    Even now, some parents let their teenagers use Uber or similar services. Still, I agree it's most likely that Jack is traveling with one or more other people.

    Anna Camp and Skylar Astin from the Pitch Perfect series also announced yesterday that they were separating. I figure everyone is trying to dump split news during Easter, because entertainment shows/outlets usually start holiday weekends early. They have to scramble to cover a breaking celebrity story now, compared to news that first hits on, say, a Tuesday morning with a full staff. Thanksgiving is another time when a glut of star splits are announced, with the hope of (relatively) slipping under the fan/media radar.

    Michelle Williams has talked about how she struggled at the time with her character not really being a fan favorite. https://ew.com/tv/2018/04/02/dawsons-creek-reunion-michelle-williams-jen-reaction/ In the early years, there was way more hype about Katie Holmes as the next big thing and as the pretty one, compared to Michelle. By 2004, much of that may have subsided in the media but that doesn't necessarily change how Michelle felt about herself. I don't remember her making any best dressed lists before the awards season for Brokeback Mountain. I understand how she wouldn't have viewed herself as the glamorous type circa 2004, compared to her peers. I watch Dancing with the Stars and some of the claims to fame are dubious but often IMO the viewers with the, "I've never heard of them," complaints have clearly checked out of noticing pop culture sometime in the 1980s, and I guess expect the broader world to cater to their limited tastes and essentially stop turning with them. I always want to say, "Just because you stopped paying attention, doesn't mean that things stopped happening." Michelle Williams has mostly stuck to independent movies in the last decade and has been nominated for three Oscars, a Tony and won a Golden Globe since 2008. She got unwittingly embroiled in an equal pay controversy when she made All the Money in the World and has appeared in more mainstream studio films in the last two years, The Greatest Showman, I Feel Pretty and Venom. She's starring as Gwen Verdon in the limited series Fosse/Verdon that began airing earlier this month. I could have done this post with links to Michelle Williams' pages on IMDb and Wikipedia, but it's so easy these days to look things up for yourself if you really want to learn more. I suppose it's even easier for people to throw out some variation of, "I don't know her," and actually think that's a relevant, worthwhile or clever line of attack on a celebrity. When, really, they are saying so much about themselves, none of it being particularly flattering.

    In the episode thread, a poster suggested that "they" could possibly refer to a solo, non-binary Jack.

    I wonder how close it will get to a $300 million opening weekend. It will be playing on so many screens but the 3 hour run time will hold back the number of showings.

    People has never presented itself as a serious news magazine, so it's not surprising that they are treating a cover about a famous person in trouble like a celebrity story (one reason why you don't see a big picture of Mossimo as well). And obviously, Lori Loughlin did not participate in this article-not directly anyway, but they probably have sources close to her. Though any celebrity magazine can say they have a "source", who knows if they're ever actually real (granted, People is probably better about that than most entertainment/gossip outlets).

    They weren't married but this happened with Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone for one of their breakups: Better to announce a split so that the subject of your ex-partner isn't brought up in an awkward way (by interviewers, casual acquaintances, fans, etc), or people come to terrible conclusions about your behavior as a person purportedly in a relationship. It hasn't happened to me personally, but even in my boring civilian life my mom/uncles/aunts who don't do any sort of social media have had some very cringeworthy moments when catching up with old work/classmates/former church members, making chitchat and inquiring about someone's spouse, only to learn that oops, it's been over for a year or two!

    The Wendy Williams Show

    I think I understand Wendy's line of thinking, even if I don't agree with it. Given what I've seen of Wendy's opinions about gender dynamics and relationships, she seems like the sort of woman who figures that men feel inherently emasculated by wives who make more money/have bigger careers than them. So, she could rationalize Kevin's cheating if it were with some "civilian" (non-famous) woman because in her mind, he would be drawn to her out of some innate need for an ego boost that he can't get from his marriage. However, if he cheated with some other well-known TV personality, for example, Wendy would take it more personally and find it harder to forgive. It would mean his infidelity isn't about his desire to feel "manly" and "needed" in the face of having a richer/more powerful wife, which she found excusable, but that he doesn't want her anymore, yet some other big-time morning show anchor or host of The View (for example) was fulfilling his needs just fine. It's the same line of thinking that causes some women to excuse it if their man cheats with someone much younger and not in their social circle/class, but not if it's a woman from the neighborhood, older, less attractive, etc. * "12 Years a Side Chick", Charlamagne, you are not right for that! He sounds so happy for her, I hope they can be friends again. * The Friday show taped Thursday afternoon, maybe just as the divorce news broke? So I doubt the in-show audience knew yet since you usually don't have access to cell phones. Wendy will probably at least mention it on Monday's show, when she can walk out to a lengthy, thundering ovation first.

    True, but Aunt Becky was also caught and is acting like the courthouse is a red carpet. At least this group has sense enough to appear contrite. Speaking of which: https://people.com/style/olivia-jade-trademark-application-approved-fix-punctuation/

    Get Out wasn't released as an Oscar movie but became one as the year went on. It seemed to grow on critics as the months went by (comparing the initial reviews to its placement on year-end lists), but I don't think it would have had the same Oscars success without such strong box office. Traditional awards bait doesn't need to make $100-200 million to get nominations and wins, but movies in less Oscar friendly genres have to do more to get considered. Unfair, but often the way it is. ITA that The Best of Enemies fits the profile of classic busted Oscar bait given its subject matter/reviews/release date. Taraji and Sam Rockwell were announced to star back in June 2015 and it started filming in May 2017. This isn't exactly one that they rushed out to theaters: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Best_of_Enemies_(2019_film)
