9 Reasons the Royal Family Is Actually Not as Strict as You Think

image

There’s been a lot written about the royals’ many uptight “rules” and the archaic decorum everyone in the family abides, but the House of Windsor has been changing a lot over the years. Although there are still old customs they must uphold (they are royals after all), the family has been evolving, becoming more modern and less isolated. Sure, they might hold the image of a bunch of “stiff upper crusts,” they’re actually a lot more normal than you think — well, normal for royals anyway. Below, are a few reasons.

1

They favor gag gifts over elaborate presents.

2

They have a sense of humor.

3

None of them actually wants to be king or queen.

4

They do their own shopping.

5

The Queen’s more open-minded than you think.

6

Prince Harry is the most casual one of them all.

7

Prince William isn’t far behind either.

8

Also, what’s so traditional about a palace covered in dog pee stains?

9

They’re gradually getting rid of old, sexist rules.

'Mrs. Doubtfire' Turns 25 — Take a Look Inside the Iconic San Francisco House

image

It’s hard to believe it’s been 25 years since Mrs. Doubtfire taught us all about the great lengths a dad would go to be with his children, and I’m crying just thinking about the incredible Robin Williams (RIP) who brought the eponymous character to life.

After a messy divorce with his wife Miranda (Sally Field), Daniel Hillard (Williams) disguises himself as an older British nanny in order to convince his ex-wife to let him look after their kids. What follows is family-friendly, wholesome fun, with some heartfelt tears mixed in.

Growing up, I probably watched this movie over a hundred times, and it instilled a deep love for the city of San Francisco in me from a very early age. I can hardly think of a more iconic SF movie than Mrs. Doubtfire, which, fun fact, was shot entirely in the city.

image

One thing I appreciate tremendously about this film after years of rewatching it is the way Mrs. Doubtfire warms the hearts of the children and mother, successfully making their broken house a home once again.

So, for the 25th anniversary of the film’s release, I wanted to take a look inside the iconic Pacific Heights home to relive some of the movie’s best moments, without spending any money on airfare.

image

When Mrs. Euphegenia Doubtfire initially speaks to Miranda on the phone about interviewing as a nanny, she tells her ex-husband-in-disguise to show up at 2640 Steiner Street, right in the heart of the very fancy Pacific Heights, just steps away from the Embarcadero. 

As it turns out, this is an actual real-life address, which, since Robin Williams’ untimely death in 2014, has become a site for fans from all over the world to leave flowers and notes of remembrance.

From the looks of the real estate photos taken before the house sold for a pretty $4.15 million in 2016, the white door in the film was changed for a more classic wooden finish. The 3,300-square foot home boasts 4 bedrooms, an office, and 3.5 baths. 

Not too shabby for the Hillard family of four.

image

With the exception of some key updates that bring the house from ’90s homey — which Miranda claims in the movie to have designed all by herself — to 21st century real estate chic, the formal living room doesn’t look too changed. 

Even with all the ruckus of a birthday party going on, it’s hard not to appreciate the window-lined turret, which according to the home’s listing, promises “glimpses of the San Francisco Bay.”

image

In fact, the film kept most of the house’s classic details, like the gorgeous inlaid detail on the pristine hardwood floors. 

imageimage

The only big change I picked up on were the built-in bookshelves around the living room fireplace in the movie, which were gone by the time these real estate shots were taken.

imageimage

Even the iconic kitchen, where Mrs. Doubtfire catches on fire after trying her hand at preparing a home-cooked meal, has a similar layout to the ones that feature in the listing. Just look at those tiled countertops, they’ve become a rare sight in modern houses these days.

imageimage

And let’s not forget the highly memorable staircase, which the kids are always seemingly running up or down together. It figures prominently in the actual house, and the front door opens right to it, just like in the film.

imageimage

In fact, it makes me wonder whether the house’s windows used to have leaded glass like they do in the film, or whether that detail was thought up by the movie makers.

We don’t get to see too much of the Hillard’s upstairs in the movie, but there are a few choice scenes worth comparing to the real estate shots.

The first is a brief glimpse at the upstairs landing. Mrs. Doubtfire is leaving Lydia’s room to go to the bathroom in this still, and Chris is about to discover she’s actually a man.

The doors and layout check out pretty decently when compared to the listing’s photos. 

imageimage

The second scene actually directly precedes the one of the landing, when Mrs. Doubtfire is quizzing eldest daughter Lydia about her homework. We get to see Lydia’s lovely pink room, a gorgeous tween setup worthy of a mood board.

image

According to the Steiner Street listing, Lydia’s is the front room, which features “built-in banquette storage in the turret with plantation shutters.” This detail might have come after the film was shot in the ’90s, or else the set designers chose to cover it up with the desk and bulky chairs we see here.

image

In any event, the house is a gorgeous one, currently being enjoyed by an undisclosed buyer. For more images of the house, visit the luxury real estate site of Steven Gothelf. All of these pictures make me want a historical house, or at least they make me want to throw the movie on, to appreciate and commemorate 25 years of the unforgettable Mrs. Doubtfire.

See What the Cast of 'Twilight' Looks Like 10 Years After the Premiere

image

It’s hard to believe it’s been ten years since the love story between Bella Swan and Edward Cullen premiered on the big screen. 

One decade later, Stephanie Meyer’s vampire franchise, Twilight, is still one of our favorites to watch, thanks to a cast that includes Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner, Anna Kendrick, Kellan Lutz, and of course, the one and only Robert Pattinson. Since 2008, the stars of the hit film have gone on to do big things in Hollywood, but they will always been Forks residents to us. 

“Every part that I’ve ever played has shaped me in such a significant way…I know from an outsider’s perspective you might have something to say about that like in general. But I kind of view it as every other thing that I’ve invested in and really loved. And I’m lucky to have had that experience,” Kristen said in 2017. “I got a lot from [Twilight] and it’s made me who I am.”

4 Celebrities Who Got Accused of Bodyshaming with "Fitspo" Posts

image

It’s not hard for me to feel physically inadequate. All I need to do is log into social media and scroll through countless fitness models and muscular dudes doing workouts that seem impossible as sweat glistens and rolls down their perfectly sculpted abs.

Usually it inspires me to work out and eat a bit healthier, which I have been doing, but no matter what, I always feel like there’s someone bigger, stronger, leaner, more vascular, and just all around sexier than I am. I mean, no matter how good I look or how hard I work, I’m never going to be Jason Momoa — it’s just not going to happen.

I don’t let it get me down that much, because that’s not something I can control so I just “gotta do me”, as the cool kids say. But for some, it’s not that simple, and they see the constant “fitspo” posts on the internet as a huge negative or an indirect form of bodyshaming.

image

Which is what recently happened with Scooby Doo: Monsters Unleashed star Sarah Michelle Gellar after she posted a few modeling pictures as a personal reminder to not overeat this Thanksgiving.

Whenever it’s Turkey Day, engorging is way, way too easy. You’ve got a big, beautiful bird in front of you. Gravy. And the desserts, my God, the endless amounts of delicious fall-themed desserts like pumpkin, sweet potato, and apple pie, or my aunt’s Yum-Yum cake. I have been eating that for years and I still have no idea what’s in it, but I can guarantee that I’m stuffing away at least 1,000 calories of that alone this Thanksgiving.

image

41-year-old Gellar’s post, with the caption “I’m just going to pin these up all over my house as a reminder not to overeat on Thursday #thanksgivingprep” seemed to anger folks, and they were quick to lambaste the actress in the comments section:

“Hey @sarahmgellar I freakin love you, but this messaging (esp for young vulnerable girls) is crap. What about someone who can do both? What about considering your messages through a body-shaming/adding to shitty culture filter before posting? Your body is gorgeous, but so are all bodies – chubby, fat, curves need lifting up, not more demonising,” one follower wrote.

Some argued that a day here and there of over-indulging isn’t going to destroy one’s waistline, but even if someone isn’t slim, that’s not necessarily a bad thing:

“One day of eating good food and enjoying tradition with your family and friends won’t change your body. And even if it did… is it bad to be anything but slim?”

image

Others felt that the castigation of Sarah was unjustified, that her post was taken way out of proportion and she wasn’t bodyshaming others at all. Instead, she was just pep-talking herself into having a body that makes her happy.

“She doesn’t wanna eat to the point where she feel set, I can relate to that, who does? That’s not fun… Why do we have to shame her for wanting to keep the shape that she has? What’s our issue that we are on here telling her she’s a part of the problem….”

I love it. And I think sometimes we just need to stop jumping to conclusions and realize that all this was, is a joke and something for her. If you don’t like it, just keep scrolling. She didn’t do anything wrong here. Have a great holiday everyone! 

image

The Veronika Decides to Die actress isn’t the only star who found themselves in a bodyshaming controversy. Actress Chloe Grace Moretz publicly apologized after press materials for her film, Red Shoes & The 7 Dwarfs appeared online.

image

People weren’t too happy with the poster’s statement that because Snow White was no longer thin that she couldn’t be beautiful. Oh, and the fact that she is shorter and clearly upset that she’s no longer her tall, languid self.

Chloe publicly apologized on Twitter for the marketing materials, completely disavowing the direction the PR team took. She said no one consulted her or her team before they went public.

imageimage

Then there were celebrities who got caught straight-up bodyshaming people, like Riverdale actor Charles Melton who once tweeted, when he was much younger, that “Fat chicks need to understand that wearing yoga pants is a privilege, not a right.”

imageimage

He was pretty savage when it came to dissing “fat people” on his Twitter account, with more than a few tweets making mean-spirited jokes at their expense. He decided to combat the negative press and social media uproar when the tweets were unearthed by making his account private.

Instagram fitness models were also called out for bodyshaming with “fitspo” posts, like this mom who got under a lot of people’s skin with her post-pregnancy bounce-back pic, which asked, “What’s your excuse?”

image

People didn’t take too kindly to the question that Maria Kang posed, and accused the mom and personal health guru of bodyshaming other moms who weren’t as trim and fit as her. It even sparked an online movement of moms who posted their own photos with their families saying that they didn’t need excuses for the ways their bodies looked.

imageimage

Do you think that people who are posting “fitspo” entries online are guilty of bodyshaming? Or do you think that celebrities and other notable figures online just welcome that kind of criticism from everyone online?

The Most Disastrous Creations Made on ‘The Great British Baking Show’

The Great British Bake Show (or The Great British Bake-Off if you’re in the U.K.) is one of the most undramatic reality competition shows on TV.

Honestly, it makes me feel a lot better about my own #cakefails. In the words of former host Sue Perkins, “It’s just a cake!” Below, a few creations that went horribly and hilariously bad.

Fans Are Convinced Jeremiah and Carmela Are on the Brink of Divorce on 'Return to Amish'

image

When Jeremiah Raber first appeared on Breaking Amish, he had a hard time adjusting to life outside the Amish community. 

However, he would do it all over again because it’s how he met his current wife, Carmela Mendez. Now, the couple are back on the TLC series Return to Amish — where they are selling Amish doughnuts together and hoping this new business will solve all their problems. 

But fans are still interested in learning more about Carmela and Jeremiah’s relationship, which started after they met on social media. 

image

This is not Jeremiah’s first marriage. 

Jeremiah, 38, was previously married to Naomi Stutzman. However, the couple filed for divorce after six years and three kids together. 

In 2005, Jeremiah was arrested for domestic violence against Naomi — and it was not the first time he was accused of being violent. “I’ve been in the hospital multiple times from this man. He was physically abusive. I have the police reports,” Naomi told CBS 21 at the time. “It’s the main reason we are not together. I had to go to the battered women’s shelter and now TLC is glorifying this man on a family show?” 

Are Carmela and Jeremiah on the brink of divorce?  

Jeremiah was arrested again in 2017 for domestic violence against Carmela, 35, after it was reported that he made several threats to harm her. 

Carmela also told police that Jeremiah “strikes her on a regular basis,” according to Radar Online. Jeremiah also accused Carmela of stealing $15,000 from him — something she admits to doing. 

image

On the premiere episode of Season 6 of Return to Amish, Carmela made it very clear the couple was still having marital problems but they are working this out in counseling. 

“Our relationship has been an emotional rollercoaster,” she said on the show. Jeremiah agreed, adding, “We found a way to forgive each other and get back together and make things work.” 

On social media, the couple is still posting photos together, so it looks like they survived another season of reality television… barely. 

Does Carmela have kids? 

While it is unclear if Carmela was married before tying the knot with Jeremiah, she does have four kids from a previous relationship. 

Was Carmela in a cult? 

Carmela shared her story on YouTube last year, revealing she was involved in an extreme religious group. She was introduced to the cult, which followed the teachings of American Christian minister William M. Branham, by a school friend and joined the “church” after being approved by the leader around age 12. 

Like the Amis, the group didn’t watch TV or listen to the radio, and followers wore modest clothing. Unlike the Amish, Carmela says theri group had a “prophet” who said he could predict the future and had a very close relationship with God. 

She eventually left the cult, but admitted to stealing clothes and makeup while a member in order to “survive.” 

“I believed everything this person said… he said he was a prophet,” Carmela explained. “He could actually predict things, things would happen… I truly felt that he was close to God.” 

Watch Carmela and Jeremiah on Return to Amish Sunday nights at 10 p.m. on TLC.

Everything to Know About the Real ‘Dirty John’ From Bravo’s New Drama

image

Bravo’s new scripted drama Dirty John premieres this month, starring Eric Bana as the titular con artist with Connie Britton as the well-off interior designer who falls for him. If the title sounds at all familiar, that’s because this show is based on a popular podcast by the same name. 

And that podcast is totally true, though the events are so dramatic it sounds like fiction. Los Angeles Times reporter Christopher Goffard wrote extensively on the story after it broke and eventually turned it into the seven-part series co-produced by the Wondery network.

Whether you’re already a big Dirty John fan or want an overview before diving into the new series, here’s everything you need to know about John Meehan, aka “Dirty John,” and the women whose lives he devastated Oh, but beware there are MAJOR SPOILERS ahead!

image

What is Dirty John about?

55-year-old John Meehan seemed nearly perfect when successful entrepreneur Debra Newell connected with him on a dating app for singles over 50. Unfortunately, Debra, who had been married and divorced four times before meeting John, didn’t have the best track record for finding quality men. But this guy seemed different.

He told her he was an anesthesiologist, that he worked in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders, and even got a few scars from his time there. He was a terrible, sloppy dresser, but with a résumé like that and his chiseled good looks, Debra was immediately smitten.

image

Her daughters didn’t like him much, so when she ended up having John move in with her after dating only five weeks, she tried to hide it from them. When they got married in Vegas on an impulse only eight weeks after their first meeting, she kept that to herself, too. 

The longer she was with John, the more her two youngest daughters, Terra and Jacquelyn, had questions. Though he said he was a doctor, Terra learned he had a degree in nursing, and both girls had a bad feeling about their new stepdad. Jacquelyn and her cousin Shad began tracking John’s movements and digging into his past.

It wasn’t until she learned her new husband had been in jail before for stalking and had several restraining orders against him, that Debbie began to understand why her children and nephew were so hostile toward John.

image

So, where is Dirty John Meehan now?

Well, first be aware that this will really spoil the end of this eight-episode series for you but the short answer is John’s dead. How he came to be that way is perhaps the most incredible part of the story. 

John turned out not only to be a serial stalker and compulsive liar but also a drug addict. Employed as a nurse anesthetist — not an anesthesiologist — John scored opiates by pretending he had given them to post-operative patients but pocketing them for himself instead, leaving them in horrendous, unimaginable pain. 

Though John seemed to have an explanation for everything Debra and her children learned about him, she left. John kept emailing and texting her, begging her to take him back. Eventually, she did, though she cut him out of her will and made it clear he wouldn’t inherit anything if she ever died — always a sign your marriage is rock-solid.

image

Debra eventually learned even more of the truth from John’s first wife, Tonia. John was a career criminal, career addict, and a total sociopath with a violent streak just under the surface. Even his family had written him off, and John made clear death threats to Tonia during their divorce.

When Debra left John for good, John began stalking her youngest daughter Terra, following her around in a rental without license plates, where he had a “kidnap kit” riding shotgun. John thought he could take down this five-foot-nothing veterinarian assistant easily, but he hadn’t counted on two things: Terra’s Australian Shepherd, Cash, and the fact that Terra, a massive Walking Dead fan, had become something of a zombie-apocalypse prepper over the years.

When he snuck up on her with a concealed knife, an incredible thing happened: Terra and Cash took him down. They both bit and clawed at the would-be murderer, who slashed at Terra with his knife. They wrestled on the ground and she managed to disarm him, grab his weapon, and stab him multiple times. One fatal blow went through his eye. Rendered brain dead, John was taken off life support four days after attacking Terra..

“The last person on Earth I’d ever think would send John to hell would be Terra,” her cousin Shad said.

image

Separating fact from fiction on Dirty John: 

Even though it’s based on a true story, Bravo’s Dirty John has taken some liberties with the story for their adaptation. The biggest difference is that Debra’s daughter, Jacquelyn, has been replaced with Veronica, a somewhat bratty, materialistic firecracker played by Juno Temple. 

So why isn’t Jacquelyn in the show?

There’s no clear answer yet,  but given the fact the LA Times didn’t use her image for their longform series in print or digital form, and she hasn’t joined her mom and sister on the talk show circuit, we’re guessing she simply didn’t want to be in the spotlight. That’s fair.

In her place, series writer and creator Alexandra Cunningham created Veronica, who seems to be an amalgam of Jacquelyn and Debra’s eldest daughter, Nicole, along with some creative license.

A far less significant difference is in the brand of Debra’s fancy car. The real Debra has a Tesla, while Connie-Britton Debra owns a Maserati. Either way, too rich for my blood!

When does Dirty John air?

The first episode is available to stream now on Hulu, YouTube, and the Bravo app, ahead of the premiere on Bravo, which is slated for Sunday, November 25 at 10 p.m. ET.

12 Happy Movies That Originally Had Shockingly Bleak Endings

image

Movie audiences love happy endings, which kind of sucks for screenwriters who love writing stories with gritty, realistic endings that aren’t always uplifting or neatly tied up in a bow. Because of that, many movies with the standard Hollywood Happy Ending ™ don’t actually start off that way. What normally happens is the film is test-screened first. If the audience hates the ending, it gets chucked and replaced with a different, happier one. It happens a lot more than you think, too. Below, a few of the biggest examples. Warning, there be spoilers ahead!
