    I don’t know why many assume Covid has been vanquished or something… I am still wearing a mask in several places..

    Off topic. Gina Lollobrigida passed away, my mum was such a fan!

    Rip ‘most beautiful woman in the world’.

    • Zazzoo says:

      I think it’s more that it’s just a fact of life now, and it’s not very serious if you’re current in your vaccinations.

      • Kokiri says:

        Considering we still don’t, & won’t, know the long term affects that’s a pretty cavalier attitude.
        You do know some people still don’t have a sense of taste or smell?
        That’s brain damage. Long term brain damage.

        Wear a freaking mask. It’s pretty easy.

      • MrsBanjo says:

        That is such factually incorrect and dangerous thinking. Thousands are still dying daily and that includes vaxxed people. The long-term damage to bodies that we know about is horrifying and that doesn’t even include what we don’t know.

        That flippant belief is why it’s still going strong.

      • Lizzie Bathory says:

        We had a very small Thanksgiving (5 people). Three got COVID. Two had severe fevers for several days (like, shaking so badly they couldn’t walk at times). Everyone was fully vaccinated & boosted. It was pretty scary.

      • Sshark_29 says:

        Actually quite the contrary. I spoke with an epidemiologist that works with me, she said they don’t know what the long term & or short term effects might b e.
        Case in point, a gal I went to high school with was vaccinated & got Covid-19. Fast forward a month she’s not getting better, she was diagnosed with aggressive ALS which she has no family history. So 6 months later she can no longer move & breathing is getting difficult so she made the decision to use doctor assisted suicide, we’re in Oregon it’s legal here. So my perfectly healthy very fit with no underlying issues friend is now gone. I should mention she was 48. OHSU local teaching hospital now has her brain to study & all the doctors I work with say they can’t rule out Covid-19 as the cause. She leaves a 10 year old daughter behind.
        HPV wasn’t great when first discovered but just recently they’ve linked it to cancer.
        Wear your mask & be safe no one is immune.

      • pottymouth pup says:

        I wouldn’t exactly say that it’s not very serious if you’re current on vaccinations. Unfortunately the mask holes/anti-vaxxers are helping along mutations leading to nastier new variants/sub-variants that have a much higher R0 value (higher transmissibility) which decreases the efficacy of the vaccines. This is leading to more healthcare resource utilization, including a higher hospital admission rate, that poses a threat to the general public.

        Right now, the UK is reporting thousands more deaths than usual both directly from COVID and overtaxed/mismanaged NHS (some, but not all, of which is related to COVID)

      • MoonTheLoon says:

        I’m hesitant to say it’s “not very serious,” after my family’s experience. Mum and I live together, both of us are triple vaxxed. Neither of us are social butterflies, though I do go out almost every weekend. Both of us have auto immune issues. Her boss (way more of a social butterfly) passed it to Mum. Eventually, it got to me. Mum was down with fever for almost an entire week. She’s had breathing issues and is still getting some lung pain. It’s been nearly a month since onset- we both are still very fatigued and moderately congested. My sense of smell and taste is mostly restored, she says hers is on and off. And those body aches that lasted for days, oof! I decided during my episode that the sole goal of COVID is to destroy the human enduring it. Anyone who has the temerity to downplay it to my face takes their lives into their hands. COVID is no joke.

      • Andrea says:

        Two years later I still have tinnitus, I still smell gasoline randomly and smell smoke regularly, I have a scar from my Covid rash and occasionally still have nerve symptoms like numbness, tingling in my extremities.

      • Beana says:

        Just survived my second round of COVID. Got the first strain in 2020 despite heroic efforts not to. Got vaxxed and all my boosters. I still mask at the store, on public transit, etc.

        I have chronic tinnitus from the first round and lingering lung pain from the second. Know plenty of people who died from it. Who knows what we’ll learn about how it impacts lifespan. Unfortunately, my baby got it too – at two and five years old. My biggest worry is how it may impact him long-term. Humans really suck.

      • Anonymous says:

        I agree with MTL, I 100% felt like COVID was trying to destroying me, I had to decide to live and fight to live.

        I had little to no exposure and was so careful since the beginning, then an employer insisted on an in-person interview for my final round. She lied about her exposure and that she got it (though she told my reference the truth and that’s how I later found out). 5 of my relatives caught it as well. Every single person was as fully vaxxed and boosted as allowed (very wide age span, so not everyone was eligible for everything yet). I won’t go into my relatives’ health, as it’s their business. But not everyone is OK. Especially me, with tinnitus, numbness, tingling, neurological issues, EBV off the charts, etc. it is NOT good. Prayers that everything is going to be fantastic.

        I also had major health problems from the vaccine/booster and will probably not be able to get any more. So I’d say the more open minds the better, because we really don’t know what time will tell, this is all new to us and we need to respect everyone’s experiences with this and support one another. As the person said about HPV, we may not know yet. Same with EBV, which they’re now finding isn’t just causing “mono”, but also is hugely linked to ME/CFS and MS. And the CDC and FDA just had to announce a study on the Pfizer booster for over-65s and stroke link.

        So stay safe, and Love and light and good health to everyone!

      • McGee says:

        Adding to Kokiro:

        I came down with it mid December. We missed two weeks of income, and my hearing has been adversely affected.

        We are lucky that we could absorb the loss of income, and that we are not dependent upon showing up for a shift to keep our job…upon which housing, medical insurance and groceries are dependent. I would hate to be flippant with those whose livelihoods and roofs depend on our being thoughtful community members.

      • Caseysmom says:

        I’m up to date on vaccines and boosters. I got COVID at Thanksgiving. I took Paxlovid and felt better. A few days later, I was hospitalized for nearly a week with a near fatal asthma attack. Except, I had never been diagnosed with asthma prior to COVID. Now, I’m in pulmonary rehab. I’m 49 and most of my cohort looks to be in their 30s. COVID is real, present, and drastically impacting the lives of people of all ages. Oh and I now have a very serious case of asthma that requires the use of a strong steroid inhaler twice/day.

      • og bella says:

        After my mother’s second bout of Covid (vaxed and boosted) she is now dealing with crippling congestive heart failure. No, not innocuous and just a harmless fact of life.

    • mtos says:

      Covid is definitely still going strong. My office got hit hard the week before xmas. One of my co-workers who wears a mask everyday and has since covid started, caught it and his elderly parents caught it from him. His father is not doing well. Four people in the office (that we know of) had covid. Of those four they passed it to immediate family members. We all still need to be careful, especially during socially “busy” times of the year.

      • Brenda says:

        I have empathy for people who just don’t have the bandwidth to do precautions anymore, but, how much bandwidth someone has really doesn’t change the facts of medical science.

        I saw a patient who, having gotten COVID the third time, literally couldn’t find her toothbrush in her one bedroom apartment.

        Guess what? I don’t have meds for that. It was very sad. She’s young and smart. Finding a toothbrush in her small apartment was too much for her. Oh wow.

    • Desdemona says:

      In my country, masks are still compulsory in clinics, hospitals, pharmacies and other of the sort….

  2. Izzy says:

    “Wow, who could have predicted this would happen?”
    – Lots of stupid people, probably

  3. Case says:

    Given they were all sitting together on Tuesday, sure seems like wearing masks on Sunday for those who have not (yet) tested positive would’ve been wise. But no, we live in a society where it’s all precautions all the time or we just throw caution to the wind. Our lack of happy medium continues to hospitalize and kill people.

  4. HeyKay says:

    Few of the celebs are wearing masks anymore.
    Close and enclosed large gathering, and what did they think?
    It is not over.

    • Jamie says:

      President Biden said himself that the pandemic is over so who’s lying?

      • MoonTheLoon says:

        This is why I’m looking at the data of hospitalisations and adding 10% for margin of error. I’ve lived long enough to know that believing what you see tends to be more reliable.

      • McGee says:

        A disingenuous comment, since he went on to clarify what he meant.

  5. Concern Fae says:

    Karina Longworth, Rian Johnson’s wife and host of the excellent You Must Remember This podcast, tweeted that they were required to provide negative Covid tests. Apparently, we’re at the point where instant on site testing is also required.

    • Lady Baden-Baden says:

      Not the point I know but I had NO idea they were married!! Lucky Rian Johnson!!

      • Jeannine Pope says:

        As far as Balmain’s collection…it’s nice to know for rich people that conspicuous consumption is back.

    • Little Red says:

      They are married to each other?!?!? Wow.

    • BeanieBean says:

      Well I’ll be darned! That’s one of my favorite podcasts. No idea who he is, though I just googled the pair of them.

  6. lucy2 says:

    Was anyone wearing a mask at the GGs? Large indoor gatherings are all super spreaders right now. My mother wears a mask almost everywhere and just got it, luckily very mild. Almost everyone is acting like it’s done. I’m usually the only one in a mask anywhere.

  7. Who ARE These People? says:

    Kaiser’s photo choice: is she hoping Colin Farrell transmitted it to his pal?

  8. Twin Falls says:

    Really Casio?

  9. Kokiri says:

    That Britney article, the media should be ashamed of themselves.
    Still framing her like she’s has a mental illness.
    She never did, I repeat, she never did.
    What she had was PPD, & needed help dealing with the press, her babies. What she got was abused & tormented for 13 years.
    And it’s still happening.

    She was upset about being recorded, she asked them to stop & they refused.
    She did nothing wrong.

    • HeyKay says:

      People seem hell bent on harassing Britney.
      Vulture like, they seem to want to bring about their version of her self-destructing.
      I also think she had PPD, and 2 pregnancies close together.

      If I was in Britneys position, I’d move into The Dakota in New York.
      The entire building is full of wealth and a few celebs.
      Doorman, security and if she’d change her look and style she might be able to go out and about a bit.
      Btw, a**hole move by that grifter Hubby to get up and and leave her alone.

    • mtos says:

      100%. She has PPD which they never treated her for and now has PTSD. The public continuing to harass her is so damaging to her mental health. It’s like people try to push her so they can go “see, she’s crazy”. Just leave her alone. She is not a zoo animal. She should be able to eat out with her husband and not be bothered. All she has wanted is freedom and once she gets it people treat her this way.

    • Concern Fae says:

      Sorry, but no. Mentally ill myself, even hospitalized! Open question whether Britney’s condition would have been disabling if she had had a normal life and never been in show business, but she certainly qualifies as mentally ill now.

      Responses like yours show why people hide their diagnoses. If Britney needs to not be mentally ill for you to support her, what hope is there for acceptance for the people in your life who are mentally ill. Because there certainly are some.

    • ChillinginDC says:

      There’s no way that Britney does not have a mental illness. She doesn’t have to share it with people and people need to know they can support her and just realize she is not going to be the same Britney they recall

    • Kebbie says:

      How could you possibly know whether she has a mental illness or not?

  10. Chantal says:

    Large gatherings are still a petri dish for covid. Some people want to pretend it went away and isn’t still contagious and dangerous.

    That was a great article about the screen writer for M3GAN, Akela Cooper. Congrats on her success! It was interesting to read how TPTB tried to force this Black woman into addressing societal ills that weren’t pertinent into her body of work. This is one of the reasons and examples for the backlash against everything “woke”. Why isn’t this required of non Black writers? Anyway, I still want to see M3GAN and will definitely check out her other work.

    Lol -the article about Brad Pitt being Mayor of Hollywood (below the one about Akela Cooper in GAWKER)) is hilarious and shady AH! Ouch ! He’d better get his PR person on the phone STAT bc the article basically and correctly implies that his career is on life support.

  11. HeyKay says:

    I’d fine with Brad Pitts career being over. He is awful, we know it now.
    He does seem to have a hide of steel, he just goes about as if he has zero shame.

    Kevin Spacey was papped someplace, and made a statement along the lines of
    “I’m not rebuilding my life. My life is fine.” G*d awful, vile people.

  12. EBS says:

    There is some excellent FAFO Jeremy Clarkson news.

    • Julia K says:

      He only apologized because he was losing jobs imo. Guess all those emails and letters we sent paid off.

    • M says:

      Hardly a punishment from Amazon though. His farm show was already ending, and the Grand Tour episodes will run into 2024. They just said no new commissions. That doesn’t nullify the ones currently happening. He will still be paid all of this year. And make no mistake, he has a following and will end up somewhere.

  13. Dana says:

    The Shakira song should be a bigger story. It’s taken over TikTok in the best way. The song is a massive hit and she spills tea. Her word play in it is outstanding.

    • Kath says:

      I know, that song was amazing and I was just like “Go Shakira” throughout the whole thing. And Pique’s attempts to hit back have been pathetic at most

  14. LOL8 says:

    Why hasn’t domestic abuser Brad Pitt got COVID considering all these abuser applogists were all over kissing his backside

  15. J says:

    Shakira is my hero.

  16. Saschafrom76 says:

    Disable people have been screaming from the rooftops for three years now it’s not over. Keep taking care of each other. Keep wearing masks indoors. It’s not just a Covid deniers anymore whos not caring about each other. It’s pretty much everybody who is abled. The people who are chronically, ill and disabled are still socially, isolated, still stuck in their homes, still unable to get work, still being left out of the pandemic stimuluses still paying more with inflation due to benefits not being appropriately increased. You guys will have to look to each other for pity because the rest of us are like you’re asking for it.

    • MoonTheLoon says:

      Pretty much. I’m sick of the denial and selfishness. That’s part of what got my family sick- the denial of one infecting another who had no other choice.

    • Case says:

      Thank you. As a disabled person who was incredibly fortunate to be able to work from home, 2020 was the easiest year of the pandemic for me. There was a sense of unity and most people were on the same page about safety precautions. The years that have followed have broken my heart and my spirit. So many people I respected pretend everything is back to normal, while my life is still exactly the same as the beginning of the pandemic. The only difference is, now when I go out I’m 1) less safe because probably 5% of people wear masks by me, and 2) I’m under constant social pressure to travel again, go to bars again, go to big parties again. I’m tired of being asked when they already know the answer, and I’m tired of people acting as though I’m being dramatic. It’s a lonely and stressful existence for chronically ill and disabled people.

  17. Petalstoo says:

    I’m fully vaxxed and up to date, and I still wear N95 at work, never eat indoors at any restaurant (I just had dinner with extended family over the weekend and ate my dinner alone on the front porch while the others ate at the dining table). I personally know someone who has a double lung transplant, someone with autoimmune disease, someone on the waitlist for an organ transplant so he cannot be ill if he is called to go in for surgery, and I don’t eat indoors at work or restaurants. I would rather wear the stupid mask than risk catching it as an asymptomatic carrier and give covid to anyone. I’m abled and healthy, amd I have not forgotten the very vulnerable in my circle and greater community.

    • MoonTheLoon says:

      As a disabled person, I thank you. 🙏🏼

    • Christine says:

      Word, Petalstoo. I am still masked any time I am indoors, other than at my house or my Mom’s house.

    • Grace says:

      Same….and I’m a teacher, for adults. I am the ONLY teacher wearing a mask and NONE of my students wear one. It feels stressful every minute with the students (who I love). I have a friend with a transplant, an elderly mother, and an immune-compromised family member. I mask for THEm and for myself. It makes me crazy the selfishness and ignorance around covid.

  18. L4Frimaire says:

    I got Covid after Thanksgiving and a bunch of friends/co-workers are out with it now. It’s still out there. I’ve been invited to a huge gathering at the end of the month and can’t really get out of it but I’m wearing my mask if the huge number invited show up.

  19. HeyKay says:

    Off topic: Rupert Murdoch, that slimy no good that calls himself a newspaperman, is in the news with his latest lady. He is 91 or 93 and divorced from Jerry Hall less than 6 months. The new one looks very, very much like Jerry.

    Who divorces Jerry Hall? She was too good for him anyhow.

    • MoonTheLoon says:

      Can’t be that great if she married him knowing who he was. Which I’m sure she did. Because *everyone* knows who he is. I felt bad for her after she divorced Mick. But I lost respect when she started dating this Cryptkeeper.

    • Coco says:

      Is Jerry Hall really too good for him. I mean she married Rupert Murdoch knowing full well what type of horrible person he was.

  20. HeyKay says:

    Well, I dunno, I’m Team Jerry Hall after how Mick treated her.
    And I do think Jerry could have done better than Murdoch. I should have phrased it that way.
    But you are correct she did marry him, her choice.

    Murdoch is in his 90’s, and he is awful, AND due to his money he is still able to go from one woman to the next replacement in less than 6 months.
    Maybe that’s what is grinding my gears.

  21. Mel says:


    Yesterday I had a blow up with my sister because I don’t want to bring my 92yr old , asthmatic , Mother home from the Caribbean without my Mom getting vaccinated first. She said we can slap an N95 mask on her, like that alone will prevent her from getting sick. People think this is over or it should be taken likely. No, it’ s not over and it’s not to be taken lightly.

  22. Greeneyedgirl says:

    Am I the only one who hasn’t gotten covid yet? I am vaccinated and up to date on my boosters.

    • Emf999 says:

      Until a couple of weeks ago, my husband and I were there with you. Triple boosted and while we did not wear masks publicly, we avoided crowds etc.
      Went to hair dresser. About halfway through my appointment, my hairdresser started to cough and said she had had a bad sore throat all day. I just knew at that moment that I’d caught it. Sure enough four days later, I felt like crap and got an instant and deep pink line. Three weeks later, my husband is still testing positive. I’m negative. Both of us took Paxlovid. We are both exhausted and having random weird symptoms – like two days ago, I was sooo itchy.

      Please stay safe and well – I hope you remain one of the outliers who never get it.

      • Greeneyedgirl says:

        @EMF I wish you both a full and continuous recovery! Admittedly I do not wear masks publicly unless Iin very crowded/congested places which is rare, I still carry a mask with me in my purse). And like you, I avoid crowded places if I can…but tbh I did that pre covid also. I have bad anxiety and crowds make me nervous. But I never touch my face, and am almost obsessive over hand washing/sanitizing. In November I for sure thought I was going to come down with it, I was getting a facial, and the receptionist was coughing up a lung. A few days later, the spa called saying someone tested positive. I was taking two at home tests a day and none came up positive. I was told by a friend who is a nurse that with the new variants they can’t be detected via the nose as easily, so to swab your throat (which I did). I feel incredibly lucky not to have gotten it yet, I hope I never do. Is it just dumb luck? A genetic component? So many things we still do not know about covid yet. Wear masks in crowded indoor spaces is the only advice I have

    • Blue Nails Betty says:

      I, too, have not gotten Covid due to both luck and hard work. I’m so grateful for that because I have mild lung issues and am terrified of adding covid to the mix. I am fully vaxxed/boosted in the hopes I don’t end up in a hospital if I do get covid.

      I’m a rideshare driver and the rideshare platforms foolishly removed mask mandates. However, I am still following all preventive protocols.

      I wear a mask all day long. The only time it is removed during a shift is during a break and I’m outside of my car.

      I still disinfect my car every day. Sidenote: common sense says drivers should be cleaning/disinfecting their cars however, most don’t. If the inside of a rideshare car/taxi isn’t clean then it is also not disinfected. Also, we drive people from all over the world and from all walks of life. You should always wear a mask in our cars.

      I wear gloves so when I’m putting luggage in my car I’m not actually touching the handles.

      I do not go out socially. Period. I would love to sit down and enjoy a meal at a restaurant or go to a movie but I can’t take that risk. Even if I go through a drive thru after my shift is done I put on my mask before I get to the window.

      It is beyond ridiculous that anyone thinks the pandemic is over.

      I’m going to a (non-covid related) memorial for my friend’s mom on Monday. It is my first social gathering since the pandemic started. I have no idea how many people will be there but I do know most of them won’t be masked up.

      People who are cavalier about covid do not care about themselves, much less anyone else.
