This is a picture of Melanie Chisholm AKA Sporty Spice, but when I first saw it I thought it was a picture of Kate Middleton AKA Sporty Duchess. I tested my theory by calling my boyfriend into my office, showing him the picture, and asking him who it was. “Oh!” he said, “the girl from ‘Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!” I shook my head and asked him to think more along the lines of British royalty. “Oh, you mean Kate Middleton? I don’t know what she looks like.” Siiiiigh. What do you guys think? Is Melanie looking more and more like a Duchess doppelganger or am I seeing things? [Fame/Flynet]

Is Kate Middleton Having A Baby Girl?

Is it a girl?!

Kate Middleton may have let the sex of her unborn child slip today as she greeted well-wishers in Grimsby, England. As the Telegraph reports, the duchess was chit-chatting with fans when one woman handed her a teddy bear. Kate reportedly replied, “Thank you, I’ll take that for my d…” then stopped herself.

According to Us Weekly, another bystander asked her if she had meant to say “daughter,” to which the royal replied, “We’re not telling.” Not telling or don’t know? Because another bystander heard her say, “No, we don’t know.” The plot thickens…

Either way, this is exciting because we can finally start envisioning how amazing it would be if Kate and Will had a girl. No offense to baby boys, but think of the fashion potential!

In addition to inheriting a great sense of style, Catherine’s baby girl would also inherit the throne. This year, the British parliament moved forward with legislation to end the principle of male primogeniture, so that Kate and William’s first child can inherit the throne regardless of gender. Yes, Kate’s first born might one day become queen. Read more…

An Imagined Conversation Between Baby Kimye And Kate And Wills’ Royal Spawn

On the one side, you’ve got Duchess Catherine and Prince William, actual British royalty who are experiencing the highs and lows of their first pregnancy. On the other: Kimye — aka Kim Kardashian and Kanye West – who are expecting the fruit of their loins around the same time. What would happen if the two unborns were to somehow develop not only sentient thoughts, but also the ability to text in utero? The bloggers at Mom.me imagined what such an exchange might be like. See the start of their conversation after the jump, and the rest at the link! [Mom.me] Keep reading »

  • Apparently, the “Kate Effect” that has consumers scrambling to purchase clothes spotted on Kate Middleton isn’t all it’s cracked up to be: the Duchess’s penchant for wearing past-season items means most of them have already sold out by the time she’s photographed in them. Designer Roland Mouret even went so far as to say his brand would be more likely to get orders on a dress worn by Kim Kardashian than Kate Middleton. Sad, but probably true. Just don’t tell Kim.

Kate Middleton Nurse Jacintha Saldanha: Suicide Note Blames Hospital For Bad Treatment

Kate Middleton

Kate Middleton’s nurse, Jacintha Saldanha, who killed herself after falling for a prank from two Australian radio hosts, left three suicide notes and one of them is highly critical of King Edward VII Hospital and how management treated her after the hoax.

According to the The Daily Beast, one of the letters deals with the logistics of her funeral; the other outlines how Saldanha struggled with falling for the phone call from Mel Greig and Michael Christian who pretended they werePrince Charles and Queen Elizabeth; and the final letter criticizes the hospital for how it treated her and it is said to have left her family members extremely upset. As we reported, Saldanha never told her family about the prank and they didn’t know until after she died because they do not watch television. Read more…

kate middleton

It won’t be official until tomorrow but an examination regarding the death ofKate Middleton’s nurse, Jacintha Saldanha, concluded that she committed suicide by hanging herself.

According to The Daily Beast, Saldanha was found dead two days after two Australian radio hosts called into King Edward VII Hospital in an effort to impersonate Queen Elizabeth and Prince Charles and pull a prank on Kate Middleton who was there suffering from severe morning sickness. Saldanha was the nurse who initially answered the call and transferred it to anothernurse who went on to give away some bland information regarding Kate’s health. Read more…

There are many conversations to be had about the tragic death of Jacintha Saldanha, the King Edward VII nurse who took her own life last week, after she learned the “Queen” and “Prince Charles” that she patched through to Kate Middleton’s private ward were actually Australian radio DJs with the show 2DayFM. The pair, named Michael Christian and Mel Greig, gave an interview on the Australian show, “Today Tonight,” on which they explained that they never expected to make it all the way to Kate’s private nurse, who then told these DJs confidential medical information about the duchess’s condition. (She had been hospitalized with hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute form of morning sickness.) By their own description, the call was intended to be ridiculous: they spoke in posh British accents and barked like there were corgis in the background.  ”The call itself was not malicious,” Christian said. “From start to finish, there was no harm intended.”

“The accents were terrible,” Greig explained. “You know it was designed to be stupid. We were never meant to get that far from the little corgis barking in the background – we obviously wanted it to be a joke.” Added Christian, “I suppose, you know, the joke was always on us, not anyone else. It wasn’t about trying to fool someone. I mean we just assumed that with the voices that we put on, you know, we were going to get told off and that was the gag – on us.”

The pre-recorded segment was first vetted by producers and lawyers before it aired. Although the royal family had not complained about the breach of security, Saldanha apparently could not live with herself. She allegedly took her own life in a London park on Friday morning. She is survived by her husband and two teenaged children; by all accounts, she was an excellent nurse.

We could talk about suicide prevention, warning signs for mental anguish, medical privacy, intrusion into celebs’ personal lives. I’m sure plenty of other conversations are being had on other blogs. But what I want to talk is the cruelty of radio show prank calls. Keep reading »

  • The Australian radio station that aired a prank call to Kate Middleton’s London hospital could face criminal charges. It’s unclear whether the DJs on 2DayFM, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, made the decision to air the call, or the executives above them. This morning, the station announced it would donate $525K to the family of Jacintha Saldanha, the nurse at the hospital who answered the DJs’ call and patched them through to Kate’s nurse. Saldanha later committed suicide. [USA Today, CNN]
