'This Is Us': 3 Solid Reasons Fans Believe Randall Will Suffer a Massive Mental Health Breakdown This Season

We have seen an abundant amount of Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth Pearson’s (Susan Kelechi Watson) family in season 4 of This Is Us. Fans are beginning to think that there is a reason for their extended screen time. 

Huge discussions are going on surrounding the latest clash between Randall and his mother, Rebecca (Mandy Moore). Fans now believe that Randall is about to go through a huge mental health crisis this season. Read on to find out the three reasons they believe his breakdown is imminent. 

Randall continually takes on too much for any one person to handle

As the central father figure on the show, Randall carries everyone’s burdens. He stepped up after his father, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), passed away and took care of everyone else except himself. 

He went home from college every weekend to take care of Rebecca and fix things around her house. As an adult, Randall becomes the city councilman so that he can repair everything wrong with the area in which his father grew up.

“I fear for Randall because between the city councilman job, the issues with Deja and Tess, and now his mom’s memory issues, I think Randall is going to be on the verge of another breakdown coming soon. I think this one will probably be worse than the ones before, too,” wrote one fan on Reddit.

With each new episode, we see something new that Randall is taking responsibility for. It does look like fan theories are highly plausible that this build-up ends in a breakdown.

Randall is refusing treatment for his mental health

Since he was a young child, Randall suffered from anxiety. Kevin (Justin Hartley) often comes to his rescue to help calm him down. Recently, Randall’s daughter, Tess (Eris Baker), went through a panic attack in school. 

Randall was quick to help his daughter, as usual, helping everyone except himself. When Beth suggests she find a therapist for both Randall and Tess, he replied, “I don’t need therapy. I’m good. The best I’ve been in years.” 

Beth argues that he has a hectic work schedule, 10-mile daily runs, and constant nervous knee bouncing. “You know you don’t have to wait for it all to come crashing down to get help,” she insists. “We have resources now and people who are trained to deal with this kind of stuff.” Randall still refuses to get treatment for his anxiety. 

“Yup, especially after the episode when Randall shuts down Beth’s suggestion to find a therapist and her observation that he’s got a lot going on,” one Redditor wrote, agreeing that he is heading towards a breakdown. 

Rebecca’s deteriorating condition will push Randall over the edge

Me after that episode of #ThisIsUs 🤯

A post shared by Sterling Brown (@sterlingkbrown) on

In the promo for the fall finale of This Is Us, we observe Rebecca getting lost in a park. Randall is becoming increasingly concerned for her well-being. 

We know that Rebecca has been losing things and having more and more “senior moments,” according to Miguel. She had a massive outburst on Randall in the last episode and is oddly obsessed with taking pictures. Something is going on with her, but Randall doesn’t know what, yet. 

“Randall responds the same way Rebecca does when the possibility of a health issue is brought up. They don’t want to deal with it and will pretend it doesn’t exist until it is too big to ignore,” voiced a concerned fan on Reddit. 

It sounds like just as Rebecca’s illness comes out in the open, Randall’s may have to be addressed, too. Find out what happens next on This Is Us on Tuesday at 9 p.m. on NBC.

Theme Park Bits: Tarzan's Treehouse Closed, Indiana Jones Refurb, and More – /Film

In this edition of Theme Park Bits:

  • Tarzan’s Treehouse closed briefly at Disneyland last week.
  • Indiana Jones Adventure is going through a major refurbishment soon.
  • What’s the new structure in Disney’s Hollywood Studios?
  • And more!

One of the hidden gems of Disneyland is Tarzan’s Treehouse, originally an attraction themed to Swiss Family Robinson. All you do is walk through a very tall treehouse, see some figures from the film, a few show scenes tied to the story of the vine-swinging legend, and that’s that. It’s nice! It’s calm! It…was briefly closed this past weekend because someone caused a wooden slat to fall off a very tall bridge! Though no injuries were reported, this kind of incident is still a bit jarring, and a reminder that even Disneyland attractions are fallible. Next time you think about jumping on that bridge…well, don’t.

Speaking of Adventureland at Disneyland, one of the land’s biggest marquee attractions is preparing to go through a pretty extensive refurbishment in the new year. That would be Indiana Jones Adventure, which celebrates its 25th anniversary at the park next March. The attraction, in which you explore the Forbidden Eye and the horrors and treasures it keeps secret, is one of Disneyland’s best, but even the best attractions need some TLC. Based on the records submitted with the city of Anaheim, Indiana Jones may be getting more than a minor facelift.

Let’s head over to Walt Disney World for our last few stories. Over at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, some eagle-eyed park fans have noticed some odd doings afoot. Specifically, it appears that Disney Imagineers are building a totally new structure that may be tied to the upcoming opening of Rise of the Resistance over at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. A lot is still unknown about the new attraction, except that it’s sure to be a very busy affair with plenty of crowds. The box highlighted in the photo at the link may well be a backstage building for Cast Members, or something entirely different. We’ll find out soon enough, with the ride opening in a few weeks.

Moving onto Epcot, I wanted to highlight something here that might not be the first thing you think of when you think of a Disney theme park: art. Specifically, an art gallery that’s opening in the Morocco pavilion at World Showcase. More accurately, the Gallery of Arts and History is re-opening with a new exhibit called “Race Against the Sun”, wherein you can learn more about the detailed history of the Berbers, the people who lived centuries ago in the Sahara. World Showcase has become full of intellectual property, but galleries like these are its secret surprises — there’s plenty of fascinating culture to soak in if you know where to look.

For our last story, we’ll stop off at another one of the parks in the Walt Disney World Resort, Disney’s Animal Kingdom. The holiday season is in full swing there as well as the rest of the resort, with some exciting new projections, decor and more for you to discover on your holiday trips. Speaking of culture, you can experience the holiday celebration of Diwali in the Asia section of Animal Kingdom, and see how African culture fuses its own holiday traditions with Western-style celebrations in that area as well. Yes, you can also experience some holiday fun in Pandora, but really, you can use this time to both educate and entertain yourself about how the holidays are experienced outside of the Americas. And you can still have fun!

Justin Bieber Takes Scooter Braun’s Side Again In Taylor Swift Song Rights Controversy!

If you were wondering where Justin Bieber stood on the Taylor Swift controversy, prepare to not be too surprised.

For those who haven’t seen, Taylor is currently involved in a new battle in the ongoing legal war with Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun, who recently purchased the rights to her back catalog of songs.

On Thursday she posted to social media about her unfortunate legal situation, saying Braun and Big Machine Records founder Scott Borchetta had informed her she was not allowed to feature those songs in a Netflix documentary about her life, not even performance footage AND even more aggressively, that she can’t perform a medley of her old songs at the American Music Awards!

Video: Taylor’s Latest Song, A Haunting Track From The ‘CATS’ Movie

Taylor is planning to re-record all the old music but isn’t legally allowed to do so until next year; according to Taylor Braun and Borchetta are applying that ruling to televised performances — essentially equating the cameras capturing that performances as a “recording.”

She wrote:

“I just want to be able to perform MY OWN music. That’s it. I’ve tried to work this out privately through my team but have not been able to resolve anything. Right now my performance at the AMA’s, the Netflix documentary and any other recorded events I am planning to play until November of 2020 are a question mark.”

So where does Bieber land here?

Big Machine has responded publicly not by arguing their side but by denying they’re limiting Taylor at all!

The statements have ranged from splitting hairs to what appear to be straight-up lies — at least if you believe the receipts posted by Taylor’s PR specialist, Tree Paine.

It’s one of these statements the Sorry singer chose to amplify, posting on his Instagram story without comment a screenshot of a TMZ post in which a Big Machine source says they haven’t tried to stop Taylor from playing the AMAs and have no idea what she’s talking about:

Not exactly full-throated support, but he made his allegiance clear — and after saying he and Taylor were cool again after their previous drama!

Frankly, we aren’t too surprised Justin is still on #TeamBigMachine. Scooter plucked him from obscurity and managed him into one of the biggest pop acts of all time. He owes him.

We’re curious where other stars managed by Braun — like Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande, and Taylor’s former bestie Karlie Kloss — will land. (We’re guessing they’ll keep their heads down and say nothin’.)

What do YOU think of Justin’s “comment”?

Crown hunk Josh O'Connor, 29, shares first photo his new girlfriend

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Crown hunk Josh O’Connor, 29, who plays Prince Charles in the hit Netflix series shares first photo his new girlfriend

Named one of Britain’s most eligible bachelors by society magazine Tatler, Josh O’Connor wants the world to know he’s in love.

The 29-year-old, who plays Prince Charles in TV drama The Crown, made a romantic gesture in true contemporary style by sharing his first picture of himself with his girlfriend, marketing director Margot Hauer-King, on social media — complete with heart emojis. 

‘He’s a very private guy, so this is a big deal,’ says a friend of Josh. ‘It’s serious. He’s found the one.’

The actor has quietly been enjoying a sizzling romance for some time with the 26-year-old daughter of Jeremy King, who co-owns London restaurants The Wolseley and Colbert, but has never before made such a public declaration. 

Earlier this year, I revealed the couple had moved in together in East London.

‘I was having a [Japanese anti-clutter guru] Marie Kondo-style clear-out of my wardrobe and came across my old vintage Asian top bought before I even went to university,’ the 39-year-old former champion cyclist (left) tells me.

‘It still fitted and I thought, ‘What better occasion to wear it?’

Victoria adds: ‘I made a pact with myself to not buy fast fashion — 11 months in and I haven’t bought any clothes.’

(Very) modern manners 

The Queen is said to have admitted she finds it ‘strange’ to be faced with a sea of mobile phone screens whenever she goes on a walkabout. And now pop singer Mick Hucknall is seeing red over the tablets that ruin his gigs.

Explaining that he wishes ‘concert-goers would put their iPads down’, the Simply Red star says: ‘By all means use a phone, but it’s a very selfish act to use your iPad.

‘When you’re behind someone in an arena you have rows of seats, so you already have a limited view.

‘But with holding up an iPad, it’s like sticking an extra head in there to further impede the view of the person behind you.’

Sounds like he’s Holding Back The Tears . . .

Mother accuses health board of ‘cover-up’ over death of 10-year-old daughter

The mother of a 10-year-old girl who died in hospital believes staff knew how she died but neglected to tell the family.

Milly Main was in remission from leukaemia before contracting an infection in Glasgow's Queen Elizabeth University Hospital (QEUH) in 2017.

Her mother, Kimberly Darroch told the BBC she is "100%" certain contaminated water caused the Stenotrophomonas infection, which is listed as a possible cause of death on her daughter's death certificate.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) said it was not possible to conclude infections identified in 2017 were connected to the water supply, because it was not required to test for bloodstream infection Stenotrophomonas at that time.

Milly underwent a successful stem cell transplant in July 2017 and was making a good recovery when the following month her Hickman line, a catheter used to administer drugs, became infected.

She went into toxic shock and died some days later.

Since it was reported that a doctor-led investigation found the death of a young cancer patient at QEUH in 2017 was linked to an infected water supply, Kimberley says she feels "let down but lied to".

The 35-year-old from Lanark said: "I think they knew prior to Milly's death that the water was contaminated.

"I feel that they knew that this was the infection that killed my daughter but no-one came forward to tell us."

The mum urged hospital staff to release the conclusions she believes were reached during the inquiry.

She added: "I want an apology, I want them to admit what they have done is wrong and I want them to admit that the covered it up."

The cover-up allegations have led to calls for Health Secretary Jeane Freeman to resign.

Ms Darroch said she wrote to Ms Freeman asking for answers and wanted more than her assurances that an official inquiry will be held.

Today, three days after she announced an inquiry into infection at the hospital on September 17, a parent contacted Ms Freeman to tell her of their child's death after treatment at QEUH in 2017.

The politician wrote back on October 23 expressing condolences, saying she had asked senior NHSGGC staff to contact the parent and checked later this had been done.

She added: "I am at all times aware of the importance of patient confidentiality and so rightly, I believe, I did not treat this correspondence as a public matter.

"The ward in which the child concerned in the correspondence I received on 20 September, 2A/2B, was closed and undergoing remedial and upgrading work.

"Any suggestion that children were at risk after I received this information is therefore incorrect."

The Scottish Conservatives have said Ms Freeman should resign or be sacked after the Government "covered up" the case.

Scottish Liberal Democrat health spokesman Alex Cole-Hamilton said Ms Freeman's decision not to go public was "incomprehensible" and called on her to make a statement at Holyrood on the issue.

Mr Sarwar also called for Ms Freeman to address the Scottish Parliament, saying: "The Health Secretary needs to remember her job is to protect patients, families and staff, not institutions.

"I have promised Milly's family I will stand by them until they get the answers and justice they deserve, no matter how long it takes."

An official investigation into water contamination at the hospital found 23 cases of child cancer patients with Stenotrophomonas in 2018.

This figure was disputed by an NHS whistleblower who told Mr Sarwar an internal investigation uncovered an additional 26 cases since 2017 – including one child who died.

A NHSGGC spokeswoman said: "This week's coverage will have been very challenging for Milly's family. It is a tragedy in any situation when a young child dies.

"We would again like to share our deepest condolences with the family involved.

"We have offered to meet Ms Darroch to discuss her concerns, and to answer her questions where we can.

"We fully understand that the family wants to know whether the infection Milly had is connected to the water supply.

"The truth is there is no way to know this as we did not consider this to be the source at the time and we did not test for the particular infection in the water supply.

"We remain very concerned that a member of staff has made a claim of a link when there is no evidence of this, causing significant distress and anxiety to Milly's parents.

"The water in the hospital is safe and has been independently assessed as such."

Doctor Who season 12 spoilers: Bradley Walsh teases scariest Doctor Who monsters yet

Doctor Who will be exploding on television screens in the new year as Jodie Whittaker returns to play the lead role. But according to her co-star Bradley Walsh, fans should expect to watch the new episode from behind the sofa as it is set have the scariest monsters yet. 

The Thirteenth Doctor (played by Jodie Whittaker) is edging closer to materialising back onto our screens with the twelfth series of intergalactic adventures.

And joining her on her further travels across time and space is bus driver Graham O’Brien (played by Bradley Walsh).

For a bloke plucked from Sheffield and chucked into life-and-death situations on the other side of the galaxy, he’s been pretty composed.

But Bradley Walsh has teased that is all set to change.


  • Doctor Who season 12 spoilers: Jodie Whittaker returns

What awaits fans in the new series may have them diving behind the sofa and staying there for some time after each episode.

Bradley has shared his opinion on the latest monsters to join The Doctor’s roster of villains and it sounds as if he’s lost sleep after meeting them.

Given The Doctor has faced fan favourites the Weeping Angels and the Daleks, Bradley’s latest claims will send a shiver down spines back on Earth.

Bradley has described The Doctor’s latest foes as “absolutely terrifying”.

“I’ve got to say, be prepared for the monsters,” Bradley has warned. “Because there are some monsters that will absolutely make your hair curl.

“There’s a couple of monsters that they’ve come up with that are absolutely terrifying – and I mean terrifying,” he told Radio Times online. 

No need for hair curlers once the series returns, then.

Bradley has also spoken about the Graham’s continuing journey, which began with the heartbreak of losing his beloved Grace (Sharon D Clarke) and has since seen him speed through dimensions with The Doctor.

Doctor Who season 12 spoilers: Time Lord to take on new rival?
Doctor Who season 12 spoilers: Bill Potts to return in new series?
Doctor Who season 12 spoilers: 2019 Christmas special revealed?

“Graham’s journey, considering he is a bus driver from Sheffield, is the most extraordinary, life-changing things he has ever, ever, ever done,” explained Bradley.

“It’s just… it’s really difficult to put into words how someone from a normal environment would react to stuff like this.”

Graham has, at least, not been the only human in the TARDIS dealing with eye-popping worlds and daily dangers.

Ryan Sinclair (Tosin Cole) and Yasmin Khan (Mandip Gill) have also been aboard and will also return for the new series.

Fans could do with Graham to help solve the mystery which has been teased on the official Doctor Who Twitter account, telling fans to “Watch this space” for an announcement on 23rd November.

The date has major significance to Doctor Who, marking the show’s first air date in 1963.

Might the latest series arrive earlier than 2020, as was previously believed?

Or might it be the date we first meet some of these “terrifying” new villains to help prepare us for what’s to come?

The Queen made royal chefs cook up a special menu for each of her corgis – and it changed every day

THROUGHOUT her 67-year reign, the Queen has been known for keeping an assortment of adorable corgis – and more recently dorgis.

And the monarch, 93, has always ensured that her famous pooches received only the best treatment, including dinner fit for royalty.

Speaking to Hello! Online, former royal chef Darren McGrady revealed that Her Majesty insisted the pampered dogs had their own special menu which changed every day.

"When I worked at the palace, we actually had a royal menu for the dogs," explained the ex-royal staff member – who worked for the Queen for 11 years.

The chef said that a woman called Mrs Fennick, who looked after the dogs at Sandringham, would send details of their meal plan to his kitchen each month.

"It would list each day what the dogs were to have. One day it would be beef, the next day chicken, the next day lamb, the next day rabbit and it alternated through those days.

"The beef would come in, we would cook it, dice it into really fine pieces and then we did same with the chicken."

These would be poached and chopped into very small pieces to ensure there were no bones the dogs might "choke" on.

Darren added that Prince William and Prince Harry would shoot rabbits on the Windsor Estate which would then be brought in to be cleaned and cooked for the pooches.

Depending on how their digestive systems were faring, he revealed that he would add cabbage to the menu if they were "a little bunged up" and rice if it was "the other way".

It comes as it was revealed by a royal expert that the Queen has her ownsecret-recipe gravy that is served to her dogs on a silver tray by a footman.

The Queen has famously owned more than 30 corgis during her reign, however the final one, Willow, died last year after she stopped breeding them in 2015.

She still has two dogs – dorgis Vulcan and Candy – who are a cross-breed between one of her corgis and late sister Princess Margaret’s dachshund Pipkin.

To celebrate her 90th birthday in 2016, the Queen appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair, shot by Annie Leibovitz, with Willow, Vulcan and Candy.

In other royal news, we told you how an expert has claimed that Meghan Markle must help Prince Harry "sort himself out" and heal rift with Prince William.

We also revealed that the Queen is hiring someone to give tours of Buckingham Palace for £10.50 per hour.

And the Duchess of Sussex has ditched the high street to flaunt "status", says an expert.

Edward Norton talks box office failure of Fight Club, costarring Brad Pitt

Watch the full episode of Couch Surfing streaming now on PeopleTV.com, or download the PeopleTV app on your favorite device.

Fight Club is now considered one of the best films of the 1990s — with people still quoting it to this day — but when the film first debuted in 1999, it divided critics and scored average at the box office.

Speaking to Fight Club’s now-legendary status, Edward Norton, who starred in the movie alongside Brad Pitt and Helena Bonham Carter, assigns partial blame for its lackluster debut to those in charge of promoting it.

“I think there was a reluctance on the part of some of the people who were actually marketing it, to embrace the idea that it was funny, and honestly I think they felt indicted by it,” Norton says on PeopleTV’s Couch Surfing.

Or as host Lola Ogunnaike puts it, they felt it was “calling them out.” The film was highly critical of societal ills like consumerism and toxic masculinity and — on top of its twists and turns — made for a project difficult to market.

“I think if you felt more like the guy who plays my boss in the film, then you tended to not like the film,” Norton says. “But also, it just was a tough one to distill.”

Admitting that he was hurt by the initial response to Fight Club, Norton — who’s currently starring in the new film Motherless Brooklyn, which he also directed and wrote — says he’s grateful for DVDs being “a powerful second conveyance” of its message.

“It was an interesting experience because we all loved it and we were very confident about it. We were a little stung,” Norton says. “You can never completely detach your ego to how does it do when it first opens, but then we all had the very special experience of realizing that the relationship it formed with people was everything you dream of when you get into films.”

“It wasn’t financially successful at first, it never was even in conversation about awards and all that crap,” Norton adds. But as Ogunnaike points out, it became a film that “defines a generation.”

“[Not initially] but it became that, and that’s better,” Norton says.

Watch more in the Couch Surfing clip above, including Norton’s reaction to seeing Pitt’s ripped body during one of those fight scenes.

Prince Andrew Tells The BBC That He Let The Royal Family Down By Associating With Jeffrey Epstein

The BBC has released the first taste of its world exclusive “no-holds-barred” interview with Prince Andrew — and it looks like the Duke of York will be dining out on a big slice of humble pie.

Prince Andrew has been on the ropes over his relationship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who killed himself in prison in August while awaiting trial on fresh sex-trafficking and conspiracy charges.

In his first interview since becoming engulfed by the scandal, Andrew told BBC presenter Emily Maitlis that he regretted standing by Epstein after the financier pled guilty to soliciting underage sex in 2008.

The Duke of York met Epstein after he was released from prison in 2010, and has admitted to spending time with the billionaire more than once a year, and staying in “a number of his residences.”

But since an avalanche of fresh allegations against Epstein and his death in a New York jail, Andrew said “I kick myself” for his association with the financier. He added that he fell short of standards expected of the British royal family.

In a clip played on BBC News tonight, he said: “I stayed with him and that’s…that’s…that’s the bit that…that…that, as it were, I kick myself for on a daily basis because it was not something that was becoming of a member of the royal family and we try and uphold the highest standards and practices and I let the side down, simple as that.”

Prince Andrew also said he has no memory of meeting Epstein accuser Victoria Roberts Giuffre, who claims she was coerced into having sex with the Duke when she was 17. “I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever,” he said.

The full interview, Prince Andrew & The Epstein Scandal: The Newsnight Interview, airs Saturday at 9PM GMT on BBC Two.

Camila Cabello Reveals Her New Tattoo Is Inspired by the 1998 Film, 'Shakespeare in Love'

Remember when Kim Kardashian said “Would you ever put a bumper sticker on a Bentley?” to reference her tattoo free status! Of course you do, how could you not? Welp, it looks like Camila Cabello could literally give less of a f*ck about what Kim thinks, because she just got her very first tattoo ever—yay! And if that wasn’t already super exciting, she got the tattoo with her boyfriend, Shawn (Bae) Mendes, by her side. Have you heard of anything more adorable? Nope, I think not.

Camila and Shawn went to Los Angeles-based tattoo artist, Kane Navasard, the day after they engaged in that steamy basketball game PDA. So given that info, people thought that Shawn and Camila pulled the trigger and got matching tattoos. Unfortunately, that was not the case! They both got very unique inkings that day—Shawn, the letter “A” behind the back of his ear, and Camila, script lettering of the words “it’s a mystery,” on the inside of her pinky.

Now, Camila is giving us the deeper meaning behind the tattoo, and as it turns out, it’s a direct quote from the 1998 film, Shakespeare in Love! On Instagram, Camila reposted the original picture Kane posted to his tattoo page and shared with fans how she settled on the design.

Camila wrote:

Need a little more context? Don’t worry—I gotchu! Here’s the actual scene from the movie that Camila’s ink is taken from:

Soooo, does this have anything at all to do with Shawn? Mmm, it’s a possibility, but in addition to the tattoo being about her mother, it likely has its roots in her upcoming album, Romance. Shakespeare is the father of romantic poetry, after all!
