Over the weekend, Thomas Markle continued to stir up drama with the royal family, the Kardashians attempted to settle their feud, Riverdale swept the Teen Choice Awards and Idris Elba addressed those new James Bond rumors.
Here's your look at the biggest headlines from the weekend!
During the conversation, Thomas reportedly told Harry, 33, that he "was being measured for a hoodie," in the pictures in question. In a reported second phone call following Thomas' heart attack, he claims that Harry said, "If you had listened to me, this would never have happened." Thomas says he fired back, exclaiming, "Maybe it would be better for you guys if I was dead… then you could pretend to be sad." Meghan's dad then alleges that he hung up on Harry.
In Sunday's episode, Kim and Khloe claim that Kourtney's new therapist and then-boyfriend -- she and Younes Bendjima have since called it quits -- had turned her into "a different person." In therapy, Kourtney revealed that she thinks her sisters aren't happy for her and that their work commitments are more important. It turns out work is a big area of contention for the siblings, Kim lamenting in the confessional that Kourtney "can’t commit to filming a season and sharing her life if she’s not going to at all."
Kanye West Says He'd "Smash" His Sisters-in-Laws in New Song: The 41-year-old rapper surprised fans with a new song on Friday, in which he reveals he's had less than brotherly thoughts about wife Kim Kardashian West's four sisters. "You got sick thoughts? I got more of ’em/ You got a sister-in-law you would smash? I got four of them. D*mn, those is your sisters. You did something unholy to them pictures," Kanye raps in the opening lines of "XTCY," referring to Kylie and Kendall Jenner as well as Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian.
Fittingly, the track's artwork is a picture of all five women celebrating Kylie's 21st birthday last week.
Idris Elba Addresses James Bond Casting Rumors: The 45-year-old actor took to Twitter on Sunday to continue speculation that he'll play James Bond in an upcoming film. "My name's Elba, Idris Elba," he wrote alongside a heavily-filtered image of his forehead. Fans didn't get too much of a chance to celebrate, though. Elba followed up with a second tweet that read, "Don't believe the HYPE..."
Though there's been talk about him taking on the role of 007 for years, interest was piqued again last week after director Antoine Fuqua told the Daily Star that he had spoken with EON Productions' Barbara Broccoli, who said "it is time" for James Bond to be played by a black actor. The franchise's 25th installment is due out on Nov. 8, 2019 and is set to star the most recent Bond, Daniel Craig.
