I didn’t occur to us that, in reporting about Amy Schumer’s nuptials this week, that outlets reported Jennifer Aniston was in attendance but made no mention of Justin Theroux. I guess we know why now: They have split after two years of marriage. Heartbreaking. Or something. (Celebitchy)
Meanwhile, in the bad news for Trump department, former Trump top aide Rick Gates has formalized a plea deal with Bob Mueller, and it appears that he’s ready to cooperate. Gates is more likely to flip on Manafort than the President, but once Mueller nails down Manafort, then he’ll likely flip Manafort on the President. “This is consistent with how you’d go after an organized crime syndicate,” someone said last year. Trump in this scenario is clearly the mob boss. (CNN)
The NRA is a Terrorist Organization. Full. Fucking. Stop. (The Root)
The Lifetime movie about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle cast the starring roles, and the casting is goooooooooood. (Lainey Gossip)
Joss Whedon required a lot of reshoots for Justice League however, Henry Cavill was already sporting his Mission: Impossible: Fallout mustache. They used CGI to remove the ‘stache and the photos are nightmare fuel. (The Wrap)
In addition to being a (pretty lousy) prophet, did you know that Nostradamus was an apothecary (does a love potion made from the blood of seven male sparrows, cinnamon, and apples sound good to you?) and also a creator of jelly (morello-cherry, my childhood favorite!) (Atlas Obscura)
New York City passed a law to criminalize revenge porn. Today, that law went into effect. (Gizmodo)
The Hollywood Reporter released The Brutally Honest Oscar Voter Ballot comments, and once again, these comments are terrible. (Except for Dunkirk, because that movie was not good, you guys. It just wasn’t. Stop telling me otherwise.) (Celebitchy)
Ajit Pai, the Chairman of the FCC and the Verizon lackey determined to undo net neutrality, is being investigated for corruption. How utterly shocking. (Motherboard)
When it comes to ice skating pairs, my allegiance lies with the Canadian ice dancers Tessa and Scott (my GOD that free dance Come What May routine, y’all). But that doesn’t prevent me from admiring the other pairs, and their outfits, of course. (GFY)
Last week I linked to a story about Drake buying groceries for everyone in a Miami store. This week he has outdone himself. Bless. (Dlisted)
Lainey has a few thoughts on Jennifer Garner and I agree. I want to see her in a huge box office success. I think she should look into roles on the opposite spectrum of the girl-next-door roles she tends to favor. Can you even imagine how awesome it would be to see a totally bitchy, badass JGar? (Lainey Gossip)
Headline of the day: “Farmers urged to bury their underpants to improve quality of their beef”. Thanks to Pajiban Greg for sharing this with me. (Telegraph)
This New York City loft is a home out of my deepest dreams. (The Cut)
Beth Ellen has a "love/please for the love of god find an editor" relationship with Mariana Zapata. Zapata understands the hard work and commitment that goes into becoming an elite level athlete and writes good slow burn romances, but the errors are distracting. Knowing this, Beth Ellen picked up Zapata’s From Lukov with Love, anyway. The errors are still distracting. Are you watching the Olympic figure skating? (Cannonball Read 10)
