Wendy Davis Filibusters Anti-Abortion Bill for 10 Hours Straight, Defeats It, Becomes Our Hero

The Texan senate made headline news yesterday when Senator Wendy Davis, a Fort Worth Democrat, filibustered an anti-abortion bill for ten hours without pause, sitting, or leaning on her desk.

The bill, which would serve to ban abortions 20 weeks after pregnancy and be some of the harshest abortion restrictions in the country, had been a priority of Governor Rick Perry‘s. With Davis’ incredible filibustering and the support of pro-choice protesters, the vote was pushed into the late hours of the night, which became the early hours of the morning, and eventually blurred the line between whether or not voting took place before or after midnight– a distinction which would define the success or failure of the legislation.

Melissa McCarthy Responds to Critic Who Personally Insulted Her While Reviewing Identity Thief

Comedian Melissa McCarthy recently responded to the vitriolic comments made by film critic Rex Reed towards her in a New York Observer review of Identity Thief back in February.  Where Reed was unnecesarily cruel, and stepped far beyond his role as a movie critic in his descriptions and condemnations of McCarthy, McCarthy’s response is classy and level headed.

The Divergent Movie Might Getting All Classy and British With Kate Winslet

For the unaware, Veronica Roth‘s Divergent trilogy is an über-popular teen series about a dystopian world in which society is separated into factions based on dominant characteristics (the main character, Tris, belongs to the Dauntless faction, whose members are characterized by bravery). As with all über-popular teen series (serieses? serieseses?) these days, there’s a movie adaptation in the works. We already know who’s playing Tris (that would be Shailene Woodley), but Variety has news about a possible new addition to the cast: Kate Winslet.

The Best Part Of Downton Abbey: Dowager Countess’ Brutal Honesty [VIDEO]

Dame Maggie Smith is superb in any role but we take particular joy in watching her as Violet Crawley, the Dowager Countess of Grantham in Downton Abbey. She delivers her lines with such class and whit you can’t be bothered with the fact that she’s usually talking smack about someone. Regardless, here are a few of her best one-liners (there are so many more) from Seasons 1 and 2.

“That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!”

Thinking she was being robbed, Lawrence grabbed her weapon, which she’d been training with earlier, and went inside to defend her property.

‘And I look, and my patio doors were open, and there were guys working right there, and I was like, ‘Heyyy, how you doin’?”

Her friends joked after the embarrassing moment that they’d like to see her use the weapon for real someday.

‘They were like, ‘We’ve got to stage someone to break into your house and you can kill them!’ That would be the funniest news ever. Katniss Everdeen actually kills someone with a bow and arrow!’”Jennifer Lawrence, to Vanity Fair, as previewed by the Hollywood Reporter.

There’s something in me that feels bad for loving everything about Jennifer Lawrence, knowing that she was reluctant to take the role of Katniss because she knew it would catapult her into the level of stardom where people well, know everything about you. But I can’t help it. And were I to ever meet her, I would probably react just like she says later in the article about not having the courage to talk to Meryl Streep:

Vertigo Comics Executive Karen Berger Is Leaving DC Entertainment

Vertigo Comics has been the more serious, adult oriented arm of DC Comics since 1993 and at the very start was Karen Berger.
