REALITY TEALike many businesses across the country, Lisa Vanderpump’s Pump restaurant was hit hard by the COVID pandemic.

JEZEBELIt seems the Golden Globes are guilty of what industry insiders have long termed a little light corruption. An LA Times investigation revealed the Hollywood Foreign Press Association turns studio luxury junkets into nominations for preferred shows and movies, which is why the universally reviled Emily In Paris will be featured during the ceremony and the beloved Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom will not

LAINEY GOSSIPThe HFPA and Golden Globes organizers have to be secretly thrilled with this development, though. In a year when nobody went to see movies and an era when awards show ratings are slipping, what could be better for this week’s ceremony than some red hot controversy?

CELEBITCHYThe latest round of text messages allegedly from Armie Hammer is even more disturbing than the first. There are some pretty graphic descriptions of sexual cannibalism, torture, and abuse; Armie has also been dropped by both his agent and his publicist, which would seem to suggest that a) there is some truth to the allegations, and b) there could be a major Armie Hammer exposé coming

DLISTEDIt was only a week ago that Aaron Rogers and Shailene Woodley confirmed that they’re dating. At the time, it looked like they had been seeing each other on the DL for a little while, and only went public after the Packers’ season ended. But now the truth has come out: they’re actually *engaged*, to which Rogers’ publicist simply said, “When you know, you know, right?”

JEZEBELTessica Brown — better known as the Gorilla Glue woman — spent 22 hours in the emergency room this past weekend trying to get her makeshift hairstyling product off of her head for good.

GO FUG YOURSELFI was half asleep when The Weeknd played the Super Bowl halftime show, and I thought it was kind of strange and therefore a welcome break from the game itself; if social media is any indication, most people seemed to enjoy his performance. And so here’s a break from the wave of good reviews: “‘Fine’ about covers it. Maybe I’m misremembering, but the best of the past productions took those familiar performers and worked in fresh tricks. This, conversely, came across like a stubborn disinterest in breaking out of this supposed ‘storyline'”

REALITY TEASure, RHONY may be on a filming break due to an undisclosed cast and / or crew member contracting COVID-19. And yes, this may be the second time the show has had to put filming on hold due to COVID exposure.

DLISTEDThanks to “an incredible surge in Tesla’s stock price,” Elon Musk is now the richest person in the world. It’s a close race — Musk’s $185 billion is just a smidge higher than Jeff Bezos’ $184 — but a year ago Musk was *only* worth $27 billion. I have no idea what Tesla does
