REALITY TEAVanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie exposed a particularly odious cyberbully who sent her a DM on Instagram advising Scheana to kill herself via overdose

DLISTEDThe long-rumored pairing is becoming a reality: Quentin Tarantino is indeed working on a Star Trek movie. Which would be an interesting choice, should he choose to direct, as Tarantino’s next movie will be his tenth and he’s long said he’ll retire at ten. And yes, there will be plenty of Tarantino-esque swearing, Star Trek movie or no

CELEBITCHYI’ve read a bunch of the coverage of Jon Stewart’s tearful, outraged speech before the House Judiciary Committee yesterday, where he tore into the Committee’s largely absent members and their slack attitude toward federal funding for 9/11 first responder medical care, and the only sense of it I can make is that Congress for some reason doesn’t seem to think that helping support the surviving and often quite ill first responders is just not really a priority

LAINEY GOSSIPVoting for the 2019 Emmys began yesterday. To no one’s surprise, Natasha Lyonne is campaigning hard for Russian Doll, which has an uphill battle because it’s a comedy-length show that isn’t really a comedy and also isn’t really a drama. On the other hand, Russian Doll is a perfect show. Hopefully enough Emmy voters realize this
