While most of us have been able to accept the fact that we were probably duped by Jussie Smolett and move on, Empire producer Lee Daniels is grappling with his inner Mulder and still wants to believe. Lee recently spoke with Vulture and said he’s “beyond embarrassed” that he stuck his neck out for Jussie the day of the alleged attack by posting an Instagram video (since deleted) defending him. He’s embarrassed for defending Jussie the day of the attack and not say, Empire seasons 2-6 or getting publicly excoriated at a Diana Ross concert while wearing a Snuggie? I think a lot of us still have a little egg on our faces for continuing to hold out hope that Jussie was telling the truth right up to the part where the body-building brothers entered stage left, but I’m certainly not embarrassed by my initial reaction. But I’m also fully #TeamScully at this point.
Just when you finally got “Let It Go” unstuck out of your brain, Disney has dropped the first official trailer for Frozen 2. But don’t worry, there’s no “Let It Go” in this trailer. There is, however, plenty of ice, snow, and Elsa wearing what appears to be a tasteful mother-of-the-bride gown she found on sale at Macy’s. Meanwhile, Anna is in the same purple felt cardigan I had in the eight grade.
As is his wont, Drake attended game 5 of the NBA finals last night wearing what can only be described as a sexual harassment dry eraser board on his wrist. According to Page Six, Drake was seen flashing a $750,000 Richard Mille “69 Tourbillon Erotic” watch that features a “three panels capable of displaying different suggestive phrases”. Last night, Drake’s watch was set to “I’d Love to Kiss Your Pussy”. As punishment, God made the Raptors lose the game by a single point. #Godsplan
Keanu Reeves is really The Most Respectable Man Alive, and thankfully he’ll continue to be because he’s immortal. Yesterday I was falling more deeply in love with him because he was in a video game and was acting charming and “breathtaking” on stage, and today I’m admiring him even more because of his ability to not invade people’s personal space.
Five and a half years ago, Dean McDermott earned himself a gold star in dumbass decisions by cheating on his meal ticket Tori Spelling with a woman named Emily Goodhand while filming in Canada. It was news that probably made Candy Spelling sigh and think, “Good, one less mouth to feed. I’ll get the divorce papers.” But of course that didn’t happen, because Tori and Dean filmed a reality show about it (True Tori), and continued to make a million more kids. I half expected Tori to take advantage of The Deaner’s five-year cheaterversary with a follow-up series called AdulTori: Five Years After The Betrayal. Instead, we’ve got Dean talking about it on his new podcast.
Robin Givens is denying a rumor that she once did Brad Pitt while married to Mike Tyson, and Mike caught them in bed together. Robin Givens is a much better person than me because if that rumor ever existed about me, I would never, ever deny it. In fact I would put it on my resumé, my tombstone, I would work it into my wedding vows. I would tell me children that there’s a chance that Brad Pitt is their father. But Robin wanted to set the record straight (WHY?!) and let everyone know she did not hook up with a young Brad Pitt.
