Kathy Griffin was on a morning show to promote her new movie and that’s usually a pretty soft environment, but she can roll with any crowd and she knew exactly what weatherman Mark was trying. Of course there are 58-year-old comedians that are working, and if given the chance I’m sure he would have pulled Seinfeld’s name out of his ass. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have already blended their families, so blending their brands is of course the next logical step. They started with a line of sunglasses (alongside Quay) and have now moved on to partnering with a company that creates frozen meals, available at Walmart.

It’s kind of amazing The Rock hasn’t written (or “written”) his biography yet. His story is perfect for it, but maybe he’s waiting until he launches a political career? Curious to see if he endorses anyone for 2020.          Full Story

She means the video game Fortnite, not the British term for two-weeks time. And the former is impossible to explain. But she also said at one time she was a gamer?  What’s fortnight — Lady Gaga (@ladygaga) October 15, 2019 Full Story

The biggest story in social media today is Jennifer Aniston joining Instagram, which Lainey wrote about here. Jen was one of the biggest holdouts and as Lainey mentioned, there’s now a short list of A-listers who don’t partake: Brad, Angelina, George, Sandra, Keanu. Full Story

Succession is our best boy, but it’s also a revolting little worm, a Tomlette (made by breaking a few Greggs), and French baguette upside the head. There is no doubt that Succession is our collective Game of Thrones rebound – just as that show was falling apart, Succession was there to pick up the pieces of slow-burn storytelling, GIF-able reaction shots and tyrannical empire building. Full Story
