REALITY TEAThe Kelly Dodd controversy over the RHOC star’s “Drunk Wives Matter” hat doesn’t look like it’s going to blow over quickly, thanks in part to the halfhearted apology Kelly shared on Instagram in which she insisted she supports “racial equality”

JEZEBELAccording to early polling, Kamala Harris was the winner of the Vice Presidential debate last night; according to social media, Kamala was the clear winner, largely because every woman watching could identify with the face she pulled every time Mike Pence went way over his allotted time to answer a different question than the one that had been asked

GO FUG YOURSELFI once painted a bedroom the same orange sherbet color Ralph & Russo used for way too many outfits in their fashion show and immediately regretted it as the room gave me a headache every time I walked by

LAINEY GOSSIPI’ve been hearing so many good things about Ted Lasso of late that I’m now convinced this show will singlehandedly save Apple TV from the soon-to-be-overflowing dustbin of streaming networks. So far, I’ve only been threatened with the loss of one friendship if I don’t completely and totally fall in love with the show — but I expect that number to grow
