Lainey sent this to me and because of the time difference, it’s the first thing I watched this morning. From now on, all the anti-vaxx comments I read on celebrity posts will be narrated by this voice. Why do they all think “I’m unfollowing you” is a mic drop? I’m sure Ariana Grande’s 258 million count is just devastated by that unfollow. (And you know the anti-vaxxers are too obsessed with these celebs to go through with it.) Please do yourself a favour and check the location tag on this post.
Lukas Gage IS the moment. All of the standout performances on The White Lotus (I’m obsessed now, I’m sorry) are completely unique from each other which is what makes it so good.
Last week we talked about Jenna Dewan appearing on a podcast to discuss (in part) her post-partum experience and how that conversation was turned into a negative story about Channing Tatum (even though that wasn’t her intent, and they both tried to clean it up afterwards). I read a headline about Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray on PEOPLE.com (Sophia Bush Explains Why She Doesn't Talk About Ex Chad Michael Murray: 'It's Not Worth My Time') and again the source is a podcast. Here is Sophia’s full quote: “Oh, I'm not going to talk about him. I'm not allowed to because I've tried to poke fun at being a dumb kid and whenever I've done that, it gets twisted into I'm talking s--- about somebody who I don't even know anymore, who's clearly a grown-up," Bush explained. "I think you have to, like, laugh at who you used to be, but when people ask me about history that involves someone else … it's not worth my time. It's not a place where I harbor ill will or anything." She and CMM were very young when they got married/divorced, it was a blip. So any way she answers it, it’s turned into a salty headline. She’s newly engaged (as of this week), but this is still a story. Let’s see how long until Us Weekly, Daily Mail etc. run with it.
Idris Elba has signed on to voice Knuckles in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. Can I tell you something about Sonic, without judgement? I enjoyed it. Don’t tell Sarah.
Bob Odenkirk is on the mend and with a lot of time spent, do you think he will catch up on some shows? I would like to know his thoughts on The White Lotus and Succession.
I am doing great. Iâ€™ve had my very own â€œItâ€™s a wonderful lifeâ€ week of people insisting I make the world slightly better. Wow! Thank you, I love everyone right now but letâ€™s keep expectations reasonable!— Mr. Bob Odenkirk (@mrbobodenkirk) August 7, 2021
Did you know Amy Sedaris was Justin Theroux’s best person when he married Jennifer Aniston? This has always made me like Justin a little more. (He’s 50 today. Jennifer put up two stories of him.)
