Good line, wrong place & time. I totally agree that nothing should be off limits in humor. However, this sounds like a nightclub joke for the over 21 set, who will take it as it is meant, a little culturally tone deaf, but witty in its day/for his age.
It doesn’t really work in a “family friendly” atmosphere. Letterman reaches so many people, it’s just cooler to err on the side of spreading good feelings.

Yes, this was written by a publicist and, yes, of course, she knows what to say to be “relatable,” but, seriously, when you hear stuff from sets around Hollywood, Sandra is a cool person, not a diva. Long ago, when they were filming “Speed,” she wouldn’t keep filming until all the background actors on the runway got earplugs. Not everybody is that cool. I say kudos for acknowledging Sandra, she’s a good example of a decent human being, and of course superficially lovely, too.

Facebook ceased being fun when my mother joined, then all of her side of the family piled on. Now it’s just baby pictures. A few years ago, it was just my friends, now it’s a never-ending family reunion with all the stress that entails. I don’t check it anymore.

I have never heard her with her guard down like this. Fa-bu-lous.

She is an immaculate performer! I can’t believe she kept singing! I just wish there was backstage footage of whoever got reamed afterwards.

I have met the Arquettes and I can tell you first hand that there is no problem with good intentions here. But this is one of our lovely media firestorms, where the 24-hour news cycle needs to be fed. And, I can’t even imagine trying to put out a clear, political statement with all the adrenalin of winning the Oscar! All that being said, I agree with you Trent. If she had been able to stick to just, “Women should be paid the same as men for the same work” and just repeated that like a broken record, that would have been more effective and less open for misinterpretation.

She’s not a swimsuit model, she’s a musician. This is exhausting. Why can’t we all just get along?

Eddie Murphy is still one of the funniest people ever. Bill Cosby, in horrifying contrast, is a serial rapist who will probably never see the inside of a jail cell or express regret for his crimes. His campaign to avoid any accountability and keep the PR train running is laughable. To paraphrase Neil DeGrasse Tyson, “the good thing about facts is that they’re true whether or not you believe in them.”

Leslie Jones makes me so happy! She is FIERCE.

^ Same. I’m trying to be thankful for all the comedy and stop feeling upset to lose him, but I’m not there yet. (I Love Lucy voice) “Waaaaaaaaaa!”
