-There was a lot of talk last week about how that Amanda Bynes comeback profile glossed over or straight up ignored her worst behaviour, but the new Lindsay Lohan feature in Paper won’t be accused of that. It brings up her past (despite Lohan’s attempts to steer clear of certain topics) and reveals that she’s still a bit of a mess (making the interviewer wait until the 9-hour photo shoot is over and then still not talking to her, responding to questions about that encounter with “Syrian refugees” only through email via her rep, etc).
-Meanwhile, here’s the first trailer for Lindsay Lohan‘s new MTV reality show. I wish her well, but I just can’t.
-As Camping ends with a whimper, Lena Dunham is being pretty blunt about her experience on the HBO show: “I’ve sort of had it with trying to be anyone else’s voice — I tried that and it was complicated and it didn’t necessarily work and it caused a lot of pain, so the only thing I can really do is be my voice.”
–Pete Davidson says he’s been “getting online bullied and in public for 9 months.” Ok.
–Chris Noth is not here for all the rumours about the Sex and the City 3 movie script, particularly the one about Mr Big dying of a heart attack: “There’s no way he was dying. That was all a lie.” He added, “There’s no drama, there’s no movie, there’s nothing going on with it, it’s over, it’s gone.”
–Piers Morgan getting owned by 92-year-old Dick Van Dyke on Twitter is a pretty great way to start the week.
-Lifetime’s You starring Penn Badgley is moving to Netflix for season 2 (Netflix Canada is getting season 1 at some point this month).
-This video of Kelly Clarkson meeting Cher on a red carpet this weekend will make you melt.
-Rumours of a reboot of The Office just got a lot more credible thanks to this photo a cast member tweeted this weekend.
–Hannah Lux Davis talks about directing “thank u, next”: “If you’re Ariana Grande, you can talk to anybody and they will take your call [Laughs]. I think Ariana was just like, ‘yo, what if we got Kris Jenner?’ And she got her!”
-There were rumours that Friends was leaving Netflix in January but it seems like it’s sticking around for a bit longer. It’s going to be a big deal if/when they lose the streaming rights to that show. Netflix doesn’t release ratings but there’s rumours that it is the most watched/rewatched show on the site — by A LOT.
-I didn’t even watch all of Daredevil but this interview with a writer on what it was like when they found out Netflix cancelled them is a real bummer.
-This is a great column on the work still needed to be done in this #MeToo era.
-The British Independant Film Awards took place this weekend, and everyone looked (mostly) lovely.
-This oral history of Working Girl in honour of its 30th anniversary is juicy fun. Melanie Griffith talks about trying to seduce Alec Baldwin, and the cast reflects on Kevin Spacey‘s creepy character.
-Here comes the Jameela Jamil backlash, right on schedule.
–Anna Paquin plays a superstar publicist in the Flack trailer.
