Katie Couric Is Not for Everyone
In the weeks before the publication of her memoir, Going There, Katie Couric and I would play a dark little game called Funny or Fucked Up? Over coffee, lunch, and Zoom calls, I would bring up an anecdote from the book — like, say, the first sentence, which is about the time she ate so many carrots in the summer after college that her skin turned orange — and ask her what, exactly, her reader was supposed to make of it. The carrots were on account of the Scarsdale Diet, the deprivational fad to which the 22-year-old Couric had committed because her plan “was to look as good as possible for my wet hot American summer” before “finding a job — maybe even a career — in TV news.”That career would wind up being a blockbuster. At the peak of her fame at the turn of the millennium, which coincided with the heyday of the Today show and the primacy of the morning network-news program, she enjoyed near-unrivaled power. Along with a handful of other women — Barbara Walters, Diane Sawyer, Connie Chung, Oprah Winfrey — Couric was one of the people who determined how American television audiences understood the world.

Longing for Family
In 2018, Sydney Mieko King, with her mother, began sorting through her maternal grandmother’s old photos. They sat on the floor together and explored old Polaroids of trips to Japan, glamour shots of her grandmother, and group photos with people Sydney didn’t recognize.Both of Sydney’s maternal grandparents, who are of Japanese descent, were sent to internment camps in Arizona during World War II. Her mother grew up among the community that returned to California after the war, one she described as an “extended family of aunties and uncles and cousins” who weren’t necessarily blood relations. Knowing that there was great sadness and pain surrounding her family’s relocation — and the memory of it — she was surprised by the joy and resilience she saw in the family photos.

How to Improve Your Finances, No Matter How Messy They Are
The Cut’s financial advice columnist Charlotte Cowles answers readers’ personal questions about personal finance. Email your money conundrums to [email protected] 2014, Jamila Souffrant had a revelation while sitting in traffic during her daily commute from Brooklyn to New Jersey: She had to quit her job. But walking away from a secure corporate paycheck wouldn’t be easy. She was pregnant, and she and her husband had recently taken out a mortgage to buy their first home. “I saw my life flash before my eyes, and I thought, I’m stuck, and I cannot keep doing this,” she says. “So I got home and started Googling, ‘How do I retire early?’” Her search turned up podcasts and blogs about personal finance. “I learned about all these regular people who weren’t rich and didn’t have extraordinary careers, but who were able to reach financial independence by being frugal, investing their money, and saving,” she says. “Slowly, I started gaining knowledge.”

Amanda Chantal Bacon Knows Wellness Is Privileged
Amanda Chantal Bacon — the founder behind Moon Juice, the destination for adaptogen-powered supplements and skin care — changed her approach to wellness during the pandemic. Forced to stay at home and communicate through Zoom, she recognized the toll that constant traveling was taking on her body. In that stillness, she was able to work on her second cookbook, The Moon Juice Manual: Adaptogenic Recipes for Natural Stress Relief (which is out now). It’s much more “approachable” than her first, Bacon promises. This time around, “the goal was easy, fun, comforting, yummy food — and at the heart of it, it was my job to worry about things like the recipes being low-glycemic (and secretly they’re all anti-inflammatory foods).” Expect recipes like Horny Goat Weed Brownies, Supershroom Pancakes and Waffles, and Eleuthero Chocolate Chunk Cookies.

Human remains were found in Florida near possessions believed to belong to Brian Laundrie. For the past month, authorities have been conducting a nationwide manhunt for Laundrie, who is the sole "person of interest" in the murder of fiancée Gabby Petito. Now though, the FBI is saying a body was found near "items of interest," including a backpack and notebook linked to Laundrie, in a section of the Carlton Reserve previously covered by water.

Netflix Employees Walkout in Protest of Dave Chappelle Special
The controversy surrounding Dave Chappelle's recent special, The Closer, continues to be a major headache for Netflix as the trans employee resource group stages a massive walkout in protest of co-CEO Ted Sarandos' defense of the comedian's anti-trans remarks. Many celebrities including Elliot Page, Lilly Wachowski and Wanda Sykes tweeted out in support of protest with organizers even having to make a last minute change of venue to accommodate the overwhelming response. "We want the company to adopt measures in the areas of content investment, employee relations and safety, and harm reduction, all of which are necessary to avoid future instances of platforming transphobia and hate speech," employees wrote in a press release along with a list of demands.

Have We Forgotten How to Do Halloween?
As soon as we hit mid-October this year, the frantic text messages started pouring in. “What are you doing for Halloween???” they read. I pride myself on always having a plan, specifically around Halloween, which is obviously the best holiday. But this year, I’m coming up short. “Idk!!!” I say back. “What are YOU doing???”The question seems to be more fraught than it has been years past. (Or since the last time I really celebrated, which was in 2019.) First of all, when I try to think of culturally relevant costume ideas, I can’t even recall what happened yesterday. What did I watch? Did anything cool or funny happen? No idea. Couldn’t tell you. Everything is a blur in my mushy pandemic brain.

Paris Hilton Wants Congress to Crack Down on Abusive Reform Schools
Paris Hilton took a moment out of her wedding month to meet with members of Congress on Wednesday, pushing for legislation to protect children living in congregate-care facilities. Specifically, Hilton wants lawmakers to crack down on what she described in a recent op-ed for the Washington Post as the “troubled teen industry” — institutions like the Utah reform school where she says she suffered physical and emotional abuse as a teenager. Facilities like these, Hilton said, have “been able to mislead parents, school districts, child-welfare agencies, and juvenile-justice systems for decades. The reason is a systemwide lack of transparency and accountability.”Hilton first began speaking publicly about her 11-month stint at Provo Canyon School, a Utah boarding school and “behavioral-health center,” last year, in interviews and her This Is Paris documentary. Hilton wrote in her op-ed that she landed at Provo Canyon after a parent-approved kidnapping, in which “two men with handcuffs” woke her up and “asked if [she] wanted to go ‘the easy way or the hard way,’” allegedly carrying her screaming from her home. Her parents, she says, wanted help curbing her “rebellious” behavior.

Well, This Is a Friendship We Did Not See Coming
It’s a big week for Penn Badgley. The third season of his unsettlingly creepy show You came out, but more importantly, he found out that he is Cardi B’s yardstick for fame. What a feeling!What happened is: A clip from the promo for You’s first season resurfaced on Twitter, where Badgley praises Cardi B for having an “incredibly authentic relationship” with social media.

A Cashmere Robe for Luxurious Lounging
Rather than writing stories about clothing, Isabel Wilkinson Schor realized that she wanted to design them. A native New Yorker, she began her fashion career working at the Cut and then T Magazine before leaving to start her own brand, Attersee, which launched this summer.Finding herself with wanderlust while under lockdown last year, Wilkinson Schor’s first collection came to fruition as she daydreamed about a seaside vacation and what clothes she would pack for the trip: cabana-striped caftans, drop-shoulder shirts with matching shorts, and linen dresses with braided trim and silky fringe.This month, Attersee released its second collection for fall. While many of the pieces, like the linen fringe dress, will simply be updated with new fabrics like silk and colorways: crisp whites and colorful stripes are switched out for camel, navy, light and dark grays. Plus, Wilkinson Schor introduced new styles like a bib front tunic dress, a cashmere blanket, and a luscious velvet-lined cashmere robe coat — all easy to mix with each other and all in Loro Piana Cashmere. Luxury.

Actually, the Queen Is Not Old at All
Queen Elizabeth II, who is famously young, recently declined an award for Oldie of the Year, a title bestowed unto British olds by Oldie magazine. Understandably so, as the queen is actually the youngest age that you can be: 95.The magazine apparently attempted to “award” the queen the title earlier this year. However, per BBC, Tom Laing-Baker, the queen’s assistant private secretary, responded to Oldie magazine saying, “Her Majesty believes you are as old as you feel, as such the queen does not believe she meets the relevant criteria to be able to accept, and hopes you will find a more worthy recipient.” It’s very noble and brave to disqualify yourself from any award. So, well done, young lady!

How to Be the First One Sent Home on The Bachelorette
There are so many ways to get sent home early on The Bachelorette: have a girlfriend back home, get in a fight with the other guys, be a skin salesmen. But perhaps the most dystopian way to be eliminated night one happened on this week’s season premiere of The Bachelorette. Contestant Ryan Fox, an environmental consultant who lives on a raisin farm, met his early demise after bachelorette Michelle Young found out about his literal playbook — a collection of notes, tips, and tricks about Bachelor Nation. Uh-oh, has someone been watching a bit too much You, Ryan?After getting his own little video segment introducing him to the audience — riding around shirtless on a tractor, making jokes about plowing fields — former bachelorettes and current hosts Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe rifled through Ryan’s belongings to find out more about him. To their surprise — or “surprise,” since it seems like the producers may have had an inkling about what they’d find — the two women discovered Ryan’s pages and pages of printed notes on Michelle, former contestants, and the Bachelor franchise as a whole that Ryan put it in a folder with the misspelled label, “Bachlorette.” He also drew a sad little rose.

Kim Kardashian West Helped Get a Stolen Coffin Back to Egypt?
Reality-TV personality, attorney in training, shapewear wizard — professionally speaking, Kim Kardashian West has range, but did you know she helped catalyze the return of a stolen coffin to Egypt? Huh?? What??? How.The artifact in question: one golden coffin of Nedjemankh, purchased by New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art in 2017 and repatriated in September 2019, after the district attorney’s office discovered it had been looted from Minya during the 2011 revolution. From there, smugglers trafficked it through the United Arab Emirates and into Germany, where the manager of Hamburg’s Dionysos Gallery, Roben Dib, allegedly restored it and furnished fake export papers. From there, the coffin (which once contained the mummified corpse of “a high-ranking priest of the ram-headed god Heryshef of Herakleopolis,” per the Met) went to France, where antiquities dealers arranged its sale to the Met for $4 million. None of which is news, but maybe you are wondering what, or who, put the coffin on the DA’s radar to begin with. That would be Kim Kardashian West.

How to Be a Greedy Bisexual
So much of being queer — besides taking crouching selfies in one of Yayoi Kusama's infinity mirrors — is being in a constant state of questioning. We obsess over the things we've learned (either consciously or adopted through social cues), our wants and desires, and how we move through the world at large. It's both an embrace and rejection of stereotypes — an overlap that's perfect for writer Jen Winston to examine the many facets of her own identity, specifically her bisexuality. In Greedy: Notes From a Bisexual Who Wants Too Much, out now, Winston interrogates her upbringing — both inside and outside the household — and how both have shaped her process of self-discovery. Cognizant of her bisexuality from an early age, Winston has struggled to find a way to define it — and herself — on her own terms. Her debut combines memoir and queer theory, resulting in an essay collection that's at once relatable, laugh-out-loud funny and refreshingly illuminating.

I Wish Every Day Was a No-Bones Day
TikTok has found its latest trend, and it involves a game called “bones or no bones” and a 13-year-old pug named Noodle. Describing this phenomenon in words will not do it justice. You just have to watch:Noodle’s owner, Jonathan Graziano, first posted about Noodle in September 2020; since then, the account has gained over 2 million followers. New Noodle videos are posted somewhat sporadically, which only adds to the thrill. Waking up to see a new video of Noodle is, in fact, the highlight of my day.As you can see, when Noodle has bones, it’s a day to celebrate. Graziano cheers, looking genuinely happy for his dog, which is the sweetest thing I have seen online in a very long time. As he puts it, a bones day is one to “buy that lottery ticket, get that divorce, quit that job. Do whatever you were scared to do.”
