“Walmart brought the cast of ‘Mean Girls’ together for a commercial” links

The Mean Girls cast – minus Rachel McAdams – reunited for a Walmart commercial. Apparently, McAdams was asked and she just turned it down flat. [Socialite Life]
Priyanka Chopra looked gorgeous in Mumbai. [GFY]
Oprah dropped her “favorite things” list of 2023. [Buzzfeed]
Sophie Turner and “matrescence.” [LaineyGossip]
Why does the Ted Lasso doll have such dark hair? [Tom & Lorenzo]
Speaker Mike Johnson is probably broke?? [Jezebel]
Kendall Jenner’s leather trench coat looks weird in California! [JustJared]
Kate Hudson shared a rare family photo for Halloween. [Hollywood Life]
Quantum Leap takes on the LA Riots. [Seriously OMG]
I disagree with this review of The Gilded Age – it’s not “gloriously bad,” it’s just glorious. It’s fun, stupid, low-stakes and utterly enjoyable. [Pajiba]

    I loved that commercial way more than I thought I would. I wish Rachel McAdams was in it, but it was still pretty great. I wish it was longer! Or a whole movie! lol

    • Lemons says:

      Right? I thought it would be terrible, but it was really well done.

    • Lux says:

      No Regina George and Janis Ian????? I’m sure Aaron Samuels was not busy either!

      Rachel needed to be in this. She can’t possibly believe that wasn’t her most iconic role (Notebook was overrated) and she did Eurovision or whatever that was!?! Time to return that high horse…

    Commercial gold lol. ❤️ Missy E

    Oh that was cute. I may have to watch Mean Girls one of these days.
    As for Mike Johnson’s supposed penury, I think his lack of accounts in his name is a result of his finding a way to hide is money & income from the IRS as well as the public disclosure required of politicians.

    • bettyrose says:

      You’ve never seen Mean Girls? Definitely a must see just for the cultural reference. You need to take it with a large grain of salt, of course. I personally don’t think it’s nearly as good as Clueless, more tone deaf in some ways, and way less self aware about privilege, but Tina Fey is a fantastic writer and the entire cast really nails it (makes you sad for the how much potential LL once had, but we’ve all moved beyond that by now).

    It’s very possible that Mike Johnson is in debt, but I think it’s unlikely that he doesn’t have a checking account or a bank account of some kind. His salary should be direct deposit – but, even if he’s given a check, he still has to go somewhere to deposit it or cash it and I can’t imagine him trying to pay his electric bill with cash. The article says he has to disclose an account that’s greater than $1,000 – so maybe by the time he pays all his bills and loan payments, he doesn’t have more than $1,000, so he doesn’t have to disclose it.

    • ML says:

      The fact that Skkkalise and Johnson, both from Louisiana, have such little money is really odd. That doesn’t sound right to me. And it makes them at best even more vulnerable to corruption if true.

      • Josephine says:

        My first thought as well, but let’s face it, any republicant can be bought because it’s all a transaction and scam for them. regardless of his current worth, he’ll be super wealthy soon. and my guess is he’s hiding money because he is an entitled, conservative, “christian” “man” who probably doesn’t believe that he needs to pay taxes.

    • salmonpuff says:

      I mean, one of his first actions was to try to take money from the IRS…I could be wrong, but it sure looks like he’s hiding money.

      • Cate says:

        I agree. My guess is the non-profit that’s listed as his wife’s source of income is not entirely on the up and up….hope the IRS gets on auditing them before Johnson cuts their funding!

    I love Gilded Age (I’m a sucker for anything Old New York), but Louisa Jacobson is so bad that it’s a bit distracting, or maybe the talent surrounding her is too good?

  6. Immaculate Misconception says:

    Lindsay is looking really good! I’m so happy for her that she seems back on track.

    • Sue says:

      Came here to say the same. I hope she’s doing well and is happy and healthy. Like Britney, I think she’s another one who had a vulture-like family that just wanted to live off of her success. I hope she’s found peace and stability in her marriage and in motherhood.

    • Talia says:

      Oh, I had the total opposite reaction! I thought everyone else looked great in the ad (Gretchen Wieners has not aged!) , but poor Lindsay has done so much to herself she looks like an entirely different person now, and unfortunately for her it’s not an improvement.

      • Fabiola says:

        I thought everyone looked great just like they did when they were young. Looks like Lindsay has turned her life around. Happy for her.

    One day fetch will happen!

  8. ML says:

    Priyanka looks really good in Mumbai! I love both looks.

  9. Jen says:

    Priyanka’s outfit in the first photo of that post made me think “Halloween mummy, but make it couture.”

  10. D says:

    How can Amanda Seyfried look exactly the same?????

  11. NaTalia says:

    I loved the ad. I thought the Plus days were for this past Wednesday and not next Wednesday. I was trying to shop this week. 🙂

    Priyanka looks beautiful.

    Oprah- My dogs have that water bowl. They love it.

    Gilded Age is perfection.
