    That’s a nice color on her. It looks a bit more like a darker jewel tone in other pictures I’ve seen, but it’s very good on her.

  2. OhDear says:

    Glad Kate Middleton’s feeling better.

    On another note, does posing for Playboy really help anyone’s career anymore?

    • Amelia says:

      Did it *ever* help? All I know about playboy is that Hugh Hefner still thinks he’s a player and at school there was a gaggle of girls who wanted to be bunnies (for whatever reason).
      Glad to see Kate feeling better, although it’s an odd colour dress (IMO). With a very un-royal slit up the leg :)
      Oh, and ALLEZ WIGGO!!

      • LAK says:

        actually there was a time in the 80s and 90s when being on the cover of playboy was a career booster and quite the catche.

        The list of stars whose careers were made or reinvigorated by a cover range from Dolly Parton through to Charlize Theron. Even Supermodels like Cindy and Elle had their careers boosted.

        Pamela Anderson and Anne Nicole Smith wouldn’t have had any sort of decent career without Playboy.

        Somewhere in the 00s it lost the catche.

    I honestly hope that (assuming the names and numbers anonymous posted are correct) that someone beats the shit out of every single one of the WBC followers and then tell them that it was God’s plan.

    • bettyrose says:

      When the little girl was killed at the Tuscon mass shooting (when congresswoman Giffords was injured), the WBC morons threatened to protest at her funeral, so the Hells Angels came out to prevent them. I guess the WBC ended up not showing.

      • Erinn says:

        Ahaha that’s amazing.

        One of my aunts (we’re in Nova Scotia) lived right beside a Hell’s Angels ‘hang out’ or something. Never had a single problem with them. Of course, neither she nor her husband went looking for a problem with them, but not a single member did anything to make them feel threatened.

    • princesslizabeth says:


      Those WBC creatures are horrible. Truly vile and hateful. Their evil seems to know no bounds.

      May all the victims rest in peace, and may their families somehow find comfort. Comfort won’t be easy to find, though…this whole thing is just tragic beyond words.

      • Lauren says:

        You know how we know the WBC is evil? Because even the Klu Klux Klan can call them out on their horribleness. You know your organization must truly be despicable when the even the KKK thinks you’re all messed in the head.


      • Mich says:

        Actually, while I am loathe to say this because I despise them, the reason the KKK hates Westboro is because Fred Phelps was very active in the civil rights movement in the ’60s. He helped fight Jim Crow laws and often represented African Americans in segregation cases.

        According to Wiki: In the 1980s, Phelps received awards from the Greater Kansas City Chapter of Blacks in Government and the Bonner Springs branch of the NAACP, for his work on behalf of black clients.

      • Malificent says:

        @Mich. While Phelps’s hatred is incomprehensible to me, it’s made even more incomprehensible to me because he put such effort into openly supporting another group of people who ere historically labeled as less than human. How can you just cherry-pick who deserves your love and who deserves your vilification?

        And I’m mortified that he and others like him give my religion such a horrible face. My church’s minister is a woman. Our previous minister was a gay man, and many of our members are from the LGBT community. Of course, I belong to one of those dreaded “liberal” denominations that are destroying Christianity by actually loving their neighbors….

        Unfortunately, kind and welcoming churches don’t make it into the news. So, I’ve lost track of the number of times that I’ve had to explain to people that we don’t all fit the stereotype of judgemental, bible-thumping troglodytes.

    • Amelia says:

      That is truly, truly disgusting, picketing a child’s funeral. Absolutely abhorent.
      What’s their deal, anyway? I’m afraid I’m quite ignorant on the workings of the ‘WBC’. A quick google says they are “an American, Independent Baptist church known for its extreme ideologies, especially those against homosexuality.”

    • Erinn says:

      I get having religious differences, and standing by your beliefs. But when your beliefs involve picketing funerals, there is something wrong. I know if that was my child, and one of them tried to picket the funeral, I’d be being slapped in jail pretty quickly.

      People like WBC members just… shouldn’t exist. They’re the scum of the earth.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      Last night all over ct there were candle light vigils and some guy called in a bomb threat to 2 churchs holding vigils. in Newtown.

      Fire trucks and police cars are all set up to create a huge barrier so that people mourning don’t have to hear or see these… monsters.

      Everyone here is mean and bitchy on occasion, but at least we’re all decent and know when to give people space to say goodbye to their children. *steps off soapbox*

    • lucy2 says:

      There truly are no words to describe how awful WBC is. I pity anyone who lives their life filled with that much hatred.

      At several of their “protests” people have joined together and formed human walls to shield the mourners – if you’re someone of spiritual beliefs, there’s no question who is doing God’s work there, and it ain’t the WBC. No doubt that will happen here, should the WBC be so gross as to attempt to show up.

    • lem says:

      Everyone should google Nathan Phelps and read up on him. He is the son of Fred Phelps, founder of WBC. He’s so inspirational and it’s astonishing that he made it out of that church alive, let alone with the outlook that he has. I try to focus on his good works, rather than the ranting of his lunatic father.

  4. Grifters says:

    She looks thinner than ever, there was no baby bump showing at all, stop lying press. Kate looks totally too thin still, I believe the woman has a eating disorder on top of being pregnant. She looks like she’s playing a vampire in some goth movie, she does not look very good, way too thin. imo

    • Merritt says:

      She has HG. It causes women to lose weight while pregnant.

    • lisa says:

      +10 – Prior to the wedding, she was always very healthy looking – athetic and trim. There’s no question that she’s lost a drastic, unhealthy amount of weight – BEFORE becoming ill — this recent illness just makes it seem worse. An ED is quite possible and explains a lot. Anyone who says she was ALWAYS this thin is blind.

    • aimee says:

      Thanks for pointing that out. It’s one thing to be naturally extremely thin, but quite another to start out healthy, normal and slim and become emaciated and frail as in Kate’s case. I swear, some people on this site are in denial &/or have blinders on where this is concerned. It’s not the most important thing in the world right now, but it’s pretty obvious IMHO.

      Seriously folks, just because the RF didn’t address it in a press release doesn’t mean that Grifter’s comments aren’t bang on. Remember Diana’s ED? The truth finally came out in the Andrew Morton bio.

    • T.C. says:

      I think she has an eating disorder too which was fine until she got pregnant. The morning sickness on top of the ED left her dehydrated and faint.

    • mln76 says:

      All you people pretending you are her OBGYN are despicable. She announced early and had extreme morning sickness. Just STFU.

      • GoodCapon says:

        ^ The Palace and the press are known to exaggerate things. The royal family’s number of engagements, Kate’s work ethic, her contributions to her charities, the fashion industry, to British tourism, you name it.

        I bet you didn’t even think twice about doubting the press report. The Palace and press would continue to put a favorable, sympathetic spin on their articles because they know sheeple like you would fall for it.

      • christinne says:

        mln76….we can talk as much as we want….truth is Kate is anorexic. Period. She wasn’t sickly thin like this before the engagement. She is now. I think she looks unhealthy and has an eating disorder. BTW if you are in denial that is fine, but don’t call despicable anyone…she had severe morning sickness, but she could stand straight on her feet and be dolled up…no way she has HG!

        PS: I am a physician. believe it or not, you bully….

      • get real says:

        min76 you are clearly in denial and probably have an ED yourself. as others have pointed out – it’s painfully obvious that Kate has lost a significant amount of weight and NO, she did not always look like this. get some glasses, a reality check and a therapy session.

      • Original N says:

        @ Christinne – EXACTLY & thank you!

      • ??? says:

        @mln76: I’m quite new to this site, but your comment in particular unleashed my undiluted inner bitch.
        Judging from many of the posts you’ve contributed to other threads, you seem to fit in the “incredibly foolish and gullible celebrity worshipper” category. It’s people like you whom the press (and the media figures who use the press to establish and cement their desired public images) feeds on.
        Interestingly, many of those who comment here, questioning the integrity of Kate and the hype that surrounds her, can actually back up their speculation with information you can easily find plastered all over the Internet.
        You might want to try doing a bit of research before posting next time so you don’t come across as such a dim twit.

  5. cumber says:

    I dont understand why, since she’s (allegedly) pregnant her choice of outfit is become slightly bad.
    however, we must appreciate that in her condition right now, and without william beside her, she’s able to do his duty as a duchess

  6. Annie says:

    I can’t stand “royalty.” I just think they don’t fit in with the world today. Why do people still support the notion that God put them there because they’re better than the rest of the people? I’d believe it back then when Monarchs participated and even died in battle for their people, but these days William is close to losing his license because he doesn’t fly, like ever. What does he do? He shames his ancestors.

    And I know people give crap to Morrissey everytime he rants about them but I applaud that as a Brit he has the balls to stand up and speak his mind because the press is not allowed to ever criticize the “royals.” That is BS. He is not wrong. Supporting a monarchy of useless people is what is wrong.

    • Jules says:

      I could not agree with you more Annie. Talk about the biggest welfare recipients in the world. I am also tired of Middleton’s smug cold smile.

    • Merritt says:

      If Morrissey Wasnt to criticize the institution that is Monarchy, fine.

      That is not what he did however. First he made comments about health, which were medically inaccurate, so he should really stfu about that. There is nothing brave about casting oneself as medical authority and giving blatantly wrong info.

      And then he blames them for the death of the nurse. The royals did not cause her death, and before her death seemed willing to just move past the prank call. It does seem that the hospital did pressure her and that was wrong. And I have said all along, nurses should not have been working the switchboard and the hospital needed better privacy training.

    • Duckie says:

      Except for the massive amount of tourism they bring in? They do nobody any harm, so I don’t really understand people’s problem with them.

      • izzy4ya says:

        People would still be interested in Britain and it’s history if the monarchy ended tomorrow. I could be off, but last I read Paris is the most popular international tourist destination, and when was their last king in power? The last time I went to Versailles I had to wait in several ridiculous lines. If Britons are so worried that their national identity depends so heavily on this one family, they have a huge national identity problem. If anything, the period immediately after the end of the British monarchy would be totally awesome if they open up all those rooms and buildings for tourist instead of charging people 40 pounds to walk through a lobby.

      • Trollydolly says:

        “Good for tourism”…That’s the indoctrination line that is trotted out when anyone calls them parasites. Most popular destinations don’t have a Royal family. If the UK kept the palaces and the bearskins and installed a clockwork dancing Royal family to pop out like in a cuckoo clock there would be as much tourist interest. Google how much they cost the taxpayer – whatever way you look at it, they don’t come cheap.

    • Meerkat says:

      Could not agree more! And now the British press are banging on about Kate having “blue blood”. It’s as though we’re still in the Middle Ages.

  7. Gine says:

    I always forget how tall Kate is. She always has to slouch down to meet people at eye level.

    • M says:

      Shes only 5’8″ but she was wearing 6 inch heels so of course she looks tall. She was about two inches taller than David Beckham who is 6 ft so that puts her right at 5’8″ without the heels. Plus, I dont think she slouches to talk to them (Im 6ft without heels and I never slouch, even when talking to my friend who is 5’1″) I think she just has awful posture.

  8. Seagulls says:

    Her hair color looks really pretty there. I wonder if she changed it or if it’s just the lighting.

    If I believed in a literal hell, I’d say there are some choice spots reserved for those Westboro fools. How is that guaranteed free speech, to destroy a private funeral? Way to go, Supreme Court…

    • Less is More says:

      Yes, her hair looked nice. The bangs cut she got grew out a bit and suits well. She should feel brave and layer it more now.
      The forest green gown fit her beautifully although I would’ve preferred a different colour. Red and burgundy tones suit her very well.
      Her face has changed with the pregnancy. I didn’t see a baby bump. She is still way too thin. I really hope she’s getting enough daily nutrients.

  9. Grifters says:

    Kate did not say one word to honor the poor dead nurse, when part of the reason the nurse is gone is on her shoulders.

    Kate looks anorexic, I think she was probably being treated for anorexia as well as HG. I don’t believe half the crap the press is writing.
    She has NO BABY Bump, not even turned sideways, but the press tells us she does, YES I believe she is pregnant, but this woman is NOT show yet.
    The press is lying so much about what is going on, I don’t believe the British press.

    • Merritt says:

      That is factually inaccurate. Following her death they released a statement saying their were saddened and their thoughts were with her family.

      Also stop with the medically inaccurate info.

      • bluhare says:

        In my opinion, their statement was perfunctory at best.

      • Grifters says:

        IMO Kate and her snippy spoilt Prince have sent several people into job loss, the people who had a newspaper close because they ran her skanky naked photos and IMO These two went ballistic the day that phone call came in and read the riot act to the Hospital to do something about it, JUST READ ALL THE REPORTS of how ANGRY Prince William was BEFORE THE NURSE Killed herself tragically.
        I wish them a happy lovely child, but Kate is nothing but a WAG who laid on her back to get where she is. She has no other accomplishments, I truly find her unattractive. I will never believe the british press hype. She still looks Anorexic and I believe at some point Kate did indeed have a eating disorder.
        Also there is no bump to look at, she’s as slender as ever so the press needs to stop trying to play Emporer’s new clothes with this woman, most can see she is as thin as a rail. She might have a bump AFTER the New Year but there was NOTHING showing at that sporting event. People said she looked skeletal.

    • Erinn says:

      I think that’s somewhat ridiculous. It’s not their fault at all this woman is dead. And I don’t believe it to be the fault of the DJ’s either. I think they made a terrible choice in calling in and doing the prank, but this woman decided to end her life. Nobody else.

      A normal, stable person does not just decide to end their life because of a prank that they didn’t even get reprimanded for. She made a bad decision, and then killed herself. I truly believe this woman was not stable to begin with. Her own family only found out about the prank after she died.

      And I’m saying this as someone who has gone through clinical depression and major depressive episodes; not someone completely ignorant to mental illness.

      A statement was made following the incident. I don’t believe they owe them any more than that. Quite frankly, the woman could have put them in danger by connecting them to a different person, or divulging information about Kate’s medical history.

      • Grifters says:

        Yes the TRURH irks the syncophants,who actually believe that bull put out AFTER the nurse died. Every article said on the day of the phonecall PW was spitting fire practically.

        I read the statements put out by handlers the day that phonecall came and Pr.W. was livid, angry and the press quickly put out a whole different side once the nurse died.

        Everything surrounding this couple is smoke and mirrors, just as the press HAD TO ADMIT KATE WAS STAYING WITH HER PARENTS and PW was spending the night somewhere else with his friends when she got sick, it will all come out in the end.

  10. Angelic 20 says:

    She wears the same type of dresses in different colours, this dress is exactly same to a red gown she worn last year at least from waist above. I am so disappointed by Sarah she is ruining the amazing McQueen brand with her awful designs, he must be crawling in his grave. I mean once upon a time u can tell a dress is McQueen just by looking at it, now McQueen dresses looks like high street dresses and other mediocre designs house. the colour looks nice on her and I agree what baby bump? She looks thinner then she looked the day she left hospital. I think the puffiness in her face on that day was due to all the fluids she had in the hospital, now she is back to her old self again which is not good IMO.

  11. christinne says:

    Ok. Hair and dress horrible IMHO. I understand dressing nice and don’t show too much skin, but the woman is covering her self head to toes, long sleeves….posto boob trauma, anyone? And the hair FIRE whomever did this to you…that’s a style good or a fluffy dog.

    I am so going to get my head pulled for this…:)

    Next the woman didn’t speak when she handed out the awards. Whomever handles her PR image needs to be FIRED! Makes her look like a toy with strings….look as thin as possible, cover up, do your hair, smile, shake a hand, clap your hands….

    Ugh…bad awful…WTH!

  12. agamble9 says:

    I had a lol moment when Lainey called him Princess William.

  13. Hahahahaha says:

    Did yall see Jennifer Aniston her little Bumpie too?*looks closer*

  14. keats says:

    Love this site, and it usually bothers me when people are like ‘stop giving x press,’ but can we please stop giving WBC press? Please?

  15. Mich says:

    Meh. Kate looks good, all things considered, EXCEPT for that #@&%ing HAIR. Have grown to despise that 10kg weave and those curls.

    Re Westboro, Anonymous is my new favorite thing. On top of their hysterical declaration of war yesterday, they took over Shirley Phelps twitter feed this morning. And here I thought the only thing I could give them props for was their ongoing war against CO$.

  16. SnarkySnarkers says:

    Kate still looks a little barfy to me. Poor thing, that is the worst when you feel like hell but have to talk to people and pretend you’re fine. Give her some comfy sweats and some toast STAT!

  17. et says:

    Gosling and Emma Stone look amazing together.

  18. kayla says:

    She looks like she wearing a wig.I think she would look better with hair that does not make her look weighed down maybe chin or shoulder length.I think she has a very pretty and natural looking face and body.Just because she thin doesnt mean a eating disorder.My whole family is on lean side and my sisters(sometimes brothers) and I get comments on our weight all time.I never cared or comment on someone weight because if your healthy and happy who cares!

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      If your whole family is like that then it’s healthy and your body is just defaulted to that state.

      Kate is naturally larger. Not fat, but healthy. Pippa exercises a lot and Carol seems image obsessed like Kate now. Point is kate isn’t naturally this thin. And it’s not hg. She was thin in the nude pics and honeymoon pics. Downright skeletal.

  19. Eleonor says:

    I really like that dress!
    Honestly I think she looks tired.

  20. aud says:

    She looks adorable. I remember having that teensy bump. Now I’m a beach ball lol

    Enjoy it while its small

  21. hh says:

    Alexander McQueen dress – $4,325
    Jimmy Choo Pump – £435
    bet most of you girls look adorable in them

    • Original N says:

      @ hh, Thanks for that! I work, have two children, 3 dogs and sometimes wonder how these women look so glamorous all the time. Then, I realize it is a combination of time (I have very little) and a lot of money. Interestingly, I still find the time to do charity work more than Duchess Dolittle! I’m pretty sure with the amount of time she spends on herself, I could look as put together and nice as she does as well!

  22. gamblea says:

    Does Lainey always call him Princess William?

  23. GoodCapon says:

    The SPOTY may be a bit of a joke award, but it’s still an insult to see athletes at the very top of their respective fields be handed the awards by a woman whose only claim to fame is fking a prince. Princess Anne should have been the more appropriate royal for this event: she’s a sportswoman and was an Olympic athlete. Heck, even Charlene of Monaco is better-equipped for these kinds of events than Waity is.

    It’s nice to see the brave little special snowflake do something while being pregnant though ;) Now, if she could just pay more attention to her charities instead of only showing up for glam events like this one. Or am I asking for the moon on a stick?

  24. Fue McCormick says:

    It’s funny how people practically shit themselves when they talk to her … I wonder what would happen if someone waited hours in line to tell one of the higher ranking royal’s to “f@&K off.” God that would be hysterical.

  25. India says:

    Does anyone think it is humanly possible for her to ever be out in public and not gesticulate with her long prehensile hands and fingers showing off Poor Dead Diana’s Ring? I mean is that too much to ask? No one can ever get beyond The Cousin It Hair, the Prehensile Extremities, her Crotch Shots, and Tit Gate. She is just disgusting and such a major embarrassment. Gross me out.
