Tuning in to TV: Prince Charles’ wife visits Danish TV set
Netflix, for its part, has continued its aggressive push into scripted programming, picking up 20th Television’s “Arrested Development” in November years after the comedy ended its run on Fox. It’s also spending big on fare from David Fincher (“House of Cards”), Jenji Kohan (“Orange Is the New Black”) and Eli Roth (“Hemlock Grove”).
While “Terra Nova” averaged 7.5 million total viewers and 2.6 million in the advertiser-coveted adults age 18-to-49 demographic in its 11-episode first season, it failed to catch on the way Fox had hoped.
Khloe Kardashian cuts ties with PETA over flour incident
Her naked body once graced a PETA billboard and now E! reality star Khloe Kardashian is calling the organization bullies.
It all stems from a recent incident with Miss Kardashian’s sister, Kim, who was flour-bombed by an antifur activist last week at an event. PETA claimed no responsibility for the act, but Khloe Kardashian said she has heard differently.
“I just received word that the woman responsible has very close ties to PETA, despite PETA publicly stating otherwise,” Miss Kardashian wrote on her website. “Not only has PETA lied to the public, but they have proved that they support this kind of behavior. I’ve been a vocal supporter of PETA for a long time, but I have also been very vocal about anti-bullying, so this was a huge disappointment for me.”
Ms. Kardashian went on to write that she considered the attack on her sister a form of violence and bullying, which she doesn’t condone.
“We all need to practice what we preach,” she continued. “I will still continue to NOT wear fur, but I will no longer support PETA. Bullying and harassment is NEVER a solution, and I won’t be a part of any organization that thinks otherwise.”
In response, a PETA spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter:
“We appreciate that Khloe will remain on the animals’ side by not wearing fur - that’s what counts. If one of our volunteers is responsible, it doesn’t alter the fact that no animal deserves to be electrocuted, shot or poisoned for a bit of fur clothing. Khloe is just defending her sister, and we know she has a good heart, so we wish her well. We just wish she also had more influence on her sister.
The reality star took part in PETA’s “I’d Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur” campaign in 2008 and her decision to pose nude for the organization was captured on a 2009 episode of the Kardashian family’s E! reality show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”
Kim Kardashian decided not to press charges the night she was flour-bombed, but, like her sister, has since referred to the incident as bullying. Her representative had no comment on reports that she has changed her mind and decided to press charges.
