    Happy New Years!

    • Godiva says:

      Happy new years everybody!!! The Danish Queen Margrethe abdicated tonight! I can’t wait to to see your coverage. Wish I could see Will and Kate’s faces when they learn their Danish pendants, Frederik and Mary will get their thrones in two weeks.

      Wish you all health and prosperity in the new year. Love to all celebitches from Denmark.

      • Sherri says:

        I’m sure Wills will be INCANDESCENT with rage!

      • Libra says:

        If there is a coronation in Denmark will W&K be invited?

      • dynastysurf says:

        There won’t be a coronation – that’s not how Denmark does it. There will be a balcony proclamation and maybe a gala later if we’re lucky but if Charles and Camilla can travel (and there doesn’t seem to be a reason they can’t) I would bet they’re the ones we see for that.

      • Libra says:

        Thank you @dynastysurf.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Godiva, I saw that news, too. I wondered at the time if Queen Margrethe saw what the brf looked like and decided to abdicate while the new King and Queen would be younger. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

  5. Happy New Year everyone. Let’s hope for a better 2024.🍾🥂🎊🎉

    The Jezebel article about Nikki Haley’s self inflicted wound is interesting. To me, what was most interesting about her response was not what she failed to say (slavery!) but what she did say: it’s about our freedom from government. In other words, she echoed the Confederate states and their reason for seceding from the Union upon Lincoln’s election in 1860. And never mind the obvious contradiction in not wanting the government to tell you that you can’t have slaves but wanting government to control women’s bodies. Haley has always been the absolute queen of having it both ways. Or at least, trying to.

    Happy New Year, everyone!

    • StellainNH says:

      I completely agree with you. Including her “outrage” over what Kate Cox battle to get an abortion, she never once said that Kate should have been able to obtain one, she was just outraged over it. Unfortunately the interviewer never followed up with more pointed questions, which pissed me off.

    • Mimi says:

      For me, the kicker was that she said it was about the right to be free from government intrusion (basically what the south said about wanting to be free to own other people) and not the right to be free, period.

    • Blithe says:

      I find it fascinating for multiple reasons. For all her talk of a “Democratic plant”, Haley is — supposedly— running for President of the United States. The ENTIRE United States. Did she not expect to, at some point, speak with a Democrat? Answer questions posed by a Democrat? View Democrats as constituents in meaningful ways? This is a very odd and noxious stance for anyone to take, especially a former governor.

      If she can’t— or won’t— answer a very basic question about an era in US history that continues to reverberate culturally in the state that she’s governed, she is not competent. So I’ll assume that what she’s really running for is to be Trump’s MAGA VP.

      I wonder if at any point— either privately or publicly— Haley will ever acknowledge that without the Civil Rights movement (s) and the work of a lot of Democrats that changed the laws in the mid-1960’s, her family would not have been allowed to immigrate to the US and become accepted as citizens? Rosa Parks sat, so that Martin could march, so that people of color from Asian countries could become citizens. Do Haley and Ramaswamy ever have even a few moments of acknowledgment or self-reflection? Haley’s parents reportedly (Wikipedia) moved to the US when her father took a job as a professor at a HBCU in South Carolina. I can’t wrap my head around the twists it must have taken for Nimrata Nikki (Randhawa) Haley to recreate herself as a MAGA poster child. SMH

    Wishing a very happy 2024 to all at Celebitchy, writers, commenters, et al. Every day I rely on you to lighten the gloom, and make me laugh.

Let’s hope 2024 is a good one for all, with less division and more good will in general.

      Water Lilly,

      After years and years of obsessively reading Celebitchy, I also de-lurked in 2023.

      Thank you Celebitchy team!

      The gossip is juicy; the writing is always spot on. Kaiser’s depth of knowledge from the political, royals, fashion, and beyond is my daily delight. I learn so much from the brilliant commenters as well. CB ever consider offering Celebitchy swag?

      Wish we could ALL hang out IRL. Happy 2024 CELEBITCHES!!🥂🍾

  18. Nanea says:

    Happy New Year to everyone, writers and commentators alike!

    May 2024 be as gossipy and eventful (for royal-watching, among other things) as was this past year. And thank you to all the different voices on Team CB who cover other areas and brought a new range of themes to the site.

    See you next year!

    Oh, and this is not a threat, but the world will be watching. Especially in November, but also the events leading up to it.

  23. StarWonderful says:

    Wishing you all a very Happy New Year and much joy in the coming year! My word for this year is Gratitude. A friend of mine lost her husband to Covid yesterday (the 29th), so it makes me especially grateful for all the blessings my family and I have.

    A very happy New Year to y’all! I have so enjoyed chatting, cackling, sympathizing and generally hanging out with all of you. Thank you for your wonderful company and to Celebitchy for encouraging and maintaining this corner of the Interwebs! (clinks Champagne glasses)

    May you all live in light, love and laughter in the year ahead 🙂

  31. Kingston says:

    Am reading a series of articles featuring H&M and their travails in the brf and saw a description of the UK as “Sewage Isalnd” and I think I shall be adopting that descriptor going forward.

    Happy New Year everyone!
