This morning Lainey wrote about Matthew McConaughey’s rogue relative and it made me think of Ryan Lochte, who last month talked about being estranged from his mother and has accepted that they may never reconcile. There’s a long history of this in the celebrity world: Drew Barrymore was estranged from her mom for a time, as was Jennifer Aniston. Brie Larson and Adele reportedly do not have relationships with their biological fathers. Celebrities are not unique as this happens to all types of families all over the world and if you are a big reader of “Am I the Asshole” on Reddit (which I am), it’s usually a stressful life event, like a wedding, birth or death, that pushes things over the edge. As Lainey pointed out, Meghan Markle got so much bad press about her dad but she didn’t even go no contact with him. The bad press was fueled because she was trying to stay in touch (texts, a letter) and he kept selling her out. She gave him all the chances. And I bet that she would still be open to reconciling with him under the right circumstances. Families, man. But if these two can reconcile, maybe there’s hope for everyone.
Hot piece Kate Beckinsale is reportedly single again after deleting Goody Grace from her Instagram. I would like to Gossip Genie her with Harry Styles. Think about it. It’s perfect.
Is there a questionable kitchen item you’ve been eyeing during quarantine, one that will just collect dust and shame in a cupboard? Lainey bought a donut pan. I want to know how that purchase came about and what time it happened at – was it the middle of the night after a BTS binge? How did it happen?! (Lainey: It happened on a Friday night at 7pm which is when… the magic usually begins.) I’m considering an air fryer (I cook a lot) but it took me a long time to master the Instant Pot so I don’t know if I have the mental fortitude for a new appliance. I don’t use a crockpot anymore but I do visit a lot of recipe blogs and let me tell you, this type of contention is not unusual. Someone asks if they can substitute honey for agave and people go apesh-t in the comments.

My favourite thing about this is the follow-up fact checking by their mom: Sara was 15.
Just got fact checked by my mom. We were 15 years old.— Tegan and Sara (@teganandsara) October 23, 2020
Of the mess you left when you went away!

Ryan Reynolds’s first time was exactly what he had hoped for. But the story is of course Blake’s photoshopped shoes, complete with red bottom. She wrote (in the screenshot below) that it was an absentee drop-off ballot and she wore a mask, so we can assume that they left the house to do this. If so, what shoes did she wear? Where are they? Or did they take this photo when they got home? I don’t get it.
