For the people

While Meghan‘s pals Priyanka Chopra, Abigail Spencer and Serena Williams got a lot of attention during the royal wedding, one of the Duchess’s other pals, Janina Gavankar, should’ve gotten a lot more love (but since the actress never confirmed she was attending, she was often described by reporters around the world as “mysterious woman in orange”). Come on, did you see her dress and how striking she was in it? Dayum.

Girlfriend looked amazing and the smile on her face showed just how happy she was for her friend. And Gavankar revealed just how happy she and the other wedding guests were — especially when many of them inside St George’s Chapel were caught laughing during the ceremony.

“One thing that made many of us giggle was that we could hear the wonderful people outside,” Gavankar told Town & Country. “When the vows were happening, they would cheer, and we could hear them. It was a very quiet chapel. We all followed the Queen‘s lead. But we could hear everyone cheer and it was so heartwarming. Really, it filled our hearts.”

As for the big day, Gavankar said, “I walked away feeling so confident that these two will put their combined power into the world for good. They did it apart. They’ve done it apart their entire lives. Imagine what they can do together.”

Which is exactly what we all can’t wait for. As for what she hopes for them, it’s probably never going to happen but, hey, a friend can dream, right? “I hope for as much privacy as possible. As much as the world will allow them, I hope for more. Truly.” So in case you’re wondering what to give the new royal couple who seemingly has everything? Privacy. How nice for them would that be?

Morgan Freeman denies all the sexual harassment claims against him

Following reports of sexual harassment from eight women, Morgan Freeman released a second statement on Friday evening, once again denying allegations CNN published in an investigative report on Thursday.

His first was a brief apology, saying, “Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows I am not someone who would intentionally offend or knowingly make anyone feel uneasy. I apologize to anyone who felt uncomfortable or disrespected — that was never my intent.”

The second statement, however, was lengthy.

“I am devastated that 80 years of my life is at risk of being undermined, in the blink of an eye, by Thursday’s media reports,” read his statement. “All victims of assault and harassment deserve to be heard. And we need to listen to them. But it is not right to equate horrific incidents of sexual assault with misplaced compliments or humor. I admit that I am someone who feels a need to try to make women—and men—feel appreciated and at ease around me. As a part of that, I would often try to joke with and compliment women, in what I thought was a light-hearted and humorous way. Clearly I was not always coming across the way I intended. And that is why I apologized Thursday and will continue to apologize to anyone I might have upset, however unintentionally.”

He continued: “But I also want to be clear: I did not create unsafe work environments. I did not assault women. I did not offer employment or advancement in exchange for sex. Any suggestion that I did so is completely false.”

Hmm, but making women — and men, he so clearly points out — uncomfortable, whether it’s by saying things or TOUCHING THEM, is not OK. Freeman’s behaviour might not be Harvey Weinstein-level but it’s still not cool. And immediate action has already begun.

SAG-AFTRA, which gave Freeman their Lifetime Achievement Award earlier this year, is now investigating if there are “corrective actions” they should be looking at. And the plan for Freeman to be the voice of Vancouver’s public transit system has been cancelled. Here we go. Hell, they might already have a replacement lined up.

Kim is defending Kanye once again

Kim Kardashian is engaged in a war of words with a man who accused her husband, Kanye West, of abandoning Chicago. The city, not their daughter.

The feud began on Saturday rapper when Rhymefest tweeted at Drake — who just released something of a Kanye diss track on Friday — for help, saying that Kanye had “abandoned” the city of Chicago and his non-profit organization, Donda’s House, which helps bring arts to disadvantaged youth and is named after his beloved late mother Donda West.

After Donda’s House’s Twitter was flooded with questions, the organization released a statement, asking that in light of Kanye’s recent inflammatory remarks and subsequent boycotts of the rapper, that patrons and supporters “not penalize or throw away their support, respect or advocacy” for the organization. The statement added that they were “unable to secure the financial support of Kanye despite multiple attempts and despite those early conversations about his plan of support and advocacy of the youth in our programs.”

That’s when Kim jumped in, because you don’t mess with her man, who will speak so publicly about other things but not defend himself.

Rhymefest immediately responded with a full statement of his own, alluding to recent conversations with West.

The disagreement inspired Rhymefest and those running Donda’s House to no longer operate under the name of Kanye’s mother, with the nonprofit continuing to “support youth in our future endeavors” while encouraging Kardashian and West “to indeed pick up the baton of service.”

That inspired Kim to break it down. Again.

The question is, when will Kim’s man weigh in on all this? Kanye’s a big boy with lots of opinions. We’d sure love to hear his thoughts.

Sesame Street creators are suing Melissa McCarthy’s new movie

Melissa McCarthy’s new comedy is getting sued — by Sesame Street. That’s right, The Happytime Murders is super-R-rated raunchiness and definitely only for grown-ups, and all the puppets share an obvious connection to the children’s show, so much so that Brian Henson, son of Jim Henson, believes it will cause “irreparable injury” to the show’s name. It probably doesn’t help that the movie’s tagline is “no Sesame, All Street.”

While Sesame Street‘s creators are arguing they built the show into a cultural phenomenon over the past half a century, solidifying a “reputation for wholesome educational programming,” the trailer alone, which depicts “explicit, profane, drug-using, misogynistic, violent, copulating, and even ejaculating puppets,” could undo it all.

STX Entertainment, the film’s production company, issued a statement of rebuttal from Fred Esq., an actual puppet lawyer, which read, “STX loved the idea of working closely with Brian Henson and the Jim Henson Company to tell the untold story of the active lives of Henson puppets when they’re not performing in front of children.”

It continued: “Happytime Murders is the happy result of that collaboration and we’re incredibly pleased with the early reaction to the film and how well the trailer has been received by its intended audience. While we’re disappointed that Sesame Street does not share in the fun, we are confident in our legal position. We look forward to introducing adult moviegoers to our adorably unapologetic characters this summer.”

Craziest lawsuit ever. But, come on. If you haven’t seen the trailer, here’s the extra-filthy one. Headphones on, people.
