I Ain't One To Gossip But ...

Apparently it’s not just Samantha who took a hard pass on the reboot rehash mishmash of Sex and the City after all.

After HBO Max announced its limited 10-episode SATC revival entitled And Just Like That…, word came that Kim Cattrall, who’d already passed on what would have been the 51st sequel—I know that’s wrong, it’s just the first two sequels were sooooo long it felt like fifty-one—was not having it.

And that started a feud of sorts between Kim and desperately seeking attention Sarah Jessica Parker that was just about over until the reboot rehash mishmash came along.

Only, Kim wasn’t asked to come back, and I’m sure she doesn’t care about that, but now we learn that Mr. Big, Carrie’s husband, played by Chris Noth, has also declined the invitation to return.

I wonder if they’ll play it like Mr. Big finally dumped the shallow, shoe-obsessed, always on the lookout for the next thing, Carrie, for the fabulous Samantha?

Now that would be a show!

Kylie Jenner notoriously dropped her best friend, Jordyn Woods, after Jordyn hooked up with Kylie’s sister Khloé’s piece, Tristan Thompson, who had hooked up with Khloe while his then-other girlfriend was pregnant with their child. Tristan then cheated on Khloé while she was pregnant with his baby because dogs will be dogs.

And while Jordyn and Kylie never made up, Khloé took Tristan back so they could have another child so their two kids would be actually related to one another. And that lead to an online commenter asked:

“So… Is Kylie allowed to be friends with [Jordyn] again?” 

And Khloé snapped, and wants y’all to know that both her newest face, and all her old faces, does not like that; at all:

“I’m so sick and tired of this narrative that I control my sister or I dictate who she chooses to surround herself with. Never once have I ever and I mean EVER told my sister who she can be friends with. She is an adult, who can do whatever she wants to do. I will support her in anything and everything she wants to do! I love my sister unconditionally! That means regardless of who she chooses to be friends with, I will always love, respect and value my sister unconditionally!! She is my life partner and I will always respect what she chooses!!! By the way,  I have no ill feelings towards ANYONE!!! Truly. My heart carries no hatred at all. Unless you actually know what you’re talking about, respectfully SHUT THE FUCK UP!”

Sounds like someone doth protest too much.

Besides, we all know that no one tells Kylie what to do because she brings the most coins into the family. When Khloé starts dropping some coins maybe her opinion will matter.

I never watched Buffy so I know none of these people but that’s never stopped me before, so here goes … it seems Buffy actress Charisma Carpenter has accused Buffy creator Joss Whedon of behaving inappropriately toward her on set. And once she spoke out, many of her Buffy and Angel co-stars told their own tales of Whedon’s bullying behavior.

Well, not all; Alyson Hannigan and Nicholas Brendon have said nary a word about the situation. And while there is no reason for Hannigan’s silence, the reason Brendon isn’t talking is because … wait for it … as excuses go it’s epic …  he slipped and fell, paralyzing his penis and anus.

Seriously. Brendon said he slipped the week before and felt a pressure in his coccyx bone. That pressure slowly traveled down his right side, and soon his anus and penis were paralyzed. In Nicholas’ own words:

“It’s weird not being able to feel your fucking anus when you’re shitting.” 

Yeah, might be best if he didn’t speak out?

I blame Anna Wintour.

André Leon Talley, former Wintour BFF, is in danger of eviction from his White Plains, New York manse because maybe he doesn’t own it, and maybe he does?

While André claims ownership of the home, his friends—well, ex-friends—George Malkemus, former CEO of Manolo Blahnik, and his husband, Anthony Yurgaitis, claim it’s their house and that André was merely a renter who is behind in the rent to the tune of $500,000.

In November, George and Anthony filed documents seeking to evict André from their home claiming “$515,872,97 representing alleged arrears” while André filed his own lawsuit against George and Anthony claiming that, in 2004, the home he was living in developed mold and he needed to find a new place to live. He says that George, a friend for almost 40 years, helped him out because—and this makes literally no sense—his “work schedule was particularly demanding, and he could not obtain traditional financing” so he and George entered into a “gentleman’s agreement.” 

According to André, George and Anthony agreed to buy the White Plains mansion, with help from a $120K down payment provided by André, who would then make payments to George and Anthony until the balance of the purchase price was paid off and then the deed would be transferred to him. André claims he paid George and Anthony back and then some; the purchase price was $1.02M and André says he’s paid the couple $1.075M and then spent another $200,000 on home repairs.

Wait, so he overpaid? At any rate, André says he’s overpaid in full, and the couple did not sign over the house to him, and in March 2020, George and Anthony told André to pay it off or get out.

André believes that the couple was having money problems related to Manolo Blahnik’s bankruptcy and so they are trying to steal the house out from under him. That begs the question, though, how do these high-powered, somewhat affluent people, make a “gentleman’s agreement” and not put one word in writing? Makes no sense … unless ….

Like I said, I’d be looking at Wintour. This story has her claws all over it.

Oops, probably should have said that last part. If I suddenly stop blogging and you never hear from me again, someone tell the police it was Anna!

Remember when the Gynecological world took Gwyneth Paltrow to task over her assertion that every vagina needed to be stuffed with a jade egg?

Good times. But now it’s England’s National Health Service [NHS] coming for GOOP demanding that she stop trying to prescribe any treatments for COVID-19 on her, ahem, “lifestyle” blog.

NHS medical director, Professor Stephen Powis, is asking Paltrow  to stop pushing misinformation lies, specifically the diet and health regimen she touted as a cure for COVID-19’s long-lasting effects. Gwyneth posted to GOOP that she had the virus early on and it left her with “long-tail fatigue and brain fog” and she offered up a lot of costly GOOP products—a “keto and plant-based” diet, fasting until 11AM every day, “coconut aminos,” sugar-free kombucha, kimchi, supplements, an “herbal nonalcoholic cocktail” called Seedlip and wrapping yourself up in a “sauna blanket”—that you can all buy to deal with its symptoms though you will never get over the pain of lining Gwyneth Paltrow’s pockets with coins over some 2021 snake-oil shiz.

Professor Powis—not be confused with Has been Actress Paltrow—says:

“I see Gwyneth Paltrow is unfortunately suffering from the effects of Covid. We wish her well, but some of the solutions she’s recommending are really not the solutions we’d recommend in the NHS. We need to take long Covid seriously and apply serious science. All influencers who use social media have a duty of responsibility and a duty of care around that. Like the virus, misinformation carries across borders and it mutates, and it evolves. So, I think YouTube and other social media platforms have a real responsibility and opportunity here.”

Oops! He called GOOP a “social media platform” when Gwyneth calls it The Answer To Every Single Problem That Anyone Anywhere Any Time Ever Can Access To Cure Themselves, Feel Better, Look Better And Empty Their Bank Accounts For.

Personally, I’ll listen to the professor working for a nationwide medical organization whose entire job is to facilitate the medical well-being of every citizen in a country over that of a woman who suggests you stuff a rock into your cooch.

I like Noth, I'm glad he said 'no.'

And the Joss Whedon thing? I'm always suspicious when actors whose careers have gone nowhere start digging up the shallow accusations from their past. This seems more desperation then anything else.

Maybe they'll send Paltrow to jail.

WHY do those kraptrashian/jenner broads HAVE to show their plastic-stuffed tits constantly? ain't NOTHING to see there.

and the rest of the garbage can FOAD!

A synonym for Goop is Swill. I think we should just change the name of Blemish Paltry's site.

I watched 'Shakespeare in Love' yesterday, not seen since it was first released 22 years ago. Seeing again the female lead in pre-Goop era before fame went to her head - and everywhere else - was revelatory. Of course she only got the part because, so the story goes, Julia Roberts who had accepted the role [or her agents?] was/were a bit miffed that she'd be paired with the then relatively unknown [still, perhaps?] Joseph Fiennes as the Bard himself, not quite befitting to Roberts' star-celebrity status. But G.P. stepped into the void and, I must say, made a pretty good job of it. Actually, all over it's an even better film than I thought it had been, though why Judi Dench as Liz the First should have deserved that Oscar for just 8 mins of screen time, and unremarkable at that, is still mystifying. Maybe they thought that she was on the way out so better give her something before it was too late. As we we were to see, Judi was just on the way in again, only BIG-time.
But Paltrow in that film WAS good - even if now we can't see her without all the absurd baggage she's accreted onto herself over the last couple of decades.

"I have no ill feelings towards ANYONE!!! ....Unless you actually know what you’re talking about, respectfully SHUT THE FUCK UP!” Yes, that sounds like "no ill feelings" at all.

And actually, if Mr. Big dumped that mole faced twat for Samantha, I'd actually see THAT movie at the theater.

Thought you'd like the NHS piece

Ooooh... Dirt Day. I try never to miss this.

Gwynyth. Gwenith. Gernerth... I just love her. Seriously. I think she's evil, but so much fun. Disney should base their next Villainess on her. I have adopted her no food until 11 mantra. Everything else? Well - what does common sense and your pocketbook tell you?

The Three Gays of Anna Wintour... Wintour Fairies? Anyhoo... nonsense. All. More proof that rich people are just as stupid as anyone living in Texas and supporting Ted Cruz.

Buffy. Haven't seen it. Interesting paralysis. Maybe it extends from the same one that halted his acting career?

Kylie/Khloe - Blow Me. Don't care. Amazed they could put together that many words. Also... funny how everything they say sounds like a press release. Narrative? Really. Yeah. You're not that sophisticated, lady.

Kim / Chris / SJP - This feud goes way back in the time machine - back when their faces resembled something human. I love them all. Loved the first movie, too. The second. OMG. Dumpster Fire. So... looking forward to whatever with whoever. A little SITC magic is better than none. Also... do you remember that Goldie Hawn was supposed to do SITC for the Sr. Citizen set? But there were too many ageist jokes... and she backed out. Don't blame her. Still. That needs to be made - minus ageist jokes.

Thanks, hon. Adore this dish set you serve up every Saturday. Kizzes.

@Dave
re Josh: and yet no one is sticking up for him, and even Buffy has sided with Charisma Carpenter. I always side with the victims. This is not a career move by any standard.

@AM
Simple answer: fame-whores be fame-whorin'.

@Mitchell
I like Swill! It suits her.

@Raybeard
I'd never heard that story about Roberts; interesting. And sadly, while Paltrow used to be an actress, she's traded that in for snake oil.

@Blobby
Poor Khloe. =)
I'd watch Big and Samantha!

@TDM
Way beyond!

@Helen
I like anyone who takes Paltrow and her "healing" down a notch!

@uptonking
You may have Gwyneth. I loathe everything about her.
How do you let someone live in your house, ALLEGEDLY, and have nothing written down?? How do you buy a house, ALLEGEDLY, and have no paperwork?
The anus may BE his career?
I just love how the Kardastrophes think they're relevant and that anyone with two brain cells to rub together cares a white about them.
I'm as over SJP and another reboot of SATC as I am GOOP.
XOXO

Ha ha, you had me at "And Khloé snapped, and wants y’all to know that both her newest face, and all her old faces, does not like that; at all:"!

Bob said...

@Treaders
Well, to be fair, the girl has had several new faces this year alone!

The Cool Cookie said...

I am so done with SJP. Sick of her. Can she not undertake another role? Or is it too difficult for her? She afraid that it won't reflect well on her and her self-styled role and an aging diva? I mean, she does have an AARP card. Mathew seems to be doing all the heavy lifting in that marriage.
