Joe Rogan Gets Covid, Takes Horse Dewormer

Joe Rogan says he’s tested positive for covid and he’s treating himself with horse dewormer. Makes sense cause he acts like an animal. (No really though, don’t do this.) If he comes out and says this cured him — it won’t — we’re in trouble.

-This is a great profile of Tony Leung in GQ. He speaks about his coming villain period, and checking into hotels with just a book.

-There’s talk that Leung is SO good in Shang Chi, it’s almost cruel to put Simu Liu up against him.

-Following his latest custody case loss, Brad Pitt has petitioned the court for a review.

-Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Gregg Leakes, husband to NeNe, has passed away at 66 after a battle with cancer.

-Another day, another report that Kanye West is hoping to rekindle his romance with Kim Kardashian. She wouldn’t want that though, right? RIGHT?!

Archie Panjabi is finally starting to open up about that green-screened bar scene with Julianna Margulies on The Good Wife. She doesn’t say much (“I know we had drinks at the bar…The fact that you have people interested in the show and those characters, and they’re so invested in it, you know, it’s just a testament to how great that show was”) but the fact that she’s talking about it at all is a good sign. Has an NDA expired or something? Give us the tell-all!

Tom Holland wished Zendaya a happy birthday on Insta with this sweet photo of them.

-I have seen so many tweets this week about James Marsden deserving James Corden‘s movie musical career, and yes! (I also find it weird that after so many rumours about him, the thing that made people really seem to turn against Corden was the traffic flash mob for Cinderella.)

-Impeachment: American Crime Story is getting very mixed reviews, though everyone seems to love Beanie Feldstein as Monica Lewinsky.

-Rough day for Tom Cruise. Both Top Gun: Maverick and  Mission Impossible 7 are being delayed again.

Paul Schrader says he was kicked out of Paul Dano’s Zoom poker club: “I got thrown out. I joined another and got thrown out of it too. It all has to do with political correctness. I never met these people, they’re images on screen. I said something that someone took offence to.”

-From Lainey’s site: “What’s interesting about Stephen [Amell] is I live in Vancouver and know a few people that worked on Arrow. I was not surprised by the airplane story.” Yup.

-CBS is overhauling the cast and premise of B Positive ahead of season 2. It’s not the first time Chuck Lorre has had to do this.

Freida Pinto is rattled by a home invasion in the Intrusion trailer.

 

Selena Gomez Covers Elle

selena gomez elle cover

-In her new Elle cover story, Selena Gomez opens up about mental illness, lupus, and letting go of social media. I’m very intrigued by her new Hulu show Only Murders in the Building, in which she stars alongside Steve Martin and Martin Short. The reviews are good.

-Also, Hailey Baldwin (who is married to Gomez’s ex Justin Bieber) liked a post about the cover. I appreciate that she knew that would make headlines.

Kanye West has filed to legally change his full name to Ye.

Megan Thee Stallion has reportedly filed legal documents  alleging that her label is blocking the release of new music from her, particularly a remix of BTS‘ global hit “Butter.”

-No surprise here: Disney is hoping to resolve its issues with Scarlett Johansson in private. Disney’s lawyers filed a motion to put the dispute over Black Widow’s profits in private arbitration rather than have a public trial.

-Amid all the hand-wringing about the quality of season 2 of Ted Lasso, this is the most valid complaint I’ve seen: Apple’s weekly rollout is hurting it. (Also, here’s yet another critic alluding to the fact that the season is about to kick into a higher gear…)

-The world is morning Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, who passed away at 80.

-Scheduling conflicts may keep Mayim Bialik from hosting Jeopardy full-time, but she has expressed an interest in the position if she is able to make it work. Of course she has.

-I’m surprised that it’s taken this long for some of her questionable momfluencer advice to surface again.

-I’m very glad to see Brandon Routh leading a new TV show after how it sounds like he was treated on Legends of Tomorrow, and a Netflix series about Magic: The Gathering sounds perfect for him.

-In her second day of testimony, the woman accused R. Kelly of forcing her to have sex with his other girlfriends and another male, and testified that he made her lie to Gayle King.

Jessica Chastain says she spent 4 to 7 hours a day in the makeup chair for The Eyes of Tammy Faye. “I think for sure I’ve done some permanent damage to my skin on this.”

-If Harry Styles launches a nail polish line I will buy every damn shade.

-Buffy alum Nicholas Brendon is in the new again. He was arrested last week and charged with felony prescription fraud.

-This is a great thread of reviews from Asian critics of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

-Venom: Let There Be Carnage, which was originally supposed to be released in Oct 2020, will likely be delayed again.

Dan Stevens plays a robot in the trailer for the German sci-fi romcom I’m Your Man. Ohhhh, this might be one of my TIFF picks.

-Here’s the very good trailer for Yellowjackets, a new Showtime drama series about a team of talented high school girls soccer players who become the survivors of a plane crash deep in the remote northern wilderness, starring Christina Ricci, Juliette Lewis and Melanie Lynskey.

Margaret Qualley is a single mother fighting for survival in the trailer for Netflix’s Maid. (Her real-life mom Andie MacDowell plays her on-screen mom in the series.)

-Netflix just announced a huge new slate of movies dropping over the next few months. (I’m especially excited for Cowboy Bepop based on the magnificent first photos.)

Melissa McCarthy and Chris O’Dowd play a couple dealing with the loss of a baby who meet ex-shrink Kevin Kline in trailer for The Starling, on Netflix September 24.

-The Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer leaked over the weekend, but it officially debuted at CinemaCon. I’m not as interested in a story about the multi-verse (as someone who always got annoyed by it when the CW superhero shows messed around with alt versions of characters) and I’d prefer if Peter Parker was still fighting a neighborhood badguy like Michael Keaton in Homecoming, but Tom Holland and Zendaya own me, so it’s all good.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani Wed

-It’s finally happened: Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani got married on Saturday in a small ceremony at his ranch.

-The biggest news to hit before the weekend was Zendaya and Tom Holland photographed kissing in a car. Part of me thinks the is a PR move (the new Spider-Man trailer is expected to drop any day now). A bigger part of me is too squealy over these photos to care.

Ronan Farrow and Jia Tolentino released their meticulously reported article on Britney Sprears’ conservatorship this weekend. Not a lot of huge shockers (beyond the fact that she called 911 the night before her testimony last month), but it’s a very good view into how some of those around her who initially acted with good intentions are horrified by how much it’s spiraled out of control.

-Also, Britney Spears is accusing the paparazzi of Photoshopping her to look heavier than she actually is for years.

Pete Davidson and Bridgerton’s Phoebe Dynevor made their public debut as a couple at Wimbledon.

-Cannes is starting — and those attending have to spit a lot into small tubes.

-Blade star Stephen Dorff blasted the Marvel films and said he was “embarrassed” for Scarlett Johansson. “It looks like garbage to me. It looks like a bad video game. I’m embarrassed for those people. I’m embarrassed for Scarlett! I’m sure she got paid five, seven million bucks, but I’m embarrassed for her.” Oh yeah, she’s clearly the embarrassing one here…

-Meanwhile, here’s the latest Black Widow teaser.
