Real-life supervillain Louise Linton told Elle Magazine that she has been approached by “many people” to do a reality show but that she’s “super-duper” scared of the thought of doing one. PLEASE, TV GODS, MAKE THIS HAPPEN. Just look at her comments about her hilariously evil clapback to a comment about being out of touch after a hilariously tone-deaf Instagram post:
“I think after being kicked and slapped on social media a billion times, I had this one time. This lady said I was a deplorable human being, and that hurt,” Linton says, her voice trembling in sincere horror and self-pity. Her hands are shaking. “So I had this knee-jerk reaction and I was like…blarghhhh. I was feeling like a regular person. And regular people, when someone says something mean to you on social media, regular people are allowed to respond.”
How this person isn’t already a Real Housewife is a mystery.
OOH, FUN, Let’s pick which show she should be on:
According to his new budget, President TV would completely cut all funding for PBS. PBS’ CEO’s response:
Public broadcasting has earned bipartisan Congressional support over the years thanks to the value we provide to taxpayers. PBS, our 350 member stations and our legions of local supporters will continue to remind leaders in Washington of the significant benefits the public receives in return for federal funding, a modest investment of about $1.35 per citizen per year, which include school readiness for kids 2-8, support for teachers and homeschoolers, public safety communications and lifelong learning. PBS is focused on providing high-quality content and universal public service to the American people, which is why we enjoy strong support in every region of the country, in both rural and urban areas, and across the political spectrum.
Speaking of PBS, we will have a Mister Rogers stamp soon.
Omarosa keeps talking smack about the Trump administration on Celebrity Big Brother, this time taking on Pence, and I don’t care if she’s shopping a book or whatever, I AM HERE FOR ALL OF IT.
Omarosa vs. Piers Morgan. GROSS, DON’T MAKE ME CHOOSE, CAN’T I HATE THEM BOTH?
Ryan Murphy has jumped ship from Fox to Netflix in a MEGA deal. He had previously expressed his concern about the Disney/Fox merger, and apparently wasn’t kidding. But what does this mean overall? Netflix clearly is trying to position itself well before Disney releases its own streaming service, despite Disney claiming they aren’t aiming to kill Netflix. OK. And Vanity Fair also argues that this might be Netflix’s attempt to win more prizes, now that Hulu is starting to dominate in that area.
This is just some very good speculation about what might happen on Game of Thrones next season. Remember, we only saw the shadow of a dragon fly over King’s Landing, not the dragon itself.
We will have only 8 episodes of Stranger Things next season.
Andy Cohen is Team SJP, obviously.
