The Royal Family Has Never Looked This Happy Before

Stodgy? Stoic? Serious?

More like… playful! Fun-loving! And totally adorable!

In a pair of candid new photos, the most prominent members of Great Britain’s Royal Family aim to put to rest all rumors of them as very serious and even unusually cold and distant.

See what we mean right here:

This picture and the one we’ve also shared down below were snapped in the gardens of Clarence House by photographer Chris Jackson.

They were released in honor of Prince Charles‘ 70th birthday on Wednesday and they include pretty much everyone:

Charles, Duchess Camilla and grandkids Prince George and Princess Charlotte are on a wooden bench, comfortable and cozy.

Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle are standing behind them sharing a big hearty laugh… while Prince William and Duchess Kate Middleton – who is cradling Prince Louis – are grinning at their side.

This really could be any family on any important occasion, couldn’t it?

We’ve never seen this well-known group looking so candid and relaxed before.

Wrote Jackson as a message along with the images:

“I’ve travelled all over the world photographing the Prince of Wales for the last 15 years from Durbars in Nigeria to the Galapagos Islands, Pakistan, Japan and many more as well as covering numerous domestic Royal Engagements so I was delighted to have been asked to take these official portraits of The Prince surrounded by his family to celebrate the important milestone of his 70th Birthday.

“It was particularly special to capture such an informal and relaxed family portrait over a fun afternoon in the gardens of Clarence House.”

Amidst rumors that Markle is a diva and there’s division within the Royal Ranks, these photographs could not have come out at a better time.

Charles turning 70 years old has placed the once-controversial prince (the dude cheated on Princess Diana!) squarely in the spotlight for the first time in years.

There’s a new documentary coming out about him and a recent screen grab from the program gave us a rare glimpse at the youngest member of his family.

Hello there, Prince Louis!

The Duke of Wales tries to spend as much time as he can with his grandchildren, with his wife saying in the aforementioned documentary of Charles and the young ones around him:

“He will get down on his knees and crawl about with them for hours, you know making funny noises and laughing and my grandchildren adore him, absolutely adore him.

“He reads Harry Potter and he can do all the different voices and I think children really appreciate that.”

William has also said his father is “brilliant” with George, and you can kind of see how close the two are in the first two photos featured here.

Of late, of course, all attention has turned from Kate and William’s kids to the growing tiny person inside of Markle.

She is pregnant, in case you haven’t had an Internet connection or access to a television in many weeks.

Although she and Prince Harry have not yet revealed Markle’s due date, it is widely believed that she’s expected to give birth in early May.

She may even welcome her son or daughter on May 2, which is Princess Charlotte’s birthday, which would just be so darn cute all around. 

We’ll keep fans posted.

In the meantime, how about these glorious Royal Photos, huh?

Never thought we’d see the day where these famous and important folks looked so… normal, you know?


Briana DeJesus: Jenelle Evans Will NEVER Get Along With Kailyn Lowry! [Exclusive]

Briana DeJesus is like lightning in a bottle.

DeJesus breathed new life into the aging Teen Mom 2 franchise when she joined the cast in 2017, an effect that MTV has been unable to reproduce on Teen Mom OG.

The reason, of course, is that Bristol Palin and Cheyenne Floyd are not Briana DeJesus.

Briana knows how to stir the pot and spill the tea like any good reality star should.

In fact, as she proved in a recent exclusive interview with The Hollywood Gossip, the mother of two can deliver the drama even when the cameras aren't rolling.

Take a look:

Khloe Kardashian: I Will NEVER Forget What Tristan Thompson Did!

So hey, how about last night’s episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, huh?

Or, if you didn’t catch it, how about Tristan Thompson and his gross, inconsiderate ways?

Yep, last night was the big night.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians finally got to the part where everyone discovered that Tristan had cheated on Khloe.

It was honestly kind of intense, even though everything happened several months ago and we know how it all turned out.

Kourtney called Tristan’s actions “disgusting,” and Kendall said that he was an “idiot.”

Meanwhile, Khloe herself took the news pretty well, especially considering that she was just days away from giving birth.

As she explained it, she didn’t want to really think about it all or make a big decision about whether or not she’d stay with him.

“I just want to go and give birth and try to enjoy this,” she said.

She also said that she still wanted him to be in the delivery room with her, and that she didn’t want any of her family members to “make him uncomfortable and make me uncomfortable.”

But even though that was her stance, and even though she’s still with him, that doesn’t mean things are fine.

She made that perfectly clear in a series of tweets she shared last night.

To kick things off, she wrote that “Tonight’s episode is an uncomfortable and super emotional one for me.”

“But when we signed up for this show over a decade ago, we signed up for a reality show, which meant showing you guys inside our lives, the good, the bad and the ugly.”

Poor Khloe then admitted that “to relive these moments all over again is incredibly difficult,” but that “I also hope that with every trial, tribulation and curve ball life throws at us, that we ALL get to learn from our journeys.”

“Amidst the tough times,” she added, “I have been blessed with the ultimate gift, my sweet baby True who has changed my life in ways I never could have imagined.”

And for a bit of advice, she told her followers to “remember that you are never alone in your pain, and that everything is temporary.”

“Pain, joy, elation, panic, anxiety, it is all temporary. Be grateful for the experiences that continue to build character, and make you who you are.”

So it’s clear that the whole mess with Tristan affected her very deeply, right?

After all of that, a follower told her that no one would be mad if she just skipped the episode altogether.

“I will see how much I can handle,” she replied. “This goes for tonight AND next week.”

So there’s more heartbreak next week … ugh.

Later, Khloe tweeted about how much she loves doing the show and how she’s “proud that we are all strong and brave enough to be vulnerable.”

“BUT we have to start airing shows closer to real time,” she complained.

“This episode is about 7 months old and it’s a lot to relive all over again. But maybe I need to.”

She discussed some other things from the episode too, but of course she could never get too far from all the drama.

At one point, she wrote “Oh my God my heart is racing! So crazy how emotions never die! You may forgive but forgetting is not possible.”

You hear that, Tristan?

Then, to wrap up her discussion on the episode, she took some time to explain exactly why she didn’t react too strongly to the news of Tristan’s unfaithfulness.

Spoiler: it was all for True.

“I wanted to have a beautiful birthing experience for myself and for the memories of what I choose to share with True when she’s older,” she said.

“I want her to have videos and pictures of her daddy there, holding her etc. I want her to know she is LOVE and my happiness!”

“Babies feel energy!” she continued. “I know this! I chose to put my feelings aside for the birth and to try and have as much positive energy that I could.”

“My only thought was about the birth of my daughter. I wasn’t going to let ANYONE disrupt anything less than what she deserved. Joyous love.”

She wrote that she chose to be strong for her baby, especially since “I waited for this day for so many years!”

Looking back on everything now, Khloe realized that she was “in shock because I couldn’t believe that this would ever happen to me.”

However, she’s still proud of herself for being so strong and doing what she felt was best for her daughter.

“True gave me the peace and strength I needed,” she concluded.

It’s so sweet that she felt so strongly about having a positive birth for True, isn’t it?

It’s also so sad that she had to make that decision because Tristan couldn’t keep himself from stepping out on his pregnant girlfriend.

But let’s try to focus on the very few positive points of this awful story.

The very, very few positive points.

Next week’s episode sure is going to be rough.


Jenni Farley & Roger Mathews: We Are Never, Ever, Ever Getting Back Together

Sad news from our favorite crew of tanning bed enthusiasts today.

As you may have heard, Jersey Shore star Jenni Farley has separated from Roger Mathews after three years of marriage.

The split is particularly heartbreaking, as Mathews has made it clear that he has no intention of giving up on the relationship.

In a series of videos and social media posts, Mathews has pleaded with Farley to take him back.

Alas, the famously hard-hearted JWoww seems to have no interest in a reconciliation.

Sources close to the mother of two claim Farley has stated unequivocally that she’ll never get back together with Mathews.

So fans were more than a little confused when Jenni posted pics of a Halloween photoshoot in which she posed alongside Roger and the couple’s two children.

In fact, in the comments section of Farley’s Instagram post, many of her followers congratulated her on reconciling with Mathews:

“JWoww is over Roger and as far as she is concerned, they aren’t getting back together,” a source close to the situation tells Hollywood Life.

“Jenni arranged a Halloween family photo shoot for daughter Meilani over the weekend because she’s obsessed with Disney and Moana, but that’s the only reason she did it.”

The insider says Jenni and Roger are both committed to ensuring that the split is as painless as possible for their children.

And so they’ll continue to participate in family functions together, but Farley has apparently made up her mind and plans to proceed with a divorce.

“She’ll continue to put together family functions and it gives Roger hope, but there’s really no chance she will get back together with him,” the source adds.

“It’s really important to Jenni to keep the kids lives as normal as possible,” the informant continues.

“She and Roger are completely amicable and there’s no bad blood whatsoever, but for Jenni, they’ve grown apart. Roger wants her back, but it’s not going to happen.

“They both love and respect one another, but Jenni feels they’ve kind of grown apart. Everything she’s doing right now is strictly for the kids and what’s in their best interest.”

Both parties have confirmed that there was no infidelity or abusive behavior in their marriage, and Jenni’s decision to end the relationship was simply a result of a slow deterioration of affection.

Unfortunately for Roger, it sounds as though she’s inflexible on the matter.


Jen Harley: I Never Hit Ronnie Magro! I Can Prove He’s Lying!

Earlier this week, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro alleged that Jen Harley had attacked him yet again.

If you've been watching Jersey Shore Family Vacation this season, then we probably don't need to tell you that this was not an isolated incident.

In fact, it looks as though Jen has gotten violent with Ron on multiple occasions.

But Jen says that while that may what Ronnie wants us to think, it's simply not the case.

She says he's been lying all the time, and now she's offering up what she says is proof of that claim:

1. The Happy Couple

Jen harley and ronnie ortiz magro
Fans, friends, and family members have been encouraging Ron to part ways with Jen for months now — and it looks as though he’s finally taken that advice.

2. One Long Rough Patch

It’s tempting to say that things began to deteriorate for Ronnie and Jen, but to be honest, things have been so bad between these two that it’s hard to imagine this relationship was ever healthy.

3. Ron-page

Ronnies black eye
Ron recently accused Jen of assaulting him and leaving him with a black eye. He even posted photographic evidence of his injuries on Instagram.

4. Harsh Words

“Sorry for lying to my friends and family, sometimes u love people so much your willing to lie and the hurt the people that love u the most to protect,” he captioned the pic.

5. Jen’s Two Cents

Harley recently took to social media to dismiss Ron as an abject liar. And she claims to have proof that Magro is being dishonest with Shore fans.

6. It’s Over

“No I will never speak to him again,” Harley replied to a fan who asked about her relationship with Ron late last night. “I’ve kept my mouth shut for to (sic) long.”

Kristen Doute: Nev Schulman is a Jerk and I’ll Never Watch Catfish Again!

Despite Nev Schulman’s accuser filing a police report, they’re keeping him on Catfish, but the show is still looking for a new cohost.

Many thought that Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute would be a shoe-in for a host of reasons.

Nev laughed it off and basically called her a stalker, and Kristen is firing back.

Max Joseph is out at Catfish.

Nev Schulman, despite the sexual misconduct allegations against him, is still hosting the show.

And he’s looking for someone else. Naturally, a lot of people suggested Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute.

It’s not just that Kristen has been a fan of the show.

Kristen has some real detective skills, as The Ashley notes, having exposed her cheating ex-boyfriend James Kennedy and tracked down Tom Sandoval’s “Miami Girl.”

Kristen Doute tweets for Catfish

Using a common celebrity tactic, Kristen even drummed up support for the idea on Twitter, and a lot of fans loved the idea.

But when the subject came up in a recent interview, Nev Schulman shot down the possibility in a deeply insulting way.

“I’m even afraid to say her name, honestly,” Nev told Us Weekly.

He joked about her fondness for Catfish, saying: “I almost feel like I need to take a restraining order out.”

“Kristen really wants to be on the show,” Nev added. “I think she’s almost … she’s trying too hard!”

Kristen Doute appeared on co-star Stassi Schroeder’s Straight Up With Stassi to respond.

“I do not like ‘Catfish.’ I do not watch it,” Kristen shares. “I took it off my DVR.”

Kristen says: “I tweeted Nev. I’ve tweeted Max before. I’ve tweeted at ‘Catfish.’ I definitely started my own hashtag: #KristenForCatfish.”

“You know what, all of my wonderful followers on Twitter had my back and had that s–t trending real hard,” she notes.

“They know that I’m right” for the job, she says, “because I’ve taught them so many things that you, Nev, did not.”

“Everyone that I know — my team, my friends, the people who follow me — all contacted me like, ‘Kristen! He’s looking for a co-host!’” Krisen reveals.

Her interest in the show was famous, so it’s natural that she would come to mind.

“I thought it would be really fun to do one time,” Kristen explains. “I promote the s–t out of it and tell everyone to watch it.”

Stassi reassures her that she did nothing wrong by being outspoken about her hopes.

“That’s called manifesting,” Stassi notes.

Kristen laments how Nev responded: “He was a complete a–hole about it.”

If she just hadn’t gotten the role, that would be one thing. This rudeness is another matter.

“I unfollowed everything,” Kristen says of things related to Catfish. “And I don’t watch the show anymore”

She made this move “because that s–t [Nev said about me] was so beyond rude for someone who commends what you’ve done.”

“He badmouthed me because he thinks he’s too f–king cool for school,” she theorizes.

“He probably won’t even acknowledge this,” Kristen says. “But even if he wanted to say he was joking, it’s still f–king rude.”

She is absolutely right.

You can tell that Stassi is really heartbroken about this.

“It breaks my heart because you’ve talked about this show for so long,” Stassi says supportively.

“What do you want?” Kristen asks of Nv. “Do you want people to never speak about your show or be excited about it?”

She has a very valid point. If you shame fans of your show for liking it … how do you expect other fans to feel?

“It actually hurt my feelings,” Kristen admits. “And then it pissed me off.”

Khloe Kardashian: I Can Never Trust Tristan Thompson Again!

Back in April, Tristan Thompson’s cheating scandal broke right before Khloe Kardashian went into labor with his child.

Now, almost exactly six months later, Khloe is still reportedly struggling to trust him again.

A report says that the two are not in the best place right now — and that it’s making Khloe reconsider everything about her life with Tristan.

A report by E! reveals that Khloe is struggling to trust Tristan, even (almost) half a year after his cheating scandal broke.

“Khloe had everything planned to leave for Cleveland early last week,” the insider shares.

But she got cold feet “and decided not to go.”

“She doesn’t feel comfortable to leave her home and family in L.A. and head back to her life in Cleveland right now,” the source explains.

(Though, to be fair, a lot of people would not feel comfortable moving to Cleveland)

“She isn’t ready to go,” the insider adds.

“Khloe has had many ups and downs lately with Tristan,” the source explains.

So, the insider continues, despite their recent face-licking PDA, “[she] and Tristan are not in the best place currently.”

Public displays of joy can sometimes mask real turmoil. But Khloe is hoping that she can change this.

“Khloe wants to work things out for the sake of True,” the source says.

“But,” the insider notes. “It has been very difficult recently.”

“She has huge trust issues that she has not overcome,” the source reveals.

Tristan Thompson is 6-foot-9. That’s about as huge as a trust issue can get.

“And,” the insider continues. “It’s definitely caused a rift.”

“Khloe thought things would blow over,” the source adds.

The insider explains that Khloe had wanted to move on from her emotional wounds “but she still has insecurities deep down.”

A second source confirms that Khloe is “struggling with trusting him (Tristan) to be on his own around other women when she isn’t there.”

Recent reports that Tristan may be cheating again cannot be helping with that.

“In addition to her own insecurities about Tristan’s infidelity,” the insider says. “Khloe is continuing to struggle with her family’s thoughts of Tristan.”

This is a big deal, the source explains, “as most of them haven’t forgiven him for cheating.”

(Who has?)

This is a sticking point for her family, “even though they are trying to support Khloe’s decision to be with him.”

It sounds like Khloe’s loved ones have their priorities in order.

“Everyone in the family ultimately wants what’s best for True,” the insider reports.

The source says that they could live with him being with Khloe forever, “but they’re wary that Tristan will cheat again.”

A guy who cheats with a whole bunch of women while his girlfriend is pregnant, one thinks, could cheat at any time.

“And,” the insider says. “They hate seeing how this is effecting Khloe.”

Interestingly, a source says that “(Kourtney) has been the most open-minded about Khloe and Tristan reconciling.”

We should note that E! News‘ post has since vanished.

Sometimes posts get taken down briefly to be reworked, but it is possible that they learned that these sources were inaccurate.

Some, however, believe that Khloe may have used her influence with E! — remember, Keeping Up With The Kardashians gives them tremendous pull there.

Did Khloe see the article and demand that it be taken down?


Cameran Eubanks: Apologizes, Vows to Never Again Mention Vaccines

Southern Charm is no stranger to controversy — most notably the stunning rise and fall of Thomas Ravenel.

This time, it’s Cameran Eubanks who’s been put in the hotseat. Not by police, but by her own followers.

When she shared her opinion about vaccines, the backlash was so intense that she deleted her tweet — and apologized.

On Thursday, Southern Charm star Cameran Eubanks decided to encourage her followers to make responsible health decisions.

She posted a photo of the bandage on her arm, announcing that she had just receive her flu vaccine for this year.

Cameran then encouraged her fans and followers to do the same.

It’s not just the right thing to do for themselves — it can help to protect others, including those with compromised immune systems.

The backlash to her post was enough that she promptly deleted it.

Cameran Eubanks apologizes on Instagram

After deleting her post, she shared an undeserved apology message with her followers.

“I just deleted a post that I made today about my belief in getting the flu shot,” she began.

“Never did I think it would cause such a fuss,” she explains.

A few years ago, it might not have. But thanks to internet algorithms, dangerous misinformation spreads like a virus.

“I’m sorry to all I offended who don’t believe in vaccinating themselves and their children,” she writes.

“If you do not vaccinate I do not think you are stupid or wrong,” Cameran generously claims.

Not everyone would be so charitable in their assessment of people who endanger their children and others by believing falsehoods.

“We just disagree,” she writes.

“I have always said I will not talk about religion or politics on social media,” Cameran concludes. “And now I’m adding vaccines too.”

This is not the first time that Cameran has been taken aback by an unexpected controversy.

“Palmer had hers today,” Cameran shared about her 11-month-old. “I played baby shark and not even a whimper. Couldn’t believe it. God bless that annoying ass song!”

Her Southern Charm costar, the incomparable Patricia Altschul, also posted on Thursday after she received her flu shot.

“@caconover is right! I just had my flu shot and I can only walk backwards #southerncharm #medicine.”

Craig Conover, everyone’s favorite formerly reformed playboy who talks like a frat guy, has some wild opinions about vaccines.

He called them a “crazy government shot” that would force him to walk backwards for the rest of his life.

Honestly, that’s not the worst thing that we’ve heard an anti-vaxxer say, but … that’s not saying much.

Patricia was not the only one who leapt to Cameran’s defense.

“Um your post literally reminded me to sign up for ours,” wrote one fan. “Appointments booked. Thank you for posting about it!”

“It’s not a matter of belief or disbelief, nor opinion. It’s a matter of science and facts,” correctly asserted another fan.

That comment continued: “Vaccines save lives and suffering and those who choose not to certainly have the right to that choice, but yeah, they are wrong.”

“My family doesn’t get the flu shot,” wrote another commenter. “And I still found nothing wrong with your post!”

Vaccinations aren’t just a personal decision — they help protect those with compromised immune systems through “herd immunity.”

Someone whose immune system doesn’t function at full capacity cannot be vaccinated, so they are vulnerable to the flu — or something worse, like measles.

But everyone with whom they come into contact is vaccinated, then they are insulated by the “herd” and less likely to be exposed to a contagion.

As for the theories about vaccines being dangerous … some of that is misinformation, and some is fearmongering.

(Personal note: I am one of the one-in-a-million people who had a strongly adverse reaction to a vaccination as an infant; the real virus would have been worse and I’m glad that I was vaccinated)

Vaccines do not cause autism, but even if they did, we would all rather see a child be autistic than die of a preventable disease.
