Did You Know Gary Sinise Raised $1.3M For American Veterans By Auctioning Off His Jeep, Twice?

Hollywood star Gary Sinise recently raised $1.3 million to help American veterans by auctioning off his jeep not once, but twice!

Gary Sinise is a Hollywood star who is best known for playing Vietnam War veteran Lt. Dan in the beloved 1994 movie Forrest Gump. When he’s not playing a veteran on the screen, however, Sinise has devoted much of his life to helping veterans in the real world through his eponymous charity, The Gary Sinise Foundation. In one of his more memorable, Gary Sinise auctioned off one very unique and patriotic Jeep to benefit his beloved Veterans.

Gary Sinise Auctions Off Jeep To Help Veterans
Rare reported the actor recently stepped up to help veterans once again by auctioning off an old jeep of his for $1.3 million.

The vehicle in question was a 1981 Jeep CJ7 that had been uniquely customized by Richard Rawling’s Gas Monkey Garage, who gave it a one-of-a-kind patriotic stars and stripes theme.

When Sinise announced that he was auctioning off the jeep, he added that all proceeds from it would go to military veterans and first responders.

Gary Sinise Raises $1.3 Million For Veterans

The jeep initially sold at auction for $200,000, and afterwards, Sunbelt Rentals stepped up to donate another $1 million.

Things only got better from there when the buyer sent the jeep across the block for a second time, and it ended up selling again for $100,000.

This brought the total proceeds from the jeep up to $1.3 million, all of which was donated to veterans and first responders!

Sinise was so overjoyed by the money raised that he threw in a private dinner with him in Los Angeles as well as a visit to the Gary Sinise Foundation.

“My first car auction, it’s going to be hard to top that,” he said afterwards. “There were a lot of veterans out there in the audience so I got to acknowledge them and say thank you.”

He Loves Helping Veterans
Ever since starring in Forrest Gump, Sinise has made helping veterans a huge priority in his life.

“When our veterans came home from the Vietnam War, they were not treated well and had to disappear into the shadows,” Sinise said. “When we started deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan, I wanted to do my part to make sure the men and women doing their part were appreciated.”

If only there were more stars in Hollywood like Gary Sinise!

“I’ve been hired to head the effort to determine whom to sue, when to sue, where to sue,” McMurtry told Fox News Digital. “We’re going to look at everything that’s been said, determine which of those comments are legally actionable, and proceed from there.”

Further, McMurtry declares that it’s “pretty much assured that there’s probably 10 to 15” solid legal cases against “large defendants” that spread misinformation prior to the Kenosha riots of 2020, and during Rittenhouse’s trial in November of last year.

McMurtry then proceeded to single out co-founder and Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg, as well as Facebook for a “factually false” designation of the Kenosha shooting as a “mass murder” incident, before a verdict was even reached.

In September of 2020, just a few days after the incident took place, Facebook deleted a video shared by media analyst Mark Dice, who wrote on Twitter, “Facebook just removed a video I posted showing Kyle Rittenhouse offering help to a wounded protester in Kenosha, and are threatening to delete my entire account.”

Dice took to YouTube to condemn Facebook’s shady practices, declaring that he “didn’t glorify, celebrate, or praise” Rittenhouse, explaining, “I simply showed a non-graphic video and explained, in very plain terms, exactly what the video showed. ”

A Facebook spokesman confirmed to Breitbart News that posts “in support” of Rittenhouse were being removed on account of the company designating the incident as a “mass murder.”

“We’ve designated the shooting in Kenosha a mass murder, and are removing posts in support of the shooter, including this one,” said the unnamed spokesman. The statement agrees with the notification Dice received upon sharing the video on the platform.

As per the notification shared by Dice, Facebook defines “dangerous” things like, “terrorist activity, organized hate or violence, mass or serial murder, human trafficking, criminal or harmful activity.”

Ahead of his trial, Rittenhouse was facing several charges for shooting three men during the riots that took place in Kenosha, Wisconsin, in August of 2020.

The charges included first-degree reckless homicide, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, and possession of a dangerous weapon by a person under 18, among others. In November of 2021, the Kenosha County Courthouse jury acquitted Rittenhouse of all five charges he was facing.

According to Rittenhouse’s lawyer, some of the social media platform’s questionable actions included Rittenhouse’s personal social media accounts being deactivated, and massive censoring of comments showing any kind of support for then 17-year-old.

“Let’s just use for an example what Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg said about [Rittenhouse],” McMurtry went on, adding that the social media platform perpetually said Rittenhouse “was involved in a mass murder incident.”

He explained, “This was not a mass murder incident. It was clearly, factually false,” adding, “To call somebody a mass murderer is seriously defamatory.”

“And then to use the power of social media to basically… censor any views that would take opposition to that mass murderer statement is a serious effort to destroy his character. And it was seriously mistaken, and seriously defamatory.”

What’s more, Rittenhouse’s lawyer also declared that Zuckerberg is “certainly going to be at the top of your list,” as he notes the social media platform’s false and defamatory statements, asserting these questionable practices are legally actionable, since his platform has an “outsized voice.”

“Facebook has an outsized voice, they can do a lot of damage, as compared to somebody maybe who has a small blog with 100 subscribers,” McMurtry elaborated, adding, “But we’re going to look at everything that we have access to, and that’s been published, and decide which ones are actionable.”

On Monday, Kyle Rittenhouse and his lawyer Todd McMurtry joined Fox News host Tucker Carlson, wherein the 19-year-old elaborated on the struggles he’s endured due to the blatant defamation campaigns pushed by corporate media.

“We are going to make the media pay for what they did to me,” Rittenhouse told Carlson. “They made it hard for me to live a normal life. I can’t go out into public. I can’t go to the store. It’s hard for me to go anywhere without security.”

He elaborated, “Doing basic things like taking my dog to the dog park is difficult. They made it really difficult to be normal, and they affected future job opportunities to me. I don’t think I’ll ever be able to work or get a job, because I’m afraid an employer may not hire me.”

Regarding what Rittenhouse and his legal team are planning to do with the tech companies that spread misinformation about the case, McMurtry explains that they will deal with social media platforms and celebrities that accused Kyle of being a mass murderer, or a white supremacist.

“Certainly Kyle was charged with a crime. News organizations are allowed to report on that. But calling somebody a murderer in certain circumstances can be actionable. Other things that media personalities, people on social media said were clearly defamatory,” McMurtry said.

Noting Carlson’s comment about Kyle being called a white supremacist by the media, McMurtry asserted, “I think your comment about calling Kyle a white supremacist is made up out of thin air. I don’t know how the media can claim that they didn’t make a statement made up out of thin air without engaging in actual malice, or most certainly negligence.”

“So, I think that we have some strong grounds to proceed. We are looking at… we’re starting to look at all those. We’re going to evaluate them, and look at opportunities to hold the media, and to hold tech accountable as Kyle’s promised,” he concluded.

In February of this year, after months of speculation, Kyle Rittenhouse officially announced that he was going to be taking legal action against corporate media, revealing that his legal team had decided to launch The Media Accountability Project.

He continued, “I don’t want to see anybody else have to deal with what I went through, so I want to hold them accountable for what they did to me, because I don’t want to see anybody have to go through what I went through.”

Rittenhouse also disclosed that Star Trek: Picard actress and The View host Whoopi Goldberg was one of the names on his list for news organizations and/or individuals that he and his legal team were planning on suing, as well as The Young Turks founder Cenk Uygur.

Well, right now, we’re looking at quite a few politicians, celebrities, athletes; Whoopi Goldberg’s on the list,” Rittenhouse told Carlson, explaining, “She called me a ‘murderer’ after I was acquitted by a jury of my peers. She went on to still say that.”

He further disclosed, “And there’s others. Don’t forget about Cenk from The Young Turks. He called me a murderer before the verdict, and continues to call me a murderer.”

“We’re going to hold everybody who’s lied about me accountable, such as — everybody who lied [and] called me a white supremacist,” Rittenhouse elaborated before concluding, “They’re all going to be held accountable, and we’re going to handle them in a courtroom.”

Shaking Elderly Man Asked Pizza Shop For Food That Would Be Thrown Out, Manager: ‘Make This Man Whatever He Wants’

When a trembling elderly man came into Kelley Square Pizza before closing time in Worcester, Massachusetts, his request for food that would be thrown away was met with kindness as the restaurant’s manager insisted that he get a freshly-made meal, free of charge.

Mike Alexander, a mechanic in Worcester, was waiting for his pizza to be ready when he noticed an older man enter the pizza shop. The elderly man’s hands were trembling, he leaned on a cane, and he was wearing two coats.

“I’m at Kelley square pizza waiting for my pizza to cook,” Mike wrote, “and this little crippled old guy comes in. He’s leaning on this makeshift cane and wearing two coats. His hands are trembling and he’s wondering who is managing.”
Kelley Square Pizza was closing for the night, but the manager working behind the counter gave the elderly man his full attention. The trembling old man was obviously very hungry, and he was searching for any food that might be thrown away or that he could buy at a discount.

“The man behind the counter replies, and without hesitation tells the other kid to stop cleaning (they close at 130). The elderly man asks if there’s anything that would be thrown out he could buy cheap.”

Without hesitation, the kind manager tells his employee to instead make this elderly man anything that his heart desires.

“The manager then tells the kid to make this man whatever he wants. I just want everyone to know that during these tough and crazy times where others in the world are out to hurt… theres still a lot of good. There’s a lot of great. Start with yourselves. Open a door, pay for a coffee, pass on some food, donate to something, thank a vet, hang out with the elderly. Anything.”

Many hearts online have been touched by the manager’s kindness for the hungry old man.

“Nothing makes me happier than hearing about people being wonderful to other people. Thank you!” commented Desiree P.

“God bless all of you for your generosity in feeding this elderly man who couldn’t buy himself a warm meal. It’s a tough world we live in and so many people going on notice… You all have a big heart and a blessed soul. I praise those to the highest pedestal for the kindness you are doing. Thank you, God will reward you all,” shared Kim J.

“A man came into the service dept at the dealership I work in and asked if he could borrow a wrench to tighten a battery cable. I said I wasn’t able to loan out the techs tools but I could get that done for him. So we did. A few minutes later he walks back in and asked to use the phone. I said sure. He attempted to contact a guy that he said needed some work done. Turns out the guy ran out of gas right after he left and was calling someone to offer to work for some gas money. He lost his job and home over missing too much time due to illness and was living in the car. I gave him my cash for gas and had one of our guys go get it in a fuel can.” wrote Clif H.

“Yes! So many genuine acts of human kindness daily, all we have to do is open our eyes. We can all help the many who need help!” commented Mary G.

“I was in burger king a few days ago. It was cold outside. An elderly woman comes in, has about 60 cents and asked for a coffee with the senior discount. The lady looked homely but her coffee came out to 84 cents. I told the cashier [to] make it a large and give her back her change; it’s on me. The lady started to cry and thanked me and asked to give me a hug, so I did… I was waiting for my food when the manager came with her coffee plus some food. He told her to sit and enjoy your food and coffee,” shared Gabrielle P.

You are Loved.

Richard Thomas AKA John-Boy from ‘The Waltons’ is Father of 7 Kids Including Triplet Daughters

Actor Richard Thomas has been in the movie industry for over six decades, and among the many film projects that he took on, “The Waltons” stands out as one that resonates most with his real life.

Renowned actor Richard Thomas is now in his early 70s, but through the years and in the early stages of his career, Richard graced our screens, taking on several roles.

His most notable role is as the eldest child, John-Boy, in the CBS series, “The Waltons,” through the show’s nine seasons. Many years after “The Waltons” ended, Thomas relived the show through his real-life family.

INSIDE RICHARD THOMAS’ FAMILY

Thomas played the eldest of seven children in the 1970s series and like life imitating art, the actor is a proud father of seven children from two women.

His first marriage was with Alma Gonzales and together they welcomed four children. After his divorce from Gonzales in 1993, he got married again to Georgiana Bischoff.

He has been married to his second wife, Bischoff since 1994 and the pair are parents to seven children in their blended family and many grandkids. All of the kids are grown with the oldest in his mid-20s.

Speaking about raising his kids, Thomas noted it was not easy blending their seven kids. He shared that it caused tension between him and Bischoff but they managed to pull through.

The movie star was filming in new york, but he had to drop everything for the sake of his girls.

ALL ABOUT THOMAS’ KIDS

Thomas is a doting father to son Richard Jr, daughters Gwyneth, Barbara, Pilar, and Montana. The names of the other two are not known as they live private lives.

The veteran actor had Richard and his girls, who are triplets from his first marriage. The triplets’ birth made quite the headline when it happened because of the surrounding situation.

HIS TRIPLET DAUGHTERS

Thomas welcomed his triplets in 1981, but their birth came as a surprise, almost shocking. This is because the actor and his then-wife, Gonzales, were confident that they would have twins.

Twins ran in both sides of their family, and when Gonzales did her sonogram at the third and seventh months, the doctors confirmed the babies were twins.

However, they were in for a surprise during delivery. Thomas once recalled being called by his wife, who only had a few words, indicating that the babies were three.

At the time, the “A Walton Easter” actor was away from home. The movie star was filming in New York, but he had to drop everything for the sake of his girls.

He informed his stage manager and headed off to where his wife was birthing. The doctors performed a cesarean section and successfully gave birth to the triplet girls.

After the girls’ births, they were given the monikers John Girl I, John Girl II, and John Girl III by fans until Thomas announced their beautiful names which were gleaned from the family.

Richard opened up on how his oldest son, Richard Jr, who was five at the time, fawned over his sisters. The TV star relayed that the young boy initially disliked the idea of a sibling.

At the time, Richard also mentioned how he had to leave New York in a hurry while filing “Fifth of July.” He was said to be out of the show for one month.

In a 1993 interview, Thomas gushed about his kids, noting that his oldest son had no interest in acting, but his daughters “were crazy about theatre.” However, it seems none followed in his footsteps.

INSIDE HIS CAREER

After “The Waltons” ended, Thomas kept acting but morphed into a lot of stage work. His works on stage include “Richard II” and “Death of Danton.” His TV roles include “Precious Victims, “Linda,” and “Death in Small Doses.”

Meet Mariska Hargitay’s Actor Parents Mickey Hargitay & Jayne Mansfield Who Died When She Was 3

Fans recognize Mariska Hargitay as the commanding officer of the Manhattan Special Victims Unit. She plays Olivia Benson in the police procedural and legal drama television series “Law & Order.” However, not many know that her parents were also actors.

Mariska Hargitay was born in 1964 to father Mickey Hargitay and mother Jayne Mansfield. Both her parents were actors, and, unsurprisingly, Hargitay grew to become one of Hollywood’s best actresses.

Her father, Mickey Hargitay, was born in Budapest, and to escape being sent to the Nazi war, Mickey moved to the US, settling in Indianapolis. His first jobs were working as a builder and a performer in nightclubs.

MEET MICKEY HARGITAY

During one of such acts, he met his first wife, Mary Birge. One day, he walked into a gym, and to the astonishment of the gym owner, he lifted a 215lb bar over his head.

He then began a career in bodybuilding that led him to win the Mr. Indianapolis and Mr. Eatern America titles. He worked his way up to win the Mr. Universe contest in 1955. Propelled by his good looks and body, Mickey soon started gracing fitness magazine covers.

He put a lot of effort into popularizing bodybuilding, previously considered freakish. After divorcing his wife, Mickey married the blonde sex symbol, Jayne Mansfield, and built an acting career.

The couple appeared together in several films, including “Primitive Love,” “Promises! Promises!” and “The Loves of Hercules.” However, their marriage ended in 1964.

Mickey continued acting, appearing in more films, including “Bloody Pit of Horror” and “Slaughter on Tenth Avenue.” Even though he changed his career to become a real estate investor and a constructor, his works inspired many.

Arnold Schwarzenegger considers him a role model as he paved the way for many bodybuilders after him. Schwarzenegger played him in the 1980 movie, “The Jayne Mansfield Story.” Mickey passed on in 2006.

JAYNE MANSFIELD

On the other hand, Jayne Mansfield started her film career with a supporting role in “Female Jungle” in 1955. She landed her first starring role in “The Girl Can’t Help It” a year later.

The actress worked her way up and had a wholesome Hollywood career, appearing in films such as “Too Hot To Handle,” “Illegal,” and “The Burglar.”

She had two children with Mickey, including Hargitay, but three years after their divorce, she met her untimely death through a car accident. Little Hargitay, only three at the time, was in the car that killed her mom.

THE TRAUMA THAT CHANGED HER LIFE

Experiencing such trauma at such an early age changed Hargitay’s life. The actress says that dealing with the loss has helped her appreciate life more.

Even though the trauma left her in a “frozen” place, Hargitay says she’s learned life’s most valuable lessons that way and to channel her pain in positive ways.

Charles Teared Up at William’s Inheritance Comment after Allegedly Feeling Left Out of His Son’s Life

For years, Prince Charles felt left out of his son, William’s life. But now, the father and son appear to be in a good place. Prince Charles proved it with his words after William’s comment about inheritance in 2021. Find out more.

Princess Diana was always a bit of a trailblazer and was never afraid to tread her own path, and it certainly was not any different when it came to the birth of her sons.

The late Princess of Wales opted to give birth to her first son, Prince William, at the Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington. It might not sound unusual, but before that, royal mothers welcomed their babies in Royal palaces.

However, Princess Anne gave birth to her two children in a hospital in 1977 and 1981, respectively. However, on June 21, 1982, Prince William became the first future monarch to be born in a maternity ward. His father, Prince Charles, witnessed the delivery.

Following Prince William’s birth, the monarch was introduced to the royal family members, and many of them had nice things to say. However, there was one comment made about the baby boy that some found surprising.

Queen Elizabeth’s comment when she finally met her grandson for the first time was not what anyone expected. The monarch said (via The News),

“Thank heavens he hasn’t ears like his father.”

While many may have considered the Queen’s words a joke, they appeared unflattering to Prince Charles, as he had been ridiculed for his ears for many years. Here are more details about Prince Charles, his parenthood, and his children’s lives.

INSIDE PRINCE CHARLES’ PARENTHOOD

Sometimes, people’s actions in their adult years are linked to their childhood experiences, which was not any different for Prince Charles.

In 2021, Tom Quinn, a royal author, revealed in “Charles & Harry: Father & Son Divided” that the Prince of Wales’ poor parenting decisions were tied to how he was treated as a child.

According to the author, Prince Charles never received any parenting from his parents, who were often away. Due to his parent’s absence, the young prince was left in the care of nannies in a Victorian Way.

So, when Prince Charles finally became a father, those experiences appeared to have played a massive role in his treatment of William and Harry.

Prince Charles often treated his children as young adults during their childhood. Royal experts also said he was a workaholic and did not take time off to spend with William and Harry.

However, when he did devote time to them, it was quality time. The royal brothers saw their father as “incredibly hardworking” and a regular dad.

In the documentary “When Ant and Dec Met The Prince: 40 Years of the Prince’s Trust,” William and Harry explained that Prince Charles would embarrass them in school by laughing at the wrong time.

According to the duo, things like special effects malfunctioning at a school play seemed amusing to their dad. Unfortunately, while William and Harry knew their father for being cheerful and making them laugh, the Prince of Wales would be the one to break the worst of news to them — the death of their mother.

WILLIAM/HARRY’S STRAINED RELATIONSHIP WITH CHARLES

Before Diana passed away in 1997, her marriage with Prince Charles collapsed due to the latter’s affair with Camilla Parker Bowles. It was heartbreaking for Harry and William and affected their initial perception of Parker Bowles.

So, Prince Charles remained sensitive about his children’s feelings regarding his new girlfriend and never brought her home until William and Harry asked to meet her.

Although the brothers finally accepted Parker Bowles, their relationship with their father had already been strained due to Prince Charles and Diana’s divorce.

The Prince of Wales allegedly believed that his ex-wife had poisoned William and Harry’s minds toward their father. Nevertheless, the father of two still kept in touch with his boys during their period of education.

WILLIAM AND THE MIDDLETON’S RELATIONSHIP

In 2011, William walked down the aisle with Kate Middleton, forming a solid bond between the Royal Family and the Middletons. According to Royal Author Katie Nicholl, The Queen openly accepted William’s parents-in-law.

It was not difficult for the Queen to do so as Nicholl revealed that William already had a great relationship with his parents-in-law right from him and Middleton’s dating years and insisted on the Royal Family treating them well.

To date, William still shares a great bond with his wife’s parents. Surprisingly their closeness has caused a bit of a problem between the Duke of Cambridge and his father in the past.

A Royal expert made it known that William’s close bond with his parents-in-law made Prince Charles feel left out of his son’s life. According to the expert, staff often overheard explosive rows between the father and son.

The rift became even more evident when William and his brother took part in an ITV documentary to mark the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death and left Prince Charles’ name out of the entire documentary. This left the Prince of Wales upset about his sons’ decision to write him entirely out of their history.

PRINCE CHARLES AND WILLIAMS’ CURRENT RELATIONSHIP

Recent times have seen William and Prince Charles mend their relationship. According to a report, the former has noticed similarities between him and his dad and believes that he is similar to Prince Charles in more ways than he would admit.

The father and son are becoming closer by the day. In 2021, Prince Charles proved he and William were in a good place when he commented on his son’s words about inheriting the Duchy.

The Duke of Cambridge had revealed that he had started thinking about how he would inherit the Duchy once his father became king. William said (via The Sun),

“I think it’s really important, about the family angle, I really do.”

The Duke of Cambridge also mentioned his thoughts of passing the estate to his kids when the time comes. Following William’s revelation, Prince Charles noted that he was touched. In his words (via The Sun),

“When I saw it, I couldn’t believe it — I was deeply touched and moved by what he said.”

Overall, the Prince of Wales is proud of William and the roles he has played and is playing in the area.

Fans Slam Kate for ‘Copying’ Meghan Who Was Once Harshly ‘Berated’ for Breaking the Same Dress Code Rule

The Royal family always has all eyes on them. Still, most recently, the eyes have been those of fashion police who are closely watching what Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have been wearing and how similar the outfits are.

While Meghan Markle was rebuked for the time that she was part of the royal family, Middleton seemed to be the person who everyone wished Markle would take advice and social cues from. However, it appears that Middleton has instead followed Markle’s lead.

As Kate moves out of her comfort zone, fans of the royal family and Meghan Markle have criticized Kate for acting and dressing in ways that got Meghan into trouble when she was a working member of the royal family.

On July 6, 2022, Kate and William participated in a very rare public display of affection at a polo match. The kiss and subsequent arms around one another’s waists were something that fans of the pair are not used to seeing.

While there is no royal protocol about how much affection a couple can show, Kate and William have always been relatively reserved in this aspect, while Harry and Meghan were always more affectionate in public, often holding hands.

Because Meghan and Harry were always the more affectionate couple, it left fans claiming that the only reason that Kate and William were affectionate in public was to mimic the relationship between Meghan and Harry.

In May 2022, Meghan and Harry were also seen at a polo match where Meghan wore a polka dot dress and a sun hat, similar to what Kate recently wore. At this match, Meghan and Harry shared a kiss.

Although Meghan covered their faces with her hand while she kissed her husband, it was obvious that the couple had shared a kiss. This public display of affection is to what the public compared Kate and William’s kiss.

KATE FLAUNTED HER BODY AT WIMBLEDON

At the Wimbledon Women’s final on Saturday, Kate sported a new look entirely as she flaunted her body, which she does not usually do. The canary yellow dress and sun hat are some items that Kate has not traditionally worn in the past.

The Duchess looked gorgeous, and while some people were enamored with her new style, some were less than impressed by her apparent readiness to display more of her body in her outfits.

Those people criticizing Kate are those that believe it is wrong that she is being celebrated for are the same sorts of outfits for which Meghan was chastised. Kate made headlines before this event too.

At Wimbledon, Kate wore a very similar dress to the one that Meghan wore when she kissed Harry at the polo match. The dress was black with white polka dots and more form-fitting than is usual for Kate.

Kate handed the trophy to the winner of the Wimbledon Men’s final, Novak Djokovic, and looked lovely as she did so but was once again criticized for trying to mimic Meghan’s style. However, there was no PDA between Kate and William this time as their son was seated between them.

The dress that the duchess wore to the women’s final was also reminiscent of a dress that Markle wore during a reception for young people from around the Commonwealth in London earlier this year.

Kate wore this outfit the day after she and Meghan coordinated their outfits at Wimbledon. While Meghan’s dress by designer Brandon Maxwell was sleeveless, Kate’s Dolce and Gabbana dress covered her shoulders, making it slightly more modest.

Although the dress style is something that Kate has not usually opted for before, the color is hardly surprising. All of Kate’s past looks have been relatively modest, but she has never shied away from wearing color. In fact, the first time William and Kate introduced their daughter, Princess Charlotte, to the world, she was wearing a white dress adorned with bright yellow flowers, and she has worn many other yellow ensembles in the past.

FANS SLAM KATE FOR COPYING MEGHAN AND BREAKING DRESS CODE

Although Kate’s new sense of style is a refreshing change from some of her more modest royal outfits, some people think that it is anything but charming for her to be seemingly copying the outfits that Meghan Markle has worn in the past.

Some fans believed that the treatment of all royal family members, whether working or not, should be the same and that the press should not influence the treatment that a royal receives in public.

Some fans thought it distasteful that Kate was wearing a hat to Wimbledon while Meghan was not allowed to. Some also believed that the only reason that Kate decided to wear a hat for the tennis match was to copy Meghan.

Meghan had worn one to the polo match where she kissed Harry. Another fan has dubbed the fiasco #StrawHatGate and mentioned that in 2018 Meghan was forbidden from wearing a hat to Wimbledon.

However, some fans had no problem with Kate wearing the hat but thought it did not go with her outfit and seemed out of place. One fan even wondered why the royal would have worn the hat in the first place, especially after Meghan had to carry hers in 2018.

Others fans believed that Kate had no style identity of her own as she had only ever copied Princess Diana and is now copying Meghan. Other fans noted that the royal protocols in the box at Wimbledon were not cast in stone and could be changed.

A Twitter user wondered whether or not the rules were only in place for Meghan because of her race. Many responded to the tweet in the affirmative, with one person saying that the only reason Kate gets away with everything that Meghan didn’t is that she has the press on her side.

Whether fans think it’s a good move or not, for many it is clear that Kate’s style is evolving, and she may have been influenced by her sister-in-law’s fashion sense.

Woman Demands Husband to Get His Stuff Out after Supporting Him for 23 Years — Story of the Day

A woman goes through a rude awakening in a cafe and decides to do something about it — the first thing to go was her husband, but did he deserve it?

Debra Skye was a 52-year-old woman who was very much young at heart. At her age, she did not recognize herself as an old woman — not that she had a lot of time to dwell on the subject since she had to work three jobs. This was to support her family as she was the breadwinner.

Her husband, Austin Skye, was a man who had slowly become a burden after he lost his job more than two decades ago.

At first, he sought a job with all his strength without luck, but after some time, he stopped searching. Austin had fallen in love with life as a dependent, and gradually, his hobby became lying on the couch in front of the TV, drinking beer and eating chips.

His body was the first thing to change, followed by everything else. He was well fed and clothed even though he was no longer working.

It was a dream come true for a man who was always lazy at heart. Everything was enough for him, thanks to Debra working different jobs, but he did not seem to notice how hard she was trying.

They had married when they were barely adults; Debra was 19 while he was 20, and they had been completely in love with one another.

That love was what Debra thought about as she continued to hope that Austin would once again start putting himself out there for work. She even remained his staunch supporter at times when their relatives ganged up to ridicule him.

They got married so early in their lives because she had gotten pregnant with their daughter, Kayla. Of course, there would have been consequences if they had not wed, but their love had made it a simple, even natural, decision.

Their daughter, like them, also got married early and gave birth to a child who would grow up without his father because the man divorced Kayla.

Left to fend for her child while not being able to go to work because of the minor child in her care, Kayla needed help, and Debra was who she asked for it.

A dependable mother, Debra chose to pitch in financially, giving Kayla a steady allowance to care for herself and her child.

Never once did the steady supply of money waver, and it made Kayla become complacent with findng her own source of income. She stopped trying to search for a suitable workplace and started depending solely on the allowance she was receiving.

It continued that way for a long time until one day, Debra was jolted to a painful realization. That day had been just like any other; the woman left her home early and stopped at Starbucks for her coffee.

Once in the cafe, she joined a line three-people-long and patiently stood waiting for her turn while keeping an eye on her watch.

“Gordon will eat me alive if I arrive late today,” she thought to herself.

Her boss knew how many jobs she worked and usually cut her some slack, but Debra knew she had been pushing her luck in recent days. As she impatiently tapped her feet, several teenagers brazenly walked into the cafe and cut in line just when it was her turn.

The cashier, a young man with a bored look on his face, said nothing and simply started responding to them. Debra couldn’t believe her eyes.

“Excuse me?” she said through gritted teeth. “Don’t you see me standing here? It was my turn!”

“I’m sorry ma’am, kids will be kids right?” the man behind the counter said, offering an awkward smile.

“What’s your deal anyway?” one of the teenagers said.

“Yeah, got somewhere you’re hurrying to?” another said in a mocking voice.

“Don’t think pensioners have anywhere they need to hurry to ma’am,” the third teenager said.

“You can stand in the queue all day if you want,” they chorused as they moved to the other end to collect their orders. Debra had never encountered such unruly children before, and it shocked her but not as much as what they said.

When she returned to her car, she took a long time staring at herself in the mirror. The woman she saw looked very tired. Many wrinkles had become evident on her face, and her dark hair was slowly giving way to grey. Debra couldn’t remember when the gray strands first appeared, and it reminded her of how much she had been neglecting herself.

“I can’t even recall the last time I was in a hair salon,” she thought in despair.

The thought made her wonder what she had been doing all that time, and an answer immediately emerged — slaving away.

It made her very upset and realize that all her life, all she had been doing was trying to please her family, at the expense of her own well-being. “This has to end,” she told herself.

The first thing Debra did was call her daughter to inform her of her decision.

“Hello mama, I was just going to call you,” Kayla said as soon as she picked up the call. “I was hoping you could send me my allowance earlier than Friday?”

“No Kayla, I will not do that,” Debra said, annoyed that her daughter had not even let her speak.

“What? Mama, why?” Kayla complained.

“Because you’ve grown too complacent with your lot in life. It’s time for you to wake up.”

“What are you saying mama?”

“I’m saying effective immediately your allowance is terminated and you’ll no longer be receiving it. If you want money, get out there and work for it.”

With that, Debra hung up and went in search of a beauty salon, where she had her hair dyed before getting a beautiful haircut, manicure, and many other procedures.

She turned her phone off to enjoy what had become a novel experience, and after that, she headed to a mall and got herself several beautiful dresses, one of which she decided to go home in. Her old clothes did not leave the mall with her.

Upon arriving home, her husband, who had picked up a call from her boss redirected to their landline, asked where she had been.

“Two of your bosses said you didn’t turn up for your shifts,” Austin said from his position on the couch. When he turned around to look at Debra, he coughed up the bite of chips he had just swallowed.

“Debs, is that you?” he asked wide-eyed.

“Yes, it is,” she replied stiffly.

“You went clothes shopping and all when you were supposed to be working?” he asked her angrily.

She gave him a vague answer but he started scolding her about how much money she wasted treating herself to all those nice things.

They were in the middle of that heated conversation when Kayla walked into the house with all the confidence of a righteous person done wrong. “Why would you cut my allowance off?” she asked without pausing to read the room.

After a moment, she took in her mom’s new look and pointed out how comfortable she was spending so much on herself while refusing to help her.

Debra had to take a moment to calm herself down before responding by explaining what had happened to her daughter. The girl was still trying to contain her shock when her mother turned to her father and revealed her desire to get divorced.

“I’m done cleaning up after you Austin,” she said. The man was shocked. He could not understand why she suddenly switched upon them, but Debra did not back down.

“For the past two decades, I have shouldered this family’s financial burdens. But now I’m tired and would like to focus that energy on myself,” Debra said tearfully. It was like admitting defeat, but what choice did she have? Those she was fighting for had given up a long time ago.

“I want you to leave,” she said.

“What? You can’t mean that,” Austin said.

“I do,” she said, then went past him to get to their room. After that night, Austin’s bruised pride caused him to move out of their home without trying to beg for forgiveness, and Kayla stopped asking Debra for money.

A month later, Debra quit her hard and disliked jobs and settled with one that really brought her passion. She lived her life, traveled the world, and when she could, helped her daughter to look after her grandson.

Debra never regretted her decision to divorce her husband even though he begged her to return after he found a job. “I will keep your offer in mind,” she’d told him, and he had not stopped trying to deserve her ever since.

What can we gain from this story?

Self-love is non-negotiable. Debra sacrificed for her family without thinking about herself until the rude kids pointed out just how much it was affecting her. Her awakening brought about change, and she was able to start living for herself once more.
Never stop trying. Kayla and Austin gave up so easily because they were getting all they needed through Debra, who never complained. They forgot that the only way to move forward was by trying, but luckily Debra was there to remind them.

Eric Roberts ‘Can’t Stand’ Being Away from Wife Who Thought He Was Gay When They Met on a Flight

Eric Robert is almost inseparable from his wife, Eliza Garrett. The pair have been together through some rocky times in their marriage and his sterling career, but there was a time when Garrett wouldn’t even be with Eric because she thought he was gay.

Eric Roberts had it good from the start of his Hollywood career that began in the 70s. The star’s first movie appearance was in “Runaway Train,” and it earned him three Golden Globe nominations.

There was no going back from here as Eric further appeared in more blockbusters like “King of the Gypsies,” and “Star 80.” Towards the peak of his career, Eric experienced a life-changing dip that threatened the foundation of all that he had built as a successful actor.

The star crumbled to the wiles of drug addiction, but a resounding jolt from his wife made the difference. Here’s a look through the troublesome years, the refreshing presence of his wife, and enduring marriage.

HOW ERIC ROBERTS MET THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE

Eric Roberts and Eliza Garrett met on a plane en route to Los Angeles from New York. The two had been seat partners, but that didn’t quite do the magic. In an interview with Lifestyle Magazine TV, the couple explained how they got to know each other.

Robert joked that his wife did not like sharing the story, but they had been reading movie scripts on the plane. The Hollywood veteran stated that he and Garrett closed the scripts simultaneously, creating a chasm for them to have a conversation.

Amid their brief discussion, the pair found out they had more in common. Eric also discovered that his favorite scriptwriter, David Rayfiel, was Eliza Garrett’s dad.

Garrett intercepted, stating that she “didn’t even want to talk shop,” but the past weekend had been a huge one for Eric due to his Oscar nomination. She added:

“So there were all these strange connections. . . . But I thought he was probably gay because he was very pretty and had a cat on his lap named Tender.”

Garrett gushed about her husband’s sex appeal and how it had thrown her off at first. She shared in the interview:

“He’s had the bad-boy image from age 19 to 59, and still the crush-worthiness of him spans generations and genders.”

Eric’s bad-boy image did not deter Garrett from building a beautiful relationship with him. Six years after their “love at first script” introduction, the Hollywood stars tied the knot. Eric and Garrett were married on August 11, 1992.

GARRETT STOOD BY HIM IN THE DARK TIMES

Eliza Garrett is Hollywood royalty by virtue of her movie executive dad. The star herself grew up to own a career in the industry. She is a casting director and actress known for movies including “Tasmanian Devil,” “Dr. Who: The Movie,” and “National Lampoon’s Animal House.”

Garrett, who was previously married to James Simons, has been a supportive wife to Eric Roberts since their wedding 30 years ago. She was also by his side when he witnessed a rather bleak period in his career.

Eric got to a point where he became addicted to drugs. He explained to Vanity Fair that drug use was rampant on the set of movies, and he sunk deep into the clutches.

The effects started telling on his career, and Eric became a “pothead.” Garrett watched her husband slip away, but she jolted him to reality when she asked him to choose between her and “coke.”

The drug use eventually reached a breaking point when Eric totaled his car in an accident. The star was in a coma, and his speech and walking were terribly affected when he came around.

It took two months for Eric to become himself again, and all the while, Garrett did not leave his side. Despite picking himself up, Eric’s career took the fall. He stopped receiving casting calls and had to rely on B movies.

With his wife’s encouragement and unwavering support, the “Best of the Best” actor starred in several movies numbering up to 70 films. However, Eric became the butt of the joke due to his decline to B movies.

This was a difficult period in his career, but Garrett encouraged him. With her words, Eric continued working as he soon rounded up 250 movies. This consistency turned him from a joke into an actor that could excel at any role.

INSIDE THEIR ENDURING MARRIAGE

It’s been three decades and counting for the couple in their enduring marriage, and Eric still feels the same way he felt from the very first day. Once in an interview with Closer Weekly, the star shared how inseparable they were. He explained:

“I was on a trip for only three days and I thought, ‘God, I hate being away from her!’ I can’t stand it, because I got old with her, this is my roommate, my pal, my confidante, my manager, the girl I kiss.”

Speaking about the secret to the union, Eric mentioned honesty and great sex life. In another interview, Garrett attributed their great marriage to good communication and the fact she and Eric worked together.

ERIC AND GARRETT RUN A BLENDED FAMILY

Eric and Garrett do not have kids together, but the pair are parents from older relationships. Eric is dad to Hollywood star Emma Roberts whom he had in his relationship with Kelly Cummingham.

Emma grew up with her mother but had a close-knit relationship with her father’s family. She would often go on movie sets with her aunt, Julia Roberts, and that’s how she nurtured her acting career.

Garrett’s marriage to James made her a mother to two kids, Keaton and Morgan Simmons. According to his Instagram bio, Keaton is a musician and the lead guitarist for Brett Young Music.

Keaton also works as a producer and film composer. His sister, Morgan, is a culinary expert who owns a bakeshop called Pi Bakeshop. According to the website, Morgan completed her culinary education and established a catering company.

The blended family of Eric and Garrett also includes the love and influence of aunt Julia. Eric himself loves and believes that Garrett’s kids are his. He once attested:

“They’re both such Robertses. You know?”

The doting stepdad fawned over Morgan and Keaton as he promoted their business and music career. He displayed his fondness, noting that he loved how much they looked alike.

Eric and Garrett have come a long way as a couple in the spotlight. With 30 years of marriage between them, the couple has realized how being each other’s partner was invaluable.
