We all have fears, but this man had the nightmare surprise of his life

Fear is a natural feeling that we have all experienced at some point in our life. Different people are afraid of different things. While some fear getting into contact with spiders or other insects, others fear of height, closed spaces, and a lot more.

But what one man stumbled upon when he entered his home one day, left him completely shocked and running for his life.

Once he got the door open, he came across two huge snaked lowering themselves from the ceiling in the living room.

Describing the shocking moment that made his blood run cold, the man named Mr Hyatt said, “As I walked to the back through the hallway, just right in front of me were these two huge snakes, intertwined and wiggling their heads around looking at me.

“I was a bit in shock.”

Luckily, he managed to swat one of the reptiles away with a broom and guide it out of the front door.

He then took to Facebook to share his story with his friends.

“Yes, this what I came home to today.

“I got one out (after some violent hand to hand combat,) but the other is lost in the house somewhere.

“Anyone want to come for a sleep over at my place tonight?”

How would you react if you found yourself in such a chilling situation? Would you feel safe living in that house ever again?

People called the poor dog ‘werewolf’ because they simply didn’t know what kind of animal he was

A strange animal resembling a ‘werewolf’ stood by the side of the road around an orchard in Madera Ranchos, California. With a mangy patch of fur, skinny and balding, he made everyone fearful to even look at him.

Months passed by and no one wanted to approach the poor animal whose skin was hard and scaly and whose tail was pointy and broken. The only black fur left was that on his neck and head.

Everyone believed he was dangerous and it was obvious he was sick, so people would turn a blind eye when passing by him.

Luckily, one day, an angel in the form of a human decided this dog was worth her time. The woman stopped to check on the poor canine and decided to call for help. Then, another kind-hearted woman named Megan Bowe answered the call. Megan, who is the founder of Bowe’s Adoptable Rescued Pup, told The Dodo, “I was about ready to cry when I saw how bad off he was.

“He was really on his last leg. He was depressed and could barely even stand up.”

Megan soon realized what this ‘werewolf’ was in fact a very sick and neglected German shepherd mix. She named him King and immediately took him to a vet’s clinic.

Facebook/ Bowe’s Adoptable Rescued Pups

The number of diseases King suffered from were plenty, but Meghan and the doctors decided to treat them each at the time. His most serious conditions were his scabies, the broken pelvis and the broken tail which needed to be treated surgically.

“My vet thinks he got hit by a car, and that would explain how his tail was so messed up, too,” Megan said. “That injury happened months ago, because by the time I got him it had already started to heal incorrectly. And with such a damaged pelvis, he wasn’t able to get around very far on his own to look for food so he was extremely skinny and dehydrated.”

Facebook/ Bowe’s Adoptable Rescued Pups

King’s health condition made him look old, but in fact, he was only a year of age. Because of his diseases, some of which were contagious, Megan needed to place him at a separate section of the place where she kept the rest of the animals she took care of.

Luckily, King started eating and he was getting a bigger portion every day.

As his condition gradually got better, King was ready to undergo the much needed surgery for his broken pelvis and tail.

And the operations were successful!

Facebook/ Bowe’s Adoptable Rescued Pups

It took him some time to be able to walk again, but with the help of Megan and the vets, he achieved the impossible and stood on his feet again.

Megan hopes that King would soon be able to be put up for adoption. All she hopes for is that a loving family would embrace him and give him a loving home.

“It’s hard to think that all those cars passed him by and never stopped. No one wanted to bring him home or help him because he looked so bad… But all it took was one person,” Megan said.

It is because of people like the woman who called for help, and Megan, who was ready to step in, that this world becomes a much better place.

Kirstie Alley loses battle to cancer at 71 – family shares insight into the actress’s last hours alive

Hollywood is mourning the loss of actress Kirstie Alley who passed away after battling cancer. She was diagnosed with the disease just recently, according to her children who shared the devastating news on the social media.

Alley was a two times Emmy winner.

She was born on January 12, 1951, in Wichita, Kansas where she attended high-school and graduated from university.

However, Kansas wasn’t the place where she wanted to be and she only realized that after she got involved with drugs.

Speaking of those times, the late actress revealed to Parade, “The truth of how I escaped Kansas is being high. I was drugged out of my mind … I got in the car, and I left to go to California.”

“If I hadn’t been drugged out, I would never have been able to realize my dream. It sounds so stupid but to extricate myself from Wichita, Kansas really took some doing.”

“With reality shows and things like that on TV now, people probably feel a little more hopeful that they could make something of themselves. But at that time, 30 years ago, it was just like, ‘How could I possibly dare to think that I could go be a star? How could I possibly think that?’ That’s more of a Midwest thing, you’re sort of humbled, and if you’re not humbled people will humble you, like, “Well, who the hell do you think you are to move to California and be a star? I mean, come on, Kirstie,” she added.

As she continued doing drugs, a tragedy in which her mother lost her life because of a drunk driver was an eye opener for Alley that she needed to change her life. It was then that she underwent rehabilitation and joined the controversial church of Scientology.

It was in 1982 that Alley landed her first roles, but her big breakthrough came with the role of Rebecca Howe in the sitcom Cheers for which she earned a Golden Globe and an Emmy Award.

Alley went on to stare in other big productions such as David’s Mother, which brought her another Emmy, Veronica’s Closet, Look Who’s Talking movies and Drop Dead Gorgeous, among the rest.

She was also part of Dancing with the Stars and starred in Fat Actress.

The truth is that Alley struggled with her weight which she gained after she was diagnosed with Lyme disease.

Her weight loss journey, which wasn’t an easy one, served as inspiration to many.

“If I made cookies, I wouldn’t eat two cookies. I would eat 12 cookies! And I really went off the rails … I started drinking 12 grape sodas a day. I was consuming massive amounts of sugar!” she explained.

But she did manage to lose a significant amount of weight thanks to the weight-loss program Jenny Craig. When she became part of the dancing competition, many claimed Alley starved herself, which, according to the actress, wasn’t the case.

Alley was married twice. She and her second husband, actor Parker Stevenson, adopted two children together, son William and daughter Lillie. The couple divorced in 1997.

It was Alley’s children who announced the actress’ passing. They shared that their mother died of cancer she was diagnosed with just recently.

“To all our friends, far and wide around the world…We are sad to inform you that our incredible, fierce and loving mother has passed away after a battle with cancer, only recently discovered. She was surrounded by her closest family and fought with great strength, leaving us with a certainty of her never-ending joy of living and whatever adventures lie ahead,” the statement read.

“As iconic as she was on screen, she was an even more amazing mother and grandmother.We are grateful to the incredible team of doctors and nurses at the Moffitt Cancer Center for their care. Our mother’s zest and passion for life, her children, grandchildren and her many animals, not to mention her eternal joy of creating, were unparalleled and leave us inspired to live life to the fullest just as she did. We thank you for your love and prayers and ask that you respect our privacy at this difficult time. With love always, True and Lillie Parker.”

In the last years of her life Alley didn’t leave her home in Clearwater, Florida.

“She’s done with LA.,” a source told OK Magazine. “She’s happily disappeared into a quiet life in Clearwater, where she can also be more open about her beliefs.”

Another person close to the late actress added, “Kirstie hasn’t worked in over a year, and she’s fine with that,” an insider previously said. “She has no plans on returning to Hollywood.”

Her ex-husband, Parker Stevenson, posted a touching tribute to Alley on Instagram.

“Dear Kirstie, I am so grateful for our years together and for the two incredibly beautiful children and now grandchildren that we have,” he wrote alongside a photo of Alley. “You will be missed. With love, Parker.”

Many of her colleagues and friends paid their tribute. Among the first who posted a touching message of condolences was actor John Travolta. “I love you, Kirstie,” he wrote on Instagram. “I know we will see each other again.” 

Rest in peace, Kirstie Alley.

‘Sorry for Your Loss,’ Arnold Schwarzenegger: The Entire World Mourns

Besides being one of the most famous and most renowned actors and a former governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger has also built an impressive career in bodybuilding and is considered one of the pioneers in the field.

Born on July 30, 1947, near the city of Graz, Austria, Arnold was aware of his looks ever since he was a teenager and that is why he wanted to try himself in the world of bodybuilding in the first place. This decision turned out to be the best he could ever make, because this sport brought him places and helped him with his career a great deal.

Arnold was named Mr. Universe five times, and Mr. Olympia seven times. Despite these titles, his physique, along with his acting talent, helped him land one of the most famous roles in the history of film, that of Terminator. 

But Arnold wasn’t alone in his journey of promoting bodybuilding as a spectator sport in the United States. His friend on many years, Jim Lorimer, shared Arnold’s dream and the two achieved incredible things together. Among the rest, they co-founded the renowned bodybuilding tournament known as the Arnold Classic.

Sadly, Lorimer, who was also an FBI agent, mayor, and national track coach, passed away November 24th, 2022. He was 96.

Arnold lost a long-time friend and shared his condolences on Instagram where he wrote, “I am devastated that I won’t be able to sit with him again and hear his wisdom, or analyze bodybuilders with him, or simply laugh and laugh.”

Many others commented on Arnold’s post. Among them famous names in the world of bodybuilding.

“Tragic news. RIP I’m very glad I met him at the competition. Jim, rest in peace,” Jay Cutler wrote.

“That tribute is felt all the way through the heart and soul, all the way to the bones. Such a powerful statement that is also very true. Our hearts go out to his family and friends. Jim, rest in peace…” someone else added.

“Life is a fantastic journey!  It goes by quickly! Let us cherish and thrill our loved ones right now,” and “I’m sorry for your loss…” were some of the rest of the comments.

We are as well saddened for Lorimer’s passing.

The world of bodybuilding has lost a legend. May he rest in peace.

Jamie Lee Curtis wrote, “She was a great comic foil in @tvscreamqueens and a beautiful mama bear in her very real life. She helped me buy onesies for my family that year for Christmas. We agreed to disagree about some things but had a mutual respect and connection. Sad news.”

“I was on a plane today and did something I rarely do. I watched an old episode of ‘Cheers,’” Alley’s “Cheers” co-star Ted Danson, who happened to watched an episode of the series before he learned of her dead, told Deadline. “It was the episode where Tom Berenger proposes to Kirstie, who keeps saying no, even though she desperately wants to say yes. Kirstie was truly brilliant in it. Her ability to play a woman on the verge of a nervous breakdown was both moving and hysterically funny.”

Beware of these toys, they are extremely dangerous to children

A mom named Eden Strong is sharing her son’s story in an attempt to help other parents avoid the ordeal she and her little one were forced to go through because of something as apparently as harmless as a bath toy.

Being a freelance writer, Strong has stumbled upon stories which warn of the dangers of the bacteria rubber toys collect inside of them because of the water they get filled in with while little ones are having a bath. That is why she made sure she cleaned them with bleach each time her 2-year-old boy Baylor plays with them in the bath tub.

Little did she know, however, that it wasn’t enough.

One day, the nanny told her how “Baylor squirted himself in the eye with a tub toy,” but Strong didn’t think it was a big deal until she noticed her son’s eye got red some time later.

As the redness spread, she and her husband rushed Baylor to the ER where he was given eye drops and instructed to go home.

That night, Strong decided to check on Baylor and give him a booster dose just to make sure the redness doesn’t progress. Sadly, when she entered his room, she spotted that his eye swelled even more and even his cheek turned pale red.

She took Baylor to the doctor’s once again and after running some tests, they determined the boy had contracted cellulitis, a common but potentially serious bacterial skin infection that causes swollen, red, and painful skin that may even feel warm to the touch, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Baylor was prescribed antibiotics and was sent home. He was then put to bed and when Strong went to check on him, she experienced yet another shocking surprise. “His iris was obscured by his bigger eye, and the white portion of it protruded from between his eyelids. He felt warm to the touch, and a fast temperature check confirmed a high fever,” she shared with CafeMom.

“I cried the entire way to a bigger hospital, praying that he wouldn’t lose his sight,” she explained in her post.

Having two older children who both have experienced health issues, her older son having epilepsy and her daughter being diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a genetic disorder that causes connective tissue damage in the body, Strong knew how to ‘fight’ for a better treatment.

Writing to CafeMom, she explained that she is “sadly used to dealing with medical concerns on a regular basis, and I believe it empowered me to fight for my child.  It’s terrifying to think of what may have happened to Baylor if I had given up on lobbying for treatment and chosen to give the eyedrops a few days to work.”

Baylor was prescribed more antibiotics, and the weeks that followed were a real struggle as doctors believed the boy would lose the sight on the affected eye. “It was like his entire future flashed before me, and everything looked different from what I had envisioned,” Strong said.

Luckily, as the swelling and the redness started fading away, it was determined that Baylor’s vision was unaffected.

Now, Strong is making sure other parents learn of the dangers of bath toys, such as rubber ducks.

“‘How about tub toys?’  THROW THEM AWAY,” she said in her Facebook post. “To put it simply, you cannot clean them. I don’t have any photos of moldy tub toys to show you because there was never any visible mold to photograph. Even though I’d known since sixth grade science class that bacteria can’t be seen, I still thought I was better than dirty tub toys. I made a mistake.”

The post has been shared thousands of times and Strong says that most of the comments are positive and support her opinion about bath toys.

“OMG,” one person wrote, “I had no idea.”

“I am happy that he is doing well; his eyes are so beautiful,” another added.

A third one commented, “How terrifying. I was aware that they had accumulated black mold because I had seen it on my own children’s toys, but I was ignorant that bleach would not address the problem. My kids squirted the item at themselves and each other, so I’m not sure how they avoided the same fate.”

Some even suggested buying those types of toys but glue the opening through which water gets inside before giving them to their children.

Strong is glad she wasn’t dubbed an alarmist for speaking of the dangers and suggesting getting rid of bath toys that fill in with water.

“I was scared that people would reject me as an alarmist, but after reading thousands of comments from parents whose children experienced something similar, I am now delighted to be the one sounding the alarm,” she says.

Further, Strong updated her friends on Baylor’s health condition and said that he recovered.

“He did spend quite a deal of time smiling his way through everything, even though I chose some of the more distressing photographs of him for my post,” she continued.

We are so glad Baylor managed to recovered and we are thankful to his mom for sharing this story.

Make sure you do the same.

FedEx driver is arrested in the abduction of a 7-year-old girl who went missing outside her home this week, police say 

Athena Strand, the 7-year-old girl who had disappeared from the driveway of her Texas home and was reported missing earlier this week was found dead.

Her lifeless body was recovered Friday evening, according to police representatives.

Wise County Sheriff Lane Akin said at a news conference, “It hurts our hearts to know that child died. It’s one of the toughest investigations that I’ve been involved in because it’s a child. And anytime there’s a child that dies, it just hits you in your heart.”

The search for Athena was an excessive one. Sadly, it ended tragically and officials believe the girl was killed within an hour of her kidnapping.

The person charged for this monstrous case is 31-year-old Tanner Lynn Horner, driver working for FedEx. At the moment, he is being held in Wise County jail on capital murder and aggravated kidnapping charges. The bond has been set at $1.5 million.

Allegedly, it was an anonymous tip which led authorities to Horner, who is believed to have been delivering some goods to the Strands when he spotted the girl.

Maitlyn Presley Gandy, Athena’s devastated mother, wrote in a Facebook post that her girl was taken from her family by “a sick, cruel monster for absolutely no reason.”

Further, this heartbroken mom wrote, “I cannot describe the pain and absolute anger I feel. Missing her doesn’t cover how I feel,” along with a video of Athena when she was 3. “I want the world to know my baby, my first baby, my first true love, the reason I breathe.”

“Athena is innocent, beautiful, kind, intelligent, and just the brightest, happiest soul you could ever meet. I don’t want her to be the girl known as the one murdered and discarded by a monster,” she added. “I want everyone to know, every single person in this world, that this is my baby and my baby was taken from me. I want everyone to know her face and her voice and just how wonderful of a person she is.”

Authorities revealed that the girl’s body has been transferred to the medical examiner’s office as the case of her death remains under investigation. Further, it has been revealed that Horner didn’t know Athena or her family at the time he abducted her and later killed her.

Gandy expressed her gratitude to everyone who was involved in the search of her daughter, who she said dreamed of becoming a Viking princess with tattoos, just like those of her dad, and loved wearing pink.

“As a mother, I know no one is as broken as I am…

“It takes a special kind of person and whether a child is yours or not, working crime scenes involving children are hard,” she added. “Thank you for finding my baby. I know everyone wishes this would have ended differently.”

FedEx, the company Horner worked for, issued a statement regarding the tragedy. “Words cannot describe our shock and sorrow at the reports surrounding this tragic event. First and foremost, our thoughts are with the family during this most difficult time, and we continue to cooperate fully with the investigating authorities,” and directed further questions to law enforcement.

Rest in peace little girl, you will never be forgotten.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Athena’s family during these difficult times of grief and sorrow.

Donald Trump called the media 20 minutes after Barron Trump was born

Despite being the son of one of the most famous business moguls in the United States, Baron Trump has spent most of his life out of the spotlight, just as his mother Melania Trump has wished.

However, as much as she tends to keep Baron out of the public eye, the truth is that the media and the wide public are interested in his private life.

Barron was born in 2006, the same year when Donald and Melania tied the knot. He grew up in the Trump Tower in Manhattan, where he is reported to have an entire floor for himself. Although he has lived surrounded by luxury, he never had a traditional nanny while growing up. Instead, Melania took all the care of him, and that included preparing him breakfast and lunch every day.

Youtube/extratv

In the past, she spoke of him as a very creative child. In a 2015 People interview, she said: “Barron is 9 years old. He needs somebody as a parent there, so I am with him all the time as you know my husband is traveling all the time.”

“We keep it down to a minimum,” Trump added. “If you have too much help, you don’t get to know your children.”

They let his creativity grow and never limit him when it comes to his interests. Speaking to Parenting, as quoted by Metro, Melania said: “In his space, the décor style of the rest of our home is mixed with what he is into: planes and helicopters.

“We let him be creative; let his imagination fly and do whatever he wants. Whatever he wants to do with his own room later on, he can do it. Whatever he wants to do with his own room he can do it. He draws on the walls, we can paint it over.

“When he was smaller, he started drawing on the walls,” she added. “His imagination is growing and important. He draws on the walls in his playroom, we can paint it over. One day he was playing bakery and he wrote ‘Barron’s Bakery’ on the wall with crayons. He is very creative, if you say to a child ‘no, no, no,’ where does the creativity go?”

As we all know, Melania is of Slovenian descent so it doesn’t come as a surprise that Barron speaks fluent Slovenian. When he calls his maternal grandma, the two always speak in Slovenian.

Currently, Barron is in his second year at the prestigious Oxbridge Academy.

Back in the day when Barron was born, Donald Trump did something unconventional. Just 20 minutes into the world, the former president alerted the media that he became a father for the fifth time.

As reported by several newspapers, he called MSNBC’s long-running radio show “Imus in the Morning,” hosted by Don Imus, to reveal the great news.

“Everyone’s perfect,” Donald Trump, who was 59 at the time, told Imus.

“I continue to stay young, right? I produce children, I stay young,” while Melania’s website posted that the baby weighted in at 8 1/2 pounds and was 21 inches long.

Girl abandoned at birth for her looks wants to prove the world wrong – she now models for Vogue

Albinism is a rare inherited life-long condition that occurs worldwide across all races and ethnic backgrounds. It results in decreased production of a pigment called melanin in the skin, hair, and eyes, resulting in light color or no color. Sadly, people with the condition are often seen as different and are stigmatized, especially in underdeveloped countries.

A girl with albinism was born in China some 16 years ago, and when her parents saw her snow white skin, they decided not to take her home. Sadly, the little one ended at an orphanage just days after she was born. This sounded horrible, and the staff at the orphanage, who named her Xueli, which stands for snow white and beautiful, felt sorry for her. However, little did they know that she would be adopted by a loving family from the Netherlands who would provide her with a beautiful life.

When she turned 11, Xueli was discovered by a famous Hong Kong photographer who asked her to be part of her campaign featuring different people, all beautiful in their own way.

“She called the campaign ‘perfect imperfections’ and asked if I wanted to join her fashion show in Hong Kong,” Xueli Abbing said in an interview with the BBC. “That was an amazing experience.”

In some parts of the world, it is believed that the bones of those with albinism have medical powers so it happens for some of these people to be disfigured and their fingers, arms, or legs to be cut off.

Knowing this, Xueli says she’s lucky she was only abandoned.

Once the photos of her were posted on the social media, a photographer from London took Xueli under her wing and helped her get on the cover of Vogue Italia magazine for its June 2019 issue.

“At the time, I didn’t know what an important magazine it was and it took me a while to realize why people got so excited about it,” this beauty recalled.

“There are still models who are like eight foot two and skinny but now people with disabilities or differences are featured more in the media and this is great – but it should be normal,” she said in the interview.

“Maybe because I cannot see everything properly I focus more on people’s voices and what they have to say,” she said in an interview. “So their inner beauty is more important to me.”

Xueli is doing all in her power to help raise awareness about the people with albinism.

“I want to use modeling to talk about albinism and say it’s a genetic disorder, it’s not a curse,” she says. “The way to talk about it is to say ‘a person with albinism’ because being ‘an albino’ sounds as if it defines who you are.

“I’m not going to accept that children are being murdered because of their albinism. I want to change the world,” she added.

We are so glad there are people as this 16-year-old beauty out there who teach us that it is the differences that make this world a beautifully colorful place.

He was in the car with his wife and two kids, but he went out to shovel snow off the front of the car when tragedy took place

Sashalynn Rosa, a 23-year-old mom of Passaic, New Jersey, and her one year old son died in a tragic incident of carbon monoxide poisoning after snow blocked the tailpipe of their car as they searched for a parking place. 

As severe winter and blizzards hit the east coast several years ago, Sashalynn and her family were on their way home when her husband, Felix Bonilla, left the engine of the car running as he went to grab a shovel in order to get rid of the snow at the parking place.

According to officials, Felix opened the car’s door around 11 minutes later, but Rosa was already dead, as well as little Messiah, while the 3-year-old daughter was rushed to the hospital in a critical condition.

“It’s hard to lose them like that,” Felix Bonilla Sr, the baby’s grandfather, told ABC news. “The doctors say they don’t think she’s going to make it. Doctor says she has a slight chance to make it.”

If a tailpipe is blocked, just in this case, carbon monoxide, which is a lethal colorless, odorless gas, seeps into the car and replaces oxygen in the body’s vital red blood cells when breathed in.

“They were staying warm while the father was shoveling the vehicle out,” Detective Andy White said. “It’s a tragic incident,” he added.

Neighbour Isabel Carmona spoke to Chanel 7 about the tragic incident, saying, “I know that the boy don’t have life because he’s like this and I try and try, and my nephew tried, and premedical tried, those people worked so hard.

“I tried to help the girl and I put my mouth on the girl’s and paramedics worked so hard to save that kid.”

Unfortunately, tragedies of this type are more common that we even assume.

Baltimore Mayo Clinic came up with possible preventive measures of carbon monoxide poisoning. They believe that sleeping areas should have carbon monoxide detectors and the batteries should be changed twice a year. They also advise people to always leave their garage door open when staring their car and never leave it running.

Keep all engines and equipment that burn gasoline thoroughly ventilated and never operate a generator in the basement or garage or use gas stoves or ovens to heat your house.

We are so very sorry for this family’s tragic loss. May they rest in peace.

Henry Winkler is still madly in love with his wife who had cancer twice – they celebrate 44 years together

The name Henry Winkler is somehow best associated with the character of Arthur “Fonzie” Fonzarelli from the hit series Happy Days. Fonzie quickly became the icon and the epitome of cool during the 1970’s.

Winkler was born on October 30, 1945, in New York City. Speaking of his career as an actor, and later producer, director and writer, Winkler said he always knew acting was his calling. “I knew that I wanted to act since I was old enough to reason,” he told NPR in 2019. “I never had a Plan B. I never deviated. I never thought that there was anything else that I could possibly do in this world except to try and be a working actor.”

During his childhood, he struggled with school and academics and that led to a strained relationship with his parents. At the time, Winkler had dyslexia, but he wasn’t diagnosed with it until later.

Despite the condition, young Winkler attended university and earned a Bachelor’s degree from Emerson College in 1967 and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Yale School of Drama in 1970.

After taking part in a short-lived Broadway production in 1972, Winkler turned to commercials and became a famous face. “I got great at getting commercials and I didn’t have to do another job to make ends meet. I made my living and I could do plays for free at the Manhattan Theatre Club at night.”

When he appeared on Happy Days, millions of fans fell for his charm and manly appearance, and his motorcycle and leather jacket became sort of trademarks of the series. Although the role marked his acting career, he admitted once that it took him around eight years to get a good acting role after Fonz.

After the series was over, the Prime Time Emmy Award winner switched focus from acting to producing and directing. His production company produced many shows, including MacGyver, So Weird, and Mr. Sunshine. He starred in the movies like Scream and The Waterboy and on shows such as The Practice and Arrested Development.

In 2018, Winkler took the role of the acting teacher Gene Cousineau in the comedy/drama series Barry where he plays alongside Bill Hader. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the shooting of the series has been delayed. “We were reading the scripts for Barry. On March 13, they said, ‘Go home and don’t come back,’” he told Entertainment Tonight. “Then we heard July, then we heard September, now January…Praying we go back to work in January. I’ve been sitting here waiting to be Gene Cousineau since December of 2018.”

Since the early 2000’s, Winkler published around 30 books.

“The first time I was asked to write the books I didn’t even entertain the idea. I said to Alan Berger [Winkler’s agent at CAA] who made the suggestion to me there’s no way I could never write a book,” he told the Hollywood Reporter in 2011.

Winkler and wife Stacey Furstman Weitzman have been married since 1978.

The couple first met when he entered a clothing shop where she worked looking for a coat. Stacey helped him choose and he returned a week later and asked her on a date that she almost declined.

Speaking of their first encounter, Winkler recalled, “She was wearing purple parachute pants, and she had red hair, and without her even saying a word, I thought, ‘Woah, beautiful woman standing in front of me’. I came back to the store the next week, and she was there. And within 10 minutes, I learned how strong she is.”

Soon after they started dating, Stacey and her then 4-year-old son moved in with Winkler and the couple was starting to learn how to handle Winkler’s growing popularity.

”People would rush up to Henry and literally walk over my feet. One time I said, ‘You’ve just completely ruined my stockings.’ And this woman said, ‘But I love Fonzie!’” Stacey once shared with People.

The two welcomed a daughter and a son together, Zoey and Max.

Max followed into his dad’s footsteps and is working in Hollywood as a writer, producer, and director on popular productions such as New Girl and Crazy Ex Girlfriend.

Stacey is a two time cancer survivor. She was first diagnosed with breast cancer during the ’90s, and then again in 2007 when she underwent double mastectomy and is cancer free ever since.

In support of his wife, Winkler has gotten involved in a number of organizations which help raise breast cancer awareness. Among the rest, he was a guest speaker at the 13th annual “In The Pink of Health” Luncheon, an event that is one of many run by the organization to raise money for breast cancer patients and their families. 

What we love about Winkler is that he’s never afraid to express his love for his wife of many years publicly. When James Corden surprised them with a photo of their wedding day on his show, Winkler said Stacey has been as beautiful as the first day he laid eyes on her.

”It does take work. There are glitches in the road, and you get a little off kilter, but if you have the ability and the stick-to-itiveness based on love, then your friendship and your relationship only gets better,” Stacey once explained to People when speaking of the couple’s long lasting marriage.

Proud dad makes many angry after posting photos of his 14-year-old at work

Chris Crawford is a father of a 14-year-old son. Recently, the boy started working at Burger King and Chris couldn’t be prouder so he decided to post on Facebook, writing, “HUGE shout out to this kid of mine, 14 years old and has a PT job at Burger King, not only does he work every day he can including weekends when most kids are out enjoying their summer he goes in early and stays late almost every time he works, he loves every minute of it. Making his own money, saving for a car, being responsible in his decisions, becoming a respectable young man!!! I couldn’t be more proud of him! Some of y’all lazy, grown ass people out there should take notes!!!”

Little did this father know, however, that his post would anger many of his Facebook friends.

Apparently, not everyone loved the idea of such a young boy being behind the counter as they believed he should be living his childhood to the fullest instead.

There were also those who stood by this father’s side and said he indeed had a lot to be proud of.

Although it depends from state to state, in general, the minimum working age in the United States is around 14 years old, for non-agricultural jobs. The number of hours is also restricted, and it is usually around 15 hours a week. Children under 18 are no allowed to work in fields involving hazardous professions.

This might be one of the reasons why many criticized Chris who wrote that his son has been working seven days a week.

According to him, the boy loves his job and he could be seen smiling while working and wearing his uniform.

Deaf hiker falls 700 feet, but when rescuers finally find her, she isn’t alone

Amelia Milling is a 21-year-old hiker who loves being outdoors. She’s a pro, but recently she found herself in trouble after one of her trekking poles suddenly snapped and she lost her balance. As a result, she fell 300-feet down the side of the snowy mountain, hitting a large boulder on the way down. Shortly after, she fell 400 more feet down. Surprisingly, she only hurt her leg and didn’t sustain any major injuries.

As she was on the ground, Amelia, who is deaf, saw a creature that resembled a wolf and got very scared but she soon realized it was in fact a white husky.

The dog had a collar around the neck and Amelia assumed he belonged to someone. The dog, whose name was Nanook, was in fact a specially trained dog to help lost hikers find their way back home.

Amelia felt she was safe and she and Nanook got back on the trail. However, as they came upon a river they needed to cross, Amelia was pulled down by the strong current. As she was dragged down, Nanook grabbed a hold of her backpack and managed to pull her out of the water to safety.

Amelia then used her SPOT beacon (a GPS device that alerts rescuers of her location).

Thanks to it, rescuers located Amelia and the hero dog shortly after.

She says that Nanook is her real life hero. He never missed her side and saved her from drowning so she treated him with some snacks and is forever grateful she got to meet him.

Meghan breaks down in tears in trailer for new documentary series ‘Meghan & Harry’

The trailer for the much anticipated documentary featuring Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is finally here, and from what it shows, we are likely to witness yet another dispute between the Sussexes and the Firm.

Available on YouTube, the trailer starts with a slideshow of photos of the Duke and Duchess taking a selfie, their wedding day, and separate photos of the two from the time they were young until this very day.

The video gathered over 1.9 million views in just 24 hours and everything indicates that something huge will be revealed in the documentary that will be released on Netflix.

Many believe that the timing for the trailer wasn’t the most suitable one because it overlaps with Kate and William’s visit of the States. The Prince and Princess of Wales are attending the Earthshot Prize Awards in Boston but there are no indications whether the brothers and their spouses would see each other. Many believe that even though sources claimed a family meeting is likely to take place, the trailer might change that.

Youtube/Netflix

Speaking of the documentary, a Netflix spokesperson said, “In an unprecedented and in-depth documentary series, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex share the other side of their high-profile love story.”

At the very beginning, Harry could be heard saying, “No one sees what is happening behind closed doors. I had to do everything I could to protect my family,” while Meghan, who was showed wiping tears at one particular moment, says, “When the stakes are this high, doesn’t it make more sense to hear our story from us?” 

Most royal experts condemn the Sussexes for going public about the issues they have with the rest of the royal family, claiming these all-tell interviews during which accusations are brought are something Harry and Meghan should be ashamed of.

“Here it is, the day before Prince William and Catherine’s big royal event in the USA. Bitter Prince Harry and Meghan,” royal expert Richard Eden posted on Twitter.

“I’m appalled by the trailer for Prince Harry and Meghan’s Netflix reality show – and so are Prince William and Catherine’s inner circle,” he added.

“Right on cue, Harry and Meghan drop the trailer for their victimhood fest on Netflix. Shameless,” GB News presenter Dan Wootton said. “Meghan has already destroyed the Markles. Now Harry is trying to destroy the Windsors. Small mercy that the late Queen doesn’t have to live through this.”

The documentary comes after the news of Harry’s new book titled Spare.

According to reports, the upcoming memoir which has been a talking point for quite some time now, will likely create new tensions as Harry is apparently planning on focusing on the rift between him and William, as well as his strained relationship with his father, the King of England.

The publishing company Penguin Random House that will release the memoir claims Harry’s all-tell book will be an “accurate and wholly truthful” account of his life.

“Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him,” Random House said in the press release, teasing the book as an “honest and captivating personal portrait.”

Youtube/Netflix

The name of the memoir, Spare, might address Harry’s “spare” role as the second son of a King, or that maybe he is being “spared” from the Royal Family now that he has left, Harper Bazaar speculates.

“It’s juicy, that’s for sure,” a NY publishing source shared with Page Six.

“There’s a lot of new stories in there about the past that Harry has not spoken about before, about his childhood … there is some content in there that should make his family nervous,” another publishing insider added.

Further, the magazine reported that Harry has been paid $20 million upfront by Penguin Random House.

Youtube/Netflix

According to royal expert Angela Levin, Harry and Meghan are perfectly aware that their documentary, as well as Harry’s book, would anger the members of the Firm and that might be one of the reasons why they allegedly declined the invitation to spend Christmas in Britain and honor King Charles who is hosting the event for the first time as a monarch.

“It’s been said that they’re not coming but it [is] also I think on what the documentary is like whether or not they would be invited at all,” Levein told The Sun.

“It could be a case where the royals don’t want them there after the documentary.”

What’s most, Levin says that Charles, Camilla, and the rest of the royals “want to make it a very positive day after the Queen’s death and I think the Sussexes presence would most certainly dampen that.”

“I think will be a huge relief for the rest of the family.”

Have you seen the trailer already? What do you think of it? Will it worsen the relationship between Harry and his family even further?

Young boy with blue eyes, white hairs and lightning mark down his face goes viral

Everyone is beautiful in their own way, but there are those people who are gifted with enchanting looks, such as the sweet young boy from this story.

Having a dark skin and vividly blue eyes, the sweet boy looks incredibly adorable. But what makes him even more special is the white patch of hair just above his forehead and a white line which spreads to his face and resembles a light-striking.

raoultsasa0 via TikTok

When a video of this boy was first shared on TikTok by user Raoul Tsasa, it caused a stir and everyone was eager to learn more about him. However, except for the videos and a couple of photos, not much is known about him. No information regarding his name, age, or place of living has been provided.

Many users of the social-networking site commented on the videos which have been seen millions of times.

One person wrote, “I see a storm cloud upon his head, lightning down the center of his face between two bodies of water, his eyes.” Another said, “He looks so unique. He shouldn’t struggle to be a great actor. He already stands out among the crowd.” Third added, “He is a masterpiece of beauty.” Honestly, we can’t agree more.

User Jamie La Chaky shared his suspicions about what could have been the reason behind this boy’s striking looks. “I believe he has Waardenburg Syndrome,” he wrote.

This syndrome represents a group of genetic conditions characterized by varying degrees of hearing loss and differences in the coloring (pigmentation) of the eyes, hair, and skin.

One thing is certain, no matter what caused them, this young boy’s features are breathtaking, don’t you agree?

The actress was once referred to as ‘America’s Sweetheart’

Being a versatile actress with a number of films under her belt, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Renée Zellweger stood out yet again with her performance in The Thing About Pam.

The film, featuring Zellweger as Pam Hupp, consists of six episodes based on the murder of Betsy Faria in 2011. The one person convicted was Faria’s husband who claimed he was innocent the entire time. Further, the plot revealed a brutal crime set off a chain of events that exposed a devilish scheme deeply involving Pam.

Zellweger offered a brilliant performance which truly shined when real life photos and footage of Pam Hupp appeared over the closing credits.

“That was something that we really wanted to do to show the real life Pam and hearken back to all these moments in our series where we reflected her costume, her mannerisms. You can really see how transformative Renée was in her physicality, in her carriage, in her cadence,” show runner Jenny Klein said.

Zellweger herself spoke of the role and the transformation she has undergone for the sake of the role which received positive critics. “This woman was convicted of murder, but I find myself siding with her and curious as to what brought her here.

“After playing this character, my perspective on these issues has shifted.”

The Oscar winning actress is no stranger to drastic transformations, something we have witnessed before with her iconic role of Bridget Jones in Bridget Jones’s Diary, as well as in Judy.

And now speaking of her recent project, The Thing About Pam, the actress shared with Vanity Fair what it took to prepare for the role regarding the physical appearance.

“It was pretty much head to toe. It was prosthetics, it was a [padded] suit, it was the choice of clothing, it was the briskness in her step-step-step, her gait,” she shared. “All of those things were really important because all those bits and pieces are what construct the person that we project our own conclusions and presumptions onto.”

“From a creative perspective, it seemed like a really interesting story to tell,” Zellweger shared with People. “As an actress, a really interesting character to play, an unusual person, something that I’d never done before. As a storyteller, it just seemed like a great opportunity to explore the why and how around a case like this.”

The series is now available on Peacock and NBC on Demand.

Steve Harvey crashes on his show during this surprising section

Birthdays are those special celebrations which remind us that we completed another ride around the sun.

However, not many people love big parties and pomps. Instead, they tend to celebrate it with their inner circle of family and friends.

However, when you are famous, especially if you are one of the most famous hosts and comedians there are, this isn’t always possible.

Some years ago, when great Steve Harvey had his birthday, he reminded everyone that he didn’t want anything big. Well, it turned out that the staff working with him on his shows didn’t listen.

They came up with an incredible idea and Harvey loved it so much that he simply couldn’t stop tears from running down his face. He didn’t care if people would say that grown men don’t cry because the moment was so emotional he simply couldn’t contain himself from expressing his feelings.

While on the show, he read the following lines out of the telepromter, “Calling in by satellite from Orlando. Let’s see who it is.” Reading the word Orlando, Harvey stopped for a while because it reminded him of the times he resided there at the very start of his career when his life was unstable and nearly crumbling down.

He somehow knew who he was about to see.

As a man showed on the screen, Harvey got emotional.

“Hello, my name is Rich Liss and I’m calling to wish you a happy birthday,” the man said, to what the host replied, “Hey, man. Man, I love you.”

Rich then tells Harvey there is someone else who wants to see him and Harvey immediately guesses it’s Becky, Rich’s wife.

Rich, Becky, and Harvey go way back when young Harvey was struggling and these two people offered him a contract, some money, and helped him get back on his feet. Years later, Harvey still hasn’t forgotten how generous and loving they were towards him.

Seeing the video, people took their time to comment saying Harvey’s tears just show how kind and genuine he is as a person.

“The fact that Steve Harvey is a public figure and is all over the place and they never tried to reach out just shows they did what they did out of the kindness in the heart and they did it with 0 expectations of anything in return. I hope they’ve stayed in contact and still talk, that’s the true definition of family right there,” one person wrote. “Steve Harvey is one man who never forgot where he came from and always gives back,” another added.

Simon Cowell sparks concerns with appearance as fans ‘don’t recognise him’

When it comes to music talent shows, Simon Cowell is the first name that comes to mind. He’s considered one of the strictest and most harsh judges, but his experience in the music business and industry gives him all the right to tell contestants the truth about their performance on the stage of American Idol, America’s Got Talent and The X Factor.

His scathing critical remarks became sort of trademark on the shows and people can’t wait to hear him judge the way only he can.

Some of the music names we have Cowell to thank for are WestlifeLittle MixLeona LewisOlly MursFifth Harmony, and Il Divo.

However, over the years, Cowell has made headlines because of his appearance which changed to the extent that fans say he’s unrecognizable.

In a video in which he calls on people to audition for the next series of Britain’s Got Talent, Simon looks so strange that his looks caused concerns.

“Simon Cowell brought to you via Nintendo Gamecube it seems,” one person wrote. “Ya wouldn’t think he had work done at all. Flawless,” another added.

“What have you done to your face?!?!” a third asked in the comments section under the video.

This isn’t the first time for fans and people to get concerned over Simon’s physics. Many believe that he used too much botox over the years and it’s a sad, sad thing that the music genius doesn’t resemble his old self any longer.

On a very cold night, a rich man met a homeless old man outside

Whether or not we keep the promises we give to others speak of the kind of people we are. Sadly, sometimes it happens that we fail to do what we promised to and even if that doesn’t feel like a big deal to us, it can break someone’s heart and make them lose faith in humanity.

The following story is an example that we should never give a promise unless we are 100% sure we can fulfill it.

One day, a rich man spotted an elderly homeless man sitting in the cold. He felt sorry so he decided to approach him.

“I see you don’t have a winter coat, you’re not cold?” The old man starred at him for some time and then replied: “I don’t, but I’m used to it.” The rich man, surprised and saddened by the answer he received, said to the homeless man, “Wait for me! I’m going into my house now and I’m going to bring you a thick coat to keep you warm at night.”

The elderly man was over the moon. He couldn’t believe someone found the time to do a good deed for him.

Unfortunately, once he went home, the rich man forgot about the homeless. He only remembered the promise he gave the following morning and quickly rushed outside to give the coat to the poor man. Sadly, it was too late. The elderly man wasn’t there, instead, there was a note which read, “When I didn’t have thick clothes, I had the strength to fight the cold weather, because I was used to it, but when you promised to help me, I attached myself to your promise and that took my strength to resist.”

The man had died, and that crushed the rich man’s world.

This story is yet another reminder that our promises should be sacred and we should never broke them because they can mean the world to those in need.

Jon Provost AKA Little Timmy from ‘Lassie’ celebrates his 72nd birthday and he’s aging like a fine wine

Actor Jon Provost, who started his Hollywood career at the age of just three when he was cast as Jane Wyman and Sterling Hayden’s son in the film So Big, will forever be associated with the heroic Rough Collie Lassie.

The series ran for 17 seasons and it even made a transition from black and white to color during the ’60s.

Jon joined the series at the top of season four when he and his family adopted the much-loved dog.

Today, Provost, who played the sweet little boy Timmy Martin, is 72 years old but he still recalls the time he filmed the series and the bond he had with the three different dogs who played the role of Lassie, one of the most famous TV dogs there are.

So how did Provost found himself under the spotlight at such a young age?

Well, it turns out that his mother brought him to his first ever audition when he was still a toddler because she was a huge fan of Jane Wyman and hoped to get a signed autograph from her. Luckily, they got a lot more when Provost was cast for the role.

His parents weren’t in any way associated to the world of entertainment as his father was an aeronautical engineer.

”My parents weren’t Hollywood people. My father is from Alabama and my mother is from Texas,” the child actor explained.

“I didn’t have an agent, I got one and that led to more movies like The Country Girl with Bing Crosby and Grace Kelly. I did about 12 movies before I started ‘Lassie,’” he told Fox News.

Provost added, “I did the show for seven years, 249 half-hour episodes. I worked with three different Lassies. The last dog I worked with, I worked with him for five years alone.”

“We grew up together. For five years, we saw each other five days a week and sometimes on weekends.

Speaking of how smart and how well-behaved the dog was, Provost confessed jokingly, “The actors made more mistakes than the dog. They were more of a problem.”

Once the show was over, Provost went on to stare in other films, but he eventually left Hollywood.

Wikipedia

He was married to Sandy Goosens, with whom he has two children.

However, after almost fifteen years together, the couple split and Provost found love again with author and researcher Laurie Jacobson.

Rod Stewart sad news – Prayers needed

Sir Rod Stewart is a legendary British rock and pop legend. Having sold over 250 million records worldwide, he is among the best-selling music artists of all time.

In 2008, Billboard magazine ranked him the 17th most successful artist on the “Billboard Hot 100 All-Time Top Artists.” Stewart was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994 as a solo artist, the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2006, and he was inducted a second time into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012 as a member of Faces.

Back in 2019, the Grammy and Brit Award recipient revealed that he had successfully been treated of prostate cancer which he battled for three years.

Stewart went public with his diagnosis at a fundraising event for the Prostate Project and European Tour Foundation charity in Surrey, England.

“No one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody,” the father-of-eight said. “I’m in the clear, now, simply because I caught it early. I have so many tests.”

He then said he wanted to raise awareness and urged men to get checked on a regular basis to ensure early detection. “Guys, you’ve got to really go to the doctor. Finger up the bum, no harm done,” the musician whose hits include “Maggie May” and “I Don’t Want To Talk About It” added.

Prostate Cancer UK s the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men, and it’s estimated that by 2030, prostate cancer will be the most commonly diagnosed cancer overall.

This wasn’t the first time for Sir Rod Stewart to be diagnosed with cancer. In 2010, he felt a lump on his throat which turned out to be cancerous.

“I felt fearful, vulnerable to a degree that I never had before,” he later wrote in an autobiography, but the tumour was quickly removed. “No chemotherapy was required – which, in turn, meant there was no risk that I’d lose my hair,” he wrote. “And let’s face it: if we’re ranking threats to the survival of my career, losing my hair would be second only to losing my voice.”

Luckily, today he’s in great health.

Michael Bublé breaks down in tears over son Noah’s health issues

Loved by millions, Canadian-born singer Michael Bublé reached worldwide fame back in 2005 with his album It’s Time and his 2007 album Call Me Irresponsible, which reached number one on the Canadian Albums Chart, the UK Albums Chart, the US Billboard 200, and several others.

Over the years, the Grammy Award winner has sold over 75 million records worldwide, but despite the enormous fame he enjoys, he has stayed grounded.

Michael is married to Argentine actress Luisana Lopilato with whom he has four children.

The couple’s son Noah, who will be 9 this year, has gone through an ordeal when he was diagnosed with liver cancer at the age of just 3.

At the time the singer heard the devastating news, he was promoting his ninth studio album Nobody But Me. It was shortly before performing at The One Show on BBC One in London.

“Three minutes before I came on, my wife texted and told me something was wrong,” he said during an interview with U.K.’s Evening Standard in July 2018, and added, “I just died.”

Luckily, Noah is now in remission, but Bublé described the ordeal as “the worst possible thing that you could hear as a parent, and as maybe a human being.”

“I much rather would have it have been me. Many times I wish that it had been,” the musician said and added that the experience made them even stronger as a family and gave them a new outlook at life.

On Noah’s eight birthday, Bublé shared an emotional post on Instagram, writing, “Today my hero turns 8. I’ve never met anyone as brave… I’ve never known anyone as kind or as good-hearted… and I’ll never truly be able to express how proud I am, or how deep and profound Mommy’s and my love is for you. You’ve blessed our lives in every way.”

Along with the touching message, the musician shared two photos of him and Noah over the years.

Bublé said that the prayers they received by fans, friends, and strangers helped them in their battle against the cancer as a family.

Queen Elizabeth’s Christmas speech was the ‘final straw’ for Meghan and Harry, according to authors

With Harry’s memoir being in the process of making, all eyes are on the royals yet again.

According to the publishing house Random House, the book which is about to be released in the weeks to come is eagerly anticipated by the media and the wide public.

In a press release, they stated, “Spare takes readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the twentieth century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in sorrow and horror.

“With its raw, unflinching honesty, Spare is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.”

James Manning- WPA Pool/Getty Images

When Harry announced his book, he said, “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born, but as the man, I have become. I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”

“I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”

One might say that what the book is about to reveal will further ruin the bridges between Harry and his family, and although no one knows with certainty what the prince will communicate, several outlets reported the book will reveal a number of bombshells.

As of now, the family, just like any other out there, is getting ready for the celebration of Christmas. During the years, they have celebrated the holiday with family gatherings hosted by the Queen herself. However, now that she passed away, it is the new monarch, King Charles, who would be hosting the Christmas celebration.

US Weekly reported that the Prince and Princess of Wales are keen on celebrating the most magical day of the year with their family at Sandringham. This is because they want to give their three children a yearly family tradition.

“It’s important to them that their kids share childhood traditions like their school pals,” the insider told Us Weekly in 2018.

“They’re going all-out to make it extra special.”

They, however, would certainly attend the formal dinner on Christmas Eve, often including Norfolk shrimp and lamb.

The morning, as per tradition, is reserved for a classic English breakfast consisting of eggs, sausages, bacon, and beans. 

Following the traditional visit to St Mary Magdalene Church, the royals have their Christmas lunch, the main course of which being a roast turkey.

As mentioned before, this year’s celebration will be hosted by King Charles. At the same time, after 70 years, he would give the annual speech for the first time ever as King.

And as the public is eager to tune in, royal experts believe that Harry and Meghan won’t be among those who would listen to what the King has to say as they have already allegedly declined the invitation to spend Christmas with the royal family.

Another reason would be that according to experts, it was such a speech, delivered by the Queen in 2019, that was the final straw which made the Sussexes step down from their royal duties.

When the Queen addressed the nation during the speech in question, there were plenty of photos of each member of the family in the background, but not Meghan’s or Harry’s. This was interpreted by many as a sign that the Sussexes weren’t considered a fundamental part of the family. At the time, the couple had already started transitioning to a non-royal life. But ‘photo-gate’, as it was dubbed in a number of tabloids, was the final nail in the coffin.

Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand of the biography Finding Freedom claim that Harry and Meghan felt like they “had long been sidelined by the institution and were not a fundamental part of its future.”

“One didn’t have to look further than the family photos displayed during the Queen’s Speech on Christmas Day,” they wrote.

“Palace sources insisted that the photos were chosen to represent the direct line of succession, but for Harry and Meghan, it had been yet another sign that they needed to consider their own path.”

Allegedly, before the speech, Queen Elizabeth removed a photo of Harry and Meghan, but left one showing her and Prince Philip meeting Archie for the very first time.

“(The queen) loves all of her children and grandchildren, there’s no doubt about that,” he told Today. “But when it comes to ‘The Firm,’ as they call the royal family, she is all business,” author Christopher Andersen wrote.

“That’s why she wouldn’t allow Harry and Meghan to remain as kind of part-time royals on the terms that they wanted.”
