They’re making an Archie TV show.
Deadline reports that Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) is involved and that if all goes to plan, the show will be called Riverdale and it will air on FOX.
I know my reaction is supposed to be all, “F-ck this, how DARE they mess with Archie” but… I think I might be into it. Apparently Riverdale will be about small town life, the darkness underneath it, and, of course, high school love triangles and rivalries. Archie, Veronica, Betty, Reggie, Jughead, and Josie and the Pussycats are all expected. It’s Gossip Girl, Heathers, and Twin Peaks all at the same time. Possibly.
What’s the problem???
Fine. You hate the idea. Or maybe you don’t give a sh-t. Maybe you weren’t into Archie Comics the way I was when I was a kid – and still now. Now I take Archie to the bathroom and, frankly, that’s an honour. Everybody knows bathroom reading is carefully curated.
So let me know. Would you watch Archie on television? Are you angry that Archie is coming to television? And also, one of the most important questions in pop culture, the question that well preceded Jen or Angelina…
Are you Betty or Veronica?
Have a great weekend!

Princess Catherine stepped out tonight in London to attend the Action on Addiction Autumn Gala. It’s her third official appearance of the week since announcing her second pregnancy and recovering enough from HG (please don’t make me spell it). So they’re putting her back into the rotation quickly and with some intensity. Full Story
It’s been a while since I posted about Lupita. There haven’t been many new pictures. Look! New pictures! Lupita was in London last night at the opening of the Bally’s flagship. Of course, the entire look was on point. The coat over the shoulders. But then when she took it off, the green belt, and, always… The HAIR. Full Story

Joshua Jackson and Taylor Kitsch were at the GQ Gentleman’s Ball in New York last night. I’m not wrong in saying that you’re into the Pacey+Riggins combination, right? I’m not the only one, right? Or is it because both have Vancouver roots and so do I? Whatever. I’m forcing you to look at it even if you don’t care. Full Story
Hot Harry went out for dinner in London last night. He looked like he was in a great mood when he was leaving. Very relaxed. Thought you might want to see who he was with. Friends. The paps were able to get a few shots of some of them. And because we’re all nosy gossips, I thought you might want to see some of those shots. Full Story
Jennifer Lawrence and a friend went to the movies yesterday. Last night she was photographed at dinner, also with girlfriends. And it was also reported that she put down $7 million for a new home in LA. Over 5,000 sq feet with a pool, a gym, a big ass gourmet kitchen, and a Hamptons vibe. So, like, totally Gwyneth-approved.

The trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron wasn’t supposed to debut until Tuesday during an episode of Agents of SHIELD, but it leaked online yesterday, no doubt thanks to Hydra. And since fighting the internet is pointless, Marvel went ahead and threw it up on YouTube for all of us to enjoy. Full Story
Gwyneth Paltrow made a guest appearance on Lisa Kudrow’s Web Therapy. A short clip from it is the first video attached below. Her character’s name is Maya Ganesh. She does yoga and meditates and owns a company called Golden Circles. And Lisa/Fiona’s all like, what the f-ck do you need therapy for? Your life is perfect. Full Story
Brad Pitt really wants you to see Fury. The small details are what get me initially. Like how they Scotch tape the microphones on this show. It’s a slow build. The first two minutes aren’t all that exciting. But then. Zach Galifianakis goes for it. I mean, sure, it’s not hard to go for it when both of you are in on it. Full Story
For Lisa in Chicago who is hoping for the best for Flynn – a home where he can thrive and be loved. By request, here’s Stevie Y. Full Story
It’s Serial day.
Have you been good? I’ve been SO good. I don’t google anything about Serial. Never. Because for me, as I mentioned last week, it has to be from Sarah Koenig. All of it has to be from Sarah Koenig.
And, just like last week, I can’t listen until much later tonight even though waiting for episode 5, Route Talk, after Inconsistencies, has been the most challenging since it all started. Inconsistencies, and sketchy Jay, really took it to the next level.
WHY WOULD YOU SHOW SOMEONE A BODY IN THE PARKING LOT OF A BEST BUY???
Duana, Lorella, and I must have been on text from Toronto to London, England for the better part of 3 hours the other day yelling back and forth at each other about Jen f-cking Pusateri (which is how Duana likes to refer to her). Read Full Intro

Chris Evans and Minka Kelly have dated twice. And broken up twice. About a year ago the last time. Pop Sugar just posted new photos of them on a taco run together. Tacos? With tacos, you’re either just friends, like JUUUUUST friends, or, you know, you’re that comfortable being MORE than friends. Full Story
