Audrey Gelman, if her name means anything to you at all, is best known for being one of Lena Dunham’s best friends. In fact, she is the real life inspiration for the character of Marnie on “Girls” and has appeared on the show herself as Marnie’s ex’s new girlfriend. Gelman is also an accomplished political consultant and the spokesperson for NYC comptroller Scott Stringer. Oh, and until very recently, she was Terry Richardson’s girlfriend of three years. Last week, the pair broke up. The day before, Dunham was at the center of a small Twitter shitstorm over some anti-R. Kelly sentiments she had posted on the site. Many questioned how Dunham could decry Kelly’s history of sexually abusing young teenage girls when she had posed for photographer Terry Richardson, who is well known for preying on young models and coercing them into undressing for him and other lascivious activities. Dunham was photographed by Richardson for a spread in V Magazine, but others pointed out that the two seemingly had a friendship as well, likely built around his relationship with her bestie, Gelman.
Shortly after Gelman and Richardson’s breakup became public knowledge, Dunham responded to the accusations of hypocrisy and, for the first time to my knowledge, indirectly addressed the controversy surrounding Richardson. She tweeted, “I responded asking that my feminism not be picked apart because of one PR experience. You don’t learn to say no overnight.” And after that, “Any man who takes advantage of any woman sickens me. That’s all and that’s always. No debate.” And today, Gelman spoke up for the first time as well, tweeting:
re: terry photos, @lenadunham tried to see the good i saw in someone & we both have regrets. the online discourse on these issues is vital and pushes us forward everyday. biased perhaps, but i see lena as a courageous champion of women, a critical voice who scrutinizes and challenges female representation in the media, and most of all, a wonderful and loyal friend.

Maybe I’m just a sexist pig, but I fail to get a boner for this allegedly sexist Equinox billboard in Bethesda, Maryland, that has a group of mothers petitioning for its removal. The billboard depicts an attractive young woman, fully clothed in a dress and heels, crawling on a pool table while she shoots a ball with a cue; the tag line, “Dexterity,” is obviously a reference to the fact that she’s bent over in what is both a billiards and doggie style position. The image was photographed by Terry Richardson, known for both his provocative photos and for being a perv with the women he shoots.

When Lady Gaga has a hip replacement, you’d better believe she’s going to roll out of the recovery room in a couture wheelchair. And naturally, Terry Richardson will be waiting there to photograph her in it.
Instead of hobbling around on crutches like most of us would after her recent hip replacement, the singer is recovering in a one-of-a-kind, 24-karat gold apparatus designed by Ken Borochov of luxury brand Mordekai. Her golden wheelchair is complete with a black tufted calf leather seat, a removable leather canopy, padded leg rests and gold-plated brakes. Keep reading »
