The Royal Family is worried that ‘The Crown’ is going to make King Charles look like an asshole (and they should be because he was)

Fuck your black shoe:

That’s a fucking black shoe from aww

Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News

Before we get started, keep Western Florida in your thoughts as Hurricane Ian is headed straight for them. It looks like a rough storm with a possible strong storm surge of 8-12 feet. All filming has been shut down in the Tampa region.

Another House of the Dragon executive producer, Jocelyn Diaz, is not returning for the second season. What is going on over there? The show is a hit — why mess with what works?

Industry is just going to pretend they’ve been renewed by HBO until they are. (And three months ago, I’d confidently say they will be — but that was before the Warner Bros. Discovery days …)

Buckingham Palace is really worried that The Crown is going to make now King Charles not look great, but only because it’s going to cover his divorce from Diana. The royals have asked that Netflix put a disclaimer on the show claiming it is a “drama, not a documentary.” Honestly, it’s pretty rough timing for King Charles to have this particular part of the story told just as people were starting to warm up to him (a little).

Kelly Ripa has written a book which came out today. In it, she provides the names of all of her favorite Botox providers (good for her for being honest). And in an upcoming People Magazine interview to promote the book, she talked about how the early days with Regis were rough. WHO’S LAUGHING NOW, REGIS?

There’s an unauthorized biography of Anthony Bourdain about to come out that claims some fairly explosive things about his private life, and his family and friends are furious.

Netflix has settled its lawsuit with the unofficial Bridgerton musical folks.

Lucille, Negan’s infamous bat on The Walking Dead, is going up for auction, you sickos.

The producer of Jeopardy! wants to create a pro-level version of the show. Which I thought they already had? With the Tournament of Champions?

Caleb McLaughlin, who plays Lucas on Stranger Things, opened up about the racism he’s endured from the fans of the show, and it sucks.

TV Line argues that Dahmer is exploitative, as the victims’ families say, but it also largely sticks to the facts, and tries to expose the failures of the police department that allowed Dahmer to kill for so long.

The Boys, but make it fashion:

Get better soon, Dustin Lance Black.


Constance Wu is now saying she was sexually harassed by a senior producer on Fresh Off the Boat, but she does not name names.

Wu alleges the producer told her to send him selfies and to run all her business decisions by him before making them. She also alleges the producer coerced her to attending a Lakers game with her, during which he touched her thigh and grazed her crotch, and then became cold to her after she told him to stop. Wu writes that she and the producer stopped talking after a blow-up argument over Wu’s decision to not attend an Asian American film festival to give her time to recuperate from the non-stop schedule on the show. However, she writes she eventually forgave him so that she could move on.

She also opens up in her memoir about being raped (by a different man, not this producer), and how confusing the entire experience was.

, one of the women who accused Mario Batali of sexual assault, has come forward with her horrifying story in a new Discovery+ documentary Batali: The Fall of a Superstar Chef, which debuted last week.

A federal district court threw out former Fox News host Ed Henry’s lawsuit against the network for firing him, noting that he did not prove that the sexual harassment he was accused of didn’t happen.

Speaking of Fox News, former host Melissa Francis says they fired her remotely via teleprompter over a pay dispute. She wanted to be paid the same as her male counterparts.

DeMario Jackson, a former Bachelorette, and Bachelor in Paradise contestant, is being sued by two women for sexual assault. Jackson is denying the allegations. 

The woman who sued Tiffany Haddish and Aries Spears has dropped her lawsuit against them (~cough cough~ settlement ~cough~). Soon after the case settled, Haddish told TMZ that she “lost everything. All my gigs are gone.”

Ana De Armas knows exactly what scenes from her new NC-17 Netflix film Blonde will go viral and it grosses her out.

Former Law & Order: SVU cast member Diane Neal responded to John Oliver’s piece on the Law & Order franchises:

Yes, Armie Hammer’s ex-wife saw that documentary about him, and called it “heartbreaking.” Which is interesting considering how little sympathy she had for his victims, and how she used a fake email account to call them “crazy.”

Looks like Chris Matthews is dipping his toe into the attempted redemption tour.

Over in the NBA, Boston Celtics coach Ime Udoka was suspended after it was revealed he was having an affair with an employee that started off consensual and then wasn’t. Making matters even worse: Udoka was engaged to actress Nia Long and had just convinced her to move with her 10-year-old son across the country to be with him just days before news of this affair was set to break. HOW DARE YOU, SIR.

It should be noted that ESPN is receiving criticism over how it’s been covering this Udoka story while Brett Favre is out here stealing millions from welfare recipients in the poorest state in the country, and its crickets over at the sports network.

Phoenix Suns owner Robert Sarver says he is going to sell the Suns and the WNBA Mercury after an investigation revealed he used racist language, was abusive towards employees, and gross towards female employees in particular. Bye.

La Brea employed an intimacy coordinator for this upcoming season. Meanwhile, over at Minx, star Ophelia Lovibond spoke on how working without intimacy coordinators on a set is “unthinkable” now, comparing them to seat belts. And if you’ve seen Minx, UH YEAH, I SHOULD SAY SO.

A St. Louis TV news anchor lost his damn mind and went on a sexist rant about his co-worker on a radio show and was promptly fired. Good! But what happened here? Was he drunk?

Metal guitarist and badass Kayla Kent can shred:

But because she’s a woman, these are the kinds of comments she has to deal with on her videos. MEN: STOP IT. STOP BEING GROSS.

So, the Adam Levine mess. If you were in a coma for the past week, an Instagram model named Sumner Stroh came forward saying that she had an affair with the Maroon 5 lead singer and that he reached out to her asking if it would be cool if he and his wife named their soon-to-be-born baby “Summer.” Weird, right? And the only reason I’m including this here is that Stroh suggested that Levine took advantage of her.

“I was having an affair with a man who’s married to a Victoria’s Secret model,” Sumner said. “At the time, I was young, I was naive, and, I mean, quite frankly, I feel exploited. I wasn’t in ‘the scene’ like I am now, so I was definitely very easily manipulated.”

People attacked Stroh for trying to make herself the victim in this, claiming that she knew he was a married man, but model and actress Emily Ratajkowski had Stroh’s back:

Levine denied the affair but admitted that he had “crossed the line” with “flirtatious” messages.

Then a bunch of other women came forward with their “flirtatious messages” from Levine, and there were a lot of them.

But it’s all good, because Levine’s terrible sexts have become their own meme:

One thought on “The Royal Family is worried that ‘The Crown’ is going to make King Charles look like an asshole (and they should be because he was)

  1. I’m certainly hoping that Charles will do just fine as the King. He is intelligent and somewhat of a liberal thinker about government…not that he can do anything about it. Time to move on with the old Diana story…I’m already bored with it.
