    Nooo. I really wanted Christa Miller to play his wife.

  2. Eric says:

    Bummed about Christa no longer appearing on Ground Floor, but it’s cool that we’ll get to meet the inspiration behind everyone’s favorite computer butler on Agent Carter.

  3. Hannah says:

    Is some form of Project Runway on just all year long, every year? Lifetime really milks it, huh.

  4. Joey Padron says:

    Bummed Christa won’t play his wife on the show.

    Haha I love it. “Renowned journalist and feminist” Gloria Steinham. It must be awesome living in delusion!!! Gloria Steinham is about the furthest thing from an ACTUAL feminist as you could get. Yes she meets the bastardized current day definition but take a look at some of the things REAL feminists have said about people like her (think women’s voting rights movement, suffrage, etc). Just like so many other important things, feminism has been co-opted and turned into nothing more than a political party trick. Just wait. Anyone who doesn’t support Hillary in 2016 will be called a woman hater.

    It’s really sad how easy the pre-school level manipulation works on people nowadays. Using collective guilt and tribalism to try to shame people into following your agenda, where the nature of your moral philosophy or the content of your agenda is completely overlooked in the name of political correctness. It’s not like these are new ideas/strategies, history is literally rife with examples.

    She’s just another phony using your gullibility against you in order to raise her profile. She doesn’t get a crap about anything other than raising her profile and accumulating additional wealth.
