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.  Read Full Intro

In a pink ride. In a tricked out dress. And all kinds of curves. That, um, don’t match the curves on the official billboard. The billboard is how Mimi sees herself. It’s like seeing Mimi through Mimi’s eyes. Fascinating. Come on. If this isn’t getting you through your sh-tty Tuesday, my question to you is how you define Happiness. Full Story

I thought about titling this post “RDJ: the backlash?” but I’m not sure if this qualifies as a full-on backlash. I mean, it’s been a week, not even. And if you compare how RDJ’s been treated, compared to say, Anne Hathaway, it’s hardly a f-cking backlash. There is, however, a change in tone in coverage. Full Story

There’s a piece up today at The Daily Beast about Black Widow and the “problem” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that she—a strong, capable character in her own right—keeps being used in service of the male heroes. I don’t disagree that there is a problem in the MCU, but it isn’t specifically with Natasha Romanov. Full Story

Sarah & Michael: still together

You thought they broke up, right? So did I. Because she was giving major sad face on Twitter around New Year’s and when you’re supposed to be in a relationship at New Year’s but you’re posting lonely messages just before New Year’s and right after, the reason is often: love sucks. Full Story

My final blog post yesterday was about Zac Efron on the set of his new movie, doing push-ups. No big deal. Just a guy who drops down and gives you 10, spontaneously, whatever. Check him out today, walking to set, and f-ck, he didn’t have time to close his jacket because he’s so focused on getting in character, getting into position. Full Story

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

If you were a Disney/Marvel publicist, last week probably wasn’t great. Jeremy Renner and Chris Evans were sexist (click here for a refresher). Robert Downey Jr walked out of an interview (click here Full Story
