JLo and ARod Cover Vanity Fair

Jennifer Lopez ARod Vanity Fair

Jennifer Lopez and A-Rod are on the cover of Vanity Fair for … reasons? I can’t quite figure it out but at least the photos are great and seem really focused on her butt.

-Netflix just announced that they’ve suspended House of Cards production in the wake of Kevin Spacey sexual-assault allegations. I’m glad they’re responding quickly but I would much rather see them just kill off his character and let his costars and crew finish the final season.

-Meanwhile, Hollywood took to Twitter to sound off over Kevin Spacey‘s weak response to allegations that he once  sexually assaulted a 14-yr-old boy.

Andy Dick has been fired from a movie over claims of sexual harassment and misconduct on set. His oh-so-gross response?  “I might have kissed somebody on the cheek to say goodbye and then licked them. That’s my thing.” This guy has a long history of creepiness.

-Everyone was freaked out by Adam Sandler repeated touching Claire Foy‘s knee on The Graham Norton Show (I love Emma Thompson‘s face during it) but Foy says it was NBD.

Wendy Williams says she’s “home and hydrating” after passing out live on air.

Tiffany Haddish from Girls Trip is going to host SNL and I can’t wait.

-I’m almost done Stranger Things and my two biggest revelations of the season: I suddenly love Steve, and Hopper can get it. It helps that the guy who plays Hopper basically runs his Instagram feed like it’s a stan account.

Bette Midler has strong feelings about a Hocus Pocus TV reboot. She’s not wrong.

-Here’s the first teaser for the upcoming Chance the Rapper horror movie Slice.

Kevin Spacey Tries to Deflect, The Internet’s Not Having It

-Wow, Hollywood is imploding. I really thought the Weinstein scandal would make waves for a couple of weeks and then fade away, allowing everyone to return to business as usual but the opposite has happened: the floodgates have opened. The latest big star to washed away in the wave is Kevin Spacey. Last night, Buzzfeed released an interview with Anthony Rapp (a Broadway vet who is currently starring in Star Trek Discovery), in which Rapp says Spacey climbed on top of him in bed when Rapp was just 14. Spacey, who clearly had time to craft a response as Buzzfeed made it clear they repeatedly reached out for comment, responded with a calculated, bullshit statement about how he must have been drunk and oh btw, he’s gay. And of course, his long-awaited coming out is what a lot of headlines focused on today, overshadowing the assault claim. A lot of people much smarter than I am wrote about how his coming out grossly conflates homosexuality with pedophilia. Read their takes here, here, here, and here.

-Meanwhile, Netflix announced that the new season of House of Cards will be its final (though this decision was likely made well before its main star’s life blew up.)

-The mighty keep falling: Lionsgate exec Andrew Kramer has exited amid harassment allegations.

-Also breaking this weekend: Ronan Farrow‘s latest Weinstein story, which includes new, disturbing accusations from Annabella Sciorra and Daryl Hannah.  The NYT also dropped a powerful portrait of Rose McGowan, who alleges Harvey Weinstein offered $1M in hush money. More women have come forward with Weistein allegations and the NYT is now reporting the assault allegations go back to the 1970s. The timeline is now four decades long.

-Have you watch the second season of Stranger Things yet? If felt like the entire world already finished it. The show broke Twitter records over the weekend.

-Speaking of Stranger Things, I love when actors really lean into a ship.

-The Bad Moms cast is making the rounds on the sequel’s press tour (I’ve already bought my tickets!) and Kristen Bell shared a video of Mila Kunis crushing it on Price Is Right.

Kristen Bell and Gwyneth Paltrow both hilariously mocked their own movies with their Halloween costumes. I have never liked either of them more.

Nina Dobrev, I expected more from you. Hollywood, repeat after me: “culture is not a costume.”

-Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian dressed as Aaliyah for Halloween – and the Internet is not pleased.

Selena Gomez and The Weeknd have called it quits after nearly 10 months together– and there’s talk that she’s reconnected with Justin Bieber.

-Also, Selena and her BFF who gave her a kidney were interviewed on the Today Show, and things got teary.

Mick Jagger, 74, stepped out in Paris with his ‘new love interest’, who is 22. That’s swell.

-At 96% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, Thor: Ragnarok is currently the MCU’s highest rated film.

-A new X Files promo dropped this weekend. I can’t believe I’m letting myself get sucked back in…


Rihanna Is Stunning On Vogue

Rihanna Vogue Arabia

Rihanna looks amazing on the cover of Vogue Arabia, but some people are wondering if it’s cultural appropriation?

-The Good Doctor is not just the biggest hit of the fall TV season, it’s breaking ratings records. This thing is averaging a stunning 17.4 million viewers!

-I found The Crown very pretty but ultimately way too slow to keep my interest. But news that Olivia Coleman will take over as Queen Elizabeth II intrigues me. I wonder if she’ll tell anyone to “move away from me now or I will piss in a cup and throw it at you“?

Taylor Swift’s new video proves she was the only one who saw Ghost in the Shell.

Kristen Bell says a Veronica Mars limited series is going to happen. Here for it.

-If you’re wondering why your connection is really slow today, it’s because Alexander Skarsgard appeared on the red carpet with a half bald head and the internet melted.

-Good on Gal Gadot for saying that Wonder Woman’s backstory in Batman v Superman made no sense for that character.

-This Anna Faris interview with Colbert is incredibly uncomfortable and makes me sad.

-If directing Thor makes Taika Waititi a huge star, which in turn makes everyone discover What We Do In The Shadows, that would be swell.

Robert Rodriguez says casting Rose McGowan in Grindhouse was a F-U to Harvey Weinstein.

-With today’s premiere of Stranger Things, I now want to protect Millie Bobby Brown more than ever.

-This Justice League TV spot stuffs a ton of new footage into 30 seconds.
