Happy early December, y’all! I hope you have a fun weekend ahead. ICYMI, we ran our annual Tartan post this week!

This news was a relief, and this is an interesting piece: Brittney Griner’s fierce WNBA family threw everything it had into getting her home. [USA Today]

This is upsetting news about Celine Dion. I hope she has some kind of recovery. [Lainey]

I was always gonna link to this, at Town & Country:  The Incredible Story of How Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton Began Hollywood’s Most Famous Affair.

You may have already read this, but if you haven’t, you should: My boyfriend, a writer, broke up with me because I’m a writer. [The Guardian]

This is really interesting: The Murky Path To Becoming a New York Times Best Seller. [Esquire]

Lainey has an interesting perspective on how this whole Amy Robach and TJ Holmes scandale broke.

Related: Was T.J. Holmes carrying on multiple affairs for years at ‘Good Morning America’? Drama!!! [Celebitchy]

I did wonder this: Why Is Everyone Suddenly Talking About Something Navy? (I low-key wonder if this is going to be the rumor that gets DeuxMoi sued.) [The Cut]

This is a great piece about Andor. [LA Review of Books]

At Romper:  An Ode To Kirstie Alley & Her Messy Self.

YAY! It’s time at Ask a Manager for people to talk about their wild office holiday parties.

This is nice: Jennifer Garner raves about attending ‘magical’ White House State Dinner with daughter Violet Affleck

At Vanity Fair: Ke Huy Quan’s True Hollywood Comeback. 

So interesting (and tasty): The Town That Panettone Built. [Eater]

Speaking of snackies, I swear this will be the year I make these pimento cheese crackers. [Bon Appetit]

I always love Grace’s F*ck It Gift Guide.

A fun convo on Girls of a Certain Age this week: What’s your favorite recent cheap and chic find?

A few days ago, we featured an event at SFFILM, which is a great organization! Lo and behold, said event was hosted by Fug Nationals! If you want to support their mission, you can do it here!

And, finally, we were so excited to guest star on our friend Abby Gardner’s great podcast We Have Notes this week! We talked about soap operas! (That link is to Apple podcasts but you can listen to it wherever you listen to your pods!)
