Bridgerton Is Coming Back

-Netflix is officially returning to Bridgerton, which has been renewed for a second season. Producers confirmed it’s following the books, which means next season is all going to hang on the casting of Kate (book 2 — and the series’ — best character). Simon is barely in this book, but I have to imagine they’ll beef up his scenes to keep Regé-Jean Page around. And godspeed if they try to adapt the unintentionally hilarious scene in which Kate gets stung by a bee in the chest and her love interest tries to suck the stinger out…

-The Bachelor’s Clare Crawley and Dale Moss’ split has turned messy. There’s been sighting for months of him with other women, and now she’s speaking out about learning of their broken engagement the same time as the rest of the world: “The truth is I am crushed.”

-Six months after filing for divorce, Christina Ricci has filed for a restraining order against her ex-husband James Heerdegen, alleging “severe physical and emotional abuse”, and saying “many of these acts of abuse” took place in front of their son.

George Clooney and Michelle Pfeiffer reunited in the latest Actors on Actors video and it was wildly charming. They first met when he was dating her sister! He told a story about being drunk on the set of One Fine Day after a wild night. “I got to the set, and we walked to the trailer and I sat down and you looked at me. You go, ‘What?’ And I was like, ‘I didn’t know we were going to work today.’ And you go, ‘You’re still drunk.’ ”

-Meanwhile, Pfeiffer is making the jump to TV, playing Betty Ford alongside Viola Davis in a Showtime series called The First Lady.

-Maybe Jojo Siwa just likes this song? It is a banger, after all.

Megan Thee Stallion is setting the record straight after a false report claimed the charges were dropped against rapper Tory Lanez.

-Oof. What a terrible magazine cover for poor Sarah Paulson.

Katy Perry’s performance on the inauguration special got me right in the heart guts. So did Demi Lovato’s and the Broadway sing along(I’m not sure if it was officially a sing along but it was in my house!)

Chrissy Teigen is the only celebrity the official presidential Twitter account follows — because she asked for it.

Seth Rogen didn’t come to play when it came to Ted Cruz.

Josh Hartnett is the latest celeb to reveal that he secretly welcomed a new kid last year during covid.

Daisy Ridley On Being Labeled ‘Aggressive’ and ‘Intimidating’

daisy ridley tatler

Daisy Ridley covers the new issue of Tatler and opens up about being called “aggressive” following her Star Wars fame. “I’ve been told that I’m intimidating. That was on [the set of upcoming film] Chaos Walking. I was having my hair done, having my wig put on. I remember thinking, ‘God, should I be smaller? Should I be quieter?’…I’ve been called aggressive, too. My energy is ‘quite aggressive.’ That was during a meeting with a director. I was thinking: ‘But why? Is it because I maintained eye contact? Is it because I’m passionate about what we’re talking about?’ I dunno. You have that horrible sinking feeling of, ‘God, do I not come across the way I think I do?'”

-Sexual assault allegations against designer Alexander Wang have been flooding TikTok, Instagram, and Twitter this week.

-I feel like Hilaria Baldwin thought she was doing this NYT interview for damage control, but the writer didn’t get the message. My fave paragraph: “‘One of the most important places to start is this idea of boundaries,’ said Ms. Baldwin, who invites social media followers into her home life with Mr. Baldwin and their five fair-haired young children by routinely sharing images like her underwear-clad workout routines, innumerable pregnancy selfies and the sponsored diaper-ad videos of her infant son.” I also loved the source who insisted on anonymity because she feared Alec Baldwinwould punch her.”

-Also, people are really angry (as they should be) that New York Magazine is mostly crediting Tracie Egan Morrissey for breaking the story. It definitely blew up when Morrisey posted about Baldwin on Instagram, but most of the legwork was already done by this @lenibriscoe thread on Twitter.

-The week between xmas and new year’s is always packed with celeb split announcements in an attempt to slide under the radar, but this week is slower than most. All we’ve gotten so far is Lindsey Vonn and P.K. Subban announcing the end of their engagement, and Tyrese Gibson splitting from his wife.

-Another day, another round of pap shots of Shia LaBeouf and Margaret Qualley jogging. Interesting, seeing how his attorney told Variety last week: “Shia needs help and he knows that. We are actively seeking the kind of meaningful, intensive, long-term inpatient treatment that he desperately needs.”

Billie Eilish says that she didn’t intentionally get a mullet; her hair “fell out in chunks” after having it coloured.

-In a video posted on Twitter, Anthony Hopkins celebrates 45 years of sobriety and reveals that he drastically changed his life after realizing he was “headed for disaster.”

Chrissy Teigen revealed on Instagram that she’s 4 weeks sober.

-Also, Chrissy created a surprise math competition for John Legend’s birthday. This sounds like my own personal hell, but he looked into it.

Selena Gomez called out Facebook for spreading misinformation about vaccines and covid.

-I’m loving that our Bridgerton thirst is being quenched with interviews with the hunky stars.  Regé-Jean Page (who plays Simon) talks about warning his loved ones about the nudity (“I’ve been sending out warning texts to my family, like the family WhatsApp group is full of exclamation points in the middle of flashing red light emojis just kind of going, ‘I know everyone’s kind of excited for this, but just so you know what you’re getting into, there is some de-robed Regé going on this Christmas.'”) Meanwhile, Jonathan Bailey (who plays Anthony) talks about the impressive sideburns he sports in the show (“They are real, baby. I fertilize them every day like a bonsai tree.”).

-I like this interview with 48 showrunners revealing the series that got them through 2020. It feels like The Queen’s Gambit, Normal People and HBO’s How To With John Wilson got the most shoutouts, but Dan Levy picked Sex Education, Greg Berlanti chose The Crown, and Lena Waithe opted for I May Destroy You.

-Gilligan’s Island star Dawn Wells, who played Mary Ann, has died of COVID-19 complications.

Robin Wright retreats to the harsh wilderness of the Rockies after a family tragedy in the Land trailer.

 

Chrissy Teigen Talks Healing

-After tweeting about her “grief depression hole” earlier this week, Chrissy Teigen reflected on the “brutal, exhausting, sad, physically challenging, mentally painful bitches of a couple months” since the loss of her baby in a new Instagram post, saying she’s starting to feel better: “I already see the leaves as orange instead of grey, realized the sky is indeed blue and not black and horn honks on my forced morning walks only bring me to my knees half the time.”

-Sweet jebus, did Eric Clapton and Van Morrison really team up on an anti-COVID lockdown song? Irresponsible and awful.

-I keep forgetting that Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus have a kid together.

-There’s rumours that David Lynch is set to write and direct a new Netflix project. It will undoubtedly be strange and confusing and critics will love it and I won’t get it.

Johnny Depp might have been dropped by the Fantastic Beasts franchise, but he’ll still be the face of Dior.

-Look how big Jennifer Aniston’s puppy has gotten!

-The trailer for Mariah Carey‘s xmas special on Apple+ features loads of familiar faces, including Ariana Grande, Tiffany Haddish, Billy Eichner, Jennifer Hudson and Snoop Dogg.
