13 Facts Facts about Camilla Parker-Bowlest You May Not Have Known

1) The press really likes her. She's apparently the easiest and most pleasant person for the royals reporters to cover and once yelled at a reporter from The Times because he'd spoiled Downton Abbey for her. She's known for laughing about unflattering photos of her.


2) Camilla kept her own house after getting together with Charles so she could have a place to hang out with friends, chain-smoke, be as messy a person as she wanted to be, and not follow royal protocol.Collapse )

ONTD Original: Ten Celebrity Endorsements that were certainly...a choice

Selling out is bound to happen in a celebrities career at some point. The question is, just how far will celebs go to make extra coins to maintain their lavish lifestyles while trying to maintain their dignity? 🤔 Sometimes they lose it long before ~in the Hollywood Hills — but a lot of times they lose it in the public's eye after an endorsement (but let's be real, most of the general public will laugh and then simply move on). As long as the check is cut, cashed, and in the bank several celebs simply don't care. Now I'm well aware that there are several out there but I had to narrow it down to ten here for time and sanity. So keep that in mind and let's take a look at a few celebrity endorsements that made us cringe, sometimes laugh, and were...a choice.

Mary J. Blige — “Burger King's Chicken Wraps”

Ok, let's get this one out of the way because I know people will bring it up in the comments asking where's Mary at? But let me make one thing clear, we're keeping the hateration, holleration in this dancerie to a minimum. You will respect Auntie Mary. She isn't just some OSCAR© Attendee, but she is a goddamn two-time OSCAR© Nominee. And that is something you will acknowledge and respect. Yes, we get it, fast food is gross, you only eat farm to table, drink lemon water, and people who recline their airplane seat in front of you suck etc. But don't look down at those who are occasionally rolling through the BK drive-thru in their Lyft or Uber drunk as hell looking for sustenance to get through and sober up. It happens. Maybe that's why the good sis Mary decided to do this, she's been there. Perhaps she had to fund some recording sessions or music videos, she has a mortgage! Cut Auntie Mary some slack. BK on the other hand, well, they should have known better.

That was...a Choice Rating:
😬😬😬😬 out of Five

YouTube Beauty Guru Jaclyn Hill is Getting Divorced

Yes, OP knows that we watched a star-studded fairy tale wedding, but now she is back to take away your dreams. Jaclyn Hill, a "BeauTuber" with 5 million YouTube subscribers is divorcing her husband Jon. They had been married for 9 years. There has been lots of speculation about the divorce in the past couple of months from YouTube gossip channels, however with this Instagram post, Jaclyn finally confirms it. She also has unfollowed her soon to be "was-band" on the social media site. To be honest, OP really knows nothing about her or her life except that she annoys Kim Kardashian.

Hasbro has trademarked the “sweet, slightly musky” smell of Play-Doh

- Hasbro trademarked the “unique scent formed through the combination of a sweet, slightly musky, vanilla-like fragrance, with slight overtones of cherry, and the natural smell of a salted, wheat-based dough,” citing its recognizability amongst generations of people. This is unfortunate for people who sell Play-Doh candles on etsy.

- They also just bought the Power Rangers, described as a “powerhouse toyetic property,” from Saban for $522 million.

- Hasbro is apparently really getting into IP since the demise of Toys R Us.

Phew! Taylor Swift can go back to writing regular songs now.

After Taylor Swift's concert in Pasadena, she told the LA Times backstage:

"This has definitely been my most cathartic album. After I finished it, it was like' — she exhaled heavily — 'now I can write regular songs again.'"

Some other tidbits from the article include:

  • The reporter says she sacrificed a formal education for her career but would earn a PhD for connecting with other humans.

  • "Swift gave a master class in the constructive use of the modern technology that's allowed her to establish and nurture an exceptionally powerful connection with a massive audience."

  • Some fans from the audience are invited backstage each night to meet Taylor in the "rep room."

  • Like during her 1989 tour, Swift hands out wristbands that light up during the concert and make concertgoers feel like they are part of the production.

  • She has been singing a surprise song every night.  So far, she's thrown in "Red," "Wildest Dreams," and "All Too Well."  Also, Shawn Mendes was a surprise guest at her concert last night, but there's no telling whether she will have more surprise guests like during her 1989 tour.

Meanwhile, she has been posting positive reviews of her concerts on her Instagram stories for all to see.

I guess the old Taylor isn't dead after all... what do you think her next album will sound like?  Will she return to writing songs about bleachers and sneakers and actresses who are better known for what they do on the mattress?

Prize for comic novels not awarded this year because no book was funny enough

The Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse Prize is the UK's only prize for comic fiction. The winners get a pig named after them (plus a huge bottle of Bollinger, and a complete set of PG Wodehouse novels). Past winners include Terry Pratchett, Helen Fielding, Paul Murray and Jasper Fforde.

For the first time in 18 years, it will not be awarded to anyone. There won't even be a shortlist. The judges didn't feel like any novel published in the past year was funny enough.

"After much deliberation, the judges concluded that although there were many amusing and well-written books among the 62 submissions, none fulfilled the criteria of making all of the judges laugh out loud".

"Despite the submitted books producing many a wry smile amongst the panel during the judging process, we did not feel than any of the books we read this year incited the level of unanimous laughter we have come to expect."
