King of Cups and The Empress

Look, sometimes you don’t want excitement or drama, you just want to sit down and relax like a boring grown-up.

Hi Nonnie. It’s no bother at all! Many of us thought that Sam and Cait were planning to reveal their marriage at the Golden Globes in January 2016. They had been acting like giddy newlyweds for much of the year, especially at the PaleyFest in March. 

Sam asked Cait where her ring was. She’s showing it to him here:

Sam kissed Cait in front of everyone several times:

After Cait turned to Sam (off mic) and said, “You’re my favorite husband,” Sam responded with a huge grin and replied, “Yes!”

There were many interesting tweets as well:

Sam was increasingly referring to Cait as his wife, a step up from “wifey” (which some construed to mean his TV wife), and “the Mrs.”

Their giddiness reached an all-time high on Flirty Thursday, the day before IFH Friday. They couldn’t keep their hands off each other, and Sam’s body was completely in Cait’s space. Look where his right leg is here! (This is not my gif, and I don’t know who to credit.)

They continued to act like this until the morning of the IFH (Interview From Hell). Based on what I heard mentioned from people who were there, they were happy when they entered the building then were immediately called into a meeting with RDM and Chris Albrecht, CEO of Starz (and maybe others). Sam was visibly upset when he came out. Shortly thereafter we were given the denial during the IFH. We were expecting a reveal, and Kristin dos Santos, who was doing the interview, was expecting the same. She was visibly shaken. 

Here’s what I think went down: Sam and Cait were vacationing in Costa Rica the week before the Golden Globes. Due to bad weather, they were unable to get back to Los Angeles for the People’s Choice Awards. Since they had been tweeting about looking forward to it, they were definitely missed. I believe someone (RDM?) informed Chris Albrecht, who forced them to do the denial. Look carefully at both Sam and Cait during the IFH. Sam looks like he’s been crying, and Cait looks like she’s trying to pretend it doesn’t matter. Instead of looking like newlyweds, they looked like someone had died. I did the following comparison of the difference between Flirty Thursday and IFH Friday. We’re talking about one day. Something drastic happened, and his name is Albrecht.

Lionsgate Films (LG) was looking to acquire Starz at this time, and LG has a long history of not wanting their leads together (think Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart of the Twilight series). They didn’t want anything to jeopardize the potential $4.4 billion deal. Add in Chris Albrecht, who has a history of abusing women. He was arrested for one assault, and his previous employer, HBO, paid settlements for at least one other. I’m sure you’ve been reading about Harvey Weinstein. These industry heads have unlimited power and can literally ruin an actor’s career if they don’t follow orders. Enter the narrative with fake SOs. 

I was upset for several days after viewing the IFH. It was like a punch to my gut. Luckily, it didn’t take long for my logic to reassert itself. I saw it as a power play by TPTB (The Powers That Be). This was the last thing Sam and Cait wanted. Sam was so excited, it appears he told his stylist, Mr. Monty Jackson, about their marriage before the IFH. Mr. Monty apparently didn’t get the memo about the denial and posted this photo of Cait and Sam with the caption: MR + MRS. I heard it previously said MR + MRS HEUGHAN, but the Heughan was removed.

To summarize, I believe Sam and Cait were planning to announce their marriage around the time of the Golden Globes. They were not only prevented from doing that by Chris Albrecht, but were forced to deny their relationship and pretend to be with others. In my opinion, both Sam and Cait are the good, kind, generous and compassionate people that everyone who has met them has described them to be. Having to pretend to be something you’re not – especially in Sam’s case – has taken a toll. It’s no wonder Sam looked exhausted and on the edge during the Outlander premiere week in New York. 

I pray that the revelations of Harvey Weinstein’s decades of abuse will lead to a change in the culture in Hollywood, including removing known abusers such as Chris Albrecht from power. No one should be able to destroy someone’s career for not yielding to their every demand.

Thanks for your Ask, Nonnie. Sorry it is so long, but I felt the details were important for newbies who weren’t around then.
