-I’m going away for a week and I’m really starting to worry that I’m going to miss more of the SATC cast dragging each other. The latest is Kim Cattrall saying of Sarah Jessica Parker: “I don’t know what her issue is. I never have,” and says her relationship with her costars was “toxic.”

Jimmy Kimmel continues to kill it with his monologues. In his latest, he says he has no time for those who claim it’s too soon to talk about gun legislation.

-Glee’s Mark Salling pleaded guilty to child porn possession and will serve 4-7 years in prison.

-There’s lots of talk about ABC’s new shows getting soft ratings last night, but The Mayor was up against This Is Us and still managed to  nearly double its timeslot comedy competition and tied CBS’s Bull among A18-49 at 9:30 p.m, while retaining 80% of  its lead-in.

-Here’s the first U.S. trailer for B.P.M., which dramatizes AIDS activism in early 1990s Paris. This got raves at Cannes and TIFF.

-It doesn’t help that I’m already disappointed in her for doing Woody Allen’s Wonder Wheel, which just dropped its first trailer.

Justin Timberlake Talks Britney Spears in Vanity Fair Italia


-I don’t get what’s happening with Justin Timberlake‘s face on the Vanity Fair Italia cover. Is it squished or something? Of course, he ended up rehashing the Britney Spears drama in the interview. He just can’t help himself, can he?

-In better cover images, I’m loving Kristen Stewart’s look on T.

-Us Weekly says Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have canceled their Bora Bora honeymoon. Wait, did we even know they set a date?!

Jared Leto acted like a crazy person on the set of Suicide Squad, reportedly whined about feeling “tricked” into being part of that film, criticized the movie without actually having seen it,  and yet has STILL managed to land a role in Blade Runner 2. On the plus side, Harrison Ford will squash him like a bug if he tries any of his method BS.

-I’m sure the words that accompany this Mike Colter interview are great. I just can’t seem to tear my eyes away from the photos long enough to read them.

-Shocking report: Amy Schumer‘s new book is under assault from a brigade of trolls.

-Meanwhile, Schumer freaked everyone out earlier today by tweeting “we aren’t making the show anymore” before clarifying that’s it’s not canceled, she’s just too busy touring right now to figure out when the next season will start filming.

-Also, here’s a great read about how disappointing the Schumer/Kurt Metzger situation has been and what it says about feminism and compromise.

Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee both sent Larry Wilmore lots of booze to ease the pain of cancellation.

Kanye West will open up 21 Pablo pop up shops this weekend, including one in Toronto. Please don’t let me by a $700 tshirt.

-I probably shouldn’t waste one of my TIFF tickets on the Black Mirror premiere no matter how cool the first images from the show look, right?

David O. Russell reportedly wants $1 million per episode to act like a jerk on the set of his new TV series.

-Frankly, I’m surprised it took this long for the dubious pregnancy rumours to surround Amal Clooney.

-The US Justice Department says it will end its use of private prisons. Orange Is The New Black, FTW! Who says TV can’t change the world?

-Comedy Bang Bang is ending its TV show. Frankly, it was so wonderfully weird I’m surprised it made it five whole seasons.

-I’m not sure how I feel about Jason Katims‘ insistence on a Parenthood revival. Great show but that finale was perfect; why mess with it?

-The screenwriter of 2016’s Ben-Hur says the movie doesn’t have gay subtext because he was only allow to adapt the book, not the 1959 movie. Can the original movie trademark subtext, though?

Tom Arnold penned a passionate essay arguing for gun control after losing his nephew to suicide.

Chris Evans’ Puppy Pushups

John Krasinski challenged Chris Evans and Miles Teller (ugh) to the #22PushUpChallenge, and Chris’ response features the most adorable dog distraction ever!

-You know what’s nuts? After that totally gross video that came out on Friday of Johnny Depp hurling a wine glass at Amber Heard, I still saw people on Twitter cape for him. I don’t get it. Let’s see what they say now that TMZ is reporting he once accidentally cut off the tip of his finger while fighting with her, then wrote on the wall in blood “Billy Bob” – the name of the actor he was accusing her of cheating on him with. Charming.

-Also, I appreciated this article on how Heard and Lindsay Lohan suffer from being imperfect victims.

Justin Bieber has threatened to make his Instagram private if commenters don’t stop attacking his new lady, Sofia Richie (who is Lionel Richie‘s daughter. You know who I found out this weekend is NOT actually Lionel Richie’s daughter? Nicole Richie. #MindBlown)

Justin‘s pleas for civility somehow led to a pissing contest between him and Selena Gomez, with her insinuating he cheated — and him shooting back with “oh I forgot about you and Zayn?” Not surprisingly, their fans spent the weekend having meltdowns.

Thomas Gibson is reporting mulling a lawsuit over his Criminal Minds firing. I guess that explains why his statement didn’t include an apology.

-Meanwhile, his ex-costar Shemar Moore is subtweeting him. (Also, I’m now going to end every Instagram video with “church is over.”)

Jared Padalecki got bad service from a waitress — so he posted a photo of her face to his 3M followers. And then he defended the post by comparing people who say he shouldn’t complain to people who say he shouldn’t be depressed. Nope, nope, all the nopes. You don’t get to play any of those cards, Dean.

This is a great read about how Mr Robot isn’t getting the critical reception this summer of Netflix shows like Stranger Things and The Get Down, but at least it’s trying something completely different.

-Speaking of Stranger Things, this interview/lovefest between Aaron Paul and the little girl who plays Eleven is all kinds of adorable. And then his wife jumps on the phone so she can fangirl too? Kill me now.

-Bad word of mouth resulted in a huge Batman V Superman-like box office drop in Suicide Squad’s second weekend. So why is WB still heavily investing in Zack Snyder’s vision of the DCEU?

-Lowly movie studio employees are rising up. First we got last week’s open letter to the WB and now the comments section of an interview with the directors of Sausage Party was overrun with anonymous sources claiming animators were reportedly forced to work for free and generally treated like poo. (I saw the film over the weekend. I thought it was just meh.)

Tom Hiddleston is blaming the deluge of photos of him with Taylor Swift on the fact that “we all live in a world where every phone has a camera.” Sure, but do we also all live in a world where everyone has long-lensed professional cameras on remote beaches?

The Nightly Show With Larry Wilmore was canceled today, which sucks because they’re not even going to get to cover the election. It’s not exactly surprising giving its lack of ratings and buzz.  Wilmore released a statement about “The Unblackening” of the Comedy Network.

-This is weak sauce: Adele says she was approached by the Super Bowl to do the next halftime show and declined, so the NFL and Pepsi ran to Billboard with a statement about how there was no “formal” offer. Yeah. Because she declined.

Bella Thorne and Gregg Sulkin split after more than a year together. I have no idea who either of these people are, but my Twitter timeline is devastated. Sorry?
