Happy Saturday! Exciting news here, rumor has it one of the Goodwills is accepting donations again, yaaaaaaaay! I’ve got a pile of donations, and a pile or recycling, that has just been sitting in my apartment. Today is the day I go up and down and up and down the stairs and get rid of all of it.
Things to talk about!
Nawazuddin Divorce/Pedophilia Update
Well, Nawazuddin’s niece has now given her full story and it passes the smell test for me, and feels depressingly familiar. Her uncle started treating her as special and molesting her when she was 9. At 17, she started telling him “no”. One night he broke into her bedroom and beat her. She told her boyfriend, he suggested they elope, they had a registry marriage and she never went home again. Since then, her family cut her off. Her husband is supportive (that’s nice), and helped her file the case against her uncle.
You know who this reminds me of? Eleanor Roosevelt. No really. There was a book on the Roosevelts I read that included a story of how when she was a teenager, she was an orphan living in the family home and she had to put things in front of her bedroom door at night because her drunk uncles would come back in the middle of the night and rattle the doorknob and try to get in, and it scared her. And then Franklin proposed, and it seemed like a way to get safely out of the house, so she married him. Teenage girls living with uncles is not always a safe thing, no matter who you are, even if you are Eleanor Roosevelt and one of your non-drunk uncles is literally the President of the United States.
Kareena’s Instagram is Delightful
I’ve been missing out by not checking it! For instance, check out this post about Inaaya making a family tree:
Or here is Taimur watching Kiaan (Karisma’s son) so they can be together through Skype.
Her Mother’s Day post
And for Karan’s birthday, a delightfully awkward old photo
Oh, and one final thing! There is a rumor going around that I do not believe for a second that Shahrukh will play a reporter in Maddy’s rocket movie. If this is true, will Shahrukh be sexier than Maddy or vice versa when they share screen space?
