the queen’s secret friend

Anyone who’s seen The Crown will appreciate that being the Queen is a lonely job. Sure, there’s nice frocks and some great bling, and you never have to wash your own dishes, but being the boss isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. How lovely, therefore, to hear that Her Majesty has a special friend. In fact, the Queen’s right-hand woman, Angela Kelly, is so close to the monarch she’s been dubbed her “second sister”. Apparently, the pair love nothing more than gossiping over a cuppa about family, fashion and makeup. Angela has worked for the Queen for 26 years as her personal assistant, adviser and curator of jewellery and wardrobe but, in essence, she is more of a trusted confidante. “We are two typical women,” Angela, 61, has confided. “I do…

angelina jolie happier than ever

They’ve been through a rough few years following their parents’ messy split, but Angelina Jolie’s kids were all smiles as they attended the Maleficent: Mistress of Evil premiere with their mum. Walking the red carpet with the 44-year-old actress, Pax, 15, Zahara, 14, Shiloh, 13, and twins Vivienne and Knox, 11, looked grown up as they celebrated their mum’s success - Maddox, 18, was absent due to his studies in South Korea. Ange has been focused on her kids since splitting from Brad Pitt, and while a source told Us Weekly Ange “will never get married again” after “she felt that Brad pressured her”, she appears to still believe in the power of love. “I think that real truest love pulls out your best self,” she recently told E! News. “It’s what…

chris vs miley ‘stay away from liam!’

Just months after Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus called time on their marriage, the Aussie star’s big brother has reportedly intervened to keep the exes apart. Radar Online claims Thor star Chris Hemsworth recently sent a strongly worded text to his former sister-in-law requesting that she leave Liam alone so he could recover from their very public break-up. A source apparently explained that Chris and his wife Elsa Pataky have been supporting Liam over the past few months but are increasingly unhappy with Miley’s behaviour and have requested she “stop playing games” by “texting him at random” and alluding to the marriage in her songs.…

lindsay lohan dumped?

She’s struggled to recognise the local talent and now an industry insider claims Lindsay Lohan won’t be returning for the soon-to-be-announced second season of The Masked Singer. A TV insider says, “She is being replaced.” While Network Ten have said the American actress has been working hard to familiarise herself with local talent, rumours are rife that she’ll be dumped next year, as execs are said to be worried about the negative publicity she’s getting from not knowing the contestants and her backstage demands have also caused some tension. “She was tricky with demands and had a complete lack of respect for time schedules,” says the source. Instead, a local – most likely Kate Ceberano who is The Lion – is tipped to replace her.…

the masked singer : lies exposed!

The extreme security measures taken to keep the identities of The Masked Singer’s contestants hidden have been revealed. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, not only do the celebrity participants have to keep themselves anonymous at the studio by covering their faces and bodies before arriving for filming, they aren’t allowed to tell their loved ones about their involvement either. “When the evicted singer returns to their family, they must account for their whereabouts with a contractually-obligated fib,” the SMH reported, before production exec Shaun Murphy admitted that exceptions were made, so some could “fess up to their husband or wife”. Only four network executives know their identities and the set is searched for hidden cameras.…

nicole wins over connor

It’s long been known that Nicole Kidman’s adopted children, Bella and Connor, followed their dad, Tom Cruise, into Scientology after the former couple’s split – and that since then Nic has had little to do with her only son and eldest daughter. So it was a shock when Connor, 24, was seen moving out of his home in a building owned by Scientology and into a new place across the street. “Connor moved out of Tom’s building last week,” Florida local Clay Irwin told Radar Online. “It is not a Scientology building.” What’s more, the move seemed to coincide with Nicole speaking about her “unconditional love” for her adopted kids, sparking speculation that her proclamation of love could have prompted Connor to take a very public step away from the controversial church. “What…
