Alicia Silverstone Brings Back Cher Horowitz

Alicia Silverstone resurrected her Clueless character  for Lip Sync Battle at it was epic! She looks exactly the same.

-20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion died on Monday following a shooting in South Florida outside a motorcycle dealership.

-In the fallout from Chloe Dykstra‘s essay which accused an ex of emotional and sexual abuse and seemed to imply she was referring to Chris Hardwick, the Nerdist founder has pulled out of Comic Con (where he was supposed to moderate the Doctor Who panel, among other things) and AMC has put his talk show on hold (the second season was supposed to debut on Sunday night with Donald Glover as his guest). Meanwhile, over the weekend Hardwick released a statement — and it’s pretty shitty, with tinges of Gamergate and gaslighting. When he said “As a husband, a son, and future father, I do not condone any kind of mistreatment of women,” I thought, ‘oh wow, his wife is expecting?’ Turns out, NOPE! He just meant that at some point in time he may be responsible for making a girl, which means he couldn’t possibly hurt one now…or something? His repeated mentions of how Chloe cheated on him is also cringe-y. On the (very slight) plus side, his crappy statement has people talking about toxic nerd culture.

-In a new interview, Sandra Bullock says she never worked with Harvey Weinstein, but she’d certainly heard of him. “I only heard what Harvey wanted people to hear, and that made me so f**king angry…People would say, ‘Well, you know how she got that role? She f**ked Harvey.’ I would say, ‘Shut the f**k up. You don’t know that.’ Then, later, to find out that woman was brutally attacked… They didn’t sleep with Harvey. Harvey wanted you to think that.”

-The Ocean’s 8 cast was on the Graham Norton show and it was priceless, from Rihanna telling Helena Bonham Carter why she’s never been invited to the MET gala (“that’s because you wear dresses like that”), to her getting called out for stealing wine glasses from bars.

-Incredibles 2 did incredibly well at the box office this weekend, earning $180 million and breaking the record for best animated debut.

-Actress Amandla Stenberg came out as gay in a new interview for Wonderland.

-Everyone’s still buzzing about the surprise album Beyonce and Jay Z dropped this weekend. I really liked this take about how they are disrupting the very institutions that have proclaimed throughout history that people who look like them don’t belong. (I still can’t believe they shut down the Louvre to shoot a video back in May and she still kept that sh*t locked so tight there were no leaks.)

Idris Elba just dropped a teaser for the new Luther episodes. Gimmie!!

-There’s still lots of questions about what exactly Apple’s streaming TV platform is going to look like, but they continue to keep throwing money at it. They just landed Oprah!

Jon Bernthal, who starred as Shane in The Walking Dead’s first two seasons, is going to appear in an episode of the show’s next season.

-The Darlene-focused Roseanne spinoff is inching closer to reality. THR reports that Roseanne Barr has waived rights to creator fees and backend profits if the spinoff goes ahead, which means the negotiation is now over what, if any, one-time payment she should receive as “go-away money.”

-Do you think Meghan Markle gets advanced warning every time her dad gives a dumb interview? For her sake, I hope so.

-Maybe I’ve just been tainted by this Sex and The City scene, but I really don’t get why celebrities are suddenly into pear-shaped diamonds.

Ariana Grande has a song on her new album called “Pete” so…yeah.

-The MTV Movie & TV Awards red carpet was all over the place, style-wise.

-During their emotional reunion, John Cena vowed to get his vasectomy reversed so he could give Nikki Bella a kid. Look, this may all have been fake drama for wrestling, but I’ve been weirdly invested in these two ever since he kind of got teary about the breakup on the Today Show.

Kristen Bell gets dumped at the alter and ends up taking her honeymoon cruise with her estranged father (played by Kelsey Grammer) in the trailer for Netflix’s Like Father.

Sandra Bullock and Her Ocean’s 8 Crew Kick Off Promo Blitz

sandra-bullock-instyle

-The best part about Ocean’s 8 is that we get the cast doing lots of press, including Sandra Bullock, who is usually pretty private. In her new In Style cover story, she talks about getting Ocean’s advice from George Clooney, laughing at Sarah Paulson try to sing like Rihanna on the set, and why she wants to ban the term “adopted children”: “Let’s all just refer to these kids as ‘our kids.’ Don’t say, ‘my adopted child.’ No one calls their kid their ‘IVF child’ or their ‘Oh, shit, I went to a bar and got knocked up child.’ Let’s just say, ‘our children.'”

-We also get a Variety cover with Cate Blanchett, who talks about inclusion riders, Woody Allen, and fighting for pay equity. She also seems to suggest Harvey Weinstein harassed her, too.

-In other Ocean’s 8 covers, Mindy Kaling looks stunning on Elle India.

Elsa Pataky says she doesn’t know how she and Chris Hemsworthsurvived as a couple‘ after he became famous. I don’t know how anyone famous does.

Ellen DeGeneres apologized to Jenna Dewan for introducing her as ‘Tatum’ on her show.

-The Good Fight has been renewed for a third season. Now that Canada has CBS All Access, I’m wondering how long we’ll get to have that show on a regular TV network before they move it to the app here. With the exception of a very silly subplot about microsdosing, this current season has been incredible. I’m still not subscribing to yet another service for it, though.

-This tweet from Neflix about Lost In Space’s fandom made me LOL.

Katie Couric defended Matt Lauer on Wendy Williams, saying “a lot of stuff gets misreported and blown out of proportion.” When asked about the button on his desk, she said “I don’t know what was happening, but a lot of NBC executives had those buttons that opened and closed doors. It was really just a privacy thing.”

-Meanwhile, female NBC staffers reportedly felt pressured to sign letter defending Tom Brokaw. A third woman has accused him of sexual misconduct.

-Apple gave a 10-episode series order to Are You Sleeping, a drama about a true crime podcast that stars Octavia Spencer and is produced by Reese Witherspoon.

Lauryn Hill doesn’t seem super happy that Drake sampled her on “Nice for What.”

-It looks like the core cast of Suits  (Gabriel Macht, Patrick Adams, Rick Hoffman, Sarah Rafferty and Gina Torres) made the cut when it came to royal wedding invitations, as well as Victoria and David Beckham, Ben and Jessica Mulroney, Priyanka Chopra and Serena Williams.

Brad Pitt‘s depressing weatherman returned to The Jim Jefferies Show.

-It sounds like the next season of Arrested Development will drop very soon.

-I’m having a really weird, emotional day because this video of Ariana Grande surprising fans with Jimmy Fallon made me tear up.  A producer later tweeted that even though they had enough footage, she insisted that all the fans who came got a surprise, so they kept filming for another 45 minutes.

-I thought the latest season of UnREAL was way better than the last one, but still not good enough to keep me tuning in. But that was before I realized that the next season is making Rachel the suitress! I’m so back!

-In other baby news, did Prince William just reveal that they’re expecting a boy?

-I didn’t read Cardi B‘s GQ interview  right away because a Caity Weaver piece deserves to be savored. She once again proved she’s the best feature writer in the biz with this thoughtful, non-judgemental profile, which covers the singer’s stripper past, illegal butt injections, and her love of political trivia.

-Meanwhile Cardi has denied rumours of a feud with Nicki Minaj, but Nicki now says it was real for a while.

-Variety’s Power of Women New York issue features Tina Fey, Alicia Keys, Emily Blunt, Tarana Burke and Margaret Atwood. All of the interviews are great but I especially liked Fey’s.  (“In comedy rooms, women are treated like expensive cappuccino machines. It’s like, ‘We have one. Why would we have two?'”)

Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson are here to remind us of the power of eye masks.

Eve remembered the time Janet Jackson  took care of her after someone drugged her drink at an awards show afterparty.

Kerry Washington proved her mad lib skills on Fallon.

-The first trailer for Pose is here and I am here for it! James Van Der Beek and Kate Mara  star in Ryan Murphy‘s LGBTQ-themed dance-musical set in New York City in the 1980s. The FX show features the largest-ever cast of transgender actors in a scripted series.

Martin Scorsese is set to direct an SCTV reunion documentary for Netflix.

Julianna Margulies‘ wig is wigging me out in these Dietland photos. I get that she seems to have something in her contract where she’ll only wear wigs, but good lord, can they not find ones that look good?! This is somehow worse that the ones from The Good Wife.

Cameron Diaz has reportedly arranged a private jet to fly a dozen of Gwyneth Paltrow‘s friends to Mexico this weekend to celebrate her upcoming wedding.

-Shameless/Roseanne star Emma Kenney says she is seeking treatment for “her battles.”

-Fresh Off the Boat star Randall Park has joined the cast of Aquaman — even though the movie has already been shot and is in “pick ups” phase. That’s a not great sign.

-This preview clip of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which has Jake singing “I Want It That Way”with a bunch of suspects, made me laugh and laugh.

Rebel Wilson has been awarded more than $1.1. million in legal reimbursement on top of the $4.5 million from her defamation case.

-Dear lord, Katie Cassidy  is claiming she once turned down Prince Harry. Oh hon, no.

Dwayne Johnson gets it. We don’t deserve him.

-Everything old is new again. Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt just closed deals for a Mad About You revival.

-It’s been a big day in TV critics news. Maureen Ryan  is leaving Variety, and Andy Greenwald is creating a TV show with Mr Robot’s Sam Esmail.

Sandra Bullock and her friends assemble to rob Anne Hathaway at the MET Gala in the new Oceans 8 trailer. Not gonna lie, I fist-pumped at least twice watching this.
