Courtney Love, everyone’s nightmare wife, is turning 50 today, the same day I hear the news that Ryan Gosling, everyone’s perfect boyfriend*, will have a child with Eva Mendes. How God could fill my head with so much conflicting news in one day… Courtney, still thinking she can reclaim her title of Rock Queen/Queen Bitch, perennially down for the count, downed by drugs, drowned by alcohol, downed by narcissism and madness- forced to watch stupider, more reasonable women take the crown she wore on “Live Through This”.
Every year a rumored triumphant return, every year a let down. Meanwhile Ryan has found a women worthy of love and impregnation, a woman who will not be smoking, shooting up, and giving foul mouthed interviews to Rolling Stone and Vanity Fair while she has a child In Utero. No, an actress of some talent, Eva will be looking more and more like a blow-upSophia Lorenuntil her waist disappears and she has to wear sensible flats while Ryan adorably accompanies her to Lamaze class.
As a former punk fighting to age without displaying too much dignity, I root for Courtney every time she dusts herself off. As a proud grandmother, myself, I am happy there will be one more Love child and one less Son of Anarchy.
Now all the women sing along with us! One more…
And how ’bout an round of applause for our Gorgeous Mary…over there. Behind the David Lynchian red velvet curtain.
Shonda Rhimes‘s Twitter bio says “I make stuff up for a living,” and it’s paying off really well. Rhimes inked a 4-year extension deal with ABC, which means she’ll be driving us crazy for the rest of the decade. With hit shows, ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ which was picked up for it’s 11th season, ‘Scandal,‘ also returning this Fall, and ‘Private Practice‘ under her belt, she has become one of the most recognizable showrunners and is helping ABC to dominate Thursday TV. So, it’s no surprise that her newest show has already landed a full series order.
‘How To Get Away With Murder‘ stars Academy Award nominee Viola Davisas Annalise Keating, a law professor and criminal lawyer, who like every other character Shonda has created, is brilliant at what they do, but has a totally messed up private life. In the first trailer for the show, Annalise is shown teaching some not completely ethical things to her class, and of course she is cheating on her husband in her spare time. I was instantly drawn in, and you can tell Rhimes and Betsy Beers have another Twitter breaking show on their hands.
To help launch ‘HTGAWM,’ both ‘Scandal‘ and ‘Grey’s‘ will be moving up an hour on Thursday nights. The show also stars Matt McGory, Aja Naomi King, Katie Findlay, Alfred Enoch(Dean from the ‘Harry Potter‘ movies, y’all) and Charlie Weber. So, are you in for Shonda’s latest, or are you sitting this one out?
