Before we get started with TV nonsense, I just want to acknowledge there has been yet another horrible mass shooting in this country. Last night in Maine, a man shot and killed at least 18 people, injuring many others, and he’s still on the run. Despite the fact that this is the 10th deadliest mass shooting in our country’s history, and despite the fact that a majority of Americans want more restrictive background checks and red flag laws, this tragedy will change nothing. Keep the victims and their families in your thoughts.
Here’s A BUNCH OF TV News
Henry Winkler has ALSO released a memoir, but there are no Tony Danza love triangles, unfortunately. He does open up about his struggle with dyslexia, and how humiliating it was for him, especially during table reads. And now I just want to give The Fonz a big hug.
Sounds like The White Lotus, season three, will be filmed in Thailand — but was almost set in Japan. Japan just wasn’t willing to pay them big bucks.
The head of Great American Family says that Candace Cameron Bure is “not speaking on behalf of Great American Media,” but do not hold your breath waiting for a gay holiday movie anytime soon.
Hasan Minhaj has responded to The New Yorker story about him that tanked his chance to host The Daily Show, and suggests that The New Yorker selectively excluded emails that proved he wasn’t lying about his experiences, merely embellishing them. The situation is nuanced, and perhaps if he were just another comedian, this wouldn’t be so messy, but he’s not — he was the host of one comedy/news show and up to be the host of another. He’s not a journalist and can’t be held up to those rigorous standards, but he’s not just another stand-up comedian, either. Anyway.
Kyle Richards was pretty forthcoming about her separation from Mauricio on last night’s Watch What Happens Live!
LOL, Former President Fraudster was fined $10,000 for violating his gag order by the judge in his civil fraud case yesterday (this on top of the $5,000 he was fined last week), and in the middle of the trial, he stormed out of the courtroom because the case wasn’t going his way. He’s such a fucking baby.
