J.K. Rowling Says The New Harry Potter Book Will DEFINITELY Make You Cry — But She Has A Good Reason!
Get ready to feel!
We've got a lot of Harry Potter-verse things coming our way this year between Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opening in the fall and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child opening in London as well as the script being published in book form!
Whether you plan on checking out the play or reading the book when both debut July 31, you better have a tissue box ready!
One HP fan took to Twitter to ask author J.K. Rowling whether the play and book would be a tearjerker tweeting:
Whitney Cummings Opens Up About Her Eating Disorder & Reveals She 'Almost Exclusively Ate Sugar-Free Twizzlers and Diet Sunkist!'
Whitney Cummings is getting super honest about some serious struggles!
On Tuesday, the gorgeous gal announced through People that she'll be releasing a book documenting some shocking issues she's gone through during her life.
The funny lady revealed that her first memoir, I'm Fine … And Other Lies, will be all about some of her more scandalous life experiences, saying:
"I always told myself I would wait to write a book until I had accumulated enough humiliating mistakes to actually make the read worth your time. I've dated a gay guy, had my hair fall out from not eating enough fat, put family members in rehab, and come very close to spending my life in a Guatemalan prison. I've also accumulated a compendium of knowledge that can save you a lot of time."
The 33-year-old also explained that, even though she looks happy and healthy now, she suffered from an eating disorder for a while, adding:
And her current battle with depression.
In a new interview with Us Weekly, the 21-year-old revealed she's been suffering from prenatal depression, and divulged how the symptoms have been since becoming pregnant six weeks ago:
"My depression affects my appetite, sleeping patterns and overall perspective on life. At times, I have severe insomnia and other times I find myself sleeping too much. I have feelings of hopelessness but experience many moments of absolute euphoria."
The momma-to-be, who is also taking Xanax to treat her anxiety, continued:
"I already love this baby so much. I just fear the thought of motherhood. It's such an overwhelming responsibility and I want to be the very best mommy that I can possibly be."
Court touched upon feeling overwhelmed back when she made the announcement two weeks ago. Luckily though, she's been able to put her feelings down on paper.
The sisters, who previously "penned" the dystopian story Rebels: City of Indra — with the help of ghost writer Maya Sloan — have decided that we haven't heard the last of Lex and Livia!
On Monday, publisher Regan Arts announced that the gorgeous gals are following up their first book with a new sequel, titled Time of the Twins: The Story of Lex and Livia.
Co-written by Elizabeth Killmond-Roman and Katherine Killmond, the new novel follows the fictional sisters as they "are forced to escape the city of Indra, which had been their home and their prison" and track down their mother, who they thought was dead.
The 18-year-old revealed the latest addition to their book franchise is all about the characters:
Chillin' with the homie Ernest!
The 35-year-old wrote:
"I can't stop thinking about the family trip we took to Cuba. When I posed in front of this amazing pink car, we were outside Ernest Hemingway's house. We took a tour and it was SO fascinating. He bought a Picasso for less than $100! Can you imagine what it's worth now?! The home hasn't been touched since he shot himself inside. All of his original old magazines are still there; everything is—his furniture, art, clothes. It was fascinating to see."
A Picasso for less than $100?! What a steal!
While these snaps are pretty dope, we totally can't wait to see their shenanigans on TV!

In Lena's latest edition of Lenny Letter, the actress revealed the release of her latest book, Is It Evil Not To Be Sure? — a collection of personal stories dating back to when she was barely 20 years old.
Ms. Dunham collected the material from her old journals while recuperating from surgery to correct her endometriosis.
Speaking on the content of her exciting new book, L.D. gushed:
J.K. Rowling Defends Donald Trump's Right To Say 'Offensive And Bigoted' Things! Read Her Shady Defense Of Free Speech!
Leave it to the most successful author of all time to craft such a backhanded defense of Donald Trump!
At the 2016 PEN Literary Awards Gala in New York on Monday, humanitarian award recipient J.K. Rowling gave a speech in which she actually defended the man she once compared to Voldemort!
Of course, the Harry Potter author was really defending freedom of speech in general — and pretty much bashing "bigot" Donald.
In reference to the petition to keep the Republican Presidential candidate from visiting the U.K., she said:
