Kathy Griffin has lung cancer, having surgery today

- having half her lung removed in surgery
- she never smoked
- hopefully no chemo/radiation, as it's confined to one lung
- yes, also vaxxed

Ugh, that's so unfair. She lost her mom in March 2020 (not to COVID) and of course the whole insanely disproportionate Tr*mp mask thing seriously messed up her life & career. And now this! Fuck cancer!! 🖕

Sandra Oh for The Cut

Sandra Oh is interviewed by Amanda Peet on their new show, Netflix’s The Chair, as well as Sandra's career.

  • In addition to the final season of Killing Eve, Sandra Oh has the dramedy series The Chair and the psychological horror movie Umma coming out.

  • Sandra did not have the same experiences of other actresses in choice of roles. She feels she has played rich, supporting parts and played rich, full, leading characters; with a lot of the dimensionality coming from their relationships with other female characters.

  • Sandra on her current career and the contrast between her characters in Killing Eve and The Chair: "I can say that I feel like my creative chops are all at the surface...I feel super emotionally toned because Killing Eve is like diving down into the ocean, and The Chair was just like flying and became instinctive. And personally, I feel in great creative shape and grateful to work on projects that are challenging the unbelievable pressure of being a modern woman."

  • They are halfway through filming the final season of Killing Eve, and Sandra finds it exciting to sum up "an impossible relationship." She does find that it’s become harder and more impossible to figure out how it ends or how it continues as time has gone on.

  • After the Atlanta spa shooting, she was touched by how many crew members of The Chair went with her to a protest. "I felt like there’s a lot of fear, and the only thing I felt at that moment to offer was to be strong. Reach out in the face of fear; practice reaching out to others."

Aubrey Plaza to Star in Hulu Drama Pilot ‘Olga Dies Dreaming’

Aubrey Plaza is set to star in the Hulu drama pilot “Olga Dies Dreaming,” based on the upcoming book of the same name by Xóchitl Gonzalez. Gonzalez is also writing and executive producing the pilot, and Alfonso Gomez-Rejon will direct and executive produce.

Olga Dies Dreaming tells the story of a Nuyorican brother and sister (Plaza) from a gentrifying Sunset Park, Brooklyn, reckoning with the absent, politically radical mother and their glittering careers among New York City’s elite in the wake of Hurricane Maria.

Plaza will star in the titular role as Olga, a renowned wedding planner whose surface successes mask a darker interior. For Olga, the pursuit of perfection has become a compulsive survival mechanism as she tries to climb as far from her past as she can.


Madison Beer expresses frustration over lack of label support

Madison Beer took to Twitter today to vent her frustration with label Epic Records, accusing them of doing nothing to promote her or her music.

"I hate my label so much," Beer wrote in a now deleted tweet. "They do literally nothing to support or promote me or anything."

The 22 year old also claimed that she footed most of the bill for her "Reckless" music video, which premiered in late June, because Epic "didn't believe in it at all."

Beer's debut album, Life Support, peaked at number 65 on the Billboard 200 in February, after originally being slated for release in early 2019. She is scheduled to embark on the first leg of the Life Support Tour in October.

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge - August

Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6.

ONTD, what do you plan on watching this month? What did you watch during the month of July?

A new Charli XCX era is upon us

What we know:

  • It'll drop on September 2nd.

  • This will be the last album for her contract. Unsure whether she will re-sign, she's been very hot/cold with her label. Her label has been pushing for a more mainstream sound (i.e. Blame It On Your Love was made a single for her self-titled only after pressure from her label, N1A/Pop2 were dropped as "mixtapes" because her label didn't trust in their success).

  • On social media she's been teasing she is creatively interested in "selling out" and that she loves cheesy pop.

  • Writing credits are listed as: Caroline Ailin, Charlotte Aitchison (Charli herself), Mattias Larsson, Noonie Bao, Oscar Holter & Robin Fredriksson.

  • OP musings: Based on this I'm thinking it'll be a very mainstream sound. The individuals on the credits worked on songs such as Gimmie Love/Run Away With Me/Too Much by Carly Rae Jepsen, Don't Start Now/Fever/New Rules by Dua Lipa, Really Don't Like U by Tove Lo, Slumber Party/Do You Wanna Come Over by Britney Spears and Charli's own Gone/Official/Cross You Out/BIOYL and more.

'Cooking with Paris' is undercooked, according to critics

The first review for Paris Hilton's cooking reality series on Netflix is in, and it's scathing.

Variety calls the program "a disaster" that is "utterly unappealing".

The paper references how in an episode with rapper Saweetie, the 40-year-old heiress "mispronounces the names of Mexican food items past the point of amusement", relies heavily on her staff to grant her commands, and is unwilling to actually learn anything; "Who is going to root for a person, who quite literally makes a show of her lack of interest in reaching beyond the protection of wealth?"


Matt Damon: I've Never Used F-Slur in My Life!!!

Matt Damon has released the following statement after an interview dropped yesterday where he casually mentioned he stopped saying "fa**ot" a few months ago after his daughter told him it was hateful.

“During a recent interview, I recalled a discussion I had with my daughter where I attempted to contextualize for her the progress that has been made – though by no means completed – since I was growing up in Boston and, as a child, heard the word ‘f*g’ used on the street before I knew what it even referred to,” Damon said in a statement to Variety. “I explained that that word was used constantly and casually and was even a line of dialogue in a movie of mine as recently as 2003; she in turn expressed incredulity that there could ever have been a time where that word was used unthinkingly. To my admiration and pride, she was extremely articulate about the extent to which that word would have been painful to someone in the LGBTQ+ community regardless of how culturally normalized it was. I not only agreed with her but thrilled at her passion, values and desire for social justice.

“I have never called anyone ‘f****t’ in my personal life and this conversation with my daughter was not a personal awakening. I do not use slurs of any kind,” Damon continued. “I have learned that eradicating prejudice requires active movement toward justice rather than finding passive comfort in imagining myself ‘one of the good guys’. And given that open hostility against the LGBTQ+ community is still not uncommon, I understand why my statement led many to assume the worst. To be as clear as I can be, I stand with the LGBTQ+ community.”

Tess Holliday reacts to National Enquirer 50 best and worst beach bodies

National Enquirer decided it was a good idea to do a "50 best and worst bikini bodies" spread.
Plus-size model Tess Holliday was one of the featured worst bikini bodies and obviously had a reaction.
She says the media always acts shocked when celebs suffer mental health breakdowns but they continue to perpetuate unrealistic body standards & push toxic diet culture on us all.

Some of the "worst" bodies are Katie Holmes wrinkly tummy (!!), Goldie Hawn (75 years old), Jennifer Aniston looks like she "downed to many burritos" and Kate Hudson who could use some tightening up.
