-It was a long weekend so I missed Meghan Markle‘s pregnancy announcement. The British press didn’t though — and were even more horrible to her than usual.
-Meanwhile, the royal couple are set to do a sit-down interview with Oprah and “nothing is off-limits.”
–Simone Ashley won the coveted role of Kate in season two of Bridgerton. I know nothing about this actress, but that’s the best character in the entire book series so good on her.
-Speaking of the Bridgerton cast, Rege-Jean Page is going to star in Paramount’s Dungeons & Dragons movie with Chris Pine.
–Olivia Wilde made a social media post thanking Harry Styles for taking on a supporting role in a women-led movie, and people are not having it.
–Wilde also spent Valentine’s Day moving stuff out of Jason Sudeikis’ house and into Styles’.
-Awful news for Nicki Minaj: her father has passed away following a hit-and-run.
–Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is making noises again about running for president. He seems like a swell guy but can we just… not?
-This is an interesting piece on how everyone in Hollywood wants immunity, and lots of A-listers are looking into what it would take to get it — but they are also terrified of potential public shaming if it ever came out that they jumped the vaccine line (as they should be).

-Are Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox the 2021 version of Angelina and Billy Bob? He wears a necklace with a drop of her blood in it.
-Speaking of pulling an Angie, Kristen Wiig says her twin babies’ names are Luna and Shiloh.
-Speaking of Wiig, her new movie is incredibly weird and you definitely have to be in the right mindset for it (or high), but I will watch the bit where Jamie Dornan recreates a cheezy music video over and over and over. This is a very charming interview with him about it, in which he says he can sing “just as much as any douchey actor guy.”
–David Boreanaz has broken his silence and offered public support to Charisma Carpenter.
–Julie Bowen says her Modern Family TV son Nolan Gould gave her an ‘insane’ Happy Gilmore poster. “[Because of it] my kids think Happy Gilmore is a horror movie.”

-This is an excellent profile on Chloé Zhao, the creator of quiet indie dramas who has suddenly become the most-sought-after director in Hollywood, and an Oscar frontrunner.
-Oof, this is a damning thread on how Justin Timberlake talked about Britney Spears over the years.
-Also in her first interview in over a decade, Spears’ cousin and former assistant Alli Sims claims that Britney’s father Jamie was “100 percent” threatening Alli with her life when he forced her to cut off contact with Britney.
-Here’s the first trailer for the Gossip Girl reboot on HBO Max.
-Here’s the latest trailer for Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Sigh.
