Cosplaying Supervillain Roger Stone Meets Robert Mueller’s Real-Life Feds

Joe Skipper/Reuters

They were two ways Roger Stone’s morning arrest could have played out.

The first scenario is the one Roger rehearsed in his mind a hundred times; his attorney would have been notified well in advance, giving America’s number one parody cartoon supervillain time to assemble some typically foppish confection: perhaps a purple morning coat, spats, hand-tooled lemur-skin calf boots, a jaunty top hat, a monocle, and an exotic cravat tied in a knot typically used only in vigorous German fesselspiele games. He would stride toward the waiting federales with a louche swagger, his bejeweled walking stick in hand. He would smile for the assembled cameras and toss off some bon mot that communicated both searing contempt and breezy insouciance.

Instead, a second, real-world scenario obtained. A frowzy, shocked Roger Stone woke to the sound of “FBI, WARRANT! OPEN THE DOOR!” in the predawn hours. The FBI may not be getting paid, by that didn’t stop them from rolling hard on Stone’s lair, arresting him, and booking him into the Broward County jail. Stern but polite FBI agents arrested Stone on seven counts of lying to Congress and Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

‘KUWTK’ Finale: Kim Kardashian Meets With Trump, Worries About Kanye

Going out with a bang! The Sunday, December 9, season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians was jam-packed with drama as Kim Kardashian juggled Kanye West‘s TMZ Live appearance, a meeting with President Donald Trump, and the Met Gala.

The episode began with a heartbroken Kim explaining how she became moved and inspired by one prisoner’s story. Alice Johnson, Kim explained to sister Kourtney Kardashian, was a woman who’d been in jail serving a life sentence for 21 years over a nonviolent first-time offense. Kim became involved in the case after reaching out and offering to help. Kim told Kourtney, “The only person who can grant her clemency … would be the president.” In a testimonial, Kim explained her plan to help Alice involved a White House visit. “My first phone call was to Ivanka [Trump]. … She connected me with her husband Jared [Kushner],” Kim said. “They’ve asked me to go and talk to Trump about why Alice should get out.”

Kim also revealed, “I’ve been so straightforward with Jared that I have different views. I was at Hillary [Clinton] fundraisers. This might not be a popular opinion, but I’ll talk to who I need to talk to to get things done.”

In the midst of planning her White House visit and traveling to New York for the Met Ball, Kim was hit with a curveball: her husband Kanye’s controversial TMZ Live appearance where the rapper stated, “When you hear about slavery for 400 years … for 400 years? That sounds like a choice.”

Momager Kris Jenner was slated to appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show shortly after the statements were made. Backstage at the talk show, she told boyfriend Corey Gamble that Kim had told her, “You’re not the person who’s qualified to talk about Kanye. You’re just gonna make it worse.” Kris, who refused to cancel her TV appearance, added that despite the nature of Kanye’s comments, “My loyalty really lies with Kanye.”

Later, while getting ready for the Met Gala in her New York City hotel room, Kim opened up to Jonathan Cheban about Kanye’s actions. “Everyone thinks he’s having a breakdown,” she said. “When I saw the clip, I rushed home, I was hysterically crying. So I go home, he’s totally fine.”

“When he gets ramped up, he can’t control what he says. He can’t let it go. But he loves getting ramped up,” she continued. “As a wife, it’s really frustrating to see the media take everything and run with it.”

As the Kanye controversy roared in the background, Kim was all business as she traveled to the White House with attorney Shawn Holley, the lawyer who famously represented Lindsay Lohan during her 2013 legal battle. Holley described the meeting with Trump, saying, “It was a lot of chit-chatting. They talked a little bit about Khloé [Kardashian] on The Celebrity Apprentice.”

There was also “a lot of Kanye talk. [Trump said,] ‘Oh, I love Kanye,’” Kim added. “Jared had said Kanye speaking out and reaching out had been very positive for this.”

The meeting resulted in a positive outcome when, a few days later, Kim, in the middle of a photo shoot, was able to break the news to Alice Johnson that she’d be released from prison. Alice, who later appeared in the episode as Kim flew to Tennessee to meet her, cried and called Kim an “angel.”

As for her meeting with Trump, Kim later told Shawn, “This has nothing to do with politics. I don’t really know anything. This just has to do with getting in front of the person that is the only person in the world that can make this decision and try to change their mind.”

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs on E! Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.

Boy Meets World’s Danielle Fishel Marries Jensen Karp: ‘The Best Day of My Life’

Danielle Fishel is married!

The Boy Meet’s World alum has tied the knot with Drop the Mic executive producer Jensen Karp, she confirmed on social media over the weekend.

“Mr. & Mrs. Karp. Established 11/04/2018,” Fishel, 37, wrote on Instagram alongside a wedding photo that showed off the delicate, lace short-sleeves of her wedding gown.

Sharing another photo from the nuptials — taken by B.O.B. Photography — Karp, 38, wrote, “Today I married my soulmate. We were surrounded by family and friends and it was the best day of my life.”

He added, “I also ate 3 donuts after dinner. Unrelated. @daniellefishel, I love you so much and thank you for giving me this smile.”

Guests included Fishel’s Boy Meets World costars Ben Savage and Will Friedle, along with Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park and Karp’s groomsman John Mayer, who serenaded the newlyweds with his cover of Beyoncé‘s “XO” for their first dance.

“Jensen brought many new and wonderful friends into my life and the friendship of @johnmayer is at the top of the list. His immense talent is only overshadowed by his humor, his heart, his sincerity, his loyalty, his candor, and his generous spirit,” Fishel captioned a video from the wedding.

“We are beyond grateful and thrilled that he was not only a groomsman but agreed to sing our first dance song. I’m obsessed with his cover of this song (XO by @beyoncé) and he played it for us live at the Forum last year simply because I told him how much I loved it. Thank you, John, for all of it.”

Meghan Markle Cradles Baby Bump as She Meets Members of the Public with Prince Harry in Auckland

The weather finally cleared up for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they greeted fans in Auckland, New Zealand.

After a busy day that included dedicating an area of native bush to the Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy, participating in “welly wanging” contest with local children and visiting a charity that supports children who have a parent in prison, the royal couple met members of the public.

As they interacted with fans, the royal parents-to-be received several gifts from the crowd including an All Blacks — the country’s football team — onesie, a tui bird soft toy and even a rain boot, or a Wellington as locals call the footwear, stuffed with roses.

Meghan, 37, stepped out in a beige Brandon Maxwell dress with matching Stuart Weitzman pumps and a beige Burberry Bishop trench coat.

The dress clung to her baby bump which she cradled as she walked along with Harry, 34,  by her side. For their meet and greet, the prince wore a navy suit with a white button-down shirt underneath.

The duo made sure to talk to as many royal fans as possible — especially the younger members of the crowd.

Meghan invited a little girl through the crowd control fence and was rewarded with a sweet stuffed toy of a native tui bird.

Harry was particularly enamored with a little baby and reached out and gave the child what appeared to be a little tickle.

“Walkabouts,” as the royal meet and greets are commonly referred to, have provided some of Meghan and Harry’s most candid moments of the royal tour. Shortly after arriving to New Zealand, Meghan comforted a sobbing teenage fan by holding her hands.

One young royal fan who was wearing a shirt that read “Girls Can Do Anything” caught Harry’s eye in Sydney — so much that he just had to call his wife over to meet her.

“We feel she looks a bit like you,” a person in the crowd is heard telling Meghan in a video posted by Harry Meghan Updates on Instagram.

The Duchess of Sussex replied, “I was literally about to say the same thing!”

Harry then took a fan’s phone to snap a photo of Meghan with her mini-me —  a rare move for the prince, who usually adheres to the royal protocol of no autographs or selfies.

”Girls can do anything“ that’s correct. Prince Harry is such a nice Person! Unforgettable moment for a sweet little girl! 🇦🇺

Earlier in the day, the royal couple bonded with local children from the environmental education group, “Trees of Survival,” and joined the kids for a “welly wanging” contest.

The objective of the game was to throw a Wellington boot — which New Zealanders refer to as “Wellies” — as far as possible. (Wellingtons are equivalent to what Americans call rainboots, Bean Boots, or duck boots.)

The children cheered as Meghan showed off her strength and won the competition, throwing her red-and-white polka-dotted boot approximately a meter away from Harry’s blue boot. For the win, the Duchess was rewarded with a rainboot-shaped trophy.

Adding to the couple’s growing list of baby gifts, Meghan and Harry were also given a small pair of green and white boots for their newest family member.

Later on in the day, the Royals joined New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern in Auckland for a visit to Pillars, a charity that supports children who have a parent in prison by providing special mentoring programs.

Meghan and Harry already had a special connection to the charity: as a wedding present to the couple, the government of New Zealand gifted $ 5,000 to Pillars. During Tuesday’s visit, they met some of the children who directly benefited from the funding.

The royal couple started their whirlwind 16-day tour Down Under in Sydney, with a number of day trips to other areas of the country, and kicked off the 2018 Invictus Games before spending a few days in Fiji and Tonga.

They returned to Sydney for the end of the Invictus Games before heading to New Zealand to wrap their tour.

Meghan and Harry will wrap up their busy day at a reception hosted by the Prime Minister at the Auckland War Memorial Museum.

Taylor Swift Meets 8-Year-Old Boy with Autism Who She Donated $10,000 to for a Service Dog Two Years Ago

Two years after Taylor Swift donated $ 10,000 to a 5-year-old boy with autism for a therapy dog, the Grammy winner had a big surprise for his family.

On Saturday, the 28-year-old singer gifted front-row seats and backstage passes to Jacob Hill, 8, for her NRG Stadium show in Houston. The young fan and his service dog, Reid, shared the special moment with his mother, Allison Hill and sister, Jordan Fox.

“Taylor Swift was so kind. She said Reid was a big puffball and so cute. She was especially awesome with Jacob. She didn’t see my son’s disability she just saw him,” Allison shared in a Facebook post for Autism Speaks. “She got on her knees and looked him right in the eyes and said hello and she was thankful HE came to her show even though she knew it was loud and there was so much going on.”

Allison was particularly impressed by Swift’s ability to make her son feel welcome and called her an “autism advocate.”

“He grabbed her face and pulled her hair back and said ‘Hi Taylor!’ which was something we were working on all week, but didn’t know if he would be able to say it,” she wrote of the pair’s sweet interaction.

“After the picture was taken, the flash scared him so he snuggled right up to her and her sweet smile says it all. My daughter, Jordan, was pumped to meet her. We feel so blessed! Taylor is such an amazing person for doing this for us…again! Jacob made it through almost the entire concert.”

The meeting was made possible after Swift discovered Jacob’s 12-year-old sister and cousin Makaylee Duhon’s cover of her hit, “Blank Space,” in 2016.

The clever pair changed the lyrics and sang, “We got a long list of donations / But we don’t see your name / We got a blank space baby / So donate today.”

Nearly a month after the video was posted on Jacob’s GoFundMe page, the “Delicate” singer and her mother, Andrea Swift donated $ 10,000 with the message, “Jacob, we hope you love your new dog! Please tell your cousins that they did a great job on the song! Love, Taylor and Andrea Swift.”

Since receiving his service dog in June, Jacob has been able to walk in grocery stores, cross busy streets and avoid dangerous situations.

A month after her son received his service dog, Allison wrote the open letter, “Dear Taylor Swift, Your Gift for My Son on the Autism Spectrum Changed His Life.”

In the letter, she thanked Swift for “the priceless gift of a best friend” and detailed her son’s progress.
