royally obsessed

This year has been the year of the royals! I have to confess, while I’ve always had a basic level of interest in the royals, it’s this year that’s made me obsessed. Much to what I’m sure is the Queen’s displeasure, there have been extraordinary highs and lows for the royal family. The year started just a couple of months after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s engagement was announced in November 2017. An estimated 1.9 billion people tuned in to see them wed on May 19 at Windsor Castle in front of a star-studded crowd including Oprah and the world’s media – Meghan representing the start of a modern royal chapter. We were spoilt with the announcement of a baby in October when Meghan and Harry arrived in Sydney…

shock affair claims

HE HAS ENJOYED DECADES OF success with a side of scandal, and in a tell-all interview with The Hollywood Reporter, former actress Christina Engelhardt has claimed she and 83-year-old director Woody Allen shared an intimate relationship, which began in 1976 when she was only 16. Engelhardt, 59, revealed that she chose to share her story in the wake of the #MeToo movement, following a separate claim by Allen’s adopted daughter Dylan Farrow, who, in 2014, penned an open letter to The New York Times alleging that he had molested her when she was a young girl. Allen has denied the allegation and no charges were ever laid. Despite the illegality of their relationship at the time, Engelhardt says she takes some responsibility for continuing their eight-year affair. “I thought I could provide…

jada’s struggle

SINCE LAUNCHING HER ONLINE TALK SHOW in May, Jada Pinkett Smith hasn’t held back when it comes to talking about her marriage and family. On the Dec. 17 episode of Red Table Talk , Pinkett Smith revealed she turned to self-medicating during a low point in her life. During an emotional discussion with rapper Kid Cudi on mental health, they talked about the tragic loss of musician Mac Miller, who passed away on Sept. 7 from an accidental drug overdose. “When I looked at [Miller’s] circumstances I felt for him because I knew that could have been me, easily,” Pinkett Smith said during the episode.“I was the same way. In my depression, using ecstasy, drinking a whole lot, you know, and smoking a bunch of weed and trying to just find…

matty j & laura ‘i didn’t expect it’

CONGRATULATIONS ARE IN order for The Bachelor’s Matty Johnson and Laura Byrne who are expecting their first child together, due in 2019. Chatting to WHO, Byrne, who suffered a devastating miscarriage in June, says she is ecstatic. “We’d only been trying for a couple of weeks when I noticed I felt exhausted and in the mornings a little queasy,” Byrne explains of her early stages of pregnancy. “I didn’t expect to be pregnant so quickly, so I dismissed it. I remember, we were having breakfast at a local cafe but I couldn’t even stomach the smell of the food, and that’s when Matty suggested I go next door to the pharmacy and buy a pregnancy test.” When the lovebirds returned home, Byrne took the test. “I was just so overwhelmed I was in tears,” she…

former tv co-stars are married!

EMILY VANCAMP, 32, AND HER REVENGE CO-STAR, AND on-screen love interest, Josh Bowman, 30, were married in an intimate ceremony on Dec. 15, mirroring the fates of their TV characters, who played husband and wife on the show. The stars’ wedding took place on Harbour Island in the Bahamas exactly five years to the day after their characters, Emily Thorne and Daniel Grayson, were wed in the mid-season finale of their hit show in December 2013. Thankfully, this time around, things ended on a happier note – in their Revenge wedding, Bowman’s character shot VanCamp’s in the stomach – but real-life made for a smoother ceremony. The couple met and fell in love in 2012 while working on the show, which ran for four seasons from 2011 to 2015 on the Seven Network.…
