Royal Wedding Dress Debate: Who Wore It Better?

On Saturday afternoon, it finally happened.

As documented in detail, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry got married in London.

The former Suits actress and the son of Princess Diana said “I Do” in front of hundreds of guests in attendance at St. George’s, not to mention thousands lining the street outside and millions watching at home.

But we’re not here right now to talk about those two romantic words.

We’re here to discuss four equally famous words:

Who. Wore. It. Best.

The subjects in this case are the two Royal Brides from the past decade, Kate Middleton and Mrs. Markle.

The former, of course, tied the knot with Prince William back in 2011 in an event whose anticipation we never thought could be topped until today.

At the time, the Duchess of Cambridge wore a lovely lace Alexander McQueen gown designed by Sarah Burton, the fashion house’s creative director.

The now-legendary gown featured long lace sleeves, a v-neckline and an extremely long train.

Kate’s dress was also composed of French Chantilly lace and English Cluny lace throughout the bodice, skirt and underskirt.

Here. Take a look below in order to refresh your memory:

Markle, meanwhile, went with Givenchy.

She donned an ensemble by the fashion house’s creative director Clare Waight Keller.

It featured a boat neckline bodice, long sleeves and a sheer cascading veil adorned with lace trim.

The delicate veil was actually made from silk tulle and it included a trim of hand-embroidered flowers in silk threads and organza.

Check it out here:

Both women looked gorgeous. Stunning. Beautiful in every way possible.

About this there can be no debate.

But let’s be honest now: While the world is standing up and applauding Meghan and Harry on their big day and wishing them the very best of luck, they’re also engaged in a different kind of debate.

It’s the kind summed up by the quartet of words we jotted down above:

Who wore her Royal Wedding Dress best, Middleton or Markle?

It’s worth noting that Middleton’s dress grew to be so iconic and so memorable that H&M designed a similar version that retails for the affordable price of $ 299.

Will Markle’s gown create such demand?

Will designers be lining up to essentially copy it and offer it at a discount to the masses?

It’s far too early to say.

However, this much we can state with certainty:

Prince William and Prince Harry are both very lucky men. They married stunning women with terrific fashion taste.

Everyone here is a winner in the broad sense of the word… but only one of these brides can be a winner in the specific sense of this post.

So we ask again: Which Royal Wedding Dress do you like best?


Jennifer Aniston to Justin Theroux: You Better Not Be Banging Selena Gomez!

It’s been three months since the world learned Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux have separated, and while both parties claim the split was amicable, their behavior during that time tells a different story.

Despite frequent rumors that Aniston is back together with Brad Pitt, there’s been no definitive indication that either party has moved on – and that might be by design.

Justin, Jen, Selena

Neither Jen nor Justin has come out and confirmed that they’re dating someone new, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re both still single.

In fact, Jen’s not the only one who’s been the subject of persistent rumors regarding an alleged rebound fling with an A-lister.

For several weeks now, rumors that Justin is dating Selena Gomez have been circulating on social media.

The whole thing seems very far-fetched, especially considering the fact that Justin is 21 years Selena’s senior.

But according to Hollywood Life, Jen has been considering the possibility that there’s some truth to these reports.

And she’s very, very unhappy about it:

“Jennifer is upset over the dating rumors swirling around her ex and Selena,” claims a source close to the actress.

“It hurts Jen to think that Justin would move on already,” the insider adds.

“To think of him with anyone else, especially someone so young and that Jen has a personal relationship with like Selena, is painful for her. Jen doesn’t want to think about it and definitely does not believe it.”

And it seems Selena isn’t the only potential rebound partner that Jen is concerned about these days:

“Jennifer is tired of hearing about all the women Justin may be dating since there split,” the source continued.

“From Emma Watson to Selena, Jen is furious over every picture she sees of her ex with another pretty face out in New York. Jen won’t believe any of the rumors until she hears from Justin himself that he is involved in a new relationship.”

Yes, it seems Jen is concerned that Justin is running around Manhattan sleeping with everything with a pulse, a la Joey Tribbiani.

We’re of the opinion that the only way for Jen to exact revenge is for her to engage in a high-profile fling with Brad.

Actually, we have no idea if that would bother Justin or not.

We’d just like to see Jen engage in a high-profile fling with Brad Pitt.

Give the people what they want, you two!


Vanessa Trump to Aubrey O’Day: I Can F-ck My Husband Better Than You Can!

We have an update on the phone call Vanessa Trump allegedly placed to Aubrey O’Day back in 2012.

You remember that one, right?

The one we reported about back in March, which supposedly transpired after Trump learned O’Day had been sleeping with her husband and she literally called her out on the affair?

At the time, we quoted sources that said Vanessa Trump had her children on the phone, something that seemed a bit inappropriate and out of line.

However, we’ve now learned new information about this supposed phone call…

… and it’s even more stunning!

According to Page Six sources, Vanessa went full on “gangster” when confronting the former Danity Kane artist about the relationship she had with Donald Trump Jr.

Meaning what, exactly? Great question!

After discovering emails between her husband and O’Day, Vanessa dialed up Aubrey and “said some extremely unladylike things to her,” this outlet claims.

We don’t know the exact specifics, but the call “involved the usually demure Vanessa comparing her and childless O’Day’s bodies and sexual capabilities in violently graphic terms,” The New York Post writes here.

At the time of this affair, Vanessa and Donald Jr. had two kids together and Vanessa was pregnant with a third.

They now share five total children.

Based on what this insider alleges, we can only assume Vanessa was telling Aubrey that she can satisfy her man in bed better than O’Day can.

Which is great, you know? It’s important to have confidence in oneself.

But previous reports have claimed that the relationship between Donald Jr. and O’Day was not some lustful fling.

The stars supposedly talked about starting a family together.

Wrote Us Weekly at one point:

“Don told Aubrey he wanted to have a baby with her. They were trying for one.”

This would seem to imply that it didn’t matter back then whether Vanessa was more adventurous between the sheets than O’Day.

There were actual feelings involved between the singer and the son of the current President!

Of course, neither Donald Jr. nor O’Day has commented on this affair, which we heard took place between 2011 and 2012, around the time O’Day was a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice.

It ended, allegedly, after Donald Trump Sr. learned what was going on and told his son to cut it out.

A few days before news of the affair went viral, Vanessa and Donald Jr. announced the end of their marriage.

It wasn’t related to the O’Day romance, of course, considering the couple recovered from that infidelity and stayed together for nearly six more years.

This is what the couple said upon announcing its divorce:

After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways. We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families.

We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.

Did we also mention O’Day wrote a song about Trump?!?

Listen to it here:


Meghan Markle to Prince Harry: You Better Lose Some Weight Before the Wedding, Tubby!

We’re just weeks away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and it seems that in some ways, the final weeks of preparation resemble the run-up to a regular old peasant wedding.

Granted, there are far more dudes who look like playing cards come to life reading from scrolls and whatnot, but anyone who’s had a hand in planning a wedding will recognize much of what Harry and Meghan are going through.

Harry and Meghan have sent out the invitations; her dress has been designed by a designer whose name is being kept secret for some reason …

They’ve even participated in one of the most enjoyable parts of the wedding planning process – snubbing family members who were behaved douchily over the years.

“Meghan has completely changed Harry’s diet. She’s got him juicing and he has lost at least half a stone, which is a lot for someone as skinny as he is.”

On this side of the pond, “losing half a stone” sounds like the result of a very painful kidney condition, Brits know that that means Harry lost about seven pounds.

The insider went on to reveal that Meg spared no expense when it came to splurging on a juice-making machine:

“They have bought a top-of-the-range juicer and she has him on fruit and veg smoothies. She’s also weaning him off meat.”

While it’s hilarious that the source felt the need to clarify that Harry and Meg sprung for a high-end juicer, the rest of this report seems pretty credible.

We doubt Meg really cares about Harry’s wedding day appearance, but there’s good reason to believe she’d be worried about his health.

Apparently, throughout his bachelor days, Harry’s diet was downright Trumpian.

Burgers, pizza, and KFC were said to be his personal favorites, proving once again that British cuisine is the worst, and Gordon Ramsay is so angry because deep down he never had a decent meal until he came to America.

So there’s an irony in the fact that Harry is marrying an American with a reputation as a passionate foodie, but she’s got hm off red meat and onto kale smoothies.

What’s the point of being married royalty if you can’t rock a Henty VIII waistline and walk around with a turkey leg in one hand and a goblet of mead in the other?

If Harry keeps doing regular shmoe stuff, he’s gonna mess up all our fantasies about trading places, a la The Prince and the Pauper.


Kailyn Lowry to Jenelle Evans: You Better Watch Yourself, Bish!

We hope Kailyn Lowry and Jenelle Evans are in line to receive some sort of bonus from MTV, because they’ve both gone beyond the call of duty in terms of entertaining Teen Mom 2 fans with a bit of extracurricular drama that’s playing out on social media rather than television.

Of course, when you love your work, you don’t mind taking it home with you, and Jenelle loves nothing more than being a ginormous pain in the ass to her far more level-headed co-stars.

The latest insanity began when David Eason commented on a photo of Leah Messer’s daughters with an unprompted critique of one of the girls’ appearances.

Yes, David thought Leah’s 8-year-old daughter was wearing too much makeup, and for reasons that defy explanation, he decided to say so on Instagram.

Needless to say, it didn’t go over well.

Pretty much everyone who saw the comment reacted with some variation on “WTF is wrong with this guy?” and of course, that caused Jenelle to lose her mind.

Evans not only defended her husband, she went nuclear on his critics, especially Leah, with the batsh-t argument that David had every right to bully a little girl, because that little girl’s mom once said something sort of mean about him on a podcast.

This led Kailyn Lowry to defend Leah by pointing out once again that Jenelle is a hypocritical crazy person who can dish it out, but can’t even come close to taking it.

“Let’s first start by saying that Jenelle creates her own drama and then blames everyone else,” Lowry told Radar Online.

Kail went on to reveal that Jenelle’s temper-tantrum-followed-by-pity-party pattern is one that her co-stars are sadly all too familiar with.

“There have been multiple times over the years where Jenelle will remove herself from set or have a meltdown resulting in not being in pictures or whatever,” Lowry said.

“Then she will throw a fit saying we bully her or didn’t include her.”

Kailyn went on to claim that Jenelle’s alliance with Briana DeJesus has less to do with any rapport between those two and more to do with Evans’ desire to have someone on her side in her ongoing war with 

“When they added a fifth girl who has beef with people, Jenelle immediately ‘has her back,’ which is cool. Do that. But then don’t turn around when Chelsea, Leah, and I have been close the whole time.

“Of course we are going to have each other’s backs,” she added.

Kailyn concluded with a word of warning directed at Jenelle:

“I’m not going to think twice if you talk about their kids,” she wrote. “Keep the kids out of it.” 

Solid advice. Which means we’re guessing Jenelle won’t follow it.

Watch Teen Mom 2 online for more reminders of just how bonkers Jenelle truly is.


Verne Troyer is Hopefully in a “Better Place,” Mike Myers Says

Over the past few hours, many people who knew Verne Troyer well have reacted to the sad news of his passing.

As previously reported, Troyer died on Saturday at the age of 49.

The tragic development came mere days after many outlets also reported that Troyer had been hospitalized due to excessive drinking and what many believe had been a suicide attempt.

No cause of death had been revealed at the time of this writing.

Of all the tributes posted on Troyer’s honor, however, the most noteworthy and heartbreaking comes from Mike Myers.

The 54-year old co-starred with Troyer in the Austin Powers franchise, portraying Dr. Evil to Troyer’s Mini-Me. It was the role for which Troyer would forever be best known.

“Verne was the consummate professional and a beacon of positivity for those of us who had the honor of working with him,” Myers said in a statement obtained by Entertainment Weekly on Saturday.

He added:

“It is a sad day, but I hope he is in a better place. He will be greatly missed.

Troyer’s major acting break came in 1999 due to the role of Mini-Me in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.

He reprised this role in the 2002 sequel, Austin Powers in Goldmember.

The actor had reportedly battled alcoholism for years and had checked into rehab on several occasions.

Alas, he never received the help he so badly needed.

Said Troyer’s family in a statement on Saturday afternoon:

“It is with great sadness and incredibly heavy hearts to write that Verne passed away today. Verne was an extremely caring individual.

“He wanted to make everyone smile, be happy, and laugh. Anybody in need, he would help to any extent possible.”

On April 2, Troyer – who was born with achondroplasia dwarfism and listed at 2’8″ – was rushed to the hospital for a “reported poisoning.”

The Los Angeles City Fire Department confirmed to People Magazine that they were called to the actor’s North Hollywood home and that Troyer was “extremely upset, drunk and suicidal” at the scene.

We expect more to be revealed about his cause of death in the days ahead.

For now, a statement on Troyer’s Instagram page concludes as follows:

During this recent time of adversity he was baptized while surrounded by his family. The family appreciates that they have this time to grieve privately.

Depression and Suicide are very serious issues.

You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it’s never too late to reach out to someone for help.

Over the past few years, Troyer became known for his appearances in reality television.

The troubled actor had stints on Celebrity Juice, Celebrity Wife Swap, and The Surreal Life.

May he rest in peace.
