Monica Wright, the championship winning WNBA guard, is revealing that she is no longer engaged to NBA star Kevin Durant.
Durant, the 25-year-old Oklahoma City Thunder forward, made headlines last year for being engaged to fellow Christian Wright, the 26-year-old who won the 2013 WNBA Championship with the Minnesota Lynx. While both basketball players have been vocal about their Christian faith, it seems Wright felt Durant was not willing to let go of some things in his lifestyle that she believed he should.

Prince Harry is never one to hold back his true feelings, and when asked at a social media event whether he liked Twitter or Facebook, he admitted to actually "quite hating" Twitter. Harry attended a class on social networking in order to help promote the Invictus Games, a Paralympic-style event for wounded service personnel, a group that Harry holds near to his heart.
"I would love to get involved and go on social media, and if it was for causes like this I really would," Harry said when asked if he would use Twitter during the Invictus Games. "The issue for myself and my family, put quite simply, is that it's very hard for me to tweet about the Invictus Games and tweet about something that means a lot to me, whereas I at the same time really quite hate Twitter by the invasion of privacy. I think you all understand what I'm talking about."
Harry and his brother William have been fiercely protective of their privacy whenever possible, but especially after the death of their mother, Princess Diana. The young men try to live normal lives and avoid the press and paparazzi if at all possible. The paparazzi was implicated in Diana's death, leading to even more bad blood between the royals and the photographers. more >>
