Ronan Farrow To Host Show On MSNBC

  • Ronan Farrow, a humanitarian, Rhodes scholar and former Obama administration wonk, who also happens to be the son of Mia Farrow and maaaaybe Frank Sinatra, will host an hour-long show on MSNBC.  I normally hatehatehate nepotism, but Ronan Farrow is so freaking smart and accomplished. [And hot, she forgot to add. -- Amelia] [Entertainment Weekly]
  • Zooey Deschanel is producing two new TV shows: “Freelancers,” about a lawyer who loses her job and then has to rent coworking space, and “Lies I Tell My Daughter,” based on a Hello Giggles column by Julia Obst. [AV Club]
  • Charlie Hunnam was reportedly only going to earn $125K to play Christian Grey in “50 Shades Of Grey,” perhaps explaining why he suddenly dropped out of the film this weekend. Meanwhile, producers are blaming his departure on “over-the-top demands.” [Eonline, RadarOnline]

“… We have become so gun loving, so blasé about home-grown violence that in my lifetime alone, far more Americans have been casualties of domestic gunfire than have died in all our wars combined…

I’ve always taken a Libertarian approach to Hollywood’s first amendment rights, and gun collectors second amendment rights, and i stood by those libertarian beliefs after columbine, after aurora and after Arizona. Those young men who slaughtered innocents were crazy after all, and they would have found another way to klil their victims if their guns of choice were not available…I knew that day that the ideologies of my past career were no longer relevant to the future that I want, that I want for my children.” Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: I Think They’re Just Messing With Us Now

  • Oh, look at this all-male TV panel that MSNBC convened to discuss yesterday’s all-male hearing discussion about birth control coverage in healthcare reform
  • Oklahoma’s state Senate advanced a “fetal personhood” bill on Wednesday that criminalizes all abortion by defining a “person” as the fertilized egg. A bill like this would also criminalize in vitro fertilization, stem cell research, and some birth control. This is the bill that had a proposed amendment by State Sen. Constance Johnson, who sought to make it illegal for men to masturbate and waste sperm! [News OK] Keep reading »

Who’s been called in as “experts” on cable news to discuss the current debate over birth control? More men than women, that’s who. Across all the networks, 91 men appeared to talk about the birth control debate, while only 55 women appeared on-air. The greatest disparity was at the Fox stations, but the “liberal”-leaning network of MSNBC didn’t do much better. When the debate primarily affects women’s lives — in this case, their very bodies — more female voices need to be heard. Shame on these networks for allowing guys, whatever their opinion, a greater voice in the debate.  [Think Progress]

What Your Body May Be Trying To Tell You

Our bodies tell us a lot of things. A grumbling tummy when we’re hungry, a yawn when we need sleep, those all too familiar menstrual cramp when it’s that time of the month. But a helpful list from SELF magazine mentions some signs you may not be so familiar with that could mean trouble. Read on to find out what the shape of your pubic hair could tell you about your ovaries, and what the texture of your eyelids could say about your cholesterol. [MSNBC] Keep reading »

What’s So Great About Rachel Maddow?

MSNBC has always been my news network of choice (sorry CNN, Fox News, and C-SPAN!) — I loved Tim Russert and was always an avid “Meet The Press” watcher, plus I generally just enjoyed the rapport between the network’s anchors, especially during election years. But after Russert’s passing my loyalty was kind of up for grabs again. Rachel Maddow has kept me a MSNBC loyalist — a frequent panelist on shows like “Hardball” and Keith Olbermann’s show, she recently scored her own show on the network at 9pm and has had HUGE ratings since practically the first episode. In fact, the number of viewers for that hour of television on the network has DOUBLED. Why? Keep reading »
