How Did Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank Meet? It Was Love at First Sight

Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank are getting ready to tie the knot this Fall, but their love story began almost eight years ago. The royal first met the wine merchant during a ski trip in Verbier, Switzerland — where her family has taken annual trips to since she was a kid — and the chemistry between them was almost instantaneous. “[It] was love at first sight,” Jack said during their first interview as an engaged couple in January. “We met when I was 20, he was 24,” Eugenie added. “[We] fell in love. We have the same passions and drive for life.”

It wasn’t long after their first meeting that they made their public debut as a couple. In June 2011, the pair attended the Royal Ascot together, followed by a number of sweet date nights around London. Now 28 and 32, respectively, Eugenie and Jack are getting ready to embark on the next chapter of their lives as a married couple, and we can hardly wait!

Keri Russell to join Adam Driver in ‘Burn This’ Broadway revival

“The Americans” actress Keri Russell will join the previously announced Adam Driver in Michael Mayer’s Broadway revival of Lanford Wilson’s “Burn This,” producer David Binder announced Wednesday. The play begins performances in March 2019 at a theater to be announced.

The production will mark Russell’s first appearance on a New York stage since her 2005 Off-Broadway debut in Neil LaBute’s “Fat Pig.”

Russell will play Anna, one of four New Yorkers brought together at a funeral following an accidental death. Set in the gritty downtown New York of the 1980s, “Burn This” focuses on the tempestuous relationship between dancer Anna, who was roommates with the recently deceased Robbie, and Pale (Driver), Robbie’s sexy and dangerous brother.

Additional casting and design team will be announced shortly.

Before the announcement of Driver’s casting last December, Mayer was set to direct a “Burn This” revival with Jake Gyllenhaal in 2017. Gyllenhaal later opted to take the stage with a critically lauded starring role in “Sunday in the Park with George.”

Russell’s role was originated Off-Broadway in 1987 by Joan Allen, with John Malkovich co-starring as Pale; the production subsequently transferred to Broadway. A 2002 revival starred Edward Norton and Catherine Keener.

In addition to “The Americans,” Russell’s credits include “Felicity,” co-created by J.J. Abrams, who will direct Russell in the 2019 “Star Wars: Episode IX.” Also next year, Russell will appear in horror thriller “Antlers,” directed by Scott Cooper and produced by Guillermo del Toro.

Driver, currently appearing in Spike Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman,” starred in Rian Johnson’s “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” His breakthrough role on “Girls” earned him three Emmy nominations, and his stage credits include Broadway’s “Man and Boy and Mrs. Warren’s Profession.” He appeared Off-Broadway in “Look Back in Anger” and “Angels in America.”

Producer Binder’s credits include the Tony-winning “Hedwig and the Angry Inch,” the revival of John Steinbeck’s “Of Mice and Men” starring James Franco and Chris O’Dowd and “A Raisin in the Sun” starring Sean Combs, Phylicia Rashad and Audra McDonald.

TJ Miller denies ‘Silicon Valley’ bullying allegations

TJ Miller thinks his erstwhile “Silicon Valley” co-star Alice Wetterlund’s bullying allegations were a publicity stunt.

Last month, Wetterlund, 37, lashed out at Miller, 37, on Twitter calling him “a bully and petulant brat” and the set of HBO comedy “toxic and weird.”

Miller vehemently denied intentionally bullying the actress and alleged that she was a problem on set herself.

“She may have had that experience, but it’s … just people trying to get into the headlines,” Miller told “The Jim and Sam Show” on Wednesday. “It was not my experience that anyone was bullying her. Truthfully, I felt like it was difficult to work with her because she kept interrupting Zach Woods … during takes, even when she was off-camera,” Miller added. “I don’t think anyone was bullying her … but obviously there was a of disconnect, because now she’s saying these things about me and about the all-male cast of ‘Silicon Valley.’ ”

He added, “I wouldn’t have expected her to say something like that … If anything, she left and I felt like … I shouldn’t be saying it, but I find this interesting: I thought they were a little meanspirited how they brought her back for just a quick scene and then said, ‘Nah, forget her, nevermind.’”

At the time of Wetterlund’s tweets, HBO told Page Six in a statement, “While this is the first time we have heard Alice Wetterlund comment on her experiences on ‘Silicon Valley,’ we are disappointed to learn of her concerns. HBO and the producers have always taken very seriously our responsibility to create a welcoming and congenial environment for everyone who works on the show.”

Miller, who said he was shocked at the accusations, believes that Wetterlund represents a part of a larger problem, in that society is “looking for villains” in the post-Trump world, and that he’s not actually a villain, but a victim.

“I understand her perspective, but she was kind of being mean by sort attacking me and calling me names, calling out all of the people on ‘Silicon Valley,’ and just like, calling out the fact that we were all men and because we’re all men that we’re s–ty and we created this toxic work environment, all that kind of stuff,” he said. “So OK, so what happens? So she’s being mean to the people who were mean to her, and people get behind that? And there’s some sort of justice there?”

“It’s just a confusing time right now,” Miller said. “There’s a lot of anger, and people don’t know where to fire.”

Miller announced he was leaving “Silicon Valley” in May 2017.

While it was initially reported to be a mutual decision between the seemingly troubled comedian and the network, reports later suggested that Miller’s “explosive” and unpredictable on-set behavior let to his ouster.

WWE SummerSlam: How To Watch The Biggest Party Of Summer, Full Card & More Info

It wouldn’t be summer without the WWE. SummerSlam is about to go down, so get the info on how to watch all your favorite Superstars, who is and ISN’T going, and more need-to-know info.

For the fourth year in a row, the WWE will bring the party of the summer to Brooklyn. The Superstars of World Wrestling Entertainment will go toe-to-toe at the Barclays Center for SummerSlam on Aug. 19. Also, for the fourth year in a row, Brock Lesnar, 41, will be in the main event, as he defends his Universal championship against Roman Reigns, 33. After failing to win it at last year’s SummerSlam, at WrestleMania 34, and at The Greatest Royal Rumble, will this be Roman’s moment? Before the show goes down, get the 411 on this sports entertainment extravaganza.

SummerSlam is on Aug. 19 at 7:00 PM ET on the WWE Network. Get ready for a long, long night. While it hasn’t been officially announced yet, the WWE will likely hold a SummerSlam kickoff show at 5:00 PM ET / 2:00 PM ET. The official show starts two hours later, and if the past couple of years are any indication, it won’t get done until around 11:30 PM ET. From pre-show to finish, it could be a six-to-seven hour affair, so be sure you have plenty of snacks. As for how to watch it, the WWE Network is the main method, though the show is available on Pay-Per-View.

Big Dogs, Goats and Monsters – oh my! As mentioned, Brock faces Roman in the main event for the second consecutive year. As for who leaves SummerSlam as the Universal champ, that remains to be seen. Money In The Bank winner Braun Strowman, 34, puts his MITB briefcase (and the chance to challenge for a Universal title match anytime, anywhere) up for grabs against Kevin Owens, 34. Could either man capitalize on a weakened Brock/Roman at the end of the night? Along with those two massive matches, Daniel Bryan, 37, returns to wrestle at SummerSlam for the first time since 2013. He takes on his longtime rival, The Miz, 37. One of the other most highly anticipated matches sees Ronda Rousey, 31, challenge Alexa Bliss, 27, for the Raw Women’s Championship.

Oh, and for some reason, WWE’s Elias, 30, is holding a pre-SummerSlam concert at NYC’s Gramercy Theater. Yes, this is real.

Wait, where’s John Cena? Or the Deadman? For the first time since 1990, two of the WWE’s biggest stars will not be on SummerSlam. John Cena, 41, and The Undertaker, 53, are not scheduled to appear. 1990 was the last time SummerSlam – arguably the WWE’s second biggest event – didn’t feature either of these two titans of the ring, per Forbes. Both men were last seen at The Greatest Royal Rumble in April 2018.

While it’s unclear if Taker – who is practically retired – will ever return to the ring, Cena’s expected to appear at the WWE’s Sept. 1 event in Shangai, China. The WWE has been advertising him as part of a six-man tag team match, joining Bobby Lashley and Finn Balor to take on Baron Corbin, Elias and Jinder Mahal. Supposedly, John will debut a brand new “Sixth Move Of Doom” at the event.

Even though Cena and Taker won’t be there, there’s a lot of action to behold. Check out the full card below:

Rusev and Lana vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega

Singles match for the WWE Cruiserweight Championship
Cedric Alexander (c) vs. Drew Gulak

Finn Bálor vs. Baron Corbin

Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz

Cardi B Sings Her Own Mommy Version Of Drake’s ‘In My Feelings’ To Baby Kulture

Cardi B channeled Drake to share a sweet musical moment with baby Kulture on her Instagram page after alleged child services drama. Check out the adorable video!

Cardi B, 25, gave fans an up close and personal look into her life as a new mom to 5-week-old Kulture. She posted a video Aug. 15 to her Instagram showing her leaning over her daughter’s crib doing a sweet momma cover of Drake’s “In My Feelings”. Cardi shakes her booty while singing, “Kulture, do you love me? I’m your mommy, and I birthed ya and I need ya” and then closes it out with some lovely baby talk. Fans gushed over the video with one fan writing, “This is the cutest thing ever!!!” and another saying, “All that loving, she’s a lucky baby girl baby bardi.”

Cardi’s magical mommy moment comes two days after her Aug. 13 online spat with a Nicki Minaj fan, which led to a follower claiming to have called Child Protective Services on the New York rapper. When the beef started to escalate, Cardi B allegedly said – according to a screen shot, “F**k a @ I’m dropping my adress [sic] is I’m in Atlanta in Mean studios wassup? PULL UP you claiming I’m p***y? I’m giving you a LOCATION any of ya in ATL? Cause im [sic] here and i drop my baby so i can fight RIGHT NOW !!!!”

It isn’t clear whether or not a formal complaint was filed against Cardi but, either way, it left the “Bodak Yellow” rapper wounded. Cardi was crushed and even brought to tears over the whole ordeal, a friend told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. The pal said that, “Cardi has not been contacted by Child Protective Services and she is not expecting to hear from them either. But this has still shaken her to her core. Just the idea of the authorities coming to do a check on her is scary.” Since the Instagram dust up, Cardi has split her time between mommy duties and recording in the studio.

I really don’t wanna go to the studio today 😩

A post shared by CARDIVENOM (@iamcardib) on

What’s very clear is that Cardi’s devotion is so intense, she dropped out of Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic tour because she couldn’t stand leaving baby Kulture behind. She announced her decision on Instagram on July 26, telling fans, “I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that 6 weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically.” She later added, “Not only am I not ready physically, I’m not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road.” As for now, we’ll just have to catch glimpses of the rapper serenading Kulture. Keep ’em coming Cardi!

Inside Mario Singer’s on-again-off-again relationship

Ramona Singer’s ex husband Mario is back together with his mistress-turned-girlfriend — but their relationship isn’t out of the woods yet.

“He sees Kasey [Dexter] a few times a week,” an insider told Page Six on Wednesday.

“They spent the weekend together for her birthday. It was nice. They had a good time.”

The insider explained that “they obviously still care about each other” but “he can’t get past the cheating. They’ll spend days together and then he’ll bring it up and they’ll fight.”

Kasey, 37, began dating Mario, 64, in 2013 while he was still married to “Real Housewives of New York” star Ramona, 61. Ramona and Mario split in 2014 and their divorce was finalized in 2016. The couple seems to be on good terms, as Ramona appeared to be on the phone with him on the new “RHONY” reunion trailer.

Meanwhile, history repeated itself and Kasey had an affair in November. Mario found out about it the following month and evicted her out of their joint home shortly after. She seemed to have moved on with Christie Brinkley’s ex Peter Cook, but their relationship was short-lived.

“She hasn’t heard from Peter,” the insider told us. “She wished him a happy Fourth of July but he never got back to her.”

We’re also told Kasey recently got an account executive gig with a yacht rental company.

At This Time 'RHONJ' Star Joe Giudice Does Not Have A Cause To Stop His Deportation Proceedings

Homeland Security will continue the hearings to send Giudice back to Italy.

Things are not looking up for RHONJ star Joe Giudice as his request to dispatch with the United States government’s deportation proceedings was unsuccessful, and the Department of Homeland Security will continue their attempt to deport the Italian citizen. And added to that bad news, Giudice’s wife Teresa did not show up to support him, and he returned to prison to await a September hearing.

Joe Giudice and his lawyers attempted to mount a case to get the deportation matter dropped so he can stay in the United States after he serves his prison sentence, but that didn’t work out as planned, says Radar Online. Teresa Giudice claimed she wasn’t attending the meeting allegedly because it would be proforma and taken care of quickly.

But Homeland Security is going full speed ahead with the deportation process.

“Homeland Security claimed the star did not provide ‘enough evidence’ to prove he should remain in the country with his famous wife and four daughters.”

This seemingly caught Giudice and his team off guard and they asked for some additional time to prove their case.

“Judge Ellington ruled that Giudice and his counsel could take more time to collect any possible evidence, and the next hearing was scheduled for September 5.”

This will be the last opportunity Joe Giudice has to submit additional information before the final decision is made. Radar Online says that an immigration lawyer not involved in the case said that that there is nearly a 100 percent chance that Joe will be deported.

Sources close to Teresa Giudice say that the whole matter is stressful and that’s why she’s avoiding the hearings.

“Teresa is saying that she isn’t going to court for the hearing. She just can’t take the stress, and she believes nothing will happen anyway, so she doesn’t need to be there.”

The Justice Department says that they already have Joe Giudice in the pipeline for deportation.

“[Giudice is in] removal proceedings” as a result of his fraud crimes. They added that Giudice is “in deportation proceedings while he’s in custody. ICE has lodged a detainer, and he is in removal proceedings.”

The Giudice daughters have been to visit their father in prison, but Teresa has been avoiding the prison visits and opting to stay at the shore.

“Teresa spends all her time down at the shore. She doesn’t spend it with Joe. Teresa has never admitted Joe is going to get deported. She lives in a fantasy world. She just believes everything is going to be ok.”

Joe Giudice has another court date next month.

Lindsay Lohan’s stepmother won’t be charged for domestic battery

BOCA RATON, Fla. — Florida prosecutors have decided not to file domestic battery charges against the stepmother of actress Lindsay Lohan.

Kate Major Lohan was arrested July 26 after her husband told Boca Raton police that she threw a glass candleholder at him during a fight over a cellphone. Michael Lohan said the candleholder smashed against a palm tree and shards of glass cut his left forearm.

According to a Palm Beach Post report, court records show prosecutors decided not to file charges Friday against the 35-year-old Lohan because of insufficient evidence and an uncooperative victim.

Michael Lohan is the actress’ father. Both he and his wife have faced previous allegations of domestic abuse stemming from arguments.

Dream Kardashian, 1: Who Does Rob & Blac Chyna’s Little One Look Like? — See New Pic

This proud papa has been posting tons of new pics of his baby girl lately — and she looks SO similar to a certain someone. Can you guess which parent Dream takes after?

What a doll! We knew that Rob Kardashian, 31, and Blac Chyna, 30, had a little cutie on their hands, but every time we see a photo of Dream Kardashian, 1, we fall more and more in love with their baby girl. So thank goodness Rob has been on a Twitter-posting spree lately! We can’t even fault him for missing his younger sister’s 21st birthday bash last week because it’s clear he’s been squeezing in tons of daddy/daughter time — and who could fault the first-time father for that? The latest photo, which he captioned simply with two angel emojis, shows Dream with a big ol’ grin on her face. Even the fact that she’s holding her hand up to her mouth can’t hide it! Her sweet face is framed by her gorgeous natural curls and she’s got a black tank top on. Tell us she doesn’t look just like her momma here, we dare you! The older she gets, the more uncanny the similarities become.

Whether she’s photographed on swings or in a stroller, it seems like Dream always has a smile on her face. She’s like the happiest little girl in the world! Rob must be a great dad. He’s been co-parenting his baby girl with his ex, and we’re so relieved that all seems to be going well on that front after their intense custody battle. The new dad even seems to be doing better health-wise since welcoming Dream to the world, losing a lot of weight. A source close to the Kardashian brother told Hollywoodlife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Getting fit and healthy and getting his issues under control is all for Dream. Rob wants her to be proud of him and he wants to live a long and healthy life for her. Sure he wants to look hot again with his shirt off, but his number one body goal is just to be able to be healthy for his baby girl.”

Sounds like staying away from the cameras and hanging out with Dream has been a win/win for Rob! That being said, Kris Jenner did tease that her son would show up more in season 16 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

We hope that means Dream’s smiling self will be making appearances as well! There’s nothing like her happy little face to brighten up any day. A Twitter pic is one thing, but a few minutes on the reality show? Even better!

Malavika’s Mumbaistan: A Hero and a Captain

A Hero and a Captain
How many people can boast of growing up next door to a real life hero? By any standards, the swashbuckling Rustom Captain, India’s first civilian helicopter pilot, was already a legend even while we had been kids, growing up in Juhu. With movie star good looks and a personality to match, the Captain, who celebrated his 90th birthday last month, had carved out a distinguished career for himself, being the first pilot of choice entrusted with flying not only India’s Prime Ministers and Presidents, but also the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and the Beatles! Indeed, pictures showing him as a dashing young man, flying Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru and Morarji Desai in his Hiller UH12B from Nariman Point to the Vatrna Dam in 1953, and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and John Lennon in 1968, are of archival importance. “Paul Saltzman, previously married to film-maker Deepa Mehta, is making a documentary on the 50th anniversary of the Beatles visit to Rishikesh and has interviewed Rustom for the film – earlier this year in Toronto,” said the Captain’s vivacious wife, Anita Jean Captain, whose own Mumbai-based family was closely connected to the development of civil aviation (as they were with cinemas) across the country. Having spent many decades in Canada, the Captains were in Goa, where Anita had organised a celebration worthy of the legendary Captain, in the company of his doting children grandchildren and great grandchildren, last month. In fact his tryst with history continues. “This August 14 marked 71 years since his first solo flight,” informed Anita. “It is significant that Rustom’s unique place in Indian aviation as and many other landmarks – or I should say ‘air marks’ gained his own freedom of the skies on the eve of his country’s independence on 15th August 1947.” As we were saying how many people can boast of growing up next door to a real life hero?

Sofa So Good

By now every sentient being on the planet has got the skinny on the big Bolly bash at Manish Malhotra’s on Tuesday night: who was there and who wore what. The designer, who was the first to forge a link between fashion and Bollywood, when he made legends like Sridevi and Madhuri dazzle on screen in outfits that were not only beautiful but au courant, too, is as expected, a great favourite with the industry’s leading ladies and as always, there was wall-to-wall youth glamor and beauty wherever one looked at the party. Except of course, on the sofa, where our source, the Bollywood Aunty, swore she had parked herself that night. Hitting Fifty (“Babes not fifty – ‘Flirty’,” she says), but with the energy and enthusiasm of a teenager when it comes to stars, especially handsome hunks, (as in delivering dabbas of their fave food to their homes, or flying them abroad on her PJ) Bolly Aunty, swore she’d been a guest at the party and was breathless with excitement when she called to tell us about the ‘going ons’. “Priyanka was looking great and def was the big deal there,” she said, “Showing off her diamond ring to everyone. And Babes, I swear I saw every single star guest clamouring for a selfie with her. And asking her for advice – which she was doling out in plenty.” Did you too? We asked the Bollywood Aunty. “Hah, me!! I could give her advice,” she snorted, (she certainly could), but we digress. Aunty had obviously spent most of the evening making mental notes for her WhatsApp group and she couldn’t wait to offload it. “Kajol came and left early. Sonakshi came in looking lovely – she’s lost a lot of weight. Karisma didn’t look as great as usual, but was busy trying to get a selfie with Priyanka. Rich! Considering Bebo can’t stand Priyanka no?” No? We said. The Bolly Aunty ignored us and continued. “Ex-lovers Yami Gautam and Pulkit studiously avoided each other. Neha is looking six months pregnant, but hasn’t announced her pregnancy officially. Everyone was telling her she’s glowing,” she said. Did you really spend the entire evening watching everyone from the sofa? We asked. “No babes I also ate na?” said Bolly Aunty. “Food was Chinese, I think. Loads of starters, which looked like momos which I didn’t touch. The fish was good. So was the chicken. The ravioli was nice…” and then she gasped. What’s wrong? We enquired. “Ravioli! I had promised to send a dabba of it from Cellini to Ran…” she said hanging up.
