LINKS Breaking Bad movie news, Chrisley knows nothing, Prince Andrew and Epstein…

THE BLASTThis weekend brought surprise confirmation that the Breaking Bad movie filmed completely in secret and has already wrapped; now it looks like the first of the Breaking Bad movie news has come via star Aaron Paul himself. Paul dropped a huge teaser about the movie’s plot on social media this weekend; the film, entitled El Camino, drops October 11 on Netflix

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPIf you didn’t already think Todd Chrisley was an absolute shudderworthy creep before this whole scandal involving Chrisley allegedly extorting his daughter over her sex tape — well, why wouldn’t you think that? Anyway, it turns out that Chrisley was *also* wrong when he said the sex on the tape represented infidelity, as his daughter likely wasn’t married at the time

CELEBITCHYSpeaking of absolute shudderworthy creeps, Prince Andrew’s explanations about his relationship to the late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein are not doing the work he thinks they are

REALITY TEAEvidently Leah McSweeney, 36 years old and a friend of Tinsley Mortimer’s, has been cast as Bethenny Frankel’s replacement for RHONY Season 12, which was scheduled to begin shooting the day after Frankel announced she was quitting the show

JEZEBELDisney’s new streaming channel won’t have any of the R-rated goodness it got when it bought Fox. Nor will it have anything in the realm of risqué PG-13 content. This is fine if you want something for your kids but annoying as hell if you are an adult who would like to watch something not for kids and would also prefer not to subscribe to so many different streaming services that you may as well have an unsatisfying cable package circa 2006

GO FUG YOURSELFFred Durst from Limp Bizkit filmed a movie called The Fanatic and John Travolta starred in it and also maybe Michael Bolton is in it? And they are having way too much forced fun on this particular red carpet? Nothing about those two sentences makes any sense, yet I swear to God every word of them is true

LAINEY GOSSIP“Since it first broke almost a couple of weeks ago that Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth had separated, and Miley was seen making out with Kaitlynn Carter on holiday in Italy, public opinion, at least from what I’ve seen, has been in favour of Liam. ”

DLISTEDFinally, in other Future Disney Properties news, the studio released the first photo of Emma Stone as Cruella de Vil in the upcoming 101 Dalmations prequel / reboot

LINKS Matrix 4 forthcoming, Lori Loughlin misfires, Chrisley drama intensifies…

VOXIt was only a matter of time before a franchise as well-known and profitable as The Matrix got either a reboot or a sequel, and now we know which it will be: Matrix 4, starring Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss, and presumably Laurence Fishburne as well, will begin production next year for a 2021 release

CELEBITCHYLori Loughlin would still like you to believe that she’s the real victim in her ongoing College Admissions Scandal and Trial

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPLindsie Chrisley, who’s already accused her family of trying to extort her with a sex tape, has now hired security to protect her from the ongoing threats of her brother (OK, maybe) and father (???)

THE BLEMISHThe moviegoing world appeared to be losing its mind yesterday when, for business reasons that I’m not going to learn about, Spider Man stopped being a part of the Marvel Comics Universe. But given that our economy is powered by comic book movies and especially Spider Man movies, maybe I should be worried

THE BLASTAndy Richter went off on an airline passenger a few seats down from him when the dude kept taking his sandals off and putting his bare feet up. Thank you, Andy Richter

DLISTEDIt seems Miley Cyrus is getting over the initial stages of post-Liam grief by “basically having sex” in public with also-just-broken-up-with Kaitlynn Carter

JEZEBELWhat are mindless corporate jobs for if not slacking off, reading books in the break room when no one is around, and binge-watching TV shows when sitting at your desk?

GO FUG YOURSELFJenny McCarthy is definitely going for something here

LINKS Heidi Klum topless, #Boymom problems, Medieval vagina poems…

THE BLEMISHFrom pretty much out of nowhere, we got a Heidi Klum topless photo from the woman herself live from her extended honeymoon with brand-new husband Tom Kaulitz. The topless pic depicts Heidi bathing in a rainbow filter and showing a surprising amount of nipple for Instagram

JEZEBELThe increasingly popular #Boymom hashtag appears to be sort of a surprise gateway drug for “Boys will be boys” acceptance — either that, or an unwitting cry for help from mothers who’ve given up on trying to teach their sons cleanliness

DLISTEDThis is hardly a hot take, but Cats *is* way better as a horror movie

LINKS Jeffrey Epstein suicide, Prince Andrew allegations, BH90210 reboot…

VOXNews of the Jeffrey Epstein suicide is still reverberating across the internet, but the investigation into the alleged sex trafficker and his ties to both the current President and one former President will continue. At the very least, many of the dozens of women who’ve accused Epstein of abusing them and introducing them to powerful people who abused them in turn say they intend to bring charges against as many of Epstein’s current and former associates as possible

JEZEBELAs for the Jeffrey Epstein suicide itself: the guards at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, where Epstein was being held, were apparently stuck with “‘extreme’ overtime shifts thanks to staffing shortages.” Epstein’s suicide is currently at the heart of too many conspiracy theories to count

CELEBITCHYAdditionally, Epstein’s ties to Prince Andrew, about who there have been whispers and gossip for literally years, have come under new scrutiny over the past few weeks. But at least one British tabloid says that Epstein’s death is actually very good news for Andrew, and it’s hard to argue with their line of logic

THE BLEMISHFinally, it seems that “a number of fashion industry figures” had close ties to Epstein. Among them: “established model scout” and manager Jean-Luc Brunel, plus Naomi Campbell and Heidi Klum (both of whom deny any close connection)

LAINEY GOSSIPTo be fair, I am not really the intended audience for the BH90210 reboot, but “smart” was not one of the words to come to mind during the premiere episode last week

LINKS Taylor Swift’s Vogue cover, The appeal of true crime, DIY Vagina Laser…

CELEBITCHYTaylor Swift’s Vogue cover story actually contains several interesting revelations — among them her perspective on the Kimye debacle, Katy Perry, and why she declined to endorse Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election

JEZEBELWriter Rachel Monroe’s new book Savage Appetites is about “the complicated reasons women love true crime.” Given the absolute glut of TC programming out there right now and the fact that women represent an overwhelming majority of its audience, it’s not hard to see why this book is, objectively, compelling as hell

THE BLEMISHThis DIY vagina laser is intended for hair removal, but it sounds more like an excellent means by which a struggling supermodel would accidentally gain superpowers in a comic book movie about female empowerment

REALITY TEARHONY star Dorinda Medley’s distaste for friend of the cast Barbara Kavovit doesn’t stop when the season stops

THE BLASTI don’t know why I can never remember that Christina Antstead is pregnant with her first child by her new husband, but evidently she’s about four weeks away from giving birth

GO FUG YOURSELF“It’s imperfect, but so are all things” is not the highest bar to set for the BH90210 re-reboot, but if you were into the show during either of its first two runs you were probably always going to watch the 2019 version anyway

LINKS Rihanna on Trump, 8chan explained, Bam Margera’s meltdown…

CELEBITCHYPlenty of celebrities had plenty of forceful things to say about gun control and the GOP in the wake of multiple mass shootings this weekend, but the response from Rihanna on Trump still managed to stand out

VOXThe terrorist responsible for the El Paso shooting shared his manifesto on the hate site 8chan about a half-hour before he started shooting. In case you’re unfamiliar with the site, here’s what 8chan is about

DLISTEDBam Margera got kicked off a flight for drunken rowdy behavior this weekend, then amplified his own mess by doing a ton of posting about it on social media. He’s now apparently reaching out to Dr. Phil for help, possibly unironically

LINKS Tamra Judge’s tattooed lipstick, Liv Tyler’s skincare routine, Ashley Olsen engaged…

REALITY TEARHOC star Tamra Judge recently got her lips permanently stained light pink, which was not something I had ever heard of but am decidedly unsurprised by the existence of. And apparently Tamra Judge’s tattooed lipstick isn’t even the first among the Real Housewives cast: two other RHOC cast members have had the same thing done, and two more have tattooed eyebrows. The more you know!

CELEBITCHYLiv Tyler’s 25-step, $1,000 skin care routine used to be her “secret obsession,” until she did a video about it for Vogue and earned herself free skin care products for the rest of her life (assuming she wasn’t getting them already)

THE BLEMISHModel Carissa Pinkston said some transphobic and mostly confused-sounding things on social media, then tripled (quadrupled?) down on them by claiming she was transgender herself. Unfortunately for Carissa, she very much isn’t

LINKS RHOP addresses Michael Darby, Project Runway ending, Live Nation gets greedy…

JEZEBELAfter years of allegations, whispers, jokes, and quickly withdrawn legal complaints, the “RHOP addresses Michael Darby” question finally got answered this week when the show brought up the topic of his alleged sexual assaults

DLISTEDKarlie Kloss is apparently not coming back to Project Runway after her contract is up next year, and the show’s ratings have been trending downward for years, so it’s reportedly likely that the show will end in 2020

VOX“Live Nation, the promotion company that merged with the ticket-selling platform Ticketmaster in 2010, admitted to Billboard that it had a quiet practice of helping performers sell thousands of tickets on resale sites at higher prices, rather than offering them at face value to fans”

LAINEY GOSSIPAll Mahershala Ali had to do to land the part of Blade in Marvel’s big reboot was tell Marvel that he wanted a meeting and then at that meeting tell them that he wanted to be Blade. Sounds right
