Meghan Markle Goes Rogue

-As soon as I saw the photos and video of Meghan Markle‘s surprise appearance at the British Fashion Awards, I knew Lainey would lose it over the excessive belly-cupping. But were the stomach grabs and protocol-breaking dark nail polish her way of trying to send a message?

-The Oscars might move ahead with no host — because clearly NO WOMEN EXIST!

-In completely unrelated news, the crowd who attended Amy Poehler‘s Smart Girls anniversary dinner was amazing.

-If the final season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend doesn’t make my top 10 list this year, it’s going to come really, really close. This gag reel is also a delight.

-To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and The Kissing Booth were Netflix’s most-rewatched original movies this year. I only contributed 27% of that.

-All of the photos Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson are teasing from the Men in Black reboot are getting me hyped.

-There’s been lots of talk in the wake of #MeToo about how terribly Megan Fox has been treated. When asked by the NYT if she thinks she’s owed an apology she said “I mean, that’s a lovely sentiment, and I appreciate that” before adding that she has no plans to tell her stories.

Tyler Perry surprised holiday shoppers by buying out the entire layaway department at two Walmarts, which is all kinds of great.

Jennifer Aniston Talks “Successful” Marriages and Lack of Social Media

Jennifer Aniston Elle Magazine

-In her new Elle cover storyJennifer Aniston talks about her marriages (“My marriages, they’ve been very successful, in [my] personal opinion…and when they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didn’t exist within that arrangement anymore”), potential future children (“Who knows what the future holds in terms of a child and a partnership — how that child comes in… or doesn’t? And now with science and miracles, we can do things at different times than we used to be able to”) and her lack of social media presence (“If I’m sitting here posting something about my dogs or I’m Boomeranging my coffee mug in the morning, that’s just giving away one more piece of something that is mine”).

-The Oscars host search continued. Kevin Hart stepped down from hosting less than 24 hours after being announced because people found his (not very hidden) anti-gay tweets. I don’t believe this will hurt his career AT ALL, but those tweets weren’t secret. The Academy should have known better.

-Now the search is on for another host. Tiffany Haddish and/or The Rock would be awesome, no?

-The Cut writer of that Priyanka Chopra piece has apologized. But where’s her editor in all this?

-Well, look at that: Doctor Who with Jodie Whittaker is a ratings success (which is funny because I saw a lot of fanboy tweets talking about what a failure it is….)

Saoirse Ronan is reportedly dating her Mary, Queen of Scots costar Jack Lowden.

-Wow, did I ever love this story on how marketing screwed over Jennifer’s Body, because no one knew how to sell a horror movie made by women for teen girls, and because everyone at the time was roorting for Diablo Cody and Megan Fox to fail.

-Seeing as how the Game of Thrones crew has talked a lot about filming fake scenes and printing fake scripts, I’m not convinced this leaked spoiler is legit.

-The Avengers: Endgame trailer is all anyone’s talking about. I can’t believe it’s coming out in April (just a month after Captain Marvel). I’m in no way complaining, but it feels like I *just* saw Infinity War. Also, here’s trailer, but with Boyz II Men’s End Of The Road  instead, which makes it even better.
