‘Gossip with Celebitchy’ podcast #143: Harry’s cute reading glasses

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 4:30
We’ll be off for at least two weeks and maybe we’ll be back on January 7th but we’re not sure. Harry’s book Spare comes out January 10th. I’ve been watching Acapulco on Apple plus. Chandra is looking forward to Glass Onion and season three of Emily in Paris. You can listen below!

Royals: Minutes 4:30 to 28:30
We just finished volume two of Harry and Meghan. Volume one was mostly about their love story. We got some sputtering responses from the British press along with the story about how much William hates Meghan for taking Harry away from him. The takeaway from the second half of the series was that the Sussexes were getting briefed against. The royal reporters were previously open about getting briefed from the palaces but are now denying it.

We now know that Harry’s line in the trailer about his brother being willing to lie to protect himself was about William signing Harry’s name to a statement after the Sandringham Summit that William never bullied Harry. Here’s a link to the post we mentioned about that. Harry and Meghan truly wanted to continue to work for the royal family. They would have worked as much as they were able, but they were a threat to other members.

It was hard to hear that Meghan thought people would take her at her word in the Oprah interview when she disclosed that she was suicidal. That was ignored and the headlines instead focused on how Harry and Meghan accused the royal family of being racist. The British press will do the same thing in their reaction to this docuseries. Chandra was surprised that the racism in the press wasn’t called out more. Harry and Meghan also didn’t get into the story about Meghan supposedly making Kate cry and about who the royal racist was. They barely addressed the story of Meghan allegedly bullying staff. We think the Sussexes went easy on the Windsors here.

Chandra appreciated that Meghan’s lawyer disclosed that Jason Knauf helped the Mail on Sunday in Meghan’s lawsuit against them for publishing her father’s letter. Meghan said “that’s your brother” when William texted Harry, but the contents of that text weren’t disclosed. We would have liked to have heard more dirt on Will and Kate.

Tyler Perry really stepped up to help Harry and Meghan when Charles leaked their location in Canada, they were surrounded by paparazzi and Charles pulled their security. We were moved by how Perry described the royal family as batterers and how he recognized the abuse that Meghan was suffering.

Harry said that he had six weeks before the press found out they were in Canada and that they had six weeks at Tyler Perry’s house before the press found out as well. That doesn’t seem to be the case because we found out from Dan Wootton at the Sun on March 27th that the Sussexes were in LA, just two days after we learned that Charles had covid. We think Charles’s office leaked the news that the Sussexes were in LA.

We’re impressed with how well the docuseries lays out everything with the Sussexes. The first half was familiar to us, but there was a lot of new information from the exit on. We remember how we heard that the Sussexes’s security was being pulled and how there was hand-wringing over whether Canada or the US would have to pay for it. There were a lot of tangents the docuseries could have taken. They didn’t even touch William’s affair. We wonder why Finding Freedom wasn’t mentioned at all.

We remember the People cover story that Abigail Spencer said she arranged to help set the record straight about Meghan. The letter Meghan wrote to her father was mentioned in that article and Chandra thinks that was the impetus for him to leak it to the Mail. The docuseries barely touched on all the charity work the Sussexes do. They’re good people who work hard and connect with people. The word is getting out about them to the general public.

Comments of the week: Minutes 28:30 to end
My comments of the week are from Lala11_7 and Mcmmom on Hecate’s post about Jennifer Coolidge saying there’s real power in not giving a f-k as you get older. I talk about having reading glasses all over my house. We think Harry looks cute in his reading glasses.

Chandra’s comment of the week is from Jais on the post about Omid Scobie’s next book, Endgame. Thanks for listening bitches!

    SO cute! My ex resembled Prince Harry and I stayed with him far too long because of that, lol. He was kind of a basic bitch unfortunately 🤷🏻‍♀️

  2. DouchesOfCambridge says:

    I think we should explain what being “briefed against Harry/Meghan” means. the people who don’t follow the Royals have no idea what being briefed against means and nobody is explaining it and being “briefed against” make it sound lightweight and makes harrry and meghan sound thin skinned

    What I find interesting is the pattern of only talking about a thing once. We told the truth about cry-gate. You want the truth, go back and rewatch the Oprah interview. It’s there.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I like that. It’s probably best from a mental health perspective–something I need to keep in mind for my own life!

  4. Donna says:

    They appear to be honest. I’m so glad they are on their own now and living in the US. I’m also glad they have her Mom. My very best to them.

    Watching the docuseries reminded me of how in a family no matter how much you grow and change you are stuck in a role the family is comfortable with. Change is so hard and I suspect Harry is still the little brother trying to take a stand against an older bully/ brother. The space is healthy when family isn’t listening.

    Okay, I’ll admit, Harry in his readers makes me hot for teacher.

    I’ll jump around on a couple of different comments (love listening to the podcasts).

    I’m not in the mindset that Harry was fudging dates or confused with dates. He worded things differently than I would have. It wasn’t a secret they were in Canada or going to Canada in 2019. Pretty sure a statement was put out that they would be going to Canada after November 14, 2019? Their Vancouver Island location/home was revealed (“supposedly” by the Vancouver Sun *cough* Dan Wootton), December 27, 2019. This follows with the timeline of Dan Rotten being leaked to while in NZ for the Sussexes plan?.

    It may(most likely) have been leaked to Wootton that the Sussexes were in LA on March 27, 2020. Or, someone leaked they weren’t on Vancouver Island anymore and LA was the logical destination considering the BM has geography problems, that LA equals the State of California. Cali was in huge lockdown in March 2020. They could have been in the most remote of places secretly and Wootton would have said LA-either a leak or a chalky gambler.

    What Harry said in the docuseries aligns with what the Daily Mail TV put out as an exclusive on May 7, 2020. The day after Archie’s 1st birthday. It wasn’t known for almost 6 weeks that they were living at a home owned by Tyler Perry. In that DMTV exclusive, Jesse Palmer, speculated that Oprah was the go between Perry & the Sussexes. DMTV had graphs arrows like pie charts! What they didn’t know, as revealed in the docuseries, is that Tyler Perry, or I’ll say, Good King Perry, made an open invitation to Meghan, prior to the wedding, that he was someone she could come to if needed. fyi, mentioned it before, I for whatever reasons, never watched the Madea movies before all this. My daughter was like, Mom, watch, you’ll like it. You’re like Madea sometimes. After watching the Madea movies, my daughter gives me too much credit. I’m not that brave-braver than I used to be.

    Abigail Spencer, is the bestest of friends. Notice how the BM really hasn’t hit back at her. She’s all like, this is what happened, this is what we, as Meghan’s friends did, and puhlease, come after me if you choose to. I’m here waiting, like Janina.

    I will disagree that the People magazine was an impetus for Bad Dad releasing/selling the article to MoS/ANL/DM. It was Jason Knauf’s/KP’s/Clarence House knowledge of the letter that sent the Daily Mail’s, Caroline Graham to Bad Dad. Knauf knew of the letter. Let’s be honest, Thomas Markle Sr, did not equate the People magazine article to the letter. It was pointed out to him by the same people who worked hard at stopping the wedding.

    Meghan said, in episodes of the docuseries, that responses supposedly from her Dad. were not actually text messages from the language of her father. The FedEX letter wasn’t his signature. Who the eff was commandeering his life? Thomas Markle is a terrible horrible father. Who else was he being paid by for his treachery to his daughter?

    The Clarkson thing is terrible & awful. No words to actually describe. It has taken attention away from the William bullying statement that Harry DID NOT sign off on. Harry did not sign off on William being a bully.
