Mendeecees free: LHHNY star comes home after four years in prison

After just over four years in federal prison and more early release rumors than we can recall, Mendeecees free has finally happened. The LHHNY star, who in January 2016 began his sentence on drug trafficking charges, celebrated his long-awaited return home with wife Yandy Smith-Harris just yesterday. And Mendeecees’ first public act after coming home was a pivotal one — read on for the video, plus more details.

LINKS Soulja Boy pistol whipping, #PumpRules drama, 2020 Oscar preview…

THE BLASTIf you hadn’t heard about the (alleged) Soulja Boy pistol whipping yet, you’re about to get all the details and then some. The rapper is being sued for (allegedly) pistol whipping an occasional girlfriend, then having her tied up in his garage and held captive until she performed oral sex on a guard

REALITY TEAJax Taylor is not here for anything about his Vanderpump Rules co-star Ariana Madix. Taylor went after Ariana on Twitter during her WWHL appearance, and is still going after Tom Sandoval as well

GO FUG YOURSELFThe annual Oscars luncheon may have “felt underattended” thanks to plenty of the nominees being in Britain ahead of the BAFTAs this weekend, but there was still plenty of star power and intriguing fashion. Acclaimed costume designer Sandy Powell won the day with her intentional-or-not David Bowie impersonation

JEZEBELThe producers of The Biggest Loser reboot can “wrap [the show] in all the wellness language they want, but it’s the same old shit” — namely, a “cheerfully exploitative” depiction of fat people

VOX“Hollywood is replacing artists with AI. Its future is bleak: How big-budget moviemaking is veering into Black Mirror territory”

CELEBITCHYThis is the first time I’ve ever heard anyone say that going from two to three kids is a difficult transition, and I don’t know any rich people

DLISTEDOn a related note, the OctoMom’s octuplets are now eleven years old. So she has five more years to figure out how to shut down any and all questions about why they can’t all have their own cars

LAINEY GOSSIPOn the one hand, sure, LaKeith Stanfield would make for a way better Joker movie than the absolute nonsense up for eleven Academy Awards in a couple of weeks. And on the other, maybe his considerable talents would best be used in a movie about almost anything else you can imagine?

THE BLEMISHThe Blemish is *not* ripping into Justin Bieber’s new single or Bieber himself, what is happening in this strange abyss of a world

PHOTOS My 600 Lb Life Gina episode: Early weight loss details revealed

The My 600 Lb Life Gina episode is bound to be a controversial one for the show’s viewers. Season 8 star Gina Krasley embarks upon a weight loss journey that will no doubt give My 600 Lb Life fans plenty to say — and we’ve got a brand-new update on Gina’s progress before her debut has even aired. Keep reading, and watch out for spoilers…

LINKS Kobe Bryant’s legacy, Thomas Markle facepalm, Coronavirus explainer…

JEZEBELRight now, the shocking and tragic manner of Kobe Bryant’s death outweighs the complicated nature of Kobe Bryant’s legacy — a fact reinforced by the Washington Post‘s suspension of a respected reporter who pointed out that Kobe’s 2003 rape case was not as open-and-shut as folks might like to believe

THE BLASTIn other Kobe news, fans appear to be by and large upset by the National Transportation Safety Board’s decision to release a few new photos and some video footage of the helicopter crash site. Releases like this are standard for the NTSB, a public agency known for taking painstaking care and a very long time with its investigations

CELEBITCHYThomas Markle is threatening to give a new terrible interview every 30 days until Meghan picks up the phone, which is a pretty shit strategy considering every time Thomas opens his mouth he gives his daughter less reason to ever speak to him again

VOXHere’s the deal with coronavirus, which is for now at least no more and actually far less deadly than seasonal flu

LAINEY GOSSIPI think there’s been a trailer for The Gentlemen before every YouTube video I’ve watched in at least a month, so it’s nice to hear that the movie is in fact “a classic Guy Ritchie crime caper.” At the same time, it’s rather less nice to hear that TG is also “hideously racist and retrograde”

THE ASHLEY’S REALITY ROUNDUPMy favorite lede of at least this week: “If your Nana is single and ready to mingle (and a card-carrying member of AARP!) the producers of The Bachelor are looking to cast her in a seniors version of a Bachelor-style show!”

REALITY TEAMeghan Edmonds will not stop spilling her own delicious tea about her soon-to-be-ex-husband’s pettiness and I have to agree with Reality Tea here, if she’d been this interesting when she was on RHOC the show would have benefited enormously

DLISTEDCats won an award from PETA for not using any actual cats in the filming of the movie. Maybe they should have — if there’s one thing people like to watch footage of, it’s cats doing cat stuff

GO FUG YOURSELFJay-Z and Beyonce threw a Grammys pre-party and it somehow seemed to be pretty chill (when the coverage involves the word “frolicked,” you know it’s a relaxed atmosphere)

THE BLEMISHApparently Cameron Diaz has retired from acting? And she somehow managed to do it quietly, despite having millions of social media followers and not that long ago being about as big of an A-list movie star as one can be. This kind of open stealth is Murrayesque; respect, Cameron, and happy retirement
