Some Dude Harassed America Ferrera But She’s Okay With it


This is a weird one. America Ferrera went to Cannes and found herself the victim of some creep’s harassment when he basically crawled up and under her gown:


This was her reaction:


Well, now she’s got a different reaction, and she seems to be okay with it. Honestly, she’s acting like it’s not a big deal and she’s taking it all in stride, and maybe it isn’t such a big deal but if that were me, I’d feel violated and pretty pissed off. But here’s what she told Vulture about it, via E!:

I don’t even know what happened! I feel something behind me, and there’s this guy under my dress, and then two guys drag him away!

[Laughing] Of all of the things I prepared myself for, that was not one of them.

If you’d asked me what my first experience at Cannes was going to be, I would not have imagined there would be dragons. I would not have imagined there would be, um, ankle biters on the carpet.

It felt like a crazy weird dream. It was like, I was at Cannes in my dream. I was on the red carpet and Cate Blanchett was next to me, and then some guy jumped under my dress!

The guy was Ukrainian journalist Vitalii Sediuk.

As for her “dragons” comment, Ms. Ferrera was there to promote the film How To Train Your Dragon 2.

So weird. The whole thing is so weird and so not okay. But that’s just MY reaction.

America Ferrera Got Married, Looked Stunning

I’ve always thought that America Ferrera is outlandishly beautiful. I think she’s consistently gorgeous, and also that she’s way adorable. And that’s why I wanted to share this little wedding photo with you guys, because I thought you might want to see how majestic America looked on her wedding day.

Discussion on America’s loveliness and/or bridal fashion in general should commence in the comments!

While shooting scenes for the upcoming season of ABC’s (OMG! ABC! We know them!) Ugly Betty, America Ferrera slipped in to a hot dog suit in New York’s Chelsea neighborhood earlier today. What’s odd is that she left what appears to be her I Dream Of Jeanie costume on underneath.

Ugly Betty Put on Hold!



What is my mother going to do?!

I just pray that Big Bang Theory will continue to put on new episodes, because Ugly Betty is being temporarily shelved by ABC, and I’m really not entirely sure how my mom is going to get through her life without her favorite show. My mom losing Ugly Betty is kind of like taking my Ambien away from me. I just don’t know how I’d function.

(Side note: I got a text from a girlfriend today: “Ambien update: My house phone and my glasses are missing.” I was like, “I know! I lost my glasses to an Ambien attack, too. I never found them!” She was like, “What do I do?” and I was like, “Blame the dog.” I told her that the next dog I get, I’m just going to name Ambien, so that there’s less lying involved in my day. Like, “Beet, why is there a sandwich and a Diet Coke wrapped in a sweater vest under the couch?” “Um … Ambien did it.”)

What was my point?

Oh, right, they’re putting America Ferrera’s show on hold so they can show more of that Christina Applegate crap. Here’s the low-down:

In a surprising move, ABC just announced that its former comedic golden child, Ugly Betty, will be shelved on March 26 in order to bring back Christina Applegate’s Samantha Who? and launch a new comedy called In the Motherhood, starring Megan Mullally and Cheryl Hines, in the Thursday 8 p.m. slot.

ABC President Steve McPherson’s nostalgic favorite (and old stomping ground) Scrubs and another new comedy, Better Off Ted (Portia de Rossi, Jay Harrington), will take the hour-long block starting Wednesdays at 8 p.m. (The former home of the dearly departing Pushing Daisies.)

So why is one of ABC’s highest-profile shows getting a time-out? …

According to ABC insiders, the Alphabet net is looking at more of a cable model when it comes to its programming and scheduling. “McPherson is interested in reducing the number of reruns,” one well-placed insider tells me, adding that Betty—after its dip in the ratings this season—seemed the best place to slot in Samantha and Motherhood.

Betty had an audience of about 8 million at the start of the current third season, but then consistently lost about a million viewers each week, sinking as low as 3.6 million. This month, it jumped back up to 7.5 million, but that’s still shy of last year’s audience of 9 million viewers.

What do you guys think?

Is this a smart move on ABC’s part?
