Pregnant Duchess Meghan Markle Was Called "Fat" By Fellow Volunteer At An Animal Charity

Posted on Wed Jan 16th, 2019 11:16am PDT       By X17 Staff

Oh no she didn't! A fellow volunteer at one of Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle's new patronages -- the animal charity Mayhew -- called the pregnant royal "fat!" And Meghan loved it!

The gracious duchess was being greeted by fellow volunteers at the animal shelter and one elderly woman Peggy McEachrom said, "What a lovely lady you are. And a fat lady!" Markle laughed and said, "I'll take it!" McEachrom, originally from Jamaica, went on to speculate that Markle is carrying a boy. She and Prince Harry have decided not to learn the gender of their baby until the birth so Meghan replied, "Oh, you think it’s going to be a boy?” It’s a surprise. We don’t know what we’re having. I ask everyone what they think, and everyone has a very strong opinion about it."

The visit just got cuter, as Markle bonded with a pup Roobarb and posed for photos.

Something we think is worth noting, too -- in contrast with U.S. First Lady Melania Trump, Meghan seems a bit more considerable about her wardrobe for public appearance (and/or she has a way better and more intelligent stylist). After Melania has worn a "I don't really care, do you?" jacket to visit flood victims, heels to visit hurricane victims in Puerto Rico, and an English colonial-era pith hat during her trip to Africa. Duchess Meghan, by contrast, chose a Stella McCartney Falabella tote for her visit to the animal charity. McCartney is, of course, British; so that's a plus -- but more than anything, she's one of the very few vegan designers -- no leather, no fur, no animal testing, no animal products. So when volunteering for animals, she chose an animal-friendly designer. Makes sense, right? Thoughtful, right? Maybe Melania should take note ...


Gwen Stefani And Blake Shelton To Announce Engagement Soon!

Posted on Wed Jan 16th, 2019 11:05am PDT       By X17 Staff

Wedding bells are ringing! Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton's engagement announcement is forthcoming, according to a new Us Weekly.

So that means he's already proposed ... that means they're ALREADY engaged! The two Voice coaches have been dating since 2015 and apparently Stefani's three boys are in love with the country singer. Gwen and Blake have collab'ed together musically; travelled together; worked together -- they've done it all and their relationship has endured so putting a ring on it seems like the next natural step!

Back in April, Gwen gushed to Ellen about her boyfriend and hinting at marriage ...

So when will these two start sending out invites? And before that ... how will they make the big announcement? Probably like all celebs (and the rest of humanity) these days -- our bet is that it'll be on social media!


Jeff Bezos' And Mistress Lauren Sanchez's Families Already Knew Of Their Affair Before Their Cheating Scandal Broke

Posted on Wed Jan 16th, 2019 10:43am PDT       By X17 Staff

Amazon chief Jeff Bezos' affair with his friend Patrick Whitesell's wife Lauren Sanchez gets even MORE scandalous!

We all thought their respective spouses were blindsided by the National Enqirer report that outed the couple's affair but we're finding out that's NOT the case. Whitesell, a bigwig Hollywood agent, and MacKenzie, a novelist and social activist, already knew their spouses were hooking up, according to a new People magazine report.

It wasn't until the news went public that Jeff and MacKenzie announced their separation via Twitter but they'd been planning that statement: "Their families dealt with this in the fall," a source told the mag.

The source says the two struck up a relationship while working on several projects together and "gradually" developed romantic feelings for each other. But it was Bezos and Whitesell that were first friends and then dinners with spouses led to Jeff and Lauren striking up a relationship on their own. And seriously ... WHO DOES PROJECTS WITH THEIR FRIEND'S WIFE???!!!

Well MacKenzie's the one who'll be laughing all the way to the bank. The richest man in the world (said to be worth $137 BILLION) didn't have a pre-nup with his wife so she'll be 50% and PERHAPS controlling interest in Amazon. What will investors do? Well so far, Wall Street doesn't give a damn. If we all keep subscribing to Prime and buying our entire LIVES on, the e-commerce site should continue to thrive.

Paris Jackson is getting the help she needs ... the daughter of Michael Jackson announced via Instagram: "Yes i’ve taken a break from work and social media and my phone because it can be too much sometimes, and everyone deserves a break, but i am happy and healthy and feeling better than ever! … hope you guys’ new year started out with lots of love and light and all the things. i’ll be back soon!! xxox."

Paris has been open about her battles with depression, self-harm and addiction, the sometimes-model has even admitted she attempted suicide twice, in an interview with Rolling Stone in 2017.

So what's going on now with Paris? "After a busy year of work engagements that took her all over the globe, Paris decided that she needed to take some time off to reboot, realign and prioritize her physical and emotional health,” a source tells Us Weekly. “She checked herself into a treatment facility to aid in her wellness plan and is looking forward to coming out of this revitalized and ready to tackle the exciting new projects that await her."

Here's hoping she gets the help she needs and comes out happy and healthy!


Justin Bieber Visits "Brain Health" Center Again With Wife Hailey Baldwin

Posted on Wed Jan 16th, 2019 8:38am PDT       By X17 Staff

What the heck is going on?! Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin were BACK at the Amen Clinic in Encino yesterday -- a clinic that brands itself a "psychiatric and brain health care" treatment center. We're worried!

With all the doctors' visits the couple's been making and with the scary trembling episodes (see HERE and HERE) Justin's had over the past year, we're concerned there's something serious going on ... but at least he's getting help?

Later Tuesday evening, Hailey got caught in the rain after a meeting in Beverly Hills and as she walked to her car in the dark, she looked somber ... maybe even sad. She's definitely standing by her man and helping him through whatever it is he's going through. In fact, Justin's mom Pattie Mallette gushed about her daughter-in-law recently, saying: "What a gift!" as the caption of a selfie with the young model kissing her cheek. And it was taken in LA yesterday, so mama Bieber's in town! Is she visiting with her son as he seeks treatment?

What a gift! 😍

Rob Kardashian Scores A Dinner Date With Alexis Skyy After Calling Her His #WCW On Instagram

Posted on Tue Jan 15th, 2019 9:50am PDT       By X17 Staff

Let's hope this chick doesn't use him like his baby mama did!

Rob Kardashian let it be known that he was crushing on Instagram model Alexis Skyy by calling her his #WCW on social media, and in a matter of hours, the reclusive reality star was cooking dinner with her in momager Kris Jenner's kitchen. He works quickly!

This new romance is bound to piss off his ex Blac Chyna, who coincidentally got into an altercation with Skyy at a nightclub over the weekend. The former stripper allegedly threw a drink at Rob's lady and demanded she get out of her VIP section, and now they're officially rivals.

Kimmy K's little bro is already feeling defensive over the relationship, too!

"Rob Kardashian never learns! Leave the pettiness to the ladies. Alexis just doing all this to spite Chyna! Grow tf up Rob," one Twitter user wrote, and he immediately fired back. "Me and Alexis known each other for 5 years so stop with that," he responded.

He doesn't have the greatest track record with women, so we hope this works out!


Ben And Jen Brave The Rain With Son Samuel

Posted on Tue Jan 15th, 2019 8:50am PDT       By X17 Staff

They're not going to let the weather interrupt their routine.

We caught Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner braving the LA rain to run errands yesterday, and the actor kept warm and showed his Boston pride in a Patriots jacket.

The Peppermint actress' romance with boyfriend John Miller sounds like it's heating up, and her ex isn't exactly pleased according to a new report.

"Ben is used to his ex-wife dropping everything for him, but that’s all changed and he’s no longer at the top of her list of priorities. He winces whenever Jen brings up John’s name. He can’t help finding faults with him, even though John’s the nicest guy and hasn’t done anything wrong," a source dished to In Touch.

“Jen trusts John. She didn’t go into this romance lightly. She’s realized that he’s the guy for her. She knows some people think it’s too soon, but now that their romance is no longer a secret, they want to be together 24/7. After all that she’s been through with Ben — the cheating, the addiction relapses, the public humiliation — her relationship with John is like a dream. Jen says that getting treated like a queen by John has taken some getting used to, but she’s loving it," the source added.

We wonder how long it will be before Batman gets back on the dating scene?

Straight from the horse's mouth!

Kim Kardashian and her sisters Khloe and Kourtney appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night, and the reality star finally confirmed the rumors that she's adding baby #4 to the mix!

"We do [have a due date]," she revealed, noting that it's "sometime soon." Wow!

So why did she decide to candidly drop the bombshell on the late night talk show?

"Well, it’s out there. … I got drunk at our Christmas Eve party and I told some people. I can’t remember who I told, because I never get drunk," she joked.

Kimmy K wasn't the only one answering the hard questions, though! Andy Cohen asked the gals about Tristan Thompson's cheating scandal and Khloe's decision to stay with him, as well as how Kourtney would react if Scott Disick got engaged to Sofia Richie... you gotta watch!
