Kim Kardiashain_Grazia-USA

Kim Kardashian covers the first issue of Grazia USA and reveals that Kanye West contracted covid around the time Tom Hanks had it. “Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on. It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help. I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn’t feeling good. It was a challenge because it was so unknown. Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.”

Chris Evans managed to squeeze in a Trump insult and a thirst trap all within the last 24 hours. Bless.

Rihanna apologized for using a song that included sacred Islamic verses during her lingerie fashion show. As apologies go this was a very good one — though probably should have gone on her feed rather than her stories.

Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling are calling BS on Jessica Alba‘s no eye contact claim on the 90210 set. The best part about her claim is that I haven’t seen this many rumours surface about Alba’s terrible behaviour since when she was shooting Dark Angel. Did she Streisand Effect herself?

-2020 just won’t give up: Eddie Van Halen has passed away from throat cancer at 65.

-The mother of Katie Holmes‘ new boyfriend is reportedly not thrilled that he dumped his fiancée of 18 months to be with her.

-The Good Place’s William Jackson Harper wrote a disturbing thread about being blocked by the government from screening Malcolm X at military academies.

Tyra Banks read out the wrong bottom two names on live TV during Dancing with the Stars last night. To make matters worse, they put her in this outfit.

Marc Maron is pushing for Netflix to wrap up Glow in a 2-hour movie and I would love this, especially since it ended in such a weird place. It feels like a lot of people are getting gun-shy about starting new Netflix series, knowing that they will likely be cancelled mid-flow.

-Is Chris Pratt actually mocking celebs who urge people to vote? In this economy??

Mandy Patinkin‘s anti-Trump video is a work of art.

-This is a very good, very bleak read on the growing crisis facing movie theaters big and small.

Jessica Chastain, Lupita Nyong’o, Diane Kruger, and Penélope Cruz team up to stop WWIII in the trailer for The 355. I’m very into this.

-Gilmore Girls debuted 20 years ago today. In a rare streaming-to-broadcast deal, The CW will air Netflix’s Gilmore Girls revival in November.

-Aw nuts. Despite receiving a fourth and final renewal, Netflix announced they won’t be creating any more episodes of Glow due to the COVID-19 shutdown. I hate these reverse decisions on renewals. I get they can’t shoot anything now, but is there no way to hold the show for a year?

-Speaking of Netflix, they also opted not to pick up a second season of Teenage Bounty Hunters, which is surprising because that show seemed universally beloved.

-A Netflix show that is NOT universally beloved right now is Emily in Paris. I tried but the way they portray social media managers was too much to get me past episode 3. It’s pretty, but the lead character is too arrogant to raise it to Younger or The Bold Type levels of fun.

-The movie industry has basically given up 2020. Following last week’s announcement that the new James Bond would move to Easter 2021 and F9 would also be pushed to May 2021, Denis Villeneuve’s Dune has bumped its release date all the way to next October.

-Meanwhile, Hocus Pocus was re-released and it nearly beat Tenet at this weekend’s box office.

-The Game of Thrones creators talked about that coffee cup showing up in the final season (“I couldn’t believe it”) but seem pretty unapologetic about the reaction to the finale.

-I never want to watch any Game of Thrones-adjacent thing again but good for Paddy Considine for getting cast as the lead in the prequel House Of The Dragon. I adore him.

-The only good part about the SNL premiere was Chloe Fineman‘s impression of Drew Barrymore, which Barrymore adored.

-Speaking of kids movies, Anne Hathaway terrorizes children in the first trailer for HBO Max’s The Witches, costarring Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci and Chris Rock. Weirdly, it’s still slated for a theatrical release in Canada.

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky Get Flirty For Fenty

Rihanna and A$AP Rocky sat down to interview each other and talked skincare, beauty icons, favourite TV shows, and classic cartoons. They’ve got an adorable rapport. I love when she makes fun of his first red carpet appearance: “You coulda used some Fenty Skin back then.”

-Congrats to Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, just welcomed a baby girl to the world, their first child together: Daisy Dove Bloom. (Ok, I gotta give it to them. Daisy Bloom is an adorable name.)

This is a good look at how Trevor Noah‘s The Daily Show has gone from being jokes about the news to, more and more, the news with some jokes amid the pandemic — and it’s clearly working. His viewership numbers are astounding, and his videos have racked up millions of views on YouTube, including an extended interview he released in March that went viral.

-It’s worth watching Stephen Colbert’s segment last night, in which he talked about how NBA players are showing more leadership than the RNC convention. “Why should we pay attention to what they’re saying if none of what they’re saying tonight is about what’s happening in America right now? Why should we watch their reality show if it doesn’t reflect our reality?”

-In an new Zoom chat, Issa Rae and Yvonne Orji talked the most emotional scenes to shoot for Insecure season four. God, I hope they both clean up at the Emmys.

-Speaking of Emmy campaign appearances, watching Succession stars Sarah Snook and Matthew Macfadyen get giggly over Shiv and Tom is a delight.

-Grey’s Anatomy alum Sara Ramirez has announced that they are non-binary. They quietly changed their pronouns on social media a while back, and today they posted about their gender directly: “In me is the capacity to be Girlish boy, Boyish girl, Boyish boy, Girlish girl, All, Neither.”

-This is a great piece explaining OnlyFans, the spotlight on its new celebrity users, and how platforms defined and popularized by sex workers are often the first ones to deny them their place at the table.

-People are on baby bump watch for Jennifer Lawrence because of these pics.

-Weirdly, there’s lots of talk that TIFF is denying critics press accreditation this year — which makes no sense because pretty much everything is digital so it’s not like there’s capacity concerns. Hopefully this is a sign that they’re reversing their rejections.

-The Ringer posted a history of movie costars who hated each other and it’s exactly the type of content I needed today.

Anya Taylor-Joy and Marielle Heller star in the trailer for The Queen’s Gambit, Netflix’s limited series adaptation of Walter Tevis‘ novel.
