-In other baby news, did Prince William just reveal that they’re expecting a boy?

-I didn’t read Cardi B‘s GQ interview  right away because a Caity Weaver piece deserves to be savored. She once again proved she’s the best feature writer in the biz with this thoughtful, non-judgemental profile, which covers the singer’s stripper past, illegal butt injections, and her love of political trivia.

-Meanwhile Cardi has denied rumours of a feud with Nicki Minaj, but Nicki now says it was real for a while.

-Variety’s Power of Women New York issue features Tina Fey, Alicia Keys, Emily Blunt, Tarana Burke and Margaret Atwood. All of the interviews are great but I especially liked Fey’s.  (“In comedy rooms, women are treated like expensive cappuccino machines. It’s like, ‘We have one. Why would we have two?'”)

Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson are here to remind us of the power of eye masks.

Eve remembered the time Janet Jackson  took care of her after someone drugged her drink at an awards show afterparty.

-The first trailer for Pose is here and I am here for it! James Van Der Beek and Kate Mara  star in Ryan Murphy‘s LGBTQ-themed dance-musical set in New York City in the 1980s. The FX show features the largest-ever cast of transgender actors in a scripted series.

Martin Scorsese is set to direct an SCTV reunion documentary for Netflix.

Julianna Margulies‘ wig is wigging me out in these Dietland photos. I get that she seems to have something in her contract where she’ll only wear wigs, but good lord, can they not find ones that look good?! This is somehow worse that the ones from The Good Wife.

Cameron Diaz has reportedly arranged a private jet to fly a dozen of Gwyneth Paltrow‘s friends to Mexico this weekend to celebrate her upcoming wedding.

-Shameless/Roseanne star Emma Kenney says she is seeking treatment for “her battles.”

-Fresh Off the Boat star Randall Park has joined the cast of Aquaman — even though the movie has already been shot and is in “pick ups” phase. That’s a not great sign.

Sandra Bullock and her friends assemble to rob Anne Hathaway at the MET Gala in the new Oceans 8 trailer. Not gonna lie, I fist-pumped at least twice watching this.

Tina Fey’s Sheetcaking Skit Stirs Controversy

Tina Fey appeared on the Weekend Update special last night and urged people to ignore the neo-Nazis, stay safe inside and eat some sheetcake. The reactions to it were swift and judge-y. Personally I didn’t love it either, but then again I tend to sideeye some of her race-based comedy bits to begin with. I usually LOVE Fey (I’ve re-read Bossypants so many times I can quote parts of it), but there has definitely been things she’s done on Kimmy Schmidt or Whisky Tango Foxtrot that aren’t great. So I understand why people are arguing that the suggestion from a white woman to ignore neo-nazis is kind of what got us into this mess in the first place. On the other hand, a lot of people think she was gently winking and mocking her own message (with the sheetcake being a spin on “let them eat cake”). It’s entirely possible, but maybe now is not the week for subtle, easily misinterpreted comedy?

Taylor Swift just went dark on social media, leading to speculation that she’s about to make a big announcement (a new album, maybe?). She wiped all profile pics from her Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram accounts, and she’s no longer following anyone on Twitter.

-I’ve listened to Justin Bieber’s new song four times today. I’m not proud.

-I also really like Miley Cyrus’ new song. It’s like my music tastes are Benjamin Buttoning.

-Finally, Patty Jenkins is closing a deal to direct Wonder Woman 2. She reportedly held out for more money, and this deal could make her the highest paid female director in Hollywood.

-Speaking of ladies making bank, Emma Stone is 2017’s highest-paid actress, according to Forbes. Next in line  are Jennifer Aniston, who pulled in $25.5 million, and Jennifer Lawrence, who earned $24 million.

-Luke Cage explains Danny Rand’s white privilege to him in this scene in The Defenders and it’s amazing. Here’s the backstory.

-Meanwhile, the reviews of The Defenders are mixed at best. THR likes it, but Vulture calls it “a grim slog” and the NYT says it’s “less than the sum of its superheroes.”

James Corden started his show with an emotional monologue about the Barcelona attack.

-Your internet boyfriend Idris Elba is on crutches. Who wants to volunteer to play nurse? Ok fine, I’ll do it!

-I gave up on Transparent a while ago but somehow came across this clip today of Judith Light singing “Hand In My Pocket” and ended up bawling at my desk. So, that happened.

Emilia Clarke shared a cute Instagram video of Kit Harington and it almost made it seem like he has a personality!

Kal Penn putting Trump on blast is the best use of Twitter this week.

Blake Lively‘s photoshop skills are on point.

Cobie Smulders, Justin Long and John Cho star in the Literally, Right Before Aaron trailer.



Sofia Vergara Poses Nude for Women’s Health


Sofia Vergara stripped down for Women’s Health’s Naked Issue — and looks amazing. She said, “Here’s a woman, 45, being able to show her body. It’s not like before, when it was just young girls who would make the cover of a magazine.”

-Whoa – Vanity Fair just clapped back at Angelina Jolie. Her lawyers tried to get them to print a retraction to the part of her cover story which describes the cruel casting process of her new movie, which Jolie later claimed they took out of context. VF responded with the exact damaging quote, which they confirmed the reporter had captured on not one, but two recording devices. For someone who’s usually so on top of it, this is a major misstep for her.

-I don’t watch the Real Housewives of NYC but everyone on my Twitter TL has lots of opinions about LuAnn’s divorce.

-I haven’t had a chance to read all of Aziz Anzari’s GQ profile, though I did read the part about him quitting the internet.

-Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later starts streaming tomorrow (just in time for the long weekend!), and the reviews are great.

Natalie Portman‘s sci-fi film Annihilation just got a 2018 release date. I’m a little concerned that’s it’ll be in the wasteland that is February, but it costars Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson and Oscar Isaac so I’m still here for it.

-It was NBC’s turn at the TCAs today. They confirmed that they’ve already picked up the Will & Grace reboot for a second season even though the first hasn’t aired yet, announced that Tina Fey will be starring in seven episodes of the next season of Great News, touted a plan to foster female directors in their quest for gender parity (sounds nice, but I want to know more about how they’ll implement it), the president of the network threw out some incredibly impressive rating numbers (26 million people watch This Is Us per episode on all platforms?! And they claim they’re able to monetize digital?!), and for some reason they still seem to think that the mystery of Jack’s death is why everyone watches This Is Us.

-Speaking of the TCAs, here’s a recap of yesterday’s Everwood reunion. *sob*

Jessica Chastain called out CBS over the lack of female leads in new fall series.

Iwan Rheon’s appearance on Kimmel reminded me of his character on Misfits instead of his character on Game of Thrones, which can only be a good thing.

-Here’s Margot Robbie and Domhnall Gleeson in the Goodbye Christopher Robin trailer. If this is  based on the true origin story of Winnie the Pooh, then that national heritage commercial may have led us astray…
