Harvey Weinstein is officially out at the company that bears his name. My guess is that the company won’t survive that much longer, either (with 5 board members resigning and rumors that Harvey’s brother, Bob, tipped off the Times in the article that took him down). What “new evidence” was so much worse than the old evidence to prompt the company to finally fire Harvey? (NYTimes)

Guess who has been getting a lot of misdirected shit on Twitter this week thanks to Weinstein?

Meanwhile, Trump went on a Twitter tirade this morning against Republican Chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Bob Corker. Corker, in turn, trashed the leader of his own party. I know this doesn’t feel like a big deal because we live in Trumpmerica, but this is a big deal. Imagine Chuck Schumer saying that Barack Obama “concerns me. He would have to concern anyone who cares about our nation.” (NYTimes)

As many of you probably saw, VP Mike Pence (briefly) attended a Colts football game today and then stomped his widdle feets and stormed out so he could tweet about how darn mad he was about the players who were choosing to protest. Yes, yes, Mikey, everyone thinks you were *spontaneously* so very upset and *none* of your histrionics were staged. - (TMS)

Amal Clooney posed with Isla Fisher at the Gianni Versace Archive in LA. Couple of things: I never remember that Isla Fisher is married to Sasha Baron Cohen; like, never. If it came up on a game show, “Who is married to Isla Fisher?”, I would lose even though I DO know this. Secondly, Amal’s hair is so beautiful. I bet she’ll go gray beautifully and effortlessly. I want to hate her for that, but I can’t. Dammit. - (LG)

Emma Stone has signed a 2-year deal with Louis Vuitton. I’m not a huge fan of LV, but it’s a shit-ton of money and it’s only for 2 years, so, eh, I can’t really blame her. - (Celebitchy)

Bethenny Frankel put her money where her mouth is and not only sent several planes loaded with supplies and food, but also came to the island herself (with EMTs) to bring cancer patients back to the mainland for treatment. - (Buzzfeed)

If there’s a Charmed reboot, Shannen Doherty is not on board. Which (witch?) is not really a big deal, is it? Her character was dead, so I’m not entirely sure why she thinks she would even be asked to be in a reboot. - (Dlisted)

This Stephen King Universe Flow chart is so fucking cool! I need to set aside some time to really look at it, because with the exception of his last few books, I’ve read every King book. I saw this shared by a couple of people on Facebook, but I stole it from figgy. - (Blogspot)

Diane Kruger is wearing a suit jacket as a dress. If I had her legs, I would also wear suit jackets as dresses. DAMN, DIANE! - (GFY)

Used bookstores are a great place to discover new authors. Bothari43 picked up Elizabeth Moon’s Sporting Chance, a sci-fi adventure. Part-way in, she realized she was confused by the book because she had bought the second in a series. "However, it’s a lady captain saving the day, and the other main character is a woman in her 80s, and I am totally down for that." What series did you start reading in the middle?
