The Only Reason Mindy Sings Is Because Ashley Park Can

According to Elite Daily, Mindy wasn’t going to be a singer until Ashley Park took the role. After Ashley, who was nominated for a Tony Award in 2018 after originating the role of Gretchen Wieners in the musical adaptation of Mean Girls, decided to play Mindy, she said the creator of the series, Darren Star, asked if she would mind singing in the show. 

“He asked, ‘As we’re writing the rest of the series, would you be OK if Mindy sang?'” Ashley explained. “He saw me in Mean Girls on Broadway, twice he says. And he was like, ‘How could we not include singing for you?’ And of course I was so excited.”


Lucas Bravo Used to Work as a Chef

All of that fancy knife technique isn’t just for show! In an interview, Lucas Bravo told Entertainment Weekly that he used to work as a chef. “A few years ago, I was working in this bar and one of the sous chefs left,” Lucas explained. “I told them, ‘I don’t think I can learn anything more at the bar. Can I assist you?’ And he accepted. So for two months, I was basically a sous chef and I had a blast. It was an open kitchen so customers could see us, but it was a lot of fun.”

Ashley Park and Lily Collins are Best Friends IRL

In an interview with Glamour UK, Lily revealed that Ashley and herself are real life besties. “It’s such an amazing experience to meet someone as an adult, when you’re an adult, and gravitate towards them so strongly,” Lily said about Ashley. “Like a friendship soulmate.”

She continued, “Ashley makes me not question and doubt who I am.” We couldn’t love this pair more if we tried!

Sex and the City and Emily in Paris Have the Same Costume Designer

There’s a reason why Carrie Bradshaw and Emily Cooper are both fashion icons, Patricia Field styled them! Though she did not return for the Sex and the City reboot, And Just Like That…, Patricia worked as the costume designer on SATC for all six seasons and for both films.

Lily Collins Made Emily a SATC Fan

In a 2020 interview with E! News, Lily Collins revealed that she believes Emily is a fan of Sex and the City. “I think that Emily, like myself, grew up watching Sex and the City,” she said. “I think she really loved Carrie Bradshaw as well as the other characters and probably had like pictures saved of what Carrie wore at certain times, when she was traveling, or different attitudes or attributes that Carrie had.”

She continued, “I think they both love what they do. They both love to work and very much incorporate those life experiences into their work.”


Emily’s Mackinac Island Story Doesn’t Add Up

In season two, episode six, being the Michigan-native that she is, Emily says that, when she was younger, she went on a Vespa fudge tour with her mom around Mackinac Island. 

The thing is, vespas aren’t allowed on Mackinac Island. According to Michigan’s state website, on the island, people are “limited to transportation of horse and buggy, bicycle or foot.”


Ashley Had a Wardrobe Malfunction on Set

In an interview with Elite Daily, Ashley Park shared that while she was wearing a white latex dress on set, she had a wardrobe mishap. “We were filming all night—oh my gosh, this is the opposite of the glam world—I remember getting up, and because it was so cold and then warm and all this stuff, my latex dress just split,” she said. “And we had one more shot to film, so I couldn’t have a split dress. I remember Lily’s dressers and my dressers just trying to duct tape it from the inside, and we were like, ‘This is quite funny.'”


The Production Designer Rebuilt the Apartment Staircase

When the cast returned for season two of the series, the production designer Anne Seibel told E! News in an interview that she had to rebuild the iconic staircase in Emily and Gabriel’s apartment building. “When we came there, I said, ‘My god, they repainted the whole thing inside,'” she shared. “They must have made money on us.”

As a solution, Anne says she “built the stairs.” She explained, “I gave more stairs for the apartment to shoot in. It was fun for me.”


Rimowa and Dior Paid to Be Included in Season Two

According to Forbes, Chopard, Rimowa and Dior for Vespa had products written into the storyline for product placement. In an interview, Karen Duffy, the co-founder of wilyfoXX, a female-founded boutique agency focused on marketing, communication and business development, explained that “brands can own whole episodes as featured players like Rimowa in Emily in Paris season two.”

Emily in Paris season two is now available on Netflix.

How Emma Stone Reacted After Andrew Garfield Lied About His Spider-Man Return




Andrew Garfield Says Emma Stone Is the “Greatest”

Andrew Garfield had Emma Stone‘s Spidey senses tingling.

The Amazing Spider-Man actor recently revealed that he lied to his former co-star about his appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home.

As fans may know by now, Garfield and Spider-Man alum Tobey Maguire teamed up with current Peter Parker Tom Holland in the 2021 film. However, leading up to the movie’s release, the stars were very tight-lipped about their surprise cameos. In fact, Garfield wouldn’t even tell Stone, who played Gwen Stacy in the Amazing Spider-Man films. 

“Emma kept on texting me,” Garfield, who dated Stone for four years, recalled on Josh Horowitz‘s Happy Sad Confused podcast. “She was like, ‘Are you in this new Spider-Man film?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know what you’re talking about.'”

“She was like, ‘Shut up, just tell me!'” Garfield continued, laughing as he told Horowitz he kept up the bit until the film’s release.

So, when the movie came out in December, how did Stone react to Garfield’s lie? As he told Horowitz, “She saw it and she was like, ‘You’re a jerk.'”

Though they’ve both moved on romantically, it seem as though Stone, 33, and Garfield, 38, are still friends following their breakup in 2015.

At the time, a source told E! News, “There is definitely still love for each other there. They remain close and are on good terms.”

And that sentiment has continued over the years. In a 2016 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Garfield named Stone as the one actor or actress he’d have with him on a desert island. “She’s all right,” he told the outlet. “She can come.”

That same year, in an interview with Vogue, Stone described Garfield as, “Someone I still love very much.”

And in late 2021, the Tick, Tick… Boom! actor couldn’t help but gush to Variety about his time on the set of The Amazing Spider-Man films, calling the experience “beautiful.”

Spider-Man: No Way Home is in theaters now.

Pete Davidson Reportedly Beefs Up Security Following Kanye’s “Eazy” Diss




Kanye is in the news pretty much every day now due to his seemingly turbulent relationship with his soon to be ex-wife Kim Kardashian. Ye recently took shots at Kims new boyfriend, Pete Davidson, on his latest track with the game “Eazy.”

In the song, Kanye raps: “God saved me from that crash/Just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s ass.”

Julia Fox participated in “EAZY” it is in particular her that we hear saying “WHO?” after Kanye said “God saved me from the accident, just so I could beat Pete Davidson’s ass” ✅

— Donda Times (@dondatimes) January 15, 2022

It seems as if Pete Davidson isn’t taking Ye’s bars lightly. Apparently he has hired more security just in case Kanye wants to make good on his promise.

Actually, according to Rap Radar, friends of Pete Davidson said he’s not worried about Kanye, he’s worried about Kanye fans, and thats why he’s beefed up his security.

“Pete isn’t worried about Kanye, but he is concerned about the massive fanbase that Kanye has. His devoted followers listen to his songs and act upon them. That’s why Pete is now using security,” sources told Rap Radar.

Sources added that “Until recently Pete never had security with him when he was out and about, even when he was engaged to Ariana Grande. But dating Kim (Kardashian) is a totally different level of fame. Pete is now a superstar, which comes with a price. As much as he still wants to be low-key and hang with his friends, the reality of his situation has changed.”

“Pete isn’t taking any chances. Whenever he is out with Kim, they use her security. But now Pete needs his own security when he is out alone,” one of Pete’s friends said. “He is still Pete, but now Pete comes with a 6’1, 220 lbs security guard.”

Let’s just hope Ye keeps it on wax.
