‘Gossip With Celebitchy’ podcast #4: Meghan’s ‘fake’ pregnancy, Celine’s angel lover

The Duchess of Sussex makes her first visit to the National Theatre
This week we discuss the fact that Kensington Palace revealed that trolls are targeting both duchesses, the ridiculous rumors that Duchess Meghan isn’t really pregnant (I mention this story by Kayleigh Donaldson at Pajiba) and the beautiful angel-faced male dancer, Pepe, whom Celine Dion calls her best friend. We also talk about the horrific hate crime against Jussie Smollet, and how hard it can be to cover those kinds of stories. (Thank you Madeline for your nice email, that meant a lot.)

We cover the SAG Awards and our Oscar predictions and we review movies we’ve watched recently, including A Star is Born, which we don’t think is Oscar-worthy, and The Wife, which we both loved and hope Glenn Close finally receives an Oscar for. I also call Roma “interminable.” (If you liked it I get it! It’s just too high brow for me. While I don’t think we have any spoilers for those movies, we do discuss the characters and some scenes in ASIB.)

We also have a special feature with spoiler-free comments from Kristy Puchko at Pajiba about her love for the movie Serenity. I was so happy to talk to her as I’ve read her reviews for years and almost always agree with her. I saw Serenity over the weekend and I absolutely loved it! I got some fellow movie-goers to talk to me about it afterwards and one awesome lady said she was happy to see Matthew McConaughey’s butt.

Our user questions this week are about the celebrity couples we love and would hate to see break up and the celebrity couples we miss covering. We end with our weekly feature, the comment of the week.

We’re on all the major platforms. Please rate, review and subscribe! Call us at 434-218-3219 if you’d like to leave a message or you can text us there or email info-at-celebitchy.com. Thanks everyone for listening! – Katie and Chandra

Ooh here are articles from Kristy at Pajiba about Serenity. She’s seen it three times. Before I saw it, I only read her spoiler-free article. It’s so satisfying and thought-provoking to read all her pieces after having seen this movie. Her enthusiasm for it is so deserved.

    Yay! I’m so excited this comes out on a Monday. Gives me something fun to look forward to for the ride home.

    (and yes, the “Meghan isn’t pregnant” trolls are so bizarre.)

  2. OriginalLala says:

    I learned about the fake pregnancy trolls on GOMI, there is a shockingly vicious thread about Meghan there and it’s actually insane to read what they write about her and their nutso theories. it’s such a level of cray it’s almost (non) fan fiction!

  3. Esmom says:

    Yay, looking forward to listening after a weekend of political podcasts.

    Question. Over the years as a reader, I’ve kinda discerned how you divide up your stories among the writers (Kaiser does Trump, lol and CB seems to get Garner-Affleck, etc). I’m curious if it’s ever hard to decide who gets to cover who/what.

  4. Elena says:

    I was surprised Meghan stepped out in such expensive outfits this week, given the negative press about their spending. It will be interesting to see if she and Kate tone it down in the coming months.

  5. Zapp Brannigan says:

    The fake pregnancy theories are weird, according to some sections of the interwebs Benedict Cumberbatch and wife are onto fake pregnancy number three, because of reasons and diagrams and timelines and bad Photoshop. I don’t get it at all.

    • Becks1 says:

      The theories are so weird and people are so matter of fact about it. I was browsing around on IG yesterday and someone had posted pictures comparing Kate and Meghan while pregnant. I think the point was literally “royal style when pregnant” (the post itself seemed to be meant as a harmless thing) and the first comment on it was just so very matter of fact – “but Kate was pregnant. Meghan is not.” I was like……um okay. SO WEIRD.

  6. Joro says:

    I am loving these podcast. So glad you guys started one.

    Question for the podcast: What’s it like to covering a celebrity scandal? Robsten Cheating , Ben Affleck Babysitter, Jay-z vs Solange, everything Brad and Angie

    What ‘s it like dealing with hardcore fans?
    And how has social media (instagram and twitter) how you write about celebrities.

    • Celebitchy says:

      Joro these are really good questions and hopefully we can get to them! We actually answered more user questions this week but were running so long that I cut them. The answer to the first question is FUN, it is fun.

  7. Pearlime says:

    I didn’t listen to all the podcasts in full because most gossip podcasts are so samey.
    You could sway me by getting Corey on the show. Her articles are usually positively written and easily my favourites! Celebitchy’s voice is pleasant.

  8. Margo Smith says:

    I’ve already commented about this on Instagram,but this episode was FUNNY! I was on the subway listening and just laughing aloud alone!

  9. My3cents says:

    Thanks, this is so great!
    I’m actually in the middle of packing for a move and it was so fun to hear you and pack away…made the time fly. If only you’d have a daylong one…..

  10. BlueSky says:

    Love your podcasts. I have a question about the negative press against Meghan and Harry after their big trip. What does Charles have to gain from this? I thought he liked Meghan and I thought his biggest issue with William and Kate is how little they do. Maybe I missed this analysis in one of your stories but that part has been a head scratcher for me.

    • Becks1 says:

      Oh I can answer this one! Or at least give you the conspiracy theory about it, lol. The theory is that Charles is behind the smear campaign because so many of the stories end with Charles swooping in to save the day. Charles is the hero who stands besides Meghan even though she is a demanding diva who texts at 5 am. Charles is the one who made William invite her to Christmas at Anmer. Charles is the one who made sure they were well behaved on Christmas day. etc.

      I can kind of see it, but kind of don’t. Depends on the specific story.

  11. Meadow says:

    Back when Beyonce was pregnant with Blue Ivy, I remember seeing a ton of rumors that her pregnancy was fake too. That’s such a bizarre thing for a celebrity to make up, I don’t get it.

  12. Snowflake says:

    I just started a new job 30 miles away and I hate driving. Maybe i should listen to this on the way

  13. Angel says:

    Meghan dresses nicely, nice taste. As a hairdresser with curly hair myself I can see why she consistently wears her hair with tendrils on either side of her fair or with a swoop in front of her forehead as in the first picture. The last picture shows her hairline and, since shes pregnant, she probably hasn’t gotten her keratin redone. You can see her natural hair texture. I wonder how the baby’s hair will come out with Meghan’s natural frizzy hair and her husband’s frizzy red hair.
