Earlier this morning, after we’d wrapped the Show Your Work podcast, #BeyoncéHomecoming special episode, Duana, Kathleen, and I were still high off of what we’d just watched and talked about and Kathleen kept saying, “What a time to be alive”. Duana and I kind of giggled – but it’s not like we disagreed. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

My favourite book of 2019 (so far) was released in Canada and the US today. I wonder if you’ll feel the way I did when I read it:  I’m only 75 pages in but I get it now why people are so into this book and they can’t keep it in stock in the UK.  Read Full Intro

As Sarah just wrote, Apple brought out the stars yesterday at its big TV presentation. Apple TV+ will be launched this fall, which is the old-school television model, and probably its most highly anticipated series is The Morning Show, produced by and starring Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston, alongside Steve Carell, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Billy Crudup, and more, inspired by Brian Stelter’s Top of the Morning, a book we reference a LOT on the Show Your Work podcast. Full Story

I came back to work on Monday and practically everyone in the office is either “eating clean” or doing a “dry January” or substituting everything with cauliflower or doing Peloton. It’s January. It happens every January. We go bonkers in December with the parties and the holiday gatherings and suddenly it’s the new year and you feel like sh-t. Full Story

Almost there. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have just completed their second-to-last day of events on their first overseas tour. They visited the Northshore Riding Club where they competed against each other in a “wellie wang” (tossing rainboots), and planted a tree for the Queens Canopy, and met with Pillars, an organisation working with children of prisoners, and there was a walkabout, and then a reception at the Auckland Museum War Memorial. Full Story

Busy Philipps’s book, This Will Only Hurt a Little, came out yesterday. I can’t wait to read it this weekend. And I was trying to avoid reading the excerpts but some of these are so good that it’s impossible to look away. This is a gossipy book because Busy is a gossipy person – a redundant statement since we all gossip and they, celebrities, gossip more than they admit to, but that’s also what we love about Busy: she’s never pretended to be above it and when given the opportunity, she will f-cking serve it. Full Story
