Hillary Clinton is still firmly in Bill Clinton’s corner more than two decades after his sex scandal with Monica Lewinsky … with HC now saying he didn’t abuse his power over her. The former Secretary of State and two-time presidential…
Kate Middleton has been married to Prince William for over seven years, and the union has been relatively scandal-free throughout.
Sure, there were allegations of William cheating on Kate in 2017, but by royal marriage standards, these two have given the UK gossip rags very little to get excited about in the years since they tied the knot.
If asked to choose just one adjective to describe Will and Kate’s relationship, one might be inclined to go with dull — and that’s just how Buckingham Palace likes it.
These days, when there’s a new report on Will and Kate, it’s usually about their children or her fashion sense.
The whole thing almost feels perfunctory, as though the press is concerned that if they ignored the boringly stable couple altogether, it would confirm the public’s worst suspicions about tabloid journalism.
Prior to getting married, however, Will and Kate were a subject of international fascination.
Middleton was “Waity Katie,” forced to suffer the public humiliation of biding her time while Will took years to decide if she was worthy of a proposal.
At one point — possibly because of Kate’s frustration with this lengthy process — the couple even called it quits.
This was in March of 2007.
The official, Palace-approved narrative is that Kate spent that time traveling, spending time with her family, and engaging in a bit of much-needed soul-searching.
She even spoke about the experience shortly after getting engaged to Prince William in 2010.
“I think I at the time wasn’t very happy about it, but actually it made me a stronger person,” Kate said at the time.
“You find out things about yourself that maybe you hadn’t realized,” she added.
“Or I think you can get quite consumed by a relationship when you’re younger. I really valued that time for me as well although I didn’t think it at the time, looking back on it.”
The statement was Will and Kate in a nutshell — elegant, poised and entirely free of impropriety.
But the actual story of Will and Kate’s hiatus is considerably more interesting.
And one aspect that’s rarely discussed these days is the fact that both parties dated other people.
Will briefly pursued Isabella Calthorpe — the sister of Prince Harry’s ex, Crssida Bonas — but insiders say nothing much came of the relationship.
Kate’s fling, on the other hand, was far more consequential.
The Duchess of Cambridge became romantically involved with a man named Henry Ropner, who was an Eton classmate of William’s.
And sources claimed the relationship advanced rather quickly.
“Henry is delighted to be there for Kate now that she’s split from William,” an insider told The Daily Mail at the time.
“They’ve been meeting up and enjoying themselves.”
Interestingly, Ropner’s ties to Will go beyond the fact that they attended school together.
Will had previously dated an ex of Ropner’s named Jecca Craig just weeks after she parted ways with Henry.
So was Ropner dating Kate out of a desire for revenge?
We may never know, but it’s worth noting that Will reportedly flew into a rage after seeing photos of his ex and his former classmate together.
Just weeks after those pics went public, Will and Kate reconciled, sparking rumors that it was Will’s jealousy that drew them back together.
In July of 2011, Ropner married Natasha Sinclair with the Duke and Duchess in attendance.
So it seems that these days all is well among the members of this short-lived love triangle.
But still, the whole situation serves as a reminder that even a couple as posh and put-together as Will and Kate is not above hiding a skeleton or two in their closet.
A shot has been fired by Kourtney Kardashian.
An explosive, personal, unexpected shot against her mother, that is.
In the clip featured here from Sunday's episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe tries to play mediator between Kris Jenner and her oldest daughter.
It's not really clear what has brought these three family members into the living room and what has caused them to arrive at the topic at hand…
… but the conversation immediately turned to men, romances and extramarital affairs!
"For some reason, you do not give mom the benefit of the doubt, ever, from your childhood and it's really unfair," Khloe randomly says, pulling out the name of Kris' long-ago lover and adding:
"You only remember with Todd, or this or that."
(Todd, you may or may not recall, would be Todd Waterman, a man with whom Jenner has admitted sleeping in 1989 while married to Robert Kardashian Sr.)
"I don't sit there and dwell about Todd," says a shocked Kourtney, priort o Kris telling her that she has "her own Todd right now."
Ouch, Kourtney replies. Also: WTH?!?
"No, I actually don't. I'm actually not married and I'm not having an affair," Kourtney claps back, presumably talking about then-boyfriend Younes Bendjima based on the timeline of when this episode was likely filmed.
"You can't compare one to the other, it's absolutely not true," she adds.
The sneak peek concludes with Khloe telling her sister:
"Sometimes our memories get a little warped by our age, but don't be so hard on your mom."
Jenner opened up about cheating on Kardashian Sr. in her 2011 memoir, Kris Jenner…And All Things Kardashian.
In 1989, she had an affair Waterman, an elicit act that prompted the divorce.
In an interview with Fox News Channel’s OBJECTified this summer, Kris confessed the affair was “nothing I’m proud of.”
“When I look back on it now, probably one of my biggest regrets in my life is that that marriage fell apart,” she said on this program.
Check out this clip to see her discuss it once again.

Note to Jay-Z:
You can have Becky with the Good Hair.
Beyonce is gonna go ahead and get driven to the hole by LeBron with the Great Court Vision, thank you very much!
Is LeBron mimicking the placement of his hands when he stood in front of a naked Beyonce back in the day? Hmmm….
Indeed, according to a rapper named Da Real Lambo, who formerly dated LeBron James’ mother, Gloria, the world’s best basketball player carried on an affair with the world’s most beloved pop star.
And he’s prepared to spill ALL the shocking tea in an upcoming memoir!
In a mostly capitalized Instagram post this week, Lambo said straight up that James had been nailing both jump shots and Beyonce at some point in the semi-recent past.
“MY BOOK WILL BE GIVING THE WORLD THE TRUTH ABOUT WHY @beyonce WASN’T INVITED TO @kingjames WEDDING, AND ALSO WHY #savannajames Wasn’t invited to @beyonce wedding,” wrote Lambo, referencing LeBron’s wife and addimg:
“THE MISTRESS WILL BE EXPOSED IN MY BOOK, MAYBE ITS A CUZING OF #jayz or @beyonce, U HAVE TO READ MY BOOK TO KNOW.”
Neither James nor Beyonce have responded to these unconfirmed allegations.
Probably because they came from soneone named Da Real Lambo.
As you might expect, Lambo has received a lot of pushback since making this accusation.
James, after all, has been married to Savannah Brinson since 2013. She’s his high school sweetheart. They have three kids together.
There’s been nary a sniff of any scandal involving LeBron’s love life since he entered the NBA in 2003.
But Lambo isn’t backing down from his claims, following up his original post with one that reads:
WHEN GOD IS WITH U WHO CAN BE AGAINST U, I DONT FEAR NONE OF U DEVILS.
MY DAUGHTER WILL BE GOING ON TALK SHOWS WITH ME TO TELL HOW @kingjames AND HIS CHEATING MOMA DID ME AND MY DAUGHTER.
We don’t know what Lambo is talking about here.
Beyonce, of course, has been through a cheating scandal with Jay-Z.
The artist has come right out and talked about his extramarital affair, telling David Letterman in April:
“I have a beautiful wife who’s understanding and [knows] I’m not the worst of what I’ve done…
“We did the hard work of going to therapy and you know, we love each other, right?”
This really does appear to be the case; or else why would Beyonce have stayed with Jay-Z after he strayed.
As for talk that James dunked on Beyonce on the sexual sense, we have pretty strong doubts.
Da Real Lambo appears to have an axe to grind with the James family due to apparently being cheated on by LeBron’s mother, making him an unreliable source in our opinion.
But this is still an intriguing topic to discuss and ponder, isn’t it?
With all this chatter about where James will go in free agency, whoever would have thought that the real question is whether or not he went downtown with Beyonce?
Not us. We never would have thought this.

Brittany Zamora is 27 years old. The teacher from Arizona taught sixth grade.
She is no longer a teacher, and not likely to be a teacher ever again.
Not after allegedly engaging in multiple sex acts with a 13-year-old student, some of which took place within a classroom.
Sexual predators exist in all walks of life, unfortunately, but few have the degree of access to minors that a teacher does.
Brittany Zamora, seen above looking very unhappy in her mugshot, was arrested last week for a series of alleged sexual encounters with a 13-year-old student.
According to the boy’s statement to police, it all started when Zamora began flirting with him in a classroom chat.
Over time, during which one assumes that she groomed the boy to feel more comfortable with her inappropriate overtures, she sent him nude photos of herself.
From there, things escalated.
Between February 1st and March 1st of this year, this extremely inappropriate relationship between a 27-year-old teacher and her 13-year-old student became disturbingly physical.
According to the Arizona Republic, Zamora and the unnamed student had sex on three occasions during that time.
Zamora also reportedly performed oral sex on the student in her car … and in a classroom.
During this, she sent messages that have since been preserved, with statements like:
“I [want to have sex with you] baby! I want you every day with no time limit.”
She also wrote: “If I could quit my job and (have sex with) you all day long, I would.”
This pattern of statutory rape was discovered by the student’s parents, who had installed an app on his phone so that they could spy upon his activities. (That tech is abhorrent and often used for the worst reasons, but this time, it was helpful)
From there, parents contacted the principal.
Hours later, Zamora was arrested. This all took place last Wednesday.
There is a twist to this story, however.
Because there was someone else who knew about this illicit and illegal relationship for some — unknown — period of time before the arrest.
Brittany Zamora’s husband, Daniel Zamora, whom she had known since she was 15 — not much older than her victim.
Daniel reportedly called the boy’s parents multiple times and pleaded with them to not go to police with the report of Zamora’s actions.
Bizarrely, Daniel allegedly made an offer to the boy’s father that the two men could resolve the situation through a fight.
Statutory rape cannot be resolved through, um, trial by combat or whatever it was that Mr. Zamora, clearly desperate to spare his wife from prison, was envisioning.
Some who have read the story have responded with shock and anger that Zamora’s husband was apparently aware of the affair, and some asked how long he had known.
The answer is unclear, but many assume that Brittany Zamora told her husband when she realized that she was caught. Better to hear it from her … we guess?
It is refreshing, at least, to see people respond with anger to news of this twisted crime instead of with jokes or expressions of envy.
Statutory rape is statutory rape, folks.
Zamora made an appearance in court on Friday. She’s charged with multiple counts of sexual contact with a minor, child molestation, and transmitting obscene material.
Another student admitted to having witnessed the sexual relationship between teacher and student, and also admitted that Zamora had sent him an illicit photo, too.
Some have observed that they believe that these illegal relationships in which teachers prey upon their students are happening more frequently.
It may be, however, that since modern relationships so often happen through technology, these crimes have been happening for generations, and being caught more often now because they leave an electronic trail.
The world can be a frightening place.
