George Michael's Funeral Kept Secret by Family

Added: 26.03.2017 8:16 | 2 views | 0 comments


George Michael's family are keeping his funeral a secret from the late singer's friends.
The 'Faith' hitmaker - who was found dead in bed on Christmas Day (12.25.16) - is reportedly being laid to rest next to his mother at Highgate West Cemetery, north London on Sunday (03.26.17) but his close friends haven't been informed by his relatives when the service will take place and have been camped outside the graveyard waiting for movement.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "They are ready to crash the funeral. They are yards from the entrance. You can't miss the car. It's a great big Range rover with personalised number plate."
The ceremony at Highgate is just 250 yards away from where George - who was just 53 when he passed away from natural causes - is expected to be buried alongside his beloved mother Lesley and will be an intimate affair with just 30 people.
A source previously said: "The funeral is going to be a very small, private gathering. The chapel only seats 30 so, apart from family, there won't be many others there.
"The details are a closely-guarded secret. Most guests will be told what's going on a few hours beforehand. The idea is to avoid them being mobbed by fans trying to get a glimpse of their idol's farewell."
Though details for the service are being kept as quiet as possible, it is believed former Spice Girls singer Geri Horner will give a reading after George's Wham! band mate Andrew Ridgeley - who gave a touching tribute to his friend alongside backing singers Pepsi & Shirley at the BRIT Awards last month - felt unable to address the congregation as it would be too emotional.
The source added: "Andrew overcame massive anxieties to perform a tribute at the Brits. He was asked to read at the funeral but felt it would be too much. Instead, Geri has been asked to speak. The choice has raised eyebrows among some of his friends as the two weren't close when he died."
It was recently claimed George has left his £10 million London mansion to his older sister Melanie, 55.
Melanie is thought to have already moved into the home whilst she plans the funeral of the ex-Wham! star.
A source said: "George was very close to his whole family but he had a particularly special bond with Melanie, who was by his side at the height of his fame.
"She adores the Highgate house, one of the first he bought. They shared some wonderful times there and it has a special place in her heart. Melanie is staying there at the moment while she organizes the funeral."

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West Attend Self Help Seminar

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West attended a self-help seminar, which has been designed to set people free from fear.
The couple - who share North, three, and Saint, 15 months - were seen at the Unleash The Power Within seminar, run by Tony Robbins, alongside Kim's sister Khloe Kardashian and their mother Kris Jenner.
The group splashed out on the Diamond Premiere VIP pack, giving them front row seats to Tony's inspiring talks.
Taking to Instagram, Kris shared a video of the day, captioning it: "So this happened today!!! Thank you @tonyrobbins for the amazing day today!! You are truly so remarkable and my family and I appreciate you so very much. #lifechanging #gamechanger #bestdayever #tonyrobbins #bestenergy (sic)"
Kim and Kanye have had a tough time of it recently after the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last October and the 'Only One' rapper was hospitalised with exhaustion a couple of months later.
And Kim is understandably still shaken by all that happened in Paris as she admitted reliving it all is still "very tough" for her.
Referring to the recent episode of her E! reality show where she opened up about the robbery, she said: "Tonight's episode is going to be very tough for me. However, I thought it was important to share this story through my eyes & not in an interview where my own words could be twisted. I have always shared so much & I'm not going to hold back when this was probably one of the most life changing experiences for me.
"I would never wish this experience upon anyone, but have learned some valuable lessons &feel so blessed to be safe home w my babies & husband. To my friends, family, and loved ones I can't thank you enough for being there when I needed you the most. To the French police, thank you for your incredible hard work (sic)."

Casey Wilson is expecting her second child with husband David Caspe.
The 36-year-old actress - who is best known for portraying Penny Hartz in the ABC comedy series 'Happy Endings' - announced the happy news on her joint podcast with comedienne Danielle Schneider called 'Bitch Sesh' on Wednesday (03.22.17).
The brunette beauty shared: "Some big news on my end, which is that I am pregnant again."
Although she can't wait to welcome her second bundle of joy into the world, Casey - who is currently in her second trimester - opened up about suffering with really bad morning sickness throughout her pregnancy so far.
She said: "I'm so excited. I was feeling so sick for about a month, but now I'm ... not feeling great."
Casey and her screenwriter spouse David, 38, - who got married in May 2014 at an intimate outdoor wedding in the Californian city of Ojai - have been vocal about wanting to add to their brood ever since they had their 22-month-old son Max in May 2015.
She previously said: "We both come from two-kid families and I can't imagine going through life without a sibling, especially later in life."
The couple are yet to divulge whether they are expecting a baby girl or baby boy, but Casey said when she had Max that she didn't feel "ready" to have a little girl after the death of her mother.
At the time, she said: "Having lost my mom, and having had such a close mother-daughter relationship, I felt like somehow I wasn't ready for a girl.
"I felt like the universe is letting me try this out with a boy first."

New movies available for streaming include Fences, Deidra & Laney Rob a Train, Pete's Dragon, and more

Added: 24.03.2017 10:00 | 0 views | 0 comments


Spring is arriving, so it seems fitting that several of this week’s streaming selections take the action outdoors, whether it’s telling the story of a couple sisters turned wannabee train robbers, or following a college baseball team in the last few days of summer, or exploring a black family living in the Louisiana Bayou. 
Some movies ask you to ponder heavy subjects, like assisted suicide or children’s fear of abandonment. And some on this list are just plain goofy.
If you were heading into the weekend without any firm plans, consider the matter closed.

Deidra & Laney Rob a Train (Netflix)

★★★☆☆


Netflix continues its Sundance spree, snapping up this unusual, amusing little crime film/family story and giving it an exclusive release. In Deidra & Laney Rob a Train (2017), older sister Deidra (Ashleigh Murray) is the top student in her miserable little high school, and while making money selling essays and test answers to fellow students, she prepares to head off to college with a well-earned scholarship. Unfortunately her mother (Danielle Nicolet) suddenly snaps inside a consumer electronics store, smashes a TV, and goes to prison. Deidra finds herself supporting her younger sister Laney (Rachel Crow) and their action-figure-loving younger brother (Lance Gray).
