Hello, did everyone have a fun Eclipse Day? How long did you stare into its bright, deadly face? Five seconds? 12? You’ll probably blame your eventual blindness on that nice day you glanced briefly at the sun, but remember the real reason is because you spent three-quarters of your life staring at a computer screen.

But SINCE you’re HERE!:

A hacker who leaked nude photos of a number of celebrities—Tiger Woods, Katharine McPhee, Lindsey Vonn, Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart and Stella Maxwell among them—is going to be in serious trouble if/when (s)he gets caught. According to TMZ, Woods and McPhee have already lawyered up, and everyone else is expected to follow suit.


Woods’ attorney, Michael Holtz, wasted no time composing a threatening letter to the site where the photos are hosted, promising legal action if they’re not taken down STAT.

TMZ’s sources also noted that it wasn’t Woods’s phone that was hacked, but Vonn’s, and that the leaked pic was one that Woods sent while they were dating.

Recall that Ryan Collins, who plead guilty to charges related to the 2014 celebrity nude photo leak dubbed “The Fappening,” got 18 months in federal prison for his crimes. Hope it was worth it!


The eternally delightful Jennifer Aniston has been patiently fielding Friends-related questions almost without pause since the show wrapped more than a dozen years ago. In a little interview with Elle published today, the magazine asked what she made of a recent Twitter flare-up over whether her character, Rachel, should have ended up with Joey. A less patient actor might have huffed something noncommittal, but Aniston has a firm opinion:

No! No, no. They tried! I think there was a moment when Joey and Rachel got together that maybe it could happened, but it didn’t. It was Ross and Rachel all the way. I really believe that if there’s an afterworld of Friends, they’re still thriving. Don’t you? I just don’t think Joey and Rachel could have made it. I think it was more physical than emotional with them. They were friends with benefits, and they left it at that.


This has reminded me how much I truly enjoyed the Joey/Rachel storyline, because there are few things in life as exhilarating (and probably ultimately damaging) as becoming involved with someone you’ve known platonically for years. With that in mind, let’s revisit footage of Joey and Rachel’s first kiss, soundtracked to, I shit you not, Interpol. Interpol!

Arguing about Friends is clearly what I need to be doing right now, so...

I disagree with Jennifer that their relationship was more physical than emotional. The reason it didn’t work was that they couldn’t get really physical because of their emotional relationship.

I thought the woman on Twitter was correct about Ross being terrible, but I find the idea that Rachel and Joey don’t end up sleeping together because of their friendship pretty sweet.
