Why Grace Kelly’s «Wedding of the Century» Still Blows Our Minds 61 Years Later

When you think of an opulent royal wedding, Prince William and Kate Middleton or Prince Charles and Princess Diana’s lavish London nuptials probably come to mind. Long before either of those couples tied the knot, however, a different royal pair made waves with their mind-blowing wedding celebration: Grace Kelly and Monaco’s Prince Rainier III. The couple first met at the Cannes Film Festival in 1955 and were engaged a few months later. Their glamorous wedding was held soon afterward on April 18, 1956, and remains one of the most glamorous affairs in royal history. Let’s take a look back at why it had jaws on the floor back then and still blows our minds 61 years later.

Megyn Kelly’s Interview With Alex Jones Got Her Dropped As Host Of A Sandy Hook Benefit 

wenn31460755

One-time Fox News sweetheart Megyn Kelly made her debut on NBC News a little over a week ago with a Vladimir Putin interview, and it was supposed to be a real fucking get, or something, but it left some people screaming at her to take a long course at Howard Stern’s Night School Of How To Really Interview A Bitch, because she didn’t get anything out of him. Megyn is getting shit again and this time it’s for an interview that hasn’t even aired yet. On Sunday night, NBC will barf up an interview that Megyn did with conspiracy theorist and “performance artist” Alex Jones, who thinks the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre was a staged government hoax involving actors. Because Megyn gave a platform to a tinfoil hat-wearing ass nugget, she’s been dropped as host of a Sandy Hook benefit and her Sunday night show has lost a sponsor.

A piece of Megyn’s interview with Alex is about his theory that Sandy Hook was a hoax. Well, who knew that when you interview a Sandy Hook truther, a Sandy Hook benefit will let you know that they want nothing to do with you. The Washington Post says that the organizers of an annual gala for the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, a nonprofit gun violence prevention group founded by family members of some of the Sandy Hook shooting victims, has let Megyn go as host. I know, Megyn Kelly hosting a Sandy Hook gala is a WTF in itself.

“Sandy Hook Promise cannot support the decision by Megyn or NBC to give any form of voice or platform to Alex Jones and have asked Megyn Kelly to step down as our Promise Champion Gala host. It is our hope that Megyn and NBC reconsider and not broadcast this interview.”

Chase has also washed their hands of Megyn Kelly and have pulled their ads from her show.

It doesn’t seem like NBC is going to drop Alex Jones’ interview. Liz Cole, the executive producer of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, said that they’re serious journalists and it’s their job to interview people in the news no matter how gross they are. Liz said that people should watch the interview before getting outraged. Megyn spit up her own statement, saying that she also gets the heaves from Alex Jones’ Sandy Hook theory, but that as a serious journalist, it’s her job to “shine a light.” 

Even Alex Jones himself wants NBC to drop his interview into the shit can. Alex calls his interview with Megyn a “hit pieceand says the show misrepresented” his views on Sandy Hook.

So let’s see…

Megyn’s NBC News show hasn’t even been on two weeks and so far not many are impressed, she lost an advertiser and the smegma dingle she interviewed isn’t happy with her interview. Outside of NBC Studios right now, Tamron Hall is cackling into the air as Billy Bush and Kathy Griffin stroll in with their resumes to let HR know that they’re available Sunday nights, and any night really.

What You May Not Have Known About Grace Kelly’s Untimely Death

Grace Kelly passed away on Sept. 14, 1982, and the details surrounding her death are still just as tragic. The Princess of Monaco was 52 when a stroke caused her to lose control of the wheel and crash her 1971 Rover P6 3500. On a Monday morning, Grace and her daughter Stéphanie, who was 17 at the time, prepared to leave for the palace after spending time at their country home in Roc Agel. They had tickets for a train to Paris, where Stéphanie would start school that Wednesday. After filling the rear seat with dresses and large hat boxes, Grace told her chauffeur that it would be easier if she drove. Even though he tried to persuade her to let him drive, saying that he could come back for the clothes, she insisted the two make the journey without him.

At about 10 a.m., Grace, with her daughter in the passenger seat, pulled away from Roc Agel and headed down the hill and into La Turbie, a commune in southeastern France. Approximately two miles from La Turbie, Grace missed an especially steep turn, causing the car to crash into a retaining wall and drop more than 100 feet over a cliff. When paramedics arrived, Grace was alive but unconscious and in critical condition. She and Stéphanie were transported to the Monaco Hospital, which has since been renamed the Princess Grace Hospital Centre. A day later, she suffered a second hemorrhage and never regained consciousness. While it has been widely thought that she succumbed to her injuries from the crash, Grace actually died on Tuesday night after her husband, Prince Rainier, chose to take her off life support.

On the following Saturday, over 400 people, including Cary Grant, Nancy Reagan, and Princess Diana, said farewell to the Hollywood icon, while close to 100 million viewers tuned in on TV. The funeral was held at Saint Nicholas Cathedral in Monaco, where Grace had her fairy-tale wedding to Prince Rainier in 1956. Stéphanie, the youngest of Grace and Rainier’s three children, was not present at the funeral as she was still being hospitalized for minor injuries from the accident. After a requiem mass, Grace was laid to rest in the Grimaldi family vault.
