BS SHOW BIZ BUZZ:

★ As of Monday morning, Prince George and Princess Charlotte have a brand new baby brother, which is very exciting news for all those who are royally obsessed or those who just like cute kids. Despite this new addition, Princess Charlotte still makes history by keeping her spot in line for the throne. The Succession to the Crown Act of 2013 ensured that Charlotte wouldn’t have to give up her place in the line of succession. Before 2011, any girl who was in line to the throne would lose her place if a male sibling came after her. At 8 pounds, 7 ounces, the newest boy is reported to be the largest royal baby in over 100 years.

★Two months after suffering a massive “widow-maker” heart attack, Kevin Smith is opening up about his health scare. He reports that the emergency room doctor told him later on that he was “Talking the whole operation”. The doctor said later on: “You’re very chatty. You wanted to know everything. You were singing a song — ‘Degrassi’.” Smith has appeared on several episodes of “Degrassi: The Next Generation” as his trademark “Silent Bob” character. Smith, who has already lost weight since his heart attack, is now embracing a healthier lifestyle. On Monday, he revealed he’s joining DJ Khaled and Oprah Winfrey as the latest celebrity ambassador for Weight Watchers.

★ Macaulay Culkin appeared on Monday’s episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” for a rare interview where he opened up about the success of his “Home Alone” movies and the insane fan response he still gets after starring in the ’90s holiday classics. At that time of year, Culkin says “I definitely don’t [go out]. It’s my season. It’s Macaulay season. I try to go out less and less around that time of year.” He notes that fans always want him to clap his hands to his face and pretend to scream on the street.

★ Tracy Morgan‘s mouth gets him in trouble sometimes. Morgan said on “The View” that he talked so much at dinner with Morgan Freeman that the legendary actor slapped him. When the two Morgans met up for dinner, Tracy Morgan says that he was so excited, that he was “talking a mile a minute,” and 80 year-old Morgan Freeman slapped him across the face to slow him down. Tracy says that “When Morgan Freeman do this to you, that’s love.”

★ Dancing With the Stars pro Kym Johnson has delivered her twins. Kym posted a snap to her Instagram showing husband Robert Herjavec with two bundles of joy in his arms.  The dancer married the Canadian businessman in 2016 after they fell in love while partnering on the ABC reality competition in 2015. The couple welcomed a boy and a girl.

• Madonna – A judge has refused to block the sale of an old jailhouse letter to her from Tupac Shakur. Madonna had filed suit against Darlene Lutz, her old friend and art consultant, saying a release she signed in 2004 means she couldn’t sue over the sale of the letter. It will be auctioned in July.
• Prince – his estate has launched “an immersive annotated discography website”. It features audio previews, photos, videos, quotes and editorial commentary, including dozens of albums, videos and more. Word is that a collectors’ book with unreleased lyrics and photos is on the way as well. https://www.princeestate.com/

The five-time Grammy and 24-time CCMA Award winner will also be accepting ‘The Generation Award’ at the show, for her impact on the country music industry. Taylor Swift is the only previous recipient (2012).

TURNING THE TABLES ON BREAKFAST:
The first record to be made out of cereal officially hit playlists, bowls…and tastebuds this week when Kellogg’s released ‘Hello’ by the Simon Cowell-backed boy band PRETTYMUCH. The tune is available on a vinyl-inspired record that features a core of Chocolate Frosted Flakes, topped with layers of milk and dark chocolate. The discs are pressed in a 3D-printed mold to create playable grooves, and the limited-edition record features a silhouette of Tony the Tiger, to showcase the crunchy, chocolatey goodness that is Chocolate Frosted Flakes. And yes, the cereal record is playable on a regular turntable, and when the kids get sick of the song, they can make themselves sick on sugar by eating the record. Fans who registered with PRETTYMUCH in advance were the first to receive the record. As of Monday, all fans can pick up the Chocolate Frosted Flakes record for free at Kellogg’s NYC café, while supplies last.
(The first record to be made out of cereal? Well, certainly the first on record!)
(I guess you can’t call them a bubble gum act!)
(Should we explain what a record is to these kids, or just let them bounce off the walls?)

WAITING FOR A LIFT:
Have you ever noticed that most elevators have a mirror nearby? You will now. But why are there often mirrors in the vicinity of elevator doors? Because waiting stinks. And people like to have something to do while they wait for the doors to open. Yes, hotel lobbies have been fooling you into patiently waiting for years. The idea first surfaced during the post-World War II boom, when the spread of high-rises led to complaints about elevator delays. The rationale behind the mirrors: give people something to occupy their time, and the wait will feel shorter. With mirrors, people could check their hair or slyly check out the other people with whom they were about to share a ride. And it worked: almost overnight, the complaints ceased.
(Obviously before smartphones were invented.)
(Now we don’t complain until we get IN the elevator and the guy in the corner fires off an SBD…)
(I can think of better ways to kill time than by looking at myself…)

IT’S SO SAD WHEN SOMEONE LOSES THEIR SUN:
Yes, the Sun is the only star in our solar system, but that may not have always been the case. Scientists at UC Berkeley and Harvard University say they’ve found proof that most stars form in pairs or even as triplets. But twin or triplet stars don’t always stay together for their whole existence. In our solar system, this means what some call the twin of the sun, known as ‘Nemesis’, could really have existed. The researchers think if it did exist, Nemesis “escaped” long ago and is somewhere else in the Milky Way.
(I cannot imagine how burnt I would get trying to cut my grass if there were two up there…)
(It would kinda take some of the magic out of an eclipse, wouldn’t it?)
(If we had two, would that mean we’d be wearing ‘sunsglasses’?)
-Curiosity

ROYAL PROTOCOL:
The May 19 nuptials of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will be a lower key affair than those of Will and Kate, but guests at St. George’s Chapel will still be expected to follow church and royal protocol. Here are some guidelines, according to some British etiquette pros:
➠ HEMS AND SHOULDERS: Dresses that are mostly black or mostly white are no-nos. And women’s shoulders should be covered. Hemlines shouldn’t be shorter than the longest finger when arms are held at the side, and no longer than mid-calf. No cleavage. (And this is why they couldn’t invite Fergie!)
➠ HATS: Although royal weddings can seem like a hat free-for-all, bigger isn’t always better. No huge brims. Nothing too high. (It’s not the Kentucky Derby!)
➠ SHOES: Forget open toes and wedges. Slingbacks are also considered too informal. Four-inch heels would be the maximum, and consider that the walk into the church is over cobblestones. Stilettos? Forget about it. (And Crocs without Jibbitz? Just go home.)
➠ HANDBAGS: They should be small. It’s tight seating in St. George’s Chapel, and there is no place to put large bags. Clutches or other handbags that fit easily on laps are good. (There goes your chance to sneak a bottle in!)
➠ OH YEAH…THE MEN: Most will be in morning suits. They have coattails and they often come in grey, navy and black. There’s also a waistcoat, like a vest, and a regular tie.
(So even at this level, the guys can still pull the suit out of the closet 15 minutes before they leave home.)
(Going by this, it appears it will be a Kardashian-free affair?)
(Off with their headdresses!)
