LINKS! Bachelor finale reactions, Russian meddling receipts, Stormy Daniels lawsuit…

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPSo the Bachelor finale was kind of a WTF thing this year! Here’s a rundown of Bachelor finale reactions, including what Arie’s exes and the rest of the Bachelor Nation — like Sean Lowe, who suggested Arie for the show in the first place — had to say about it

VOXNow there’s a high-end Russian escort who’s claiming that she knows Russia meddled in the 2016 US presidential election because she surreptitiously recorded several Russian oligarchs talking about it for 16 hours while traveling with one such oligarch on his yacht. And she’s already released one recording to prove she’s for real. Because what this election saga really needed was Jennifer Egan’s story “Black Box” come to life

JEZEBELStormy Daniels is suing Donald Trump over their $130,000 hush money agreement because he apparently never signed the damn thing. Trump apparently never signed it so that later he could say there was “no binding agreement in place.” Which is halfway clever, but also why would this be the time that Trump was concerned with being technically honest instead of just straight-up lying?

DLISTEDCynthia Nixon is apparently going to make an honest-to-god run for the governor’s mansion in New York. “You know, Cynthia Nixon is perfect for the world of politics. She’s used to dealing with petty and catty bitches in overpriced shoes.”

CELEBITCHYBrad Pitt flirted with Tiffany Haddish on an elevator before the Academy Awards and they more or less made plans to date / bang in a year’s time. Also, Tiffany Haddish is 38 years old, which honestly comes as a surprise. She seems younger

THE BLEMISHUFC is hyping 24-year-old Mackenzie Dern as the next Rhonda Rousey. Her next big fight is Saturday night, she’s got only five fights to her name so far, and her Instagram feed doubles as a bikini photo gallery

LAINEY GOSSIPJared Leto, who already kind of looks like Jesus if Jesus were sad, went full Bee Gees with his getup for the 2018 Oscars

UPROXXNickelodeon has put in a 20-episode order for a Blue’s Clues reboot and is going to start filming this summer. I got irrationally excited about this news until I remembered that my toddler is perfectly happy to watch the same one episode over and over again on DVD
