Seriously, if Hannibal and Will had kissed in the finale of Hannibal, it would have been the single least sexually charged thing that happened between them on that show.
You’re not crazy: commercials are playing louder than the programming — which they are not legally allowed to do — and the FCC is looking into it.
Wait, is Tom Bergeron being brought back to Dancing with the Stars? Tyra isn’t going anywhere, so I guess they’ll be co-hosts?
Stay tuned… 😏 https://t.co/OwsHRrPJwV

Tig Notaro knows you think she’s sexy AF. (And you’re not wrong.)
Vanity Fair is trying to make us feel bad about watching The Real Housewives, and I am not here for it.
A couple of weeks ago, powerful producer Scott Rudin was exposed in a Hollywood Reporter as being a violent, unhinged monster by those who have worked for him. He smashed a computer monitor on an assistant’s hand, he threw a potato at another assistant (and then ordered the assistant to get him another potato), he fired one assistant for not dropping out of college so as to work for him full-time, he fired another assistant because she had to exercise from 5:30-6 a.m. to control her diabetes, and he would strip producing credits from people’s IMDB pages if they quit or upset him. It’s a lot! And I didn’t originally include it in this section because it wasn’t about using his power to sexually abuse people. I’ve since decided that abuse is abuse and so here we are. Anyway, Rudin has since announced that he will be “stepping back” from his film, streaming, and Broadway projects, as if that is punishment enough for his terror and abuse.

Gianna Hammer, a former contestant on Are You the One?, has accused a fellow contestant of drugging and assaulting her, and the producers pressuring her to allow them to keep him on, arguing that “it would be a lot to send him back.” MTV has paused production on the season currently filming to investigate.
A Change.org petition has been launched asking that Netflix cancel Colton Underwood’s upcoming series. “Cassie [Underwood’s ex-girlfriend] is a victim of Colton’s abuse, and he does not deserve a platform in any way,” the petition reads. “Regardless of his sexuality, Colton should not be given a platform as a result of his abusive, manipulative, and dangerous behavior.”
Jake Paul is denying the sexual assault allegations against him, pointing out that he has … a mother? Gross.

Pete Davidson called Jake Paul out on the story to his face and later called Paul a “piece of shit,” and yo, he’s not wrong.
Chet Hanks’s ex-girlfriend for abusing her and … wait … I know this isn’t the biggest part of this story, but Chet Hanks lives in SUGAR LAND, TX? The hell?
Mariel Hemingway says Manhattan could never come out today. No? Why not? Because it’s gross and romanticizes statutory rape?
We have a real problem with vaccine hesitancy in this country. Republican pollster Frank Luntz did another focus group with conservatives who are reluctant to receive the vaccine, and unlike the focus group he did five weeks ago, this group was unmoved by the information they learned from experts and doctors. It looks like we have a floor of about 30% of the population who is just going to refuse to be vaccinated, leaving us more vulnerable and stretching out the length of time we have to deal with this virus. And the sad irony is that the more we sound the alarm about this group refusing the vaccine, the more it entrenches them into their position. The one person who could actually help with the situation refuses to, frustrating his own former administration members who are irritated that he continues to take credit for the vaccine, but won’t help with vaccinations.
NFL quarterback Patrick Mahomes gets it. Now if he would drop the whole “personal choice” bullshit, we’d be all good.
