ABOVE: Quinn Jaxon, front and center.
WOKV: No cops at Pride in NYC until at least 2025, and gay officers are “disheartened.” (Any word on how they feel about police brutality?) Instead, more private and community-based security will be used. It's ... an experiment.
SNL: Fave part of SNL? Kate McKinnon as Liz Cheney saying she loved Trump “like a straight sister.”
GR8ERDAYS: Dick Van Dyke is 95 and ready to return to the stage. Indefatigable. Also: Rick Shroder, Janet Jackson, Dolly Parton and Jean Smart.
VULTURE: Speaking of Jean Smart, everyone is raving about Hacks on HBO Max, and I ... agree. It's not the “dark” comedy that was pitched, so much as a battle of the Boomer vs. the millennial, with Smart's take on Roseanne Barr/Joan Rivers/Rita Rudner as the anchor. Only two episodes so far, but it's insightful and witty, plus au courant, touching on so-called cancel culture nonobnoxiously. (I am also loving Mare of Easttown.)
SOCIALITE LIFE: We used to avoid underarm hair pics of teen idols when I ran a teen mag. Girls hate it. (Boys love it, though.)
JOE.MY.GOD.: Dude accused of killing his wife is now accused of illegally using her vote in the presidential election of 2020. I'll give you one guess who she voted for.
