Alicia Silverstone Brings Back Cher Horowitz

Alicia Silverstone resurrected her Clueless character  for Lip Sync Battle at it was epic! She looks exactly the same.

-20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion died on Monday following a shooting in South Florida outside a motorcycle dealership.

-In the fallout from Chloe Dykstra‘s essay which accused an ex of emotional and sexual abuse and seemed to imply she was referring to Chris Hardwick, the Nerdist founder has pulled out of Comic Con (where he was supposed to moderate the Doctor Who panel, among other things) and AMC has put his talk show on hold (the second season was supposed to debut on Sunday night with Donald Glover as his guest). Meanwhile, over the weekend Hardwick released a statement — and it’s pretty shitty, with tinges of Gamergate and gaslighting. When he said “As a husband, a son, and future father, I do not condone any kind of mistreatment of women,” I thought, ‘oh wow, his wife is expecting?’ Turns out, NOPE! He just meant that at some point in time he may be responsible for making a girl, which means he couldn’t possibly hurt one now…or something? His repeated mentions of how Chloe cheated on him is also cringe-y. On the (very slight) plus side, his crappy statement has people talking about toxic nerd culture.

-In a new interview, Sandra Bullock says she never worked with Harvey Weinstein, but she’d certainly heard of him. “I only heard what Harvey wanted people to hear, and that made me so f**king angry…People would say, ‘Well, you know how she got that role? She f**ked Harvey.’ I would say, ‘Shut the f**k up. You don’t know that.’ Then, later, to find out that woman was brutally attacked… They didn’t sleep with Harvey. Harvey wanted you to think that.”

-The Ocean’s 8 cast was on the Graham Norton show and it was priceless, from Rihanna telling Helena Bonham Carter why she’s never been invited to the MET gala (“that’s because you wear dresses like that”), to her getting called out for stealing wine glasses from bars.

-Incredibles 2 did incredibly well at the box office this weekend, earning $180 million and breaking the record for best animated debut.

-Actress Amandla Stenberg came out as gay in a new interview for Wonderland.

-Everyone’s still buzzing about the surprise album Beyonce and Jay Z dropped this weekend. I really liked this take about how they are disrupting the very institutions that have proclaimed throughout history that people who look like them don’t belong. (I still can’t believe they shut down the Louvre to shoot a video back in May and she still kept that sh*t locked so tight there were no leaks.)

Idris Elba just dropped a teaser for the new Luther episodes. Gimmie!!

-There’s still lots of questions about what exactly Apple’s streaming TV platform is going to look like, but they continue to keep throwing money at it. They just landed Oprah!

Jon Bernthal, who starred as Shane in The Walking Dead’s first two seasons, is going to appear in an episode of the show’s next season.

-The Darlene-focused Roseanne spinoff is inching closer to reality. THR reports that Roseanne Barr has waived rights to creator fees and backend profits if the spinoff goes ahead, which means the negotiation is now over what, if any, one-time payment she should receive as “go-away money.”

-Do you think Meghan Markle gets advanced warning every time her dad gives a dumb interview? For her sake, I hope so.

-Maybe I’ve just been tainted by this Sex and The City scene, but I really don’t get why celebrities are suddenly into pear-shaped diamonds.

Ariana Grande has a song on her new album called “Pete” so…yeah.

-The MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet was all over the place, style-wise.

-During their emotional reunion, John Cena vowed to get his vasectomy reversed so he could give Nikki Bella a kid. Look, this may all have been fake drama for wrestling, but I’ve been weirdly invested in these two ever since he kind of got teary about the breakup on the Today Show.

Kristen Bell gets dumped at the alter and ends up taking her honeymoon cruise with her estranged father (played by Kelsey Grammer) in the trailer for Netflix’s Like Father.

Johnny Depp Looks Unwell In Fan Photos

Johnny Depp‘s fans (wait, he still has those?) are concerned for his health after a series of photos of him surfaced on social media. A source from his camp says there’s “no reason to be concerned.”

Nick Jonas is dating Quantico’s Priyanka Chopra? That’s…unexpected.

Pete Davidson *just* started dating Ariana Grande and already he got two tattoos dedicated to her: the Dangerous Woman bunny ears, and her initials. Yeah, this’ll turn out swell.

Woody Allen says he should be the #MeToo “poster boy”. “I’ve worked with hundreds of actresses and not a single one…have ever ever suggested any kind of impropriety at all.”  I couldn’t possibly nope this harder.

Janet Jackson  called police on Saturday to check on the welfare of her 17-month-old-old son, Eissa, who was with the singer’s estranged husband, Wissam Al Mana. According to Janet’s brother Randy, the child’s nanny was “terrified by [Al Mana’s] behavior and locked herself in a bathroom, so she could contact Janet.”

Sara Gilbert talked about Rosanne’s cancellation on The Talk. “I am sad for the people who lost their jobs in the process. However, I do stand behind the decision that ABC made.”

-Joshua Jackson has a new girlfriend and it’s not me. I wonder if my boss will let me take a personal day to process this news?

-Paramount has dropped that Heathers reboot from its schedule. Although it’s being shopped around, a show about violence at a high school is probably never going to see the light of day.

-Orange Is the New Black’s Laura Prepon married Ben Foster this weekend.

Tom Cruise shared an insane video detailing an air jump stunt from the new Mission Impossible. He became the first actor to complete a Halo jump.

-This interview with Lee Pace in which he talks about coming out is worth your time.

-My Twitter feed went crazy this weekend after photos surfaced that apparently show Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson together. In other news, I need to follow different people.

-I kind of love that the Big Little Liars cast got together to go bowling and watch Shailene Woodley‘s new film. I wonder if Nicole Kidman has ever bowled before, or if Meryl Streep had to show her how?

-One of my goals this summer is to finish the last season of HBO’s Insecure because I think that show is a goddamn delight and I want to watch it all, but life got in the way. The teaser for season 3 is only re-confirming that for me.

John Mayer talked to Andy Cohen about his dating woes and came to the slow realization that all of Cohen’s famous friends probably have Mayer blacklisted because of his history with women: “You know Jennifer Lawrence and she just doesn’t wanna have anything to do with me.”

-Once again, the THR supporting acting class photo is fascinating. There’s lots of worthy inclusions (The Good Place’s D’arcy Carden, The Handmaid’s Tale’s Yvonne Strahovski, Better Things’ Celia Imrie, Barry’s Anthony Carrigan, Insecure’s Yvonne Orji, Atlanta’s Lakeith Stanfield, The Americans’ Holly Taylor, This Is Us’ Susan Kelechi Watson), but a couple of them are total huhs?

-When you invite Gwen Stefani to your wedding and the DJ starts playing “Hollaback Girl,” you damn well expect her to dance.

-I love this article about all of the Met Gala gowns in Ocean’s 8.

-Speaking of fashion and pop culture, I also love this piece on how Carrie Bradshaw’s tutu and clingy top ensemble perfectly encapsulated the central conflict of Sex and the City: Can you be both fairy princess heroine AND a modern sexpot?

January Jones might have just pulled into the lead for the worst outfit of 2018.

-Ok, so this makes me think that Renee actually was a spy on The Americans.

-This isn’t good: Solo had a massive second weekend drop despite no real competition. Also, Star Wars in general is developing a China problem. It will have trouble getting to $20M, and even bombs like Ghost in the Shell and Passengers did better there.

Chris Hemsworth is already hyping the next Infinity War movie and I just can’t.  This is why I’m looking forward to Ant Man 2, with its nice, self-contained story and Paul Rudd‘s ageless mug.

-I tend to shy away from horror, but the Suspiria trailer (from the Call My By Your Name director and starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton) is pretty damn great.

-It would have been the best trailer of the day (week? month?) if the Widows trailer didn’t drop an hour after it. From 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and Gone Girl’s Gillian Flynn, it tells the story of four women who must settle a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. Check out this cast: Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Liam Neeson, Colin Farrell, Brian Tyree Henry, Daniel Kaluuya, Carrie Coon, Jon Bernthal and more. And as if that wasn’t enough to convince me, Viola Davis’ line reading of “They don’t think we have the BALLS to pull this off!” sealed the deal.

Jon Bernthal Is Having Aa Moment

esquire-jon-bernthal

-I’m really having a week with Jon Bernthal. I listened to his Nerdist podcast (which made me swoon), he liked one of my tweets (which made me swoon even more), and now he’s talking about transforming himself into the man he’s always wanted to be in the new issue of Esquire (which basically made me swoon so much I nearly passed out).

Emma Stone and Jennifer Lawrence are interviewed for W, and the video is pretty damn cute. They both found out that they lost pet turtles (“This is criminally undiscussed: turtles run away. Nobody discusses this, you have to keep your eye on your turtle”), and how annoying they are to others (“We just scream at each other. We’re both hoarse after we hang out. Oh my god, I can’t imagine what it must be like for other people. We should never hang out, only with each other.”).

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s GOOP recommends irrigating your rectum and colon with coffee and doctors are all “yeah, don’t do that.

-All of Ed Westick‘s scenes in BBC’s Agatha Christie drama Ordeal By Innocence are going to be completely reshot, with Christian Cooke replacing Westwick following sexual assault allegations. The series was originally due to air over Christmas.

-Uh oh. A civil lawsuit charging Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis with raping a publicist has prompted three additional women to come forward with their own sexual misconduct accusations. It’s worth noting that Haggis filed a lawsuit against one accuser three weeks ago, alleging it was extortion. A lot of people are wondering if this is the vindictive work of Scientology (which he famously took on), but on the flip side, there’s also this Thandie Newton story about how he mishandled her big scene in Crash.

-If you’re avoiding the cold this weekend, critics are loving on the dark British teen drama The End of the F***ing World, which is on Netflix.

Donald Glover revealed that he and his girlfriend have welcomed their second child.

-Speaking of Glover, Atlanta will be back for its second season, a.k.a. Robbin’ Season, on March 1st. The Americans will return March 28.

-FX’s president John Landgraf told the TCA that Pamela Adlon will keep running Better Things, without Louis C.K. “It’s Pamela’s show. These are her stories, this is her life. She’s the creative engine of that show & that won’t change.”

– The final season of New Girl (which will only be 7 episodes) will debut April 10, with the series finale airing May 15. It will kick off with a funeral and a three-year time jump.

Kristen Bell says they were incredibly close to getting a Veronica Mars limited series off the ground but “a couple of business things got in the way.”

-I’ve given up on Riverdale, but I’m totally here for Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka starring as Sabrina in Riverdale’s new spinoff. That is excellent, excellent casting!

-Speaking of shows I gave up on, I couldn’t get through more than a few episodes of The Crown because I found it soooo slow. But then they cast Olivia Colman for the new season. And now comes news that Helena Bonham Carter will play Princess Margaret. Dammit!

Justin Timberlake’s Filthy came out today, and I don’t hate it. I think I kind of like it? Ugh.  He also revealed the track list. Who’s AK? Anna Kendrick? Alicia Keys?

Reese Witherspoon‘s first TV show for Apple will star Octavia Spencer and follows a murder case that’s reopened thanks to renewed interest in the mystery after a podcast about it goes viral. Serial’s Sarah Koenig will be a consultant on the show.

-It’s nuts that ABC had one of the best-reviewed broadcast comedies of the fall, and didn’t even give it a chance to find its audience.

-Speaking of network comedies, The Good Place returned last night and once again set up an entirely new narrative direction. I’m in awe of this show.

-On Wednesday, a day after Logan Paul uploaded his apology to YouTube and Twitter, he gains 80,000 subscribers. He reportedly made nearly $100k that day and gained more subscribers yesterday than the previous 2 days combined. And the disgusting videos from his trip to Japan just keep coming.

Helen Mirren is in a horror movie, for some reason.
