Did Donald Trump’s Dentures Slip Out During a News Conference Today?

It’s late. Lainey’s under the weather, and I just got home from pub trivia (where we won) and I’m on the tipsy side. Let’s do this quick and dirty (insert your mom joke here) (also, sorry for the lateness, CaliCheeseSucks):

Margot Robbie walked the red carpet with Tonya Harding at the I, Tonya premiere, in case you want to compare and contrast. (Lainey)

You guys have no idea how much I love Eliza Coupe. Eliza Coupe is kind of a kook. Also, she’s married to the founder of Shakeology. Damnit, this is why I don’t like to do Pajiba Love. I find out things about people I adore that make me adore them less. (Celebitchy)

Oh God, this doesn’t help, either. Oprah asked Jennifer Lawrence if she could have a dinner party with anyone, dead or alive, who would it be? Spoiler: They’re all alive, and Jennifer Lawrence could probably have a dinner party with them on any given Thursday. (Dlisted)

Here’s 25 things from the director’s commentary of the best «Christmas» movie of this decade. NO ONE DENIES THIS. (FSR)

In Pajiba-related podcast news, our own Courtney will be on Travis McElroy’s podcast Trends Like These on Friday to discuss Danny Masterson (subscribe here) and Kristy is on this week’s Slashfilm podcast talking Ladybird. (/Film)

Speaking of Courtney, she takes a closer look at «the most bonkers and fun delight of a misandrist spectacle ever to appear in mine eyes.» (SyFy)

More evidence that Trump is an evil pile of discarded foreskin? He thinks it is «low class» to own a pet. (The Hill)

So, John Conyers’ son, who may or may not be running to replace his father, should definitely not run to replace his father. Dude’s got some serious baggage. (The Root)

What are you wearing, Diane Kruger?! And why are you wearing it? (GFY)

OK, fine. I begrudgingly concede that Evans is kind of close to being the Best Chris but is still definitely not the Best Chris.

The Best NOT CHRIS has a great idea, too:

Does Donald Trump wear dentures? Because it sure as hell looks like it. (OK, maybe they’re just «porcelain restorations,» or there are too many veneers. I dunno. Whatever. Point is, the President’s teeth are ganked, but they’re hilarious. (Newsweek)

Mikki Blu quickly recognized Jennifer Crusie’s Bet Me as a spinster and rake romance set in contemporary Chicago, and she was bored. Not that there’s anything wrong with updating a historical romance trope, but there was too much focus on Min’s weight and way too much chicken marsala. How many times could you eat chicken marsala in a week? (Cannonball Read 9)

Today In Bryan Singer News: We’ve Found One Shoe, Now Where’s The Other?

Remember when Bryan Singer’s name was mysterious trending on Twitter as the allegations against Kevin Spacey came out?

There’s a strong chance that it’s NOT because Singer coincidentally directed Spacey in The Usual Suspects way back when. Since yesterday afternoon there has been a developing story around Singer that, while not damning in and of itself, seems sort of like the news equivalent of that arthritic ache old timers get when a storms a-comin’.

It started with The Hollywood Reporter‘s exclusive reveal that Fox had booted Singer out of the director’s chair on Bohemian Rhapsody, their upcoming Queen biopic starring Rami Malek as Freddy Mercury. It was a bold move on the part of the studio, made all the more surprising because the film only had two more weeks of principal production to go. That’s a hell of a time to can your director, even if the decision was made after Singer reportedly stopped showing up on set, necessitating a production shut down on Dec. 1.

THR‘s report is a juicy one with all the fun elements of unprofessional conduct. A studio that warned Singer not to step out of line before production began, likely due to his track record of not showing up to set and getting in fights with his actors. A director who — yup you guessed it — started not showing up to work and pissing off his cast, while his cinematographer would have to step in and shoot in his stead. Singer and Malek reportedly got into it after Malek complained to the studio about Singer’s unreliability and disappearing act, and the argument got so heated that Singer threw something (not at Malek, but still). Malek’s co-star Tom Hollander also supposedly quit the film because of Singer’s behavior, though he was eventually coaxed back.

Everyone supposedly settled their differences… and then Singer took off for the Thanksgiving break and never returned to set (the film is shooting in London, and he’s supposedly been in the U.S. for the past week and a half).

Obviously Singer’s version of events is different — he cites health concerns for his parents as the reason why he wanted time away from the film, which the studio was unwilling to accommodate.

With fewer than three weeks to shoot remaining, I asked Fox for some time off so I could return to the U.S. to deal with pressing health matters concerning one of my parents. This was a very taxing experience, which ultimately took a serious toll on my own health. Unfortunately, the studio was unwilling to accommodate me and terminated my services. This was not my decision and it was beyond my control. Rumors that my unexpected departure from the film was sparked by a dispute I had with Rami Malek are not true. While, at times, we did have creative differences on set, Rami and I successfully put those differences behind us and continued to work on the film together until just prior to Thanksgiving. I wanted nothing more than to be able to finish this project and help honor the legacy of Freddie Mercury and Queen, but Fox would not permit me to do so because I needed to temporarily put my health, and the health of my loved ones, first.

So, OK, taken at face value this is just the story of a troubled film shoot. What’s the big deal? Well, there are other factors that hint at something larger developing. Like, for instance, this:

Or the fact that Fox didn’t renew their first look deal with Singer’s production company, Bad Hat Harry, which ended in October. And now they’re clearing out their office on the Twentieth Century Fox studio lot. Mind you, Singer is the guy behind almost everything X-Men so it’s odd that Fox would be cutting ties with him entirely…

If you’re sick of reading between the lines, you can just go to Radar who have helpfully filled in all the juicy gossip for you. But really, you know where this is going…

For years there have been rumors about Singer’s sexual misconduct, including pedophilia. In 2014 a man named Michael Egan filed a civil suit against Singer and a few other Hollywood figures, accusing them of sexual assault starting when he was a mid-teen. The case fell apart though, and it didn’t seem to impact Singer’s career (it doesn’t hurt that Egan later pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit securities and wire fraud).

Of course, there’s also this:

Right now everyone seems to be waiting to see if Singer is going to be the next Hollywood figure to fall in the face of sexual misconduct allegations. And while none of the current spate of Singer news seems to have any connection to it, who knows what’s really going on behind the scenes. Time will tell, but it definitely feels like something big is on the horizon …

Doak Campbell Stadium Is About As Empty As You’d Expect Today

Yep, that’s pretty much what we all expected, but actually seeing Doak Campbell that empty on a Saturday afternoon is wild.

There’s a few things at play here. 1. FSU stinks, 2. their head coach just dipped out for a shit load of Texas oil money, and 3. this game was re-scheduled because of Hurricane Irma and I’m assuming most people would rather be home watching Championship Saturday than a little FSU-ULM action.

But still, this is such a sad sight to see.

Chuck Pagano’s Presser Today Was Something


Colts head coach Chuck Pagano provided the best moment of his team’s season by getting a little nutty during his press conference on Monday.

To say this was the opposite of a Belichick presser would an understatement, as Chuck touched on Groundhog Day, sang some Sonny and Cher, and randomly discussed weather patterns in relation to his team blowing leads.The Colts should just really show him the door now.

It’s been a season of losses and losses, plus reports of how badly the team screwed up franchise quarterback Andrew Luck, so yeah, I can understand checking out and going full Bill Walton.

Today, We’re Thankful For Neil Patrick Harris’s Adorable Family Outing

It’s no secret that Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka have one of the most precious families in Hollywood, but just in case you needed a little reminder, their latest outing should do the trick. On Monday night, Neil and David were joined by their 7-year-old twins, Gideon and Harper, at the Saks Fifth Avenue holiday event in NYC. Little Harper looked adorable in a furry leopard coat, while Gideon kept things cool in a black leather jacket. Between this and their «Carnival of Curiosities» Halloween costumes earlier this year, this brood just keeps getting cuter with every day that passes by.

‘Stunned’: Jon Stewart talks Louis C.K. on ‘TODAY’

This morning Jon Stewart sat down for a lovely little chitchat with Matt Lauer and Savannah Guthrie over on TODAY. And since he’s a person of the comedian persuasion, he was asked for his thoughts on the Louis C.K. scandal. Luckily, Stewart approached the topic of his friend’s serial grossness toward women in comedy with the sensitivity and honesty we’ve come to expect from him.

(First though: REALLY Matt Lauer? «What was the impact on you when you heard» is how you wanna frame that question? Who gives a flying fuck what the «impact» was on a powerful dude in comedy who definitely never had to watch his colleague masturbate! Maybe stick to «What was your reaction» next time, eh?)

Jon was «stunned» and begins to frame the issue in terms of addiction and compulsion, asking himself if he missed something or could have done more and says that yes, they all could have done something. But he also says, «Look, comedy on its best day is not a great environment for women» and proceeds to acknowledge the challenges women in the field have faced for decades — and that Louis C.K. wasn’t the only one making it worse for women.

And then he sort of references 30 Rock, and thinks better of it, and moves on. Which just makes me want to hear all the SNL dirt he probably has! Anyway, here are two clips of his reaction, thoughtfully posted to TODAY‘s twitter account:

He says when he heard the rumors about Louis C.K. he did ask around, and was assured they weren’t true — though he acknowledges that taking someone’s word on an issue like that can be an error. Which in some ways is one of the bigger takeaways I hope these revelations leave us with. Look at who you choose to listen to and believe. And then go get the other perspective anyway.

Jameis Winston Wants to Eat a W Today

I’m going to go ahead and call it… Jameis Winston’s pregame speech to his teammates is the best thing you’re going to see today. Big hits and crazy touchdowns are fun, but this speech is the ultimate triple threat: bizarre, hilarious, and uplifting.

Don’t believe me? Just watch Jameis form a “W” with his fingers and proceed to suck on them in a baffling display:

Inspiring stuff, but unfortunately, the Bucs don’t look like a team that wants to eat a W today as they’re down 3-9 late in the second quarter.

A Four Year Old Was Shot Four Times Today Because Paul Ryan is a Gutless Coward

Publisher’s Note: When terrorists hijacked planes and steered them into the World Trade Center, America responded by beefing up security at airports. When some asshole tried to blow up a plane with a shoe bomb, airports required us to remove our shoes in the airport security line. Annoying? Yes. But it was a straight-line response between potential weapon and act.

But when it’s white domestic terrorists, apparently common sense eludes us.

AR-15s were used in Aurora, Sandy Hook, Orlando, and San Bernadino, among many other mass shootings, including todays. The straight-line response is to PROHIBIT THE SALE OF AR-15s. Most mass shooters have a history of domestic violence. The straight-line response to that is to PROHIBIT THE SALE OF AR-15s TO DOMESTIC ABUSERS. It’s a simple legal response that might have saved dozens and dozens of lives, and if the Republicans had any guts at all, they would have made these changes to the law after Sandy Hook.

But they didn’t. And today, 27 more are dead. There’s also a four year old who was shot four times. He has survived (so far). His sister did not. That’s on Paul Ryan and the rest of the GOP for not making simple, common sense responses to mass shootings that followed a clear pattern.

Don’t the Republicans see what’s happening now? It’s not just mass indiscriminate killings. That guy today? He didn’t even have a connection to the church. It’s about breaking records. These motherfuckers want to kill as many people as possible in places where people feel the most safe. They want to murder and incite fear. They want their names in goddamn record books. That’s terrorism, and it could be prevented if only men like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell cared more about the slaughter of innocent people than their own goddamn re-election prospects. Shove your thoughts and prayers up your asses.

Anyway, here’s Lainey’s Pajiba Love:

Kelly Clarkson didn’t really get that OOOOMPH until she met her husband. She says she was maybe asexual before meeting him. Maybe. I don’t know. I’m just glad for her! — (DListed)

Weird Al, John Stamos, and Finn Wolfhard do Willy Wonka. Sounds like the beginning of a joke, but it’s not! It’s actually what happened at the Hollywood Bowl over the weekend. — (AV Club)

Taylor Swift has released another single. It’s… fine? I don’t know. I just want to go back to the days of «1989» when I knew absolutely NOTHING about Taylor Swift’s love life or her fights with other popstars and I just liked to listen to her music while I was driving. — (Celebitchy)

The latest The Walking Dead theory is backed by compelling evidence and super dark. (Uproxx)

WistfulCynic has always been a dog person, but she married a cat person, and then they decided to get kittens. There’s a rumor that WistfulCynic posted a lot of kitten pictures, and that might be why she got two copies of Jason Hazeley and Joel Morris’ How it Works: The Cat for Christmas. If you like cats and British humor, this may be a good book for you. Are you a cat person, a dog person, or a cephalopod person? Please post pics below. (Cannonball Read 9)

The Miss Peru beauty contestants were just DONE with the typical beauty pageant bullshit of stating their measurements and being eye candy. This year, they presented some statistics about femicide, rape, and other gender-based violences. They are bad ass.

Jeff Goldblum Rating Tattoos of His Own Face Is Just the Laugh You Needed Today

We’ll take time out of our day to watch Jeff Goldblum do pretty much anything. Whether it’s a totally off-the-rails TV interview or a food truck venture, the finer-with-age actor has a way of turning every task into something hilarious (and handsome). So when he sat down with GQ to rank actual fan tattoos inspired by, well, himself, it’s not exactly a surprise that it turned into a seven-minute chain of grade-A Goldblumisms such as:

  • «Of course, it’s a whimsical interpretation of the relationship that I would have with a velociraptor . . . «
  • «I give it 10 Goldblums out of a possible 10 Goldblums.»
  • «This looks like a lady or man with a very shapely, lovely leg, and the color of skin like a freshly peeled apple.»
  • «What kind of limb is that? It’s a fleshy, fleshy appendage.»
  • «The tattoo itself is a weird affair. There’s much foliage.»

And, most importantly, there’s this gem: «I wish I were looking at that and eating a nice plate of huevos rancheros, chips and salsa, and a nice margarita.» Don’t we all, Jeff . . . don’t we all? Do yourself a favor and give the entire tattoo-ranking session a watch above; it’ll only serve to solidify your crush!
