Charlie Sheen isn’t even on “Two and a Half Men” anymore, but his legacy continues— his legacy of womanizing, that is. I am referring to the newest “Two” character, played by Amber Tamblyn, Charlie Harper’s daughter who — wait for it — is also a womanizer.
Sure, it’s a sign of progress that an actress will play a lesbian on one of the country’s most mainstream of mainstream of shows. (Although I’m scratching my head as to why Tamblyn, who acts in abortion rights PSAs and edits the poetry section of BUST magazine, would join the cast.) But it’s just a little bit frustrating that as Charlie Harper’s kid, Tamblyn’s character Jenny is basically serving as a female stand-in for her womanizing father.

David Cross is a convincingly scary paternalistic gynotician — aka a politician masquerading as an OB-GYN qualified to make reproductive health decisions.

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 »
I feel like my grandma for saying this, but don’t these ladies seem like such smart, sweet, funny role models? [Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 premiere, New York City, 7/28/08] Keep reading »
