Chrissy Teigen was named to the TIME 100 list (written by Eric Ripert). I really like Chrissy’s recipes and her approach to cooking because it doesn’t focus on wellness, but on sharing a meal. Every celebrity cookbook is selling more than food; it’s a lifestyle with homey designer kitchens and colourful cast iron pots. There’s a new book, co-written by sociologist Sinikka Elliott, called Pressure Cooker: Why Home Cooking Won’t Solve Our Problems and What We Can Do About It, that explores how the morality around food and family can become a burden, particularly to women. Are all of the celebrity cookbooks (by women like Gwyneth Paltrow, Jessica Seinfeld, Ayesha Curry) that purport to simplify dinner and “help us” actually perpetuating a stressful and impossible ideal? Or can we never have enough chicken recipes?

If a peep-toe platform heel was developed into a TV show, it would be Selling Sunset. There’s something hypnotic about the glossy nihilism of the LA real estate market; the show shouldn’t be addictive, but it is. The breakout star is Chrishell Hartley (she’s married to Justin Hartley from This Is Us) and she has a new Lifetime movie coming up, Staged Killer. It looks like it was shot on a GoPro. The most tension-building moment is a resume being printed… ominously. But with Lori Loughlin dealing with the Feds, there’s a big opportunity for a new face in that market – one Chrishell could corner. In fact, she could play Lori Loughlin in the inevitable movie about the whole debacle.
Jane the Virgin was on last night and what is this show doing to us?!!! How much time can I lurk in the reddit comments for plausible predictions (it turns out: a lot).
I love taco trucks – do you think Michael Douglas likes them, or is this more of a gesture for the crew? He and Catherine Zeta-Jones strike me more as the “chopped salad on Versace plates” kind of eaters.
Who is Halle Berry thirst trapping? Let’s pretend it’s Keanu.
Flip to the third photo to see Adam Driver and Glenn Close find their light.
