Dear Gossips,

By now, probably, you’ve heard of or participated in the #10YearChallenge. And by now you may have heard of or participated in an angsty debate about how the #10YearChallenge is basically just a reason to show off how much better people look now than then.  Read Full Intro

Yesterday, Cardi B posted a video about how she was driving around with her pants down because they were too tight. The video is hilarious, in all its expletive filled, tell-it-like-it-is glory that has come to define Cardi herself – NSFW language if you haven’t seen it already:           Full Story

Yesterday, we looked back at M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable, the film that was supposed to spawn a sequel but didn’t because no one liked it when it came out. But over time, even as Shyamalan’s reputation as a filmmaker nose-dived, Unbreakable rose in estimation and cult status, until finally he was able to finally make that Unbreakable sequel—sort of. Full Story

Last night Lainey sent me this post by Devany Amber Wolfe, whose tarot cards were sold by Goop shop (you can find her product here); Devany says she was continually f-cked over in the process.

From the moment it was announced, it was a magnet for the worst behavior on the internet, and it was the target of ratings-tanking and downvote campaigns—the kind of toxic fan behavior we’re used to seeing around comic book movies but exploded all over Ghostbusters because it “ruined childhoods Full Story
