Prince Charles Wants Andrew “Out Of Sight”

Prince Charles has reportedly ordered his brother Andrew to keep “out of the line of sight” and to stay away from Windsor Castle while his sex assault trial plays out in a US federal court.  Andrew has not been seen near the castle since the Queen stripped him of his military titles last month amid the allegations brought against him by former sex slave Virginia Giuffre, according to Britain’s Sun newspaper.  “He has been warned to keep his head down,” said a royal source, cited by the newspaper. “Charles does not want Andrew to be photographed every other day looking happy and waving as he is driven to the castle.”  Charles, who is having a great deal more control over royal affairs since the death of his father, Prince Philip, last year, is angry over his younger brother’s assertion that the Giuffre scandal was not a cause for concern when it became public three years ago, the source told the outlet.  Giuffre claims she was told to have sex with the prince by his pal billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein and convicted sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.
*****Andrew, being immature and narcissistic, reads this headline and says to himself: “Charles thinks I’m ‘Out of Sight!’ Groovy, man!!!”
*******Prince Andrew is now officially “the one we don’t talk about!!!”
*******He forgot the first rule of the Royal Family: “Don’t get caught!!!”

Something Smells At Harry and Meghan’s House

A horrible smell is said to have inundated Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s $14.65 million mansion.  Neighbors “disgusted” by the pungent fragrance have reportedly complained about the issue to no avail.  The scent allegedly comes from the nearby Andrée Clark Bird Refuge — a 42-acre saltwater marsh — which is among the largest wildlife refuges in the county. Sources told the Mirror that the water can become “stagnant,” leading to a strong odor.  “It smells like an offal that has been rotting in the sun. It makes my stomach churn,” a Montecito resident told the outlet.  Local officials say the stench could last through autumn, when improvements in the pipeline are expected to be finished.  “The odor issues are sporadic and sometimes they are worse in some conditions. I’ve seen lots of homeowners closing their windows when it wafts over,” Cameron Benson, clean water manager for the City of Santa Barbara, said.  “The Bird Refuge does sometimes emit an unpleasant odor,” Benson told The Post. “But it does not smell now, and has not for some time.”  Other reports surfaced that the stink may have come directly from the home of the royal couple themselves.
*******We know what it is! It’s their podcast!!!

Adele Promises To Return To Vegas

Adele promises that her Las Vegas residency would “absolutely, 100 percent” take place in 2022, after the shows were postponed at the last minute due to various problems.  Appearing on The Graham Norton Show Friday, Adele broke down the reasons for the late cancellation, which included COVID-19 cases among her team and delays in deliveries for the show.  “I tried my hardest. I really thought I would be able to pull something else together in time, and that was why it was so last-minute,” the musician explained. “I regret that I kept going with it until that late in the day, but it just wasn’t ready… It just would have been a really half-arsed show, and I can’t do that. People will see straight through me up on the stage, being like, ‘She doesn’t want to be doing this.’ I’ve never done anything like that in my life, and I’m not going to start now.” She added that it wouldn’t have been possible to strip the show down, either: “It’s Vegas — it can’t just be me on me f—ing guitar.”  “They’re absolutely happening this year,” she said, adding with a laugh, “I want a baby next year. I have plans next year! They better f—ing happen this year.” Despite that revelation, she refused to confirm or deny rumors that she is engaged to boyfriend Rich Paul: “As if I would ever tell anyone if I was or wasn’t,” she quipped.
********That’s weird.. she tells us everything else!!
*****Keith Urban offered to sell her a ticket to HIS show!!!

Katrina Victims Upset With Brad Pitt

Victims of 2005 Hurricane Katrina are decrying defective homes built by actor Brad Pitt and his Make It Right Foundation, with their attorney saying that they ‘believed in the dream Pitt sold them’.  Speaking out in a new interview with Newsnation on Thursday, February 10, attorney Ron Austin, who filed a lawsuit on behalf of the victims in 2018, said, “They believed in him (Pitt). They believed in the dream he sold them. Unfortunately, what they got is a bunch of broken promises.”  Pitt built ‘affordable’ homes for victims of Katrina in 2006, however, the ‘experimental’ and ‘environmentally’ friendly homes, that they sold for $150,000 each, soon turned out to be defective with mold-infestations.  While sources in 2018 said that Pitt had paid millions out of his own pocket to fix the homes, Austin says “there’s nowhere to turn” since “Brad Pitt and the foundation have closed their offices.”  Pitt’s own lawyers are working to take his name off the lawsuit since 2018, with a close source saying, “His attorneys have made it clear that he has no legal liability for the decisions made by others, but Brad remains personally committed to doing whatever he can to help resolve the ongoing litigation.”
*****What do they say?? “No good deed goes unpunished!!”
*******This is what happens to a lot of “woke” projects!! They basically turn to sh*t!!!
******Sometimes, there’s a REASON that it’s never been done that way!!

Wendy Williams Goes After Wells Fargo

Wendy Williams has filed for a temporary restraining order against Wells Fargo in her battle over access to her cash.  She’s asking the judge to order Wells Fargo to “reopen any frozen accounts or assets” and grant Williams “access to any and all accompanying statements.” She also wants the bank to be barred “from freezing any and all assets which contain funds that were removed and/or withheld” from Williams’ own personal and business accounts.  The request comes after Williams filed a legal letter in court, in which Williams claimed Wells Fargo denied access “to her financial assets for weeks without providing her or her counsel with adequate explanation or evidence to support its decision.”  In doing so, Williams said she and her family will face financial hardship due to her inability to make payments on outstanding debts and other financial obligations.  This all stems from Wells Fargo initially filing a letter in court, claiming it has strong reason to believe Williams “is the victim of undue influence and financial exploitation.” The bank claimed it took the dramatic step because Williams’ financial advisor “recently witnessed telltale signs of exploitation, including [Williams’] own expressed apprehensions, but also upon other independent third-parties who know [Williams] well and share these concerns.”
********Ahh… they’re trying to “Britney” her!!! 

Rapper Shot Outside Justin Bieber Super Bowl Party

Rapper Kodak Black was identified as one of four people who were shot or injured Saturday at an afterparty following a Justin Bieber concert in Southern California.  “That’s actually very very strange, this is not known as a wild area,” said resident John Juricek.  Multiple news outlets, including TMZ, said sources familiar with the shooting named the rapper, whose legal name is Bill Kapri, as one of the victims. “It makes you more on guard,” said tourist Alfred Willis. “it makes you put things away and makes you look around you and notice your environment more.”  Police were sent to the 400 block of North La Cienega Boulevard, between Beverly Boulevard and Melrose Avenue, at 2:45 a.m., according to Officer Drake Madison of the Los Angeles Police Department’s Media Relations Division. “They (witnesses) heard a fight outside, when multiple shots were fired,” Madison said.  The afterparty reportedly occurred at The Nice Guy restaurant, near the Pacific Design Center, where Bieber had performed a concert whose audience reportedly included Leonardo DiCaprio, Drake, Tobey Maguire, Kendall Jenner and Khloe Kardashian.

Oldest Wombat

A wombat living at a Japanese zoo was dubbed the oldest wombat ever in captivity by Guinness World Records after the animal celebrated its 33rd birthday.  The Australian marsupial, named Wain, was officially dubbed the oldest ever wombat in captivity during a ceremony Friday at the Satsukiyama Zoo in Ikeda.  Zoo officials said they marked Wain’s 33rd birthday in January.  Wain took the record from a male wombat that died at the age of 32 in 2017. Wombats in captivity generally live to be between 20 and 25 years old.  The zoo said Wain is in good health, despite cataracts in the animal’s eyes.

The smell is too good to resist,” IPC President and CEO Jamey Higham said in a news release. “This perfume is a great gift for anyone who can’t refuse a French fry.”  The commission said the $1.89 bottles of the fragrance sold out quickly on the IPC website, but social media users can still enter an Instagram contest to win free bottles.

Pig Wanders Into The Club

Patrons at a social club in Britain were treated to an unusual sight when a loose pig wandered into the establishment before being lured back outside with potato chips.  Witnesses said the pig wandered into the Easington Colliery Club in County Durham, England, just after 10 p.m. Tuesday.  Club regulars said the pig was friendly and approached them for affection.  Kayleigh Parkin, the club’s manager, said she was in her residence above the business when staff called her to report the uninvited customer.  “I live on the premises so I was upstairs, and the bar staff phoned me and said ‘I’m sorry to disturb you but there’s a pig in the bar,'” Parkin told ITV News. “They got some crisps from behind the bar and lured him outside with some cheese and onion.”  Parkin said the pig was contained at the club’s fenced-in garden and she posted about the animal on Facebook.  She said the owner of the pig, which turned out to be named Roddy, got into contact within 15 minutes and brought their pet home.
