Real Estate Porn: Kendall Jenner Edition

Kendall Jenner house

Kendall Jenner offers a look inside her Los Angeles home in the September issue of Architectural Digest. I’m surprised by how much I like this.

Meghan Markle has agreed to pay more than £67,000 in legal costs after losing the first round of her legal battle against the Mail.

Armie Hammer is tweeting again. Not surprisingly, it’s not going well.

-Man, I’m really digging Seth Rogen these days. His new movie that’s dropping on HBO Max/Crave next week looks great, he’s repeated slammed people who comment AllLivesMatter on his posts, and in Marc Maron‘s podcast, he said when he was younger he wasn’t told Palestinians lived on land that became Israel. “I also think that as a Jewish person, like I was fed a huge amount of lies about Israel my entire life. You know, they never tell you, that oh by the way, there were people there. They make it seem like it was– just sitting there. Oh the fucking door’s open! … Literally they forget to include the fact to every young Jewish person: Basically, oh by the way, there were people living there.”

Megan Thee Stallion showed off the flowers she got from Beyonce and Rihanna following her shooting.

-Meanwhile, Vulture’s piece on the reaction to what happened to her is well worth your time. “Try to recall another time when a rapper went into surgery for multiple gunshot wounds and it became instant gag fodder.”

Taylor Swift stans continue to go after the Pitchfork reviewer. This is insane. Not that ANY review would justify this kind of reaction, but she liked the album! She gave it 8/10!

-Speaking of disturbing fan behaviour, Kate Beckinsale used IG stories to document getting an “unsettling” gift — someone anonymously dropped off a rabbit in a cage along with a basket of rose petals on her front door.

Post Malone appeared on Joe Rogan’s show (ugh) and talked about masks. The singer, whose lifestyle brand donated 40,000 N95 masks to frontline medical workers, doesn’t think masks should be mandatory. “It’s like me in school having to tuck in my shirt or else you get detention. It’s weird to be forced to wear something … At the end of the day, it all comes down to respect for other people. It’s not a government thing. You shouldn’t be forced to wear a mask — but you should. And that’s because I respect you as a follow human.”

Marti Noxon and Kater Gordon, who previously called out Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner for harassment, wrote a column about how the industry can better protect staff from toxic showrunners in light of the news that Weiner has a new development deal with FX.

Cameron Diaz chatted with Seth Meyers about quarantining with her husband, Benji Madden, and their 7-month-old daughter, Raddix. She was doing promo for her new wine line — which might have gone better had she not poured herself a glass over ice.

-The Emmy Awards have confirmed the ceremony will be completely virtual in a message to nominees, in which they note: “If you want to be in formal wear, we’d love that, but equally if you’re in the UK and it’s 3am, perhaps you want to be in designer pajamas and record from your bed!” Aw man, this is going to be so weird.

Yahya Abdul-Mateen II‘s reaction to getting an Emmy nomination for his role in Watchmen is so pure.

-But no one — I mean no one — does an Emmy reaction better than Glow’s Betty Gilpin. This year’s statement might be her best yet: “To the Television Academy — how dare you. I really can’t stress enough how much of a threat this nomination is to my current quarantine brand of pasta and sad. In the Time Before, being born with a healthy protective emotional wall missing meant I got to channel that into pretend time in exchange for health insurance and claps. Until today, apparently here in the apocalypse, these skills were about as meaningful as a worm’s hymn in a canyon. I’d like to thank the cast and crew, and the Academy, and seasonal depression, and honestly Nathan Lane, and before this nomination phoenixes me out of mediocrity and I explode into ribbons just real quick the cops who killed Breonna Taylor still have not been arrested.”

Kieran Culkin saying he’ll punch Succession costar Nicholas Braunin the balls‘ if he beats him is also a pretty great reaction.

-Meanwhile, Nicholas Braun released a pandemic track called ‘Antibodies’ to encourage people to donate to Partners in Health and The COPE Program, two organizations working to help those most vulnerable and affected by coronavirus. The song is both hilarious and incredibly catchy. Go, Cousin Greg!!

Tracy Morgan and his wife, Megan Wollover, are splitting after five years of marriage.

Annie Lennox called out Madonna for posting some BS covid conspiracy theories on her Instagram.

-The first photos from Netflix’s Ratched, Ryan Murphy‘s prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest starring Sarah Paulson, looks predictably kooky. Is that Sharon Stone with a … monkey?

-Rapper Malik B, a founding member of The Roots, has died at 47.

-Netflix announced it will be adding seven classic Black sitcoms to its library in an initiative lead by @StrongBlackLead. The shows are: Moesha, The Game, Sister Sister, Girlfriends, The Parkers, Half & Half, and One on One. I’m definitely due for a Girlfriends binge, but so far this looks like it’s US-only.

Dua Lipa confirmed that a side b of Future Nostalgia is coming.

Ashley Judd won her appeal, allowing her to go forward with her sexual harassment claim against Harvey Weinstein.

Lili Reinhart tries to recover from an accident in the Chemical Hearts trailer, which will debut on Amazon Prime.

Kanye West Calls Slavery a “Choice”

-Ok, if whatever Kanye West is doing is just performance art and not actually him losing his mind, he needs to stop. This isn’t amusing anymore. He just crashed TMZ Live and said “When you hear about slavery for 400 years, for 400 years? That sounds like a choice. Like, you where there for 400 years and there’s all of y’all? It’s like we’re mentally imprisoned.” When Harvey Levin is looking at you like you crossed a line, that ain’t good.  (Also, bless TMZ’s Van Lathan for standing up to him like that.)

-A French tourist was sitting alone in a New York City restaurant and ordered a cosmo because it’s Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw’s favorite drink. When the bartender told Sarah Jessica Parker, she paid his tab and ordered a cosmo for herself too. Man, sometimes I still really love her.

Blake Shelton is trying to pretend his “karma” tweet wasn’t about Miranda Lambert. Sure, Jan.

Ashley Judd is suing Harvey Weinstein for due to damage done to her career as a result of his alleged sexual harassment. According to the lawsuit, she felt something “unseen” had been holding her career back and didn’t realize until December that it was Weinstein. She says any financial recuperation will go to Time’s Up.

Ava DuVernay, Viola Davis, Shonda Rhimes and more are adding their voices to the #MuteRKelly campaign.

Tiffany Haddish and Charlamagne sounded off about him a year ago.

Gwyneth Paltrow told the Today Show that her kids are “excited” about her engagement. Wait, so she DIDN’T get married a couple of weeks ago in Mexico? I’m so confused.

-I saw Zachary Levi speak at a fan convention last year and I remember thinking, “man, he’s got some bad takes.” So this tweet doesn’t surprise me.

-The cast of Avengers: Infinity War read mean tweets about themselves on Kimmel. Tom Holland‘s was my fave.

-This is a nice surprise: The Crown star Claire Foy will receive $275,000 in back pay.

Busy Philipps is going to host a late night show? Here for it!

-The new Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer introduces Goliath to the MCU.

Jennifer Hudson Strikes a Pose for Cosmo

jennifer-hudson-cosmo

-What’s happening with Jennifer Hudson’s Cosmo cover? Is she dancing? Is she fighting? Also, I haven’t read Cosmo in decades but all of those headlines are hilariously bad.

-The Queen won’t let Kate Middleton wear nail polish? Man, I can’t wait until Megan Markle shakes this up.

-This interview with Melissa Leo is bananas. She talks about how difficult women directors are, says the reason she hasn’t been harassed by directors is because she’s “a small-breasted, red-headed woman with little eyes” and gets defensive over simple questions. The reporter calls it “the strangest and most uncomfortable interview I have ever done.”

-Here’s Jeff Goldblum coming up with hilarious, creative compliments for the Thor cast. I love that he uses exclamations like “super-duper” and “by gum!”

-HBO is dropping its project with news analyst Mark Halperin amid sexual-harassment allegations.

-Mandy Moore says she met her husband on Instagram, so keep on double tapping all the latte art photos that cute guy you don’t actually know posts.

Ashley Judd, who was one of the first women to go on the record and kick this whole Weinstein story off, spoke with Sawyer about her experiences on Good Morning America.

-Meanwhile, Selma Blair and Rachel McAdams came forward to share their encounters with James Toback, and it sounds horrific. McAdams said when she told her agent what happened, she wasn’t surprised. “That is when I got mad, because I felt like I was kind of thrown into the lion’s den and given no warning that he was a predator.”

-In EW’s new cover story, insiders get really candid about why this moment in Hollywood is very different.

-This Sarah Polley profile is all kinds of wonderful.

-Here’s the trailer for the David S. Pumpkins animated special.

-The cast of Ryan Murphy‘s latest TV project is insane. Pose will star Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek and Tatiana Maslany, as well as the largest number of transgender actors in television history to have series regular roles.

-Was the set of Practical Magic cursed?

-Here’s the first trailer for Marvel’s Runaways, which critics are loving. I’m definitely here for anything that puts Buffy’s Spike back on my TV.
