Samantha Markle is at it again
Hot on the heels of not-so-cleverly dubbing her sister, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, a “DuchASS,” you would think Samantha Markle would rein it in. Pfft, think again and think lower. Prince Harry celebrated his birthday on Saturday, and Markle thought she would send the royal a not-so-nice birthday tweet.
“Happy Birthday Harry!” she captioned the tweet which featured a gif of a hamster cramming cake into its mouth. “As you ‘mack down’ on your birthday cake, think about the birthday wishes you never extended to your FATHER-IN-LAW.”
Once again, Samantha is offended on their father Thomas Markle‘s behalf. But her mean tweet was anything but offensive, when you think about it; is she comparing Harry to that hamster, like it’s some kind of insult? A hamster wearing a birthday hat and eating cake is adorable — and so is Harry! Sam loses once again.
So are Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin married or not??
Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin secretly got married on Thursday. Or that’s what we were led to believe. There were photos of them leaving a courthouse and a source even confirmed to People that “they went ahead and did it without listening to anyone.” Congrats!
Not so fast.
Baldwin took to Twitter on Friday to write, “I understand where the speculation is coming from, but I’m not married yet!”
Huh. OK, then they’re not.
But Hailey has since deleted that tweet and now we’re really confused.
And Justin’s mom’s tweets aren’t exactly shedding any light on the situation.
Love is unconditional.

WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?
A friend of the couple added that Baldwin “feels a civil ceremony and their ‘real’ wedding are two separate things.”
And People‘s “religious source” revealed that Justin and Hailey were indeed legally married at the courthouse but they’re going to do it up in a religious ceremony and reception. “They’re going to have a big blowout, in front of God and everyone they love.”
So you’re telling us they’re married … right?
Casey Affleck weighed in on Ben’s sobriety
Add Casey Affleck to the list of people who believe Ben Affleck really wants to get better, if not for himself, then for his ex, Jennifer Garner, and their three children.
“Alcoholism has a huge impact on not just the person, but also their family,” Casey told ET. “So, I think for his kids’ sake and for their mom, and for himself, he’s trying to do the work and get it together.”
Affleck also added that he and Ben “come from a long line of alcoholics,” all the more reason he needs the help. “Ben is an addict and an alcoholic. Most of my grandparents are alcoholics. My father is an alcoholic, as bad as you can be, and he’s been sober for about 30 years. I’ve been sober for about six years. Ben is trying to put it together, and it can be a very hard thing to do.”
And living in the public eye while trying to conquer these demons isn’t ideal. “It can’t be [easy] to have everybody looking at you and taking your picture as you’re walking out of an intervention. I don’t envy that,” Affleck added. “I saw my father struggle with it for many years and nobody was following him around with cameras and stuff. It’s not a great look. But on the other hand, it’s nothing to be ashamed of and it’s good that he’s taken care of.”
Ben might still be involved with that Playboy model, but it’s Garner who not only staged Affleck’s intervention but drove him to rehab herself and continues to support him. Here’s hoping he does what he needs to do.
Terry Crews accepts alleged groper’s apology … after the alleged gropey agent resigned from his job
It’s been nearly a year but Terry Crews is finally getting some vindication. Crews shared the letter of apology Adam Venit wrote him back in March, but only after the agent revealed he was parting ways with talent agency WME.
@WME ‘s ADAM VENIT FULL APOLOGY LETTER:
Received: March 22nd, 2018
Accepted WITH HIS RESIGNATION: September 10th, 2018#Accountability

Crews points out that while Venit’s apology was sent in May, he’s only accepting it now that he’s no longer working at WME. Page Six reports Venit is leaving WME less than a year after stepping down due to the sexual assault accusation waged by former client Crews. After Crews alleged Venit groped him, the agent was suspended for 30 days while the agency investigated the claims. He was cleared of all charges, Crews filed a lawsuit, and that is in the process of being settled. It’s about damn time.
Carrie Underwood revealed she had three miscarriages in two years
Carrie Underwood is expecting her second child with husband Mike Fisher. After having son Isaiah in 2015, they were prepared to have another but in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning, the country star revealed it wasn’t easy.
“I’d kind of planned that 2017 was, you know, going to be the year that I work on new music, and I have a baby,” Underwood said. “We got pregnant early 2017, and it didn’t work out.”
Carrie and Mike remained optimistic following that first miscarriage, but they suffered another loss later that year. “In the beginning it was like, ‘OK, God, we know this is, just wasn’t your timing. And that is all right. We will bounce back and figure our way through it.’ And got pregnant again in the spring, and it didn’t work out.”
Underwood went on to say she suffered another miscarriage the following year. “Got pregnant again, early 2018. Didn’t work out. So, at that point, it was just kind of like, ‘OK, like, what’s the deal? What is all of this?'” A question many women and men ask and get angry about it. And that’s exactly what she did, eventually.
“I had always been afraid to be angry,” Underwood confessed. “Because we are so blessed … I’m like, ‘If we can never have any other kids, that’s OK, because [Isaiah] is amazing.’ And I have this amazing life. Like, really, what can I complain about? I can’t. I have an incredible husband, incredible friends, an incredible job, an incredible kid. Can I be mad? No.” But then she was. Because it’s only natural.
“I got mad … I was like, ‘Why on Earth do I keep getting pregnant if I can’t have a kid? Like, what is this? Shut the door. Like, do something. Either shut the door or let me have a kid. ‘And for the first time, I feel like I actually I told God how I felt.”
Underwood said a visit to the doctor’s a little while later confirmed she was pregnant and healthy, even though she was fully expecting them to tell her she was going to have another miscarriage. But, “they told me everything was great!”
Carrie announced the happy news in August in an Instagram video. Congrats to her, Mike and Isaiah.
