The incident between Puffy, his son’s football coach, Sal Alosi, and a kettlebell? It’s over now. The LA County DA will not prosecute. They’ve sent the case over to the LA City Attorney for a misdemeanor but that’s not expected to go forward either. Not surprisingly, Diddy has declared this a victory for himself. Full Story

Wet Hot American Summer is a modern comedy classic, and by the rules of contemporary cinema, since it’s fourteen years old, it’s old enough for nostalgia. And you know what nostalgia means—it’s time for a sequel/remake/reboot! Or rather, it’s time for a prequel TV show premiering on Netflix on July 31, titled Wet Hot American Summer: The First Day of Camp. Full Story

Multiple outlets are reporting that Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner are currently in the Bahamas with their children. They went as soon as the kids were out of school, making sure to be undercover when they made the announcement that they’re divorcing. Gwyneth and Chris Martin, you’ll recall, did this too when they put up that post on GOOP that they were consciously uncoupling. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

US Weekly gave Canadians two gifts yesterday for Canada Day. We’ll get to Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch later. Let’s start with Mimi. Always Mimi. It’s 25 Things You Didn’t Know About Me, the Mimi Edition. Here are my favourites:

2. I have an extreme aversion to overhead lighting. In my opinion, elevator lighting is toxic!

No one knows more about lighting than Mimi. This is a fact.

10. I dislocated my shoulder two years ago, and it was the worst pain I’ve ever experienced. I had to wear a glove for a while because it affected my hand as well. Thanks to physical therapy, I’m finally glove-free!

How is this a new thing? WE KNOW. EVERYONE KNOWS!!!

21. I started beauty school in the 11th grade, and a year later I was officially a beauty school dropout.  Read Full Intro

You come and go, you come and go

It’s #ThrowbackThursday. So on The Today Show today they gave us the 80s. Boy George and Culture Club. Karma Chameleon. You know what? He sounds good, right? Or am I too nostalgic? I like the raspy quality to it. Whenever I watch blasts from the past like this, I always say to myself, oh my god, they haven’t changed at all! And then I stupidly look up the old YouTube video which results in an Oh. Full Story

Well this is great timing, isn’t it? It was confirmed yesterday that Batman vs Superman will be at Comic-Con and that Ben Affleck, despite the fact that he just announced his divorce, will make an appearance though it’s been stressed that there will be no personal questions. Of course not. Full Story

Have you watched it yet? If you have time, don’t just get to the Eminem bits. If you have time, put in the entire 40 minutes. I saw it last night before falling asleep, all jacked up from the fireworks that we set off in our backyard for Canada Day, intending to just focus on the Eminem part, so maybe I was just in an extra good mood but the entire episode of Stephen Colbert’s Only In Monroe is delight, so wonderfully absurd and random and better, to me anyway, than only just the good parts of the Ted movies spliced together. Full Story

In 2013, I quite enjoyed covering the Alec Baldwin beat. He was his own worst public enemy and good for gossip. He was going to quit show business, quit New York and quit social media. He was constantly freaking out on the paparazzi, leading to a cycle of goading and fighting and fighting and goading. Full Story
