Happy almost American Thanksgiving! I hope you have something fun planned this weekend.
From Elie Mystal at The Nation: Kyle Rittenhouse Has Gotten Away With Murder—as Predicted.
The ongoing story about missing Chinese tennis star Peng Shuai is disturbing, to say the least. [NY Mag]
This story at Texas Monthly is an absolutely wiiiiiiiiiiiiild ride and I hope Margot Robbie has optioned it, and I also hope it’s being turned into a book: “In ‘the trial of the century,’ a Houston socialite was accused of plotting her husband’s murder—and of having an affair with her nephew. But Candace Mossler was only getting started.”
Really interesting (and appetizing!): For Many Members of the Arab American Diaspora, Mansaf Offers a Taste of Home. [NYT Magazine]
Lainey says it’s Lizzy Caplan week and I am here for this. (And not just because Lizzy Caplan is one of those celebs who never comes out to stuff unless she is professionally obligated to but always looks great, which means I feel consistently a little deprived of Lizzy Caplan!)
CELEB BREAKUP KLAXON: Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, surprising very few, have officially closed up relationship shop. Relationshop? [Lainey]
In other relationship news, I am weirdly into this couple and I shall not be taking questions: Pete Davidson spent his 28th b-day in Palm Springs with Kim Kardashian (and Flava Flav?!!). [Celebitchy]
This is fun: Big Shoulders and Lots of Vintage: How Lady Gaga Got Dressed for House of Gucci. [Vogue]
I WILL do as requested here: Watch J.Lo Bring Back the Mid-Aughts Rom Com in the Trailer for ‘Marry Me.’ [Pajiba]
Really interesting, at Publisher’s Weekly: Ghostwriters Come Out of the Shadows.
Fascinating, at The Conversation: How the Satanic Temple is using ‘abortion rituals’ to claim religious liberty against the Texas’ ‘heartbeat bill’. I ran across this piece via Hitha Palepu’s newsletter, 5 Smart Reads, which I think you will really enjoy if you like Fugs & Pieces.
At Socialite Life, ENJOY: Jamie Dornan singing ‘Rainbow Connection’ as Kermit the Frog is what we didn’t know we needed.
This seems true: A Gravy Fountain Would Make Your Life So Much Better. [Food & Wine]
A great interview with J. Smith-Cameron at The New Yorker.
