Well Fugged: Sharon Stone in Traver Rains


Some people might look upon Sharon Stone in wings, posing in front of a tree Beelzebub (Treezlebub?) hiding on a branch, and think, “Well, THIS is a piano picture. FOR ME.” Sharon Stone, however, is probably thinking, “Don’t tell, but these are usually just my Tuesday wings, and that’s not even the best Treezlebub I’ve seen this WEEK.”

Fugs and Pieces, August 21st, 2015

FRIDAAAAAAY! Thank god it’s here.  Around the internet for your reading pleasure:

– Lainey tackles the newest developments in the Archie Panjabi v. Juliana Marguiles question. It’s a very good read.

– HUGE thanks to The Stripe for including The Royal We on her list of Five Best Summer Beach Reads! (The rest of the list is ace, too.)

– I love this interview with Linda Rodin over at The New Potato. To wit: she recommends two glasses of wine a day.

– OBVIOUSLY I was always going to link to this, at Entertainment Weekly: Kelly Clarkson sings Tinder profiles on Jimmy Kimmel Live

– Also at Jimmy Kimmel and in the same vein, via Cosmo: Josh Groban Sings the Very Best (Well, Worst) of Donald Trump’s Tweets. I LOVE YOU GROBAN.

TV Insider has a really good interview with EP Stephanie Savage about Astronaut Wives Club, which is not AS CANDID as I suspect she could be but which gives you a sense of some of the changes they made in the show, and some of their reasoning behind a lot of their decision making. It’s interesting; she’s obviously super-smart, and this was a really ambitious undertaking. I’d love to hear, five years from now, the really unvarnished experience of making that show.

Let Book Riot introduce you to the Mitford Sisters in this week’s Reading Pathways.

GQ’s interview with Stephen Colbert is wonderful, and moving, and smart. “[T]he thing I’ve been thinking about the most since my time with Colbert is loss. The losses he’s experienced in his life, yes, but really the meaning we all make of our losses. Deaths of loved ones, the phases of our children’s lives hurtling by, jobs and relationships we never imagined would end. All of it. Among other things, our lives are compendiums of loss and change and what we make of it. I’ve never met anyone who’s faced that reality more meaningfully than Stephen Colbert. I suppose, more than anything, that’s what this story is about.”

– This is interesting, on Pajiba: The Life of Marvel Marketing And The Death of Marvel Story Telling

– Here’s a headline for you, via Smithsonian: The Strange Saga of George Washington’s Bedpan

– It’s Read-A-Romance Month! I loved this post by Lauren Willig (I also love her Pink Carnation series).

Elle chatted with Amy Schumer’s stylist. Interestingly, she was also the costume designer for Trainwreck (and a variety of other films).

– Did you hear? Brian Austin Green is no longer so precious to Megan Fox. (Lainey)

– Over at The Guardian: “The Wembley to Soweto Foundation helps disadvantaged young photographers reach their potential. At last year’s World Cup in Brazil, former trainees from Soweto and London’s East End went to the favelas and taught young Brazilian kids the art of photography. Now, they’ve returned to London and taken portraits of their heroes for a new show.” Said heroes involve Idris Elba and Alan Rickman. The pictures are great — the one of Judi Dench is as good as any celeb portrait I’ve seen.

Julianne Hough’s new fiance is VERY cute. (Celebitchy)

Should we all be drinking shrubs? (Cup of Jo)

Look at David Beckham sleeping. LOOK AT HIM! (Grazia)

Royals Round-Up, August 21st 2015

Soon — SO SOON! — summer will be over for the royals of the world and Royals Round-Up will once again be fat and happy. This week, though, we’ve got a special Blue Suit Club appearance from Crown Prince Haakon, and some nice golfing form from Crown Prince Frederik, and a good hat on Sophie Wessex, so all is not yet lost.



More Recent Fugs and Fabs: Emily Ratajkowski

As a performer or a celebrity in general I have no feelings about Emily Rataj here, but THANK YOU, SWEET PRINCESS, for enlivening the August red-carpet doldrums.

Well Played: Lady Gaga on “American Horror Story: Hotel”


The captions all say this is Gaga on the set. My first thought was, “Yeah, but is she in costume, or is that just how she showed up?” Because either seems true.

Fugs and Fabs: The Rest of the “She’s Funny That Way” Premiere

AWESOME: This had been up for two and a half hours before I realized I forgot to write an intro. Well, what could I have said that’s better than WORDS anyway?
