The fact that the hardest working woman in show business has been dead for 60 years speaks volumes about our culture. And since our culture can’t read real good, Marilyn Monroe has about as much chance of resting in peace as Ana de Armas does of wiping Deep Water and all that led up to it from our collective memories. Even if Blonde, for which we now have a feature-length trailer, skyrockets her to stardom, there’s always going to be a faint snail trail left behind.
It’s hard to imagine being able to top playing connect the dots every night in bed with convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein‘s knobby, speckled constellation of back-colonizing skin tags. But somehow Georgina Chapman managed to break the alluringly hypnotic grip back in 2018 when they divorced after she’d claimed she was shocked to discover that her then-husband’s busted relief map of skin protrusions (and the rest of the bloated, abusive, he-beast carcass from which they’d sprouted) had been forced on countless other women who hadn’t actually signed up for the dubious privilege of tending to them but found themselves faced with it, anyway.
In 2019, Georgina connected with a dashing new flesh playground in the form of Adrien Brody. Their coupledom has mostly remained off the radar due to both the fallout from Harvey’s spectacular takedown and the pap-stroll-repellent pandemic. At last night’s premiere of Adrien’s new thriller Clean at the Tribeca Film Festival in NYC, the couple finally went public.
When Harvey Weinstein was publicly exposed as a rapist bastard, his wife of a decade, Georgina Chapman, claimed to have known nothing about his dark proclivities and got the shit out of there. Even though she tried to distance herself from the Harvey scandal, Georgina’s life still got shat on. Her brand, Marchesa, suffered despite the efforts of wealthy elite friends like Scarlett Johansson and Priyanka Chopra who wore her dresses. And even Marchesa’s co-founder left Georgina. But in the love department, things are going good for her since she’s still getting on Adrien Brody. They were first rumored to be a thing in September, and now sources are saying they’re going strong. But are they going “Adrien Brody bought her a castle of love” levels of strong?
Wes Anderson is back with another cinematic masterpiece that will make your eyes go “Ooh!” and your brain go “Huh?”. After watching the trailer for The French Dispatch I have no idea what the plot is other than it involves some sort of publication I’m assuming is called The French Dispatch. But it sure looks nice!

I’m starting to think that some celebrity gossip editor found a magic lamp at an antique store, and wished for three random Hollywood couples to spice up this month’s dating news. First there was Zooey Deschanel and a Property Brother, then the possibility of Jon Hamm and Lindsay Shookus. And now, according to The Sun, Adrien Brody is dating Harvey Weinstein’s ex-wife Georgina Chapman.
The annual Cannes amfAR Gala for AIDS research was held last night, and it’s an event that truly brings out the best attempts in fashion. This is what Nicki Minaj looked like, and I love it all. The Morticia Addams hair paired with the un-dead boudoir eleganza from Roberto Cavalli and the ten pounds of diamonds makes her look like Vampira’s money-hungry hustler sister Scampira. Watch out, rich dudes – she’ll suck the life out of you and your bank account!
