CHARLOTTE RILEY WILL PLAY KATE MIDDLETON IN AN UPCOMING TV DRAMA

While her royal in-laws and family members have been depicted on The Crown and other television biopics, Kate Middleton is finally about to get a TV portrayal of her own. Charlotte Riley (Peaky Blinders, London Has Fallen) will be playing the Duchess of Cambridge in a TV adaption of the play King Charles III. The actress is “really excited” to take on the “challenge” of playing the royal, according to BBC. “Kate Middleton is a really interesting woman, particularly within the context of this play, and it is a challenge I am really looking forward to,” she said. The play, written by Mike Bartlett, follows an imagined story of Prince Charles (father to Prince William, father-in-law to Middleton) assuming the throne after the Queen’s death. “It’s such a unique project,” Riley added. “To be both modern and rich in verse and to play someone who is real but yet totally…

Carole Middleton, The Ultimate Helicopter Mom

How typical of Carole Middleton to elbow her way into her 32-year-old daughter Pippa’s first official public date with her new boyfriend, James Matthews. On Thursday night, Carole was to be found bringing new meaning to the phrase ‘gooseberry’, sitting in on a romantic dinner with Pippa and James at the expensive Chelsea curry house Rasoi, an established favorite with local Sloanes and the young royal set, such as Eugenie and Beatrice who have been known to dine here with their mother Sarah Ferguson, conveniently located just off their prime stomping ground, the King’s Road. It was a pivotal moment in Pippa and James’ burgeoning relationship; after dumping Nico Jackson in October, Pippa hooked up with James, whom she briefly dated in 2012, again. Exactly when remains open to question, but they have always remained friends, even after Pippa met Nico. They were certainly comfortable and close enough to spend…

Michael Phelps Was In No Mood For Reporters As He Arrived Back In The United States

Michael Phelps arrived back in the United States with his wife and three-month-old son Wednesday morning after nearly two weeks in Rio for the 2016 Olympics, where he once again made history by winning his 23rd gold medal (bringing his grand total to 28). As one could imagine, the most decorated Olympian of all time was pretty tired after the long flight, and — like most of us would in his shoes — just wanted to get home and rest. In other words, Phelps understandably had precious little tolerance for boy howdy reporters from Good Morning Arizona sticking a camera and microphone in his poor exhausted face as he tried to make his way through the airport. After trying to stay inconspicuous, walking with his head down and giving the universal wave off of “leave me alone” didn’t work on the reporters, who continued to follow him and shout questions,…

Rio delivers a simple, but spirited, Olympic welcome

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) – What it lacked in flash, Rio made up for with feeling. With a limited budget, the consequence of a biting recession that roiled preparations for South America’s first Olympics, Brazil laced its high-energy opening party for the games of the 31st Olympiad with a sobering message of the dangers of global warming. Graphic projections of world cities being swamped by rising seas set Rio de Janeiro’s otherwise fun and festive gala apart from the more self-congratulatory and lavish celebrations that Beijing and London wowed with in 2008 and 2012. “The heat is melting the icecap,” a voice intoned in the Maracana Stadium. “It’s disappearing very quickly.” But it wasn’t all doom and gloom. After all, nowhere parties quite like Rio. Supermodel Gisele Bundchen shimmered to the tune of “The Girl from Ipanema.” Fireworks formed the word “Rio” in the skies. The colossal Christ the Redeemer…
