Richard Gere Descended From Mayflower Pilgrims, Divorce Finally Over Four Years After Marriage Breakdown

Richard Gere (born Richard Tiffany Gere in 1949) is an American actor and humanitarian activist and is also the former husband of models Cindy Crawford and Carey Lowell. “Everyone responds to kindness.”#Quote #RichardGere #BlissFuel pic.twitter.com/hrZu8LNaDD — Blissfuel (@Blissfuel_) December 27, 2016 Many of this brilliant actor’s fans may not be aware that Richard Gere is actually a descendant of the Mayflower Pilgrims: in fact, both his parents have ancestors from the Mayflower Pilgrims. American history reveals that the Pilgrims were disgruntled English dissenters who decided to migrate to America in the early 17th century after giving up their allegiance to the Church of England. The Pilgrims boarded the Mayflower at Plymouth in England and set sail for America. This fact has historical significance because the Pilgrims signed a declaration known as the Mayflower Compact, proclaiming their right to self-government. Most Pilgrims hailed from the English county of Nottinghamshire, especially Bassetlaw, and today the county is preparing to celebrate the epic journey taken by the Mayflower Pilgrims. Importantly, the first signatories of the Mayflower Compact hailed from Bassetlaw. John Mann, a Bassetlaw MP, sought the help of Tory Dame Caroline Spelman, a Church of England representative, and asked her to use her clout by inviting Pilgrim descendants like Richard Gere. According to the Belfast Telegraph, Mann revealed that those participating in the celebrations would love to see Richard Gere attend this special occasion. “[Dame Spelman] might care to bring one of the many descendants of the Pilgrims with her, if she with her good contacts could arrange it. The most popular would probably be Mr. Richard Gere.” Richard Gere appears to have taken after his ancestors in expressing religious freedom because the Pretty Woman actor is an ardent follower of Tibetan Buddhism. In fact, the popular actor found Buddhism while pursuing an interest in philosophical studies. ♀♂ Richard Gere’s funny Buddhism moments https://t.co/A8CEGcvSHE pic.twitter.com/RrzGNwYnIb — Culture Proof Blog (@thecultureproof) September 13, 2016 Later, his studies in Buddhism and teachings of the Dalai Lama convinced him that Buddhism is the only way to peace, tranquility, and non-violence. As a follower of Tibetan Buddhism, Richard Gere has fought long and hard against human rights violations in the Tibetan region. The Runaway Bride actor is chairperson of the International Campaign for Tibet, aiming to raise awareness about problems in the region, in addition to protecting the Tibetan culture. Even though Richard Gere’s marriage to Cindy Crawford ultimately failed, the supermodel credits Gere for teaching her a number of important things, including how to become famous. Crawford found Gere to be a very spiritual person, who urged her to connect with her fans and audiences emotionally rather than merely mingling with them. #Celebrity #Zone: Vintage Vogue #Magazine November 1992 Cindy Crawford Richard Gere Cover 90’s https://t.co/bG4fBbHMKT #CindyCrawford pic.twitter.com/4xAxpEsKd8 — Celebrity Zone (@lillianduhones) December 27, 2016 Unfortunately, their marriage didn’t last, and the couple decided to part ways as Crawford wanted to focus on her modeling career while Gere wanted to continue practicing Buddhism and work on his humanitarian projects. Later, Richard Gere married Carey Lowell, and this marriage lasted 11 years. Even though Richard parted ways amicably and peacefully with Crawford, it wasn’t so easy for the Time Out of Mind actor to finalize his divorce with Carey Lowell. Page Six reported that the court witnessed several heated moments during which Gere and Lowell argued loudly with each other. Richard Gere reportedly lost his cool during the divorce proceedings and vented his anger on a media photographer waiting outside the Manhattan courthouse where the proceedings were being held. The meditation beads on his left wrist and a Tibetan prayer bag did not prevent the loyal Buddhist from jabbing his pointed umbrella at the photographer. People magazine reported that the actor and Lowell spent around four years determining the divorce settlement amount which was to be calculated based on Richard’s total assets. At that time, Richard Gere was worth around $45 million!

Another Bachelor baby has been born. Jesse Csincsak and his lovely wife, Ann Lueders, just welcomed their third child, a son, on Tuesday. They named the sweet little boy Carter James after Ann’s father, Brian Carter Lueders, who died just a year ago. This new baby joins his older siblings, five-year-old Noah and two-year-old Charlotte, who are both excited about the newest member of their family. People had all of the details surrounding the birth of baby Carter and precious photos of the new addition to the Csincsak family as well. He weighed in at 8 lbs., 4 oz. and was 20 in. long. He entered into the world by C-section at 9:44 a.m. in Scottsdale, Arizona. Jesse and Ann are obviously excited about adding another little one to their brood. https://t.co/igT89COAG4 https://t.co/n90UtvTyf2 — Jesse Csincsak (@JesseCsincsak) December 28, 2016 The snapshots are adorable.

The dad-of-three described how well his older kids have adjusted already to baby Carter. “Our oldest Noah is such the protector of Carter already. He is gonna be a great big brother, always making sure whoever is holding him is being very gentle with his baby brother! And Charlotte is like a second mother — it’s heartwarming. [She says,] ‘Hi baby! Love you baby! Are you hungry, baby? Maybe he wants some pancakes?’ “ The most #heartwarming thing I have ever witnessed !! #csincsaklife #charbear #carterjamescsincsak #kids #baby #family #dadlife A photo posted by Jesse Csincsak (@jessecsincsak) on Dec 28, 2016 at 6:55pm PST Jesse Csincsak was the last man standing on season four of The Bachelorette. He won the heart of DeAnna Pappas, but that match up didn’t work out in the end. Ann Lueders appeared on Jason Mesnick’s season of The Bachelor. However, her journey to find the man of her dreams on the reality show ended in the first week. But that’s okay because she had her happily ever after in 2010 when she met the handsome Jesse at a Bachelor reunion, and they became husband and wife that same year. Now, three kids later, they are as happy as ever. In Touch, which was the first media outlet to report the birth of Carter James on December 27, mentioned that this was the third cesarean for Ann. She said how excited she and her husband are about starting the new year off with another child. The reality couple had previously spilled that they wanted to have their kids right away and pretty close to each other. Jesse had joked that they could get all of the messy stuff out of the way first and then buy new things when they get older. Thanks so much to Entertainment Tonight for including us in this Piece !!… https://t.co/1N6lPoONls — Jesse Csincsak (@JesseCsincsak) December 28, 2016 Jesse is obviously a good family man. The former snow boarder loves to take his wife and kids out into the wilderness for some fun in the snow and fresh air. They even have a brood of gorgeous huskies that are an amazing addition to their growing family as well. He is also a huge pro-gun advocate and is not shy about saying it. You can follow the Csincsak family’s adventures on his Instagram as he posts some pretty awesome photos. The 34-year-old dad is the first to say that he leads a pretty blessed life right now. My two little guys ???????????? A photo posted by Ann (Lueders) Csincsak (@anncsincsak) on Dec 28, 2016 at 4:50pm PST It’s great to see another Bachelor nation couple that are happy and thriving. Even though Jesse and Ann didn’t meet in front of millions of viewers on the ABC reality show, they are still a huge part of the whole franchise and always will be. Contestants who are looking for love among 25 other men or women who are vying for your attention constantly can take its toll, and most couples who become engaged during the whole process just don’t make it in the end. When any couple from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette hook up, get married, and have a family together, it makes fans very happy. Congratulations to Jesse and Ann Csincsak on the new addition to their family. [Featured Image by Jason Merritt/Getty Images]

Blake Shelton And Gwen Stefani Celebrated Christmas As One Big Family: Did He Finally Pop The Question?

Gwen Stefani celebrated Christmas in style with Blake Shelton. The couple spent Christmas Eve together in Shelton’s ranch in Oklahoma and weren’t afraid to spread the holiday cheer. Did Shelton finally pop the big question? According to Us Magazine, Stefani shared the holiday festivities with fans on social media. Wearing a baseball hat and plaid button-up, Shelton sang Christmas songs to Stefani and her three boys, including a rendition of “A Holly Jolly Christmas.” The country star wrote “Private show” alongside the video, which also featured an accordion and xylophone accompaniment. Stefani’s three boys — Kingston (10), Zuma (8), and Apollo (2) — donned matching plaid shirts for the occasion while the singer rocked a gray sweater. Stefani also shared a video of her dog, Ginger, and a look at a drawing of Shelton from Stella, her niece. “Coadmin is busy making snaps in the meantime love the @blakeshelton Woody masterpiece by Stella,” she captioned the image. Stefani and Shelton have been dating for over a year after meeting on the set of The Voice. The pair also celebrated Thanksgiving at Shelton’s Oklahoma ranch with both of their families.

[Image by Michael Reynolds-Pool/Getty Images] Entertainment Tonight reports that Stefani also shared a few pics of her and Shelton getting extra cozy over the holidays. One image featured the couple cuddling on a couch while another showed Shelton goofing around. With things looking stronger than ever for the couple, an inside source revealed that Stefani and Shelton are “starting to finalize” their plans for the wedding. Does this mean Shelton is closer than ever to popping the big question? During a chat with Glamour magazine, Stefani admitted that Shelton helped her reach a “new place” in life following her divorce with Gavin Rossdale. “He was a friend when I needed a friend,” she shared. “An unexpected gift.” For his part, Shelton opened up about his romance with Stefani during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel. When the host asked Shelton if he and Stefani go on elaborate dates on his helicopter, he explained, “We do, we do. We actually, we use that thing a lot. It gets a lot more use than you would think.” It still isn’t clear if Shelton and Stefani got engaged over Christmas. According to AceShowbiz, Shelton was spotted shopping for a ring right before to the holiday. The couple has yet to announce an engagement, but it sounds like Shelton is preparing to take things to the next level. The ring that first sparked rumors that Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani were engaged last year. [Image by Frederick M. Brown/Getty Images] “Blake [Shelton] has been shopping up a storm for Gwen [Stefani] and her boys [for Christmas],” the insider stated. “He basically bought everything Toys R’ Us sells for young boys including Minecraft, Pokémon and Tech Deck supplies. He also likes to get the boys some good old country presents like real bows and arrows, which they shoot on his property.” The source continued, “Blake is just as generous when it comes to Gwen. He really loves to spoil her. He won’t say if he’s going to propose or not, but he’s definitely been shopping for diamond jewelry.” Rumors of an engagement kicked into overdrive after Stefani was spotted wearing a shiny ring in May. Unfortunately, sources confirmed that it wasn’t an engagement ring and that Stefani was just trying to drop a major hint. According to Radar Online, Stefani was seen shopping at a Beverly Hills jewelry store last week. While it isn’t known if she is spying an engagement ring, an insider revealed that Shelton and Stefani can’t agree on the wedding details. “Gwen wants to go big on this – and Blake wanted to make it an informal affair down home in Tennessee or their new place in Oklahoma – but he’s not willing to go to the mat against her,” the source stated. Tell us! Do you think Blake Shelton should ask Gwen Stefani to marry him? Let us know in the comments below. [Featured Image by Christian Petersen/Getty Images]

Billie Lourd: Inside Her Close Bond With Her Mom Carrie Fisher And Grandmother Debbie Reynolds

Billie Lourd is experiencing unimaginable grief as she mourns the loss of the two most important women in her life. The Scream Queens star, who lost her mother, Carrie Fisher, on Dec. 27, is now mourning the death of her grandmother, entertainment legend Debbie Reynolds, just one day later. While Billie Lourd is grieving privately, her uncle, Todd Fisher told E! News he can’t imagine what his niece is going through. “Carrie’s daughter is 24 years old,” Fisher told E! Of Billie Lourd. ” To have to lose the girls, it’s just horrible. She’s got their genes but you can’t even imagine. I can’t imagine being 24 and having to do this and I’m 59.” Fisher said his famous mother was overcome with grief after the death of his sister and said she “wanted to be with Carrie.” Reynolds suffered a stroke and died a day after her famous daughter passed away. Billie Lourd will have the support of her remaining family members as she tries to cope with this profound loss. Her uncle Todd told the New York Daily News Billie will have full control over funeral arrangements for her mother, as well as anything she wants from her late mother’s estate. “We want her to have whatever she wants. Carrie wanted that,” Fisher told the Daily News. “There is a trust set up. But we’re all pretty well off. This was her mother…We’re very proud of her. She’s handling this with amazing strength.” ???????????? #blaséontheoutsideblessedontheinside since day 1 #likemotherlikedaughter #itsblackandwhitecauseits90s #throwback A photo posted by Billie Lourd (@praisethelourd) on Nov 3, 2016 at 10:05am PDT Billie Lourd’s uncle revealed that there would likely be two funeral services for his sister, a private one and a public one, and that the Star Wars actress would be buried in a family plot near her mother. “Nobody knew this was coming,” Lourd’s uncle said. “My mother has explicit plans about what she wants to do (for herself), but at Carrie’s age, she didn’t make plans. We’ll have a small family thing and then likely there will be a wider body of people involved in a second service. We have a family plot we’re looking at right now.” While Billie Lourd and her uncle now share the horror of losing their mothers within 48-hours of one another, Billie has reportedly already taken on the important task of caring for her late mom’s beloved French bulldog, Gary. According to TMZ, Fisher’s famous red carpet companion will be placed in Billie’s care. The 4-year-old puppy will join Lourd’s own French bulldog, Tina. The two dogs are reportedly best friends. Billie Lourd was extraordinarily close with her mom. In an interview earlier this year with Teen Vogue, Lourd said her mother raised her to be open minded. “She told me to be true, and kind, and confident in yourself,” Billie said. “She raised me to not think of men and women as different. She raised me without gender. It’s kind of the reason she named me Billie. It’s not about being a strong woman — it’s about being a strong person.” Billie Lourd’s last public appearance with her mom and grandmother was last year, when the trio attended the 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards, according to E! News. At the time, Reynolds joked that she wore a “big, ugly bun” in the classic movie Singin’ in the Rain, and that she warned her daughter to “be careful of any weird hairdos” when she landed the high-profile role of Princess Leia in Star Wars. “So, luckily, George [Lucas] gave her two buns. Thank you, George,” Reynolds joked. Debbie Reynolds, Carrie Fisher and Billie Lourd’s last public appearance together was magical: https://t.co/gsOCqqQ3IM pic.twitter.com/yQ8d8kidSq — E! News (@enews) December 29, 2016 Billie Lourd recently said the supersized fuzzy earmuffs she wore as Chanel No. 3 in Scream Queens is actually an homage to the famed Cinnabon-size buns her mom wore in Star Wars. “They are a little bit of a Princess Leia homage,” the 24-year-old revealed during a recent appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers.“It’s kind of a family tradition.” Billie, who had a small role in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, said none of her costars, including Abigail Breslin and Emma Roberts, wanted to wear the supersized earmuffs, but she was “drawn to them because of genetics.” “I saw them in the fitting and was immediately gravitated towards them because I had to be,” Billie explained. “I just went into the fitting, saw them, [and] recognized my family heritage – which is to have weird things over your ears and cover them all the time.” Earlier this year, a proud Billie Lourd talked to People about the documentary about her mom and grandmother, Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds, which made its debut in Cannes. “I was [interviewed] a little bit [for the documentary],” Lourd said. “It was more of a Debbie-Carrie thing. I’m always proud of my mother, she’s killing it right now. She’s incredible.” Lourd also said it was “such an incredible thing to get footage” of her grandmother’s younger days as a dancer and actress. “She’s had such an incredible career and she’s done so many shows that people don’t even know about,” Billie said. “It’s an incredible thing for people to see what a full star she is. She really does it all.” Billie described Reynolds is “an incredible grandmother,” and she revealed that they lived together in a family compound. “She is incredibly funny,” Billie said at the time. “I was downstairs with her just a week ago – she lives downstairs at my house, we’re all on this crazy actors compound that is insane. And I went down there and she was trying to convince me to start my own act, because she thinks that that’s the way that acting happens.” Billie also said her grandmother was a huge fan of Scream Queens. “She thinks it’s hilarious, she loves it so much,” Lourd said. “She loves the costumes. [She’s] obsessed with fur and ear muffs and all of that.” It’s clear that Billie Lourd had a very close relationship with her famous family members, and that her mom and grandmother were extremely proud of her. In one of her final tweets about her daughter, Carrie Fisher wrote: “My daughter Billie Lourd from Scream Queens. She’s MUCH more than my kid. Witty & pretty, I aspire 2 deserve her.” [Featured Image by Ethan Miller/Getty Images]rincess-leia-hair-earmuffs/

Bradley Cooper Takes Pregnant Girlfriend Irina Shayk To ‘Private Ranch’ For New Year’s Eve 2016, Engaged Couple Seek Privacy Together

Bradley Cooper and his girlfriend Irina Shayk are trying their best to keep their relationship on the down low. Now that she is pregnant with his baby, the engaged couple is trying even harder to preserve their privacy. Knowing that they are both high grossing Hollywood movers and shakers, they decided to opt out of fancy and bustling New Year’s Eve 2016 celebrations for something much calmer. To treat his pregnant girlfriend, Bradley Cooper took her to a “private ranch,” away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles this week. “Amid mounting rumors that they’re expecting a baby, Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk spent a cozy Christmas together in LA,” reports Page Six. “The day after the holiday the pair were spotted driving through the city in the “American Sniper” star’s Mercedes G-Wagen on the way to a countryside retreat at a private ranch outside of LA.” Seeing how she is at least well into her first trimester, being away from the noisy city and somewhere tranquil might be a good thing for the to-be mother. Christmas they spent together also was on a much calmer side of affairs. The Russian model spent the days leading up to the national holiday by running errands and treating herself. After walking Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the first time while pregnant must have taken a lot out of the 30-year-old supermodel. “The 30-year-old pregnant model kept her bump hidden under an over-sized bomber jacket while out and about on Friday (December 23) in Beverly Hills, Calif,” reports Just Jared. “Irina first made a stop to get her hair done at Benjamin Salon and then left with her friend and hair colorist Shah Karegar. The duo then stopped by a nail salon for some additional pampering.” While waiting to get her hair done, she treated herself to a decadent spread of chips and salad.

A photo posted by irinashayk (@irinashayk) on Dec 26, 2016 at 9:10am PST The fall and winter of 2016 has been excellent for the Hollywood power couple. Not only did they make major leaps in their respective careers, but they also managed to start the process of having a child. To top everything, paparazzi have been sighting a huge rock on her finger, looking suspiciously like an engagement ring! “On Wednesday, Irina Shayk was spotted leaving Bradley Cooper’s house in El Lay with her baby bump AND her gorgeous emerald-and-diamond ring,” reports Perez Hilton. This baby is not totally a surprise for Bradley and Irina as the rumor had it that they have been talking about starting a family. In fact, they have started to think of names for their first child. “Irina and Bradley are so excited to be parents,” an E! News source said. “They have already picked a few names they like. They know the but are still deciding between some names.” “Bradley and Irina love each other so much and this is not gonna be the only kid—there will be a few more after this one,” the source added, “Both families are very happy.” One of the reasons that the fans of Bradley Cooper and Irina Shayk were not entirely surprised by the pregnancy and engagement was because of how they were spending their time together. Not only did Bradley cross the Atlantic to be with her as she shot various fashion campaigns, but she also spent copious time with his mother Gloria Campano in New Jersey as well as on the west coast. “Just days after reports surfaced suggesting that Irina Shayk and Bradley Cooper are ‘discussing marriage,’ the Russian beauty was seen out with the actor’s mother in California,” reports Daily Mail. “Irina was spotted running errands with Gloria Campano in the upscale LA neighborhood of Pacific Palisades on Friday. The statuesque 30-year-old towered over her diminutive possible future mother-in-law as they exited a grocery store together.” Do you think there is a chance that the engaged couple will get married over the New Year’s Eve weekend?

Jinger Duggar And Jeremy Vuolo Sing Carols Super Fast On Family Blog, Ready For ‘Jill And Jessa Counting On’ After Wedding

Jinger Duggar thought that visiting her in-laws over the holidays may entail some polite conversation and some cooking. But she probably didn’t expect to show off her singing skills in their church! The good thing is that her husband Jeremy Vuolo captured it all on his phone camera and uploaded the evidence to the family blog, showing that he also has what it takes to take the spotlight in Jill and Jessa Counting On. In the video that Jeremy uploaded on Vuolo family blog, it showcases an organ player at his parents’ church playing ‘Twelve Days of Christmas’ at a tempo that the congregation is having a hard time keeping to the rhythm. From the video, it looks like his parents have completely given up on even trying to sing along while Jinger is doing her best in enunciating all the twelve days of Christmas to impress her husband. But they know that Christmas is not about spending time with family or singing carols at the speed of the light. To emphasize their faith, they also posted a little note on their blog to remind their fans where the famous holiday originates from. “Christian, as you spend time with your friends and family, prepare your Christmas meal, and wrap presents for one another, don’t be blinded and forget the true meaning of Christmas,” Jinger and Jeremy wrote. “We should recognize and offer thanks to our Lord for His gift of salvation. Because of His mercy, He saved us from death and by accepting His gift, He offered us everlasting life.” They have not just been showing off their musical skills on social media. After coming out from their nesting hibernation, they also have snapped a couple of pictures throughout the holiday season. Compared to other Duggar couples, like Jill and Derick and Jessa and Ben, these two showed that they have a good taste in choosing clothes that flatter them well. It also looks like that they have taken Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s advice about marriage and life together as a couple to heart. Right around the time of their wedding, the patriarch and the matriarch of the family made a note on their family blog about what it takes to have a long, happy and healthy marriage. “We encourage all of you guys out there, pursue your wife as if you were dating her, treat her like a queen, humble yourself and ask for forgiveness when offenses come,” Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar wrote on their blog. “We encourage husbands & wives to read the Bible together,” they continued. “A good, easy place to start is the chapter of Proverbs that corresponds with the day of the month. Pray together and take your family regularly to a good Bible teaching church and watch what God does with you marriage and family!” So far, Jeremy Vuolo has been keeping to their orders pretty well. For Jinger’s birthday, he wrote a short, but super sweet message on Facebook to show that he only has eyes for her. “Happy Birthday, my Love,” he wrote. “Next only to our Lord Jesus Christ, you are the joy of my life and the delight of my soul! I love you, Jinger.” In that short message, he wrote “love” twice so that’s probably enough to pass Jim Bob and Michelle’s test of romantic expression. Jinger and Jeremy also engage in PDA a lot, to a point which they had to defend their behavior to the public. “Jinger and I are both very affectionate. It means a lot to have an arm around or something, and that’s how we express our affection,” Jeremy said, according to Us Weekly. “We have a clean conscience as long as it’s not leading us to impurity.” Do you think Jinger and Jeremy will steal the spotlight on the next season of Jill and Jessa Counting On? Let us know in the comments below! [Featured Image by Jeremy Vuolo/Facebook]

Margot Robbie Fed Her Wedding Guests With Pizza And Coco Pops, Then Tattooed Her Wedding Date On Them

Margot Robbie finished off her massive 2016 by getting married, according to the Telegraph. The 26-year-old actress confirmed the rumors by posting an unambiguous photo of her ring finger. It’s been a huge year for Margot Robbie. The actress starred in Suicide Squad, hosted Saturday Night Live, graced multiple magazine covers, and even became besties with a hedgehog. So when rumors surfaced that Robbie was planning to get married this year, nobody believed it at first. But Margot Robbie herself took to Instagram to confirm the big news. The lucky man is British filmmaker Tom Ackerley and, according to reports, the Wolf of Wall Street actress wed Ackerley at an exclusive ceremony in Byron Bay this past weekend. Margot Robbie’s Instagram photo confirming the news included the classic “He’s mine!” gesture when a girl shows off her ring finger with a ring, and it looks as if she’s actually giving the middle finger. A photo posted by @margotrobbie on Dec 19, 2016 at 7:56pm PST In the photo, Margot Robbie, dressed in white, is seen kissing her long-time beau. Several photos from the wedding have surfaced online, shedding some light on the ceremony. An unnamed person, who allegedly attended the wedding, told Australia’s Northern Star that guests at the ceremony were fed with unconventional wedding food: pizza, barbecued food, and even Coco Pops.

The lovebirds met in 2013 on the set of the World War 2 drama Suite Francaise. According to sources, there were about 50 guests in attendance of the secret wedding ceremony. Margot Robbie looked gorgeous in a cream, off-the-shoulder wedding dress, which was reportedly a gift from her mother. The Suicide Squad actress’s brothers Lachlan and Cameron attended the ceremony, while her sister Anya was reportedly the maid of honor. Margot Robbie’s brother Cameron was even tagged in an Instagram photo, which was allegedly taken during their wedding party that Sunday night. Cameron, who’s seen in the picture with four of Robbie’s friends, wrote on Instagram, “the joys holiday travels.” Not only did Margot Robbie host the ultimate casual Australian wedding, but she even reportedly finished it off by tattooing her wedding date on some of her guests. Elle reported that two now-deleted Instagram posts by one of Robbie’s close friends, Isabella Kerr, showed the actress seemingly tattooing her friends with “XIX” – 19 in roman numerals – as a permanent reminder of her wedding date.

The actress is set to reprise the iconic role in upcoming spin-off Gotham City Sirens. The Daily Mail even posted photos of Margot Robbie arriving in Australia wearing a T-shirt that said, “Say ‘I do’ down under,” which some now realize gave everyone a pretty clear idea of what the actress was planning to do during her trip back to her native Australia!

Margot Robbie confessed in the interview that she initially feared Ackerley wouldn’t love her back. “This crept up on me. We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him, but I thought, ‘Oh, he would never love me back. Don’t make it weird, Margot. Don’t be stupid and tell him that you like him.’” And then, Margot Robbie says, it just “happened.” And the actress admits she felt like their relationship makes “so much sense” that “nothing” has ever made more sense before. Ackerley is a British assistant film director, who met the actress on the set of Suite Française three years ago. Ackerley and Margot Robbie began dating months after they met on set. In 2014, the lovebirds even launched their own film company, Lucky Chap Entertainment. Ackerley, who was brought up in the suburb of Guildford, England, is a huge fan of rugby and golf. Robbie’s new husband studied film at Godalming College. In her interview with Vogue earlier this year, Margot Robbie claimed Ackerley was “the best-looking guy in London.” [Featured Image by Eugene Gologursky/Getty Images]

Prince Harry And Mark Dyer 'Lengthy' Meeting While Meghan Markle Alone In Toronto

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle didn’t rejoin each other right after Christmas. The Mirror had previously reported that Queen Elizabeth had given her permission for Harry to miss Prince Philip’s traditional Boxing Day shoot and instead head to the airport to catch the first flight out to see Meghan. The Queen reportedly understood how much Harry and Meghan were missing each other. She supported the relationship to the point that she was willing to let Harry break with royal tradition and spend more time with Meghan. At that time, a Harry insider said that the Queen gave her mark of approval to the relationship with Meghan and since it was “obvious everybody understands just how much they’re missing each other,” Prince Harry would be allowed to “bypass normal Boxing Day traditions.” Meghan Markle looks downcast after spending Christmas holidays without Prince Harry https://t.co/ZZRsA2pXs7 pic.twitter.com/SmXZHh2lS5 — Daily Express (@Daily_Express) December 28, 2016 But the Daily Mail reports that on December 28, two days after Boxing Day, Harry was still in England, and Markle was still in Toronto, where she lives. Whatever Meghan and Harry’s plans were for getting together before New Year’s, it appears that something changed. According to the outlet, Prince Harry was spotted meeting with his long-time mentor, Mark Dyer, but Markle was far away, “wrapped up in the cold in Canada.” Meghan Markle is my workout inspiration. This girl is not using the cold as an excuse. https://t.co/NcKVeFjzkq — HRH Kate Middleton (@HRHKateBlog) December 27, 2016 Dyer is a former Welsh Guards officer and his close association with Prince Charles has meant that he has been “one of the key figures in the [Prince Harry’s] life since childhood.” Mark has even earned the affectionate title of Harry’s second father.

The International Business Times reports that British actor and Anti Social co-star Gregg Sulkin has gone so far as to say that Markle is well-suited to be Prince Harry’s wife, and a “princess of our country.” “If there is anyone who acts accordingly and acts well-mannered and in a classy, sophisticated way, [it’s her]. I would be nothing but proud for her to in the future one day potentially be a princess of our country, to represent our country. I don’t think that there is anybody more suited and more respectful.” Meghan Markle in Canada while Prince Harry meets Mark Dyer in England [Image by Jason Kempin/Getty Images] With talk of a royal engagement even from fellow actors, it’s no wonder royal watchers and Markle fans are putting their own construction on the meeting between Prince Harry and his mentor. The two met at Mark Dyer’s pub, the Sands End pub, and Harry didn’t leave until after dusk fell. The indications are that the engagement of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle will be announced before end of year???? https://t.co/q0IjUmk7Me — Royally_Petite (@RoyallyPetite) December 7, 2016 A witness to the meeting said that it lasted “more than an hour and a half,” and the Prince’s bodyguard was at the table with Harry and Mark. Dyer and Harry looked serious and focused throughout their discussion, and didn’t enter into conversation with anyone else in the pub. “They had their heads down most of the time as if they really wanted to keep their chat private.” In the meantime, Meghan gave no sign that anything special might be happening in her life, and took some time for “one of her favorite activities” with her mom. People reports that Markle and her mom stepped out for a yoga class together despite the cold weather in Toronto, where temperatures were around the freezing mark. What do you think? Did Prince Harry put off his Boxing Day trip to talk to Mark Dyer about Meghan Markle? Will Mark Dyer approve an engagement between Markle and the prince in 2017?

Tarek And Christina El Moussa: 'Flip Or Flop' Canceled After Divorce?

Tarek and Christina El Moussa are reportedly headed for divorce, but will their breakup lead to the cancelation of their HGTV house-flipping series, Flip or Flop? On their reality series, Tarek and Christina El Moussa appear to be a happily married couple who work together flipping houses, but nowadays, they are estranged and doing their best to co-parent their two children, 6-year-old daughter Taylor Reese and 1-year-old Brayden James. What will happen to their show? Tarek and Christina El Moussa have yet to officially confirm or deny their exact plans for Flip or Flop, but in their statement to People Magazine earlier this month, in which they confirmed their split, they claimed to be dedicated to continuing to work together. “We will continue to work through this process civilly and cooperatively, and plan to continue our professional life together,” they explained at the time.

HGTV is currently airing episodes of Flip or Flop and the series will continue production as scheduled.” While the network said nothing about its potential plans to remove the house-flipping series from its lineup, E! News claimed weeks later that the show would be ending in 2017. According to the report, Tarek and Christina El Moussa have continued to work with the network, but only in an effort to fulfill the obligations required by their current contracts with HGTV. “The show will end after that,” an insider claimed. Tarek and Christina El Moussa got married in 2009 and ended their relationship in May of this year after an odd incident at their Yorba Linda, California.

[Image by Jerod Harris/Getty Images] “We had an unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to our house in an abundance of caution,” Christina and Tarek El Moussa said in a statement to People Magazine in regard to the May incident. “There was no violence and no charges were filed.” According to officials, police received a call about a “possibly suicidal male with a gun” on May 23 and later responded to the Chino Hills State Park Main Ridge Trail where Tarek was located. As the report explained, a witness had claimed to have seen Tarek “run out of his back door” and “jump over his back fence” before venturing off onto a nearby hiking trail. Meanwhile, the report claimed, Christina El Moussa was left “crying and shaking.” While Tarek and Christina El Moussa have referred to the incident as a “misunderstanding,” at least a couple of other witnesses were interviewed and when police reportedly spoke to Shannon Rhodes, who appeared to be the hair and makeup artist of Christina El Moussa, they were informed that Tarek “seemed upset” before leaving the home and when she reportedly tried to talk to the television star, he completely ignored her. That said, Christina El Moussa’s now-estranged husband, did not make any threatening statements to Rhodes, nor did he say anything about harming himself. Although Tarek and Christina El Moussa are no longer involved in a romantic relationship with one another, a report by Hollywood Take on December 28 claimed Christina is dedicated to saving the brand she and Tarek have created. To see more of Tarek and Christina El Moussa, tune into Flip or Flop Season 7, which airs on Thursday nights at 9 p.m. on HGTV. [Featured Image by Jerod Harris/Getty Images]

James Kennedy Explains Family Feud That Separated Him From His Godfather George Michael

James Kennedy is speaking out on the death of his famous godfather, George Michael. After the 53-year-old pop superstar was found dead at his home on Christmas Day, Kennedy took to social media to pay tribute to his “second dad” with several poignant posts. But now, Kennedy is also explaining why he was estranged from Michael during the Wham! singer’s final years. According to The Sun, while George showered the future Vanderpump Rules star with gifts when he was a child, James Kennedy hadn’t seen his estranged godfather in over 10 years. Kennedy’s father, music producer Andros Georgiou, reportedly had a falling out with the longtime family friend following the singer’s 1998 arrest for lewd behavior in a California restroom. “He was like a second dad but we never really got to talk again, which is heartbreaking,” Kennedy said after Michael’s sudden death. “That really upset me the most. I always thought that once I get older, make a little money to travel myself I could just go find him. It was a matter of people being stubborn and thinking there was more time then there actually is.” James Kennedy revealed that he was distraught upon finding out that George had passed away. “I know he was sick for a while,” James said. “I was crying all night when I heard the news. He is a legend and he touched everyone with his music. I love him and I’ll always love him.” Kennedy described his late godfather as “a massive inspiration” and said he spent every Christmas with him until his family moved when he was 10-years-old. The late star was not only godfather to James, 24, but also to his younger brother Harry, 22. After the “Careless Whisper” singer died, James Kennedy posted a throwback photo of the two of them holding a giant stuffed dinosaur at Christmastime when he was a kid. “Rest In Peace George,” James captioned the black-and-white pic. “I’m heartbroken we never got to speak again after so many years, I can’t believe this has happened, please watch over me in heaven Godfather. Enjoy paradise I love you.” Rest In Peace George I’m heartbroken we never got to speak again after so many years, I can’t believe this has happened, please watch over me in heaven Godfather. Enjoy paradise I love you. ❤️ A photo posted by James Kennedy (@itsjameskennedy) on Dec 25, 2016 at 3:47pm PST “He got me a rocking horse and that Barney the dinosaur that year,” James told The Sun of the photo. “He would always bring the best presents. His energy really set the tone for our family.” Kennedy revealed that George doted upon him and gave him elaborate Christmas gifts when he was a child and that the Grammy winner’s famous holiday song, “Last Christmas’ often played throughout his family’s home during the holidays. “He was great – I used to call him uncle George. He was like a second dad – he was family. He wasn’t George Michael to me, it was family. His Christmas song would be playing in the kitchen when we were there and I didn’t even know it was him. It was always fun when George was there.” After Michael’s death, James also posted a photo of his father and the singer with their arms around each other. “Dad and Yog,” James wrote. “God takes angels when he needs them. Thank you all for your messages, bless you all. Dad, I’ll be with you soon and can’t wait I love you.” Dad and Yog… “God takes angels when he needs them”. Thank you all for your messages, bless you all. Dad, I’ll be with you soon and can’t wait I love you A photo posted by James Kennedy (@itsjameskennedy) on Dec 25, 2016 at 6:58pm PST According to Bravo’s The Daily Dish, George Michael was once best friends with James Kennedy’s dad, Andros Georgiou. The two grew up together and Andros ever went on to manage Wham! in the 1980s, but the longtime friends had a falling out in the late 1990s and, sadly, never reconciled. Georgiou detailed his falling out with the superstar in his autobiography, Rock: The Luckiest Man In Pop, and James Kennedy never hid the fact that he hadn’t seen his godfather in many years. While James did boast to his Vanderpump Rules co-stars about his connection to the famous singer, last year he made it clear he hadn’t seen him in a long time. When James took to Twitter to wish Michael a happy birthday last June, he shared a throwback photo of the two of them and wrote: “Happy Birthday Uncle @GeorgeMichael. I know it’s been a long time, [you’re] in my prayers. See u soon one day I hope.” Take a look at the video below for more on James Kennedy’s tribute to George Michael. [Featured Image by Alberto E.
