Thomas Markle Still Hopes To Make Good With Meghan

Meghan Markle’s father is still holding out hope for a reconciliation with his daughter after years of tension.  A family source says that Thomas Markle Sr. is “getting up there in age” and would like the chance to turn his relationship around with his daughter if the opportunity arises.  “He’s frustrated,” the insider revealed to Fox News. “He’s lived his life raising his kids. He moved to Mexico to live his life in peace and not to be completely blackballed and outcast. It doesn’t feel good [for him].”  The source claimed that Meghan was closer to her father growing up than any of her other family members.  “He was an awesome dad to Meghan. For him to get heat and be portrayed as this money-grabbing bum is not fair. He’s not even like that,” the source said. “He did pay for her college. That is 100% true.”  Thomas has been known to speak out about his daughter in recent years after their estrangement became public amid her May 2018 royal wedding to Prince Harry.  The family insider claims Thomas fears to travel given his negative narrative in the limelight because of his tension with Meghan.  “He’s scared to even make a move to go anywhere or do anything. He moved to Mexico to retire and not be bothered. He’s definitely happy there.” The source also insisted Thomas’ past interviews about his daughter were not rooted in ill intentions  “He loves Meghan. He didn’t try to capitalize off of her. He had his own money despite people thinking he didn’t. I think he maybe wanted to look in a better light and she wasn’t defending him,” he said.  “He’s not doing it to hurt her. Who wouldn’t try to save their own reputation?” the source added.
********She’d love to have a relationship with her father… but he’s not rich and famous!!
*****If he wants to get next to her… he should start dating Oprah!!
*******Most people who want to tell you how to run YOUR life… have no clue about how to run theirs!!!
******Thomas should try for a job as Meghan’s gardener!!!

Legally Blonde 3 Update

Mindy Kaling says she’s working on the “first draft” of Legally Blonde 3.  She gave an update on the film during Tuesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live.  Legally Blonde 3 is a sequel to Legally Blonde (2001) and Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde (2003), starring Reese Witherspoon as sorority girl-turned-attorney Elle Woods. Kaling will co-write the new sequel with Brooklyn Nine-Nine creator Dan Goor.  She answered questions about the upcoming film. She confirmed she’s had conversations with Witherspoon about the movie and said the actress has never pitched an idea that she didn’t love.  “Luckily, Reese knows the character well and hasn’t done that, and so I haven’t had that issue. So far, so good,” Kaling said.  Kaling said the most intimidating part of writing the sequel is trying to capture “the voice” of the beloved first film.  “And also things like the Bend and Snap, there’s so many iconic moments in that, that we have to come up with our new version of that,” she said.
*******The next sequel to Legally Blonde should be called “Roots!!!”
********Has Hollywood run out of old ideas yet???

Chrissy Teigen May Stay Cancelled

Chrissy Teigen has decided to stay out of everyone’s lives.  TMZ paparazzi caught up with her, who told them she’s avoiding trouble by minding her own business.  “I have decided I’m not getting involved in anyone’s s–t ever again,” she told the camera operators.  When asked how long she could be a member of the “cancel club,” Teigen laughed and said, “I don’t know, it could be forever. I have no idea. I don’t know.”  Seemingly trying to move on from the scandal, which first began when Courtney Stodden accused her of cyberbullying, Teigen explained she is focusing on her life at home.  “All I can do is live my life and take care of my kids and family,” she said. “Everyone else can make their choice.”  She revealed other “members” of the cancel club have reached out to her, and “they’ve been amazing.”  “[I] feel like utter s–t in real life. Going outside sucks and doesn’t feel right, being at home alone wih my mind makes my depressed head race,” she wrote. “But I do know that however I’m handling this now isn’t the right answer. I feel lost and need to find my place again, I need to snap out of this, I desperately wanna communicate with you guys instead of pretending everything is okay.”
********Yeah… she’ll be back on social media before you know it!!!
*******Maybe she needs some meds… or maybe she needs BETTER meds!!!
********Should we build a special jail for people who get “canceled??” We could let them back “in” after they’ve served their time!!

Britney’s Mom Forced Her To Annul Her Marriage

Britney Spears’ mother, Lynne, forced her to annul her 55-hour marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander, claims divorce attorney Mark Goldberg.  The now-retired lawyer who advised Alexander says that neither Britney nor Alexander wanted the nuptials annulled, but were forced to do so by Lynne Spears and Britney’s management team.  “It was the mother interfering in and inserting herself into her daughter’s life,” Goldberg told the Daily Mail. “She came to Las Vegas, threw Jason out, and got him a plane ticket home.”  Goldberg says that when the young couple called Lynne Spears the morning after the nuptials, “all hell broke loose.”  In January 2004, Spears married Alexander at A Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas. The vows were annulled a scant 55 hours later by a petition that stated the performer “lacked understanding of her actions.” The pair, both now 39, had grown up together in the small town of Kentwood, Louisiana.
********Britney’s picture is in the dictionary, under the words “cash cow!!!”

Marla Gibbs Nearly Collapses At Star Ceremony

TV icon Marla Gibbs is “doing great” after appearing to faint during her acceptance speech at Tuesday’s dedication of her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  She is 90 and is best known for her performances on the sitcoms, The Jeffersons and 227. She is still working and recently guest starred on Young Sheldon, The Last O.G. and One Day at a Time.  Actress Tisha Campbell and producer Norman Lear led the speeches honoring Gibbs for a career that has spanned more than five decades.  It was about 88 degrees during the ceremony, and Gibbs’ son rushed to her side to help her after she closed her eyes and stopped talking during her acceptance speech, reported.  Gibbs’ representative told she is “doing great” and had a “great time at the after-party.”
*********You gotta give her props for even standing up at that age!!!
*****Of course, Norman Lear is older than SHE is!!!

Food Disorders:  Roseanne Barr-(National Enquirer)

“I had my entire digestive system removed, so I should look thinner,” 68-year-old Roseanne Barr said of the 1998 Fobi Pouch procedure, which saw her shed 150 pounds-which was nearly half her weight!  “Procedures like this alter the anatomy of the stomach,” Dr. Fischer said.  “Why not just put duct tape over your mouth?  This is not treating the addiction.  Who is she fooling?”  But the scandal-scarred sitcom star has claimed she now keeps her figure under control naturally-by “moving more and eating les.”

Hollywood Flashback:  Great Guns!-(Globe)

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are the Men in Black who patrol the extraterrestrials that walk among us!  The rollicking 1997 sci-fi flick originally was supposed to be set underground, but director Barry Sonnenfeld changed it to New York City-figuring jaded Gothamites were used to seeing alien behavior!  He used real locations that already looked out of this world-filming the entrance to agent headquarters outside a giant ventilation fan for the Brooklyn-Battery Tunnel!

Hugh Jackson & Deborra-Lee Furness:  Lasting Love!-(Us Weekly)

It’s all about chemistry!  When Jackman met Furness on an Australian TV series in 1995 there was an undeniable connection, despite a 13-year age difference.  Jackman has said he knew within two weeks that they’d be together forever.  Flash-forward more than two decades and the pair are still going strong.  In fact, on their 25th wedding anniversary this past April, Jackman revealed their “love has only grown deeper.”

Not Playing Nice!-(Star)

Nina Dobrev & Paul Wesley-The Vampire Diaries

Well, that sucks!  “I respected Paul Wesley,” the actress once confessed of her onscreen love interest.  “I didn’t like Paul Wesley.”  Four years after the horror drama left the air, however, the bad blood is gone.  “We hang out a lot.  We’re really good friends and I love his wife,” she said.  “It’s so funny how time changes everything, because I never thought that he would be one of my best friends.”

Denise:  At War With Her Landlords-(Life & Style)

A horror of a Housewife!  Denise Richards is being dragged to court by her former landlords after she allegedly trashed their Calabasas, Calif., rental.  The Bravo alum, 50, and her husband, Aaron Phypers, 48, leased the property in 2018, a few months before they got married.  According to the owners, animal lover Denise was only supposed to bring her two potbellied pigs and three dogs to live with her, but she ended up housing “well over a half dozen dogs and cats” and incurred more than $100,000 in damages during her seven-month stay.  “The conduct was despicable in that it was so vile….and loathsome, it would be looked down upon and despised by ordinary decent people,” the lawsuit states.

One Last Thing:  David Harbour-(People)

The actor, 46, stars as a Russian superhero in Marvel’s new movie Black Widow.

Last moment of gratitude- Last night.  My wife [singer Lily Allen] and I were just talking, and I was so grateful I’m not alone anymore.  I have someone I can tell everything to and who can tell me everything.

Last injury- I partially tore my hamstring on the set of Black Widow.  I wish it was a cool story about hanging off a building, but I was literally running, heard a pop and collapsed.  Very unromantic.

Last time I was out of my comfort zone- Hosting SNL was the most terrified I’ve felt in decades.  Somebody told me to remember how much you love the show, so I poured myself into how joyous it was.

TSA Reunites Couple With Expensive Diamond

Transportation Security Administration employees at a New York airport were able to reunite a distraught couple with a diamond that fell from an engagement ring at a security checkpoint.  The TSA said Amir Khan Durrani and his wife were flying out of John F. Kennedy International Airport and visited a coffee shop when they discovered the diamond was missing from the new bride’s engagement ring.  “My wife was crying hysterically as we did not know what happened, nor did we know how to approach the situation,” Durrani wrote in an email to TSA.  Durrani rushed back to the Terminal 7 TSA checkpoint, where agents joined him in the search for the missing diamond.  “Everyone was extremely kind and helped me as much as they could to locate the lost diamond,” he said. “I told them that I knew this was not their job.”  The couple had to catch their flight with the diamond still missing, but they arrived at their destination to find they had a voicemail message saying the diamond had been found.
*********TSA always returns diamonds!!! iPads, they keep!!!!
*********Of course, one of the agents “found it” in her pocket!!!!
TOPIC: Have you ever lost your wedding/engagement ring???

Crappy Crash

The Florida Highway Patrol said a section of interstate was closed when a crash involving a dump truck loaded with cow manure caused poop to spill into the roadway.  The FHP said the dump truck was involved in a crash with a semi truck at mile marker 198 in the northbound lanes of Interstate 95 near Rockledge in Brevard County on Tuesday.   No one was injured in the crash, but the dump truck’s load of cow manure spilled out onto the road, making for a messy situation for cleanup crews.  Traffic was being diverted from the interstate at Fiske Boulevard until lanes could be reopened, the FHP said.  See the pics HERE.
********Life is one big crap game!!!
******The people stuck in traffic said, “Whew!! It must be a rear-ender!!”
******The truck full of cow manure was headed to a local radio station… material for their morning show!!

Rare Opah Fish Found On Oregon Coast

An Oregon aquarium said a colorful, 100-pound fish that washed up in the state is known as an opah fish and is “rare to the Oregon coast.”  The Seaside Aquarium said the 3.5-foot fish, which is also known as a moonfish, washed up on Sunset Beach in Seaside, far from its usual home in the more temperate waters of the tropics.  The fish has a round, flat body that made for an unusual sight on the beach, experts said.  “They’re pretty cool fish, and we don’t normally see them on the shore,” Seaside Aquarium General Manager Keith Chandler told CNN. “It was pretty exciting for locals.”  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said researchers still don’t know much about opah fish, because they are normally found deep in the ocean.  Chandler said the fish appears to have been on the beach for less than an hour before it was reported to the aquarium.  “Unfortunately, it washed up not living, but we got to it before the birds,” he said.
*********It took a wrong turn in Baja… and the rest is history!!!
*****Stedman saw the headline and thought Oprah washed up on the beach!! 

Squirrel Causes Crash Into Historic Home

A teenage driver in Massachusetts last week swerved to avoid hitting a squirrel before crashing into a historic home built by an ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln, according to authorities.   Officers were called to the Samuel Lincoln Cottage at 182 North Street in Hingham around 6:35 a.m. on July 15, Hingham Police Department said. The cottage was constructed in 1650 when Hingham was first settled, the Boston Globe reported.   Police said the 19-year-old driver was in a 2014 Audi Q7 when she served to avoid hitting the squirrel in the road and “drove off the right side of the road, over the sidewalk, and into the front of the house.”  Half of the vehicle ended up inside the cottage. Residents who were inside the cottage at the time were not injured. The driver was issued a citation for failing to stay in marked lanes, police said.  See the pics HERE.
*******If she hadn’t swerved, she would have been charged with “squirrel slaughter!!”
*******Why did the squirrel cross the road?? He didn’t! He stopped in the middle and got run over!!!
