Deadline reports that per early ratings reports, 3.5 million people watched the episode of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, making it the lowest viewership her new Sunday show has received in its short run.

World’s Hottest Triple Jumper Tay Clark Had A Weekend, Chipper Jones Checks In & That’s Not The Right U.S. Open


I was right

Go back and look at this headline I wrote five days ago. “Looks Like It’s Going To Take -16 to -18 To Win The U.S. Open.” Did you notice what Brooks Koepka shot to win the trophy? Yeah, -16. It didn’t end up being a challenge. The tall fescue didn’t come into play like USGA officials would’ve liked. We want to see these guys crumble by No. 9 and struggle to survive by No. 18. It didn’t happen and we’re left with a leaderboard battling it out like it’s some random PGA event in Kansas during the middle of July where Jim Nantz is making me sleepy after a long day in the pool.

You know what the biggest news of the weekend had to be? Holly Sonders appears to be divorced/separated/single again.

It Looks Like Alex Jones and Megyn Kelly Are Set To Destroy Each Other’s Careers

Not long ago, we brought up that Rebel Wilson was suing a media outlet for defamation and I’ll admit, my initial thought was, «You’re suing because someone is publishing your correct age and background? Good luck with that!» Well, she won her suit! Good for her. — (Lainey)

Three weeks into her stint as a journalist for NBC, Megyn Kelly has created considerable controversy with her decision to interview Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones, who is calling the piece — which airs on Sunday night — a hit piece, a smear job. Jones apparently taped the pre-interview, and says he has proof, I guess, that Kelly was being dishonest with him. He also says that he has the full interview, which will put into context the edited hit piece. I don’t know what’s going on, but seeing these two try to destroy each other? I’m here for it. (THR)

Commissioner Gordon Mayor Garcetti and LAPD Chief Beck are lighting the Bat-signal tonight in LA to honor the late Adam West. — (LATimes)

Demi Moore, who still looks ridiculously amazing even without a front tooth, says she lost a tooth due to stress. Like, it just fell right the fuck out! I’m seriously seriously hoping she’s talking about a veneer or a cap and not an actual tooth, because dear god, I don’t need more things to stress about. — (Celebitchy)

A blimp crashed and caught fire near the US Open at Erin Hills in Wisconsin. The pilot is ok, thankfully! I grew up seeing the Goodyear blimp (which this was not part of the Goodyear fleet of airships) fly overhead almost daily and then later worked up the street from the blimp hangar. I haven’t seen a blimp/airship that looks like this one in, oh, I don’t know, 30+ years? If ever, really. That one kind of looked like a giant balloon. — (JSOnline)

The jury in the Cosby case is deadlocked. That’s depressing. What’s more depressing (or infuriating — yeah, infuriating is a better word) is Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy from The Cosby Show) walking all arm-in-arm with the rapey jagoff. — (Dlisted)

Ladies, is your vagina still leaking that pesky menstrual blood and disturbing your «quiet night studying», «The Big Game», «weekend brunch», «day drinking», «boardwalk on your longboard» (yeah, I don’t know…), or your «book club»? Well! Worry no more! Remember the unbelievable idiot behind the Mensez «Feminine Lipstick» that glues your snootch together so you don’t bleed out or something like that? Well, that unbelievable idiot is unbelievably back with a NEW product that still has no idea how women’s bodies work. h/t AsscrackBandit roctavia— (Patheos)

Lorde may or may not be an onion ring expert! I don’t actually know and truthfully, you guys? I don’t actually care. I just wanted to use this time to remind everyone that Lorde’s new album is FINALLY coming out tomorrow! I have been waiting, like, 2 years for this. It feels like Christmas Eve. — (LG)

TK eloquently wrote about the Public Theater earlier this week. And now here’s a fantastic interview with the artistic director, Oskar Eustis, at the Public. He roasts both the NYT and Fox over the Caesar play. — (NYTimes)

Book of the Month Subscription Box featured The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo this month and it looked really interesting. Now Go Fug Yourself is offering you the chance to win a copy! — (GFY)

This? Just because:

The Mama loves Judy Blume, but did not love her most recent book, In the Unlikely Event. Told mostly in a series of vignettes, the story is good, but dispassionate in places. It just doesn’t have the magic of earlier books. Did we know that Judy Blume is still writing books? (Cannonball Read 9)

And finally, these lovely and thoughtful women did *not* make me tear up. I don’t care what anyone else says!

Cowboys CEO Stephen Jones Is Selling His Dallas Dump For Just $8,899,000


Are you moving to Dallas and don’t want to mess with going the Property Brothers route or you can’t get Chip and Joanna Gaines to leave Waco to do a reno? Then stop what you’re doing, call your realtor and make an offer on Cowboys CEO Stephen Jones’s (Jerry’s son) massive 10,500 sq. ft. mansion in one of the top neighborhoods in the United States where the homeowner doesn’t touch an inch of his grass with a mower and has multiple maid services to take care of the inside.

The asking price? $ 8,899,000. I know, it’s daunting, but your neighbors will be so incredible. The house behind Stephen’s is Zestimated at $ 13.5 million. In other words, you’re not going to get losers who don’t rake their leaves in the fall.

From Stephen Jones’s realtor:

Picture perfect on a corner lot in the heart of HP! Built in 1996 & extensively updated, this home is truly exceptional with its quality of materials, fabulous layout & perfect mix of classic + contemporary details. The 1st fl has a rich library & pub room, guest rm, beautiful formals & flawless kitchen open to a breakfast rm & den. The 2nd fl holds a spacious 5 beds & playrm. The stunning backyard comes with a lovely pool, spa, pergola & loggia!

No clue what a loggia is, but it sounds expensive so make sure it’s included in the sale price.

Other highlights of Stephen’s pad:

• 6 beds, 8 baths

• Billionaires live in the neighborhood

• Half-acre lot…not much for your Mexican landscapers to take care of

• 23 miles to the stadium that Jerry built

• 15.5 miles to Rick’s Cabaret

Mortgage: You’re looking at around $ 33,900/mo. before you figure in the approximate tax bill of $ 16,000 a month…let’s just say you’ll want to put a few dollars down to bring down that payment.

Megyn Kelly’s Interview With Alex Jones Got Her Dropped As Host Of A Sandy Hook Benefit 

wenn31460755

One-time Fox News sweetheart Megyn Kelly made her debut on NBC News a little over a week ago with a Vladimir Putin interview, and it was supposed to be a real fucking get, or something, but it left some people screaming at her to take a long course at Howard Stern’s Night School Of How To Really Interview A Bitch, because she didn’t get anything out of him. Megyn is getting shit again and this time it’s for an interview that hasn’t even aired yet. On Sunday night, NBC will barf up an interview that Megyn did with conspiracy theorist and “performance artist” Alex Jones, who thinks the Sandy Hook Elementary massacre was a staged government hoax involving actors. Because Megyn gave a platform to a tinfoil hat-wearing ass nugget, she’s been dropped as host of a Sandy Hook benefit and her Sunday night show has lost a sponsor.

A piece of Megyn’s interview with Alex is about his theory that Sandy Hook was a hoax. Well, who knew that when you interview a Sandy Hook truther, a Sandy Hook benefit will let you know that they want nothing to do with you. The Washington Post says that the organizers of an annual gala for the Sandy Hook Promise Foundation, a nonprofit gun violence prevention group founded by family members of some of the Sandy Hook shooting victims, has let Megyn go as host. I know, Megyn Kelly hosting a Sandy Hook gala is a WTF in itself.

“Sandy Hook Promise cannot support the decision by Megyn or NBC to give any form of voice or platform to Alex Jones and have asked Megyn Kelly to step down as our Promise Champion Gala host. It is our hope that Megyn and NBC reconsider and not broadcast this interview.”

Chase has also washed their hands of Megyn Kelly and have pulled their ads from her show.

It doesn’t seem like NBC is going to drop Alex Jones’ interview. Liz Cole, the executive producer of Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, said that they’re serious journalists and it’s their job to interview people in the news no matter how gross they are. Liz said that people should watch the interview before getting outraged. Megyn spit up her own statement, saying that she also gets the heaves from Alex Jones’ Sandy Hook theory, but that as a serious journalist, it’s her job to “shine a light.” 

Even Alex Jones himself wants NBC to drop his interview into the shit can. Alex calls his interview with Megyn a “hit pieceand says the show misrepresented” his views on Sandy Hook.

So let’s see…

Megyn’s NBC News show hasn’t even been on two weeks and so far not many are impressed, she lost an advertiser and the smegma dingle she interviewed isn’t happy with her interview. Outside of NBC Studios right now, Tamron Hall is cackling into the air as Billy Bush and Kathy Griffin stroll in with their resumes to let HR know that they’re available Sunday nights, and any night really.

Leslie Jones Has Absolutely Zero Chill During a Hilarious Game of Charades

Leslie Jones brought the fun, as she usually does, when competing in a hilarious game of charades during the The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday. The Saturday Night Live actress had absolutely zero chill when she and her partner Demetrius Shipp Jr., who is set to portray the late Tupac in the biopic All Eyez on Me, faced off against the host and Demi Moore. After getting stumped during the first round, Leslie went off on Jimmy saying he rigged the game. «Ya’ll got that white telepathy thing going,» she joked. Don’t worry, she got the last laugh when she and Jimmy impersonated the Hulk during the final round.

Megyn Kelly’s new NBC newsmagazine is not making friends with either side of the political spectrum. The left is furious that Kelly and NBC would give a platform to Sandy Hook truther Alex Jones (and at least one advertiser, JP Morgan, has pulled their ads for the episode), while Alex Jones is also pissed, calling Kelly «cold and robotic» and claiming that the interview is a «hit piece trying to destroy independent media» that make fathers look bad, which is why he doesn’t want it to air on Father’s Day. (Also, because Alex Jones is terrible father). (Uproxx)

Here’s what the Hard Rock has in store for the old Trump Taj Mahal

Is Atlantic City back? Not yet, but the Hard Rock is pushing it that way. They snatched up Trump’s old Taj Mahal casino and are turning it around. Here’s a sneak peak of what they have planned, via the LV Sun: Poolside and restaurant gambling, skill-based slots, fantasy sports betting and hidden VIP gambling rooms are among Hard Rock International’s initial plans for their remake of the former Trump Taj Mahal casino. A wish list the company submitted to New Jersey gambling regulators was obtained by the Associated Press. The partially blacked-out copy offers the first look at proposals the Florida-based company has for the shuttered Atlantic City casino that now-President Donald Trump built. Hard Rock bought it in March for $ 50 million from billionaire investor Carl Icahn. That’s about 4 cents on the dollar from the $ 1.2 billion Trump spent to open it in 1990. A summer 2018 opening is planned. Only thing missing is an actual sports book…maybe one day.
