Now that we’re on the cusp of a brand new season, we’ve finally got a reliable Southern Charm Thomas Ravenel update for you. It turns out the disgraced former star of the show, initially fired following his arrest on sexual assault charges, will actually be a part of the cast this year…
CELEBITCHY – It turns out we should maybe be referring to the Lily James affairs — as in plural. Just a week ago, it emerged that Lily and Dominic West had a “Roman bangathon” in full view of the paparazzi. And now it’s emerged that Lily and her Rebecca co-star Armie Hammer almost certainly carried on a passionate affair during filming
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Jersey Shore Family Vacation star Deena Cortese is expecting her second child with husband Chris Buckner in May of 2021. In case you were wondering, Deena’s will be the ninth baby in total for the cast of Jersey Shore, which almost seems impossible given where the show started
DLISTED – Cardi B and Offset are taking some heat for their seeming addiction to Birkin bags. Offset has been flashing receipts for the $128,662.50 he spent on Birkins as a thank you to Cardi for taking him back. And that’s not counting the $20,000 he dropped on a bag for two-year-old Kulture’s birthday
VOX – A very important essay (if also very difficult to read), and no, I’m not being sarcastic: “What was fun? As we adjust to the ‘new normal,’ something’s missing”
GO FUG YOURSELF – Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of Pierre Cardin’s legendary semi-topless, semi-bottomless nurse outfit. Somehow I’ve still never seen this as a legit sexy nurse Halloween costume
REALITY TEA – Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards says she’s mended fences with dearly departed former co-star Denise Richards. After siding with Brandi last season, Kyle now says she “never like[s] leaving things hanging” and has “texted with” Denise to make things right
THE BLAST – Drake just celebrated his 34th birthday with a huge party in an LA club. 34 somehow seems both too young and exactly right for Drake, who has looked kind of 34 forever. But the lack of masks and social distancing in the many pics of the party is troubling — is anyone still legit quarantining, or are we all playing pretend?
THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIP – Kylie Jenner’s latest self-promoting Instagram photo album is Carole Baskin-inspired. Would you believe Tiger King came out this past March? I swear, everything that happened at the very beginning of 2020 feels at least two full years old
LAINEY GOSSIP – “In Totally Under Control, all of [documentarian Alex] Gibney’s chief interests are brought to bear: politics, dirty backroom deals, great Americans brought down by hubris. Some might argue using the word ‘great’ in terms of Donald Trump, but I think any US president hamstrung through sheer incompetence is of note, whether one approves of them personally or not. And in Totally Under Control, Gibney, along with directors Ophelia Harutyunyan and Suzanne Hillinger, lays out the step-by-step bungling of the US response to the coronavirus epidemic”
JEZEBEL – Finally, just in time for the final stretch of Halloween 2020, here are the ten winners of Jezebel’s annual scary story contest. You won’t believe #6

The Washington state Department of Agriculture announced the fortuitous find and total wipeout with a series of grisly videos involving hundreds of murder hornet corpses stacked upon each other in a vacuum chamber.
DLISTED – It was always going to be strange to see Adele hosts SNL without actually singing (H.E.R. was the musical guest this week). Everyone and their mother thought this would be Adele’s reveal of her super secret new album, or at least a single. But she acknowledged the gossip by saying the album “isn’t finished,” then wound up singing during a sketch anyway
CELEBITCHY – I’ve lost track of the number of times a woman who only superficially looks like Melania Trump has appeared alongside America’s current president in public. But it’s happened often enough that there’s a big & growing group of people who think the White House employs regular body doubles to pass off as Melania, and it happened again a couple days ago
JEZEBEL – The headline says it all: “Let’s Hear It for the Best Vibrators to Stimulate Your Days at Home”

VOX – Speaking of posturing: at least five people who work for the Vice President have tested positive for COVID-19. And the VP has been directly exposed to those people. The White House’s response? Send him back out on the campaign trail for maskless rallies
THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUP – Strong tea brewing: “8 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets We Learned From the Recent Laguna Beach Cast Reunion”
LAINEY GOSSIP – “Finally, 2020 has done something right and given us another season of a great show. Miracle Workers is a vastly underappreciated comedy series starring Daniel Radcliffe, Steve Buscemi, Geraldine Viswanathan, Karan Soni, and Lolly Adefope. The first season is about a group of angels trying to save Earth from a disinterested God, and the second season is set in the Dark Ages. The newest iteration of the show will be set in the Old West, with the cast bumbling their way along the Oregon Trail — here come the ‘you have died of dysentery’ jokes”
