KATE MIDDLETON: Family Under Fire for Selling Zombie Princess Costume
For once Meghan Markle's family isn't at the center of a royal scandal. This time it's Kate Middleton's family.
Her parents are under fire for selling a zombie princess costume that some believe is insensitive because of Princess Diana's tragic death in 1997.
Simone Simmons, a friend of Diana's, tells Britain's Daily Star the costume, complete with a blood-covered gown and a tiara was “sicker than sick. I hope people boycott the site. This is really scraping the barrel. It’s twisted and warped.”
The Middletons own an event planning business called Party Pieces. They have since removed the costume from its website.

SHARON OSBOURNE: Leaves Britain's X Factor
Sharon Osbourne has decided to leave Britain's X Factor in the middle of the season after criticizing the series on the Howard Stern Show.
Rumors had been swirling that she was fired after the interview, in which she called contestants “little [poops]” and the show “[bleeping] karaoke.”
But in a statement, she said, “After watching the new season unfold, I’ve seen the new judges finding their rhythm and they are doing brilliantly. Simon [Cowell] was so gracious to find me a spot on the live shows but at this point I really don’t think I’m needed. I wish the show continued success and as much as I love to get my face on TV you will have to do without me this season.”
She signed a three-year deal with The X-Factor in 2016.
