No Filter: Even Sarah Paulson Can’t Believe Sarah Paulson

Hi, welcome back to No Filter! Did you watch the Emmys?!!??! I watched the Emmys! It was there that Kate McKinnon “debuted” her girlfriend Jackie Abbott, a Very Big Deal. According to Page Six, Abbott is also a comedian whose “special skills” are listed as “tango, martial arts and golf.” I imagine that Kate McKinnon does her breathy Carol impression at Jackie all the goddamn time, and I’m a little jealous if we’re being real. Also, Demi Lovato told us she’s not going to tell us whether or not she’s bisexual until we watch her documentary. Last but not least, somebody called Sarah Paulson a baked potato. Was it you?

Every time Lauren and Samira came up on my screen I yelled “LAUREN!!!” at the screen and she didn’t yell anything back.

I’m not quite ready for winter wonderland shit yet, but Be Steadwell is.

Laura Jane Grace playing it cool and casual at a Walmart in Phoenix, I guess.

Sometimes Sarah Paulson takes a long, hard look at herself in the mirror and is like, “I’m Sarah Paulson. Hot damn.”

I’m here to speculate about Amber Heard and her gal pal on their casual trip to Bali. They’re such good friends!
Shout out to the actual bitch who prevented Lauren Jauregui from enjoying this likely very fine champagne but rest assured, no actual bitch could prevent her from taking selfies with it.

I could not stop staring at Lena Waithe’s suit throughout her entire acceptance speech and honestly I still can’t.

  1. Speaking of Evan Rachel Wood, she was on Cameron Esposito’s Queery Podcast this week and it was as amazing as it sounds.

    Also, saw this at the supermarket check stand line yesterday.

  2. Haha for a second there I thought you said Kate McKinnon has a girlfriend but obviously that’s not true because if it were I’d have to throw myself into the sea and I know you wouldn’t do that to me so obviously that’s a typo and what you meant is that she has a GULF WREN which is clearly some species of cute pet bird and not a gal who is a pal or any such ridiculous idea. Nope. No way. Of course not.

  3. I didn’t know who Amber heard was and was secretly hoping it would turn out to be Amber Ruffin from Seth Meyers and now I’m very disappointed that Amber Ruffin is not enjoying a super fun gal pal vacation.
