LINKS Madonna controversy, TI’s daughter unfollows, Impeachment primer…

CELEBITCHYIt looks like this Madonna controversy over the two-hour delay before her Miami show isn’t going to go away anytime soon. After a fan sued Madonna for pushing the show’s start time back two hours, Madonna actually clapped back from onstage, telling the audience “The queen is never late.” That may be true, but the queen also doesn’t need to flex?

JEZEBELA few days after TI told an interview he accompanies his daughter to her OBGYN and insists the doctor give him hymen status updates, TI’s daughter quietly unfollowed her father on Instagram. Of course, it being TI and his daughter, the unfollow was immediately noticed, as were her likes of comments about how weird and gross TI is

VOXThe first public hearings in the impeachment inquiry start this morning; here’s who’s testifying, why they’re relevant, and what else you should expect

GO FUG YOURSELFI wonder if there’s anyone left who hasn’t had the twist in Last Christmas spoiled for them, a week after its release in the UK and two days before it comes out in the US?

LAINEY GOSSIPCamila Cabello and Shawn Mendes just passed a “Hollywood celebrity couple rite of passage”: making out courtside at a basketball game for the benefit of all the paparazzi in attendance. (21st century bonus: It was a Clippers game)

DLISTEDAnd in Nene Leakes-adjacent news: Nene claims she was at the Miami restaurant where (big, lede-burying breath) Lamar Odom proposed to his girlfriend and personal trainer, Sabrina Parr, who is apparently going to become Mrs. Parr-Odom

LINKS Vicki Gunvalson quitting, Miley goes silent, People’s Choice Awards winners…

THE BLASTWith Vicki Gunvalson quitting Real Housewives of Orange County (allegedly), speculation about who the show will hire to replace her is rampant. Vicki, the show’s last remaining OG cast member, appeared to suggest that after fourteen seasons she was ready for “new projects” in a cryptic post that seems to have fans about evenly split between “Say it ain’t so” and “Bye, Felicia”

CELEBITCHYIt’s shocking how much Charlize Theron looks like Megyn Kelly in the new trailer for the upcoming movie Bombshell…and, yes, now that I see it, I have to admit that the eyelid game is very strong indeed

JEZEBELHeadline of the day: “Congratulations to This Antisocial Screaming Penguin for Winning New Zealand’s Bird of the Year Poll”

VOXThe more I read about Watchmen, HBO’s adaptation of Alan Moore’s iconic graphic novel, the more I’m convinced that ten years from now it will be regarded as the beginning of the end of Peak TV. (It probably doesn’t help that I have zero interest in getting involved with such a byzantine show)

LAINEY GOSSIPDoctor Sleep has already been declared a complete flop at the box office, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy these photos of stars Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson walking the red carpet at the premiere

LINKS PumpRules Season 8 trailer, Teresa Giudice gossip, Trump Jr. off The View…

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPThe PumpRules Season 8 trailer is here — and it looks like the new season could be the show’s most dramatic to date. Brittany and Jax are getting married; Stassi and Katie are feuding with Kristen; Lala is trying to stay sober and engaged to Randall; James depends on Lala “for help in getting his own demons under control”; and Scheana has to train the huge crop of newbies

REALITY TEARHONJ star Margaret Josephs lowkey endorsed the rumors that Teresa Giudice cheated on Joe while he was in prison: “I wouldn’t blame her. I mean, everything’s circumstantial. I don’t know what goes on behind closed doors, and I am the last person to judge anybody cheating, considering the way I met my husband.”

JEZEBELDonald Trump Jr. and Kimberly Guilfoyle got kicked off of The View, a show that increasingly has more in common with The Jerry Springer Show‘s heyday than anything else

VOXBill Gates is afraid of Elizabeth Warren’s proposed tax on super billionaires, which is cute. If you had his fortune and paid all your current taxes plus Warren’s, you’d still have enough money left over to start your very own blog, hire the entire former Deadspin staff, and have pizza parties every day until the Sun swallows the Earth

GO FUG YOURSELFKatie Holmes’ Elle UK cover story is a great big question mark and this article is a master class on how to unpack it

DLISTEDIt seems Jeff Goldblum’s name may be trending later today, in conjunction with the word “canceled.” When given the chance, Jeff didn’t condemn Woody Allen in the strongest terms possible; instead he told an interviewer that he had a good time filming Annie Hall and has likewise enjoyed sitting in with Allen’s jazz band from time to time

CELEBITCHYI must admit that Kim Kardashian’s take on the always dicey Canadian tuxedo looks pretty great here; maybe she’s reconsidered her position on moving to Wyoming

THE BLEMISHIn other Wyoming-adjacent news, Kanye West is apparently getting pretty steamed that nobody really thinks he’s really going to really run for president in 2024 (and we’ll remind you that Kanye originally said he was going to run in 2020, before deciding that he’s cool with the current officeholder)

LAINEY GOSSIP“For all the things she has going on, how did Oprah end up interviewing Gaga for a magazine? When she has her own magazine. Like, yes, this job is Oprah, and she’s been doing it for 30 years – but why this one in particular? I’m not criticising, I’m curious. I’m curious about how Oprah spends her time and how she chooses to spend her time. ”

THE BLASTRIP, but also headline of the day: “This Golden Girls Star Was Found Dead Partially Eaten By Turkey Vultures”

LINKS TI’s hymen interview, Prince Andrew in deeper, Southern Charm custody fight…

JEZEBELThe most surprising thing about TI’s hymen interview — you know, the one where he’s super proud of how he goes to the gynecologist with his teenage daughter and makes the doctor give him, TI, a full report on whether his teenage daughter’s hymen is “broken” — is how unsurprising it seems. Not that it’s cool for TI to do this (it isn’t!), but it’s still weirdly common for a father to be this weirdly, unnecessarily controlling where his daughter’s body is concerned. And on that note: Common, if you ever have a daughter, do her a favor and avoid TI’s example here

CELEBITCHYEverything to do with Prince Andrew’s connections to Jeffrey Epstein is gross as hell and the stories about how he’s been dodging questions and attention related to those connections keep getting worse and worse. On that note, finding out that Buckingham Palace forced ABC to back down from a story on Epstein back in 2015 is just…*shudders*

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPKathryn Denis and Thomas Ravenel’s custody agreement includes a provision that their kids aren’t allowed to watch Southern Charm. If either of them were smart they would have both realized months ago that they can never let their kids near anything to do with Southern Charm ever again

REALITY TEACamille Grammer is hinting that she may be open to a Real Housewives of Beverly Hills return, possibly because of all the rumors about Denise Richards’ film commitments leaving her unable to film much. But Denise has said those rumors are overblown, so maybe Camile is just letting her thirst show?

THE BLEMISHWhy would anyone ever spend $60 million on a nightclub?

LAINEY GOSSIPSpeaking of big money: Mariah Carey is using “All I Want For Christmas Is You” to sell potato chips in the UK. Her face is on the bag as well. As Lainey puts it: “How much do you think this deal is worth? Mimi would never nickel and dime this song. So it would have had to be a HUGE cheque.”

DLISTEDWhitney Houston’s alleged former girlfriend Robyn Crawford is releasing a memoir called A Song For You: My Life With Whitney Houston. In it, she details their early lives together after meeting at summer camp when both were teenagers — oh, and all the sex Robyn says they had for years, up until Whitney got a record deal and had to hide her true feelings

THE BLASTIan Ziering’s wife Erin just filed for divorce and is asking for full custody, spousal support, and presumably veto power over a second season of BH90210 for good measure

LINKS Keanu Reeves new girlfriend, John Stamos screws up, Abbi Murphy married…

CELEBITCHYEveryone is swooning over Keanu Reeves new girlfriend, a 46-year-old artist (and business partner of Keanu’s) named Alexandra Grant. I only mention her age because Keanu is getting showered with praise for dating someone roughly his age (she’s still nine years younger than him, but they’re both “old” by entertainment industry standards). It turns out the two of them have actually been together for months; the photo above was taken in May

THE BLASTJohn Stamos flubbed the end of his song during The Little Mermaid Live last night and now the big question is whether he did so accidentally or on purpose. Though he’s not the first person to make a Freudian slip involving Prince Eric and Prince Albert (Grimsby was definitely the first)

REALITY TEABelow Deck star Abbi Murphy is married to her “f*ck buddy” Captain Patrik after he proposed to her in a text. The engagement only aired on the show last night; afterward, Abbi confirmed that the two of them really get married on the DL — congrats!

VOXHere’s the deal with James Turrell, “one of the world’s greatest quasi-spiritual artists” and the man whose aesthetic Kanye West has been borrowing from more and more ever since Kanye started his born-again phase

LAINEY GOSSIP“So, once again, Chris Evans is promoting a movie where he probably can’t say much. He was just in a movie where he couldn’t say much – that would be Avengers: Endgame. Now that he’s on press tour for Knives Out then, he’s saying all the things he couldn’t say about Endgame.”

DLISTEDSpeaking of unexpected 80s throwbacks, Pamela Anderson is just happy to have people talking about her this much in 2019, even if it is for wearing and then trying to defend the classic ill-advised Halloween costume

LINKS Demi Lovato interview, Trump booed again, Meghan Edmonds talks divorce…

THE BLASTThe first Demi Lovato interview since her near-fatal overdose saw the 27-year-old feeling optimistic and calm about what the future holds. Lovato, who took a year off following the overdose, told an audience at the Teen Vogue Summit that she sees herself as “a fighter” and added she doesn’t regret anything in her life because “I love the person that I am today”

CELEBITCHYDonald Trump got booed at a major sporting event again: last week it was Game 5 of the World Series; this week it was a UFC fight at Madison Square Garden. I know it was New York City and all, but I feel like a UFC fight is maybe closer to Trump’s base?

VOXAnd speaking of the president: It turns out that if you have a spare $100 and a hardware store nearby, you, too, can buy a reciprocating saw with enough awesome power to cut through the border wall with Mexico, whether for political purposes or simply to smuggle things across

REALITY TEARHOC star Meghan Edmonds says her marriage to Jim started to fall apart following his texting scandal, after which some of his family and friends “blamed her for Jim’s indiscretions.” Meghan also spilled some of Jim’s tea, adding that he was “drinking and partying” with some of the couple’s babysitters (including the “22-year-old Mormon nanny” with whom he’s rumored to have had an affair)

JEZEBEL“Kanye West’s Sunday Service performances have a new wrinkle. Now the roving gospel performance installation is associated with a truly terrible breakfast offering after his performance at Bethany Church in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on Friday.”

LINKS Meghan Markle moving, YouTube music explained, Epstein mystery deepens…

CELEBITCHYRumors of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle moving abroad to escape the British tabloids & endless gossip have intensified to the point where even pro-Meghan outlets are talking about it like it’s a done deal. Apparently they’re considering moving to the US or Canada — which would be interesting from a celebrity / gossip standpoint, but probably wouldn’t solve any of their celebrity / gossip problems?

JEZEBELAlmost all of the music you hear in your preferred videos from your favorite YouTube content creators was written by composers and musicians who never see a penny for their work, proving once again that getting paid in exposure is the same thing as eating air for breakfast

The Getty Fire in western Los Angeles has now burned more than 656 acres, forcing evacuations from 7,091 homes since igniting early Monday morning. The blaze was only 15 percent contained as of Wednesday.”

>THE BLAST – It’s a good thing Johnny Depp won an eight-figure settlement from his former lawyers after bringing fraud and other charges against them, since he’ll need the money to pay his current lawyers in his ongoing legal battle with ex-wife Amber Heard

THE BLEMISH“Elizabeth Hurley and bikinis, three words that were never sweeter together. At 54, her body is aging 3 times slower than normal. It’s like gravity can’t penetrate a force field around her boobs. They’re ever present in her Instagram feed and as amazing now as they were 25 years ago. She’s also parlayed them into the Austin Powers movies and a swimwear line, Elizabeth Hurley Beach. Life is good for the Brit.”

LINKS Felicity Huffman free, G-Rated Kanye, Meghan Edmonds scandal fallout…

CELEBITCHYFelicity Huffman was only supposed to be in prison for two weeks for her role in the college admissions scandal, but was actually released three days early due to a loophole in prison policy. As you might have expected, Felicity Huffman free now has every major network and news show clamoring to be her first interview. Personally, I don’t care who gets it as long as we see some shade thrown Lori Laughlin’s way

DLISTEDNot sure how he expects this will work: Kanye West says he’ll “never perform his old music in its original form again,” meaning he’s going to make all his old lyrics G-rated in accordance with his newfound faith. Kanye should talk with Tom Araya from Slayer about one’s Christian beliefs having no affect on one’s art
