The five friends of Meghan Markle (an unproduced Lifetime series if I ever heard one) can all breathe easy today, because they won’t be publicly outed any time soon. Well, four of them, anyway. I’m sure Jessica Mulroney would have been positively giddy to get the Google alert that her name was trending again. But we’ll never know which of Meghan’s five friends spoke to People magazine last year in her defense, because a judge has decided their names won’t be published.
The picture you are looking at above was taken from a video of Ghislaine Maxwell delivering a speech about the oceans to the United Nations several years ago. Which may feel like a random choice, until you remember how hard Ghislaine’s lawyers have been working to make sure testimony from a 2015 civil case was never unsealed. That testimony was her Heart of the Ocean necklace, and Ghislaine wanted nothing more than to make like Old Rose and whip it into the ocean, praying that it would be eaten by a whale with a gut full of very strong stomach acid. Well, Ghislaine’s wish came true, for now, and it didn’t require any ocean-dumping.
Britney Spears was scheduled to appear (via Zoom) at a routine conservatorship hearing this past Wednesday. It’s a standard catch up with the judge which happens every 3 months or so. Even though Brit Brit & Co weren’t physically attending, about fifty #FreeBritney protestors (with masks, THANK YOU) gathered outside the courthouse.

Inside, the judge (obviously I’m imagining Judge Judy) was finishing up unrelated, non-confidential business on the Zooms, and, once it was time for Britney’s hearing, asked everyone from the public to get off the call. They did, but then some people sneakily rejoined. The judge kept ordering them off, but they wouldn’t leave. So after 2 HOURS, the judge canceled the hearing. An older judge + technical issues = “Jesus, just reschedule the damned thing!”
Keanu Reeves is the Internet’s Boyfriend. He also happens to be the actual boyfriend of artiste Alexandra Grant. So yeah, he’s cheating on us. And that doesn’t sit well with some Keanu fans, who loathe Alexandra for having the audacity to enter an adult relationship with their prized Canuck gentleman movie star.
One such obsessive, a 67-year-old woman named Cathryn, has taken it to the next (terrifying) level. Alexandra says Cathryn, who has an “extensive history of criminal acts”, is stalking and harassing her. It got so bad she filed a restraining order.
Meghan Markle Filed Court Papers To Stop The Daily Mail From Publishing The Names Of Her Friends Who Spoke To People Magazine
Last year, five of Meghan Markle’s close friends anonymously came forward to “speak the truth” about their friend for a People magazine cover story. The truth being that Meghan is awesome. This was a couple months before Meghan gave birth, and the sources voiced their concerns about how the “global bullying” was affecting her and her unborn child. They also spilled pro-Meghan tea on her daily life, family drama, and what a selfless buddy she is.
Now The Daily Mail, the Snidely Whiplash of British tabloids, is threatening to release the friends’ names. In response, Meghan’s legal team has filed an application to stop them. Reminder that Meghan’s lawsuit against Associated Newspapers (the publisher of The Mail On Sunday and The Daily Mail), over a private letter between her and her father being published, is still ongoing.
Many moons ago, long before he was the Queen Bitch we know and love today, Elton John dabbled in heterosexuality. He even married a woman, German sound engineer Renate Blauel, in 1984. It ended in divorce just four years later, and Renate’s kept a low profile ever since. But last week she randomly re-appeared, filing paperwork to seek an injunction against Elton. Ah, of course, an injunction, which is, um… a… (wait for the Google) a legal action that forces someone to refrain from a specific act. Continue reading
