While India muddles through its own uniquely unique problems – the economy has fallen around the country’s ankles like pants without a belt; Modi won’t see his barber; nobody will tell us how Sushant died; and, get me my glasses, what’s written on Rhea’s T-shirt? – it hasn’t been smooth sailing for the rest of the world either. As COVID continues to tap-dance on our heads and Christmas seems to be a couple of years away, here are some of the intrigues that kept the globe going since last Sunday.

So, the Kardashians have called it quits. Or they’ve been shooed off the TV owing to low TRPs. Either way, they are going. How will they manage without the camera on them, how will we? Twenty seasons of their pouts, plastic surgery, psoriasis, photo-shop fails. Of weddings, divorces, surrogates and Scott’s on-off affair with Sofia… End of an era, even if it was a ‘can’t take my eye off this car crash’ era.

The Diary of an MP’s Wife, the newly published memoir by politician Hugo Swire’s wife Sasha, has the British snoot circles go, ‘oh oh oh’ into their porridge. Apart from her scent having once affected former PM David Cameron’s pheromones, she predicted that Markle will be ‘'eating the redhead for breakfast' as he is 'clearly not as clever as she is’ when Harry got engaged to Meghan. Boris Johnson is 'His Blondness', and a clergyman looked at her ‘as if he is working out if I’m shaggable’.

Then actor Chris Evans chose to flash us on social media! An accidental nude that had him trending on twitter. Naturally, no one lodged a police complaint.
