-Variety’s Power of Women covers continue to crush it, but the Michaela Coel one is spectacular. In the interview, she talks about Jane Fonda being a fan of I Will Destroy You (“I imagine if I bumped into her outside of the supermarket, we’d be nerding out on all of the hidden meanings and layers because I can see that she really gets it. She watches it the way that I dreamed the audience would watch it”), and “meeting” Kerry Washington at the SAG Awards (“I imagine, if the show was in real life, she’d be sat over there and I’d be way too shy to go over and say, ‘Hey, I’ve been watching you on my screen for decades.’ I was still too shy to say any of that on Zoom, but she knew my name. I was like ‘Oh my God, hi!’ You can’t do that in real life”)

Jessica Alba is having a good week. Her Honest Company officially went public, raising $413 million in its IPO.

-Sanditon’s cancelation has been reversed by PBS, which just ordered two more seasons of the show. I’m guessing this wouldn’t have happened without the breakout success of Bridgerton. I liked the first season well enough but it has the potential to be much better.

Lilly Singh’s NBC late-night show is coming to an end, but she’s keeping busy. She’s set to star in a scripted comedy for Kenya Barris at Netflix and develop unscripted far for NBCU.

Selma Blair Is a Survivor

Selma-Blair

-In her Town & Country interview, Selma Blair talks about living with multiple sclerosis, and the power of makeup (“Makeup is not trivial to me. If anything moves the needle for me in my life—even before my diagnosis or challenges—it is my gorgeous war paint…I don’t mind if my muscles get caught at the intersection of a slow brain signal. I just want those words to come from lips covered in Chanel gloss”).

-Speaking of splits, Jennifer Lopez‘s camp is saying she broke it off with ARod because she could no longer trust him.

-I’m so glad Shadow and Bones (which hits Netflix this Friday) is getting such glowing reviews — it’s 93% on RottenTomatoes. “Game of Thrones meets your fave CW show” sounds like perfection. I thought the original trilogy was pretty good but then ended up reading the other series, Six of Crows, since the show will also feature those characters too, and that series was amazing. I’m not surprised that the Crows segments (which are less magic-y and more heist-y), seem to be getting the most attention. I’m also very glad the show retained all the shipper goodness.

-Odd couple Lucy Hale and Skeet Ulrich are an odd couple no more.

Robert De Niro‘s lawyers claim he’s working at an unsustainable pace in order to support his estranged wife. He’s also suing a former employee.

The Leading Ladies of the Oscars

Viola Davis, Chloé Zhao and Regina King are on Entertainment Weekly’s Oscars issue. I have serious arm envy right now…

Demi Lovato detailed what really went down between her and ex-fiance Max Ehrich. In her doc, she says “We were only together four to five months, and like, honestly, it was false advertising.” She added that starting to date in quarantine accelerated the relationship. “I think I rushed into something that I thought was what I was supposed to do. I realized as time went on that I didn’t actually know the person that I was engaged to…It was 2020. You didn’t get to ‘normally date’ like you do.”

Ray Fisher spilled some tea in the new THR, and said he had to explain to Joss Whedon “some of the most basic points of what would be offensive to the Black community,” to which Whedon replied “It feels like I’m taking notes right now, and I don’t like taking notes from anybody — not even Robert Downey Jr.” Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa reportedly had similar experiences with the director, and a source told THR: “Joss was bragging that he’s had it out with Gal. He told her he’s the writer and she’s going to shut up and say the lines and he can make her look incredibly stupid in this movie.”

-The article was not just about Whedon. It also talks about former DC Entertainment President and Chief Creative Officer Geoff John. Apparently before Bridgeton, Regé-Jean Page did not advance in the casting process for SYFY’s Krypton because Johns said Superman could not have a Black grandfather, and he also prevented the Krypton creators from making one of the characters, Adam Strange, gay or bisexual.

-Meanwhile, Regé-Jean Page was reportedly offered an opportunity to return to Bridgerton as a guest star in three to five episodes of season two — at a rate of $50,000 an episode — but declined.

Sheryl Underwood says she and Sharon Osbourne haven’t spoken since their confrontation on The Talk.

Jimmy Fallon welcomed TikTok dance creators to his show after the Addison Rae backlash.

James Charles has apologized for poor behavior. Again.

Aaron Rodgers and Shailene Woodley did an IG video together to celebrate his Jeopardy guest hosting stint.

-The showrunner of the CBS sitcom The Neighbors has stepped down, saying “At this moment, in light of everything going on in the world, I had concluded that I am not the right person to continue to tell these stories.” The move comes after two Black writers reportedly left the show over race-related issues.
