The Writers Guild of America is officially on strike after negotiations to combat low wages and other issues fell through with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, which represents Hollywood’s major studios and streaming services who are basically wiping their asses with the money they make from the stories that came from writers. And in the war between the writers and big studios, the host of The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon, has been called out by one of his staffers for teetering the picket line between WGA and AMPTP like a high-wire.
A ton of celebrities are COVID-19 positive these days, but not because they were at one of Jeff Lewis‘ superspreader events. People says that Hugh Jackman, Whoopi Goldberg, Debra Messing, LL Cool J, and Jessie J have all tested positive for Coronavirus recently. And it’s really hit the late-night circuit too, as hosts of the big-name late shows are dropping like flies. Jimmy Fallon recently had COVID, Seth Meyers just announced he has COVID, and now James Corden has also got COVID. I hope he doesn’t have a fever, but I’m sure if James gets one he’ll be fine since he starred in Netflix’s fever dream, Prom, and will be used to the hallucinatory imagery. Continue reading
Wendy Williams sat down for a video chat interview with Seth Meyers for Late Night and talked all about the upcoming new season of The Wendy Williams Show which starts on Monday. Wendy has made it clear that she hated doing her show from her apartment. So she’s excited to be back in the studio, which might be good news for her neighbor since she’ll have less time to peep at his naked body. Yup, Wendy Williams is a Peeping Tom, so if you live across from her, she may have said, “How you doin?“, to your naked parts.
If you don’t have your own distillery, dive bar-bought whiskey is fine…I guess? Since Martha Stewart has a leg up in the millennial department by latching herself to Snoop Dogg and implying she’s a rich white lady stoner, Ina Garten has to do something beyond hang out with Taylor Swift to show she’s a cool old broad. So she went day drinking with Seth Meyers. As part of his sometimes day-drinking segment, Seth had Ina meet him at the Corner Bistro in the West Village to toss back a few of her favorite cocktails and then talk shit on fast food condiments.
Because pure cynicism constantly runs through my veins, I guessed that Seth Meyers hired actors to play firefighters and had set designers do a hospital delivery room up as an apartment building lobby just so that he could have a crazy story to tell about the birth of his second kid. But I don’t think that anymore, because that is the genuine look of a woman who’s thinking, “A human baby was just pulled out of my body on the damn floor of a damn apartment building lobby and you think this is a good time for a motherfucking selfie, you bastard.”
If Debra Messing’s red carpet roasting of the E! Network was any indication of how the 75th annual Golden Globe Awards was going to go, then host Seth Meyers confirmed it with his opening monologue. Normally it’s the actors and actresses in the audience who get lit at the Golden Globes. But this year the creeps watching from the comfort of their couch at home (or current sex rehab) were the ones getting lit up. Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey in particular got lit up the hardest, with a little side-dig at Woody Allen.
