LINKS Cardi B Woman of the Year, Megan Thee Stallion topless, Eboni K. Williams hype…

DLISTEDIt comes as no surprise to learn about the Cardi B Woman of the Year accolade from Billboard; thanks to “WAP” this was arguably Cardi’s biggest year yet. But it also feels like we’ve said that each of the last few years, so maybe her huge star is still expanding?

THE BLASTMegan Thee Stallion waited until Tory Lanez’s not guilty plea to share a topless pic on Instagram

REALITY TEA“Eboni K. Williams Says Dorinda Medley Congratulated Her On Joining Real Housewives Of New York

CELEBITCHYApparently Camilla, Dutchess of Cornwall, is a huge fan of The Crown and plans to watch it “with a glass of red wine” and her “wonderful sense of humor,” making her exactly one member of the royal family about whom such things can be said

LAINEY GOSSIPAnd on that note, enjoy “the five filthiest reads in The Crown season four” (#3 seems like a pretty good summary of the show itself?)

JEZEBEL“Per Bravo’s shady montage scenes, RHOP’s newest cast member Dr. Wendy Osefo has brought up her education a fair degree, pun intended. But what is it about Osefo’s four degrees that gets under everyone’s skin—and what does it say about acceptable housewife behavior?”

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPLauren Comeau is “no closer” to forgiving Javi Marroquin for trying to have sex with Kailyn Lowry in the parking lot of a gas station. Maybe she would have forgiven him by now if he hadn’t already cheated on her in one part of their house while she was asleep in another part

LINKS Lil Wayne gun charges, Lindsey Graham pressure, A tale of two princes…

THE BLASTEvidently Weezy himself didn’t know the Lil Wayne gun charges were coming: Just hours before he was arrested for possession of both drugs and a firearm from an incident last December, Wayne was hamming it up on Instagram with girlfriend Denise Bidot

JEZEBELGeorgia Republicans have their knives out for each other — a week after the state’s two senators called for Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger to resign because Raffensperger didn’t throw the election hard enough for the party, Raffensperger now claims Lindsey “Spine” Graham asked whether it was possible for the SoS to simply discard thousands of absentee ballots

CELEBITCHYIt seems Prince William is a touch upset by the latest season of The Crown, otherwise known as The Season With All The Relevant Modern Gossip. Don’t look now, but a member of the British royal family is angry over the past being depicted in a less-than-flattering light

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPIn other royal news, Queen Elizabeth’s heart was allegedly “broken” by Prince Harry’s decision to move to America with his bride. I can’t imagine why Harry and Meaghan didn’t want to stay in England and deal with…*gestures at everything*

REALITY TEAFormer Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville wants it known once and for all that she did not have a threesome involving co-star Kim Richards. (Though Brandi did acknowledge that Kim’s “30lb cat” sometimes sleeps on her chest, which kind of sounds like more than just a euphemism?)

LINKS Trump conceded, The Crown red carpet pics, Jason Momoa buzz…

VOXTo everyone’s surprise, Trump conceded the 2020 presidential election yesterday (on Twitter, of course), before everyone pointed out what he said and he tried to take it back. Of course, America’s current president acknowledged Joe Biden’s win in a sentence where he also claimed the election was rigged…but it’s a start

DLISTEDTo no one’s surprise, it turns out Lil Pump — who you may remember endorsed America’s current president a couple of weeks before the election, and was then referred to at a rally as “Lil Pimp” — did not vote in the 2020 election and in fact is not registered to vote at all

CELEBITCHYA week after having a weird-but-entertaining food meltdown on Twitter, Alton Brown would like you to know he is sorry for having a post-election meltdown on Twitter, during which he tried to joke about a coming American Holocaust, whether Americans would get to pick which concentration camps they get sent to, and how designer the uniforms will be

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPWhite House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is about three lies short of tying herself into a literal knot avoiding or obfuscating questions about the current president’s dwindling attempts at overturning the 2020 presidential election (the one the current president lost)

LAINEY GOSSIPEmma Corrin’s outfit from The Crown Season 4 at-home premiere — a custom Miu Miu — is “is fire and ice and bombs and all of it and everything”

GO FUG YOURSELF“Assuming People’s Sexiest Man Alive isn’t Gritty, or Steve Kornacki, or anyone else causing Twitter to erupt in the past week, Jason Momoa has a pretty good shot. His Super Bowl ad was one of the best. He’s in a ridiculous Apple+ show, See, that got a second season…he’s in Dune, and everyone else from Dune is getting a lot of cover attention right now; he’s doing an Aquaman sequel and a Justice League TV show of some ilk; he’s cultivated something of a He-Man With a Big Mushy Heart aura; and he was reigning champ John Legend’s suggestion”

REALITY TEAAfter suffering a miscarriage this past summer, former Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay has revealed that she’s pregnant again. Not only that, but we’ve just gotten a Scheana Shay gender reveal — complete with the requisite high-quality magazine photoshoot. Scheana says she’s “just excited to be having a healthy baby”

CELEBITCHYAccording to at least two former senior White House aides — one of whom went on record — Melania Trump considers her marriage to America’s current president “over” and is ready to file divorce paperwork the second Joe Biden (who won the 2020 presidential election) assumes power from Melania’s still-husband (who lost)

JEZEBELMaria Bakalova, who plays Borat’s teenage daughter in the now-infamous sequel, won’t come right out and say if she thinks Rudy Giuliani was masturbating while in the room with her. But she does say that Sacha Baron Cohen, who broke up Bakalova and Giuliani’s scene, arrived “just in time”

VOXAnd speaking of our current political situation: there are two big differences between what’s happening with the 2020 presidential election hangover and what happened in 2000. One is that the 2000 election was extremely close in one state, whereas 2020 is close-but-not-recount-close in five states. The other is that the current president is only “challenging handfuls of votes” — literally a few hundred in total — despite having lost in those five states by a combined total of about 131,000

LINKS Candiace Dillard’s death wish, Twitter’s White-Black Gay Guy, White House despair…

REALITY TEAYou may recall that a few months ago, RHOP star Candiace Dillard spewed some hate at a DC-area blogger who sided with Monique in the pair’s fight. Apparently, Candiace knew that the blogger suffered from several medical issues, including seemingly serious kidney problems. And in a video response to his post on the fight, she said she hoped he “dropped dead.” Well, Candiace Dillard’s death wish has come true, because the blogger — whose name was Khyle Paylor — recently died. Candiace has yet to comment on Khyle’s death or her original comments

JEZEBELAt first, it looked like the white Republican politician from Pennsylvania saying he was a “black gay guy” on Twitter had just forgotten to log into his burner account first. But then it turned out that the alleged burner account — which really did look fake as hell — belongs to a real black gay guy? And the black gay guy is also Patti LaBelle’s son? Twitter has gotten even weirder since the election

CELEBITCHYIt looks like the White House is still standing in name only. Apparently even the most die-hard staffers for America’s current president know he lost the election and that his legal challenges couldn’t stand up to a stiff breeze. The president himself remains in denial

THE BLASTBritney Spears’ mother, Lynne Spears, says she agrees with Britney that Jamie Spears “should be removed as co-conservator of the singer’s estate.” Lynne’s lawyer has said as much in court in defense of Britney

LAINEY GOSSIPSo it looks like Dominic West is exactly as horrible a guy as everyone suspected. Weeks after news broke of his affair with his The Affair co-star Lily James — and the subsequent total sham photo shoot West cajoled his wife, Catherine Fitzgerald, into posing alongside him for — the couple’s marriage appears to be over. Catherine is apparently dropping Dominic like the skeleton of a bird she fished out of her dog’s mouth thinking it was a stick because “Lily means more to [Dominic] than just a fling.” I was less disgusted by the bird corpse

LINKS Jen Shah RHOSLC gossip, Erika Jayne divorce, Trump keeps losing…

REALITY TEAReal Housewives of Salt Lake City star Jen Shah is already stepping forward as the shading grace of Bravo’s newest Real Housewives franchise. According to the Jen Shah RHOSLC gossip, the “plastic surgery scene in Utah is on fire,” and anyone in her strata who says they haven’t had work done is straight-up lying

THE BLASTIn other Real Housewives news, recently divorcing RHOBH star Erika Jayne has asked for “temporary support” from her soon-to-be ex-husband Thomas Girardi, and also claimed she’s “unaware of the full value” of the couple’s assets

JEZEBELThe Republican Party is lining up behind America’s current president in trying to undermine confidence in the 2020 presidential election — which election said current president lost, to Joe Biden. Biden’s first day as President of the United States will be January 20th, 2021

VOXI didn’t know it was possible to explain how Joe Biden will “fix Trump’s global mess” in just 600 words, but here’s Vox getting it done

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPRemember how Lil Wayne was one of a slew of rappers who endorsed America’s current president very late in the election cycle because they all valued money over people? Well, Lil Wayne’s daughter has something to say about her father’s decision. It’s a four-letter word, and it rhymes with “thumb”

CELEBITCHYDid you know Joe and Jill Biden have two dogs, and that one of them is a rescue? I didn’t, but I’m excited because now we can have dogs back in the White House!

LINKS Biden Harris victory, Flip or Flop controversy, Andy Cohen on #PumpRules…

CELEBITCHYIt 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

VOXKamala 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

JEZEBELReturning 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

DLISTEDCNN 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 GOSSIPJoe 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 ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPFlip or Flop‘s Christina Anstead has some words for people who’ve accused her of being an absentee mother during her divorce from Ant.
