-In other baby news, Mandy Moore is pregnant. The This Is Us actress announced on social media that she and husband Taylor Goldsmith are expecting their first child – a baby boy.

-Meanwhile, it looks like This Is Us fans won’t have to wait until November to watch Season 5, as previously announced. The show’s premiere date has been pushed forward two weeks to Oct 27, as production resumed this week. Check out other fall tv premiere dates here.

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

Demi Lovato has called off her engagement with soap star Max Ehrich after just two months. (There’s no official confirmation, but that People quote sure sounds like a PR soundbite from her camp.) Meanwhile her fans were convinced that her fiancĂ© is obsessed with Selena Gomez.

-I’m always surprised by the celebrity homes that I really like in Architectural Digest videos. Hilary Duff’s home is lovely!

Tyra Banks admits “we messed up” when it came to America’s Next Top Model’s mission to be inclusive.

-I never actually watched The Knick but this is kind of amazing: Steven Soderbergh is reviving the series, which ran from 2104-2016, with Andre Holland and Barry Jenkins.

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. Speaking of a CW sisterhood, I’m so curious about what happened with Shethority, which was started by a bunch of CW actresses. Patton was very involved in the beginning but seems to have pulled back.

-Have you seen Beyond the Lights? Gugu Mbatha-Raw plays a Beyonce wannbe and Minnie Driver plays her stage mom and it’s so, so good that I have no idea how come it isn’t more well known. 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.

Gigi Hadid’s Questionable Taste

Gigi Hadid‘s interior design choices are shockingly, shockingly bad. I can’t get over the basket of billiard balls in the kitchen.

The Emmy nominations came out today and HBO’s Watchmen dominated, which I’m pretty happy about. Overall, this is one of the best nomination years in a while. I’m thrilled to see Zendaya, Paul Mescal, Issa Rae and What We Do In Shadows get some unexpected Emmy love, but bummed about Pamela Aldon, Desus & Mero, Unbelievable’s Kaitlyn Dever and Merritt Wever, and El Camino’s Aaron Paul and Jesse Plemons being snubbed.

-In other Emmy news, a record number of Black actors scored nods.

-Also, the way Leslie Jones announced the nominees is the way I want everything to be announced from now on. (“Dead to Me…I love that show, THE GOOD PLACE AAHHHH!!! INSECURAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!”)

-I love that this quickie interview with Paul Mescal was supposed to be about his Emmy nod, and the interviewer still managed to slip in a question about whether or not he’s dating Phoebe Bridgers. (I also love that he wouldn’t talk about it.)

-Just days after announcing her pregnancy, Riverdale star Vanessa Morgan‘s husband, White Sox pitcher Michael Kopech, has filed for divorce.

-Speaking of splits, Meek Mill revealed that he and girlfriend have called it quits, days after Kanye West accused Kim Kardashian of cheating with the rapper.

Johnny Depp handed out bandannas with notes to supporters outside the courthouse.

-Now that the trial has ended and the verdict is imminent, this is a good piece on who ended up looking like a winner (spoiler alert: nobody), and illustrates the difference between UK and US libel laws — because whatever happened during marriage, this case probably wouldn’t have gone to trial in U.S. where Depp would need to prove falsehood and actual malice.

-In what could be huge news, AMC and Universal have agreed to shorten the window between theatrical premieres and VOD from 70-90 days to just 17 days. This is how many have been predicting the pandemic is going to change the movie industry. There will always be theatrical releases (at least for blockbusters) but the ability to watch new releases from the comfort of your own home is going to come much sooner, especially for smaller films or movies that don’t perform well on opening weekend.

-There are rumours going around that Draya Michele lost her collaboration with Savage X Fenty after making a dumb comment about Megan Thee Stallion‘s shooting.

-Meanwhile, Rihanna is hosting a virtual Fenty Skin launch party tomorrow.

Cameron Crowe, Kate Hudson, Billy Crudup and Patrick Fugit had a Zoom chat to talk about Almost Famous’ 20th anniversary.

Leah Remini and Tony Ortega posted details from a chapter she had written about Tom Cruise for her book, but decided to cut because the publisher worried it would be the only thing the media would focus on. Among the allegations, Remini says Cruise used to get fellow Scientologists to give his girlfriends sex advice and break up with them for him, sent employees he didn’t like for “interrogations” that they had to pay for themselves, fired his longtime publicist Pat Kingsley and secured her cooperation with a “dirt file” the church kept on her, and silenced those around him with draconian NDAs.

-Mad Men’s John Slattery stars in Fox’s new sci-fi drama neXt.

Drake may be stuck inside his home in Toronto, but he’s still getting stuff done. He dropped a surprise 14-track mixtape and announced his next studio album will be released this summer.

-The Parks and Rec reunion was everything I hoped it’d be and more. It was the perfect example of why fan service can sometimes be exactly what you need. And I’m going to have “Bye Bye Lil’ Sebastian” stuck in my head for days.

-There was a Fresh Prince cast reunion and Will Smith got a little teary watching clips of Uncle Phil.

Anderson Cooper shared photos of his new son on Instagram.

-It was a sweet gesture but if I were about to do a job interview over Zoom and Meghan Markle popped in to wish me good luck, I would get so flustered that I’d totally bomb that interview.

-Meanwhile, Meghan Markle lost her first legal battle in ongoing lawsuit against the Mail on Sunday.

Eva Mendes defended Ryan Gosling’s parent skills in her Instagram comments.

-I’m intrigued by Amazon’s new show Upload, which dropped today. And only 70% because it stars Robbie Amell.

-I watched Michaela Coel‘s Chewing Gum, which was both hilarious and confusing. Her new HBO show I May Destroy You looks intense.
