Kim Kardashian Freaks Out After 'Bridgerton’ Star Reveals Behind-The-Scenes Connection

“Bridgerton” star Nicola Coughlan told Kim Kardashian about her inspiration for the show, and the reality TV personality couldn’t have been more thrilled.

She also claimed a link between her corset on the show and one made for Kardashian. “You’ve been part of the Bridgerton world for longer than you know,” Coughlan wrote.

Kim Kardashian Asks to Come to 'Bridgerton' Set After Nicola Coughlan Reveals Kardashian Connection to Show

If the Featherington sisters on Bridgerton reminded you of another famous TV family -- there's a reason for that. As Bridgerton star Nicola Coughlan shared on Twitter on Tuesday, the Kardashian family served as inspiration for the Featheringtons.  Kim Kardashian first shared with fans in March that she was obsessed with the Netflix regency drama, so naturally Coughlan thought she should be informed of her family's connection to the show.  "As the world’s number one @bridgerton Stan does @KimKardashian know that the Kardashians were a massive inspiration for the Featheringtons and we talked about them all the time during our fittings?" Coughlan tweeted on Tuesday. "Because I feel like she should know this." As the world’s number one @bridgerton Stan does @KimKardashian know that the Kardash...

Shonda Rhimes ‘Shocked’ By ‘Bridgerton’ Fan Outrage Over Regé-Jean Page Exit

Shonda Rhimes has a few words for those who are still frosty about the loss of the “Hot Duke” on “Bridgerton.” It was announced last week that Regé-Jean Page, who played Simon Bassett, aka the Duke of Hastings, would not be returning for Season 2 of the steamy Netflix hit, which is executive produced by Rhimes.  The news upset many fans — including Sunny Hostin of “The View,” who expressed her woes on the talk show last week (and was offered a vibrator as consolation by co-host Whoopi Goldberg). On Tuesday, Rhimes told Vanity Fair that the fan outrage was a complete surprise.  “I was really shocked, because usually that happens when I’ve killed off somebody that’s been around for a while. Like, we didn’t kill him, he’s still alive,” the TV mogul told the magazine. “[Regé-Jean] is a power...

Shonda Rhimes Addresses Regé-Jean Page's Shocking 'Bridgerton' Exit: 'We Didn't Even Kill Him'

Shonda Rhimes was not prepared for fans' reaction after Bridgerton breakout star Regé-Jean Page announced he wouldn't return for the Netflix series's second season.  The Shondaland founder told Vanity Fair that she was "really shocked" when fans reacted with heartbreak and disbelief, with even stars like Kim Kardashian sharing their responses on social media. "We didn't even kill him, he's still alive," Rhimes joked, noting that she usually gets that sort of reaction when she's killed off a fan-favorite character who's been around for a long time. Page has only starred in the first season of the cheeky regency drama, but it was obviously an unforgettable performance! Although the Duke of Hastings continues to be a presence in author Julia Quinn's bestselling novels, he is no longer the pr...
