Adding to her legal battle with her former management company, the girl with the bangs Zooey Deschanel has filed a cross-complaint that claims Sarah Jackson, a partner from Seven Summits, banged into her dressing room with two strangers –on purpose!–while she was changing her clothes.


The Hollywood Reporter reports that the alleged incident took place when Deschanel was on tour as the “She” part of She & Him, the band responsible for this pleasant cover of “The Christmas Song,” among other things. Deschanel was in her dressing room, presumably dressing or otherwise en déshabillé, when “Jackson brought the two strangers in the dressing room to help further [the manager’s] career and to potentially generate revenue for [the firm].”

In addition to the dressing room incident, Deschanel is alleging that Seven Summits tried to get use her relationship with Creative Artists Agency —a much better agency, clearly – to get a meeting with a client they wanted to land. When that client wouldn’t sign with Seven Summits, they then tried to get ol’ Zooey to switch from CAA to United Talent Agencies as “retaliation.”

This whole mess is a result of Deschanel’s original agency (that’s Seven Summits, stay with me) suing her for the ten percent they’re owed for the sale of Deschanel’s pet project, Hello Giggles and other commissions that they’re supposedly owed.

That’s either an Entourage episode that never mad it to air or a big freakin’ mess or both. Good luck!

Alec Baldwin has been putting on a bad wig and an ill-fitting suit and embodying the spirit, mannerisms and unique vocal inflections of Flamin’ Hot Racist™ Donald Trump for Saturday Night Live and it would seem that it’s taking a toll on his spirit.


In an interview with ¡HOLA!, Baldwin said, “I haven’t felt like this in a long, long time.” Presumably speaking about the mental and emotional burden that comes from finding some way to make the President-elect humorous, he continued: “There are bad feelings on both sides, so to have the opportunity to give people a chance to talk and laugh about it is a good thing.”

To further clarify his position, he said in an earlier interview with WNYC, “I don’t hate Trump, but he’s not somebody I admire.”


All right. Sounds good. Seems fine.


Look at this very good Instagram.


Thank you for your attention to this matter.

I don’t like Katie’s bangs.


Interesting time for Alec Baldwin to learn diplomacy.


I don’t know why this week hasn’t ended yet, but it feels like it’s been going on forever.
