Jon Stewart Reacts to Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Friend Louis C.K.: 'You Feel Anger'

Jon Stewart Reacts to Sexual Misconduct Allegations Against Friend Louis C.K.: 'You Feel Anger'
Louis C.K.'s friends in comedy are speaking out after several women accused the 50-year-old comedian of sexual misconduct in an article released by The New York Times last week.

On Tuesday's Today show, Jon Stewart addressed the allegations made by five women who say C.K. either asked if could masturbate in front of them, or masturbated in front of them without their consent. A day after the Times article was released, C.K. released a statement saying that the women's stories about him were true.

"You know, you give your friends a benefit of the doubt," Stewart, 54, told Today show co-anchor Matt Lauer. "I've had friends who've had compulsions and who have done things -- gambling or drinking or drugs -- and we've lost some of them. Some of them have died. You always find yourself back to a moment of, 'Did I miss something? Could I have done more?'"

Lena Headey Reigns Fire on Louis C.K.’s ‘Narcissistic’ Apology: ‘He Didn’t Apologize. Full Stop’
Lena Headey needs no henchman to do her bidding; the “Game of Thrones” actress made her feelings on Louis C.K. very clear over the weekend, calling lies on his apology. The disgraced comedian released a statement taking full responsibility for sexually harassing five women who worked with him in some capacity over the course of fifteen years, as reported in The New York Times. “These stories are true,” he wrote. “At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my dick without asking first, which is also true.”

Louis Ck. The words you wrote are a shitshow of narcissistic cock soup,” the actress tweeted over the weekend. Headey previously shared her own harassment experience at the hands of Harvey Weinstein.

Elizabeth Perkins Calls Out James Woods While Advocating for Harassment Victims
While participating in the Take Back the Workplace March in Los Angeles on November 12, actress Elizabeth Perkins implied that she has been mistreated by fellow actor James Woods. Perkins was photographed toting a white, handwritten sign that read, “James Woods #MeToo.” Representatives for Perkins and Woods have not yet responded to requests for comment.

USA Today reported that a few hundred protestors — a confluence of the Take Back the Workplace March and the #MeToo Survivors March — banded together at the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenues, outside the Dolby Theatre, where The Academy’s Governors Awards took place Saturday evening (Perkins, 56, wore a red t-shirt supporting the former, which was organized by The Feminist Majority Foundation, Civican, and We For She).

“Glow” Gets Renewed for Season 2, New Jenji Kohan Series Picked Up

Jenji Kohan is an executive producer on “Glow”: Erica Parise/Netflix

Like the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling themselves, Jenji Kohan is kicking ass. News has broken that the Kohan-executive produced Netflix series “Glow” will be back for a second season, and that Lifetime has given a straight-to-series order to Kohan’s next project, “American Princess.”

Netflix gave “Glow” the official go-ahead for Season 2 on Thursday, Variety confirms. Created by “Nurse Jackie” producers Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, “Glow” follows Ruth (Alison Brie, “Community”), a struggling actress who gets the opportunity to be a Gorgeous Lady of Wrestling and finds it is the role she was born to play. The fact that Ruth’s former best friend (Betty Gilpin, “Nurse Jackie”) is also part of the show adds to the drama behind the scenes.

Kohan exec produces the series alongside frequent collaborator Tara Herrmann, Flahive, and Mensch. Marc Maron (“Maron”), Sydelle Noel (“Extant”), and Britney Young (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) also star.

Kohan will also be an Ep on “American Princess,” which comes from “Orange Is the New Black” actress Jamie Denbo. According to Deadline, the show will center on Amanda, whose “storybook wedding plans are dramatically derailed when she discovers her fiancé is cheating on her, just hours before they are to be wed. Outraged, Amanda reacts violently to the indiscretions and runs away from her own dream wedding in the countryside, only to find herself stranded in the middle of a Renaissance Faire with no phone and no way home. She soon discovers her outburst has made tabloid headlines and experiences a nervous breakdown, leading her to re-evaluate her life. The unexpected awakening leads Amanda to leave everything she thought she cared about behind, to become the Faire’s newest wench-in-waiting.”

Denbo serves as creator and writer on the hourlong series. She will exec produce alongside Kohan and Herrmann.

“Jenji has always taken interesting and unconventional worlds and given them heart and humor,” Lifetime head of programming Liz Gateley said in a statement. “From the get-go, ‘American Princess’ was a concept we loved as it’s incredibly relatable to want to parachute from one’s life in difficult times. In Jenji, Jamie, and Tara’s hands, we know this will be hilarious and special.”

Kohan is the creator and showrunner of Netflix’s flagship series “Orange Is the New Black,” a dramedy set in a women’s minimum security prison that premiered in summer 2013. Before that she served as showrunner and the main creative voice on Showtime’s “Weeds” from 2005 to 2012. The long-running comedy followed Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker), a woman who decides to sell pot in order to preserve her comfortable, suburban lifestyle after her husband’s death.

Mad About You,” “Sex and the City,” “Tracey Takes On…” and “Gilmore Girls” are credits on Kohan’s stacked resume. Among her many award nominations and wins, Kohan has nabbed an Emmy for “Tracey Takes On…” a WGA Award for “Weeds,” a PGA Award for “Orange,” and a Global Women’s Rights Award.

Glow” Gets Renewed for Season 2, New Jenji Kohan Series Picked Up was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Glow Season 2 Is a Go!

  • BuzzSugar
If you haven't yet had time to watch Netflix's latest original TV series, you should take this weekend to familiarize yourself with Glow, aka the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, especially since Netflix just renewed the series for season two! This fictional account of forming the real-life 1980s all-female wrestling show stars Alison Brie, Marc Maron, Betty Gilpin, and about a dozen more quirky ladies who come together to film the pilot for what would go on to become a cultural phenomenon. There are so many reasons we need the aforementioned season two. First off, there is still so much story to tell. The entire first season is about these ladies coming together with director Sam Sylvia (Maron) to film the Glow pilot, which means the wrestling show is still in its infancy when season one ends. While Glow has not been officially renewed, the buzz around the show is strong,

Marc Maron Recalls Getting Animated With Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist
Way before The Sopranos‘ Dr. Melfi and Web Therapy‘s Fiona Wallace, the go-to TV therapist was Dr. Katz.

And in his half-hour Comedy Central series, Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, the good doctor — voiced by comedian Jonathan Katz — served as a sounding board for several of the biggest names in stand-up. In animated form, funnymen and -women like Ray Romano, Louis C.K., Joan Rivers, Bob Odenkirk and their ilk would visit Katz’s office and do bits as they sought his professional help.

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the series premiere of Glow. Proceed with caution.

By now, there’s a good chance you’ve watched the first episode of Netflix’s female wrestling comedy Glow. So can we talk about that fight at the end?

No, not the stunt choreography. And not the dramatic ramifications of Debbie learning about Ruth’s affair with her husband. (Though both of those are, to use Glow-era vernacular, rad.) Instead, we want to discuss the preternatural calm that baby Randy exhibited while his mom stormed into the boxing gym and prepared to destroy her former friend in the ring.
