PBS has decided to suspend the third season of Finding Your Roots as the result of an internal investigation… Whatever. Basically PBS has suspended the third season of Finding Your Roots because of Ben Affleck. You’ll recall, once he learned that some of his ancestors were slave owners, Ben asked the show to censor their findings. Full Story

Jennifer Lawrence was back in New York yesterday after spending the weekend in LA. Here she is out for dinner last night. Without the hot bodyguard you’ve been used to seeing. This new bodyguard though… Also hot. Maybe even hotter? Is that why she’s in such a good mood? Or was it the wine? As you can see, Jennifer, who hasn’t been all that friendly for the paps recently, decided to give them some really great shots – chopsticks in her mouth, mock model strutting out of the car, big fake smile… It’s another way of saying f-ck you, obviously, but are you curious at all about the timing? Yesterday everyone was looking at those photos Full Story

It’s a good day already. New Idris Elba photos! He was at LAX yesterday. And while I know I don’t need to give you any more information than that because you’ll just be looking at the photos anyway, there’s more. He’s heading to Glastonbury so we should get some new shots of him there. Full Story

Channing Tatum covers the new issue of PEOPLE.
Sexy, Sweet, Stripperific!
That’s how the online headline reads. And then he goes on to talk about how much his wife and daughter mean to him; he also shares that his proudest moment in life was watching Jenna Dewan give birth and that the first thing he does every morning when he wakes up is check on his baby. Isn’t that so sexy, sweet, and stripperific?!?!
In the top corner…The Bachelorette.
I don’t watch this show, not one episode. But I do know that everyone’s losing their sh-t this week because she slept with one of the men. And is being slut-shamed for it. The quote that’s used for the inset is “Maybe I went too far”. Because she’s expected to apologise for being on a show about dating and having sex with one or maybe more of the men she’s supposed to, maybe, begin a serious relationship with.
The juxtaposition is glorious, non?

My friend Lorella has this weird phobia about dressing the same. Like if we agree to meet somewhere, and she shows up in a black tee and jeans and I show up in a similar black tee and jeans (which is standard wardrobe for a lot of people), she’ll have a meltdown and might not be able to function.
