-In a new magazine interview, Kaley Cuoco readily admits that she’s had her nose and breasts done and it’s … weirdly refreshing? That’s where I am with celebrities at this point: pleasantly surprised when they’re not lying their faces off. Sigh.
-Surprise! Nick Cannon confirmed he’s expecting a baby with his ex-girlfriend Brittany Bell.
–Drake‘s crush on sports reporter Doris Burke might be my new favourite thing. “Dinner at my house anytime. As long as she comes alone.”

-Yay! Another new Childish Gambino song has dropped. It’s Prince-y.
-I really liked this conversation between Sarah Jessica Parker, Julianna Margulies and Chelsea Handler about girl breakups. I’m not sure I agree with Margulies that women are more emotional than men.

-Good dress on Nicole Kidman here.
-Oh yeah, The Affair returns this weekend. I really liked last season — and then promptly forgot all about it.
–Jessica Chastain hides people from Nazis in her giant zoo in the new trailer for The Zookeeper’s Wife.
