Published

Meghan Markle is said to be riddled with dread over the news that the unsparingly critical BBC Panorama reporter Tom Bower has signed a deal to write a biography about the controversial duchess, Express reports.

Previous boldfaced names to be subjected to the oft poison pen that Tom Bower will now apply to Meghan Markle include Simon Cowell, Gordon Brown and Richard Branson.

Tom Bower is expected to not so much dig up dirt on Meghan Markle as conduct a thorough excavation of her past, scouring the earth for information from her friends and enemies alike.

“This is the book Meghan will be dreading,” warned an inside source.

“No stone will be left unturned.”

The source cautioned Meghan Markle that Tom Bower “doesn’t pull his punches and is terrifyingly thorough in his research.”

The source added that Tom Bower “has previously worked with some of his subjects, and even spent time trailing them, but it has been made perfectly clear to him that this will not be an option with Meghan [Markle].”

The Sun spoke with a source who insisted that Meghan “wants no part” of the book.

That particular source continued: “Given the events of recent weeks and months, this book will be dynamite – he reckons this is just the tip of the iceberg, and more will emerge over the next 12 months.”

News of the as yet untitled book comes following the controversial publication of their sycophantic “unofficially authorised” biography, Finding Freedom, which was written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.

Meghan Markle ‘will dread’ new book by feared celeb biographer Tom Bower who has signed six-figure deal

Meghan Markle should take note that when it came to skewering Cowell in his biography of the American Idol star, Tom Bower revealed to the world that the TV host had a torrid affair with former X Factor judge Dannii Minogue.

The Daily Mail reports that Tom Bower has signed a six-figure deal for this book on Meghan Markle.

Following a reported bidding war, publishing giant Simon & Schuster acquired the rights. 

Tom Bower’s research period is expected to take a year, so Meghan Markle has plenty of time to reportedly fret the tome’s contents.

It is expected that Bower will interview members of Meghan’s estranged family, including father Thomas. He will also speak with former Palace staff, The Sun reported, to glean information about how Meghan treated employees.

Thomas Markle has notoriously been only too eager to blab about Meghan to the press, so it is highly likely that he’ll spill his guts about his estranged daughter again.

Bower published “The Rebel Prince” in 2018, which was an exploration of Prince Charles’ tortured experience in the aftermath of his ex-wife Princess Diana’s violent demise in a car crash in 1997.

Last summer, a pair of authors released the book “Finding Freedom” about Meghan and Prince Harry’s efforts to extricate themselves from senior royal life.

News.com.au reports that Simon & Schuster has remained tight lipped about its deal with Bower. 

A spokesperson for Simon & Schuster declined to comment.

A 53-year-old man died Saturday after jumping from the Staten Island Ferry into the chilly waters of New York Harbor, police said.

NYPD Harbor launch officers pulled the man out of the water after responding to reports of a jumper near the Whitehall Ferry Terminal in Manhattan at around 2 p.m.

“He jumped off the ferry as it pulled away from the dock,” an NYPD spokesman told The Post. He jumped off the Ferryboat Andrew J. Barberi, police said.

The unidentified victim was removed to Pier 11 and transported to New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 3:10 p.m.

A newsstand worker said there were “about 50 or so emergency people” at Pier 11 following a valiant effort — which included CPR — to save the man’s life.

Kemp Lashes M.L.B. as Republicans Defend Georgia’s Voting Law

Published

Mr. Kemp, who is gearing up to run for re-election in 2022, has striven to re-enter the good graces of Republican voters after becoming a central political target of former President Donald J. Trump because of his refusal to help Mr. Trump overturn the state’s election results last year. A former secretary of state of Georgia who has his own record of decisions that made voting harder for the state’s residents, he is again a key G.O.P. voice leading the charge on the issue.

On Saturday, he repeatedly tried to paint the league’s decision as driven by Stacey Abrams, the voting rights advocate and former Democratic candidate for governor in Georgia who is seen as likely to challenge Mr. Kemp again next year.

Ms. Abrams, one of the most prominent critics of Georgia’s voting law, has pushed back on calls for sports leagues and corporations to boycott the state. She said on Friday that she was “disappointed” baseball officials had pulled the All-Star Game but that she was “proud of their stance on voting rights.”

In defending the law in Georgia, Mr. Kemp singled out two Democratically controlled states, New York and Delaware, and compared their voting regulations with the new law in Georgia. Those states do not offer as many options for early voting as Georgia does, but they have also not passed new laws instituting restrictions on voting.

“In New York, they have 10 days of early voting,” Mr. Kemp said (New York actually has nine). “In Georgia, we have a minimum of 17, with two additional Sundays that are optional in our state. In New York, you have to have an excuse to vote absentee. In Georgia, you can vote absentee for any reason.”
