Insta Creep: Olivia Jade Has Returned To Instagram Following The College Admissions Scandal…
What all the celebs are up to on social, from A to Z listers.
In our gossip column, we indulge our nosiest desires and delve deep into what the celebs (and ‘celebs’) are doing on social media. Who’s tweeting and deleting? Who’s shady faving? Let’s find out.
Meghan Markle is set to create a capsule range of workwear in aid of a very good cause.
The Duchess of Sussex is royal patron of the charity Smart Works, which supports unemployed women entering or returning to work, giving them the skills and clothing they need to feel confident on the job.
Announcing the project on the Sussex Royal Instagram account, it was explained that Meghan felt the donated clothes weren’t always up to scratch:
Throughout her visits she noticed that while donations were plentiful, they were also notably a combination of mismatched items and colours which weren’t always the right stylistic choices, or sizes that didn’t necessarily ‘suit’ the job at hand: to make a woman feel confident and inspired as she walked into her job interview.
The Duchess will work with four brands – Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Jigsaw and Misha Nonoo – to create a collection of ‘key workwear essentials’, with an item donated for every one that’s bought.
“Not only does this allow us to be part of each other’s story; it reminds us we are in it together,” said Meghan of the partnership. What a lady.
Olivia Jade Giannulli has broken her Instagram silence for the first time since the college admissions scandal to wish her mum Lori Loughlin a happy birthday.
The Full House actress and her husband were accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters into college – one of those daughters, Olivia Jade, is a social media star with a massive following who frequently posted about college life.
Since the news broke, she’s been quiet on Insta and YouTube, and even lost contracts with big brands like Sephora (she’s maintained her 1.4m Instagram followers, though). For her first post since the whole ordeal began, she chose a throwback photo of herself and Lori:
“One day late. Happy birthday. I love you so much.”
Seems like if she was raging with her mam for all that’s gone on, she’s over it now. Lori rejected the plea deal that the other parents (including Desperate Housewives star Felicity Huffman) accepted, and could face up to 40 years in prison if convicted.
Love Island’s Lucie Donlan liked an Instagram comment saying Tommy Fury ‘missed out’ by not coupling up with her.
Tommy and Lucie had a bumpy relationship in the villa – he competed with Joe for her affections, she picked Joe, they became really good friends, then all of a sudden she admitted she actually had romantic feelings for him.
Tommy was very happy with Molly-Mae, of course, so Lucie left the villa with her feelings unrequited.
As of right now, Tommy and Molly are boyfriend and girlfriend, but Lucie still seems to be holding a candle for him. Under an Instagram video of her skateboarding in a bikini, a fan wrote:
Tommy’s jaw will hit the floor when he sees what he’s missed out on, said it from the beginning she was the most beautiful and natural girl in there.
And Lucie has liked said comment – perhaps without actually reading it, but it’s enough to add fuel to the fire. Oh dear.
Were you wondering how that influencer whose ‘surprise’ proposal went viral was doing? Allow us to update you.
Back in June, fashion influencer Marissa Fuchs’s boyfriend organised a ‘surprise’ proposal that took her across the US and abroad. As it unspooled on Instagram, it was revealed that a ‘pitch deck’ had been sent to brands in advance to give them the chance to sponsor the whole sodding thing (click here for the full story).
Anyway, after being the Internet’s enemy for a day, Marissa returned after a month of Instagram to announce that they had gotten married in Paris, and that she didn’t expect “the ‘for better, for worse’ part of our marriage to come so quickly”.

Thank you to everyone who was part of my fairytale moment with Gabe. We didn't expect the "for better, for worse" part of marriage to come so quickly but c'est la vie! I married my lifelong love, surrounded by people we love, and that is all that matters. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all of your kind wishes and notes of support. Now back to our regularly scheduled programming…. ?
Her following hasn’t taken much of a hit, but according to Page Six, she’s being ‘exiled’ from the influencer inner circle.
A source told the gossip column that she was ‘turned away’ from a fancy event in the Hamptons – however, the organisers say that it was a dinner with a set capacity, and she wasn’t invited anyway. Oof. We’d say most of those doing the exiling are just glad it wasn’t them who was caught. Onwards, Marissa.
Have your say
