DETAILS ON MEGHAN MARKLE’S ISSUES WITH KATE MIDDLETON: As Finding Freedom, a biography by royal reporters Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand threatens to blow open the Palace’s top secrets, more people are spilling the beans about the rumored feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton. "I was always told that there was never a catfight as such, between the two girls. I was told there hadn't been a fallout over anything specific. I was told that they simply didn't click, that they didn't have a huge amount in common," royal expert Katie Nicholl tells ET. "And this seems to be reinforced in the book, that apparently Kate felt they have nothing more in common than the fact that they lived at the same palace." She continued, adding that Meghan and Prince Harry felt she didn’t get a proper welcome from Kate and Prince William: "They invited her out for for drinks and they obviously hosted the couple the Christmas after their engagement where apparently Kate made an effort in the kitchen to cook Meghan's favorite vegan meals. Clearly the Cambridges feel that they did try, but obviously, Meghan and Harry feel that they didn't try enough and I was told from a source very close to Prince Harry that they didn't feel they have rolled out the red carpet."
BETHENNY FRANKEL DOESN’T GET THE FAN OBSESSION: Bethenny Frankel has no desire to return to Real Housewives of New York, she told Fortune in a recent interview. She admits that fans feel quite differently. “I honestly am stunned,” she said. “I haven’t been watching. I saw the first episode and part of another one, so I don’t know what’s going on there. There’s a lot of talk about what’s going on there, and I read comments that people say to me, ‘Please come back,’ and ‘Please save the show.’ It’s all flattering, and I wish the girls well. I’m doing other things though, and I just don’t know how that really would fit into my life as is.”
