How do I know Texas will finish at .500? The media is licking their balls
Nick Saban went 7-6 at Bama in 2007. And I’m supposed to believe that Texas should be ranked 23 in the AP poll? They haven’t been above .500 since 2013. I’ll give the Longhorns two extra wins this season. That puts them at 7-5 with a chance to lose a bowl game and finish 7-6. They’re at USC, Baylor, TCU and West Virginia. And they’re losing to Oklahoma. Time to pump the brakes on the Longhorns if you want to be considered a real football genius on Twitter or in the AP poll.

I was driving earlier today and turned on the FM radio just in time to catch an afternoon DJ try to start some shit about Anna Faris and Chris Pratt. She was like, «Anna Faris spoke out about her marriage to Chris Pratt, and this divorce is going to get ugly,» and then she commenced to quote Faris from the latest episode of her podcast, Unqualified.
Now, I happened to listen to that podcast, because Courtney turned me on to it a couple of years back, and I will listen on occasion. While what the radio DJ was quoting on the radio sounded familiar, I had no recollection whatsoever of Faris talking about Chris Pratt on her podcast, and I would know, because thinking she might open up about her separation is exactly what I tuned in this week (what? I like celebrity gossip. Shut up).
Anyway, here’s what Faris said on the podcast, which the DJ was quoting:
«Don’t be afraid to feel your independence if everything is not right. I made that mistake a little bit, like, feeling like I’m checking my relationship off the list … know your worth. Know your independence. Know that you’re young and that there are so many people out there, there’s so much life experience … Life is too short to be in relationships where you’re not feeling this isn’t fully right, or that someone doesn’t have your back, or that someone doesn’t value you in every way.»
Faris did say these things. But the context is important here. She never actually mentioned Pratt. She was giving advice to another woman whose boyfriend wasn’t sticking up for her whenever his co-worker suggested that he was «pussy whipped.» She hated that implication, and she hated that her boyfriend wouldn’t say anything. Faris merely suggested to her that maybe she’s not in the right relationship if her boyfriend won’t stick up for her.
But, I suppose one could extrapolate those words to infer that Faris was talking about her own relationship, and then go a step further to suggest that Pratt didn’t have her back, nor did he value her, in which case you could go yet another step and conclude that their divorce is «going to get very ugly.»
But that’s a lot of implications. (Note that the radio DJ didn’t come up with this on her own; this was reported on both Buzzfeed and People magazine, as well, both of which made the same implications).
News broke in July that Mindy Kaling is pregnant with her first child, and now the actress is opening up about just how thrilled she is for this next chapter in her life. While sitting down with Sunday TODAY recently, The Mindy Project star told host Willie Geist that she’s «really excited» about her impending motherhood. «It’s so unknown to me. I have a lot of control over a lot of aspects of my life, and this is one where I’m like, ‘OK, it’s out of my hands,’ which is kind of a fun feeling,» she said.
Mindy also hopes to draw inspiration from the close relationship she had with her own mother, who sadly passed away in 2012 after batting pancreatic cancer. «My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us, just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did,» she continued. «My career choice was not something that she was familiar with and she was just so supportive of that. And if I could give that to my child, just that open-mindedness, I’d be so happy.» The actress said that that open-mindedness probably won’t apply to other parents, though, joking: «It’s so easy to criticize parenting until you’re a parent, so one of the nice things about becoming a parent is that I’ll be able to openly criticize other parenting because I will have a child.» Catch the full interview when it airs on NBC on Sept. 10.
I have a shameful admission to make: I watched my first full episode of Friends only about a year ago (and it’s not because we didn’t have Friends in Canada or anything weird like that). I watched all 236 episodes in succession, and there were several things that stood out. Namely, Jennifer Aniston’s nipples.
Vogue recently spoke to Jennifer Aniston about her upcoming TV show with Reese Witherspoon, which led them to talking about her first big TV role. And that segued into Jen’s status as the accidental godmother of the #FreeTheNipple movement.
A lot of people know about Rachel Green’s nipples; there are several Tumblrs dedicated to them. Vogue informs Jennifer Aniston that someone recently referred to her as the “OG of #FreeTheNipple,” the nipple-freeing movement to liberate and celebrate lady nipples. Jen is flattered to be given such an honor, even though she admittedly doesn’t really care that much about her nipples.
“Yeah, I don’t know what to say about that! It’s just one of those things, I guess. I wear a bra, I don’t know what to tell ya! And I don’t know why we’re supposed to be ashamed of them – it’s just the way my breasts are! But hey, OG, I’m not going to complain!”
She’s not lying; Jen’s nipples are just like that. They’re always there! With that being said, Jen’s nipples really should be listed in the end credits of Friends, because they made a lot of special guest appearances. Give those nipples some recognition, they worked hard.
It’s not just Jen’s nipples that have experienced recent popularity. Every season of Friends was added to Netflix. Because of this, Jen says she has a new audience of young women who have discovered Rachel Green.
“Isn’t that funny?! It’s a weird resurgence, it’s like you’re frozen in time. Girls come up to me thinking that I’m still on the show! I’m so proud that it could have a second wind and still feel relatable, though.”
Who are these girls who still think Jennifer Aniston is on Friends? That sounds suspiciously like something Jennifer Aniston’s assistants tell her when they think she’s having a bad day. “Whaaaaa? What do you mean Friends was filmed over 20 years ago? Get out! It must be the Aveeno and Smartwater, because you don’t look a day over Season 3.”

If you haven’t yet pressed «play» on the Netflix docu-series Making a Murderer, then you are likely unaware of the controversy surrounding the 2005 murder of Wisconsin photographer Teresa Halbach. However, if you’re one of the many subscribers — including celebrities like Alec Baldwin, Lauren Paul, Mia Farrow, and Ricky Gervais — who binge-watched the entire series and found the results of the subsequent investigation disturbing, then you’ve come to the right place.
While public opinion on the case widely varies, one constant theme amongst viewers’ reactions to the show is this: that the evidence used to convict former DNA-exoneree Steven Avery and his nephew, Brendan Dassey, of Halbach’s murder simply doesn’t add up. Seemingly planted clues, coerced confessions, and shady practices abound throughout the Halbach case, and the frustrating (and at times blatantly unjust) criminal proceedings left many Making a Murderer viewers with a sick feeling in their stomachs. While Avery and Dassey are now serving individual life sentences for their alleged crimes, tens of thousands of citizens feel that the convictions were undeserved and founded upon bias.
But all of this begs the question: if Avery and Dassey are not responsible for the death of Teresa Halbach . . . who did it? Fueled by the passion that only a stimulating Netflix binge and overwhelming mistrust of the criminal justice system can spark, viewers have bombardered the Internet with their own theories about Halbach’s killer(s). Here are the ones that we think are worth considering — but beware, you’ll only be left with more questions. If you’re looking for more things to watch after this, we have those, too, and if you just want another season, we have good news.
There are so many stories about Mel B’s soon-to-be ex-husband Stephen Belafonte allegedly being a top-shelf creep of the highest order, that you could make a wild guess about his life and not even come close to being correct. Go ahead, make one now! Think of the craziest shit Stephen Belafonte could be accused of. Okay, did you guess “forcing employees to watch ISIS beheading videos“? Well, that’s something that allegedly happened.
One of Mel B’s former assistants, 25-year-old Jonathan (not his real name) tells The Sun UK about some of the fuckery that allegedly happened while he was employed. The weirdest and most disturbing obviously being the times Stephen would gather everyone around the laptop for a screening of his favorite beheading videos. According to Jonathan, Stephen insisted it would make them realize what was happening in the “real world.”
“Stephen made us watch videos of ISIS and Mexican cartel beheadings, saying we needed to be prepared for anything in the real world.”
What part of Beverly Hills did Stephen and Mel B live in? Is there a section where celebrities don’t send their assistants, for fear they might be scooped up while buying $ 13 organic cold-pressed green juice and forced to beg for their life on LiveLeak? And what Stephen must not have realized is that those employees didn’t need to watch those violent videos; just watching Stephen act like an allegedly violent asshole to his wife was probably enough of a sobering reality check.
Of course Jonathan has many other bonkers accusations up his sleeve, because being forced to watch nightmare videos isn’t the only thing he experienced. He says that while working for Mel B, Stephen was the “scary” one. Jonathan, I appreciate that you still have a sense of humor after all you’ve been through. Here’s what Jonathan claims Stephen allegedly did:
Stephen allegedly bought a £4500 ($ 5840) backpack, never touched it, told Jonathan to return it two days later (the store wouldn’t take it back).
Stephen would allegedly spend £1500 ($ 1946) on shoes and would sell his old ones to a charity shop.
Stephen allegedly blew £11,500 ($ 15,000) on first-class tickets to Sweden to meet with a tattoo artist. He paid £6000 ($ 7800) for a tattoo, and flew home.
Stephen allegedly spent £1150 ($ 1493) on a bottle of whisky, but flew off the handle when Jonathan forgot to return a £10 can of paint.
Stephen allegedly used the Find My iPhone app to track Mel B’s whereabouts. When he found her, he would return with her about an hour later.
Jonathan didn’t come to a Beverly Hills Airbnb house fast enough with a set of keys, so Stephen allegedly kicked the door in.
Stephen was allegedly seeing their nanny Lorraine Gilles at an apartment Stephen had rented for Lorraine and Jonathan to live in.
Stephen allegedly kept a box of 24 sex toys in the garage.
Jonathan says that eventually enough was enough, and after about nine months of being Mel B’s assistant, he ran away.
“I got in my car and just left. It was like running from the mob.”
Yeah, a mobster who stores his sex toys in the garage? Who does that? That’s disgusting! Imagine getting picked up in the club, driven back to Stephen and Scary’s for a threesome, and being taken to the garage to pick out a sex toy? “In that box you’ll find two dozen of the finest sex toys known to man. No, not that box – that one is full of old magazines. The other one, beside the kids bikes and the lawn mower.”
Game of Thrones fans understandably lost it when Jon Snow and Daenerys finally met, but unlike the show, Emilia Clarke and Kit Harington have been friends for years now. The duo is often photographed together at red carpet events, and Emilia is even best friends with Kit’s girlfriend, Rose Leslie. As if that wasn’t cute enough, Kit and Emilia say the sweetest and most hilarious things about each other. Arya Stark and Brienne of Tarth better watch out, because Kit and Emilia are giving them a run for their money!
Kit on Emilia
- On the first time he met Emilia: «I remember vividly the first time I met Emilia, which was in the hotel bar in Belfast, before season one. I was sort of bowled over by this absolutely stunning, petite girl with this wicked sense of humor. We became very fast friends quite quickly.»
- On what people don’t know about Emilia: «Emilia is so sweet, so giving, but she also has a filthy, filthy mind when she wants to.»
Emilia on Kit
- On his romance with Rose Leslie: «We like to spread the love on our show. It’s a beautiful thing. She’s one of my best friends, so it’s good.»
- On what it’s like to go out with Kit: «It’s always been funny going out with Kit, because he’s so recognizable. We went to a FKA Twigs gig and it was mental. I went to the loo and in the cubicle on either side the girls were like, ‘That’s Jon Snow out there! Don’t know who that random girl is . . .'»
- On rumors that she’s dating Kit: «[It] literally makes me want to cry, it’s so far from the truth.»
- On finally filming her first Game of Thrones scene with Kit: «Both of us were going, ‘Ah what are you doing on my set?’ This is weird! Usually you start working on a movie and meet (a costar) for the first time and you develop chemistry on screen over time. Here, you know somebody for seven years and you’ve watched their character on screen all that time. So it’s a unique experience as an actor to come together and know the world is watching.»
Another cherished and seemingly important weapon is (re)introduced on tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones during Littlefinger’s short exchange with Bran. As the two sit down to talk, Littlefinger gifts Bran with a dagger that holds a great amount of significance to him. But Lord Baelish isn’t the only person to whom the gift is important; the somewhat questionable gift is actually used during an attempt to murder Bran back in season one.
To jog your memory a little, Jaime basically puts a hit out on Bran after discovering that he survives the fall from the window that he pushed him out of. But when one of his men arrives in Winterfell to kill Bran while he’s in a coma, Catelyn intercepts him, and the assassin is later taken out by Bran’s direwolf, Summer.
The dagger that we see Littlefinger give to Bran tonight is the same weapon that the hitman wields during his attempt to kill the mother and son. Of course, receiving a weapon that has previously been used during an attempt on your own life as a gift doesn’t exactly seem ideal, but Littlefinger justifies it by telling Bran that the dagger is sort of a catalyst for all of the events that have transpired on the show to date — and he isn’t exactly wrong. Had it not been for Jaime attempting to kill Bran twice, Game of Thrones would probably be a completely different show right about now.
Another thing that should be noted in terms of the dagger is that it’s made of Valyrian steel, which is one of two materials we know of that is able to kill White Walkers. Jon Snow and the Northerners are gearing up for a fight with the White Walkers that’s set to occur any day now. So when that day comes, it’s likely that the dagger will prove itself useful. But, for now, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.
Serena Williams and her fiancé, Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian, announced their pregnancy back in April, but the two have decided not to find out the sex of their baby until the little one’s arrival. Despite their dedication to being surprised, Alexis revealed they do have some theories about their baby during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, and one of them is pretty amazing. Watch the video above to find out why Serena thinks she’s having a girl.
