JoJo Siwa Comes Out

-After alluding to it earlier this week, JoJo Siwa has come out as gay with a sweet photo. Considering her brand, this is hugely, wildly brave and I hope she is being showered with love and acceptance.

-Well. Dave Chappelle got Covid hanging out with Joe Rogan, Grimes and Elon Musk during his ten-day residency at a BBQ restaurant during a pandemic.

-The first few new episodes of SNL this year will feature first-time hosts John Krasinki, Regina King, and…wait for it… Dan Levy!

Casey Affleck is promoting Our Friend (a movie I really liked, despite his presence) and that means he’s facing lots of awkward questions about his brother Ben‘s relationship status.

-I really adored Sarah Jessica Parker’s Grub Street column, especially when she describes her family meals (so many beans!) and talks about missing restaurants. This part hit me hard: “To me, being on the subway with a book, heading toward a meal, I honestly can’t think of anything better…It’s a vacation — you are literally transported — and I miss it so much it hurts.”

Meghan McCain was trending again for saying some more stupid stuff on The View, but I was too distracted by her contouring to focus.

Jane Krakowski’s publicist had a field day when denying the actress is dating the MyPillow CEO: “She is, however, in full fledged fantasy relationships with Brad Pitt, Rege-Jean Page and Kermit the Frog and welcomes any and all coverage on those.”

-This Barbara Kay column on how text messages “exonerate” Jessica Mulroney is bizarre. They didn’t even verify the texts? And Mulroney admits to deleting a message? And the whole thing starts with a long, rambling screed against cancel culture? What is happening?!

-I kind of lost myself a little bit in this weirdly engrossing oral history of the making of High School Musical.

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas Split

Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas have split up . It’s a holiday in the US, which makes it a good day to try to slip this news under the radar. Still, the People quotes from sources are pretty supportive of both sides, and yet she’s been officially positioned as the dumper and he’s the dumpee. I wonder how they worked that out.

Armie Hammer has apologized after his finsta leaked and it included a post that showed an unidentified woman in lingerie on her hands and knees on a hotel bed, whom he referred to as ‘Miss Cayman.’ He issued a statement to the Cayman Compass: “I would like to clarify that the person in my video, which was stolen from my private Instagram, is not Miss Cayman.” First of all, if he posted it to Instagram it’s not exactly “stolen.” Secondly, *this* is what he feels the need to apologize about?! I gotta hope he’s just getting warmed up.

-This is a good take on how the cannibalism accusations are the least disturbing in this saga. His last girlfriend said she checked herself into a 30-day partial hospitalization program designed to treat PTSD and trauma following their 2-month relationship last year. I also liked this thread about how damaging it is for him to say he prefers rough sex but stopped wanting it with his wife because that’s the mother of his children and he grew to respect her too much.

-He was also reportedly fantasizing about sex during BLM protests, so it just gets better and better.

Michael B. Jordan and Lori Harvey look like they’re having a blast on vacation. Are paps just hanging out in St. Barts or….?

Gwyneth Paltrow‘s ‘vagina’ candle reportedly exploded in a UK woman’s home, which was a gift for headline writers today.

Kate Winslet said she learned to free dive and breath-hold for her role in Avatar: “We might be down for between three and a half and four minutes on any take. But that’s not my longest breath-hold. My longest was seven minutes and 14 seconds. Absolute truth.”

Kylie Jenner tried to show off her massive walk-in shower and all anyone could focus on was her terrible water pressure.

-The guy who played Christopher on Girlmore Girls denied rumours that he attended the Capitol insurrection — but he seemed to support it.

Matthew McConaughey talked cancel culture with Jordan Peterson. Jordan Freakin’ Peterson?!? That’s a bridge too far for me.

Bow Wow played a packed indoor concert in Houston. Can you imagine risking your life…for Bow Wow?!?

-I like these predictions about how TV may soon change. Moving late-night shows to prime time seems like a no-brainer.

-Here’s the trailer for the new series The Equalizer, premiering after the Super Bowl. I’m not really into CBS shows, but I *am* into watching Queen Latifah being an ass-kicking vigilante.

Nicolas Cage fights killer animatronics in the first trailer for Willy’s Wonderland.

Chrissy Teigen Talks Healing

-After tweeting about her “grief depression hole” earlier this week, Chrissy Teigen reflected on the “brutal, exhausting, sad, physically challenging, mentally painful bitches of a couple months” since the loss of her baby in a new Instagram post, saying she’s starting to feel better: “I already see the leaves as orange instead of grey, realized the sky is indeed blue and not black and horn honks on my forced morning walks only bring me to my knees half the time.”
