Trespassers Arrested At Prince Andrews Home

Police arrested two people near the home of Prince Andrew, the second-oldest son of Queen Elizabeth II, after receiving a report of trespassing on the restricted grounds.  Thames Valley Police have confirmed that neither Prince Andrew nor anyone else at his official residence on the grounds of the Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park were in any danger. A 29-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man from London were both taken into custody after authorities responded to a report of people trespassing near the home.   The arrests come mere days after police were previously called to the Royal Lodge on April 19th. The Sun newspaper reported that during the earlier incident, a 43-year-old woman spent 20 minutes on the grounds of the lodge after telling security guards she was having lunch with the monarch’s son.  The woman managed to get into the home, but was detained after asking a member of staff where Andrew was and saying that she was his fiancée, the newspaper said. Thames Valley Police said the woman was detained under the Mental Health Act.
*******They should detain HIM under the Mental Health Act!!!
*******Birds of a feather…
*****Charles has officially asked Andrew to change his last name!!!!
*****This is unusual for Andrew… usually, women are trying to break OUT!!!

Jessica Simpson Was Blocked From Dating

Jessica Simpson revealed that she believes publicists prevented male actors and musicians from dating her in the past.   She appeared on “The Drew Barrymore Show” recently where she sat down with the host to discuss her various business ventures including her immensely successful fashion line, the Jessica Simpson Collection. She revealed that her inspiration came from examining concertgoers’ looks while she was attending the live shows of a musician she dated at the time.  Barrymore cheekily asked if she could say which musician she was referring to, to which the artist noted that there were a few.  “I have dated a couple musicians, some under the radar that people don’t know about. We like to keep some secrets,” she said.  Simpson added: “Well that is definitely not being told. If you give me your phone number I’ll call you and tell you.”  Simpson famously dated musician John Mayer from 2006 to 2007. Her time with him was detailed in her memoir “Open Book,” which also discussed her split from NFL player Tony Romo. She has also been linked to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine in the past. However, the star apparently has more musician boyfriends than that.
*******She’s had more musicians than the Grammys!!!
******She’s in tune with what they like!!
****John Mayer said she was “sexual napalm!!” Does that mean his crotch was on fire later???
*****Guitarists love a girl in a g-string!!!!

Will Smith Has A Dad-Bod

Will Smith admitted he’s in the “worst shape of my life” as he shared a shirtless photo of himself on Instagram.  He posted the pic late Sunday showing him in a pair of tight black shorts and a blue unzipped hoodie that exposed his stomach and chest.  “I’m gonna be real wit yall – I’m in the worst shape of my life,” he captioned the snap, which he shared with his 52.7 million followers.  Commenters flooded the post with support.  “You’re Will Smith!! You can be in whatever shape you want,” British singer-songwriter Sonna Rele wrote.  “You’re a real one for this,” YouTuber Casey Neistat wrote.  “This is the most amazing post in the history of social media,” musician Questlove wrote. See the post HERE.
********If we looked that, it would the BEST shape of our lives!!!
******If Tom Cruise ever looked like that, he’d dig a hole, jump in and cover himself up!!
*******Will is on the “hot fudge and mashed potato diet!!!”

Marvel Releases New Movie Lineup

Marvel is hoping to get people back into the theaters following the coronavirus pandemic by unveiling its highly anticipated upcoming slate of movies through 2023.   On Monday, they debuted a new teaser trailer for the next installments in what’s been dubbed the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which makes up the roster of heroes and characters in the “Avengers” world.  In addition to revealing release dates for titles such as “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” and “Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 3,” the video also offers a first look at the highly anticipated film “Eternals.”   The video begins on a note of nostalgia, by showing a sizzle reel of some of the most fan-beloved moments throughout the franchise, including the climactic battle in the 2019 film “Avengers: Endgame.”  While the clips play, narration from late Marvel Comics giant Stan Lee discussing the concept of family plays in the background.  After that, footage from both “Eternals” and the recently-debuted trailer for “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” appears in order to get viewers hyped for new heroes joining the universe.  Eternals was first teased in 2018 but its release, like many, was waylaid by the pandemic. Now, in addition to the hype that was already at its back, “Eternals” can boast having now-Oscar-winning director Chloe Zhao, fresh off her best-director win for “Nomadland,” at the helm.   The video then reveals title cards for upcoming movies starting with “Black Widow” in July and going all the way to “Guardians” in May of 2023.  See the video HERE.
********Yeah…. we’ll buy a $20 bag of popcorn for these!!!!

Stevie Wonder Spotted Driving!

Stevie Wonder and his wife Tomeeka Robyn Bracy were pictured on a romantic date in West Hollywood.  On Saturday evening, they walked hand in hand into celebrity hotspot Craig’s.  But what fans couldn’t help but notice was that Stevie was driving a vehicle.  “Why is he sat in the drivers seat? He’s blind!” one fan wrote when images of his date emerged online.  “A blind man driving an autopilot car is like no one at the wheel…is this legal,” a second added.  “Love the man! He’s a legend, but would I get in a car if he was driving? Nah!!!!” a third chimed in.  It later turned out that he was testing out the autopilot function on his Tesla. The Tesla Autopilot is an advanced driver-assistance vehicle. Creator Elon Musk has previously laid out his vision for “fully self-driving” cars to be made available this year.  See the pic HERE.

Workers Search For Wedding Ring At The Dump

A waste collection truck crew and workers at a North Carolina landfill came to the rescue when a woman realized some of her rings had accidentally ended up in the trash.  Chuck and Pam Smith, who recently relocated to New Hanover County, said Pam was cleaning the house recently when she realized some of her rings were missing.  “I just was frantic that I couldn’t find my rings,” Pam Smith told WECT-TV. “But, I knew in my heart I had thrown them accidentally in the trash.”  Chuck flagged down the Select Recycling Waste Services truck, but crew members Elliott Holliday and Kendrick Grady had already picked up trash from 25 other houses since visiting the Smith residence.  The workers called ahead to the New Hanover County landfill and told workers they had a truckload of trash that they needed to dump out and search through for some missing rings. “We called and told them the problem,” Grady said. “We just needed a flat piece of land to be able to unload the truck.”  Kedar Brunson, who was in charge of the landfill on that day, gathered a crew of about a half dozen workers to help go through the mound of waste from the truck.  The search lasted for hours, finally ending just five minutes before closing time.  “It’s like we went through every bag. We went through, literally, the last bag before we found it,” Grady said. “It was truly a miracle.”  The Smiths said they are grateful for all the help recovering the lost rings.
*********They were so grateful, they bought the crew a six-pack of beer!!
********At least she didn’t throw her MARRIAGE away!!!

Cow Shops At Grocery Store

Shoppers at a grocery store in Britain received a surprise when a loose cow turned up in the parking lot and was seen attempting to get inside.  Steve Shanyaski, who tweeted video of the cow, said he was preparing to go inside the Lidl store in Royton, Oldham, England, when a fellow shopper alerted him to the nearby cow.  “I turned up at the Lidl with my little shopping list in my head and as I park up and get out of my car, this guy starts looking at me telling me to be careful,” Shanyaski told the Manchester Evening News.  “I’m thinking, ‘What’s this guy want?’ and he tells me there’s a cow loose in the car park — I couldn’t believe it,” he said. “There was a cow literally just running around, trying to get in the garage where they deliver the food.”  Shanyaski said he watched as witnesses attempted unsuccessfully to capture the cow.
********She obviously had “mad cow disease!!!!”
