Meghan Markle Chats with “Auntie Ellen”

Meghan Markle went all in on her Ellen appearance. She was the episode’s only guest and spent the hour pranking people by doing squats and drinking from a baby bottle, talking about her kids’ Halloween costumes (“Archie was a dinosaur for like 5 minutes” and Lilibet “was a little skunk like Flower from Bambi”) and using the platform to advocate for paid family leave (“As a mom of two I will do everything that I can to make sure we can implement that for people”).

Tom Holland’s GQ profile makes me kind of sad. He just sounds so tired.

Pete Davidson spent his birthday with Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner and they all wore matching outfits so that’s happening.

Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello have split. They both posted the same statement on IG stories: “We’ve decided to end our romantic relationship but our love for one another as humans is stronger than ever.” So I guess that blind about her on a plane talking about a breakup was legit.

-Rapper Young Dolph was shot and killed at a popular local cookie shop in Memphis, according to police.

-This is a great piece on Taylor Swift and why her most powerful weapon will always be how she plays with our knowledge of her past and her life as a text.

-She released the sad girl autumn version of “All Two Well” that she recorded at the Long Pond Studios. She’s smart to release all her singles before Adele drops her album tomorrow and dominates the charts.

-Here’s the trailer for season two of Emily In Paris. God, season one feels like a fever dream.

-Roku released a new trailer for Zoey’s Extraordinary Christmas.

-The Wheel of Time reviews are not great. THR calls it “dangerously close to a parody of the genre at its most formulaic,” the Washington Post says it “wildly miscalculates what made its predecessor [Game of Thrones] so watchable” and Variety says “The result is a show that may well please Jordan’s core fandom from the first but which makes for a frustrating watch for viewers who care less about whether “The Wheel of Time” outdoes “Game of Thrones” for spectacle than about whether the show they’re watching is coherent and well-crafted on its own terms.”

-This is a lovely profile on Jamie Dornan, who says he would love to play a superhero, is studying Robert Pattinson’s career, and wishes his dad could have seen Belfast.

-Is there a chance Letitia Wright will get recast in Black Panther after her alleged anti-v*x status keeps creating potential shooting delays?

-Ghostbusters Afterlife is a weird one. Critics are getting pressed by how many fan service-y elements refer to the original, but personally I thought that it had little to do with its roots beyond surface-level nods. The first Ghostbusters was a raunchy comedy about a bunch of dirtbags who end up saving the world; this one feels like an 80s Spielberg movie with a bunch of heartwarming kids. I liked it well enough; it just didn’t feel like a Ghostbuster movie.

Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon and Carrie Coon stars in the trailer for The Gilded Age, from the creator of Downton Abbey. It was originally picked up for NBC and is now airing on HBO, which is quite the change.

-Here’s a a teaser for Adam McKay’s Don’t Look Up, which Jennifer Lawrence then explained to Vanity Fair.

Lily James and Sebastian Stan‘s epic transformations are finally unveiled in Hulu’s first Pam & Tommy trailer.

Jennifer Lopez, Owen Wilson and Maluma star in the trailer for Marry Me. This looks awful but marriage of convenience is one of my favourite tropes, followed closely by a normie falling for a celeb, so *shrug*.


Billie Eilish Moves On

Billie Eilish rolling stone

Billie Eilish talked to Rolling Stone about planning to move out of her parent’s house, how she only watches TV on her phone (“I can’t go to the bathroom without watching something on my phone. I can’t brush my teeth. I can’t wash my face”) and getting over a fame-related traumatic experience (“I went through some crazy shit, and it really affected me and made me not want to go near anyone ever”). She also brought her dog to the photoshoot.

-Meanwhile, her rumoured boyfriend is apologizing for old racist and homophobic social posts.

Anthony Mackie is getting some heat on Twitter for his comments about people shipping his character with Sebastian Stan‘s in Falcon & The Winter Solider. “So many things are twisted and convoluted. There’s so many things that people latch on to with their own devices to make themselves relevant and rational…It used to be guys can be friends, we can hang out, and it was cool…You can’t do that anymore, because something as pure and beautiful as homosexuality has been exploited by people who are trying to rationalize themselves.” I agree with this thread that actors shouldn’t be required to speak on the writers’ queerbaiting — though having an answered prepared wouldn’t hurt. But I really agree with this thread about how queer audiences are desperate for representation because there’s so little of it in Hollywood, and it’s really not hard to just say “hey man, you do you.” Mark Hamill had it right when he was asked questions like this.

-Though full reviews for Black Widow are still embargoed, the first initial reactions are positive, with Florence Pugh getting lots of shout outs for her performance.

-There’s talk that Machine Gun Kelly and Megan Fox are already considering marriage.

Hugh Grant is shooting down rumours that he has a green card marriage.

-I liked H.E.R.’s profile in Variety. “H.E.R. isn’t a persona; it’s not something that I think I have to turn on. It’s me: my true self.”

-It feels like Stephen Colbert is having a really busy week trying to throw his guests a life raft and stop them from saying more — and they just won’t.

-The Friends reunion is the gift that keeps on giving. On James Corden’s show last night, he aired a clip of a “carpool karaoke” segment he filmed with the cast at the time.

Marc Maron was taking some hits on Twitter over an interview he did with William Zabka (in which he admitted he’s never seen the show, so the actor stepped in.

Meghan Markle can now add “NYT best-selling author” to her resume.

-This could become a problem with travel. Springsteen On Broadway and Jimmy Fallon’s show will not allow audience members who were vaccinated with AstraZeneca.

Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom star in this dystopian-themed short to fight voter suppression.

-Um, Nicolas Cage is in a new movie about a truffle hunter who searches for his pig after she is kidnapped. It’s called Pig. I can’t believe this is real.

-Here’s the first trailer for Apple TV+ series The Shrink Next Door, starring Will FerrellPaul Rudd, Casey Wilson and Kathryn Hahn.

Kanye West’s lawyers responded to Kim Kardashian‘s divorcing filing, agreeing with her that they should have joint custody of their four children and neither of them need spousal support.

This is a good piece on how celebrity bloggers Lainey Gossip and Perez Hilton have been reckoning with the awful stuff they wrote in the 2000s — and how they’re taking radically different paths in their apologies.

Daniel Dae Kim opened up to Vulture about his fight for fair pay on Hawaii Five-0, and whether he felt his costars were allies. “I think any time you have an ensemble of actors, everyone’s objectives are unique and individual. So it’s hard for me to collectively say whether they were allies in this. And I do know that the way things got spun by the end changed my relationships with them.”

-Thunder Force was really, really not good — but this Jodie Foster bit made me laugh.
