THE BLEMISH – So apparently there was a bit of a Cardi B and Nicki Minaj brawl at New York Fashion Week, and Cardi came away from it “with no shoes and her ass hanging out” of her dress. According to eyewitnesses, Cardi somehow managed to hit herself in the head with her own shoe
VOX – In brawl news of a different sort, Serena Williams got into it with a ref over a controversial call at the US Open final. She wound up getting three penalties, losing the match (though she was well behind when the shouting started), and sparking a debate about men and women being treated differently in similar situations
DLISTED – Miss Michigan’s five-second introduction at the Miss America pageant was 1% about her and 99% about the Flint water crisis. Predictably, a bunch of people seem to wish she would shut up and stick to pageanting
LAINEY GOSSIP – Olivia Munn’s Predator co-stars are isolating her after she spoke out against a registered sex offender appearing in the movie and got his scene cut. This is the only time I can ever remember feeling the fallout from someone calling attention to a man who tried to lure a child over the internet is actually weirder and worse than the man’s crimes in the first place
JEZEBEL – Kanye is peddling $75 sweatshirts bearing artistic recreations of several of the adult film performers to be honored at this week’s P0rnhub Awards, for which Kanye is also the creative director. But none of the performers are getting any of that $75, and for this they are understandably upset
CELEBITCHY – Why is Kendall Jenner *really* taking this runway modeling season off?
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Victor Arroyo and Nicole Franzel from Big Brother 18 are engaged and look really happy together, congrats!
REALITY TV – “Quad Webb-Lunceford And Dr. Jackie Walters Spill The Tea On Watch What Happens Live”
THE BLAST – Paulie D wants Jersey Shore to stay on the air forever, a concept that maybe doesn’t seem as farfetched as it once did?
