Weird as it is, turning-88 Pat Boone — like Martin & Lewis and Sal Mineo — was photographed naked and showering in the ‘50s. The thought was any nudity would never be seen as it was unprintable (then). Cut to: Any photo that exists gets seen. https://t.co/PM2TZVyYOPpic.twitter.com/VF4Yse8KF7
Not-so-majestic commentator (Image via video still)
Amazing! Josh Pieters and Archie Manners, pranksters based in the UK, set up a slate of self-professed royals experts to comment on the big Meghan Markle/Prince Harry interview ... when none of them had ever seen it.
“In the interview, to my mind, this was an actress giving one of her great performances. From start to finish, Meghan. Was. Acting,” says EIC of Majesty Magazine Ingrid Seward — who was, as it turns out, acting as if she had seen the interview. She even characterized the interview.
Victoria Arbiter, who actually works for CNN as a royal commentator, also fell into the trap, noting that Oprah had asked tough but sympathetic questions.
One of the commentators used to work for the Queen!
None of these people should ever be used as an expert on the royals again, and certainly the EIC of Majesty should be fired immediately.
I found Meghan Markle to be remarkably empathetic and forthright and modern in her explosive sit-down with Oprah Winfrey. The seasoned interviewer seemed, at times, gobsmacked by what Meghan and Harry were telling her, including:
√ Markle was, at five months pregnant, suicidal — and disallowed by the Palace from seeking treatment.
√ Contrary to tabloid reports, Meghan never made Kate Middleton cry, but Kate did make Meghan cry. (For which she apologized and was forgiven.)
