Dear Gossips, 

Between Two Ferns: The Movie just dropped on Netflix today. That’s probably what I’m doing tomorrow night. Ahead of the release of the movie, Vulture ranked all 22 episodes and I mostly agree with everything until the Top 3. To me, Brad Lee Cooper should be in top spot. The first time. This, is some of Coop’s best acting, I’m not kidding. Like I totally believe his feelings are hurt. And the end always kills me, when they finish slapping at each other and sit back on their chairs, super awkward. 

Other plans: watching Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show on Prime Video. Saving it for later today, a reward for the end of the week. Rihanna has taken the Victoria’s Secret game and elevated it beyond what they would ever be capable of conceiving. There’s really no more need for Victoria’s Secret to do this anymore unless it’s a private production for Leonardo DiCaprio and friends. Here’s the “Rihanna Revolution” on Good Morning America today. 

And here’s how the show opens, just in case you doubted. Warning… it will make you miss her on stage:


In other Rihanna news, she was in Seoul this week and God, her hair, her makeup, this white suit, she just doesn’t stop.

Another reason to freak out? OMG Rihanna and Jennie from BLACKPINK. Jennie, as anyone would, looked like she was getting her life.  

 

Have a great weekend!

Yours in gossip,

Lainey

If you love Downton Abbey, then you will love Downton Abbey: The Movie. If you do not like Downton Abbey, however, you will not like Downton Abbey: The Movie. The Downton Abbey movie is basically a two hour movie crammed with about four hours of TV show, except the show ended in a final and satisfactory way, so those four hours of TV crammed into two hours of movie is mostly a bunch of silly sh-t that contains no actual drama. Full Story

Sarah! Happy Birthday from Katie who told me about the silent retreat and how it kept us apart. Did this strengthen our relationship? I hope so. I hope it means that though the seas may separate us from time to time, we will always sail our way back. Have the best weekend!  And for Angela who misses Chewy – 16 years is a long time, and of course it was hard, so hard, for some it’s the hardest. Full Story

I think…this is a story about UFOs. That they’re real? And a celebrity discovered them? Like a retired rock star? Is that right? I’m doubting my comprehension because it’s been a f-cked up 24 hours here in Canada as a political scandal just exploded in our Prime Minister’s (black)face. Full Story

Over the last few years, I have done a complete 180 on Blake Lively. I have zero interest in her explaining the history of ice cream or whatever, and plantation weddings are gross, but as an actress, I have reversed my opinion. Blake Lively is not bad, Blake Lively is good. She’s like a female blonde Keanu Reeves—with the wrong material, she can go VERY wrong, but give her the right script, and no one does what Blake Lively does better than Blake Lively. Full Story

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are in Rome for Misha Nonoo’s wedding. Misha, as we’ve heard, is one of Meghan’s closest friends. And there will be many celebrities in attendance but not, necessarily, because of Misha’s connections, but because of who she’s marrying: Mikey Hess. Full Story
