Dear Gossips,

Yesterday, on Martin Luther King Day in America, Ava DuVernay was named Entertainer of the Year at the NAACP Image Awards in Los Angeles. Three years ago, Ava’s film, Selma, was released to critical acclaim. In his review of the film, Wesley Morris wrote in Grantland that  Read Full Intro

I won’t lie – am very much looking forward to knowing the name of this baby. I’ve already put in an advance request with Duana for her to write the post, considering she wrote the posts for North and for Saint. Full Story

This morning I woke up to my phone buzzing. I had 7 messages and 1 email – all about the same thing. My friends know me so well. They know me well enough to know that I would guffaw loudly in my bed and proceed to laugh hysterically for a full minute over the news that January Jones and former Bachelor Nick Viall are dating. Full Story

Does Jennifer Garner eat French fries? I only ask because when actresses talk about food, it’s usually about how much they love to indulge. This 2011 article about the interview eating habits of actresses is something I have gone back to many times over the years Full Story

Can I interest you in 50 seconds of joy today? Watch this clip of Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin this morning on Today. It starts when Lily gently ribs Jane about her plastic surgery (it’s more a joke about their age). The hosts giggle, but try to move on. Jane doesn’t want them to move on though. Full Story

Wendi Deng refers to herself as Wendi Murdoch on Instagram. I have always found this interesting. Because Wendi is Chinese. And in Chinese culture, we don’t take our husbands’ last names. Before you get too excited, this wasn’t an example of advance feminism on our part. The tradition is more about family respect. Full Story

Here are some photos of This Hot Bitch, Sharon Stone, at the airport. I would like to draw attention to her outfit, because I was just arguing with someone about “appropriate” travel-wear, and I feel like Stone is modeling the perfect travel outfit.

Over the weekend, Eliza Dushku shared on Facebook that she was molested by Joel Kramer, the stunt coordinator, when she was working on True Lies. She was 12. When she told an adult about what happened, she was subsequently injured on set, the implication being that this was Joel Kramer’s way of punishing her. Full Story

Over the weekend, a story about Aziz Ansari was published, in which a woman referred to as “Grace” recounted her date with Ansari, which ended in his apartment and a moment far too many women know: A round of touch-roulette where you try to decide the least awful places and ways to let this person touch you because you’re not getting out of the night without letting him touch something in some way. Full Story
