  • BuzzSugar
Image Source: FX As each season of American Horror Story does, Cult introduces us to a handful of brand-new characters. In this case, we're witnessing them all deal with the aftermath of the 2016 presidential election in different ways. Tuesday night's premiere of the anthology series focuses mostly on Ahs veteran Sarah Paulson's character, Ally, whose fear of clowns and objects with small holes only worsens after the election of Donald Trump. But, much like the loud and proud Trump supporters and scared American citizens around her, Ally isn't the only person who's having some trouble adjusting postelection. Her heightened fears also appear to have an effect on her wife, Ivy. Ivy is a chef who co-owns a restaurant with Ally in their small town in Wisconsin, and she's played by Alison Pill, who's mostly known by anyone who came of age in the early 2000s from the time she

“We were reeling emotionally,” showrunner Ben Karlin said. “She was a big part of the show…We didn’t have to do that much rewrting. It was less of a production challenge and more of an emotional challenge to deal with something like that.”

“It just sucks,” executive producer Seth Rogen added.

“She’s like a ball of light,” series co-star Eliza Coupe said. “Any room she walked into she lit it up.”

Future Man” producer Sony Pictures Television previously said Headly’s role would not be recast but that she would remain in the episodes completed so far.

A Century of Female Fandom

Same stereotypes, different name.

If you look at the shining beacon of humanity that is Urban Dictionary, you will find fanboy defined as “a passionate fan of various elements of geek culture (e.g. sci-fi, comics, Star Wars, video games, anime, hobbits, Magic: the Gathering, etc.), but who lets his passion override social graces.”

What about fangirl? “A rabid breed of human female who is obsessed with either a fictional character or an actor.”

While the former isn’t exactly an endorsement, the latter is a whole different category of harsh — and might have well been ripped from a newspaper written a hundred years ago. Because despite what this 2009 Today article or this 2012 Time article would suggest, calling women the “new” face of fandom is inaccurate. They’ve been there all along. The movie fangirl stereotype is almost as old as the movies — certainly older than their fanboy counterpart. As described by Diana Anselmo-Sequeira in her

Where are the cast of Coyote Ugly now? Here's what happened to Piper Perabo, LeAnn Rimes and the coyotes
15 years ago today, the doors of the Coyote Ugly saloon swung open, turning a low-key Jerry Bruckheimer-produced coming of age film into a beloved cult hit.

But what happened to coyotes Piper Perabo, Tyra Banks and the rest of the movie's cast? To mark the movie's birthday we find out what they've all been doing in the 15 years since Coyote Ugly.

Piper Perabo

Since playing aspiring singer Violet Sanford in Coyote Ugly, Piper Perabo's career has veered from the sublime (2005's The Prestige) to the ridiculous (2008's Beverly Hills Chihuahua).

The film roles have kept on coming, but recently she's been best known as the lead in TV series Covert Affairs, which ran for five seasons on the USA Network between 2010 and 2014.

Adam Garcia

Lifetime Attempts To Trump Their Aaliyah Movie with More Awful Biopics

  • VH1.com
By now we all know that Lifetime’s Aaliyah movie was an atrocity. The network has a long history of going for camp — choosing true Hollywood stories that are famous for their salacious details. Sometimes they hit (see: Joan Allen‘s Emmy nomination for 2009′s Georgia O’Keeffe), but most of the time it’s a big mess. And the casting is almost always terrible.

We love pop culture, so we took it upon ourselves to dream up some Lifetime movie subjects of our own — complete with questionable casting choices. Lindsay Lohan‘s charmed fall from grace (full of drug and shoplifting accusations, and even a dip in the lady pond) is the perfect vehicle for fellow Disney redhead Bella Thorne. Obviously Beyoncé will want to play herself in any and all future representations of her life (as well as write, direct, and produce), and who better to step into

Lindsay Lohan: I Wanted to Play Regina George in Mean Girls
Lindsay Lohan as Regina George? The idea seems almost unfathomable, but the star of 2004's smash hit Mean Girls actually wanted that part, rather than the lead role of Cady, the iconic comedy's heroine. Ten years after the movie debuted, Lohan says she argued with director Mark Waters over playing "Queen Bee" Regina. After portraying a geeky teen in previous roles, she was desperate for one that would let her rule the roost, Lohan, 28, told Entertainment Weekly in its annual reunions double issue.

EW's 'Mean Girls' reunion: The cast looks back on the 2004 hit

EW's 'Mean Girls' reunion: The cast looks back on the 2004 hit
One sure sign of a film's legacy: Does it inspire its own holiday? If you happened to be anywhere near the Internet on Oct. 3, you probably noticed an outpouring of nostalgia for 2004's Mean Girls. The reason? A throwaway line uttered by Lindsay Lohan's Cady: "It's October 3rd." That may seem a pretty slim thread to hang an entire day on, but it's indicative of the fervent fan base for this new-classic teen comedy. Written by Tina Fey and directed by Mark Waters (Vampire Academy), Mean Girls stars Lohan as a high school student at a new school who infiltrates the Plastics,

Now, she's back in action as April O'Neil and looking better than ever.

Why 'Mean Girls' Still Resonates 10 Years Later

Ten years ago tomorrow, a modestly-budgeted female-led high-school comedy opened across the U.S. Based on the debut feature script from a “Saturday Night Live” writer, adapted from a non-fiction self-help book, starring a coterie of largely unknown faces, and centering on a Disney contract player who’d had a big hit the year before with “Freaky Friday” but a miss earlier in 2004 with “Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen,” the film is a rare example of bottled lightning, of a whole that adds up to much more than the sum of the seemingly fairly standard parts. Why else would we be sitting down to write about “Mean Girls” on its 10th birthday? Financially, the film, directed by Mark Waters (whose own subsequent career, “Mr. Popper’s Penguins,“ “Ghosts of Girlfriends Past,” has been less stellar), was undoubtedly a hit, but not one that, like “Freaky Friday” before it, crossed the all-important $100m domestic marker.
