‘Bridgerton’ Bombshell: Lady Whistledown’s True Identity Revealed In Season 1 Finale

Lady Whistledown’s identity remained a mystery until the season finale. The woman behind the gossip column was revealed, and her identity will change everything. Spoiler alert!

Who is Lady Whistledown? That’s the question fans and the characters in Bridgerton asked throughout the first season of the Netflix series. Her identity is revealed in the final moments of the finale, and Lady Whistledown is none other than Penelope Featherington!

The voice of Lady Whistledown may belong to Julie Andrews, but Penelope is the woman behind the gossip column. Penelope is likely someone you least expected, but if you’re a reader of Julia Quinn’s Bridgerton novels, then you already knew Penelope is Lady Whistledown herself.

The reveal is made after Eloise figures out that Lady Whistledown is not Madame Delacroix. Eloise had been spending most of her time trying to figure out Lady Whistledown’s identity and had theorized it was the dressmaker since she’s privy to everyone’s gossip. Queen Charlotte had also been urging Eloise to solve the mystery.

Eloise even devises a plan to unmask Lady Whistledown by going to the printing press shop Lady Whistledown uses to publish her newsletter. Eloise is unsuccessful in her attempt to catch Lady Whistledown. Later, when she discovers that Madame Delacroix is not the gossip columnist after all, Eloise is shaken to her core. Eloise should be well aware that Lady Whistledown will go to great lengths to shield her identity.

“And yet there is no ending in sight for this author, who recently became aware of a scheme to unmask her. My one worthy opponent indeed. Perhaps I will come forward one day… although you must know, dear reader, that decision will be entirely up to me. Yours truly, Lady Whistledown,” Julie Andrews narrates as Penelope takes down her hood in a carriage and reveals herself as Lady Whistledown with a sly smile on her face.

This is definitely a game-changer moving forward. Eloise is likely not to give up her fight to figure out Lady Whistledown’s identity, and it will get tougher for Penelope to keep this secret from her closest friend. Eloise could see Penelope’s secret-keeping as a betrayal, especially since Penelope has been pulling the strings of Bridgerton and Featherington families for quite some time now. Let’s get real, though: Lady Whistledown walked so Gossip Girl could run!

Emma Watson looked absolutely gorgeous wearing a tiny crop top made from recycled materials when she met with Al Gore to discuss climate change.

Emma Watson, 31, is not only super stylish, but she’s also eco-conscious and she proved that when she met with Al Gore to discuss climate change. For the occasion, Emma rocked a head-to-toe green floral Emilia Wickstead outfit that was made out of recycled yarn.

Emma’s top was a cropped cape that just covered her shoulders and ended at her chest, revealing her black bra underneath. She styled the shirt with a matching high-waisted midi skirt that put her toned abs and tiny waist on full display.

Emma posted about her outfit and thanked the designer, writing, “Thank you to the loveliest Emilia for making me this beautiful custom piece. It was handmade in London using leftover fabrics consisting of 62% recycled yarn that was locally sourced, woven, and printed in Italy. I will be wearing this a lot!!”

In another photo posted to Emma’s Instagram, she posed with Al as she smiled ear-to-ear. She captioned the picture, “‘Mother Nature is telling us what the truth is about this crisis. I mean, it’s crazy what’s going on. Every night on the TV news is like a nature hike through the Book of Revelation.’ — @algore.”

Emma has been on a roll lately with her upcycled outfits and just the other day she attended the Earthshot Prize ceremony in London on October 17, wearing a stunning white blouse with black trousers.

Emma’s white blouse featured tulle ruffle layers and was made from 10 recycled wedding dresses from Oxfam. The front of the shirt had a lace neckline with cut-out embroidery while the side had an asymmetrical hemline. Meanwhile, the entire back of the dress was cut out, revealing her bare skin.

‘Gossip Girl’ Fans Can’t Get Over How Penn Badgley’s ‘You’ Co-Star Looks Just Like Hilary Duff

Published

Victoria Pedretti; Hilary Duff


Apparently Penn Badgley has a type! Twitter thinks his former ‘Gossip Girl’ lover, Hilary Duff, looks awfully similar to his ‘You’ wife, Victoria Pedretti.

Leave it to Twitter to come up with some wild Hollywood comparisons. In the week since You season 3 dropped on Netflix, fans have been tweeting that star Victoria Pedretti, 26, looks very similar to Hilary Duff, 34. And what makes this comparison even more noteworthy is that the two actresses have both been romantically involved on the small screen with none other than Penn Badgley, a.k.a Joe Goldberg in You, a.ka. Dan Humphrey in Gossip Girl. But let’s dive into these connections a little bit more, shall we?

So as any Gossip Girl fan knows, Penn, 34, rose to fame thanks to his performance in the hit teen drama. During season 3, he became romantically entangled with NYU beauty Olivia Burke, who is played by Hilary. The two had a brief, but memorable romance, which involved a threesome with Vanessa Abrams (Jessica Zhor). Hilary only played Olivia for six episodes before her storyline with Penn ended.

Now all these years later, Penn is back on the small screen as a psycho stalker-killer in Netflix’s hit You. Victoria was introduced in season 2 as Joe’s love interest, Love Quinn. The two develop a close bond (they’re both killers, after all!) and they get married and have a son once season 3 starts. Fans are now unapologetically comparing Victoria to Hilary in plenty of tweets, which is just hilarious considering their TV connection to Penn. Apparently this guy has a type when he’s at work!

On the screen, Penn clearly has a type. But his lover in real life is much different than either Victoria or Hilary, though not in a bad way! Penn married singer Domino Kirke, 37, in a super secret ceremony at a courthouse in Brooklyn, NY on February 27, 2017. When they tied the knot, Penn became a stepdad to Domino’s son Cassius, 12, whom she shares with ex Morgan O’Kane.

Penn and Domino later expanded their family when they welcomed their first child together, son James Badgley, in Aug. 2020. Penn has absolutely adored fatherhood, and he spends lots of time with his son. Except for when he’s killing as Joe Goldberg, of course.

Angelina Jolie In ‘Super Isolation’ After COVID-19 Exposure At ‘Eternals’ Premiere She Attended With Kids

Published

Angelina Jolie


Angelina Jolie brought along five of her six children to the Marvel event in Los Angeles, where she, along with several co-stars, were reportedly exposed to COVID.

Angelina Jolie, 46, was one of several people to reportedly be exposed to COVID-19 at Marvel’s Eternals premiere in Los Angeles on Oct. 18, according to Variety. The actress attended the star-studded event with five out of her six children — but now she is in “super isolation” along with co-stars Salma Hayek, Gemma Chan and Lauren Ridloff, as well as director Chloe Zhao. All five women had to miss the Elle’s “Women in Hollywood” event on Tuesday, where editor-in-chief Nina Garcia reportedly told the audience the the group was “just exposed, so to keep everyone safe those superheroes are now in super isolation.”

Disney also confirmed the possible exposures to Variety. A spokesperson said that while the premiere attendees have tested negative for COVID-19, the entire Eternals cast — which also includes Kit Harington, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani and more — will be “pivoting to virtual appearances rather than in-person events” to promote the new action film, which arrives in theaters on November 5.

It remains unclear how the cast members were exposed to COVID-19. It’s also unknown if guests at the event, including Angelina’s kids, are in isolation as well. The Maleficent star had brought along Maddox, 20, Zahara, 16, Shiloh, 15, Vivienne, 13, and Knox, 13, to the big event. Only Pax, 17, did not attend the outing with his famous mother, who shares all six of the kids with ex Brad Pitt.

At the Eternals premiere, Angelina rocked a stunning, strapless brown draped Balmain Resort 2022 gown. She also wore a gold chin cuff that was fastened between the inside of her bottom lip and all the way around the bottom of her chin. She posed for many photos on the carpet with the five kids, as well as with her fellow castmates.

Angelina stars in the Marvel movie as Thena, a fierce warrior Eternal who can form any weapon out of cosmic energy. While the film isn’t out yet, reports have said that Harry Styles (!) appears as Eros — though this has yet to be confirmed by the heads of Marvel/Disney.
