As we all know, Rebel Wilson has lost weight. About 80 pounds in three years. In that time, she’s also gained a fiancée, Ramona Agruma, a baby daughter, Royce Lillian, a loungewear fashion brand, and a new dating app called Fluid (its whole thing is not labeling users’ sexuality). Last night, Rebel officially launched the app at an event in Beverly Hills and invited The Daily Mail to promote that shit. But, soon, the conversation shifted to how Rebel “maintains her incredible figure.” Turns out, Rebel eats better, exercises, and went to a super-fancy detox program in Austria that taught her the human body only needs 600 calories a day. Riiiight. Continue reading
Two carpets, both alike in dignity
(In fair Hollywood, where we lay our scene),
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil shoes make civil rugs unclean.
It’s crazy how those words by William Shakespeare are still as true today as they were in 1996 when we finally understood them thanks to Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet. And this morning, as the sun rose over the detritus of last night’s Oscars celebrations, one carpet emerged victorious and unblemished by the unsightly stains of blood and mud and whatever it was that Fine Ass Jonathan Majors had in his tiny silver sipping cup. For reasons we may only understand after Baz makes a movie about it, after weeks of torrential rain, the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences decided this was the year to break with a 64-year tradition and pull the Red Carpet out from under our feet in exchange for a Champagne Industrial Rug. For revenge, Florence Pugh could barely be bothered to dress for the big event so she just brushed her ponytail to the front and grabbed a beige duvet cover out of the dirty laundry for the Oscars, saving her pink comforter for the Blue Carpet at the Vanity Fair after party.
Rebel Wilson is a proud Disney adult. Last June, when the 42-year-old actress was forced to come out and go public with her girlfriend of a few months, Ramona Agruma, she said she’d been searching for her “Disney prince,” but maybe what she really needed was a “Disney princess.” Now, eight months and one baby girl born via surrogate later, People reports that Rebel and Ramona are engaged! To absolutely no one’s surprise, the proposal happened at Disneyland. Rebel posted two pics to Instagram. In the first, the happy couple share a kiss as Ramona shows off her Tiffany ring. The second photos shows the pair in front of Sleeping Beauty’s castle, with flowers falling from above. My nightmare. Rebel’s dream. Good for her!
Does Rebel Wilson actually act anymore? Her main gig seems to be going on podcasts to talk about her life (and shilling her loungewear fashion brand… and launching a new dating app… and raising her baby girl Royce). Honestly, I don’t blame her. Being a movie star sounds like a drag. Case in point, ET reports that, during a recent appearance on the podcast, Call Her Daddy, Rebel revealed she wasn’t allowed to lose more than ten pounds when she was under contract for the Pitch Perfect movies. Ten pounds?! What would studio execs do if she lost more? Force-feed her lard?
Apparently, new momma Rebel Wilson has launched a clothing line with her partner, designer Ramona Agruma. It’s a loungewear fashion brand called R&R Club. OK, sure. Except, uh oh! This non-story got the “non” kicked outta it because of a sizing controversy. R&R Club’s first collection (so far it’s just a white hoodie and matching sweat pants) is only available in sizes XS to XL. Page Six reports that some of Rebel’s fans and fat activists on social media are pissed that R&R Club doesn’t include plus sizes. Especially since 42-year-old Rebel was plus size up until 2020, when she lost around 80 pounds for her “Year of Health.” Sorry, Rebel, but that’s just rude! No, not the sizing thing, the “losing a bunch of weight during the pandemic, unlike the rest of us, who ballooned to epic proportions” thing. Continue reading
Today, 42-year-old Rebel Wilson took to Instagram to introduce her new baby, a daughter named Royce Lillian. In the caption, Rebel thanked everyone who helped her on her fertility journey, including her “gorgeous surrogate” who carried and delivered Royce with “such grace and care.” So, what are our thoughts on “Royce”? Nameberry says its popularity peaked in the ’30s and ’40s when it was mostly given to boys. Now it’s back on the rise and being used for girls. I think it sounds like Rebel couldn’t decide between naming her daughter after her two heroes, Reese Witherspoon and Joyce DeWitt.
