Katie Hopkins: ROASTED on Twitter After Dissing Meghan Markle!

Fans all over the world watched Prince Harry and Meghan Markle exchange vows.

But after the Royal Wedding came the Royal Wedding dress debate — with fans wondering who wore it better.

Political hack Katie Hopkins weighed in, saying that it was no contest … because Duchess Kate had, in her opinion, a degree of "class" that Duchess Meghan does not possess.

That's not a suprising comment from Katie, given that MegMar is biracial and Katie seems to spend a great deal of her waking hours focused on an apparent hatred for brown people.

Naturally, Twitter enjoyed ridiculing Katie Hopkins for her comments, and made something of a meme out of pointing out that Katie looks terrible for her age.

Now, there's a big of moral complication any time that you insult someone's appearance.

Ridicule Trump for his appearance instead of his words and deeds, and an innocent Jersey Shore denizen might feel self-conscious for being orange.

But we think that some of these epic burns are worth reading.

And Katie Hopkins, of all people, truly deserves to be roasted. Check out the tweets below and you'll see that for yourself.

1. Katie Hopkins cannot resist stirring the pot

Katie hopkins twitter shaming 01
She’s awful every day of the week, but we wonder if she wishes that she’d taken the Royal Wedding off

1. Meghan Markle looked gorgeous

We know that beauty is “subjective” or whatever, but she is stunningly beautiful, and she looked absolutely stunning for the Royal Wedding. Except, apparently, to Katie Hopkins …

2. The tweet replies began …

Katie hopkins twitter shaming 02 43 going on
As you’re about to be made very well aware, Katie Hopkins does not look like your average 43-year-old.

3. It really WAS a fairytale wedding

Katie hopkins twitter shaming 03 apple
Honestly, this comparison is very unfair to the Evil Queen.

4. Here’s one possible explanation

Katie hopkins twitter shaming 04 roald
Like we said, shaming a person’s appearance is complicated, even when they’re a despicable human being. But some really do believe that being bigoted and hateful ages a person.

5. She’s compared to Gabrielle Union

Katie hopkins twitter shaming 05 gabrielle union
Gabrielle really is 45 years old. Katie Hopkins is 43.

Katie Couric: Matt Lauer ‘Ass Pinching’ Remark Was a Joke

Clearing the air. While appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Tuesday, May 1, Katie Couric clarified a remark she made where she claimed Matt Lauer’s most annoying habit was pinching her “on the ass a lot.”

The Today anchor, 61, was asked by Cohen about a previous 2012 appearance on the late-night show — where she and the Bravo host played a game called “Plead the Fifth” — which went viral the day sexual misconduct allegations against Lauer made headlines in November 2017.

“I was joking! I was joking! It was a total joke! In fact, when that started circulating, Andy, I was like, ‘Oh my god, I was on Watch What Happens Live.’ It was so antithetical to the nature of our relationship,” the legendary journalist explained. “I thought it would be funny because it was so weird.”

“It was totally a joke, it was totally a joke, but I was really sorry I had made that joke,” Couric continued. “Because people misconstrued it.”

Lauer was fired from NBC after he was accused of sexual misconduct by a coworker in November 2017. Shortly afterward, a production assistant claimed to have had an affair with the former Dateline ABC anchor while he was married.

Most recently, Ann Curry told the Washington Post that she had reported Lauer to NBC management after a female employee complained she was “sexually harassed physically” by him in 2012. Lauer broke his silence by releasing a statement on April 27 that read, “I fully acknowledge that I acted inappropriately as a husband, father and principal at NBC. However I want to make it perfectly clear that any allegations or reports of coercive, aggressive or abusive actions on my part, at any time, are absolutely false.”

Couric — who cohosted the Today show with Lauer for nine years — told Wendy Williams on Tuesday, May 1 that the scandal surrounding the disgraced news anchor has been “a very painful time for a lot of people who worked with Matt, knew him, really care about him and who never witnessed — or experienced — any of this behavior that’s obviously being talked about.”

PICS: Katie Holmes, Jamie Foxx Step Out Separately After Dinner Date

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx enjoyed yet another low-key night out together. The pair were spotted leaving from separate exits after having dinner at Nobu in New York City on Monday, April 23.

The Dawson’s Creek alum, 39, and the Beat Shazam host, 50, met up for a private date at the restaurant after she attended Chanel’s 13th annual Artists Dinner during the Tribeca Film Festival. She kept it casual in a purple floral kimono over a white top, skinny jeans and boots, completing the look with a black floppy hat. Foxx wore a red bomber jacket with a black T-shirt, dark jeans and Timberland boots.

Holmes and Foxx have been quietly seeing each other for about four and a half years. Us Weekly was first to break the news in 2015, two years after the romance began at a fundraiser in East Hampton, New York. Though neither of them have commented on the status of their relationship, the duo went public in September, when they were seen holding hands on a beach in Malibu.

“Everyone knows they’re together, but it’s still unspoken,” a source told Us exclusively at the time. “He could often be overheard talking flirtatiously to someone on the phone and excited to wrap up work and go home. It’s been obvious that he’s had someone special in his life for a long time.”

The Ocean’s 8 star and the Ray actor have since stepped out together on several occasions. They attended Clive Davispre-Grammy party in January, and celebrated Valentine’s Day with a game of basketball in Los Angeles the following month.

“Their relationship works because of the love, compassion, trust and support they have for each other,” a source close to Holmes told Us exclusively in March. “They confide in and rely on each other pretty heavily. They’re definitely very serious.

Holmes shares daughter Suri, 12, with her ex-husband, Tom Cruise, to whom she was married from 2006 to 2012. Meanwhile, Foxx is the father of daughters Corinne, 24, and Annalise, 9, from previous relationships.

Katie Couric: I Hope That Matt Lauer Has Learned His Lesson

Disgraced television host Matt Lauer has been fired for sexual harassment and Today Show ratings are higher than they’ve been in years.

Now, months later, Katie Couric is speaking out about Lauer and what it was like to work with him and how she insulated herself against harassment.

She also speaks about what she hopes for Matt Lauer’s present and future.

While speaking at TheWrap’s Power Women Breakfast at SXSW, Katie Couric discussed the #MeToo movement and what it’s been like as a woman in her position to experience that for these past months.

And, very naturally, she also speaks about her fallen former colleague, Matt Lauer.

First, she acknowledges that she’s been immersed in this perilous world since long before the #MeToo movement came about.

“I certainly dealt with sexist environments and environments that marginalized and didn’t give women their due, and didn’t treat women as intellectual equals.”

Katie says, however, that the accusations against Matt Lauer and ensuing scandal were much more personal.

“But it’s hit very close to home with Matt Lauer and what happened there.”

Katie elaborated about how listening to #MeToo stories has been illuminating for her.

“It’s been an important experience for me because I never faced this kind of treatment.”

A lot of people — men and women — are discovering for the first time just how perilous the world can be.

Katie knows why predatory men were wary of her.

“I was one of the lucky ones — I think I am harassable and I’m not harassable in that sense, and I think it is because I was in a position of power early in my career.”

To be clear, she’s not saying that there’s something special about her demeanor that makes people unwilling to harass her. Women who are targeted for harassment do not “invite” it.

Rather, she’s saying that securing a position of power as early as she did made men like Matt Lauer treat her as a colleague rather than as a potential target.

Here comes what’s probably her most controversial line.

Katie Couric speaks about what she hopes that Matt Lauer is up to now.

“I hope he’s trying to figure out and understand his behavior and why he did it and why it was so wrong.”

So she hopes that he learned his lesson. Does she imagine that Matt Lauer might have a career after this?

Even in this context, she can’t help but sound like she’s singing his praises.

“We had a wonderful working relationship.”

Perhaps she’s trying to speak of how 

She says that she’s still reeling from the revelations about Matt Lauer.

“It’s shocking, honestly, and disturbing, disorienting, disheartening — all of those d-words.”

She points out that there are others, probably countless men who are still employed, who are predatory wolves in sheep’s clothing.

“But I think, he’s not the only one who behaves in this way …”

That has been made abundantly clear since the autumn of 2017.

“Cultures have existed in the media, and in every arena, where behaviors were tolerated, people looked the other way, it was an accepted way of doing business.”

She says that, regrettably, most people looked the other way.

“I don’t think people paid much attention to it.”

Some accuse Katie Couric of hypocrisy.

She took part in a secret roast of Matt Lauer back in 2008. The content of that roast was said to have mentioned his alleged sexual exploits.

But there’s a difference between someone cheating on his wife (obviously, Annette Roque has finally filed for divorce) and someone preying upon colleagues who don’t feel like they can say no.

And then there was the woman who accused him of locking her in his office, bending her over, and sexually assaulting her — and of only stopping and unlocking the door when she passed out.

It’s probably safe to say that most colleagues who didn’t know the truth chalked up rumors about him as exaggerations and didn’t realize how sinister their colleague’s alleged activities really were.

Jamie Foxx Gets Asked Katie Holmes, Responds Like THIS

Jamie Foxx seems like a fun-loving guy.

And he and Katie Holmes seem like one of the more stable couples in Hollywood.

But this doesn't mean Jamie Foxx actually wants to discuss Katie Holmes in public.

The Academy Award nominee made that clear on Friday night during an interview with ESPN's Michael Smith.

Talking to the network prior to a celebrity basketball game, Foxx was asked the following question by Smith, who referenced a rumor about an activity in which he and Holmes recently engaged:

“I know you prepared because I saw pictures. Did you and Katie Holmes play basketball for Valentine’s Day? Like some real Love and Basketball?”

Pretty innocent, right?

It's not as though Foxx was asked whether Holmes was pregnant with his baby.

But it wasn't innocent enough for the actor.

You can see him squirm and smirk in the following video, clearly uncomfortable with the inquiry and unsure how to respond.

And then he figured out that he had no interest in responding.

Foxx calmly got up, received some help taking his microphone off and slowly walked away.

He didn't cause a major scene, he just decided he had enough of the interview once it got remotely personal. 

Foxx and Holmes have been together for about five years. This is a very serious romance,.

But it's also one of the most private ones in all of entertainment, which may be why it works for them and may be why Foxx didn't want to discuss it.

About that basketball rumor, though?

About how they were seen on a court in Calabasas?

“They were really happy,” an onlooker told Us Weekly of their Valentine's Day date, adding:

“Katie was dancing as they walked in and Jamie was laughing. They seem really at ease and truly enjoying each other.”

We'll just need to take this person's word for it.

Jamie Foxx Walks Off Interview After Being Asked About Katie Holmes 

Jamie Foxx does not want to talk about Katie Holmes — or playing basketball with her. The actor walked off SportsCenter after the interviewer asked him about his longtime girlfriend. 

“I know you prepared because I saw pictures. Did you and Katie Holmes play basketball for Valentine’s Day? Like some real Love and Basketball?” ESPN’s Michael Smith asked Foxx live on SportsCenter Friday, February 16, according to the broadcast obtained by TMZ.

The musician, 50, smirked and immediately took off his headset. He then got up, took his mic off and walked away from the camera, toward the court. (Foxx is set to play in the 2018 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Friday.)

As previously reported, Foxx and the Dawson’s Creek alum, 39, did indeed play basketball on Wednesday, February 14. The pair, who have been quietly dating for nearly five years, were seen at a basketball court in Calabasas on the holiday. 

“They were really happy,” an eyewitness told Us Weekly of their date. “Katie was dancing as they walked in and Jamie was laughing. They seem really at ease and truly enjoying each other.”

While the discrete duo have never publicly commented on their relationship, Us broke the news in 2013 that they were dating. Foxx and Holmes were not spotted together in public until September 2017 when they were seen holding hands on a beach in Malibu. 

“They’d both been in public relationships before,” a Foxx pal told Us in January. “They care about each other a lot and they tried to stay as quiet as possible because they didn’t want to ruin that.”

Holmes was previously married to Tom Cruise, with whom she shares 11-year-old daughter Suri, from 2006 to 2012. Foxx, for his part, has never been married, but has two daughters, Corinne, 23, and Annalise, 7, from previous relationships.

Katie Couric Finally Speaks Publicly On Matt Lauer’s Firing

Well here we go…

Katie Couric has finally come out to speak publicly on Matt Lauer‘s firing from NBC.

Related: It Took Katie Couric A While To Break Her Silence

Lauer’s longtime co-host on the Today show spoke to People, saying (below):

“The whole thing has been very painful for me. The accounts I’ve read and heard have been disturbing, distressing and disorienting and it’s completely unacceptable that any woman at the Today show experienced this kind of treatment. I had no idea this was going on during my tenure or after I left. I think I speak for many of my former colleagues when I say this was not the Matt we knew. Matt was a kind and generous colleague who treated me with respect. In fact, a joke I once made on late-night television was just that, because it was completely contrary to our brother-sister relationship. It’s still very upsetting. I really admire the way Savannah [Guthrie] and Hoda [Kotb] and the entire Today show staff have handled a very difficult situation.”

Wow.

Thoughts????

Sounds like Katie was just as surprised as the rest of us, even though she worked together with him every day for years.

You buying it?

Jamie Foxx & Katie Holmes Have ‘Definitely Become More Serious,’ But The Actress Will Choose Daughter Suri ‘Over Him Any Day’!

Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes are still going strong, but they’re doing things their own way.

As we previously reported, in early December, the Oscar winner threw a star-studded 50th birthday bash at Paramount Studios in El Lay. As Miz Holmes is allegedly Jamie’s girlfriend of four years, it’s no wonder the Dawson’s Creek alum was in attendance.

Related: Katie Holmes Supports Jamie Foxx At Store Opening!

However, since the love birds have tried to keep their romance under the radar for YEARS, it’s surprising to learn that the pair “were all over each other” at the party. One insider dished to Us Weekly:

“Katie was really letting loose and dancing — they were even kissing each other!”

Looks like Katie and Jamie aren’t hiding their love anymore. Another tipster confirmed this to be true, as they added:

“They’re starting to be more comfortable about their relationship.”

Awwwww. While the duo are slowly (but surely) coming out of hiding, don’t expect them to walk any red carpets together in the near future. A confidant close Foxx shared:

“They’d both been in public relationships before. They care about each other a lot and they tried to stay as quiet as possible because they didn’t want to ruin that… Jamie brings a lot of joy and happiness into her life.”

Fair enough. Not to mention, Katie has daughter Suri Cruise to think about. Even though Jamie and Katie have “definitely become more serious,” the industry vet will always put her child first.

This would explain why Katie chose to spend New Year’s Eve in Park City, UT with Suri, instead of in Singapore, where Jamie was spinning at the opening of the Lavo nightclub. A Katie pal spilled:

“She’s an amazing mom. She’ll choose her family over him any day… When they’re together it works. When they’re not, they’re on their own. It’s what works for them.”

That sounds like a really healthy companionship decision, especially after her high-profile divorce from Tom Cruise and his controversial faith of choice (*cough* Church of Scientology *cough*). The Katie chum concluded:

“Katie found happiness with Katie first. She’s worked her ass off since the divorce and she’s finally gotten to a place where she’s made a name for herself and can be her own person. She’s back to her old self and it’s great to watch.”

WE LOVE HEARING THIS. Do what’s best for you, girl!!

But, when you’re ready to spill, know we’re sitting here with ears ready for listening.

Katie Cassidy Pays Tribute to Dad David, Reveals His Last Words

Katie Cassidy paid tribute to her late father, David Cassidy, with a heartbreaking post on Friday, November 24, that revealed his last words to her.

The Arrow actress, 30, who reportedly had a turbulent relationship with her former pop idol dad, took to Twitter to thank fans for their outpouring of support.

“Words cant express the solace our family’s received from all the love & support during this trying time,” she wrote. “My father’s last words were ‘So much wasted time’. This will be a daily reminder for me to share my gratitude with those I love as to never waste another minute….thank you.”

As previously reported, the former Partridge Family star died on Tuesday, November 21, a few days after being admitted to a Florida hospital with organ failure. He was 67 and had recently been diagnosed with dementia after struggling with substance abuse issues for decades.

Katie didn’t have a very close relationship with the singer and actor as she was raised by her mom, Sherry Williams, and stepdad, Richard Benedon, but he still played a role in her life, offering sound advice when she decided to follow in her famous family’s footsteps.

“We didn’t really talk about the business,” Kate told the Daily Mail in 2013, “but he did say, ‘Don’t take a job for the money.’ Of course, I did in the beginning because I needed to survive! But he also said, ‘Don’t do it for fame and if there’s a role you love and they’re not going to pay you for it, take it.’ I definitely agreed with his advice.”

David, who was the son of Broadway and film star Jack Cassidy and actress Evelyn Ward, got his big break in the ’70s musical sitcom alongside real-life stepmom Shirley Jones, and later co-starred in stage and TV projects with half-brothers Shaun and Patrick Cassidy.

Jones, 83, paid tribute to him in a Facebook post on Wednesday, November 22. “Long before he played my son on The Partridge Family, David Cassidy was my stepson in real life,” she wrote. “As a little boy, his sweet sensitivity and wicked sense of humor were already on display, and I will treasure the years we spent working and growing together. I will also find solace knowing that David is now with his dad.”

Long before he played my son on “The Partridge Family,” David Cassidy was my stepson in real life. As a little boy, his…

“My heart is with David’s daughter, Katie, his son, Beau, and with Shaun, Patrick, and Ryan, whom I know are deeply missing their brother today,” she continued. “Thank you for the enormous outpouring of affection you have offered our family at this difficult time.”

Shaun, 59, who had a pop star career of his own in the late ’70s and ’80s before moving into acting and TV production, paid homage on Facebook on Thursday, November 23.

When I was little and my big brother would come to visit, the first call of business would be a punishing pillow fight….

Posted by Shaun Cassidy on Wednesday, November 22, 2017

“When I was little and my big brother would come to visit, the first call of business would be a punishing pillow fight. During the battle, he would regale me with hysterical stories of our father, often culminating in his taking a giant leap off my top bunk. I tried to catch him of course. I always tried to catch him. But I never could,” he wrote alongside a picture of the pair of them as kids. “Now, I will carry him, along with all of the funny/sad/extraordinary days we shared, none more filled with love than these last few at his side.”
