-I’m having a rough week, so forgive me if I choose to believe this Vanity Fair interview with the Gossip Girl cast for the show’s 10-year anniversary is a personal gift to me from the universe. There’s lots of great tidbits, including how Blake Lively and Leighton Meester “were not friends,” how Blake and Penn Badgley hid their breakup from the crew for months, and how Blake used to send photos of dolls to Leonardo DiCaprio when they dated. I also love how Leighton just sounds *so* over it, and Ed Westwick admits he still doesn’t know who Gossip Girl is.
–Leah Remini says she refused to try to convert Kevin James to Scientology despite the organization pressuring her to do so. And now he’s gifted her with a sitcom role, so that all worked out for her.
-Blade Runner 2049 is rumoured to be the longest blockbuster since Interstellar. All the sighs.
-After 27 seasons—27!!!—Simpsons composer Alf Clausen has been fired.
–Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are reportedly in couple’s therapy to learn how to be better co-parents. I’m rooting for them, however their family looks.
–Kanye West is now being counter-sued by his insurer, who points to their drug and alcohol policies.
-Here’s the first trailer for Mr. Robot season three. I kinda forgot about that show.
-Of course TJ Miller is a frequent Yelp reviewer. Of course he is.
–Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves teaming up for a movie is making my inner 90s geek so very happy.
-I feel like we’ve all talked about Justin Bieber’s testicles way too much this week, and it’s only Wednesday.
-This explanation of the Sansa/Ayra stuff from this season of Game of Thrones makes me hate it even more.
-Yikes. Katy Perry is reportedly being sued by a stagehand who lost her toe.
-I can’t believe there are no new movies at the box office this weekend. I can’t remember the last time that happened. And it’s a long weekend!
