Three weeks after we laughed off the silly rumor that Kate Beckinsale and Pete Davidson were new boo things because they – GASP – left a Golden Globes party at the SAME TIME, it appears that despite no engagement ring in sight (yet), Kate and Pete are definitely a thing. Just give me a sec to process this highly important late BREAKING news!
The part of David Bowie has been cast in the first actual David Bowie biopic. South African actor/musician Johnny Flynn will play David as David invents Ziggy Stardust, according to The Hollywood Reporter . Johnny currently stars in Amazon’s Vanity Fair series, and also appeared in Netflix’s Lovesick and as Albert Einstein in the NatGeo series Genius. Good luck, Johnny. Unfortunately, Ziggy will NOT be playing guitar as this movie will reportedly be minus any of David’s music. So you might have a rough ride ahead of you.
I didn’t even know that Adrian Pasdar and Natalie Maines from the Dixie Chicks had headed to Splitsville (as my mom would say) nearly two years ago, because they were keeping it classy and quiet like real sophisticated grown-ups with children to set an example for. But apparently teacup-sized fashion pigs aren’t flying over Hollywood today, because this split is taking a predictable messy turn. Adrain has flipped his “no more Mr. Nice Guy” switch and is asking the courts to award him over $60,000 a month in spousal and child support from Natalie’s pocket book (or cowboy boot or wherever it is that cowgirls keep their loot).
The Jasmine Brand reports that, during an appearance on Steve Harvey’s talk show, Oscar-winning comedian Mo’Nique allegedly got so irritated by the host that she threatened to hit him. We might share a surname but I feel no loyalty. That dude has been inherently slappable for a lifetime now.
NeNe Leakes of Real Housewives of Atlanta obviously returned home from Andy Cohen’s Real Housewife-saturated baby shower in a deep depression. The realization that the spotlight wasn’t really on you for once can be spiritually taxing. To make herself feel better (and probably at the behest of some Real Housewives writers who are looking for a crossover storyline between shows), NeNe decided to whip up some fresh drama based around herself. She’s j’accuse-ing heavy-lidded schemestress Lisa Vanderpump of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills of stealing PUMP restaurant from her. NeNe owned “Los Angeles’ sexiest restaurant”? When? Was there a Real Housewives prequel special that never made it on the air?
The soap opera douche from one of Geico’s best commercials!
While watching HGTV the other night (like I usually do), I thought I was having an acid flashback when a Geico commercial from the 90s came up. But I wasn’t having a hallucination where I was transported back to the 1990s. I was wrong about two things: 1. the commercial was airing in the now. And 2. the commercial isn’t from the 90s. The actress just looks like she shot her scene after working her assistant manager position at Judy’s. And the actor just looks like the “hot one” in a failed 90s boy band. The commercial is from 2003, and it really deserved to win an Emmy, Oscar, and Don Draper Award (that’s like the Oscars of advertising, right?) for everyone involved.
