Kathy Griffin used to be friends with Andy Cohen, and she used to be friends with Anderson Cooper. But unlike some messy celebrity friendship feuds, this doesn’t look like it’s going to resolve itself any time soon.
Apparently it’s Messy Cake Feuds Week. Except unlike yesterday’s cake battle, in which a woman got pissed at Walmart not getting anywhere near the cake she wanted, this feud is about Miley Cyrus getting exactly the cake she wanted. Problem is, she allegedly didn’t ask first before she stole the design from the baker, and now that baker is pissed.
Washington state is inches away from passing a bill that will end clock changes and make it Pacific Daylight Time year-round. Sloth-like humans are saying HELL YES to the change, with only a few sadists in the state House voting to continue the evil tradition of rising in pitch blackness in the bowels of winter with a Vote of 89 to 7. Regardless of this potential bucking of the system and upset of the status quo, the world is still spinning, the birds are still chirping, and Chris Brown is still being an asshole. In other words, nothing has changed. There’s a new tale of Chris Brown assholery today, this time against the Scottish band Chvrches, who publicly stated their disappointment in DJ/Producer Marshmello for working with Chris and Tyga on an upcoming project.
A week or so after cranky dinosaur Steven Spielberg threw a Hollywood power broker version of a toddler’s tantrum over Netflix movies being in the running for Oscars, he appears to be changing his tune. Steven and Ted Sarandos, the head of Netflix, were seen meeting at a members-only club where they probably talked about how they can kiss and make-up and be friends.
102-year-old Olivia de Havilland is Not The One, as Ryan Murphy has painfully come to find out. Olivia is not giving up her long fight against Ryan for what she claims is his totally bogus impersonation of her in Feud: Bette and Joan. Even though the California Supreme Court decided not to review her case against Ryan last July, Olivia is continuing to Vaseline up her knuckles and is not backing down in her protection of her pristine Hollywood image. Olivia and her legal team are taking her case to The Highest Court Of The Land.
During the summer, Olivia de Havilland sued FX and Feud creator Ryan Murphy for using her likeness in the show without her permission. She also turned her nose up at Catherine Zeta-Jones’ portrayal of her. 101-year-old Olivia later asked a court to speed up the legal process because, well, she’s 101 years old and every minute counts. Ryan Murphy’s side argued that any depiction of Olivia was protected under First Amendment rights. They also argued that they didn’t have to contact her for her “side” of the story. Olivia has recently responded.
