1. Adrien Grenier finally realizes that Nate is the villain in The Devil Wears Prada

It's generally accepted as fact that Nate, Andy's boyfriend, is the villain in The Devil Wears Prada. But in a total Nate move, Adrien Grenier, who played Nate, didn't understand why. "I was just as immature as him at the time, so I couldn't see his shortcomings, but, after taking time to reflect and much deliberation online, I can realize the truth in that perspective," he said during a cast reunion for the movie's 15th anniversary. He explained what everyone else already knew: Nate hadn't grown up but Andy had. "He couldn't support her like she needed because he was a fragile, wounded boy," he said. Grenier has a message for the Nates of the world: "Come on! Step it up!"

2. Chrissy Teigen apologizes for her 'horrible' tweets: 'I was a troll'

Chrissy Teigen would like to apologize for her "a--hole past." The model on Monday offered an apology for her old "awful" bullying tweets, saying "there is simply no excuse" for them. Teigen has been under fire for resurfaced tweets targeting Courtney Stodden, who revealed that Teigen "would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself." Teigen apologized for being a "troll," writing that she gets "stabbing pains in my body" when she remembers "my a--hole past," and she acknowledged that there were "real people behind the Twitter handles I went after." Now, Teigen says she's "in the process of privately reaching out" to those people to apologize — "like my own version of that show My Name is Earl!"

3. Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton may have secretly gotten married

When Gwen Stefani posted an Instagram photo of herself on Friday and declared, "SHE'S GETTING MARRIIIEEEED," she apparently meant pretty soon — as in, it might have already secretly happened. Stefani and Blake Shelton "may have just secretly tied the knot," Page Six reports, pointing to paparazzi photos in which Stefani appears to be wearing a diamond wedding band. Back in March, Shelton said that "tentatively," the plan was for the two to get married "this summer." According to Page Six, they just got back from Oklahoma, and Shelton apparently built a chapel on the grounds of his ranch there that they planned to use for their wedding. So, congrats to the happy newlywed couple, maybe!

4. Madonna once braided her hair during an entire musical

Ladies and gentlemen, during tonight's performance, please silence your cell phone and refrain from … braiding your hair the entire time? Such a warning was apparently necessary when John Benjamin Hickey performed in Cabaret with Natasha Richardson and Alan Cumming. On Watch What Happens Live, Hickey explained that around 20 years ago, Madonna came to see them in the show, but even though everyone was "so excited" she was there, that excitement was deflated by the fact that she "proceeded to sit and braid her hair through the entire performance." Richardson was apparently quite upset, and Hickey had a simple request: "If you're going to come to the theater, don't sit and braid your hair. Have some manners." Seems reasonable!

5. We missed out on a late-2000s Nicki Minaj/T-Pain collab

T-Pain revealed that before he did all that ghosting, he was ghosted. The rapper was supposed to collaborate with Nicki Minaj in 2007, but she stopped answering him, he said on the 85 South Show. He says he followed up and Minaj said she was busy working on her own music, but she said she doesn't remember that at all. She commented on a clip from T-Pain's interview: "Omg what was I thinking?" She went on to say she was under so much pressure to deliver her own music and has nothing but respect for T-Pain and his music. "My bad babe, all love," Minaj wrote. It's not too late for a collaboration, you guys!
