It’s Valentine’s Day, a day meant to booze and binge eat home alone or spend triple the normal amount on a dinner at a mediocre steakhouse. Ain’t life grand?! Well, if you’re Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, it’s a day to go peak game-ho, and this year that means a private Kenny G concert in the living room.
Michael Avenatti wasn’t able to land his big game fish, Donald Trump (bottom feeding flat fish can grow quite big, don’t ya know), but apparently he’s had his sights set on easier prey too. Michael announced that he’s been in possession of a previously unseen tape of Robert Sylvester Kelly engaging in “multiple sexual assaults of a girl underage”. According to Michael, he’s been representing “multiple clients” with allegations of sexual assault against Robert since April of 2018, and has been doing so pro bono because he cares deeply about “young African-American girls”. I’m sure his involvement had nothing at all to do with sidling up to the white-hot spotlight R. Kelly’s been living under since, I don’t know, about April of 2018. But regardless of his motives, it sounds like Michael may have found a smoking gun, and has turned it over to the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office.
RuPaul and Michelle Visage are taking RuPaul’s Drag Race across the pond for a UK version, and I hope that one at least airs sometime NOT in this time year because I’m getting sick of Ru overload and then a 10-month weave and shade drought. Ross Matthews and Carson Kressley won’t be making the hop, but Ru and the BBC announced Alan Carr and Graham Norton will be taking over as the rotating resident judges.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Panera Bread has a very special treat for lovers. Lovers of wet bread, and sharing said wet bread with your significant other wet bread lover, to be exact. For the next two weeks, Panera’s offering a Double Bread Bowl, which is a loaf of sourdough bread with two holes drilled into either end, ready for a hot soup injection, for $9.99 ( those dummies should have priced it at $6.99 or $9.69). You can share it with your lover, filling the cavities with your choice of “91 different soup and mac and cheese combinations”, according to Food and Wine. For a more personal touch, I guess you could also fill it up with your own thick and creamy concoction (gentlemen and squirters only).
I always knew it must be nice to live in the fantasy land where Mariah Carey’s brain skips, and now we know that it is planted firmly in 2010 when One Direction was getting plucked into fame on The X Factor. Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall, known by me as straight douchebags and known by most people as The Chainsmokers, were on a radio interview the other day. Alex mentioned how they met Mariah one time, only Mariah – presumably not hearing those two have British accents – thought they were a British boy band. Continue reading
Yesterday in Night Crumbs, I linked to a preview of Jussie Smollett’s interview with Robin Roberts for Good Morning America where he said he wasn’t only pissed off at his attackers, but he’s also pissed off at those who are attacking him with claims that he either made the whole thing up or made up parts of it. The full interview aired on GMA today, and Jussie responded to those who think his racist and homophobic attack was really a Grindr hook-up gone wrong. He also had an explanation for those who heard about him not handing over his phone to the police immediately and threw him the kind of suspicious look that his TV dad Terrence Howard throws at an ass that doesn’t smell baby wipes-fresh.
