Dear Gossips,

Let’s begin the week with some no-news: Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were not on holiday together in the south of France. Coop was seen at lunch with Bono and some other friends in Provence the other day. The paps got shots of them, joined by a person wearing sunglasses and blonde hair and people started freaking out thinking it was Gaga.  Read Full Intro

I swell when I fly, no matter where I’m flying to. My hands get so big I can’t take my rings off. My ankles are the worst.

I know I’m really late to this party, but if you haven’t been watching this season of Are You the One?, you are seriously missing out on the best reality TV right now. It’s been a hot minute since both Love Island UK and Love Island USA finished, so like me, you’re probably looking for something else to whet your trashy dating show appetite. Full Story

I mean, there’s long-awaited, and then there’s so long-awaited that you almost think you dreamed it up as a concept. I assume the latter is how the ten people still waiting on George RR Martin to finish the Game Of Thrones book series feel.    I was getting close with The Morning Show, the Apple TV+ production by way of Hello Sunshine, which had been announced in 2017. Full Story

Taiki Waititi and Ryan Gosling were seen out for lunch together this weekend. You can imagine the reaction, even though they were apparently joined by other friends. They’re both internet boyfriends. They’re also both popular with nerds – Taika via his association with the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Ryan because of Blade Runner most recently and, in general, he’s an actor who’s accumulated cool points across several demographics. Full Story

Last Saturday morning, August 10, 2019, the number one news story around the world was the death of Jeffrey Epstein, supposedly by suicide. The next day, Prince Andrew joined his mother, Queen Elizabeth, at church in Scotland, both of them with big smiles on their faces.

Dear Gossips,
