Rihanna rice cakes photo
  • Rihanna tweeted a photo of a bag of rice cakes with sunglasses and hoop earrings, which some people are saying is a racist potshot at Chris Brown’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, who is half-Vietnamese. Considering how Rihanna was rightfully outraged when a Dutch magazine called her the n-word last year, I’m surprised she would do something like this. [PopCrush, Twitter.com/Rihanna]

Elisabeth Moss: People are constantly asking if [Don Draper and Peggy Olsen are] gonna sleep together. I always get annoyed, because their relationship is more than that. And to keep that going over five years without selling out and having something else happen — that to me is really interesting and rarely done well.

Jon Hamm: People want to put us in a “Sam and Diane” box, but it’s about their mutual appreciation for the work. That’s where the material strikes its resonant chord, when it’s ostensibly about one thing and then it becomes about so much more. That’s the fun thing about Don and Peggy, and that’s the deeper thing about “Mad Men.”

If you thought this was the season that Don and Peggy were finally going to get together on “Mad Men,” you were wrong (again). Which is how it should be. [NYmag.com Vulture]

Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown University Law student who was called a “slut” and a “prostitute” by Rush Limbaugh last week, appeared on “The View” this morning. She utterly floored me with her articulation, composure and professionalism.  

Three weeks ago, Fluke was barred from testifying to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committe about women’s access to affordable birth control. Instead an all-male panel trashed President Obama’s compromise on health care reform that if religiously-affiliated employers won’t pay for contraception for their employees, insurers must pick up the cost themselves. Sandra Fluke was later given an opportunity to testify to a group of Democrats, although it was not official, in which she explained how female students at Georgetown are struggling to pay the cost of birth control. Rush Limbaugh then attacked her on air, calling her a “slut” and a “prostitute,” and demanded she post videos of herself having sex online. Keep reading »

Amber Tamblyn Punks Tyrese After Amber Rose Email Mixup

Amber Tamblyn, Amber Rose & Tyrese photo

How do I explain how awesome Amber Tamblyn is? I can’t even do it justice. You pretty much have to read this whole thing and listen to all the music. But I’ll try. So here goes: 

Amber Tamblyn (from “Sister of the Traveling Pants” [Also, she was the original Emily Quartermaine on "General Hospital"! -- Editor]) and Tyrese (from lots of shirtless posters and movies) were both CCed on an email from a mutual friend. Amber’s email happens to be registered as Amber Rose, because her full name is Amber Rose Tamblyn. Understandably, this confused Tyrese. So he sent out an email to Amber Tamblyn thinking she was Amber Rose (from all the nasty breakup songs on Kanye West’s last solo album) trying — I think? — to flirt with her vis-a-vis being interested in her budding music career.

Hilarity ensued.  Keep reading »
