Why “The Crown” season 4 skips over Charles and Diana's wedding

- According to actress Emma Corrin, the show doesn't follow any plotlines that don't directly link to the Crown or the Queen herself; thus, the wedding is skipped but we get a glimpse of Diana's wedding dress.

- The same is said for skipping over the kidnapping attempt on Princess Anne in 1974 on the show's third season.

This is an excuse for a The Crown season 4 discussion post. PLEASE use spoiler tags for others who are still not finished with this season yet. Be considerate, thank you.

New Books Hitting Shelves This Week

A Promised Land

In the stirring, highly anticipated first volume of his presidential memoirs, Barack Obama tells the story of his improbable odyssey from young man searching for his identity to leader of the free world, describing in strikingly personal detail both his political education and the landmark moments of the first term of his historic presidency—a time of dramatic transformation and turmoil.

Obama takes readers on a compelling journey from his earliest political aspirations to the pivotal Iowa caucus victory that demonstrated the power of grassroots activism to the watershed night of November 4, 2008, when he was elected 44th president of the United States, becoming the first African American to hold the nation’s highest office.

Reflecting on the presidency, he offers a unique and thoughtful exploration of both the awesome reach and the limits of presidential power, as well as singular insights into the dynamics of U.S. partisan politics and international diplomacy. Obama brings readers inside the Oval Office and the White House Situation Room, and to Moscow, Cairo, Beijing, and points beyond. We are privy to his thoughts as he assembles his cabinet, wrestles with a global financial crisis, takes the measure of Vladimir Putin, overcomes seemingly insurmountable odds to secure passage of the Affordable Care Act, clashes with generals about U.S. strategy in Afghanistan, tackles Wall Street reform, responds to the devastating Deepwater Horizon blowout, and authorizes Operation Neptune’s Spear, which leads to the death of Osama bin Laden.

God Mother of Country Music Dolly Parton helped fund Moderna's 95%-effective COVID-19 vaccine

Dolly Parton donated $1 million to coronavirus research at Vanderbilt University. The legendary performer's donation helped fund Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine, which this week became the second coronavirus vaccine with a stunningly high success rate.

Donald Trump who has consistently downplayed the risks of Covid-19, has said history should remember him as the man who oversaw two “great” discoveries that will end the pandemic, taking credit for the early successes of Moderna’s vaccine a week after falsely doing so for Pfizer’s vaccine candidate. 45 didn't do jack shit except kill Americans, Dolly who actually participated in the vaccine research said, " When I donated the money to the Covid fund I just wanted it to do good and evidently, it is! Let’s just hope we can find a cure real soon".

TikTok superstars, D’Amelio sisters act rude to their personal chef while being served

The D'Amelio family launched a new YouTube series called Dinner with the D'Amelios, featuring in each episode a mystery guest.

For the premiere episode, which is trending at #1 on YouTube, they had make up artist James Charles as guest and dinner was prepared by chef Aaron may.

In the episode, the sisters came out as rude brats to the chef. While Chef Aaron was giving the rundown of the menu, Charli made disgusted faces towards the plant-based dishes, that the chef couldn't see.

When paella was served, Dixie made disgusted faces at it, since it had unrecognizable ingredients to her. Chef Aaron explained it was a snail, with the girl proceeding to make gagging and puking sounds in front of the chef. After she finally tasted the dish, she threw up right there. Finally asking the chef to make her Dino nuggets instead.

The other sister then reprimanded the chef for using those ingredients when cooking a meal for a child (the girl in question is 19).

Superman & Lois experiences drama behind the scenes

-Superman & Lois is the newest darling project of TheCW, that wont be premiering until early next year and yet there is already drama behind the scenes, starting with the writers room.

-Nadria Tucker was one of the lead writers on the show (she also wrote for Krypton which was a prequel series to the general Superman mythos) and after raising concerns about the shows direction, her contract was not renewed.

-In her interview Nadria brings up that she and others were trying to diversify the world Superman & Lois live in. There were suggestions of diversifying Supermans adoptive parents Martha & Jon Kent, ensuring that more supporting characters were people of color, and even suggesting that the general people on the street were diverse. After some of these suggestions it was allegedly stated that it was harder to have a larger population of black people due to the show shooting in Vancouver.

-There were also alleged MeToo jokes within the script that Nadria and some of her peers were not a fan and attempted to remedy.

-It should be noted that the first season major villain will be played by a black actor and this was a driving force to ensure that the only black actor you see on screen is not evil.

George Clooney covers GQ Magazine

He says that Falling in Love With Amal Changed 'Everything' About His Life

"I was like, 'I'm never getting married. I'm not gonna have kids,'" he started, adding he was content with his life, career, and bachelor years after his 1993 divorce from Talia Balsam. "I'm gonna work, I've got great friends, my life is full, I'm doing well," he said of his mindset at the time. "And I didn't know how un-full it was until I met Amal. And then everything changed. And I was like, 'Oh, actually, this has been a huge empty space.'"

A mutual friend introduced him to Amal in 2013. They wed in September 2014 and welcomed twins Alexander and Ella in June 2017.

Prince Harry & Meghan May Release Footage Of Their Royal Exit


The Mail’s Royal Editor Emily Andrews reports that Harry and Meghan are working on a project that “goes beyond the ‘inspirational family programming’ they initially promised for their $100 million Netflix deal.

“Instead, it will centre on the couple’s first year after splitting from the Royal Family, their new life in California and the reasons why they fled Britain.

“According to a well-placed source, the couple have video footage from when they left their Windsor home, Frogmore Cottage, for the final time and their ‘farewell tour’ at Buckingham Palace. Their representatives are thought to have pitched the footage – including personal videos recorded as they stepped back from Royal life – during negotiations with Netflix.”

The thought that Harry and Meghan might have been recording the goings on and inner workings of the palace prior to their bombshell exit may not sit well with the Palace
