In an effort to "stand up against the global bullying" of Meghan Markle, five of the duchess' best friends spoke out in an anonymous group interview with People magazine to dispel rumors, allegations and misconceptions about their longtime pal."Meg has silently sat back and endured the lies and untruths," a former co-star said. "We worry about what this is doing to her and the baby. It's wrong to put anyone under this level of emotional trauma, let alone when they're pregnant."In addition to clarifying the relationships (or lack thereof) that she has had with her estranged family members, Meghan's friends also gave rare insight into what she's like behind closed doors. During a recent visit to Meghan and Harry's home at Kensington Palace (they'll soon move away from Kensington Palace and into Frogmore Cottage as they prepare for their first child), her friends noticed that the former "Suits" star's nature hasn't changed."We've all been to their cottage," one friend said. "It's small … [Read more...] about Duchess Meghan’s best friends shared rare insights into her life behind closed doors

In this edition of Theme Park Bits: The Disney princesses have an exciting (and expensive) new character-breakfast home at the Disneyland Resort. New details about the Jurassic World-themed water attraction have emerged. Heimlich’s Chew Chew Train has a new resting place after having been shut down. And more! As you probably know, last year, the Disneyland Resort introduced a brand-new area to Disney California Adventure. Pixar Pier, the re-themed version of Paradise Pier, has largely been a success, but in redesigning the area, the Imagineers removed a character-dining option. Previously, the pier’s flagship restaurant was Ariel’s Grotto, at which you could meet the Disney princesses like Ariel, Belle, and more. But the arrival of Pixar meant that, yes, they were booting out your beloved princesses. (Just imagine Sheriff Woody as the vicious landlord kicking Ariel and friends to the curb.) So, for about nine months, there hasn’t been a character-dining … [Read more...] about Theme Park Bits: A New Character Breakfast in Disneyland, the New Home for an Old Pixar Ride, and More! – /Film
By Stephen Schaefer | PUBLISHED: February 1, 2019 at 11:33 am | UPDATED: February 1, 2019 at 11:34 am When Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Favourite” had its Venice Film Festival world premiere last August, I wrote that it was certain to get Oscar nominations for its three starring females: *Emma Stone, whose character makes the journey from country mouse to become a formidable Royal to the Queen, *Olivia Colman as the gout-ridden, neurotic Queen Anne with her bunnies and *Rachel Weisz whose powerful position as the Queen’s confidant and administrator is ruined by the political plotting and lovemaking of her rival. Naturally it was Stone who would be in the Best Actress category while Colman and Weisz competed with each other in the Supporting Actress category. But overwhelming, rhapsodic critical praise greeted Colman’s funny-tragic-sad-pathetic Queen and someone at Fox Searchlight decided Colman, despite her relatively few scenes and not being the engine … [Read more...] about Hollywood & Mine: ‘The Favourite’ – A risky Oscar gamble?
Texas takes up nearly 10 percent of the United State’s land mass. It’s the second most populous state. It produces more of the nation’s oil than any other state or commonwealth. And we drink a helluva lot of the country’s tequila. But when it comes to television, Texas is sorely underrepresented. Y’all know the story: California and New York dominate the TV geography wars simply because that’s where the studios are located and that’s where most of the creatives live. So nearly every other new show sprouting on the TV grid comes set in these two locales, usually Los Angeles or New York City. They’re fine places, but they’re not Texas. Which is why shows set in the Lone Star State tend to linger in your memory a little longer. Part of that is setting — our state is beautiful and varied. Part of that is our lore — Texas has a history that will rival anyone’s. But a large part of it is our people and the stories built … [Read more...] about Here are the greatest Texas TV shows of all time
