Frankie Bridge‘s children ”don’t have a clue” their parents are famous.

The former Saturdays singer is pleased that Parker, six, and Carter, four, don’t care about life in the public eye and they barely show any interest if she or their former footballer dad Wayne Bridge are the TV.

She said: ”I’ve asked them, ‘What do Mummy and Daddy do?’ and they just say, ‘Work’. They don’t really have a clue and I think that’s quite nice.

”They know we’re on telly sometimes, but they don’t sit and watch us. I’ll say, ‘Daddy’s on TV today’, and they’ll say, ‘Oh, OK’, and then it’s back to their iPads.”

And the 31-year-old beauty has no desire for her kids to follow in either her or Wayne’s footsteps.

She said: ”My two don’t really do after-school activities and are not in a football team, they aren’t really that interested.

”My youngest really likes music and the eldest is going to be learning the drums.

”I’d like the boys to be into sport purely to keep them fit and active and I’d love them to have an interest in music, whether it’s listening to it or playing an instrument.

”But I’m not particularly fussed if they’re good or not.”

Frankie admitted she and Wayne are ”lazy” and don’t like getting dressed up for ”posh” date nights.

She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: Frankie says: ”Before lockdown, we would just go to the cinema or for dinner.

”We’re quite lazy, we don’t really go into London or do anything that posh. We can’t be bothered getting dressed up.”

And she took things to the ”next level” in the early days of lockdown and rarely wore anything other than pyjamas.

She said: ”I’m pretty useless anyway, when I’m not working I don’t tend to wear make-up and I’m an athleisure wearer whether I’m working out or not. I then took it to the next level in lockdown.

”I had my pyjamas I put on when I had just got up and my pyjamas I put on after I had a shower. In my household, if you’re not leaving the house you don’t get out of your pyjamas anyway.

”The boys were pretty much in them all the time. It’s nice to wear normal clothes now and put a bit of make-up on, but then it’s nice to get home and take it all off.”

Meanwhile, the brunette beauty has co-written ‘The Munchy Trunks’, the world’s first ”eat along book”, with baby food brand Ella’s Kitchen, encouraging little ones to explore a variety of tasty finger foods through fun, sensory play at mealtimes.

For more details on ‘The Munchy Trunks’ book, or to buy it for £2.50, visit All proceeds from the physical book will be donated to Flavour School, a charity delivering sensory education for nurseries in the UK.

Jimmy Fallon | Chace Crawford snubbed Chippendales

chace crawford 2146111

Chace Crawford turned down the chance to join the Chippendales.

The former ‘Gossip Girl’ star was approached by an agent in the gym who asked him to try out to join the dance troupe, who are known for their striptease routines, but he politely declined the proposal.

Speaking during a virtual appearance on ‘The Tonight Show, he told host Jimmy Fallon: ”That actually is a true story. That was probably back in the first iPhone days…

”I’ve never gotten to fully tell it…I did turn it down.

”I lived in New York, it’s cold, I liked to work out at the gym in my building. Usually no one is ever up there, except this one guy, he would always be up there, you know, smelling good, tight clothes. I thought he was a trainer.”

The 35-year-old actor recalled the man approaching and asking if he was a ”model type”.

He quipped: ”I’m kind of like a work out alone no conversation type.

”I’m teasing, he was very nice.

”He asked me for some headshots…which I usually carry with me to the gym but didn’t have them that day.

”He goes, ‘Hey, I do this bootcamp if you’d like to try out for Chippendales.’ ”

Although Chace declined the approach, he joked that he’d ”really messed up” and should have taken the man up on the offer.

He said: ”This was pre-‘Magic Mike’ days. I really messed up, I should’ve done it.”

The ‘Boys’ actor previously admitted he finds it ”tiresome” that his good looks overshadow his acting talent.

Asked if it’s frustrating to have his talent overshadowed by his looks, he said: ”Well, it’s definitely strange. I guess there are worse problems to have, but it can be a little tiresome because I don’t like attention being drawn to me. I have a specific look and it’s my job to play against that.”

And Chace thinks his hunky good looks led to him being typecast when ‘Gossip Girl’ ended, making landing new jobs difficult.

He added: ”It’s frustrating when you know you’re not getting cast because you look… well, because you’re a heartthrob from this thing. I know this happens and it’s okay.”

Reba McEntire Hopes to Secure ‘Schitt’s Creek’ Co-Creator as Guest on New Podcast



The country star and her co-host Melissa Peterman have recorded 12 episodes of ‘Living and Learning with Reba McEntire’ with other guests including Kristin Chenoweth, Dolly Parton and Jane Fonda.

Reba McEntire wants to snag a chat with multiple Emmy Award winner Dan Levy for her new podcast.

The country star and her “Living & Learning with Reba McEntire” co-host Melissa Peterman have already scored big chats with the likes of “9 to 5” stars Dolly Parton and Jane Fonda, but they now want the “Schitt’s Creek” co-creator and star, who was the toast of the Primetime Emmys on Sunday night, September 20.

“He’s so funny,” she tells Billboard. “Bette Midler, I would love to have on (too). Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood would be a lot of fun. I’m such a fan of entertainment.”

Reba and Melissa have already recorded 12 episodes, with other guests including Kristin Chenoweth and bestselling author Glennon Doyle, and the singer admits the series has forced her to brush up on hot-button 2020 topics like “cancel culture” and issues such as “rejection and how to deal with it” and “manners” for shows.

But it’s not all serious when she and Melissa get behind the microphone – they end each session with a fun question-and-answer segment, asking guests things like: “Would you rather get pooped on or barfed on?.”

McEntire insists the silliness is intended to bring a little joy to what has been a difficult year for so many.

“You got a happy attitude and a little humor in it at all times,” she says.

“Living & Learning with Reba McEntire” debuted on Monday, September 21. Tune in to the first two episodes here:
