Between dealing with kids, dealing with work, and dealing with take your kids to work day, you may have missed some of the most insane things celebrities did this week. Well, have no fear — because Kashmere is here with his finger on the pulse and his eyes on every Instagram account of anyone worth talking about. From Oscar winners to reality TV royalty, to even actually royalty; here are the craziest stories going on this week. Welcome to our newest series, “Did You Hear? With Kashmere!”
Kashmere (also known as Danny Murphy) is a comedian, writer, and pop culture connoisseur (despite not really knowing how to spell connoisseur). He currently writes for Betches and Marie Claire and has also been featured in Glamour, Seventeen and Town & Country. When he’s not drinking red wine or iced coffee while watching Bravo, he’s performing around New York and hosting PASS THE AUX at The Stonewall Inn and DO I SEND IT? at Branded Saloon. Follow his fake reality show AKA his Instagram stories, @kashmeredanny.
Rihanna May Be Getting Married!?Bad Girl Ri Ri has been getting her fans antsy with the potential promise of new music soon, after taking a slight singing hiatus to make lingerie, makeup and probably a few joints. While there’s no official tease of a new single, there is a tease that the singer may no longer be single herself… She stirred this speculation up after liking an Instagram post about a theory of her getting engaged to billionaire boyfriend Hassan Jameel. See Brides.com for more.
Jussie Smollett Is Out Now!? This case has had more twists than the series of Pretty Little Liars, which if you haven’t watched, tweet me and we can set up a binge moment. From victim to conviction, we had no clue what was happening with Jussie Smollett… and now we may never will. The chargers were dropped because the prosecutors didn’t think they had a strong enough case. Now, the City of Chicago wants Jussie to pay $130K of legal fees which he is very much ‘thank u, next’-ing. Go to betches.com for more.
Lori Loughlin Breaks Silence But Stays Silent (Plus First Photo Since Scandal Released!) While preparing to potentially go to a different kind of Full House, Loughlin is attempting to stay positive while also staying silent about the college scandal tornado she found herself in the middle of. I guess she took the SAT tip to heart: if you don’t know the answer, leave it blank. Side note, WHO IS Felicity Huffman’s publicist? They have worked overtime to completely remove her name from the conversation around this story. Check out the unhappy couple’s first photo on yahoo and read more over on Vulture.
Jada Pickett Smith Unfollows Kardashian Clan On InstagramAfter hosting basically the after show for the lives of the Kardashians with her Red Table Talk, Jada Pickett Smith seems to be moving on from the family. She unfollowed Kris, Khloe and Kim all on Instagram — we’re guessing she was tired of seeing their face and already used all their promo codes for fitness tea. TMZ broke this one.
Jameela Jamil VS Kardashian Heats Up Jameela Jamill wants the world to be a better place, or we should say a more Good Place. She feels this starts with body positivity and holding celebrities accountable for what they promote — i.e. All of those detox teas that cost a lot of money and just make you throw up for days. Her major enemy with all of this? The Kardashians, who have been promoters of those for years now. Jameela regularly comments on their Instagram posts about their deals with these tea brands, and now the Kardashians clapped back saying it’s a good way for moms to make money and be with their kids. Kim, your sex taped paid for your house, you don’t need to sell tea. Cosmo has the full coverage.
Joe Biden Becomes Joe Bye-din? One of the frontrunners of the 2020 election before even announcing he was going to run, Joe Biden seemed like the man of the year… until now. Lucy Flores, who was a Nevada State Assembly, has come out and said that Joe Biden inappropriately went behind her, put his hands on her shoulders and kissed her head. Biden says he doesn’t remember this, and Elizabeth Warren immediately came to Flores’ defense. We’re not sure what this could mean for Joe Biden but if it ain’t no lie… then it’s most likely he’ll be Bye Bye Bi-den. Details over at TMZ.
Omg, There’s Royal Drama That Doesn’t Involve Meghan Markle? Okay. This one is hard for me to understand, because I don’t understand anything British people ever say. Just ask anyone I tried to hit on while I was studying abroad: they’d say ‘you’re not my type,’ and I’d reply ‘I love a fall wedding.’ BUT this I am taking out my Rosetta Stone to attempt to translate: because allegedly, Will and Kate are Plus…. Another mate? That’s right. Apparently, their marriage has been on the rocks for some time and Will has been hanging out with Rose Hanbury, the Marchioness of Cholmondeley. Which sounds like something Will could catch if he keeps messing around with women, but hopefully this is just a rumor and he doesn’t have to be tested. Meghan Markle, we’re happy you can finally have a night off. More on that at The Cut.
And that’s all I heard this week, but both my ears and my bottle of wine are open, so start emotionally preparing for next weeks round up and of course — if you see something, say something, and tweet me at @kashmeredanny.
