TV’s White Women Antiheroes Are Promising -- And Problematic
Huffington Post - 3 months
This piece by Tallyn Owens originally appeared on The Establishment, a new multimedia site funded and run by women. One of the single most significant failures of white feminism, both historically and today, is the inability of white woman to acknowledge that they are complicit in the marginalization of other people. They use their oppression by the patriarchy to justify prioritizing issues that are most pertinent to them in feminist organizing and discourse. Centuries of idolizing and prizing white womanhood as a mode of upholding white supremacy created varying levels of both narcissism and fragility among white women, which contributes to their inability to think of themselves as capable of harm. In October, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg called Colin Kaepernick’s national anthem protests “dumb” and “arrogant,” showing that even (and perhaps especially) the most intellectual, revered white feminists are prone to acting far less worthy of the high praise they recei ...

Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby star on the hit Lifetime series "UnREAL" as two cutthroat producers who will manipulate anyone (including each other) for power and money.

Friends, Amy Schumer and Leonardo DiCaprio -- Favorites for the Critics' Choice Awards
Huffington Post - about 1 year
The Critics' Choice Awards are being held this weekend and it combines the best of television and film voted on by the Broadcast Film Critics Association and Broadcast Television Journalists Association. T.J. Miller, better known to many as Erlich Bachman from HBO's Silicon Valley, will be hosting the annual show. Amy Schumer will be honored with the Critics' Choice MVP Award, which I guess is a first for most actors and actresses since they probably never received MVP awards playing sports in school. The Most Bingeworthy category holds strong contenders with Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Orange is the New Black and Friends. The strongest contender in that category, Friends, has been off the air for more than a decade but is in the category because all of its episodes are now streaming on Netflix. Cast your votes on Sage for your favorites and tune in Sunday to the Critics Choice Awards to see if you picked right. Naked and Afraid will win Best Unconstructed Reality Show. ...

'UnREAL' Set To Return To Lifetime For Season 2 This Summer
Huffington Post - about 1 year
"UnREAL," one of our favorite shows to debut in 2015, is set to return to Lifetime for its second season this summer. According to a press release from the network, production is set to begin in March.  Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer will reprise their respective roles as reality TV producers Rachel Goldberg and Quinn King. When we left the two at the end of Season 1, they'd succeeded in sabotaging "Everlasting," the "Bachelor-"like reality series the show revolves around. Rachel and Quinn came away from the season with no one but each other.  "I love you. You know that, right?" Rachel told Quinn. "I love you, too ... weirdo," Quinn responded.  Come Season 2, we're sure to see just as much (or maybe more) controversy unravel on the "Everlasting" set.   For starters, the fictitious reality show casts its first-ever black bachelor, Darius Hill. We'll also get a slew of new suitors, including Yael, an "upscale hipster," Tiffany, "a daddy’s girl and football player’ ...

10 Gifts That Television Gave Us in 2015
Huffington Post - about 1 year
As the annual holiday march of the reruns takes over television for the next two weeks, we should remind ourselves that TV has never saved its gifts for the end of the year. It spreads them out, which is exactly the right way to do it. So in that spirit, let's pause a moment to recall some of the shows, and one individual, whose aim in 2015 was true. The shows aren't necessarily the year's best, though some are. But they all offered a level of delight, fun, truth, insight or sheer entertainment that reminded us why, no matter how much we grumble about it, most of us watch television. In no order except alphabetical: 1. American Crime. ABC's anthology series started with a disturbing, uncomfortable drama about crime and race. It featured terrific performances by Felicity Huffman and Timothy Hutton, and to the great credit of ABC, the series was renewed despite modest ratings. 2. Blindspot. Jaimie Alexander climbed out of the duffel bag in Times Square, put some clo ...

<i>Girls</i> Actress Shiri Appleby Talks Balancing Motherhood, Directing and <i>Roswell</i>
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Shiri Appleby has been very busy lately. On top of appearing in HBO's Girls as Adam's Girlfriend, Natalia, Appleby is also in the midst of filming a pilot for Lifetime (Unreal), and directing a one act play in Los Angeles. Appleby says about directing: I've been acting since I was a child so to move the pieces around and watch a piece evolve from the outside has given me a ton of perspective and insight into the process, as well as clarity about the role of the actor in any given situation. When she's not working, she is balancing it all with being a parent to her daughter, Natalie. "When I am not working, I spend all my time with my daughter and when I am working I try to let myself have the space to be an individual." Appleby says, explaining how she keeps a healthy balance between work life and motherhood. ...I tell myself that if I'm not with her, I might as well make the most of the time and do my very best. Being a woman who is trying to parent, be in a relationshi ...

'Law and Order: SVU' Season 15, Episode 8 Recap: SVU Takes On The Coast Guard
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 15, Episode 8 of NBC's Law and Order: SVU, titled "Military Justice." While every episode of Law and Order: SVU is pretty emotionally draining, this week cuts out all the bells and whistles -- no faux American Idol judges or fun cameos -- leaving only the raw story that unfortunately reaches beyond the realm of television. As much fun as it is when the detectives lighten the mood a little, not even Finn cracks a joke this time around. The episode deals with the sexual assault of a female officer in the military and, more so, how the military chooses to deal with the rapists. Just an FYI. No Ashanti this week, folks. The victim: We start off watching a security camera video of a Amelia Albers (Shiri Appleby) getting pulled over for DUI after driving the wrong way down a one-way street. With blood dripping down her forehead, she identifies herself as a member of the Coast Guard after belligerently shouting at the arresting officer. Th ...

Kim Kardashian Is "Super Motivated" to Get Her Body Back Post-Baby, Trainer Tracy Anderson Says
US Magazine - over 3 years
Kim Kardashian doesn't do anything halfway. At the moment, all of her attention is focused on getting to know her newborn daughter, North, whom she and boyfriend Kanye West welcomed into the world on June 15. Losing the baby weight is far from a priority, but when the time is right, she has a plan to get her body back -- and more than enough drive and determination to see it through, celeb trainer Tracy Anderson tells Us Weekly exclusively. Anderson -- who has a successful post-pregnancy workout DVD, as well as a series of DVDs to help women stay active during their pregnancies -- is personally devising an exercise program to help the 32-year-old reality star bounce back after baby. And though neither she nor Kardashian wants to rush the process, they're both excited to get to work. PHOTOS: A look back at Kim's pregnancy "It's a tough time, and a lot of women feel like it's a huge mountain to climb to get back, but Kim, surprisingly, has had the totally opposite reaction to ot ...

It's fun, I feel great!' She just loves the whole process... She's excited to get started, but she's really calm about it all." Anderson also works with Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Lopez, Bethenny Frankel, and Shiri Appleby.
