If you’re a celebrity and/or live in big city and have the cash you can get all sorts of treatments and services. You can even hire someone to come give you an IV with vitamin water in it. I googled it and this is a real service that exists. They send registered nurses, physicians assistants or actual doctors to your location to administer it. Hangover treatments start around $200 per person. Busy Philipps brought it up on her show with Andy Samberg, who was battling a cold and bravely showed up anyway. She explained that she asked him ahead of time if he wanted an IV drip while they were filming and he said no. This seemed completely normal to her and she said she does it all the time.

Busy: I texted Andy ‘We can get an IV person to come and we can just get IVs live on the show’ he was like ‘absolutely not.’
Andy: I don’t trust an IV
Busy: I get them all the time
Andy: What’s in it?
Busy: Fluids, and then they put like Vitamin C, Vitamin B12, Gluthotamine [sic she probably meant Glutathione]
Andy: Isn’t an IV such a weird thought though? It turns your body into a tube.
Busy: Are you a person that doesn’t like to think about your own mortality and that like there’s a skeleton living inside you?
Andy: Yes. Isn’t that everyone?

After that they talked about Dr. Pimple Popper visiting the show earlier in the week and people who like to pop pimples. That’s me *raises hand.* As for getting IVs regularly, if I was rich I would do this. I would get a non medically necessary IV if I felt a cold coming on, if I got food poisoning or if I just wanted a nurse to listen to me complain about how tired I am. It’s that time of the month and I would love someone to pamper me while giving me a $250 placebo. I’ve heard of it before and didn’t realize it was so widely available. The service I found markets themselves to bridal parties and offices too. There are several companies who offer this and their photos look straight from Instagram.

Here’s the segment where they talk about this and you can see the other part here. This was right after he hosted the Critics Choice awards and he said he would not want to host the Oscars. No one wants to host the Oscars.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have date night at the opening night of Cirque Du Soleil

People were going on and on about how “brilliant” and “shrewd” it was for Queen Elizabeth II to “pass down” a certain patronage to the Duchess of Sussex. But wasn’t it just an obvious choice to give Meghan the patronage to the National Theatre? It doesn’t take some huge, shrewd leap – Meghan is a former actress, and she enjoys that scene. It’s more like “the Queen thought this would be a natural fit.” Robert Lacey – who is some kind of royal expert – had a lot to say about this particular patronage for Meghan:

Meghan Markle could use her new royal role — recently handed down from Queen Elizabeth — to land back in show business. That’s the opinion of leading royal historian Robert Lacey, who says Meghan’s new patronage of the National Theatre — among four key causes and organizations she’ll be backing as Duchess of Sussex — presents fascinating opportunities for the former Suits star.

It “is a canny and shrewd [assignment] on the Queen’s part,” Lacey, a consultant for the Netflix smash The Crown, says in this week’s issue of PEOPLE. “If Meghan is ever missing the excitement of acting, this will put her back in touch with show business in a very creative way. It is tailor-made for her and she will throw herself into it.”

He believes the royal mom-to-be, 37, might even take an active part at some point: “I can see her getting involved with productions or even directing something.” Could she even return to acting? “It’s not out of the question that we’d see a member of the royal family performing on the stage of the National Theatre one day.”

[From People]

I truly believe that Meghan will never work as an actress again, and that she sees duchessing as her new profession. I don’t think she has any desire to return to the stage, nor would she be “allowed” to do so by the Firm. But directing a play? Eh. Maybe. For charity or something. But mostly I just think that Meghan will enjoy being patroness to the National Theatre because she just likes being around actors and theatrical types and she’s hugely supportive of artists.

U.S. NEW YORK MICHAEL COHEN SENTENCE

Washington reporters and big media outlets tend to look down their noses at Buzzfeed, but Buzzfeed has broken a number of political stories over the past few years, including the first in-depth reporting on the Steele Dossier. All of those quizzes and pop culture ephemera are paying for a solid Buzzfeed Washington Bureau, I think. Anyway, Buzzfeed’s Jason Leopold and Anthony Cormier have broken another story: Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, has told special counsel Robert Mueller and other investigators that Trump directed him to lie about Trump Tower Moscow (aka The Moscow Project). I know, this isn’t really shocking in the sense that it’s brand new information across the board – once we knew that the plans for “Trump Tower Moscow” were a big part of how Vladimir Putin honey-trapped Trump, most of us assumed that Trump was lying about ALL of it.

President Donald Trump directed his longtime attorney Michael Cohen to lie to Congress about negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, according to two federal law enforcement officials involved in an investigation of the matter. Trump also supported a plan, set up by Cohen, to visit Russia during the presidential campaign, in order to personally meet President Vladimir Putin and jump-start the tower negotiations. “Make it happen,” the sources said Trump told Cohen. And even as Trump told the public he had no business deals with Russia, the sources said Trump and his children Ivanka and Donald Trump Jr. received regular, detailed updates about the real estate development from Cohen, whom they put in charge of the project.

Cohen pleaded guilty in November to lying about the deal in testimony and in a two-page statement to the Senate and House intelligence committees. Special counsel Robert Mueller noted that Cohen’s false claim that the project ended in January 2016 was an attempt to “minimize links between the Moscow Project and Individual 1” — widely understood to be Trump — “in hopes of limiting the ongoing Russia investigations.”

Now the two sources have told BuzzFeed News that Cohen also told the special counsel that after the election, the president personally instructed him to lie — by claiming that negotiations ended months earlier than they actually did — in order to obscure Trump’s involvement. The special counsel’s office learned about Trump’s directive for Cohen to lie to Congress through interviews with multiple witnesses from the Trump Organization and internal company emails, text messages, and a cache of other documents. Cohen then acknowledged those instructions during his interviews with that office.

This revelation is not the first evidence to suggest the president may have attempted to obstruct the FBI and special counsel investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election. But Cohen’s testimony marks a significant new frontier: It is the first known example of Trump explicitly telling a subordinate to lie directly about his own dealings with Russia.

[From Buzzfeed]

The thing about it is… Michael Cohen doesn’t have a lot of credibility. Paul Manafort doesn’t have any credibility. Michael Flynn doesn’t have any credibility. All of these guys were lying all the time about multiple issues, just like Trump lies all the time about everything. Donald Trump isn’t going to be indicted merely because Cohen now claims that Trump directed him to lie. But I still have faith that Robert Mueller is weaving a very bigly quilt of indictments and federal charges and that Cohen’s claims are just the latest thread.

Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are smitten after a date night at R+D Kitchen

Considering how religious – and performatively religious – Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger are, there were some questions about sex. As in, are they having sex? My thought is that neither of them are young, promise-ring types – Chris is a divorced single father close to 40 years old. The jig is up, you know? My guess is that they probably waited until they knew they loved each other (never the worst idea) before giving it up. This new People story sort of confirms my belief:

The newly engaged Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger recently moved in together, a source tells PEOPLE.

“Since they started dating, Katherine has taken Chris to all of her favorite neighborhood places,” says the insider. “And Chris clearly likes her neighborhood.”

Pratt, 39, who used to live in the Hollywood Hills with ex-wife Anna Faris, joined his 29-year-old fiancée in west Los Angeles. In his divorce settlement with Faris, 42, the exes agreed to live no further than five miles apart from each other until their 6-year-old son Jack completed the sixth grade. The Mom actress, who’s dating cinematographer Michael Barrett, also now lives in west Los Angeles.

The actor helped Schwarzenegger move out of her home in Santa Monica, California, on Friday. He shared a sweet video of the day on Instagram with the caption, “I love moving!!” Pratt proposed to Schwarzenegger just under seven months after the two were first spotted together on a Father’s Day picnic in L.A.

[From People]

This article is a whirlwind – first they make it sound like Chris moved in with Katherine, but then they say he helped HER move? Obviously, he would have the bigger house – he’s got Marvel money and Jurassic World money – and he’s got self-imposed restrictions on where he will live because of joint custody of Jack. So it makes more sense that she moved in with him, and there’s enough evidence to suggest that they were already doing sleepovers before then, and that she was quite comfortable in his home and in his life. My verdict: they’ve been banging for months now.

Tom Hiddleston seen leaving radio 2

This makes me so happy!! I will never stop missing the golden era of Tom Hiddleston, which for my money was pretty much everything in 2016. Well, the first Golden Era of Hiddles was when he was the only one promoting Thor: The Dark World and he went into Full Overeager Puppy Mode and he was literally dancing on command. But I still say that 2016 Hiddles was better. Since those halcyon days, Hiddles has been so quiet. We can go months without talking about him or seeing him, and it makes me sad. But today we can find some joy!! Tom Hiddleston stopped by BBC Radio 2 to make an appearance on Zoe Ball’s breakfast show. We have photos AND a new interview.

The photos are… good? I like that he’s growing out his hair, and I don’t mind a beard. I feel like he might need to groom his beard a bit, and that’s basically my only complaint. I like seeing his long-ass legs. I like seeing his smart eyeglass frames. He looks pale and pretty. As for the interview, he chats about The Night Manager (which is getting some kind of second season) and his Loki show on Disney+ streaming. Some quotes:

The second season for The Night Manager: “At the moment [the show] is in the lap of John Le Carré and his sons who run The Ink Factory, the production company which produces it.” He added that the second series may attempt to reflect contemporary events. “They are potentially conceiving how these characters might live on: what they’re doing now given the state of the world. Which is curious given that the world is in an ‘interesting’ place, shall we say. What’s Jonathan Pine doing? Where is he? He’s probably in a dark corner somewhere spying on someone. What shape or form might that take? I’m very curious to see what materialises, and that’s about as much as I can say.”

The Loki TV show: “We’re currently in the process of polishing up what it will be: the ideas, the story, the pitch. But it’s definitely happening. Disney are launching a streaming service called Disney+, and I’m not sure exactly when that will be live, but anything that’s ever been made by Disney will be on that thing. So whether it’s The Lion King or Beauty and the Beast, Star Wars and Marvel and Pixar will all be part of that. So you’ll be wanting to subscribe.”

On Avengers: Endgame: “It’s really exciting to do this series about Loki. I can’t say much, we’ve all got to get through Avengers: Endgame first.”

[From Radio Times]

I don’t really think The Night Manager needed a second season, but if John Le Carre is on board, maybe it will be interesting. Maybe Pine can come to America and root out some Russians. As for Disney+ and all of that… it’s a cynical cash grab on all sides and I’m fine with that. Bro has gotta eat.

A post shared by Brielle Biermann (@briellebiermann) on Jul 9, 2018 at 2:05pm PDT

Brielle Biermann is the 21-year-old daughter of RHOA alumnus, Kim Zolciack-Biermann. Brielle appears in Kim’s current reality show Don’t Be Tardy. She’s basically grown up in front of the camera, thanks to her mother’s obsession with reality shows. Because of that, many remember when she looked like this:

And noticed when she started looking like this:

A post shared by Brielle Biermann (@briellebiermann) on Aug 20, 2017 at 2:41pm PDT

As you can see, Brielle shares her mother’s devotion to pillowy lips. Kim encourages Brielle to get injections in her lips because, “it makes her (Brielle) happy.” I have no problem with that, she’s an adult – her body, her choice. But regardless of her motivation, her lips are quite noticeably large and not everyone is a fan. Many tell Brielle some version of, “you looked better before the injections.” Tuesday, Brielle felt compelled to set the record straight with a series of throwback photos on her Instagram stories, calling anyone who her spoke ill of her new lips, “liars.”

Harvard Law School’s Spring Course Catalogue: Evidence 101: PROOOOOOF and How to Own All the Liars”. Since I have sad, little rubber band lips that look fine to me, I can’t confirm that those who are against Brielle’s bee stung beauties are liars. Nor can I conceive of why someone would lie about their opinion. Regardless, this is a hot button for Brielle. She’s constantly defending her decision to get her lips done. As she once responded to an Instagram comment telling her to leave her lips alone, she thinks she looks better and doesn’t care that other people don’t. But she obviously does care. It makes me a little sad because Brielle said her lips are her biggest insecurity. I’m all for plastic surgery if it makes you feel good, whether it improves your look or not. But by the amount of time Brielle spends convincing us we’re wrong and she’s right, I worry the insecurity is more than skin deep.

President Trump in New Orleans

As we discussed this week, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi made a big power move: she rejected Donald Trump’s State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress, at least until the Trump Shutdown is over. Her official reason was the lack of security, but the real reason was to deny Trump the attention he craves, and to avoid using a bicameral session as one of Trump’s sad little Nazi rallies.

Obviously, Emperor Baby Fists was SO MAD. He was so enraged that he decided to “cancel” a Congressional codel to Brussels and Afghanistan. A “codel” is what it’s called when members of the government travel overseas to conduct government work. In this case, Speaker Pelosi and other Democratic members of Congress were supposed to travel to Brussels for NATO briefings, and travel to Afghanistan to get on-the-ground briefings on our military engagements there, etc. The codel was not public knowledge, and security was going to be pretty tight. Here’s the petty AF letter Trump sent to Pelosi:

Pelosi’s response:

Pelosi spokesman: “The purpose of the trip was to express appreciation and thanks to our men and women in uniform … and to obtain critical national security and intelligence briefings … The President traveled to Iraq during the Trump Shutdown as did a Republican CODEL.”

— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) January 17, 2019

My senators, Mark Warner and Tim Kaine, called Trump what he is: PETTY AF.

Asked Sen. Warner & Kaine about Trump revealing Pelosi’s CODEL to Afghanistan. Both were stunned.

KAINE: “I have been to Afghanistan on multiple occasions. It has never been announced that I’m going to Afghanistan. That never happens. Never… this guy is so unbelievably petty.” pic.twitter.com/yLhqlgxepd

— Alan He (@alanhe) January 17, 2019

I also think Trump is BIGLY ENRAGED that one of Pelosi’s first acts as Speaker (again) was going to be traveling into a warzone to meet with American military personnel. Trump is so scared of traveling and visiting the military – it took him more than two years (post-election) to visit the troops in a warzone, and Pelosi was prepared to go into a warzone within weeks of becoming Speaker.

Also: guess which lazy trophy wife is still flying around during the shutdown?

Trump cancelled Speaker Pelosi’s use of USAF services for the scheduled CODEL citing funding issues, but guess who appears to be flying south via USAF from DC?

Royal wedding

Since Prince Philip retired from public life, we only get brief glimpses into how he’s spending his time. He doesn’t seem to be living with the Queen on any kind of permanent or long-term basis at this point – he spends most of his time at Windsor Castle, and only occasionally travels to Buckingham Palace or Sandringham. He likes to ride in the horse-drawn carriages around Windsor, and he only shows up for “royal events” when he feels like it. I’m sort of fine with all that? That man is 97 years old, let him enjoy a retirement. But do NOT let him drive a car, for the love of God. I can’t believe Prince Philip is still allowed to drive cars, but he is. And he crashed his Land Rover yesterday.

Prince Philip is ‘conscious but very shocked and shaken’ after flipping his Land Rover in a dramatic car crash near the Sandringham estate. The Queen is by the duke’s side following the collision which happened just after 3pm when he pulled out of a driveway onto the A149 in Babingley, Norfolk, which leads to Sandringham.

Images have emerged of a black Land Rover having rolled on its side following the crash with a people carrier. Police and ambulance rushed to the scene where two people – in the people carrier – were treated for minor injuries.

The duke was seen by a doctor at his medical facilities on the Sandringham Estate following the crash as a precaution but was given the all clear. A witness said they helped the duke out of the vehicle. He was conscious but very shocked and shaken, royal correspondent Nicholas Witchell said.

[From The Daily Mail]

Apparently, the “two people” in the car with Philip were women, and both were immediately hospitalized following the crash. Of course there’s a lot to say about his age, but I’d also like to take a moment to wonder if everyone was wearing their seatbelts? For Philip to walk away unscathed from a car flip seems to indicate that he was wearing a seatbelt. But the ladies? Hm. As for his age… yes, there’s only one thing to say: make him stop driving. He has security and personnel around him, surely one of them can drive. Also: apparently, the police are investigating the accident and there’s a very real possibility that the Duke could be charged with some kind of driving citation.

There’s a really bad part of me that had a conspiracy theory about all of this, that perhaps Philip had been Weekend-At-Bernie‘d for the better part of a year and this is how they were finally going to “officially” kill him off. I KNOW I AM GOING TO HELL.

Honoree Kathy Bates

The last time I covered Kathy Bates was a couple of years ago, when she discussed the fact that she had a double mastectomy to treat her stage II breast cancer in 2012 and had opted to skip reconstruction. (She had talked about her breast cancer before.) She was also diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2003. The good news is that she’s beaten both. Kathy has been working since 2014 to raise awareness for lymphedema, a condition where the lymph nodes get blocked and can cause painful swelling, which she developed after having her lymph nodes removed. I’ve known several people who have developed lymphedema and apparently it’s very common but often goes undiagnosed. Kathy recently lost 60 pounds and dyed her hair dark. I almost didn’t recognize her! At a recent event in her honor, she explained that she did it to treat and prevent her lymphedema from worsening. She also discussed her cancer battle and how it can be disheartening to lose friends who don’t stand by you.

“[Lymphedema] affects more people than ALS, MS, AIDS and Parkinson’s combined. Ten million Americans. But people just don’t know about it,” she says…

Bates worked with LE&RN, the Lymphatic Education & Research Network, to find a doctor who understood the condition.

“I’m feeling great,” she says. “I’ve lost a lot of weight and it’s really helped with my symptoms. I just still have to wear compression sleeves or guard against nicks and bug bites because that can lead to sepsis.”

But Bates knows that not all lymphedema sufferers are as lucky to have that support, so she became the national spokesperson for LE&RN to spread the word. She was honored at the WebMD event as the 2019 “Game Changer” for her work.

“When I heard those figures I got involved,” she says. “I got very pissed off because it was unfair. I’ve been asked to lend my name to a cause [before] and I’ve made it my policy not to do that, but this is the first one I’ve felt strongly about.”

Bates says that for both lymphedema and cancer, the best thing people can do for friends or family who are dealing with the conditions is to stick by them.

“I think going through breast and ovarian cancer you feel like you’re a burden,” she says. “I’ve lost friends because some friends want to help but don’t realize it’s a long process. So they sort of drop out. It’s a problem. I think families try to do the best they can but it’s very difficult to help.” – From People

On how she lost the weight
“Mindfulness, just knowing when to push my plate away,” Bates revealed to Us. “My niece told me this little secret, I guess it’s no secret, it’s a biological thing, that at some point when you’re eating, you have this involuntary sigh and that’s really your brain and your stomach communicating that you’ve had enough,” she said. “The trick is to pay attention to that and push your plate away.”

In addition, the Oscar winner said she’s been avoiding temptations such as junk food and soda…

“It took a few years,” Bates admitted. “I would say you have to be really patient … I don’t like the word willpower, but I like the word determination.” – From US

[From People and US Magazine]

I love how she said it took years to lose weight and that she didn’t discuss her diet specifically, just that she learned portion control and to stop when she was full. That description of your body sighing was so cool. She’s not out here touting some cleanse or giving up carbs. *cough* Plus she seems to genuinely care about and be affected by this cause and it’s not for a pharmaceutical company. (Although multiple companies do sponsor it and if she was getting paid there’s not shame in it.) I love Kathy and I’m glad she’s feeling great now.

Oh and I put the thing about losing friends in the title because I was chronically sick, many years ago, and I could relate. Some people stop showing up for you when you get ill.
