The Kardashian-Jenner family secret is out. Quibi’s Kirby Jenner trailer introduces Kendall Jenner’s mustachioed "fraternal twin brother" as he joins his "pretty important" sisters in finally getting his own reality show — after momager Kris Jenner pushed him in front of the cameras, of course. "You’re the best kept secret of our generation," big sis Kim Kardashian tells (the fictional) Kirby in one scene from the eight-episode daily short-form comedy series, which premiered its first two episodes on Sunday, May 24.
"I’m 24 years old, and I guess it’s time for me to start pulling my own weight and help out with the family business," Kirby says in the sneak preview, explaining he’s an amateur model who likes to rollerblade, among other "pretty fun" hobbies. Executive Producers Kendall and Kris also appear in the show, along with Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé Kardashian, as well as Kylie Jenner.
"I’m definitely close with everyone in the family," Kirby recently explained to E! News. "But to be honest, Khloé and I have bonded a lot recently, especially during this quarantine. We’ve been playing a lot of Mario Kart and I think that’s just been so much fun. You know, the whole family has actually been playing but Khloé and I like really take it seriously and dude, she’s good. She’s like pro level Mario Kart."
He added that the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars also had plenty of advice when it came to him stepping into the spotlight: "I was a little nervous when this was all getting started. Like my mom explained, and Kendall too, they sort of told me like, ‘Look, just be yourself. And these cameras are just gonna follow you around everywhere and you’ve got nothing to worry about.’"
Kirby started his Instagram parody account in which he photoshops himself into Kendall’s social media photos in July 2015. As of publication, he’d racked up more than 1.5 million followers, and has received nominations for the Webby and Shorty Awards in social humor, best photography, and parody accounts.
Only time will tell if Kirby can keep up with his famous sisters as he takes his turn in the spotlight.
VICTORIA’S Secret Angel Romee Strijd will have her admirers seeing double Dutch in a sexy new photoshoot.
The blonde bombshell, 24, stuns in a saucy bikini for the American fashion brand who recruited her services when she was just 19 years old.
The model recently celebrated five years flying high as an angel with the US company.
Posting on Instagram earlier this month, the star, who is currently in lockdown at her home in Amsterdam, wrote to her 6.3m followers: “Another day in the backyard.”
But whichever side of the camera Romee’s on, she always seems to get the exposure just right.
During her career, Romee has walked runways for a series of high-fashion brands including Burberry, Prada and Christopher Kane, and has appeared in campaigns for Alexander McQueen, Donna Karen and H&M.
Meghan Markle is making a sudden return to your streaming queue just in time. Despite conflicting rumors over the past few months, Markle has indeed been at work doing voice roles for Disney. However, the real-life duchess will not be in one of the studio’s famed princess movies. Instead, she’s narrated the nature documentary Elephant. It will premiere on the Disney+ streaming service on April 3rd.
Typically, Disneynature films use documentary footage to tell the story of a family group of the titular species. Markle joins an impressive group of past narrators for the series. Meryl Streep, Tina Fey, and James Earl Jones have all previously lent their voices to Disneynature films.
Typically, one Disneynature film a year is released to movie theaters near Earth Day in late April with a percentage of the opening weekend box office going to a relevant charity. It is not clear if Elephant was originally intended for cinemas.
Disneynature’s Elephant, an Original Movie narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, starts streaming April 3, only on #DisneyPlus.

Though, for those more interested in the news of new nature films more than Markle’s involvement, you’re in look. The same day Disney+ is also releasing Dolphin Reef, narrated by Natalie Portman. Penguins, narrated by Ed Helms, will also premiere that same day after bowing in movie theaters last year.
For royal watchers, the announcement credits Markle as “Meghan, Duchess of Sussex” without the “H.R.H.” Markle and husband Prince Harry’s last day as official members of the royal family is set for March 31st.

VICTORIA’S Secret model Romee Strijd gets strapped in for what could be a bumpy year for the brand.
The Dutch beauty, 24, has been an Angel for the US firm which last year cancelled its annual fashion show following criticism for a lack of body diversity.
The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show launched in 1995, going on to become synonymously linked with slender supermodels – known as "angels" – such as Naomi Campbell and Gisele Bundchen.
The annual fashion show had seen a severe drop in viewership over several years.
Last year, 3.3 million people tuned in – down from 9.7 million viewers in 2013.
After ABC first broadcast the event in 2001, it moved to CBS from 2002 to 2017, only to return to ABC again last year.
That show, however – filled with the elaborate lingerie, wings and sleepwear viewers had come to expect – would prove to be the brand's last for now – though Burgdoerfer did not specify whether the cancellation is permanent or temporary.
