Colton_Haynes_attitude_rehab

-In his cover story with AttitudeColton Haynes says he’s six months sober after battling drug and alcohol addiction. “In 10 years, there were maybe 25 days I didn’t drink,” he said, but admits he hit rock bottom last year following his divorce and the death of his mother. “I locked myself in a hotel room at the Waldorf Astoria in Beverly Hills for seven days and was found in my room with these insane bruises all over my body…I almost ruptured my kidney, ended up in the hospital, ended up in 5150 psyche hold. I was on such a destructive path that I could not function. I lost partial sight in my left eye for a while. I ended up having two seizures. I didn’t know any of this was happening until I was sober enough to remember it.”

Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx dispelled those split rumours by going for a walk in NYC. I have so many questions about their wardrobe. If it’s cold enough for both of them to be wearing toques, then why is she only wearing a thin jean jacket?

-Hmmm, this is interesting. Angelina Jolie may be pivoting away from her recent directing roles…to become a Marvel superhero. Which is not a bad career move (it’s actually pretty badass branding), but it’s a big diversion from where she’s been focused the last few years.

Wendy Williams was spotted out with her husband, even though he reportedly just welcomed a child with his alleged mistress.

Pete Davidson reveals he once offered to pick up the bill for Kanye West’s extravagant dinner – and then immediately regretted it. “Kanye kept ordering the whole entire time. I didn’t know he was coming and I already put my card down because I thought it would be just me and [Kid] Cudi. Then, [Timothee] Chalamet showed up and then Kanye showed up and I was like ‘Oh, f**k’. And then I had to book two more gigs in Ohio.”

-This is lovely: Jason Momoa was honoured by local First Nation residents with a traditional fish feast while filming in B.C.

-People who saw Us are really into Winston Duke’s thighs. I haven’t even seen the film and yet this makes a lot of sense to me.

Ariana Grande has created a stir with a highly restrictive photo agreement for her upcoming Sweetener tour that has news outlets crying foul.

Rashida Jones reflected on #MeToo and Time’s Up during a panel discussion this week: “For these movements, there’s always an inflection point, and so many inflection points that are started by black women are missed. I do believe there is some version of this country and our lives that would be different if people listened to black women.”

Julianna Margulies gave an interview to a French magazine and said that she hasn’t appeared on The Good Fight because they refused to pay her as much as she was getting before.

Issa Rae looks amazing on the cover of Essence.

-The To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel has found its John Ambrose McClaren. Jordan Fisher, who recently played Mark on Fox’s Rent Live, has been cast.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt continually pointing out that his character in 500 Days of Summer was a piece of shit feeds my soul.

-Jane the Virgin returned last night for its final season, and Gina Rodriguez talked about how she nailed that one-take, 7-minute monologue.

-The latest twist in the Jussie Smollett saga: Records show police paid for hotel rooms for the brothers.

-Glee alums Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., Becca Tobin, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Heather Morris faced off in a reunion rap battle on Wednesday’s episode of Drop the Mic.

-Remember when cord cutting was supposed to save us so much money compared to having cable? With Apple joining Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, YouTube TV, CBS All Access (not to mention the upcoming streamers being launched by Disney, Warner Bros, etc), the streaming bubble is just about ready to burst. The Wall Street Journal nails it: “If you look at the market currently, the average consumer may have room to add a service or two but the ceiling of what a consumer will pay is soon reached.”

-It’s been a few years since I’ve seen The 100, but do they just keep finding new communities every season now? Is it like the YA version of The Walking Dead?

-The series finale of Broad City airs tonight. This final season has been fire.

-Joaquin Phoenix and Rooney Mara get religious in the Mary Magdalene trailer.

Rihanna looks fantastic on the cover of British Vogue.

-Speaking of Vogue, Beyonce is not only covering Anna Wintour‘s last Vogue issue, she’s reportedly assuming complete control.

-While the Guardians of the Galaxy cast is signing open letters in support of James Gunn, their fellow Avengers Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth reportedly unfollowed him.

-I kind of love that this nonsensical Tom Cruise interview answer has gone viral.

-Meanwhile, Mission Impossible: Fallout launched with a series-best opening of $61.5 million.

-On Anna Faris’ latest podcast (which was taped at Comic Con), Arrow star Colton Haynes opened up about losing his mother and going through a divorce around the same time. (It’s weird that outlets are picking up that bit; I listened to that episode and I was way more interested in the part where his costar Stephen Amell admitted for the first time publicly that he was married before, said “I still fucking love my ex [wife]” and talked about how she was the most important thing that happened to him besides his daughter being born. It made me hope his current wife never hears it.)

-Speaking of podcasts, it’s super rich that Marc Maron might join the Joker cast. I was just listening to his episode with Paul Rudd and he kept inferring that Rudd just did Ant Man for the paycheck because superhero movies are dumb.

Robert Pattinson and Suki Waterhouse are dating. Huh.

Billy Talent, City & Colour, Pup and more are pulling together a benefit concert for the Danforth.

-Following an intense social media campaign by Timeless fans (who call themselves Clockblockers), NBC announced they’re wrap up the show with a two-hour movie.

Nikki Bella and John Cena have split up again: “After much time and soul-searching alone and together, we have decided to officially part ways.”

Stephen Colbert called Les Mooves “my guy” but still took him to task in last night’s monologue, while Julie Chen defended her husband on The Talk.

-Meanwhile, Meredith Vieira said “I never personally heard anything, but that means nothing. Somebody can be one way with you and very different with another person.” Which ties in perfectly with this Vox piece.

-Celebs reading mean tweets about themselves is a big thing, but I’d much prefer to watch Christine Baranski reading nice tweets people wrote about her. That last one made me a little teary.

-Literal ball of sunshine Gina Rodriguez is probably engaged.

-Well, this is depressing: An annual report shows no significant improvement in film representation of women, people of color, LBGT characters or characters with disability over the past decade.

-In her Vulture interviewKristen Bell teases The Good Place’s new season, talks about her plan for a Bad Moms sequel, and reveals what it’s like to text with Cher.

Kim Kardashian was told she looked anorexic and took it as a compliment. That’s swell.

-I love that Seth Rogen is becoming the voice of Canadian transit. First he took over for the Vancouver system when they dropped Morgan Freeman following his sexual harassment allegations, and now he’s doing Toronto’s subway announcements. This might make me 0.04% less annoyed when someone’s being scolded for blocking the doors.

Alan Alda revealed he has Parkinson’s disease in an appearance on CBS This Morning Tuesday.

-One of the biggest disappointments of the TV season was Dietland, which started out so strong but got so bad that I just stopped watching a few episodes ago. According to reviews, it didn’t rebound in this week’s finale.

-The new Venom trailer shows off much more of Tom Hardy’s take on the Marvel anti-hero. It still looks bad.

-Vogue shot artsy videos of the stars dancing around an exhibit room during the MET gala. The good ones are RihannaCardi BNicki Minaj, and Katy Perry.  The very best one is Frances McDormand dancing to Basement JaxxShe really did look like she was having the night of her life. 

Katy Perry flew Kim Kardashian’s press on nails to LA for the MET gala. That’s true friendship.

-At last night’s MET Gala, the theme was Catholicism and the outfits were nuts. I adored Lena Waithe in a giant rainbow capeZendaya‘s take on Joan of Arc, and Blake Lively‘s burgundy number. But no one made me happier than Chadwick Boseman with hair sparkles, and  Frances McDormand  in Valentino.

-I’m really bummed that Scarlett Johansson broke the A-lister embargo and wore Marchesa, despite the Weinstein connection. She says their dresses make women feel “confident.”

Jay-Z, Eminem, Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston and more are demanding money from the Weinstein Company.

-Congrats to Jesse Plemons and Kirsten Dunst, who had a baby boy.

-I don’t even watch Lethal Weapon, but what’s going on with that show is crazy. Clayne Crawford has been fired as the lead of the Fox drama as producers are scrambling to recast the role, and renewal is supposed to hinge on who they cast. Multiple actors have already passed, according to THR.

-All of the original Avengers got matching tattoos, except for Mark Ruffalo, who opted out. (But Chris Evans has a plan to get him “blackout drunk.“)

-The R. Kelly house continues to crumble before our eyes. Two new accusers appeared on Megyn Kelly Today to detail sexual the harrasment they faced: “You weren’t free to walk throughout the house…We were required to call him Daddy.”

-This makes my heart sad: Colton Haynes has filed for divorce from Jeff Leatham after just six months of marriage. Rumours started circulating this weekend after he released a new song about a cheater, and a blind item began circulating. Haynes shut down speculation that Leatham cheated on Twitter, but did not deny the split. Poor guy; he just lost his mother, too.

Kristen Stewart is looking at Cate Blanchett exactly how I would.

-Here are all the references in the new Childish Gambino music video you probably missed. (I know I did.)

-I can’t stop watching this video of Mariah Carey putting makeup on a stranger.

-Why the hell did The Hollywood Reporter gives Jeffrey Tambor and his sexual harassment allegations a sympathetic, soft-focus profile?  “I did raise my voice at times, I was moody at times, there were times when I was tactless…But as for the other stuff, absolutely not.”

-Meanwhile, the cast wants extra compensation for Netflix’s recut episodes.

-Cancel Bear (who is usually spot on about these things) posted his TV renewal predictions for networks. On Fox, he thinks Gotham and Brooklyn Nine-Nine are toast, Kevin will no longer be saving the world on ABC but Quantico should get a pass, on NBC all their new comedies and Timeless are likely done, while almost every show on CBS and CW are safe (minus CW’s Life Sentence and Valour, which were both just cut).

Ta-Nehisi Coates on Kanye West is the one thing you need to read this week if you haven’t already.

-There have been some very, very good takes about what went down at FanCon. Today’s Vulture piece, which failed to interview the BGN writers who quit or the vendors affected, is not one of them.

-Ryan Reynolds using Canada to promote Deadpool 2 in Europe is a good time.

Cher is a scene-stealer in the new Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again trailer.
