LINKS Meek Mill and Vanessa Bryant, Gizelle vs Mary Cosby, Coming to America 2…

DLISTEDThe beef between Meek Mill and Vanessa Bryant appears to be over — Meek announced on Twitter that he’d apologized to Vanessa “in private” after she criticized his (honestly pretty lazy) lyrics referencing / disrespecting Kobe Bryant’s death in a helicopter crash. Vanessa has yet to address the apology, though

REALITY TEAIn Bryant news of a different sort, RHOP star Gizelle Bryant is stirring up that cross-Housewives pot with some words for Real Housewives of Salt Lake City breakout star Mary Cosby. Or, more specifically, for Mary and — you guessed it! — her always-fascinating marriage to her step-grandfather Robert

CELEBITCHYEddie Murphy talked to Essence about Coming to America 2 and said he “didn’t want to do…a bad sequel to a movie that a lot of people” love. But that…kind of sounds like a lukewarm endorsement of the sequel?

THE BLASTKelly Dodd denied she’s been fired from Real Housewives of Orange County, and honestly, if it didn’t happen in the immediate aftermath of her latest thoughtless comments, it’s probably not going to happen at all

JEZEBELIt seems the Golden Globes are guilty of what industry insiders have long termed a little light corruption. An LA Times investigation revealed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association turns studio luxury junkets into nominations for preferred shows and movies, which is why the universally reviled Emily In Paris will be featured during the ceremony and the beloved Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom will not

LAINEY GOSSIPThe HFPA and Golden Globes organizers have to be secretly thrilled with this development, though. In a year when nobody went to see movies and an era when awards show ratings are slipping, what could be better for this week’s ceremony than some red hot controversy?

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPWe’ve got our first look at WeTV’s upcoming Mama June: Road to Redemption, which premieres in a little less than a month. Highlights include June “finally” going to rehab and her psychiatrist telling her she’s “out of [her] mind” for thinking she should be in her daughters’ lives right now

GO FUG YOURSELFCome for the pics of Sarah Jessica Parker looking every inch a “high-fashion milkmaid”; stay for the amazing run of milkmaid-themed 90s alt rock puns

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPThe Duggars have been casting teensy shrub shade on Jill “Renegade” Dillard for weeks now, and it seems Joy-Anna Duggar is the latest family member to take the social media bait

LINKS Charisma Carpenter and Joss Whedon, Britney becoming ‘normal,’ JWoww’s vow…

CELEBITCHYThere have been accusations and gossip about Joss Whedon’s behavior for years, but this is the first time we’ve heard anything about Charisma Carpenter and Joss Whedon, who worked together on Buffy the Vampire Slayer for years. According to Charisma — whose lengthy post was backed up by other former cast members — Whedon was a bully on set and created a toxic environment that traumatized her for years

THE BLASTBritney Spears has yet to address her infamous conservatorship or the new Netflix documentary about her, but she has used social media to tell her fans that she’s using the time off to learn how to become a “normal person”

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPJWoww says she’s done with Jersey Shore if she has to share another set with Angelina Pivarnick

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPFor your Valentine’s Day perusal: “How To Have a ‘Progressive Date’ a la Jill & Derick Dillard: 10 Creepy & Awkward Steps”

LAINEY GOSSIPMeghan Markle has won her lawsuit against Associated Newspapers, the parent company of the Daily Mail, which a court found violated Meghan’s “privacy and copyright” by publishing a letter to her shameless grifter father Thomas. It turns out this is also the second case the DM has lost against the Markles in the past two weeks. I wouldn’t expect a tabloid to change its behavior, but the legal precedents are good

GO FUG YOURSELFHere are a bunch of “hideous” and / or creepy (and also kind of neat?) Valentines Day cards from the long-ago period of the 1920s, when absinthe made every heartfelt thing weird

REALITY TEANow that Real Housewives of Salt Lake City‘s first season is wrapping up, Lisa Barlow appears to be pulling back the curtain somewhat with regard to which cast members “put it on heavy for [the] camera”

DLISTEDApparently Bruce Springsteen’s DWI arrest should never have happened, since he only blew a .02 and New Jersey’s legal limit is .08. What I still don’t understand is, given his legal blood-alcohol level, how exactly Springsteen was arrested in the first place

JEZEBELIf, over the past year, you’ve been put in the delicious-yet-unfortunate position of wondering whether it’s okay to tell a mask-shunning friend who caught COVID “I told you so,” has Jezebel got an advice column for you

VOXFinally, if you’ve been anticipating the third To All the Boys movie, the first reviews are coming in. Like this one: “This movie is just okay. It’s nothing more than that”

LINKS Armie Hammer exposé, Aaron Rogers and Shailene Woodley, Gorilla Glue woman…

CELEBITCHYThe latest round of text messages allegedly from Armie Hammer is even more disturbing than the first. There are some pretty graphic descriptions of sexual cannibalism, torture, and abuse; Armie has also been dropped by both his agent and his publicist, which would seem to suggest that a) there is some truth to the allegations, and b) there could be a major Armie Hammer exposé coming

DLISTEDIt was only a week ago that Aaron Rogers and Shailene Woodley confirmed that they’re dating. At the time, it looked like they had been seeing each other on the DL for a little while, and only went public after the Packers’ season ended. But now the truth has come out: they’re actually *engaged*, to which Rogers’ publicist simply said, “When you know, you know, right?”

JEZEBELTessica Brown — better known as the Gorilla Glue woman — spent 22 hours in the emergency room this past weekend trying to get her makeshift hairstyling product off of her head for good. All that happened was Brown suffered scalp burns from acetone; she’s still got Gorilla Glue stuck to her head and hair (and hopefully nowhere else). Now she’s apparently lining up lawyers to sue Gorilla Glue

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPRIP to Alaskan Bush People star Billy Brown: his son Bear Brown announced that the “beloved patriarch” passed away unexpectedly over the weekend at the age of 68

GO FUG YOURSELFI was half asleep when The Weeknd played the Super Bowl halftime show, and I thought it was kind of strange and therefore a welcome break from the game itself; if social media is any indication, most people seemed to enjoy his performance. And so here’s a break from the wave of good reviews: “‘Fine’ about covers it. Maybe I’m misremembering, but the best of the past productions took those familiar performers and worked in fresh tricks. This, conversely, came across like a stubborn disinterest in breaking out of this supposed ‘storyline'”

THE BLASTIt seems Tekaski 6ix9ine is back to trolling other rappers and maybe living dangerously or maybe just living an act that he can no longer decipher?

REALITY TEASure, RHONY may be on a filming break due to an undisclosed cast and / or crew member contracting COVID-19. And yes, this may be the second time the show has had to put filming on hold due to COVID exposure. But gosh darn it, if Ramona Singer wants to jet on down to Florida so she can go to a yacht party where no one is wearing masks, then she’s going to do it

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPOn that note, it seems Kylie Jenner is attracting plenty of backlash for her frequent traveling and vacationing and general not caring about any coronavirus restrictions or PPE

LAINEY GOSSIPAs someone who is not watching WandaVision and has no feelings for or against it, I can tell you that the debates people are having over whether the show is a delicious slow burn or just really boring are way more entertaining than the show itself could possibly be

VOX“12 movies that everyone will be talking about this year: The best fiction films we saw at Sundance, from the bizarre to the sublime.”

LINKS Bridgerton Season 2 gossip, Elon Musk’s wealth, RHOSLC intensifies…

CELEBITCHYThere’s a ton of Bridgerton Season 2 gossip out there, because surprisingly Netflix has yet to answer the question everyone’s asking: Will the show be renewed? (Seriously, Netflix, what’s the holdup?)

DLISTEDThanks to “an incredible surge in Tesla’s stock price,” Elon Musk is now the richest person in the world. It’s a close race — Musk’s $185 billion is just a smidge higher than Jeff Bezos’ $184 — but a year ago Musk was *only* worth $27 billion. I have no idea what Tesla does

REALITY TEA“This! This is the episode I’ve been waiting to see on The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City. After weeks of personal storylines and lots of behind-the-back gossiping, the drama finally erupted in the 801. And it was all thanks to Whitney Rose”

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPThe Ashley’s latest Teen Mom News Pile is headilined by Kail Lowry changing her five-month-old son Creed’s last name from Lopez (the same as Creed’s biological father Chris) to Lowry-Lopez. Kail made the change after Chris failed to “step up” as a dad

VOXAs for the elephant in the room, here’s the latest on whether or not Donald Trump will be either impeached by Congress or removed from office via the 25th Amendment after inciting his followers to riot and take over the U.S. Capitol building on Wednesday

JEZEBELAnd in pseudo-celebrity news, Britney Spears’ three-day husband Jason Alexander was a part of that riot. It’s not clear how big a part Jason played, though, as despite talking a big game before things got serious he’s been pretty quiet on social media since

THE BLASTDanielle Busby of TLC’s quintuplet hit Outdaughtered is out of the hospital and feeling better after a mysterious recurring pain drove her to seek medical attention. Trouble is, it seems doctors haven’t yet been able to identify the source of the pain

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP“Angelina Pivarnick to Jersey Shore Cast: I Ain’t as Evil as Youse Guys Think!”

LAINEY GOSSIPIt seems Nicholas Cage’s brand-new television series The History of Swear Words is like a less entertaining version of “those old VH-1 clip shows that were popular 20 years ago,” in that it relies heavily on comedians to spit punchlines about the swear words in question instead of actually explaining the history behind those words

GO FUG YOURSELFRemember when teeny tiny sweaters were a fashion triend (for a minute back in the mid-aughts)? Somehow they look even more ill-conceived now

LINKS Cardi B Woman of the Year, Megan Thee Stallion topless, Eboni K. Williams hype…

DLISTEDIt comes as no surprise to learn about the Cardi B Woman of the Year accolade from Billboard; thanks to “WAP” this was arguably Cardi’s biggest year yet. But it also feels like we’ve said that each of the last few years, so maybe her huge star is still expanding?

THE BLASTMegan Thee Stallion waited until Tory Lanez’s not guilty plea to share a topless pic on Instagram

REALITY TEA“Eboni K. Williams Says Dorinda Medley Congratulated Her On Joining Real Housewives Of New York

CELEBITCHYApparently Camilla, Dutchess of Cornwall, is a huge fan of The Crown and plans to watch it “with a glass of red wine” and her “wonderful sense of humor,” making her exactly one member of the royal family about whom such things can be said

LAINEY GOSSIPAnd on that note, enjoy “the five filthiest reads in The Crown season four” (#3 seems like a pretty good summary of the show itself?)

JEZEBEL“Per Bravo’s shady montage scenes, RHOP’s newest cast member Dr. Wendy Osefo has brought up her education a fair degree, pun intended. But what is it about Osefo’s four degrees that gets under everyone’s skin—and what does it say about acceptable housewife behavior?”

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPLauren Comeau is “no closer” to forgiving Javi Marroquin for trying to have sex with Kailyn Lowry in the parking lot of a gas station. Maybe she would have forgiven him by now if he hadn’t already cheated on her in one part of their house while she was asleep in another part

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPYep, the Duggar family’s early engagements really appear to be linked to a desire for some sexy times

VOXWonder Woman 1984 is coming out on Christmas Day, but you don’t have to risk a holiday movie theater superspreader event to see it — the long-delayed film will also be available through HBO Max

GO FUG YOURSELFKylie Minogue wore a frilly black cocktail dress to for a Zoom appearance on a talk show at nine o’ clock in the morning; I for one hope this becomes the standard for all future celebrity morning chat show appearances, both during- and post-pandemic

How many handshakes has Paul given on The Great British Baking Show?

Over the last few series, Paul Hollywood’s propensity for handshake praise appears to have increased dramatically. With that increase has come a rash of criticism — but how many handshakes has Paul given on The Great British Baking Show? When did the Hollywood Handshake start? And is Paul really still shaking hands at a furious clip? Read on for the details of each of Paul’s handshakes, which even he has acknowledged might be a bit too common.

PHOTOS Milla Clark now: My 600 Lb Life legend has completely new life out west

We were happy to crown Milla Clark the biggest loser in My 600 Lb Life history.
