If 2017 taught us anything, it’s that any person with a penis and a shred of power is a scuzzy scuzzy perv who likely did foul things to women and/or potted plants. When Harvey Weinstein’s mess blew up and into the open, everyone waved their pitchforks at Meryl Streep for dabbing herself with Ivanka Trump’s complicit perfume. Now that she has a movie to promote, she’s holding up a mirror to the Trump gals when called an enabler and says, “I know you are, but what am I?!” Continue reading
If 2017 was the year all the handsy bathrobe-wrapped assholes in Hollywood were publicly outed, then it looks like 2018 is the year where women officially stop having to put up with it. It’s retribution time in Hollywood. 300 actresses, agents, writers, directors, producers, and entertainment executives recently took out an ad in The New York Times announcing an initiative to fight sexual harassment in Hollywood and workplaces nationwide.
The Hollywood Hunger Games are being played out here in these streets and most of the town doesn’t even know that they pulled the short straw and have been reaped. Shoot a cannon for Meryl Streep and Rose McGowan. Both were critical players in the nasty game of “she knew” that The Guardian reports was devised by a right wing guerilla artist who goes by the name of Sabo. Turns out, the posters that went up all over Los Angeles this week bearing Meryl’s face with a red banner reading “she knew” across her eyes, were in retaliation for her politics. Her comments about Harvey Weinstein and the subsequent backlash were merely the fuel.
…does Rose McGowan have an alibi??
Meryl Streep spent the last few days sitting by the phone waiting to hear a call from her second-favorite Charmed actress (sorry, Rose, Shannen Doherty will always be top of the hot mess heap!). Rose never called Meryl, but now we know what she could have been doing instead. A slew of posters have popped up around Los Angeles accusing Meryl of being a pupil at the Ivanka Trump Skewl of Complicit Hos. Continue reading
When Meryl Streep heard the news about Harvey Weinstein’s alleged decades of creep terror, her wacky glasses damn near dropped off her face from the shock. Meryl claimed she knew nothing about Harvey’s “reputation,” but that she was disgusted nonetheless. Later she referred to what he allegedly did as a “gargantuan example of disrespect.”
That last word – disrespect – really rubbed Rose McGowan the wrong way. Rose hissed at Meryl that it’s not disrespect, it’s a crime, and proceeded to call Meryl “a lie.” Rose came for Meryl again last weekend after it was reported that some actresses will be silently protesting Hollywood’s sexual harassment problem by wearing black to the Golden Globes. Rose accused Meryl of putting the silent in silent protest while happily collecting awards from the industry. Meryl is calling bullshit on Rose’s comments.
Cher! That’s Cher as a sassy, rich gramma! Wait. Did they kill off Meryl Streep? In the trailer, they’re talking about her like she’s in the ground. Did Rose McGowan write the screenplay?
Watch it before they yank it!

This looks all sorts of awful, much like the first one. The first one was all sorts of awful but still somewhat enjoyable if only for laughing at Pierce Brosnan trying to sing. But a sequel means lesser-known ABBA songs and a girl that looks nothing like Meryl playing Young Meryl. Did anyone need to know the history of those overalls? Nope.
If Meryl is actually in this movie, it would reunite her with her Silkwood castmate Cher. Silkwood is a boss-ass movie and Cher won the Oscar for her portrayal of a depressed lesbian roommate. One of my friends is probably going to force me to go see this with them and that will make me a depressed lesbian roommate.
