Kim Kardashian’s Island Getaway Sparks Anger

Kim Kardashian announced on Twitter that she celebrated her 40th birthday by bringing her friends and family to a private island, because she’s rich enough to have access to rapid testing and dumb enough to not understand how tone-deaf it is to rub everyone’s faces in it. Twitter was quick to react with lots of snarky memes.

-Speaking of covid testing, Stephen Amell announced on a podcast that he had to take three weeks off shooting his new Starz wrestling series after he recently tested positive. He talked a lot about how safe he’d been, but as someone who follows him and a bunch of his friends on social media, I wasn’t seeing that. He was having parties in the thick of it, he flew to Canada for weeks, and just yesterday he posted a pic with some new cast members that immediately made me think “there’s too many people in your house.”

Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton announced their engagement today on Instagram.

Chrissy Teigen penned a heartfelt essay to discuss the loss of her son and to thank everyone for the outpouring of support.

Keith Raniere, the founder of a sex cult that operated under the guise of the self-help group NXIVM, has been sentenced to 120 years in prison. His cult is the subject of HBO’s docuseries The Vow.

-Orange Is the New Black’s Uzo Aduba will star in HBO’s In Treatment revival, which will begin shooting in the fall for a 2021 debut. I adored this show and I’m so glad it’s coming back.

-This is a big move for network TV and I hope it continues: CBS is cutting most of its dramas and comedies down to 16-18 episodes.

-Netflix has picked up worldwide rights to Concrete Cowboy, the Idris Elba drama that recently premiered at the Toronto Film Festival. I dug it.

-I wasn’t sure what to expect from Sarah Cooper‘s Netflix special, but the reviews are good.

-The latest trailer for the Saved By The Bell revival offers our first peek at Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Tiffani Thiessen.

Jon Stewart is getting back into current affairs television with a new series for Apple.

-The Midnight Sky trailer shows a lonely George Clooney trying to warn astronauts away from Earth. It drops on Netflix on Dec 23.

Shawn Mendes Teases Fans with Shower Scene

-The trailer for the new Shawn Mendes doc is out and it starts with him in the shower, which means Netflix has a lock on what his fans wanna see.

Dominic West is reportedly in talks to play Prince Charles in the fifth and sixth seasons of The Crown, which is kind of delicious considering the past few weeks.

Mark Ruffalo has jumped to Chris Pratt’s defense, calling him “not overtly political.”

Kim Kardashian sat down with David Letterman for his Netfix show and offered a clue as to why the family is ending their reality series: “Realistically, we can post something on social media and make more than we do a whole season.” Gawd, that’s depressing.

-After postponing their wedding twice, Taraji P. Henson and fiancé Kelvin Hayden have decided to split.

-Teen Wolf’s Tyler Posey used his OnlyFans account to confirm he’s hooked up with guys. Didn’t he already do this, or am I just getting it confused with all the blind items?

-BIPOC members of the cast of Glow shared a letter they sent to Netflix before the show was cancelled, asking the creators asking for better representation.

-Netflix once again proves that you shouldn’t fall in love with their shows unless you like heartbreak — they canceled Away, starring Hilary Swank and Josh Charles. I’m surprised by this one; it felt like a show that critics didn’t love or talk about but was drawing in the type of quietly loyal audience that watches CBS procedurals.

-Netflix confirmed that Dawson’s Creek won’t have its iconic theme song when it hits the streaming giant’s library next month, instead replaced with Jann Arden’s “Run Like Mad.” Good for her!

-I know this is sounding like a broken record, but my god, what’s going on with Britney Spears’ Instagram?

Harvey Weinstein’s request for a bail release pending appeal has been denied, reportedly due to his overwhelming amount of resources and motive to flee the country.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are reprising their Hocus Pocus roles for a virtual reunion on Oct 30. Tickets are $10 to support the New York Restoration Project and special guests will include Meryl Streep, Jennifer Hudson, Glenn Close, Elvira, Billy Crystal, Billy Eichner, Adam Lambert, Thora Birch, Sarah Silverman, Martin Short and more.

-Warner Bros. is eager to release Wonder Woman 1984 in 2020, but there likely won’t be decision about its debut for at least another few weeks as movie theatres in parts of New York are reopening. I still don’t think it’s gonna happen this year.

Jake Gyllenhaal is teaming up with Canadian director Denis Villeneuve for a new HBO limited series. (I still haven’t forgiven either of them for the ending of their last project together, Enemy.)

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fischer hosted a Borat screening that was attended by Katy Perry, Josh Gad and Ariana Grande.

-Aw man, Jeff Bridges announced on Twitter last night that he has lymphoma.

Kim Kardiashain_Grazia-USA

Kim Kardashian covers the first issue of Grazia USA and reveals that Kanye West contracted covid around the time Tom Hanks had it. “Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on. It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help. I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn’t feeling good. It was a challenge because it was so unknown. Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.”

Chris Evans managed to squeeze in a Trump insult and a thirst trap all within the last 24 hours. Bless.

Rihanna apologized for using a song that included sacred Islamic verses during her lingerie fashion show. As apologies go this was a very good one — though probably should have gone on her feed rather than her stories.

Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling are calling BS on Jessica Alba‘s no eye contact claim on the 90210 set. The best part about her claim is that I haven’t seen this many rumours surface about Alba’s terrible behaviour since when she was shooting Dark Angel. Did she Streisand Effect herself?

-2020 just won’t give up: Eddie Van Halen has passed away from throat cancer at 65.

-The mother of Katie Holmes‘ new boyfriend is reportedly not thrilled that he dumped his fiancée of 18 months to be with her.

-The Good Place’s William Jackson Harper wrote a disturbing thread about being blocked by the government from screening Malcolm X at military academies.

-I liked The Haunting of Hill House but for some reason never watched the last episode. I should catch up because the follow up, The Haunting of Bly Manor, starts this week and is getting good reviews.

Tyra Banks read out the wrong bottom two names on live TV during Dancing with the Stars last night. To make matters worse, they put her in this outfit.

Marc Maron is pushing for Netflix to wrap up Glow in a 2-hour movie and I would love this, especially since it ended in such a weird place. It feels like a lot of people are getting gun-shy about starting new Netflix series, knowing that they will likely be cancelled mid-flow.

-Is Chris Pratt actually mocking celebs who urge people to vote? In this economy??

Mandy Patinkin‘s anti-Trump video is a work of art.

-This is a very good, very bleak read on the growing crisis facing movie theaters big and small.

Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Diane Kruger, and Penélope Cruz team up to stop WWIII in the trailer for The 355. I’m very into this.
