-This weekend, a comedian tweeted “Right now we all need a little kindness. You know, like Ellen Degeneres always talks about! She’s also notoriously one of the meanest people alive.

-I don’t understand all this talk about how Emma Watson wearing a supposedly see-through top in Vanity Fair makes her not a feminist??! Her response to the outrage is kind of perfect: “Feminism is about giving women choice. Feminism is not a stick with which to beat other women with. It’s about freedom; it’s about liberation…I really don’t know what my tits have to do with it.” Bless her.

-The Good Place’s creator Mike Schur has emerged from radio silence to explain that big finale twist.

He talks about current late-night hosts (“I don’t want to criticize Jimmy Fallon but I can only tell you what I would have done in that situation: I would have gone to work on Trump”), on being tough during his interviews with Paris Hilton (“She cried and I called her and apologized. I think I bought her a car, too”), and Joaquin Phoenix  (“I mean, he came out begging to be beat up. How can you not take a couple of swings?”) and adjusting to being a normal person (“I needed a pair of shoelaces. And I thought, ‘Hell, where do you get shoelaces?'”)

Castle’s Nathan Fillion Breaks Silence on Stana Katic’s Exit

-Why does it feel like a network show is imploding every week these days? Today, it’s Castle’s turn. I don’t watch the show but even I’d heard rumblings about the long-rumoured onset tensions. Now the lead actress has been let go (add her to the ever-growing fired actress pile!) and though the official explanation is “financial reasons,” even the trades are mentioning her reported troubles with Nathan Fillion (who didn’t really help matters with his delayed, impersonal statement about it — especially compared with her other coworkers’ responses.)

-Meanwhile, Us Weekly says things got so bad between Fillion and Stana Katic last season that the network made them go to “couples counseling.” It clearly didn’t work.

Jared Leto knew better to pull any of his stupid Joker bullshit on Viola Davis during the Suicide Squad shoot.

Prince Harry and Prince William visited the Star Wars 8 set and it was ADORABLE!

Stephen and Robbie Amell’s crowdfunding movie just passed the million-dollar mark. That makes me feel better about not contributing yet. I mean, I will eventually because I’m not a monster but still…

Patrick Stewart makes a better woman than I could ever hope to be. Depressing but unsurprising.

-Buzzfeed titled this article “This selfie of Milo Ventimiglia proves he’s still the hottest of Rory Gilmore’s boyfriends” and my entire Twitter TL was like:

Michael Strahan is leaving Live with Kelly and Michael. Can someone other than me break this news to my mother? I will pay you in doughnuts.

She also revealed on The Talk that she separated from her husband last year but is trying to shelter him from any public fallout because she’s a wonderful human being.

-Speaking of wonderful human beings, Tracy Morgan canceled a comedy show in Mississippi over their anti-LGBTQ law — and he did a special comedy show for the staff of the hospital that saved his life.

-Dafuq is going on with Elizabeth Banks‘ Power Rangers costume? The whole point of this movie is nostalgia so of course, just go ahead and change everything.
