Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Reportedly Eyeing a Home in Los Angeles

While the world anxiously awaits an official announcement of the royal baby’s arrival, rumors regarding pretty much all other aspects of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s personal lives seem like they’re picking up speed. Granted, some of the most recent rumors have centered on the ongoing details of the birth of Harry and Meghan’s firstborn, but where the royals will put down roots after their newborn’s arrival has also become a conversation topic, to put it lightly. So where does the needle turn now? Turns out, it’s a lot closer (relatively, anyway) than we originally thought: California.

According to new reports from British tabloid The Sun, Meghan is gunning for more permanent digs in L.A., a city she previously called home for years before dating and moving in with Prince Harry. “Meghan definitely wants a place in Los Angeles—she loves the city, the lifestyle and climate,” a source told The Sun. “Ultimately, she is a California girl and can breathe easier there. Hollywood is in her DNA, and I think it is where she has always wanted to keep a solid footing. Spending time there would also allow her some freedom and independence from both the Palace and the Press—and more control over her life and the people around her. She is a duchess in the UK, but could be a queen in L.A.”

OK, then. Obviously, these rumors need to be taken with a grain of salt. It feels like just yesterday the Sunday Times reported that the royal parents-to-be were toying with the idea of moving to Africa for two or three years to oversee charitable missions, after all.

“They’re not looking to buy anywhere just yet as they’ve only just finished the renovations on Frogmore Cottage. But they’re definitely eyeing up a place in California,” another source told the outlet. As this second source points out, the royals have only just finished the Frogmore house renovations, which could deter them from making a permanent move to the U.S. anytime in the near future.

Ultimately, no matter where the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decide to nest after the birth of their firstborn, we have a feeling the rumors aren’t anywhere near close to dying down.

Selena Gomez Gave the Sweetest Toast at Her Bodyguard’s Wedding

To say Selena Gomez is a jack-of-all-trades would be an understatement. The multitalented singer, songwriter, actor and performer has accrued a whole list of accolades in her short time in the spotlight. But she also keeps it real, heading home for her friends’ bachelorette parties and weddings to be with them on their big days. It was her bodyguard’s turn to tie the knot recently, and of course Gomez was there for him, too—and as it turns out, she even gave a super-sweet toast at his wedding.

On Friday, Gomez attended the nuptials of her longtime bodyguard in Redlands, California. Between posing for pictures with guests and showing off her skills as child whisperer with the ceremony’s youngest attendees, Gomez took the mic to offer up an adorably thoughtful toast to the newlyweds, commenting on her first impressions of the bride and how happy the married pair seemed to make each other.

“I had the pleasure of meeting Melissa, and I was thrilled, first off, ’cause she’s a badass. Second, because of how much you love her,” Gomez said to her bodyguard, the groom, in her speech. “It’s so special. I’m very honored to be here and to celebrate you both…God bless you guys. We will be praying for you, and thank you so much.”

Prior to Friday’s outing, Gomez has been calculated with her public appearances, slowly coming back into the public eye after a brief hiatus to focus on her health. In an Instagram post back in January, the star addressed her time away and thanked fans for the continued support. “Last year was definitely a year of self-reflection, challenges and growth. It’s always those challenges which show you who you are and what you are capable of overcoming,” she wrote. “Trust me, it’s not easy, but I am proud of the person I am becoming and look forward to the year ahead. Love you all.”

But despite her less-than-easy last year, Gomez was all smiles and heartfelt words at her bodyguard’s wedding—we’re pretty sure none of the guests will be forgetting her or her speech anytime soon.

A Nurse Was Denied a Marathon World Record—Because She Was Wearing Pants

When nurse Jessica Anderson completed last Sunday’s (April 28) London Marathon in a speedy three hours, eight minutes and 22 seconds, the runner was poised to hold the world record title for fastest marathon completed in a nurse’s uniform. But despite the fact that Anderson had wrapped London’s historic race 32 seconds faster than the previous titleholder, Guinness World Records ultimately denied Anderson the title—and discounted the marathoner’s attempt altogether.

The organization’s reasoning? She was wearing pants.

According to official Guinness World Record rules, a nurse’s uniform is categorized as being “a blue or white dress, a pinafore apron and a traditional nurse’s cap,” according to the Independent. Which, yes, is incredibly outdated.

Anderson, who has worked on the Acute Admissions Unit at the Royal London Hospital for nearly seven years, ran the marathon in the scrubs she normally wears to work as a nurse. The GWR asserts that her attire strayed too far from this definition and too closely represented a doctor’s uniform.

Upon learning of her disqualification due to archaic dress code formalities, Anderson told Runner’s World she was “quite taken aback”—and rightfully so. “Some of the nurses I work with do wear dresses, but mostly we wear scrubs or a tunic and trousers,” she told the magazine.

GWR has since pledged to look into its costume policy, issuing a statement to address claims that its requirements are wholly sexist. “Inclusiveness and respect are values that Guinness World Records holds extremely dear, and while we always need to ensure we can differentiate between categories, it is quite clear that this record title is long overdue a review, which we will conduct as a priority in the coming days,” the organization said.

On Instagram, Anderson addressed the race, and the controversy, head-on: “Yesterday was incredible!! From having @mayob123 as the best pacer I could wish for, to crossing the line with the man of my dreams @leon_cerrone ❤️ and support from so many wonderful friends all along the way @vonski_ @clairebernwilson @sazzerf @makeitlooknice , lots of friends from @nhsbartshealth plus @daddydarkrdc and the one and only @run.dem.crew I couldn’t have asked for a better day 🙏Ps. @guinnessworldrecords this is what the fastest female marathon runner in a nurse’s uniform ACTUALLY looks like (3.08.22 ⏰)”

Despite the controversy, Anderson told Runner’s World that, if nothing else, she hopes those in charge at GWR will retire sexist stereotypes: “I’m sure Guinness World Records don’t intend to cause offense, but it would be nice if they decided to revise their criteria instead of reinforcing old gender stereotypes.”

The ‘Game of Thrones’ Showrunners Dropped a Concerning Hint About the White Walkers

Warning: Spoilers ahead!

If there’s one thing Game of Thrones knows how to do, it’s to successfully execute a major twist (as proved a few seasons ago with that time they brought Jon Snow back from the dead). But it’s fair to say that after last week’s Battle of Winterfell—featuring our living faves versus the Army of the Dead—we all thought that the White Walkers were officially taken care of. That sweet sense of relief, of course, came courtesy of underdog Arya Stark taking out the Night King with her dagger of Valyrian steel, also shattering the White Walkers.

Because Jimmy Kimmel knows fans have a ton of questions about what on earth is going to happen on the show next, Kimmel had Game of Thrones‘ showrunners, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, on last week to chat about the show—and answer a few questions. GoT‘s cast and crew are famously sworn to secrecy about upcoming plot points, but that didn’t stop Kimmel from giving it his best shot.

“A couple of questions—I don’t know if you’ll be able to answer them,” Kimmel addressed the showrunners. “Are we for sure done with the White Walkers?”

After a conspicuous few seconds, Benioff had an answer—kind of. “We’re not gonna answer that.”

Of course, that could mean quite a lot—as well as absolutely nothing. Benioff could genuinely have been trying not to give away a secret—or he could have known how desperate viewers are for answers and just winding them up with that hesitant pause. At this point, honestly, the biggest twist of all would be that the White Walkers really are gone.

Watch it below—and then gear up for tonight’s episode.

11 TV Shows and Movies to Watch the Week of May 5, 2019

If you’re anything like me, then your to-do list is sky-high. The clothes on my floor are a glaring reminder I need to do laundry. I have nothing in my refrigerator except a bottle of ketchup, so it’s time to go grocery shopping. Oh, and I have my actual job to do, too. But I’m willing to push all of that aside for these 11 TV shows and movies. After all, who needs fresh fruit in the house when there’s a new season of The Real Housewives of Potomac to freshen up your life? I’m kidding, obviously. Go grocery shopping and do your job, but also put some time aside for what’s new in entertainment this week. Or maybe procrastinate your responsibilities a little bit. Cleaning your bathroom can wait until after watching Monday’s Bachelorette reunion special.

Below, all the TV shows and movies to watch this week:

Mindy Kaling Says B.J. Novak Is Her Daughter’s Godfather

Mindy Kaling and B.J. Novak’s “weird as hell” (Kaling’s words) relationship has long been a source of joy for fans, whether they’ve been full-on dating, skewing a little more than friends, or platonic. No matter their relationship status, it’s safe to say they have a strong history, though: As Kaling shared in a recent interview with Good Housekeeping, she’s actually named Novak her daughter’s godfather. (She gave birth to Katherine in December 2017.)

Kaling also took the opportunity to comment on rumors she and Novak are low-key dating—something the two pretty much get asked about all the time. After Kaling declined to share who Katherine’s father is (as is her right), you can bet the rumors just kept growing.

“If I was on the outside looking at it, I would think the same thing,” she told the magazine, before explaining that Novak is the baby’s godfather. “But the truth is that B.J. is so much more like family now than a platonic friend. He’s the godfather to my daughter, he comes over like once a week. Sometimes he’ll come over just to hang out with her.”

The two first met back in the NBC writers’ room before co-starring as Kelly and Ryan in The Office (shippers of the on-again-off-again on-screen couple still mourn) almost 15 years ago. So yeah, it makes sense that the two would be close—and it’s also great to see two people who remain that way after they’ve dated.

“In the When Harry Met Sally version of platonic friends, I too think that’s strange,” Kaling told Good Housekeeping. “But when you’ve known someone for as long as I’ve known him—the time that we met each other, which was like 24. Now, we’re both almost 40. It’s such a long time that he truly is just a part of my family.”

Casting Directors Wanted Charlize Theron in ‘Wonder Woman’—as Wonder Woman’s Mom

Safe to say Charlize Theron is a big deal: Her IMDb history spans from rom-coms like her new movie, Long Shot, to serious dramas like Monster and action hits like Mad Max: Fury Road and Atomic Blonde—and she’s won an Oscar (for Monster) to boot. But some of her recent casting talks aren’t what you might have expected: Theron opened up recently about being in talks for a role in the first Wonder Woman—but it wasn’t exactly one she’d thought about.

On Watch What Happens Live, Theron said she that casting agents actually wanted Theron to play Wonder Woman’s mom. “This is a great of example of how Hollywood slaps you in the face when you start aging,” she explained. “So somebody had said to me, ‘Oh, there’s action on this thing, Wonder Woman—we just want to make you aware of it.’ And I was like, ‘I’m just not familiar with it … I mean, what does Wonder Woman do?’ And this person said, ‘No, it’s for Wonder Woman’s mom.’”

This hypothetical casting scenario makes no sense. At 43, Theron is only nine years older than Gadot, making it far more realistic for them to be sisters than mother and daughter. The role of Hippolyta eventually went to Connie Nielsen (who is 53). “It was the defining moment where I crossed over,” Theron added. “And I wasn’t fully aware of it.”

Needless to say, those talks didn’t continue. It’s ageism that’s based in sexism—as we wrote four years ago, pre-Time’s Up and pre-#MeToo, age gaps have long been raising eyebrows in Hollywood, whether they’re familial or romantic.

Watch Theron’s interview below:

How Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Are Spending Their Time Waiting for the Royal Baby

If it feels like the only things anyone is talking about online these days are Game of Thrones and the royal baby, you wouldn’t be totally wrong. Many of us are anxiously awaiting the arrival of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry‘s firstborn with the same level of anticipation as finding out who will end up on the Iron Throne.

Speculation has been wild about Baby Sussex, with people reaching for explanations about why Markle hasn’t given birth yet, instead of the logical conclusion that even royals can’t control nature. (Her due date was reportedly in late April or early May.) Buckingham Palace has issued statements that confirm that the baby has not been born and that the media will be alerted when the Markle goes into labor. But you know who’s not concerned with all the nonsense? The Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Basically, they’re just chilling at Frogmore Cottage. “They’re in their own bubble at the moment,” a friend of the couple told Harper’s Bazaar. “Meg is with the most important people in her life … she’s calm.” The friend adds that Markle is “calm and content. She’s got this.”

It’s been previously reported that the duchess’s mom, Doria Ragland, is already in Windsor for the birth of her first grandchild. And the couple have welcomed some royal visitors as well, including the queen, Kate Middleton, and Prince William. A source told Entertainment Tonight that the Sussexes are enjoying this “love-filled time” and that Markle has felt “so much compassion from her new family.”

Another ET source says that Markle is “looking forward to the birth.” It’s good to hear that all the noise from the internet and the outside world hasn’t fazed the couple, especially Markle—after all, it must be wild to have something so personal be part of the global news cycle.

33 Best Movies on Netflix May 2019 – What To Watch on Netflix

We’ve all been there: It’s Friday night, and you’ve agreed to host a movie night, but no one can figure out what to watch. One tactic I tried when this happened to me was having all my guests write choices on slips of paper, and we randomly drew from a bowl. The problem with that, though, is your friends with no taste might throw in some horrible selections—like Boogeyman II, which is what we ended up watching that night. (I learned you don’t need to see Boogeyman to figure out the plot. It’s pretty straightforward and…awful.)

The point is, don’t let this happen to you! There are plenty of fantastic movies out there to watch at your next gathering—and most of them are streaming on Netflix. Here are the best ones to ensure your movie night will be a success. And check back often: We’ll keep updating this list as more become available for streaming.
