–Anderson Cooper revealed on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert that he is co-parenting with ex Benjamin Maisani, despite them splitting up back in 2018. “He’s my family, and I want him to be Wyatt’s family as well.”
-Also, Andy Cohen says Cooper has employed his nanny.
-Quarantine shows are the new black. Justin Bieber has one, and now Selena Gomez has a cooking show.
-I haven’t watched Chris Hemsworth in Extraction but apparently it did well enough on Netflix to warrant an immediate sequel order.
-The MET gala didn’t happen as scheduled this week, but stars are still showing off what they would have worn. Julia Robertsteetered in a gown over a full bathtub, while Katy Perry showed off her belly-bump baring outfit.
-Oof, this Esquire profile on Chris Evans is really hard to read, mostly because it’s so clear that there’s no love lost between the interviewer and the subject.
–Lady Gaga was on Fallon last nighttalking about raising money and during the show she called up Apple CEO Tim Cook to confirm on the spot that he will indeed commit to a donation of $10 million. I also love how she very clearly recognizes her privilege. “I know the difference between the fight that I’m in and the fight that other people are in and we’re here to be of service and here to help.” If you didn’t like her before, the way she’s rallied donations during all this ($35 million and counting!) is sure to change your mind.
–Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford hosted an IG Live chat, and it was kind of great.
-Stop hugging fans, Matt Damon! (I mean, it’s very sweet but I’m worried about you.)
-Schitt’s Creek is coming to an end tonight. This is a great interview with Dan Levy on the show’s evolution.
-TV shows are starting to get creative while production has shut down. CBS’ All Rise is planning a coronavirus-themed episode that will be remotely filmed using Zoom, Facetime, and WebX.
-Meanwhile, with TV production not set to resume anytime soon, the network TV pipeline is drying up and we’re looking at the possibility of no new scripted TV for the rest of the year. At the very least, the traditional Fall TV season isn’t going to happen since most pilots haven’t even been shot yet.
-If you have Amazon Prime, Vulture did a good list of the 100 best movies they have available to stream. I’m going to catch up on all the indie movies I’ve missed recently, like The Farewell, Fast Color, Honey Boy, Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father, Meek’s Cutoff and Paterson. I’m also going to watch A Simple Favor for the fifth time because it makes me happy.
