Alice Munro’s Nobel Prize last week made me think of Dorothy Parker, one of the best writers, ever, and she never wrote a novel. Dorothy wrote wonderful short stories, and poems, and essays, and movie reviews, but never a novel. And it was almost like she didn’t think she could be taken seriously because of it. Full Story

When I say “SNL controversy” what do you picture? Probably John Belushi doing coke off Chevy Chase’s butt. Maybe Eddie Murphy doing coke off Laurie Metcalf’s butt? And definitely Chris Kattan doing coke of Cheri Oteri’s butt! The point is that SNL’s scandals usually revolve around a lot coke (and some butts) and never really issues that could actually improve the quality of that show…until now. Full Story

Dame Helen Mirren was in Hong Kong last night to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Mandarin Oriental. Two deranged brothers did not try to kick her ass with an air conditioner. You think Scandal is preposterous? How about Michael Bay? And that’s real life! Click here Full Story

Scandal Season 3 Episode 3 recap The fact that Olivia Pope feels entitled to hang up on the man who runs the free world (well, probably that’s actually Cyrus) is the least ludicrous thing in this episode. Yet you watched breathless the whole time, didn’t you? What kills me, when you step away and think about it, is that even the scenario – the hostages in a near-death situation – we’ve seen this on TV a thousand, million times. Full Story

Madonna showed up at the opening of her Hard Candy gym in Berlin yesterday. She wore leather and wouldn’t let us see her hands. Am I projecting or does M seem like she’s in an extra extra good mood?

Graydon Carter and Vanity Fair are meangirling G. Full Story

OK but the volleyball isn’t what you care about. The volleyball isn’t what people are talking about. Princess Catherine of William made an official appearance today in London at the SportsAid Athlete Workshop to hang out with some athletes. She played…in wedges. It’s so Victoria Beckham, except Victoria Beckham wouldn’t be playing. Full Story

Those who don’t enjoy Wes Anderson’s films knock it for their preciousness and pretention. Sometimes, yes. But I will defend The Royal Tenenbaums every day. And how can you hate Bottle Rocket? Also, Moonrise Kingdom was one of my favourite movies of 2012. Maybe my favourite movie of 2012. Full Story
