Kim Kardashian Robbed at Gunpoint of $10 Million in Jewels

-Jesus christ. I get that people don’t like Kim Kardashian, but the amount of glee I saw on Twitter today over her robbery was gross. She was staying at a hotel known for its safety when she was bound  and gagged  with handcuffs and tape and then put in the bathtub by two gunmen while she pleaded for her life and asked them to think of her babies. Don’t celebrate that.

Chrissy TeigenJamie Lee Curtis, James Corden and other celebs jumped to her defense on social media.

-Kim’s bodyguard Pascal Duvier was reportedly looking after her sisters at the time. Also, the ring in the above tweek may be the $4 million one stolen from her.

-Meanwhile, Kanye West stopped his concert mid-song when he found out what had happened.

Nate Parker was on 60 Minutes, and it was pretty terrible:  “I was vindicated. I was proven innocent, and I feel terrible that this woman isn’t here. Her family had to deal with that, but as I sit here, an apology is — no.” He then followed up with an equally terrible interview on GMA this morning. Seriously, you’re going to try to convince mainstream America to see your movie by being snippy to Robin Roberts? If you don’t want to answer these questions, then don’t do the interviews. That’s PR 101.

Blake Lively attended her friend’s wedding in NYC just days after giving birth because she’s a better person than all of us.

-TMZ says Angelina Jolie is adamant that Brad Pitt should not face criminal charges for getting physical with 15-year-old Maddox on their private jet. (This is good positioning for her; makes it clear that she doesn’t want to destroy him, just protect her kids).

-Meanwhile, Angelina keeps adding power attorneys to her team.

Lindsay Lohan says she lost part of her finger in a boat accident, and then followed up with a tweet that said: “To make this very clear. The bottom part of my finger was ripped off. It was not “chopped” or “severed” off.” Okaaaay.

-When watching Jude Law in The Young Pope trailer, you can almost hear the boardroom convos that took place. “Let’s make a show about a pope. But a SEXY pope!”

-Is the title of Ben Affleck‘s solo Batman movie really called The Batman? Huh.

-Also, Ben tweeting at Chris Evans was quite cute.

-A not-so-shocking new report suggests Donald Trump sexually harassed female cast and crew on The Apprentice.

-Also, I’m not a huge Alec Baldwin fan but he crushed it as Trump on SNL.

-This is an interesting take on how Colin Jost and Michael Che are the wrong anchors for Weekend Update.

-Vulture has an excerpt from Lil Wayne’s prison journal, Gone ’Til November, written when he was serving eight months at Rikers. Read about how he called one of the gay inmates “sweetheart,” how he wanted to hook up with his female C.O., and how Drake told him on one visit that he slept with his girl, which leads to this literary gem: “As a man I’ll admit it: That shit really fucked me up, but hey, fuck that ho!”

-It’s been 10 years since FNL premiered, and 20 since The Notebook. I’m old.

-I didn’t go to Austin City Limits this year, but if any musical festival is going to lead to a cool, laid-back encounter with Thom Yorke, it’s that one.

-I’m bummed that Hayley Atwell‘s new show is getting poorly reviewed. We lost Agent Carter for this?!

-Oh, how the mighty have fallen. There’s a trailer for the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie starring Johnny Depp — except Johnny Depp isn’t even in it.
