Big Lies

Sean Spicer left his job as White House press secretary not even a full week ago and is living his best life—at least that’s what reports say. According to Page Six, he’s had meetings with Fox News, NBC, CBS and ABC in hopes of landing a career in broadcast, and it seems his search may already be over. Sources say Spicey’s been tapped by none other than Dancing with the Stars, which is funny, because actor Zach Braff pretty much called it when he tweeted: “Can’t wait to see Sean Spicer waltz on Dancing With the Stars” on July 21. Page Six reached out to Spicer, but he declined to comment. A representative for ABC told the outlet, “We don’t comment on casting.” Looks like only time will tell here, but we have a feeling this was prooobably his plan all along. Whatchy’all think?

Big Facts?

Hold up (*in our Beyoncé voice). Was the title of Jay-Z’s latest album inspired by that night in the elevator!? That’s what one Twitter user seems to think after staying at The Standard hotel where the infamous night went down. “I’m at The Standard where Solange beat Jay-Z’s ass in the elevator,” @StephenOssola tweeted on Wednesday. “THE ADDRESS IS 444. I AM SHOOK.” And so is the rest of the Internet.

Twitter users quickly chimed in with their mutual shookethness, but could this have been a ploy for retweets? Maybe. The good folks at DJ Booth said they called the hotel and that 444 West 13th is actually the secondary address. But one still has to wonder. As another Twitter user pointed out, 4:44 is also Hov’s 13th album.

“To be clear, we are not reporting that JAY-Z’s album title is in fact titled after the secondary address of The Standard High Line Hotel and not, as JAY-Z explained previously, the time of day he woke up to pen ‘4:44,’”DJ Booth wrote on Wednesday.

BUT ONE STILL HAS TO WONDER.

Big News

The death of New York Judge Sheila Abdus-Salaam, the first Black woman to serve on the state’s highest court, has reportedly been ruled a suicide. According to New York Daily News, sources say Abdus-Salaam, who was 65, struggled with depression. A statement provided by the Medical Examiner’s office said her death was caused by drowning, though Abdus-Salaam’s husband, Rev. Gregory Jacobs, had previously dismissed initial reports that she committed suicide. “Those of us who loved (Sheila) and knew her well do not believe that these unfounded conclusions have any basis in reality,” Jacobs said in April. The NYPD closed their investigation on May 3.
