LINKS Gigi Hadid pregnant, Beardless Joe Manganiello, Summer and coronavirus…

CELEBITCHYThough it has yet to be confirmed by the supermodel herself, news of Gigi Hadid pregnant has spread across the tabloids like the gossip wildfire it is. “Family sources” have shared that Gigi is apparently around 20 weeks along, so it looks like she got pregnant almost immediately after getting back with baby daddy Zayn Malik late last year

DLISTEDSofia Vergara’s husband Joe Manganiello has shaved his omnipresent beard and does indeed look like a different person — but does this disprove the long-held fact that a man looks better with a beard than without?

VOXThere’s a whole bunch of misinformation out there about how hot weather will make everything better pandemic-wise. According to scientists and other people who know more than the hive mind, “summer weather may make the outdoors a little safer, but it won’t be enough to quash coronavirus on its own”

MY 600 LB LIFE Destinee Lashaee update: New lawsuit claims filming ‘so painful’ she considered suicide

The latest Destinee Lashaee update doubles as the ninth lawsuit filed against My 600 Lb Life production company Megalomedia — and it contains some of the most disturbing allegations yet made about the producers. According to Destinee’s lawsuit (also filed under her given name, Matthew Ventress), filming for her episode was so stressful due to the producers’ demands that at one point Destinee threatened suicide.

LINKS Ashley Ross dead, Jeff Goldblum dragged, Sussex tell-all…

THE BLASTRIP to Little Women: Atlanta star Ms. Minnie — real name Ashley Ross — who died early this morning from injuries she suffered in a hit-and-run. The Ashley Ross dead news was confirmed by the reality star’s Instagram account; so far, it looks like neither Lifetime nor the rest of Little Women: Atlanta‘s cast have yet responded publicly to the shocking news

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPFormer Duck Dynasty personality Willie Robertson had his home shot up in a drive-by this weekend.

JEZEBELQuarantine is starting to play hell with celebrity appearance: “Because botox requires upkeep every three to four months, it’s possible that some celebrities will emerge with looser faces than previously seen…Jezebel spoke with four surgeons, most of whom agreed that in lieu of injectables, at-home skincare is becoming the new focus of face maintenance”

THE BLEMISHKristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler are getting divorced because Kristin says Jay is “guilty of such inappropriate marital conduct as renders further cohabitation unsafe and improper.” That could mean any number of things, but I’m putting my money on “Jay cheated during their monthlong beach vacation and potentially exposed his family to coronavirus as a result”

LINKS Maya Hawke’s Nylon cover, Kelly Dodd apologizes, Coronavirus misconceptions…

CELEBITCHYMaya Hawke’s Nylon cover story features the 21-year-old daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke “mourning for her life” and feeling like her parents’ generation “really f*cked us” by having everything “so easy” and ruining the planet as a result. Other than baby boomers needing an ample share of the blame, show me the lie

REALITY TEARHOC star Kelly Dodd backtracked pretty hard with her apology for saying the coronavirus (and swine flu and other pandemics) are just “God’s way of thinning the herd”

VOXOn that note, here’s a helpful reminder, in case you, like certain state governors, forgot this important coronavirus-related detail: People can be asymptomatic and still carry (and spread!) coronavirus around like a tick in an unchecked skin fold

LINKS Chelsea Handler’s bathtub surprise, One Direction reunion?, SNL At Home…

THE BLASTIt’s no new thing to see Chelsea Handler naked (or at least topless), so Chelsea Handler’s bathtub surprise is less the fact that she’s sharing photos and video of herself lounging in her tub completely in the buff and more that Chelsea is using her nudity to promote a few quarantine book reviews. Also, the tub is empty, which combined with the photographer just seems like a recipe for double discomfort?

LAINEY GOSSIPApparently One Direction is maybe going to reunite at some point this year. 4/5 of the group looked to have been on board, with Zayn Malik the only holdout, but now it looks like Zayn might be on board? Plus, all the old One Direction social media accounts and web sites are mysteriously active once more

CELEBITCHYThis is the only positive review of SNL At Home that I’ve seen. Every other site seemed to think it landed somewhere on a spectrum that began with “Awkward as Hell” and ended with “Hot Garbage Unfit for Lorne Michaels’ Graveside Compost Pile”

VOXEvidently if we want America to “reopen” we’re going to need to conduct Covid-19 tests on a massive scale in order to make sure that healthy people are still healthy and find out when sick people got sick. “Massive” in this context means possibly as many as 35 million tests per day. As of yesterday, the US had conducted just shy of three million tests total

DLISTEDBen Affleck and Ana de Armas did not take an Easter break from their usual pap stroll; a couple of days after they both wore face masks (once), Ana put on what’s being called a “Gucci hazmat suit” and what I think looks like a designer Ghostbusters outfit. The red stripe on the breast pocket is a wonderful touch, even if it does clash with their purple dog leash

THE BLEMISHFinally, it seems convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein wasn’t terrible to women exclusively during his time as one of the most powerful executives in Hollywood. Kevin Smith just revealed that Weinstein kept Clerks royalties from him for upwards of seven years, and that Smith had to have Weinstein’s books audited before getting any cash. This is not to say that being a huge dick about money is as bad as committing rape — it is very much not! — but rather to point out that we’ll likely be hearing about what a huge dick Harvey Weinstein was to people for a long, long time

Tory Lanez drops new album ‘The New Toronto 3’ ahead of Quarantine Radio comeback
