The Lifetime Movie About The Steubenville Rape Case Is Very, Well, Lifetime

OOOF
  • If you have literally nothing else in the world to do tomorrow night, Lifetime will be airing “The Assault,” a new made-for-TV movie based on the Steubenville rape case. Although it would appear, to put it mildly, that some facts of the story are massively altered. The movie opens with the victim attempting suicide by lighting herself on fire, and she soon reveals that her mother has just died — neither of which are true of the real-life case. Apparently, a gruesome rape and subsequent cover-up and shunning of the victim isn’t dramatic enough in itself to Lifetime? [Slate]

Laverne Cox Has An MTV Documentary Airing In October

Yaaassss! Laverne Cox has an MTV documentary premiering October 17, titled “Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word.” The documentary will feature profiles of seven transgender people ranging in age from 12 to 24. Cox will act as host of the documentary, discussing aspects of being transgender like coming out and how race and trans identities interact.

Is Laverne Cox unstoppable? I’m pretty sure she is. In the last two years, she’s played Sophia on “Orange Is The New Black,” was featured in V and Essence, and made the cover of TIME, was awarded for her advocacy by GLAAD and Out, appeared in a John Legend video, and she’s worked with the Sylvia Rivera Law Project.

Zosia Mamet: Feminism Is “Not About Running A Fortune 500 Company”

“I think that the term [feminist] has been incredibly bastardized. I am a huge advocate of empowering women — the idea of women supporting each other and supporting themselves and making strong choices that make them happy. I think often feminism gets a very narrow definition. It’s not about making shit-tons of money and running a Fortune 500 company. It’s about doing what makes you feel good as a woman, and if that’s being a stay-at-home mom, you can be just as much of a feminist that way as you can as a fighter pilot. So in that way, yeah, of course.”

It’s a sign of the zeitgeist, I guess, when an otherwise frothy interview with an actress on one of the hottest shows on TV right now turns from face wash and lipstick to feminism? That’s what I choose to believe at least: “Girls” star Zosia Mamet spoke with Allure about makeup tips and fielded a question about whether she calls herself a feminist. Mamet, who writes a column for Glamour, has written a critique of “lean in” feminism before. Her answer was somewhat one-dimensional — I mean, it takes an enormous amount of privilege in the first place to choose to be a stay-at-home mom — but otherwise I solidly agree with Mamet. Women’s equality is about much more than a privileged, elite group of women being financially successful under capitalism. [Allure] [Image via AKM-GSI]

Exclusive: Robin Thicke Offered Tourists Hugs And Cash To Help Him Flee Hurricane-Ravaged Cabo

Exclusive: Robin Thicke Offered Tourists Hugs And Cash To Help Him Flee Hurricane-Ravaged Cabo

Singer Robin Thicke was just like thousands of tourists who were stranded in Cabo San Lucas as a result of the devastating effects of Hurricane Odile.

One thing that set Thicke apart from the other 30,000 panicked and stranded tourists, was that he attempted to use his celebrity and some cash to get out of Cabo faster than the less famous folks.

The “Blurred Lines’ singer was vacationing in Cabo with his son, a nanny, a woman who looked to be his publicist and another gentleman who seemed to be Robin’s pal.

According to a Celebuzz source, Robin was doing everything in his power to get out of Cabo. At the airport, a woman associated with Robin (who was way, way back in line of 750-1000 people) approached a group of tourists near the front of the line. Keep reading »

Love Is Dead: Mama June & Sugar Bear Split!

While it looks like all is well for Jay Z and Beyonce (PHEW!), another beloved American couple is on the rocks, threatening to destroy my faith in everlasting love. According to TMZ, Mama June and Sugar Bear from TLC’s “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo,” and parents to its star pageant queen Alana, are headed for divorce after June discovered Sugar Bear (real name: so what, who cares) cheating on her and kicked him to the curb. Apparently, June has repeatedly caught Sugar Bear trolling online dating sites, including Plenty O’ Fish where his profile handle is “Georgiafighter31054.” Though June and Sugar Bear never married, they had been together for years and Sugar Bear was a de facto father to June’s other children, Pumpkin, Chubbs and Chickadee. They also had a commitment ceremony last year, which was filmed for their TLC show. TMZ says June is over Sugar Bear’s trifling ways and plans on moving out and taking the kids with her. This is so disappointing. Wasn’t June’s biscuit enough for him? Did Sugar Bear stop seeing the beautimousness of her forklift foot? You know what, it’s Sugar Bear’s loss. June deserves someone who appreciates all the vajiggle jaggle she has to offer. [TMZ] [Photo: Splash News]

Madonna Gives A Bottle Head On 2015 Calendar Cover

Madonna Gives A Bottle Head On 2015 Calendar Cover

As our pals over at Idolator point out, Madonna’s 2015 calendar cover harkens back to a pivotal scene in the Material Girl’s racy documentary, “Truth Or Dare,” in which Madge demonstrates her oral sex skills on a bottle as her backup dancers look on. Rewatching the scene, I realize how much of my own blowjob expertise came (heh) straight from Madonna’s playbook. Anyway, I love this the cover of this calendar — and I’m very excited to find out what other images are inside. [Idolator]
