Welp, here we are ladies and gentlemen, we've made it halfway through the season finale of 90 Day Fiancé and I'm spent. Where to begin? Colteee and Larissa were hella late and they still looked bad. Leida wears very, very questionable contacts and possibly (by that, I mean definitely) fake Louboutins. Jonathan and his child bride wear real Louboutins while she mocks Larissa's pronunciation. Jay seems to think Tinder is just for finding friends and Ashley is irritated the whole two hours. Olga and Richie visit via internet connection and are adorable, but Steven remains a little a-hole who still doesn't know what a social security number is. Eric still looks like a deadbeat dad. Kalani and Asuelu look like they just want to escape this whole charade. Oliver remains a little cutie pie.
This episode has been brought to you by Leida's favorite high-end shop: the Coach outlet.
- Brian Tyree Henry appeared on Jimmy Kimmel last night to talk about his roles in If Beale Street Could Talk and Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse.
- BTH's shirt features Bob Ross & some happy little trees.
- He's disappointed he didn't have any scenes with Regina King in Beale Street. Jimmy mentions an article that ran in the NYT where both of their critics say that he should get an Oscar nomination for his role in Beale Street, which is small but memorable.
- He's an uncle, and went to see Spider-Man with a big group of his family members, many of whom missed one of his big scenes going to get concessions.
- Wanted to be a part of his high school's excellent marching band, who were known as the "Magnificent Marching Machine", and since he wasn't good at playing an instrument, he was an H.H. (horn-holder) in the baritone section.
- Was also the mascot at school football games.
He's incredibly talented, and in two of the best movies of the year - go see them!!
Kimmel said it was “unfortunate that these people, these workers who have nothing to do with this ridiculous wall, aren’t getting paychecks, especially right after the holidays.”
So, Kimmel vowed to put a federal employee to work on every episode of his show until the shutdown ends. Jimmmy welcomed John Kostelnik, a prison guard at the Federal Correctional Complex in Victorville, California, as the newest member of his house band.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is already a composer, a lyricist, an actor and an author. Now he's going to be a bookseller. https://t.co/LmBOvDbmRg— New York Times Books (@nytimesbooks) January 8, 2019
- The Drama Book Shop is a century-old shop that sells scripts, sheet music and other "stage-related reading material". It's being priced out of its home in the theater district of Manhattan due to rising rent costs.
- NYC mayor’s media and entertainment commissioner, Julie Menin, says: “The store is a gem and a cultural institution in New York, and we want to make sure it’s saved." The city is working with the shop's new owners, which includes Lin-Manuel Miranda, to find affordable location in Manhattan.
- In addition to Miranda, the new owners are: Thomas Kail (Hamilton director); Jeffrey Seller (the lead producer of Hamilton); and James L. Nederlander (he is the president of Nederlander Organization, which operates the theater where Hamilton is running).
- They purchased the store from Rozanne Seelen: "Ms. Seelen said she sold it for the cost of the remaining inventory, some rent support in the store’s final weeks, and a pledge to retain her as a consultant." She also called Lin-Manuel and Tommy her "white knights" for stepping in to save the shop.
- On the bookshop's importance to him: “When I was in high school I would go to the old location and sit on the floor and read plays — I didn’t have the money to buy them. After college Tommy Kail and I met in the Drama Book Shop basement, and I wrote a good deal of ‘In the Heights’ there.”
- It's not the first time he's stepped in - in 2016, after a pipe burst, he encouraged his fans to patronize the shop:
- The Drama Book Shop's lease is up this month; the current location will be closing Jan 20th. It will open in its new (but as of right now, unknown) location sometime this fall.

How to Date Men When You Hate Men
From New Yorker and Onion writer and comedian Blythe Roberson, How to Date Men When You Hate Men is a comedy philosophy book aimed at interrogating what it means to date men within the trappings of modern society. Blythe Roberson’s sharp observational humor is met by her open-hearted willingness to revel in the ugliest warts and shimmering highs of choosing to live our lives amongst other humans. She collects her crushes like ill cared-for pets, skewers her own suspect decisions, and assures readers that any date you can mess up, she can top tenfold. And really, was that date even a date in the first place?

Bill Murray thought it was a good idea to toast the Greenbook cast for their Golden Globes wins by tapping their foreheads with vodka. Mahershala Ali, an observant Muslim, ended up with vodka going into his eyes and his mouth.
Here is what Mahershala had to say about the incident:
“Bill toasted his glass on Viggo’s head, Linda’s head, and then toasts on my head and vodka spills all over my face and is running down into my eyes and in my mouth. And I’m doing the whole interview with an eye closed. “Vodka in the eye…it felt like hot acid rolling down my face.”
Ali had no hard feelings about the incident though because "Hey it's Bill Murray."

Fans of youtuber Taylor Richard, an ex-model turned vlogger from Canada, discovered that her husband (Tom Lip, commonly referred to as 'Elbow-San' by her fans) owns a company called 'MensClub.' On the surface, this page appears to be a generic Maxim style website for men in Hong Kong. However, it was soon noticed that there was section for girls 'under-18', a feature called 'Schoolgirls that we fxxed', and a mysterious 'private zone.'[Spoiler (click to open)]

In the past, Taylor has worked with Mensclub (The archived copy of an interview she did with them, a post from MensClub fb page of an event she did with MC, and a screenshot of a vaguely suggestive photo of her from the same page) so she is fully aware of the business.
MensClub also recently featured an article discussing a 13 year old swimsuit model on their page. The photos are taken from her instagram, but I will let the translation of the text provided by one user speak for itself. [Spoiler (click to open)]

Asked by Variety if she still auditions for things, Linds responded:
"I only auditioned for “The Parent Trap.” I would be terrified to audition. I don’t even know what it would be like. I think I would freeze. My agent asked me to read for something, and I was like, “I can’t.” I would panic. It’s such a different experience. I don’t think I could do it. Someone asked me to audition once — it was Oliver Stone for “Savages,” and I met with him and they wanted me to read, and I said, “I’m really, really bad at this, and I’m going to forget everything the second I start, so I might just ad-lib it.” And he was like, “You were great.” And I was like, “OK.” It was such a weird experience."

Margot Robbie is allegedly attached to a live-action movie about Mattel's famous Barbie doll. She will apparently play Barbie, though there is no word on the plot.
The movie was supposed to star Amy Schumer and film in June of last year, but Schumer had to drop out, as did Anne Hathaway later. In Schumer's version, Barbie gets kicked out of her perfect world for not being perfect enough.
Mattel is hoping that the movie will spark toy sales again. Barbies have dropped in popularity, and Mattel's stock prices have hit a 10-year low. Last year they expected to make profits of $913 million, and instead had a loss of $418 million.

Cook County (the largest county in Illinois) State's Attorney Kim Foxx wants survivors and witnesses to come forward if they have any information about the Illiterate Predator to investigate claims of sexual assault and domestic violence. Kelly's studio is on the West Side of Chicago and he also owns a separate home. Two families have already contacted her office because their relatives has been missing and they have been unable to reach them. There are no charges pending against R. Kelly in Cook County or the State of Illinois, but it looks as though if people come forward, a case could be built against the wretched Pied Piper of R&B. Apparently Kelly has been on their radar to investigate but due to lack of cooperation (and possibly some police corruption) charges have never come to fruition.

Bryan Cranston has defended playing a disabled character in his new film, saying it is an actor's job to play different people.
He plays a quadriplegic billionaire in comedy-drama The Upside.
Cranston said that while he was aware of "the need to expand opportunities", his latest casting was a "business decision".
"We live in the world of criticism, if we're willing to get up and try something, we have to also be willing to take criticism. As actors, we're asked to be other people, to play other people. If I, as a straight, older person, and I'm wealthy, I'm very fortunate, does that mean I can't play a person who is not wealthy, does that mean I can't play a homosexual? I don't know, where does the restriction apply, where is the line for that? I think it is worthy for debate to discuss those issues."
