Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Set a Date

-Mark your calendars and plan to get up in the middle of the night to watch a fancy wedding: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will marry on May 19, 2018.

-Why was Tiffany Haddish‘s new book co-written by bro-douche Tucker Max. WHYYYYYYY?????

Dustin Hoffman has now been accused of exposing himself to teen girls and assaulting more women.

-Meanwhile, the NYPD designated a team within the Special Victims Unit to review sexual misconduct allegations involving famous men that are “coming up almost daily.”

-JFC, can we just cancel Matt Damon already? On the current reckoning currently dismantling Hollywood, he had lots of crappy things to say, including “You know, there’s a difference between, you know, patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right?” He also talks about the high “price” Louis CK has paid.  WTF. People much smarter than I am have already outlined why his statements suck so hard, including his ex Minnie Driver, who tweeted “Gosh it’s so *interesting how men with all these opinions about women’s differentiation between sexual misconduct, assault and rape reveal themselves to be utterly tone deaf and as a result, systemically part of the problem (*profoundly unsurprising)”.

-Speaking of problematic statements from actors, Tom Hanks just said “If you threw out every film or TV show that was made by an a–hole, Netflix would go out of business” and tried to argue for the separation of art and artists by saying “Picasso was a womanizer, this is not excusing anybody…I think work does speak for itself, but character does come into the conversation at some point, but I think that lands over time.” Who’s talking about womanizers and a–holes? The conversations is about harassers, assaulters an rapists. Stop conflating them.

Peter Jackson says the Weinstein brothers orchestrated a smear campaign that led  him to blacklist Ashley Judd and Mira Sorvino. Sorvino tweeted: “Just seeing this after I awoke, I burst out crying. There it is, confirmation that Harvey Weinstein derailed my career, something I suspected but was unsure.”

-The NCIS: New Orleans showrunner is still employed by CBS after two HR investigations. Krista Vernoff, the executive producer and showrunner of Grey’s Anatomy, just went on the record about his terrible treatment of her and other women on the set of Charmed.

-Expect The Last Jedi to soar to $200M this weekend. On Friday alone, it’s tipped to earn anywhere from $95-$100M.

-I recently heard that Drake went to a Toronto restaurant and ate in the back room by himself (flanked by security guards) and it made me sad. Much like this photo does.

-But this photo from The Post premiere is wonderful.

-I love that at the welcome party for new Vanity Fair editor Radhika Jones, Anna Wintour gifted everyone with pairs of fox tights.

-PBS is doing a new mini-series based on Little Women and I really need that in my life right now.

Sarah Paulson talked about her unexpected friendship with Rihanna and it was lovely.
