The Royals
No matter how ridiculous, insane and utterly unbelievable E's new drama, 'The Royals' is, it's still dirty sexy fun.

'The Royals' follows the fictional Henstridge monarchy led by Queen Helena (Elizabeth Hurley) and the heir apparent, Prince Liam (William Moseley). You might know William better as King Peter in Disney's 'The Lion, Witch and The Wardrobe.'

'The Royals' is an unabashed, oversexed mash-up of the contemporary British royal family with American celeb life thrown in. If you watched FOX's now-cancelled 'I want to Marry Harry,' and hoped/thought it was real, then this is for you.

Duchess Kate Reveals Baby Due Date Details -- When Is It?
Have you been obsessively counting down the days until Kate Middleton gives birth? If so, this will make your obsession a lot easier.

The Duchess of Cambridge just revealed her due date- not in specific terms or specific dates, mind you, but more specific than we had before (which was nothing).

The newest royal baby is set to pop between "mid-April" and "the end of April."

We know this because Middleton was visiting a children's center in London when a volunteer asked her to give up the due date details. Which Middleton did, surprisingly.

Middleton also said "not long to go now," confir...

Is Prince Charles Being Cut Out Of Prince George's Life?
When Prince George was born to Great Britain's Prince William and Kate Middleton two years ago, William's father Prince Charles described becoming a grandfather as "a unique moment in anyone's life."

How Badly Was Kate Middleton Photoshopped On This Magazine Cover
The latest issue of Australian magazine Woman's Day happened to feature the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

And now, that magazine cover is a worldwide news story- because Woman's Day photoshopped the unholy hell out of Middleton, to the point where she looks like some kind of swamp goblin.

Ok, it's not that bad. But it's not good. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

The cover's at the top of the article, in all it's badly-retouched glory. Middleton's skin tone is deathly pale, her cheeks are bright pink, her eyes are glowing and the sparkle coming off her earring is unnaturally...
