LINKS! Lisa Vanderpump off RHOBH, Britney Spears evacuates, Jill Scott goes viral…

DLISTEDSeveral sources close to The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ production are claiming that Lisa Vanderpump is off RHOBH — apparently she’s hardly filmed for the new season, is refusing to show up, and is tired of being a punching bag for the other cast members

REALITY TEAIn Vanderpump-adjacent news, Pump Rules cast members Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright say between them they’ve lost 55 pounds in preparation for their upcoming wedding

THE BLASTThough Britney Spears’ mansion in Thousand Oaks CA is not in the mandatory evacuation zone, “she chose to play it safe” and has evacuated the area until the Woolsey fire can be brought under control

LAINEY GOSSIPIf you’ve seen Jill Scott’s name trending over the past couple of days but haven’t yet checked out why, this video will make it clear. (If you’re reading this at work, you probably want to make sure your office is clear first)

VOXIn a new interview, Donald Trump claimed that who isn’t a Republican votes by first voting, then going home to change clothes and coming back to their polling place to vote again. This is a good technique that works well only if you replace “voting” with “trick or treating”

JEZEBELSpeaking of the president, acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker was once the legal counselor for a company that patented a toilet with a “specially designed bowl to help well-endowed men avoid unwanted contact with porcelain or water.” So, yeah, a big dick toilet

CELEBITCHYEvidently celebrities are having a lot of sex in their showers, possibly because celebrity showers are much bigger and come with more seats and ledges than the showers of normal folk

THE BLEMISHMy favorite line in this article about Ashley Graham wearing a bra made of duct tape is also the helpful takeaway from this article: “Generally speaking, I would think that something that’s used for home repair shouldn’t be attached to your skin.”

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPArie Luyendyk Jr. and his fiancée Lauren Burnham are expecting their first child together, congrats! The baby is due in June and Lauren is already showing, so she’s had to have her dress altered ahead of her and Arie’s wedding this January

Kim and Kanye's firefighters 2

CELEBITCHYKim and Kanye have apparently earned their Hidden Hills neighbors’ undying love and respect after hiring a team of “private firefighters” to fight off the Woolsey wildfire right in their collective backyard

VOXMichelle Obama’s book Becoming is out, and is earning rave reviews. One thing few reviewers are talking about: How often Michelle takes the opportunity “to brutally drag her husband.” For the time she was his boss and he was late to his first day of work. For the time he wore a Miami Vice-style suit to happy hour. And for so many other things

REALITY TEAThomas Ravenel calling out anybody for any reason seems pretty dodgy at this point, but that hasn’t stopped him calling out Ashley Jacobs for trash-talking Thomas’ once and forever love Kathryn Dennis

JEZEBELCardi B has already made it clear that she won’t roll over in bed for less than $500,000. So we know the absolute bare minimum she’s getting paid to co-star as one of three judges on Rhythm & Flow, an upcoming Netflix series “aimed at finding the next breakout hip-hop star”

DLISTED“America is burning through plots, much like the California wildfires Trump tried to shoehorn into last week’s episode. CNN and their chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta have taken the unprecedented step of suing the President et al, in order to restore Jim’s access to the White House. They also hope to prevent the White House from revoking it again in the future.”

THE BLASTActress Paz de la Huerta says disgraced former producer Harvey Weinstein raped her in December of 2010 — and she’s taken her claims to court

JEZEBELChris Pine goes full frontal in his brand-new Netflix movie Outlaw King and at least one professional makeup and prosthetic artist is pretty sure what you see on screen is Pine’s real log

LAINEY GOSSIPGabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade had a baby girl via surrogate this weekend, congrats! Fortunately for everyone, the surprise announcement came with plenty of adorable photos

DLISTEDRIP Stan Lee: The creator of way more iconic comic book characters than you would ever expect to come from one brain died this morning at the age of 95

REALITY TEAThe Vanderpump Rules cast was not especially pleased when Keeping Up With The Kardashians won the People’s Choice Award for Reality Show of 2018

CELEBITCHYTwo weeks ago on SNL, Pete Davidson raised a stink by insulting Republican congressman-elect Dan Crenshaw’s appearance because the dude wears an eyepatch. So, this week, Crenshaw appeared alongside Davidson on “Weekend Update” and thoroughly roasted him

THE BLEMISHInstagram model Newsha Syeh is going minorly viral thanks to getting kicked out of the Louvre over the weekend for wearing a dress that one security guard apparently found too decadent for the museum. Take a look and judge for yourself

THE BLASTAudrina Patridge of The Hills has finally finished divorcing now-ex-husband Corey Bohan; here are the nasty details

VOXEvidently Tide’s new “Eco-box” looks so much like boxed wine that people are joking about drinking it when the new package ships next January. I know branding and marketing have poisoned my well against this particular meme because when I see the bright orange-and-blue box I just think “This is a box full of Tide”

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPTori Bates of Bringing Up Bates just gave birth to her first child — a baby boy, whose name is Robert Ellis Smith IV but who will apparently go by “Kade.” There are already a few photos of the young lad, so check those out and offer some well-wishes to mother & son

Christmas Abbott arrested 1

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPBig Brother 19 star Christmas Abbott was arrested in Florida on a charge of felony criminal mischief. She’s said to have used her car as a battering ram, driving it into her baby daddy’s side piece’s car last August — while eight months pregnant:

THE BLASTChristmas had allegedly bullied Samantha Morse for months before the incident, after which Morse tried to get a restraining order against Christmas. But here are some photos of what $10,000 in damage from a car battering ram looks like

VOXDonald Trump decided to try and out-spin a bad election night by forcing Jeff Sessions out as Attorney General. Which means Matthew Whitaker, Sessions’ temporary replacement, is for now in charge of overseeing the Mueller investigation — something he’s decried in the recent past

JEZEBELThe president also re-doubled (tripled?) down on his attacks on the media at a press conference where he called CNN reporter Jim Acosta a “rude, terrible person” and tried to have the microphone taken from him; later, he had Acosta banned from the White House

THE BLEMISHIn news that’s lighter spiritually if not literally, Swedish supermodel Elsa Hosk is going to wear this year’s jeweled underwear at the Victoria’s Secret fashion show

CELEBITCHYBenedict Cumberbatch, who voices the Grinch in this year’s remake of Dr. Seuss’ classic children’s story, is doing his damndest to look eerily like the character in these green carpet photos. I know the Grinch didn’t have a mustache, but something about Cumberbatch’s looks decidedly…boo-hoo

DLISTEDEmma Thompson is now officially a Dame, after being Damed (not the actual term, but if knights can be knighted then Dames should be Damed) by Prince William at Buckingham Palace. Emma, knowing she’d be standing rather a lot that day and displaying the intelligence you’d like to see in titled people, wore sneakers to the event

LAINEY GOSSIPIt’s getting harder and harder to tell if Justin Theroux’s role on Parks and Recreation was a wink at his own inflated persona or a glimpse into the future

VOXThe 2018 midterm elections were yesterday, and kind of a lot happened! Here’s a rundown of the results — including a look at some of the likeliest possible investigations into Donald Trump

JEZEBELAs far as election night coverage goes, the glory of Steve Kornacki’s giddiness and Midwestern accent would not be denied. (I know he’s from Boston, but give his coverage a listen)

CELEBITCHYIt’s taken way longer than it should have, but People Magazine finally named Idris Elba the Sexiest Man Alive. Early rumors suggest that they’re going to do it again next year, to make it up to Idris for stringing him along since approximately 2011

LAINEY GOSSIPPeople‘s choice means, of course, that early 2018 favorite Michael B. Jordan is *not* the Sexiest Man Alive for 2018. In case you thought he was robbed, here’s a photo gallery of Michael looking every inch a Sexy Man for your viewing pleasure

THE BLASTReal Housewives of Orange County star Gina Kirschenheiter is super ready to be divorced from her estranged husband Matthew and is seeking financial support from him

REALITY TEA – Speaking of Real Housewives, RHOD star Cary Deuber says the cast members are “fighting for the sake of fighting” and blamed at least some part of that on their “alcohol-fueled” ways. And thus does reality TV go on

DLISTEDBurger King is shading Kanye on Twitter for some dumb-yet-understandable tweets of his and while the whole thing is petty as can be, BK’s social media people also throw some good shade

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPJon Gosselin has filed for full custody of he and Kate’s 14-year-old son Collin

THE BLEMISHI would have sworn that the last Deadpool movie just came out a few months ago, and I was right: Fox is “squeezing the last few cents out of the X-Men franchise before Marvel buys it” by re-releasing a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 next month

Alec Baldwin assault arrest 2

CELEBITCHYAlec Baldwin was arrested over the weekend and charged with assault after allegedly punching another man in the face in a dispute over perhaps the most Manhattan thing to possibly fight for: a parking space

THE BLEMISHSports Illustrated swimsuit model Kate Wasley took to social media to show how easy it is to photoshop an image for consumer approval (and how quickly one can do it). If you were still laboring under the delusion that Instagram is basically the same thing as real life, you’re about to be disappointed

DLISTED“Justin Bieber got a face tattoo in honor of Hailey Baldwin” is a great headline, but, because his face is the more valuable of those two things, it turns out the tattoo is…pretty hard to spot

VOXIn case you hadn’t heard, Election Day is tomorrow. Here’s a handy dandy list of the hours the polls will be open in every single US state

THE BLASTKeeping Up With The Kardashians finally got to the part in its own news cycle when Tristan cheated on Khloe. Which means the show is seven months behind reality, in case you’re keeping track

JEZEBELHot cocoa M&Ms are a thing this year and I’m calling it now: By this time next year, hot cocoa-flavored stuff will be as omnipresent as pumpkin-flavored stuff used to be every autumn

REALITY TEA“Reality Star Sightings: Brandi Glanville, The Vanderpump Rules Men, Shannon Beador, Kelly Dodd and More!”

LINKS! Robert Mueller smear campaign fail, Real Haunting of Hill House, Kanye’s mental health…

Robert Mueller smear campaign fail

VOXThis Robert Mueller smear campaign fail is almost too stupid to believe, but give it a try anyway: Apparently a 20-year-old troll and a Republican conspiracy theorist teamed up to try and pay women to say they’d been sexually assaulted by Robert Mueller. They did a paper-thin job of covering themselves and then spilled their own hot tea on Twitter, and now the FBI is investigating them

THE BLASTThe real Haunting of Hill House mansion is really haunted, say the couple who own the Georgia estate. (The house is also only about 16 years old, so the “4 or 5 ghosts” who haunt it must be pretty fresh)

DLISTEDKanye’s team is concerned about his mental health and is trying to get Jenifer Lewis from black-ish in a room with him to talk about getting professional help

JEZEBELBritish woman Amethyst Realm, who made a name for herself last year by claiming she’s slept with over 20 ghosts, now says she’s engaged to a ghost she met in Australia this winter. Amethyst also says she and this ghost joined the Mile High Club together on the flight back home, so, double congrats, I guess

CELEBITCHYTiffany Haddish ditched the worst date she ever went on by telling the dude — who “stank” — that she had to go to the bathroom and then just ditching him in a movie theater. She now uses credit scores to decide whom she’ll date

LAINEY GOSSIPHalloween is kind of a pain in the ass, unless you want to go full Ron Swanson and just have one Halloween costume that you wear every time you need it. Anyway here’s Katy Perry dressed as a sloth and looking generally like she lost a bet

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPFinally, for your holiday amusement, here are nine amazine reality TV-themed pumpkins. The Kim Kardashian pumpkin kind of looks like a slowly disintegrating religious idol, Happy Halloween!

LINKS! Twitter dislikes likes, Kanye’s Blexit attempt, ‘Heathers’ canceled again…

Twitter dislikes likes 2

DLISTEDIt turns out that Twitter dislikes likes on its site and would maybe prefer them to disappear forever. At least, that’s the latest gossip from co-founder Jack Dorsey himself (and that’s Dorsey in the photo above). This move seems like simple trollery from the site best known for its milions of constantly trolling users

CELEBITCHYEver one to capitalize on himself, Kanye West has launched a line of ‘Blexit’ T-shirts encouraging a mass black exit from the Democratic Party. Not that the original Brexit is going so well, but how did Kanye not call this idea ‘Blackxit’?

VOXHeathers, a TV show about a high school shooting that is a remake of a movie about a school bombing (and a bunch of other murders besides), has been pulled from the airwaves for the second time following the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting. Given that there’s approximately one mass shooting per day in this country, it seems unlikely the 2018 version of Heathers will ever air

THE BLEMISHSince the controversy over Apu has not really died down over the past couple of years, it seems The Simpsons‘ producers are now considering simply dropping the character entirely
