-Friends mania continues. Courteney Cox and Ed Sheeran recreated Ross and Monica’s iconic dance routine on her Instagram, but they didn’t quite stick the landing.

-Meanwhile, the Friends creators say they didn’t intend to have an all-white cast. Ok, but how about the reunion? They could bring back the guy who played Mr. Heckles but they couldn’t bring back Gabrielle Union, Aisha Tyler or Phil Lewis?

-Oof. Ellie Kemper was reportedly once the “queen” at an event hosted by the KKK. No word from her camp yet, but it blew up twitter today so I assume as statement is coming.

Brad Pitt won joint custody of his kids and everyone seems kind of surprised by it (which is probs a bad sign). Angelina Jolie‘s team is appealing the decision.

-In this week’s episode of KUWTK, Kim Kardashian revealed that she had covid last fall. Buzzfeed dove into the timeline and worked out that it came soon after her infamous private island birthday bash.

-According to Heather Morris, Naya Rivera was the only “honest” one about Lea Michele‘s behavior on the Glee set. “It’s like, we absolutely could have stepped up and gone to the Fox execs and said how we felt about the situation and nobody really did. So now we are living in a culture where it’s acceptable to go do things like that, whereas I think many people were very scared.”

-I liked this profile on Emma Stone, who talks about Cruella, long cigarette holders, and her own origin story: “All I wanted to do was play the daughter on a sitcom!”

Rosario Dawson tweeted after the court dismissed the anti-trans case against her: “That these false claims came from someone we’ve known as chosen family for decades and who we were trying so hard to help out, as we have many times in the past, was very heartbreaking. Nevertheless, we have great empathy for him and have only ever wished him well.”

-I still can’t believe this is Kelly Osbourne.

Kelly Clarkson is set to take over Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime slot.

Alan Dershowitz is suing Netflix over being depicted in the Jeffrey Epstein series.

-The CW’s Powerpuff Girls pilot is being retooled for being “a little too campy” and “not feeling as rooted in reality as it might have.” I wonder if this decision was made after the script leaked on Twitter, which lead to lots of mocking.
