I only lasted 18 seconds.  I watched the trailer for Good Girls, which premieres on NBC next February, and liked it almost instantly – but I only lasted 18 seconds before I punched the space bar to pause in some kind of rage-endorsement, and wrote the following in an email to Lainey and our site manager Emily:  “I’m writing this, right? Getting into a full feminist fever pitch about what idiot didn’t THROW this on TV as soon as the predators started falling? Upon reflection, that may seem like a strange reaction to the trailer for a show I’m pretty sure I’m going to like a whole lot. Full Story

Around the LaineyGossip offices (read: email threads) I am the go-to for Mae Whitman stuff. This was mostly a holdover from falling in love with her on Parenthood, combined with the knowledge that she and Lauren Graham had kind of adopted each other (more on this later). Full Story

Yesterday was a fine day to be Lauren Graham (as if all the others aren’t). Because in addition to the news that Gilmore Girls is set to have a series of special episodes on Netflix, it was announced that Graham and her other, more recent, perhaps more realistic TV daughter had acquired the rights to ‘The Royal We’ for Graham to write and Mae Whitman to star in. Full Story

Have you heard about this one? So Mae Whitman played the President’s Daughter in Independence Day. In 1996.   She was 8. Now they’re making Independence Day 2 to come out next year, a full 20 years later. All bets should be off, cast-wise, 20 years later. Who knows who will be available or alive? But in this case, just about everyone is coming back. Full Story

Ha. Look at Mae Whitman. In the best outfit she’s ever worn. For the premiere of The DUFF in NYC last night. The DUFF opens this weekend. Mae plays The DUFF– Designated Ugly Fat Friend. Robbie Amell is her childhood best friend, next door neighbour, nemesis, and, well, I think you know the formula. Full Story

When I started to write this article I wrote that I had last written about The DUFF in the summer. Turns out I’m wrong – it was only October 8th. It seems like much longer ago. Maybe because I’ve been trying to fight my way through the book since then. Full Story

Mae Whitman stars in The Duff, an upcoming movie for which you need to know two pertinent pieces of information:  first, it’s based on a book written by an author, Kody Keplinger, who was 17 at the time of publication; second, and the one you’ll hear most about, is that “Duff” stands for “Designated Ugly Fat Friend”. Full Story

Parenthood panelled at PaleyFest yesterday. Deadline reported on the discussion. Needless to say, for fans of the show, the big question is whether or not the show will be back for Season 5. Is Jason Katims used to it by now? Because it was like this with Friday Night Lights too. Full Story
