LINKS Candiace Dillard’s death wish, Twitter’s White-Black Gay Guy, White House despair…

REALITY TEAYou may recall that a few months ago, RHOP star Candiace Dillard spewed some hate at a DC-area blogger who sided with Monique in the pair’s fight. Apparently, Candiace knew that the blogger suffered from several medical issues, including seemingly serious kidney problems. And in a video response to his post on the fight, she said she hoped he “dropped dead.” Well, Candiace Dillard’s death wish has come true, because the blogger — whose name was Khyle Paylor — recently died. Candiace has yet to comment on Khyle’s death or her original comments

JEZEBELAt first, it looked like the white Republican politician from Pennsylvania saying he was a “black gay guy” on Twitter had just forgotten to log into his burner account first. But then it turned out that the alleged burner account — which really did look fake as hell — belongs to a real black gay guy? And the black gay guy is also Patti LaBelle’s son? Twitter has gotten even weirder since the election

CELEBITCHYIt looks like the White House is still standing in name only. Apparently even the most die-hard staffers for America’s current president know he lost the election and that his legal challenges couldn’t stand up to a stiff breeze. The president himself remains in denial

THE BLASTBritney Spears’ mother, Lynne Spears, says she agrees with Britney that Jamie Spears “should be removed as co-conservator of the singer’s estate.” Lynne’s lawyer has said as much in court in defense of Britney

LAINEY GOSSIPSo it looks like Dominic West is exactly as horrible a guy as everyone suspected. Weeks after news broke of his affair with his The Affair co-star Lily James — and the subsequent total sham photo shoot West cajoled his wife, Catherine Fitzgerald, into posing alongside him for — the couple’s marriage appears to be over. Catherine is apparently dropping Dominic like the skeleton of a bird she fished out of her dog’s mouth thinking it was a stick because “Lily means more to [Dominic] than just a fling.” I was less disgusted by the bird corpse

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPKylie Jenner is the first Kardashian to reach the elusive 200 million follower plateau on Instagram. (She’s nowhere near the top — #1 is Christiano Ronaldo, with 242 million.) Raise your hand if you remember way back when she was just a little 50 million follower-tyke. She wasn’t even public with Tyga back then! Aah, they sure do grow up fast

VOXApparently Hillbilly Elegy is garbage, so this is a nice instance of the poster telling you exactly how good the movie will be

PHOTO Here’s why RHOSLC star Mary Cosby’s husband is also her grandfather

When you’ve got a personal life as unusual as that of Mary Cosby, there’s bound to be a ton of misinformation out there. The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City star has drawn more headlines than any other cast member before the show has even aired. Right off the top, we’ll try to clear the air: Yes, Mary Cosby’s husband is also her grandfather. No, the two are not related by blood. Yes, technically the man Mary married is her *step* grandfather. And no, the story of how they came to be wife and husband is not like any other in Real Housewives history.

The Kardashians are totally buying themselves an island for Christmas this year

We’re only a couple of weeks removed from Kim Kardashian’s tone-deaf 40th birthday party on a private island. But Khloe Kardashian just gave us every reason to believe the family is set to one-up themselves on the decadence scale. It seems we should expect Kardashian Christmas Island 2020 for the holidays this year — yes, that’s right, the family is going to treat itself to its very own deserted island COVID-free getaway.

JEZEBELThe Republican Party is lining up behind America’s current president in trying to undermine confidence in the 2020 presidential election — which election said current president lost, to Joe Biden. Biden’s first day as President of the United States will be January 20th, 2021

VOXI didn’t know it was possible to explain how Joe Biden will “fix Trump’s global mess” in just 600 words, but here’s Vox getting it done

THE HOLLYWOOD GOSSIPRemember how Lil Wayne was one of a slew of rappers who endorsed America’s current president very late in the election cycle because they all valued money over people?
