Meghan Markle Shares Story of Her Miscarriage, Hoping to Break Culture of Silence

The Duchess of Sussex has revealed that she had a miscarriage in July, giving a personal account of the traumatic experience in hope of helping others.

Meghan described the miscarriage in an opinion piece in the New York Times on Wednesday. She wrote: “I knew, as I clutched my firstborn child, that I was losing my second.” The former Meghan Markle and husband Prince Harry have an 18-month-old son, Archie.

The duchess, 39, said she was sharing her story to help break the silence around an all-too-common tragedy. “Losing a child means carrying an almost unbearable grief, experienced by many but talked about by few,” she wrote. “In being invited to share our pain, together we take the first steps toward healing.”

In a startlingly intimate account of her experience, the duchess described how tragedy struck on a “morning that began as ordinarily as any other day: Make breakfast. Feed the dogs. Take vitamins. Find that missing sock. Pick up the rogue crayon that rolled under the table. Throw my hair in a ponytail before getting my son from his crib.

“After changing his diaper, I felt a sharp cramp. I dropped to the floor with him in my arms, humming a lullaby to keep us both calm, the cheerful tune a stark contrast to my sense that something was not right.”

Later, she said, she “lay in a hospital bed, holding my husband’s hand. I felt the clamminess of his palm and kissed his knuckles, wet from both our tears. Staring at the cold white walls, my eyes glazed over. I tried to imagine how we’d heal.”

Meghan, an American actress and star of TV legal drama “Suits,” married Harry, a grandson of Queen Elizabeth II, in a lavish ceremony at Windsor Castle in May 2018. Their son was born the following year.

Early this year, the couple announced they were quitting royal duties and moving to North America, citing what they said was the unbearable intrusions and racist attitudes of the British media. They recently bought a house in Santa Barbara, California.

Mike Sorrentino and Lauren Pesce: Expecting First Baby! EVER!

sitch baby

We’ve got a developing Situation, folks.

And we mean that almost literally.

On Tuesday afternoon, Mike Sorrentino and wife Lauren Pesce confirmed on social media that they’re very first baby is on the way.

And they did so in precious fashion, sharing photos of themselves and their beloved dog Mosey in their kitchen with “Baby Sorrentino May 2021” written in flour across their kitchen island.

“We have a Baby Situation,” Sorrentino wrote on Twitter and Instagram.

“Our biggest blessing is on it’s way,” his pregnant wife added.

Sorrentino and Pesce are college sweethearts.

They got married in November 2018, just ahead of the 38-year-old Jersey Shore star’s eight-month prison sentence for tax evasion.

He was released in September 2019, mere months before the couple announced that Lauren had suffered a “heart-wrenching” miscarriage.

“The night he came home [from prison] we actually conceived,” Lauren revealed during a year-old appearance on Strahan, Sara & Keke.

She continued, bravely, at the time:

“And then at about six and half, seven weeks, I miscarried. It was heart-wrenching.

“When I found out we were pregnant, I felt like this is why we went through all these challenges for years and that this was our time and it was our blessing…

“It was hard. It was really difficult.”

With this rainbow baby on the way, perhaps that life-altering blow can be softened just a little bit.

Most recently on the November 19 season premiere of Jersey Shore, Mike and Lauren met with doctors to discuss expanding their immediate family.

“We are both one of four kids, so I think we definitely think the more the merrier, but it gets expensive!” Lauren previously told People Magazine, trying to remain upbeat.

“So we’ll have to see.”

And now they have — and it’s just so exciting!

It didn’t take long for Mike’s friends from MTV to share their best wishes for the couple online, either.

“So excited for you both! Love you guys so much,” Deena Cortese, who is also pregnant, wrote on The Situation’s Instagram page.

“Soooo excited for you guys!!! You deserve all the happiness in the world ! Pregnancy buddies,” she then told Pesce.

Added Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi wrote:

“LOVE YOU BOT sooo sooo excited for you! Sooo happy for you my mawma! Always here for you! Call me when your nipples grow the size of a small plate.”

“OH My GODDDDD I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!” Jenni “JWoww” Farley wrote.

Pauly “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio told his longtime costar, “Now that’s a situation my dude!!!!” while …read more

Khloe Kardashian to Tristan Thompson: Have Fun in Boston! I’m Staying Here!

Khloe and Tristan at Kim's Birthday

The trouble with dating basketball players is that you’re suddenly playing second fiddle to their sports careers.

Tristan Thompson is bound for Boston. But Khloe isn’t following him there, and neither is True.

Tristan has signed up with a sports team known as the Boston Celtics.

(A little research tells us that the team name is misprounced as “Seltics” because, when the team gained name recognition, most people didn’t know better yet)

However, it sounds like this hefty and profitable contract for Tristan is going to mean a major paradigm shift for his personal life.

The trouble with the Boston Celtics, aside from pronunciation issues, is that they are located in Boston.

(Worth noting that the historic rivalry between Boston and Los Angeles may be at play here)

Tristan’s 2-year contract will earn him $19 million … but it will mean that he will have to trade West Coast desert for the East Coast.

TMZ is consistently a solid source when it comes to inside information on the Kardashians.

Their sources say that Khloe will not be uprooting her life in Los Angeles to move with Tristan.

They also say that she won’t be turning True’s world upside down, either.

That said, Khloe does plan to make any number of extended visits to Boston.

When she does, the primary purpose will be to bring her two-year-old sweetheart to see her father.

This will be when Khloe’s schedule and Tristan’s align.

Los Angeles will remain True and Khloe’s home, however.

Insiders dish that True has her routines and habits. She lives near family and particularly her precious cousins.

Neither Khloe nor Tristan want to rob True of that, particularly during these vital stages of early development.

Instead of toppling True’s developing sense of order, they are planning on making all of this work long-distance.

That can be a tricky prospect for any parents, as many families have discovered over the years.

However, factors such as Khloe and Tristan’s tremendous wealth will make it a lot easier.

We all remember the time when Khloe seemed determined to reside in Cleveland, long term, when Tristan was with the Cavaliers.

Khloe even ended up giving birth in Cleveland … going into labor just one day after Tristan’s (first) major cheating scandal blew wide open.

In light of that, however, she did wisely change her mind (eventually) and move back to Calabasas to be around people who actually respect her.

Tristan of course eventually …read more

Tracie Wagaman: Notorious Love After Lockup Star Boasts About Banging Matt Baier!

Clint and Tracie

If you’re a fan of Love After Lockup, the mere mention of the names Clint and Tracie might be enough to send shivers up your spine.

On a show that’s loaded with deservedly infamous couples, Clint and Tracie are among the most notorious.

Crack, domestic abuse, infidelity, more crack … you name it, and Clint and Tracie snorted it, smoked it, and got arrested for it.

These two would be the wildest, trashiest couple on all of reality television — were it not for the existence of Jenelle Evans and David Eason.

But believe it or not, it’s a different couple that brought the worlds of Teen Mom and Love After Lockup together.

(Actually, this is the second time these two dumpster fires combined into one massive conflagration, thanks to Javi Marroquin’s affair with Lacey Whitlow, but that’s a conversation for another time!)

As she revealed on Instagram this week, Tracie recently had a brief fling with Matt Baier.

“I have taken a little social media break but I want to confirm some things,” she wrote, as first reported by The Ashley’s Reality Roundup. 

“The secret is out- I was seeing Matt Baier from ‘Teen Mom,’ earlier this year. This picture is cropped so closely bc it is not IG appropriate. We were seeing each other…”

Tracie went on to reveal that the news was first leaked by a stalker of hers whose name is Magical Missy, because of course it is.

“We were seeing each other, but I never confided in ‘Magical Missy’ about the nature of our relationship,” she wrote.

“’Magical Missy’ is a liar and quite frankly a stalker- a fan I met once, politely hung out with she and her husband, and that was it.”

Tracie revealed that MM has been in contact with Clint, to whom she is still married, but currently separated.

She talked to my husband, wherever he may be, and told him lies,” she wrote in her lengthy Instagram rant.

In the comments section, Tracie revealed that she and Matt are still on good terms.

“I want to emphasize I posted this bc this is now public knowledge and I am in no way speaking ill of Matt. I wish him the very best,” she wrote.

“This post is not intended to trash him.”

The pic seems to be all the confirmation we need that Tracie and Matt at least slept together, but just so everyone’s on the same page, Matt also took to …read more
