Eddie can’t stand to be around Cebile and yearns for a life with Raisibe, but Raisibe has no place for him.
A JOHN KELLY tell-all? Kendall Jenner on Capitol Hill? Here’s what we predict will make news in the coming year. Who’s up next on the rock star bookshelf? We think John Kelly, President Donald
Trump’s longest-serving chief of staff, which is saying a lot, has many stories to tell.
The man played an outsize role in other people’s books, from calling the president an “idiot” (according to Wolff) to giving Omarosa the boot (according to Omarosa), so it’s high time he controlled his own narrative. The public is waiting.
With a presidential election looming, 2019 will probably be the year when Cory Booker (49) and Cleo Wade (29) make it or break it. Booker, the junior Democratic senator from New York, is an unofficially official contender for the race to the White House, and Wade, an Instagram poet and author, is popular with millennials. If they take the leap, it’ll be a power move that dominates headlines.
Who will be the next member of the Kardashian clan to bring reality-tv cameras to Washington? We’re going with Kendall Jenner, the supermodel sister, who opened up about having panic attacks. Big names – Carson Daly, Michael Phelps – have been outspoken about anxiety disorders. We smell an A-list delegation and a news conference brewing. Our money is on special advisers to the president, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner.
While they’re the rare staffers to have embraced Washington, the city hasn’t returned the favour.
Though loyalists who have photogenically weathered the Trump storm, they might be at the end of their ropes.
Which surprise famous person will be an early Hollywood surrogate? Kim Kardashian is basically a Washingtonian. What about Ariana Grande? (The Thank U, Next campaign slogans alone? We mean, c’mon.)
Not to mention, in the music video for the single, the pop star, pretending to be iconic law student Elle Woods, can be seen reading from the legal tome Immigration and Refugee Law and Policy.
There’s no doubt 2019 will have its own “ripped from the headlines” movies in theatres.
While the 2016 presidential election wasn’t that long ago, a behind-the-scenes look at how it all went down would be a smart move. Alec Baldwin and the cast of Saturday Night Live are probably writing the script.
West is probably the one celebrity no politician wants at their rally. But the hip hop icon has his opinions, and his wife, Kim, is a bona fide policymaker now, so Ye ain’t going away. A great target for West’s tweetstorms? Andrew Gillum. The rising political star and former mayor of Tallahassee is a fellow Gen Xer who is trying to buck the system. Diddy and DJ Khaled love him so why not Ye?
Michelle Obama basically rewrote the book on book tours last year but someone else has to take the crown, right? Former Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens and former House speaker John Boehner have memoirs on the horizon.
What about former president George W Bush who has become a pop culture figure with his mint candies and modern paintings? Maybe this is a stretch. Mrs O will probably be wearing that crown: her arena tour has been extended to May.
