Rihanna’s Sneaky Sephora Set Up

-In a new ad for Fenty Skin, Rihanna sneaks into a Sephora to set up the display herself. God, I already know I’m gonna buy so much of this stuff…

Ali Larter has responded to former costar Leonard Roberts‘ essay about her poor treatment of him on the Heroes set with a half-ass apology: “I am heartbroken reading his perception of our relationship, which absolutely doesn’t match my memory nor experience on the show…I am truly sorry for any role I may have played in his painful experience during that time and I wish him and his family the very best.” So basically, she doesn’t remember it but oopsie if she offended.

-I’m surprised big names keep signing on to Facebook Watch shows, which have negative zero buzz. Cardi B is going to star in a new series called Cardi Tries ____, in which she becomes a ballet dancer, stunt driver, and firefighter.

-Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner is sick of anti-maskers: “If I can wear a mask while I give birth, you can wear a mask at Walmart.”

Leah Remini has no time for people who are praising Tom Cruise’s on-set rant, reminding everyone that his ties to Scientology disqualify him from preaching safety. “Tom does not care about the families of his crew; this is all for publicity. Tom does not believe in family values. I mean, how anyone is falling for this is just mind-blowing.”

-Oof. David E Kelly’s response to criticism on how his new ABC Big Sky erases indigenous women is not great.

-I’m so confused about why Nancy Meyers‘ daughter got offended by the retrospective Vulture has been running on her mother’s movies this week. I’m equally confused by all the famous women who seem to agree with her. It’s not sexiest to praise the specificity of her mom’s work. I liked this take: “Costume design is an art and Nancy’s masterful use of clothing should be celebrated, not ignored.”

-The trailer for Walker, starring Jared Padalecki, actually looks ok?

Tina Fey says she thought she heard a man calling for help in the Hudson River, so she called the police. It turned out it was a guy who flipped a kayak in the Hudson and was floating north with no oar.

Frances McDormand starring in a Sarah Polley-directed film sounds like a dream.

-I very much agree with Lin-Manuel Miranda’s take here: “When theater comes back it’s going to be in conversation with technology in an entirely different way. I don’t think we go back to a world where a show premieres on Broadway, and then no one can see it unless they have $200.”

-My god, one of the Hanson brothers now has seven kids.

-It looks like Adele is recording new music. Huzzah!

Grey’s Anatomy Looks To the Future


-Variety interviewed the women of Grey’s Anatomy about the show’s upcoming 17th season, and they talked about the possibility that this might be its last. Ellen Pompeo has a few more months before she decides whether she wants to continue, and said she knows the show will likely end when she leaves. “I don’t take the decision lightly. We employ a lot of people, and we have a huge platform.”

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez covers the new issue of Vanity Fair, and talks about how she warned Rep. Ted Yoho to watch himself after he called her a “fucking bitch” on the steps of Capitol Hill. She found him the next day and told him, “You do that to me again, I won’t be so nice next time” — and she lived up to that promise when he brought it up on the House floor.

-IMDb has taken down user ratings for David Oyelowo and Angelina Jolie‘s upcoming film Come Away after it became the target of a review bombing campaign, mostly because it’s a prequel to Alice in Wonderland and a bunch of racists got mad that the kid actors they cast aren’t white.

-Us Weekly says Brad Pitt and Nicole Poturalski have been “over for a while now.” But were they every really together?

Sacha Baron Cohen did a Reddit Q&A in character last night and it was as filthy as you’d expect.

-Despite the rumours that she’s dating Skepta, Adele is calling herself a single cat lady.

-There’s been whispers for a while about Diplo, but he’s denying a relationship with a 19-year-old TikTok star after she said she lives with him. He tweeted, “OK so I rent one of my properties to @quenblackwell. And yes I use the studio that is in that building. Her social media is sarcastic and chaotic and I can see you can get a twisted idea but there is nothing but a friendship between us.”

-I couldn’t find a source for all of these Emma Watson/Tom Felton rumours going around, but I’m into it.

-Bless Lizzo for dropping off her ballot while wearing a stars-and-stripes bustier.

Khloé Kardashian contracted the novel coronavirus earlier this year and described her symptoms in a new sneak peek of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

-I always forget that Sarah Jessica Parker has kids because she’s so (admirably) private about it. Her tribute to her son on his 18th birthday was very sweet.

Sam Smith has hair plugs and they don’t care who knows about it.

-Netflix’s holiday rom-com Holidate, which drops on Friday, is actually getting decent reviews? I mean, I was going to watch the crap out of it either way, but that’s nice.

Diane Keaton and Jeremy Irons and star in the Love, Weddings & Other Disasters trailer.

Paul Mescal Remains the Internet’s Boyfriend


-It feels like I watched Normal People 9 million years ago (it was in May) so I should probably be over my Paul Mescal crush, but this new GQ photo spread just pulled me back in. This is some Chris-Evans-in-Knives-Out levels of sweater perfection.

Zac Efron‘s girlfriend Vanessa Valladares threw him a star-studded surprise birthday party this weekend. Wait, is the pandemic over and nobody told me?!

Chris Pratt was trending on Twitter this weekend because most of the Avengers cast is assembling for a Biden fundraiser, and he’s the notable absence.  Who’s still surprised that this guy is most likely a Republican? Did we all forget that Ellen Page called him out for supporting an anti-LGBTQ church?

-It seems like only Canadians appreciated the “BonjourHi” sketch on SNL but Bowen Yang killed it. I also thought this cut sketch about Lovecraft County was also good in that they’re right — that show is impossible to describe.

Adele is hosting SNL next weekend, and I’m already exhausted by the discourse around her weight loss (and the thought that they might do a sketch about it.)

Harry Styles got a haircut and fans are all up in their feelings.

R Kelly‘s lawyers say he was beaten in jail and “no one raised a finger.” Presumably the ones who did the beating did though.

-A judge just ruled that Danny Masterson‘s rape case will go forward in court after the actor’s lawyers tried to get it tossed out.

-Black Panther’s Winston Duke had insomnia and spent the night posting shirtless thirst traps. That’s the kind of middle-of-the-night productivity I appreciate!

Cardi B deleted her Twitter account following her reconciliation with Offset, saying she’s tired of “a bunch of 15-year-olds telling me how to live my life.” She should probably avoid her Insta comments too then.

-Oh god, Kanye West is going to be on Joe Rogan’s podcast next week. I just can’t with either of them.

-Hahahaha – one of the kids from Home Improvement is getting divorced, and copy and pasted his announcement from Armie Hammer. Of all the ones out there to crib, you choose that one?!?

-Speaking of Hammer, his Rebecca costar Lily James is pulling out of interviews after those photos of her and Dominic West surfaced — reportedly because some of the bigger outlets are insisting she address it. I was actually surprised that she was still doing them last week (though not surprised by how awkward she was).

-I really, really liked Olivia Dade‘s new book and this interview on fat representation makes me like it even more.

-I haven’t watched The Trial of the Chicago 7, but there’s a ton of supercuts floating around of dialogue being directly lifted from Aaron Sorkin’s past projects. He remains the master at recycling old bits.

-Sony is denying rumors that originated from a sketchy fan site about Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire joining the cast of Spider-Man 3.

-I really liked this article on Bryan Fuller, shipping and fandom’s purity culture.

-CBS All Access just dropped a new trailer for The Stand. I couldn’t imagine another mini-series I’d want to watch less in the middle of a pandemic.
