Buckingham thought Markle’s baby shower was trashy



Palace aides “rolled their eyes” over the New York baby shower for prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, Archie.

According to the source, royalty members were horrified that something so common was happening in the house of Windsor. To the royal family, this event was a clear sign that Meghan thought being a royal duchess was about being a celebrity and not royalty, with the lavish gift bags, staged paparazzi ops and American celebrity attendees, further alienating her from the rest of royalty and palace aides.

The event was cohosted by Serena Williams and Amal Clooney.

Are baby showers trashy, ONTD?

Reddit still can't figure out who this 2000s celebrity is because they can't find the original photo

A follow-up to this ONTD post...

It's been over a month and the subreddit r/tipofmytongue is still unable to figure out who this celebrity is on a user's shower curtain. Here is the Reddit post, which now has over 800 comments.

It's easy to say it's Evangeline Lilly or River Phoenix and move on with your day, but the real trouble is that they can't find the original photo of the celebrity like they have with the others that appear on the shower curtain.

It's almost certainly a photo from 2000-2008. Who could it be, and can you find the matching photo??

Mischa Barton said she was bullied on the set of The O.C.

E! News reached out to Mischa Barton for an interview, where she talked about her time on the show and why she left.



E! News asked when conversations started about her leaving the cast, and she said:

"It's a bit complicated. It started pretty early on because it had a lot to do with them adding Rachel [Bilson] in last minute as, after the first season, a series regular and evening out everybody's pay—and sort of general bullying from some of the men on set that kind of felt really s--tty. But, you know, I also loved the show and had to build up my own walls and ways of getting around dealing with that and the fame that was thrust specifically at me. Just dealing with like the amount of invasion I was having in my personal life, I just felt very unprotected, I guess is the best way to put it."

She also said that they started doubling up on episodes and shooting became a lot harder. She said she was getting offers from big films at the time, but had to turn them down. More at the source.

Minegishi Minami Graduates from AKB48


Usually I wouldn't consider this ONTD post-worthy news but I thought there was definitely a post here about Minami when she shaved her head after being caught leaving a man's apartment in 2013, and there was quite the post.  She's also frequently brought up when people want to talk about how messed up idol cuture is.  So I thought maybe there'd be a bit of interest in a 8 years later update post!!

After shaving her head in 2013 she was temporarily demoted to trainee but wasn't forced to leave and didn't decide to graduate on her own, instead she decided to stay and stay and... stay becoming the last remaining member of the group's first generation.  In December 2019 she announced that she would be graduating from the group and a graduation concert was planned for April 2020 but had to be rescheduled to 2021 because of COVID restrictions.

Her graduation concert was held today and nearly all the OG members showed up for her along with other popular members and sang their old school bops such as Heavy Rotation and Ponytail to Shushu.

If you're wondering about the guy she was caught with he's the lead in a drama this season.

Wishing Minami the best luck in the future!!

Thanks to a suggestion from last week's watch party (name not revealed for their protection), we are watching... whatever the fuck this was meant to be. But let's just have some fun, bring snacks, and you can all hear the TED Talk I've been preparing to convince suburban mothers everywhere that Jon Hamm looks like a toad.

Synposis: The headstrong farmer Rosemary Muldoon (Emily Blunt) has her heart set on winning her neighbor Anthony Reilly’s love. The problem is Anthony (Jamie Dornan) seems to have inherited a family curse, and remains oblivious to his beautiful admirer. Stung by his father Tony Reilly's (Christopher Walken) plans to sell the family farm to his American nephew (Jon Hamm), Anthony is jolted into pursing his dreams in this comedic, moving and wildly romantic tale.

Join us tonight at 9:00 PM EST (I'll start the film around 9:05 to give folks time to settle in). Here's instructions on how to install Teleparty. Please not that Hulu does have its own Watch Party link, but to keep it consistent, Teleparty will be used so I will be sharing that link.)

CBS Drops ‘Bull’ Showrunner Following Workplace Investigation



The show’s writing staff underwent multiple departures after production wrapped for season five.
CBS Studios launched an investigation regarding those writers’ exits.
CBS declined to address questions about the reasons for Caron’s departure. 

Co-star Freddy Rodriguez, who played Benjamin “Benny” Colón on Bull for more than 100 episodes, is also exiting the show after a workplace investigation. CBS declined to comment on the circumstances.

Five past and present Bull writers (but declined to be named for fear of professional repercussions), say Caron fostered a disrespectful work environment during his four-year tenure. He expressed opinions they perceived as callous and it was common for him to berate the writing staff. Lessons acquired about craft were ultimately outweighed by the showrunner’s demeanor.

The show’s culture did not improve after it was revealed in 2018 that Eliza Dushku was harassed by Weatherly on the set of Bull. 

The series, starring Michael Weatherly, was renewed for a sixth season.

-Chris D'Elia originally starred in the film as the teams pilot but after sexual assault allegations came out against him, he was cut from the film even though the movie was finished at the time.

-They replaced Chris D'Elia with Tig Notaro who filmed all of her scenes separately in reshoots via green screen and flawlessly inserted into the film.

-Tig did not film with anyone she interacted with in the film thus the rest of the cast technically met her!

-Snyder praises Netflix for spending a few million dollars to digitally insert Tig into the movie in order to replace any trace of D'Elia

The Skins stars 'did not feel protected' while filming sex scenes



April Pearson, 32, played Michelle in the first two series. Laya Lewis, 29, played Liv in series five and six. They both spoke out over the way they were treated on set.

April claimed she 'didn't feel protected' when she filmed sex scenes. "At the time you're young and you don't know any better. You don't really know what to say, to speak out, is this okay… There's a difference between being officially old enough and mentally old enough."

Laya alleged that show bosses told female cast members to 'skip breakfast' so they'd slim down ahead of filming scenes in their bikinis. The female cast had to line up in bikinis ahead of season six shooting in a room with just them and the creator of the show. Laya was 18 when she first starred in the show, and claimed this meant she had more sex scenes than her other cast members.

The two actresses continued to claim that other cast members have 'felt the same' following the show ending.

Skins was created by father and son Bryan Elsley and Jamie Brittain. Their representative said: "We’re deeply and unambiguously sorry that any cast member was made to feel uncomfortable or inadequately respected in their work during their time on Skins. We’re committed to continually evolving safe, trustworthy and enjoyable working conditions for everyone who works in the TV industry."

Channel 4's statement: "It is very concerning to hear of the comments made. We now have a confidential 'Speak Up' facility available and widely publicised on our production call sheets for current productions, however, we take all allegations of inappropriate behaviour very seriously and encourage anyone with concerns to come forward."

Associated Newspapers pays damages for revealing Sand Van Roy as Luc Besson accuser



Associated Newspapers has paid substantial damages and apologised to actor Sand Van Roy for revealing her identity as a complainant in a rape case against the French film director Luc Besson.

In 2018 Van Roy expected to remain anonymous after she filed her complaint, but details of her complaint were leaked and reported in the French press, breaching her right to anonymity.

Associated Newspapers accepted that the publication of Van Roy’s identity as a complainant in a rape case caused her great distress and has agreed to pay legal costs as well as damages, in addition to offering an unreserved apology, also posted on its website.

Since the publicity around the allegations, Sand said her acting career was seriously damaged, and after losing work she eventually decided to stop acting. She is currently in her second year of a law degree.

She wanted to draw attention to women’s right not to be named after going to the police to report claims of abuse.
