Get Ready to Bookmark the 2 Dope Queens' Self-Care Advice and Revisit It on the Daily
Phoebe Robinson and Jessica Williams might be saying goodbye to 2 Dope Queens after its upcoming second season, but they're doing anything but disappearing. The duo, who vaulted their popular podcast to a series of HBO specials, are bringing the project to an end after its second season for a good reason: they're just too damn busy with their various books, TV writing gigs, and movie roles.

We caught up with Jessica and Phoebe at an HBO brunch in their honor at Sundance, where we also witnessed a panel discussion between the dopest of queens and CNN political commentator Angela Rye. The panel covered everything from hair braiding and beatboxing to Michelle Obama - a former guest on the podcast - whom Jessica said "was very hydrated. Her skin was like mmmmmmm. Like when you bite into candied yams and you're like, 'These are amazing.'"

Impressed? So are we.

Celebrity finance tracker Celebrity Net Worth reports Gaga's most recent net worth as $300 million. For the most part, her bank account has grown thanks to her astonishing music career over the course of the last decade. Her first album, The Fame, was released in 2008, and she hasn't looked back since, with five studio albums, plus several EPs and compilations albums that have all become massive hits.

Jon Snow may know nothing, but to us, he's everything. Thirty-two-year-old English actor Kit Harington has portrayed the incredibly sexy Lord Commander of the Watch on Game of Thrones for almost a decade now, and it's difficult to imagine him doing anything other than guarding the Wall and battling White Walkers.
