And if you don’t have children, have you checked off all of your summer travel plans? Or perhaps you didn’t go anywhere further than your local green market. That’s perfectly fine because home is where the heart is — so let’s love on some new content.
The first two episodes of “Mike” are streaming now.
‘Selling the OC’
So imagine my glee when Netflix announced a spin-off of the popular real estate series “Selling Sunset.”
This reality series still follows the Oppenheim Group — headed by twin brothers Jason and Brett Oppenheim — but focuses on the firm’s second office in Newport Beach in California’s Orange County, which means new realtors, new drama and new multimillion homes to lust over.
It’s streaming now.
‘House of Ho’ Season 2
And it’s not just their mega-mansions. I feel zero shame when it comes to my obsession with the wealthy.
Enter a new season of “House of Ho,” which centers around a Vietnamese American family — led by patriarch Binh Ho and his wife, Hue Ho, immigrants who built a multimillion dollar real estate and banking empire in Houston.
Season two introduces some new cast members from the broader family tree, including more cousins, some future in-laws — and some of their families, too. That means there’s plenty of opportunities for more conflict and snark alongside the luxury we have come to love.
The first three episodes are streaming on HBO Max (which is owned by CNN’s parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery).
Two things to listen to
‘God Did’ by DJ Khaled
And another one.
DJ Khaled is releasing his 13th studio album, “God Did,” and the uber-producer sounds more excited about the new project than his listeners.
“HOV DID!!! HOV VOCALS IS IN! WOW,” reads the caption for a series of photos, which included his shocked reaction to the cameo.
The pair teamed up before, along with rapper Future, for the 2016 single “I Got the Keys.”
“God Did” is out now.
‘Will of the People’ by Muse
Muse is not only releasing a new album, but getting into the non-fungible token game: “Will of the People,” the band’s ninth studio album, is also available as an NFT edition.
“Will of the People” is also out now.
One thing to talk about
Is August now the new June when it comes to celebrity weddings?
I could tick off a list of reasons why I find this couple adorable, including that they first connected via social media (as did my husband and I — though our meet was on the granddaddy of social media, AOL Instant Messenger). But ultimately, I think I’m just really happy to see anyone who survives Bachelor Nation and finds true love.
Something to sip on
Snoop Dogg is an example to hip-hop artists everywhere.
I’ve often wondered if rappers ever “age” out of the game, given that some of our favorites, like Snoop, are now in their 50s.
Way to expand your empire, Snoop!
