Bill O'Reilly Confronts The Menace Of Women Saying Bad Words On TV

Pareene · 02/15/08 10:56AM

Hanoi Jane! On NBC! Saying "cunt"! Is it Bill O'Reilly's birthday? That's how he must've felt when Jane Fonda chose to curse on a network he happily crusades against every goddamn day on his show (because, you see, MSNBC employs people, like Keith Olbermann, who make fun of him). Though he employed his typical tone of stern, paternalistic morality, you could tell there was loving care involved in assembling his montage of people—all of whom happened to be women, most whom happened to be liberal—accidentally cursing on television. "If someone does that on my program? Believe me, they'd get scolded." We're sure they would! And we admire Bill's restraint in restricting his obscenities to harassing telephone calls and legal documents. The clip is below.

Now Gordon Ramsay Says "Cunt" And No One Cares

Ryan Tate · 02/15/08 03:44AM

Actress Jane Fonda isn't supposed to say "cunt" because she's an American, a decorated Viet Cong lieutenant and everything but still an American. Gordon Ramsay, on the other hand, is a louche British prick who happens to cook and has a television show, and we just haven't gotten around to rendering him to CIA surrogates in Syria or whatever. So he can say "cunt" as he does in this clip and we would not be offended, even if he was speaking in his native tongue and not Welsh, and even if he was on clean American television and not the filthy BBC.

In case you're looking here's Jane Fonda, on the Today Show for Valentine's Day, reclaiming the word cunt.

Jane Fonda Will C U Next Tuesday

Molly Friedman · 02/14/08 10:11AM

We knew Jane Fonda was a dirty bird (Stephen Colbert KissGate, anyone?), but this morning on the Today Show, the actress let a little four-letter word slip that would even make notorious early morning F-Bomb dropper Diane Keaton blush. Chatting with Meredith Vieira and Vagina Monologues playwright Eve Ensler, Mer made the mistake of asking Hanoi Jane a question about how she initially got involved with the play. But before anyone could decipher her mouthful of an answer (and before confused producers could figure out which camera she felt like looking into at that particular moment), we heard one of the more distasteful terms for ladyflowers erupt from jumpy Jane's mouth.

Jane Fonda To America: C U Next Tuesday

Richard Lawson · 02/14/08 09:56AM

Actress/Godless Communist Jane Fonda was on the Today show this morning talking with the perpetually bewigged Eve Ensler about Ensler's play The Vagina Monologues, which is performed for charity in theaters across the country every February 14th. And it's all very pleasant and empowering and then Jane Fonda says "cunt." OK, she's referring to the name of a monologue, but still! It's just like when Diane Keaton said "fuck"! And, insult to injury, they spell "playwright" wrong. Oh, and Eve Ensler says "I was having a hard time getting vagina out of my mouth." Happy Valemtimes Day, Live Television.

Jane Fonda To Discover She's The Only One Lindsay Lohan Can Count On

mark · 05/11/07 12:52PM

On today's Martha Stewart Show, unstoppable party juggernaut Lindsay Lohan—who could not even be slowed by a pricey, totally unnecessary outpatient rehab program—finally lets her defenses down (once Martha gets you into her kitchen and has you whipping up profiteroles, you're fucking toast) and reveals the one person who could possibly end her reign of clubbing terror: Georgia Rule co-star Jane Fonda. As reassuring as it is to discover that there's at least one authority figure the troubled actress might actually listen to, we fear that new ET correspondent Dina Lohan might be so deeply hurt that she might use her next Rule assignment to hunt down Fonda for an ugly confrontation, grabbing a fistful of the older actress's hair and screaming, "So, now you're trying to steal my meal ticket, you commie bitch? Don't fuck with a mom from Strong Island with nothing to lose!," a tussle during which a peacemaking Cojo tragically loses an eye to Dina's wildly flailing fingernails.

John Mayer Is So Punk Rock

  • John Mayer is a badass alternative rebel. "On Tuesday, he stayed true to his laid-back stance and popped open two top buttons on his shirt. The message to fashion observers? 'This says, I'll play your game only so far,' he quipped." [WWD]

Lindsay Lohan Paired With Another Credibility-Enhancing Mentor

mark · 04/20/06 01:51PM

Variety reports that Lindsay Lohan, who recently worked alongside Meryl Streep in a Prairie Home Companion, is once again wrapping herself in the career-legitimizing insulation of an Oscar-winning castmate, signing on to star in Garry Marshall's Georgia Rule with Jane Fonda, the story of "a rebellious young woman who has a dysfunctional relationship with her mother and is sent to spend a summer with her grandmother." But will Lohan heed her ostensible mentor's advice? We imagine that any rapport between the two actresses will quickly be eroded the first time that Fonda, no stranger to youthful indiscretion herself, walks in on Lohan as she violently coughs up reminders of the previous night's hijinks, and offering to hold her young charge's hair, is rebuffed with, "Listen, grandma, I don't need your help, OK? I've been doing this since I was, like, 12."
