-Saturday Night Live’s season premiere will air on Oct 3 and feature Chris Rock and Megan Thee Stallion.

Sohla El-Waylly, who recently left Bon Appetit’s Test Kitchen, has now joined the Babish YouTube series.

-Riverdales’ KJ Apa and Camila Mendes seem to think that gargling with mouthwash before filming kissing scenes will protect them from covid. And…they may be right?

-Meanwhile, this Vulture article on the ambiguous covid rules on productions and the lack of industry consensus is terrifying. I’m also incredibly curious about what show the PA who said this worked on: “On my Netflix job, the lead actor got sick. Four people — two from the crew and two cast members — died from covid.”

-Netflix has launched a new production hub in Vancouver, where a lot of shows have resumed filming.

-CW stars Asha Bromfield, Candice Patton, Nafessa Williams and Vanessa Morgan joined Teen Vogue for a conversation about diversity in Hollywood.

In any case, I love that Mbatha-Raw is promoting another movie but willing to answer so many questions about that one.

Riz Ahmed plays a drummer who’s losing his hearing in Amazon’s Sound of Metal trailer. This played a TIFF last year to strong reviews.

-In a revealing new interview, Riverdale actress Lili Reinhart opens up about going through heartbreak and depression (“The last couple of months have probably [been] the most emotional few months of my entire life and my therapist [told] me, ‘Your body’s going through withdrawal from love. You’re used to having this exchange of happy chemicals between you and the person that you’re with.’ In moments of my life, I have dropped every ounce of pride that I had just to be like, Love me. Please take the pain away for a day, a second, an hour, just so I can feel that fix again”), and her worries that her book of poetry might be misinterpreted (“I felt the need to write that because I was scared — and I am scared — that people are going to try and create their own idea of what my love life looked or looks like. I’m not saying, My boyfriend fucked another woman. I’m saying, I felt betrayed”). However, she later took to Twitter to clarify that her words are being taken out of context by some and she wasn’t talking about her recent split from costar Cole Sprouse, tweeting “I would never speak so candidly about something as personal as a breakup. That’s incredibly private. I was addressing my depression.”

-Meanwhile, Sprouse posted a photo of her on Instagram with the caption, “Lili and I initially separated in January of this year, deciding to more permanently split in March. What an incredible experience I had, I’ll always feel lucky and cherish that I had the chance to fall in love. I wish her nothing but the utmost love and happiness moving forward. All I’ll say about it, anything else you hear doesn’t matter.”

In a new interview, Jennifer Aniston says she related to the scene in The Morning Show when her character stops herself from having a breakdown  and slaps on a smile. “There have been moments — not to that level of hysteria — but moments of ‘I don’t want to f**king go here,’ ‘I don’t want to walk out onto the carpet,’ ‘I don’t want to be seen,’ ‘I don’t want to be looked at and everyone’s going to be talking about me and judging me’ … that’s real. I just loved being able to walk into it and lean into it and not be ashamed of it, but actually just … it was like … Ooooooooooh.”

Deuxmoi (which is quickly becoming a must-follow on IG for gossip hounds) has noticed that this small IG account that recaps celeb news has some very not-small followers, including Jennifer Aniston, Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Jessica Parker. I’ve only checked out the last 3 posts but 2 of those bash Angelina Jolie.

-Here’s a video of Chris Hemsworth hyping you up. I’m gonna watch this every morning.

Why are y’all so upset that I don’t wanna be in the bed sad? Why y’all upset that I can walk?”

-The Glee cast can’t catch a break. Dianna Agron and Mumford & Sons’ Winston Marshall have reportedly split after three years of marriage.

Brandy is on the cover of People, talking up about her decades-long battle with depression following a car accident that killed a woman, and how her daughter Sy’rai saved her. “I remember lying in bed super depressed. I [told] myself, ‘So, you’re just going to go out like this? That’s wack. You have a daughter. If you can’t do it for yourself, do it for her because this is not the way to leave a mark in her life.'” (Also, if you haven’t listened to her new album yet, you should. It slaps.)

Ashley Benson was spotted with a diamond on her finger, leading to speculation that she’s engaged to G-Eazy. (With the mask, I seriously have no idea how any paparazzi recognized her. Should we just assume that any masked celebs who get papped at random spots set it up?)

Tracee Ellis Ross says she fought to make sure her Black-ish character didn’t always look like a traditional sitcom wife. “What I did speak up about from the beginning was, ‘Why am I carrying laundry?’ ‘Why am I the person in the kitchen cooking right now, when this has nothing to do with the scene?’ Even sometimes when it does have something to do with the scene. I started coining them as ‘lady chores.’ ‘Why am I doing the lady chores? Can’t Anthony [Anderson] do the lady chore?'”

Meet Paul Mescal, The Internet’s New Boyfriend

-Have you started the TV adaptation of Normal People? It’s great — and it’s also the reason everyone on the internet is currently lusting over the lead actor, Paul Mescal. He’s on the new cover of Wonderland.

-I’m half way through the show but the only sour note (so far) is the bizarre choice to use the overplayed “Hide and Seek” song during a pivotal scene. Why!?! But it led me to this great read on how early 2000s teen dramas set the bar for TV soundtracks. (I remember watching the screener for the Gossip Girl pilot and turning to my friend and saying “there’s no way they’ll clear all these songs when it airs.” And then they did!)

-Meanwhile, do you think Noah Centineo is feeling threatened by Paul Mescal’s sudden rise and that’s why is IG captions have gotten even more indecipherable?

John Krasinski enlisted some Oprah, Jon Stewart and Malala Yousafzai when he surprised graduates from the class of 2020 on the latest episode of Some Good News. Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds appeared in other segments.
