Twitter Suspends Actress Rose McGowan's Account
Twitter has given actor Rose McGowan a timeout amid an uproar over sexual harassment in Hollywood. This is different, however, from an actual suspension, where users are unable to view the account.
The new series stars newcomer DeWanda Wise as Nola Darling, a progressive and outspoken woman in her late 20s navigating the choppy waters of relationship-building and working toward a career. The film signaled a change of how African Americans are portrayed in movies. "As a sex-positive, polyamorous pansexual", Nola begins, "monogamy never even seemed like a remote possibility". For starters, she's not anyone's property.
Cleo Anthony plays the model, Greer Childs, Lyriq Bent plays the overprotective investment banker, Jamie Overstreet, and Anthony Ramos plays the sneakerhead, Mars Blackmon. While this doesn't seem to indicate that Lee will be fully exploring the promise of pansexuality, there is always the possibility of a season two. Tony-winner Heather Headley plays the role of the therapist that was originated by S. Epatha Merkerson in the original.
