It’s been 27 years since Will Smith and Janet Hubert, known forever in our hearts as Original Aunt Viv on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, have talked and frankly I’m shocked Jada Pinkett Smith hasn’t called her to The Red Table yet. Janet’s dark chaotic energy is both terrifying and exhilarating in equal measure. It would be a ratings bonanza! Janet and Will have been feuding for decades. Well, Janet’s been feuding, Will’s been cashing checks. Either way, Janet wasn’t invited to the red table, but she did sit down for a “candid conversation” with Will as part of the French Prince (per Dlisted code of conduct: typo and it stays) reunion special that will air on HBO Max. I guess Will wasn’t ready to have Janet come into his actual (fake) kitchen and risk getting a pot of boiling hot coffee poured in his lap (although you never know with the Smiths, it might be his kink).
Last night, dreams came true for anyone who has ever fought with a friend at a sleepover over who got to sing which part during a bedroom hairbrush duet of “The Boy Is Mine.” Brandy and Monica came together for a record-breaking Verzuz battle. Brandy and Monica covered such hits as, “Baby,” “Almost Doesn’t Count,” “Missing You,” “So Gone,” “Almost Doesn’t Count,” and the self-restrained ho anthem, “The First Night.” But it wasn’t just a song battle over whose discography reigns supreme. For those who are less into the music and more into the drama, well – they covered that too. Except not in the way that some drama-lovers might have been hoping for. No microphones, sound mixers, chairs, or cameras were harmed in the making of this Verzuz battle, because Brandy and Monica have talked it out, and they’re in a better place.
Danielle Staub Of “Real Housewives Of New Jersey” Accuses Andy Cohen Of Being A Drug-Abusing, Grindr Slut
Danielle Staub must not ever want to be invited back to the Real Housewives of New Jersey again, because she has torched the bridge leading her to the King of Bravo, Andy Cohen. As Tituss Burgess clapped for her somewhere, RHoNJ’s resident prostitution whore-ah said that Andy is not setting a good example for his 1-year-old son, Benjamin Allen Cohen, because he’s a drug-using sex freak who hooks up on Grindr three to four times a night. Cut to everyone shruggings over that ~ohsoshocking~ revelation.
Noted oddball and new mom to teenage boys, Sia, is famous for shielding her face from the public (even before COVID-19, when it was cool), but a recent fuck-up involving, of all people, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, has resulted in invites to the #SiaIsOverParty (honestly, I was so high when I first saw that trending, I thought people were trying to cancel salsa WHILE I WAS EATING SALSA, and I had to lie down for a day and a half). I’m still mad at Sia for performing that awful Chandelier song with Lena Dunham back in 2014.
André Leon Talley, a man forever dressed like he’s in the middle of getting a haircut, released his memoir, The Chiffon Trenches, today. 70-year-old ALT leaked some excerpts a few weeks ago, and they did not paint a very flattering portrait of his former Vogue boss Anna Wintour. ALT writes that she constantly fat-shamed him (whaaa, the editor of Vogue?!), traded in her old friends for a younger, more A-list crowd, unceremoniously dumped him from hosting the Met Gala red carpet and Vogue podcast for being too old, and, this is my favorite, says she isn’t “capable of simple human kindness”.
ALT recently discussed the book with Gayle King, and, unsurprisingly, said his relationship with Anna was iceberg levels of frosty (pre-climate change).
After a hiatus that was practically shorter than the time it takes to fix up a Dump and Done Salad, Chrissy Teigen is back on Twitter. And her first order of business was to officially call a truce in the Lady Cookbook Authors War of 2020 with her 48-hour Twitter enemy Alison Roman. Lay down your sharpened spatulas, pre-heated cast iron dutch ovens, and scalding-hot handfuls of pappardelle – for the battle is over!
