While everyone was busy watching real life Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tie the knot yesterday, Netflix blessed us with the most important Royal news…. We’re getting a sequel to last year's bizarre cult classic, A Christmas Prince!
We watched the Lifetime Original Movie, Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance the only way you can... with a big ol' bottle of wine.

Yes, please. Here's why we NEED this to happen: goo.gl/RvqoSG
The moment we’ve all been waiting for finally arrived on Vanderpump Rules. We learned the identity of Lala Kent’s mysterious man.
The secret of Lala’s beau has been a plot point for almost as long as we’ve seen her on the show. Through insinuations of prostitution to being a homewrecker, Lala held strong in keeping his information a closely guarded enigma.
After part 1 of the reunion, I’m out of sympathy or empathy or quite frankly f*cks to give for Brittany, the last remaining “relatable” cast member of Vanderpump Rules.
It’s generally agreed upon that Brittany Cartwright is the only decent human being (if we could even call the others human beings) of the SUR/Pump crew. To the best of anyone’s knowledge, she’s never cheated, lied, or stolen while she was on the show. She comes across as a generally polite and sweet person.
To quote the great bard, Marshall Mathers: “You only get one shot, one opportunity.”
When he wrote those words I don’t know if he realized they’d become (at least for me) a personal anthem that haunts me constantly. Any time I’m forced to listen to or watch or edit (which is surprisingly often in this digital age) an opportunity when I feel I could have represented myself better, those bitter lyrics float into my head.
So what happens when you layer onto that feeling a responsibility to represent an entire race or gender? And you feel you botched it up?
