Week That Was (Dec 3 – Dec 10)

BUCKLE UP, IT WAS A *WEEK* AND THE DISAPPOINTMENT WAS *REAL*. JK Rowling JK devastated me and destroyed a part of my fantasyland happy universe when she finally spoke out about Johnny Depp’s controversial casting in Fantastic Beasts 2…and defended him AND director David Yates’ casting decision. Within her statement, she also manipulated and picked apart¬†Amber Heard and Johnny Depp‘s joint statement following their divorce to such an extent that she completely misrepresented the message it actually communicated. Which Amber angrily responded to on Instagram. Of course, the bits JK lifted from…

Week That Was (Nov 4 – Nov 11)

Hmmm what happened this week in the land of pop culture? The Hollywood rapist list grows, the maybe-final-ep of UNHhhh landed on my birthday (bittersweet), and Britney Spears is an artist now. You know, the usual. First off, some more names to add to the list of gross abusers in LaLa Land. Ed Westwick has now been accused by two women of rape, Charlie Sheen was probably confirmed as the perpetrator of a long-existing rumour that he was the king of a pedo ring that preyed on young boys in Hollywood, Louis CK was outed (AGAIN) as…

Week That Was (Oct 28 – Nov 3)

Another week, another slew of gross men in Hollywood who have been revealed as abusers. Really keen for the focus to eventually shift onto literally every other industry of all time as well as this is NOT unique to LaLa Land. Also Halloween happened and there mayyyy have been some celeb romantic reconciliations coz…’tis the season I guess? The holiday season? Where people remember that they love each other and forget all the awful things about the other person that made them end their relationship. SEEMS HEALTHY. Dustin Hoffman disappointed a loooooot of people when news hit…

Week That Was (Sept 30 – Oct 6)

Full disclosure – I totally forgot about wrapping up the week this week. When I wracked my brain to update y’all on the big pop culture news that happened, I realised no big pop culture news happened. A tragedy happened, and America still has guns. I guessed they missed the memo that banning guns tends to end mass shootings and murder. Then again, if Sandy Hook didn’t change anything in the US, nothing will. But I’m just here for the celebs. Eh. But really, we all need our bright shining lights of joy to…

Week That Was (Sept 16 – Sept 22)

Obviously LOTS HAS HAPPENED this week, because, Emmys. So you’re mostly covered heading into the weekend. But there’s more where that came from. James Corden took the Jimmy Fallon route of how to approach anyone connected with the vile bigoted hateful dangerous Trump organisation and thought it was be *cute* to mack on with Sean Spicer at one of the Emmys after party. Twat. He really should’ve thought twice about it too, because look how well it went for Fallon. Also apparently Spicer’s appearance was Stephen Colbert’s idea. Even Colbert…

The Week That Was (Sept 8 – Sept 15)

Just a quickie this week because we are heading into EMMYS WEEKEND! Aka one of the greatest weekends of the year. The Emmys are great because they’re a lot looser than the Oscars, but they’re also notoriously disappointing with their winners. Honestly if Veep or The Crown win anything else this year I’ll lose my damn mind. Anyway. It’s going to be a big week here at aphroisms because Survivor is heading to 3 nights (OMG) AND there’ll be all the red carpet and awards show shenanigans to cover. I…

The Week That Was (July 22 – 28)

Okay, so I guess it was really not a massive week in celeb “gossip” this week, so that’s kinda sad. But you know what else is more sad? Trump started another overwhelmingly offensive dumpster fire on Twitter that made a whole lot of people feel like garbage and was probably only said to distract us from another awful thing he is doing, so that’s worrying. PLUS, on a totally inferior level, I have a sore throat that actually sounds incredibly sexy-husky right now, and I like it so much better than my normal…

The Week That Was (July 8 – July 14)

Amazingly, it’s already been another week since my last rundown (lol it was Tuesday) so I’m sure you have been GAGGING for some more snappy gossipy updates. And there have been MANY. Join me. And click the links for more info if you’re dead keen. UPDATE: THEY’RE HEREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! It’s official. The Queen herself has blessed. I’m so happy. And emotional. Did I mention happy? Because I am. What a way to end a Friday and head into the weekend! Thank you Bey! Real Housewives of the OC started…

The Week That Was (July 1-7)

Gossip enthusiast? Article skimmer? Pop culture casual dater (you dip in every now and then but don’t get too ‘deep’)? If you ever find yourself struggling for water-cooler chat while the young people around you bemuse you when they say names you can’t even decipher and you actively seek out TV spoilers without bothering to watch the latest hyped series (that the entire fucking world is seemingly watching simultaneously), so you can have a fucking sound-byte to contribute to awkward social situations then BOY, do I have an update for you! Before…
