Frisky Rant: “Walk Of Shame”‘s Problematic Plot Shames Sex Workers & Drug Addicts For Cheap Laughs

Frisky Rant: "Walk Of Shame"'s Problematic Plot Shames Sex Workers & Drug Addicts For Cheap Laughs

Oh, I wanted to like “Walk Of Shame.” I wanted to love it. What’s not to love about a movie starring Elizabeth Banks, Gillian Jacobs and Tig Notaro? I was ready for a hilarious rom-com starring several of my favorite funny ladies.

Instead, in the screening room, I sat next to my friend who runs IndieWire’s Women And Hollywood blog and we spent the entire moving grabbing each other’s arm in the dark and incredulously whispering, “This is so fucking offensive.” And not edgy-funny-offensive. Like, ew-offensive.

Lordy, Lordy, Lordy, where do I start? (Spoilers ahead, obviously…) Keep reading »

Elizabeth Banks Will Direct “Pitch Perfect 2″

  • Elizabeth Banks will make her directorial debut on “Pitch Perfect 2.” Yes, there is going to be a sequel! [Hollywood Reporter]
  • Heidi Klum has split from her bodyguard boyfriend. [People]
  • It wouldn’t be “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” if Kim wasn’t trying to freak out her brother Rob with breast milk. [Gossip Cop]
  • Here’s Macklemore’s freshman yearbook photo. He looks exactly the same. [Jezebel]
  • Sharon Osbourne had an “explosive confrontation” with Jordan Feldstein, Jonah Hill’s music manager brother, at a pre-Grammy party and threw a glass of water at him. And lucky for us, there’s photo evidence. [E! Online]
  • A jilted ex-boyfriend tried to stop one of the weddings at the Grammys from happening. Whoa, that could have turned into some “The Graduate” shit real fast. [TMZ] Keep reading »

Elizabeth Banks Is Having The Worst Morning After In The “Walk Of Shame” Trailer

"Walk Of Shame"

The walk of shame doesn’t have to be so bad — but then we wouldn’t have “Walk Of Shame,” would we? Elizabeth Banks stars in the new rom-com about a reporter who is up for a news anchor position, but gets stranded in downtown Los Angeles after a hookup (with James Marsden, mmm) the morning before her interview. This necessitates running all over L.A. in a tight yellow bandage dress, perfect hair and heels. Truthfully, the movie looks pretty dumb, though I love a movie with a strong funny lady lead. And I love seeing Tig Notaro get work. “Walk Of Shame” is out on April 25th. Who am I kidding? I’m gonna watch. [Variety]

Style Stealer: Elizabeth Banks Is Ready For Spring

Here we have Elizabeth Banks modeling the perfect outfit for spring weekends: comfy chambray shirt, cuffed colored jeans, simple sandals, fabulous handbag, and ridiculously huge sunglasses. She wore this ensemble to the hair salon, but you could wear it to brunch with friends, wandering around the farmers’ market, thrift shopping, traffic court, or wherever else your weekend might take you. The best part? I found all the pieces for around $70 or less. Get the shopping details after the jump! Keep reading »

I think, a true disservice what’s going on right now with all these celebrity moms … [F]irst of all, I just want to remind people that celebrities generally are genetically superior human beings on a certain level anyway … they’re mostly thin, you know, they’ve got trainers, they work out, they’ve got money, they’ve got the ability, you know, and they are normally genetically predisposed to being thin people anyway, so like these women who are holding up, you know, certain people as their benchmark after they’ve had a child, like just go be with your kid for a minute … don’t get to the gym right away. It’s alright. This is not how it’s supposed to be, everybody. Calm down.

Genetically blessed “30 Rock” star Elizabeth Banks brought some real talk to Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast, reminding us humans that celebrities are a superior class of human being. Lest you think she sounds like a braggy asshat, Banks was discussing the pressure on new moms to drop the baby weight and how celebrities should not be the guidepost against whom they measure. (She and her husband brought their two kids into the world via a surrogate due to her “broken belly.”) It’s refreshing sometimes to hear a celebrity admit that Hollywood is just smoke and mirrors and juice cleanses. [Huffington Post]

Elizabeth Banks feminist-show
  • Oh squee of squees! Elizabeth Banks from “Wet Hot American Summer” and “30 Rock” is producing a sitcom for CBS about “the culture clash as a feminist professor rooms with Playboy Bunnies and they all struggle for their own sort of empowerment.” I’m over Playboy Bunnies as a pop cultural discussion point for feminism. But whatever! I guess I’ll have to take my feminism on mainstream TV where I can get it.  [Perez Hilton]
  • The man who raped a 73-year-old woman in Central Park last month also sexually assaulted two other women on the day of the attack before he was arrested. He had also sexually assaulted two elderly women in the past. Hmm, here’s an idea: don’t let rapists out of jail.  [NYMag.com]
  • A brief history of Mitt Romney flip-flopping about abortion, based on his recent comments that messing with abortion rights is not on his agenda. It’s also probably worth reading his “Pro-Life Pledge” on the National Review website, too.  [Jezebel, National Review] Keep reading »
