Replicas of Megan Markle’s $135,000 wedding dress are expected to hit stores within 10 days of the wedding and could be worth up to $32 billion for designers. Designer Madeline Gardner says, “Meghan is a trend-setter. When she wears a coat, it sells out in a minute. I think she’ll push the envelope with her gown a little bit.”
Meghan Markle’s mom is preparing to speak out. Apparently, the very private Doria Ragland is in negotiations to sit down with Oprah Winfrey to talk about her famous daughter and Meghan’s experiences on her path to becoming a princess.
In other royal wedding news, The Duchess of York, Sarah ‘Fergie’ Ferguson, has not been invited to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s second wedding reception. She will be allowed to attend the public ceremony, but not the intimate, family one. “Numbers are limited to the evening party, she is not a member of the Royal Family anymore and Prince Charles doesn’t have time for her. He just can’t see why she is still such a big part of his brother’s life.”
The Met gala was last night and it was lit! The theme was “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” and it truly brought out the best in fashion! The designs were rich in colour and details, it was honestly a feast for the eye! Rihanna, who co-hosted the gala arrived dressed like the Pope. She wore a pearl and jewel-encrusted robe and matching papal mitre and necklace designed by Margiela. Katy Perry also turned heads by taking the red carpet in a gold Versace metallic mini dress, matching over-the-knee boots and an enormous pair of feathery white angel wings. And mama-to-be Cardi B and designer Jeremy Scott nearly stole the show in matching, pearl-embellished Moschino ensembles. Cardi’s entire dress, gloves, choker, and headpiece were covered in beads and ornate jewels.
Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gyllenhaal allegedly went on a secret date in New York City. A witness to the date says he had his arm around her almost the entire time. According to my source, there has always been chemistry between them, but it’s never been the right time. When she knew she was going to be in NYC, she let him know and he immediately asked her out to dinner. We will see if anything grows there.
Now speaking of Jennifer Aniston, her ex, Justin Theroux made his first red carpet appearance since his split from Jennifer, walking the red carpet at the 2018 Met Gala solo.

Johnny Depp reportedly attacked a crew member on the set of his latest movie. According to my source, Johnny was drinking all day on the set of LAbyrinth prior to the incident. Filming went long due to Johnny taking over directing his friends in a scene, so the movie’s filming permit for the streets of Los Angeles ran out. When a location manager let Johnny know that the scene had to wrap, Johnny reportedly attempted to punch the man and yelled, “I’ll give you $100,000 to punch me right now!” before he was pulled away. Director Brad Furman says the alleged incident was overblown and called Johnny “a consummate professional.” LAbyrinth stars Johnny as the real LAPD detective Russell Poole, who investigated the murder of Biggie Smalls.
