-After weeks of speculation, Wendy Williams filed for divorce from her husband of 20 years amid rumours he had a baby with his mistress.

-This is a big deal. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are breaking from tradition and avoiding the dog and pony show outside the hospital after welcoming their kid. Instead the palace says they have “taken a personal decision to keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private” and that “look forward to sharing the exciting news with everyone once they have had an opportunity to celebrate privately as a new family.”

-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.

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.

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.

Tina Fey’s Sheetcaking Skit Stirs Controversy

Tina Fey appeared on the Weekend Update special last night and urged people to ignore the neo-Nazis, stay safe inside and eat some sheetcake. The reactions to it were swift and judge-y. Personally I didn’t love it either, but then again I tend to sideeye some of her race-based comedy bits to begin with. I usually LOVE Fey (I’ve re-read Bossypants so many times I can quote parts of it), but there has definitely been things she’s done on Kimmy Schmidt or Whisky Tango Foxtrot that aren’t great. So I understand why people are arguing that the suggestion from a white woman to ignore neo-nazis is kind of what got us into this mess in the first place. On the other hand, a lot of people think she was gently winking and mocking her own message (with the sheetcake being a spin on “let them eat cake”). It’s entirely possible, but maybe now is not the week for subtle, easily misinterpreted comedy?

Taylor Swift just went dark on social media, leading to speculation that she’s about to make a big announcement (a new album, maybe?). She wiped all profile pics from her Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram accounts, and she’s no longer following anyone on Twitter.

-I’ve listened to Justin Bieber’s new song four times today. I’m not proud.

-Speaking of ladies making bank, Emma Stone is 2017’s highest-paid actress, according to Forbes. Next in line  are Jennifer Aniston, who pulled in $25.5 million, and Jennifer Lawrence, who earned $24 million.

-Luke Cage explains Danny Rand’s white privilege to him in this scene in The Defenders and it’s amazing. Here’s the backstory.

-Meanwhile, the reviews of The Defenders are mixed at best. THR likes it, but Vulture calls it “a grim slog” and the NYT says it’s “less than the sum of its superheroes.”

James Corden started his show with an emotional monologue about the Barcelona attack.

-Your internet boyfriend Idris Elba is on crutches. Who wants to volunteer to play nurse? Ok fine, I’ll do it!

-I gave up on Transparent a while ago but somehow came across this clip today of Judith Light singing “Hand In My Pocket” and ended up bawling at my desk. So, that happened.
