It’s been Halloween for two whole weeks now, and everyone is okay with that because everything is scary, including scammers. This week in Hollywood, Shonda Rhimes set the cast for her Netflix series about Notorious S.C.A.M.M.E.R Anna Delvey, there’s a Pirates of the Caribbean revival happening (yes, mate), and Alexander Wang got a talk show at Quibi, our secret love child. Let’s get it on, non-sexually.
