We’re a little over two months away from the start of Joe Biden’s presidency. But the person who currently holds that office hasn’t shown any sign he’s ready to take the L and move on. So, will Donald Trump leave the White House peacefully? Or will the Secret Service actually have to remove him by force after Biden gets sworn in?
Shortly after Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek passed away, the show’s owners revealed two surprising pieces of information. One is the date of Alex Trebek’s last Jeopardy episode — and the other is the date Trebek filmed the episode itself.
CELEBITCHY – It turns out that the Biden Harris victory in the 2020 Presidential Election was both a lot closer than what most of us expected and also not that close at all. Though America’s current president is disputing the result because it doesn’t favor him, it looks like Joe Biden and Kamala Harris will have won with around 306 electoral votes and a popular vote majority of at least five million
VOX – Kamala Harris represents at least three major firsts: she’ll be the first woman to serve as Vice President, as well as the first Black person and the first person of South Asian descent
JEZEBEL – Returning to America’s current president (for one of the last times): Donald Trump’s presidency came to an ignominious end in the parking lot of a lawn care company over the weekend. By all reports, he’s been watching TV and shouting ever since
DLISTED – CNN anchor Anderson Cooper apologized for calling Donald Trump an “obese turtle, on his back, flailing in the hot sun” after Trump’s pitiful Thursday night press conference — something that Cooper did not have to do, because his simile was startlingly accurate, but that he did anyway
LAINEY GOSSIP – Joe Biden may have won the presidency, but MSNBC anchor, numbers guru, sleepless wonder, and newly designated snack Steve Kornacki ran away with the race for America’s heart
THE BLAST – In a segue back to celebrity news, Lizzo celebrated the Biden Harris election by jumping on her jetski shouting “BYE BITCH!” as she sped across the water
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Flip or Flop‘s Christina Anstead has some words for people who’ve accused her of being an absentee mother during her divorce from Ant. (“Absent mother” is also kind of a tough one to throw in the middle of a pandemic, when there’s plenty of evidence of parents *wishing* they could abandon their kids for even five minutes)
REALITY TEA – “Andy Cohen Says Stassi Schroeder And Kristen Doute’s Exit From Vanderpump Rules Will ‘Create A Lot Of Story That Is Absolutely Real'”
THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP – It will probably come as no surprise for you to learn that Jinger Dugger and Jeremy Vuolo think Halloween is a Satanic cult thing…but that that’s no reason for them to stop celebrating it
GO FUG YOURSELF – Why yes, I do want to see a great picture of Grace Jones and Dolph Lundgren; thank you for asking!
It’s the end of an era for the most popular American game show of all time. Jeopardy! host and pop culture icon Alex Trebek died this morning, after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. The 80-year-old Trebek was immediately mourned by legions of fans — including the three biggest champions in Jeopardy! history.
It was the absolute best and most fitting way for Donald Trump’s presidency to end. And it didn’t involve any electoral drama, political intrigue, or embarrassing White House standoffs. No, the Trump event at Four Seasons Total Landscaping in Philadelphia was the perfect end of the Trump era because it was a distillation of everything about the man: a big promise, a lot of buildup, stone-faced commitment to a ridiculous mistake. And then, ultimately, nothing of substance at all.
If you’ve been getting frustrated waiting for fresh tea on the new Basketball Wives season, break out a smile! Your wait is officially over — and what’s coming is *piping* hot.

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Congratulations are finally in order for Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton! Gossip’s longest-running will-they-won’t-they couple is *finally* ready to tie the knot. And we got official confirmation of Gwen and Blake engaged from the stars themselves
THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP – Chrissy Tiegen made an emotional return to the public sphere four weeks after losing her son midway through her pregnancy. In a heartfelt Medium essay, Tiegen thanked everyone who’s reached out to offer support, and said she announced her miscarriage to help strengthen other women who’ve suffered the same thing but felt they couldn’t speak out
GO FUG YOURSELF – Emily Ratajkowski announced her pregnancy via a pap stroll and an essay on “gestation and gender” in the latest Vogue. Emily’s pregnancy pap stroll outfit of choice is also worth a look
LAINEY GOSSIP – Sofia Coppola’s newest movie, On The Rocks, is nothing you haven’t seen from her before. But maybe that’s exactly what you want in the middle of a pandemic and a presidential election that are essentially the same thing. Also of note: Bill Murray being Bill Murray, always a balm
DLISTED – Was anyone else’s Twitter feed so overwhelmed with piss takes on Kim Kardashian’s 40th birthday party announcement that you failed to notice Kanye wasn’t there for her private island soirée?
JEZEBEL – Headline of the Day; likely Content of the Week: “Thank the Satanic Panic for Beetlejuice, The Addams Family, and the Golden Age of Creepy Kids’ Shit”
THE BLAST – Old: Kim Zolciak spends two thousand dollars a day on “glam” for herself and her eighteen-year-old daughter. Shiny and new: Britney Spears drops $500 daily on a private in-home chef (practically a necessity in the time of COVID)
VOX – Further proof that just giving needy people money is probably a good idea: “A Canadian study gave $7,500 to homeless people. Here’s how they spent it: The results show the power of cash transfers to reduce homelessness.”
REALITY TEA – Southern Charm comes back tomorrow night, so naturally there’s a lot to unpack here: “Craig Conover Was ‘Heartbroken’ When Cameran Eubanks Quit Southern Charm, Says She Was Set To Film And Quit The Day Before, He Thinks He Can Convince Cameran To Return; Addresses Cheating Allegations Spread By Kathryn Dennis”
CELEBITCHY – I probably shouldn’t be tickled by this story George and Amal Clooney sharing power happily with Harry and Meghan, but it’s tough when literally everyone involved is this charming and suave
It looks like things might be right back at feud mode for NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey. The Real Housewives of Atlanta stars and former besties reconciled briefly following their “friend feud” on the show. But recent gossip suggests that there’s once again no love lost between them.
