From the Department of WHY?! comes the news that Hulu has made moves to turn the political fanfic, Rodham, into a series. Rodham is a fantasy novel from Curtis Sittenfeld and tells the life story of Hillary Rodham Clinton if she never married Bill Clinton. Hulu wants to put that story onto our TV screens. In the words of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign Twitter intern: Delete your Hulu account, Hulu.
The house that Madea built comes complete with an exact replica of Madea’s actual house, which itself is just down the street from Tyler Perry Presents The White House (built to scale for a BET show called The Oval. Hopefully someone will actually watch it because that shit was expensive). That’s how rich Tyler Perry is. Over the weekend, every actor, director, and writer in Hollywood in possession of even an ounce of melanin, plus The Clintons, seemed to be in Atlanta to celebrate the grand opening of Tyler Perry Studios. Even Spike Lee, who once famously accused Tyler of “coonery buffoonery“, was there!
Many people have spent the past few days saying Donald Trump’s name over and over (sometimes with as much pissed-off energy as a human body can summon). Mariah Carey might be feeling that sentiment, but she certainly isn’t letting the words “President Trump” come from her. Because Mariah recently let it be known that Trump isn’t her President.
In news that falls clearly in the “A check is a check” category, Beyoncé taught us all that she’ll do more than Coachella if the price is right. One of Priyanka Chopra’s bridesmaids apparently won’t need to make a Bumble appearance to pay off her own wedding catering bill because her gazillionaire dad managed to pay for Bey to come and be the damn warm-up singer at a pre-wedding bash. Who headlined?! The actual voice of God??
After two disturbing days full of news about suspicious packages containing homemade pipe bombs being mailed to several high-profile Democratic politicians and Trump haters, reports are rolling in from everywhere that the so-called MAGAbomber has been arrested.
Yesterday, several suspicious packages were delivered to some very high-profile Democrats, like former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. The internet has taken no time in nicknaming the person or persons responsible the MAGAbomber, instantly making MAGA hats just a little less cute (dropping them from “not very” to “burn it“). More sketchy packages have been sent to other high-profile Democrats including former Joe Biden, congresswoman Maxine Waters, and vocal Trump-hater Robert De Niro.
