LINKS Lily James affairs, Jersey Shore baby, Cardi B’s Birkins…

CELEBITCHYIt turns out we should maybe be referring to the Lily James affairs — as in plural. Just a week ago, it emerged that Lily and Dominic West had a “Roman bangathon” in full view of the paparazzi. And now it’s emerged that Lily and her Rebecca co-star Armie Hammer almost certainly carried on a passionate affair during filming

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPJersey Shore Family Vacation star Deena Cortese is expecting her second child with husband Chris Buckner in May of 2021. In case you were wondering, Deena’s will be the ninth baby in total for the cast of Jersey Shore, which almost seems impossible given where the show started

DLISTEDCardi B and Offset are taking some heat for their seeming addiction to Birkin bags. Offset has been flashing receipts for the $128,662.50 he spent on Birkins as a thank you to Cardi for taking him back. And that’s not counting the $20,000 he dropped on a bag for two-year-old Kulture’s birthday

GO FUG YOURSELFYesterday was the 50th anniversary of Pierre Cardin’s legendary semi-topless, semi-bottomless nurse outfit. Somehow I’ve still never seen this as a legit sexy nurse Halloween costume

REALITY TEAReal Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards says she’s mended fences with dearly departed former co-star Denise Richards. After siding with Brandi last season, Kyle now says she “never like[s] leaving things hanging” and has “texted with” Denise to make things right

THE BLASTDrake just celebrated his 34th birthday with a huge party in an LA club. 34 somehow seems both too young and exactly right for Drake, who has looked kind of 34 forever. But the lack of masks and social distancing in the many pics of the party is troubling — is anyone still legit quarantining, or are we all playing pretend?

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPKylie Jenner’s latest self-promoting Instagram photo album is Carole Baskin-inspired. Would you believe Tiger King came out this past March? I swear, everything that happened at the very beginning of 2020 feels at least two full years old

LAINEY GOSSIP“In Totally Under Control, all of [documentarian Alex] Gibney’s chief interests are brought to bear: politics, dirty backroom deals, great Americans brought down by hubris. Some might argue using the word ‘great’ in terms of Donald Trump, but I think any US president hamstrung through sheer incompetence is of note, whether one approves of them personally or not. And in Totally Under Control, Gibney, along with directors Ophelia Harutyunyan and Suzanne Hillinger, lays out the step-by-step bungling of the US response to the coronavirus epidemic”

LINKS Adele hosts SNL, Melania’s double returns, Best Vibrators 2020…

DLISTEDIt was always going to be strange to see Adele hosts SNL without actually singing (H.E.R. was the musical guest this week). Everyone and their mother thought this would be Adele’s reveal of her super secret new album, or at least a single. But she acknowledged the gossip by saying the album “isn’t finished,” then wound up singing during a sketch anyway

CELEBITCHYI’ve lost track of the number of times a woman who only superficially looks like Melania Trump has appeared alongside America’s current president in public. But it’s happened often enough that there’s a big & growing group of people who think the White House employs regular body doubles to pass off as Melania, and it happened again a couple days ago

JEZEBELThe headline says it all: “Let’s Hear It for the Best Vibrators to Stimulate Your Days at Home”

THE BLASTFormer Basketball Wives star Draya Michele is showing off her custom Victoria’s Secret Halloween costume and her body both at the same time

VOXSpeaking of posturing: at least five people who work for the Vice President have tested positive for COVID-19. And the VP has been directly exposed to those people. The White House’s response? Send him back out on the campaign trail for maskless rallies

LAINEY GOSSIP“Finally, 2020 has done something right and given us another season of a great show. Miracle Workers is a vastly underappreciated comedy series starring Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, Karan Soni, and Lolly Adefope. The first season is about a group of angels trying to save Earth from a disinterested God, and the second season is set in the Dark Ages. The newest iteration of the show will be set in the Old West, with the cast bumbling their way along the Oregon Trail — here come the ‘you have died of dysentery’ jokes”

LINKS Zoom Dick, Pre-Election Asteroid, 50 Cent loves money…

JEZEBELStill-current New Yorker writer, television pundit, and lawyer Jeffrey Toobin gave rise to the phrase “Zoom Dick” yesterday, after it emerged that Toobin mistakenly got his dick out during a Zoom meeting with at least seven other New Yorker heavyweights. The number of dick-related puns on Toobin’s name has been a delight

DLISTEDNeil deGrasse Tyson says there’s a decent chance an asteroid approximately the size of a refrigerator could “buzz-cut Earth” the day before the presidential election. Tyson also says the asteroid is too small “to cause harm,” which leads me to wonder: a refrigerator from the 1950s, or one from today?

THE BLAST50 Cent appears to intend to vote for America’s current president in the upcoming election. He announced this after seeing a graphic on the evening news featuring hypothetical upper tax brackets under the Biden plan, where people making more than $400,000 per year would see an increase. In unsurprising related news, 50 Cent appears to value money above all

REALITY TEARHOBH star Erika Jayne stole a meme from a noted fan account (@brandsbybravo), then didn’t credit the account in reposting it, *then* mocked the account when the woman behind it asked Erika for credit. It’s never a good sign when you start thinking you’re above the fan accounts

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPKim Kardashian is upset over the affect the coronavirus pandemic has had on her 40th birthday plans. She intended to have a week-long party called “Wild, Wild Miss West’s 40th Birthday,” complete with a metal cowgirl costume (?), but now Kim’s had to scrap everything because no one will come because there’s a debilitating virus lurking in everyone’s bushes

CELEBITCHYThe British press is accusing one of the royal couples of elitism, “sitting in an ivory tower,” and “becoming a bit irrelevant.” Guess before you click: it is William and Kate, or Harry and Meghan?

CELEBITCHYCardi B says she filed for divorce from Offset to teach him “a lesson” and insists that she’s “not getting f*cking abused” despite taking him back

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPIn addition to maybe quietly endorsing Joe Biden for President of the United States, Jill Dillard appears to be the only member of the extended Duggar family who takes COVID-19 seriously instead of just dismissing it as a hoax

LAINEY GOSSIPI almost hate to agree with this deliciously hot mid-October take, but I, too, generally find Halloween to be an excruciating chore. I’m no good at figuring out costumes and I never have any budget to put together a truly scary murder show of decorations, and if you’re just going to throw up some tacky stuff from the costume shop then why bother at all?

LINKS Khloe Kardashian plastic surgery, Hillbilly Elegy trailer, Kate Plus 8 house…

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPJust when you think the gossip has died down, the subject of the gossip comes along and stirs it back up! The topic today is Khloe Kardashian plastic surgery, because Khloe would like you to know that she’s actually never had any performed. And apparently “micro-injections, laser work, and facial contouring” don’t count

CELEBITCHYNetflix’s adaptation of the bestselling and problematic memoir Hilbilly Elegy finally has a trailer. The movie stars Amy Adams and Glenn Close, both of whom are getting Oscar buzz for their roles. Based on reaction to the trailer, if they do win it’ll be for the same reason Martin Scorsese won for The Departed

REALITY TEAAccording to Real Housewives of Orange County star Emily Simpson, her co-star Braunwyn Windham-Burke has become such a point of contention that every single one of the show’s cast members unfollowed her on social media and none of them are speaking to her

JEZEBELAnd on that note: “The Real Housewives of Orange County is officially back for season 15, sans a few of its longest running stars, and it is truly worse than ever”

REALITY TEACynthia Bailey wasn’t the only Real Housewife to tie the knot this past weekend — there was also the well-timed Kelly Dodd wedding to Rick Leventhal, just days after Kelly ignited a firestorm with her “Drunk Wives Matter” hat.
