“[Jack Gleeson who plays boy-king Joffrey] really is lovely. After our takes when he’s mean to me, he’ll come over and have a nice chat with me. It’s kind of surreal. I had one particularly horrible moment with Joffrey, and then he came over afterwards and he said [imitates male Irish accent], “Yes. How are you?” I kind of wish he would do more television interviews so that people can see what he’s really like, because there is so much hate for Joffrey, I feel protective of Jack now. If I were him, I’d be petrified that people would come up and slap me on the street! [Laughs.] I should be his bodyguard.”
–The lovely Sophie Turner, who plays poor petrified Sansa Stark on “Game Of Thrones.” Apparently when the series author George R.R. Martin met Gleeson, he told him, “Job well done. Everyone hates you.” [NYMag]
Meet Thomas O’Malley Flufferpants and her dog companion Murkin. Both were rescued — Thomas was a feral cat and Murkin a shelter dog — and developed a strange attraction. The pair are virtually inseparable these days, after Murkin helped nurse Thomas through surgery to remove two infected teeth. Love takes many strange forms.
Last night on “Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding,” Kim Zolciak — one of the few “Real Housewives” to score her own spin-off — finally showed what she’s been hiding underneath her omnipresent wig. I have to admit, I’m underwhelmed. I realize that she’s only really giving us a look at her real hair after it’s been dyed and styled to perfection, but still, I expected bald patches given that we’ve never seen her wig-less. Her real hair is lovely! Much better than those sausage curls she normally has. How … boring. Clip above!
Apparently there are other options for the deceased besides burial or cremation. There’s cakation, where the corpse is transformed into a cake that loved ones can enjoy a slice of. My dearly beloved, we are gathered here today for photo captions. Have at it! [The Clearly Dope]
Brian McKnight has released the “YouPorn Anthem” and let me just say the song is filthy. It is even more graphic than his song “If You’re Ready to Learn”, which was released in April. If you recall the latter was a song about a woman’s nether region. Well now, the smooth crooner and now dirty crooner that he is has released a track that seems to be about yet another body part … the anal region. Read more…
“Well, everyone knew [Joan's husband] had to go at some point, right? I mean, you can’t rape your wife in the office and not expect to go away. … It was the first time it was mentioned and I think it was a long time coming, for the audience in particular. I think everyone kept thinking he was going to go off to war and die at war. But I think Matt [Weiner] probably had a very good time keeping him around while people were going, ‘What’s going on with this guy?’ [Laughs] And he just kept being there and he just kept coming home! And I would have been disappointed if there wasn’t a moment that the rape, and that instant, wasn’t mentioned. So I found it very satisfying that she finally got to say, ‘You’re not a good man. And you know exactly what I’m talking about.’ And every viewer knows exactly what you’re talking about too, so it’s just this very satisfying moment.”
– Christina Hendricks talks to GQ about Joan Holloway Harris’s soon-to-be-ex douchebag doctor husband, who raped her in season two. There have been more than a few rapes and sexual assaults on “Mad Men,” but Joan’s was probably the most shocking. Not every person saw it as rape because they were engaged, seemingly a happy couple together, and she’s such a sexual woman. Yet Joan clearly didn’t want to have sex inside Don Draper’s office and her then-fiancé forced himself on her anyway, so viewers not only had to confront the fact that Joan’s “perfect man” was not as perfect as we thought, but also that date rape is a thing that happens, including by people you love.
