    From Across The Pond: Royal Weddings and Scandals

    Her Wikipedia page says, unless I’m misunderstanding how the punctuation’s supposed to read (or unless they got it wrong), that she retired from public life in 1996. Whichever’s correct, I could’ve sworn I saw her at the trophy presentation at Wimbledon more recently than that. I get that Wimbledon has rules (like the actual non-starter about Meghan’s jeans the other day), & their traditions are rooted in the classic British, “stiff, upper lip” attitude but I’m with her on the not letting the son of the murder victim sit with her in the Royal Box thing. She was probably just trying to do something nice for the kid (whether he liked tennis or not) & then the people in charge of the Championships wouldn’t allow it to happen. They should’ve taken those ever so prom & proper sticks out of their butts & shown some compassion to the boy, for once.

    If you haven’t thought of it yet, they went to the London premiere of the live action (actually CGI) version of The Lion King movie, in which Beyoncé plays Nala, the lioness who eventually becomes Queen to the eventual Lion King, Simba. Considering how fond most of the Royals (at least Charles & the branch of the family raised by him & his sons) are of Africa, I wonder if George & Charlotte have seen the animated original yet; if Louis & Archie will see it when they’re old enough; & if all 4 young Royal siblings/cousins will see this newest version of the film eventually?

    I noticed the Duchess of Kent(?); anyway, the wife of the older male Royal who usually participates in the Wimbledon winner’s trophy presentation, & seems to have attended forever, wasn’t there this year though he was (at least not today, as I saw it). I wonder if she retired from her participation when Her Majesty retired from her patronage of the Championships (they don’t call it a tournament) & named Catherine as the new Patron? By the way, for those who might’ve missed any mentions, that bow Catherine wore both days was in connection with the Championships & it was in the Wimbledon Championships colors of purple & green.

    This, likely sketchy, publication is blaming Catherine’s alleged weight loss on everything from an inability to fit in with the Royals after her marriage to William (which was 11-freakin’-years-ago & almost 12); William’s alleged recent affair with her friend, Rose Whatever Her Name Is (really... you’d think considering how much their father’s affair with Camilla hurt both boys & their mother while they were growing up/during the marriage, that neither of the Dukes would EVER think about stepping out on their Duchesses & children with anyone else!); to the alleged feud between the Dukes & their Duchesses since Prince Harry’s engagement/marriage.

    TV shows that have not been shown on TV in a long time

    CoziTV shows a number of old hour-long shows, mostly in the police procedural/detective, medical, & mystery genre. They currently show (that I’m positive of; there might be more): Emergency!; Hart to Hart; the original Tom Selleck version of Magnum, P.I.; Murder, She Wrote; the original Raymond Burr version of Ironside (NBC did a “blink & you missed it” reboot, which basically only borrowed the title, premise & lead character’s name from the original & took nothing else, like the setting or supporting characters’ names, starring Blair Underwood, a few years ago); The Rockford Files, & Little House on the Prairie. Until a week or so ago, CoziTV was showing Quincy, M.E. Right now it’s also showing Kojak & The Six Million Dollar Man. They also show 2 Adam-12 episodes, from Noon-1PM Eastern, weekdays, since that’s only a half-hour long show, even though it is a cop show. And they also show comedies like Frasier & the US version of The Office.

    From Harper’s Bazaar: Duchesses Meghan and Catherine to Attend Wimbledon Together Saturday The Duchesses, & Sisters-in-Law, are expected to sit together, in the Royal Box (as they did last year), & watch Meghan’s friend, Serena Williams, play against Simona Halep on Centre Court for the Wimbledon Ladies’ Singles Championship on Saturday. Catherine will return to the courts on Sunday with her husband, Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, to watch the Wimbledon Gentlemen’s Singles Championship match. Catherine & William also attended last year’s Gentlemen’s Singles Championship match.

    TV shows that have not been shown on TV in a long time

    COZI-TV just did a schedule change (I don’t think it’s on our cable system... yet... but I have the Hulu & YouTube TV apps on my phone & they carry it). Quincy, M.E. was just dropped; I think for Adam-12 reruns from 12 Noon-1PM Eastern. Those are followed by Emergency! reruns from 1-2PM Eastern. I last saw My Three Sons on AntennaTV (which my cable provider carries). But it’s not on there now & I can’t remember how long ago it was. MeTV, another similar channel, was added as a digital subchannel to 1 of our local channels in May. But so far our cable provider doesn’t carry it, nor has it been added to either Hulu or YouTube TV.

    I think it’s been said they’d been “living separate lives” for a good number of years without bothering to divorce. The sex scandal that got Matt Lauer fired from NBC apparently wasn’t, by any means, the first time he’d allegedly been unfaithful to his wife, & she was apparently well-aware of it.

    From USA Today: Matt Lauer’s Wife Annette Roque Officially Files for Divorce
  15. Right. Years ago, Heather Unruh was a reporter (& maybe an anchor) for the NBC station in Birmingham, Alabama, which I remembered her name from (I have a better long term memory for things that are more trivial than important, which is why I knew who the victim’s mother in this case was, & a “better” short term memory for the important stuff). I have family in that area, & I grew up watching the Birmingham, Alabama TV stations when we’d go visit my late maternal grandparents &/or my maternal-side uncle & his family. Plus, that was the professional field I got my degree in (Radio-TV- Film)—so I suppose I might’ve been paying attention to the names of potential eventual co-workers, if I ever actually got into that field. Plus, I had my favorites of who I liked to watch locally—which were mostly the same local newscasts & anchors my grandpa liked to watch (his house, his TV); I was able to develop my own favorites when he was away from the TV during midday/Noon type newscasts because of things like doing yard work, having doctor’s appointments, or because he went to the store or on other errands (after my grandma died), or if he’d uncharacteristically go to bed before checking the local late news headlines at 10PM. Anyway... I think she left the Birmingham job for the Boston job (but don’t know when). She was anchoring the news, at a Boston network affiliate I can’t remember (maybe WBZ?), at the time Spacey assaulted (or are we back to “allegedly assaulted”?) her son. At least I’m pretty sure the media reports on her son’s case have said that she was still anchoring then. I think she’s subsequently left broadcasting; but I think she also had done that before it came out that her son was 1 of Spacey’s victims (either through her/her son or someone else publicly saying so).
