Are you watching season 2 of Big Little Lies? I enjoyed the first season but didn’t need a second season. The premiere seemed forced (like the hokey nightmares sequences). That cast can sell those characters, absolutely, I just don’t know if the storyline will support the talent. (Why don’t any of these people move? Or at the very least, switch schools?)   But that doesn’t mean BLL’s second season isn’t deserved. Full Story

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

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”.

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
