1. Royal Rumors
Publications such as The New York Daily News and US Weekly broke a few hearts this week with the announcement of Prince Harry’s intentions to marry girlfriend Cressida Bonas, who he’s been dating for a year and a half now. After turning 30 and spending time with his new nephew, Harry thinks he is ready to settle down. Although Bonas has preoccupations of not being ready for marriage (she is 24), friends say her laid-back personality is so compatible with Prince Harry’s that they expect an engagement by the end of the year.
2. The Golden Girls
Fans spoke and the Golden Globes listened. After such successes (and lots of laughs) co-hosting previous Emmy and Golden Globes Awards Shows, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, BC ’93, have been asked to continue their reign by hosting the 2014 and 2015 Golden Globes. The Globes are overjoyed to have the duo onboard for another two years after seeing a 28 percent jump in the 19-24 age demographic. There’s no doubt fellow Eagles will be cheering Amy Poehler on.
3. The Phillips Mutiny
While Captain Phillips may be a success at the box office, there’s far less glamour behind the scenes. Crewmembers who endured the true pirate attacks of the Maersk Alabama in 2009 say the movie’s portrayal is “one big lie.” These crewmembers claim that Captain Phillips actually steered them into pirate-infested waters, alleging that he comes across as a hero in the movie Captain Phillips because it is based off of his inaccurate account.
4. Resuming The Search
After finally casting the controversial role of Christian Grey in E. L. James’ romantic novel turned movie, Fifty Shades of Grey, it appears the search might have to begin all over again. Charlie Hunnam (of Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim, below) says due to scheduling conflicts he will have to step down from the role. Many fans are ecstatic with the news—passionately believing Hunnam was not the right fit, while others are nervous of who may earn the newly opened spot. Whatever the opinion, Universal will need to find a replacement quickly if they want to keep their November production start date.
5. Ivanka's Baby Trump
On Oct. 14, a new addition was added to the Trump family. Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, welcomed a second child to their growing family. The baby will be a younger brother to their two-year-old daughter, Arabella, and though they have not chosen a name yet, they say the baby is healthy and doing well.
