There was a lot of messy fashion at the SAG Awards last night (prepare yourself accordingly after that jump below!). But obviously any effort that was put in was immediately cancelled out the second Kate Hudson returned to the scene of last year’s fashion crime and fully outdid herself in a fluffy Valentino vision of countrified love. I say love because, duh, the hearts a’plenty, but also because I love this dress. What’s not to love? Black velvet (check), pink beauty pageant chiffon (check), a high-lace neckline with corresponding bib of ruffles (checking furiously). The only thing missing is a pink parasol. Kate probably left it in the limo for fear of being mistaken for Miley Cyrus in a knock-off production of My Fair Lady called Decent Lookin’ Gal.
Here’s who else showed up and sizzled eyeballs with style.
Jordan Peele wrote and directed the superlative horror flick Get Out. SPOILER ALERT- it was a big hit, mostly because it was scary yet intelligent with many layers about how racism is the worst and so are rich and evil mad scientists disguised as awkward liberals. In the movie, the lead Daniel Kaluuya is dating Marnie from Girls and sits down with her hypnotherapist mom, a particularly sinister Catherine Keener, for a session to stop smoking. She takes him to what she refers to as “The Sunken Place” in his head, and eventually everything turns scary and evil. In a related story, D.A.R.E. failure Tiger Woods played golf with Time magazine’s “Most Incorrect Person Of The Year“ – President Donald Trump. This caused Peele to point out that “The Sunken Place” is real and also goes by the name “Trump National Golf Club.” Continue reading
Beaumont Gino who?
Gee, no, you see, that’s my actual name! My parents are comedians. I’m still learning to roll my eyes properly because I’m a newborn.
If most of yesterday’s news gave you the sads, today is bursting forth with new life! On July 1st, Get Out writer, director and producer, Jordan Peele, and the Brooklyn Nine-Nine actress, Chelsea Peretti, welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Beaumont Gino Peele.
When I watch the Comedy Central show Key & Peele, I laugh. Sometimes I squint and think “Okay, I guess Jordan Peele looks like Adam DeVine.” But when Dave Chappelle watches Key & Peele, he gets sad. Sorry, A-A-Ron, but you done messed up again.
On Saturday, 38-year-old Chelsea Peretti (Gina Linetti from Brooklyn Nine-Nine) announced that she’s pregnant in a pretty obvious way. Chelsea Instagrammed a picture of herself looking several months knocked up with a baby she made with her 37-year-old husband Jordan Peele. She captioned the photo: “beyonce schmonce.” It was very kind of Chelsea to give Beyonce many days worth of baby announcement attention before yanking the spotlight away like that.
Chelsea has also been hiding her pregnancy for the past couple months and probably because she’s private like that. When Chelsea and Jordan got married earlier last year, they did it in secret and their only witness was their dog.
This will be both Chelsea and Jordan’s first kid. The pun-loving middle-aged mom in me really wants to make a joke about how they should totally name their baby Orange. But really, Orange Peele sounds like a perfect name for a Florida drag queen, and that automatically classifies it as a good name.
Chelsea Peretti’s pregnancy announcement does more than just let people know she’s knocked up; it also shows that she’s absolutely nothing like her character on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. If Gina Linetti wanted to let everyone know she was pregnant, she too would have referenced Beyonce. But it wouldn’t have been via a two-word selfie caption. She would have recreated Beyonce’s pregnancy shoot by having Scully and Hitchcock take a red car from the impound lot and stuff it full of parking tickets folded into flowers.
