Dear Gossips,

Everyone is still talking about Prince Andrew announcing yesterday that he would be stepping down for the “foreseeable future” from public duties on behalf of the British royal family.

It’s pretty obvious that Team York did not show their work preparing Prince Andrew for his interview with Emily Maitlis for BBC Newsnight. On the other side of the interview though, it was Emily and her colleagues coming through with the work porn. And, fortunately for us, both she and producer, Sam McAllister, have given us some insight about their experience putting together the hour of television that, quite literally, brought down a member of the British royal family. Full Story

In its third season, The Crown experiences a reset, with a new cast coming in to play the royal family at a later stage in life. The Queen, now played by Olivia Colman, is in her middle life, older and no wiser as she navigates a changing world.

Lea Michele’s new video for “Christmas in New York” has dropped. While it’s supposed to have the feel of a bustling city, it’s clearly a soundstage mixed in with generic shots of “New York,” complete with a hokey taxi cab ride. Rebecca Alter at Vulture astutely points out it has the vibe of a Macy’s commercial Full Story

Not even going to pretend to know a lot about Sam Hunt, like his music. I do know that when he comes up in conversation, at least in my circle, it’s about how hot he is. There’s some gossip that floats around about him from my sources in Nashville but before we get to that, let’s cover the breaking news first – Sam was arrested early this morning. Full Story

As you probably heard, Charlie’s Angels bombed last weekend. Like seriously tanked. Franchise-killer flopped. Even with a sub-$100 million budget, an $8 million opening weekend is bad news. But, the movie is still rolling out overseas, including a premiere in London yesterday. Full Story
