1. I’m not ok.

It’s been a minute ❤️

A post shared by Kaitlyn Bristowe (@kaitlynbristowe) on

I was searching for a 5th piece of celeb news for this week’s roundup when the official statement about Kaitlyn and Shawn was released and I’m not doing well. I reshuffled to put this at the top because it is the most important to me as I have inserted myself into Kaitlyn and Shawn’s relationship as much as any of her other stans. I listen to her podcast and try to copy her outfits on a daily basis and that’s why I feel personally victimized by this news. As much as I shit all over the Bachelor, the first two seasons I watched featured Kaitlyn and she was a funny girl with a potty mouth who happened to find love on TV and OBVIOUSLY I relate to that. The funniness. And the trash mouth. Not the finding love on TV part. I’ve followed them since they got engaged and they both seemed like genuinely good people and they had a relationship that I thought would last–which I can’t say for ANY other bachelor couple. DID I JINX THIS?! Don’t answer that. Things were rough over the summer when people were speculating their breakup because they hadn’t been seen together in a while but like KAITLYN ALWAYS VISITS HER FAMILY IN CANADA. CALM DOWN GUYS. She talked about it on her podcast that they’re both busy and they’re committed to each other. She said just because there’s a rough patch doesn’t mean you give up it means you love the shit out of each other and I was like YEAH GIRL YEAH. And now I feel sad about it. Here’s their official statement released to People before I start crying at my desk thinking about if she’ll get joint custody of Doodle:

“After three incredible years, we have decided to go our separate ways. This difficult decision comes after thoughtful, respectful consideration. Even though we are parting as a couple, we’re very much committed to remaining friends and we will continue to support each other. Due to the nature of how we met, our relationship has always been very public, and we have enjoyed sharing it with all of you, but we ask that you respect our decision and our privacy at this time.”

 

2. JT brings books back.

jt

Going on vocal rest didn’t stop JT from promoting his new coffee table book out this week called Hindsight. In it, there’s some little gems that have come out about him and Gosling tearing it up during the Mickey Mouse Club (legends) and how he met Jess at a party, she laughed at his joke and the rest is history (they banged other people for a while before getting together exclusively.) Also not for nothing but if JT tells a joke…you laugh. That’s just obvious. I WOULD’VE LAUGHED HARDER. Just saying. ALSO he claims that the way they met was a meet-cute right out of a rom com. MEETING AT A PARTY IS NOT A MEET CUTE JUSTIN. GAWD. Ok moving on. Anyway, here he is tearing it up with BFF JFall except it had to be non-verbal so they couldn’t do one of their regular shenanigans and instead they played a rigged version of the best friend game with wife vs bff. Honestly, I’m on team Jess after this abomination of cheating. PS do we think these three have sex? Cause like it got a little too real with pineapple.

BONUS: more JT JFALL time.

 

3. Feeny. FEEHEEEHEEEEEENY.

I’m gonna be real honest, when I saw Feeny in a headline I was like oh, dear God the time has come. I mean he is 91 after all. As much as my Cory Matthews brain would like to believe it, Feeny won’t be around forever. HOWEVER, good news he’s still alive and he literally scared an intruder away by waking up and turning on his light. BOOM. NOT TODAY. Plays with Squirrels agrees with me.

4. Social Media Breakup.

Obviously I’m salivating at all of the post Ariana-Pete breakup news because there’s nothing more entertaining than seeing youths in the social media era deal with a breakup and this one is about as public as it gets because they wouldn’t stop jamming their love down our throat as they jammed their tongues down each other’s. Anyway, Pete is using their breakup for ratings on this season of SNL and to better his standup routine and Ariana is NOT DOWN WITH THAT. Tell EM GIRL! PETE, WHAT IS YOUR REBUTTAL?

5. Wedding Fever.

gwyn

I got some heart eyes for a couple of wedding dresses this week! Gwyn got married in like September but just released the photos and I laaaaahhhhve that gown. Big Daddy Sitch and his lovely lady also got married this week, moving their nuptials planned for Italy to right now in New Jersey due to his impending jail sentence and inability to leave the state (YOIKES.) Even though watching The Situation on the Jersey Shore might indicate a white trash bash for a wedding, the picture they released looked quite fancy so I guess they used that tax money for somethin! ZING. Ok I’m done with the roasts.

sitch

They both look lovely. It looks like Sitch laid off the self tanner for once and MOST IMPORTANTLY they have no joke the best wedding hashtag in the game. #TheHitchuation?! I MEAN COME ON. THAT’S GENIUS. The only thing fishy about the wedding is that out of the whole J.Shore fam the only two as far as I know who attended were Deena and the Staten Island Dump Angelina. HUH?! Was everyone else really that busy that they couldn’t attend this wedding?! He got the mid series add-on and the dirty little hamster but no VP of MVP, Snooks or JWoww?! Even the camera crews weren’t there to capture it for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation part 15 just kidding we can’t call it vacation anymore because it’s just us living in a house without our kids for TV?! Hmmm…Anyway, congrats you crazy kids!

Celeb-oween 2018

This year marks the first time I realized I’m too old for Halloween and wanted nothing to do with all of the people touching me at the bar so it is a somber post indeed. For the years to come I will judge the celebrity costumes as I sit in my own costume, on the couch. RIP Halloweekend, Gone 2 Late. But if you’d like to see what it looks like to scrap together pieces for a costume, log some serious group craft time and have a boyfriend who looks like Tim Riggins, check out this year’s costume that went underappreciated by the bar skanks grinding to remixes of Don’t Stop Believin.

IMG_7982

I did get called out (mild spoiler alert) for cheating on Street and I’d like to clarify that we depict Season 3 Garrity and Riggins because we are moral people. Texas Forever. No Regrets. Let’s see how the celebrities with unlimited funds and a glam squad fared this year.

ariel-winter

This is probably the least slutty costume Ariel Winter has ever worn. Kudos to her. Especially because dressing up as Pam means you don’t have HIV.

Casamigos Halloween Party

All Brandon did was put a white robe on and he nailed it.

christian-siriano

No idea what this is but it’s pretty baller.

crawford

This made me so happy to see a family costume with teenagers. I wouldn’t have been caught dead dressing up with my parents for Halloween in high school. Props to this model fam. No but literally, they are all models.

diddy

By the looks of that sExUaL lip bite, Diddy is downright FEELIN HIMSELF as a pilot.

erika-jayne

If I ever wanted to spend money on a latex bodysuit, I would absolutely do this costume. No shame in the showing off your figure game. TASTEFULLY of course.

gabrielle union

Gabrielle Union does a classic celeb costume every year and she’s obviously good at it.

george-clooney

Cindy’s rocker costume was way better but Clooney as a pilot. Woo buddy. Step aside, Diddy.

harrystyles

No clue what this is but it made me laugh out loud. Oh, Harry.

jerry-seinfeld

Can never go wrong with a fairytale costume.

jessica-alba

This looks like my crafting level right here. Jagged dress cut probably from a bedsheet.

joejonas

Joe dressed as his fiance’s character on Game of Thrones. Interesting. Keeping the facial hair really spiced that up.

kjenner

WE GET IT KENDALL. YOU’RE HOT. DRESS AS A ZOMBIE NEXT YEAR AND I’D HAVE MORE RESPECT FOR YOU.

lauren-conrad

I stan hard on LC and her annual halloween costumes but this blows. You can’t drown yourself in tulle and call yourself a moth. Get outta here.

lily-depp-rose

YEP.

lisa-rinna

This is funny because I used to watch Housewives and Rinna is a psycho and everyone is jealous of Erika Jayne, badass popstar bitch. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Rinna.

The 8th Annual Trick or treats! Halloween party at the private residence of Jonas Tahlin, CEO of Absolut Elyx

Nothing like a pantsless Doc Brown

nina-dobred

A STAR IS BORN. Clever.

oliviamunn

Apparently this is a character from Crazy Rich Asians. Yehhh ok.

paris

GTFO of my planet, Paris.

paris-nicky

Nicky can take a hike with her sister, who she apparently deemed important enough to mimic as a costume. COOL, A SPARKLY DRESS. THIS IS NOT ICONIC ENOUGH. Had these pictures not been side by side, it would’ve just looked like Nicky was going out on the town.

3rd Annual Dee Dee Jackson Foundation Costume For A Cause - Arrivals

You have Michael Jackson money, sir. Please use it.

KISS Haunted house Party 2018 - Arrivals

Rita Ora has the best costume this year and there’s no contest.

Just Jared's 7th Annual Halloween Party

I wouldn’t be surprised if these girls dressed like this on a regular basis if we’re being honest here.

Just Jared's 7th Annual Halloween Party

Wells can GET IT as Belle. THAT WAIST.

2018 GOOD+ Foundation's 3rd Annual Halloween Bash Presented by Delta Air Lines and Otter Pops

Meh.

seacrest

I’m almost positive Ryan Seacrest has been this exact costume before.

wiz-khalifa

Ninja Turtle Wiz and his fake pizza are LOVING life.

joeyking

Joey King had to shave her head for a role and BOY DID SHE utilize that bald head to amp up her costume.

michelle-trachtenberg

I guess this is Michelle Trachtenberg. If I can’t even tell who you are, you’re doing Halloween right.

noahcentineo

Netflix’s latest heartthrob going as Disney’s biggest rapey doucher? This will just not do.

victoria-justice-

Uniqueness: 10/10, Execution: 10/10, Knowing the Alphabet Skills: 5/10

bey

yonce

Beyonce went so hard in the paint for her h-ween costume she even got her graphic designer involved. Toni Braxton obviously bowed down to her.

cheban

I came down HARD on Jonathan Cheban last year and I don’t regret it because I was genuinely concerned for his face. He probably caught wind of this and covered up this year. Looks GR8.

https://www.instagram.com/p/Bpdbip9g73S/?hl=en&taken-by=g_eazy G-Eazy/Instagram

You’re about to see the difference between a guy post-breakup and a girl. G-Eazy slapped on some intricate makeup and probably still got laid.

halsey

Halsey went out ass naked and called it a costume. She too, probably got laid. Brava to both.

Just Jared's 7th Annual Halloween Party

What the hell does a bedazzled mask have to do with what looks like a rape and murder victim? I am truly disturbed.

john-legend-and-chrissy-teigen

This makes my heart happy.

jwoww

Lotta questions here. 1. Did Roger agree to a family costume in exchange for staying together? 2. Where is their other kid….

kylie-jenner-stormi

Leave it to Kylie Jenner to dress up with her INFANT and still look like a hoebag. Like really? As a mom you thought it was necessary to wear a leotard and tie up stillettos while matching your baby?

shaun white

This year’s immediate post-halloween apology came from Shaun White. Gotta say, didn’t expect to see an OLYMPIAN dress up as a mentally retarded character but there’s one every year and it’s just downright comical to see that there are still people in the spotlight who choose insensitive costumes and are genuinely surprised when they’re forced to apologize. Dude. Dress as yourself. You won gold medals at like retirement age in the Olympics this past year. No need for a costume.

Katy Perry dresses up as a sloth for Halloween at Kelly and Ryan show in New York

Kewl costume, Katy remember when you were a cheeto? People don’t forget. Also, I lied. This costume is dumb.

rebelwilson

Rebel Wilson going as Wilson is prettttyyy pretty good. Plus it’s one of those costumes that you can eat a bowl full of candy before and no one will know.

ellen

Ellen on the other hand, is really getting her bang for her buck with that plastic cleavage she keeps rocking each Halloween. She’s going for Mariah Carey but I think there’s a deeper want here in the form of a boob job. (Update- apparently she was just dressing up as the Bachelorette. Whatever. Point still stands.)

Today-Halloween-2018

The Today show went 80’s but PLOT TWIST so did Good Morning America (couldn’t find a group pic SARRY.) I want to know who immediately got fired for that. I love Willie as Ferris Bueller the most.

roker

Also this made me laugh out loud because this is one hundo percent the face you make when you poop your pants at the white house.

Christina Milian is decked out in Hello Kitty gear for the Galore Magazine party

I’m not really sure what blue hair and eyes have to do with Hello Kitty. At this point I just have to assume your costume is a freak.

giulian

Jack and Allie from A Star is Born. YESSSS. I’M OFF THE DEEP ENDDDDDDDDDDD.

Heidi Klum's 19th Annual Halloween Party

EVERYONE SLOBBER ALL OVER HEIDI KLUM BECAUSE SHE INVENTED HALLOWEEN. (Dope costume tho.)

khloe-kardashian

THIS IS HOW YOU DRESS UP WITH YOUR CHILD. TAKE NOTES, KYLIE.

mariah

Mariah’s real cleavage in a roleplay costume.

nph

THIS IS AWESOME. NPH and co strike again!

Dressing like a showgirl but calling yourself the Queen of Hearts. Yah ok.

LET’S SEE THE BABY’S FACE! COME ON!!! WHO’S THE DAD?! Either way, cute costume obv.

A post shared by Kim Kardashian West (@kimkardashian) on

The fact that these bholes treat Halloween like a 9 look fashion show and got THE ACTUAL ANGEL WINGS AND LINGERIE just so that they could have their bits on display for the millionth time ever. COME ON. THIS MAKES ME SO ANGRY. I DON’T NEED TO SEE YOUR VAGINA, KIM.

Ok I’m calm again. Reese brought me back down with a normal Halloween costume a mother would wear.

Neither of these kids were Boo, the cutest cartoon character ever to be created and I feel like that’s a missed opportunity. Mini monsters is also adorbs though.

Scary indeed.

Not gonna lie I want that leotard.

So I guess I’m just not up with the youths these days but Halloween is literally just dressing up in a costume and doing a photoshoot. Didn’t even need to subject myself to strangers at the bar this past weekend. Could’ve just insta’ed my costume.

 

HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENie

Weekly JUice

Week of 10/15/18

1. Another reason to talk about Meghan and Harry.

markle

As if you ever need a reason…but obviously first comes love, then comes giant televised royal wedding, then comes BAYBAY!!! Pretty high hopes for this nugget to be a stunnah but that’s also because Kate and Wills kids are so adorbs. Kinda sets the bar high. Either way, the announcement was made and now the royal coups is in Australia and we won’t stop breathing down their necks with stupid articles about how Meghan is feeling, how much Harry loves her and wants a baby, what they wore and ate for breakfast every day, etc. Royal fever will literally never die. I MEAN DID YOU SEE THAT DOUBLE HANDHOLD? GOALSonGoalsonGOALS according to every news site in our country that reported it like it was bigger news than their pregnancy. It’s embarrassing how much we drool over these two. Wipe it up, America. (Coming from a girl who has a saliva problem herself, I’m not judging, I’m being a friend.)

2. That’s a lot of tattoos to erase.

arianapete

In shocking news to literally no one, Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson have broken up after getting engaged five minutes into their relashe (126 days together but who’s counting). I’m not going to pussyfoot around this…if you both rebound REAL hard and then one of the exes dies from an overdose, that will probably throw a wrench into the mix of your already v. fragile partnership. Since I reported when they got engaged along with a slew of other “let’s just get married real quick because we are celebrities and why not” jabronis, it felt necessary to report when the first one ended. Keeping an eye on you, Biebz and Nick Jonas…

piggysmallz

Anyway, they made a statement, Pete cancelled a standup, Ariana went social media black. I mourned the loss of the term butthole eyes. (I’m still gonna use it, tbh) Ariana got custody of their pet, Piggy Smallz and you know, all of the shit she paid for because she makes 10x what Pete does. And now we have to watch them slowly cover up/eliminate the 1 million tattoos all over their bodies for each other. WooooOoooo Buddy. No seriously, peep below. Just on their hands alone they have like 3 matching tattoos. You know how people say tattoos are forever so think about what you’re doing? Lolololol let’s cover our bodies in each other’s names and phrases. FTR, Pete also did this with his ex girlfriend and had to glaze on over those as well. He’s no rook to the breakup & immediately eliminate body art game. Extra funny slash sad that he tattooed the pig on him and she took it. Maybe consider part time custody for the little oinker?!

3. I love this wedding dress.

Karlie-Kloss-Dior-Wedding-Dress

Karlie Kloss got hitched (and Taylor wasn’t there…a detail that apparently needed to be pointed out. SHE’S ON A WORLD TOUR, GUYS.) Either way, YES MA’AM to this dress!!! I’m lovin it a whole lot. That’s all. See! I can be nice sometimes!

4. My childhood crushes need to stop getting arrested.

WHAT is it with classic 90’s child stars getting arrested for assault? Like 90% of the Sandlot cast got arrested, including my heart Benny the Jet Rodriguez and now we’ve got Jesse former bad boy whose life was turned around by Annie, Glen and his BFF killer whale Willy getting pinched for a domestic with his girlfriend. Allegedly he accused her of cheating on him with her coworker, busted the door down kool-aid man style and grabbed her. YOIKES Jess. Not a good look. That shit will get you sent right back to Wade and the other orphans every time. Where’s Willy when you need him? Oh that’s right, he’s dead because Seaworld killed him. THE HITS KEEP ON COMING. Smash play on Michael Jackson and let his soulful nonsense wash all of this away. If JTT gets arrested next I will LOSE MY SHIT.

5. Eminem performed in the clouds.

Jimmy Kimmel’s in NYC this week and I guess he really wanted to make a splash so he had Eminem make a Venom music video in the Empire State Building. I’ve always been a music video fan and it’s pretty cool how he filmed it there and the way that it was shot but what’s absolutely terrifying is that he’s at the tippy top just rapping like it ain’t no thang. I went to the Empire State Building when I was like 11, so you could say I’m pretty worldly. The elevator ride alone was terrifying seeing how high you were going up and then when I got up there I had about enough courage to get a picture taken with my tiny sunglasses on for my spring break photo album and then it was curtains. Can’t imagine actually MOVING AROUND UP THERE. What a badass you are, Em. Also lol to the fact that no one knew what was going on and just kept taking videos from street level of the empire state building with flashing neon lights. Bet they got some real quality shots of Em-Nasty doin his thang.

Red Carpet

AMA’s Red Carpet 2018

I tuned into the AMA’s to watch badd bitch Tay throw a ton of side eye and dramatic arm drops and let me tell you, she delivered. It’s no surprise she was my favorite look of the night as well. It IS surprising how generous I was for a group of hooligan youths at an awards show that’s all fan-voted though.

WORST

ashleeevan

I’ve seen Ash look better and to be honest I’m pretty sick of her top knot (I watch her reality show and she rarely takes that thing out) and I think it goes without saying that flood pants and a blazer over a bare chest is a hard no, Evan.

beberexha

This is the kind of red carpet look where you question the team of stylists around you and who told you this was awards show worthy. The hair and dress are god awful.

cardib

This is Cardi B. Obviously bitch is loud in everything that she does including chirping and clucking like a goddamn loon instead of speaking actual words. I almost hate it so much that I love it. Almost.

dualipakelsea

Knocked out two worst dressed in one pic. One in a terrible wedding dress and the other in a bee/zebra inspired costume.

khalid

Will 80’s mom ever be chic on a black man? Chuckin the deuces really added to the overall look thooo.

chloehalle

Oh, look! It’s the new music act: creepy twins who wear matching cloaks!

kylerichards

How this bid weaseled her way onto a red carpet is beyond me but she looks like a Vegas show girl and that is the most obvious.

What.The.Shit.

postmalone

This is the face of rap today. This guy. What did we do to deserve this?

camilacabello

This is so so so so boring. Also unrelated but kind of related to the hate I’m feeling toward this outfit: that song Havana makes me wanna rip my ears clean off my head. Double also, tailor your pants.

tyra

SHINE BRIGHT, SHINE FAR…get this stupid outfit off Tyra, you’re not a Barbie magically brought to life, you’re a real human wearing a pompom as a skirt paired with a pirates shirt.

BEST

amberheard

Kind of a random celeb to be at this caliber of awards show but at least she looks good!

carrie

Classic bump pic where you can’t even see the bump. Oooh but she giving us that leg, guuuurl.

chainsmokers

These two have v. punchable faces but damnit credit where credit is due with some spicy suits and funky shoes.

cobietaran

COBIE! GET IT BOO! Robin Sparkles indeed.

These two typically look like giant assholes so props for announcing they’re back together via red carpet and also looking fly as hell. G Eazy is pulling off those leather pants and Halsey isn’t wearing silk lingerie for once!

Television

Pilot Szn 2018

I feel like I haven’t done this in a while and I’m trying to jazz up The Salty again, so I’ve taken my precious time and dedicated it to watching all of the new shows (so far) this Fall season. There’s a chill in the air, I’m finally not working on Saturdays and Sundays and I’ve glued my bhole to the couch to watch some new TV all weekend long. It’s all for you. So that you don’t have to be bothered watching a show that is TERRIBLE (all sitcoms) and you can just focus on getting into the good good. Keep reading for my educated takes based on a single thirty or sixty minute episode.

SKIP:

Single Parents, ABC, Wednesdays 9:30p EST

single-parents

I should’ve known this was gonna be a no right from the start because of how many kids are in this cast photo but wishful thinking I was like well it’s the creator of New Girl and maybe they’ll just focus on the adult story lines. NOPE. The premise here is that Will (Taran Killam) is the nerd dad who tries too hard and embarrasses his daughter and pretty much everyone around him. The other parents try to help him get laid and make him cooler but there is a LOT of Moana singing and overacting and because it’s 2018 the black kid is gay and loves dancing and fashion. PROGRESSIVE. In summary, this show sucks and not even Brad Garrett could save it, which I had high hopes for.

I Feel Bad, NBC, Thursdays 9:30p EST

I Feel Bad - Season Pilot

This one’s Amy Poehler produced (there’s always something to draw you in) and it screams FEMINIST TV. Nothing wrong with that. If it was funny I’d be down. The idea is that moms/women in general have guilt and feel bad about every single thing in life and how to ignore that and be a baller, basically. Embrace the chaos. Emet is raising three kids, working in video games as like the only woman and trying not to turn into her mom. Story lines were decent, but the jokes just weren’t all there. A main feature of the pilot was her daughter quitting quiz show to join the dance team and today’s youths being a buncha booty-shakin hoes has never been more prevalent. WHATEVER HAPPENED TO TUTUS?! WHEN I WAS THAT AGE I DANCED TO THE SONG LOLLIPOP STRAIGHT OUTTA 1948 WITH A BONNET PINNED TO MY HEAD.

dance

And this is the future here, folks:

Screen Shot 2018-10-01 at 10.01.25 PMScreen Shot 2018-10-01 at 10.04.46 PM

Be afraid. Be very afraid. Also, props to the only line in the pilot that made me laugh out loud, “Our daughter’s milkshakes brought all the boys to the yard. Literally.”

The Cool Kids, Fox, Fridays 830p EST

The-Cool-Kids-Fox

Friday show, kiss of death, AMIRITE?! This was supposed to be hyped because it’s got a huge comedian/variety show cast from like 1965 or something. Basically it takes place in an old folks home and the boys don’t want to let a girl into the club after their friend kicks the bucket. Not JUST a girl. A ginger. Just kidding her hair color has nothing to do with it but it might’ve spiced things up a bit. The best character on this show BY FAR was Leslie Jordan because he’s adorable and I want to put him in my pocket. Old people might enjoy this one but I’m out. My boyf found it hysterical, so apparently I’m dating a senior citizen.

The Neighborhood, Fox, Mondays 8p EST

Neighborhood

Everything you need to know about this show, you can summarize from this over the top cast photo. From “HOOD” being a different color and on a separate line to ONLY showing the black family and not the white family it’s ALSO about, this show is racist AF. And not in a “white people can’t say it’s racist way.” The entire 28 minutes spanned a group of horrendous over-actors just calling each other racist every few minutes. QUALITY TV, FOLKS. What you can’t see in this photo is that 2 Broke Girls Beth Behrs and New Girl Max Greenfield are the other leads. They’re a white toast couple who move with their son Grover to the neighborHOOD, where it’s AOK to wear an orange velour jumpsuit, apparently. And this cat is mad at THEM. Essentially it’s a show trying to be funny about the fact that the climate right now is not NOT racist. Keep trying.

WATCH:

Happy Together, Fox, Mondays 830p EST

Happy-Together

According to my actual notes, on paper, because I’m a scholar…this show was the “best of this shit crop of sitcoms.” And you can take that to the bank. A show that was actually likable and I laughed out loud for more than five jokes!!! WE HAVE A WINNER! I mean, can you really go wrong with the Wayans, though? D.Way Jr. killed it in both New Girl and Happy Endings and most importantly, he doesn’t feel the need to shout his lines like 90% of these sitcom stars are doing. If it’s louder, it doesn’t mean it’s funnier. Just A TIP. Also fun fact about me, because why not, every time the Wayans are brought up in any capacity, I feel compelled to google their family tree because there’s roughly 600 of them and it’s very fascinating to me. Like HOW is Damon a JUNIOR to the guy from My Wife and Kids? It’s incredible. Anyway, you’re welcome for sending you down that rabbit hole. The boyf and I wondered aloud why they haven’t just created a show based on their family yet. Don’t steal that idea. It’s ours. Anyway, Jake and Claire are a boring ass married couple who spend Saturday nights recording song voicemails until a celebrity Jake reps decides to come live with them to get out of the spotlight. Trying to make this guy like Harry Styles was borderline offensive. Like honestly, not even close. Either way, it’s funny and cute and I’d watch again.

A Million Little Things, ABC, Wednesdays 9p EST

A-millionlittlethings

Lotta hype with this one about being as twisty as This is Us and also just as emosh. What I didn’t prepare for is the fact that I cannot for the life of me remember the correct name of this. First I was calling it A Million Little Pieces because that’s a book. Then I moved onto A Million Little Reasons because they said that at one point in the pilot. Gawd, I can’t keep it straight. I’ll keep working on it though because I thought it was good and I’m sucked in. I was so absorbed that the only note I wrote was, “Sick opening sequence with a baller cover of All These Things That I’ve Done by the Killers.” So there ya go.

RON LIVINGSTON, DAVID GIUNTOLI, JAMES RODAY, ROMANY MALCO JR

The show is about a gang of bros who met in an elevator, bonded real hard and then became besties/Bruins season ticket holders. Spoiler alert: one of them commits suicide and the first epi was borderline depressing but I have hope for this show to follow the friends in the aftermath as they value life a little more and also of COURSE there’s juicy secrets, which I’m all IN ON.

Manifest, NBC, Mondays 10p EST

Manifest-NBC-TV-Series-2018

Didn’t really expect to like this show once I heard the premise but it was RIVETING, tbh. A family coming back from vacation in 2013 split between two flights and that second flight had turbulence through the MF’ing roof (like honestly how was everyone so calm afterward) and then when it landed everyone was like your flight disappeared 5 years ago how ya’ll still alive? The crew on the flight was like uhhh we had turbulence and dass itt. They haven’t aged a day and everyone else on land is 5 years older. FREAKY. Then the people from the flight start hearing shit and now it’s ON. There’s so many mysteries and so little time. I’m going to be real with you and tell you that I’ve always been creeped out by whispering voices in TV or Movies, like even “if you build it, he will come” creeped me out and that was supposed to be a feel good family flick, but I’m going to stick with this one for a little longer because I think there’s more to the story than mind whispers that one hundo percent will give me night terrors. Plus, I don’t know who this actress is but she’s a babe soda and I’m on her team.

Since this hasn’t premiered yet, technically I can’t recommend it. But let’s be real here, it’s Connie Britton. Also, I did listen to the podcast it’s based on and I CAN recommend that. It’s basically a crime series about a creepy ass sociopath guy who dates a bunch of women and turns out to be a real psycho. Can’t wait for this to premiere so I can be equal parts drooling over Connie and her hair coming back to my TV screen and terrified to shower alone. Don’t @ me if this sucks and I said you should watch it.

Emmys Red Carpet 2018

I’d like to say that I watched the 70th Emmy’s last night but mostly I just talked over it and shoved cheeses, meats & olives into my mouth. Certainly didn’t stop me from sounding off about everyone’s outfits, tweeting about nipples and laughing at the cringeworthy proposal that occurred onstage for all to see. Feels good to be back.

WORST

Oh, ok. So I guess the rule is if you won an Emmy last year that gives you the right to show up in a silk button down with a corset layered over it and adorned with costume pearls. I just re read this and HOW COULD I FORGET THE G-D BRIEFCASE SHE’S CARRYING TO TOP IT ALL OFF. UGH. Get out of my face with this, Laura.

This was not her only trash outfit of the night and very much subscribes to the theme of women dressing like they live in the Great Depression, which thanks to a knowledgeable customer the other day, I learned was in 1935.

Well why don’t we just start adorning ourselves in neon parachutes? WHY NOT.

Hey Mario, injuring your foot is not a good enough reason to wear suit shorts.

Pretty surprising turn of events for Kristen Bell to end up on my shit list but this dress sucks.

There’s gotta be a Beetlejuice on every red carpet. But like, why.

This would’ve been my dream outfit for a special event if you had asked me when I was 7 in 1998.

This was Darren’s night to shine because his portrayal as a serial killer in the Versace show was nightmares and yet he chose to wear what looks like a jizz stained suit for it.

US-ENTERTAINMENT-TELEVISION-EMMYS-ARRIVALS

I honestly can’t tell if her and Maya Rudolph were trying to be ironic with their outfits straight out of a different time period. The last time I wore a statement belt was freshman year of college. And on top of that she’s rocking a rat tail sticking out of her head and this pattern is ROUGH.

Does this sequin nightmare have actual horns?

I think Allison ripped this off of a horny 17 year old at prom.

70th Emmy Awards - Arrivals

I read a headline that this dress has a special meaning…I’m guessing it has to do with pride but like it’s not necessary to dress like a clown for an elegant event.

70th Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Carrying the sparkles and platforms torch of the evening.

As much as I love mint. This dress is wrong. All kinds of wrong.

NBC's "70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards" - Red Carpet

So apparently this was her wedding dress. She is divorced now and supposedly wanted the dress to have a night on the town. What really had a night on the town were her erect nipples. When the Ungermyer took the stage to accept the Emmy, her areolas quite literally poked my eyeballs out. She even had the gall to mention that she skipped the bra. NO NEED TO LET US KNOW, WE RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE WHEN YOUR NIPS TOUCHED THE MIC BEFORE YOU DID.

I thought I read somewhere that Kirsten Dunst is preggers but judging by this photo and her knockers busting out of her dress yet having 0.0 waist or belly, I’m very perplexed. Landry is literally scaring me.

70th Primetime Emmy Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 17 Sep 2018

I’m not sure that the Emmys are the place to roll up like you’re Janis Joplin. She looks great for like a concert or the AMA’s.

70th Emmy Awards - Arrivals

Not even a little bit flattering.

70th Primetime Emmy Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 17 Sep 2018

Could everyone just put their nipples away for one night? Also props to the “paint your two front strands of hair blonde” color job.

70th Primetime Emmy Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 17 Sep 2018

I am afraid. Also if you look at her from the right angle it looks like she has elf ears and she’s carrying a bible. That is all.

Tracy looks like an idiot. Which he might’ve been aiming for. So this could be a compliment.

70th Primetime Emmy Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 17 Sep 2018

This is just a tripping hazard. I mean, come on. I’m assuming she didn’t expect to win or she’d have a broken neck.

Alison Janney is having a moment lately because she’s got a hot bod and her career is still kickin but I don’t think that gives her the right to dress like a showgirl. She could’ve rocked a million other looks way better.

This is a dress for a 12 year old.

I think this is a tasteful amount of feathers and Keri looks like a babe.

70th Primetime Emmy Awards, Arrivals, Los Angeles, USA - 17 Sep 2018

You’ll find that many made the best dressed list just because I violently hated so many outfits that when I saw an outfit that was just fine, I threw them a bone. Her legs look good so here ya go.

Joey King of Kissing Booth fame gets her princess moment but like where the hell is Flynn?

This is so weird and yet I’m mesmerized by it. Probably because it’s Alexis Bledel and she looks beautiful in anything.

It kind of looks like she’s barefoot but if you’re not distracted by that like I am, check out this sassy jumpsuit equipped with cape! This might be sneaking up into one of my favorite looks of the night.

Showing the men some love.

I mean we get it, you’re skinny and you have big boobs but I do like this color a lot!

NBC's "70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards" - Red Carpet

Although I usually shy away from showing off your pecs in a dress, this color looked good on her and looked good on camera when she did her not funny awards show bit while introducing a category.

NBC's "70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards" - Red Carpet

Mandy always looks good but I am wondering why we needed to mermaid the dress so short that her feet are sticking out. Her cleavage looks luscious though.

70th Emmy Awards - Arrivals

This suits her. Would I wear it? Never. But she’s rocking the hell out of that tulip dress.

NBC's "70th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards" - Red Carpet

My favorite look of the night and it ain’t even close and I swear it’s not because she’s married to JT and they look BOMB together. But like, it also kind of is…

The Bachelorette – Supes Unpredictable

becca

Becca’s family has made it to the Maldives and she can’t wait to ask them to pick her future husband because she loves them both and can’t decide. Her family gets the Garrett sneak preview that he’s been married before. Tough room to walk into when the only info they’re fed is that he’s already done the damn thing. Garrett makes a super vague toast about Becca’s dead dad. Just say you wish you could’ve met her dad rather than make a long-winded cringe worthy announcement that not everyone could be there in person. Then Garrett literally full on sobs to each member of Becca’s family and it gives me all the uncomfies. When Becca’s sister (who I wouldn’t have known was her sister unless they kept captioning it) tells her how emosh Garrett is, she’s like oh he’s never cried in front of me. Seems like a weird time to pull the waterworks if your future wife hasn’t even seen you shed a tear yet, but whatevs.

Becca then tells her family to treat Blake like they did Garrett. Nothing like telling your family how to act around the guy that’s obviously not going to win! Blake’s looking like a trendy lil snack in his pink shorts and matching bouquet. Too bad he’s about to get his heart crushed. He says he’s excited a billion times like he’s having a Tourrette’s episode. The nervous energy is palpable. When Blake sits down with the sis, he uses the CLASSIC interview tip to bide time, saying great question when Becca’s sister interrogates him like she’s hiring him to be her brother in law. I’ve been doing a few interviews lately and I also use that tactic. Except when I say great question that’s usually my answer because great question universally means you stumped me and I’m too stupid to form a coherent answer here, thank you for your time. Becca’s sister is Team Blake and says he would challenge her and be more of a teammate. Becca bursts into tears, so it’s obvious where this is going. Becca’s mom is already comforting Blake like you’ll be fine if she doesn’t pick you. MOM SIXTH SENSE. Not a great start to the ‘sode for your boy Blake.

Becca’s family is like sucks that you have to make this decision, best of luck to ya. Becca asks what her dad would think and her mom’s like he’d want you to be happy. NO SHIT.

Becca’s last date with Garrett is on a yacht and they talk about how lucky they are and stop all serious conversation to squeal over dolphins swimming by. Ugh we get it you’re happy and lucky and everything’s peachy on your free trip to the Maldives. Later Garrett and Becca talk about how they touched all night at their slumber party.

Becca’s legs send mixed signals her on her last date with Blake. She wrapped her legs around both SO HOW WILL WE KNOW WHO SHE CHOOSES?! Blake says they constantly challenge each other, which makes it very obvious now that it’s been said 10 times about their relationship that the producer has fed them this phrase. Blake gives her a homemade time capsule of their time together. YOIKES.

Back in the studio, Chris Harrison is here to tell us that what we are about to see, he HAS NEVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE THIS, GUYS. PREPARE YOURSELVES. Spoiler alert: Becca dumps Blake and he leaves. Nothing out of the ordinary, just like every single finale. I would ask how this MF’er Chris Harrison sleeps at night feeding us such bullshit lies to try and up the dramatics but I already know the answer to that. He’s rich and famous AF.

Anyway, Becca allows Blake to go to the proposal spot and give his whole speech and Becca looks nothing short of uncomfy throughout the whole thing. Then Becca takes over and basically only speaks in past tense. She says she pictured this moment with him the whole time, which is a real dick thing to say to someone who’s not getting the moment. Not only is the guy getting his heart stomped on but also he has to do it in a full suit in the tropical heat, roasting like a giant sweaty pig. Everyone cries, or just like, sweats from their eyes, who knows.

blake

Cut to Chris Harrison live in the studio with Blake, torturing him for our entertainment. I HOPE YOU FEEL GOOD ABOUT THIS, CHRIS. Blake obviously is having a hard time but felt reassured that their love was real from watching this season back. Nothing notable happens with him and Becca onstage, except for Chris Harrison awkwardly pointing out his “support system.” Hey cameras, pan over there and show that Blake has people here for him so he doesn’t off himself:

Screen Shot 2018-08-06 at 10.31.09 PM

He just is genuinely sad and heartbroken and wants Becca to be happy. I’m gonna go on the record and say that Blake is not the next Bachelor.

She picks Garrett because he reminds her of her dad. I’m just gonna let that sit there. This is the ring. Also gonna let that sit there. Cough cough, Blake’s was better cough.

Screen Shot 2018-08-06 at 10.29.30 PM

IRL, Chris Harrison asks when Garrett knew Becca was the one and he answered “Yeah.” Sweet. They’re sooo happy and in love and Garrett’s sorry for being offensive on Instagram and OF COURSE THEY’RE MOVING TO LA. Chris Harrison surprises them with a 1980’s minivan and Garrett says let’s do the damn thing. KILL ME FOREVER RIGHT NOW. THE END.

PS if you want a good chuckle, look up Garrett’s wedding photos from his last marriage. BECCA 1.0, YO. The two women could be identical twins. K, byeeeeeeeeeeee.
