Ok, I’m gonna’ level with you: Tonight’s Pajiba Love is pretty sparse. I’ll tell you why. I have chronic back pain. It’s pretty awful. I’m not going to go into specifics, just trust me — it’s bad and yes, I’ve already tried whatever you’re about to suggest. My husband, who is the best and most wonderful in the world, bought me a fancy-ass La-Z-Boy recliner and it was delivered this afternoon. I’m never getting out of this chair ever again. I live here now. I am so comfortable!

Bey and Jay didn’t just BYOB to the Golden Globes; they literally brought THEIR own champagne. - (Celebitchy)

Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie looked great at the GG. I looooooooved her gown, the color, the beading, all of it. I wish, however, that it had been lined all the way, not just stopping mid-thigh. Maybe in person, it worked better? - (Lainey)

I’m done with Globes stuff after this, I promise! This is the last one (probably). These were the AFTER the awards outfits. I think this one is my favorite. - (GFY)

SMG and Freddy Prinze Jr. have been married for 17 years and they’re still very adorable. - (SOMG)

Twitter gets on my nerves for the most part, but there are gems here and there. Dictionary.com is one such shiny bauble.

Ohhh, OK. See, those fake-ass rowing machine pictures that Lori Loughlin had taken of her daughters? To show how they were super awesome at crew? As part of their scheme to get them into USC? Those pictures were never submitted to USC, so Aunt Becky and her husband are TOTALLY innocent! Well, that’s Lori’s new argument anyway. - (Dlisted)

Chester Bennington’s (Linkin Park) widow, Talinda, has married an LA firefighter. Congratulations to their family! - (Yahoo)

I’m starting to think there’s no other option than to just fire all the current police officers and start over. - (The Root)

Hannah shared this in our Slack and I couldn’t wait to snatch it. - (The Poke)

Kristy shared this, “Need an exhaustive rundown of all the those accused of sexual misconduct since Harvey Weinstein?” - (LAT)

Jodi shared this, “The Hemsworth family is more than a bunch of freakishly good-looking, built individuals. They’re also putting their money up to help with the wildfires in their home of Australia.” - (Reddit)

Kayleigh shared this and Ciara asked, “how does that thing stay upright?” to which Kristy wisely replied, “Imma guess it has a heavy butt.”


Initially, Vern wasn’t enjoying Jenny Slate’s book of essays, Little Weirds and was contemplating not finishing it. Spending time with a friend put her in a different mindset, "it was with this sensation of warmth and being known that I went back to Little Weirds and allowed Jenny Slate to rip my heart open and refill it with optimistic red geraniums." Has a book ever ripped your heart open? (Cannonball Read 12)

My cats are curled up with me in the new chair, so in their honor, I’ll leave you with Emergency Kittens tonight.

So, this Instagram Influencer …

Posted more than one photo of her looking like this …

But listen, it’s totally OK, she says, because she was just showing her appreciation for dark skin! And illustrating her make-up skills on dark-skinned women! It’s not blackface if you specifically say you’re not racist, right? (AOL)
