Darlings, we don’t know about what’s happening around you, but outside the walls of T Lo Manor, the sky is gray and the birds are silent. Which is why it makes perfect sense to us to cocoon ourselves in someplace cozy-fabulous, where time and sunlight don’t matter. Pull up a plush stool and join us. We’re holding court on a pink velvet settee, which is what God always intended for us.

While you’re here, please peruse the daily specials on our Menu of Distractions:

 

Shirley Knight, Tony- and Emmy-Winning Actress, Dies at 83

A SECRET LOVE on Netflix
A SECRET LOVE tells an incredible love story between Terry Donahue and Pat Henschel, whose relationship spans nearly seven decades. Terry played in the women’s professional baseball league, inspiring the hit movie A LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN. But the film did not tell the real-life story of the women who remained closeted for most of their lives. This documentary follows Terry and Pat back to when they met for the first time, through their professional lives in Chicago, coming out to their conservative families and grappling with whether or not to get married. Facing the hardships of aging and illness, their love proves resilient as they enter the home stretch. Directed by Chris Bolan and produced by Alexa L. Fogel, Brendan Mason and Ryan Murphy. Executive produced by Blumhouse, and in association with Now This. A SECRET LOVE debuts Wednesday, April 29th.

 

Prince Louis Is Paint-Covered in His Adorable Second Birthday Portraits
Ahead of the little royal’s second birthday on April 23, the Cambridge family shared three new portraits of the toddler. They show Louis with paint-covered hands, smiling at the camera. He wears a blue checkered button down, and at one point looks like he’s happily lunging at the camera—perhaps to give the Duchess of Cambridge, the photographer, a hug. Louis’s final product is also revealed: a rainbow handprint on white and green construction paper. Whether intended or not, his artwork of choice has particular poignance at this time, when children across the United Kingdom have drawn rainbows in support of NHS workers.

 

50 Space Movies That Are Out of This World
Hollywood has long been obsessed with outer space—even before men walked on the moon. Whether they’re inspired by true events or completely unrealistic (I’m looking at you, Gravity), space movies have shaped the way we Earthlings view life beyond our planet. While some viewers dream of becoming one of the first people on Mars, others are just in need of a little escape from the issues that plague our world. Either way, here are 50 films that will take you to a galaxy far, far away.

 

There. That oughta keep you busy.
