Because I kinda can’t bear the news about right-wing monsters claiming the teenagers who have found the strength to speak out about gun violence are crisis actors or think about those trolls have just come out and made fun of them — I MEAN IMAGINE WHAT KIND OF INHUMAN PIECE OF TRASH YOU WOULD HAVE TO BE TO ATTACK VICTIMS OF A SHOOTING, OH MY GOD THERE’S THE RAGE AGAIN — because I can’t really wrap my head around that without bursting a few vessels, instead, I’m going to focus on this story about the Real Housewives of New York being trapped on a shitty Colombian “yacht” in rough seas, vomiting and screaming in terror, which is just, frankly hilarious, doubly so for the fact that Sonja Morgan — who is never mentioned in the article — is clearly the source of the story. Can not wait to see this on the show when it returns, and have it distract me from the fact that our country is filled with people who would rather attack children who have been shot at rather than actually part with their precious toys.

President Oprah just donated $500,000 to The March for Our Lives, following President George Clooney and President Amal Clooney’s lead. Meanwhile, the kids behind the movement aren’t sure they want the celebrities to distract from their message, and maybe they aren’t wrong? The minute George Clooney shows up, the cameras are going to pay more attention to him and not a bunch of 16-year-olds, but guess who is more sympathetic to the average American. These kids are smart. Do not underestimate them.
According to a recent survey, 94 percent of women in Hollywood have experienced sexual harassment or assault. While that is a shocking number, based on the questions asked, I think that 94 percent number is applicable to the general population of women, too.
Andy Dick’s girlfriend has sought a restraining order against him and the most surprising thing about this story is that Andy Dick is still a thing.
Paul Marciano is stepping aside from Guess amidst allegations of improper behavior brought by Kate Upton and others.
Steve Wynn is being sued by his company’s shareholders. GOOD.
Meanwhile, the Weinstein Company is trying to distance themselves from him, claiming they had nothing to do with his behavior. You know, except for hiring people whose jobs were expressly to facilitate his behavior, protecting his behavior and to writing into contracts that they knew about his behavior. Good luck with that, guys!
