Princess Diana and Princess Margaret’s secret royal feud

Celebrity life
PRINCESS Diana’s biggest enemy behind palace doors wasn’t her husband, who was reportedly having an affair with his ex-girlfriend, but rather his aunt, the Countess of Snowdon. British author Craig Brown recently published a book on Queen Elizabeth II’s sibling titled Ninety-Nine Glimpses Of Princess Margaret, which attempts to demystify the high-profile royal depicted on Netflix’s hit series, The Crown. Brown told Fox News he was able to track down friends and other sources close to Margaret, who died in 2002, aged 71, after a series of health issues. “People are willing to speak out about her,” Brown said. “I supposed it’s because of the length of time. Her contemporaries are still alive and their attitudes have changed. … And that era is now gone.” Princess Diana and Princess

RONAN Keating has revealed which Oscar-nominated movie he almost starred in. During a chat to promote his role on Channel 7’s upcoming TV show, All Together Now, the Boyzone singer opened up to news.com.au about the Hollywood films he’s auditioned for. “Baz Luhrmann brought me to New York and I read for Moulin Rouge,” Keating said. “He flew me to New York and there was Ewan (McGregor) who got the gig, Leo (DiCaprio) who didn’t get the gig and myself, the three of us. “I met Leo not long ago and we were chatting, we were actually in Sydney playing cards, and I said, ‘Man, what about … Moulin Rouge? F**k me, I couldn’t act!’ He said, ‘Hey Ronan, you couldn’t act, and I couldn’t f***ing sing for sh*t!’” Nicole Kidman with Ewan McGregor in Moulin Rouge.Source:News Limited In 2014

Happy Monday, cheeps! In honor of Martin Luther King Day, CNET is, technically, closed -- but that doesn't mean I'm going to leave you deal-less. Indeed, because of yesterday's ah-mazing NFL playoffs, I feel obligated to bring you a similarly amazing TV deal. If those two games weren't enough to whet your appetite for a newer, bigger screen, nothing will. For a limited time, and while supplies last, Best Buy has the Hisense R7 Series 55-inch HDR 4K TV with Roku for just $299.99. That's $200 off the regular price and a pretty stellar deal on a TV with built-in Roku. Hisense? This Chinese company doesn't have quite the name recognition of TCL, which makes some of CNET's favorite budget TVs. But it's a direct rival, no question, and on paper its screens seem every bit as good. I'm not s

In a story with eerie similarities to The Other Boleyn Girl, Prince Charles had his sights set on Diana Spencer’s older sister long before his turbulent royal marriage. Lady Sarah Spencer had a fling with the heir to the throne back in 1977, four years before Charles and Lady Diana announced their engagement to the world, and set in motion one of the most tumultuous and dysfunctional periods in modern royal history. The day Diana and Charles announced their engagement.

TV and Movies
We got our first look at Danny Rand's return at Comic-Con 2018 and now Netflix has dropped the first official trailer for Iron Fist's second season. It gives us another look at Iron Fist's comic-inspired outfit, Danny's former bestie Davos (who doesn't seem so friendly anymore) and plenty of close-ups of fists being clenched, faces being kicked and even a heavy shot to the groin. The increasing levels of fisticuffs will come as good news to those who criticized the show's first season for playing it safe. You can view the full trailer below.   I told you. Punchier, kickier and at least double the amount of glowing fists. All 10 episodes of Iron Fist season 2 will premiere on Netflix Sept. 7. Below is the official synopsis: 'Danny Rand (Finn Jones), alongside his partner Collee

It’s hard to believe someone as talented, nice and attractive as Dr Chris Brown is single. And even he’s surprised. The TV star, 40, opened up to Stellar Magazine about how disappointed he is that he hasn’t met the right woman yet. “It surprised me how much it got to me,” he said about being single at 40. “It certainly made me look at where I am in my life. “If you’d told me at 20 I’d be unmarried and without kids, I probably would’ve been horrified. But it’s my doing. I’ve probably prioritised work more than I potentially should have over the past 10 years — to the detriment of my personal life. I love my life, but it’s not without sacrifice.” The I’m a Celeb co-host was recently linked to The Loop presenter Liv Phyland, but there are rumours the couple ended their relationship late

Here are the four must-see shows in Channel 10’s Pilot Week

TV and Movies
CHANNEL 10 is giving out new TV shows like Oprah gives away new cars. The TV network will air eight new programs in the next six days as part of its Pilot Week Experiment. The shows are basically auditioning for a permanent spot on our screens and Channel 10 says it will use “audience reaction, social media buzz and ratings” to determine which of the eight shows are popular enough to be given a full run on air next year. Only the most dedicated of couch potatoes will watch all eight shows, so I’m here to help you decide which ones you simply must tune in for. Let me stress I got only a very short sneak peek at each show, like two minutes worth, but some left a far more lasting impression than others. Here are the shows you should definitely check out in the coming days:
