LINKS New RHOBH gossip, Gigi Hadid vs. Jake Paul, Coronavirus update…

REALITY TEADespite all the new RHOBH gossip we’ve gotten about Denise Richards and Brandi Glanville maybe hooking up and Kim Richards’ allegedly explosive memoir and Dorit Kemsley’s rumored divorce and all the rest of it, Erika Jayne says that Lisa Rinna is (still) the “biggest pot-stirrer” on the upcoming season

JEZEBELHere’s the deal with the feud between Gigi Hadid and Jake Paul, which started not when Jake called Zayn Malik out on Twitter, but rather when Jake Paul got a YouTube channel

VOXJust gonna quote this one: “‘We are at a turning point: The coronavirus outbreak is looking more like a pandemic — Health experts say it’s time to prepare for worldwide spread on all continents.”

THE BLASTLil Nas X crashed a wedding at Disney World for reasons that aren’t entirely clear. (Maybe he’s a huge Bill Murray fan?) Anyway, he seemed to have a great time, as did the bride and groom, and yes of course there’s video

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPJill and Derick Dillard are sending their oldest son to public school for kindergarten instead of homeschooling him. Presumably this is so Jill can get a job that pays better than plugging a sex tips book on social media

CELEBITCHYIt seems Edie Falco’s children have turned into real-life versions of AJ and Meadow Soprano

LAINEY GOSSIPLeave it to Lainey to explain why this interview between Ali Wong and Lana Condor is so special

GO FUG YOURSELFThe winners of the red carpet at the NAACP Awards included Lizzo and Janelle Monae (to absolutely no one’s surprise), Asante Blackk, Kiki Layne, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Jill Scott

DLISTEDIt seems Frankie “Malcom in the Middle” Muniz is generating some bulging eye emojis for his shirtless dancing to “Pony” by Ginuwine

MY 600 LB LIFE Brianne Dias ‘praying’ for her estranged husband Rick to end his affair

The latest Brianne Dias husband news appears to confirm what Brianne herself recently told us. Starcasm broke the story of the My 600 Lb Life star’s husband’s infidelity; now, Brianne says she’s on her knees “praying” for Rick’s return, even as he seems to be preparing for a divorce from his wife of eight years.

LINKS Steven Spielberg’s daughter, NeNe Leakes’ plea, More Bachelor contestant controversy…

CELEBITCHYSteven Spielberg’s daughter Mikaela has announced she wants a career performing in adult films. Mikaela is 23, so her decision isn’t exactly Reese Witherspoon’s daughter from Big Little Lies announcing she’s auctioning off her virginity to fight climate change. Also, the coverage of Mikaela’s announcement is a bit misleading: she’s told her parents she’ll be “starring in her own solo porn videos,” something that’s hardly uncommon anymore

REALITY TEANeNe Leakes is trying to get more of your attention (and to distract you from her boring non-presence on RHOA this season) by claiming she doesn’t “get any sympathy” despite having struggled with personal issues for the past year

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPIn addition to apologizing for being a White Lives Matter supporter, Bachelor contestant Victoria Fuller would like to say sorry for her just-resurfaced 2017 DWI arrest. The way the show is now setting her up as this longtime heartbreaker and having other people come on to warn this season’s Bachelor about Victoria makes me think the producers knew all about Victoria’s past. Maybe the vetting for major network reality TV is more thorough than on basic cable

DLISTEDTurns out Forever 21 isn’t going into the bankruptcy black hole after all — the chain has been saved by a last-minute purchase by three other fashion companies, who announced that they’re keeping open almost all of the brick-and-mortar stores

VOXMike Bloomberg had such a bad night at Wednesday’s Democratic debate that he’s resorted to tweeting out hopelessly doctored footage making him look sharp and the five other candidates as dolty and unprepared as Bloomberg actually was

GO FUG YOURSELFGood luck un-seeing Kendall Jenner as Gumby in this green outfit. She also looks like a moon base CEO in a mod-era B-movie, something that kind of describes her public role in the Kardashian family these days

THE BLASTThere’s a movie called Dream Horse coming out in a couple of months, and honestly I’m only including this early look at the trailer in the links post as a reminder to everyone reading…

LAINEY GOSSIP…that it is actually a movie about a real-life horse, and not a dramatization of the story of the French soccer player who needed twelve stitches after an opponent bit his dick during a match. The biter has been suspended from playing for five years; the bitee was ordered to stay home from work for four days (which works out to one day per three stitches, and seems like not nearly enough time for a dick bite of such magnitude)

THE BLEMISHThe NFL is trying to cram two more games into the regular-season schedule — something the league has long desired — by taking the long view and proposing that the schedule first increase from sixteen games to seventeen

JEZEBELThe answer here is “No. No, this pair of Crocs modeled after fried chicken is not OK”

MY 600 LB LIFE Tracey Matthews today: Star explains show’s secrets as lawsuits multiply

We’ve got an intriguing update on My 600 Lb Life Tracey Matthews today, as the Season 5 star has pulled back the curtain on some of the show’s production tricks and contract details. Tracey’s tea comes at a particularly compelling time for My 600 Lb Life viewers, considering that four cast members are now suing production company Megalomedia for negligence and an assortment of broken promises.

EXCLUSIVE My 600 Lb Life’s Gina Krasley first Season 8 cast member to sue Megalomedia for negligence

Just a couple of weeks after Starcasm broke the story of her alleged involvement in a series of adult videos, we’ve got a Gina Krasley update of a different sort. Starcasm can exclusively reveal that the controversial My 600 Lb Life star is now the fourth cast member to sue Megalomedia, the show’s production company, for negligence and “breaching their duty of reasonable care.”

Chip and Joanna’s new show is filming; Magnolia Network to launch October 4th

If you weren’t already, you can let yourself get excited. The last few weeks have seen a slow, steady drip of news about Magnolia Network, the Gaines’ newest venture. But now we’ve gotten confirmation about the real deal: Chip and Joanna’s new show, which appears to have started production in earnest! Keep reading for the details!

MY 600 LB LIFE Maja Radanovic now the third cast member to sue Megalomedia (Exclusive)

When we interviewed Tony Buzbee, the Texas attorney behind the Bonner family’s gross negligence lawsuit against My 600 Lb Life production company Megalomedia, he told us to “expect” similar suits very soon. Buzbee’s words are becoming reality — we’ve just learned of the My 600 Lb Life Maja Radanovic lawsuit, now the third overall to claim negligence and outright lies on Megalomedia’s part.

LINKS Joe Gorga’s house flips, Princess Beatrice’s wedding reception, ModelLand mystery…

REALITY TEAIf you’re thinking that Joe Gorga’s house flips maybe seem a bit shady, you’re not alone. It seems at least one person has already called the RHONJ star for including a photo of her house in a montage of homes Joe claimed he’d flipped, saying that not only did Joe have nothing to do with the residence, but it hadn’t actually been flipped at all. Looks like you’ll have to find something better to do with that $297

CELEBITCHYSo, while Princess Beatrice will indeed get to have her wedding reception *at* Buckingham Palace, it turns out the reception won’t actually be inside the building. Per a new report, Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi’s May wedding will be capped off by a lovely party inside a “posh tent” in the Palace gardens

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPTyra Banks, who has been talking about starting a model-inspired theme park called ModelLand for over a year now, says she’s definitely going to open this thing this year. A few details remain, though, like what exactly ModelLand is supposed to be — and, also, why

JEZEBEL“If my grandmother were around to see some of the looks at this year’s BRIT Awards, she would be wondering why Ellie Goulding stole her table cloth, threw it over her body and called it a dress”

THE BLASTIn a new interview with the New York Times, Ben Affleck called his divorce from Jennifer Garner his “biggest regret,” which is not surprising; what is is that Ben didn’t immediately follow that with “Although Batman v Superman is a close second”

VOXThe good news is we still shouldn’t call coronavirus a pandemic. The bad news is the two questions scientists need to be able to answer about coronavirus in order to better understand and define it are really really scary

DLISTEDRIP Ja’net DuBois: the Good Times actress (and singer of “Movin’ On Up”) died in her sleep yesterday night at the age of 74

LAINEY GOSSIPIt’s always refreshing and a bit inspiring to see someone coming off an Oscar win go with even more hustle than they did before

GO FUG YOURSELFAnya Taylor-Joy does indeed look fantastic in this dress-and-coat combo, and she totally seems like “she’s in some kind of Sex and the City reboot,” but her features are so sharp and striking that I have the hardest time seeing her as anything but Thomasin from The Witch

THE BLEMISHIn more shady news: an organizer is trying to Fyre Festival an alleged concert in Brazil, but super duper alleged headliner Steve Aoki would like you to know that despite appearing on promotional materials he was never booked and won’t be there
