THE BLAST – The first Demi Lovato interview since her near-fatal overdose saw the 27-year-old feeling optimistic and calm about what the future holds.

CELEBITCHY – Donald 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?

REALITY TEA – RHOC 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)

THE BLEMISH – Houston Texans quarterback DeShaun Watson got kicked in the eye in the middle of a game last week, and it was swollen shut all week, but he played this week and very well at that and after the game he credited his miracle semi-heal to the re-released Popeye’s spicy chicken sandwich
GO FUG YOURSELF – “Emilia Clarke’s LAST CHRISTMAS Press Tour HAS Been Pretty Good”
DLISTED – This comment already went viral on Twitter, but it’s worth repeating here: there is absolutely no way this is Kanye in the dinosaur costume, right?
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.”
