The rise of fascism: Minutes 1:30 to 4:30
Boris Johnson, a terrible racist with a superficial resemblance to Trump, has been appointed Prime Minister of the United Kingdom after Theresa May stepped down following the Brexit debacle. We talk about that and our disappointment with Robert Mueller’s testimony.

The Affleck brothers and Matt Damon have new films: Minutes 4:30 to 11:45
Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are reuniting on screen and co-writing a screenplay based on a 14th century revenge story of two best friends. One of them goes to war, comes back and accuses the other of raping their wife. No one believes the wife’s claim she was raped so their sentence is to fight to the death. If the husband loses his wife gets burned at the stake. Given Ben’s history of sexual harassment, and Matt’s history of discounting women’s MeToo stories, the plot sounds problematic at best. Casey Affleck is making his big return following two sexual harassment lawsuits. He’s directing and starring in a post apocalyptic film in which all women have been wiped out by a disease. We find the whole premise weak.

Scarlett Johansson’s ugly engagement ring: Minutes 11:45 to 15:45
Scarlett Johansson, who is 34 and has been married and divorce twice, is engaged for the third time to Colin Jost of Saturday Night Live. She wore her engagement ring to Comic-Con and it is different to say the least. It’s a brown 11 carat diamond and is a round teardrop shape on a curved black band. We find her engagement ring ugly and talk about our favorite rings. Here’s my moissanite engagement ring from 2004! It’s a platinum radiant-cut ring with trillion accents and is 2.5 total carats. Chandra has a preference for halo rings and likes these two engagement rings.

One in four women under 25 have stopped shaving their armpits: Minutes 15:45 to 20
According to research by Mintel and reported by Vogue at least one in four women under age 25 has stopped shaving their armpits. We’ve seen this trend on the red carpet a bit lately, although I’m sure Julia Roberts thinks she invented it. We give TMI about our shaving preferences and habits.

    I think Scarlett’s ring is beautiful. Everyone is entitled to her own taste but isn’t it rude to trash-talk another woman’s choice for something so personal? If it isn’t rude, then I say halo rings are boring. So are ballerinas & the average 3 stone rings. I like rings which are different than run-of the-mill, mass-produced settings with whatever stones plopped in that the couple can afford.
    Even Duchess Kate’s halo-set sapphire isn’t very interesting. The big sapphire is gorgeous and the setting does it no justice. Yes, I get the sentimental attachment because it was Diana’s, but there’s nothing particularly artistic about it.

    Celebitchy, your ring is pretty! I really like it.

    I love halo rings too, but feel they are very 2010-2015. Like, almost everyone I know who got engaged in that time frame has one. Mine is a princess cut diamond with channel set diamonds on the band, which is very 2006ish (the year I got engaged lol.) my SIL got engaged in 2005 and her ring is basically identical to mine.

      I got engaged in 2014 but mine is vintage, it was my husband’s Grandmother’s (so I’m guessing circa 1940-1950?). I love vintage jewelry and am honored his family agreed for him to use it. It’s very classic with a round brilliant cut diamond with 2 baguette diamonds on either side set in platinum, and the wedding band is 5 beautiful diamonds in a row. Frankly I was super excited about it because I’m not a fan of the halo setting that was popular then (and still is).

  3. Valiantly Varnished says:

    I like to think of Scarlett’s ring as karma. She got the ring she deserves.

  4. NotSoSocialButterfly says:

    I wish they hadn’t enameled the band. The inner side and prongs appear to be rose gold. I think that would flatter the light brown stone, but I’m a rose gold fan (my ring is in platinum).

  5. sommolierlady says:

    Can’t stand her but I like the ring. To each her own.

  6. hnmmom says:

    I think Scarlett’s ring looks like the Basilisk fang from Happy Potter. But hey – to each their own.

  7. Agnes says:

    Chandra – my engagement ring is like the first one you linked to. And it’s a blue sapphire. I love it!
