  1. I haven't bothered to read whatever it is that Mayim Bialik wrote in the NYTimes Op-Ed but apparently she's getting dragged for it on social media.

      A woman could be covered literally from head to toe and STILL be raped and harassed.  If Blossom does not understand THAT, then it's best just to ignore her dumb ass and move on.

      Bialik suggests that by putting their beauty and sexiness out there, these women were more prone to be taken advantage of -- and therefore should have known better. She implies that the women were complicit in their harassment because of the way they looked/dressed. I find this such a reactionary, knee-jerk appraisal. I wish Bialik would sit down and have a conversation with Rose McGowan who is fiercely speaking truth to power with little backup from Hollywood's elites. She might get a different view of Weinstein's victims which she kind of dismisses as "doe-eyed" bimbos hungry for stardom.

      Looks like Bialik is now engaging in her own version of "Mansplaining" in her addendum to her Op-Ed.

  2. James Van der Beek has also come forward to talk about his experience of being sexually harassed/assaulted " by older, powerful men".

      I was proud of Terry too. I hope this leads to more men coming out and calling out predators too. Everyone needs to do it now. Purge the perverts from Hollywood.

      There have been so many rumours about Taylor Lautner - if anything happened to him I hope he's got enough support to shout out what happened and who did it.

    4. Nothin'ButAttitude

      Nothin'ButAttitude

      I hope he does. I wish Corey Feldman and Elijah Wood, who have spoken about the pervert culture in Hollywood, now come out and name names. 

  3. An actress is now saying that Ben Affleck groped her while he made an appearance on MTV's TRL.

      I'm starting to get the feeling that most men in Hollywood walk around groping women.

      Awwwww hell no. NOT PEYTON SAWYER.

       

      To be fair, men in Hollywood don't just grope women. :ph34r:

      He's always been a dead-eyed frat boy. I thought everybody knew this? Ask THE NANNY.

  4. The U.S. Men eliminated from the World Cup Qualifying for the 1st time since 1986.

      In a way, though, it seems like a fitting cap to an incredibly disappointing year for this country.

  5. Is anyone else suddenly finding the forum space to be practically shunted to one side? Like almost boxed into a column-like width? Pretty compact. Is this something I did why it looks spaced out this way? How can I change it back?

      Okay, thanks, good to know I'm not the only one. Hopefully, the settings will fix themselves.

    3. Taoboi

      Same. Good to hear it MIGHT fix itself.

    4. Franko

      Franko

      Yeah, and a lot of the old images -- like Carl's posts of SOD summaries -- are gone.

  6. Friday evening. Is it Scandal O'Clock yet?

    1. Taoboi

      Taoboi

      LOL!!!! That will be me next week since I work next Thursday.

       

      Loved the premiere this week and watching it live for the first time ever.  She was checking people like no one's business and that ending was I CAN'T WITH HER.

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      It could refer to the show, could refer to the mess in the real WH. Honestly, I'd rather have messy Olivia Pope as POTUS than what lives there right now.

    3. Taoboi

      Taoboi

      That was how I was feeling last night as well...I wish someone would blackmail dirty politicans into getting actual stuff that benefits the people done.

  7. Is Ivana Trump low-key trying to leave her ex 'out there'? Apparently, she encourages him to tweet. I'll just leave that thought out there.

    1. MissLlanviewPA

      MissLlanviewPA

      I've chosen to view her quote as low-key shade, too. I HOPE it is, anyway. I used to like her a lot before her Orange Anal Wart of an ex-husband started his run for President. 

  8. The Megyn Kelly bloopers are circulating social media and getting more looks than her show.

     

  9. Out of the blue, I just thought of Shenell Edmonds because I remembered that her family is from the island of Dominica and wonder how the recent hurricane might have affected her family. 

  10. #DotardTrump is trending!

    1. DRW50

      Disturbing, if not surprising, to see how many will enable North Korea for their own purposes. 

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      ...and the fact that almost no one respects Trump.

  11. 32 years ago, The Golden Girls premiered.

  12. Martin Shkreli seems to be the living embodiment of an American Pyscho.

  13. Armie Hammer and Amber Tamblyn are spilling all the tea on James Woods' predatory predilections.

      God, I loved Armie's response. As if anybody believes his shock and outrage is because of the ages. Trash. Tamblyn's story is sad but expected. I'm glad she said it anyway. And now I know about the movie and will definitely be watching!

    3. DramatistDreamer

      Didn't Woods used to date the young actress who was one of the Glow by Jabot kids? I remember seeing a picture of them together and it looked so wrong to me. Ew.

      I don't know, I had to look this whole situation up. I see that he's had a sting of romances with much younger women.  Hey, that's legal, (so in the big picture whatever), but I believe AT when she says he propositioned her at 16 and said "even better" when she flat out told him her age.  To me the underage thing is the real issue and what makes him a hypocritical sicko.

      *string*

  14. Really feeling for the people of Barbuda, 60% of the island's residents are now homeless. 90% of the structures are totally destroyed. I heard that the sole reported death is a child, which is extremely sad (it would be sad regardless of age, TBH). I hope that is the only fatality, which would be remarkable considering the devastation.

    1. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      It's really awful to hear about this. A lot of people forget that hurricanes also effect countries other than ours, so it's good that you brought up Barbuda. Hopefully they can recover.

    2. DramatistDreamer

      My family are originally from islands, so whenever there is a hurricane, the islands are usually foremost on my mind. I'm fortunate that so far, none of my family members in the Caribbean are in the path of Irma.

      The irony is my family in the U.S. are more likely to be affected since I have relatives in Florida and both Carolinas.

    3. Juliajms

      Very sad.  I hope Jose misses that area.

  15. This board suddenly turned glitchy a few moments ago. What happened?

    1. Errol

      Errol

      It had a hiccup. I gave it it's medicine. It's fine now :)

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      I only noticed because I happened to be posting at that precise moment and my post vanished into the cloud. It was funny and weird and astonishing all at once.  

      Thanks Errol, for fixing and letting me know it wasn't an optical illusion.:lol: 

  16. ABC is losing their biggest ratings generator.

    Shonda Rhimes Moves to Netflix From ABC With Huge Overall Deal

    1. Nothin'ButAttitude

      Nothin'ButAttitude

      Can't blame her. Must be a blessing to not have to answer to network heads and worry about restrictions on a streaming platform. 

       

      I wouldn't be surprised if ABC was losing their sh-t right now though. They know the second Shonda fully leaves ABC that they are screwed. They better take this hint and start searching and grooming new talent to try (and I mean try) and fill the void she'll eventually create. 

    2. ChitHappens

      ChitHappens

      Her current shows stay, and honestly, outside of Greys, the first few years of Scandal and yr one of Murder, has Shonda had a successful show on ABC?  ABC will still make money off of the 3 shows remaining (2 once Scandal is done).  

  17. What's a day without a reboot? The Karate Kid is back y'all!!

      I guess until Will Smith gets tired? Hid company is producing the series for You Tube's Red Channel. 

      Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, who played Daniel and his nemesis Johnny are co-executive producers as well as co-stars.

      *Shrugs*.

    3. Khan

      Khan

      It isn't so much a reboot, though, as it is a sequel, picking up on Daniel and Johnny in the present day.  Nevertheless, I'm unsure whether I'd watch.  Sometimes sequels can be DISASTROUS.

    4. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      And it's on You Tube Red. Ain't no way, I'm $ubscribing.

  18. Spare a thought for Kate Linder (Y&R,Esther Valentine) whose huband just passed away.

      This has to be one of the hardest things to go through. I hope she has a lot of support.

      I hope she's doing alright! :( what a horrible thing to have happen.....hoping she has plenty of love and support around! 

  19. SON's junkware is overwhelming my normally effective ad-blocking software. Fix it, Lord!

      It's always been awful.

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      Until today, my adblocker was really good at blocking everything, so I had no complaints personally, although I am aware that others had multiple problems with adware, and popups.

  20. The political Tea being spilled today is too much!:lol: My teacup runneth over!

      He's been in a not-so-good place for years now. He seems to have been struggling emotionally and physically, to be honest.

      I'm glad nobody was hurt. These people can afford drivers, I just don't understand the decision to drive while impaired. He's lucky no one got hurt.

      Well said.

  24. Around the time when I'm seeing news clips of Comey being followed by helicopters on the drive to LAX like OJ in the Ford Bronco, I wanted to scream "This country is such a f*cking messss!"

      :lol: I shouldn't be laughing but somehow I needed that laugh. I'm on the verge of taking up stress eating.

  25. There was a posting on social media that Queen Elizabeth II's staff have been summoned for an emergeny meeting. I hope it's not a matter of life and death. I hope it's alternative facts, wrongly reported--I mean, it's being tweeted by some Australian media outlet, so who knows?

    1. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      Apparently Prince Phillip is stepping down in the Autumn. Way to get hysterical Australian social media!:rolleyes:
