Helena Bonham Carter Thinks Netflix Should Abdicate “The Crown” Immediately

February 2, 2023 / Posted by:

I guess Helena Bonham Carter hasn’t severed the psychic link between herself and Princess Margaret yet because Mags has got a message to share from BEYOND THE ROYAL VAULT (graves are for peasants, you fools!). She’s using everyone’s formerly favorite kooky aunt to deliver it. According to Variety, HBC sat down with The Guardian, and while she wisely declined to “contribute to the whole thing” surrounding Prince Harry’s memoir Spare, Princess Margaret’s eyes, ears and legs on earth burped up a message to Netflix that they should end The Crown now because it is no longer a “historical drama.” Oh, wait! Now I’m receiving a message from Mags! Please hold…. Yes, yes, sorry, OK, yes, got it!

“The Crown” Hater Dame Judi Dench Was Reportedly In Talks To Play The Queen Mother In Season Five

October 25, 2022 / Posted by:

Advantage: Dench. But at what cost? Yahoo! News reports that thanks to Dame Judi Dench’s op-ed that ran in The Sunday Times admonishing Netflix for playing fast and loose with the facts on its hit show The Crown, the network has capitulated and added a disclaimer under the season five trailer indicating that anything you might hear or see about, for example, King Charles III’s menstrual product fantasies in relation to Judi’s friend Queen Consort Camilla, is merely a “fictional dramatization,” of events that may or may not have occurred and been committed to tape for all the world to hear. Now, the only “crude sensationalism,” as Dame Judi so haughtily put it, Netflix can be accused of is leaking the fact that Dame Judi herself had been in talks to play The Queen Mother this season, but reportedly turned it down, in part, because they weren’t going to pay her as much as Imelda Staunton CBE, who plays THE QUEEN.

The Trailer For “The Crown” Is Here And Judi Dench Calls The Show “Cruelly Unjust”

October 20, 2022 / Posted by:

The fifth season of The Crown premieres November 4, and everyone and their QUEEN-lovin’ grandmum is in a tizzy. First, we heard that the Royals are nervous about the show covering all their 90s scandals, namely everything Princess Diana-related. And maybe they’re right to worry, cuz yesterday it was revealed that the show will cover King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla’s Tampongate. Yesterday also brought us an open letter to The Times UK, courtesy of an absolutely fucking pissed-off Dame Judi Dench. She calls the show “cruelly unjust,” and says she supports the campaign to add disclaimers about the show being fictional. Well, today, the trailer for Season 5 finally dropped, and there ain’t no stinking disclaimer. Watch out, Netflix, Judi’s comin’ for ya!

“The Crown” Will Recreate The Infamous Tampon Call Between King Charles And Queen Consort Camilla

October 19, 2022 / Posted by:

Back in 1989, King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla were having a horny little phone chat, when Charles said it would be “so much easier” if he could live inside Camilla’s trousers. Camilla joked that maybe Charles would get reincarnated as a pair of “knickers,” and Charles replied, “Or, God forbid, a Tampax! Just my luck!” Four years later, this conversation was leaked to the press, and it caused quite the scandal. But guess who loves royal scandals? Netflix’s The Crown! In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Dominic West, who plays Charles in the fifth and sixth seasons, confirmed that the show will recreate the King and Queen Consort’s infamous phone call. Princess Diana’s death, and now Tampongate? The makers of The Crown aren’t afraid to get blood on their hands (I’m so sorry).

Netflix May Delay Prince Harry And Meghan Markle’s Docuseries After Former British Prime Minister John Major Complained About “The Crown”

October 18, 2022 / Posted by:

Another day, another appalled British dude who should be sending Netflix a lovely gift basket as a thank-you for casting a relative hottie to play them on The Crown, but is complaining instead. As we know, The Palace’s ass is already puckered over what might be depicted next season as The Crown catches up to more modern events. And now, with the premiere of season five fast approaching, former British PM Sir John Major (played by Jonny Lee Miller) has come out strongly against a plot point that he thinks is going to play out in an upcoming episode involving King Charles III, formerly known as Prince Charles (Dominic West), whining to him that his mom THE QUEEN (Imelda Staunton) won’t abdicate the throne to him. I’m like, Sir, get your priorities straight. Jonny Lee Miller has actual lips! I mean, they’re still British, but they’re there.

“The Crown” Producers Are Stressing Out About Filming Princess Diana’s Death

October 13, 2022 / Posted by:

The fifth season of The Crown premieres November 9, and the Royals aren’t the only ones with their fancy knickers in a twist. Deadline reports that the show’s creatives are “on edge” about having to film Princess Diana’s death in Paris. At first I thought, “Shit, these guys really left it ’til the last minute!” But, nope. The scene is actually being filmed for the show’s sixth season. Creator Peter Morgan has confirmed the crash itself won’t be filmed, but the paparazzi car chase and immediate aftermath will. Ironically, one of their concerns is that real life paps will snap a picture of production recreating Di’s death and “create uproar in royal circles.” Everyone behind the scenes wants to handle the scene extra-sensitively, especially with the recent passing of THE QUEEN. Well, if they do fuck it up, big whoop. It’s not like the real-life Royals handled Diana’s death any better. Continue reading
