This morning, Lainey wrote about Satchel and Jackson Lee, who will be the Golden Globes ambassadors. The Globes are my favorite awards because they are freewheeling and include TV and movies, as well as drink. It relaxes people (or in a room full of actors, gives them permission to act like they’re more cowardly, you know?). I even adore the tradition of using famous people’s children to award prizes, a nod to the ‘family business’ aspect that many of them enjoy (while pretending not to enjoy it) . If you look back, the list goes on: Dakota Johnson in 2006 and her mother Melanie Griffith in 1975. Laura Dern in 1982, Freddie Prinze Jr. in 1996, Rumer Willis in 2009 – it’s like a time capsule. And I wonder if this is a job that people are campaigning for – as parents ask, or does the Hollywood Foreign Press Association come up with a list of names and go from there?

Jennifer Meyer’s eponymous jewelry line was covered by Forbes this week in a story focused on small businesses that pivot during COVID. It’s an interesting subject, but there isn’t a single mention of her father being former Hollywood power player Ron Meyer and that she kicked this off when she was married to Toby Maguire. “I started my business without any prior experience in jewelry, nor in business for that matter! I hammered the curb, learned as I went, and I feel so lucky to have received the mentorship of truly remarkable people. She also talks about using social media as her primary sales tool, but a huge plus is that her famous friends (like Jennifer Aniston, who she covered an issue with The Hollywood Reporter with), Courteney Cox and Kate Hudson wore her rooms. since day one, before having accounts. Not to mention his connections with A-list stylists, who can connect you to opportunities in movies, magazines, and red carpet. Getting a celebrity to wear your product is usually a big step for a small brand and it’s not even covered here. Ultimately, the product has to be well made and sell, but she started miles before a regular contractor. Ignoring this isn’t much different from a Kardashian calling itself “self-made”.
“We are not regular parents, we are nice parents.”
With SATC go to HBO Max, Entourage can’t be far behind, right? Some of the guys have a podcast together and scheduling wouldn’t be, uh, a problem. I’m sure this conversation is going on. Can you imagine the silly stories they come up with? Arie invests in Quibi! Vince agrees to shoot a movie on Mars with Elon Musk (which for sure will be a cameo)! Johnny Drama wants to play Tiger King! Turtle gets into a feud with Logan Paul!
Speaking of rebooting, the SATC the tweets were top notch.

It seems like every other day there’s a headline about James Van Der Beek and his big family moving to Texas – is there an HGTV show coming up behind that?
This is a baby announcement but I’m more focused on what Emma Roberts is wearing. The orange dress with the orange shoes – it works. It’s fresh and dressy and I like that the dress and the shoes don’t exactly match in tone. I think mixing shades of the same color (like turquoise on cobalt or plum on lavender) will be great for spring. Or maybe the spring of 2022, given the way things are going.
