TIME magazine announced their annual Person of the Year, and whoever had their money on the #MeToo movement has reason to quietly celebrate (cheering wildly over your winnings will seem just a *tad* tacky given the circumstances). TIME’s People of the Year for 2017 are the “silence breakers,” or those who bravely told their shitty, awful stories of sexual harassment and assault.
Ashley Judd sat down with ABC’s Diane Sawyer for Good Morning America to talk about outing Harvey Weinstein as an “alleged” (*eye-roll*) drooling pig cretin pervface. Ashley was one of the first of what now appears to be dozens upon dozens of women finally speaking out about Harv. How Diane didn’t vom hearing first-hand about Harvey’s allegedly decades-long attempts to groom young women as his personal masseuses and/or sexy shower surveillance is baffling. Is there a word more emphatic than “cringe?” “Shudder?” “Retch” is pretty good. Continue reading
You gotta be a new kind of dickhead to answer a claim of sexual harassment by insinuating that your accuser is most likely lying because she’s had a tough life including getting sexually abused. Harvey Weinstein IS that new kind of dickhead.
Harvey Weinstein talked to the New York Post about all of the allegations that came out in The New York Times yesterday and he refuted Ashley Judd’s claim that he sexually harassed her during a hotel room meeting in 1997. Oddly, this was in concert with the lengthy and rambling apology he issued to the New York Times for “bad behavior.” So you did harass women just not Ashley? It’s like the flipside of the boy who cried wolf. It’s the boy who cried “wanna watch me shower?”
As expected, The New York Times published an exposé about how movie mogul and Miramax/Weinstein Company founder Harvey Weinstein is allegedly a serial sexual harasser who has been using his power to creep on and prey on women for nearly three decades. This will come as the opposite of shocking to anyone who has followed the not-so-secret gross adventures of Harvey’s casting couch. The Times spoke to several actresses and former employees, and painted Harvey as a white Bill Cosby sans the whole “drugging” thing.
What you are looking at above is Ashley Judd, Jim Belushi, Amanda Seyfried, David Duchovny, Naomi Watts, Matthew Lillard, Michael Cera, Jennifer Jason Leigh, and Trent Reznor. And if you can believe it, you’re only looking at less than 20% of the cast of the Twin Peaks reboot. I hope Showtime knows how to place a casual encounters ad on Craigslist, because something tells me they’re going to need to make a couple extra bucks to make sure all those paychecks don’t bounce.
The cast list for Showtime’s Twin Peaks reboot was announced today. We already knew that most of the original cast was open to coming back. But thanks to Showtime, we now know that pretty much everyone in David Lynch’s Rolodex is coming with them. Variety has a screen grab of the cast list, and I’ve put it after the cut.
I feel like “Ashley Judd fights back” is also the way you could describe the plot of 97% of the movies on Ashley Judd’s IMDB page. But Ashley Judd is fighting back for real this time! Clear your schedule, Tommy Lee Jones, you might be needed. During an upcoming interview for Weekend Today, Ashley Judd confessed that she was recently the victim of online Twitter trolls and she’s getting the police involved, because nobody fucks with Ashley Judd.
Ashley says it all started last weekend when she was live tweeting a Kentucky Wildcats game. Ashley took a swipe at the Arkansas Razorbacks by tweeting (and later deleting) “I think Arkansas is playing dirty”. That apparently was enough to piss off some Arkansas fans, who then responded by tweeting violent threats at her:
