I’ve kept up with the Kardashians over the years, and despite being once impressed by their ascent, Season 15 struggled . . . to say the least. One might think the Kardashians would perform strongly given the drama in their personal lives, but this was their least authentic on-screen effort of all time.
Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo visited Jada Pinkett Smith’s groundbreaking Facebook series, Red Table Talk, for an honest conversation about raising bi-racial children. Toward the end of that extremely important talk, Pompeo was asked fishbowl questions, one of which was about her current relationship with former series star Patrick Dempsey. True to form, that one soundbite was picked up by the media, including The Today show, and Pompeo rightfully objected.
Lena Dunham apologized to Aurora Perrineau for publicly questioning the veracity of her alleged sexual assault, and her words sparked even more of my personal outrage then Dunham’s original act. As a refresher, Dunham and her ‘Girls’ co-creator, Jenni Kohan, released a mutual statement that boldly declared that they had “insider knowledge” that ‘Girls’ writer Murray Miller did not in fact assault Perrineau saying:
In a three-night A&E documentary series that details the events leading up to Bill Clinton’s 1998 impeachment, Monica Lewinsky is finally telling her side of the story. She had previously spoken with Barbara Walters, but she was far too young for pointed reflection. With fresh eyes and a firm memory, she walks us through the suicide-inducing horrors that included the threat of prison.
The third chapter of James Andrew Miller’s Originspodcast explores the now infamous feud between Kim Cattrall and . . . seemingly everyone else involved in HBO’s Sex and the City. According to showrunner Michael Patrick King, the issues arose over money and marketing.
The show doesn’t exist if Sarah Jessica wasn’t the blond star of the show, that’s No. 1. Kim was not at the height of her career, Kristin was under her in terms of notability, Cynthia was a theater actress — and their contracts reflected that status
As for why Sarah Jessica Parker was the solo player on all the movie posters? Michael Patrick King explains that because Sarah was the legitimate movie star when the show launched, it therefore makes sense to utilize her star power for all publicity-related materials.
Kanye West is an easy target, and he’s the subject of some much-deserved criticism as of late. But don’t touch the man on the music front. Lorde recently took to Instagram to proclaim that Kanye and Kid Cudi (the Kids See Ghosts rap duo) lifted Lorde’s floating stage in the shape of a box, saying:
TMZ reports that Noah Centineo’s segment with Busy Philipp’s on James Corden’s ‘Late Late Show’ got heavily edited down when his team immediately feared that the ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ star’s image would take a hit when word got around that he ghosted Busy’s friend (a writer on her show). Noah clearly knew the girl in question given his reaction, which you can see below. As for Busy, she seems to take great pride in exposing the antics of others.
The news of Sarah Silverman’s Howard Stern interview is largely focused on the revelation that Louis C.K. used to masturbate in front of her WITH her consent. She chalked it up to mutual freakdom and thought nothing of it, but she made it clear that because they were both up-and-coming at the time, there was no objectionable power dynamic that blurred consent. While that’s certainly interesting, I’m far more intrigued by her more subtle revelation about Jimmy Kimmel.
