Between dealing with kids, dealing with work, and dealing with Take Your Kids to Work Day, you may have missed some of the most insane things celebrities did this week. Well, have no fear — because Kashmere is here with his finger on the pulse and his eyes on every Instagram account of anyone worth talking about. From Oscar winners to reality TV royalty, to even actually royalty; here are the craziest stories going on this week. Welcome to our newest series, “Did You Hear? With Kashmere!”Kashmere (also known as Danny Murphy) is a comedian, writer, and pop culture connoisseur (despite not really knowing how to spell connoisseur). He currently writes for Betches and Marie Claire and has also been featured in Glamour, Seventeen and Town & Country. When he’s not drinking red wine or iced coffee while watching Bravo, he’s performing around New York and hosting PASS THE AUX at The Stonewall Inn and DO I SEND IT? at Branded Saloon. Follow his fake reality show AKA his Instagram stories, @kashmeredanny.
Alright, before we get started on some gossip, I need to make sure everyone has their toasted bagel and large iced coffee? Do we? Because trust me, if anyone knows the power of a sugar-induced-hangover from one too many margaritas, it’s me. Isn’t it cruel that Cinco de Mayo hit us on a Sunday? That’s why I just advocate to have chips, guacs and a frozen marg every week to emotionally prepare my body. Okay, take a bite of your carbs and let’s dive in (Shallow style).
Meghan Markle Is Just Gave Birth (It’s A Boy!). While I’m typing this sentence, the Duchess of Sussex is pushing out baby number one for the couple. And right when I finished it, she gave birth — or at least, my push notifications on my phone told me so. This couldn’t come at a more perfect time, because maybe everyone will be too distracted by an adorable little kid to remember Will and Kate’s drama? I hope they know that like Christina Aguleria in her song Fighter, I… REMEMBER. What do we think on names? I’m assuming something very unsweetened hot tea with lemon, like Mark or someone from Love, Actually — but I totally wouldn’t hate if they went ahead and named the baby Kashmere 2.0.

Game of Thrones Set Designer May Have Majorly Messed Up. When you’re preparing one of the most beloved and watched shows in history, the pressure is on. You’re stressed and anxious, and definitely need some coffee to get yourself in the proper mindset to get the job done. But it seems that someone over on the Game of Thrones set didn’t finish their Grande Soy Vanilla Latte No Whip With An Extra Shot, because Twitter quickly discovered that there was a straight up coffee cup in one of the scenes. I’m just saying: this would never have happened during filming of an episode of The Good Wife. See the picture for yourself on Cosmopolitan.
It’s the End of the Night for Busy Tonight. The adorable and fun and celebrity-filled talk show will no longer be airing on E! starting May 16th. Philipps obviously announced the news to her Instagram Stories audience, and also said that she plans to shop the show around to another network. I would love for this to happen, not only because Busy is hysterical and well-connected to get some of the best guests to come on, but also because I feel like I need to somehow drink margaritas in a nightgown with Busy and it seems like my only option. Maybe in the meantime she can start up a podcast? Or just get drinks with me. Read more about the cancellation on Deadline.
Flight Delays for the Highly-Anticipated Girls Trip 2. Girls Trip was a hit. It raked in money, memes, and some pretty legit nominations. Not to mention lifting up the breakout star Tiffany Haddish to A-list level. Which is why we’re confused… why isn’t everyone running to the studio, grapefruit in hand, to make the sequel? Haddish made comments recently that she wrote the script and everyone is on board but the studio, but her team said she was kidding… but something seems up here. Could the studio truly be having second guesses about making this sequel? Come on, we finished the Avengers season and we’re literally getting a movie about Pikachu. LET US HAVE A SECOND GIRLS TRIP. Her full comments are available on PageSix.
Empire Costars Want Jussie Smollett Back On Show. Remember the whirlwind that was the Jussie Smollett case? It seemed to flip-flop more than a tourists Old Navy sandal in Times Square. Now, there seems to be no major changes going on with it besides everything being dropped and us just deciding to thank u, next the entire thing… which still seems odd. Regardless, Jussie’s breakout role on Empire is still existing on paper, but the executives have zero plans to have him step foot on set. His costars hate this plan and are trying to fight for him to get his career and life back. My personal opinion? No one has watched Empire since season one, let them bring anyone onto the set and film. Check out the rest of the story on TMZ.
