–Meghan Markle‘s father says he thinks his daughter looks terrified in her new family, saying he can tell by her smile. My god, how is he still allowed to talk about her?
-The is weird: Hulu just stealth-dropped the entire new season of UnREAL. It may still air on Lifetime, but not until next year, if at all. They’re playing it like it’s a Beyonce-style surprise release, but it feels a lot more like a summer burn-off.
–Johnny Depp has settled his legal feud with his former managers.
–Demi Moore and Cybill Shepherd got in on the Bruce Willis-roasting action for Comedy Central.
–Chris Pine uses a flip phone and drives a Jeep Wagoner. And yet, I still think he’s the best Chris. He’s so great, he’s able to overcome all this hipster nonsense.

-I love that Christine Baranski had no idea what Big Dick Energy was, but as soon as she was told she had it she was like “oh, I get it now.”
