Alex Jones banned

VOXConspiracy theory peddler Alex Jones, seen above not trolling the parents of Sandy Hook shooting victims until literally red in the face, has at long last been booted from almost every major social media and streaming platform

CELEBITCHYMeghan “Dutchess of Sussex” Markle and the rest of the British royal family is spending the month of August at the Scottish estate of Balmoral, ostensibly to shoot game but really to develop “a more aggressive strategy to stem the embarrassment caused by Meghan’s dad”

THE BLEMISHAngelina Jolie’s lawyer in her divorce from Brad Pitt is apparently ready to quit over Angelina’s anger and unreasonable demands, and so Angelina is said to be “bringing in another law firm to help”

REALITY TVReal Housewives of Potomac Season 3 is over and we still have no idea if Karen Huger ever got the pizza or not (though, to hear Gizelle tell it, the answer is a hard no)

JEZEBELEvidently facesitting is the sex trend of the summer, only now it’s called “queening” because a bunch of British tabloids were having a slow day and decided to just go with that

LAINEY GOSSIPI know the video for “In My Feelings” has been out for a few days, but I didn’t get around to watching it until last night. It’s really good! Phylicia Rashad is hilarious in it! So is Shiggy! New Orleans is beautiful! I’m not really a fan of the song itself, but this is the rare video that makes its song palatable

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPKathryn Dennis is apparently in talks to become the next “Bachelorette,” in the latest sign that the sexual assault allegations against Thomas Ravenel are having a serious effect on the Southern Charm cast

THE BLASTI wonder how many of the kids on Dancing With The Stars: Juniors knew who Stevie Wonder was when he stopped by the studio to watch his 13-year-old son perform

PAJIBAMarc Maron got Jay Leno to talk about the Late Night wars for one of the only times ever on an episode of his WTF podcast. Leno basically says he got the Tonight Show job over Letterman because he was willing to kiss ass and Letterman wasn’t, which makes total sense and confirms everything we know about the two of them

DLISTEDIn the middle of a show, Britney Spears pulled a classic rock star move and forgot the name of the city where she was performing
