Rose Byrne Is Pregnant Again

The Met Gala 2017

This is not the Bobby Cannavale news I was hoping for. I have been making a wish every night on the light from an 8:55 to New York (I live under a flight path) for Bobby Cannavale to bust out a gorgeous retro wig and briefs and return to television. Vinyl tanked, and I was hoping someone with a “winners never quit” attitude would give him a second chance in a decade-later show called Cassette. Think about it, HBO – it’s not too late! That’s obviously not what we’re talking about here. The only one who gets to enjoy Bobby Cannavale in sexy underwear at the moment is Rose Byrne. And it’s evident she’s been taking advantage of such, because she’s currently knocked-up again.

E! News says Rose confirmed she was pregnant with their second kid during a recent interview with David Jones online.

“I’m a little tired but feeling good,” she told the site. “Everyone was very sweet on set today, and you always get a little bit more attention when you’re pregnant, which is fabulous.”

Rose was seen filming in London earlier this month in a loose, drape-y top, which we all know is Hollywood’s favorite way to pretend like someone isn’t concealing a baby under their shirt.

38-year-old Rose and 47-year-old Bobby have a 18-month-old son named Rocco Robin. Bobby has a 22-year-old son (actor Jake Cannavale) from his first wife.

Rose doesn’t say when she’s due or anything to that effect. Rose and Bobby are kind of private-ish, so I doubt we’ll get a second trimester exclusive with People, talking about pregnancy cravings or some sponsored content about Rose’s favorite maternity clothes (“I love my…FancyMama No-Leaks Pee-Absorbing Panties!“). All that matters is what they’re going to name that next baby. First baby is Rocco Robin. They clearly have a thing for Italian-inspired jukebox singles. My suggestion is Tutti Frutti. Sure, the middle name makes no sense, but what kid wouldn’t want to be named Tutti?

Jay-Z Addresses That Solange Elevator Whooping

Celebrities at the Los Angeles Lakers game

While he won’t be inviting Kanye West over anytime soon for afternoon high tea (which really just involves sipping Hennessy and chowing down on crustless sandwiches while Beyonce walks around the pool doing vocal runs), Jay-Z finally opened up about that elevator throwdown back in 2014 with Solange Knowles. Surprisingly, it wasn’t to break down Bey’s “Flawless” remix to say “Of that billion dollars in the elevator, Solange represented somewhere around $ 40 and a Duane-Reade gift card.

I guess Jay figured if he could bamboozle millions of fans into buying Tidal, he sure as shit could do it again in a simple interview and played the she’s-like-a-sister card. People magazine says he discussed it during a recent Rap Radar podcast.

“We had one disagreement ever. Before and after we’ve been cool. She’s like my sister. I will protect her. That’s my sister, not my sister-in-law. My sister. Period.”

In case you forget how this bro and sis treated each other, lemme refresh your memory. Sometime after the 2014 Met Gala, the Knowles sisters and Jay shimmied into an elevator at the Standard Hotel with their security detail. Shortly after the doors closed, Basement Baby let everyone know she had just finished reading Harry Potter, because she turned into the Womping Willow on Jay. Beyonce kind of just stood in the corner checking out her manicure and the new tile on the floor. The fight was rumored to be about alleged Becky with the good hair Rachel Roy, who these days can’t open Instagram without seeing at least a million notifications with bee or lemon emojis. BUT that’s all behind them.

‘Yonce looked up from her acrylics long enough to assemble a team to write her emotional response with “Lemonade,” and now Jay is on a giant mea culpa tour with 4:44, because he’s getting TWO million notifications with bee and lemon emojis. He doubled down on how elevator slaps are totes normal, bro:

“We’ve always had a great relationship. I fought my brothers and argued with my brothers my whole life. It just so happens, who we are, these things go into a different space. But it ain’t nothing.”

I’m pretty sure normal brother/sister spats are when you’re seven and throw your little brother off a slide at the PlayPlace at McDonald’s or, I dunno, use your mother’s kitchen shears to decapitate his favorite Cabbage Patch doll. Not go to Slap Town at the Standard as grown ass adults. That being said, next time Bey curates a photo of those two smiling and choking each other by a ball pit, we’ll know they’re just being a couple o’ crazy kids!

The American Horror Story Cast Is Like Their Own Little Cult at the Cher Concert

The title for season seven of American Horror Story is Cult, and it seems like the cast is really taking that theme to heart even after the cameras stop rolling. A huge portion of this season’s cast were their very own cult on Saturday night when they went to see Cher in concert at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino Park Theater in Las Vegas. Colton Haynes documented their hilarious adventures with an Instagram slideshow, writing that he’s now obsessed with torturing costar Billy Eichner. The two were also joined by Sarah Paulson, Billie Lourd, Adina Porter, Cheyenne Jackson, Leslie Grossman, and Alison Pill. At the end of the night, the group posed for a photo with Cher herself, and Colton gave their host, Chaz Bono, a cute shout-out, writing, «Thk u @therealchazbono for showing us an amazing time!» If we could turn back time, we would try to score an invite to this one.

Almost reunited with our whole crew… #Cher squad here we come!!!

You’ll Want to Jump Right Into Leonardo DiCaprio’s Lap While He Lounges Poolside in Malibu

Leonardo DiCaprio is really living his best life this Summer. He had a boys’ day out with Tobey Maguire and Orlando Bloom, invented an interesting new way of carrying a bag, wrapped his beautiful body up in a towel while vacationing in St.-Tropez, struck up a new romance (with another model), soaked up the sun with Kate Winslet, and now, had a little me time in Malibu. The actor was spotted taking a dip in the ocean and relaxing in the sun with some friends on Saturday. In addition to slicking back his hair after he emerged from the waves, Leo did his favorite activity of vaping (and probably scrolling through Instagram) while sprawled out on a lounge chair. We don’t know about you, but his position with his arms outstretched is basically like an invitation to sit right in his lap, no?

Michael Phelps in a Swim Class With His Son Is the Sweetest Thing You’ll See All Day

Michael Phelps is passing on his incredible talents in a big way. On Monday, the Olympic gold medalist hosted the Huggies Little Swimmers Swim Class on behalf of his Phelps Foundation and was naturally joined by his wife, Nicole Johnson, and their 1-year-old son, Boomer. The trio waded in the pool with a handful of other parents and babies, and the cameras caught some truly precious moments between Michael and his little boy, who rode on his dad’s shoulders through the water.

In an interview with POPSUGAR in June, Michael said of Boomer, «I like to be able to chill with him and just relax,» and when asked about the potential of Boomer becoming an athlete, he replied, «I went through ups and downs in the pool when I loved it and when I hated it, so if he wants to be an athlete of some sort, great. If he doesn’t, OK,» adding, «The more you push a kid, in my opinion, they go the other direction, so I won’t push him to do that.» Judging by these photos, it looks like Boomer is totally fine with cruising on his dad’s back for now.

This May Explain Beric Dondarrion’s Magical Flaming Sword on Game of Thrones

Even if you go back to the early months of 2017, there’s one thing about the new season of Game of Thrones that has been a constant point of excitement and discussion. We’re talking about Beric Dondarrion’s flaming sword. The supposed party trick is nothing new; Beric’s been lighting up since season three. But the fact that he so dramatically flames his blade in the early trailer for the seasons was more than enough to get fans super jazzed.

We finally witness the moment in question during season seven’s sixth episode, when Jon Snow and his fellow boy band members go north of the Wall to retrieve a wight and prove, once and for all, that the army of the undead is real. As expected, the suicide mission does not go off without a hitch, and the merry band of men find themselves completely surrounded by wights and White Walkers. There is only one thing to do: fight their way out. Thus, we behold Beric’s brilliant blazing sword.

With the return of the undeniably badass weapon, we thought we’d try to figure out exactly how Beric pulls it off. Is it magic? A parlor trick? Actually, it has nothing to do with the sword and everything to do with Thoros of Myr, who has resurrected Beric a whopping six times throughout the course of the show. It turns out, these returns from the dead give Beric the tool he needs for his sorcery.

In a recent interview with Time, author George R.R. Martin shared a pretty interesting fact about Beric’s physical state: he seems alive, but he’s really just as undead as the wights and the White Walkers. «Poor Beric Dondarrion . . . every time he’s a little less Beric. His memories are fading, he’s got all these scars, he’s becoming more and more physically hideous, because he’s not a living human being anymore,» Martin said. «His heart isn’t beating, his blood isn’t flowing in his veins, he’s a wight, but a wight animated by fire instead of by ice, now we’re getting back to the whole fire and ice thing.» Just like Jon, Beric has got some sort of archaic magic inside him. He’s animated by the Lord of Light’s flames.

This explains why Beric is able to ignite his sword. There actually is some magic inside him, which he’s harnessing and manifesting on his blade. This poses some interesting questions: Is Jon able to do the same, but he just hasn’t realized it yet? Is Jon also a fire wight, or did Beric only get to that point after many multiple deaths? Can Beric use these fire abilities in other ways? Unfortunately, the answers to all these questions remain unclear. Even so, it’s pretty interesting to see how he can use his current state to affect his sword.

There is one question we can totally answer, though: during filming, that sword was definitely, actually on fire. During an interview with Variety, actor Richard Dormer shared some fun technical tidbits about his personal swordsmanship. «The sword is not CGI. That’s real flames every single time. It lasts about two minutes, so I could only use it for two minutes and then it would start to go out so we had to start all over again,» Dormer explained. «Also, I had to slow my sword arm down by about 20 percent. So if I was doing a move, I would just do it quick with the sword. But with the sword on fire, you can’t move that fast otherwise the flame will go out. So you’ve got to move just slightly slower but more effort, you know? Also it weighs three times as much as a normal sword, so it’s just this big club really.»

OK, so Beric is totally undead and filled with fire, and Dormer is able to wield a very heavy sword that is actually on fire. Slow clap, y’all. Slow. Clap.

Kris Jenner Might Flaunt Her Calabasas Chichis In Print

Cannes Lions festival - MailOnline yacht party

Kylie Jenner better enjoy that stank show of hers while she can, because Pimp Mama Kris Jenner has the next Kardashian duo ready to take the mainstage: her melons! Fidget spinners are out, and Memaw mammaries are in! Just as Madonna and her birthday bazookas on center stage while she flubbed the words to her own song.

Anywho, Radar is out with a report saying the 61-year-old Kris is loving her svelte self – sponsored by Slim Tea, Kardashian Korsets, matcha, whatever salads those clowns are always eating on each episode of [insert Kardashian reality show here], and… am I leaving anything out? What better way to show off said slimmed down ways than Snapchatting and Instagraming it.

Kris Jenner looking like a snack! 👀 I see you mommy! #6KidsAndBad!

A post shared by Khloé (@khloekardashian) on

Only, a source says Kris might be moving past social media and get one of the 800 staff photographers the family has on retainer to get it placed in some artsy fartsy magazine. A source says:

“Kris gained a lot of confidence when she shared her holiday bikini photo on Instagram, and she wouldn’t be Kris Jenner without seeing how far she could push the boat out.”

Kris is so confident in her lady bits that she’s peddling that shit out to magazines expecting to rake in top dollar. She’s apparently scoping out the right photog and publication for her “tasteful but sexy” shoot. I hope this means Kris draped over a couch with her AARP card tastefully covering her cooch. Tasteful, sexy, and multitasking with some appropriate product placement!

Taylor Swift Has Returned To Social Media With A Single Reptile-Themed Post

Taylor Swift performing live on stage

Swifties (and president Donald Trump) stared at the sun all afternoon, and all they got were singed retinas! Taylor Swift, the sneakiest foal of all the My Little Ponies, is responsible for many a dry cleaning bill this Monday. All her fans shat themselves over the weekend upon learning she had wiped her social media clean. In real person world, that’s the second step after a new haircut in showing your ex-boo you’re well on your way to a “new you.” In TayTay world, it means you have a new album about to drop, and you’re going to induce the drip, drip, drip of water torture on your fans and have them do some really weird shit for a week so they can find out the name of the lead single.

This morning, Taylor slithered back onto Instagram, Twitter, and Tumblr with a new video:

A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

HAHA, joke’s on you betches, for your “Taylor Swift is a snake meme. Shes TOTALLY in on it, too, because that’s what cool-as-a-cucumber cat owners do. Right?! RIGHT?! She ran out of ex-boyfriends to sing about, so it’s only natural her next “I was wronged” warble is aimed at 80% of the posters on social media. Just kidding. 99%. Well, it could be to them, or just to that court room sketch artist who took a few, ah, creative liberties when TSwift was in court testifying the other week against that DJ ass grabber.

E! News burped up all the clues fans had found that the album was coming, and some thought it was going to tie in with today’s solar eclipse since, well, this is Taylor Swift, and a natural phenomenon is about the only thing left for her to try and upstage. I’m sure every Swifty was on Weather.com watching the livestream of the eclipse expecting her the pull a Katy Perry/Spotify mind game and release the new track just as the moon was blocking out all the light over Nashville. And Karlie Kloss’s house, just cuz.

Apart from the social media blackout, some people with nothing better to do detective fans went into the coding on Taylor’s website and found in that mess a slew of letters that, if you subtracted a letter from each, you got “that’s what they don’t see.” You weren’t going to see the sun this afternoon and omigod it MUST mean that’s the name of the new song!

Some were saying America was going to lose $ 700 million in productivity today due to the eclipse, but I doubt that. Tay kept every cardiologist across the country working ’round the clock tending to her fans and their new album anxiety. DirecTV also let the Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson out of bag, because it says Taylor will be on Good Morning America on Aug. 31. PLUS, if you flip 31, you get 13, which is Taylor’s favorite number. Good work, fans! It’s shit like this where I often think members of the Beyhive must wake up each morning, take a look at the Swifties, and say, “Sure, we overuse the bumblebee emoji, but at least we aren’t THAT bad!

The Ghosts of Thrones Recap: ‘Beyond The Wall’

In the dark depths of Catelyn’s dungeon space, there is a huge, hulking mass of a spirit. It used to be a man. Words were never its strong suit, but there are even fewer of those left now. If you listen very carefully, you can make out a faint muttering. It used to be clearer. Now only fragments remain. «raped …murdered …children.»

Oberyn: You have done some excellent work with him, Lady Stark.
Catelyn: I thought he would have been harder to break. But when he arrived, he was so confused. That poison did much of my work for me.
Oberyn: And yet he walks below.
Catelyn: Part of him, anyway.

Oberyn bows, turns away from the wreck in front of him, and leaves Catelyn to her ministrations. As he rejoins the others, he spots Tywin and hisses. Tywin shrinks away. Far to his right, his brother and his children are still arguing. Oberyn rolls his eyes and leaves them to it. It is the same argument that they have been engaged in for some time, with the same points circling round and round. Vengeance, duty, the ‘long game’… It is tedious. And yet there had been so much potential.

Oberyn: [to himself] Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken. That’s what we were meant to be. Not this.

A movement to his left draws his eye. Margaery smiles at him.

Margaery: Are you here to watch the great quest beyond the wall?
Oberyn: Of course.
Margaery: I feel I should warn you of something. He’s organised a wager.
Oberyn: Who has?
Margaery: Who do you think?

Oberyn chuckles to himself.

Oberyn: Is everything a joust to him?
Margaery: Apparently so. The stakes have changed for him now. But there are few pleasures left to any of us, now we are merely watchers.
Oberyn: There is the pleasure of seeing our enemies destroyed.
Margaery: Naturally. Though I think we are focusing on heroes this week. Would you care to join me?
Oberyn: It would be my honour.

They approach the excited crowd. Above the cacophony of voices, they can hear the booming tones of Robert Baratheon, calling out the names of the northbound heroes.

Margaery: It’s a bit morbid, isn’t it?
Oberyn: Just think, my rose, if they fall in battle, they will join us.
Margaery: I suppose that does offer some comfort.
Olenna: [approaching them] It’s the only comfort I can find in all this misery.
Oberyn: There are a few comforts to find back there, courtesy of Lady Stark. If you don’t mind the screaming.
Olenna: The screams of traitors are music to my ears.

They smile at each other, and look over to where Robert is holding court.

Robert: Final wagers then. When I call the name, wave your hand if you think they will die horribly. Ser Jorah! Tormund! Thoros! Beric! The Hound! Jon! Right, there’s no going back now.
Stannis: You missed one.
Robert: No, I didn’t.
Stannis: I counted 6. There are 7. You omitted that bastard of yours.
Robert: ANYONE WHO VOTES FOR HIM IS DEAD TO ME.
Stannis: We’re all dead, brother.
Robert: He’s not an option, and that’s my final word on the matter.
Stannis: Anyone can die, brother. And everyone will eventually.
Robert: Look, according to that bloody Frog woman, I was meant to have 16 children. I’ve only got one left, that I know of. And I’ve just found him again. I WILL NOT EVEN IMAGINE HIM GETTING KILLED. Just because—

He stops. Stannis flinches.

Stannis: That’s…

He opens his mouth to carry on, but the words won’t come. Flushed, he walks away.

Robert: Seven hells. That’s awkward.
Olenna: [Pointing at the heroes] So are all these conversations. Half of these so-called heroes seem like they want to murder each other.
Oberyn: It is not unknown for strange alliances to be made for the greater good.
Margaery: Of course. Necessity can make strange bedfellows of us all.

They smile at each other.

Margaery: There is a lot of history between our heroes. How kind of them all to remind us.
Robert: That business with Mormont and Jon’s sword… Mormont’s a goner, surely? Who’s got Mormont?

Several hands are raised. The ghosts watch, tense and focused. As the action moves to Winterfell, Ned becomes uneasy.

Ned: Oh no.
Olenna: This is Littlefinger’s doing.
Ned: Not all of it. Arya has always thought the worst of her sister. [He sighs, heavily.] I told her. I told her that they needed to protect each other, look after each other. My sweet girl. She has learned so much, but—

He tails off.

Olenna: She never learned to lie. Not properly.
Ned: It’s one of the skills she learned at The House of Black and White.
Olenna: There is a difference between lying for a short time to complete a task, and lying as a way of life. She never learned about politics. We had very different approaches to raising girls, Lord Stark. Sansa learned about lying at King’s Landing. She got better at it, and it kept her alive.
Margaery: Arya can change her face, but Sansa can control her own. Which requires the most skill?
Oberyn: A face as lovely as yours should never change, my rose.
Ned: She needs to think of the pack.

He looks around, seeking his ghostly pack. His wife is doing her work. His sons are distant; they are smiling and laughing together. His eldest son looks close to moving on. His youngest child, always the wildest of the pack, looks as if he might follow. The wildling woman with him is like a mother to him, and Robb was like a father. They don’t need him any more. But his girls do. Once again, he feels the pang of separation.

Ned: If only Bran could show them.
Robert: That son of yours is a bit odd. But you’re right. That boy knows everything. Why aren’t they talking to him?
Ned: They have been apart for so long. They are still lone wolves. They need Jon to come home again.
Robert: I think he’s a safe bet to come home again. He’s already died once. I doubt he’d come back from that just to die out there in the snow.
Olenna: Tormund and Brienne of Tarth! Any children of theirs would certainly conquer the world. [She chuckles.]
Robert: She’s fond of Jaime Lannister, as I recall.
Olenna: Oh no! The wilding is much better. Jaime is more handsome, but you’d never pry his golden hand away from Cersei’s undergarments.

Robert laughs hysterically, and Oberyn joins in.

Olenna: Why is Tyrion still wringing his hands over the Tarlys?
Ned: He’s got a point about the nature of power, though.
Olenna: This is hardly the time to talk to her about the succession.

She calls to Viserys, who joins them reluctantly.

Olenna: Are there any other Targaryens that you know of?
Viserys: Other than the Stark half-breed? There was once a rumour of a Targaryen baby hidden away, supposedly my nephew Aegon, but that’s not been mentioned for a long time.
Oberyn: My nephew might be alive?
Viserys: I think it was an imposter. There are probably some Blackfyres around somewhere. That’s the sort of thing they would do. [He shrugs.]
Olenna: And your sister can’t have children?
Viserys: That’s what the witch told her. I wasn’t there at the time, of course, having been betrayed and brutally murdered by a savage, for no reason.
Margaery: It does seem a little insensitive to mention naming an heir then. Especially after criticising her. It makes him look like he is seeking a replacement. Someone less ‘impulsive’.
Ned: Is he proposing a vote for a leader instead?
Mance: [calling over to Ned] That’s what I heard. Who would have thought it? Democracy in the Seven Kingdoms.
Olenna: I heard a rumour, long ago, that Rhaegar survived and went into hiding.
Robert: Rubbish. I caved his chest in myself.
Olenna: Did you see him die? Have you seen him here?
Robert: I heard he’d moved on.

There is an awkward silence. Mance attempts to break the tension by singing an old wildling song, but then the ghosts glimpse a shape in the fog.

Robert: WHAT IN THE SEVEN HELLS IS THAT?! A BEAR?!
Margaery: Is anyone else more certain than ever that this was a terrible idea?
Robert: WHO HAD THOROS?

Some ghosts raise their hands.

Robert: Oh wait. No. He’s fine. Carry on.

The ghosts look disappointed.

Ned: What is Sansa doing now?
Olenna: Is she listening to Littlefinger? I take it back. She has not learned at all.
Ned: Maybe she’s just pretending to listen.

They keep watching.

Mance: Wights die when a white walker is killed? That’s not what happened at Hardhome. Careful; keep the wight quiet… Too late.
Robert: Gods, did you hear that?
Ned: This isn’t good.
Robert: Jon’s protecting Gendry! BUT WHY CAN’T HE TAKE HIS HAMMER? I swear by the old gods and the new, if anything happens to him, I’m going to make Catelyn Stark look gentle.
Margaery: The ice is cracking!
Mance: Look at the size of that army. This is what I was talking about. Snow was the only southerner who listened.
Margaery: They are safe on those rocks for now.
Ned: Gendry’s collapsed.
Robert: NOOOO!
Margaery: It’s all right, Ser Davos has him.
Robert: WHO HAD THOROS? Looks like he’s on his way up here, after all.
Mance: No more resurrection for the heroes. Not with their priest gone.
Margaery: Do you really think that the whole army of the dead will fall if they kill the Night’s King?
Mance: Who knows? I don’t know if you can kill him. Worth a try, I suppose. But I can’t imagine it would be that easy.
Ned: Gods, what is Sansa doing now?
Olenna: At least she is refusing to obey the summons personally.
Ned: But Brienne is there to protect her.
Margaery: Perhaps she is protecting Brienne? Maybe she thought Littlefinger was threatening her before.
Olenna: It wouldn’t be out of character for that little weasel.
Margaery: Or perhaps she is protecting Arya. Littlefinger suggested that Brienne would have to kill her if she posed a threat to Sansa.
Ned: You both have kind ways of looking at it. I’m not that hopeful.
Olenna: Now this is more like it: Daenerys Targaryen, taking her dragons to war.
Margaery: And wearing a fabulous coat, too.
Mance: Do we need to add Daenerys and the dragons to the wager?
Olenna: Don’t be absurd.
Ned: Even the most loyal and magical beasts can be killed, Lady Olenna.

At his feet, Summer howls.

Robert: Quiet! Here it comes, everyone!

They are tense as the army of wights begins to approach the rocks.

Robert: WHO HAD JON? Oh, wait, he’s fine. WHO HAD TORMUND? No — he’s fine as well. WHO HAD — wait, who was that? Did he have a name?
Olenna: Oh come along, Jon Snow. There isn’t time to stand around and contemplate the horror of war.
Viserys: Here come the dragons!
Olenna: That was fast.
Robert: SEVEN BLOODY HELLS, THIS DOESN’T GET OLD! LOOK AT THEM! Oh, what I would give to have that kind of firepower…
Viserys: Aren’t they the most beautiful things you have ever seen?

Robert and Viserys are cheering, and then, suddenly, in shock, they stop.

Viserys: Noooooooooooooo!

The other ghosts watch, mouths agape. There are no words. They watch soundlessly.

Viserys: Which one was it? WHICH ONE?

There is a very awkward silence.

Viserys: It was my one, wasn’t it? It was Viserion. WHY DOES EVERYTHING BAD ALWAYS HAPPEN TO ME?
Robert: [Quietly, clearly not finding this as much fun any more] Who had Jon? [A Pause] Oh, thank the gods. He’s all right.
Mance: Don’t thank them yet. He’s alone, freezing, and facing an army.
Ned: [gently] He’s not alone.
Robert: Where did your brother come from?
Ned: I find it’s best not to ask too many questions.
Robert: Looks like we’ll be able ask him ourselves when he gets here. Did anyone have Benjen? No? We’re not very good at this game anymore, are we?
Olenna: Jon Snow looks good with his shirt off.
Oberyn: He really does.
Margaery: Daenerys thinks so, too.
Viserys: She was looking at those knife wounds.
Margaery: Oh, of course she was.
Robert: Ned, I’m still not clear on how this face-changing thing works, but that girl of yours is terrifying.
Ned: I’ve waited so long for my girls to be together again. And all they are doing is fighting each other.

He can no longer bear to watch. He stands, and walks away to wait for the arrival of his brother.

Mance: Jon Snow, King in the North, kneeler to the Dragon Queen. Figuratively, anyway.
Olenna: Which part of that do you have strong feelings about, exactly? Kneeling? Jon Snow? Or the Dragon Queen?
Mance: It’s complicated.

The silence that follows is interrupted by Viserys screaming again.

Viserys: NOOOOOOOOOOOOO! LEAVE HIM ALONE!
Robert: Oh no.
Margaery: No. They wouldn’t.

A horrified pause.

Margaery: Oh gods, they did.
Robert: Bloody hell.

Treasury Secretary’s Wife Posts Tacky-Ass Let-Them-Eat-Cake Instagram Post

The President spoke in primetime tonight. He interrupted Bachelor in Paradise basically to say that we have a new plan in Afghanistan but I’m not going to tell you what it is, but it’s basically the same plan that we’ve had all along, and also «we will win.» In other words: He announced that he’d engage in exactly what he’s argued against for years: An endless war.

«The President looked directly at the sun without any glasses, perhaps the most impressive thing a President has ever done.» An actual quote from Tucker Carlson. Tonight. On TV. In earshot of other people. With the intention of them hearing what he said. My God.

Meanwhile, here’s something we can celebrate:

Elsewhere, this Instagram post from Louis Linton — the wife of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin — may ultimately get more attention than Trump’s speech last night.

Anyway, amends were made, and the author of the photo, Crystal Huff, turns out to be an excellent person. She is the Executive Director of Include Better. She provides consultations, trainings and speeches around the world on diversity and inclusion efforts with a particular emphasis, of late, on Kyriarchy. Anyway, she is super cool, and if I might, I’d like to direct you to her website and thank her for being understanding. Check it out: (CrystalHuff)

Longtime Cannonballer narfna planned to reach Cannonball (52 books in a year) on a cool book. Instead she Cannonballed on an ordinary book that she really enjoyed. When He Was Wicked is part of Julia Quinn’s popular Bridgerton series. It has a grieving widow, a pining best friend, and "tempestuous illicit sex in the Scottish Highlands." What kind of book are you a sucker for? (Cannonball Read 9)
