Elisabeth Hasselbeck Once Stormed Off View Set After Being Reprimanded by Barbara Walters

-New audio from The View reveals that Elisabeth Hasselbeck once threatened to quit the show during a commercial break after a fight with Barbara Walters over the morning after pill. “What the f**k! I don’t even swear. She has me swearing. This woman is driving me nuts. I’m not going back. I can’t do the show like this. She just reprimanded me, and she knew exactly what she was doing. Goodbye! I’m off. Write about that in the New York F**KING Post!”

-The Handmaid’s Tale star Elisabeth Moss tells Marie Claire that’s she’s dating someone, but won’t say who. “I learned you just don’t talk about it. Who really gives a s**t whether or not I’m dating anyone? I hate to put that importance on it. I cringe a little.”

Nina Dobrev crushes Zac Efron at the gym in his new YouTube video. (Why does he work out in Cons?!)

-I love that Reese Witherspoon badly photoshopped Zoe Kravitz into her pic from the Big Little Liars set.

-This thread on how only male reviewers seem to think that Captain Marvel has no character arc is so, so good.

-Fleabag’s current season will be its last. With the end of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and You’re The Worst this week, Broad City last week, and Jane the Virgin this summer, we’re seriously losing a lot of amazing, female-driven shows with messy protagonists.

-Does anyone else think the rumours about Fergie and Prince Andrew getting back together could just be a distraction from the juicier royal rumours circulating this week?

Judi Dench getting caught in a lie about never going to nightclubs is delightful.

-Are Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson‘s camps trying to prep us for imminent engagement news?

Charlize Theron isn’t just single, she’s “shockingly available.” (Her words.)

Samantha Bee slammed anti-vaxxers — and used a Riverdale spoof to do it.

Beyonce just signed a deal with Adias after reportedly walking out of meeting with Reebok due to a lack of diversity on their team.

Holland Taylor is playing Stormy in the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel and this is straight out of my fantasy casting.

-Speaking of fantasy casting, Kumail Nanjiani is in talks to join Angelina Jolie in The Eternals. Get that Marvel money, Kumail!

-Every time Mindy Kaling and BJ Novak hang out in public I get so hopeful!

-The reviews for Fosse/Verdon are very mixed. I’m still going to check it out.

Laura Dern seeks justice for a stranger in the Trial by Fire trailer.

Cranberries’ Dolores O’Riordan Dead at 46

-Well, this is terrible: Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan has died at 46. As of now, her death is being treated as ‘unexplained.’

-This weekend, Buffy’s Elisha Dushku wrote a Facebook post alleging that the head stuntman on True Lies molested her when she was just 12. Her mother and on-set legal guardian corroborated her claims (which he denies). Jamie Lee Curtis, who played her mother in the film, says the actress told her about it “a few years ago.

-The story about Aziz Anzari’s bad date caused some major debate this weekend. I’m not really sure where it fits into the #TimesUp movement, but whether you think it was assault or not, one thing has been made very clear: we need to teach boys what consent looks like. I feel like ever since the Cat Person story went viral a few weeks ago, consent has been a big topic in every discussion I have with female friends and most women I know seems to have a story about following “the path of least resistance” to get out of this kind of situation. For eloquent threads on this topic, see here, here, here and here. When it comes to Aziz, the thing that rankles most for me is that he MADE A CAREER out of dating advice. He wrote a book about it and sold out Madison Square Gardens on his speaking tour. The other concern I have is that in conversations about who’s next, his name has come up a lot in recent weeks. If something more substantial breaks, I worry that there’s now going to be an immediate reaction of “oh, women are just out to get him/piling on now.”

Aziz has issued a statement, saying after the incident “I took her words to heart.”

Liam Neeson called the Hollywood sexual harassment movement “a bit of a witch hunt.” Byeeeeee!

Leah Remini is pointing to Scientology as a potential instigator for the Paul Haggis allegations.

-It turns out that public shaming still works. Mark Wahlberg finally announced that he’s donating his $1.5 million to Time’s Up; WME is donating an additional $500K.  Michelle Williams released a perfect statement that kept the spotlight off her and on the cause.

Katy Perry overcame her hatred of Medieval Times this weekend. (Who hates Medieval Times? It’s literally one of my favourite places on earth. I’m always having to piggyback on my friends with kids’ outings, cause apparently going by yourself as an adult is “creepy.” Pfffftttt.)

-The hottest comic con photo opp pose to do with stars is currently the distracted boyfriend meme, and I couldn’t be happier. Here’s the casts of Arrow and Avengers taking a crack at it. (Also, did you know that people ship Bucky and Steve? And their ship name is Stucky? I just learned this and it makes me irrationally happy.)

Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin: still a thing. I can’t imagine a more boring couple. Can their ship name just be Beige?

-Hulu is now streaming ER (which weirdly has never been on a streaming site before). Now if someone could add Felicity and Sports Night, I’d be in heaven.

-Seriously guys, the Proud Mary rollout is insane. There is some conspiracy-level stuff going on.

-I don’t need another CW superhero show in my life, but I guess I’m getting one because the reviews for Black Lighting are great.

-Supergirl’s Melissa Benoist addressed the Andrew Kreisberg firing at the TCA, calling his alleged misconduct “a major disappointment.”

-Groupon getting Tiffany Haddish to be in their Super Bowl commercial makes so much sense. She’s basically been giving them free advertising on her talk show circuit.

-Didn’t we already know that Dakota Johnson and are dating?

-A funny thing is happening to Today now that Matt Lauer is gone: Its ratings are going up.

-An actress has added to the accusations against Mario Batali. He was also repeatedly mentioned in the NYT’s report of sexual misconduct allegations at The Spotted Pig, including a tidbit about someone having to intervene because they saw on the security camera that Batali was kissing an unconscious woman. “We called him the Red Menace,” said a former server. “He tried to touch my breasts and told me that they were beautiful. He wanted to wrestle. As I was serving drinks to his table, he told me I should sit on his friend’s face.”

Larry King is “flatly and unequivocally” denying a groping allegation.

-Even though it doesn’t drop until Dec. 29, Black Mirror is landing on a lot of critics’ Best of 2017 lists (’cause they’ve already seen it).

George Clooney told Jimmy Kimmel he’d take on a moose as a pet because “it’s a mobile coat rack”.

-I love that the girl who plays Felicity on Arrow tried to keep her job at a dog grooming place for the entire first season of the show.  Dogs *are* very cute.

-The Punisher has been renewed for season 2 on Netflix. I really liked what I saw, but it also feels like the finale really wrapped up his emotional journey. (Of course, you could say the same thing about Jessica Jones and I can’t wait for that one’s return…)

-I love that Netflix had to go on the defensive over their big brother fan-shaming tweet about The Christmas Prince.

-I’m a big fan of Gina Rodriguez — and I’m an even bigger fan of this dress.

Will Smith falls into a war over a wand in Netflix’s Bright trailer. Man, this this looks like a mess.
