Macy's Thanksgiving snafu

THE BLASTMacy’s Thanksgiving snafu was synching Rita Ora’s pre-recorded track so poorly during the parade yesterday that people noticed — and got very angry that she wasn’t singing live. I know I’m a pretty gigantic humbug, but I can’t imagine being so in the holiday spirit that you made it to adulthood without realizing that everyone lip synchs at the parade

DLISTEDOn that note, here’s Diana Ross being her amazing self at the parade and shielding her lip synch from the cameras trained on her thanks to the wind blowing her amazing hair into her face for 99% of the song

VOX“This Black Friday, I’ll be thinking about the title story, “Friday Black,” which reimagines Black Friday as a kind of zombie plague, and has forever changed the way I think about the waves of shoppers who spend the day after Thanksgiving descending on stores across the country.”

CELEBITCHYAn alleged Russian model named Olya Sergeevna is claiming she was Kit Harrington’s mistress *and* that Harrington is allegedly a drunk and a cokehead. She backed up her claims with some blurry-ish cell phone shots of a person who looks like Harrington passed out / asleep. This whole thing is so shady that I’m just going to drop one more “allegedly” in here for good measure

JEZEBELSince the National Dog Show is now held on Thanksgiving Day, we can report that a Whippet from Sugar Valley GA named Whiskey is officially the National Dog of the Year. And he looks like a very good boy indee

REALITY TEA“Happy Thanksgiving. I’m grateful I don’t have to interact with Real Housewives Of Dallas in the wild. LeeAnne Locken may cut my legs at the ankles to watch me crawl away and bleed to death. She’s just upset, you guys. If you upset her, it’s your fault. And then after all that you still might end up on ‘friendship probation’!”

THE BLEMISHChrissy Teigen thinks her feet are hideously ugly, refers to them as her “Asian jungle feet,” and had it in her contract that her feet would not appear in any photos when she was modeling for Sports Illustrated

LAINEY GOSSIPViggo Mortensen apparently torpedoed whatever chance at Oscar glory he might have had by dropping an n-bomb while discussing his new movie Green Book during a Q&A last week
