-This is an interesting read on how Hollywood is in danger of another major hack like the Sony one. There’s reportedly been at least a half-dozen extortion attempts against Hollywood firms over the past 6 months alone and in each case, the hackers demanded less than $80,000 so the FBI advised victims to just pay the ransom.
-Meanwhile, TMZ has a story about Solange and Jay Z shopping for jewelry together at Mr. Flawless yesterday. They’re sticking to it, even though Mr. Flawless himself told Wendy Williams they weren’t in his shop.
-Whatever was the cause of the elevator fight, Wendy Williams is determined to get to the bottom of it! She has a pretty compelling theory that seems to combine Jay‘s history with Rachel Roy with a bunch of blind items.
–Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are letting their kids plan their wedding, which means it’s going to be either Disney or paintball-themed.
-Where there’s Miranda Kerr, there’s drama. Her new boyfriend had a knock-down, drag-out fight with his best friend in the middle of the street.
-What feud? Ryan Murphy insists Naya Rivera and Lea Michele are both returning to Glee next season. Of course, who even knows what’s happening next season after last night’s dramatically low ratings. Even The Originals beat it!
–Miley Cyrus claims that her recent onstage rant (“I’m gonna tell those motherf–kers that broke my heart, particularly one, to suck my fat d–k and to enjoy hearing this song for the rest of your life”) had nothing to do with Liam Hemsworth.
-CBS announced their fall schedule and surprised everyone by passing on How I Met Your Dad. CBS boss Nina Tassler told reporters there were “elements of the pilot … that didn’t work out” and she asked the creators to retool it, but they refused. Considering all the flack they got from the HIMYM finale, you’d think those guys would be open to some constructive criticism.
-This is so sad: the director of Searching for SugarMan is dead at 36, possibly by suicide. That was my favourite documentary last year.
–Prince William hosted a star-studded event last night. I’m obsessed with Emma Watson‘s lip colour!
-This roundtable with the cast and crew of The West Wing is awesome, especially when they start bitching about the long days. Says Bradley Whitford: “The hours on that show were so bad. I mean, just horrible. I remember… saying, ‘The invisible carnage of the unf**ked wives and the children not being read to is just wafting out.’ ”
