Three days after Meghan Markle sued The Mail on Sunday and its parent company Associated Newspapers in the UK for publishing one of her private letters, it has be revealed that her husband Prince Harry is taking on Rupert Murdoch’s The Sun and the owners of fellow tabloid The Daily Mirror.

The September 27 filed claims from the fourth in line to the British throne have to do with “the illegal interception of voicemail messages,” Buckingham Palace confirmed of the sealed suit. Earlier this week, after his wife’s suit was made public, Prince Harry released a letter online decrying how some in the press were “waging campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences” – words one could assume he would intend for this matter too.

Nicole Richie's Adoption Story Is Surprisingly Unique
Everyone knows that Nicole Richie is the daughter of legendary singer Lionel Richie, but not many people are actually aware of the fact that, along with famous figures like Steve Jobs, Faith Hill, and Marilyn Monroe, Nicole was adopted. The fashion designer and reality TV star was adopted by Lionel and his then-wife, Brenda, when she was 9 years old. She was born Nicole Camille Escovedo, and her biological parents are Peter Michael Escovedo, a musician who toured briefly with Lionel, and Karen Moss, an assistant to Nicole's aunt, singer, drummer, and Prince collaborator Sheila E. When Nicole was 4, her birth parents agreed to let her move in with Lionel and Brenda, as they were unable to care for her financially. About being adopted, Nicole has said, "My parents were friends with Lionel. They trusted that they would be better able to provide for me."

Kim Cattrall Claims She Faced 'Bullying' After Turning Down Sex and the City 3: 'No Means No'
In a new interview with The Guardian, Kim Cattrall claimed that she had allegedly faced “bullying” in regards to turning down another Sex and the City movie.

“I went past the finish line playing Samantha Jones because I loved Sex and the City,” she said. “It was a blessing in so many ways but after the second movie I’d had enough.”

“I couldn’t understand why they wouldn’t just replace me with another actress instead of wasting time bullying,” she added. “No means no.”

Last October, Cattrall’s former costar, Sarah Jessica Parker, announced that plans for Sex

‘The Big Flower Fight’: Netflix Plants Seeds For Major Unscripted Competition Format From ITV’s Multistory Media

  • Deadline
Exclusive: Netflix has planted the seeds for The Big Flower Fight (w/t) – a major new competition format rooted in the UK.

The eight-part series has sprouted from ITV Studios-owned Multistory Media. It comes as Netflix continues to grow out its non-scripted library and builds on hit competition originals including Nailed It! and The Final Table.

The series will see ten duos, including florists, sculptors and garden designers, put to the test as they compete in a series of themed challenges to create large-scale flower installations.

Each episode will test a different set of creative and practical skills, from floristry to carpentry and landscaping. The materials each pair can use to create their installation will vary week-by-week, and participants will be encouraged to think about plants which give back to the environment – such as pollinating, insect-friendly species. One team will be eliminated each week as the competition intensifies, leaving

John Ferriter Dies: Former Wma Board Member, Head Of Non-Scripted Television Was 59
John Ferriter, the former powerhouse William Morris Agency Evp/Worldwide Head of Non-Scripted TV and the only Wma board member to vote against the merger with Endeavor, died Thursday, according to sources. He was 59. A former close associate of his shared the news with some of Ferriter’s former colleagues today. We are still trying to confirm cause of death and specific details.

Also a television producer and a singer whose bands The Tearaways and Stingray opened for bands including The Bangles, Rem and Guns & Roses, Ferriter is probably best remembered for his career at Wma, where he spent nearly two decades and rose to the level of executive vice president. He also became a Wma board member, one who was very critical of the merger between Wma and Endeavor that left the latter smaller agency in control, and many of the braintrust of the colossus out, including Wma chief Jim Wiatt.

Twitter Responds To Controversial Figure Boris Johnson Becoming UK Prime Minister: “God Help Us”

Twitter Responds To Controversial Figure Boris Johnson Becoming UK Prime Minister: “God Help Us”
He wasn’t voted in by a majority of the country, he’s a controversial populist accused of racism and sexism, he comes from significant family wealth and he sports a distinctive blonde mop. The Donald Trump parallels are seemingly endless…Conservative Party members have elected Boris Johnson as the next Prime Minister of the UK.

This result was expected in recent weeks given that Johnson was one of the primary architects of Brexit and has the backing of the right-wing of his party who want Brexit at any cost, even if it means leaving the EU without a deal.

Johnson succeeds outgoing Pm Theresa May who was recently made to stand down by the fractious, ruling Conservative party. He will at some point need to call a general election so the country can have a say on whether it wants to be governed by the controversial figure.

Romesh Ranganathan: I’m rubbish at sport – and now I’ve got to do keepy-uppies with Freddie Flintoff

On A League Of Their Own, I’m always terrified I’ll get the ball and accidentally kill someone in the audience

I was terrible at sport at school. I was fat, which made things slightly tougher, but it also meant that people were encouraging to the point of patronising. If I managed to complete the 100m race on sports day without asking for a biscuit, the teachers would hug me and say, “See? I knew you could do it!” I once managed to negotiate a two-metre head start with a teacher purely on the grounds of being fat. He agreed, which in itself was fairly damaging, but not as damaging as the fact that I still came last. It was like a greyhound race where the greyhounds overtake the hare instantly, and then the fat hare cries to his parents so they take him to Happy Eater for pancakes.

Bette Midler Continues Trump Twitter Wars With Doggerel Poem On Melania

Bette Midler Continues Trump Twitter Wars With Doggerel Poem On Melania
Bette Midler is back on the Trump stump via Twitter. This time, she composed a bit of doggerel that references the President’s wife.

Midler tweeted yesterday:

There once was a girl from Slovenia

Who now lives right on Pennsylvinia

To the East Room she’ll flee

From her husband’s wee wee

While he plays with his own schizophrenia

Predictably, the poem drew praise from the anti-Trump crowd and condemnation from the President’s supporters. Midler and Trump have been going at each other in various venues for a while. The most recent quote that raised the President’s ire came in a Midler tweet that called Republicans “the dumbest group of voters in the country” and was inaccurately attributed to Trump. Midler later apologized for her mistake. “This quote turns out to be a fake from way back in ’15-16. Don’t know how I missed it, but

Soccer Aid for Unicef 2019, broadcast live and exclusively on ITV and Stv this week, has raised a record-breaking £6,774,764 so far – over £1m more than last year’s on the night total – for Unicef’s vital work keeping children around the world happy, healthy and safe to play.

The eagerly anticipated match took place in London for the first time in over a decade, packing out Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge Stadium with a whopping 39,836 in attendance.
