NewZ, PitcheZ & FunnieZ
Vol. 46, but Leonardo DiCaprio just turned 48
The (long) weekend comes and goes like a short nap: It’s necessary, way too fast, and leaves me grumpy when it’s over. But Monday is gonna Monday whether I bitch about it or not, so might as well make it productive, right?!
We had a FAB time in DC and I plan on listing out my itinerary along with recommendations in an upcoming post. I also have some new FAVE ProductZ to share, which also seems to be a hit. Stay tuned!
This week I am working on a ton of writing assignments, pitching my clients to media and running a few affiliate setups. Thanksgiving is right around the corner and the pressure of the holidays is really starting to set in. Comment with a dish you’re preparing and join the app chat. Bonus points for links. Mama needs ideas!
I’ve got a short round-up for you this afternoon, plus a brand new assignment ripe for the pitching. Thank you to EVERYONE who pitches me! I’ve got another handful of storieZ coming out soon, and I so appreciate all your contributions.
Have a fabulous week!

In news absolutely no one could have possibly predicted, the $8/mo Twitter subscription has been a bonafide disaster. After a surge of impersonation issues (including one that sent stocks tumbling at Eli Lilly LOL), Twitter has suspended the plan for the time being.
It’s not all fairytales over at the Happiest Place on Earth these days. Disney CEO Bob Chapek announced in a memo that the company will “have to make tough and uncomfortable decisions,” alluding to layoffs and spending cuts. There is some joke beneath the surface about politics, but I can’t land it and honestly maybe I’m just hoping this might bring ticket prices down a smidge.
Sad news, Comedian Gallagher passed away on November 11. He was famous for smashing watermelons, which turned out to be way less benign than I think he probably thought when he chose that bit.
Leo DiCaprio turned 48 this past week. I know it should not be shocking that time passes and people age, and yet, here I am, shookethed once again.
Pete Davidson has moved on from Kim K (and Ariana Grande and Kate Beckinsale and Cindy Crawford’s daughter…) and is reportedly dating model and actress Emily Ratajkowski. You see what good jokes can do???? DO YOU SEE!?
Morgan Freeman narrates Our Universe, a six-part series that explores the connections that drive our natural world. Okay that’s fine but who TF else would they cast? Debuting Tuesday, November 22 on Netflix.
NCIS, NCIS: Hawai’i, and NCIS: Los Angeles will have a three-hour crossover event on Monday, January 2 on CBS. Make sure you tell your parents.
For those of you as demented as I am who choose to fuel your anxiety with true crime horror stories, Vanished Into Thin Air premiers tonight at 10p on ID.
Also on ID, Murder Under the Friday Night Lights kicks off season two on Wednesday at 10p. Why watch a show about football when you can watch a show about murder? #America
Keke Palmer (“Nope”) will host Saturday Night Live on December 3. Do I know what Nope is? Nope. Do I know who Keke is? Also Nope. But now we don’t know together.
You can’t breathe and swallow at the same time. (But I bet you just tried!)
Laugh Track: On. Also, just a lil reminder… Catch me and my fav joke tellerZ over on Insta too!
