This Week In Tabloids: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Are Officially Divorcing, Allegedly

Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we flip through the tabloids while thinking about other things, like what to get for lunch, which—seeing as how I have no leftovers in the office fridge nor the appetite for something healthy like a salad—will likely be in the form of a burrito bowl from the fast-casual chain of all…

This Week In Tabloids: Celine Dion's Late Husband René Angélil Was Once Accused of Rape?

Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we approach the counter of our new magazine store, ask the friendly man to unbox this week’s tabloids, wait patiently as he finds them, and are given a funny look after telling him that, no, we have no interest in purchasing People or Us Weekly, and that Star, In Touch, OK!, and Life…

This Week In Tabloids: Mary-Kate Olsen, Miley Cyrus, Nicole Kidman, and Gwen Stefani Are Pregnant 

Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we discover a new magazine store within walking distance of our office (the old one was several stops away on a very annoying train), enter it, notice the magazines are all old, ask the friendly old man if this week’s tabs have come in, are told they’re in the back, and follow him to…

Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we receive word that Kris Jenner’s nose is falling off, run to Ace Hardware, buy some spackle, a joint knife, duct tape, Gorilla Glue, and book a first class ticket—expensed to Jezebel—to LAX, where we take an Uber Black all the way to Kris Jenner’s home in Calabasas. “Let me in!” we…

This Week In Tabloids: Let Us Pray, Kourtney Kardashian Is Pregnant With Justin Bieber's Baby

This Week In Tabloids: Kim Is Leaving Kanye, Gwen Is Leaving Blake, and I'm Leaving Earth

Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we continue last week’s format and break down the “news” by topic—not magazine—because it’s what I feel like doing.

This Week In Tabloids: Prince Harry's About to Be a Daddy, and Queen Mommy Ain't Happy

Welcome to Midweek Madness, where we suddenly start thinking about how much candy we’ve eaten over the past few weeks, get freaked out for the sake of our teeth, decide it’s time to start reading tabloids to get our mind off tooth decay, find three of the magazines, have trouble obtaining Star, and just sort of go…

1971 In Tabloids: What In the Sam Hill Does Ryan O'Neal Think He's Doing?

Welcome to Midcentury Madness, where we hop in the car with Ryan O’Neal after he invites us out, drive from party to party meeting every hip young famous person in Hollywood, listen to him complain about his former wives and daughter Tatum while barreling around curves in Laurel Canyon, scream, “RYAN SLOW DOWN,” and…
