    • Jinjeon says:

      Yup. Nepotism at its worst. If she at least was talnted but no, the girl has no acting talent whatsoever. All her performace that I’ve seen were so awful. Her sister Mammie is okay actress but this one is just… ugh.

      • Pan says:

        I’ve never seen her before. Does she eat human food or bird seed? That’s quite a beak.

        I wasn’t going to comment on this because you obviously need a remedial course in grammar, but I have to ask if you have even watched “The Newsroom” – not that you could understand it because it requires some degree of literacy. Grace Gummer does just fine as an actress regardless of your opinion.

      • MoBaby says:

        OMG! I can only remember seeing her on Extant…it’s painful to watch, the pouty face, the beady eyes, the general look of mindlessness, and the melba toast acting. I can hardly get through a scene she’s in. How is this Meryl Streep’s daughter??!!

  2. Hey! Do you know if they make any plugins
    to safeguard against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve
    worked hard on. Any suggestions?

  3. heLLpaso says:

    Yeah, cause every famous actors son/daughter automatically gets starring gigs in all kinds of shows.

    • Will says:

      For those who are famous enough, uh yeah! (i.e. Meryl, Will Smith, etc) ..don’t think if Brangelina’s kids wanted to act they wouldn’t get a plum role.
      Also her sister, Mamie Gummer, even starred in her own series on The CW last season: Emily Owens, MD. As someone who has worked in entertainment, yes there is plenty of nepotism and preferential treatment; they don’t operate like normal industries.

      • Parker says:

        Not to mention Charlie Sheen & Emilio Estevez, Colin Hanks, Emma Roberts, Josh Brolin, Michael Douglas, Nic Cage, etc. etc. etc.

    I like her, she is very talented, hope this show sticks

  5. Superb blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost
    on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform
    like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there
    that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any tips? Cheers!

    I’m not sure whether this post is written by him
    as nobody else know such detailed about my trouble.
    You are incredible! Thanks!
