‘Gossip with Celebitchy’ podcast #152: Kate looks like a Disney villain

Introduction: Minutes 0 to 4:15
Hecate is leaving and we’re sad about that. I watched The Sandman but it was more of a hate watch. Chandra loves Succession but watching it stresses her out. She’s also watching tennis and is sad that Rafa Nadal is retiring. You can listen below!

Royals: The Car Chase: Minutes 4:15 to 15:45
This week Meghan and Harry went to the Ms. Magazine’s Women of Vision Awards, where Meghan was honored. She wore a phenomenal strapless gold textured Johanna Ortiz gown and she looked rich and unbothered. Harry and Meghan looked loved up and gorgeous. They also visited a youth center in Santa Barbara earlier this week for Mental Health Awareness Month.

All of that is lead up to this disturbing story that Harry and Meghan were chased by multiple blacked out SUVs and motorcycles allegedly containing paparazzi when they left the Ms. event. They were pursued for over two hours, from about 10pm to midnight. A paparazzo said that the Sussex’s vehicle was the one doing evasive maneuvers, but it’s clear the paparazzi were driving dangerously and putting pedestrians at risk. Here’s a link to the tweet I mentioned from the President of the NY Press Photographers Association. We wonder why the paparazzi were hounding Harry and Meghan, since there were already photos of them that night and there’s no market for photos of them in a car afterwards. The Page Six report said that there were 12 paparazzi at first. A witness at the scene as they left the venue said it was scary.

It’s upsetting how the press is trying to fact check and minimize what Harry and Meghan went through. A taxi driver who picked up Harry and Meghan at a police station and drove them around the block is being quoted as saying it wasn’t that bad, essentially. He was only with them for ten minutes. NYC Mayor Adams similarly tried to downplay it. The Sussexes’ spokesperson has said she’s never seen them that vulnerable and a member of their security team, a former secret service agent, has said he’d never seen anything like this and that it could have been fatal. Some commenters have suggested that the Sussexes waited to release a statement on the incident so that they could see who would publish the photos. They were briefly published online in The Express and the Mail.

No one from the royal family has reached out to the Sussexes or contacted them to see if they’re OK. The royal family has also refused to comment on this!

The Coronation: Minutes 15:45 to 24:30
The coronation was grim and weird. We were floored by some of the weird artifacts, like the bracelets of sincerity. Here’s a link to that clip and here’s a link to Chandra’s tweet about it. We wonder why Charles was so miserable when this was supposed to be his big day. Camilla was smug and was smirking and William didn’t memorize his lines. I tweeted a video of Charles bitching in the carriage about Will and Kate being late to the coronation. Here’s a link to videos of him getting his little robes pinned on. He also seemed mad at the pages carrying the train of his robe after the coronation.

Will and Kate looked tired and mad like they fought on the way over. Someone told Omid Scobie that it was their children’s fault they were late! That was their excuse to the press. After that they released a shaky behind-the-scenes fan cam video that was just terrible and hard to watch.

Kate wasn’t given a tiara to wear and so she wore a headpiece made by McQueen. She also wore Diana’s famous diamond-and-pearl earrings, but she wore them backwards. Here’s a link to the tweet where I compared Kate to a Disney villain.

The whole coronation was excessive and Charles didn’t even look happy. Plus there wasn’t much interest and no one was talking about it in a few days.

We also heard that Camilla was going to work less as Queen. We think Diana would be living her best life if she was still with us.

Comments of the Week: Minutes 24:30 to end
My comment of the week is from Lucy2 on Peridot’s post about Halle Bailey being so gracious about The Little Mermaid.

Chandra’s comment of the week is from Becks1 on the post about Kate looking overjoyed in an appearance the day after Harry and Meghan were hounded by paparazzi.

Thanks for listening bitches!

    OMG!! The photo comparison. I thought that Cathy’s photo looked eerily familiar.

    • Theresa says:

      I thought so too…was wracking my brain trying to figure it out and there it is plain as day…Maleficent…the comparison is spot on.

      • Mrs.Krabapple says:

        Not that it matters, but I think that’s Snow White’s step-mother, not Maleficent (who is way more fabulous than Kate)

    • Nadia says:

      Down to the scowl on her face!

  2. emberly says:

    Correction. Kate IS a Disney villain.

    • Whyforthelovel says:

      Emberly 100%!!! Kate is the evil villain from all of the movies. At least at the Cononation she was leaning into it. Now if Disney would make an evil villain who is a governor rocking white boots and a smug hateful attitude the villain line-up would be complete.

  3. BeanieBean says:

    I was surprised to learn Hecate is leaving! I’ve always enjoyed her writing. Gonna miss those creepy doll displays at Halloween!

  4. J. Ferber says:

    As always, Kate wants to hog all the attention, like a kid who wants to play all the parts in the show. She wants to be the princess AND the villainess. I wouldn’t hate it if she wanted to be Prince, too, because William is both underwhelming and overbearing in that role.

  5. LeaTheFrench says:

    All the best to Hecate!!

  6. Carmen says:

    Damn, what’s with the stink-eye? Kate is giving some serious Maleficent vibes in that photo. Only Angelina did it better.

  7. Miss Jupitero says:

    We will miss you Hecate!

  8. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    Oh Hecate, I’m going to miss your writing on here so much. Wishing you all the best.

  9. Serenity says:

    Aw, best wishes for you, Hecate! You’ll be missed. 😔
