THR: John Waters fancies himself a patron saint of the ugly and untalented in a fab new Q&A with Seth Abramovitch upon the occasion of the Academy Museum in L.A. honoring him with a retrospective of his work:
I’d just like to have the lowest person that comes to Hollywood — that’s ugly and wants to be a movie star or untalented and wants to be a director — and have them walk over my star and feel a little bit of hope. That’s what it’s for.

Meanwhile, batshit-crazy Trumpers are beginning to fake their own mug shots to stand with the Georgia accused:
NYT: The juicy story of the Wildenstein inheritance case that could destroy an art dynasty. Yes, THAT Wildenstein family, just not THAT Wildenstein. The entire criminal enterprise is jaw-dropping.
NYT: Everyone sent me this Helen Roper story, so I refused to post it. But it's great, so here.
US WEEKLY: Sara Ramirez sounds as unironically exhausted as Che. See, non-binary people can be assholes — it's okay to hate Che, it's just not okay to hate Che (or Sara) simply for being non-binary.
AOL: This vile, vile, vile bitch Lauren Pazienza, a Long Island heiress whose friends all said she was a crazy nightmare, took a plea deal in the death of innocent 87-year-old acting coach Barbara Gustern in NYC last years. She's been in prison for a year and will be sentenced to eight plus five years of post-prison supervision. I hope her life is utterly miserable and she never knows a moment of peace or joy. Why? Because hers was such an egregious crime. She didn't snap during an argument, she didn't make a mistake, she ran across a street and deliberately shoved a woman so hard she later died. One of the last things Barbara heard was, “BITCH!” from a total stranger.
