Meghan Markle's Mom, Doria Ragland, Will Not Spend Christmas With the Royals
As the holiday season approaches and we are nailing down our travel plans, so too are members of the British royal family. Their Christmas schedule stays pretty much the same year after year - signing cards in the Summer, taking the royal train to Sandringham, and a black-tie dinner and drinks on Christmas Eve. While Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be front and center for the festivities, it seems her mother, Doria Ragland, will not be by her side.

Despite previous reports that Queen Elizabeth II had extended an invitation to Meghan Markle's mom, "as a mark of her respect" for Meghan, Us Weekly confirms that Doria will not be spending Christmas with the royals. "She is of course welcome at Sandringham," a source told the publication. "But wasn't formally invited for this Christmas."

Still, all three of them seemed to enjoy the game. Sophie rocked a Knicks T-shirt to show her team spirit...

Aguilera's fiancé, Matthew Rutler, shared a trio of photos on Instagram Stories overnight, including one that showed her seemingly simulating oral sex as he tipped his black cowboy hat. Rutler, dressed in a Grinch onesie, didn't add a caption, instead choosing to include a kiss emoji. (The diva's risqué photo isn't that shocking, given her line of cheeky holiday merchandise.)

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Christmas Card Is So Damn Glamorous, It Hurts
It's official: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have given us the best Christmas present we could have asked for. Sure, it might have been months since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex tied the knot, but we're still not over the gorgeous ceremony, and we always love learning new details about Harry and Meghan's big day. So when Kensington Palace shared a new photo of their wedding reception, I might have squealed a little bit.

On Dec. 14, the palace released an incredibly glamorous black-and-white snap of the duke and duchess cuddling up in the gardens of Frogmore House, looking at fireworks going off in the distance. The photograph, taken by Chris Allerton, will feature on Harry and Meghan's Christmas card, and the only question I have is: where can I get one?

Holiday Wishes, Public Apologies and an Abundance of Roses: Offset's Bizarre Campaign to Win Back Cardi B
Subtly doesn't suit Offset. If the Atlanta-based rapper, one-third of trap music's reigning trio Migos, is going to make a gesture, it's going to be grand.  When Cardi B's requested a real proposal following their spontaneous, at-home wedding last fall, he didn't just acquiesce. He whipped out an eight-carat custom teardrop-shaped rock mid-set at Power 99's Powerhouse in Philadelphia, dropping to one knee as nearly 20,000 fans reached for their cell phones.  So when it came time to win the hip-hop queen back, little more than a year later, well, he was going big again.

What Princess Diana Discovered: The Uncomfortable Truth About Joining the Royal Family

What Princess Diana Discovered: The Uncomfortable Truth About Joining the Royal Family
In normal circumstances we would say that Meghan Markle shouldn't pay one whit of attention to what anybody thinks about her, that obviously the only opinion of herself that matters is her own.  Yeah, that's simply not the case here. While Prince Harry obviously loves Meghan for Meghan, and presumably she's accepted that it will be impossible to please everybody no matter what she does and that she's only fooling herself if she thinks she can get the better of the British tabloids, there is an opinion that has mattered since before she said her I-dos, was given a title and officially became a member of the royal family. We're talking, of course, about the opinion...
