Sometimes we need to start with good news. To that end, I present to you the following: A drag queen’s tribute to Maya Rudolph’s hormone monstress from Big Mouth which will leave you needing to take a bubble bath:
Nick Kroll loved it and shared with Maya Rudolph:
And Miss Toto got herself a free Netflix subscription out of it:
So, it’s official: Channing Dungey is going to Netflix where she will be the VP of original programming.
The GLOW ladies will be getting their own comic book series if comic books are your thing.
Frank Oz is still bitching about The Muppets under the Disney regime. The most baffling thing about this, though, is his claim that he’s “said little” about the situation. LOL, NO? I MEAN, I DON’T DISAGREE WITH WHAT YOU’VE SAID, BUT YOU HAVE SAID QUITE A BIT, ACTUALLY?
WRONG. The best made-for-tv game was True American on New Girl. Get it straight.
SPEAKING OF THINGS WE’VE BEEN DENIED: Nick Offerman on Survivor.

A former model who had an affair with Woody Allen when she was 16 years old and may have been an inspiration for the film Manhattan has come forward to remind us that Woody Allen has a long history of having sex with teenagers. She seems to think this is a nuanced story where she was no victim, but it really is not that complicated. He’s a gross sex monster who took advantage of children who agreed to have sex with him. It’s pretty fucking cut and dry.
There was a bit of controversy over on the set of SMILF in which an actress was uncomfortable filming a nude sex scene, and writers complained of being segregated by race and not receiving proper credit for their work. ABC Studios performed an investigation and cleared creator and star Frankie Shaw. SMILF is set to return on Showtime next month. Meanwhile, Glen Mazzara, former Walking Dead showrunner is convening a panel on sex scene safety at this summer’s ATX Festival.
Cardi B’s husband Offset interrupted her performance Sunday night to beg her to take him back after she dumped him for cheating on her repeatedly. Cardi B sent him off stage alone, because fuck that disrespectful noise. I could go on a long rant about why this “romantic” gesture was actually manipulative and horrifying, but instead I’ll send you over to Pajiba to read their long rant about it because it is great. Also, they include a clip from Alias I had never seen before, but as a woman who would never marry a man who asked my father for my hand in marriage (even though my father would have eaten that shit up with a spoon) resonated with me deep in my angry feminist soul.
