People: Prince William, Kate Middleton, Khloe Kardashian Odom, Bruce Jenner, Jeffrey Donovan
Prince William and expectant Kate have started their royal Christmas celebrations, People reports.
The Duke and Duchess enjoyed a private lunch with their household staff in London on Tuesday, a St. James's Palace spokesman confirmed.
The festivities took place at Bumpkin in the Notting Hill neighborhood, and the group dined in the restaurant's "Queen's Room," which features a large portrait of Queen Elizabeth.
Earlier this week, Kate stepped out for her first official engagement since being hospitalized for severe morning sickness.
The question remains about where the royal couple will spend the Christmas holiday.
They may keep with tradition and go to Sandringham House in Norfolk, where they celebrated last year, to be with the Queen and the rest of the royal family. Or they may spend the holiday in Bucklebury, Berkshire, with the Middleton family.
nEnraged over Instagram's drastic policy change? You're not alone, E! News reports.
The popular photo-sharing site announced a new intellectual-property policy Monday, which takes effect Jan. 16, granting the now Facebook-owned company the perpetual right to sell users' photographs without compensation or notification.
Translation? That gorgeous sunset photo you took last Tuesday could end up in a nice California ad campaign, and you won't be notified or paid for the use of your shot.
Well, celebs certainly seem to think so, and a slew of dissatisfied stars have taken to Twitter to share their anger.
Khloe Kardashian Odom: "Wow ... I just read over Instagram's new policy ... so sad, looks like I might be deleting my instagram after Jan 16. I hope something changes"
Jordin Sparks: "YIKES! Bye instagram."
Kevin Hart: "So I guess this means that I'm done with Instagram ..... it's been real people!!! #DontWhoreMeOut"
Anderson Cooper: "#Instagram will now be able to use anyone's photos in ads? Without consent? Come on! Is there another photo app people recommend?
Rosario Dawson: "Nice! Thanks! Gonna make sure my photos on Instagram are backed up & then switch to Tadaa! @Stop_Think_plz just created an account on tadaa!"
Kal Penn: "Sorry I gotta delete you, Instagram. I liked your filters."
Natasha Bedingfield: "Bummer"
Michelle Branch: "Bummer about Instagram. Where will I post all my food pics now!? Haha. #RIPInstagram"
Rob Delaney: "Wait, I didn't even post this! Instagram went INTO my phone & is TAKING photos?? http://instagr.am/p/MJuai7hhcm/"
The horrific tragedy that unfolded in Newtown, Conn., last week hit close to home for Bruce Jenner, E! News reports.
"Not in a million years would you ever think that this quiet little town would have such a terrible, terrible tragedy happen there," the Olympic gold medalist and graduate of Newtown High School said in reaction to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that left 20 children dead. "You just can't believe it."
Jenner's sister attended kindergarten at Sandy Hook, and Newtown High's stadium bears his name.
Jenner says that he first heard about the shooting on TV, like most everybody else, and it took him a moment to realize that it was Sandy Hook the newscasters were talking about.
The E! star's son Burt is named after his younger brother, who was killed in a car accident not long after Jenner won his gold medal at the 1976 Summer Olympics. He says the loss of his sibling was "devastating," but that what happened to those children is "unimaginable."
He's been in touch with his sister and his mom, and they were both as shocked and saddened as he was by the tragedy that unfolded.
Says Jenner: "I just get mad inside at humanity sometimes and how a twisted mind can be so evil."
Jeffrey Donovan has a lovely little new co-star in his life -- a baby girl!
The "Burn Notice" star, 44, and his wife Michelle are proud parents of their first child, a rep for Donovan tells People.
"She is a healthy and happy baby girl, and we are incredibly blessed to have her in our lives," the couple say in a statement.
No other details, including the girl's name, were immediately available.
A special two-hour season finale of "Burn Notice," guest starring Sonja Sohn and Alex Carter, airs Thursday at 9 p.m. on USA.
Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill has been barred from touring for a month after a judge found he violated probation restrictions associated with a 2008 drug and gun conviction, the AP reports.
Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley said Monday the rapper, whose real name is Robert Williams, violated an order restricting his performance scheduling and failing to properly keep in touch with his probation officer.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reports Williams' attorney argued the restrictions were preventing him from earning a living. Gary Silver said Williams didn't need to check in with his probation officer because his fans frequently take pictures of him when he's touring.
Williams' "Dreams & Nightmares" album debuted in October. He appeared in Jay-Z's Made In America festival earlier this year.
