Tom Holland’s Got Moves

Tom Holland does ballet? What can’t this kid do?

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello stepped out for a very paparazzi-friendly brunch this weekend. Hmmm. (They were also spotted away from the paps enjoying a late-night snuggle, so either they’re legit or they’re very committed to selling it.)

Sarah Jessica Parker says she once reported the inappropriate behavior of a male costar (a “very big movie star”) to her agent. Luckily, her agent didn’t ignore her. “Within hours everything had changed. He said to them, ‘If this continues, I have sent her a ticket, a one-way ticket out of this city and she will not be returning.'”

-This is an interesting look at why stars have no interest in hosting award shows anymore.

-I love that Princess Diana‘s sisters, Lady Sarah McCorquodale and Lady Jane Fellowes, were a big part of Archie’s christening.

-A co-star alleged actor Kip Pardue, who plays one of the dads in Marvel’s Runaways, masturbated without consent in front of her. SAG imposed a $6,000 fine, did not release the information to the industry and gave him the option of reducing the fine by 50% if he takes an online training course.

Wendy Williams returned to her talk show and denied romantic involvement with 27-year-old Marc Tomblin, who she was photographed in June. She also talked about her recent “plant-based lunch” with Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, and Kris Jenner, and apologized for bailing on a dinner with Dr. Oz.

-Radiohead’s Thom Yorke stans Billie Eilish. He’s no fan of Sam Smith or Muse, tho.

Ryan Reynolds is joining Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot in Red Notice, an art heist movie which is moving from Universal to Netflix.  It’ll be Neflix’s most expensive movie to date.

-I really enjoyed the new season of Stranger Things — but I don’t believe for a second that that ending will stick.

-Also, Robin is an great new addition to the show. Ethan Hawke (the actress’ dad) is so proud on Instagram.

-Jaden Smith launched a pop up vegan food truck to serve the homeless.

Terry Crews is campaigning hard to play King Triton in the Little Mermaid live action adaptation, and I don’t hate it.

-A writer revealed that in 2002 she wrote a profile of Jeffrey Epstein for Vanity Fair that included a mother and her two daughters talking about his inappropriate interest in underage girls, but Graydon Carter cut that from the story. This guy had a ton of people in high places protecting him. Now that he’s locked up, everyone’s wondering if there’s going to be any blowback on his famous friends, who include Trump, Kevin Spacey, Bill Clinton, Chris Tucker and Prince Andrew. The fallout from this one might be huge.

Renee Zellweger channels Judy Garland in the first full trailer for Judy, which feels less like a movie and more like a “for your consideration” reel.

Angelina Jolie is back to being a baddie in the Maleficent 2 trailer.

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Welcome a Son

-It’s been a big week for baby news. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West welcomed a baby boy via surrogate.

-Also, Kim is quietly funding a legal team that has helped 17 prisoners gain freedom over the last three months. The people released were serving life in prison sentences for low-level drug offenses.

-It was a bloody day for network TV. ABC cancelled Speechless, The Kids Are Alright and Splitting Up Together, CBS cancelled Fam, ​Happy Together, Life In Pieces, Murphy Brown; Fox cancelled Lethal Weapon, The Cool Kids and The Passage, NBC cancelled I Feel Bad.

-I like this piece on how Game Of Thrones has relegated its female characters to the same lazy archetypes it once tried to avoid.

-This is also a great thread on how the writing on GoT has changed.

-I also like this piece on in the time of Me Too, the higher the profile, the harder it is to get corporations that benefit from their work to take women’s claims seriously. Now, the opposite seems to be happening.

-Marvel was so freaked out about Tom Holland giving away spoilers that they told him that Endgame’s last scene was a wedding.

-Meanwhile, here are some Marvel stars trying to escape and Endgame-themed escape room.

Julianna Marguiles is still bringing up her Good Fight pay fight and while I think she should get paid what she’s due, the way she’s doing this still strikes me as odd.

-Barry’s Anth Carrigan talks about being the best character on TV right now. I love Noho Hank!

-The latest Big Little Lies trailer unveils a tense new season.

-It looks like Renee Zellweger is staging a comeback. Her performance as Judy Garland in the new Judy trailer is stunning.

 

Kim Kardashian: Attorney at Law?

Kim Kardashian Lawyer Vogue

-In her new Vogue cover storyKim Kardashian says that she’s studying to be a lawyer and plans to take her bar exam in 2020. I know everyone’s making fun of this but the woman is clearly intelligent enough, and she seems really passionate when talking about prison reform in the interview. She’s also eager to talk about Kanye West‘s mental health, saying “Right now everything is really calm. But we can definitely feel episodes coming, and we know how to handle them. For him, being on medication is not really an option, because it just changes who he is.”

-Console your teens: despite all the rumours, Selena Gomez is not dating a guy Niall Horan from 1D.

-Oof, the hubris of actors. Lori Loughlin reportedly thought the DA was bluffing so she rejected their first plea and now faces additional, more serious  charges.

-Looks like the US media is dealing with the royal rumours with some distraction tactics. People’s new cover story is all about William and Harry growing apart, while Us Weekly is focusing on Kate‘s strong bond with the Queen.

-Meanwhile, Meghan Markle continues to gather Hollywood heavyweights in her corner. Her latest supporter? Oprah! While promoting her Apple series on mental health that she’s partnering with Prince Harry on, Oprah said “I think she’s being portrayed unfairly, and I feel that if people really knew her they would know that she is not only everything we perceive of her in being graceful and dynamic in holding that position, but she just has a wonderful, warm, giving, loving heart. I think it’s very unfair.”

-In a new op-ed for Time, Angelina Jolie calls for the support of Afghan women’s rights and more female representation in Afghan government delegations during peace talks.

Jeremy Renner is getting an Avengers spinoff show on Disney+. I’m not sure if anyone is actually clamoring for more about Hawkeye, but it sounds like it ill focus on the comic character Kate Bishop. The streaming service is rumoured to be launching in Nov.

Emma Stone fangirls over BTS in her SNL promos.

-This season of The Good Fight has been phenomenal, but it’s about to get better when Christine Baranski and Audra McDonald perform a Prince duet. I love everything about that clip.

Chris Hemsworth says a kind-hearted fan returned his photos from Miley and Liam‘s wedding after they were accidentally sent to her. The most adorable part of this story is that the pictures were on film, taken with an actual camera!

-I’m sort of excited for the return of Game of Thrones on Sunday. But I’m VERY excited for the return of Gay Of Thrones, the hilarious recaps by Queer Eye’s Jonathan.

-This Twitter thread on surreal celeb encounters is a delight. (Jackee Harry won with this response.)

-Foster the People and Imagine Dragons were beefing? Not gonna lie, I kind of thought they were the same band.

-I’m so glad that Special — the new Netflix show about a disabled gay man — is getting good reviews. I worry it’s going to be lost in the mix (especially because searching for “special” on Netflix results in a sea of comedy specials).

-I’m both happy and skeptical about Barry getting renewed for season 3 at HBO. Happy because season 2 is currently amazing; skeptical because the show went from asking “can this guy be redeemed?” to asking “when will this irredeemable guy get caught?” and I don’t know how long they can stretch that.

-We’re 100 days out from the new Lion King movie, so Disney dropped another trailer.
