90 Day Fiancé Season Finale Discussion Post

Let's see what happened to the couples on the absolute worst season of this show yet.

Mushroom Dick and Larissa: Misogynistic schlub Colt doesn't know how to tie a damn tie and has his mother do it for him. Norman Bates asks that his mom walk him down the aisle. (I think for any other son, this would be incredibly sweet, but it's Colt so...) Colt goes behind his fiance's back to invite his MAGA cousin who repeatedly called her a bitch. Colt made Larissa pick a dress from Goodwill because he's fucking cheap loser, but Larissa looks beautiful. Colt remarks that she's managed to control herself (fuck you, dude!). Larissa has sufferedT for this green card. After an argument, Larissa gets arrested and charged with domestic battery. Also Mushroom Dick has been messaging women who definitely aren't his wife.

Parkland survivors and father of Parkland victim respond to Louis CK

A recording of sexual predator Louis CK's recent standup routine got leaked. In it, he can be heard denigrating non-binary and trans people for having the nerve to ask for respect, and the Parkland students for turning their trauma into activism. During his rant, he specifically objected to having the Parkland survivors testify in front of Congress. Only one of them got to do so. Her name is Aalayah Eastmond, and she testified against Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation (op note: maybe a woman speaking out against another sexual predator is what really offended Louis CK). Aalayah has now tweeted this response to the disgraced comedian:

Fred Guttenburg, whose daughter was killed in the Parkland shooting, had a message for CK:

9 Things You Might Have Missed in Taylor Swift's Netflix Concert Film

3. Microphones: Can we take a minute to appreciate the snake detail?
8. She uses a No. 13 golf cart: Lucky 13, her favorite number, of course!

9. The last scene is the most important of all: While in the beginning of the concert movie we were met with negative reports about T.Swift, we ended with a carefree Taylor. We see her skipping away, seeming truly at peace with her life...and her reputation.


A few of Christine and the Queens' favourite things


How should the interviewer call her? Héloïse, Christine, or Chris? "Chris", she offers, "Nice and short, but I haven't completely decided on it yet."

There's never been a band, the name is to hide that Chris does everything by herself: "Male artists that do everything by themselves are admired, women mistrusted. No-one ever wondered if Prince really did everything by himself, while people wonder which genie is pulling my strings and doing the work."

Tiffany Haddish: I'll Wear Fur Until Police Stop Killing Black People

When a fan wearing a raccoon fur jacket told Tiffany Haddish that she loved her, Haddish replied "If you really love me, let me have your jacket" - and the fan did.

Haddish then posted the above video on Instagram, in which she thanked the fan and said "I'm gonna wear fur every day until the police stop killing black people. That's my new protest. So sorry PETA - don't be mad at me. Be mad at the police. When they stop killing black people, I'll stop wearing fur. See how that goes? 'Cuz people are important and so are the animals - to keep me warm."

Other celebrities posted in the comments. Nick Cannon, NeNe Leakes and Kendrick Sampson (Lyft Bae) voiced their approval, with Sampson saying "Look at all the people pissed about this that haven't ever stood up for black lives."

But vegan Russell Simmons wasn't so supportive: he commented "White supremacy is a disease that takes on many forms and has many symptoms. The abuse of other beings will not address that...or heal ourselves. I love you Tiffany, but I wish you would reconsider this route of protest."

The 37-year-olds are the only people to have won 20 or more Grand Slam singles titles in the Open Era besides Steffi Graf, who has won 22.

The two have never faced each other on a court during a tour (they did play on the same team in 2010 to raise money for Haiti). But they will on New Year’s Day at the Hopman Cup, where Federer and Williams will face off in a mixed doubles match between Switzerland and the United States.
