YES TESSA THOMPSON. This is what I’m talking about. This is what we need more of. After a long break from red carpeting, you might as well bring it – why play it safe? Tessa isn’t playing safe. Tessa went to the Vanity Fair party like it was the Met Gala and I am f-cking here for it. Speaking of… the Met Gala is happening in six weeks. And I would like to start early with the requirements: it’s the COSTUME Institute Gala. Nobody needs to see another strapless boring dress. (Go Fug Yourself) 


There are a lot of British royal updates to catch up on, including what happened today. I’ll get to that tomorrow but for now, apparently Kate Cambridge is considering doing more trips on her own. (Cele|bitchy) 

The Oscars ratings are in – and there’s been an improvement over last year. But then again, last year was rock bottom so to put this in perspective, it still wasn’t that great. Basically we’ve gone from diarrhea to sh-t. Social media engagement, however, must have been through the roof. I know that Will Smith had a lot to do with that even if he hadn’t slapped Chris Rock, the Oscars still would have been trending strong. (Dlisted) 

I haven’t listened to Paul Rudd’s appearance on Conan O’Brien’s podcast but even just reading about it makes me smile and warm inside – and it’s because I can hear Conan laughing and see him laughing and it’s the best. (Pajiba) 

Definitely trying this recipe this weekend. Roasted seaweed sour cream dip! Give me my life, right now! I will be dunking every f-cking chip I ever eat for the rest of my life into this dip. (Eater)
