If there is one thing Orange Is the New Black taught us, it is that a female-dominated cast doesn’t necessarily equate to a series saturated in glitz and glamour or caught-up in clichéd feminine preoccupations like boyfriends, fashion and babies.

New York City is the ultimate backdrop for reality TV. Do we ever stop to think that the show “The Real Housewives of New York City” features only one woman, Luann de Lesseps, who is actually a wife, and none of them are stay at home women who would fit the category of “housewife”? But still since “Desperate Housewives” captured the prime time audience, reality shows have gone wild with coming up with storylines for the “wives” of various locales.

A longtime scene-stealer on TV -- thanks to her many supporting roles as Jackie on Roseanne, Carolyn Bigsby on Desperate Housewives, Dr. Jenna James on Getting On and Sarah on Horace and Pete -- Laurie Metcalf simply owns the Broadway stage. There’s no competing with the longtime actress, who was superb in The Other Place, performed maniacal laps around Bruce Willis in Misery and recently earned her fourth Tony nomination -- this time for playing Nora Helmer in A Doll’s House, Part 2.
The play -- a sequel to Henrik Ibsen’s 1879 breakdown of marriage and gender roles -- sees Metcalf leading a standout cast, including fellow nominees Chris Cooper, Jayne Houdyshell and Condola Rashad, as Nora returns to the house she once left in need of a divorce now that she’s a successful feminist writer. What follows is a humorous 90-minute debate of society and gender roles as Nora lets her thoughts fly out »

But despite her proximity to the median height, Eva seems to regularly find herself surrounded by some of the tallest women in the world, a difference in stature that’s only made more pronounced by the sea of 4 and 5-inch heels regularly worn on the red carpet. And such was the case on Wednesday night at the Cannes Film Festival L’Oréal Paris »
