Empire News – Trump To Host Massive ‘I Beat Impeachment’ Party at White House This Weekend

WASHINGTON, D.C. 

President Trump has decided to throw a massive “I Beat Impeachment” party at the White House, which is slated to kickoff around 6PM on Saturday, with plans to run until the early morning hours on Monday.

“This is going to be the biggest, and best event that the White House has ever seen,” said President Trump. “When you’re the best, you want to have the best parties, and invite the best celebrities, and it’s going to be huge. Just huge. I’m very excited to have people join me for this mega-rager.”

Trump went on to say that several celebrity guests were scheduled to appear, including Eli Manning, Rush Limbaugh, Ted Nugent, and a “variety of Playboy Playmates” from the last several years.

“Oh man, the amount of planning this has taken is immense,” said a White House staffer who preferred to stay anonymous. “When the President parties, it’s a big deal. We need to include a barrage of cocaine and alcohol to keep the guests happy, and I’ll tell you right now – if you think the impeachment was a waste of taxpayer money, the cost of this party is going to put that to shame.”

Musical guests scheduled to perform include Kanye West, Dire Straits, and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Meet Cthulhu Turkey: It’s a Turkey Stuffed With Octopus That People Actually Make

People are weird. They cook and eat the strangest things. This time it’s an octopus stuffed inside a turkey, sitting on top of crab legs, and (optionally) garnished with bacon strips. This monstrous culinary invention was inspired by H.P. Lovecraft’s mythos, and honestly… it looks like a crime against culinary art.

Actresses Who Hid Their Pregnancies While Filming

“I was hiding behind every tree in that wood!”

Pregnancy is an exciting time for many actresses but for those in the middle of filming a TV show or movie, it can get a little complicated! While they’re getting ready to welcome a new addition IRL, it may not be true for their on-screen characters.

But thanks to help from the rest of the cast and crew, actresses like Emily Blunt and Kerry Washington were able to keep things under wraps. Although some eagle-eyed fans may notice some conveniently placed purses and extra baggy clothing, their pregnancies go unnoticed for the most part.

Find out which actresses hid their pregnancies while filming…

1. Gal Gadot

Gal Gadot was noticeably five months pregnant while filming reshoots for “Wonder Woman,” so the special effects team had to step in. Costumers cut a hole from the middle of her superhero suit and replaced it with a bright green cloth so that the special effect department could alter her figure in post-production.

“On close-up I looked very much like Wonder Woman. On wide shots I looked very funny, like Wonder Woman pregnant with Kermit the Frog,” Gal jokingly told EW.

2. Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt was pregnant while filming “Into The Woods,” which was ironic considering her character desperately wanted a baby but couldn’t have one. Emily’s co-star Meryl Streep said that during filming, Emily had to constantly hide behind James Corden and her apron was always being adjusted.

“I was hiding behind every tree in that wood! Colleen Atwood, who’s the most remarkable costume designer, as everybody knows, was so accommodating. I would say towards the end, every four or five days they were making some adjustments,” Emily told Us Weekly.

3. Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet was actually five months pregnant while filming “Divergent” and in order to cover it up, her character was often carrying an iPad or folder in her arms.

“We had to be very strategic in the way that we shot her. She always had some sort of file or case in her hand that was sort of protecting, you know, her bump,” director Neil Burger said in the film’s DVD/BluRay special commentary.

4. Kerry Washington

Kerry Washington was pregnant during both season three and season six of “Scandal” and managed to conceal it both times! While season three was cut short by a few episodes, in season six, Kerry strategically hid her bump with coats and purses.

“You could play a really fun game for the first five episodes of ‘find the bump.’ We shot five episodes before I gave birth and the rest of them are after. [We hid it] behind flowers, behind Prada purses, behind big coats and capes,” Kerry told ABC News.

5. Reese Witherspoon

Back in 2003, Reese Witherspoon starred in “Vanity Fair” while she was pregnant with her second child. Thankfully, she was able to easily hide her stomach by wearing the voluminous period dresses and standing behind strategically placed pieces of furniture.

“We’ve had a couple of scenes where my stomach was peeking out a bit, but we’ve found solutions,” Reese told People at the time.

6. Mindy Kaling

Mindy Kaling is a pro at concealing her baby bumps but she had a little help from costume designer Sal Perez during the final season of “The Mindy Project.”

“I shot the entire last season pregnant and @MrSalPerez hid it so well! As did Michael Spiller and our cinematographer, Marco Fargnoli. The finale I was almost 7 months along and it was a heat wave. See if you can tell,” Mindy wrote on Twitter.

7. Amy Poehler

Amy Poehler was pregnant while filming two different seasons of “Parks and Recreation” but was able to keep it under wraps thanks to help from wardrobe, cameramen, and some convenient placement of Aziz Ansari.

“Well, we have just been kind of lucky in the past couple of episodes. Frankly, it’s a combination of good camera work and a good wardrobe department,” Amy reportedly told Fancast at the time.

8. Sarah Jessica Parker

Right before Sarah Jessica Parker began filming season five of “Sex and the City,” she found out she was pregnant. The news both delayed and shortened the season and the rest of the time was spent covering up Sarah’s bump with baggy clothing and purses. Although there were rumors that the writers considered adding Parker’s pregnancy into the show, she says it was never an option.

9. Halle Berry

While filming “X-Men: Days of Future Past” Halle Berry was expecting her son Maceo. Director Bryan Singer decided to squeeze all of Halle’s scenes into the first few weeks of filming while she was able to comfortably fit into her Storm costume.

“I was pregnant then, I was three months pregnant. It was different. I had to shoot really fast. I shot for about two weeks. That was about as much as I could do before I was busting out of the suit,” Halle said on “The Queen Latifah Show.”

10. Blake Lively

Blake Lively hadn’t announced her pregnancy while she was filming “The Shallows” but thankfully was able to conceal her bump with her surfboard. She actually performed almost all of her stunts while working on the movie and didn’t need a stunt double until the final two weeks of shooting!

11. Kristen Bell

Kristen Bell worked around her pregnancy while filming “House of Lies” and even had to film sex scenes while seven months pregnant!

“I delivered two weeks after we wrapped. There was a storyline in the second season when my character has a sex tape…We had to shoot the sex tape and I was seven months pregnant at that time. They were like fitting me in these negligees, and I had this huge beer belly, huge gut and I was pretending to act in a sex tape. Now I can forever look at my daughter and say, ‘Oh, you were present for that.’ [They shot above my belly] and then they just took it out. I tried to work it. I’m very comfortable with the crew,” Kristen joked on Conan.

12. Claire Danes

Claire Danes had CGI on her side when it came to her pregnancy during the second season of “Homeland.”

“I’ve been pretty fortunate thus far — we’re in the middle of filming our second season and luckily we’ve been able to conceal it. It’s now getting to the point where I’m looking a little knocked up. They haven’t written it in, but they’ll be able to manipulate it in post and do some CGI trickery and make Carrie not so pregnant,” she said on Live! With Kelly and Michael at the time.

13. Jaime King

Jaime King attempted to work around her pregnancy while filming “Hart of Dixie” and actually was on the set up until the day before she gave birth!

“I shot until the day before I gave birth, literally, then went back six weeks later…it was gnarly! But the blessing was by doing what I love to do it kept me distracted and it kept me active and healthy and I felt safer being on set because I knew if anything were to happen, my crew and cast would take care of me,” Jaime told Us Weekly.

All The Celebs Who Married Into Royal Families — Besides Meghan Markle!

Meghan Markle isn’t the only celebrity to join the royal ranks!

When Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot, it made headlines around the world — but it turns out that Meghan isn’t the only celebrity to have found her real-life prince charming! In fact, quite a few actors, models, and musicians have married into royal families and gained a new royal title along the way.

Thanks to a few bonafide princes, as well as members of nobility and other aristocrats, stars like Olivia Wilde and Diane von Fürstenberg suddenly found themselves a member of a royal family. And while royal status doesn’t always change your life like it did for Meghan Markle, it certainly makes things a lot more interesting!

Find out which stars have married into royal families…

1. Sofia Hellqvist

Sofia Hellqvist was a model and actress, known for her part in reality show “Paradise Hotel,” before she met Sweden’s Prince Carl Philip. The duo reportedly first crossed paths while dining at the same restaurant and were then introduced by mutual friends. Several years later, they tied the knot and the couple now share three children.

“It has been speculated that I wasn’t embraced by the family, but it was the opposite. I felt welcome from day one and nothing else,” Sofia said in the “The Year with the Royal Family” documentary.

2. Olivia Wilde

Before landing her breakout role in “House,” Olivia Wilde was introduced to Italian filmmaker Tao Ruspoi, who also happened to be the son of late Italian Prince Dado Ruspoli. The duo tied the knot just six months later when she was 18-years-old, making Olivia a princess. Despite the royal title, Olivia has said it didn’t really impact their life. The duo remained together for eight years before going their separate ways.

“It’s kind of hilarious, because my husband and I are so not concerned with it. All it means to us is having an incredible family history. But it’s still funny,” Olivia told Fox News of her royal status before the couple’s split.

3. Grace Kelly

Iconic Hollywood actress Grace Kelly became the Princess of Monaco after meeting Prince Rainier III at the Cannes Film Festival in 1955. When the couple wed 1956, Grace gave up not only her acting career but also her fortune. According to a new documentary, she had to pay a $2 million dowry to the House of Grimaldi, which would be roughly $20 million today. The royal couple remained married until Grace’s passing in 1982 at age 52.

“I’ve been very lucky in my life but I certainly don’t wake up in the morning thinking I’m living a fairytale. I have a job to get done and children to raise and a lot of responsibilities and obligations that perhaps are more trying that a lot of people have,” Grace said before her death.

4. Jessica Chastain

Jessica Chastain could technically be a countess thanks to her marriage to Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo. The duo tied the knot in 2017 and although they don’t live the royal life, Gian Luca is a member of an Italian aristocratic family that dates back to the 1300s. While Gian Luca’s father Alberto still technically holds the title of Count, Gian Luca will likely inherit the title.

5. Sophie Winkleman

Actress Sophie Winkleman married into the British royal family in the midst of her acting career, but most people had no idea! Sophie and Lord Frederick Windsor, the son of Prince Michael of Kent and first cousin of Queen Elizabeth II, tied the knot in 2009. Despite her new royal status, the couple left their life behind to continue Sophie’s acting career in Los Angeles. For most of her career, she was able to keep her title a secret thanks to her decision to use her maiden name.

“People in my business in America didn’t know anything about it, because they’d just see ‘Sophie Winkleman’ on the sheet and I’d go and do the audition and then get the job or not. And they didn’t find anything out about me. They just knew me from my acting, which was quite important to me,” Sophie told Insider.

6. Diane von Fürstenberg

Fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg gained the title of Her Serene Highness Princess Diane of Fürstenberg when she tied the knot with Prince Egon of the German noble house of Fürstenberg in 1969. The duo had met at a birthday party in Switzerland while both of them were attending the University of Geneva and years later, decided to marry when they discovered they were pregnant with their first child. Several years after their wedding, they decided to separate and eventually divorced in 1983.

“Usually the fairy tale ends with the girl marrying the prince. But mine started as soon as the marriage was over,” Diane once told W magazine, explaining how her career truly began to thrive after the couple split.

7. Rita Hayworth

Rita Hayworth became one of the first Hollywood actresses to marry royalty when she tied the knot with Prince Aly Khan, who had reportedly become smitten after watching her in “Gilda.” During their short-lived marriage, the couple were targeted by jewel thieves, would-be kidnappers, and paparazzi. After an overwhelming few years, Rita fled back to America with their daughter and the couple eventually divorced.

8. Jamie Lee Curtis

Jaime Lee Curtis became part of noble lineage when she tied the knot with her British husband Christopher Guest. When Christopher’s father passed away, he inherited the title of Baron and therefore, Jamie Lee became a Lady. Although it doesn’t impact their lives much, at one time Christopher attended parliament in the UK and sat in the House of Lords.

“I’m a baron. I’m Lord Haden-Guest. And yes, that’s a novelty. Born into it by accident, obviously. And then your dad dies and you’re the next one…It has meaning for anglophiles who think it’s cool. Maybe there’s still a vestige of that. I was staying at an English hotel about five years ago and I ordered breakfast and the waiter who brought it was shaking like a leaf…And it hit me that for 800 years people were conditioned to think that way and behave that way and not make eye contact and be completely intimidated. What a horrible thought – that by an accident of birth you’re here and they’re there, bowing,” Christopher told The Guardian.

9. Laura Harring

Actress and former Miss USA Laura Harring found herself joining a royal family when she married Count Carl-Eduard von Bismarck-Schönhausen, the great-great-grandson of German chancellor Otto von Bismarck. The couple, who met when Laura happened to be roommates with his cousin in New York City, tied the knot in 1987, making her a Countess. Unfortunately, the marriage came to an end two years later reportedly because Laura did not want to give up her acting career.

10. Casper Van Dien

In 1999, actor Casper Van Dien married Catherine Oxenberg, the daughter of Princess Elizabeth of Yugoslavia. She’s also a second cousin once removed of England’s Prince Charles! Although Catherine isn’t a princess by title, it didn’t stop the couple from starring in their own reality show titled “I Married a Princess.” Then, after 16 years together, Casper and Catherine decided to go their separate ways.

11. Zsa Zsa Gabor

Actress and socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor gained a royal title when she married her husband Frédéric Prinz von Anhalt, although he became a prince in an unusual manner. Frédéric, who is also known as Prince Frédéric of Anhalt, Duke of Saxony and Westphalia, Count of Ascania, became a royal when he paid Princess Marie Auguste of Anhalt to adopt him as an adult.

“The princess was all alone. Because I knew she was lonely, I called her and took her out sometimes for dinner…I didn’t have any parents anymore, so one day she said, ‘I’m going to adopt you. You’ll be Royal Highness. You’ll have the highest title in Germany—everybody’s going to be jealous of you!'” Frédéric once told Vanity Fair of his royal status.
