-Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner should not say the n-word. Especially not when there’s a camera pointed at her. But pretty much just never. (She claims she didn’t say it, and says she was actually saying “motherf***er.”)
-Congrats to Zooey Deschanel, who welcomed a baby boy with husband Jacob Pechenik. They gave him a surprisingly non-twee name: Charlie.
–Lil Bow Wow just got caught in a lie about flying on a private plane and this is the best use of the internet ever.
–Lena Dunham blasted Us Weekly for praising her weight loss, since said weight loss was due to a medical issue.
-The trailer for Orange Is The New Black looks intense. I’m really digging the premise of the new season: it all unfolds real time over three days.
–Nicole Kidman was on Ellen today and demonstrated to the world that she does indeed know how to clap.
–Max Landis keeps saying stupid shit and getting called out for it. (The comments on that article made my day.)
–Prince Harry’s buddy Usain Bolt weighed in on Meghan Markle, saying “She’s definitely a nice girl.” We all know that , Usain. Give us the dirt already!
-Planet of the Apes star Estella Warren was arrested for domestic violence over the weekend when she reportedly threw cleaning liquid at her boyfriend during an argument.
-Yesterday, everyone was gushing over Tom Holland‘s performance on Lip Sync Battle , but don’t sleep on his Spider-Man costar Zendaya doing Bruno Mars.
–Simone Biles just gave the best “don’t tell me to smile” clapback ever.
-In yet another example of whitewashing, Shameless’s Zach McGowan has been cast to play Hawaiian native Ben Kanahele in the upcoming film Ni’ihau. Because Hollywood apparently forgot about Jason Momoa?
-Just 13 months after it ended its 15-season run on Fox, American Idol is heading to ABC. This feels way, way too soon.
–Frequency and No Tomorrow are the first CW shows in years to not make it to a second season. Meanwhile, NBC renewed Taken even though no it basically got no ratings or buzz. I’m guessing this doesn’t bode well for Timeless.
–Richard Simmons is suing the National Enquirer over a “cruel” sex-change story, saying says he has “a legal right to insist that he not be portrayed as someone he is not.”
-Speaking of lawsuits, Demi Moore is being sued over the death of a man who drowned in her pool in 2015.
–Jimmy Kimmel fake apologized for saying all kids should have access to health care.
-Mo Ryan’s Variety piece on Twin Peaks is stunning — even though it doesn’t reveal much about the revival. One interesting tidbit: Showtime chief David Nevins gave Lynch full creative control over the new series, recognizing that interference from the network caused the original series to derail in its second season.
-I got teary watching Anthony Edwards get teary in this video of him talking about Dr. Greene’s death on ER, which aired 15 years ago today.
–The birthday cake Amal Clooney got George is intense!
-Edge of Tomorrow is getting a sequel with Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise which is great because that’s an underrated action flick that was saddled with a bad name. Not so great? The sequel title is even worse: Live Die Repeat and Repeat.
-Watch Kirsten Dunst trip on weed in the Woodshock trailer.
