Town & Country uninvited Monica Lewinsky from an event because Bill Clinton was attending and Lewinsky (rightfully) called them out.
@MonicaLewinsky, tweeting about Town & Country magazine uninviting her from its annual philanthropic summit because former President Bill Clinton, with whom she had an affair in the ’90s, was going to be speaking. Lewinsky said the late manners and etiquette writer Emily Post “would def not approve.”
‘Backstreet’s back’ … as the Spice Girls, uh, Spice Boys.
@BrittanicaSS12, tweeting about the ’90s boy band Backstreet Boys dressing up as the iconic Spice Girls on their Backstreet Boys Cruise. The newly minted Spice Boys sang Spice Girls hits “Wannabe” and “Say You’ll Be There.” From left: Nick Carter as Baby Spice (Emma Bunton); AJ McLean as Scary Spice (Mel B); Kevin Richardson as Posh Spice (Victoria Beckham); Howie Dorough as Ginger Spice (Geri Halliwell); and Brian Littrell, front, as Sporty Spice (Mel C).
A college student had her scholarship taken away because of her ‘dreamer’ status. A few days ago, she graduated.
@camilaronipizza, recounting how the University of South Florida revoked her scholarship and in-state tuition after discovering she was an undocumented immigrant (though her DACA paperwork was submitted). Camila Silva thought she’d have to drop out, but her parents took on more work to cover the costs.
Unconvinced that 2018 is weird? Mitch McConnell just used ‘Narcos’ to burn a GOP Senate candidate.
@PhillyD, reacting to a taunt from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to Don Blankenship, a Senate candidate in West Virginia’s GOP primary. Blankenship lost, and McConnell’s team shared a Photoshop of McConnell in white powder, in a reference to the series “Narcos.” It read, “Thanks for playing, Don” — a rebuttal to Blankenship calling him “Cocaine Mitch.”
