Inside Kim Kardashian’s Weirdly Stark House

Kim Kardashian West is the latest celebrity to get Vogue’s 73 Questions treatment — and it’s the most extensive glimpse we’ve gotten of their weird, blank canvas-y house. How do they actually live there? There’s no furniture!

-After weeks of speculation, Wendy Williams filed for divorce from her husband of 20 years amid rumours he had a baby with his mistress.

-This is a big deal. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking from tradition and avoiding the dog and pony show outside the hospital after welcoming their kid. Instead the palace says they have “taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private” and that “look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”

Lori Loughlin is reportedly coming to terms with how much trouble she’s in. A source tells E!, “Lori is finally realizing just how serious this is. She is seeing the light that she will do jail time and is freaking out.”

-I wrote a Game of Thrones refresher before this weekend’s premiere and when doing some season 7 rewatching, I realized I had forgotten A LOT.

-Meanwhile, James Corden made one of his writers binge GoT in one, 67-hour sitting.

Brie Larson teaching Oprah about the French tuck is adorable. (Also adorable, Gayle saving Oprah from admitting she doesn’t know Tan from Queer Eye.)

Donald Glover and Rihanna‘s Guava Island, a music-driven, hour-long film shot largely in secret in Havana, is dropping this weekend. It’s a tropical thriller written by Glover’s brother and costaring Letitia Wright featuring Glover playing local musician character is determined to throw a festival for his island community. It’ll premiere on Coachella’s YouTube channel this weekend ahead of Glover’s headlining set, and stream for free on Amazon.

Drake‘s Euphoria starring Zendaya just got a premiere date and trailer.

-I guess people still aren’t over Theranos? Kate McKinnon will play Elizabeth Holmes in a new Hulu miniseries.

-Disney’s upcoming streaming service keeps adding new shows. The latest is a Love, Simon spinoff.

-Reading this interview with Bret Easton Ellis and seeing how Isaac Chotiner destroys him really made my day.

Jeffrey Tambor, who was caught up in MeToo, will be killed off of Transparent in its final season

-Netflix released the trailer for Tales of the City, starring Laura Linney and Ellen Page. Oh, I am very in on this!

-Speaking of Netflix originals I’m in on, here’s the first trailer for Wine Country, starring Amy Poehler, Maya Rudolph, Rachel Dratch, Ana Gasteyer, Paula Pell, Emily Spivey, and Tina Fey.

Leighton Meester Talks Learning How to Surf

-I’m really not down with the styling of her Shape feature, but at this point I’m just grateful that Leighton Meester is landing magazine covers again.

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez got engaged this weekend and her ring is reportedly worth $1.4M.

-1D drama: Louis Tomlinson says he stopped being friends with Zayn Malik after Malik didn’t show up when his mom died.

-Wait, Ariana Grande used to date Alicia Florrick‘s son?? And she might be dating him again?

-Congrats to Glee’s Lea Michele, who got married on Saturday.

-I love this story about a reporter asking a publicist if he could interview Ben Mendelsohn (despite him not being on the Captain Marvel press tour), and then having Mendelsohn call him to chat 10 minutes later.

-Meanwhile, Captain Marvel did even better than expected, raking in $455M US globally, including $153M in North America. Also, Brie Larson popped into a few theatres this weekend to surprise fans.

-I never thought we’d have a beef between Drake and Paul Anka, but here we are.

-In an IG post this weekend, Justin Bieber asked fans to pray for him as he revealed his recent struggles with depression.

-This entire interview with Regina King is worth a read (Support the Girls is a movie I missed last year but really want to see because I’ve only heard raves), but this bit about whether or not her pal Tiffany Haddish was telling the truth about her other pal Sanaa Lathan biting Beyonce is gold: “Let me tell you something: I could tap your leg with my foot and Tiffany would retell it as me kicking you. She’s a comedian. She can make a story, know what I mean?”

-Speaking of interviews worth your time, speaking to Vulture John Mulaney revealed he fired Louis C.K.’s former manager Dave Becky, who represents a lot of comedians, a soon as the CK article came out in the NYT, but didn’t make a statement about it. “I didn’t feel I had anything that noble to add, and issuing a simple statement of one sentence that I fired Dave seemed evasive and honestly an unhelpful use of everyone’s time and taking up oxygen.” Also, when asked about making the comedy industry safer for women, he had the perfect answer: “I have a lot of thoughts and opinions on many things. I don’t think my thoughts and opinions matter in any way compared to the women who have been directly affected by these actions. I say this not at all to be evasive, but just to not talk anymore as a male in comedy who has not had to experience this. Other people should. Women’s opinions matter, and mine does not.”

Taika Waititi is adapting Terry Gilliam’s Time Bandits for TV and I like all of those things!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle learned how to make maple taffy on snow during a visit to Canada House in London today.

-The fact that Aidy Bryant‘s new Hulu show Shrill is being compared to Better Things can only be a good thing.

-Last night, the Olivia Wilde-directed teen comedy Booksmart premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and people LOVED it. The reviews are glowing and the trailer looks great.

Cardi B Covers Harper’s Bazaar

Cardi B Offset Harpers Bazaar

Cardi B is coming in hot with her Harper’s Bazaar photo spread, which is by far the best editorial of the year so far. (I love that she got in a fight with Nicki Minaj at Harper’s Fashion Week party, and not only did she still land their cover, the photos actually reference it.) In the interview, she talks about working on her marriage to Offset (“Nobody makes my decisions about my life but me. I didn’t want to go to marriage counseling. He suggested it, but it’s like, ‘I don’t want to go.’ There’s no counselor or nothing that could make me change my mind”), postpartum depression (“When I gave birth, the doctor told me about postpartum, and I was like, ‘Well, I’m doing good right now, I don’t think that’s going to happen.’ But out of nowhere, the world was heavy on my shoulders”), and re-prioritizing (“Now I don’t feel like I have the time to please people. I don’t care about anything anymore—just my career and my kid. Well, I care about my career because of my money”).

Ellen Page going after Chris Pratt is a mood! (At what point can we just drop Pratt from all those “who’s the best Chris” discussions? Messina is ready to swap in!)

-Congrats to Vampire Diaries star Paul Wesley, who got married.

-Man, EW’s romcom issue is just the gift that keeps on giving. Today they posted a piece with Katherine Heigl, James Marsden, Malin Akerman, and Ed Burns reminiscing about 27 Dresses (a film that holds up surprisingly well).

Ariana Grande had a busy day! She just dropped a new (possibly queerbaiting?) music video, and a new album that’s getting rave reviews.

-The Grammys are gonna be a mess. Not only is Ariana bailing, Drake, Childish Gambino and Kendrick Lamar all declined invitations to perform too.

Danai Gurira is leaving The Walking Dead. She’s the only good thing the show still has going for it and if AMC didn’t feel the need to throw bags of money her way to make her stay, it’s their loss.

-Meanwhile, Norman Reedus may not be working with Andrew Lincoln any more, but he hasn’t stopped pranking him.

-There’s a new Soderbergh movie on Netflix today starring André Holland and Zazie Beetz called High Flying Bird, and critics really dig it.

-Leaving Neverland, that Michael Jackson documentary that had Sundance buzzing, is coming to HBO in March.

-In other HBO news, Barry and Veep will premiere in March, while Big Little Lies’ second season is landing in June.

Miley Cyrus is now officially going by Miley Hemsworth.

Juliett Binoche‘s comments on Harvey Weinstein are super disappointing. Goddammit, I just sat through Let The Sunshine In for her!

-Ugh, Casey Affleck exhausts me.

-Former CW lead Chad Michael Murray playing a supporting character on Riverdale really is karma at work.

-Good on Jeff Bezos (words I never thought I’d say) for exposing the National Enquirer’s attempts to blackmail him using nude photos, but female celebrities did it first.

Samuel L. Jackson and Jessie Usher make a badass father and son pair in the Shaft reboot.
