Succession Is Coming Back This Fall

-It’s Logan v. Kendall in the new Succession season 3 teaser. I cannot wait!

-I’m underwhelmed by Gwen Stefani’s Vera Want dress. Her original pink dress was just too high a bar to clear. At least she went non-traditional for the reception. The wedding ceremony was officiated by Carson Daly.

Harry Styles and Olivia Wilde are PDAing their way through Italy. Good for them.

-Every E. Alex Jung is a must-read. But this one on Jennifer Coolridge? Its a must-read-right-now. It’s filled with tidbits like this: “I always said I was Muffin Hemingway [at the clubs] if I couldn’t get in. One time I got thrown out of a club because I was behaving badly, and they said, ‘Don’t ever come back here, Muffin!'”

-Congrats to Being Human and Hawaii 5-0 star Meghan Rath, who just revealed her pregnancy.

-The first day of Cannes gave us Jodie Foster speaking French, Pedro Almodovar as a surprise guest, jury president Spike Lee in a hot pink suitMarion Cotillard in bike shorts, Adam Driver getting Oscar buzz, and Helen Mirren dancing on the red carpet.

Elizabeth Hurley’s son Damian says he’s “Grateful for my beautiful family, today and every day” — despite being cut of out his late father’s $330m will.

-I just finished Cruel Summer a few days ago, which was a fun, twisty little show. The second season will move ahead without creator Bert V. Royal. According to the Hollywood Reporter, he quit his Freeform series after clashing with an exec last summer just after the pilot finished shooting.

-This is a very well-written review of the Gossip Girl reboot, which says the show wants to start a revolution but has no idea how. I also like this one, which reminds us it’s harder than it looks to make really good trash.

Seth Rogen wins Twitter this week with this tweet: “Once I was in the spa in a hotel in Vegas getting a massage. When I finished I turned over and to my shock Paul Rudd was massaging me. He saw me go in and convinced the masseuse to let him take over, thinking I’d notice immediately. I didn’t, and Paul did the entire rest of it.”

-This seems to be implying that Jennifer Lawrence is pregnant? I kind of thought she already was, but that was me mixing her up with her BFF Emma Stone.

Larry Rudolph has stepped down as the Britney Spears‘ manager after 25 years. “It has been over 2 1/2 years since Britney and I last communicated, at which time she informed me she wanted to take an indefinite work hiatus. Earlier today, I became aware that Britney had been voicing her intention to officially retire.”

-Her long-time attorney (who was chosen for her), Sam Ingham, is also stepping down.

-I don’t watch Top Chef but by most accounts this season was one of its best, so it sucks that the winner is now surrounding by controversy.

Reese Witherspoon Talks Movies and Money

-This is a very non-Reese Witherspoon cover for Interview. She talked to Tracee Ellis Ross for Interview about being a woman in Hollywood (“I had a studio head say to me, “Reese, we already have a movie with a woman this year. We can’t make another one'”) and having conversations about money (“The [thing] that really drives me nuts is that women aren’t encouraged to have conversations about financial literacy. And when things drive me crazy long enough, I feel like I’ve got to go do something about it, and it takes me a while to figure out what to do, but I’ll bring it up to literally everybody who crosses my path. You know me as the ‘How will this make money?’ and ‘Where is the revenue stream?’ girl”).

Ariana Grande joined James Corden to celebrate the end of lockdowns in New York and California by singing a new version of Hairspray.

Harry Styles is really pushing into acting, huh? There’s also talk that he’s in the Eternals movie (which may be how Selma Hayek knows him).

-I’m loving this new Vincent song with Tegan & Sara.

-Oh god. Dwayne Johnson is totally going to run for president, isn’t he? “I’m not a politician nor did I ever have political passions, and quite frankly I’m not sure I even have the patience or resignation to deal with the B.S. that comes with politics and politicians, but when 46% of Americans say they’re in favour of me becoming president, that forces me to humbly and respectfully stand up, listen and learn.

-Not surprisingly, new mom Meghan Markle will not be flying to London with Prince Harry for the unveiling of the new Princess Diana statue next month.

-I really liked this conversation between Bowen Yang and Jean Smart for Variety. She told him: “I would like to thank you personally for speaking out against the violence against Asian peoples that has been going on. My daughter is from China. We adopted her when she was 10 months old, and I do worry lately.”

Paris Jackson says the paparazzi has left her with PTSD: “I experience auditory hallucinations sometimes with camera clicks and severe paranoia and have been going to therapy for a lot of things but that included. I’ll hear a trash bag rustling and flinch in panic. I think it’s standard PTSD.”

-Here’s the trailer for Joshua Jackson’s new Showtime drama, Dr. Death.

-You know there’s too much TV out there when a new trailer drops for season two of Apple TV+’s Truth Be Told, starring Kate Hudson and Octavia Spencer, and it’s the first I’ve heard of this show.

Salma Hayek’s Owl Puked on Harry Styles

Salma Hayek says her pet owl once vomited a ‘ball of rat hair’ on Harry Styles. He was “super cool” about it.

-An American Gigolo reboot series has been ordered by Showtime starring Jon Bernthal. Oh, yes please!

Zoë Kravitz will direct and Channing Tatum will star in a new thriller called Pussy Island. In the interview about the movie, their exchange about Crocs is hilarious: “When someone can just come out and tell me I should not be wearing Crocs, and is so adamant about it, she completely convinced me and I never wear Crocs anymore,” Tatum said. “I was just trying to be a good friend, Chan,” she said. “I get it, but I totally loved Crocs for a hot second, and in one hang she was like, you can’t ever do that again. And I said, ‘OK, fine.’

Harvey Weinstein will be extradited to Los Angeles to stand trial for sex crime charges.

-So Kevin Hart is blaming “cancel culture” for making him feel censored. “You’re thinking that things you say will come back and bite you on the ass. I can’t be the comic today that I was when I got into this.” I guess that’s one way to make headlines when you have a new project coming out this week…

-Just after Chrissy Teigen dipped her toe back into the public arena following her bullying controversy, Project Runway contestant Michael Costello claimed she DM’d him messages like “racist people like you deserve to suffer and die.”

-There’s rumours that Brad Pitt is dating Lykke Li. I’m into it.

-On the first Late Show back with a full audience, Jon Stewart went ALL IN on the conspiracy theory that covid was leaked by a Wuhan lab (even when Colbert seemed to be trying to reign him in). Which may very well turn out to be true, but whew, this came off a bit anti-science.

-Cruel Summer (which I really liked) has been renewed for a second season. I had no idea that it’s produced by Jessica Biel.

Lin-Manuel Miranda directs and Andrew Garfield stars in the Netflix film adaptation of the late Jonathan Larson‘s autobiographical musical Tick Tick Boom. It’s about the making of Rent so I’m allllll in.
