-Whoa, what did Don Cheadle do to Kathy Griffin?

Tiffany Haddish and Tracy Morgan star in the teaser for season two of the TBS sitcom, The Last OG.

This tweet slayed me.

-I’m intrigued by the CW’s reboot of Roswell. The reviews are very mixed, with Variety liking it, and The Hollywood Reporter and the AV Club being a bit more critical.

Sasheer Zamata reworked Louis C.K. terrible jokes about the Parkland kids and showed him how it’s done.

-Yikes! Best-selling author Sherrilyn Kenyon told fans she suspects her husband poisoned her.

-My newspaper did a full-page spread today on why Chris Brown is trash and it was all kinds of amazing.

-The more Kevin Hart talks about what he planned to do at the Oscars, the more I think we dodged a bullet.

-I completely forgot that Jake Gyllenhaal is going to be in the next Spider Man movie and when he shows up as Mysterio in the new trailer, I legit squealed.

-I actually love Saoirse Ronan‘s new cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK (and the inside photo spread is to die for), but I get why people don’t love it. The “spirit of Great Britain” line doesn’t really work for when you’re featuring an Irish actress.

-I dig this Aya Cash interview about moving on from You’re The Worst, her friendship with costar Chris Geere (“Chrissy and I are total opposites in every sense. He’s got all this light, positive energy. Compared to him I’m a f*cking ditch. He likes John Mayer. Oh my God, he loves One Direction. I listen to Perfume Genius, and he always says ‘why do you listen to this sad shit?'”), and her attempts at spon-con (“I knew if you have a certain amount of [Instagram] followers you could get a bed, and I contacted them, you probably know which company I’m talking about, and they were like, No, now it’s 600,000 followers that you need for the bed, and I had like 50-thousand something. I was like, ‘F*ck!'”)

Zayn Malik and Gigi Hadid broke up again. For now.

Scarlett Johansson says it’s “useless” to fight back against the deepfake porn that uses her face, which is probably true but deeply depressing.

Diddy hired his girlfriend a personal trainer, and then reportedly broke up with her due to suspicious that they were hooking up. Maybe this is just karma for implying that your longtime girlfriend needs to get in better shape?

-The CW is moving forward with a Batwoman stand-alone series starring Ruby Rose which kind of surprises me because after she was introduced in this year’s crossover, the buzz about her character seemed to die out. If anything, everyone seemed to be talking about how Tyler Hoechlin deserves his own Superman show.

-Luther’s new season has begun airing in the UK and this one clip makes me want to see it NOW.

-It’s funny; everyone’s talking about how the newly announced Coachella lineup is the weakest one yet, but it’s the first time I’ve seriously considered going back in years. Yeah, the main draws aren’t really headliner caliber (except Ariana Grande) but the mid-level acts are great (Janelle Monáe, Christine and the Queens, Kid Cudi, CHVRCHES, the 1975, Weezer, etc.). Also, the Idris Elba DJ set would be hilarious.

-Meanwhile, Kanye West‘s camp says that he was negotiating to be a Coachella headliner but it fell through over disagreements about the stage design.

-Black Mirror: Bandersnatch star Will Poulter was driven off of Twitter because people are terrible.

-Margot Robbie and Michael B Jordan share notes about acting while “basically naked” in a new interview.

-Speaking of actor on actor interviews, I really liked this one with John Krasinski and Rosamund Pike.

-The Notebook is becoming a Broadway musical.

-2018 felt like a decent year in terms of well-reviewed movies by women filmmakers (Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Destroyer, Private Life, You Were Never Really Here, The Rider, Leave No Trace, etc.). But most women were confined to the indie film world. In fact, the number of women directing top Hollywood films dropped again in 2018, with women directing only 8% of last year’s highest-grossing movies.

-The biggest surprise of this week is that Bumblebee is still holding strong at 93% on Rotten Tomatoes. Is this what happens when you let a woman write a Transformers movie?

-This also surprises me: worldwide, Aquaman has now made more money than Wonder Woman.

-This New York Times article about the exploding popularity of Turkish dramas is certainly making me feel better about my recent TV rabbit holes. They’re so good, but so confusing? Why do they blur out all the alcohol bottles? Why do people say “bon appetit” after they’ve already eaten? What kind of a greeting is “work easy”? I have no idea, but I love it.

Punisher season 2’s trailer has been released, along with the premiere date (Jan 18). There’s no mention of Karen, so I’m not interested.

-Speaking of upcoming TV, Better Things season 3 starts Feb 28, and Killing Eve season 2 is coming on April 7 (which is wayyyy sooner than anyone expected).

-Fox’s new celebrity talent show The Masked Singer, based on a South Korean show in which famous people wear masks and compete in a singing competition, is a big hit. Getting an impressive 2.9 rating in the A18-49 demo and 9.2M viewers, last night’s ep was the network’s top-rated series launch since Empire four years ago. Critics seem to love it, too.

Bill Hader broke down in a new interview when talking about the fact that he only spent 5 days with his kids last summer.

-Lifetime’s three-night documentary on R. Kelly is airing this week, and by all accounts it’s a harrowing and explosive look at not only the singer, but his famous friends and enablers.

-I really liked this interview with Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer on the end of Broad City and what’s next for them. (Though I wanted to hear more about the legal issues with creating a season premiere produced in a way that looks like Instagram Stories.)

Mads Mikkelsen plays a man stranded in after an airplane crash in the Arctic trailer.

 

Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra’s Never-ending Wedding

Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas Wedding

-If you thought you already knew everything about Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas‘ wedding — you’d probably be right. But they’re still on the new cover of People and all over Hello!’s social media. Good for them for wringing every last cent from the festivities, I guess.

-Meanwhile, this tongue-in-cheek deep-dive into the validity of their relationship is hilarious. “Nicholas Jonas married into a fraudulent relationship against his will this past Sunday, December the 2, and I’ll tell you why I think so.”

-Killing Eve’s Jodie Comer looks amazing on the cover of Wonderland. I hope she becomes a huge star.

-Great forking news: The Good Place just got an early renewal for season 4, so maybe 2018 isn’t a total garbage fire.

Meghan Markle and Michelle Obama chatted privately last night when the royal stopped by the former first lady’s London book tour.

-Meanwhile, here’s more scoop on who’s leaking all those stories from the palace.

-GQ interviewed a bunch of people about the late Anthony Bourdain and collected their stories, and goddammit the resulting article made me weepy. “He turned to Tony and said, ‘How far can you keep going? Where else can you go? You can’t go to the moon!’ And Tony goes, ‘Really? Why not? I’ll go to the moon and make an episode on the moon. I’ll go anywhere.'”

-The CW is developing a Jane The Virgin spin-off series that will be written by long-time show writer Valentina Garza and will involve Gina Rodriguez.

Kayne West apologized after being caught on his phone at Cher‘s Broadway show. (This is in no way an excuse, but apparently the show is really, really bad.)

-Wait, Demi Moore allegedly has a secret girlfriend? I can’t believe I missed this until now!

-Netflix will reportedly pay WarnerMedia $100M in 2019 to continue streaming Friends (up from $30M). This is NUTS — especially because it will soon be available on another streaming site next year.

-BBC just announced that Luther will air on New Year’s Day. Perfect hangover cure!

-The big guns came out for Ryan Murphy’s Walk of Fame star ceremony, including Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Lange and Sarah Paulson.

-The Actors on Actors interviews always result in some interesting pairings. The latest has Timothee Chalamet and Emma Stone talking about dealing with rejection, Melissa McCarthy and Lupita Nyong’o discussing women in Hollywood, Charlize Theron and Michael B Jordan talking about the impact of Black Panther, and Lady Gaga and Lin-Manuel Miranda talking about writing Shallow.

-Variety’s list of 10 directors to watch for 2019 includes 6 women.

-People are loving the new Captain Marvel trailer. (Though I’m not quite sure why people are calling it a “course correction” because I loved the first trailer too.)
