The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, reportedly revealed that her husband, Prince William, had a tough time adapting to life as a father.

While talking to a single father during a visit to Family Action, a care center for expecting and new parents, Catherine — who is currently pregnant with her third child — reportedly told the father, Billy, that William “did not know what exactly to do when he first became a father,” according to the Telegraph.

“She was saying William was sort of similar, and I just wanted to let her know how Family Action has been there for me and I think they need more support,” Billy, who suffers from depression and is raising a 7-month-old daughter, told the Telegraph.

“I was suffering from severe depression and I thought, ‘I’m not going to let my daughter go into care, I’m going to step up and do this.’ I managed to turn myself around,” he said.

The Duchess also talked to a mother of two named Michelle about her son Jacob’s love of planes. “She was asking about what Jacob liked and he said he liked aeroplanes and she was asking if he’d seen a Spitfire and we said we liked going to the Science Museum and RAF museum,” Michelle said. “She was saying how George likes helicopters, she was saying about the top floor of the Science Museum where the helicopters are.”

Government pays "The Pioneer Woman" $2 million a year to use her massive estate

To her viewers, “The Pioneer Woman” is a relatable homemaker who can whip up a mean steak and also round up the cows they came from, but as it turns out, she also owns a giant chunk of Oklahoma.

>> Read more trending news

Ree Drummond, 48, and her husband Ladd own a whopping 433,000 acres of the Sooner State, making them the 23rd largest landowners in the country, according to the Land Report 100.

Their profile on the list gives some backstory into the cattle family’s start:

In 2015, Drummond Land & Cattle Co. was inducted into the Sooner State’s Quarter Horse Hall of Fame. The family helped write ranching history in Oklahoma. Clan patriarch Frederick Drummond (1864–1913) emigrated from Scotland and married Kansas native Addie Gentner. All three of their sons became successful cattle ranchers, and their descendants oversee hundreds of thousands of acres in Oklahoma and Kansas.

Their bovine enterprises keep money flowing in steadily, but they also have a giant tenant they rent to in the form of the U.S. government. Since 2006, the government has paid the Drummonds an average of $2 million a year to keep burros and wild horses on the estate, with the land going to “support animal protection,” the Daily Mail reported.

Being an amazing property owner isn’t Drummond’s biggest claim to fame, however. She’s the well-known face of Food Network’s “The Pioneer Woman,” which she started in 2011 to feature her popular recipes.

A sort of modern day Laura Ingalls Wilder, Drummond began blogging about life as a rancher’s wife in 2006. After a year, she posted her first food tutorial on the best way to cook a steak, which was a hit with readers. By 2011, Drummond’s food and lifestyle blog was seeing 23.3 million page views a month, reported the New Yorker. With the success of her blog, she created Tasty Kitchen to create a community for other home cooks to trade recipes and tips.

A blog and hit television show aren’t the only things Drummond’s had her hands in creating. She’s also the author who’s written several cookbooks, a love story chronicling how her relationship led her from almost becoming a Chicago lawyer to working on a ranch and a children’s book series based on the family’s late Basset Hound, Charlie. On top of that, she recently launched a magazine, which sold out its first issue.

“I think people are drawn to ‘The Pioneer Woman,’ not because I am some fascinating person, but because I present things that a lot of people can relate to,” said Drummond said in an interview with The Associated Press at The Pioneer Woman Mercantile, the restaurant and store she and her husband opened last October. “I’m not a chef, and I’m not an expert at anything. I’m just a mom and a wife,” she said.

It’s no wonder Drummond’s life story may potentially be turned into a film — although she’s a multimillionaire, Drummond remains homegrown and down to earth, and better still, her success isn’t forced.

“If I had sat down and tried to plan an empire there’s no way, no way any of this would have happened,” she said.

Kardashian let the news slip while talking about a baby shower she hosted this past weekend. 

“My daughter (North West) thinks she’s really tricky. We had a baby shower over the weekend. I thought, ‘I really do want to have a baby shower because I want (North) to feel that something’s coming and for her to really understand it,” Kardashian told DeGeneres. “People brought toys and gifts. She was opening them all up the next day and she said, ‘Mom, Baby Sister’s not here. I think I need all of her toys in my room. I’ll play with them and just make sure they’re OK for Baby Sister.’”

“You just told us it’s a girl,” DeGeneres replied.

According to Kardashian, 4-year-old North is excited to welcome her sister. But 1-year-old Saint West doesn’t have an understanding of the pregnancy, especially since his mother doesn’t have the pregnant belly

“I don’t know if my son gets it yet, especially since I don’t have the belly. It is a different experience. I said to my sisters, ‘Would it be really creepy if I just had someone dress up like a big stork and drop the baby off at the front door?’” Kardashian said.

Kardashian and West announced in September that they would be having a third child via surrogate. The couple has not yet chosen a name for their new bundle of joy.

Meghan Markle leaving ‘Suits’ after seven seasons

Change is in the air for “Suits” stars Meghan Markle and Patrick J. Adams.

>> Read more trending news

According to Us Weekly, Adams and Markle are planning an exit from “Suits” as USA networks prepares to renew the series for an eighth season.

Markle and Adams play on-screen fiances Rachel Zane and Mike Ross on the series, and there is a rumor that a wedding scene was filmed over the weekend in Toronto that could pave the way for the duo to make their exits, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Adams has directed several of the recent episodes and is reportedly looking to pursue other creative opportunities while things seem to be getting serious between Markle and Prince Harry.

Reps for Markle, Adams and USA have yet to confirm nor deny the rumors at this time.

Fans have been waiting for Prince Harry to pop the question to Markle but it’s unclear when a royal wedding could take place. It may be even longer than expected.

Sources close to the palace said that the couple will likely put off the announcement of their marriage until after Prince William and Duchess Catherine welcome their third child together in April.

“There won’t be any announcement until at least after Kate has had her baby in April,” a source with “excellent contacts in the palace” told The Daily Beast earlier this month.

Prince Harry’s biographer, Penny Junor also said he wasn’t sure Harry is ready to pop the question just yet.

“Harry is impetuous and he does make decisions quickly -- unlike William, who ponders and ponders -- but he is not foolish. He knows, of course, exactly what a royal marriage breakup is like and how much attention it gets,” he said. “It is one hell of an ask for her to give up everything she is and has achieved to marry into the British royal family.”

But honestly, is giving up all of the glitz of Tinsel Town to be a princess really that bad?

Season seven of “Suits” returns in January on USA.

“She was the best audience; she was the one I was always trying to make laugh,” Fallon told the crowd. “She was such a fan of the show and everything I did.”

“When we were little, my mom would walk us to the store — me and my sister — and we would hold hands. She would squeeze my hand three times and say, ‘I love you.’ And I would squeeze back, ‘I love you, too,’” Fallon said.

Fallon was reminded of this memory when he was with his mother in the hospital.

“Last week I was in the hospital, and I grabbed her hand and squeezed ‘I love you.’ I just knew we were in trouble, you know? … We’re going to continue to work really hard to bring some light and laughter into the world. Mom, I’ll never stop trying to make you laugh. I love you,” he said.

Last week, Fallon’s representative confirmed his mother’s death.

More sexual assault allegations, this time John Travolta is in the crosshairs

Actor John Travolta has been accused of sexual battery again after another masseur came forward and accused the “Pulp Fiction” star of groping his buttocks and exposing himself during a massage in Palm Springs, California, in 2000.

The accuser also claimed Travolta made comments about gay sexual fantasies during the alleged incident. Court documents obtained by RadarOnline said that Travolta requested an intimate massage around 1:30 a.m. on Feb. 15, 2000 and continually removed his towel exposing his bare buttocks, despite several attempts by the employee to cover him up.

The masseur claimed that Travolta asked him to sit in the steam room so he “wouldn’t be alone.” Once in the steam room, Travolta allegedly removed his towel and offered to give the masseur a massage himself.

He alleged that Travolta then “reached under his towel and began to rub his inner thigh.” Following the alleged incident in the steam room, the accuser said that Travolta made lewd comments to him. The unnamed accuser said he eventually reported the alleged incident to the Palm Springs Police Department. When an officer arrived, Travolta had already checked out.

Travolta faced similar allegations when he was sued after allegedly trying to have sex with a male masseur at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2012. Travolta, who is married to Kelly Preston, denied the claims that he made sexual advances or masturbated in front of the man.

Jordin Sparks announces she's married, pregnant

To the surprise and delight of many of her fans, singer Jordin Sparks is married and has a baby on the way. 

>> Read more trending news 

The 27-year-old former “American Idol” winner secretly married boyfriend Dana Isaiah in July, People magazine reported. They found out in August that they were expecting their first child together.

“We’re both really excited,” Sparks told People. “(Dana’s) been like, ‘I want to shout it from the mountain tops!’ We’re really proud to be married to each other and to be celebrating this.”

Sparks met Isaiah, 25, after the pair’s families put the two in touch. 

Sparks’ mother and Isaiah’s mother suggested the two text and talk so that Isaiah could get a better idea of what to expect if he moved to Los Angeles, where he was wanting to pursue his modeling career.

“My mom was trying to get her to talk me out of moving to L.A. because she’s experienced the industry out here,” Isaiah told People. “It wasn’t like, ‘We want you guys to date.’”

But after talking almost every day for about a month, the two grew feelings for each other. Isaiah flew to L.A. in April and met Sparks for the first time. The two hit it off.

“A couple days after we had actually met, I was like, in my head, ‘That’s going to be my husband! That’s my husband right there,’” Sparks said. “When I’m with him, I feel comfort and safety and calm and peace, and those aren’t things that I normally felt. So it was a little wake-up call for me.”

The couple wed in a private ceremony in Hawaii on July 16. Their bundle of joy is expected to arrive in the spring.

“I’m extremely grateful because life is nuts,” Sparks told People. “This is the best part so far because I have (Dana) and I have this little one and I have a new family. I’m the most content I’ve ever been in my life.”

Report says Tom Sizemore violated 11-year-old girl on movie set

Actor Tom Sizemore was removed from a movie set in 2003 after he allegedly touched an 11-year-old girl inappropriately, according to a report from The Hollywood Reporter.

THR, citing a dozen cast and crew members, reported that the 55-year-old actor was told to leave the set of “Born Killers” after the actress, now 26, told her parents Sizemore touched her genitals.

The actress’s parents declined to press charges, THR said.

“They did talk to the police but didn’t press charges,” one of the movie’s producers, Michael Manshel, told the publication. “We also talked to Tom at the time, and told him everything that had been told to us, and he said, ‘I’ve done a lot of awful things, and I’d never do anything with kids.’ We considered whether we had some responsibility to him to not pass judgment on him.”

At the time the film was being shot, under the name “Piggy Banks,” Sizemore had recently been convicted of harassing and physically abusing his ex-girlfriend Heidi Fleiss. He had been sentenced to six months in jail after the conviction. That same year, he admitted he was addicted to crystal methamphetamine. 

The actor’s management firm and talent agency reportedly dropped him soon after he was confronted with the 11-year-old actress’s claim.

Robyn Adamson, the actor who played the mother in the film, describes what she saw when the incident allegedly occured.

“At one point, her eyes got just huge, like she could've vomited. I was watching her,” she said. “She soon reintegrated and kept going, although she had trouble taking direction. Later, when I was told about what happened, I knew exactly what it was.”

Casting director Catrine McGregor said she got a call from the actor’s agent the day after, telling her what happened. 

“It filtered down to the crew,” Roi Maufas, who worked as a production assistant on the film, told THR. “The little girl said what she said and we all thought, ‘That (expletive) sleazebag.’ There was never any doubt. He was this guy who was already known for making inappropriate comments, being drunk, being high. We’re talking about consistent behavior, just being ‘Tom Sizemore’ on set every day. Then this happens.”

Because the actress’s parents chose not to file charges, Sizemore later participated in reshoots for the film in Malibu, California.

According to the report, the actress, who was not identified in the publication at her own request, would not address the incident except to say she has hired a lawyer to explore her legal options against Sizemore and her parents.

“Our position is ‘no comment,’” Sizemore’s agent, Stephen Rice, told THR.
