Schitt’s Creek Checks Out

Schitts Creek finale

-I’m not ready for Schitt’s Creek to be over (like, literally — I still have half a season to catch up on), but EW’s cover story with Dan Levy and Noah Reid is beautiful.

Rihanna and Drake were interacting in the comments of DJ Spades’ Instagram Live and when he got too complimentary of her, she wrote “Give Drake some water.” Absolute perfection.

Ariana Grande and her new bf are sheltering-in-place together.  TMZ calls him “a high end real estate agent who handles multi-million dollar listings for L.A.’s A-list buyers” so hopefully he’s found them a good place to hunker down.

-Outlander star Sam Heughan is getting dragged for posting photos from his Hawaii vacation in the middle of a pandemic. Seriously celebrities, just put down your phones. You’re all sucking at this.

Prince Charles has tested positive for covid-19 but is only displaying mild symptoms.

Ryan Reynolds is donating 30% of his Aviation gin profits to out of work bartenders.

-I love that Jennifer Garner keeps shouting out Victor Garber. Spy daddy!

Chrissy Tiegan needed lettuce so she met up with some strangers in a church parking lot and traded cake, wine and banana bread for three heads of romaine. It was incredibly cute.

-The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln serenaded Danai Gurira to celebrate her last episode.

-While talking to Variety, novelist and showrunner Michael Chabon went off on a tangent about what he originally wanted Picard to be like, and as someone who has given up on that show, oh how I wish he’d have stuck with it: “I always said if we could have just done a whole show about Picard and the dog on the vineyard in France, with no starships, no phasers, the only Romulans would be those two Romulans who work for him on the vineyard, and no politics — just, like, there’s a funfair down in the village and they all go, and maybe Picard solves a very low stakes mystery in the village, like, someone has stolen the antique bell out of the bell tower, or something like that?”

Justin Beiber‘s tour ticket sales have been so sluggish, he’s had to downsize a number of venues.

Prince Harry and Megan Markle finished their week of royal duties at a Commonwealth Day service, and Prince William and Kate appeared to keep their distance. In particular, this video seems to show a snub.

-I liked Harry and Megan‘s coordinated green outfits, (though I do agree that the fit of her dress could be better). I prefered the red dress she wore this weekend.

-Asked about Prince Andrew‘s initial offer of cooperation in the Jeffrey Epstein case, U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman says the royal has “completely shut the door on any voluntary cooperation” and his office is “considering our options.”

Elizabeth Warren and Kate McKinnon did the best “drop the flip switch” challenge yet.

DaBaby apologized on Instagram after hitting a woman in the crowd of an afterparty.

-Lost’s Evangeline Lilly opened up about a”rough” time last year in an Instagram post: “I didn’t want to share all of it with you because i didn’t want to be a dark cloud in your world…I struggle deeply with feeling that all I ever am is what I feel everyone else wants and needs me to be. I often feel alone and unseen.”

-The full Allure cover story on the Dixie Chicks is now available online, and in it the writer says “I am meeting the Dixie Chicks to not discuss their new album, Gaslighter. It is their first in 14 years, but due to ongoing legal disputes, we cannot talk about it.” The legal dispute likely refers to what’s going on between Natalie Maines and Heroes star Adrian Pasdar, whose divorced was finalized in Dec but are still fighting about the confidentiality clause in the the prenuptial agreement.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union continue to be wonderful parents.

-Modern Family’s Ed O’Neill was on Ellen, where he told a funny story about always embarrassing his teen daughters by introducing them to celebrities he’s never met, so his daughter refused to meet Leonardo DiCaprio — who he actually knows.

Ellen Pompeo and T.R. Knight reunited the day after Alex shocker on Grey’s. I bet they had some catching up to do.

-I can’t believe I watched the entire season of The Outsiders and had no clue that last night’s finale (which wasn’t very good) would include an important post-credits scene. HBO has got to stop doing that.

-Between Stephen King lamenting Hachette’s choice to “muzzle” Woody Allen, and Bill Maher defending Chris Matthews, it’s probably a good time to remind everyone that rich white dudes aren’t automatically entitled to lucrative publishing and TV contracts.

-These PS I Still Love You bloopers are very cute.

Lil Yachty dressed up like Oprah to interview Drake in their new music video.

-The new trailer for Black Widow (which is still slated to come out May 1…for now) looks great and makes me even angrier about Natasha’s fate in Endgame.

 

Timothy Hutton Accused of Rape

-Late this afternoon, Buzzfeed published an interview with Sera Johnston, a Canadian ex-model who claims actor Timothy Hutton and his friend raped her in 1983 when she was 14 and they were in their 20s. Buzzfeed spoke with a friend she told only a few days after the night in question, Johnston’s mother, and three more friends. They all, separately, confirmed that she told them the actor had raped her in his hotel room. Before he died, her ex-stepfather also told an investigator that Johnston had told him it was “flat out rape.” Hutton “completely and unequivocally denies” Johnston’s allegations. After being informed that BuzzFeed News was going to publish the story, the actor spoke with the FBI — according to his spokesperson, to report Johnston for attempted extortion.

Haenel, who recently revealed was abused while working as a child actress in the country’s film industry, could be heard exclaiming “Bravo, pedophilia!”

-In a sit-down event with Oprah this weekend, Jennifer Lopez talked about her Oscar snub. “I was sad. I was a little sad because there was a lot of buildup to it…And I’m reading all the articles, and I’m like, ‘Oh, my God. Could this happen?’ And then it didn’t, and I was like, ‘Ouch.’ It was a little bit of a letdown…Most of my team has been with me for years — 20, 25 years — and I think they had a lot of hopes on that. They wanted it, too. I felt like I let everybody down a little bit.”

Megan Thee Stallion claims her label has been messing with the release of her new music since she tried to renegotiate her contract (which she signed back when she was 20) in the midst of her newfound success.

Howard Stern got Harry Styles to break his silence on getting robbed at knifepoint last month. He said a group of guys with their hoods up approached him and demanded cash, and then told him to unlock his phone and give it to them. “I thought about throwing it in the pond to just be like, ‘Neither of us have it.’ Then I thought, ‘I don’t want to piss them off’. There were, like, two cars coming, and I just felt an opportunity and I just sprinted and ran. I ran into the road and I tried to stop a car…[Then I] turned and ran toward the village where I live…I guess because they had some cash and stuff they ended up just turning around.”

Adam Levine is apologizing after having a rough Maroon 5 concert in Chile. He blamed technical issues: “There were some things holding me back sonically last night, and I let them get to me, and it impacted how I was behaving on stage, which was unprofessional, and I apologize for that.” At one point, he reportedly got angry that the audience was singing along to “She Will Be Loved” and told the crowd, “Well, if you want to do my job, go ahead.” But, you know, technical issues.

John Mulaney‘s SNL episode was the show’s best in a while. The sketch of the night was the eight minute-long Broadway-style musical about a man who bought sushi at LaGuardia Airport.

Jessica Biel was spotted out shopping this weekend — sans wedding ring.

-Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard says he’s been freaked out by adult fans. “When I was 13, some adults followed me back to my condo when I was shooting It. I was by myself. As I walked faster, they walked faster, and I was getting a bit antsy by the time I got to the door. Suddenly, they were like, ‘Hey, dude, can we get a selfie?’ And I was like, ‘No you can’t have a selfie! How about don’t follow children?'”

-Here’s a roundup of all the cringey things Pete Davidson had to say about Ariana Grande in his new Netflix special.

This thread from a Disney animator in which he credits his coworkers for individual shots in Frozen 2 is wonderful.

-Inside the Actor’s Studio host James Lipton passed away early this morning at his home in Manhattan from bladder cancer. He was 93.

-The novelization of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker confirms the kiss between Rey and Ben Solo wasn’t meant to be romantic. If you have to retroactively explain your movie this much, maybe you didn’t hit it out of the park? This is my absolute fave tweet about it.

John Boyega complaining while working out with his trainer is oh so relatable. “I could have been an architect, Tim! I’d be fat, have man tits, big little nipples, and a lovely wife who loves me for who I am. That’s what I should have done. This is what ambition gets you.”

-The first few month of this year have been a shitshow, but things are looking up: Meghan Markle is planning on attending the Met Gala in May.
