TGIF! The end of the week is finally here. ICYMI, Mercury is still a hot mess this week so if you’ve joined us on struggle street, don’t worry, today means there is only one week of retrograde to go.
Like last week, this week was mostly devoid of ~drama~ but if the Kardashian’s have anything to do with it, and they do, there’s still a little bit of tea left in the cup to see us into next week.
Khloe Kardashian got dragged on Instagram
What’s a weekly wrap without a Kardashian (Don’t answer that in the comments, Mercury means I’m not in the mood)? After last week’s brief interlude with Kourtney, eyes are back on Khloe Kardash. Last time the internet dragged Khloe it was for her poor handling of that Jordyn Woods interview. This time, hilarious actress and body positivity icon, Jameela Jamil, has come for Khloe over her promotion of Flat Tummy Co Tea.
Khloe hit up Instagram for the gazillionth time with an #ad for the meal replacement shakes, and a lot of people, mainly Jamil weighed in on the toxic and potentially body disorder inducing messaging.
Not one to fling accusations without justification, Jameela ended her comment on a positive saying “You’re a smart woman. Be smarter than this.” Here, here!
North West is involved in the cringiest collab
More from the Kardashian-verse, North West is collabing with Jojo Siwa. “Who?” I hear you ask. This, ladies and gents, is Jojo Siwa:
Not exactly on brand for North West whose wardrobe is worth more than my entire existence. North wears Givenchy, she wears Oscar de la Renta, she’s been on the cover of Vogue. And now she’s sprinkling her star power on YouTube with Jojo with the Bow-Bow.
Apparently, Jojo has a super popular YT account (so do we, you should check it out) and North is absolutely obsessed with the 15 -year-old who also has her own Barbie, a range at Target and 8 million Instagram followers…I’m sorry, but why?
Apparently, Kimmy K will be in the video too and she and Jojo are quite the BFFs. Jojo says she texts Kim five times a day (again, why?) and Kim tags Jojo on Twitter regularly.
Honestly, this is the weirdest combo since people started putting almond butter on apple slices (don’t @ me, this is the grossest combo ever and shouldn’t be a thing) and personally, I think North needs to reassess her brand or at least have her nanny to do it for her.
Kate and Wills chugged a pint of Guinness
Speaking of people going wildly off-brand (she’s back with the segues fam), The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge aka Kate Middleton and Prince William were on official state business for St Patrick’s Day in Ireland and you know, when in Ireland do as the Irish do!
The one-day King and Queen of England presented Irish guardsmen with shamrocks and in not-so-typical fashion ended their outing with a couple of pints of Guinness. It’s unusual to see any members of the royal family drinking booze outside the walls of Buckingham Palace but honestly with all those kids and all those corgis, I don’t blame ’em.
Speaking of their kids, if you aren’t following Prince George on Instagram, you’re not using the app effectively. Take a look and thank me later.
Cardi B, J-Lo and Lili Reinhart are starring in a movie together
Moving on from royal queens to screen queens, some of our fave Hollywood darlings are coming together for a new movie called Hustlers. The film’s leading ladies include Cardi B (yes, that Cardi B), Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles, and Lili Reinhart. WHAT. A. COMBO.
The actresses will be playing a group vengeful ex-strippers aiming to wreak havoc on their wealthy Wall Street clients. J-Lo will obviously play the lead as the girl gang set out to con rich clientele with use extreme methods including drugs like Ketamine and MDMA, yikes.

Cardi B and Jenny From The Block know each other from their hit track, Dinero, but the film will be Cardi’s first foray into film. Since she actually was a stripper before reaching stardom as a rapper, I’ll bet Cardi B nails her cinematic debut. Will she take the method acting route? Only time will tell.
We went viral
ICYMI, and if you did, rude, we started a new series at Showpo HQ dedicated to your love life. For our first ep, we roped in Showbro Miguel to dish the dirt on what guys actually think about on first dates. Always wondered whether you’re being judged for sleeping with a lady or fella too soon? We’ve got answers.
Well, that’s it for the week that was. Like I said, it was a tame one. Oh and in case you’re wondering, we still have no idea what the fuck Poosh is.
Til next week, Emma Roffey
