This is a short one, buds, but definitely worthy of being today’s top story. In an interview with E!, the network that will soon be airing her reality show, the elusive and newly single Mariah Carey revealed her current diet. “It’s really hard,” she told the E!’s Zuri Hall. “My diet, you would hate it. All you eat is Norwegian salmon and capers every day. That’s it.”
Norwegian salmon and capers. Every day. That’s it. She doesn’t even put it on a bagel. A nice toasted everything bagel with scallion cream cheese. Maybe a tomato. Some red onions. A little salt and pepper. No, she just eats the Norwegian salmon and capers. Every day. That’s it.
After a long, busy day, adults around the world come home, kick off their shoes, and reach for the only thing that can calm their nerves. I’m not talking about a magnum of white zinfandel, I’m talking about coloring books. And one such person who reaches for the therapeutic pages of a bestselling adult coloring book is Duchess Kate Middleton.
The Telegraph reports Prince William recently told a “top illustrator,” Johanna Bamford, that his wife, the Duchess of whatever, “enjoys colouring-in-books,” which must be the fancy British aristocratic way of saying “she likes to color.” Bamford recalled the event, saying:
“I think we’ve just seen the colouring community flourish. And Prince William actually said that his wife likes to colour in the Secret Garden, which was really sweet.”
First of all: the colouring community? Second of all: I would watch a Facebook Live of Duchess Kate coloring. Hey Buckingham social, get on that.
Jesus Christ, do you know how much money Matt Lauer makes now? Maybe you’ll hear these numbers, which Page Six reported today, and think, “Oh, that’s just what famous morning show hosts make these days.” And maybe you’re right! Maybe I shouldn’t be surprised by his salary, but you know what? I am.
He just re-signed $20 million per year contract that will keep him at NBC’s Today for the next two years. And this isn’t even more money than he was making before! It’s just the same thing! For longer! Matt Lauer has already been making $20 million a year for showing up to work early and flirting with both coworkers and strangers on live television! Isn’t that bonkers? I think it’s bonkers.
A coworker who will not be named sent me this video with the caption, “They’re so lame together.” That coworker is right.
