My mother-in-law retired from being one of the head pilgrims a few years ago(and yes, she’d stay in character when we’d go see her, and BONUS she would sometimes talk IN HER SLEEP in her pilgrim voice) New management came in a few years ago and have been mucking things up.They wanted to bring in a glassblower for…
Blake Shelton is not the Sexiest Man Alive that 2017 needs: he’s the Sexiest Man Alive that 2017 deserves.
Maybe he qualifies as such in 2017 because he hasn’t raped anyone.
It’s kind of mind-blowing how many of the people who defended CK from the beginning are now flocking to the comments to beat up jezebel.
Thank you for the post. Jezebel pursued an open secret story inside of an industry that’s incredibly male dominated and where misogynist views (women aren’t and can’t be funny) still exist. The nature of CK’s comedy added icky complexity to the endeavor. Strong CK defenders (outside the comedy world) are to CK what…
I’m a fan of Jen Kirkman and a diehard Jezzie. I admire CK’s work but have never been completely comfortable with him as a person, as I’d heard this shit before (which is rare, I usually have no idea what’s up with celebs). So...Confliction, party of 1.
This is it in a nutshell: “ But at the end of the day, if this is an epidemic in the industry—which I believe it is—I think that the options are pretty terrible...” That’s why systemic change is so important.
I worked at Fidelity for about a year and a half. somehow I’m not surprised. (my boss was all about making us drink the Kool-Aid when I first came on — she kept talking about what a “great company” it was and “you could have a career here” — and it became apparent over time that maybe it wasn’t such a great company.) …
men can be feminists, but don’t trust a single fucking one who makes a living off feminism.
I am aghast at the story of his losing his virginity. It sounds like he participated in the gang rape of his brother’s girlfriend at age 15. There’s too much to unpack there. I really wish I could hear the woman’s account of that evening because it seems like a horrifying experience. He has to be missing some serious…
Lol. Did anyone else catch the self righteous “she later apologized”. As if she was the problem for having told him off for groping her “right buttock”. And the way he presents it as he rather than she being humiliated in front of the crew. It’s ok for him to grope her in front of these people but not ok for her to…
He also made awful comments about Meryl Streep’s boyfriend, who had recently died of cancer, during Kramer vs. Kramer. All in the name of art, of course. After all, we can all see from her later career that she can’t possibly portray emotions like sadness or anger without having a male costar make her acting choices…
Obviously Catalina is Wonder Woman!
Popcorn! Bummer is, I work alone in my office, so no one even gets to see it :(

You mean sleepy paralysis?
Beautiful but on the road, at night, in the dark, the feeling of isolation creeps up on you. You literally start to feel like all bad things are possible, and worse, they’re gonna happen to you.
Wow! I would have never pegged my story for one of the best, but thank you so much capturing my traumatic experience so perfectly! I seriously can’t believe you did this!
