‘Gossip with Celebitchy’ podcast #130: the blind item we didn’t report on

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 5:30
We’ll have an episode out next week and will be off on August 20th. I went axe throwing and I hated it! Chandra’s cat was playing with a lizard. You can listen below!

Royals: Minutes 5:30 to 19
We heard that Prince Charles accepted a million pounds from the bin Laden family in 2013. This comes after the news that Charles got 2.5 million pounds in cash in literal suitcases between 2011 to 2015 from a shady Qatari politician. Charles’ excuse was that his charity accepted the money, despite the fact that he met with the bin Laden family and brokered the deal. His justification was that it would be rude to turn down the money. It’s not likely there will be a criminal bribery investigation.

We talk about a blind item story we chose not to cover directly. Instead we linked to coverage from Lainey and Just Jared. The most interesting angle about that was the BI suggested that the prince has moved on from his former mistress to a new girlfriend who is London-based.

William and Kate went to the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham with Princess Charlotte this week. The big news was that Kate wasn’t wearing her engagement ring, although she’s still wearing her wedding ring. We also heard that, like their appearance at Wimbledon, they arrived separately. William and Charlotte took a helicopter there and Kate took the train, where she chatted with a child. It really looks like they’re living apart now.

Kate is also covering People Magazine with a sugary story about how she’s learned so much from Queen Elizabeth and is ready to be queen. It’s all about Kate because covers with William don’t sell.

There’s a new documentary coming to HBO called The Princess, which just is archival footage of Princess Diana. The BBC agreed last week to never again air footage from Princess Diana’s Panorama interview after pressure from Prince William. The Dyson investigation, which found that Diana was tricked by Martin Bashir to give the interview, was completed in May, 2021. The BBC was recently sued by Tiggy Legge-Bourke, a royal nanny whom Diana claimed had an affair with Charles. Prince William mischaracterized that interview after the Dyson investigation. Diana’s biographer, Andrew Morton, gave a recent interview stating that Diana didn’t say anything to Bashir she hadn’t already told her friends. Omid Scobie said the same thing in his column, that William is trying to muzzle his late mother and that the royal family still has the same issues Diana brought up.

Dane Cook: Minutes 19 to 22
Dane Cook is a 50-year-old comic who was in a movie with Jessica Simpson and is known for stealing jokes. He just got engaged to a 23-year-old woman named Kelsi Taylor who he’s been with for five years, so from the minute she was legal. People are really side-eyeing their relationship now that they’re engaged because he mentioned them being “friends first” and meeting her at one of his game nights before she was 18. At least she has a job and friends outside of the relationship. I play a segment from Zoom where we talked about this.

Comments of the Week: Minutes 22 to end
My comment of the week is from TarteAuCitron on the post about Donald Trump burying Ivana on his golf course in New Jersey.

Chandra’s comment of the week is from dina on the post about Kansas voters upholding abortion rights.

Thanks for listening bitches!

    The new girlfriend is London based? That explains moving the family out of London to Windsor then…

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      Yeah – her name etc.. was polished on Twitter before they scrubbed it. Its the Russian business woman that has been mentioned on here several times – the one that he has the super injunction on to stop the press reporting on it.

      • JanetDR says:

        Russian?! Nothing suspicious about that at all! 😂 Another Maria Butina? Whatever happens, I hope we don’t learn about any more of his kink.

      • Both Sides Now says:

        @ JanetDR, yes. Let’s keep his kinks to himself, thank you……the thought of him naked is enough to destroy my appetite.

        As for Cook, no amount of plastic surgery will remove his skeez personality, no amount. Maybe he should find a better one somewhere else. Maybe Craigslist perhaps……

  2. Normades says:

    On an unrelated note, I love hearing your real voices!

  3. Jean says:

    But is it actually true or just speculation

    • Christine says:

      This is where the “never complain, never explain” approach fails them. In this case, I don’t mind, William doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. Brace yourselves, I’m about to stick up for Prince Wills.

      This is a fairly normal kink, humans have realized there are erogenous zones in areas they didn’t think of previously. If he’s into this, more power to him, though maybe marrying someone who is into your kink would have been a better idea.

    My friend is saying that Ivana is haunting the Donald in revenge for burying her near the clubhouse of his NJ golf club. She is tsk tsk tsking after today’s raid at Mar A Lago, saying this is what he deserves, lol.
