Queer women are rejoicing at the twitter hint that The L Word, the hit show that followed the lives of a group of L.A. lesbians, may be returning. Ilene Chaiken, the woman behind the show, tweeted, out of the blue, "So excited, can't wait...!" with the twitter handles of the majority of the cast. Further energizing the already excited fans, Kate Moennig, the actor who played Shane, the dreamboat who sparked many a young queer ladies' sexual awakening, tweeted back her excitement. Sarah Shahi, who played Carmen,...

We’re big fans of Arrested Development here at BUST, especially of Alia Shawkat, who we featured on our cover back in ‘09. So we’re greeting the news that Arrested Development will return to Netflix for another season with hesitant excitement. As you probably know, Arrested Development aired on Fox from 2004-2006, becoming a cult favorite but got canceled after its third season due to low ratings. It came to Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, to mixed reviews - the negative ones were due, in...

Yesterday’s Washington Post report that Trump revealed highly classified information about ISIS intelligence to Russia’s foreign minister and ambassador led to countless responses - but Stephen Colbert’s may be the best. “Well, ladies and gentlemen, I’ve got good news, and I got bad news. The bad news: The Washington Post reports that Donald Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russian foreign minister and ambassador. O.K.? The good news: Trump found the leaker. He’s fast, he’s fast.” He continued, “Here’s the deal-io. When Kislyak and Lavrov were...

Melissa McCarthy hosted Saturday Night Live for the fifth time on Saturday, and of course, she had to bring back her impression of Sean Spicer after his latest hiding in - I’m sorry, AMONG - the bushes fiasco. Videos of McCarthy-as-Spicer zooming around Midtown on her motorized podium flooded the internet on Friday, and the actual sketch was just as good as we hoped. The sketch begins with Aidy Bryant as Sarah Huckabee Sanders leading a press conference, while Spicer hides AMONG the bushes and watches -...

In this week's Full Frontal, Samantha Bee explores the captivating prose of Ivanka Trump's Women Who Work, an "initiative celebrating women who work at all aspects of their lives." Cool.  But Amazon reviews call Women Who Work "the literary and philosophical equivalent of Laffy Taffy." User M.D. Couturier writes, "No kidding, I’ve read pop-up books that contained more insight into the human condition." And in keeping with the misogynistic spirit of the Trump administration, Ivanka's self-help book aims to inspire women not through personal testimony, nor cited...

Here at BUST HQ, we’ve been chatting a lot about actor Elisabeth Moss lately. First, we jubilantly extolled the many feminist virtues of her new Hulu series, The Handmaid’s Tale, on this week’s episode of our Poptarts podcast. But we were subsequently startled and dismayed when we heard about the show’s panel discussion at the Tribeca Film Fest, in which Moss seemed to cavalierly dismiss the show’s feminist thesis despite the fact that at its core, The Handmaid’s Tale is a cautionary fable about what happens...
