Meghan Markle Will Help Race Relations w/ Royals ... Says Diana Biographer

4/20/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Andrew Morton, author of the most famous book on Princess Diana, says Meghan Markle holds a very important key for Royal Family's image.

Morton tells us Meghan becoming a Duchess after marrying Prince Harry is a much-needed step forward for the Royals after a checkered past where issues of race are concerned.

He says Meghan won't have to go around "kicking shins" to impart a sense of change at Kensington or Buckingham Palace -- her presence alone will do the trick.

Morton just wrote a new biography, "Meghan: A Hollywood Princess" ... and he'll have much more to say about her in next week's "Spilling Royal Tea" podcast. Meanwhile, check out this week's episode.

Gwyneth Paltrow Wedding Rehearsal(?) Brings Out Hollywood's Finest

4/15/2018 7:18 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Do not doubt Gwyneth Paltrow's far reaching star power, 'cause she drummed up some the biggest names in Hollywood for what may have been practice for her forthcoming nuptials.

Tons of A-list actors and actresses poured out of the Los Angeles Theatre in Downtown L.A. Saturday night for an event many are calling Gwyneth's and her fiance Brad Falchuk's wedding rehearsal. They all got grilled, but no one copped to what was going on inside. Rehearsal dinner, engagement party? Nobody would say for sure. 

Still, it was awesome seeing a lot of the most famous stars of the past two decades together in one building -- Reese Witherspoon, Steven Spielberg, Julia Roberts, Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore, Cameron Diaz, Rob Lowe, Jon Favreau, and more were spotted leaving Gwyneth's rumored run-through ... and they were all smiles. Bodes well for wedding day!

As we reported ... Gwyneth got engaged to be married again this past January, splashing the news on the front cover of her Goop issue that month. 

This will be the second marriage for both Gwyneth and Brad. She was married to Chris Martin -- with whom she's well known for consciously uncoupling -- and started dating Brad before her divorce with Chris was finalized in 2016. 

Meghan Markle Flies in to Chicago To Complete UK Visa Application

4/12/2018 2:36 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle was back in the States this week to take a major step in becoming a permanent UK citizen ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry.

Eyewitnesses tell us Meghan attempted to be as incognito as possible -- with 4 bodyguards in tow -- when she entered the VFS Global UK Visa Application Centre Thursday in Chicago. We're told she was there to finalize her application for a UK visa.

The whole thing only took about 10 minutes, and the entire office was cleared for her. We're told she was friendly with the staff. As for her disguise -- shades and a White Sox cap to blend in with locals.

Meghan forked over about $1,500, maybe a little more, for premium processing -- so she should get her visa within a few days ... according to our sources. 

Based on the visa application criteria, she most likely submitted for a family visa, and applied as a partner or spouse. That visa requires her to confirm all previous marriages, and her plans to marry or become a civil partner within 6 months of arriving in the UK.

We can hear her now ... "Maybe you've heard of my fiance."

After 6 months, Meghan can go for permanent citizenship, which Kensington Palace has said she'll do. No fast track, though ... that process can take up to 3 years.

Kate Upton My Engagement Ring Almost As Big As Verlander's World Series Ring

4/4/2018 7:33 AM PDT
Breaking News

Justin Verlander won the World Series ... Kate Upton is winning at life -- if you use giant diamonds to keep score. 

The Houston Astros pitcher let his supermodel wife rock his brand new World Series ring -- on the same hand as her massive engagement ring ... and it's a kind of photo that would make Drew Brees blush. 

The World Series ring -- which Verlander got on Tuesday -- is 10.40 carats with 214 diamonds, 16 natural blue sapphires and 9 natural orange sapphires.

The ring has 11 custom diamonds that make up the "H" on the top of the piece -- one for every playoff victory ... and 101 diamonds overall on the top (one for every regular season win). 

There are 56 diamonds which surround the "H" -- representing each season the Astros played until the first franchise title. 

The engagement ring is reportedly 8 carats and worth $1.5 million.  

Good Lord. 

Paris Hilton, Chris Zylka Prenup ... Check

3/30/2018 6:37 AM PDT

Paris Hilton insists when she says "I do" to Chris Zylka it's gonna be forever, but just in case ... they have a prenup.

We got Paris and Chris Thursday at LAX, and we asked them to settle it once and for all ... prenup or no prenup. After all, Paris' parents were split on whether she should get one.

Chris starts out ... something about gentlemen who marry rich ladies should not be askin' for a prenup. That's what you call a truism. But then he spills the truth.

Paris, on the other hand, makes it sound like a prenup is superfluous, but just in case ...

Richard Sherman Legion of Boom Reunion At His Badass Beach Wedding!!

Breaking News

Richard Sherman tied the knot with his longtime GF Tuesday in the Dominican Republic ... and the entire Legion of Boom was there to see him off!!

Sherman might be a member of the hated 49ers now, but the O.G. L.O.B. gang wasn't gonna miss their boy's big day -- Earl Thomas (sweet shirt, bro), Brandon Browner, Byron Maxwell and Kam Chancellor all made the trip ... plus other 'Hawks like Cliff Avril, Ricardo Lockette and Bobby Wagner.

Of course, the spotlight was on Richard and Ashley Moss, who finally took the plunge at an oceanside ceremony ... after years of dating and having 2 kids together.  

The reception went down at Punta Cana's Hard Rock Hotel & Casino -- where Sherman couldn't help but sing along to Ed Sheeran during his 1st dance with Ashley.

Congrats!!

Kyle Richards Hell Yes, Paris Needs a Prenup!!!

3/28/2018 7:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards is relieved Paris Hilton found her $2 million engagement ring -- but she's even more emphatic about her niece protecting her fortune when she walks down the aisle.

We got the 'Real Housewives' star Tuesday night leaving Craig's in WeHo and asked what she thought about Paris almost losing her expensive bling while partying. Kyle says she told Paris about taking care of that hardware -- she offered a permanent solution.

We also asked if Paris should get a prenup with Chris Zylka -- which her dad, Rick Hilton, seemed to advocate this past weekend. Kyle's very blunt here, and all signs point to the happy couple signing before they say 'I do.'

Paris Hilton Reunited with $2M Engagement Ring And It Feels So ... YAAASS!

3/28/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

It's true, Paris Hilton somehow temporarily lost her $2 million engagement ring at a rave -- but that's not the craziest part of this story ... her reaction to finding it was way better.

In case you hadn't heard ... Paris' super expensive, 20-carat bling flew off her finger this weekend while she and her fiance, Chris Zylka, were partying it up at EDM group Above & Beyond's concert in Miami. She says it was so heavy, it slipped right off her hand.

Chris and a mini search party -- including movie and music exec Mike Burns -- had to go searching for the rock, which Chris eventually found in a nearby ice bucket. This video shows what happened immediately after the clutch find ... including Paris' freak-out.

We'll say this ... Paris hooked herself a good one in Chris. She also seems to have some great pals who'll whip out the magnifying glasses at peak whomping hours.

Joanna Krupa Shut Up, You Stupid Haters ... I Didn't Jump the Gun on Engagement

3/27/2018 6:48 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joanna Krupa says all the haters who say she's desperate to remarry again are missing something ... the facts.

We got Joanna Monday night at LAX and after flashing her engagement ring, courtesy of businessman Douglas Nunes, she scoffed at criticism that she's committed to a new marriage before the ink dried on her divorce docs.

Joanna offered a timeline on the breakup of her marriage to Romain Zago, and turns out the relationship ended a long time ago ... longer than people, and especially the haters, think.

Just another weekend in the Krupa-Nunes household ❤️🐶 @nunes451

A post shared by Joanna Krupa (@joannakrupa) on

Back to the ring ... turns out her fiance had some help in picking it out. As for how many carats .... Joanna was mum, but our photog has some experience in the engagement ring department and after eyeballing it he offers an opinion.

George W. Bush Spins Nephew's Bride Right Round ... Like a Record, Baby

3/26/2018 3:22 PM PDT

George W. Bush doesn't spin himself right round when he's getting down on the dance floor, but the ex-President's definitely got moves ... just ask his nephew's new bride.

Dubya attended Pierce Bush and Sarahbeth Melton's wedding this weekend in Colorado Springs, where 43 was seen dancing up a storm at the reception after the couple said 'I do.'

Bush had no shame in his game while busting out some sorta dance -- the short-circuiting Robot Running Man, maybe -- with Sarahbeth to 'You Spin Me Round.' She was definitely spinning, but the ex-Prez stuck to a simple full-body shake. Classic. 

Watch to the end of the clip ... looks like he was attempting to get a Conga line started.

Gotta say, this reminds us a lot of Prince William's '90s moves in Switzerland last year. When the right tune hits ... some guys just can't hide from the beat.

Joanna Krupa Make Mine a Grande Diamond!!! Flashes Engagement Rock

3/26/2018 1:54 PM PDT

Newly engaged Joanna Krupa's coffee runs are a lot sweeter ... thanks to the giant diamond she gets to wrap around her cup now.

Krupa's new engagement ring was on full display as she grabbed Starbucks Monday morning in Tampa. The former 'Real Housewives of Miami' star announced over the weekend she said "yes" to a businessman named Douglas Nunes.

Good news for them, but kind of a shock considering she'd only finalized her divorce from ex-husband Romain Zago less than 8 months ago.

It appears Joanna's rebound theory is ... rock on!

Rick and Kathy Hilton Prenup for Paris???

3/24/2018 6:51 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rick and Kathy Hilton are almost always interesting ... and they did not disappoint Friday night when we asked them about prenups and soon-to-be-married Paris.

We got Paris' mom and dad in Bev Hills at Mr. Chow, and raised the prenup issue with Rick. Our photog didn't ask specifically about Paris ... rather, he asked if Prince Harry should get a prenup and Rick clearly thinks he should. The principle he raises would seem to apply to Paris.

Our photog was more direct with Kathy, who didn't seem to know much about prenuptial agreements. When it registered, she was solidly against it.

Paris is insanely wealthy, and we're guessing daddy's view will prevail.

Odell Beckham Jr. Shoot-Danced Like A Wildman ... at Teammate's Wedding!

3/21/2018 11:56 AM PDT

Odell Beckham Jr. made one hell of an entrance at the Sterling Shepard-Chanel Iman wedding reception, doing what he does best -- DANCING HIS ASS OFF.

OBJ and Shepard's other groomsmen tore through the wedding hall with Rich the Kid's "New Freezer" bumpin' ... and broke out the shoot dance to end all shoot dances -- fist-pumpin' and leg-kickin' with extra sauce for Sterling's big day!!

Giants WR Roger Lewis and Miami WR Kenny Stills (Shep's OU teammate) weren't half bad -- but we gotta give Odell the nod for performance of the night ... only 'cause Eli wasn't around to steal the show.

In the video, the emcee said the party was just getting started ... so we can only imagine how turnt OBJ and co. got by night's end.

Congrats, Sterling and Chanel!
