Sarah Ferguson still considers Prince Andrew family – see her sweet tribute

Sarah Ferguson and Prince Andrew proved just how close they are on Friday when they attended Royal Ascot with their daughter Princess Beatrice, and Sarah has since paid a touching tribute to them. The mother-of-two revealed that she still considers Andrew her family, taking to Instagram to share a lovely photo of the three of them sharing a joke on the day. “Great day with my family @ascotracecourse @hrhthedukeofyork#Beatrice @princesseugenie #royalascot#racing,” she wrote next to the photo. Sarah’s choice of words delighted her fans, who often comment that they would like her and Andrew to get back together. “Lovely to see you out together as a family,” one wrote, while another said: “Get back together you two!” A third added: “Perfect shot to the world how divorced parents can and do raise happy children, congratulations on being an amazing mum.”

 

Other photos from the day saw Sarah adjusting her ex-husband’s lapel as they happily chatted away, and Sarah and Beatrice curtsying with the Queen made her entrance in the parade ring, with the 58-year-old holding onto her eldest daughter’s hand to aid her balance. Sarah looked fabulous in a navy Roland Mouret fitted dress for the occasion, which she teamed with a Philip Treacy hat and shoes by Rene Mancini. Beatrice, meanwhile, looked lovely in a dove-grey dress by The Fold, styled with Russell and Bromley heels and a pink box bag by Pop and Suki.

Princess Eugenie was not in attendance on Friday, but had attended Ascot throughout the week with the royal family, turning heads in the process with her stylish outfits. Although rarely seen out altogether, royal fans are anticipating Eugenie’s wedding in October. While Andrew and Sarah sat apart at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex‘s wedding due to royal protocol, it is thought that when it comes to their own daughter’s special day, they will be united.

Sarah gave a revealing insight into her bond with Andrew in an exclusive interview with HELLO! last year. “A table can’t stand on three legs, really, so you have the Duke and I, and the two girls. We’re a family unit and we lead by example. We support each other emotionally and we support each other health wise. At least every two weeks we sit down and communicate, the four of us.” She continued: “I think the one thing I’ve done incredibly well – although I say it myself – is that I’m a really good mum. And I think my girls shows that.”

Donald Trump Tells ‘Whimpering’ Jimmy Fallon … Be a Man!!!

 

 

It took a few days, but Donald Trump just responded in typical fashion to Jimmy Fallon saying he regrets his 2016 interview with the now-President … by challenging his manhood.

Trump tweeted out his displeasure Sunday night, saying Fallon “is now whimpering to all that he did the famous ‘hair show’ with me (where he seriously messed up my hair), & that he would have now done it differently because it is said to have ‘humanized’ me — he is taking heat.”

The Prez claims Jimmy called him after his ‘Tonight Show’ appearance to talk about the monster ratings it got, but is now backtracking. Trump added … “Be a man Jimmy!”

Fallon’s playful interview led to heavy criticism and a tumble in the ratings, and he told The Hollywood Reporter “it was definitely a down time” afterward … and looking back, he would do it differently.

Clearly, POTUS thinks he did just fine

Heather Locklear was arrested Sunday night for battery on a police officer … and this is the second time.

Locklear was taken into custody at her home shortly before midnight and booked for 2 counts of misdemeanor battery upon an officer and emergency personnel.

The original 911 call was for a disturbance. Law enforcement sources say she was heavily intoxicated when a family member called. Heather, who we’re told was extremely agitated, punched a responding deputy who was trying to separate Heather from members of her family.

Paramedics arrived and, while putting her on the gurney, she kicked an EMT.

Heather was taken to a hospital to get checked out and then was taken to jail where she was booked. She’s being held on $20,000 bail.

Locklear was placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold last week after allegedly choking her mom and attacking her dad.

Avicii – Chilling on Yacht with Drink in Hand Day Before Death

Avicii was hanging on a yacht and sipping a drink the day before his death … and appeared to be happy and healthy.

In the photo — obtained by TMZ — the world-famous DJ is chilling with a couple guys on a boat while flashing a peace sign. We’re told it was taken Thursday in Muscat, Oman … where he was staying nearby at the Muscat Hills Resort.

Avicii has a drink in his hand, but it’s unclear if it’s alcoholic or not. Avicii said in a 2013 interview he stopped drinking due to pancreatitis and was living a sober lifestyle.

As we reported … Avicii was found dead Friday morning in Muscat. The resort confirmed he was a guest and said he was extremely kind during his stay and “definitely did seem to be in good spirits while enjoying his time.” Photos taken with other guests at the resort seem to back that up.

Avicii’s brother is currently in Oman leading the charge to find out what killed him.

Legend of the month – Stephen Hawking

 

 

 

 

 

Professor Stephen William Hawking was born on 8th January 1942 (exactly 300 years after the death of Galileo) in Oxford, England. His parents’ house was in north London but during the second world war Oxford was considered a safer place to have babies. When he was eight his family moved to St. Albans, a town about 20 miles north of London. At the age of eleven, Stephen went to St. Albans School and then on to University College, Oxford (1952); his father’s old college. Stephen wanted to study mathematics although his father would have preferred medicine. Mathematics was not available at University College, so he pursued physics instead. After three years and not very much work, he was awarded a first class honours degree in natural science.

In October 1962, Stephen arrived at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP) at the University of Cambridge to do research in cosmology, there being no-one working in that area in Oxford at the time. His supervisor was Dennis Sciama, although he had hoped to get Fred Hoyle who was working in Cambridge. After gaining his PhD (1965) with his thesis titled ‘Properties of Expanding Universes‘, he became, first, a research fellow (1965) then Fellow for Distinction in Science (1969) at Gonville & Caius college. In 1966 he won the Adams Prize for his essay ‘Singularities and the Geometry of Space-time’. Stephen moved to the Institute of Astronomy (1968), later moving back to DAMTP (1973), employed as a research assistant, and published his first academic book, The Large Scale Structure of Space-Time, with George Ellis. During the next few years, Stephen was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (1974) and Sherman Fairchild Distinguished Scholar at the California Institute of Technology (1974). He became a Reader in Gravitational Physics at DAMTP (1975), progressing to Professor of Gravitational Physics (1977). He then held the position of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics (1979-2009). The chair was founded in 1663 with money left in the will of the Reverend Henry Lucas who had been the Member of Parliament for the University. It was first held by Isaac Barrow and then in 1669 by Isaac Newton.  From 2009, Stephen was employed as the Dennis Stanton Avery and Sally Tsui Wong-Avery Director of Research at DAMTP.

Professor Stephen Hawking worked on the basic laws which govern the universe. With Roger Penrose he showed that Einstein’s general theory of relativity implied space and time would have a beginning in the Big Bang and an end in black holes (1970). These results indicated that it was necessary to unify general relativity with quantum theory, the other great scientific development of the first half of the 20th century. One consequence of such a unification that he discovered was that black holes should not be completely black, but rather should emit ‘Hawking’ radiation and eventually evaporate and disappear (1974). Another conjecture is that the universe has no edge or boundary in imaginary time. This would imply that the way the universe began was completely determined by the laws of science. Towards the end of his life, Stephen was working with colleagues on a possible resolution to the black hole information paradox, where debate centres around the conservation of information.

His many publications included The Large Scale Structure of Spacetime with G F R Ellis, General Relativity: An Einstein Centenary Survey, with W Israel, and 300 Years of Gravitation, with W Israel. Among the popular books Stephen Hawking published are his best seller A Brief History of Time, Black Holes and Baby Universes and Other Essays, The Universe in a Nutshell, The Grand Design and My Brief History.

Professor Stephen Hawking received thirteen honorary degrees. He was awarded CBE (1982), Companion of Honour (1989) and the Presidential Medal of Freedom (2009). He was the recipient of many awards, medals and prizes, most notably the Fundamental Physics prize (2013), Copley Medal (2006) and the Wolf Foundation prize (1988). He was a Fellow of the Royal Society and a member of the US National Academy of Sciences and the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.

In 1963 Stephen was diagnosed with ALS, a form of Motor Neurone Disease, shortly after his 21st birthday. In spite of being wheelchair-bound and dependent on a computerised voice system for communication Stephen continued to combine family life (he has three children and three grandchildren) with his research into theoretical physics, in addition to an extensive programme of travel and public lectures. Thanks to the Zero-G Corporation, he experienced weightlessness in 2007 and always hoped to make it into space one day.

 

Verne Troyer Dead at 49

 

 

 

Verne Troyer — best known for playing Mini-Me in the ‘Austin Powers’ comedies, and for being one of the shortest men in the world — has died.

Verne died Saturday, according to a statement from his family. We’d been told he was on some form of life support since being taken to the hospital earlier this month after cops got a report he was drunk and suicidal, and was treated for possible alcohol poisoning.

Verne’s family says during the recent adversity, “he was baptized while surrounded by his family.”

He also struggled with alcoholism for years and had been to rehab many times.

Troyer was born with the genetic disorder known as achondroplasia dwarfism, but said growing up on a farm in Michigan he was never treated differently by his parents than his average-sized siblings.

Verne began his Hollywood career in 1994 as a stunt double for Baby Bink in the film “Baby’s Day Out.” He then landed small roles in “Men in Black” and “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” … before making it big as Mini-Me in 1999’s “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.”

He continued to land bit roles in comedies and appeared on many popular reality shows over the years … like “Celebrity Juice,” “Celebrity Wife Swap,” and “The Surreal Life.”

Verne was 49.

Ewan McGregor’s wife breaks her silence as actor files for divorce

Ewan McGregor‘s estranged wife Eve Mavrakis has spoken of her “upset” following the star’s decision to file for divorce. Ewan, 46, cited “irreconcilable differences” in official paperwork to end his 22-year marriage to Eve this week. Speaking to the Sun on Sunday, Eve said: “It’s disappointing and upsetting but my main concern is our four children are ok.” According to TMZ, divorce papers show that Ewan is seeking joint custody of the couple’s children youngest three children. Eve, meanwhile, is said to have requested sole custody with visitation rights for the Hollywood star. HELLO! Online has contacted Ewan’s rep for comment.

Ewan and Eve decided to separate in May – although the news did not become public knowledge until October, when Ewan was spotted kissing his Fargo co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead in a London café. The following month Eve broke her silence on the split with a simple but heartbreaking sentence. A follower had taken to the comments section on her Instagram account to express shock at Ewan’s new romance, to which Eve replied: “What can I do?”

Earlier this month, Ewan stunned fans at the Golden Globes when he thanked both Eve and Mary Elizabeth during his acceptance speech. “I want to take a moment to just say thank you to Eve, who always stood by me for 22 years,” he said. “And our four children Clara, Esther, Jamyan and Anouk.” The actor then went on to mention his new girlfriend Mary Elizabeth, 33, who he met while filming his role in the successful show. “I’ve always loved being an actor and I got amazing actors to hang out with, and there wouldn’t have been any Emmett without David Thewlis and Michael Stuhlbard and Carrie Coon. And there wouldn’t have been any Ray without Mary Elizabeth Winstead.” Ewan concluded.

Ewan and Eve were together for 22 years and share four daughters: Clara, 21, Jamyan, 16, Esther, 15, and Anouk, 6. Mary Elizabeth, meanwhile, was previously married to director Riley Stearns, but the couple announced their split in May after seven years of marriage.

Princess Eugenie shows off engagement ring in newly-released official pictures

Official photographs of Princess Eugenie and her fiancé Jack Brooksbank, taken by photographer Jonathan Brady, have been released by Buckingham Palace to mark the couple’s engagement. One picture sees the happy couple embrace, with the 27-year-old royal proudly showing off her dazzling engagement ring. The beautiful ring contains a padparadscha sapphire surrounded by diamonds. The photos, which were taken in the Picture Gallery at Buckingham Palace, come just moments after Eugenie’s parents, the Duke and Duchess of York, confirmed the news in a statement, which read: “The Duke and Duchess of York are delighted to announce the engagement of Princess Eugenie to Mr Jack Brooksbank. Her Royal Highness and Mr Jack Brooksbank became engaged in Nicaragua earlier this month. The wedding will take place in the autumn of 2018 at St George’s Chapel in Windsor, with further details to be announced in due course.”

Jack and Eugenie are set to marry at St George’s Chapel, Windsor – just months after Prince Harry and his bride-to-be Meghan Markle will walk down the aisle. Jack’s parents, Nicola and George Brooksbank, also shared their joy in a brief statement. “We could not be more delighted with the news of the engagement. We are completely over the moon and are very excited for them both,” they said. Eugenie has been in a relationship with Jack for more than six years, after they were introduced to each other during a ski break in Verbier, Switzerland.

Their relationship has gone from strength to strength and continued even when Eugenie moved to Manhattan to work for an online auction house. The son of an accountant, Jack was educated at £10,000-a-term Stowe school in Buckinghamshire and with the support of his parents chose to work in hospitality. After spending several years working at Chelsea’s Admiral Codrington, a pub and private dining room, and at The Markham Inn, he finally went on to become the Brand Ambassador of Casamigos Tequila, the award winning brand owned by George Clooney, Rande Gerber and Mike Meldman, which was recently sold.

Bill Cosby Fans Out in Philly Goes Public On a Wing And a Prayer

Bill Cosby must really like the Eagles’ chances against the Vikings, ’cause he mustered up enough courage to show his face in public rockin’ their gear.

The disgraced comedian resurfaced Sunday in Philly wearing an Eagles windbreaker and hat as he stopped off at a coffee shop ahead of the team’s NFC Championship game.

We haven’t seen much of him since his mistrial last summer, when the jury couldn’t reach a verdict on charges of sexual assault. His retrial begins in April.

Prosecutors in the Cosby case asked a judge last week to allow 19 additional women to testify against him, in the hopes of establishing a pattern of sexual assault. The judge, Steven T. O’Neill, has yet to rule on the request.

Looks like Cosby’s liking his chances, too, at this point … we’re sensing no shame here.
