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.

Ellen Pompeo Challenges Media Following ‘Red Table Talk’ About Race

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.

Lena Dunham Apologizes to Aurora Perrineau — Too Little, Too Late?

Stars of HBO's GirlsLena 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:

Podcast Reveals Truth About Kim Cattrall / Sarah Jessica Parker Feud

Sex and the City

The Truth Behind Cattrall’s Demands

The third chapter of James Andrew Miller’s Origins podcast 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.

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.

TV Tunes: Jessica Lamb’s “Just Don’t Have the Time”

Jessica Lamb singerDiscovered the gem that is Jessica Lamb while watching Teen Mom OG (don’t judge), and the Shazam-worthy moment brought me to “Just Don’t Have the Time,” which you can listen to below. As for who she is behind-the-scenes, there is little to know information on her personal page, so the music will have to speak for itself.
