Bombastic Side Eye: NewZ + FunnieZ LFG
Vol 91: Hello, Sun.
It’s somehow Tuesday May 9. And it’s a great time of year, isn’t it? The Met Gala is behind us, ushering in the first hints of summer, which is so close we can smell it. The sun is coming out to play and melting away some of our seasonal depression. No word yet on whether it’ll be a Regular Depresh season. But I digress. And share too much. On the note of oversharing, I will tell you that I’m having debilitating pain in my upper left shoulder/neck/radiating down my arm. If anyone has any experience with this/solutions, PLEASE hit me up. Thank you! Moving on…

Media & ShowZ
Everyone’s favorite chef is back. Hulu’s The Bear premieres season two on Thursday, June 22.
20 million+ UK viewers tuned in for The Coronation of King Charles III. Which sounds like a lot, but the Queen’s legacy will have you know it’s well short of the 28 million who watched her funeral. Try harder, Charlie.
The WGA strike enters its 2nd week. Production on many popular shows has been pushed as a result, including Stranger Things, Evil, Hacks, Loot, Cobra Kai and others. Netflix will changing its popup from “Are you still watching?” to “We also wish you had something to watch. Sorry. Come back soon.”
TMZ has a new TV special about Britney Spears, her post-conservatorship life, and alleged “big problems.” If my memory serves well (and let’s be honest, it doesn’t generally) wasn’t a TV special how the conservatorship ended in the first place? It’s almost as if… maybe there’s consequences for our actions when we meddle in other people’s mental health for sport.
Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, Nicole Scherzinger and other pop stars performed this past week at King Charles’ Coronation across the pond, entertaining the Kingdom’s 20,000 fans in attendance at Windsor Castle. I mean yeah when I think British Monarchy, I also think Pussy Cat Dolls.
There was also a cameo by “The Grim Reaper.” Because why not.
Utah’s slogan should be Utah: More drama than you think. A Utah woman who penned a children’s book about grief following her husband’s death has been accused of murdering him. And her name is spelled Kouri.
Robert De Niro reveals he welcomed his 7th child. Who knew De Niro was the OG Nick Cannon?
Funny how love and money disappear at the same rate. Kim Zolciak has filed for divorce. Andy Cohen sent condolences via text. Bethenny Frankel went a slightly different route, suggesting the couple should pay their “f-king bills,” referring to their reported $1M tax bill.
And finally, with no further context, I present you this real headline for a real story: Giant phallus-shaped iceberg floating in Conception Bay surprises residents of Dildo, Canada.
It’s funny because I hurt my neck.
That’s all for now! Had fun? Tell your friends please and thanks!
