THE OTHER STUFF . . .
Prince Harry Racked Up a $38,000 Bill on Infamous Naked Las Vegas Trip -- But Never Had to Pay It! Once upon his wild, wild ways! Before marrying Duchess Meghan, Prince Harry made headlines for his 2012 antics in Las Vegas that led to leaked nude photos. Years later, more details have emerged about the 34-year-old former military pilot's crazy weekend -- including that he racked up a bill of more than 30,000 (or roughly $38,000 in American currency), according to the Daily Mail Opens a New Window. on Saturday, February 16. The outlet reports that Harry: Life, Loss, and Love author Katie Nicholl revealed during a Channel 5 documentary titled Spending Secrets of the Royals that Harry never ended up paying the outrageous amount of money as the hotel owner, Steve Wynn, waived the bill when the royal went to settle it. Photos of the Duke of Sussex completely in the buff after playing a game of strip pool surfaced in August 2012 after he spent a booze-filled weekend in Vegas. "This is a mess," an insider told Us Weekly of the photos at the time. "This was not the type of fun he was supposed to be having. He's in trouble." Shortly after, a senior military source also noted that Harry -- who was a helicopter pilot in the service when the scandal hit -- would be "reprimanded" by the army. As for his brother, Prince William, a source noted that he was "not impressed." Flash forward more than seven years later and Harry's life is drastically different than his party days. He tied the knot to the former Suits actress, 37, in May 2018 after announcing their engagement in November 2017. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are currently awaiting the arrival of their first child who is due this spring. Harry and Meghan announced the happy news of their growing brood in October 2018. "Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Sussex is expecting a baby in the Spring of 2019," a statement from Kensington Palace read at the time. "Their Royal Highnesses have appreciated all of the support they have received from people around the world since their wedding in May and are delighted to be able to share this happy news with the public." The soon-to-be parents are also gearing up for another big change in their lives -- a move out of their current residence at Nottingham Cottage in London to Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, England. A source told Us in November 2018 that the home was a gift from Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II. "There are 10 bedrooms, and the cottage does need some updating and renovations," an insider told Us of the couple's new digs. "It's much bigger than Nottingham cottage, which only had two bedrooms and was very tight." (UsMagazine)
Jenna Dewan's boyfriend is stepping up to the plate, proving he's daddy material by enjoying/surviving a day at Disneyland with her 5-year-old girl. The actress hit up the Happiest Place on Earth Saturday with BF Steve Kazee and Everly, her daughter with Channing Tatum. Everly got the cush stroller ride around the park with potential-future-stepdad Steve on push duty. Jenna, Steve and Everly seemed to have a great time riding rides and goofing around, and looked totally comfortable with their new family dynamic ... in the wake of Jenna and Channing's split. That's not to say Channing and Jenna can't get together from time to time for the sake of their daughter -- they did exactly that this past Halloween, posing together for a selfie while taking Everly trick-or-treating. Successful post-divorce co-parenting has become a thing in Hollywood -- Chris Pratt and Anna Faris most recently got it down pat ... and Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have been at it for years. We're all here for this trend. (TMZ)
This'll make Grandma Kris happy -- Kim, Khloe and Kylie are expanding the family business ... adding their brood to the mix. The Kardashian-Jenner sisters have filed docs to trademark the names of their kids -- Saint, North and Chicago West along with True Thompson and Stormi Webster. In docs, obtained by TMZ, their mommas say they want to slap the kids' names on a number of products ... including a clothing line, toys and skin care products. Kylie in particular also filed a trademark for "Stormiworld" -- no big mystery what inspired that move, but safe to say Stormi could take after mom or dad. What's more ... the fam wants the ability to sign endorsement deals to pimp others' products, although the application doesn't list specifics. Welcome to the family biz, kids. Now get to work! (TMZ)

Colin Kaepernick is far from a sellout by settling with the NFL -- because he shed an important spotlight along the way that won't soon be forgotten ... so says Common. We got the rapper leaving WeHo Sunday, where we asked what he thought of the ex-QB recently coming to terms with the NFL out of court. Common's got nothing but good things to say about Kap here and gives a good reason why he hasn't compromised his principles. According to Common ... Kaepernick exposed the NFL and its owners through his collusion case and thoroughly highlighted what Common considers exploitative practices over their black players. He says nothing can take away from the work CK's done on that front. When our photog asks point blank if his settlement -- which is rumored to be in the $100 million range -- makes him a sellout, Common shoots that notion down hard. He tells us standing up for what you believe in is never a sell-out move. (TMZ)
