Jennifer Lawrence — who has maintained a low profile of late — has been spotted out and about with her new boyfriend. They’ve been together for two months, and eschewing the current celebrity trend, they’re actually not yet engaged! (Lainey)
Richard Gere’s wife is half his age and also now pregnant. (Celebitchy)
Constance Wu is just … damn. Just damn. (Dlisted)
I totally understand why Brad Pitt should pay child support, but also, child support battles between obscenely wealthy people are weird. Like, having $50 million and asking for support strikes me as strange, but also, if you have $50 million, shouldn’t you just be offering support? Like, “Oh here, honey. You need some extra groceries this week. Here’s $100,000. Is that enough?” Like, how much money does any one person need to raise their kids (then again, they have a lot of kids)? (Jezebel)
Warning: If you make soup from the organs of a polar bear, your skin will literally peel off and you will die a horrible, painful, agonizing death. (PopSci)
Omarosa secretly taped Donald Trump on several occasions while working in The White House and she purportedly used those recordings to help land her a book deal, because when you hire a reality TV star, you should expect the behavior of a reality TV star. (The Root)
And you didn’t even have to ask. Yes, there’s a tweet for everything:
Honest Omarosa: she won't backstab-she'll come at you from the front.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 11, 2013
I don’t know that I’d call this an “infamous” shot; I’d probably say “recognizable.” Either way, congrats Kevin!
Wide World of Jorts, Then and Now. Years ago, a paparazzo snapped the infamous shot on the left of me wearing my giant jorts at my all-time heaviest. The photo on the right was taken at the same gas station today. I’m very near the goal weight I was told to shoot for after the heart attack, so big thanks go out to @weightwatchers, #pennjillette, @raycronise & @veggiegrill for reshaping my district, so to speak! #KevinSmith #wwambassador #wwfreestyle #vegan #weightlosstransformation #weightwatchers *People following the Weight Watchers program can expect to lose 1-2lbs per week.
Next time conservatives get pissy with liberals for boycotting something associated with, you know, Nazis, just remind them of this:
I just learned Conservatives are boycotting Jim Beam because Mila Kunis is their spokeswoman. I'm going to buy a bottle to "own the conserves." pic.twitter.com/uYCBLDNbEH— PhantoMantis (@PhantoMantis) August 8, 2018
No, banning Alex Jones from almost every social media platform will not backfire. (Wonkette)
Since I stole one of Sarah’s tweets this morning for a post, I’m gonna let her take the soapbox here on the Oscar’s new “Popular Movie” category, although I’m gonna reiterate that pitting superhero movies against each other still sounds fun to me! (LG)
Intrigued by a picture of fancy cover art, Ale requested Anya Seaton’s 1946 novel of the Gilded Age, The Turquoise from her library. "[B]oy was I surprised when the book delivered was a battered hardcover bound with actual thread and smelling of an octogenarian’s basement." The story inside the musty cover was a gem, however, and reading an old, hardbound book was a satisfying pleasure. When were you last surprised by a book? (Cannonball Read 10)
