Queen of the woke baes, Ellen Pompeo, usually makes a damn good point when it comes to social injustice today. Just watch this, and you’ll see why we’re all feeling the way Gabrielle Union is looking. Ellen wasn’t done giving Gabrielle a case of the “mmmhmmm, sister!” She’s now coming after Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford’s hour of wine after they (or more likely a staffer in charge of their Twitter account) tweeted about a recent appearance she made on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk. The Hoda and KLG tweet was only about some implied Patrick Dempsey drama, and Ellen didn’t like how it bypassed the more #woke parts of her Jada interview.
On the one hand, I’m side-eyeing this story hard. On the other, I totally buy it and can imagine Taylor Swift mailing an e-engagement announcement to Karlie Kloss that bellows, “ANYTHING YOU CAN DO, I CAN DO BETTER!” when opened. Taylor and her boyfriend Joe Alwyn have been together for a surprisingly long while (almost two years), and he hasn’t been the source of a jaded album or an annoying 4thof July photo shoot – yet. Some now think that’s making Joe eager to lock down a retirement plan (aka propose to Taylor).
Us Weekly says don’t take Taylor’s reluctance to parade Joe around like her other men as a sign of embarrassment. It’s the opposite. This is REAL love and not meant for us meanie pants people to mock. A snitch says Joe must like that because he might put some hardware on that finger:
“Joe is very keen on proposing soon. But he wants to make it unforgettable and extremely special.”
Not to be THAT bitch, but isn’t getting to the proposal stage extremely special enough? Please don’t be that trick who hires the Haim sisters to serenade during the proposal because Taylor is likely already planning that for when she gets on one knee and proposes to you, Joe. The same blabber says Joe is Taylor’s “dream guy” and that she’ll be “over the moon” to get engaged. Yeah, well, that’s because she’ll finally have an entirely new subject to sing about on her albums. Don’t even get me STARTED on when Joe knocks her up, and she’s expecting the first Swiftie offspring!
Color me shocked! Gretchen Carlson had to be the unfortunate #metoo canary down the Fox News coal mine after she came out swinging – and winning $20 million – in her case against Roger Ailes for being a predator who made women’s lives at the company a living hell. Gretchen is now head of the Miss America pageant and cleaning it up, and I figured she’d just ride off into the sunset to count her cash and burn the now-eliminated bikinis from her pageants. Not so fast. Miss America is in a case of martial pageant law, and they’re making a movie about #metoo at Fox News – and Gretch doesn’t like how the movie at all.
Time Magazine Passed Up Donald Trump To Honor Murdered And Imprisoned Journalists As The “Person Of The Year”
It seems like only yesterday (it was) when we were wondering if Time was going to take the easy route and award Donald Trump as “Person Of The Year” since that trick lives on every paper, cable news channel, and Tweet. I was also hoping they’d go the Us Weekly route and award it to Duchess Meghan since it would take all of 15 seconds for Duchess Kate to order her minions get her the cover of American Vogue. Time showed it’s the only mature one of us all and awarded it to “The Guardians and the War On Trust.” Essentially, it’s an award to journalists who have devoted everything for the sake of reporting the truth.

When I heard Jennifer Aniston was once plagued with an issue of ghosts coming out of the woodwork at her house, I wasn’t completely convinced that wasn’t just Angelina Jolie sending over some of the child army to mess with her and move dishes around. Alas, this case of a live-in poltergeist happened a long time ago when she was a fresh face in Los Angeles and she told the story on The Late Late Show with James Corden. While most of us would have made an immediate stop to In-N-Out, Jen hired a ghost whisperer to see what spirits were around to split rent with her. It sounds like there were plenty.
In news that falls clearly in the “A check is a check” category, Beyoncé taught us all that she’ll do more than Coachella if the price is right. One of Priyanka Chopra’s bridesmaids apparently won’t need to make a Bumble appearance to pay off her own wedding catering bill because her gazillionaire dad managed to pay for Bey to come and be the damn warm-up singer at a pre-wedding bash. Who headlined?! The actual voice of God??
