Dear Gossips,

This is what surprised me yesterday: Robyn Crawford has written a book about her time with Whitney Houston. A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston is due out in the fall. If you followed Whitney’s life and career, you now who Robyn is – in that you don’t really know that much about Robyn.  Read Full Intro

By now you’ve watched Homecoming on Netflix, right? And if you didn’t catch the livestream last year, now you know. Well, we all knew. But that’s what Beyoncé does – she lets you think you know, and then she lets you know that you didn’t actually know sh-t because she’s the only one who knows. Full Story

Many male comedians have been lamenting that they have been stifled by “PC culture” and that they can’t make jokes anymore because the social justice warriors are out to get them. This weekend I caught up on Veep and off the top of my head, they touched on mass shootings, abortion, the #MeToo movement, white feminism, the use of the r- and n-words, voter suppression – and the show is still as funny as it is uncomfortable. Full Story

By now you’ve heard about Daisy Jones & The Six,  the sixth book from author Taylor Jenkins Reid, either because of its six weeks and counting on the NYT bestseller list, or because it’s currently being adapted into an Amazon limited series by Reese Witherspoon, or because yes, this book was part of the zeitgeist that united me with the haircut I was always meant to have. Full Story

Avengers: Endgame opens in two days and I CAN’T WAIT TO TALK ABOUT IT. Infinity War was not a movie I felt compelled to discuss after the fact, but oh boy are we going to be talking about Endgame. One reason to talk about it is that this is the end of an era. Sure, Marvel will continue making movies (forever, if they have their way), and there will be another Avengers movie, at some point. Full Story

Have you noticed that while everyone on Game of Thrones calls Daenerys “Your Grace” except for f-cking Jorah Mormont who’s still going around calling her “Khaleesi”? (Even Jon Snow, in public, calls her “Your Grace”.) I don’t know the official reason for it but my read is that Jorah has adopted it as a term of endearment, that perv, I hate him so much and I’m so mad at Sam for giving him that sword because it probably means he’ll survive the Battle of Winterfell. Full Story

Maria mentions Derek Blasberg often in her Celebrity Social Media posts. He’s the Truman Capote of our time – only there’s no way he’ll sabotage his celebrity friendships with a barely-veiled story outing all their secrets. Derek celebrated his birthday a couple of days ago. And Gwyneth Paltrow and Dakota Johnson gifted him with the first photo of them together:           Full Story

If you’ve ever been to Hong Kong and Japan, you’re probably familiar with the fast food culture. Like, you know how you have to be pretty desperate to go near the “hot food” section at the 7-Eleven? In Hong Kong though? The hot food, the packaged food, all the f-cking food is delicious at the 7-Eleven. Full Story
