Topic - Krysten Ritter
Talking to Krysten Ritter, you quickly realize she's happy, bubbly and fun. So how did such a nice girl get cast as anything but on ABC's "Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23"?
B doesn't just stand for broadcasting at ABC.
"Their intention was never to really reclaim the word," she said. "Television shows ultimately want to be apolitical. They don't want to engage with the kinds of rhetoric that in real life translates into incredibly ugly reminders that these judgments are still really powerful and really commonplace."
Because the insult is abbreviated, it "kind of defangs what's supposed to be edgy" about the shows, she said, and the B-titles end up looking like a "blatant grab at relevance."
