Michael Cohen vs. Donald Trump 2

LINKS! Michael Cohen vs. Donald Trump, Fifty Shades of Michelle Obama, Dutchess Meghan insulted…

VOXMichael Cohen vs. Donald Trump, already the biggest political boxing match of our time, just went into a new round with a potentially bombshell report claiming Trump personally ordered Cohen to lie to Congress about Trump’s ties to real estate development in Moscow

JEZEBELMichelle Obama’s Becoming is the best-selling book in the country, and has been for the longest continuous stretch since Fifty Shades of Gray seven years ago

CELEBITCHYSome commoner went full Love Actually and called Meghan Markle a “fat lady” — to her face. This happened during a royal meet-and-greet, and Meghan’s response was way more tactful than any six-months-pregnant woman’s ever has reason to be

THE BLASTNBA All-Star and Kendall Jenner ex-boyfriend Blake Griffin has settled the nine-figure lawsuit his baby mama Brynn Camerson filed after Blake left her — and their two children — “cash-strapped and homeless”

LAINEY GOSSIPMiley Cyrus really did sound fantastic at the Chris Cornell tribute concert the other night

THE BLEMISHOn the one hand, I’m not surprised that high-level employees of Mariah Carey allegedly pee on some of the lower-level help; on the other hand…nope, I’m just not surprised all around

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPThe new season of MTV’s The Challenge drops next month, and here’s the complete cast

REALITY TEATeresa Giudice’s daughter Milania got The Real Housewives of New Jersey to air her debut hip hop track on this week’s episode, and got Fetty Wap to appear at her listening party

DLISTEDIt seems that for the last few years Robbie Williams and his next door neighbor Jimmy Page have been embroiled in a rich person feud involving home remodeling for the last few years. The real takeaway from all this is that Page can apparently only conjure the dark arts in which he’s dabbled for years when onstage, and not to silence trolling neighbors

LINKS! Cardi B on Trump, Miley and Liam expecting, SOTU shutdown…

Cardi B on Trump 1

CELEBITCHYNo reaction to the government shutdown and the real consequences it’s having for people has resonated quite as much as Cardi B on Trump. Her take — complete with colorful, Cardi-familiar language, went viral, because that is what Cardi does; the more fun part is all the Democratic politicians worrying about whether they should share the video

JEZEBELMiley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are said to be expecting a baby girl later this year, and will raise her in Australia near Liam’s family. Miley took to Twitter to deny the gossip…which is exactly what you’d expect her to do

VOXThe constitution requires the president to give a State of the Union address of some kind, but Nancy Pelosi is outplaying Trump to make sure it doesn’t happen in prime time so long as the government is still shut down

LAINEY GOSSIPJustin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin have reportedly set a date for their actual wedding ceremony (they got married last year, but it was just in judge’s chambers)

DLISTEDWhen Katy Perry was 12 years old, she was suspended from school for having sex with a tree and pretending it was Tom Cruise. According to all the gossip about Tom Cruise, a tree would probably be a livelier partner

REALITY TEA“Jennifer Aydin Tells Margaret Josephs “I Don’t Relate To People Who Have Affairs With Married People” On Tonight’s Real Housewives of New Jersey Episode”

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPThe Situation from Jersey Shore has officially begun his eight-month prison sentence on tax evasion charges. But he’s determined to keep his fans updated on all things Gym, Tan, Laundry while inside

THE BLEMISHSpider Man: Far From Home now has a trailer. It’s coming out on July 5th. It is the 412th major Hollywood Spider Man movie to be released in the last decade

THE BLASTNo kink shaming, but thanks to Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna’s ongoing lawsuit, we now know that Rob likes to be scratched during sex

LINKS! Jeff Bezos divorce drama, Pete Davidson’s dick returns, Alicia Keys doing the Grammys…

Jeff Bezos divorce drama 2

CELEBITCHYThe richest man in the world is “madly in love” with his mistress-turned-public girlfriend, and the feeling is mutual, so it sounds like the Jeff Bezos divorce drama is only getting started. Bezos’ PR team got a gushy article into People Magazine, which isn’t surprising; what is is that it kind of makes Bezos look like a douche who simply up and decided to move on from his wife. All of this is to say that the likelihood those dick pics of his get leaked just went up tremendously

THE BLEMISHNow Pete Davidson is trying to downplay his allegedly big dick, joking that Ariana Grande only said it was big so that any future women Pete got with would be disappointed. To me, this all sounds like a lot of Pete protesting too much — “Oh, my dick? I mean, it’s not *that* big; here, let me show you…”

DLISTEDThe Oscars are going host-free, but the Grammys have got their MC: Alicia Keys is hosting on February 10th, and she’ll be the first woman to do so in fourteen years. (Queen Latifah was the last, in 2005 — too long for sure, but still a tough act to follow)

THE BLASTDonald Trump hosted the College Football National Champions Clemson and served them a ton of cold fast food; he tweeted about it and misspelled “hamburgers”; Burger King promptly mocked Trump’s misspelling; absolutely everything about this story is an embarrassment

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPDog The Bounty Hunter is returning to TV with a new show called Dog’s Most Wanted for WGN America. And Dog’s wife Beth, who’s been battling throat cancer since it returned last autumn, will join him on the show

REALITY TEAEvery time a reality TV star accuses the show’s production of manipulating events, either during filming or in the editing room, I can’t help but roll my eyes. Making things look different than they actually are is the entire point of reality TV, and has been since forever. That said, Vanderpump Rules‘ Ariana Madix was at least entertaining while doing so on Twitter

LAINEY GOSSIPI didn’t know a third Bad Boys movie was coming out, but it’s actually filming in Atlanta right now. Will Smith and Martin Lawrence are both back. And Michael Bay isn’t directing. So maybe this sequel will at least be really fun?

JEZEBELIt was already a dick-heavy links post today, so enjoy one more tumescence for good measure: “This 1748 Erotic Novel Sure Can Describe a Dick!”

LINKS! Chris Pratt engaged, Kanye defends R. Kelly, Drake’s Vegas residency…

Chris Pratt engaged 2

CELEBITCHYEveryone out there who figured we’d see Chris Pratt engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger by Christmas 2018, you were only a few weeks off. Chris popped the question to Katherine at some point over the holidays, because they’ve now announced their engagement and she’s sporting a ring fit for a Hollywood Wife

DLISTEDAll Kanye really wanted to do was drop a thinly veiled defense of himself and his ever-shifting, ever-sh!tty beliefs — but what he actually did was defend R. Kelly, with what has to be the worst timing in music history

THE BLASTDrake has apparently agreed to a multi-year Vegas residency. It’s only for a “minimum” of ten shows per year for an undisclosed number of years, but honestly? The $10 million fee seems kind of low for him

REALITY TEAAn employee at Lindsay Lohan’s Mykonos nightclub claims she’s more of a “hardass” than Lisa Vanderpump, for whom the employee has not worked. Nevertheless, this story will probably go through at least one gossip cycle, so hats off to the employee for pouring good tea

THE BLEMISHGod damn it Louis CK

LAINEY GOSSIPHere’s the latest abomination from outrage sensation Logan Paul

JEZEBEL“Mining what appears to be weeks of behind-the-scenes footage of the festival’s conception and brutal failure, Chris Smith’s new documentary Fyre is an incredible deep-dive into how the bumbling, dweebish frat boy in businessman’s clothing McFarland torpedoed his festival into a viral disaster.”

VOX“Ever wake up to a numb, dead arm? Here’s what’s happening.”

Jeff Bezos dick pics 1

LINKS! Jeff Bezos dick pics, Danielle Staub’s wedding ring, Meghan Markle’s regrets…

JEZEBELJeff Bezos apparently sent dick pics to his mistress — and they’re now in possession of at least one tabloid. So we can all rest assured that if his divorce saga gets ugly enough, the Jeff Bezos dick pics will be unleashed upon the world by whichever party stands to benefit the most from the “unsparing close-up” shot going public

REALITY TEAOn Watch What Happens Live, Danielle Staub confirmed that she sold Marty Caffrey’s ring to pay for her divorce from him, though that was actually the least surprising moment on the show

THE BLEMISHIt’s now being reported that Meghan Markle finds being a royal “incredibly stressful” and is “miserable” in general. Based on what little I know about British life in general and the royal family in particular, it sounds like she’s got it exactly right

THE BLASTCardi B got served in the lawsuit stemming from the fight she got in at last year’s Met Gala while walking onto the set of the net Netflix show she’s filming. And there’s video

VOXThe government shutdown means no one is staffing the still-open National Parks, so naturally people have taken to crapping everywhere, spraying graffiti on natural monuments austere enough to make a teenager blush, and chopping down trees

LAINEY GOSSIPLeonardo DiCaprio and his new-seeming girlfriend Camila Morrone have been together for an entire year? Are we absolutely sure she wasn’t replaced with yet another younger version at some point? Has Leo been with one woman this long since before Camila was born?

CELEBITCHYMandy Moore’s very good dog Jackson is at home and recovering nicely after needing emergency, middle-of-the-night surgery because he ate an entire tennis ball

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP‘Counting On’ Star Jessa Seewald Reveals Her Sister Jana Duggar’s Current Relationship Status After Jana (Finally) Joins Instagram

DLISTEDMinor league baseball player Tim Tebow is engaged to Miss Universe 2017 Demi-Leigh Nel-Peters, but the real story is what he reportedly said to her as he put the ring on her finger

LINKS! Dorit Kemsley’s money woes, Kate Mara pregnant, ‘Made In Staten Island’ backlash…

Dorit Kemsley's money woes 1

THE BLASTDorit Kemsley’s money woes don’t look like they’ll be over anytime soon — her husband Paul is being sued over a $1.2 million loan he made seven years ago and has yet to repay any of. And the RHOBH star’s husband is still struggling to pay off nearly $4 million in casino debt

JEZEBELKate Mara revealed she’s pregnant to Emily Blunt while the two of them were waiting for the bathroom at the Golden Globes. The trigger? Blunt noted that Mara’s breasts seemed bigger than normal

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPThe Karen Gravano-produced Made In Staten Island will premiere on MTV next week over the objections of plenty of Staten Islanders who feel it panders to stereotypes. Jersey Shore residents would like them to kindly get in line

CELEBITCHYWhen the long-feared socialist uprising comes, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will have unwittingly positioned themselves as 21st century’s America’s answer to Marie Antoinette

THE BLEMISHChristian Bale is still getting sh!t for thanking Satan in his Golden Globes acceptance speech. But not from the Church of Satan itself, which applauded his invocation *and* managed to leave Dick Cheney’s name out of it

REALITY TEADisgraced ex-Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel says Kathryn Dennis’ drug use during her pregnancy is why their son has developmental issues. Thomas is on thin ice blaming anyone for anything, so it should be interesting to see how Kathryn responds

DLISTEDAshley Graham is right

VOXIt’s bad for folks’ vacations and national morale in general that the 418 sites in the National Parks System are closed for the duration of the government shutdown. But it’s also the first good thing for the environment that the Trump administration has done

LAINEY GOSSIPMaybe there have been other articles about Black Mirror: Bandersnatch written in a “Choose Your Own Gossip” format, but I haven’t seen them, so this one is by default the best one period

LINKS! Lisa Vanderpump vs. Kristen Doute, The Kominsky Method?, Kendall’s big flop…

Lisa Vanderpump vs. Kristen Doute 2

REALITY TEALisa Vanderpump vs. Kristen Doute was the main event during LVP’s Watch What Happens Live appearance, only Kristen had to respond to Lisa’s insults via Twitter since she wasn’t also on the show. WWHL should offer an in-picture live feed of the person most likely to get roasted by the person actually on the show, just for social media

JEZEBELOh thank God, I wasn’t the only person watching the Golden Globes who thought “The Kominsky Method? What the f*ck is that?” You could have told me it was a show about how there are so many TV shows that someone decided to just make one up and talk it up until it won awards and I would have believed you. (And now I wish that’s what it was actually about)

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPIt turns out that Kendall Jenner’s super big hush-hush life-altering secret is that she’s actually a paid spokesperson for a well-known brand of acne treatment creams whose name we won’t glorify by repeating it here. So people have been rightly roasting Kendall and Kris for their buildup

CELEBITCHYWhat even is Gwyneth Paltrow, anymore? And am I still allowed to enjoy The Royal Tenenbaums?

VOX“Anyone in authority [claiming a terrorism crisis] to bolster support for building the wall or any other physical barrier along the southern border is most likely guilty of fear mongering and willfully misleading the American people.” –One of Donald Trump’s former top counterterrorism experts

THE BLEMISHSee, I like this news because the more people turn down hosting the Oscars the more likely it is that the ceremony will actually be helmed by a monkey in a tuxedo

THE BLASTJustin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin toured a home in Encino CA with 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, 12,500 total square feet, and a $13 million price tag — and here are some photos

LAINEY GOSSIPDay of Teaser Trailers, #1: The good stuff is on lockdown until the final season premiere, but you can enjoy these three seconds of new Game of Thrones footage and parse them for clues until April

DLISTEDDay of Teaser Trailers, #2: The Haunting of Sharon Tate, starring Hilary Duff and what feels like at least a couple decades’ worth of anticipation at this point, is apparently going to be hot garbage. I am getting a definite The Room vibe from this trailer — one to watch, for sure

LINKS! Madonna butt implants, Most beautiful woman?, Dr. Pimple Popper is back…

Madonna butt implants 2

THE BLASTMadonna played a surprise New Year’s Eve show at the Stonewall Inn and her ass apparently looked Kardashian-worthy, so now the hot gossip is whether Madonna butt implants are actually a thing

THE BLEMISHHere is the seventeen-year-old French model Thylane Blondeau, who according to at least one ranking service of note is The Most Beautiful Woman In The World. Since no one will dispute this ranking in any way, you can just take a quick look at the pics and move on

JEZEBELThis new & extensive interview with Dr. Sandra Lee — aka Dr. Pimple Popper — is perfect whether you’re one of her millions of fans or one of the millions of people who don’t understand why she has millions of fans

REALITY TEAIt sounds like the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast trip to Cabo this season will be pretty over-the-top, even by Real Housewives standards

CELEBITCHYTaylor Swift has made the conversion from celebrity-studded Fourth of July parties to celebrity-studded New Year’s Eve parties. It makes sense: they’re simultaneously safer (which is better for her brand) but also generally drunker

LAINEY GOSSIPTiffany Haddish bombed on New Year’s Eve, then engaged with the “learning that happens in failure” by owning up to it on New Year’s Day (and by inviting fans onstage to get drunk with her as the bombing unfolded, which sounds like a sensible enough in-the-moment decision)

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPGianna Hammer and Hayden Parker Weaver of Are You The One? confirmed their split, which actually happened several months back. They had been together for two years; Gianna gave birth to their first child together last August

DLISTEDTen months of engagement were enough for Toni Braxton and Birdman, who just called the whole thing off. Birdman made the news public by dropping “It’s Over!” on IG Live, then deleting every one of his posts including that one

VOXFinally, a little something for the parents of young children (or the supremely stoned): “A dozen streamable shows and movies that kids can watch (and parents will like): Delight the whole family while also retaining your sanity”
