Duchess Meghan enjoyed a dinner at Ralph Lauren’s Polo Bar restaurant last night following day one of her tacky two-day American baby shower hosted by her tacky American friends. I’m surprised they still had an appetite after a playing the “Name That Poop” melted candy bar in a diaper game but they somehow still managed to dine. Joining Meghan at dinner was good friend Serena Williams who also attended the first shower. According to The Cut, Meghan’s surprise trip to New York City is winding down and she’s expected to leave the city today after her second show and probably after making a pit stop at a bodega for a sack full of bacon egg and cheese sammies for the plane.
Last year the MET Gala brought out all the high-class socialites and artists and dressed them up as Heavenly Bodies. Slutty cherubs, sexy devils and some knights with bad bob cuts descended on the Metropolitan Museum of Art and partied it up liked questionably-dressed idiots. Well, Vogue has announced what the theme is of the upcoming Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute’s Gala and it is on track to be their gayest theme yet. This year the 2019 spring exhibition will be: “Camp: Notes on Fashion.”
Serena Williams had a really shitty week at work. She got frustrated, lost her shit, and got into trouble with the powers that be. After accusing her immediate supervisor, US Open umpire Carlos Ramos, of being a thief (for taking a point away from her) and then abusing a racket, Serena was fined $17,000 for her behavior.

But ok. The USTA (US Tennis Association) and the WTA (Women’s Tennis Association) both supported Serena’s claims of sexism and decried the subjective way in which penalties are doled out. Their support has angered the umpires and they’re now threatening to boycott any matches in which Serena is playing.
Tennis deity and proud catsuit wearer Serena Williams lost the US Open women’s singles final to Naomi Osaka yesterday, but the real drama occurred when chair umpire Carlos Ramos penalized Serena for cheating during the match. Ramos claimed Williams was receiving coaching. Things escalated rather quickly from there. Serena eventually labeled Caros a “thief,” and called out sexism in tennis. She also ended up owing 17K in fines. It got very real at Arthur Ashe Stadium yesterday. Continue reading
Multitudes of fans of tennis and general badassery rushed to Serena Williams defense when French Tennis Federation President Bernard Giudicelli spoke out against her now famous French Open “catsuit” that she wore earlier this year. According to the Telegraph, Bernard preemptively put the kibosh on any further fashion shenanigans and used Serena’s outfit as an example of what’s not going to be unacceptable moving forward. Thing is, unlike her defenders, Serena’s ok with the criticism. Bernard’s her boi, and it sounds like she’s willing to play along.
Nobody likes losing, especially if it means a little bit of postpartum humiliation at Wimbledon, but it sure-as-shit helps if your ass is rich and can lick those emotional wounds in the lap of luxury. As y’all know Serena Williams didn’t do her usual strut her way to victory in her first Wimbledon final since giving birth, but because she’s married to Reddit royalty Alexis Ohanian, she was able to get over it with some Italian pasta in Italy on a whim.
