Ruth Wilson, one of the four leads of Showtime’s The Affair, left the show after four seasons (the show ended with five seasons), and at the time, she told Gayle King on CBS This Morning that she wasn’t allowed to talk about her exit. Ruth may never be able to talk about it due to a non-disclosure agreement. Many speculated that Ruth was actually fired, because she had spoken out earlier about getting paid less than co-star Dominic West. Showtime then released a statement saying that Ruth’s character had simply run its course. Now we’ve got some anonymous sources who claim that Ruth leaving the show may have had a lot do with the toxic environment on set. And I don’t mean there was a best boy or a key grip that was constantly playing “Toxic” by Britney Spears (because I think we can all agree that would be a great work environment).
Lena Dunham has written a 1,300 word apology to Aurora Perrineau which was published by The Hollywood Reporter, and approximately 1,000 of those words are about what a brave survivor she is, and you already know the “she” I am referring to is Lena. If you’re into extreme self-care and somehow missed it (blessings unto you), Lena feels bad because last year she (and her ex-partner Jenni Konner, who I hope doesnt think we forgot about her ass) publicly defended her friend and Girls writer Murray Miller against rape allegations made by Aurora who filed a police report and claimed that Murray sexually assaulted her in his home in 2012 when she was 17-years-old. For this, Lena is sorry.
As of tomorrow, the world will have one less platform on which to receive the blessed teachings of Lena Dunham. Digiday reports that Lena’s newsletter cum blogsite, Lenny Letter, will be going off into 404 Page Not Found heaven after today. But rest assured, those thirsting for more Lena than is reasonable, will always have Instagram.
Based on her last couple of IMDB credits, I was starting to think that Jennifer Garner had told her agent: “From now on, please only bring me movie scripts where my kid sees an angel or my character throws her phone in a fountain after learning the true meaning of family.” But according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jennifer Garner is going back to television. And I’m sorry Sydney Bristow fans, it’s not for a show called Alias: More Aliases.
Dlisted favorite and attention enthusiast Lena Dunham cemented her “Most Hated Faux-Social Justice Warrior” status on Friday when she publicly disputed a woman’s rape allegation. Lena (alongside her frequent collaborator Jenni Konner) released a statement describing actress Aurora Perrineau’s rape allegation against Girls writer Murray Miller as “misreported.” To get an idea of how THAT went over, just take a scroll down yesterday’s comments section of that post and multiply by everyone on Twitter. Lena obviously realized that her backflip off the “women never lie about rape” stance she tweeted a few weeks back had earned her even more hatred than usual. So she released another statement yesterday and pretty much chalks it up to being the wrong time to say that Ms. Perrineau a liar. Continue reading
A former Girls writer has been accused of raping a 17-year-old. And Lena Dunham has suddenly flipped her staunchly feminist script by claiming it’s a dirty lie. You guys, women don’t lie about rape. Unless they accuse one of my friends and then it’s totally been misconstrued, I mean who hasn’t been 17 and woken up with a 34-year-old violating them? It’s like the Brooklyn millennial rite of passage or whatever, I mean, I would NEVER work with a RAPIST. Speaking of which, does anyone have any vagina pebbles for stuffing? That would be another example of “not a rape.” Class dismissed! Sorry, I was just exploring Lena Dunham’s possible mindset. Continue reading
