Prince Harry and Meghan Markle can let out a huge sigh of relief today. Because no longer do they have to stress about awkwardly changing the subject when one of their new neighbors asks, “So what is it that you do for work?” For a long time, Harry and Meghan have been – ahem – between jobs, due to COVID-19 messing up their ability to make some money from those lucrative speaking engagements they were hoping to land after stepping down as senior royals. But Harry and Meghan are officially employed people, thanks to a multi-project deal with Netflix.
Back in June all you Anglophiles got your knickers in a twist over the news that Kristen Stewart was cast as Princess Diana in the upcoming biopic. While I was a little upset that they didn’t go for someone with a statement nose (a la Dorinda Medley), I shouldn’t have worried, because we’re already getting new Diana content!
Because Hamilton was a huge hit for Disney+, Diana: A New Musical, which was COVID-pulled right before its Broadway debut, is headed to Netflix ahead of its return to the stage next year. The production, which is directed by Christopher Ashley and stars Jeanna de Waal as Diana, will be filmed for Netflix without an audience.

Cardi B is coming to the defense of incarcerated Tiger King star, Joe Exotic, and has apparently offered to start a GoFundMe campaign to get him sprung from prison. So basically, another “I love you and I want to help you out, but I’m not touching my own funds’. Whatever, I’ll take what I can get.
If you haven’t been watching Netflix’s runaway hit docu-series, Tiger King (basically Dog the Bounty Hunter––but gay, and with big cats), you are missing out on a much-needed slice of delicious, leopard-printed Americana. John Finlay, the ex-husband of star, and self-proclaimed Tiger King/fallen HSOTD, Joe Exotic, wandered onto our screens (and into my heart) when the series debuted on March 20, blessing us with his southern-fried twang and his near toothless smile. And in that short time, he’s gone on to become a runaway sex symbol. Well, now some of that Netflix money has made its way into John’s mouth. The pages of GQ are just not ready.
In between wanting to have a baby with his mom and wanting to leave Saturday Night Live because of being made fun of too much on a show that makes fun of everyone, 26-year-old Pete Davidson is still pretty bitter about Ariana Grande and feels like sharing with us how much of that bitterness is still eating away at him, like Ariana’s saliva enzymes ate away at that donut she molested with her tongue.
