I get that TMZ is painting a very unflattering portrait of Angelina Jolie during her nasty child custody battle with Brad Pitt, but is Brad Pitt behind the way that TMZ is painting Jolie? Am I naive to think better of Pitt? Or is he orchestrating all of this from behind the scenes? Wouldn’t he be smart enough to use a classier outlet like People? I clearly need a refresher course in celebrity PR from Courtney. (Lainey)
Before Melanie Lynskey and before Kathryn Hahn, my number one lady crush was Anna Paquin, who was yelled at by a TSA agent for no goddamn reason. (Celebitchy)
No, honestly Lena, you didn’t need to share the dumb names you and your boyfriend came up with for potential babies. (Dlisted)
WHAT ARE YOU DOING, HARPER’S BAZAAR? (Unlike the Fug Girls here, I’m not complaining). (GFY)
Honestly, this is the only take on this whole matter that I really agree with: “There Is Nothing Omarosa Can Say or Do That Could Possibly Matter.” (Slate)
That said, it’s worth understanding whether she has actually violated any laws (she has not). (Wonkette)
I thought I knew what “ashy” meant but this list of the 10 Most Ashy people suggests to me that I have no idea what ashy means, after all. (VSBs)

I love the way they lean into their unhipness. CELEBRITIES ARE JUST LIKE US.

Remember how, earlier today, Donald Trump blamed Troy Balderson’s razor-thin margin of victory in the Ohio 12th special election on the unpopularity of John Kasich. Yeah, so about that, here’s Kellyanne Conway’s husband:
Oh my fucking God. No, really: Oh my fucking God.

This is terrific: A minor league baseball team won on a three-run walk-off strike out! (Deadspin)
If you still have MoviePass, I hope you enjoy watching either Slenderman or … Slenderman. (Gothamist)
I guess I just don’t understand why Nerdist put Chris Hardwick’s name back, knowing that it would cost them a few writers and create a lot of hell for the writers who don’t leave (because they have, like, bills to pay and should not in any way be punished for something out of their hands). I mean: What does Nerdist even gain in doing this? The man no longer has anything to do with the company — re-adding his name is an empty gesture that only serves to upsets people.

This is exactly why I don’t trust Teens! They don’t have any f*cking idea who the best Chris is. (LG)
Congratulations to Robin Wright, who married Not Sean Penn over the weekend and also looks fucking fantastic. (Dlisted)
Caitycat loved Becky Albertalli’s first two books, so she knew she would like Leah on the Offbeat, and she did. "In general, teenagers make me nervous and frightened, but these kids are so sweet and funny. I want to help them with their homework and give them hugs and bake them cookies and help them with their complicated love lives…" Do you have favorite literary teens? (Cannonball Read 10)
