Sibling rivalry at its grossest
Aside from the people out there who still want Prince Harry for themselves, the rumours that he and girlfriend Meghan Markle might be getting engaged sometime soon is a dream come true for us all. Though there is one other person who isn’t down with the coupling — and that’s Meghan’s estranged half-sister, Samantha Grant.
The two are so estranged, in fact, that Grant has a tell-all book in the works and plans to put her sister in a light that’s not exactly flattering.
“My book deals with my bi-racial family in a candid, warm, personal and socially important way,” Grant told the Daily Star. “Maybe when Meghan is more mature and reads the book she’ll understand. Some of it she won’t like, some of it she might.”
Grant, who is wheelchair-bound due to multiple sclerosis, claims her half-sister (they share the same dad) is a social climber and has always wanted to be a princess but “her behaviour is certainly not befitting of a Royal Family member.” Samantha also added that Meghan “has a soft spot for gingers.”
Huh. Well, Markle is mature enough to have the book named after her, as its working title is The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister, a nickname Grant has given her. Anything for a buck, we suppose.
Justin Trudeau wants another shot at Matthew Perry
ICYMI, a couple weeks back, Matthew Perry was on Jimmy Kimmel Live where he recounted the terrible story of how he and another fifth-grader beat up Justin Trudeau. He knew it was wrong, and we’re still not sure why he felt the need to share the embarrassing tale, but it looks like the Prime Minister took time out of his busy schedule of running the country to respond to the actor’s truth-telling.
I’ve been giving it some thought, and you know what, who hasn’t wanted to punch Chandler? How about a rematch @MatthewPerry?

So, Trudeau’s ready for a rematch. What say you, Chandler?
Whoa, Brad Pitt doesn’t look like his usual self
Brad Pitt has always appeared fit (yes, even that time when he sported that scraggly yellow hair and equally fugly beard) but in recent photos, the actor looked much thinner than we’re used to seeing him.

“He’s healthy and much happier,” a source tells People. “Things with his family have improved, all is being addressed privately, and it’s serving everyone in the family well.”
It’s been over six months since Angelina filed for divorce from him but sources recently revealed that the two are working it out and things are no longer contentious. The source added that Pitt has been working out “almost daily” and had “lost a few pounds” and “he’s in very good shape.” Here’s hoping the significant weight loss is for a role and not because of what’s been going on in his personal life.
Brooklyn Beckham got his first tattoo; so it begins
David and Victoria Beckham‘s oldest is following in his dad’s footsteps. No, no, not with a soccer ball; rather, with the ink. Brooklyn went to his father’s friend and celebrity tattoo artist, Mark Mahoney, to get his first tattoo and showed off the progress in a series of black-and-white pics.
But the final result was in glorious technicolour.
Tattoos can be addictive, just ask David, so this’ll likely be the first of many. Ahh, like father, like son.
George Takei took things too far on April Fool’s Day
Damn. In what many thought was a sign of hope for America, George Takei got Twitter all riled up on Saturday after retweeting a story that revealed he was running for Congress in 2018 to unseat California representative and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes.

His tweet aroused suspicion considering the timing of it all but soon #Takei2018 was trending and many offered up congratulations.
@GeorgeTakei I hope you can count me as one of your early endorsers!! This is great news!
— Mark Ruffalo (@MarkRuffalo) April 1, 2017
@GeorgeTakei Count me in!

Sadly, though, it really was an elaborate trick, a dreams-dashing April Fool’s Day joke. Takei clarified that he posted it to put the spotlight on Georgia’s upcoming special election in which Democratic hopeful Jon Ossoff hopes to fill the congressional seat left vacant by the new health and human services secretary, Tom Price.
No, I’m not running for Congress. Happy 4/1!

Poor Mark Ruffalo. Happy belated April Fool’s. Meh.
