Weekly Round Up – April 25th, 2016

LOTS to talk about today. If you missed it, I completely embarrassed myself on WWHL last night. As Dave said “that was literally Andy’s worst call.” So there’s that. But a lot of other things have happened. Beyoncé made some good Lemonade, Kelly Ripa is pissed, George continues to slay on the cuteness front. Let’s dig in!

Looks like Beyoncé is Jay-Z’s 100th Problem

Oye- that is NOT an original joke. But alas, it’s a goodie. Beyoncé dropped Lemonade over the weekend with a special on HBO. Of course she dropped the album on Tidal…which – that’s still a thing? I did not watch or listen but one thing is clear from this album: Jay-Z DEFINITELY cheated on B. With lines like “You can taste the dishonesty/It’s all over your breath” and “Tonight I regret the night I put that ring on”, I think the writing is on the wall. Twitter had a lot of fun with it:

Rumor have spread for years that Jay-Z has been unfaithful for years, culminating in the amazing elevator fight with B’s sister, Solange. Let’s revisit:

It is VERY scary how calm B is during that whole thing. This Twitter user summed it up best,

I was listening to Elvis Duran this morning and Charlemagne from The Breakfast Club show was on and he said women need to take a page out Beyoncé’s book and forgive their men when they cheat. His logic was that women should all be as strong as B. Ummmm…no thank you. First of all, forgiving someone for cheating is a very personal decision. And second, be real here – Beyoncé KNOWS that she is much stronger with Jay by her side than alone. Those two work as an empire but I’m not sure apart they would be nearly as successful. She knows it. So she will stay with him but destroy him via her new album in the meantime. A lot more drama about Rachel Roy being the other woman. You can read more here. But the best part is the Beyhive mistaking Rachael Ray for Rachel Roy.

Kelly Ripa is NOT Impressed


So Kelly Ripa has been killing it on Live! for 16 years – first as a co-host to Regis Philbin and then as the lead on the show with Michael Strahan. Well Strahan has dabbled in Good Morning America hosting duties for the last two years and after only four years on the show, he announced he was out to become an anchor on GMA. The problem? He told Kelly about 5 minutes before the press release went out. Kelly feels trés betrayed, especially because she fought to get him on the show. And also, where are her awesome opportunities? Maybe she’s turned them down out of loyalty to the show, but Michael show-hopping so quickly is not a good look. Allegedly, there’s no love lost between the co-hosts and this didn’t help. Kelly was like, I’m out too…for a few days to go to the Turks and Caicos and drown my tears in daiquiris. She’ll be back tomorrow but the damage is done. On another weird note though, it came out that Kelly hasn’t talked to Regis since he stepped down five years ago, which sounds like maybe she’s not that great either. SO MUCH DRAMA FOR SUCH A BENIGN MORNING SHOW!! I vote Anderson Cooper gets the co-host spot.

I Like Literally Died on Friday

George…in PJs…and a robe…and slippers…kicking it with President Obama. I can’t even. He is just the best ever. He got to stay up 15 minutes late for the meeting and you know he was like “IN YOUR FACE, CHARLOTTE”. Also, this was our first glimpse inside Kate and Will’s private residence at Kensington and I obviously blew up all the pictures to get a better look at the piano photos. A lot of solo shots of Kate and definitely a framer of this iconic photo:


TEARS. P.S. this week marks the FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY of the royal wedding. I will do a walk down memory lane. That was truly the most special day, right Jules and Sarah? (BFF Jules, not awful Jules from RHONY)

Speaking of Royals…

There’s a new royal babe! Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia of Sweden had a baby boy last week. Prince Alexander Erik Hubertus Bertil, Duke of Sodermanland was born on April 19th and is predictably adorable:

Congrats you two! The Swedish royals are pretty awesome.

Other Baby News

Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are proud parents to new baby girl, Luna Simone. That’s a really cute name.


As a Snapchat lover myself, mad respect for the adorable picture. She was criticized for going out to dinner with John so soon after the birth, which – leave her alone. (But also, she totally did it for attention.) I mean… does this look like someone who just wanted a quick hour away from her child with little fanfare?


More Cute George Pictures

Happy Belated Birthday to the Queen! 90 years old! WOW! To commemorate, the Royal Mail released this new stamp and it is too much:

This is beyond cute. HE IS SUCH A LITTLE CHARMER. I want to squeeze him. I saw my old professor last week who happens to be British and I told him how I wish she was my Queen, I think I’d be a fantastic subject. And he was disturbed because didn’t my country fight to get out from under the monarchy, but like, no one asked me.

Other Bravo Stuff

RHOBH was a SNOOZE this season. Blah blah blah lyme disease. But this reunion is ROCKING. Lisa Rinna dropped the bombshell that Lisa Vanderpump said “there goes our story line” when Harry Hamlin said to leave Yolanda and her illness alone. Yo stormed off set. Can’t wait to watch part 2! Also, Shahs and Southern Charm continue to be awesome. RH of Dallas does not. Bravo really dropped the ball with these new cities. Back to the drawing board!

I’ll have my RHONY recap up later this week and the Kate/Will wedding montage. And I NEED to rank Southern Charm. I’ll see if I can fit that in. Happy Monday!
