David_Halperin: Jury Awards $13 Million to Single Mom Deceived by For-Profit College Tied to Mitt Romney
Huffington Post - over 3 years
On Friday a Missouri jury awarded $13 million in punitive damages to a single mother who had been deceived by for-profit Vatterott College. Vatterott, which has a long record of abusing students and leaving them deep in debt, is owned by TA Associates, a private equity firm financially tied to Mitt Romney's own private equity firm and to the 2012 Romney presidential campaign. Jennifer Kerr of Lee's Summit, Missouri, saw Vatterott's TV ads and visited the campus in 2009 to pursue her dream of becoming a nurse.   A Vatterott recruiter told Kerr that the school didn't have a nursing program, but it did offer a medical assistant's degree. With that credential, the recruiter said, Kerr could make $15 to $17 an hour, and her Vatterrott credits would transfer to a nursing program and put her on the "fast track" to being a nurse. But after signing for more than $27,000 in loans and being in the program for over a year, Kerr discovered that her program wasn't a medical assista ...

'Girls' Actress Wants Your Money
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Following in the grand tradition of Zach Braff and Melissa Joan Hart, Zosia Mamet wants your money. The 25-year-old actress, who is the daughter of director David Mamet and actress Lindsay Crouse, is known for playing the lovable neurotic Shoshanna Shapiro on the successful HBO television show "Girls." In her spare time when she's not shooting the show, however, Mamet wants to make a music video. Performing under the name The Cabin Sisters, Mamet and her sister Willa are looking to raise $32,000 through Kickstarter to finance a music video for the song "Bleak Love." "This music video for 'Bleak Love' is our chance to realize through the visual artistry of some very talented people the universal feeling of un-requited love," the sisters write on their Kickstarter page. "Visually the video will bounce from opulence to sparseness, French Baroque to a simple, timeless and heartbroken. We are hoping to capture something everyone has felt at some point in their lives. ...

Shoshanna On 'Girls,' Zosia Mamet, On Nightmare Auditions And Famous Parents
The Huffington Post - USA - almost 5 years
Of all the actresses on HBO's “Girls” (Sundays at 10:30 p.m. ET) Zosia Mamet is the least like her character. “I don’t watch much television,” Mamet, who plays "Sex and the City"-obsessed Shoshanna, told HuffPost TV. “My old TV agent used to always get mad at me because he’d send me out on auditions and I’d be like, ‘What’s this show?’ and he’d be like, ‘It’s literally the top show on television.’ I wasn’t allowed to watch TV as a kid.” About that childhood: Mamet’s mother is, of course, actress Lindsay Crouse, and her father is writer David Mamet.

This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Published 05:30 a.m., Monday, April 16, 2012 The daughter of playwright David Mamet and actress Lindsay Crouse is stealing scenes on a pair of Sunday-night cable gems, as the hysterically needy Shoshanna on HBO's new comedy Girls (she's the one who's obsessed with Sex and the City) and as lesbian hipster Joyce on AMC's Mad Men (she's the one who was flashing around the crime-scene photos of the Richard Speck murders in last week's episode). Mamet isn't the only celebrity scion adding to Girls' buzz: [...] the show's brilliant writer-director-editor-star, Lena Dunham, is the offspring of artsy photographer Laurie Simmons, who costarred in her daughter's 2010 breakout film Tiny Furniture and guested on Gossip Girl.

MTV News - almost 5 years
All week, we've been introducing you to the girls behind "Girls" — the four fresh faces from HBO's new series, which debuts Sunday. There's writer-director-actress Lena Dunham, who stars as plucky protagonist Hannah; Allison Williams, who plays slightly uptight Marnie; and Jemima Kirke, who portrays wild child Jessa. Today, Zosia Mamet, who you'll come to know as dewy-eyed, "Sex and the City"-loving college student Shoshanna, takes the spotlight. Keep reading to find out more about Zosia! Who she is: If Zosia's last name sounds familiar it's because she's the daughter of playwright and director David Mamet and Oscar-nominated actress Lindsay Crouse. The 24-year-old admitted to Paper Mag recently that school wasn't really her thing, so she eschewed college for acting. What she's done: Zosia has a number of TV credits to her name, including "United States of Tara," "Parenthood" and most recently "Mad Men," where she played Peggy's lesbian friend Joyce.
