Dear Gossips,

Holy sh-t, that Olympic free dance competition last night. But this is what you want when the gold is on the line, right? You want everyone to f-cking bring it. There is nothing I’m better at than choking in the moment, especially when it requires physical performance.  Read Full Intro

Last week, when Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux announced their separation, the tabloids dug up some year-old photos of Justin with his old friend Naomi Watts, suggesting that Naomi may have had something to do with the breakup.  Naomi and Liev Schreiber announced their split in September 2016, shortly after Brange. Full Story

What Else?

Lionel Richie has three children. Which mean he’s been through the teens twice and has almost completed his third lap as Sofia Richie is 19 years old. So he knows the tricks, presumably. Or maybe he’s forgotten. Because when a 19 year old in love hears her DAD call her relationship “a phase”, the first thing through her mind is going to be, “OMG DAD! You don’t know anything!

Gossip doesn’t work without timing. And since the Brange-Aniston Triangle became one of the biggest stories of the modern Hollywood gossip era, the timing has always been… well… conveniently coincidental. Or conspiratorial. One would always show up when the other was in the news. Like clockwork. Full Story

I’m curious about what this week’s US tabloids will look like. You’ll recall, when I wrote about Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux’s breakup timeline last week, announcing their separation on a Thursday gave the “gossip industry”, and all the gossip magazines, enough time to get it into their new issues, maybe even on the front covers, even though it’s a long weekend in America. Full Story

Have you watched Fergie’s performance of The Star-Spangled Banner at the NBA All-Star game yet? It will take you through a range of emotions: discomfort, bewilderment, distress, amusement. But most of all, fontrum. Unbearable fontrum. Meanwhile back in the states. Full Story

Black Panther is the biggest story in Hollywood coming out of the weekend. The numbers have already gone up from when I logged on this morning.

So of course we’re talking about Black Panther this week on Show Your Work. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence has always been good for a one-liner. She’s quick-witted and unfiltered. Those two things have always been a part of a Jennifer Lawrence press tour. So, when J.Law started promoting Red Sparrow, I knew we’d be in for a few headline-grabbing cracks. Let’s start with Jennifer inserting herself into the Taylor Swift/Bad Blood vortex. Full Story
