    Aw, so happy for the Buttigieg family! And it goes to show that you can stick Thandiwe Newton in a cheap-looking ice skating dress and she still looks like a goddess.

  2. Eurydice says:

    Congrats to the Buttigieg family!!

  3. ClaireB says:

    Congrats to the new parents!

    This is silly, but every time I see Chasten’s name, I hear it as “chase-en”, like the disciplinary kind. I wish parents wouldn’t do that to their children!

    • SJ says:

      wait… is that… not how it’s pronounced?? I only get my news by text not audio/video so I just…. wow. oops.

      • ClaireB says:

        @SJ, I assume that’s not how it’s pronounced because it seems so silly (and such a terrible name given its meaning), but I haven’t listened to anyone say it. I have been thinking it’s pronounced Chast-en.

      • Anners says:

        I 100% pronounced it like Jason with a Ch-. Is this wrong?!

        Congrats to all the new parents!

    • stephka says:

      I agree that Chasten seems like an odd word to use as a name. I too wonder how it’s pronounced.

      • Meghan says:

        I was just thinking about how my brain kind of goes fzzzzttt when I see “Chasten.” I’m just glad I gave my kid a regular name, especially after so many years of my name being constantly misspelled. (And I’m pretty sure if someone forced me to say his name aloud I would say it like chasin’)

  4. BothSidesNow says:

    Poor Thandiwe, but that dress is so undeserving of her greatness. It looks awful on her and I agree on her lip color choice as well. What is this “dress” supposed to look like as it is a complete fail every way you look at it.

    I wish they would have outed the newly married A+ list celebrity couple refusing to vaccinate!! I could only think of Bieber, sorry to say.

    • rainbowkitty says:

      I can’t even think of who else is a newly wed A lister. My guess would be the Biebers as well.

      • Jaded says:

        Well that weirdo Hillsong church they belong to doesn’t advocate for vaccination, the founder only says “it’s a personal decision” which is religo-speak for “Jesus will look after you”.

      • Grey says:

        The only other guess I would have is Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger?

      • Jo73c says:

        Gwen Stefani & Blake Shelton? not that I especially suspect them of being anti-vax, but they are newly wed.

  5. Ann says:

    That looks like a canary costume. I agree, not worthy of her.

    Congrats to the Buttigieg family and to Catriona Balfe and her husband as well!

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Yes, many congratulations to Catriona Balfe and her husband as well!! She seems so into her pregnancy and how grateful they are to be in a part of the world that millions of other children are not. They are very compassionate about those children less fortunate. Good for them!!

    • nina says:

      The dress reminds me of my grandmother’s 1970’s chandelier that she still has in her living room 🙂

  6. anniefannie says:

    I’m so happy for Pete and Chasten! You know they’re going to be great parents and I find them both sooo adorable.
    A little OT but if you haven’t seen Mayor Pete
    school Meghan McCain ( on the view ) on late term abortion It is well worth the look up on YouTube

  7. Jules says:

    In what world are the Bieber’s A -list?


    Definitely seems like Kylie is pushing a solo brand, but her name’s been attached to swimsuit for ages due to the Kendall and Kylie brand.

    • Eurydice says:

      Perhaps, by “solo” you mean she’s the only one who will be wearing it? From the example in the link this doesn’t look like anything a person can wear, let alone swim in.

  9. Beth says:

    That Versace dress looks like a pageant outfit, or something a tacky Real Housewife would wear on a reunion special. I thought Thandiwe usually had a better eye?

  10. Stacy Dresden says:

    Yeaaaaa for the Buttigiegs. They will surely make exemplary parents.

  11. CE says:

    Let’s not vaccine shame people now come on. If they do it now, great. Better late than never. Don’t care about the ‘why’

    • Meghan says:

      I won’t shame anyone but I will be salty AF if my company rolls out an incentive for people who get vaccinated now. I mean I highly doubt they will but if they do, it better be retroactive because I’ve been fully vaxxed since May, when my age group opened up.

      My stepsister has Covid because she “didn’t have time” to go get the vax. She can’t wait to feel better so she can go get it. She has had some major life changes recently so I truly believe she just forgot or wasn’t thinking about it but damn that’s a hard lesson for her to learn.

  12. Notafan says:

    Can we talk about Joshua Jackson’s interview tomorrow? He is the best.

  13. Fleur says:

    My guess would be Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, since my understanding is that she’s anti vax for children?

  14. Rise & Shine says:

    Yay Pete and Chasten! Am so very happy for them. Congratulations and love to them both and the new little sweet addition to their family.
