LINKS Robyn Dixon back taxes, Popeyes chicken sandwich returns, Harvey Weinstein confronted…

REALITY TEATurns out Porsha Williams isn’t the only Real Housewife with IRS issues. Robyn Dixon back taxes are now a thing, thanks to the agency claiming the Real Housewives of Potomac star didn’t pay any income tax at all from 2015 to 2017. Robyn’s total tax bill is just shy of $90,000, but at least she’s not Lori Laughlin

JEZEBELPopeye’s is bringing back its infamous and long-sold-out chicken sandwich just in time for everyone to have forgotten all about it and thus presumably (?) get excited about it all over again. I would never have guessed that fast food could do with sandwiches what sneaker companies do with shoes, but it seems a limited-edition chicken sandwich can and did work

LAINEY GOSSIPThe other night, accused rapist and generally disgraced human Harvey Weinstein was spotted hanging out in the audience at an open mic night for artists. No one was saying anything about it, so one of the artists — by chance, a comedian! — got up on stage and proceeded to roast him (despite a less-than-receptive audience). Her name is Kelly Buchanan, and here’s the video of her impromptu set

THE BLASTThis Kanye and Kim headline is some grade-A low key shade

CELEBITCHYAnd speaking of Kanye, he would like you to know that he apparently “suffers on social media” because there are too many sexy women sharing sexy photos of their bodies. He said some other stuff too; none of it really makes any sense!

THE BLEMISHBen Affleck is trying to find love on an exclusive, members-only dating app that requires users to create “a photo montage set to music.” Ben Affleck’s life is currently the pilot episode of a network sitcom

DLISTEDJoe Francis of Girls Gone Wild infamy was “tied up, robbed, and nearly kidnapped” by five armed men while hanging out at his neighbor’s house in Mexico last week. I wish I could say that the burglars singled Joe out, but alas, it seems the other people in the house suffered the same fate

GO FUG YOURSELFThis article on the character Chris Evans’ brother Scott played on One Life To Life is so delightful that you’ll forget there are also photos of the two handsome brothers wearing “low-key, reasonable bomber jackets” for you to look at

VOXIt’s getting cold-ish outside, so here’s the deal with the sleeping bag puffer coats you’re about to start seeing everywhere again

LINKS Lori Laughlin prison sentence, Republican pizza party, RuPaul’s Celebrity Drag Race…

CELEBITCHYThanks to a slew of new charges including bribery, the Lori Laughlin prison sentence could now be up to 50 years — or 1,304 times longer than Felicity Huffman will have spent behind bars after taking the feds’ deal and pleading guilty. Laughlin could also have to pay well over a million dollars in fines; that Hallmark money is good, but it’s not going to last forever

VOXYesterday afternoon a group of Congressional Republicans literally barged into a secure room during a closed hearing on the Trump impeachment and likely compromised the security of the place, making it easier for foreign governments to spy on them (and, by extension, us). They also ordered pizza

LAINEY GOSSIPVH1 just announced that RuPaul’s Drag Race is getting a celebrity-based spin-off starting in 2020, and speculation has already begun about which celebs will be included in the debut season. I for one would like to see Tom Hanks and Tim Allen in an episode, if only so Tim can recreate some of the comedic chops he displayed during the Toy Story 4 promo tour

REALITY TEARHOA star Cynthia Bailey says her literal glow-up comes from “having lots of sex” with her fiancé Mike Hill. Also (no surprise) their 2020 wedding will be filmed for the show, but Cynthia doesn’t have a venue yet

THE BLASTKaty Perry does ASMR now, because #content. Except her new rendition of “Harley In Hawaii” is also meant to be funny, so if you’re genuinely into ASMR videos you’re probably going to be genuinely annoyed by this

JEZEBELThere’s a new version of the story about Princess Diana once shoving her stepmother, Countess Raine Spencer, down a flight of stairs. Said Diana of the incident: “I pushed her down the stairs, which gave me enormous satisfaction. I wanted to throttle that stepmother of mine. She brought me such grief.” No way to misinterpret that

LINKS Mitt Romney’s secret identity, Nicki Minaj married, Teresa and Joe sit-down…

CELEBITCHYMitt Romney’s secret identity for Twitter purposes sounds like an alias Homer Simpson would think up on the fly and then wear a mustache for in person

THE BLASTNicki Minaj got married to…this guy?

REALITY TEATheresa and Joe Giudice are having a sit-down with Andy Cohen to air out all the rumors and gossip surrounding their relationship and its future. It’s unclear if Joe will be present thanks to Skype or if Andy and Teresa and a Bravo crew are schlepping all the way to Italy to film this (and the answer to that question will likely say a lot about the state of their marriage)

VOXHere’s the final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, a clunky title if ever one was. This movie comes out four years after the first Star Wars reboot, something that thanks to Disney’s over-saturating the market and the general pace of the entertainment I honestly can’t even remember the title of right now

JEZEBELJohnny Depp’s legal strategy against his ex Amber Heard and her claims of domestic abuse appear to be going poorly

LAINEY GOSSIPThis is only a disturbing headline because of how disturbing the story behind it is

GO FUG YOURSELF‘“I’ve put a lot of thought into this, and — this might be an usual request — but I was wondering if we could do something that was like Bjork’s swan dress. But, and this is the vital part, without the head.”’

LINKS Ryan Phillippe domestic assault details, Joe Giudice deportation, Amazon fumes…

JEZEBELThe Ryan Phillippe domestic assault details in the just-settled case Phillippe’s ex-girlfriend Elsie Hewitt brought against him “paint a troubling portrait” of the 43-year-old former star

DLISTED“Juicy” Joe Giudice is no longer in ICE custody — he’s been sent back to Italy while his lawyers battle the deportation order that sent him there earlier this year. Theresa, for her part, is being “realistic about the fate of their marriage should [Joe] be deported” for good

VOXAmazon announced it’s going to start offering free next-day delivery on $1 items like dental floss and toothpaste, forests and fossil fuels be damned. Still doesn’t beat a 10-minute walk or drive to the nearest drugstore — because when you need toothpaste, you generally can’t wait until tomorrow

REALITY TEARHOA star Kenya Moore says NeNe Leakes is a “bully” with “very few friends”; NeNe, at almost the same time, said she doesn’t think Kenya is telling the truth about her (Kenya’s) split from estranged husband Marc Daly, and that Marc couldn’t have been the one cheating

LINKS Peter Weber’s face, Kim Kardashian to the rescue, Breaking Bad reunion…

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPBachelor star Peter Weber is reportedly fine after suffering a nasty fall while filming the new season, but Peter Weber’s face is another matter. Weber apparently “slipped and fell face-first into two cocktail glasses” during a round of golf and had to have 22 stitches put into the front of his head

DLISTED“The earth can breathe a sigh of relief. Our poor beleaguered environment has a new hero, but instead of wearing a cape, she wears shapewear. Kim Kardashian West is keen to meet with Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old environmental activist who ripped the powers that be new assholes at the United Nations Climate Change Summit.”

LAINEY GOSSIPThe Breaking Bad movie El Camino comes out on Netflix this Friday and Aaron Paul has been doing plenty of publicity to support it. Last night, Paul and BB creator Vince Gilligan reunited with Bryan Cranston for the film’s premiere and it’s impossible not to smile when you see how happy they all are to see each other

CELEBITCHYTyler Perry says he had to create his own movie studio in Atlanta — one that’s apparently bigger than both Warner Brothers’ and Disney’s studios combined — because he was “ignored in Hollywood”

JEZEBELThis scary story reminds me I need to pull the glow-in-the-dark skeleton on the front door before Halloween season is over

THE BLEMISHSienna Miller says Harvey Weinstein ordered her to stop partying so hard back in the mid-00s and somehow her story does not involve Weinstein getting his dick out in front of her?

REALITY TEAAesha Scott from Below Deck Mediterranean says co-star Joao Franco “bullied [her] every single day” during filming for last season: “He never stopped judging me and criticizing me. When we left, you’ll notice on the last episode, I didn’t even hug him goodbye. I was so sick of him treating me like crap.”

THE BLASTBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s endless divorce has become the Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton having a baby version of high-profile celebrity splits.

LINKS Candy corn is garbage, Tyler Perry Studios red carpet, Prince Andrew scrutiny…

CELEBITCHYAccording to a new and thoroughly scientific survey by, the most beloved Halloween candy in America is the hallowed Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, followed closely by Snickers. And the worst Halloween candy is candy corn, with circus peanuts a distant runner-up. So, now that it’s conclusive that candy corn is garbage, let the seasonal debating commence! (For the record: candy corn is absolute and total garbage)

LAINEY GOSSIP“It seems like most of Black Hollywood was in Atlanta this weekend for the grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios. Oprah and Stedman walked the carpet together. Halle Berry and Whoopi Goldberg shared a moment on the red carpet. Samuel L Jackson, Viola Davis, and Tiffany Haddish were there, and Ava DuVernay too. It was a combination of veterans and the future, with Cicely Tyson, who turns 95 years old in December, representing legend and Storm Reid carrying on the legacy.”

THE BLASTSomehow Beyonce didn’t get a mention in Lainey’s opening paragraph above, but don’t worry; she was at the Tyler Perry Studios grand opening as well. She shared a table with Oprah, as one does

JEZEBELIt seems Prince Andrew’s response to recently resurfaced footage of himself “hanging out at Jeffrey Epstein’s Manhattan sex-trafficking mansion in 2010” is that he was only there to tell Epstein they were no longer friends. Congrats to Prince Andrew on finding an excuse even weaker and less believable than “I only went in the strip club to get directions”

VOXAfter that Epstein story, enjoy the palate cleanser that is this totally delightful, gentle, and thought-provoking comic strip about the mysterious world of eels. No, really. Thank me in the comments

THE BLEMISHThe folks in charge of the Washington football team leaked a few videos of (now former) coach Jay Gruden “smoking weed & piping young thots” in advance of his firing, which came after the team lost its fifth game in a row yesterday. It’s not in the article, but Washington called Gruden in to the office at five o’ clock this morning to fire him. So, if your day’s not going great, at least you’re not Jay Gruden

LINKS Eva Marcille custody dispute, Mark Hamill v Ivanka Trump, Ukrainian Horror Story…

REALITY TEANews of the Eva Marcille custody dispute couldn’t come at a worse time for the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who just gave birth to a healthy baby boy last week. Marcille’s estranged husband Kevin McCall is basically trolling her by filing for joint custody of he and Eva’s daughter Marley, since Kevin is *also* facing a year in jail on domestic abuse charges

CELEBITCHYMark Hamill isn’t having any of Ivanka Trump’s Star Wars references (also, who goes with a stormtrooper?)

JEZEBELRemember the story last week about the six-year-old orphan from Ukraine who turned out to actually be a fully-grown adult with homicidal tendencies…and who then went missing? Well, she’s been found — and in the most likely US state of all

GO FUG YOURSELF“On one hand, it’s very on-the-nose that Angelina Jolie showed up to [the Maleficent 2 premiere] looking like a rich villain, and Elle Fanning arrived floating like a woodland nymph. Then again, I would have been astonished if they’d done a role reversal and it was Angelina bedecked in flowers, projecting the image of a sweet naif who’d just had her first roll in the meadow. This is a woman whose brand was once blood, after all. She’s not skipping into this party looking one bonnet shy of the May Queen.”

DLISTEDThe Joker isn’t supposed to be sympathetic?

LINKS Bieber’s wedding weekend, Trump v Irony, Face tattoo rundown…

LAINEY GOSSIPHailey and Justin Bieber’s wedding weekend was a montage of skin treatments and water sports at a posh South Carolina resort, one that the couple booked for a week before arriving to give the staff enough time to prepare for the deluge of celebrities. And the festivities actually culminated with a Monday wedding, which is somehow becoming the norm among big names?

THE BLASTHere’s a ton more photos of the actual venue for Beiber’s wedding weekend, plus a few of the couple (who, let’s not forget, already got married at New York City Hall a year ago). Evidently the rehearsal dinner required boat valets, and afterward the wedding party watched The Notebook outdoors next to a lake

VOXThis is really rich

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPIn light of Aaron Carter’s brand-new and not-great giant face tattoo of Rihanna, here’s a list of six reality stars with face tattoos, along with why each person got theirs. (Spoiler: Aaron’s is still by far the biggest and most garish of anyone on the list)

Somewhere in the distance, ghosts are gathering their tattered sheets and rattling chains, preparing for another month of scaring children and regular adults shitless.
