Cody Simpson won The Masked Singer Australia and Lindsay Lohan said she guessed correctly. (Is that true? Can I get a confirmation on that from someone who watched the show?)

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 certainly mass market, but as of today, neither have mentioned it on their main social feed. Full Story

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

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

We all know a guitar party guy - you can find him in the corner playing Stairway to Heaven. Cody Simpson is taking that to the next level by bringing a rose and his strings to Miley Cyrus’s hospital room. They’ve been hanging out for just the right amount of time that she finds this sweet. Full Story

A story appeared over the weekend about Henry Winkler and Tom Hanks having beef and I am intrigued. Both of these men have a reputation for being kind and professional, and that is not something either of them could fake for decades. But they worked on Turner and Hooch together and there were some issues – Henry was the director, and then he wasn’t. Full Story
