Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Getting Divorced, Says Page Six

-Welp. According to Page Six, it’s splitsville for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. If true, I wonder why they didn’t try to slide this news under the cover of holiday madness last week?

Emma Stone confirmed what we’ve known for months: she’s expecting her first child.

-I didn’t even know there was a rumour about Zoë Kravitz dating Channing Tatum, but they’re already denying it.

-The Alexander Wang assault allegations don’t seem to be going away, despite his vehement denial and the near-total silence from the fashion industry.

-The Grammy Awards will no longer be held this month and have been postponed as COVID-19 cases surge in Los Angeles. Organizers are hoping to hold it in March, but that seems wildly optimistic.

Arnold Schwarzenegger accidentally referred to son-in-law Chris Pratt as Chris Evans on Instagram, which is a belated xmas gift to all of us.

-In a new interview, Patty Jenkins details her “internal war” with Warner Bros. over the first Wonder Woman movie. “Everybody in the industry wanted to hire me. But I felt like they wanted to hire me like a beard; they wanted me to walk around on set being a woman director, but it was their story and their vision.”

-Meanwhile, this is a very good piece on how the second Wonder Woman is supposed to be for women, but still isn’t about women.

-The Bean Dad apologized. It’s not bad, in spite of the “let themselves be triggered” nonsense.

Meghan McCain returned to The View after her mat leave, and Joy Behar did not mince words about her feelings on the return. “I did not miss you. Zero.”

-Following a day of conflicting information about the status of her health, actress Tanya Roberts has died at the age of 65. She passed away last night at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in LA.

-This Is Us’ producers are blaming covid for a scene in which a teen took a pregnancy test with what was clearly an ovulation test.

Steven Soderbergh released his annual list of every piece of pop culture he consumed in 2020, and once again I feel like a luddite.

-Mr. Bean star Rowan Atkinson was trending earlier because he weighed in on “cancel culture” in a new interview, saying “It’s important that we’re exposed to a wide spectrum of opinion, but what we have now is the digital equivalent of the medieval mob roaming the streets looking for someone to burn.” I’m raising my eyebrows more about the part where he talks about “the weight of responsibility” of playing Mr Bean.

Cardi B defended turning off “WAP” when her 2-year-old daughter enters the room. “I’m not [JoJo Siwa]! I don’t make music for kids I make music for adults.”

Maria Bakalova, the Bulgarian star of Borat 2, says she’s kept in touch with the film’s 62-year-old babysitter. “Jeanise is a true angel. I will probably always think of her as my godmother, a real hero and life coach. We had a real human connection from the very first day we met. I called her on Thanksgiving. It was my first American Thanksgiving and was also my best. I was so happy to talk to her that I started to cry. When we were shooting, it was very hard for me, because I wanted to tell her not to worry about me.”

-Rumour has it that Jodie Whittaker will be leaving Doctor Who soon.

-The Dexter revival has tapped Clancy Brown as its big bad. I just saw him in Promising Young Woman (which we all must watch and talk about because I can’t stop thinking about it.)

Jared Padalecki in Men’s Health is, um, surprising.

Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor star in Locked Down, the first romantic comedy set during the pandemic — and it looks surprisingly good? Instead of the endless Zoom calls that have plagued most quar projects, these guys are planning a diamond heist. And good news for Canadians: it drops on Crave the same day it arrives on HBO Max – next Thursday.

Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles Kick Off 2021 Together

-There’s nothing like kicking off the new year with a romantic pairing none of us saw coming. Olivia Wilde and Harry Styles are apparently dating. They were photographed hand-in-hand at his manager’s wedding over the weekend. The Daily Mail then published photos of Wilde and Styles arriving back at his home in Los Angeles with their luggage on Monday, while a source tells People they’ve been dating “for a few weeks.” Just imagine; if she hadn’t fired Shia LaBeouf from her movie and replaced him with Styles, we would have been deprived of this deliciousness!

-Also, Styles’ new video with Phoebe Waller-Bridge makes my heart full.

-Well, this is weird. TMZ is reporting that Tanya Roberts, a former Bond girl and That 70s Show star who was reported dead yesterday, is apparently alive, despite statements to the contrary from her husband and PR rep.

Zoe Kravitz and Karl Glusman have split up after 18 months of marriage.

– I don’t watch the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, but everyone seems to be super pissed by the series finale. I don’t understand this enduring trend. It’s not “fan service” to give your audience what they want at the end if that’s what your entire show has been building towards.

-I don’t believe much from Netflix’s “ratings” announcements, but according to them, Bridgerton was their fifth biggest original series launch.

-Speaking of Bridgerton, I’ve fallen down a rabbit hole of Jonathan Bailey doing Broadway tunes on Youtube. His character was a jerk in season one, but if the show follows the books, than everyone’s going to love him in season two.

-In order to play a boxer in his latest video, Justin Bieber had all of his tattoos covered up.

-Meanwhile, Bieber is distancing himself from Hillsong Church following buddy Carl Lentz termination in November for “moral failures.”

-Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness revealed he got married a few months ago.

-This is a good (though not for him) deep dive into how Ryan Murphy’s brand has fallen recently.

Blake Shelton really needs to learn how to read the room.

-Don’t expect Zac Synder to have a bright future with DC Films/HBO Max after the release of his cut of Justice League. A Warner Bros exec called it “a storytelling cul-de-sac — a street that leads nowhere.”

Larry King was hospitalized with covid, but he’s now out of the ICU.

-This is unexpected: Eddie Izzard has come to J.K. Rowlings’ defense.

-This sort of flew under the radar because of the holidays, but it’s messed up: A judge ruled that Danny Masterson and the women accusing him of sexual assault must resolve their lawsuits through Scientology arbitration. I’ve never heard of mediation for criminal charges.

-I feel bad for Vanessa Kirby, who’s award-baiting performance in Pieces of a Woman is now being overshadowed by costar Shia LaBeouf’s assault accusations.

-Here’s the new trailer for One Night In Miami, coming to Amazon Prime next week. I adored this movie.

Dominic West Defends Marriage Following Lily James Pics

-I mean, is there anything else to talk about today than what went down with Dominic West over the weekend? The Daily Mail published photos of The Affair actor (lol) in Rome canoodling with Lily James, his costar in a new BBC adaptation of The Pursuit of Love (he plays her father). The Daily Mail was quick with a followup about how West’s wife, Catherine Fitzgerald (who — let’s not forget — owns a freakin’ castle!) was shocked and devastated. However, West and Fitzgerald presented a united front this morning when they greeted the press outside their home with a handwritten note saying they’re “very much still together.” I’m not sure if they have an open relationship or they’ve worked it out or they’re trying to save face, but I am glad that their bizarre press conference made his name trend instead of the previously trending James (who was last rumoured to be dating Chris Evans).

Offset reportedly rented a billboard for Cardi B‘s birthday — and it seems to have worked. The nearly divorced couple were seen kissing and dancing at her 28th birthday party (and after-party) in Vegas.

-My god, Demi Lovato’s ex is never going to give up the spotlight, is he?

-In a powerful New York Times op-ed, Megan Thee Stallion addressed the election, sexism, police brutality, and violence against women: “We deserve to be protected… and we are entitled to our anger.”

Gloria Estefan and her daughter Emily had a tough discussion about Emily’s coming-out on Red Table Talk. Emily remembers: “The first thing you said was ‘If you tell your grandmother and she dies, her blood is on your hands.'”

Gal Gadot has been cast in the upcoming Cleopatra movie from Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins — and Twitter was quick to call it white-washing.

-Meanwhile, Gadot spoke to Vanity Fair about the backlash to her “Imagine” video at the start of the pandemic. “Sometimes, you know, you try and do a good deed and it’s just not the right good deed. I had nothing but good intentions and it came from the best place, and I just wanted to send light and love to the world.”

Zoe Kravitz looks amazing as Catwoman on the Batman set.

Jon Cryer told a great story on Twitter this weekend about how he lost his wedding ring while walking in Vancouver — and found it the next day.

Shantel VanSanten talked about how The Flash abruptly dumped her character in season 2 after she booked another series: “I don’t think it was supposed to end as quickly as it did. I don’t know if a whole lot of people know this, but I actually worked it out with my contract so I could finish the whole season and be around. But a showrunner that’s no longer on that show was very upset with me, and so he put me on a train all of a sudden, and I left…It was a bummer that somebody allowed their own personal feelings to come in the way of what was best for a story. I’m glad that person’s gone, and they’ve resolved so many of the issues on the set that were because of him.”

-Meanwhile, I thought I was finally free of all CW superhero shows save Legends, but Regina King has announced she’s developing a Black supernatural drama called Slay for the network. Just when I think I’m out…

-Tenet’s flop helped spur a mass exodus on the movie release calendar. As a result, War With Grandpa and rereleases of Star Wars the 1993 Halloween classic Hocus Pocus have been atop the box office charts in recent weeks.

-Meanwhile, as confusing as it is to hear studios release news of upcoming films when the industry is in freefall, Warner Bros just announced a Mad Max spinoff called Furiosa starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.

Sandra Bullock just signed on to a romance-action film about a romance author who discovers that a fictional city she had written about is real, with her Proposal costar Ryan Reynolds being eyed for a part. I want this!

-Netflix’s new high school drama Grand Army, which drops this weekend, is getting great reviews, with comparisons to My So-Called Life.

-Though I’m reluctant to start a new Netflix series. This is a good piece on how Netflix keeps cancelling its most interesting and ambitious shows and why this (combined with the quantity-over-quality strategy) is becoming a big a problem.

-Also, Channing Dungey is stepping down as Netflix’s VP of original programming. There’s talk that she’s a contender for the job of president of Warner Bros. TV.

-In other big industry shakeups, Disney says its ‘primary focus’ for entertainment is streaming as it announces a major reorganization.

-I’m not sure I trust the site that’s reporting that Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield have signed on for Spider-Man 3, but it’s wild if true.

Princess Diana meets the Queen in the new trailer for season 4 of The Crown.
