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 »
