Read A Love Letter That Lena Dunham Sent To Her Boyfriend

My love life is currently in flux, best described as “genuinely complicated” with a heavy dose of “timing sucks,” and I admit I’m prone to occasional moments of unfair irritation in my encounters with folks who are seemingly simply and easily in love. I expected such a flare-up when I started reading a love letter (well, love…

What “Girls” Season 38 Would Be Like

As popular and critically acclaimed as HBO’s “Girls” may be, chances are we won’t get to see Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna and Jessa doing whatever it is they’d be doing in their golden years. But, say, what do you think they would be doing? This video does a pretty good job imagining what season 38 of the show…

Lena Dunham Isn’t Down With Hustler’s Parody Porn Of “Girls”

Lena Dunham is not psyched about the “Girls” parody porn, “This Ain’t Girls XXX,” tweeting “‘Girls’ is, at its core, a feminist action while Hustler is a company that markets and monetizes a male’s idea of female sexuality. Because a big reason I engage in (simulated) onscreen sex is to counteract a skewed idea…

It should come as no surprise that for all the obsessing we do about Ryan Gosling, baby pandas, Grumpy Cat, Karl Lagerfeld, Chavril and the endless array of Be My Boyfriend candidates, The Frisky is most inspired by the work of the many rad women we look up to. There are so many pop culture…

Lena Dunham Says Men Are Just As Sensitive As Women

“I never chalk up anything to the gender divide and say ‘Well, that’s just a male thing.’  I hate the conventional wisdom that men are supposedly complete pieces of shit and it’s our job as women to put up with them.  Men are just as sensitive and easily victimized as women are, but there’s not…

Lena Dunham’s Secret “Zero Dark Thirty” Audition

God love her, but Lena Dunham has a particular way about her. Which is why Chelsea Davison’s spot-on impersonation of Dunham auditioning for the movie “Zero Dark Thirty” is so hilarious. “You know,” says Davidson’s Dunham, “if I actually have to waterboard you, that is really going to scar me, like, emotionally.” [YouTube]…

The Soapbox: Lisa Lampanelli’s Racist Schtick Abuses The Art Of Comedy

Insult comedian Lisa Lampanelli has made headlines again – for all the wrong reasons. Last week during the Writers Guild Awards, she shamelessly tweeted a picture of she and HBO “Girls” producer and star, Lena Dunham captioned “Me with my Ni**a @LenaDunham of @HBOGirls – I love this beyotch!!”

The interwebs erupted with…

Lena Dunham Says Lisa Lampanelli Using The N-Word Made Her “Supremely Uncomfortable”

Lena Dunham has finally tweeted a response about comedian Lisa Lampanelli’s use of the N-word in a TwitPic caption of the two ladies this Thursday. I believe Lena when she says that she would never use the racial slur herself  — and I realize she didn’t use the word in this — but I…

Patrick Wilson’s Wife, Dagmara Dominczyk, Has Some Thoughts About This Week’s “Girls”

Namely that it’s really not so unrealistic that a guy as hot as Patrick would sleep with a woman with a muffin top like Hannah/Lena Dunham, because Patrick does her (with her size 10 muffin top body) all the time. Suck it, haters. [Twitter via The Gloss]

Guy Talk: Lena Dunham Is Sexy And That’s The Final Word On That

The best way to define what is “sexy” is to first define what is not sexy. Duck face? Not sexy. Fake tans? Not sexy. Internet think pieces about how some young woman making millions in the public aquarium isn’t sexy? Not sexy AND IRONIC.

Lena Dunham’s character Hannah in “Girls” is sexy. Apparently…

“Girls” Goes To Fantasy Land

So how about last night’s “Girls” huh? It was definitely one of the weirder episode of the season and I half-expected Hannah to wake up at the end of the episode to realize her dalliance with a sexy older man (played by Patrick Wilson) was but a dream. Kudos to Lena Dunham for casting such…

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — Yes, That Kareem Abdul-Jabbar — Has A Lot Of Feelings About “Girls”

“I don’t believe that people of color, sexual preference, or gender need to be shaken indiscriminately into every series like some sort of exotic seasoning. If the story calls for a black character, great. A story about a black neighborhood doesn’t necessarily need white characters just to balance the racial profile. But this really seemed…

Lena Dunham On Rihanna’s Responsibility As A Role Model

“[Being a role model] is amazing. It’s an amazing thing and it’s like, it’s a platform that you have to take seriously. Which is why sometimes it’s like I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then it’s like again, I don’t want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but…

Lena Dunham Once Dated Her Own Sandy-The-Black-Republican

“Hannah acts like she has a political issue with [Sandy, the black Republican she is sleeping with], but what she actually has an issue with is him disliking what she does.

The End Of Brooklyn: Reality Show Producers Casting For A “Real-Life ‘Girls'”

Attempting to wrest their laurels on the “Girls” juggernaut, a bunch of reality TV producers have come up with the hideous/genius idea of casting a “real-life” version of the hit HBO show. Reads the producer’s Craigslist pitch:
