How well do the cast of Young Sheldon know Australia

Published

Young Sheldon has proved to be an international hit, with Season 3 set to air on Nine and 9Now in Australia. We took the time to chat to the stars of the show and find out just how much they know about our country.

Lance Barber takes on Aussie slang

Here down under, we’re used to all kinds of words that Americans aren’t. From ‘crikey!’ to ‘tucker’, we put Lance Barber, who plays Sheldon Cooper’s father George Sr, to the test, to see just how much he knew about the lingo we use in Oz.

Watch the hilarious video above to see which terms he knows and which he struggles to identify.

Cast of Young Sheldon taste test Aussie snacks

We’ve all grown up knowing what Vegemite is (and have different ways of eating it — butter always!) and put Cheezels on our fingers in primary school, but these iconic snacks aren’t available everywhere.

The stars of Young Sheldon, from Iain Armitage (Sheldon Cooper) to Raegan Revord (Missy Cooper, Sheldon’s twin sister), tasted some these snacks, and their reactions might shock you. Watch the video to see all their reactions and all the snacks they tried.

Taking on an Aussie accent

They’ve identified the slang and tried the snacks, but can they nail our accent. Watch the video above to find out how they fared when trying their best Aussie accent.

Young Sheldon Season 3 begins on Channel Nine at 7:30pm tonight, with aired episodes available for catch up on 9Now.

I’m A 35-Year-Old Mother Of Two, And I Just Got Cheated On For The First Time In My Life

Published

on

This time, I did it differently. I let him come over one night when my kids were home. Ben is younger than me by a few years and he doesn’t have kids of his own, so I was utterly floored when he was at ease, helpful, and sweet. My 6-year-old son took an interest in him right away. My tween daughter mostly stayed in her room.

I watched Ben play with my son and laugh at his jokes. In passing, I mentioned some old construction items that were sitting on my porch and had been for months. They were too heavy for me to move. Without missing a beat, Ben recruited my son to help him carry them out into the garage. He’d always been helpful around my house. In fact, the first time I realized I liked him at all was when I left him in my backyard and ran upstairs to go to the bathroom. When I peaked out the window at him, he was trying to fix a slack line I’d bought for the kids but was struggling to hang correctly.

Watching him with my kid drew me closer to him. All in one night, I started to envision this person in my life. Not only did I have fun with him and feel lighter than I had in years when he was around, he seemed committed to me and to the realities of my life. “I want you and everything that comes with you,” he had told me the week earlier. I really believed that.

He was laughing at something my son was saying when his mother called to tell him that his father was actively dying and that he needed to come. I called him and Uber and he left my house sobbing.

I knew our relationship would change after that and I thought I was prepared. I’d been holding his hand and wiping his snot for months. I didn’t know just how much grief would change him. When he got quiet, I tried to be patient. I trusted that he was spending time with family. There was no doubt in my mind that we would get back to where we were or find somewhere new to move forward from in the wake of his father’s death.

He called me when he was driving down to the beach to meet his family. It was the longest we’d talked since his father had died and it felt good to reconnect. When I told him I loved him. He usually said it first. This time, he sort of mumbled it back.

When days passed without him answering a text, I got worried — that sick-to-your-stomach kind of intuition that saves you from ruining your life every so often. I knew his ex had been reaching out to him since his father had died. Like a modern, suspicious dating woman with a boyfriend gone quiet does, I paid his ex’s Instagram a visit.

She was with him at the beach… on a boat. Parasailing.

I wanted to laugh and cry and vomit all at once. I rage texted him to never talk to me again. He wrote back some uncaring apology. “I never meant to hurt you.” But I was so full of anger I didn’t know what to do with myself. I was at home, making his mother a casserole. He had only just met my kids. And he was on a boat in Ocean City, Maryland with his ex.

In my whole life, I’d never been cheated on before. I had been so unsuspecting. I had trusted someone I barely knew, really. But I’ve been told not to beat myself up for that. This is what women do, though, don’t we? We blame ourselves when men treat us badly. Of course I trusted him. He hadn’t given me a reason not to. His horrible choices are not mine to carry.

Here is what is mine to carry: I took him back.

A few weeks went by and he started texting me. I knew it would happen — he’d left the relationship so quickly. He couldn’t have had closure. He couldn’t have forgotten me so fast. We’d gone from a full blown relationship that was some kind of bliss to nothing at all. And as hard as it had been for me to not reach out, the fact that I knew he was with someone else is what prevented me from doing it.

When he said all the right things, things I’d been dying to hear, I felt relieved. Like everything I had believed about him hadn’t been wrong. Maybe he was just hurting so badly that it drove him to make this one mistake. Maybe I could learn to trust him again.

After a week of pressing me, telling me how much he missed me — missed talking to me and kissing me — I let him come over. At first I sat angrily with my arms crossed. I wouldn’t let him come near me. Then, he told me how much he’d been thinking about me. He said I was all he could think about. Then, before I knew it we were laughing, playing. And I forgot that he had left me and how he had done it. I forgot there was another person involved at all.

A few times during the night, I cried. We’d be lost in some intimate moment and then, I’d remember. He’d hug me and reassure me. At one point, he looked at me and said, “you know I’m still so in love with you.” She wasn’t a thought in his head. She was a mistake made out of grief and the need for something familiar. He and I were what was real.

There were real questions, though. Mine and his. Mine had to do with whether I’d ever be able to trust him. He was worried about whether he was truly ready for my two kids. Even more challenging, he wanted a baby of his own.

They were huge, pressing issues — issues I couldn’t run away from. I didn’t want any more kids. I’m 35 and my two are more than plenty. I felt bitter that again, this might be the thing that scares someone away. It doesn’t matter if they are the wrong man. It still hurts when someone you love uses your kids as a reason not to be with you, even if they don’t say it out-loud.

It sounds ridiculous, but when he told me he was staying with her, I was more shocked than before. I think I imagined that no one would come back, just to hurt you again. This time, it was worse because it was partially my fault. I’d opened myself up to him again. I’d chosen to be trusting. I saw so much good in him and in us. And, I believed that his grief had a hold on him and the choices he was making.

In the end, it doesn’t matter why he did it, or why he chose someone younger, with no kids, who he doesn’t have to grow up for. Maybe he was in a place of wanting to step up when we met. After his father passed, he didn’t want to be his best self anymore. He wanted to cling to the past in any way that he could. But that’s not my story to write.

 

My story is about moving forward, and moving on, again, even though I wasn’t ready to. I have done it so many times since my separation three years ago. It is harder than I’d have expected and it does not get easier. Being tossed aside feels just as gutting now as it did when I was 16. Only now, I don’t have time to fall apart. I cry when my kids aren’t home and then I put on my happy face. Sometimes the distraction is good. But we all need time to grieve the people we lose.

The silver lining is that after so many broken hearts, now I know I will always come back to myself. I know I’ll breathe easy again and I know I’ll fall in love. I’m not running out of hope for that. I just hope that the next time I fall, it’s with someone who really does want me and everything that comes with me.

It sure sounds nice to hear. But it’s so much better when it’s true.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Finally Bought a House

Published

on

Over the last year, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have lived in multiple homes in three different countries, ranging from Frogmore Cottage—the Windsor home they received as a gift from Queen Elizabeth—to a luxurious waterfront home on Vancouver Island in Canada. But according to Page Six, they’re finally putting down roots in the United States, five months after moving due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On Wednesday, the outlet reported that the couple bought a home in Santa Barbara, an hour and a half northwest of downtown Los Angeles, and have been living there since July. “It has been a very special time for them as a couple and as a family—to have complete privacy for six weeks since they moved in,” a source said. “They intend to put down their roots in this house and the quiet community, which has considerable privacy. This is where they want to bring Archie up, where they hope he can have as normal a life as possible.” Meghan and Harry’s spokesperson confirmed the move to the outlet.

The source didn’t reveal any details about the house or what the first-time homebuyers paid, but said they were planning to stay for a while. “They have thought about this carefully and researched it well. This is the place where they plan to be happy, make good friends and bring up Archie, giving him the chance to play with other children his age.”

It does mean that they’re forgoing the palatial and distinctive mansion that they borrowed from Tyler Perry, but Page Six’s source said that it’s for the better. “While it was a nice favor to them at a very difficult time, Tyler Perry’s house with 18 bedrooms isn’t Harry’s style,” they said. “Yes, he grew up in royalty and the halls of Buckingham Palace, but he prefers more intimate homes with character.” The source added that they were already in the process of buying the home when they filed a lawsuit against paparazzi for photographing them on Perry’s property. 

Even before the couple announced their plans to leave the royal family, they were looking at properties in the Los Angeles area. Last September, sources told Vanity Fair that they were trying to buy in Calabasas, but by February, Caitlyn Jenner claimed she heard rumors that their hunt had moved to Malibu.

‘The Crown’ Casts Jonathan Pryce as Prince Philip

Published

on

The Crown has a new Prince Philip. Game of Thrones actor and Oscar nominee Jonathan Pryce is set to appear in both Seasons 5 and 6 as Queen Elizabeth’s husband, Variety reports.

The actor is taking over the role from Tobias Menzies, who played the prince in Season 3 and Season 4, which is set to premiere on Netflix later this year. Matt Smith previously held the role in Seasons 1 and 2. When Pryce joins The Crown for Season 5, he will be accompanied by Imelda Staunton, the series’ next Queen Elizabeth, and Lesley Manville, Season 5’s Princess Margaret.

Pryce earned an Oscar nomination this year for his role in The Two Popes, playing Pope Francis alongside Anthony Hopkins‘ Pope Benedict. He’s also appeared in Glengarry Glen Ross and Tomorrow Never Dies, and more recently played High Sparrow on Game of Thrones. 

While the fourth upcoming season of The Crown is due later in 2020, fans will have to wait a while to see Pryce in his Season 5 role. The show is taking a filming break — pre-planned and unrelated to the coronavirus pandemic — and won’t be back for its fifth season until 2022, since Netflix won’t being filming until June of next year.

Creator Peter Morgan originally said that Season 5 would be the final installment of The Crown, but he pleased fans when he revealed last month that the show would continue for Season 6, which will be its last season.

“As we started to discuss the storylines for Series 5, it soon became clear that in order to do justice to the richness and complexity of the story we should go back to the original plan and do six seasons,” he said at the time. “To be clear, Series 6 will not bring us any closer to present-day – it will simply enable us to cover the same period in greater detail.”
