LINKS Dorinda Medley returning?, Kim Kardashian naked & unafraid, Child COVID vaccine…

REALITY TEAAll these rumors about Dorinda Medley returning to Real Housewives of New York probably have nothing to do with the fact that her book is coming out soon. (If it’s half as entertaining as Sharon Stone’s, we’re in for a treat!) To be fair to her publisher, Dorinda signed up to write a memoir just before getting fired from the show — so a lot of the rumors are probably Simon & Schuster plants

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPKim Kardashian says one of the best things about her impending divorce from Kanye West is he no longer criticizes her for walking around naked in her living room. If we knew Kim took a page from the Alanis Morissette Guide to Life, we’d have predicted their divorce much sooner

CELEBITCHYRepublican Congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida is defending himself — sort of — against a report that he paid for the travel of 17-year-old while also having sex with that 17-year-old.
