One positive outcome maybe - Lainey reporting that Gal Gadot refusing to make Wonder Woman 2 if Brett Ratnor is still attached to the film....

 

Change like that - hit him in the wallet - is what we need. Oprah standing up and saying she refuses to work with assholes - and she has the power to actually follow through. We need more women (yep, I'm saying it) to break up the goddamn circles of power to have any ongoing change. These industries (ALL) need to be more inclusive.

 

Because Hollywood (and the music industries and modeling and so on) are ALL opportunistic - there are powerful & rich men who give access to young, vulnerable, often naive women and men and often require exchanges of....whatever.....to grant that access.

 

And for all the people who aren't coming forward now to claim harassment or molestation or rape but still participated in system - I feel bad for them too.

Ratner out at Wonder Woman 2: https://pagesix.com/...-out-of-sequel/

 

(FYI, I watched Wonder Woman on a flight to Seattle last week and was SOBBING with exhultation in some of the scenes. OK, maybe I had a few too many glasses of wine, but still - I had NO IDEA that movie would affect me so strongly. I kept telling my husband I wanted Wonder Woman cuffs now....)

I still haven't seen it yet.  Everyone says I should watch it ASAP.

It's very dark and was hard to see on the plane, so I told husband we need to watch on the big screen at home...He hasn't seen it yet.

My kids really liked it. I liked it until the men arrived. I guess I just felt as if there was so much CGI that I was practically watching an animated fim. I had heard such glowing reviews of it, and frankly I was disappointed. More badass women would have been better.

My daughters and I came out of the theater looking to kick some tail - we were so energized with Girl Power!

I thought the beginning was extremely slow - the backstory was way too long.
The most accident prone person on the planet..... :(

My husband and I were both disappointed by Wonder Woman. I expected to be incredibly moved because so many people loved it and said it made them cry and I felt nothing. I found it all very predictable. I'm glad Brett Ratner is out though.

Former Stylist for Ryan Seacrest claims 10 years ago he was inappropriate with her. I do NOT believe this one. I only see $$ signs with this one as SHE wanted a large settlement to keep quiet, Ryan refused and released a statement vehemently denying the claim.

https://www.msn.com/...cid=mailsignout When I was spending lots of time in NYC (more than a decade ago), rumour was that Charlie Rose would try to screw anything that moved. He’s not “Hollywood, “but I think he qualifies for this thread.

Savannah Guthrie just went live on the today show with a breaking news that Matt Lauer was fired effective immediately. She is basically crying on the air and they just found out about an hour or so before the show started. Hoda is on with her.

Based on the gossip we have had here, I told my husband I thought he would go down soon.

Happened to catch that by accident this morning - husband was stopping the recording he was watching and I was finishing packing our lunches. This might be the one that breaks me. I knew the rumors of cheating and what an asshole he was (esp in the way Ann Curry was treated) but honestly didn't think sexual harassment was his MO. Sad that I was wrong.

 

So this is two morning shows who've just lost the male anchor. CBS didn't have anyone in the pipeline to replace Rose, really. (after Rose got Josh Elliot fired....) NBC does have more junior people. Wonder who it will be. I'd love Willie Geist but he might be happy with his Sunday morning and other (MSNBC) show appearances?

They do need the diversity. I like him but so far my impression is "sort of bland". But then, for morning tv, that's usually a selling point.....

 

Please NOT Carson Daly. He bugs me.

Lauer allegedly assaulted staffer during Olympics.

I used to like him but after what went down with Ann Curry I washed my hands of him. There's been plenty of whispering about sexual "attentions" and he's gotten away with that for much too long. He's a dick and is getting exactly what he himself has earned.
