Raven-Symoné Wants You To Be Ready For Some TRUTH on The View

110105A2_RAVEN_B-GR_04

That’s SO Raven.

In an underwhelming announcement Wednesday morning, Whoopi Goldberg finally confirmed Raven-Symoné will be the next co-host of The View. News to the world AND to Raven, apparently:

“I learned two seconds before that I didn’t get to come out first like I normally did so right then, I was a little flustered and then I came out and they had my song on and then I broke it down like it was hot, but then I had this really short skirt on,” she joked to E! News after the live episode. “So I was hoping that my grandma and my mom wouldn’t have to call and say ‘close your legs girl.’

Oh Raven, short skirts are not for national television, girl! She continued:

“I definitely have a different lifestyle than a lot of people in this world—good and bad—and my views are different than one might think my views might be because I’ve never really spoken my truth until recently,” she confessed. “Hopefully I can shed some light on what I like to call the truth. Some people might not agree with me and some people will but we know how to talk to each other in a respectful way so that everybody gets their point across and there’s no cutthroat conversation.”

(Via E!)

I guess…though I hate how Raven’s “thing” is like, “I’m outrageous! Like me or not!” I’ve never been a fan of Raven or The View, so maybe this news isn’t for me and I should RELAX about it.

What do YOU think of this news, View watchers?

Kim Basinger: “If Women Said No More Babies, We’d Run The World.”

'Grudge Match' New York Premiere

Man, I’ll always love badass Kim Basinger.

The actress was interviewed by The Daily Beast to promote her new film, The 11th Hour. You can read the full Daily Beast interview here, but essentially the movie seems like a downer about a working mom who wants to adopt a kid. Kim talks about the film but also about motherhood as a choice, 91/2 weeks and dating Prince, which is kinda cool. Cue awesome power suit!

She admires child-free women: “I’ve always admired professional women—and I’ve had a few around me—who decided not to have kids. They knew they either couldn’t handle it, or just didn’t have that maternal instinct, or it just wasn’t for them.”

Working on 9 ½ Weeks: “9½ Weeks is one of those that I’m so proud of. I know it took some hits initially—whether tomatoes were thrown—or that we stayed in a theater in Paris for a number of years, but I’m very proud of that collaboration with Mickey, and with [director] Adrian Lyne…There’ve been a lot of sexy, nudie films around, but in some strange way, we pioneered our way into that arena, and I remember how welcomed I was—especially in Europe—with that character. And it strengthened my film and personal relationship with women.

Dating Prince back in the day: “He’s a brilliant talent. There’s no doubt about that. You know that, I’m sure. Hey, listen, I don’t really have boundaries, so I enjoyed that time of my life. It was a really special moment in time, and I have great memories. I don’t put a lot of restrictions on myself, let’s just put it that way. If there’s someone I connect with, we’ll go on these rides together. So that was a neat time in my life.

Prince writing “Scandalous Sex Suite” for her: “That song. Oh, I know. Oh dear! Ah, yes. Sex runs the world in a lot of ways! If only women knew how powerful they were, they’d just say “no, no more babies,” and then we’d run the world. So there you go!

[From The Daily Beast via Celebitchy]

I love that she described dating Prince as a “neat time in my life.” Oh Kim, you’re WAY more interesting than most.  Scandalous, even…or at least according to that song.

Gwyneth Paltrow: Y’alls Misogyny Won’t Stand

Gwyneth Paltrow Feels Close To The Common Woman

Gwyneth Paltrow won’t stand for your patriarchal BS.

The Goop founder said a new interview that drawing comparisons between her and other actresses like Jessica Alba, Blake Lively, and Reese Witherspoon (all of whom run lifestyle brands) is “slightly misogynistic,” and that it’s pretty damn unfair. Us Weekly reports:

The Oscar winner was asked whether she checks out Lively’s Preserve or Witherspoon’s brand-new Draper James. “This is a very interesting question, because I wonder if George Clooney would be asked about Puff Daddy’s ancillary liquor line,” Paltrow replied. “I’m fascinated how the media in particular are so confounded by entrepreneurial women doing something outside of their box.”

She elaborated: “Jessica [Alba], especially, who’s a friend of mine—our businesses could not be more different. There’s not a lifestyle piece to her business. The fundamentals of our sites are very different.” (Alba’s thriving The Honest Company, which sells non-toxic baby and household products, recently hit a $1 billion valuation.)

Witherspoon launched her first lifestyle website, Draper James, last month. “Our businesses have similarities, but hers has retail,” Paltrow noted. “People are grasping at straws to tie us together and I get it, because it makes a good story, but I’m slightly offended by this sort of generalization that happens with myself and Jessica and Reese and Blake. Yes, there are similarities. But there aren’t stories in TIME written saying, ‘Wow, look at Arnold Schwarzenegger, who did x, y, and z!'”

Okay, I generally hate GP and think she’s insufferable on LOTS of fronts, but she DOES have a point. We need to stop comparing women and their achievements to other women, because it puts them in a class that seems different and lesser than men. But- I’m interested in hearing what y’all think about her interview!

Emilia Clarke: Why I Turned Down “50 Shades Of Grey”

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 11.03.01 AM

Emilia Clarke is Marie Claire’s cover girl and she’s talking all about turning down what some would consider the role of a LIFETIME.
In her cover interview in the July 2015 issue, Clarke talks about how she was offered role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, but the Game of Thrones star says she feared she would be typecast if she accepted the role because she already goes super nude in GOT. Kind of a “been there done that” thing.

“I really wanted to work with [Fifty Shades director] Sam Taylor-Johnson because she’s fucking amazing. But there is a huge amount of nudity in the film,’ she explains. ‘I’ll never say, “I’m never doing nudity” because I’ve already done it, but I thought I might get stuck in a pigeonhole that I would have struggled to get out of.”

The actress has a new part that sounds even more exciting than Anastasia, too…she’ll be playing Sarah Connor (a role originally played by Linda Hamilton) in summer blockbuster Terminator Genisys. In preparation she did hours of weightlifting every day…which sounds pretty different than both FSOG and GOT!
