No comment. Really.
It was a couple weeks ago that Selena Gomez started following Bella Hadid on Instagram. That in itself was pretty major, as was that Bella didn’t return Selena’s follow. So when Selena left a comment on one of Bella’s more recent posts, the comment garnered all kinds of attention.
The original pic was of Hadid looking in a mirror with the caption, “A Dior thing.” Gomez not only liked the post but she also added, “Stunning” in the comments — with a heart-eyes emoji. That’s huge! So when Bella deleted the post, the internet wondered why. Was it because Selena’s comment overshadowed her Dior plug? Is it because Bella is friends with Justin Bieber’s wife and is staunchly on Team Hailey? Or is it because both women are the exes of The Weeknd? Whatever the case, Gomez found out about the deleted post and shared her feelings with a fan.

Bella dated Abel first, they split up, he and Selena hooked up for much of 2017, then they broke up, then Abel and Bella reunited for a little while. Now, neither are dating him. Perhaps Bella’s delete is pure coincidence and has nothing to do with Selena at all. Hadid still hasn’t posted a replacement post but we bet Dior is happy. They’re getting more attention than ever before.
Duchess Kate’s private secretary quits after two years
Looking for a job? Because Duchess Kate is looking for a new private secretary. Catherine Quinn, who previously held the position, just quit but her departure is amicable.
But there’s a lot to live up to. While the person in the role is responsible for keeping Kate’s diary organized and accompanying her to engagements, the Daily Mail described Quinn as Kate’s “gatekeeper,” “instrumental” in helping the Duchess develop her early years project, and working to “beef up” Kate’s “public profile as a working royal,” not to mention as the future Queen of England.
Quinn is reportedly leaving to the demands of a full-time royal job for part-time charity work.
“Catherine is a thoroughly lovely lady and has achieved a lot working for the duchess. But she simply wants to take a step back and focus again on her charity work,” a source told the Mail. “She has done an incredible job but just wants some more time for other interests and feels she has helped the duchess create a solid platform in order to move forward. They are parting on the best of terms.”
Anyone feeling up to the task?

The new hospice contains more areas for clinical care and dedicated therapy rooms, allowing EACH to meet the increased demand for its service and the ever-changing and more complex needs of those it cares for.

Whilst a lot has changed since then, my commitment and support for this wonderful organisation and the work that you do has not”.

Ariana Grande had to cancel a show because of mystery illness
Ariana Grande is in the middle of her Sweetener World Tour but she’s had to put things on hold as she’s been feeling under the weather. And it must be really bad because she ended up cancelling her Sunday show in Lexington, Kentucky.
“I woke up kind of 10 times worse and it hurts so bad to swallow,” Ari said in a video on her Instagram Stories, via People. “I’m not really sure what’s going on. But, I, unfortunately, don’t think I will be able to push through tonight. I am so sad and sorry. I’m so upset but of course obviously, you will be refunded.”
She added: “I’m just really devastated. Thank you for understanding and sending love. I will keep you posted as soon as I know what is going on with my body. Thank you for understanding and I am so sorry.”
Grande also took to Twitter to write, “It sucks feeling like absolute sh*t but it sucks way more to not be with u all. u mean the world. i hope u truly know. love u.”
It was on Saturday that Ari let fans know that she’s been feeling sick for “over three weeks,” since her last London show. That’s … a long time for a singer to suffer from a sore throat and sinus infection. Her next show is scheduled for Tuesday in Atlanta, but no word on whether that’s being cancelled too.
She did get some advised from a legendary singer who knows how to handle these kinds of things. Follow Babs’ advice, Ari. You have nothing to lose.
my goodness. love you so so much. thank you my sweetest. https://t.co/n9894wF6A6

Chandler Bing and Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker are equals, and Matthew Perry is here for it
There might be no TV character more unlike Joker‘s Joaquin Phoenix than Friends‘ Chandler Bing. Monica Geller’s husband, played by Matthew Perry, is a sarcastic goofball while Arthur Fleck is, well, a smidge more intense than that. Sure, he was a stand-up comedian but his upbringing turned him into a very bad person. The same can’t be said for Chandler, thank goodness. But someone created a meme that links Chandler with Arthur and Perry couldn’t love it more.
Sorry I don’t know who made the image, but bravo.

Perry doesn’t frequent social media often so when he does, he proves he’s not blah, he’s a hoot.
Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian celebrated their two-year anniversary
They may seem like they’ve been together forever but Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian have, in fact, only been married for two years. On Saturday, the pair celebrated their anniversary and took to Twitter with two different posts.
Serena’s was more traditional and showed her and Alexis from the wedding day, looking up at something, beaming and looking all kinds of radiant. She captioned it with “2 years and counting,” and thanked her husband for putting up with her.

Alexis’ post was as equally as sweet.
“Celebrating 2 years with my ride or die @serenawilliams,” Ohanian wrote. “Always ready for the next black tie event … Or Netflix & Chill night in.” Congrats, you two!
