In her new memoir titled Thicker Than Water, Kerry Washington explains why her role in the 2004 film Against the Ropes was her last time playing the "white girl's best friend."

"In it, I played Meg Ryan's coworker and confidante – this was becoming a new niche for me, the white girl's best friend," the Little Fires Everywhere actress writes in her book. Washington played the best friend to Julia Stiles in 2001's Save the Last Dance as well as Caroline Dhavernas' best friend in the scrapped 2004 pilot for Wonderfalls.

"‘When Harry Met Sally' is, to this day, one of my top three movies of all time, so once I'd played Meg Ryan's best friend, playing the role against anyone else would have been a lateral move," she writes. "It's not that I wanted to be the star of the film; I wanted my characters to be in a story of their own. I didn't want to be an accessory to a white woman's journey."

Washington would eventually go on to star as the first Black female lead on network television in nearly 40 years with Scandal. On Wednesday (September 27th), she shared a video of her reuniting with her Scandal costar, Tony Goldwyn, for an event promoting her new book at George Washington University. "Hi D.C #Olitz is ready for you," she wrote.


Drew Carey supported the Hollywood writers strike by providing sustenance to those on the picket line—and their families. The Price Is Right host generously paid for the meals of approximately "80 to 100 writers a day" at Swingers Diner in Los Angeles.

Stephanie Wilson, the owner of the restaurant, told Entertainment Tonight, "About a week into the strike, Drew reached out to us and said, 'We have to do something for the writers. Would it be OK if I offered free meals at Swingers? Can you guys facilitate that?' I was like, 'Yeah, absolutely.' So we did!"

She added, "What's really special about what he did is Drew wasn't just covering costs for the writers. He would cover spouses, he would cover entire families … He's really looking out for an entire industry, which is pretty amazing."

Wilson estimated that the Whose Line Is It Anyway? star spent "six figures during the strike ... thousands every day."


The new season of The Kardashians premiered on Hulu Thursday (September 28th), featuring an explosive fight between Kim and Kourtney. The pair have been at each other's throats since the Poosh founder accused the American Horror Story actress of copying her wedding for her Dolce & Gabbana show.

During a phone call, Kourtney calls Kim "egotistical" and "selfish." Regarding her wedding in Italy, she adds, "You came to my wedding, you couldn't be happy. You complained from the second you got there 'til the second you left … You couldn't be happy for me. You couldn't be happy that I was the center of attention, and you weren't—"

Kim replies, "I was so happy for you! Why would I not be happy for you?" She then asks her sister to "dig deep and figure out why you hate me so much." Kim also accuses Kourtney of having a "serious vendetta" against the family—revealing that they have a group chat labeled "Not Kourtney."

Kourtney later calls Kim a "narcissist," and when the Skims founder asks her if she's happy, she replies, "I have a happy life and that happiness comes when I get the f--- away from you guys. Specifically you."


Michael Gambon, the actor most known for his role as Dumbledore in the Harry Potter franchise, has died at the age of 82.

"We are devastated to announce the loss of Sir Michael Gambon," his family said in a statement released Thursday (September 28th). They added that he "died peacefully in hospital" following a bout of pneumonia.

Gambon appeared in films such as The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover, The King's Speech, The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and Gosford Park.

"So sad to hear about Michael. He brought so much warmth and mischief to every day on set. He captivated me as a kid and became a personal role model of mine for finding the fun and eccentricities in life," Grint wrote on Instagram.
