VOXYesterday, New York became the fifteenth state to legalize the sale & growth of marijuana. I’m sure the legalization bill’s passage and Andrew Cuomo’s quick signature had nothing to do with the multiple claims of sexual misconduct against the Governor, or the allegations that he covered up COVID deaths in nursing homes. Anyway, edibles!

LINKS Jen Shah’s tantrum, Madonna’s lingerie counterpunch, Lil Nas X as Satan…

REALITY TEAIt’s been almost a full month since leaked audio of Jen Shah’s tantrum kept the Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star in headlines despite Season 1 having aired.

GO FUG YOURSELFI can’t stop staring at the lead photo of Joan Allen wearing a dramatic-as-hell necklace long enough to be a cruise ship lifeline at the 2001 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards.

LAINEY GOSSIPThere’s a new Suicide Squad movie and it has a trailer and everything, except it’s also basically a reboot of the franchise DC tried to kick start with the first Suicide Squad movie back in 2016. So…anybody up for a do-over, I guess?
