thus, she finally got back to work last week, making three appearances over the course of three days. It was a stunning return to work (“work”) since she had been gone from public view since August. And now that she got some galas under her belt, it’s time for another vacation! YAY! Now we know she’s really feeling better!

Have Kate Middleton and Prince William gone away on a babymoon? According to The Sun, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have taken a vacation (with Prince George!) to Balmoral Palace this week and are relaxing before the arrival of their second child early next year.

The family of three took a flight from Heathrow Airport on Tuesday into Aberdeen, the airport closest to the Scotland estate. And while Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip are currently not in town, a full staff is on hand to cater to William, Kate and little George’s every want and need.

The trip is good news for the expectant royal, who had been previously suffering from severe morning sickness. Just last week, the brunette beauty made her first public appearance since announcing that she was pregnant with baby No. 2.

[From E! News]

I love the feeling of “our long international nightmare is over, she’s finally well enough to go on vacation!” So, should we just give William and Kate this vacation? I mean, they “went without” a real vacation this summer, choosing instead to simply not work for a few months and spend time overseeing some of the many (unnecessary) renovations on Anmer Hall. That wasn’t a “real” vacation, right? So… have they earned this? HA!

Oh, and I got the chance to read the full Life & Style cover story this week – I previewed the piece yesterday. There are some other details and the whole piece is very “woe is Kate, the Queen is such a big meanie.” Which would have been a better angle if not for the vacation, you know? If she’s well enough to travel to Scotland for a vacation, she’s well enough to work. Apparently, Kate still felt very ill when she met the president of Singapore and she almost barfed on him. Kate “was terrified she would be sick in front of all of the cameras” and the royal aides were prepared to usher her out of the room at a moment’s notice in case she needed the use of The Royal Barftorium.

L&S actually wrote this perfect sentence: “Before the queen dragged her back to the palace, Kate was being taken care of at her parents’ cozy $7.4 million mansion.” A source says: “Kate would have loved to have stayed in her sickbed, but Queen Elizabeth decided the time had come for her to take her place on the world stage.” As for Kate’s Marilyn Moments, the Queen “has long bullied” Kate over her clothing choices and the Queen believes Kate should simply buy longer dresses and sew weights into the hems. Makes sense to me?

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 5 Recap: One Wrong Turn

When does some simple corn maze fun turn into an all-out disaster?

As evidenced by events on The Vampire Diaries Season 6 Episode 5… when Ivy gets loose in Mystic Falls, partially eats some guy to death, that guy stumbles in front of Tyler’s truck, and Tyler subsequently plows through the Homecoming party.

OUCH! Times, like 79.

Staked Alaric

The corn massacre left many developments in its wake. To wit:

The dude Tyler hit was pretty much a goner. That meant Tyler’s werewolf curse would be triggered.

But Liv stepped in and actually suffocated the guy to death, meaning she technically ended his life, doing Tyler a serious solid. He thanked her profusely and said he’d live up to the favor.

Liam showed off his skills, saving many lives due to some serious medical skills, turning Elena on in the process and acting like a “hero” on her eyes. She kissed him as a result.

Jo and Alaric also saved some lives, prompting the former to pour out her feelings to the latter after all was said and done and no one died. But Alaric isn’t in a place where he can date, so he compelled her to forget all she felt…

… except she kissed him anyway, seemingly oblivious to the compulsion.

Ivy, meanwhile, ended up getting apprehended by Tripp, with Caroline looking on. Uh-oh!

Finally, in 1994: Bonnie realized that Kai needed her alive because the spell that locked him on May 10 was a Bennett spell. So only a Bennett witch could do it. Bonnie killed Kai when she realized they didn’t need him…

… except he came back to life because of the curse/spell. He’s destined to relive May 10,1994 over and over and over again.

As he fought with Bonnie and Damon, Bonnie tossed Damon the Ascendent and said some magic words and sent him back to present day Mystic Falls. (Killing herself in the process?)

We ended the hour with Stefan and Damon reuniting via a tear-filled hug that left our living room very, very, very dusty.

What did everyone else think of the episode? Are you glad Damon is back in Mystic Falls? Do you think we’ve seen the last of Bonnie? And what are your thoughts on Bonnie?

True Detective Season 2: New Roles Cast?

Vince Vaughn is in as a career criminal trying to go legitimate.

Colin Farrell is on board as a detective with a shady past.

Taylor Kitsch has confirmed that’ll be playing some role and rumors continue to circulate that Rachel McAdams will join the cast as a colleague of Farrell’s.

So, who else may be taking part in True Detective Season 2?

4 actors

According to Deadline, four new names/faces have surfaced as strong contenders for the next edition of this critically-acclaimed drama.

The new report states that Michael Irby will play Elvis, McAdams’ character’s partner.

Leven Rambin will play a woman with a checkered history.

Kelly Reilly will play “the self-possessed Morgan,” whatever that means.

And Abigail Spencer will play the survivor of a sexual assault.

HBO is yet to confirm any of these names. The network, in fact, has only announced that Vaughn and Farrell will be anchoring the True Detective Season 2 cast.

It has also said that the season will center on three cops and a criminal, all of whom must react to some kind of conspiracy that takes place in the aftermath of a murder.

Filming will soon be underway, with new episodes scheduled to premiere in the spring of 2015. So it’s safe to assume the network has to make some follow-up announcements one of these days.

As for our True Detective Season 2 casting suggestions…

The Kardashians

Stop or their mom will shoot… you with a camera she borrowed from E! for some reality show footage.

June Shannon Admits to "Spending Time" With Mark McDaniels, According to New Report

Last week, the world learned that Here Comes Honey Boo Boo star June Shannon is dating a convicted child molester by the name of Mark McDaniel. 

Shannon claimed she’s cut ties with McDaniel at the time of his arrest 10 years ago. Initially, Shannon’s family corroborated her story.

  • June Shannon Mug Shot
  • Mark McDaniel Mug Shot

Shortly after the scandal broke, however, the already shocking story took an even more appalling turn as June’s daughter Anna Shannon revealed that she was McDaniel’s victim and stated that she no longer believes her mother’s story. 

Now after a week of denials and a mountain of evidence, June has reportedly confessed that she has been spending time with the man who molested her daughter, but insists she only did so because she “feels bad” for McDaniel:

Anonymous sources claim that following the release of photos showing McDaniel in the company of Shannon’s youngest daughter, Alana, “Mama June” finally admitted to contacting McDaniel and allowing him into her home.

“June insists that Mark only wanted to apologize for what happened with Anna,” an insider tells Radar Online. “She felt bad for Mark and wanted to help him get back on his feet.”

“Alana did spend time with June and Mark, but she insists he was never alone with her.”

Given that McDaniel served ten years in prison for sexually assaulting one of her daughters, and June initially lied about being in contact with him, her justification seems unlikely to win her much sympathy. 

Reality TV Family

This family is way more famous than you are. It’s just unclear why, exactly.

Kylie Jenner’s Lips: More Plump Than Ever in New Selfies!!

Kylie Jenner is just trolling the haters, critics and pundits at this point.

Following a string of speculative reports – and photos of Kylie Jenner’s lips – suggesting that the 17-year-old may have had injections, she’s taken to Instagram to …

… showcase another couple of selfies starring her VERY plump pout!

  • Kylie Jenner: LIP Service!
  • Kylie Jenner Pouts Lips

“Kylizzle X,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star captioned it.

Sporting trendy black sunglasses, a leather jacket and a sleeveless sweater, she shows us just how hard she loves selfies (and people talking about those lips).

Earlier this week, Kylie said she was sooo bored by the rumors.

“How long are we gonna talk about this lip thing lmao,” the E! star asked, feigning disinterest. “Let’s get our lives together guys and talk about some important s–t.”

“Just talk about something new at least. I’m bored.”

Sure you are, Kylie. Kim Kardashian, meanwhile, defended her sister‘s makeup expertise in a beauty blog video published the same day as Kylie’s tweets.

“She draws her lip [traces the outer ledge] and it looks amazing,” Kim said. “She only wears a lip liner, and then she fills it in. She doesn’t wear a lipstick or a gloss.”

She added that her youngest sister is “really good at makeup.”

Kylie Jenner Then and Now

Kylie Jenner now and just a few years ago. She looks a tad different.

What the reality star is truly GREAT at is posing selfies though.

Kylie also flipped off haters with Bruce Jenner in another photo this week, showing us that the two were bonding over something they have in common lately.

Bruce can certainly give his youngest child some advice in that arena, as he might be the most scrutinized member of the famous family.

Considering who his kids and stepkids are? That says a lot.

Kim Kardashian is still ‘waist training’ with a fancy corset: stupid or fine?

I'm really obsessed with waist training! Thank you @premadonna87 for my new waist shapers! #whatsawaist

A photo posted by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

I could have sworn that I had already written about this mess, and as it turns out, I DID. Back in August, Kim Kardashian posted a “waist training” selfie featuring a fancy girdle, and here we go again. Kim posted the above photo yesterday. Hey, at least she’s not trying to convince us that she’s lost seven pounds like last time. Oh, and I guess this girdle is new? The girdle/corset from August was a What’s a Waist corset, retailing for $143. This new corset is… oh, it’s the same brand. But I guess this one is new.

I’ve heard of this before, obviously. Jessica Alba is also a fan of “waist training” and she’s said in the past that she wore a corset for months after she gave birth both times. I guess it’s a popular thing to do with moms, although Khloe Kardashian also “waist trains.” Critics insist that “waist training” is meaningless and your body will just return to its natural shape regardless of the time spent wearing a corset. Some critics even say it’s flat-out dangerous.

Meanwhile, this is my new favorite Kimye story:

He’s reportedly worth $130m. But Kanye West wasn’t in the mood to splurge for wife Kim Kardashian’s 34th birthday, which fell on October 21. According to Us Weekly, the 37-year-old rapper let the E! star choose whatever she wanted at low-priced clothing store The Gap. And he gave her two hours to do so.

‘He was like, “What do I get the girl that has so much?”‘ Kim told the weekly during her birthday party held at TAO in Las Vegas on Friday. The daughter of Kris Jenner added, ‘We bought five cream sweaters.’

[From The Daily Mail]

It sounds like something Gwyneth Paltrow would do. “Slum it” at The Gap for a peasant-y experience for one’s birthday! How quaint. How charming. Soon all of the upper-crust mothers will be doing the same thing. Hilariously, Kanye allegedly gave Kim a $100 maximum too. Actually, I bet they had a lot of fun doing that. Some of those sweaters and blouses at The Gap are decent.

Bethenny Frankel Promotes Skinny Cocktails Book with REALLY Skinny Photo

Bethenny Frankel may be taking this whole Skinnygirl thing a bit too seriously.

The reality star, who is headed back to The Real Housewives of New York City, made headlines this week when she posed for a Twitter photo in promotion of her new Skinnygirl Cocktails book.

“Today my newest book #SkinnygirlCocktails is available wherever books are sold!! Go pick up yours today,” she wrote as a caption to the following photo.

Tiny Bethenny Frankel

But followers weren’t focused on the book in Bethenny’s hands.

Rather, they couldn’t stop staring at the lack of bulk around her wait.

One follower told Frankel to “eat something” and questioned if she was “having a nervous breakdown.”

This prompted the 43-year-old to respond to the criticism of the image on the Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show earlier today.

“The way that my body was, it made me look like I was a skeleton and it became this whole Internet thing yesterday, that I’m anorexic and all this crazy stuff,” Bethenny said.

Will she be more careful in the future regarding what kind of photos she publishes online? Maybe, but…

“If I start filtering myself and being so careful walking on eggshells with everything I say or post, I won’t even be me or be on this radio show or on that television show, or as successful as I am,” she said. “So this is who I am, and sometimes you make mistakes!”

Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan looks healthier these days than she used to at the height of her … whatever that phase was.

Frankel made similar waves in July when she ran a picture on Instagram of herself in her four-year old daughter’s pajamas.

For understandable reasons, many were concerned how an adult could actually pull off such a feat.

“I didn’t think people were going to start being anorexic because I put my daughter’s clothes on,” she said at the time. “I just thought it was a ridiculous joke. I peed in a champagne bucket at my own wedding. The bar is very low, so why is that such a big deal?”

Kylie Jenner Compares Lips With Khloe Kardashian, Flips Off Haters With Bruce Jenner

As you might already know, Kylie Jenner is obsessed with Instagram. So when there’s some drama in her life (which is always) she addresses it by sharing pics with her millions of followers.

This week she tackled two rumors with a pair of seemingly run-of-the mill family photos:

  • Khloe and Kylie Photo
  • Kylie and Bruce Jenner: Eff Off!

The biggest Kylie kontroversy of the moment involves her rapidly changing face.

That may be why on the same day that Kylie addressed lip injection rumors on Twitter, she posted the lip-centric pic of her  and Khloe on the left.

Of course, despite her last name, Kylie is a Kardashian at heart, so naturally she’s involved in more than one controversy at the moment.

The other major family scandal of recent weeks also involves surgical rumors.

Chatter about the possibility of a Bruce Jenner sex change has been around for months, but the rumor mill has been going harder than ever this week after Bruce was spotted wearing nail polish on a golf outing.

Perhaps that’s why Kylie and Bruce decided to show their unpainted middle fingers to the haters.

If Kylie was trying to send a message with these pics then she might be a PR genius. Of course, it’s possible that we’re reading way too much into her latest posts. 

Maybe the girl just really, really loves Instagram.


Kendall and Kylie doing what they do best. What these girls have done before camera phones?

11 Celebrities (Probably) Expecting a Baby in 2015

We’re not doctors here at The Hollywood Gossip.

Are Kylie Jenner’s lips real… or the result of some plastic surgery? We don’t know for sure.

Was Tori Spelling hospitalized last week due to a panic attack… or as a headline-generating move to garner ratings for her nauseating reality show? We can’t say for certain (even though she totally faked it.)

Are the following famous females expecting a baby in 2015? Don’t bet your home on it.

However, based on our research (i.e. they’re pregnancy announcements), our investigative resources (i.e. a calendar) and a few very basic math skills, it’s safe to assume the Palace will have major news to break in a few months, while Kim Kardashian will have another relative to pay an assistant to Tweet about.

From royalty to reality to pure beauty, here’s a look at various celebrities babies who will enter the world in early 2015:

Kate Middleton

Another royal baby is on the way! Kate Middleton and Prince William will welcome it into the world in April 2015.

Nikki Ferrell-Juan Pablo Galavis Breakup: Who Dumped Who, and Why?

The (not at all) stunning and abrupt breakup of Juan Pablo Galavis and girlfriend Nikki Ferrell absolutely floored fans of The Bachelor and Couples Therapy.

We know. We’re shocked … that it took almost a whole year.

Why did Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell break up, though? Who did the dumping and for what reason? We’ll give you one guess, because it’s pretty obvious …

Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo Galavis on Couples Therapy

Nikki kicked Juan to the curb at long, LONG last. Ess okay.

Insiders say there had been trouble in paradise for some time (ya think?) but their rift intensified after The Bachelor stars appeared on VH1’s Couples Therapy.

If you watch Couples Therapy online, it’s clear that therapy didn’t take for the two, especially Nikki, who reached a point where she couldn’t take it anymore.

In a sense, maybe the show did work, just not as planned.

“Juan and Nikki have been fighting,” an insider says, and the 27-year-old Ferrell was the one who pulled the plug the source adds, noting: “It was not mutual.”

Another source says the two just wanted different things.

“Everything Nikki wanted, he didn’t,” the source notes.

“She wanted to settle down and he didn’t.”

This, evidently, was not as obvious to Nikki as it was to EVERY TV VIEWER AND CELEBRITY NEWS READER IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

Juan Pablo and Nikki Ferrell Kiss

Juan Pablo Galavis and Nikki Ferrell kiss in a cute photo.

“They were not seeing eye to eye on anything,” the insider claims. “Juan wanted Nikki in Miami. Nikki didn’t want to leave her family, friends, or job.”

“Meanwhile, Juan wouldn’t even consider going to Kansas.”

“Nikki felt like she was doing all the work in the relationship, and that Juan expected her to join his life … she couldn’t get him to compromise at all.”

The same source adds that the notorious douchebag “stopped putting any effort in the relationship” after seeking Dr. Jenn Berman’s help on Couples Therapy.

“I don’t think he ever said ‘I love you’ to her,” the insider says, which had been an issue from the start, but ultimately caused Ferrell to break down.

“He didn’t put Nikki’s priorities first and she had enough.”

On the show(s), Galavis routinely played the culture/language barrier card, saying Ferrell had a “word issue” because “she wants to hear, ‘I love you.'”

He added, “If I say it, I mean it.”

Guess he didn’t.

Juan Pablo and Clare Crawley

Juan Pablo and Clare Crawley in their final face to face moment ever. It was not pretty.

You didn’t need The Bachelor spoilers to give this breakup away ahead of time, or to tell you that Chris Soules has the bar set very, very low for him in 2015.

Seriously. He can’t possibly be worse.
