-As I mentioned last week, some recent Twitter chatter between TV critics made me think the infamous Good Wife feud had less to do with Julianna Margulies than I originally assumed. But even if that’s true, her comments at the New Yorker fest are INSANE. Why not continue to keep your mouth shut instead of suddenly blaming the split screen scene on an easily detectable lie about scheduling conflicts? And trying to throw feminism into the mix? Nope. And dismissing it all as “gossip” when it actually affected the show in a material way? Hard pass. Even though she might still be at fault and calling Julianna out on Twitter is probably not going to benefit her career, part of me kind of loves that Archie Panjabi is dragging her.
-This article on how Beyonce manages her image is fantastic.
–Mr. Cameron Diaz just found an ingenious way to deflect attention away from his receding hairline.
–Nicole Kidman looks really good in her Interview photo shoot. Less frozen than usual and with great hair.
–Serena Williams gets to date Drake and BFF with Colton Haynes? I have so much to learn from her…
-During a performance at Australian Football League Grand Finale, two of Ellie Goulding’s songs started playing at the same time while she held her microphone at her side and looked confused — but she later laughed off lip synching speculation. Um, she knows we have eyes, right?
-Howard Stern got Claire Danes to sort of talk about that time Billy Crudup left a pregnant Mary Louise Parker for her.
–Hugh Grant is about to have his fourth kid in four years. Mazel.
-Hoo boy. Meryl Streep, who’s already getting heat for that comment distancing herself from feminism, posed wearing a really unfortunate t-shirt that says “I’d rather be a rebel than a slave” for a Time Out interview (as did Carey Mulligan). As if slaves had the choice. Yes, I’m well aware that it’s a quote from Emmeline Pankhurst, but it’s problematic. This was basically my entire Twitter TL today:
–Amy Schumer, Jennifer Lawrence, Chris Pratt and Aziz Ansari all hung out this weekend and took videos of it, just in case you need to feel bad about your life.
-Speaking of people hanging out without you, Britney Spears went to Kate Hudson’s game night.
-When Michael Fassbender says he’s going to get you a pressure cooker for your birthday, he’s not just messing with you.
-The CW ordered more episodes of iZombie which is good because I love that show, but I kind of love it because it’s only 13 episodes. Also, the CW is in the weird position of having so many successful shows that they’re not cancelling anything, which means they have more TV than hours of programming available.
-Rihanna, sweetie, did you mean to wear this? On purpose?
-The upcoming HBO show Vinyl, starring Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, and Juno Temple, just released a new trailer and they had me at Bobby Cannavale.
