Dear Gossips,

I’m writing this at 2am ET. Kathleen just got to my place and Duana is on her way – she texted to ask us if we wanted drive-thru, LOL. We are gathering, OBVIOUSLY, for #BeyoncéHomecoming, joining hundreds of thousands of others around the world (millions, probably?) who are watching it the moment Netflix flips the switch and releases the documentary.  Read Full Intro

Last week weekend, Deadline reported that Universal won the rights to Mindy Kaling’s and Priyanka Chopra’s new untitled comedy about a big Indian wedding that takes place in both America and India. What’s it about?

This makes more sense than Richard Madden. Yalitza Aparicio, the first-time actor at the center of Roma, and also the first indigenous-Latin American to be nominated for an Oscar, broke through some barriers in the acting world. Full Story

Russell Wilson just signed a huge contract and on WWHL, Andy Cohen wanted to talk about it with Ciara. She was very gracious but trying her hardest not to talk cash. I don’t think Ciara took home the bedazzled, “I’m very rich b-tch” football.           Full Story

Taylor Swift is one of the TIME 100 for 2019. Shawn Mendes wrote the feature.  .@ShawnMendes: “The magic of @taylorswift13 doesn’t come from the lights, dancers or fireworks (although all of that is incredible) but from the electrifying connection that she has with the people who are there to see her” #TIME100 Full Story

Richard Madden is on the TIME 100 this year. Why, exactly? I like Madden as much as the next person, but what has he done to put him on this list?

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

In the olden days (15 years ago), when a couple got engaged, we would only have to hear the story once or twice (maybe more, if they were kind of annoying). Before social media, there was no visual element to proposals because that would require not just a photographer to be present, but having those photos developed, and then showing the photos to individual people. Full Story
