Harry and Meghan Markle recently volunteered at Homeboy Industries in LA, a group that supports people moving on after incarceration or gang involvement. While there, Meghan, started speaking in Spanish with someone in the room. According to Father Greg Boyle, the group’s founder, “She spoke Spanish perfectly with one young woman. She just went right into Spanish, which was a revelation — and it was very good.” According to TMZ, Meghan interned at the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she learned Spanish.
In the meantime, As Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s legal battle against the British tabloids continues, we’re hearing more about her side of the situation. In new court docs obtained by Daily Mail, Meghan’s lawyer says she felt “unprotected” by the Royals as she struggled with the press, especially while pregnant with baby Archie. Meghan has also identified the five friends who spoke anonymously to the tabloids without her knowing, although the names in the new docs haven’t been shared. Meghan also challenged the idea that her and Harry’s royal wedding was all publicly funded. Her legal team says that not only was it “personally financed” by Prince Charles, with any public costs going towards “security and crowd control,” but that Britain actually made a profit from the wedding, which apparently made more than $1 billion in tourism revenue.

Months after striking a $600 million deal with Coty and working her way back to the world’s youngest billionaire status again, Kylie Jenner is being dragged to court over the deal. Kylie has been sued by Seed Beauty for allegedly offering Seed’s trade secrets to a competitor. Kylie has been putting out products with Seed since 2016, and they say it’s their secret formula that has shot Kylie into billionaire status. In court docs obtained by TMZ, Seed claims that Kylie’s big deal with their competitor, Coty, puts their trade secrets at risk. Seed claims that Kylie’s company has refused to assure them their secret formula won’t be leaked, particularly to Coty, so, they’re asking a judge to block Kylie and Coty from using their trade secrets.

Covid-19 updates…
D.L. Hughley, who has recovered from COVID-19, ended up giving it to his staff, and he’s pretty sure he knows where he got it in the first place. Though the symptoms kicked his behind at a show in Nashville, D.L. said he was in Dallas for a few days, where COVID precautions were more relaxed, according to TMZ.
Steve Smith, the co-owner of Kid Rock’s Big A** Honky Tonk & Steakhouse in Downtown Nashville, Tennessee, is joining a lawsuit against state and local officials over restrictions that have been set to help slow the spread of COVID19. Nashville is currently in the phase-3 reopening, which allows bars to be open at 50% capacity and 75% in dining areas, live-music, but no dance floors. To us, in the northeast, that may seem pretty lax with COVID-19 spiking in Nashville right now (343 new cases in the past 24-hours alone, according to Dlisted), but they still want to fight the restrictions.
Maybe they’ll listen to Jennifer Aniston. She said, “I understand masks are inconvenient and uncomfortable. But don’t you feel that it’s worse that businesses are shutting down… jobs are being lost… health care workers are hitting absolute exhaustion. And so many lives have been taken by this virus because we aren’t doing enough. I really do believe in the basic goodness of people so I know we can all do this -- BUT still, there are many people in our country refusing to take the necessary steps to flatten the curve, and keep each other safe. People seem worried about their “rights being taken away” by being asked to wear a mask. This simple and effective recommendation is being politicized at the expense of peoples’ lives. And it really shouldn’t be a debate.” Read more with Kaiser.

Kristin Cavallari’s soon-to-be ex, Jay Cutler, has found out who has been murdering his chickens. Was it a big supporter of Kristin? Nope. According to TMZ, it was a raccoon who had been ripping the heads off his chickens and leaving the bodies behind. It sounds like Jay took care of the situation, but he said, "Unfortunately I’m sure this raccoon has some family members." And they’re coming for you, Jay.

Ariana Grande threw a birthday party for herself, but she took precautions. As she’s been telling her fans to practice social distancing, Ariana followed some rules herself. She only had 12 people total, including her mom and brother Frankie, and her boyfriend, Dalton Gomez (who she just went Instagram official with). Most of the people at the party were wearing masks, as you can see in the video at tmz.com.

We’ve got some reboots on the way…

He’ll write, produce and do the voice-overs for both characters. “Beavis and Butt-Head” first aired in 1993, becoming an instant pop culture hit. In a statement, Mike says it “seemed like the time was right to get stupid again.” Read more with MSN.

Kanye West is so proud of Kim Kardashian’s new billionaire status, thanks to her deal with Coty. He’s been bragging on Twitter about it a lot. In the meantime, he also installed an “enchanted forest in Kim’s bathroom,” lots of different plants arranged in the center of the bathroom, and there’s plenty of room for the plants because in the video Kim posted, you can see her bathroom is bigger than all the bedrooms in your house combined. Anyway, back to Kim’s success, a source said, ”[Kim’s] proud of what she’s achieved because it shows her kids that if you put your mind and ability to something, the rewards are endless. To teach that to her kids is the ultimate takeaway from her fortune.” Hopefully, her kids never find out the foundation that success is built on. Let’s hope they never Google the name Ray J.

Here’s what the Jenner girls have been up to lately….
Because of C19, Kendall Jenner did her own photoshoot for Burberry’s TV Summer Monogram campaign. The photos of her are great, however whoever took the photos should have considered the sun and shadows on her face. Regardless, Kendall proved she needs no Photoshop, and something else neat about the photos, they used CGI to make her photos move like ripples in water.
Kylie Jenner is showing off her new tattoo, dedicated to her daughter, Stormi. The ink reads “4:43,” which is the time that Stormi was born on February 1st.

Sia believes fame triggered some bad memories of things from her childhood and caused her to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), calling life in the spotlight "the greatest disappointment," according to AceShowbiz. Even though her music is more recent to us, Sia’s career actually started in the late '90s, she shot to stardom working on collaborations with big songs like "Titanium" with David Guetta, "Diamonds" with Rihanna, and "Wild Ones" with Flo Rida, and then, of course, her own hit "Chandelier." Sia admitted, "I had a lot of suicidal ideation over the last three and a half years. I couldn't get out of bed. I was finally diagnosed with complex PTSD and not a bipolar two." Sia thought becoming famous would right the wrongs in her life, but "As I got progressively, slightly more famous, I realized it wasn't for me at all, and that I had made a huge mistake." Before adopting two 18-year-old boys last year, Sia said she suffered a "nervous breakdown," which drove her to wear a wig covering her face, "so that you know I don't want to be famous, and I sent a clear message, and people have been extremely respectful of that message."

We’ve been telling you that “90210” star Brian Austin Green is enjoying his new single life after his split from “Transformers” star Megan Fox. After being spotted with Courtney Stodden, he was seen on a date with Maxim model Tina Louise… and a day after that, Courtney marked her territory by posting a video with Brian, as they were relaxing in a hot tub together.

Jeff Bezos ended up with a guillotine on his lawn, courtesy of some people protesting in front of his house. It was set up with a sign that read, "Support our poor communities, not our wealthy men." I’m guessing they didn’t order it from Amazon.
