Kavanaugh accuser gains support

VOX599 women (and counting) from Brett Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford’s high school have signed an open letter supporting Ford and her sexual assault allegations against Kavenaugh. It’s a deliberate response to the open letter supporting him, which has about ten times fewer signatures

JEZEBELDr. Ford’s lawyers also delivered a letter to the Senate Judiciary Committee describing the death threats that have forced Ford and her family to move out of their home, along with her e-mail being hacked and multiple parties impersonating Ford online

THE BLASTIt seems that Burt Reynolds deliberately left his son Quentin out of his will and turned total control of his estate to his niece, Nancy Lee Brown Hess. We probably won’t hear any more about this from either living party, and it definitely won’t be challenged in court

LAINEY GOSSIPAtlanta didn’t win any Emmy awards, but the show did produce the night’s greatest mystery: Neither Donald Glover nor Lakeith Stanfield were dressed as Teddy Perkins during the ceremony, so who was?

CELEBITCHYMaya Rudolph was so not into the Emmys that she telegraphed her distaste via weird, questionable, and downright bad fashion choices. Fred Armisen is also to blame, because he always is

REALITY TEARHOC stars Kelly Dodd and Vicki Gunvalson are having it out over money. Specifically, Kelly says Steve is only with Vicki because Vicki is rich, and Vicki says Kelly only divorced her ex-husband so she could find someone richer

DLISTEDBenedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Harper are expecting their third child together, congrats! (Eagle-eyed Emmys viewers claimed they’d spotted what looked like Sophie’s baby bump on the red carpet Monday night)

THE BLEMISH“Norwegian death diving” is a real thing and it’s exactly what it sounds like except it also involves making stupid poses mid-air. I feel like whether or not you’re into this is also a social Rorschach test of some sort

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPTony Raines of The Challenge is gearing up for what looks like it will be a pretty nasty fight with Madison Channing Walls over custody of their two-year-old daughter Harper
