ET Obsessions: 'Life of Kylie,' Kesha's 'Rainbow' Album, 'Difficult People,' and Everything Princess Diana
By Andi Rocco
Here at ET, we're obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of Aug. 7 to Aug. 13, this is what we're most excited about:
Why We're Obsessed With 'Difficult People'
The sassy sitcom that raises self-involvement to new comedic heights is back! Difficult People's Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner return for a third season on Hulu, alongside the rest of the cast, including Andrea Martin, James Urbaniak, and Gabourey Sidibe, plus an impressive array of guest stars: Stockard Channing, Tony Hale and Vanessa Williams! Meanwhile, the show will also welcome back Fred Armisen and scene-stealer Jackie Hoffman. During ET's chat on the phone with the cast, Cole Escola -- who is also returning to the series -- dished on his on-screen ex-wife Trish, who will be played by Williams. "I don't think that anything gets better than that," Escola says of Williams, teasing that "she was so game" for the show's antics. "It was very bizarre because we had this very intimate scene before we even had really met each other."
The 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death is an irresistible TV milestone, one that will be recognized in an assortment of programming. Seeking to stand apart from the wave of documentaries, HBO premiered Diana, Our Mother: Her Life and Legacy, offering an intimate interview with Prince William and Prince Harry. TLC explored the conspiracy theories surrounding Diana's tragic death with Princess Diana: Tragedy or Treason?. This week, ABC will premiere a two-night program, The Story of Diana, that will include archival footage of the Princess of Wales. And NatGeo will premiere an illuminating new documentary narrated entirely by the princess herself, Diana Herself: Diana: In Her Own Words on Aug. 14. Concluding the series of documentaries this month is Smithsonian Channel’s Diana: The Day We Said Goodbye (narrated by Kate Winslet) and Diana and the Paparazzi, both airing Aug. 27.
The Story of Diana part one airs Wednesday, Aug. 9 and part two airs Thursday, Aug. 10 on ABC.
Why We're Obsessed With Kesha's 'Rainbow' Album
After a lengthy legal battle and a difficult emotional journey comes Kesha's comeback album, Rainbow. The LP is more than a kiss-off to old demons -- it's an artistic feat for the 30-year-old singer-songwriter. "It's about embracing your past, but not letting it define you," the singer said in a Huffington Post op-ed explaining her third single "Learn to Let Go." "Learn from your mistakes but don't dwell on them, and if you feel like someone has wronged you, let that be their problem -- not yours." And for all you Animals out there, Kesha will also be hitting the road for a 24-date tour kicking off Sept. 9. in Birmingham, Alabama, and concluding in Los Angeles, California, on Nov. 1.

We found just the foodies to tantalize your taste-buds -- culinary curators Sheila and Marilyn Brass are taking you along on their mission to tackle their culinary bucket list...one bite at a time! The new six-episode series, The Food Flirts, will feature the Boston-based sisters who "flirt" their way into chefs' kitchens to uncover ethnically unique and delicious delights, then head home to experiment for themselves -- creating cross-cultural culinary mash-ups that viewers can try at home. The Julia Child-inspired pair describe themselves as "two roundish women in our seventies who have a combined total of 128 years of home baking and cooking experience." While the series may highlight food, the real show is between the two sisters delivering clever bon mots. Age is just a number here.
We may think we know everything about the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, but after Sunday's premiere of Life of Kylie, it's clear there's a lot more to Kylie Jenner. The two-part season premiere took fans into the charming life of the 19-year-old reality star, even showcasing the time Jenner crashed a high school prom, as well as her experience while going to therapy for the first time. "There's two sides of me," Jenner says, adding "there's an image that I feel constantly pressured to keep up with and who I really am around my friends." And that's just what cameras will reveal while following Jenner and BFF Jordyn Woods as the two embark on all kinds of adventures. It's going to be a wild ride, but we're happy to take it with Kylie!
