Kim Kardiashain_Grazia-USA

Kim Kardashian covers the first issue of Grazia USA and reveals that Kanye West contracted covid around the time Tom Hanks had it. “Kanye had it way at the beginning, when nobody really knew what was going on. It was so scary and unknown. I had my four babies and no one else in the house to help. I had to go and change his sheets and help him get out of bed when he wasn’t feeling good. It was a challenge because it was so unknown. Changing his sheets with gloves and a face shield was really a scary time.”

Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling are calling BS on Jessica Alba‘s no eye contact claim on the 90210 set. The best part about her claim is that I haven’t seen this many rumours surface about Alba’s terrible behaviour since when she was shooting Dark Angel. Did she Streisand Effect herself?

Marc Maron is pushing for Netflix to wrap up Glow in a 2-hour movie and I would love this, especially since it ended in such a weird place. It feels like a lot of people are getting gun-shy about starting new Netflix series, knowing that they will likely be cancelled mid-flow.

-Is Chris Pratt actually mocking celebs who urge people to vote? In this economy??

Mandy Patinkin‘s anti-Trump video is a work of art.

-This is a very good, very bleak read on the growing crisis facing movie theaters big and small.

Sohla El-Waylly, who recently left Bon Appetit’s Test Kitchen, has now joined the Babish YouTube series.

-Riverdales’ KJ Apa and Camila Mendes seem to think that gargling with mouthwash before filming kissing scenes will protect them from covid. And…they may be right?

-Meanwhile, this Vulture article on the ambiguous covid rules on productions and the lack of industry consensus is terrifying. I’m also incredibly curious about what show the PA who said this worked on: “On my Netflix job, the lead actor got sick. Four people — two from the crew and two cast members — died from covid.”

-Netflix has launched a new production hub in Vancouver, where a lot of shows have resumed filming.

-CW stars Asha Bromfield, Candice Patton, Nafessa Williams and Vanessa Morgan joined Teen Vogue for a conversation about diversity in Hollywood. Speaking of a CW sisterhood, I’m so curious about what happened with Shethoritywhich was started by a bunch of CW actresses. Patton was very involved in the beginning but seems to have pulled back.

In any case, I love that Mbatha-Raw is promoting another movie but willing to answer so many questions about that one.

Riz Ahmed plays a drummer who’s losing his hearing in Amazon’s Sound of Metal trailer. This played a TIFF last year to strong reviews.

Duffy Reveals Tragic Reason for her Disappearance from the Spotlight

-This is harrowing. Remember Duffy? She came up around the same time as Adele and for awhile was just as big. And then she disappeared. On Instagram today she posted: “Many of you wonder what happened to me, where did I disappear to and why…The truth is, and please trust me I am ok and safe now, I was raped and drugged and held captive over some days. Of course I survived. The recovery took time.” She says she will be posting an interview in the coming weeks.

Pete Davidson just ran through his romantic relationships in a very “thank u, next” kind of way. In a YouTube interview with Charlamagne Tha God, he discussed his split from Kaia Gerber, saying “She’s very young, and I’m f*cking going through a lot and it was before I went to rehab. It’s just like, she should be having fun. She shouldn’t have to worry about some dude that just has issues and shit. She should be enjoying her work. It just wasn’t the right place or the right time at all.” He also said he’s “learned a lot from the awesome chicks that I’ve been with” and mentioned Margaret Qualley (“she will win an Oscar”), Kate Beckinsale (“f*cking legendary…all my uncles freaked out”), Ariana Grande (“I pretty much knew it was around over after [her ex Mac Miller died]. That was really horrible, and I can’t imagine what that shit is like. All I do know is that she really loved the shit out of him, and she wasn’t putting on a show or anything”) and Cazzie David (“one of the funniest people I’ve met”).

-He also hinted that his time with SNL might be coming to an end, saying “I personally think I should be done with that show because they make fun of me on it. I’m like, cold open, political punchlines. I’m like, Weekend Update jokes…I have a weird feeling in that building, where I don’t know whose team they’re playing for — if I’m the joke or I’m in on the joke.” After the interview dropped, Page Six posted a story about how he gets preferential treatment from Lorne Michaels and doesn’t contribute much in the writers’ room. Said a source: “Pete has a pretty cushy gig, to say the least,” while another added, “The cast isn’t into him. He’s just there — he doesn’t add much.”

-The interview was to promote his new Netflix special, which isn’t getting great reviews.
