Kim Kardashian Finally Files for Divorce

-After months of speculation, Kim Kardashian made a Friday afternoon news drop and officially filed for divorce from Kanye West following nearly seven years of marriage.

-Buckingham Palace announced that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have informed Queen Elizabeth that they will not return as working members of the Royal Family. Their honorary military appointments and royal patronages will be redistributed, and a statement from the palace says that “all are saddened by their decision” but the couple “remain much loved members of the family.” Harry’s also been asked to return his honorary military appointments, which seems like a low blow since he’s an actual combat veteran who continues to do lots of work with veterans.

Harry and Meghan have pushed back on the Queen’s statement, saying “As evidenced by their work over the past year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex remain committed to their duty and service to the U.K. and around the world and have offered their continued support to the organizations they have represented regardless of official role. We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”

Regé-Jean Page tested out a new nickname in the first promo for his SNL hosting debut. (Also, Regé has a hard “g”? Feel like a very bad fangirl for not knowing that…)

-Do not click on this if you have not already seen Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar. But if you have, enjoy reliving the best 2 minutes and 20 seconds from that movie. Jamie Dornan needs all the award for this.

Katherine McPhee plays an aspiring country singer/nanny to the children of a cowboy, played by Eddie Cibrian, in the trailer for Netflix’s Country Comfort. Multi-cam sitcoms aren’t my thing, but this looks especially bad.

-Here’s the trailer for Shiva Baby, which I saw last TIFF and really enjoyed.

Josh Lawson, Jessica McNamee, Hiroyuki Sanada star in the Mortal Kombat trailer … because apparently we’ve learned nothing about the success of video game adaptations.

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas Split

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have split up . It’s a holiday in the US, which makes it a good day to try to slip this news under the radar. Still, the People quotes from sources are pretty supportive of both sides, and yet she’s been officially positioned as the dumper and he’s the dumpee. I wonder how they worked that out.

Armie Hammer has apologized after his finsta leaked and it included a post that showed an unidentified woman in lingerie on her hands and knees on a hotel bed, whom he referred to as ‘Miss Cayman.’ He issued a statement to the Cayman Compass: “I would like to clarify that the person in my video, which was stolen from my private Instagram, is not Miss Cayman.” First of all, if he posted it to Instagram it’s not exactly “stolen.” Secondly, *this* is what he feels the need to apologize about?! I gotta hope he’s just getting warmed up.

-This is a good take on how the cannibalism accusations are the least disturbing in this saga. His last girlfriend said she checked herself into a 30-day partial hospitalization program designed to treat PTSD and trauma following their 2-month relationship last year. I also liked this thread about how damaging it is for him to say he prefers rough sex but stopped wanting it with his wife because that’s the mother of his children and he grew to respect her too much.

-He was also reportedly fantasizing about sex during BLM protests, so it just gets better and better.

Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey look like they’re having a blast on vacation. Are paps just hanging out in St. Barts or….?

Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League is going to be a 4-hour movie on HBO Max, not a 4-hour miniseries. Twitter seems to think this is a big deal, but I continue to care a negative amount about this entire project.

Matt Damon has joined the cast of Thor: Love and Thunder. There’s no word if he’s got a bigger role than the cameo he made in Ragnarok.

-I like these predictions about how TV may soon change. Moving late-night shows to prime time seems like a no-brainer.

-Here’s the trailer for the new series The Equalizer, premiering after the Super Bowl. I’m not really into CBS shows, but I *am* into watching Queen Latifah being an ass-kicking vigilante.

-According to Us Weekly, Kim Kardashian wanted to control the PR campaign surrounding her divorce and figure out a settlement before filing and making it public, but she was blindsided by yesterday’s leaks. People also reports that she’s been preparing to file papers.

-I really hope Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are in the same bubble, seeing how they’re visiting each other while LA’s cases are surging.

-I’m glad that Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist saw a ratings jump when it returned last night. It’s so, so good. But it sucks that Lauren Graham has had to be written out of this season because she committed to another show that was supposed to be done filming, but the pandemic delayed it.

-Of course Kylie Jenner is cashing in on covid by releasing a luxury hand sanitizer. Of course she is.

-Promising Young Woman is coming to VOD next Friday. It’s worth the rental. Trust me.
