After watching Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s tell-all interview on March 7, Bethenny Frankel back-tracked on previous comments she made about Meghan, specifically. Read her public apology.
Bethenny Frankel changed her tune about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry after seeing the couple’s tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey on Sunday night. During the emotional sit-down — which took place in Montecito, CA, where Meghan and Harry are neighbors with the host — the expectant parents unveiled bombshell details about their life inside the palace walls. In the hours before the the interview aired, Bethenny tweeted, “Cry me a river,” in response to a fan tweet that included headlines about the Meghan and Harry’s estranged relationship with the Royal family. After facing major backlash for her comments, Bethenny tweeted an apology, following the broadcast.
I watched M & H sit down. Emotional distress & racism must feel suffocating & powerless. I’m a polarizing, unfiltered(often to a fault)flawed person w a voice. When I heard of the interview,during a pandemic, it felt like a surprising choice. I’m sorry if it hurt or offended you.

“I watched M & H sit down. Emotional distress & racism must feel suffocating & powerless,” she wrote, explaining, “I’m a polarizing, unfiltered (often to a fault) flawed person w a voice. When I heard of the interview, during a pandemic, it felt like a surprising choice. I’m sorry if it hurt or offended you,” she concluded.
Just hours earlier, the former Real Housewives of New York City star was whistling a much different tune. When one fan tweeted that the Royal staff hadn’t been “respectful” of Meghan, Bethenny replied with: “Cry me a river…the plight of being a game show host, fairly unknown actress, to suffering in a palace, [with] tiaras & 7 figure weddings for TWO WHOLE YEARS to being a household name [with] @Oprah on speed dial, fetching 7 [million] for interviews, hundreds of millions in media deals,” she tweeted, adding a thinking face emoji and the hashtag “Marry” for their names. HollywoodLife reached out to representatives for Harry and Meghan for comment at the time.

In a separate tweet, Bethenny continued: “If you hate me for saying it here don’t listen to my podcast #justbwithbethenny it’s littered with my opinion…I chose reality tv, to work towards making $, to be scrutinized & criticized.I took the trappings & the beatings along with it. It’s a rose [with] petals & thorns. People beg to enter the often toxic institution I signed up for. That WAS the life I chose. You can’t play stupid & smart.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s interview marked their first time speaking out since officially stepping down from their royal duties and moving from the U.K. to Montecito, California. In wake of the drama, Meghan’s close friends, including former Suits co-stars Patrick J. Adams and Abigail Spencer, as well as friend Jessica Mulroney, have stepped up to defend the actress.
Mark Wahlberg Honors Mom Alma After Her Death With Photo Of Her & His 4 Kids: ‘Miss You’
Mark Wahlberg paid tribute to his late mother, Alma Wahlberg, with a beautiful photo of her cuddling up with her grandchildren.
Gone, but not forgotten. Mark Wahlberg honored his mother, Ama Wahlberg on Instagram with a sweet photo two days after announcing the devastating news to his fans. The Transformers star, 49, posted a beautiful throwback of Ama sitting on a couch surrounded by his four adorable kids: Brendan, 12, Ella, 17, Grace, 11, and Michael, 15. Mark and his wife, Rhea Durham, are in on the cuddles, too.
He captioned the post, “Miss you grandma” with a red heart emoji. Mark announced 78-year-old Ama’s death in an April 18 tweet. The Daddy’s Home star posted a lovely photo of his mother with a huge smile on her face, captioning it, “My angel. Rest in peace.” Ama’s other children, including singer Donnie Wahlberg, also honored their mother online. Donnie, 51, penned a lengthy tribute on Instagram accompanied by a slideshow of photos and videos.
“I’m so blessed to have been brought into this world by, raised by, taught by and set on my life’s path by, such an amazing woman,” he wrote, in part. “My mom Alma’s joy for life, love and people — combined with a pride in her humble beginnings and refusal to forget where she came from — undoubtedly shaped me into the man that I am. She was, without a doubt, the most loving human being I’ve ever known.”
Ama was mother to nine children and was a regular fixture on Wahlburgers, the A&E reality show that followed the family’s Boston-based burger chain. The show, which aired from 2014 to 2019, showcased many members of the Wahlberg family, including son Paul Wahlberg — who later named another restaurant Alma Nova in her honor. “I was very hesitant and nervous at first,” Alma told USA Today in 2014 about being on the show. “[My sons] said, ‘You can talk to a wall, Ma. You won’t have any trouble.’”
Suri Cruise Sports Long Hair While Posing With Flowers & Goofing Off With Friends On 15th Birthday
Suri Cruise looked super sweet while enjoying her 15th birthday in the Big Apple! The teenager showed off her long hair and posed with some flowers as her friend snapped some pics!
Suri Cruise is another year older! The teenage daughter of Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise turned 15 years old on April 18, and she looked like she had a total blast on her big day. The newly minted 15-year-old spent her birthday out and about in New York City and was spotted having some low-key birthday fun. Suri and a few of her pals were seen snapping some photos together while posing with a pretty bouquet of pink and white carnations.
The birthday girl also showed off her long, brunette ‘do, and looked like the spitting image of her famous mom, 42. Naturally, Suri followed the necessary safety precautions while celebrating her birthday amid the COVID-19 pandemic. She and her friends wore protective face masks while having fun in the Big Apple. The teens only removed their face masks while smiling for a quick photo, or enjoying some delicious ice cream!
Despite her birthday falling during the middle of a pandemic, Suri truly showed the she was enjoying her day like so many around the world who celebrated their special days during COVID-19, as well. Suri’s mom, Katie, made sure to celebrate her daughter’s birthday by taking to Instagram and sharing a carousel of photos to her social media account. Far more precious than the intimate pics of Suri and her mom, however, was the sweet caption Katie wrote and dedicated to her teen.
“Happy 15th Birthday Sweetheart! I love you,” Katie wrote, adding a string of exclamation points and a number of emojis. “I can’t believe you are already 15!” Katie concluded the post. It’s hard to believe that Suri is already 15 years old. After all, it doesn’t seem like that long ago that she was just a tiny tot being photographed while out with her famous parents.
Over the course of the last few years, though, Suri’s adoring mom has made a concerted effort to offer her daughter as normal an upbringing as possible. Suri’s bond with her mom is so incredibly strong and it’s amazing to see the teen grow up to be her Katie’s mini-me. Fans cannot wait to see what the future holds for the teenager!
Happy 42nd Birthday, Kourtney Kardashian: Look Back At Her Hottest Photos Of All-Time
In honor of Kourtney Kardashian’s 42nd birthday, we’re looking back at some of her hottest outfits ever!
Kourtney Kardashian is celebrating another trip around the sun on April 18! The reality star turns 42 this year, and she has many reasons to celebrate. For the big day, we’re taking a trip down memory lane and looking back at some of the sexiest outfits that Kourtney has ever worn. From little black dresses to short shorts and more, Kourtney definitely knows how to dress to impress.
Black Leather Dress
In December 2019, Kourtney attended the Dior Men’s Fashion Show in Miami. She wore a black leather dress with thin straps, paired with strappy, open-toed heels. Although the dress reached down to Kourt’s knees, it provided a sexy, dominatrix style for her night out. She wore her hair in wet curls, with minimal jewelry and subtle makeup to complete the edgy look.
Purple Slip Dress
When it comes to mini dresses, Kourtney is definitely a pro. She’s even mastered the art of wearing lingerie as clothing! In June 2019, Kourtney enjoyed a night out with some friends, and she wore a purple slip dress for the occasion. The ensemble featured lace detailing on the edges, and could easily be doubled as a nightgown. However, Kourt dressed it up with some heels and it was the perfect mini for a night on the town!
High Slit Dress
Another one of Kourt’s sexiest looks was worn in Feb. 2019. Kourtney attended the amfAR Gala with sister Kim Kardashian and looked absolutely stunning. She rocked a black Versace dress featuring a double scoop neckline and a sexy thigh-high slit. The eldest KarJenner paired her look with pointed toe stilettos and styled her hair into a dramatic high ponytail.
These are just a few of Kourtney’s best looks, though. She’s one of the most fashion-forward celebs we know, so of course there are plenty of other outfits to admire. Luckily, we gathered some of her sexiest ensembles of all-time and put them in the gallery above for your viewing pleasure. Happy clicking – and happy birthday, Kourtney!
