Tiffany Haddish Takes To The Streets

Tiffany Haddish and Billy Eichner took to the streets to cast a more inclusive Hocus Pocus. (It’s so funny, despite the unnecessary Kathy Najimy slam.)

-I’ll never question Meghan Markle‘s hair conspiracists again… (That’s not true; I totally will. But they were right about the no waves = pregnant thing, I guess.)

-Also, this is the first outfit I’ve seen her in where she kinda sorta maybe looks pregnant.

-A David Schwimmer doppleganger is wanted by the police, and the internet is having a field day with it. The British police even had to issue a statement confirming that they have ruled out the actor as a suspect in a beer theft case after posting a “wanted” picture of someone who bore a striking resemblance to the Friends star. At least he seems to be having a lot of fun with it, posting his own alibi video.

-Everyone wants to know all about Jennifer Garner’s new boyfriend, a CEO who she’s reportedly been dating for 6 months. He seems very cute in this company video he shot.

Ellen Pompeo says she was “completely shocked” by backlash over her paycheck. Um, really?

-Also, Ellen gave some pretty terrible advice about ovarian cancer screenings, which is not great Bob. If we can’t take medical advice from fake TV doctors, who can we take it from?!

Ariana Grande‘s family is reportedly relieved that her engagement to Pete Davidson fell through, sources told People.

-How can Disney be talking about “rebooting” the Pirates franchise? It’s still an active franchise — they just released one!

-I absolutely agree with this take that Jennifer’s Body would kill if it were released today.

-Timeless fans, expect an air date announcement about the wrap-up movie soon.

-Drake threw a 2000s-themed party for his birthday and I feel old.

-Speaking of feeling old, it’s the 10th anniversary of Twilight. Director Catherine Hardwicke and actor Jackson Rathbone returned to the site where the vampire baseball scene was filmed.

-I really love how critics are getting behind Legends of Tomorrow. It really is a delight.

-Here’s the trailer for season two of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, which recently swept the Emmys despite no one I know watching it.

Sandra Bullock will do whatever it takes for her family to survive in Bird Box, dropping December 21 on Netflix. This looks intense — like The Quiet Place but instead of staying quiet to avoid the creatures, you have to stay blindfolded.

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

-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!
