Amy Sedaris Talked To Jennifer Aniston About De-Ghosting Her Houses And Her Love Of Wellness Shit 

anistonbazaar2017

Harper’s Bazaar got Amy Sedaris to interview Jennifer Aniston for the October issue, and it was a ride through her Greek heritage, ghosts and her half-baked GOOP ambition. It’s actually more Amy talking, which Jen did not seem to mind since, well, it’s Amy fuckin’ Sedaris.

The whole interview is a hot mess, and I love it – particularly Amy complimenting Jen’s wedding in a manner most people would take as an insult when she said everyone was dressed like woodland creatures. No, no, Amy. Those weren’t woodland creatures so much as it was probably just Courtney Cox celebrating her newfound filler-free life!

Amy then talks to Jen about her love of renovating homes, but rather than ask her snooze questions about tiles and paint colors, she asked about her home de-spooking process. Y’know…rid a house of ghosts (or just the lingering stench of whatever B-list actor lived in the home before her). Jen said she does that before moving into any home:

“It’s funny you ask. One of the first houses I rented was in Laurel Canyon, and things would literally fall off the shelves, the televisions and stereo system would all of a sudden blast, and the coffeemaker would start making coffee. My roommate at the time, who talked to dead people, if that doesn’t sound too crazy, did a little ceremony, and that freaked me out. I was new to Los Angeles and the spirit, past lives, New Age thing. And now every house I go to, I have a healer or a medium come through. This makes me sound like an absolute insane human being.”

Don’t be embarrassed, Jen. You’re not doing anything a Real Housewife of Wherever hasn’t done before. Actually, maybe you should keep that one to yourself. I’m sure that ghost was just Angelina Jolie’s old Goth self casting a hex on Jen once she realized those “Team Aniston” shirts were outselling “Team Jolie” 2:1.

Jen also admitted that if you go to her house, her kitchen counter probably looks like your mawmaw’s, but hers isn’t clogged with old people pills and a discarded Life Alert. Her pill boxes are filled with all the vitamins she and Justin take so they never get an AARP membership in the mail and look like they should still be invited to the Teen Choice Awards. Gwyneth Paltrow might have competition, as Jen said her dream is to open her own wellness center:

“My dream is to open a wellness center. I have a fantasy where you have this beautiful space with facialists, rotating workouts, meditation classes, and a café with recipes that are healthier versions of delicious foods so you’re not deprived.”

But what about the vagina steaming station?! It seems like every Hollywood huss these days is getting into a lifestyle brand of snake oil, so prep yourself for Jen’s next round of Aveeno commercials about how her Walgreens serum also has magical powers to tighten your hush and somehow take fifteen years off your face.

Rob Kardashian And Blac Chyna’s Nasty Custody Fight Is Finally Over

blacchynadream

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna have been feuding over their 10-month-old daughter Dream since March. It has been messier than Kim in skanky Ursula cosplay. TMZ says the clouds have parted and Rob and Chyna are officially done fighting over custody.

Sources tell TMZ that Rob and Chyna agreed to joint custody of Dream, although technically he will get a bit more than 50% custody. They also worked out a child support deal. It was revealed last month that neither would ask for support because Chyna makes way more money than Rob. Whoever assumed Chyna wouldn’t come for cash deserves a hug and a pat on the head, because that is just too adorably naive. Of course an expert-level schemer like Blac Chyna would try to sink her claws into some of that sweet Kardashian child support money.

According to TMZ’s sources, Chyna asked for $ 50,000 a month. Rob was thinking somewhere in the neighborhood of $ 10,000 a month. Chyna reportedly negotiated $ 20,000 a month in exchange for dropping her allegations of domestic violence against Rob. Rob has also agreed to pay Chyna’s legal bills.

TMZ says that a chunk of that $ 20,000 a month will go to paying for nannies. Apparently Rob doesn’t trust Chyna to stay away from the clubs and take care of Dream.

This comes after TMZ reported earlier this week that Chyna’s parenting was under investigation by the LA County DCFS. Chyna’s lawyer Lisa Bloom denied any such investigation.

I highly doubt this custody agreement will prevent Rob and Chyna from acting like complete fools in the future (this is really just more like a temporary holiday from the drama). If there’s anything upside to all of this, I guess it’s that Kris Jenner has a less-embarrassing answer for when someone asks what her son does for a living. “He used to be a failed sock designer, but now he’s a part-time father! I’m so p-p-p…for some reason, I’m having trouble saying the word proud.

Open Post: Hosted By This Hot $1,650 Sweater Made Of Pantyhose and Stretched-Out Tube Socks 

openposthotcalvinkleinsweater

The next time you run into Calvin Klein, politely interrupt him as he sucks the life out of his latest boy toy’s neck, and give him a million thank yous. Because if it wasn’t for him, you wouldn’t have the perfect sweater to wear when you’re really feeling your nipples, but not really feeling your arms, and also want to look fucking crazy.

Many on the internet have been laughing and heaving at this Raf Simons designed sweater thing. By “laughing and heaving,” I of course mean “furiously applying for a new credit card so that they can buy that sweater,” because who wouldn’t want to use their rent money to buy something that looks like the unholy child of a varsity jacket and an American Apparel bodysuit? B-holes will pop from the hotness of it all when you hit the streets while wearing that sweater and your clear knee mom jeans.

Barneys is selling a prude version of this sweater for ONLY $ 1,150. I say “prude,” because it’s not sheer. Barneys hates nipples, basically. SSENSE was selling the nipple-baring version for $ 1,650, but it’s sold out now. Either SSENSE only had one for sale, or Scientology bought every single one and is using it as their new uniform for Tom Cruise’s Bathhouse Boys Academy.

While many are wondering why that thing exists, I’m sure there’s at least one person who’s glad it does. Somewhere out there, a rich bitch who suffers from constantly cold arms and overheated nipples just fell in love.

HBO Closes Development Deal For Adaptation Of Nnedi Okorador’s ‘Who Fears Death’

After early negotiations, HBO have finally closed a development deal for Who Fears Death, a new series based on the novel of the same name by Hugo Award winning author Nnedi Okorafor.

Who Fears Death is a post-apocalyptic fantasy novel centred on a Sudanese woman and her magical quest to defeat her evil sorceror father. The novel, which won 2011 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel and was nominated for the Nebula Award for Best Novel and the Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel in the same year, is an unflinching tale with themes of weaponised rape and female genital mutilation, but it’s also a deeply moving and wildly ambitious piece of genre fiction that intersects with race, ethnicity and gender.

Okorafor is an incredible writer. Check out Lagoon and Binti for a taste of her work.

Oh, and the show will be executive produced by George RR Martin, but that seems to be getting more coverage than Okorafor herself, so let’s return the focus to the multi-award winning author whose work is actually being adapted.

Jemele Hill vs. ESPN And The 45th President

There’s a reason why Donald Trump has the support and admiration of so many White supremacists.

His desire to build a wall to keep Mexicans out of the United States (and also having Mexico pay for said wall). Saying horrible and largely inaccurate things about Barack Obama and what he has and hasn’t done when he was President. Saying horrible and disrespectful things about the grief-stricken parents of a soldier who died while defending his country. The travel ban. Wanting to get rid of DACA. His response to the hate march and terror attacks in Charlottesville resulting in the death of Heather Hayer. And so many other things that would take so many more paragraphs to list and describe.

And yet, despite all of that, there are people who truly can’t bear the thought of people referring to President #45 as racist. Because if there’s one thing that bothers White people (and if a sentence starting with the words «Not all» is forming on your lips and/or fingertips at this very moment, I highly recommend that you shut the fuck up), it’s not racism or acts of racism. It’s being called a racist or being accused of racism.

Which brings us to ESPN sportscaster Jemele Hill. Who earlier this week wrote this on her Twitter in response to Kid Rock’s claim that he intends on running for Senate, and that the media is making him appear to be racist:

And that soon led to her tweeting this:

jh tweets 1.png

jh tweets 2.png

jh tweets 3.png

ESPN didn’t respond particularly well to what Jemele said about President #45…

monocle-1.gif

…and after recovering their monocles which had fallen into their drinks, they tweeted this in response:

And if that wasn’t enough, White House Press Secretary Busy Philipps Sarah Huckabee Sanders became involved in the situation and seemingly made things even worse when a reporter asked for her input on what Jemele had tweeted. Fortunately, Sarah wasn’t holding a Tiki torch while responding:

Which only resulted in more people showing their support for Jemele and speaking out against President #45 and his administration by stating the obvious with their own tweets and many of them did so under the hashtag #NaziBucketChallenge.

While also pointing out the hypocrisy of Jemele Hill being targeted for punishment because of her words against the President, whereas ‘Miss Texas’ Margana Wood was equally harsh with her words against President #45 and the response to her was the complete opposite.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders wasn’t the only person to publicly go after Jemele Hill for what she said, but former baseball player Darryl Strawberry (yeah, I wasn’t expecting that name to pop up either) decided to get in on the action as well:

From his interview on FOX Business Network’s Varney & Co.:

«I think no one should call anyone anything. President Trump, he’s a great man to me. He was always gracious to me. I really love him, his family, I was on his show, and he’s always been kind to me … I’ve known him quite well and every time I’ve seen him and been around him he’s always been so gracious with me and I’m always grateful for that…I never want to sit and point fingers at someone like the president of the United States. He’s got a job to do, and we all need to pray for him. We all need to support him.»

Uh…huh.

Jemele finally decided to respond to all of this on Twitter:

Which some reporters interpreted as an apology, even though apologizing is not at all what Jemele Hill did:

And just when you thought that ESPN couldn’t possibly look any worse in this situation, ThinkProgress came through to prove us all wrong:

Hill — who was caught in the middle of a firestorm of controversy that began on Monday night when she tweeted that President Donald Trump was a white supremacist, which escalated when ESPN issued a statement on Tuesday reprimanding her comments and which exploded when White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Hill’s tweets were a «fireable offense» — was calm and composed throughout the hour, and the show went on as usual.

However, two sources familiar with the situation told ThinkProgress that this was not the original plan.

ESPN originally tried to keep Hill off the air on Wednesday evening, but [Michael] Smith refused to do the show without her, the sources said. Both sources also said that producers reached out to two other black ESPN hosts, Michael Eaves and Elle Duncan, to ask them to serve as fill-ins for the show — but Eaves and Duncan did not agree to take the place of Hill and Smith, either.

At 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, Eaves expressed his frustration with that day.

While also proving that there were people who had Jemele’s back, and not just on Twitter.

ESPN of course denied all of this:

And did so in a way that’s as believable as James Woods telling us that he doesn’t do cocaine.

(Which he does not. Let me state that again: James Woods DOES NOT DO COCAINE AT ALL!)

giphy (23).gif

See? Amber Tamblyn agrees with me.

As of right now, Jemele is still employed by ESPN and working her desk at SportsCenter, and her colleagues have no interest in throwing her under the bus in order to make themselves or their employers look good.

Considering that there were no lies whatsoever in anything that Jemele Hill tweeted, I’d say that’s a good thing.

Busy Philipps Went Off After Being Confused For Sarah Huckabee Sanders

9th Annual Young Literati Toast

Twitter quickly found out Thursday that Democratic leader Jon Cooper was not a Freaks And Geeks fan. The chairman of the Democratic Coalition Against Trump (isn’t the whole damn party against Trump??) fired off a photo from his Twitter account that he thought was a photo that proved White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has always been a bit of a sourpuss.

Only, it wasn’t that tall glass of Southern sour tea! It was Busy Philipps, who naturally went nuclear over the comparison:

Jon boy has since deleted his tweet, but that didn’t stop Busy for going nuts. See, you should never remark on a gal’s looks, people. It’s mean! I learned that the hard way one time growing up when I told my mom she looked tired and should go take a nap. Thank God for my cat-like reflexes, or I would probably still have a mark on my forehead from the George Foreman grill she threw at me – with a sandwich still cooking inside! Entertainment Weekly said that, even though Jon took the post down, it took him a while to accept that the gal in the photo was actually Busy. Jon might be a contender for Dancing With The Stars next year considering the creative walk-back he then waltzed into:

In Jon’s defense, if you Google “Sarah Huckabee as a teen,” that photo of Busy is the first thing that pops up. Busy added that it’s better to mock a gal for the lies she tells and not by the way she looks. Remember that Jon! Sarah tells those by the hour! Leave her signature growl from the podium alone. You’d rock one of those, too, if you had to craft impromptu defenses for Trump. In other news, if you Google for Donald Trump as a teen, your computer just gets up and jumps out the window.

A Sick Lady Gaga Had To Bail On Rock In Rio

42nd Toronto International Film Festival - 'Gaga: Five Foot Two' - Premiere

This might be the worst possible news for any Lady Gaga fan who has ever typed the words “COME TO BRAZIL QUEEN!” into Twitter or Instagram. Lady Gaga heard you, she was planning on coming to Brazil, but she got sick and is no longer coming to Brazil, queen.

On Instagram yesterday, Gaga broke the news that she’s canceled her set at Rock in Rio music festival today in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil because she’s currently in the hospital.

Gaga must be really sick if she Instagrammed a boring picture of her arm, and not a selfie of her wearing a cut-up hospital gown as a crop-top. About an hour later, another statement went up on her Instagram.

A post shared by xoxo, Gaga (@ladygaga) on

Lady Gaga added in a third post that she was really bummed out about having to cancel, because Rio means so much to her (the explanation was accompanied by a picture of a tattoo that says RIO on the back of her neck). In her upcoming documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, Lady Gaga is shown to be dealing with some serious medical issues. She recently admitted on Twitter that she’s suffering from fibromyalgia.

Gaga had to cancel a concert in Montreal, Quebec earlier this month due to illness. She sent all her fans pizzas as an apology gift for bailing on them at the last minute. Instead of pizza, her Brazil fans will instead be getting…Maroon 5? That doesn’t seem like a fair substitution. Was there no pizza available?

Maroon 5 better put on a Lady Gaga-worthy show. Singing “Animals” to a heavily processed club beat isn’t going to cut it. The people of Brazil expect – nay, deserve – to see Adam Levine teeter on stage in 7-inch art project heels with the lower half of his ass hanging out of a pair of hot pants.

The New York Post Toasts the Launch of Page Six TV

On Monday, September 18, culture junkies will get a new fix when Page Six TV, a frothy news magazine from the New York Post based on the daily’s infamous celebrity coverage, hits screens nationwide. The show, syndicated by Fox Television Stations in every major market, will dish on topics from entertainment to politics served up by a stable of insiders – some of whom, as we learned at the show’s launch party at New York’s newly completed MOXY Hotel, have been on both sides of the tabloid institution. “The first time that I made Page Six was because of one of my dinner parties,” says contributor Bevy Smith, “And it was just amazing.”

Hoda Kotb and Page Six TV contributor Bevy Smith

And if Page Six TV is anything like one of Smith’s dinner parties, it’s sure to be a star-studded affair. “I just did a dinner last night for the second anniversary of Radio Andy,” says Smith, who also hosts a show on the Sirius XM network. “Andy was there, with Jill Kargman, Titus Burgess, Dascha Polanco, and Don Lemon.”

John Fugelsang, Elizabeth Wagmeister, Carlos Greer and Bevy Smith attend the Page Six TV launch party

While Smith’s wheelhouse may be pop culture, the former Fashion Queens host says the Page Six production will focus on more than just celebrity. “We do talk about pop culture and celebrities, but also talk about politics. We talk about media. We talk about fashion. It’s exactly what Page Six is, but it’s brought to life.” So no matter who you are, Smith adds: be warned. “If you don’t want it on Page Six, don’t do it,”
