If you have $23 million laying around, you can live like Kendall Roy. (What is kinda cool is that it’s in the Woolworth Building, which I guess I didn’t realize is now residential.) And while we’re on the topic of Succession, I really enjoyed the overthinking going on in this piece about that Nero and Sporus conversation in this week’s episode.
Here is your first look at some of the First Ladies in the upcoming Showtime series, The First Lady:
General Mills is putting out limited-edition Stranger Things cereal boxes, and they’re kinda cool?
Sarah Jessica Parker is a Sex and the City hoarder, apparently.
Quincy Jones bullied Will Smith into doing The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.
LOL, Eli Manning demonstrated the double bird he used to receive from Philadelphia Eagles fans on ESPN 2’s Manningcast back in September, and three people took time out of their lives to write to the FCC to complain.

It has been confirmed that Ingo Rademacher has left General Hospital and his last day on the soap will be November 22. He reportedly refused to be vaccinated, which is likely the reason he was cut from the soap, not the transphobic post he shared on Instagram, though that didn’t do him any favors.
Dave Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, which has long been criticized for promoting rape culture, has, shockingly, been accused of sexual misconduct by at least two women.

In response, Portnoy posted a video claiming that he’s a victim of cancel culture, and that one of the women accusing him of rape actually enjoyed it. Cool defense, dude. Can’t imagine why your lawyer discouraged you from doing this.
Barstool Sports Dave Portnoy released a video today in response to new story alleging sex abuse. He said his lawyer advised him not to, and I see why. He said maybe he was set up because he likes Trump, or goes on Tucker, or used to tell rape jokes, or attends porn conventions. pic.twitter.com/TQVmGUEXJm

Rapper Yella Beezy was arrested for sexual assault and weapons charges.
Sarah Jessica Parker is sick of your misogynistic comments about her and the Sex and the City cast.
Jamie Spears filed a request last week to be removed from the Britney conservatorship immediately, while Britney’s mother, Lynne, filed a request for $660,000 in legal fees from the estate. This comes just as Britney accused her mother of masterminding the concept of the conservatorship in the first place.
