    Miscellaneous Celebrity News

    The bane of celebrity existence, the National Enquirer, Globe, and National Examiner, apparently have been sold to Hudson News heir, James Cohen. I don't know if Cohen plans to have these magazines continue their vile ways or if they're being rebranded/rebooted/reimagined into something respectable. https://www.npr.org/2019/04/19/715050724/national-enquirer-to-be-sold-to-hudson-news-heir-james-cohen https://www.bbc.com/news/business-47985820 https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/18/media/national-enquirer-sold/index.html

    It was Charles.

    They're lying in the course of their whining too. Never do they mention Harry and Meghan are following in Her Majesty's footsteps. Nor have they admitted there will be a photographer on hand, it's just not one of them. They did the same thing before the wedding; whining about no access when Press Association had been selected to cover that too. Frankly, I'm happy PA got the tip again. Danny Lawson's photograph of Meghan entering St. George's Chapel was luminous; it looked like a Renaissance painting. It wasn't a surprise to me he won awards for that brilliant piece of photography. Yui Mok, who took the shot later called "Diana's view", won awards too. I doubt Arthur Edwards could have captured either of those shots.

    "Is there anything you want to talk about today, Mr. Stempel?" "Yes. I would like to talk about Charles Van Doren. . ."

    I never realized Georgia Engel was so young during her Mary Tyler Moore days. Georgette was sweet but could throw some pointed zingers. R.I.P. Ms. Engel.

    Pffft. Arthur Edwards used to chase Diana around back in the day. There are documentaries of him openly speaking of hiding in bushes and whatnot in order to photograph her. If I know this, her son certainly does. Telling a couple play ball with us or we'll "mock" you is called blackmail by normal folk and the great Perry Mason says never give in to that. Also, why no mention there "will" be a photocall a few days later but a limited one? Methinks this "sadness" comes from not being among the chosen few and able to profit. Word to the gossipmongers: I suggest you buy Kleenex/have handkerchiefs cleaned now. I strongly suspect you'll be "sad" around christening time too.

    Yes. This part I'm also absolutely sure about. I believe they were laughing, talking, drinking, having a good time without the kids, and not paying attention the way they claimed.

    I always thought the saying was "Nothing good happens after 2:30 (am)". Being up at midnight seems reasonable for the weekend to me. The McCann case has always stumped me. I don't know if I believe the parents did something to Madeline (I do believe she's dead) themselves. , But I do lean toward them having such a good time, they weren't paying as close attention to the comings/goings as they claimed they were.

    Wasn't this the son who had testified as a child his father killed his mother (or saw something that, putting the pieces together, was clear the father had murdered the mother)? IIRC, years later he went to visit his father in jail, wanted his father to admit to murdering his mother, Dad gave some sort of "It was an accident" excuse, son pretended to believe, but afterwards said Dad was still lying?

    Let's hope so. I don't think the incident has soured Mr. Stempel's twilight years. But (IMO), I don't believe the bitterness has ever left part of his spirit.

    StephJ is correct. Charlotte is the first not to be displaced. When the Swedes changed their order of succession in 1980, Carl Philip (b 1979) - born as the heir apparent - lost his position to older sister, Victoria (b 1977.) If the BRF had followed that example, the change still wouldn't have effected Charles, as the eldest, and his sons. However, Anne would have moved before Andrew (and Edward). If that had happened - whew! "Let the games begin!" .

    R.I.P. Charles Van Doren. Herb Stempel is still alive and probably gloating he outlived Charles Van Doren. The last interview I saw, he was still bitter. I believe Herb has outlived all those he felt had done him wrong. Now that's a dish eaten cold.

    ITA. I've posted about Sophie, Charles/Camilla's various royal tours, and the Swedish royals. I'm the very one who updated this forum on the status of the stolen Swedish crown jewels. But I will always call out the misogynoir surrounding Meghan because I have eyes and can see, including those who think they're hidden.

    They are getting pictures of the happy parents and baby. It's just that it will be a few days later and - most importantly - will be done by one photographer, one reporter, and one camera from the Press Association. This is exactly how it was done at the wedding. That's what they're really angry about. That they can't profit off the newest royal baby even though they've pilloried its mother throughout her pregnancy. But instead of self-evaluation, tabloids are acting as if Harry and Meghan are breaking royal traditions dating back to Arthur pulling the sword from the stone.

    In days of yore, Andrew would have been doing serious plotting, later to be dramatized by Shakespeare. LOL The whining from gossipmongers is amusing to me. At the time of the wedding, a British morning show brought over Tom Jr's ex-wife and grown kids to be commenters (later rescinded when Daddy Markle went down the rabbit hole). Remember how one of them pulled out a knife at a pub later? One of the tabloids paid Jr himself to wander around Windsor prior to wedding day and before security was set up and published the pictures. In New York, a nutter was stopped by security for screaming at Meghan. Others claimed they have attended Meghan's engagements and were prepared to grab her bump to prove it was fake. I'm sure a nutter was waiting for plans to be announced in order to mingle with the crowds. Or better yet, the delusional ones or a tabloid were ready to pay plane fare for Samantha or Sr to plea and cry during a photocall. The tabloids have played a large role in all this harrassement, so Harry and Meghan going old school is exactly the right thing to do. They're protecting their newborn, of whom the tabloids think no more of than a character in their various lies. The tabloids can call Daddy, Sam, or Tom Jr if they feel they "must" speak to a Markle. We already know they're going to get in touch with them anyway.
