Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show Ellen is premiering, as usual, this fall, even though it’s been hit with an Everest-sized mountain of reputation-damaging press. Ellen confirmed that the 18th season of her show is a go. And not only will the show finally resume filming in its usual studio on the Warner Bros. lot, but it will also kick off with Ellen herself talking about the allegations her and her show.
I’m sure she’s got her writing team working very hard on a monologue that balances inoffensive jokes with human-style sincerity. Although those writers probably shouldn’t submit their final draft until about six seconds before the cameras start rolling. Because, of course, there are new allegations that Ellen is a terrible, horrible employer.
Lately, Jimmy Kimmel has been using some of his airtime to get into healthcare, politics, Trump, and all manners of seriousness. As it turns out, a certain group of red hat enthusiasts aren’t too happy about what Jimmy has been getting into.
Jessica Chastain is no stranger to keeping it real (example: her rolling her eyes in response to Johnny Depp’s lazy earpiece acting). Jessica served as a jury member at the Cannes Film Festival, and when it comes to female characters, she wasn’t exactly thrilled with the movies she saw.
This story is going to be a real emotional roller coaster for any of the following: people who cry at sad stories, people who cry at happy stories, people who cry seeing pictures of smiling babies, people who cry when they see Jimmy Kimmel cry.
Kelly Osbourne has an upcoming memoir called There Is No F*cking Secret: Letters From a Badass Bitch, which would be why she’s doing the “Come children, hear my story” pose on the cover of UsWeekly. As you can tell from the bright yellow letters, Kelly talks about being an addict (she’s been sober for eight years). She also talks about being diagnosed with Lyme disease in 2014. The reason you’re just hearing about Kelly’s Lyme disease diagnosis now is because she didn’t want to work it for sympathy and fame.
During the same interview with the Scandinavian TV show Skavlan (via E! News) last week in which Emma Thompson admitted she was once asked out by Donald Trump, she explained that she almost quit a film over the fat shaming of a co-star.
