Prince William Debuts Shaved Head: Heads-Up Move or Follicle Folly?

With the world eagerly anticipating the Prince Harry-Meghan Markle wedding, that other royal couple has temporarily ceded the spotlight.

And it seems Prince William decided to take advantage of his time away from the spotlight by finally embracing the male pattern baldness that’s been colonizing his noggin since the pre-Kate era.

As you can see, William shaved his head before publicly meeting with military veterans who are working with Britain’s National Health Service.

Perhaps Will thought if he debuted his shiny dome at an event attended mostly by dudes with crew cuts, it wouldn’t be as noticeable.

But since nothing he does goes unnoticed, the British press immediately pounced.

Is the 35-year-old father of two embracing middle-age?

Is he simply trying out a new look before Harry and Meghan get married in May?

These were serious questions posed by actual publications for grownups.

As some royal obsessives have pointed out, this isn’t actually the first time that William has shaved his head.

Apparently, he busted out the royal razor in 2016, but didn’t leave his scalp quite this hairless.

William’s baldness has made him the butt of jokes for quite some time, with even his family roasting the prince for his Costanza cut.

One well-publicized incident took place will Will and Kate Middleton were visiting an alpaca farm back in 2014.

“The prince was interested in the alpaca, and as I showed it to them the princess said he should put it on his head,”  says Lyn Crejan, the farmer who showed the royal couple around.

“[Kate ]said, ‘You need it more than me,’ and pointed to his head and he laughed.”

Yes, times have certainly changed.

Just a few centuries ago, if you made fun of a prince’s head, yours would be in a basket by the end of the day.

In all seriousness, it’s nice to see Will just saying screw it and embrace his baldness.

Besides, it won’t be long before that head is covered by a crown, anyway.


Janelle Brown: Sister Wives Star Debuts Dramatic Weight Loss!

Janelle Brown of Sister Wives, along with her husband, Kody, was in Las Vegas over the weekend, even the night before the Las Vegas shooting that claimed the lives of 59 people and injured 527.

Janelle updated her Instagram to make sure that everyone knew that she and the whole Brown family are okay. So don’t panic.

But Janelle had also shared a photo, below, and it is striking how much weight she has lost. You might not recognize her.

Sister Wives gets a lot of criticism, but it tends to have much less to do with the titular wives and a lot more to do with the family’s husband, Kody Brown.

Kody just comes across as unlikable and more than a little creepy.

The Browns agreed to do the show because they wanted to help normalize polygamy and to push for legalization.

A lot of people who are totally in support of legalizing the marriages of more than two consenting adults are disappointed, because Sister Wives does not really show a great example of healthy polyamory.

Instead, we get Kody. Off-putting and obnoxious Kody.

On the plus side, we’ve gotten to know the wives themselves by watching the series. And their children, and their children’s loved ones.

While Meri Brown had a disappointing reaction to learning that her daughter was gay, other moms have had more positive reactions to their children’s love lives.

Like Janelle, whose son Logan Brown recently got engaged.

But anyway, this is about Janelle, specifically.

So, as we said, Kody and Janelle were in Vegas over the weekend.

On Sunday, Janelle shared the (below) photo with the caption:

“Kody and I may really regret the second night in a row LOL. But we couldn’t pass up Depeche Mode! I love the concert opportunities Las Vegas . #wemaybecrazy @kodywinnbrown”

Like we said, they’re totally okay, unlike hundreds of victims of the terrorist shooting.

But one very striking thing about the photo is how much trimmer Janelle’s face looks.

Take a look:

She really does look dramatically thinner.

Sometimes, people’s faces are the last parts of them that lose weight.

In a video fro TLC, Janelle has spoken about her weight loss journey.

“You know, I’ve been making some big changes in my life — trying to get myself healthier and my kids healthier — and part of that is what I’ve been fixing for dinner and that I’ve been fixing dinner.”

She’s been combining diet and exercise, which really is the best path to changing your figure and, often, one’s health.

“So I’m a big bargain shopper and a coupon shopper — so I have a pantry, and I stock it full of things when they are on sale, they’re cheap. But really, not a lot of processed foods; I don’t keep a lot of pastries, or even a lot of pasta.”

Pasta is delicious, but we’ll grudgingly admit that it’s usually not conducive to weight loss and should therefore be eaten sparingly if you’re looking to change your habits.

“I used to be a person that would order out or drive-thru somewhere two or three nights a week.”

For some people, that’s the healthiest choice. Depending on how much time you have in the day, ordering delivery might be your only way to be sure that you make healthy choices.

If you don’t have much time, something like curry with all of its vegetables could be a much better option than heating up some frozen enchiladas. Not everyone has time to prepare a full meal.

But if she does, that’s great. It’s clearly working for her.

“And i’ve come back to really making the base of our meals — meat, or protein, fish, or chicken, whatever it is that I have — and then fruits and vegetables, and then adding potatoes or whatever it is that I have around the same for the children.”

Really thinking about what you’re putting into your meals and therefore into your body is a smart choice.

“I’ve seen our overall health improve, I’ve seen our grocery budget go down, and I think it’s pretty much changed the way that we’re eating at home. And that’s really led to great success in my fitness journey as well — to improve the way that I’m eating.”

That’s so great!

Now, if Janelle could only lose … however much Kody weighs. You know, like the classic divorcee quote: “I just lost 200 pounds!” Or, you know, whatever the ex-husband weighs.

Actually, we’ve heard repeatedly that Kody Brown might lose all four sister-wives, but they never seem to part ways.

Is it just wishful thinking on our part that they’ll start living their own lives and stop living under Kody’s thumb?

Could it be that Kody has qualities that make him an admirable husband and the camera has just failed to capture those?

Probably not.


Megyn Kelly Debuts on Today, Gets Destroyed on Twitter

Megyn Kelly has left Fox News for NBC.

This move took place at the outset of 2017, but it was truly made official when she debuted as the host of an hour of The Today Show on September 25.

"The truth is, I'm kind of done with politics for now," she said to open her new gig. "You know why, right? We all feel it, it's everywhere. And it's just gotten so dark."

Well, yeah. But it's also sort of important.

And you can't just snap your fingers and go from Serious Conservative Commentator on Fox News to Jovial and Innocuous Morning Personality on NBC.

But Kelly is trying. And this is how Twitter responded to those efforts after her first show…

1. In a Word?

In a word

2. Old Megyn Kelly, Meet Old Taylor Swift

Old megyn kelly meet old taylor swift
You’re both dead.

3. This Show Needs a Name Change

This show needs a name change
Just come out and be honest, NBC.

4. Warm and Fuzzy?

Warm and fuzzy
How about Transparent and Lame?

5. So, Uhhh, That Happened

So uhhh that happened
Let’s just try to smile through it.

6. Goodbye, Fear!

Goodbye fear
Hello, Hope!

Bella Thorne Debuts Halloween Costume: The Sexy Weed Doctor Is In!

It’s a tired joke at this point, but Halloween really has gone from a time when parents get dragged around the neighborhood by cranky toddlers in shoddy Marvel masks to a holiday that’s mostly focused on drunk people wearing underwear and cat ears in public.

And for that, we thank it.

Of course, for social media celebrities, the Halloween season starts earlier every year, and this year it looks like the divine Ms. Bella Thorne is first out of the gate with a costume that conveys her profound understanding for what makes the internet tick:

Yes, that’s Bella dressed as … some sort of sexy employee at a weed dispensary?

A sexy stoned Mortal Kombat character?

A sexy tribute to the politicians are helping to lower our nation’s appalling incarceration rate by decriminalizing cannabis?

We’re not sure, but we know there’s weed involved, and we’re guessing the website she ordered it from described it as “sexy.”

Bella captioned the pic, “Hi, indica? Or sativa?”

Which basically translates to, “I’m not just wearing the costume to rack up likes; I legit smoke weed.”

And that’s about it for context.

We know from Bella’s time with Scott Disick that she’s not much of a drinker, and apparently she’s planning to advertise her love for the jazz cabbage on Halloween night.

Or is she?

These days, it’s not unusual for the young folk to rock pick up multiple Halloween costumes with an eye on going out multiple nights.

Hence, Bella’s … sexy red rabbit thing costume.

Frankly, we have no idea what’s going on here, but that’s okay.

Revealing Halloween costumes are like Christopher Nolan movies.

You don’t have to completely enjoy them to appreciate them.

All that really matters these days is that Bella is done with Scott Disick.

She could run around in February in a form-fitting burlap sack and call it a sexy 1920s hobo costume, and we’d be cool with it.

In fact, we’re kind of hoping that happens now.
