If you’re an Ina Garten fan, you already know that her flower game is strong.

And while you think you might not have the time or energy to whip up a lavish arrangement, Ina points out just how easy it is to make a huge style statement with flowers. To add major flower drama to any table, all you really need is one type of flower and a handful of drinking glasses. Ina demonstrates how dazzling this foolproof style recipe can be with her table full of pretty pink roses. We’ll definitely be referencing this tip the next time we host dinner!

Ayda Field almost landed major Big Bang Theory role
Ayda Field has revealed she almost became one of the best-paid actresses on TV but lost out on a leading role in The Big Bang Theory to Kaley Cuoco.
The 39-year-old X Factor judge admitted how she auditioned for the part of Penny in the popular American sitcom, but missed out on the part to 32-year-old Cuoco, who now earns $1million an episode.
Speaking to the Sunday Mirror newspaper, Field said: “I tested against Kaley Cuoco for The Big Bang Theory. Not getting that hurts. And you read articles like, ‘highest-paid actress in television’.
”I’ve had jobs taken away. You have to audition the day after. You’ve got to do it, but I can’t be funny.
”Or when I’d broken up with Rob. You’re testing for this comedy, [but think] ‘I can’t do it.”’
Ayda missed out on the role of Penny on The Big Bang Theory to Kaley Cuoco
Field, who split from Robbie before they walked down the aisle in 2010, has always felt as though she’s been having to challenge the odds.
”I’m an underdog. You just have to know you are capable of a lot more than you think.”
It was announced in August that The Big Bang Theory will end in May 2019.
The American Horror Story Alum You Might Have Missed in This Week’s Episode
This week’s episode of American Horror Story is filled to the brim with familiar faces, more than you probably realized. The most obvious, of course, are the original occupants of the dreaded Murder House: Evan Peters as Tate! Taissa Farmiga as Violet! Dylan McDermott as Ben! Connie Britton as Vivien! Jessica Lange as Constance! Amid all the excitement, you may have missed one other returning alum who stretches all the way back to season two’s Asylum. Well, and there is also the fact that she’s missing quite a bit of the defining features related to her other character.
We’re talking about Naomi Grossman! Of course, you remember Grossman best as Pepper from Asylum and later Freak Show. Pepper is such a special character in the AHS universe; she’s the first character to have crossed over between seasons, which means she was also the first hint that all the seasons are somehow connected. In Apocalypse, Grossman appears as one of the cardinals in the Church of Satan. (The other being Ms. Miriam Meade, of course.) She’s the character who describes how they managed to find Michael Langdon and the one who first plunges the sacrificial knife into the body of their frightened victim. Without all the Pepper prosthetics, Grossman is hard to recognize!
Between this and all the other returning faces in Apocalypse, the show’s eighth season is undoubtedly the most laden with nostalgia yet. I mean, sure, we’re also nostalgic just from having seen the Murder House one final time, but Grossman’s return made this week’s episode that much sweeter. Who will we see next?!

Prince Harry Was Given Some Tiny Swim Trunks, and You Better Believe He Tried Them On
Prince Harry is such a good sport! While wife Meghan Markle rested at home during their 16-day tour of Australia, the famous royal was gifted a pair of “budgie smugglers,” i.e., a Speedo, by Invictus Games athletes. After graciously accepting the gift, Harry went one step further.
“He said, ‘Shall I put them on?’ We said, ‘100 percent,'” said ABC’s Dylan Alcott, as reported by The Guardian. The prince then proceeded to pull the tiny swim trunks over his dress pants, giving everyone something to laugh about.
Harry’s hilarious moment with the athletes might’ve been prompted by an earlier meeting, when participants asked him to sign another pair of budgie smugglers, and he had to decline. It’s against royal protocol to give out autographs, but this seems like a pretty good alternative! Keep reading to see more snaps from Harry’s exchange with the athletes below, and make sure to check out the best snaps of the royal couple’s tour so far.

Dwayne Johnson is ripped and ready for Hobbs and Shaw. The 46-year-old actor shared a shirtless snap to Instagram after completing 18 weeks of dieting and training for the Fast & Furious spinoff film, and while he says there’s “always room for improvement,” Dwayne looks like he’s in tip-top shape.
He will be reprising his role of Luke Hobbs, a US diplomatic security agent, alongside Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw.

Meghan Markle’s White Dress Is Actually Called the “Blessed Dress,” and How Fitting Is That?
A glowing and pregnant Meghan Markle and Prince Harry stepped out in Australia on Monday to kick off their tour, and Meghan stunned in a sleeveless white dress. This was the couple’s first official outing since announcing Meghan’s pregnancy, and the pair looked adorable as ever. Meghan opted for a simple, structured dress by Australian designer Karen Gee called – wait for it – the Blessed Dress. It really doesn’t get more fitting than that, does it?
As Meghan made her way through the Admiralty House in Sydney alongside her dapper-looking husband (let’s not forget to also mention his tailored suit), she showed off the first signs of her growing baby bump. Meghan is already proving her maternity style is nothing short of regal, and we can’t wait to see what she wears throughout her first royal tour. See more photos of a glowing Meghan, who capped off her look with Stuart Weitzman Legend pumps ($375) and jewelry that belonged to Princess Diana, ahead.
