kate middleton prank suicide notes revealed jacintha saldanha teased

Australian radio DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian worst fears have come true!

Jacintha Saldanha's reasons for taking her own life are coming into focus, and it's clear the infamous Kate Middleton hoax weighed HEAVILY on her mind as she made her decision.

As we reported yesterday, the nurse/wife/mother of two left behind three different suicide notes after apparently hanging herself.

We now know two of those notes specifically reference the prank phone call and the subsequent fallout at King Edward VIII hospital.

One source close to the tragic situation reveals:

Kate Middleton Pranksters Show Teary-Eyed Remorse After Radio Station Terminates Their Show!

Filed under: Royals RoyceKate MiddletonSad Sad

So sad!

When Aussie DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian called King Edward VII Hospital last week posing as Royals, they were unprepared for what would follow!

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha took her own life, and the DJs are left trying to figure out what went wrong as their radio station tries to ensure this horrendously unfortunate event can never be replicated

Ch-ch-check out the genuinely heartbreaking first interview the radio personalities gave after learning about the passing of Kate Middleton's nurse (above)!

Regardless of the appropriateness of the prank, it's clear Mike and Mel are sorry for how their actions may have contributed to Jacintha's death.

The 2Day FM station has since canceled the morning show, suspended advertising sales, banned any further prank calls, and began a company-wide review of "relevant company policies and processes."

The world is deeply saddened by this senseless tragedy.

Hopefully Jacintha's husband and kids are coping as well as can be expected.

Madonna Can Thank Her Exes For Her W.E.

Filed under: MadonnaFilm FlickersSean PennGuy Ritchie

Madonna W.E.

The story of W.E. is told through the eyes of American Wally Winthrop (portrayed by Abby Cornish). As a New Yorker living in the perfect decade of the 90s, she finds herself paralleling Wallis Simpson.

Wallis was the fair lady with whom King Edward VIII fell in love. Due to her nationality and divorce history, he was forced to abdicate the throne for her. No biggie, though. It's love!

The story is woven into film formation and then brought to life by the one and only Madonna.

For her second gig at directing, Madonna publicly thanks and acknowledges her ex hubbies for their influence:

Madonna's W.E. Film Gets U.S. Distribution!

Filed under: MadonnaFilm FlickersBusiness Blitz

madonnas movie gets us distribution

It's on!

We are VERY excited to report that Madonna's U.S. directorial debut W.E. has been picked up by The Weinstein Company for domestic distribution.

As a reminder, the film's story is about "a modern-day New Yorker obsessed with the royal love story between Britain’s King Edward VIII and American divorcee Wallis Simpson."

The film was directed/co-written by Madge, and it stars Limitless' Abbie Cornish, Secret Diary of a Call Girl's James D'Arcy, and Never Let Me Go's Andrea Riseborough.

Here's what Madonna had to say about the distribution deal:

"W.E. is about the nature of true love, and the sacrifices and compromises that are often made. I've wanted to tell this story for a very long time, and bringing it to life has been a great adventure for me. I'm looking forward to working with Harvey and The Weinstein Company on this film."

Congratulations, Madge! As we've said before, we cannot wait to see this!

Are U pumped to hear that Madonna's W.E. is getting a U.S. release? Will U check it out when it hits theaters?

madonna movie to premiere at cannes

Back in September, we caught a glimpse of Madonna hard at work on her upcoming movie W.E.

Looks like the hard work paid off, because Madge plans to premiere her movie at Cannes in May.

In the meanwhile, she'll hold a private screening for "select distributors" in Berlin next month.

Madonna's movie, W.E., is about "parallel stories of the early 20th century love affair between Wallis Simpson and King Edward VIII and a modern romance." It stars Abbie Cornish.

We're SO excited for U, Madge! We bet you'll be a serious highlight of Cannes this year, bb!
