Audience members at the Drew Barrymore Show got kicked out for their WGA pins

Audience members at the Drew Barrymore Show got kicked out for their WGA pins
Drew Barrymore took to her Instagram on Sunday to announce her decision to bring back her talk show, despite the ongoing Hollywood strikes. Although Drew is a SAG-AFTRA member, her hosting duties fall under a separate contract, and thus she is not breaking any SAG-AFTRA strike rules. As for whether the move is breaking WGA strike rules, at first glance it seems complicated. Late night talk shows stopped production as soon as the writers strike began in early May ? part of why hosts started the Strike Force Five podcast to raise money for their writers ? while daytime talk shows like The View have carried on, claiming they?re simply not using their union writers. So perhaps the opinion that matters most right now is that of the WGA itself, and they say that The Drew Barrymore Show returning now is unequivocally a violation of strike rules:

The Writers Guild of America, East announced it would be picketing Barrymore?s New York based daytime talk show.

?The @DrewBarrymoreTV Show is a WGA covered, struck show that is planning to return without its writers,? a tweet from their Twitter account reads. ?The Guild has, and will continue to, picket struck shows that are in production during the strike. Any writing on ?The Drew Barrymore Show? is in violation of the WGA strike rules.?

In her statement Barrymore, who is one of the show?s executive producers, wrote that she owns the choice to return to production at a time when many talk shows have gone dark in solidarity with the strikes.

?We are in compliance with not discussing or promoting film and television that is struck of any kind. We launched live in a global pandemic,? she wrote. ?Our show was built for sensitive times and has only functioned through what the real world is going through in real time. I want to be there to provide what writers do so well, which is a way to bring us together or help us make sense of the human experience.?

A spokesperson for CBS Media Ventures, which produces the talk show, told CNN in a statement that ?The Drew Barrymore Show will not be performing any writing work covered by the WGA strike.?

So basically the producers (who the unions are striking against) are using the same line as The View. It?s a very technical, lawyer-approved way of saying the shows are not using work by union members. Which means they?re saying ? by omission ? that non-union writers or producers are generating material. Honestly my takeaway is that we?re late in asking why The View, Live with Kelly and Mark, et al are still in production.

But wait, there?s more! As if Drew hadn?t landed herself in enough of a quagmire, on Monday her crew kicked out (and allegedly ?verbally assaulted?) two audiences members who showed up to a taping wearing WGA pins:

Meanwhile, X/Twitter user Dominic Turiczek took to social media to document being ?kicked out? of today?s ?Drew Barrymore Show? taping.

?Went to @DrewBarrymoreTV after winning tickets, unaware of the #WGA strike. We took pins & went in, got kicked out, & verbally assaulted by @DrewBarrymore ?s crew. It?s clear they don?t support #WGAStrong, writers or fans! #DrewTheRightThing So we took shirts and joined. F? that,? Turiczek wrote.

?We knew about the #WGA strike, just not that they were picketing at Drew?s show. We were unaware until inside, that her show had WGA writers, thus crossing picket lines by starting again. We won the tickets last minute and didn?t do enough research, clearly,? the message continued.

In a statement to Variety, a ?Drew Barrymore Show? spokesperson addressed the booted audience members.

?It is our policy to welcome everyone to our show tapings,? the spokesperson said. ?Due to heightened security concerns today, we regret that two audience members were not permitted to attend or were not allowed access. Drew was completely unaware of the incident and we are in the process of reaching out to the affected audience members to offer them new tickets.?

[From Variety]

What a mess! I?m dying to know if the show does reach out and make the situation right, like really make a teachable moment out of it and invite them back to speak for a minute, wearing the damn pins. Or will the show do it Buckingham Palace style, wait a few weeks and invite them to sit with the crew members who attacked them? Do let us know, Dominic!

The last point I want to make is that if Drew really isn?t breaking strike rules, and by that I mean not employing writers or any written material. If that is the case, then the show will be? Drew speaking extemporaneously? Unless your name is Stephen Fry, any actor-turned-host who thinks they can deliver quality material off the cuff for 30-60 minutes 5 days a week, well they might actually end up convincing the studios to give the writers everything they want.

Went to @DrewBarrymoreTV after winning tickets, unaware of the #WGA strike. We took pins & went in, got kicked out, & verbally assaulted by @DrewBarrymore?s crew. It?s clear they don?t support #WGAStrong, writers or fans! #DrewTheRightThing So we took shirts and joined. Fuck that

Kim Kardashian wore Balenciaga to the Kering Foundation's NYFW event
Here are some photos from last night?s Kering Foundation?s Caring For Women event. This was attached to New York Fashion Week, and this is why Kim Kardashian has been in New York this week. Kim has really been cozying up to Lauren Sanchez, Jeff Bezos? fiancee, as this is easily the fifth or sixth time they?ve attended the same event or been seen together in recent months. Sanchez was also at this event. Kim?s dress is Balenciaga many women wore Balenciaga to this event (because Kering owns Balenciaga).

Lauren Sanchez wore Dolce & Gabbana Big Bird vibez.

Speaking of big feathered birds, Nicole Kidman wore this pale, feathered number. It was? a lot. The hair is not doing her any favors here.

Karlie Kloss looked amazing in her tuxedo. Olivia Wilde looked like bedraggled ass in her tuxedo.

Malala and Asser! They?re so beautiful together.

Salma Hayek brought some bombshell energy to the event (she?s married to the CEO of Kering).

Taylor Swift wore Versace to sweep the 2023 MTV VMAs: cute or tragic?

Taylor Swift wore Versace to sweep the 2023 MTV VMAs: cute or tragic?
For years now, the MTV VMAs and Movie Awards have been in the depths of hell like, no A-listers were showing up to those events, and it was just an endless parade of C-listers and reality stars. I figured this year?s VMAs would be the same, but MTV somehow got a bunch of big-name people to come out. Of course, I kind of think the only reason Taylor Swift went to the VMAs is because MTV guaranteed that Taylor would sweep, which is what happened she won NINE VMAs this year. For the red carpet, Taylor wore Versace? you guys, this dress is so bad. Like, WTF? Who picked this out for Taylor? And who styled her?

Here?s Olivia Rodrigo in a great Ludovic de Saint Sernin dress. So pretty.

Shakira picked up the MTV Video Vanguard Award, and she wore Versace on the carpet (and on stage). I love how sparkles and metallics are back this year!

Cardi B wore the ?Dilara Findikoglu hair clip dress,? a dress made out of hundreds of hair clips. She looked cool.

Selena Gomez wore this red Oscar de la Renta dress. Eh, kind of phoned it in?

Blake Lively glowed in a bellbottom jumpsuit at the NYFW Michael Kors show

Blake Lively glowed in a bellbottom jumpsuit at the NYFW Michael Kors show
Even with the SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes still ongoing, it feels like so much is happening the Venice Film Festival closed this past weekend, the Toronto Film Festival started several days ago, and New York Fashion Week is super-star-studded. The Michael Kors show is always a popular ticket during NYFW, and the star of the Kors show is inevitably Blake Lively. Blake is all about Kors and she almost always comes out for his runway shows.

He usually gives her something from his new collection too, which explains why Blake wore this Michael Kors bellbottom jumpsuit. Thoughts? I don?t hate it, although I wonder if the jumpsuit would be better with a simple flared leg rather than full bellbottom. The golden shade complements Blake?s coloring and I love her curly hair and the overall ?70s vibe. While I think Blake generally has a Mall Girl aesthetic, she actually pulls off some generational vintage-style fashion.

Here?s Jenna Dewan at the Kors show? I only love the coat here. I would wear the hell out of that coat.

Kelsea Ballerini loathe the sunglasses, dislike the ?high fashion fanny pack? energy.

Olivia Wilde god help me, but I love this outfit. Great coat, great boots, amazing knits. I don?t even mind the fringed purse.

Ellen Pompeo kind of got the worst Kors outfit.
