Did the Media Create Prince William and Prince Harry’s Feud?

No one really knows quite what goes on behind the scenes at Kensington Palace. After the frenzy surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s picture-perfect royal wedding died down last year, reports of a massive feud between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge began to circulate. And, at the time, many believed it had something to do with the brothers’ plan to split their royal court. But, after months of speculation, the royal family finally confirmed the split — and the very logical reason for it.

Did the media create Prince William and Prince Harry’s infamous feud or were the royal brothers actually in a tiff? Find out, ahead.

Prince William and Prince Harry separate households

Last week, the royal family confirmed what has been haunting us for months: Prince William and Prince Harry are going their separate ways. However, the details aren’t as dramatic as many early reports believed. While we are sad to hear that the royal brothers plan to split their courts, the reason for it is completely logical and has nothing to do with a feud between the two.

According to the announcement, the split was a long time coming and has more to do with Prince William and Prince Harry’s different roles in the royal family. After all, Queen Elizabeth probably doesn’t have time for their fussing. “The long-planned move will ensure that permanent support arrangements for the Duke and Duchess’s work are in place as they start their family and move to their official residence at Frogmore Cottage,” the statement explained.

Royal feud rumors

Every family has their differences and, believe it or not, the royal family is no different. Over the last eight months, rumors surrounding feuds between both Prince William and Prince Harry as well as Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have sparked a lot of media attention.

Prince William and Prince Harry were allegedly in a quarrel because the Duke of Cambridge felt his brother and Meghan Markle’s relationship moved too quickly. However, that’s not that crazy of a claim. For one, it did move kind of fast and two, he was just being protective of his little brother. Additionally, some believed Meghan Markle caused Kate Middleton to cry at a bridesmaid dress fitting ahead of the royal wedding. However, that rumor came and went fairly quickly. The two women attended a tennis match together not too long after and have been warm towards each other in their public outings.

Initially, some also believed that the reason Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are moving to Windsor was to put some distance between them and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. However, the real reason for the move stems from their desire to raise children outside of the hustle and bustle of the city and Kensington Palace spotlight.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Revoe Park, a recently revamped community garden and park that has been transformed thanks to involvement from CECD Blackpool’s ‘A Better Start’. Revoe Park had previously been a known location for drug use, in an area of significant deprivation, yet is now a great example of how a long-term community led initiative can transform lives and provide new opportunities. It is now helping young children experience gardening and the outdoors, as well as providing space and activities that allow parents, particularly men, to talk about mental health. #RoyalVisitBlackpool PA/Kensington Palace

Did the media create Prince William and Prince Harry’s alleged feud?

Since the news first broke, there has been a lot of back and forth between whether or not Prince William and Prince Harry are actually fighting, or if the feud is between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. However, all of it could just be hearsay, especially since the royal family has provided enough information to diffuse the allegations.

Australian of the year gives Diamonds a World Cup boost at AIS camp

The Australian Diamonds know World Cup preparation isn't rocket science, but can a quantum physics professor be their secret weapon?

The Diamonds finished a week-long camp in Canberra on Friday, with coach Lisa Alexander creating a training and game environment to replicate the draining schedule they'll face at the World Cup in July.

The players monitored what and when they ate as well as sleeping patterns to give them an idea of what they'll need to do to defend their title in Liverpool.

But Alexander also invited 2018 Australian of the year Michelle Simmons into the inner sanctum to provide her players with a different perspective on work ethic.

Simmons is a University of NSW professor of physics and was recognised for her pioneering researching and leadership in quantum computing.

"She talked about her journey and where's she's got to, and how she works in a team to achieve the best results," said Diamonds vice-captain Gabi Simpson.

"It's a competitive environment because every scientist wants to be the best they can be, but it only works when they work as a team. It was really amazing to hear from her, quite inspiring.

"It's so important because if you only hear from the same people every time, you can get complacent in your own bubble of understanding.

"The more people we get in from different areas of life creates different perspectives and shines light on new things we can do ourselves. The worst thing to do is to become stagnant. You have to find new ways to get bigger and better."

The Diamonds split up on Friday to return to their Super Netball franchises to fine-tune preparations for the season, which starts next month.

Laura Scherian, Cara Koenen, Kim Jenner, Matilda Garrett and Paige Hadley were added the Diamonds squad as trialists to put pressure on the regular squad members.

But Alexander was equally focused on cramming as much information and preparation into the camp given the Super Netball campaign will leave minimal time to plan for the World Cup.

The Diamonds will return to Canberra for their final camp in June, with the Diamonds scheduled to play four games in four days.

"The main purpose of this camp has been to emulate what the World Cup will be like, so it's been very match-play based," Simpson said.

"It's been extremely high intensity and that's been good … getting the understanding of how to prepare for back to back games.

"It's understanding yourself and how your body responds to backing up the next day. There's a physical side, a nutrition side of what you eat and if you have caffeine, and how you sleep.

"We may not nail it at this camp, but it's a really good learning tool for the World Cup."

Simpson will lead the Queensland Firebirds into the Super Netball season, starting with a clash against the Melbourne Vixens on April 27.

It will be the start of the Firebirds' journey without former Australian skipper Laura Geitz, who retired at the end of last year.

"The beauty of having Geitzy in the team is that she was always going to leave it in a better place than when she started," Simpson said.

"What she has done is set up a great platform for us … our young defenders were able to learn from her and she was absolutely vital in setting up the culture. She's left us with a blueprint of how to have success. We couldn't ask anything more, and it's exciting to see what these young defenders bring."

Noah Centineo: Meet the Actor and Learn Why He May Be Leaving Behind Heartthrob Roles

For those who frequent the “Romance” genre section of Netflix, you’ve probably already heard Noah Centineo’s name before. For those who don’t live for romantic comedies, keep reading to learn more about Noah Centineo. Plus, learn why he may not be playing a heartthrob in the future.

Who is Noah Centineo?

Centineo is a native of Miami, Florida. Born on May 9, 1996, to Kellee Janel (Andres) and Gregory Vincent Centineo, he grew up in Boynton Beach, Florida. Centineo has one sibling, an older sister named Taylor.

Centineo moved to Los Angeles at the age of sixteen after he attended a school for the arts in Florida.

How did Centineo get the scar on his face?

Centineo has a scar on his face that’s now become part of trademark look.

“I got attacked when I was six years old by a Mastiff,” Centineo told BuzzFeed.”He ripped a hole in my face, so you could see my teeth, my gums, and all the way through my tongue to the other side. There was a massive, gaping hole.”

“I specifically remember him lunging, being pulled away from him, and then looking back and seeing him cock his head like he didn’t really understand what happened,” Centineo said. “Some people were like, ‘Do you wanna put the dog down?’ I was crying, like, ‘No, he didn’t mean to do it!’”

Ironically, Centineo told the origin story of his scar during his puppy interview with the publication, according to Insider.

The bad encounter hasn’t turned him off of dogs completely.”Getting a dog, a bigger dog, after that was great, and now, the bigger the dog, the better,” he said.

‘The Fosters’

It didn’t take too long for Centineo to land a pretty big role after moving out to California. A year after being in L.A., Centineo got a role on the Freeform drama, The Fosters. He played the role of Jesus Adams Foster, taking over for actor Jake T. Austin.

A year into the role, Centineo earned a nomination for a Teen Choice Award for Choice Summer TV Star.

His breakout role

Centineo’s breakout role came in 2018 when Netflix premiered the teen romance film, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. The movie is based on the book series by Jenny Han. It’s quite simply a charming, feel-good movie about teenage love, with a bit of a John Hughes movie vibe.

Since the film received so much positive feedback from fans and critics, a sequel is now in the works.

On the heels of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before, Centineo starred in another Netflix teen movie, Sierra Burgess Is a Loser, opposite Shannon Purser. The back-to-back cute, high school guy roles cemented Centineo’s status as a heartthrob.

Centineo’s next roles

Centineo has already wrapped on playing the role of Brooks Rattigan in The Perfect Date. Rattigan “creates an app where anyone can pay him to play the perfect stand-in boyfriend for any occasion,” according to IMDb.

Additionally, Centineo landed a role in a reboot of Charlie’s Angels. And he has a role in the Jackie Chan written and directed film, The Diary, about a man who leaves Shanghai in the 1930s to reunite with his lost love in Europe.

Centineo became a director too. He directed the music video for the ARTY song, “Save Me Tonight,” and starred in it alongside actress Lily Collins, according to Teen Vogue.

Centineo may play a superhero

Shedding his heartthrob image, Centineo’s next role may be playing a superhero.

Centineo is in talks to play He-Man in Masters of the Universe movie, according to Entertainment Weekly. While his role in the film hasn’t been confirmed, we can say it would be interesting to see Centineo take on the role of a superhero.

The sad and slow decline of John Travolta’s career

John Travolta’s movie career has seen incredible highs and, more recently, hugely embarrassing flops, including laughable science fiction films, mocked mobster movies and ridiculed dad comedies. The latest example is “Trading Paint,” a poorly received drama in theaters Friday, in which the 65-year-old actor plays a race-car driver who comes out of retirement. Here we look back at the actor’s more than 40 shaky years in Hollywood.

Saturday Night Fever (1977)

After his breakout success on TV’s “Welcome Back, Kotter,” Travolta was stayin’ alive throughout the ’70s. At age 24, he received his first Oscar nomination for his role as disco-dancing Tony Manero in this classic NYC drama.

Grease (1978)

The actor, whose single “Let Her In” made the Billboard Hot 100, further proved his singing chops in this beloved musical comedy in which he played bad boy Danny Zuko opposite Olivia Newton-John as Sandy.

Pulp Fiction (1994)

After a career lull in the ’80s, Travolta hopped aboard the Quentin Tarantino bandwagon and snagged his second Oscar nod for playing gangster Vincent Vega. Here, Travolta memorably danced once again, this time with Uma Thurman.

Battlefield Earth (2000)

Then things went south. A Scientologist since 1975, Travolta co-produced and starred in this flick based on a book by church founder L. Ron Hubbard. The sci-fi flick was so bad that, in 2010, writer J.D. Shapiro apologized for penning the screenplay.

Wild Hogs (2007)

Once a smoldering dancer, Travolta segued into a sad-sack dad. In this poorly received lowbrow comedy, he played a Cincinnati lawyer who hops on a motorcycle with Tim Allen and Martin Lawrence and takes to the open road.

Gotti (2018)

Many critics called this biopic in which Travolta took on the part of Gambino boss John Gotti one of the worst movies of the year. His performance was universally whacked.

How Broadway’s ‘The Prom’ Is Representing Queer Women In A Way So Rarely Seen In Pop Culture

Broadway has a reputation for being an inclusive, queer-friendly space, and yet a new musical, The Prom, is still something of a first in its representation of a romance between two teenage girls — especially because it’s happy, hopeful, and without tragedy. "A lot of times we’re seeing young gay boy stories [on Broadway]," says The Prom star Isabelle McCalla, speaking over the phone, "which is wonderful." Yet there’s a major lack of shows starring young women, especially those who identify as queer.

"I think that’s what we’re getting so much from teenagers who come see it — girls are like, ‘we are seeing ourselves represented for the first time,’" continues McCalla. "And the fact that our show ends on a hopeful note for them, that means that they may also be able to have these relationships that succeed and not marred by tragedy all the time."

The Prom, which opened last fall, centers on a group of liberal, recently unemployed New York Theatre professionals who fly to a small Indiana town because a high school prom has been canceled by the PTA due to a girl named Emma (Caitlin Kinnunen) wanting to take her girlfriend, Alyssa (McCalla), as her date. The fact that Alyssa is the daughter of the PTA’s leader has already made things complicated — and things only get wilder once Broadway comes to town.

In the song "You Happened," the first act number whose music video you can watch exclusively above, the prom is — at least for the moment — back on. Amidst creative promposals from other students, Emma and Alyssa "steal a secret moment behind the bleachers to talk about how excited they are for the prom," explains McCalla, "and how Alyssa’s going to come out and they’re going to be together in public for the first time."

It’s a super sweet moment between the show’s romantic leads. "You get to see them enjoy each other and have fun with each other," says Kinnunen, also speaking via phone. The scene lets the audience see why Emma and Alyssa truly want to be together, despite the backlash they unfortunately experience. Its message is beautifully simple: what’s easier to understand than wanting to go to a dance with your high school sweetheart?

"In focusing on a small thing," says Kinnunen, "[the show] is actually dealing with issues that are much bigger. Prom is kind of a guise to open up the conversation to things that matter more than that." It’s clearly effective; some young audience members, Kinnunen and McCalla explain, even come up to them after the show in shock that LGBTQ+ discrimination is still so prevalent.

"It’s been a constant reminder to listen and to really communicate with people and be honest and open to different world views," says McCalla. "It’s been a refreshing look on the world outside of New York. This does happen in America. It still happen every day […] Proms do get canceled. Kids get expelled, kids get suspended all because they wanted to take a same sex date to their school dance."

Already, The Prom has broken major ground, when McCalla and Kinnunen shared the first same sex kiss to ever be featured during the 2018 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. After the event, the actors recall, letters started pouring in from people across the country who were inspired by that moment to come out to their families. "The fact that our show is […] the catalyst for the discussion between families," says McCalla, "is like the best thing,"

Watching the women sing and dance in The Prom, it’s impossible not to fall in love with them. The fact that the show is reaching so many people in powerful, essential ways is just the icing on the cake.

Who Killed Nolan? ‘PLL: The Perfectionists’ Boss Answers Burning Questions

The secrets return! Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, the spinoff of Pretty Little Liars, brought back the beloved Alison (Sasha Pieterse Opens a New Window. ) and wonky Mona (Janel Parrish Opens a New Window. ) and introduced a whole new group of “Perfs” as well as a major mystery element on the Wednesday, March 20, premiere.

The series kicked off with Ali moving to Beacon Heights after landing a T.A. job. She was shocked when she arrived and was greeted by Mona, who left France after the reasons she was there “escaped” her – a little nod to the PLL dollhouse. Now, Mona works at the college in admissions. So, why was Alison brought there?

She quickly realizes not only is she qualified but she was brought in to help protect the students and help them deal with the pressures they’re facing at BHU. Claire Hotchkiss (Kelly Rutherford Opens a New Window. ) runs the school and her daughter, Taylor, died months before. In fact, Ali could be Taylor’s twin – something she immediately found as much more than a coincidence. According to Claire, Ali was there to try and help the student mourn, including Claire’s son, Nolan (Chris Mason), and his friends Caitlin (Sydney Park), Ava (Sofia Carson) and Dylan (Eli Brown).

Alison has learned a lot since her days in Rosewood and immediately begins to see the cracks in this seemingly perfect group. Just from the outside, she realized Nolan and Caitlin are faking a relationship when he’s really into Ava and somehow, Dylan has been brought into it and has been doing both Ava and Nolan’s school work for them. However, Ali doesn’t yet know why. She gets even more confused when she can’t find any info on Taylor’s death, since the security system blocks any searching of her. (You’d think she’d go to a coffee shop off campus or google on her phone off the wi-fi.) It doesn’t help that she is also living in Taylor’s old house and finds that underneath the wallpaper, someone has written, “They’re watching.”

Luckily, the viewers know a little more about what Nolan has on everyone. He secretly hooked up with Dylan and is now using that as blackmail in order not to ruin Dylan’s current relationship. Nolan is dating Ava but because of her messy family life, he knows his mother would not approve so instead, he has a fake relationship with Caitlin, whose two mothers are very involved in politics. Caitlin, who is in a real relationship of her own, goes along with this because Dylan has photos of her mother with a man and threatened to release them and ruin her campaign.

Nolan is also keeping another secret: His sister is actually alive and monitoring the school’s insane security system, which Claire seemingly is controlling, watching everyone’s every move. He actually cheats on Ava just to end their relationship, in order to protect her. (He tells her he was just using her for sex, when he clearly cares about her – very Sebastian and Annette-esque.)

The episode ends with a shocking death; Nolan stands on the school’s rooftop when someone in a dark jacket arrives. He thanks them for coming, apologizes for how he’s been acting and tells them Taylor is alive. Then that person pushes him off the roof and his body is impaled. The entire town sees it and Mona freaks out, asking in a mirror later that night, “Was this our fault?” It turns out she’s speaking to the security system – and she’s definitely involved in something messy as the last shot is a room monitoring the entire town on thousands of screens. Mona’s then told, “Go to your safe place.”

Creator I. Marlene King breaks down the pilot and previews what’s next.

Us Weekly: We have to start with that ending, that creepy room and how Mona is involved. What can you say?
I. Marlene King: Well I can’t say much but over the first 10 episodes, we will found out just how much she knows about that room. Mona’s backstory was that she went into game design. And that’s where Claire Hotchkiss found her, and realized she had such a great algorithm that she was using in her game design, that could help find the best and the brightest recruits to bring to Beacon Heights.

Us: Are you worried about Emison fans reacting to Alison leaving behind her family?
MK: We’re going to see Alison’s character evolves over the first 10 episodes and deal with the fact that she’s all the way across the country and Emily and her toodles are still back in Rosewood and I think we’ve been very true to that couple. Obviously they’re not physically together on the show. Sasha and I talked about how important it was to stay true to where we left them and where they’re going to go. Some fans won’t be happy with us but I think most will be.

Us: I loved how independent Mona was in PLL but now she’s a bit older. Will she have a love interest?
MK: We’re going to explore a really fun relationship with Mona. When we first meet her, she seems to be quite content, but once Alison finds out what she’s up to, that’s going to launch her quest for romance.

Us: Nolan is dead – we saw his body. How much more will Chris Mason be in the series? He literally has chemistry with everyone!
MK: Oh yeah, he’s dead! There’s no coming back from that. Chris won’t participate in every episode but I think he was in, like, seven out of ten. It’s not the last you’ve seen of Nolan even though he’s no longer currently living on this Earth.

Us: Was the person who killed Nolan the person he thought he was meeting?
MK: I can’t say but that question will be answered!

Us: At one point, Alison says she used to be like Nolan. Can you talk a bit about that and how Ali has changed?
MK: There’s a line in these first couple episodes, where she says to Mona, ‘Why do you think I faked my own death?’ And Mona says, ‘Because everyone in Beaton Heights wanted to kill you.’ She made a lot of enemies just like Nolan did, but yet she was also quite charming when she needed to be. Nolan’s very similar in that respect. Ali definitely wants to shed that “mean girl” person; she’s here to help the kids. But she gets some advice from Claire early on that helps her stay true to … I don’t want to say her inner mean girl, but her inner voice of being resilient.

Us: When it comes to Ava’s secrets, we didn’t get too much of her backstory yet, just sprinkles of her broken home life.
MK: Ava has really developed this hard shell around her, because she has been abandoned by her family, and now she’s got to deal with Nolan’s cheating on her, then the loss of Nolan which is all very complicated. She brings a lot of depth to this world. Her character really is like an onion that we’re going to peel back the layers from, little, by little, by little until we really get to know her more. The same goes for. They’re all going to try to come to terms with why they were with Nolan, in spite of the fact that they knew he had this inner bad boy quality.

Us: And then there’s Claire Hotchkiss. I don’t think anyone could play that part like Kelly Rutherford does. Can you talk a bit about her pull on everyone and everything?
MK: She definitely likes to be in control, and we’ll find out why. It’s not just necessarily from sort of this villainous place. There is a true motivation to why she wants to control people in the way that she does, and it’s not necessarily negative. Also, Kelly is such a joy to have onset. When she showed up for the pilot, we were all fangirling. She really is just this very funny, lovely, kind human being. She brings so much to this show, because she really classes up the place.

Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists airs on Freeform Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET.

The ‘Castle Rock’ Season 2 Cast List Proves The Show Is Only Getting Creepier

Be prepared to be scared, y’all: the original King of Horror himself, Stephen King, is back with a second season of Castle Rock. Deadline reported on Wednesday, March 20, that Hulu’s psychological drama would return with a brand new cast, and, let’s just say it’s a pretty impressive roster. In fact, the Castle Rock Season 2 cast proves the show is getting even creepier, and the list also hints at a potential Misery crossover.

Season 2 of the horror anthology series from J.J. Abrams and Stephen King will star Lizzy Caplan as nurse Annie Wilkes, the number one fan to end them all — literally, with an axe. Caplan will play a younger version of Kathy Bates’ iconic super-fan, a role that won the actor an Academy Award for Best Actress in 1991 (a year when horror performances were appreciated—justice for Toni Colette in Hereditary). Deadline summed up Season 2 like this: "A feud between warring clans comes to a boil when Annie Wilkes, King’s nurse from hell, gets waylaid in Castle Rock."

If you know anything about King, it’s that he loves a family feud, which explains Elsie Fischer’s role. The actor, who won the hearts of audiences everywhere with her performance in Eighth Grade, will play Joy, Annie’s daughter, who begins to question her mother’s mental health in the series. (Yes girl, you should be asking some questions!)

Tim Robbins, meanwhile, is joining the cast to play another classic King character, Reginald "Pop" Merrill from The Sun Dog, a local crime boss of sorts who owns a junk shop and is dying of cancer. Robbins most recently starred in HBO’s Here And Now, but he’s most well-known for his performance as Andy Dufresne in The Shawshank Redemption, one of King’s most beloved stories. And guess where Shawshank Prison was? That’s right, a stone’s throw from Castle Rock, according to Vulture.

Garrett Hedlund, meanwhile, was cast as Pop’s nephew John "Ace" Merrill who is the town bully hoping to take over his uncle’s criminal enterprise. According to a press release from Hulu, via Indiewire, Ace was described as "taking over his uncle Pop’s businesses and threatening a fragile peace with nearby Jerusalem’s Lot." If you’re a King fan, you know that this means an "overt tie-in" to 1975’s Salem’s Lot.

Castle Rock‘s Season 2 cast will also include Yusra Warsama (NBC’s Dracula), Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips), and Matthew Alan (13 Reasons Why).

Castle Rock, Maine, isn’t technically a real town, but Stephen King has practically made it so over his career, populating it with the absolute worst and weirdest characters one could ever hope to meet. So many of King’s classics take place there, and nay were referenced in Castle Rock Season 1 which debuted on Hulu last summer, including The Dead Zone, Cujo, and Stand By Me.

But for fans of the show who might not be as familiar with the Stephen King universe, don’t worry. All you need to know is that Annie Wilkes is THE number one fan, and she’ll follow you until you love her, or she’ll — spoiler alert — cut your legs off!

The moment Chad Kelly is chased from home with vacuum cleaner tube

Newly revealed video shows former Broncos quarterback Chad Kelly being chased out of the Colorado home he broke into by a man carrying a vacuum cleaner tube.

Kelly, who faced criminal trespassing charges, avoided jail time on Wednesday after he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of criminal trespassing. He’ll have one year of supervised probation and have to complete 50 hours of community service, according to the Denver Post.

The couple living in the home, according to the report, handed over surveillance video that shows Kelly dressed as Woody from “Toy Story” after he was infamously booted from linebacker Von Miller’s Halloween party in October.

The 24-year-old entered the home and sat on the couch next to a woman who was holding her baby before he was chased out of the home by the owner, who wielded a vacuum cleaner tube, according to cops. Kelly eventually was found in his car and taken into police custody.

In the video, Kelly is seen scrambling out the front door and onto the homeowner’s lawn as the man appears to be holding the vacuum cleaner tube.

Another video, obtained by TMZ, shows Kelly in police custody, where he appears to be crying and praying while in a holding cell at the police station.

Kelly, nephew of Bills legend Jim Kelly, has posted video on Twitter since his release of him running football drills. However, he remains unsigned after the Broncos released him following his arrest.

Nolan’s Death In ‘The Perfectionists’ Book Is Way Different Than In The ‘PLL’ Spinoff

Spoilers ahead for The Perfectionists book. Sara Shepard is basically royalty when it comes to the world of YA fiction to TV drama adaptations. Pretty Little Liars, which ran for seven seasons from 2010 to 2017, ranks among the most-adored soapy teen dramas like Gossip Girl and The Vampire Diaries. Now, Freeform is taking a crack at another one of her stories: The Perfectionists. PLL: The Perfectionists premieres on March 19, and it promises to be packed with just as much drama and mystery as its predecessor. And the main mystery at the heart of all the action is — who killed Nolan Hotchkiss and why?

In the trailer for The Perfectionists, it looks like Nolan (played by Chris Mason) has at least somewhat ingratiated himself with his classmates, Ava, Caitlin, and Dylan, and co-exists with them on at least a frenemy-like basis. However, in the book series, Nolan is a bully who never hangs out with any of the main characters, except for Parker, with whom he actually had secret a relationship. (And that character isn’t even in the TV show.)

Show-Nolan can’t be all good, though, as he winds up impaled on a fence by the end of the first episode. Clearly, there are multiple people with possible motives for ending Nolan’s life, but who was brazen enough to actually go through with it?

In The Perfectionists book, the central characters Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker aren’t exactly friends in the beginning. However, they all come together when they realized how they’ve each been wronged by Nolan in the past. They jokingly plot to kill him, but never really intended to go through with it. It’s all the more shocking then, when he shows up dead in exactly the same way they’d discussed.

The major twist in The Perfectionists book comes at the end when the reader learns that two of the main characters, Parker and Julie, are actually the same person. According to Refinery 29, it turns out that Parker had been murdered by her abusive father from the beginning of the story. Julie, overcome with guilt that she didn’t let Parker sleep over the night her father killed her, invents a split personality called "Parker" to cope with her grief. It’s while she’s in her Parker state that Julie commits the murder, and is unable to remember any of it.

In the Freeform show, however, it looks like both Parker and Julie’s characters have been replaced with Pretty Little Liars alumna Alison DiLaurentis (played by Sasha Pieterse) and Mona Vanderwaal (played by Janel Parrish). It’s possible they could choose to transfer the split-personality storyline to Caitlin (played by Sydney Park) and Ava (played by Sofia Carson), or possibly even Alison and Mona, but it’s also possible they’ll go in a completely different route.

In the universe of Pretty Little Liars, you can never really rule out any options, no matter how outlandish they might seem. Who knows — maybe it’ll turn out that the body on the fence was only a decoy, and Nolan isn’t even dead at all…

The North Korean guidebook publisher is warning tourists about

PARIS — A French publisher has produced a rare guide to North Korea, highlighting its history, cultural wealth and beautiful landscapes but advising tourists not to take the politically sensitive book with them.

Tourism is one of the few remaining reliable sources of foreign income for North Korea, after the UN imposed sanctions targeting 90 percent of its $3 billion annual exports including commodities, textiles and seafood.

Tensions over North Korea’s tests of nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles spiked on the Korean peninsula last year and there were fears of a US military response to North Korea’s threat to develop a weapon capable of hitting the United States.

“There are a lot of people that are interested in this country be it for nuclear and military reasons, but also economically so … it’s important to provide information,” said Dominique Auzias, president of the Petit Fute, which publishes some 800 guides.

“As it’s a country that’s closed and forbidden, everybody dreams of going there,” he said.

Some 400 French tourists visit the country each year, with trips costing $2,267.

The reclusive communist state has no official diplomatic relations with France.

Talks in June last year between President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un provided a detente, even if in recent weeks tensions have once again flared.
