Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott Expecting

-Oh geez. 20-year-old Kylie Jenner is reportedly pregnant with Travis Scott’s baby. Doesn’t the new season of their show premiere this weekend? Damn, Kris came to play…

-Ian Somerhalder said on a podcast he wanted a baby so badly that he threw out Nikki Reed‘s birth control pills and the internet is not happy. (I assumed that it was just a story taken out of context and it wouldn’t sound like he actually took away her consent once I heard the audio — but NOPE!).

-Nikki has taken to Twitter to defend Ian, and wrote a long response to a Cosmo article about it.

-Prince Harry is here! Since Meghan Markle lives in Toronto, she’s expected to accompany him to a bunch of official Invictus events, so expect a slew of new photos of them together next week.

-Meanwhile, Meghan‘s  ex-husband just sold a TV show about a woman who moves on from a relationship by dating a British prince, which sounds petty AF.

-Vogue did their 73 Questions series with Tracee Ellis-Ross and she was predictably a delight. Her house is a beaut.

-Hills star Audrina Patridge filed for divorce and also requested a restraining order from him.

-This interview with Marilyn Manson is totally bonkers. He greets the Guardian reporter by jumping out from behind a door with a fake gun, and responds to questions by “flicking” the reporter’s testicles. What. The. Hell.

-For the third night in a row, Jimmy Kimmel dedicated a portion of his show to his highly publicized battle against the Graham-Cassidy health-care bill — to much praise.

-David Foster is dating Katherine McPhee — and I’m not sure if Foster’s daughter is completely on board.

-The furor over Riverdale star KJ Apa’s car accident continues and Cole Sprouse has asked that the  series provide transportation to castmembers working late hours. On one hand I’m not sure about it because they’re adults who shoot in Langley and choose to live downtown, and they reportedly can call a taxi or stay in a hotel near the set on the studio’s dime if they feel it is unsafe to drive. On the other hand, I get that these guys put in crazy long hours and probably don’t want to always crash at hotels. On Smallville, Tom Wellington‘s co-stars once had to sign a petition to get him a driver on the series so that he wouldn’t end up killing himself while going home in a sleep-deprived state.

-Is anyone having more fun in life than Nicole Richie? I’m doubtful.

-The first trailer for Wes Anderson’s next stop-motion film Isle of Dogs is here.

Riverdale’s KJ Apa Gets In Accident After 16-Hour Day on Set

-Warner Bros. Television is doing damage control after Riverdale star KJ Apa got into a car accident in Vancouver while driving himself home following a 16-hour workday.

-Looks like the rumours of a split from Hayden Christensen may be true. Rachel Bilson was spotted in LA without her wedding ring. That sucks; I like them both.

-The Foo Fighters edition of Carpool Karaoke is a headbanging good time.

-Jordan Peele is developing a new TV show based on true events that follows a group who hunted down hundreds of Nazis who managed to escape punishment and settle into American society. See HBO, this is how you tackle historical entertainment.

-Gal Gadot, Kumail Nanjiani and Ryan Gosling are all slated to host SNL this season.

-The families of two men who died on the set of American Made are claiming that Tom Cruise is partially to blame.

-I don’t watch Rick and Morty (I know, I know) but it’s awesome that the creator is slamming trolls attacking their female writers.

-”I’m a target in a way most entrepreneurs are not,” says Gwyneth Paltrow in a new interview about GOOP.  Well to be fair, most entrepreneurs aren’t telling us to steam our vaginas…

-Also, here’s photos of her GOOP lab in LA, which the author describes as “equal parts ridic and chic as f*ck”.

-Dylan McDermott and Dermot Mulroney are going to star in a TV show together and my head just exploded.

-One of the least wave-making late night hosts has gone political. Jimmy Kimmel is taking on health care in his monologues, and he won’t back down until the repeal & replace act is dead, saying “I did more homework this week than all my years of college combined.”

-Oh, Channing Tatumyou scamp, you!

-Carey Mulligan wrote an essay about her grandmother’s life with Alzheimer’s and did it suddenly get really dusty in here?

-Is the “six seasons and a movie” mantra about Community actually coming true?

-Arcade Fire’s Win Butler is defending the rollout of the band’s latest album.

-Dwayne Johnson gets in the game in latest Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle trailer.

-After seeing Brad’s Status at TIFF, I’ve vowed not to watch anymore introspective Ben Stiller movies, so I’m gonna go ahead and pass on this.  Emma Thompson as a drunk hippie is tempting, though.

-No one trusts anyone in the new Murder on the Orient Express trailer starring Daisy Ridley, Michelle Pfeiffer, Josh Gad, Penelope Cruz, Johnny Depp, and Judi Dench.

This Is Us’ Sterling K Brown On Emmy Win

sterlingkbrown-variety

-In Variety’s Emmy’s morning-after interview, This Is Us star Sterling K Brown opens up about his historic win. He also revealed that his naked butt was cut out of his new movie with Kate Hudson. Boo-urns, Hollywood!

-For THR’s fashion issue, celebrities talk about the first time they met their fave designer. I don’t know why Jen Meyers is practically sitting in Jennifer Aniston’s lap, though.

-Halle Berry, 51, stepped out with new boyfriend Alex Da Kid, 35, hours after going Instagram official.

-The woman in Kevin Hart‘s sex tape is denying any involvement in the alleged extortion plot.

-The Ryan Philippe plot thickens.

-The best part of the Gossip Girl 10-year anniversary is all of the think pieces. I will read them all! Every. Single. One.

-Following those photos of Gina Torres kissing another man, she and Laurence Fishburne have announced their split after 14 years of marriage. Gina is a BAMF and I just want her to be happy.

-Speaking of splits, there are rumours that Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen may have broken up after 9 years of marriage.

-The Good Place returns tonight, and it’s one of the few shows I’m actually looking forward to this TV season. Kristen Bell‘s video of her castmates finding out about last year’s shocking twist is perfect.

-It’s DVD season, which means it’s gag reel season! Here are the ones from Arrow,  Timeless,  Criminal MindsSupernatural and The Flash.

-Daniel Dae Kim and Ed Skrein are fighting Hollywood whitewashing one Instagram pic at a time.

-This is an interesting look at why award season bait like Hostiles and Disobedience are still without deals after TIFF.  The festival’s late/delayed screening times and issues with attendance reports didn’t help.

-Add Sean Penn to the list of film stars turning to the small screen. (As @ira says, keep it.)

-The Honest Trailer for Wonder Woman is kind of perfect, guy.

-After bringing you Sexy Archie, the CW is developing a dark horror take on Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Yeah, I’m in.

-A lucky fan got to get her makeup done by Rihanna at Fenty’s London launch.

-I’m kind of done with Netflix’s Marvel shows (with the exception of Jessica Jones and The Runaways), but the first trailer for The Punisher is mighty intriguing.

-Here’s the first trailer for Alicia Vikander as Tomb Raider. I envy her triceps.
