–Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid confirmed that they’ve welcomed their first child, a baby girl. She could already be a hand model.
-Meanwhile, it looks like This Is Us fans won’t have to wait until November to watch Season 5, as previously announced. The show’s premiere date has been pushed forward two weeks to Oct 27, as production resumed this week. Check out other fall tv premiere dates here.
-Saturday Night Live’s season premiere will air on Oct 3 and feature Chris Rock and Megan Thee Stallion.
–Demi Lovato has called off her engagement with soap star Max Ehrich after just two months. (There’s no official confirmation, but that People quote sure sounds like a PR soundbite from her camp.) Meanwhile her fans were convinced that her fiancé is obsessed with Selena Gomez.
-I’m always surprised by the celebrity homes that I really like in Architectural Digest videos. Hilary Duff’s home is lovely!
–Elle Fanning covers Vanity Fair and talks about transitioning to adult roles—and bonding with sister Dakota—while quarantining in her childhood bedroom.
–Meghan Markle recorded a special message for America’s Got Talent fan favourite Archie.
–Tyra Banks admits “we messed up” when it came to America’s Next Top Model’s mission to be inclusive.
-I never actually watched The Knick but this is kind of amazing: Steven Soderbergh is reviving the series, which ran from 2104-2016, with Andre Holland and Barry Jenkins.
–Sohla El-Waylly, who recently left Bon Appetit’s Test Kitchen, has now joined the Babish YouTube series.
-Riverdales’ KJ Apa and Camila Mendes seem to think that gargling with mouthwash before filming kissing scenes will protect them from covid. And…they may be right?
-Meanwhile, this Vulture article on the ambiguous covid rules on productions and the lack of industry consensus is terrifying. I’m also incredibly curious about what show the PA who said this worked on: “On my Netflix job, the lead actor got sick. Four people — two from the crew and two cast members — died from covid.”
-Netflix has launched a new production hub in Vancouver, where a lot of shows have resumed filming.
-CW stars Asha Bromfield, Candice Patton, Nafessa Williams and Vanessa Morgan joined Teen Vogue for a conversation about diversity in Hollywood. Speaking of a CW sisterhood, I’m so curious about what happened with Shethority, which was started by a bunch of CW actresses. Patton was very involved in the beginning but seems to have pulled back.
-The Father of the Bride cast is reuniting for a new charity event.
-Bummer: Sofia Coppola‘s new film with Bill Murray and Rashida Jones is not getting good reviews.
-Have you seen Beyond the Lights? Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays a Beyonce wannbe and Minnie Driver plays her stage mom and it’s so, so good that I have no idea how come it isn’t more well known. In any case, I love that Mbatha-Raw is promoting another movie but willing to answer so many questions about that one.
–Riz Ahmed plays a drummer who’s losing his hearing in Amazon’s Sound of Metal trailer. This played a TIFF last year to strong reviews.
