‘Gossip with Celebitchy’ podcast #18: Royal reporters saltier about Meghan (update)

Update: we have hired a new writer, Quimby! Thank you to everyone who applied we appreciate it so much. Also we are taking the next two weeks off the podcast and will be back on June 10th.

My weird treatment and how we cope with reality: Minutes 0 to 5:30
I mention that my ObGyn has me on a treatment that is quite controversial. We talk about the current move to ban abortion/women’s healthcare throughout the US and why we’re covering less political stories lately. You can listen below! The episode is also available on YouTube at the bottom of this post.

Constance Wu: Minutes 5:30 to 16
We cover Constance Wu’s arguably ungrateful reaction on social media to Fresh Off The Boat’s renewal and how her non-apology made it worse. Gemma Chan liked a tweet stating that coworkers know this about Wu, but then claimed it was an accidental like. We heard that Wu was a diva on the set of Hustlers, and while that story originated in Page Six, we think it has a grain of truth. I also found an interview Wu did with Colbert where she said she had to convince Crazy Rich Asians director Jon M. Chu to hold off production to accommodate her schedule on FOTB. Plus we talk about Always Be My Maybe, the new Netflix romcom starring Constance’s co-star on FOTB, Randall Park, with a special guest that gets me excited.

Royals and The Royal Baby: Minutes 16 to 22:45
For Mother’s Day Meghan posted a photo of baby Archie’s feet to Instagram! We wondered on podcast #13 whether they would do this, but in this case we didn’t mind because we’d already seen the baby. We talk about the name Archie and how he may have been named after Harry’s friend or Meghan’s childhood cat! I mention that my brother once named a dog after me. (He sometimes listens to the podcast so I hope he hears this.) We talk about the royal reporters being salty about Meghan inviting CBS and Gayle King to cover the baby presentation.

Game of Thrones needs different writers: Minutes 22:45 to 31:30
We don’t have any spoilers for the finale because we record these Thursdays. There are spoilers up to the penultimate episode, The Bells, 8.5. We talk about the writers giving more motivation to the men and creating poorly-drawn women, particularly Daenerys. We also discuss the maudlin send off for Cersei and Jaime and who we want to survive the finale.

User Questions: We’re looking for a new writer Minutes 31:30 to 36
Thanks to Diplomanatee and Becks1 for your feedback last week! We talk about Chandra’s laugh and why it’s so infectious. Also we discuss Busy Philipps’ show getting canceled by E! and how that’s a crock. We are looking for a new writer! We give our specifications for that position around minute 34:30. You can email me about it at info-at-celebitchy.com.

Comments of The Week: Minutes 36 to 39
My comment of the week is from Lady D on the GoT needs new writers story. Kaiser/Chandra’s comment of the week is from Alissa on the story about Lori Loughlin’s level of fame.

    Ahhhh! As a freelance writer and longtime reader… I’ve been waiting for this moment!! What a fun opportunity.

    Also, Ali + Randall + that special guest = perfection. Cannot waiiiiit to see this one

  2. snazzy says:

    The Constance Wu thing is interesting isn’t it? I had read Lainey’s coverage of it before, and while initially I was like “ok, why not” after the follow up I just thought she was an entitled brat. And really, all she had to do was frame it like she did on Colbert, and she would have looked fine, instead of doing what she did.

    I do wonder about people and social media though. It’s like once you get on Twitter or IG people lose the few brain cells they had in the first place. I mean, why would you even do that?

  3. MrsBanjo says:

    I feel bad because I love the name Archie Harrison, but every time I hear it my brain immediately goes to the character Tony Harrison from The Mighty Boosh.

    ETA: My cat’s name is I-Chaya (pronounced eye-chaya) from Original Series (specifically animated) Star Trek, but we call him Itchy. My dog’s name is Milo, but we didn’t name him. Though it’s a very common dog name.

    Can I just say that Duchess Katherine does the *best* resting bitch face of ALL TIME?

  5. eto says:

    Wow! I have been pronouncing Celebitchy incorrectly for so many years lol

  6. launicaangelina says:

    I love the job description on the podcast! 😂 The very clear requirements of views cracked me up, but is worth emphasis. It also great that you’re aiming for more diversity in the writing team. I know you’ll find a great candidate!

    Hi, I didn’t have a chance to listen to this until just now. I’m the one who commented about why Celebitchy isn’t covering politics anymore and is covering whether Brendan Fraser and Leslie Mann had a fling 20 years ago ot something.

    I wrote that because I miss your coverage. A safe liberal-leaning website is a rare thing, and sometimes I came here first when something happened. Also you have great readers, including some lawyers who explain things better than lots of other so-called experts.

    I get that you’re worn out, so is everyone who’s not a Nazi Zombie or whatever they are. Things are coming to a head (I’m writing just after Trumpolini walked out on Pelosi and Schumer). We need to be strong and resist. Personally I’m thinking of buying 10 of Leslie Jones’ MINE-> tee shirts that she wore on SNL this weekend and wearing them day and night.

    Ok, just thought I’d tell you. I love Celebitchy!
