The Rendezvous: Your Weekly Review in a Few
Posted On May 21, 2016
Happy Saturday, party people! Here’s what is going on in the world if you have been too busy working overtime, sleeping overtime, or taking an overload of selfies!
Mayday: Egyptian Airplane Disappears
Yesterday, an EgyptAir plane going from Paris to Cairo disappeared from radar. Flashback to the Malaysia Airlines crisis of 2014. Today, naval forces have spotted a body parts, personal belongings, and other debris from EgyptAir Flight 804 in the Mediterranean Sea. The plane had 66 people on board, including two babies. Investigators say they’re considering terrorism and technical failure as possible causes. The fact that there was no distress call from the pilot and that the plane swerved wildly before plummeting into the sea have officials believing this was most likely a terror attack. Whatever the case may be, our hearts go out to the families of those on board EgyptAir Flight 804.
Meanwhile at the Election…
As of late, Hilary is favored over Trump (even Republicans are siding with Hilz). In an attempt to swing the right back to the right- Trump released a wish list of nominees he wishes to fill the empty seat on The Supreme Court- which of course is conservative asf. Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders is also gaining momentum, crushing Hilary and winning Oregon. He lost to Hilary in Kentucky by a half a percentage point. But it seems the candidates have bigger things to worry about as of yesterday. US intelligence said it has evidence that foreign hackers are spying on them. Hide your nudez candidates!
Blake Lively with the Oakland Booty

Glamour goddess Blake Lively has been breaking our necks with her unbelievably stunning Cannes wardrobe. She was feelin’ herself this past Tuesday when she posted a front and back photo of her on the red carpet and captioned it, “LA face with an Oakland booty.” Instagram users were outraged at her “racist comments.” But Sir Mix-A-Lot had her back. “For her to look at her butt and that little waist and to say ‘L.A. face with an Oakland booty,’ doesn’t that mean that the norm has changed, that the beautiful people have accepted our idea of beautiful? That’s the way I took it,” said Mix-A-Lot. There is no denying the LA face, the Oakland booty, or the excellent execution of her Instagram photo.
Bye-Bye Callie Torres
Our favorite spunky lesbian orthopedic doc, is done with her shifts at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Sara Ramirez, who plays Dr. Torres, has announced her exit from Grey’s Anatomy. “I’m deeply grateful to have spent the last 10 years with my family at Grey’s Anatomy and ABC, but for now I’m taking some welcome time off,” Ramirez, 40, said. “Shonda’s been so incredible to work for, and we will definitely continue our conversations! I send my love to Ellen [Pompeo], the rest of the cast and crew, and I look forward to always being a part of the Shondaland family!” Callie is like the friend we all need- the one who tells us like it is no matter what we want to hear. She’s spontaneous and wildly passionate in everything she does and for that, we will miss her. I guess this means our dreams of Callie and Arizona ending up together aren’t happening. Sigh.
Houston, We Have a Problem
It was reported this past week that a space rock- now officially named asteroid EF195, was the closest asteroid to ever approach earth (EVER)! Moreover, they realized that the EF195 flyby had passed at about 23,900 miles (38,463 km) from the surface of our planet, or about 0.1 the Earth-moon distance. If you have no idea what that means- it’s where TV and other communications satellites orbit the Earth. So pretty freakin’ close. This sounds like a job for Bruce Willis and Ben Affleck!
