Prince Harry and Prince William: Our Wives Are Tearing Us Apart!

Even though even Prince Charles knows Meghan Markle is cooler than Kate Middleton, both Duchesses and their Princely husbands are as thick as thieves.

But that may be about to change after Meghan gives birth.

Apparently, Prince Harry and Prince William are drawing up plans to divide their joint “court” and have separate offices.

Prince William and Prince Harry are very close, even for siblings, but they’re looking to create some distance.

According to The Sunday Times, William and Harry are considering separating their joint “court” at Kensington Palace.

They would instead go on and create two separate offices.

These alleged plans would only be implemented this spring or later, after Meghan Markle’s due date.

That is, of course, if they follow through with it at all.

We know that it’s always tempting for people to suspect some sort of secret family rift as the culprit.

That’s always interesting a juicy, but only rarely true.

The Princes have an actual purpose for dividing into separate offices, and it’s because they have different royal destinies.

William will one day be Prince of Wales. He is his father’s heir.

And it seems likely that William will one day be king, barring a bizarre set of circumstances.

Harry and Meghan will very naturally want to forge their own path, according ot insiders.

Sally Bedell Smith, author of Royals, spoke to People on the subject of this potential separation.

“The arrival of Meghan has changed the dynamic of the relationship in a fairly significant way,” Smith reports.

That makes a lot of sense. Harry was the center of attention for something other than international thirst.

“It is inevitable and practical,” Smith says of the move for separate offices.

Smith says it will happen “because it gives Harry and Meghan some freedom to build up their own collection of interests and charities.”

Meghan is a passionate, caring person.

“Meghan has very strong views on what she is interested in,” Smith affirms.

“And,” Smith notes. “That may be what Harry shares.”

That wouldn’t be a surprise. They dated for a long time before they married.

It would only make sense for them to have a lot of shared passions.

“But,” Smith admits, Meghan and Harry’s charitable interests may be “not what William and Kate share.”

“They have brought many charities working in the same sector together to empower them and lend their positions,” Smith says of the Princes.

“But,” Smith continues. “They will increasingly follow their own respective interests.”

A report has claimed that Prince Harry’s friends don’t like Meghan’s Left-leaning views on topics such as animal welfare.

They allegedly consider such views “trendy,” which is exactly what you’d expect from terminally British aristocrats.

“I think it really is just a shift in priorities and interests,” Smith suggests.

“William is a husband and father of three and his focus is primarily on them,” Smith notes. “And Harry will soon be a father.”

In Sally Bedell Smith’s estimation, both Princes will more or less go on as they have.

“Each of them will continue [to be] the very strong representative of the Queen,” Smith says.

Smith says that they will do so “in carrying out tasks and assignments that she, and probably their father, wants them to do.”

Royal duties don’t go away, even when you’re a parent.

And separate offices won’t change that.

“They are going to be sharing in this diffusion of activities on behalf of the Queen,” Smith affirms.

That said, the palace had no official comment on this story. The princes may go in another direction.

Kody Brown and the Sister Wives Have Moved to Arizona!

While Sister Wives daughter Mariah Brown gushes about her move to Chicago, Kody Brown and the sister wives themselves have uprooted their family for a move of their own.

Kody and the sister wives left Vegas to move to Flagstaff, Arizona. They announced the move months ago, but have made some progress since then.

Here is what we know about their big move:

In July, the Browns put out a statement explaining why they were making this drastic change.

“As much as we’ve loved making our home and memories here in Las Vegas,” the statement began.

The statement continued: “we are excited to embark on a new adventure in Flagstaff, Arizona.”

“We are looking forward to cooler temperatures, the mountain air, scenic views,” the statement read.

The statement concluded, adding: “and the slower lifestyle of Flagstaff.”

At present, Kody and his wives and their young children have yet to actually move into new, permanent residences.

Don’t get us wrong — they’re lviing in Flagstaff. They made the move.

But apparently they’re currently living in four rentals, which are scattered throughout Flagstaff, and have also rented a commercial building.

In a recent interview with The Associated Press, Kody joked about the tangled logistical ngihtmare of moving so many people before their new homes are actually built.

“We moved to heaven,” he joked. “But we’re living in hell right now.”

Once their new residences are ready, however, it looks like they’ll be living in paradise.

Kody and the sister wives have spent $ 820,000 on purchasing their new properties, which will allow them to live in close proximity to each other.

The purchase of the four lots makes for a combined 15 acres of land.

It is also close to downtown Flagstaff.

But they’ll have to wait for their new homes to be built. In the mean times, they deal with inconvenience and a little chaos while their lives hang in limbo.

Even before they made their move to Flagstaff, Meri Brown spoke of her excitement alongside a photo of the open sky.

“Anyone who knows me well knows how much I love the mountains, the peace, calm, & serenity that can be found there,” Meri began.

Her post continued: “Since moving away from Utah I’ve missed being able to head up to my favorite mountain anytime I want.”

“But I’m looking forward to our move to the mountains of Arizona,” Meri expressed hopefully.

Meri concluded that she is excited about “the road that’s stretched out ahead of me and the promise it holds.”

Robyn Brown deer pic in flagstaff

Robyn Brown snapped a photo of a deer, writing: “I came upon this lovely creature in my backyard. It was an accident that I got so close. I had to snap a picture.”

“She just stopped and stared at me for the longest time,” Robyn shared. “I think she saw into my soul.”

“Ari has been scared of the deer we have been seeing,” Robyn continued. “But I explained they were nice and safe.”

“Now,” Robyn shared. “She loves watching them through the window. ‘They are nice happy deer!’ she says.”

Hopefully we’ll get to see a lot of their new experiences when Sister Wives returns on January 4!

Gloria Govan, Troubled Basketball Wives Star, Accused of Child Endangerment

Gloria Govan, a woman mostly known to the public at large for having sizable breasts and for having slept with a handful of professional athletes, is in trouble with the law.

According to TMZ, Govan was arrested on Friday on a charge of felony child endangerment.

This is what sources say went down…

Based on Govan’s custody arrangement with ex-husband and former NBA forward Matt Barnes, the latter was scheduled to pick up his and Gloria’s kids from school on Friday.

Barnes was then the parent legally determined to be spending Labor Day Weekend with the childen.

HOWEVER, Govan apparently had other ideas.

She showed up about five minutes before the final school bell rang and put her two sons in her car.

Not long afterward, Barnes arrived and told his boys to get into his car because, again, it was his turn to spend a few days with him.

The kids reportedly acquiesced and got into the car with their dad.

It was at this point, TMZ writes, that Govan “flew into a rage,” screaming and cursing and even blocking the path of Barnes’ car.

A witness to the ugly scene promptly called 911.

Govan was subsequently arrested for child endangerment and also violating a court order.

After police her Gloria to jail, they allowed Barnes take the kids after he showed them paperwork that proved he had custody this weekend.

Govan was eventually released after posting $ 100,000 bail.

The Basketball Wives star split from Barnes in 2014 after nearly two years of marriage.

The divorce was finalized in 2016.

Before this legal break-up was complete, however, Govan started to date Derek Fisher (pictured below), an ex-teammate of Barnes and a multiple-time NBA champion.

In June of last year, Fisher and Govan got into a serious car accident, with rumors running rampant that the crash was caused because Govan was giving Fisher a blow job while he was driving.

We cannot verify this story, however.

The oral sex part, we mean. The crash definitely happened.

Prior to this incident, Barnes drove to Fisher’s house and punched him in the face because he was angry over Derek’s romance with his ex-wife.

In her latest Instagram post, final to her arrest, Govan wrote the following:

Let me tell y’all something… there isn’t a person on this earth that isn’t struggling with something! I don’t care how much money, success, or followers anyone has.

We all have problems. You’re not alone. Trust me. Don’t let peoples filtered pictures fool you. God has equipped you, HE has prepared you for everyday. Each day is ordered by him.

You’re going to be ok!!! You will get through this. Trust in your purpose and don’t be afraid to ask for help.

A prayer for all of us.

Kody Brown and the Sister Wives Are Leaving Las Vegas, Moving to …

While fans and viewers wait for Sister Wives to return to TLC early next year, they can still keep up to date with the Brown family.

And that family is going through some big changes.

Less than a decade after fleeing from Utah, they are moving again — and leaving Las Vegas for …

In a statement released by TLC, the Browns announce that they are leaving Vegas for (relatively) cooler pastures.

“As much as we’ve loved making our home and memories here in Las Vegas,” the statement begins. “We are excited to embark on a new adventure in Flagstaff, AZ!”

We’re sure that Flagstaff appreciates their enthusiasm.

“We are looking forward to cooler temperatures, the mountain air, scenic views, and the slower lifestyle of Flagstaff.”

A lot of that sounds so great. And, after Vegas, just about any lifestyle sounds slower — even if you’re still a reality star.

Also, you know that the climate is unbearable in Vegas when people are looking forward to the cooler temperatures in Arizona.

As you may recall, the Browns moved to Las Vegas in 2011.

Polygamy is illegal in Utah.

While those laws may have been a well-intentioned effort to prevent abuses that sometimes go along with polygamist Mormon offshoots (such as child marriage), it can make life difficult for consenting adults.

So Kody and his wives essentially fled the state. They’ve sacrificed a lot in order to raise awareness and campaign for the legalization of polygamy.

Now, they’re moving again — into a Flagstaff cul-de-sac with enough space to accommodate Kody, his wives, and their children.

(Well, the 10 children who are still living at home)

As the good folks over at The Ashley noted, Janelle Brown celebrated the Fourth of July in Flagstaff, and spoke about it on Instagram.

“Had the great fun of attending a small town 4th of July parade in Flagstaff, AZ,” Janelle writes.

Janelle continues: “Maddie, Caleb, Axel, Savanah, Garrison and I ran away from the heat for a few days.”

Flagstaff is in the upper 70s today, which isn’t exactly cool but it’ll at least mean lower air-conditioning bills.

“This small town parade is popular,” Janelle boasts. “Bringing in 20,000 spectators every year.”

Janelle is already touting the local attractions for perspective tourists.

Janelle wasn’t done hyping up her experience.

“It was so much fun. Plus the temp was in the low 80s!” Janelle gushes, clarifying that this is “30 degrees cooler than home!”

Some folks consider all temperatures above 70 degrees to be slight variations of “too hot,” but others embrace the heat. Some people actually enjoy 80-degree weather! it takes all types.

“The coolest thing that happened was the huge cheer that went up for the wild land firefighters,” Janelle continues. “Both BLM and Forest Service.”

And she makes it very clear why they are particularly important at the moment.

“With all the fires burning in the West right now,” Janelle reminds her fans and followers. “They really are heroes.”

The looming threat of out-of-control wildfires sweeping through and destroying your home is enough to keep plenty of people from moving to the American southwest unless they have no other choice.

But the Browns are choosing this, and it might be good for them.

Certainly, this move will have to be less emotional than their departure from Utah.

At that time, they were fleeing from potential prosecution for living their lives as consenting adults.

While many believe that Kody is absolutely the wrong person to be one of the “faces” of modern-day polygamy, the Browns have given up a lot to campaign for a future in which the marital choices of adults are respected.

And we’re sure that they’ll continue to do so in Flagstaff.

Sister Wives Star Aspyn Brown and Mitch Thompson: Married!

Very early this year, we shared the happy news that Aspyn Brown is engaged!

The eldest Sister Wives daughter, whose mom is Christine, was engaged to her childhood friend, Mitch Thompson.

Well, now we have a beautiful update: Aspyn and Mitch have gotten married!

All things considered, a six-month engagement isn’t an especially lengthy one. But sometimes, you just know.

Besides — Aspyn and Mitch have known each other since childhood. 

The wedding took place on Sunday, in the mountains of Utah.

Aspyn herself was dressed in a white satin gown brought to life by some delicate beadwork.

Mitch wore a Scottish kilt, which is always a stylish but topical choice. In his case, it’s also honoring his Scottish heritage.

And then there were the guests.

Kody decided to follow Mitch’s example, wearing a kilt of his own.

Hey, they’re comfy. Say what you will about Kody Brown, but the father of the bride made a choice to dress in solidarity with his now-son-in-law.

All four of Aspyn’s moms were there, complete with fancy hats. (Who says that royal weddings don’t have an impact in America?)

Mom Christine, who gave birth to Aspyn, was absolutely stunning in emerald green.

Now, originally, Aspyn had stated that she was going to have Mykelti as her maid of honor.

After all, she had been her sister’s maid of honor in 2016 — we all remember the taco wedding, right?

But instead, Aspyn and Mitch opted to forgo the usual bridal party.

So no maid of honor. No man of honor.

But they did include the wedding’s younger guests — in the form of ten flower girls. That is so adorable.

(Quick aside — this photo was taken from the trip on which Mitch popped the question! Those are memories that they can both treasure forever)

There is another precious detail from this wedding that we would be remiss if we didn’t mention.

Mitch, as you may remember, works as a carpenter.

He built the arch under which he and Aspyn were married. That is a beautiful gesture.

(And, real talk, those of us who dread assembling premade furniture might not always appreciate how much work and love a carpenter puts into their work — we’re certain that this, at least, was a labor of love)

We hope to see more of this wedding than a single snapshot … and we probably will.

Sister Wives will return despite its ratings. Not every show has to dominate its timeslot for a network to consider it worth continuing. There are a number of factors.

So when the show does come back, we expect to see a lot of the build-up to Aspyn’s wedding.

And probably the wedding itself, since TLC’s cameras were there.

Weddings are a big deal for people and families, so they’re a huge deal for reality television.

For the record, though, though they started dating after attending a pro-polygamy rally, Aspyn and Mitch have both made it clear that they are planning on keeping their marriage monogamous.

Janelle Brown: Is She Leaving Sister Wives or Not?!?

Janelle Brown would like your attention, please.

The veteran Sister Wives cast member has apparently been reading the Internet and browsing through various celebrity gossip websites.

She knows what folks out there are saying about her and her marital/professional status.

And the TLC personality is now here to put a stop to the rumors once and for all.

We type, of course, about one rumor in particular:

Is she leaving Kody Brown and, in turn, is she therefore leaving Sister Wives?

Janelle attemped to address this chatter in May when she shared a selfie of her and her husband out on a date.

Wasn’t that sufficient evidence to prove she and Kody were still madly in love? Especially when she wrote the following as a caption?

I’ve wanted to see U2 in concert since I was 19. Finally made it 30 years later and with my love. So dang excited.

Yes, critics, she just referred to Kody as her love.

But the Internt is gonna Internet and speculation has continued to run wild in regard to Janelle’s marriage, along with her role on one of TV’s most controversial reality programs.

“@JanelleBrown117 You are in the hot seat on fb this wk!” wrote a fan on Twitter late Sunday might, adding:

“I’ve seen various “articles” about “Janelle leaving SW”, “Janelle leaving family”, “Janelle’s new diet plan just $ 19.95.” LoL. You’ve been quite busy.”

Janelle apparently appreciated this individual’s comment and sarcasm, responding with a very simple and light-hearted statement of her own:

“Haha  – so crazy.  Of course it’s all rubbish.”

Janelle Brown tweet

So there we have it, we guess?

Janelle is committed to Kody and will remain a strong presence on Sister Wives going forward.

Can the same be said of her other co-stars, however?

Tabloid cover stories for years now have ran anonymous quotes that claimed one Sister Wife or another was finally sick of her unusual arrangement with Kody.

It wouldn’t be hard to blame them if this were the case, considering they’re sharing a man with mulitple women.

Most prominent among those rumored to be departing the series is Meri Brown.

She was caught in a catfishing scandal in 2016 during which she thought she had found herself a new man… only it turned out to be a woman.

AWKWARD!

Then, just a few weeks ago, we reported that she has once again found herself a new man… only this time it turned out to actually be a man.

PROGRESS!

Still, as far as we know, Meri is still a key part of the series.

Sister Wives last aired a new episode on April 1, 2018.

TLC has not yet announced a return date for the program, which has already been on the air for 12 seasons.

How crazy is that?!?

That’s more seasons than Kody has wives!

For the record, meanwhile, if either Janelle, Meri or anyone else does in fact walk away from Kody once and for all, you’ll hear it here either first or second… at The Hollywood Gossip!

Sister Wives: Are Kody and Meri Brown Actually in Love Again?!

Who would have thought all those years ago when we first met the Sister Wives that this family would take us on such a roller coaster ride of emotions and drama?

Well, we probably all thought that — it was a reality show about a man with multiple wives and over a dozen kids, so there was never really a chance that it would be drama-free.

But still, the Browns have given us more reality show gold than we ever could have dreamed of, thanks in large part to Meri and her catfish.

That was a few years ago, but the family is still dealing with the issues it raised — issues like all the ones that exist in Meri's marriage to Kody.

There have been rumors upon rumors that their marriage is over, that she's leaving the family, that they want her to leave …

But are things actually looking up for them?!

1. Struggles

Meri brown with kody
Kody and Meri have been having problems for a long, long time. Like, all the way back to the very first season of Sister Wives.

2. Problems with Polygamy

Meri brown on instagram
Back then, Meri struggled with the idea of Kody getting a fourth wife — the first season was based on him getting engaged and married to Robyn, in case you forgot.

3. More Sadness

Meri brown from sister wives
She’s also always had a hard time dealing with the fact that she was never able to have another child after giving birth to her daughter while Kody’s other wives have had oodles and oodles of kids.

4. Uh …

Meri brown and kody brown
In one especially memorable moment from that first season, Meri had a private conversation with Kody about how she sometimes resented the fact that he had other wives at all. She asked him how he would feel if she had multiple husbands, and he told her the thought was disgusting. Because hypocrisy.

5. More Problems

Meri brown poses with a chair
As the years went on, Meri still expressed how difficult it was for her at times to share her husband, and she and Kody argued about whether or not to begin fertility treatments to see if they could have more children together. But for the most part, things went on as normal.

6. One and Done

Kody and his sister wives
Meri eventually decided against having any sort of fertility treatments, and she made peace with not having anymore children as Kody went on to have a few more with Robyn.
