CELEBITCHY – Prince Philip’s death has a whole bunch of monarchical knives coming out, some of them in pathetic ways. Like this one: Prince Andrew, who was basically exiled from public life in 2019 after it became clear he was in some sort of cahoots with Jeffrey Epstein, is now leveraging his father’s death to make himself look like a savior for coming to his mother’s side
JEZEBEL – Also piggybacking on Prince Philip’s death: racist media outlets on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. Stateside, Fox News is more or less accusing Oprah of murdering Philip, since it was her interview with Meghan and Harry that led, directly and unequivocally, to the 99-year-old ailing man’s death
VOX – Meanwhile, tabloids in the UK are using Philip’s passing to accuse Meghan Markle of the same thing. And once again, in case it’s not clear, that “thing” is straight-up murdering a 99-year-old man in failing health with the deadly weapon of dark skin
DLISTED – But there’s another mystery in headlines this morning: it seems JLo’s engagement ring has gone missing. Just a month ago, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez’s engagement was reportedly off, until it was immediately back on. But in her latest social media pics, JLo isn’t wearing her engagement ring…
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Speaking of healthy relationships, Jax Taylor’s companion of choice is, in his own words, keeping him “with my wife.” That’s right: if it weren’t for weed, “I probably wouldn’t be with” Brittany Cartwright “right now,” said Jax, in the process confirming Billie Lee’s gossip from last week
GO FUG YOURSELF – If you’re anything like me, you’re a complete and total sucker for obvious-yet-entertaining Speed references. And if you’re not, rest assured that this gallery has an abundance of photos of Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock looking way too young and gorgeous at the movie’s 1995 premiere
REALITY TEA – Never get tired of this back-and-forth: “Hannah Ferrier Says Captain Sandy Yawn Was Competitive And Wanted Her Gone From Below Deck Mediterranean From The Beginning; Captain Sandy Says She’s A Real Captain And Hannah Was Just There For The Camera”
THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP – I guess it’s a good thing any time a member of the Duggar clan puts some genuine physical distance between themselves and the rest of the family’s Arkansas tentacles

It goes without saying that breakout Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah’s upcoming trial on federal fraud charges will be the biggest storyline of the new season.

CELEBITCHY – It seems the Duke of Hastings was always going to be a one-shot: the rumors of Rege-Jean Page moving on from Bridgerton after just one season are in fact true. Page said he knew all along that his character would only be present in Bridgerton‘s first season — partly because producers told him so, partly because the Duke’s storyline is really only present in the first book the series is based on — and that he’s totally fine with it
THE BLAST – According to several new reports, DMX’s heart actually stopped three separate times after his alleged overdose this past weekend, and paramedics had to revive him “three different times,” including once after he’d arrived at the hospital via ambulance
REALITY TEA – Below Deck Mediterranean star and general MC Captain Sandy Yawn is dishing on the best chefs in the Below Deck universe. It’s really refreshing to have what would be fightin’ words in any other reality franchise — “X is better than Y, full stop” — be just kind of standard information, because the captain is the captain and who’s challenging her?
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Jax Taylor says it’s his bookkeeper’s fault he owes $1.2 million in back taxes (probably not inaccurate) and also that Bravo “made a good decision” firing him from Vanderpump Rules (wait, what?)
JEZEBEL – Objectivity is too complicated a concept for readers steeped in 21st century partisan fighting to appreciate, let alone understand. Which is to say the promise of objective journalism was never a sincere one
THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP – One of Khloe Kardashian’s assistants accidentally posted an un-Photoshopped bikini pic of Khloe to her social media. Now, Khloe’s team is scrambling to get the picture off of the internet — though it’s really not clear why they would even try, since a) that’s impossible and b) untouched Khloe pics are going to endear her to way more people than will mock her for them
GO FUG YOURSELF – Viola Davis is now the Best Actress Oscar frontrunner, for her performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom; and, if there was any doubt: yes, she does look good playing the awards circuit
VOX – Don’t use Amazon
DLISTED – The opening sentence says it all: “Joss Whedon is a dick.” And now there’s even more proof of it
LAINEY GOSSIP – Is it that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is kind of a grind to get through, or is it that everyone was so blown away by WandaVision that the next thing was always going to seem unsatisfying by comparison?
