My first thought was that wow, it’s been a while since we’ve talked about Paula Patton. As for the outfit, I’m not mad at it at all. In fact I think I actually have the less expensive version of those jeans which I bought at Zara just before the pandemic. Everything else is pretty standard to a wardrobe. You know what the problem is and why her outfit doesn’t feel fresh, though? The shoes. Loafers, combats, chunky sneakers, or even a pair of slides, which I never endorse, would have modernised the look. (Go Fug Yourself)


There was a hearing yesterday in Virginia Giuffre’s case against Prince Andrew. Just making sure you know - she’s suing him for allegedly sexually assaulting her when she was underage and sex trafficked by his friend, the dead rapist pedophile, Jeffrey Epstein. The trial is now expected to happen next fall. The phrase “perspire under pressure” in this post is a chef’s kiss. (Dlisted)

Have you ever fantasised about having sex with Santa Claus? I can’t say that I have but also I probably have kinks that you’ve never considered either so if getting boned by Santa is what you have on your Christmas horny list, you do you. Or you do him, whatever works. And know that you’re not alone. There’s a community of people out there lusting over Saint Nick and a whole romance novel genre dedicated to helping you get off on him. And not a beefcaked version of him either. This is full-body Santa who f-cks the way you want him to f-ck and leaves a peppermint aftertaste in your mouth. I wish I had thought of that. (Pajiba)


Lady Louise turns 18 next week. As we have seen over the last year, since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit as working members of the British royal family, people have been trying to make the Wessexes happen. And the Wessexes want themselves to happen. Looks like they’re starting with Louise, who could very well be styled at HRH, a proper princess, to celebrate her birthday. They’re hoping she becomes the Firm’s new star. Louise seems so sweet and soft. Too sweet and soft to be pulled into all this family politicking. (Celebitchy) 

Happy Diwali! As the kids would say, it’s lit in India today, literally, as more than a billion Hindus celebrate the five-day holiday that symbolises inner light prevailing over darkness. The World Trade Center is honouring Diwali for the first time with a digital mural and there will also be a fireworks display in New York. (NPR)
