A small update on the Olsens in Los Angeles in their signature outfits: black pants, sunglasses, scarves, and handbags. This time there’s no cigarettes, but a can of Perrier. The Row turned 16 this year and it has to feel good for them to come through the closure of Barneys (their largest retail client), the pandemic and multiple executive changes without dropping a drop in prestige or luxuriousness.
Taraji P. Henson has a hair care line (TPH by Taraji) and has now launched a body care line available exclusively at Walmart, with 13 products that are $12 or less. Walmart has been a very successful partner for Drew Barrymore and her Flower line and that kind of brand model is what celebrities are looking at when deciding on price point and accessibility. Walmart is accessible for many people and looking at the product packaging (like The Ish Condish), it’s as sleek looking as anything you’d find at Sephora or Ulta.
A reader wrote in about Sebastian Stan’s Emmy nomination post on Instagram, noting that he tagged Pamela Anderson, someone who had no involvement and didn’t approve of the Hulu series based on her traumatic experience. And it of course is part of the bigger question: what is the point of all the “we were wrong about her” documentaries and miniseries and movies if the woman we were wrong about doesn’t want to participate? (Thank you Kristin!)
I am fascinated by the Funny Girl Broadway drama – it is messy and incredibly dramatic, very Broadway. The Daily Beast has a juicy piece on it and on top of that there are a lot of theatre Twitter opinions. I tend to agree with Tom and Lorenzo that some of the conspiracy theories are a little silly – why would producers spend millions to purposely flop? Isn’t that the plot of The Producers?
I keep reading this theory on here that the producers set Beanie up to fail right from the start, which strikes me as a Q Anon level break from reality. No Broadway producer hopes the star of their revival does a bad job. Come on now.— Tom and Lorenzo (@tomandlorenzo) July 13, 2022
Actor Ioan Gruffudd and his estranged wife Alice Evans are going through an extremely contentious divorce with claims of emotional abuse and lots of coverage in the UK press. One detail that came out in Page Six (via the Daily Mail) is that Evans would call him “saggy vagina eyes.” There have been a lot of terrible and public celebrity divorces over the years and I just know this detail will stick in my brain for a long time, like “rude, thoughtless little pig” has.
Saggy vagina eyes. (He is now dating Bianca Wallace.)
