Dear Gossips,

If you were Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, seriously, would you want to be on Fuller House? Everyone was talking yesterday about how John Stamos put them on blast for claiming to not know about the new show when they really did know about the new show and just didn’t want to come right out and say it but, come on, as Duana wrote last week (click here for a refresher), WHY would Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who are currently finalising what they’re wearing to the MET Gala, ever revisit Michelle Tanner?

These two are practically public mutes. They hardly ever speak. When they do speak, it’s about $500 t-shirts. That’s not exactly the Kimmy Gibbler demographic. Some people are like, well, they wouldn’t be The Row and Elizabeth & James if not for Full House. I disagree. They wouldn’t be The Row and Elizabeth & James and what they are now if not for those movies, those videos. (My personal favourite was Winning London.) An entire generation grew up on those videos. That generation grew up WITH them afterwards. Lots of children play babies on television sitcoms. Few of them go on to make Sweet Valley High style straight-to-videos and become billionaires. That’s my new party idea: to marathon all those Olsen videos one night with people who appreciate the artistic genius of New York Minute.

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

Tom Brady must have lost a bet to Seth MacFarlane

Back in 2012, I quite liked Ted, Seth MacFarlane’s talking teddy bear movie starring Mark Wahlberg. It hit the right balance between MacFarlane’s raunchy sense of humor and actually having a heart under the R-rated jokes and the teddy bear gimmick. So I’m holding out hope that the latest trailer for Ted 2, which is a red band, is just a bad trailer, and not indicative of the movie as a whole, because this trailer is BAD. Full Story

Kristen Stewart’s cover alliteration

Kristen Stewart covers the June issue of UK Harper’s Bazaar. She’s wearing Chanel. It’s exquisite, this outfit, but it looks heavy. And stressful. For a photo shoot, fine. No one is comfortable on a photo shoot. But imagine bopping around in this? Can’t be relaxing. Excerpts from the article will be released later this week (and I’ll write about it then) but the exclusive promise is as follows: Kristen Stewart on Sexuality, Sexism, and her search for Serenity Easy with the alliteration there. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

I keep calling it the Mary Lindo. That’s the Lindo Wing at St Mary’s Hospital in London where Princess Catherine will give birth to Big G’s sibling. And where press and royal TwiHards have been gathered for days. It could be any time now. Which is why I was happy to get out of the country before it happened. Because apparently as soon as the child is born, every nutter from all over the kingdom pilgrims over to the capital to celebrate, clogging up an already busy city. My friend Omid hilariously clarified that, “Even the medium crazies will be coming”. I’ve interviewed a full crazy. Her entire house, wall to wall, was jammed with royal memorabilia. You know, like the plates with the Queen’s face on them? Then she built a separate add-on dedicated to all her Diana items.  Read Full Intro

Spontaneous push-ups

Zac Efron is in Georgia working on a movie called Dirty Grandpa. He was photographed on set today. In between scenes, he appears to be dropping down for a set of push-ups. I mean, good for him, you know? Maximise every minute. It can be boring, sitting around in your trailer all day, waiting for them to set up the lights and block the shots. Full Story

Jay Z took some time on the weekend to unleash #TidalFacts and he does make some salient points – at 700k subscribers in a month, it’s hardly a flop. But with the star power and hype behind it, what number would tip it to “successful”? The problem with an endeavor like this is that there’s no context. Full Story

Anne Hathaway’s Grounded, playing at the Public Theatre in New York until May 24, is receiving solid reviews. And even if critics aren’t in love with the entire production, her performance, not surprisingly, is being widely praised. As if there was any doubt. Even those of you who can’t stand her have to admit that she can act, non? Anne Hathaway has all the goods. Full Story

Robert Pattinson and FKA twigs were in Venice this weekend. They walked along the boardwalk. They went for ice cream. It was like a textbook Venice date. Is that the ring? So far, as you know, they’ve not confirmed that they’re getting married. But they’ve not denied it either. Full Story

The Royals 1.7: Dame Joan Collins shows up AT LAST

The Royals Season 1, Episode 7 recap I don’t understand how titles work on this show at all. Dame Joan Collins finally appears as Queen Helena’s mom, and her title is “Grand Duchess of Oxford”, except that doesn’t make any sense. A Grand Duchess is the head of a sovereign state, or a Russian princess. Full Story

Check out Penelope Cruz this weekend in Rome on the set of Zoolander 2. Apparently she plays a cop. Like a cop who’s a hybrid of Uma Thurman in Kill Bill and Oops Britney? Whatever. She is wearing the sh-t out of that leather jumpsuit. And her hair. One of the best heads of hair in Hollywood. Full Story

Blake Lively in The Age of Adaline

For a movie that features a protagonist who boned two members of the same family, The Age of Adaline is incredibly boring. There’s so much potential drama to fuel the story of a woman who doesn’t age, and who, it is implied, has left a string of lovers spanning a century behind her, but Adaline is hell-bent on being the least interesting version of that story, more interested in presenting the titular Adaline (Blake Lively, in her first role since 2012’s Savages) as a proper lady who has weathered the century unchanging. Full Story
