Teigen started it off with the pic tweet itself, showing just a hint of all the bull shit celebs go through on the daily from a faceless, nameless group of angry Internet trolls (below):

Those comments… goodness gracious!!

But at least Chrissy’s response (above) was legit!

And she followed it up with another gem immediately after, succinctly summing up everything we are all thinking about shitty Internet trolls (below):

Preach, girl, PREACH!! You are on point!!

Just saying what we are all thinking…

Kong: Skull Island Wins BIG At This Weekend’s Box Office!

This weekend was a big winner for Kong: Skull Island!

The reboot debuted overseas to $81.6 million and brought in another $61 million from the domestic side alone to give it a $142.6 million opening weekend — a BIG number for the number one movie in America right now!

As expected with a debut that big, Logan fell to number two on the week — although the Hugh Jackman flick still raced past $150 million in its U.S. cume, and is now up to $430 million worldwide after having been in theaters for a few weeks now.

But the big story is Kong, the world’s most famous ape story that is now part of a new franchise that, by the looks of it, is doing really really well with viewers!

There is one problem, of course: Kong: Skull Island cost about $185 million to make and then went through a HUGE marketing push, so it probably has to earn back half a *billion* dollars globally to re-make its money. But, hey — they are off to a good start after this weekend!!

The flick had been expected to earn about $50 million tops this week, so the fact that it has cracked $60 million on the domestic side is a big deal — and bodes well for the immediate future for this movie, as well as the coming franchise sequels.

Now, after Logan in the second spot (that film took in $37.9 million on its second weekend), Jordan Peele is still winning at the box office with a $21 million total in Get Out‘s third weekend in theaters. That brings the film up above the $100 million mark, to $111.1 million, though Sunday.

And remember — Get Out cost just $5 million to make.

Not a bad investment at all…

What’d U see in theaters this weekend, Perezcious readers?!

Anything fun?? Share yours in the comments (below)!!!

The Bracket Is Set! Nova Slated As NCAA Tournament’s Number One Overall Seed

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Villanova took the overall top seed on Selection Sunday, with Kansas, North Carolina and Gonzaga joining the defending national champions on the No. 1 line for the NCAA Tournament.

Enter The National Bracket Challenge For Your Chance To Win BIG

Not many surprises there, though Duke — left at No. 2 despite a four-win-in-four-night performance in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament — and Syracuse and Illinois State, who got left out altogether, may have been searching for answers.

Northwestern was plenty happy: Though it was no surprise, the Wildcats were jumping up and down, taking selfies and celebrating after being officially invited into March Madness for the first time in the program’s history. The Wildcats were seeded eighth in the West, and will open against Vanderbilt on Thursday.

Keep Up With The Latest News In The Tournament

With the brackets set, the action begins Tuesday and Wednesday with opening-round games that will include matchups between the last at-large teams invited into the draw: No. 11 seeds Providence vs. Southern California and Kansas State vs. Wake Forest.

The Final Four is April 1 and 3 in Phoenix. Villanova, which won the title last year on a buzzer-beating jump shot by Kris Jenkins, will open its quest for back-to-back titles against the winner of an opening-round game between New Orleans and Mount Saint Mary’s.

Some head-scratchers:

–Wichita State, ranked 20th in the nation in the latest Associated Press poll, was given a No. 10 seed.

–Syracuse, a controversial bubble team that made it to the Final Four last year, was left out this time — its 84 ranking in the RPI and lack of solid road wins dooming its hopes.

–North Carolina got top seeding over Duke despite losing two of three to the Blue Devils, including in the ACC Tournament.

–Illinois State of the Missouri Valley Conference was left out, as the selection committee again mainly shunned the little guys, giving all four of the final bubble spots to teams from the six biggest conferences.

Early candidate for toughest region: The South, with North Carolina, Kentucky, UCLA and Butler the top four seeds.

The Entirety of ‘Breaking Bad’ Has Been Made into a 2-Hour Movie

New and old Breaking Bad fans are in for a treat thanks to a clever Vimeo user. Answering the question, “What if Breaking Bad was a movie?” the 127-minute film aims to highlight the underlying concept from the show’s 62-episode run.

According to the creators themselves, “It’s not a fan-film, hitting the highlights of show in a home-made homage, but rather a re-imagining of the underlying concept itself, lending itself to full feature-length treatment.”

The project took two years to complete and you can enjoy it all in just over two hours above.

The Hills Alum Lo Bosworth Opens Up About Severe Depression And Anxiety In Heartfelt Video — Watch

Surely you remember Lo Bosworth from her early fame on The Hills and Laguna Beach, but now that she’s well past her reality TV days, she’s also getting really, really real about mental health.

The now 30-year-old posted a blog post and a video late Friday explaining why she hasn’t spent much time on her YouTube channel, and used that opening to talk about something very important and personal to her: depression and anxiety.

Speaking out in a post titled 2016: The Year of my Great Depression, Bosworth wrote:

“2016 wasn’t only just the worst year ever, it was also the year I turned 30, founded my own feminine wellness company, and brought an amazing puppy home. So not all bad. Light does find way of shining through the darkness. And what is the darkness I’m referring to? Crippling anxiety and depression at the hands of a severe vitamin deficiency that went undiscovered for 16 months … That all developed into a feeling of anxiety that lasted for almost 2 months without any relief. I mean, can you imagine having a 60 day long panic attack? I can now – I lived it. On top of all of this, imagine that you have no idea why your body is turning itself inside out, your brain feels like it’s on Pluto, and your sweet boyfriend is wondering what the fuck is going on. The unknown is certainly a terrifying place.”

Wow.

Bosworth went on in her post to describe more about her depression, as well as some of the ways she’s pulling herself up out of it — the entire thing can be read HERE.

She also shared a new YT video (below):

Powerful, powerful stuff.

We’re firmly in your corner, rooting for you, Lo!!
