    If Kim Kardashian can trademark “Kimono” then Cardi should be able to trade Okurrr. At least one isn’t a word that’s been around for hundreds of years. 🙄

    • ME says:

      Kim never applied to have Kimono trademarked. Actually she just tweeted she is changing the name to something else because of all the justified outcry.

      • Valiantly Varnished says:

        She was planning on it. And the city of Kyoto sent her a letter asking her not to and why it was insensitive to use the name. I think that is why she ultimately decided to change it.

      • ME says:

        Yes I know about the letter and it’s a good thing she changed the name. I don’t understand how she thought it was a good name to begin with. The fact is, she didn’t trademark it and hadn’t even begun the process of doing so. No way would she have been able to trademark “Kimono” anyways and I think Kim and her team knew that.

    What happened to the podcast?

    I like how Maisie’s bf is kinda Gendry-esque IRL.

    You guys do know that that expression has been used a ton by queer POC communities for ages, right? In the exact same way that Cardi uses it — clearly that’s where she got it from. It’s not at all shocking that she wouldn’t get it trademarked. I’m not at all sure it’s even a trademarkable expression. What next, trademarking “what’s up?”

    • ME says:

      That’s exactly what I was thinking. That term/expression has been around a very long time.

    • Detriotgirl says:

      THANK YOU! Exactly! Even the kardashians were saying “okurr” before Cardi came along. Kylie Jenner has a whole lipstick with that name that came out in 2016, and obviously she did not originate that term either. The K family and Cardi both got that word from other people.

    • BeanieBean says:

      I didn’t know that, so I learned something today. One of the many reasons I like this website.

    I couldn’t get the Jake video up on the other site, but Jake’s acting has always found a way into my heart and soul…Moonlight Mile (2002) where he played the grieving boyfriend in a movie based on poor sweet actress Rebecca Schaeffer’s tragic murder; Southpaw (2015) ahh, I have no words; and of course Brokeback Mountain (2005) , his Jack Twist character was and will always be seared into my aching soul.

    Sorry I sound like a pathetic moronic schoolgirl 🤪 but he just does it for me. I haven’t seen all of his movies, and I’m not enthralled with a few of them, but BB Mountain will always be one of my emotional touchstones.

    I’m old enough to be his mother, but man oh man-those blue eyes! That crooked smile!

    • Tiffany says:

      One of my favorite early performances of his was October Sky. That was just a great movie.

      • ravynrobyn says:

        Oh man, how could October Sky slip my mind? What a warm heartfelt movie-interesting TRUE story portraying good, decent people with amazing acting all around, all the feels. Thanks for the walk down memory lane 💕

        I think Jake’s first movie role was as Billy Crystal’s son in the first City Slickers in 1991. I noticed him cuz he was such a cute kid with those big eyes and mischievous smile. Little did I know, lol.

    Please wear sunscreen Celebitches.

    • snazzy says:

      OMG yes, please do! We have a heat wave out here in Europe so also make sure you reapply after some time if you’re sweating or have been swimming. So easy to get burned!

  7. pulchritudinous says:

    LOL @ Gwyneth Paltrow commenting on Chris Pratt’s IG: “I’ve got some goop for that”

  8. Bella Bella says:

    Chris Pratt’s back is such a turnoff to me. All I can think is ewww.

    And I think Celine Dion might be losing her mind. I’m worried about her.

  9. snazzy says:

    Lol I can’t help myself, but I actually really like Henry Cavill. When I think about him in the Tudors (yes I know it was ages ago) I still swoon.

    • Valiantly Varnished says:

      Same. I get the feeling he’s a bit of a dope but I still like him.

  10. Cher says:

    It takes Chris Pratt to make butt dents a turnoff. Seriously, his body should’ve been a turn on, but… it’s HIM.

    Agree! I absolutely loathe his homophobic ass. I can’t wait for this animal abuser to blip off the radar.

  13. JanetDR says:

    I was completely blown away by how much I loved the Jumaji movie! I’m down for a sequel.

  14. Valerie says:

    Dude, that phrase has been around forever. How ignorant is she?
