The Good Wife Loses Kalinda

-A couple of days ago my friend and I were talking about how there’s clearly some backstage drama happening between The Good Wife’s Archie Panjabi and Julianna Margulies, and now comes news that Panjabi is leaving the show. The plot thickens!

-Speaking of Good Wife actors, I’m really hoping this Chris Noth quote calling Carrie Bradshaw “such a whore” was somehow taken out of context.

-New couple alert? Evan Rachel Wood might be dating Katherine Moennig (best known from The L Word, but who I’ve been girl-crushing on since she played Ian Somerhalder’s crossdressing love interest in Young Americans).

-In Neil Patrick Harris’s new book, he talks about how Dustin Diamond is one of the “more unpleasant people” he’s worked with, how he pushed for a Barney-Robin relationship on HIMYM, and he once yelled at Patti LuPone.

-In other NPH news, he’s just been tapped to host the Oscars. Finally! The video he posted about it is great.

Robin Thicke (aka the living embodiment of Axe Body Spray) threw himself a divorce party with fellow skeeves Leonardo DiCaprio and Emile Hirsch. I’m just going to go ahead and pretend I didn’t read that Tom Hardy was also there

-I love and adore Grantland (you know, the non-sports parts), so I’m finding all the think pieces about the return of Bill Simmons post-suspension and what the next year could mean fascinating.

Taylor Swift‘s new Diet Coke commercial involves her hallucinating a ton of kittens. This is my nightmare.

-Seriously? Solid sitcoms like Enlisted and Happy Endings get cancelled with very little fanfare, but the internets explodes over news that we can rewatch Friends for the millionth time? I don’t get life.

-Sometimes when I’m having a hard day at work, I just watch Stephen Amell‘s weird workout videos and be thankful that my job doesn’t involve doing something called “the ice cream maker.”

-Warner/DC just unveiled a huge movie schedule that will include Wonder Woman, Suicide Squad, Green Lantern, Aquaman and more.  Good on them for slating the first female and person of color led superhero films, but how can the dour Ezra Miller and the bubbly Grant Gustin both play The Flash?

-OITNB’s Uzo Aduba looks great in Harper’s Bazaar (though I’m not sure why every photo had to include a nod to her ‘crazy eyes’).

-Someday, the awesome Krysten Ritter is going to find the TV success she deserves. Today is not that day.

-The drama around Amanda Bynes’ Twitter account is almost as crazy as the drama around the actress herself.

Emma Thompson has been brought in to fix the screenplay for the third Bridget Jones movie. If anyone can remove the suckage of the book it’s based on, it’s her.

Emma Stone played Box of Lies with Jimmy Fallon last night, and it was an adorable failure.
