While in Boston Wednesday night, Prince William and Princess Kate were at a Celtics Game. They tweeted, “Let’s go Celtics lets go,” on their official royal twitter page, The Prince and Princess of Wales. Meanwhile, their visit has been overshadowed by racism at the Palace (again) with Prince William’s godmother under scrutiny for remarks she made in a conversation with a black woman at an event. And, while the Prince and Princess are here, Netflix has released the first trailer for the "Meghan & Harry" documentary series.  The timing is interesting, but it does premiere next week.

Ye, who has already lost billions of dollars because his anti-Semitic comments, has made things worse, if you ever thought that was possible, and it's sickening. In an interview with controversial “InfoWars” host Alex Jones. He said, "I see good things about Hitler, also. Every human being has value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler. I was thinking about Satan...whether it’s the Zionists or Hitler — it’s not the person. It’s Satan using the people, who are controlled by demonic forces.” Now, he’s been kicked off Twitter again, this time for posting an image of the Star of David with a swastika embedded in the middle of it. According to Page Six, Elon Musk tweeted the reasoning was that “he again violated our rule against incitement to violence. Account will be suspended.”

It’s trailer time, with a few films getting us excited about their upcoming installations. Here’s what you need to know;

- The fifth Indiana Jones movie will be called “Indiana Jones and The Dial Of Destiny” comes complete with Easter eggs from the franchise, along with some returning characters. Harrison Ford, who is 80, has said this will be his final go as Indiana Jones, and legendary composer John Williams, who is 90, has also said this film will probably be his last. Go out on a high note, right?

- “Guardians of The Galaxy: Volume 3” brings back Starlord (Chris Pratt), Drax (Dave Bautista), Gamora (Zoe Saldana), and Mantis (Pom Klementieff), along with Groot and Rocket (voiced by Bradley Cooper and Vin Diesel, respectively). “Guardians 3” is James Gunn’s swan song to the franchise, and presumably his last Marvel movie now that he is taking control of creative direction at rival superhero house DC.

- “Transformers: The Rise of the Beasts,” inspired by the ’90s ”Beast Wars” cartoon, stars Anthony Ramos and Dominique Fishback, with Michelle Yeoh and Pete Davidson taking on voice roles. Peter Cullen reprises his voice role as Optimus Prime, with other stars including Ron Perlman and Peter Dinklage joining the cast.

“Good Morning America” third hour hosts Amy Robach and TJ Holmes were back on TV together after news of their affair broke. They didn’t address it, but only came as close to it when Amy said, “It’s Friday eve,” and TJ added, “Who’s looking forward to the weekend?” to which Amy raised her hand, and said, “Of course we are!" Sources say their jobs are not at risk, especially considering they are already back on air. People reports “that there was no overlap” between Amy and TJ’s romance and their marriages, as some are implying. As a matter of fact, Amy and T.J. had planned to go public in a few weeks, after Amy's divorce from Andrew Shue would have been finalized, but they were caught off guard when they got busted by the Daily Mail. They hadn’t even told anyone yet. In the meantime, Amy has already deleted her Instagram, and her husband, Andrew Shue has scrubbed his Instagram of her in every way, US Magazine reports.

There’s been a lot of speculation surrounding the title of Duke of Edinburgh ever since Prince Phillip’s passing. The late Queen didn’t do anything about it, but it was expected that King Charles was going to give the title to his brother, Prince Edward. Prince Philip, the last to hold the title of Duke of Edinburgh, made it known that he wanted his title to go to his youngest son once Charles ascended the throne. But now, there’s a rumor that King Charles is planning to give it to his granddaughter, Princess Charlotte, according to Suggest.

The infamous Creel House in Georgia from "Stranger Things” which was recently put on the market for $1.5 million, is under agreement, according to TMZ. The home, which is featured in "Stranger Things" season 4 as the Creel family home and Vecna's lair in the Upside Down, was promoted as “probably not haunted.” Bummer, for some people.

Warner Bros. TV is talking about a Harry Potter TV series, according to Variety.

Lindsay Lohan has teamed up with Pepsi for their holiday campaign promoting “pilk,” based on the popular “dirty soda” from TikTok. Lindsay shared the ad, writing, “Partnering with Pepsi to announce Pilk and Cookies has been an incredible experience. As someone who loves the holiday season and embracing new traditions, I was thrilled to have a little bit of fun with Pepsi and their take on the dirty soda. For people learning about Pilk for the first time, I won’t lie to you when I say I was a bit skeptical when I first heard of this pairing, but after my first sip I was amazed at how delicious it was, so I’m very excited for the rest of the world to try it.”

Somebody in Ohio is a Twihard. FOX reports that the entire “Twilight” series is coming back to theaters near you this weekend, if you live in Ohio. They’re calling it the “‘Twas the Twilight Before Christmas” marathon. The films made $3.3 billion worldwide the first time around, according to cheatsheet.com. The author, Stephanie Meyer, is planning for more books in the “Twilight Saga” so it wouldn’t be the worst idea to catch up on the story now, if you haven’t seen it a thousand times on MTV already.

Ye was kicked off Twitter…again… this time for posting an anti-Semitic image, but before he got kicked off, he also threw his support behind Balenciaga. While some celebrities are posting photos and videos showing themselves throwing out or even burning their Balenciaga from their wardrobes, Ye wrote, “I stand by Balenciaga and denounce all witch hunts and I cancel cancel culture Jesus is King Ending trafficking doesn’t start or end with a fashion campaign for Christ Sake.” Balenciaga is under fire for a recent campaign, which showed questionable marketing involving children. He also posted a photo of NBA star Chris Paul and claimed Chris had been cheating with his now ex-wife, Kim Kardashian, writing, “I caught this guy with Kim.”
