LINKS Kylie Jenner side piece, New Tenet trailer, Jax Taylor confused…

DLISTED“Drake ‘accidentally’ (emphasis mine) played a track that was a previously unreleased collaboration with Future in which he raps ‘Kylie Jenner that’s a side piece’ and that he’s got ’20 motherf*cking Kylies.’ As charming and fitting a sentiment as that is, in the cold hard light of day, Drake found the need to say oopsie and blamed the DJ”

THE BLAST“The make-up mogul took to Instagram seemingly to respond to the overnight controversy of Drake calling her his ‘side-piece.’ Instead of directly addressing the subject, she decided to just post some of the hottest photos you have even seen”

PAJIBA“The first full-length trailer for Christopher Nolan’s Tenent premiered tonight on…Fortnight. Thankfully, it was quickly made available for the rest of us on YouTube. Now that we have seen all two minutes and 50 seconds of it, we can finally tell you what it’s about. It’s about, uh, Denzel’s kid. And Robert Pattinson. And Elizabeth Debicki, and also the word Tenet, which definitely means something. And also something called inversion, which is reversing time, which will allow Denzek’s kid to stop Kenneth Branaugh — who is a Russian spy — from starting World War III. Got it? Do keep up”

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP“Some of Vanderpump Rules‘ longtime fans were unimpressed with the show’s most-recent season, which came to an end on Tuesday. Fans weren’t the only ones who took to social media to express their displeasure with the way Season 8 turned out; Jax Taylor joined in on the bashing of the show on Wednesday”

REALITY TEA“Phaedra [Parks[ and her boyfriend, rapper Medina Islam, are part of the next cast of Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition. The pair have been dating since March of 2019. Despite meeting on a dating app, Phaedra says she ‘knew him from around town in Atlanta.’ She said of Medina, ‘You know, he used to be on a show here so we have a lot of mutual friends. One of my best friends is one of his best friends as well.'”

JEZEBEL“Emily Blunt’s husband John Krasinski has sold his self-produced YouTube show Some Good News to ViacomCBS for an undisclosed amount…The show’s aim was to feature feel-good clips, giveaways from corporate sponsors, and lots of time spent with Krasinski near tears—it was a simple and pure idea. But purity, be damned, it’s time to make some money!”

CELEBITCHY“Patton Oswalt’s wife Meredith Salenger left a scary note on his car after a big fight”

VOX“The Senate won’t consider more coronavirus stimulus until early June: Lawmakers break for recess as Republicans question the urgency of more funding”

LAINEY GOSSIP“Here are some new photos of Bradley Cooper outside his NY apartment this week. And apparently he’s not staying there alone. Of course he’s parenting his daughter, but there was a woman seen bringing in groceries at the door – and according to the paps, it’s Kristin O’Connor, a wellness chef. They’ve apparently known each other a while as she worked with Coop on American Sniper. Which means…Maybe they’re working together again?”

My 600 Lb Life update: Judge denies Megalomedia dismissal request, consolidates all 10 lawsuits (Exclusive)

In the first major My 600 Lb Life update in weeks regarding the ten lawsuits against the show’s production company, a judge has agreed with the cast members’ request to consolidate most of those suits. The judge also sided with the cast on Megalomedia’s request to deny the plantiffs’ request to take deposition from two key members of the production crew — one of whom is Jonathan Nowzaradan, Dr. Now’s son and the creator of My 600 Lb Life.

LINKS Tristan Thompson and Kimberly Alexander, Brian Austin Green split, Very Cavallari over…

DLISTEDIt looks like the spotlight will be on Tristan Thompson and Kimberly Alexander for a little bit longer than either of them maybe wanted — Khloe’s ex is suing his alleged former lover for libel after she claimed he’s the father of her son, and a paternity test done by a lab linked to the Kardashian family came back negative

LAINEY GOSSIPBrian Austin Green and Megan Fox have once again gone their separate ways: after filing for divorce and then reconciling back in 2014, Green revealed that Fox asked for the second split after realizing she “feel[s] more like herself” when she’s not with him

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPThe end of Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler’s marriage also means the end of Very Cavallari. Kristin explained she’s “decided not to continue” with the show and is instead ready to “start this new chapter” in her life

GO FUG YOURSELFThis is indeed a strange and questionable outfit — but is Emily Ratajkowski’s 2017 Cannes pseudo-dress really a contender for “one of the worst outfits PERIOD in fashion’s long, iffy history”?

VOXSo there’s a new book in the Hunger Games trilogy, and while it’s a prequel that focuses on the original novels’ villain — both facts that generally scream “cash grab” — The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes is apparently…appropriate for our current political situation and also pretty good?

CELEBITCHYEvidently Kourtney Kardashian is using her time in quarantine to perfect a new hair care technique: shampooing it once a week, at the beginning of the week, and never after that even when she’s worked out

JEZEBEL“A Chat With @ArmasUpdates, the Ana de Armas Stan Account That Deserves to Be Unblocked”

PAJIBA“…I thought, therefore, that we’d try out a new feature for the summer of the pandemic: Reflect back on some of the best moments in late-night history, basically from Letterman in the ’80s, Conan in the ’90s, Kimmel in the aughts, Colbert in the 10s, and Trevor Noah et al. in the 20s”

LINKS Scheana vs Editor, Kelly Dodd’s Covid comments, Kathryn Dennis controversy…

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPIt’s Scheana vs Editor in an unexpected Vanderpump Rules dustup, as one of the show’s editors recently revealed that she goes out of her way to make Scheana look bad whenever possible for the final cut. Editor Bri Dellinger said on a since-deleted episode of Twisted Plot Podcast that “If If Scheana knew what was good for her, she’d befriend me because my favorite game is finding all of the embarrassing things that Scheana does and putting them all in”

REALITY TEAI’ve lost track of how many reality stars have said flippant things about the number of people who’ll die as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but Real Housewives of Orange County star Kelly Dodd is the latest. Whether out of genuine disgust or ass-covering, several former RHOC stars quickly took Kelly to task

CELEBITCHYIn adjacent reality-stars-acting-terribly news, Southern Charm‘s Kathryn Dennis issued a faux-pology after making several racist comments about a Charleston radio host who called out a friend of Kathryn’s for being — wait for it — racist

DLISTEDRobert Pattinson’s GQ cover feature is pretty bananas for a number of different reasons, but the main one seems to be that Pattinson is barely capable of taking care of himself and at one point has a hilariously inept time trying to cook pasta in the microwave. (Also, it seems Tenet doesn’t actually involve time travel, which makes me a) want to see it more and b) even sadder that there’s no way it’s showing in a real, live movie theater)

LAINEY GOSSIPCanada’s Drag Race, set to debut later this summer, finally offered a big preview, and if you’re a fan of the original you should be happy: “There’s a lot to get excited about. Stacey McKenzie talks about the diversity of drag and of contestants. I’m hoping that we’ll get to see more cultures and artistry on screen. Bowyer-Chapman even hints at a potential Drag King, maybe even in this season! Brooke Lynn also talks about how being a contestant on the show has made her more empathetic to some of the challenges the girls are going through. That’s a unique perspective that I don’t think any other Drag Race franchise has”

JEZEBELShould we bring back pieing politians we disagree with, or is this far too quaint an idea for 2020 and beyond? Side question: If we do bring it back, can we please go beyond just whipped cream in a pie tin? I feel like a good, heavy fruit pie to the face would be far more satisfying to both use for the pie-er and witness for the blogger watching from the comfort of home

LHHH Princess Love files for divorce from Ray J, then trolls him on social media

Love & Hip Hop Hollywood‘s most high-profile couple is finally on the outs — but why is Princess Love divorcing Ray J? Just months after their marriage nearly came to and end when Ray stranded his pregnant wife and their daughter in Las Vegas, Princess has had enough, filing for a formal separation in Los Angeles County Court. Read on for the latest on what’s sure to be a messy split…

LINKS Jay Cutler is lazy, Ariel Winter’s finger, Meghan and Harry and Tyler Perry…

CELEBITCHYEvidently Kristin Cavallari is divorcing Jay Cutler in large part because Jay Cutler is lazy: instead of taking “this big job at Fox Sports,” he decided he would rather “hang out with their three kids and menagerie of animals” on the couple’s farm. I was going to just say “Bears fans everywhere: ‘No shit, Kristin,'” but honestly, who wouldn’t prefer having a carefree good time with your kids all day to having to be on TV a thousand miles away from them?

THE BLEMISHIt seems that Ariel Winter accidentally cut off the top of her thumb while slicing a tomato to make some unspecified Greek food. Ariel’s boyfriend brought the severed portion of the thumb to the hospital, but, for further unspecified reasons, doctors…weren’t able to reattach it? So Ariel Winter just has one and a half thumbs now?

THE BLASTMeghan Markle and Prince Harry are chilling for the time being at a $18 million LA-area mansion owned by Tyler Perry. To me, the most impressive fact from this story is that the mansion sits on 22 acres. I would have guessed a plot that big didn’t still exist in Los Angeles, which I assume explains why it has multiple guard gates

What is Kanye West’s real net worth, and will he use it to build those Star Wars houses?

But what is Kanye West’s real net worth — and how much is he inflating it?
