PROGRAMMING UPDATE: Monday, August 1 is a holiday in many parts of Canada. We are dark and will return to regular gossip schedule on Tuesday, August 2.
Will Smith offers a second apology for The Slap. Starting to believe those rumors Apple is going to try and release his film, Emancipation, this year after all. This looks like step one of paving the way for a publicity tour. (Popsugar)
Candace Cameron Bure’s daughter, Natasha, weighed in on Jojo Siwa calling her mom the “rudest” celebrity Jojo’s ever met with a real “Kim, there’s people that are dying” response. Honestly, I object to referring to Candace Cameron Bure as a celebrity. (DListed)
As Lainey mentioned in yesterday’s open, Keke Palmer is killing her Nope style game. She wore a bright green lace gown for the Nope London premiere. I appreciate that the feather waist detail is sort of cloud-like, which goes with the movie, but also, I would like this dress more without it. (Go Fug Yourself)
Senatorial sprinter Josh Hawley is writing a book called Manhood: The Masculine Virtues Americans Need. What would he know about any of that? (Celebitchy)
Going with Vengeance, a film about small-town America, opening today in theaters, the excellent Roxana Hadadi examines Jeremy Saulnier’s triptych of feature films set on the fringes of America, in small towns and backwoods places and the working poor who scrape out meager existences, all but left behind by twenty-first century progress. Saulnier’s films are beyond gritty, and Roxana makes a compelling case for his grim vision of America’s forgot-land. (RogerEbert.com)
