UPDATED with a Carol Lynley movie nude scene, thanks to Oz:

Carol Lynley naked

If you don’t remember her, here’s a reminder based on some obscure movie trivia.

In 1965 there were two movies released about the life of Jean Harlow, a legendary screen starlet. Because it was 1965, there wasn’t real nudity in either film. Both films were simply called Harlow, and both starred a Carol. Carol Lynley was one, Carroll Baker was the other. The Harlow actresses were not very similar, given their casting as the same woman. Baker looked as sassy as the real Jean Harlow, was buxom, and was already in her mid 30s. While Baker’s casting seemed at least superficially appropriate, Lynley’s always seemed questionable. She had kind of an innocent look, possessed an average figure, and was only 22 when her Harlow scenes were filmed.

At any rate …

Carroll Baker fled to Europe, where she did plenty of nude scenes. She was featured, often in various stages of undress, in what seemed like an endless string of awful 1970s Eurocrap movies like My Father’s Wife where she did her final nude scene at age 45. When her nudity days were over, she returned to Hollywood as a character actress. For example, you may have seen her as Dorothy Stratten’s mom in Star-80.

Baker did her last nude scene at 45, but oddly enough, Lynley did her first (and only) one at age 46, a brief topless scene in Blackout (1998). In most of her post-Harlow career, she was a minor star in the USA, primarily on television.

Either that or a really awesome episode of The Office.

“In 2007, Kemper appeared in Blowjob Girl, a humor video on the sketch comedy site Derrick Comedy. The video quickly went viral, especially after it was featured on CollegeHumor. Looking back, she now regrets doing it.”

“I really don’t like that video, and I wish that I hadn’t done it, even though I know that it’s a joke. I hate that it got sort of big, because I don’t think that it’s that funny and I don’t want that to be the epitome of my work.”

Here is that video:

You can place a bet on who will be ruling Westeros at the end of GoT, so if you have a script, I’m sure some gamblers would like to talk to you about a partnership.

  • The current betting favorite is, surprisingly, Bran Stark, at about even money.
  • A lot of people seem to think it will be Sansa (3-1)
  • Jon Snow is the next choice (5-1).
  • Between the new power couple, Gendry comes in at 8-1, Arya 12-1.
  • Surprisingly, the Khaleesi is a long shot a 14-1.

I’m all in on Bronn at 150-1. I don’t really think he will get the job. I just want him to. If they decided it like a sort of “Westeros Idol,” where the audience votes, I’d be calling the toll-free number for Bronn non-stop.

Joking aside, I think there is a good chance that The North could be recognized as an independent kingdom in recognition of their defense against the White Walkers. This makes a lot of sense considering that the North will now include all the wildlings and all the land north of the wall. If that is the case, then Sansa could end up as queen, but not ruling all Westeros from the Iron Throne. If Sansa dies in the series, Gendry and Arya could end up ruling the North as a couple, unifying the Stark and Baratheon families. Those crazy kids are headed that way. Independence for The North under Arya and Gendry, two honorable young people, would be a very satisfying ending for part of the saga. I still expect a Targaryen (Jon or Khaleesi or another as yet unidentified) to end up on the Throne of Westeros, dragons in tow, but I’m just guessing.

It is also possible that Khaleesi and her armies will return whence they came and she will become some kind of queen or emperor there. There are many companies of non-Westerosi warriors (the Golden Company, The Second Sons, the Dothraki, the Unsullied) involved in the struggle on different sides, and I don’t expect them all to settle in Westeros when the war ends.

Another possibility for complete independence from the central government in King’s Landing: The Iron Islands, which seem to be going their own way, avoiding both wars (the war against the dead, and the battle for the throne). This could make Yara Greyjoy another queen in her own kingdom.

As for other areas like The Vale and Dorne, who knows? The show seems to have dropped all discussion of them for now.

But I think if you bet that nobody will rule all Westeros – in other words, that more than one character will end up as a king or queen in what has previously been ruled from King’s Landing as the unified “seven kingdoms” – you would have a pretty decent bet.

You would also have a very good bet if you wager that the Iron Throne itself will be gone, and therefore nobody will sit on it. Remember that all of King’s Landing sits upon a stash of wildfire, and that it could easily be ignited in one way or another – in warfare, by a traitor, etc. Furthermore, if any Targaryen ends up as a ruler, the seat of power would probably be moved from King’s Landing to Dragonstone, where Daenerys was storm-born.

Oh-oh. I sense I’m really geeking out.

James Holzhauer has now established the best, second-best and third best single games in Jeopardy history: $111k, $106k and $89k.

UPDATE:

As of Wednesday, he now has the top four days and has raised the single-day bar even higher! Per the comments below, “He broke his own record again on tonight’s (April 17th) episode with over $131,000. He is now second only to Ken Jennings in money won during regular games. While Jennings took 74 games to win his $2.5 million; Holzhauer is on track to reach that amount in HALF the time.”

So is he a mathematician? Scientist? Professor? Guess again. Holzhauer is a professional gambler! (He did, however, earn a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.)

“There is a silver lining here, in that the number of people willing to promote brands for free has significantly driven down the price of sponsored content, consequently reducing influencers’ ability to make a living off it. Hopefully this whole dumbass ouroboros will finish eating itself and we can all quietly forget about that weird half-decade when using things was a job.”

The original premise: people might promote Coke or Porsche or some other respectable product for free, to get cred. They hope that other advertisers will see that and think “Well, if Coke advertises on that site, it must be worthwhile.”

I admit that I didn’t know this was happening. Look for my Rolex ads soon.

(I’m just fuckin’ witcha. Rolex is a candy bar, right?)

It is not an especially percipient reflection on the logic behind the new credits, but the last paragraph is genius:

“So if the opening credits are still supposed to be a window into the upcoming story, that should put at ease the many GOT fans who have become worried that their show will end up being just another epic fantasy about war, dragons, and boobs (instead of a nuanced exploration of politics, morality, and boobs).”

“The main event, however, wasn’t perfect. The crowd seemed to be tired after six-plus hours of action and the ending wasn’t well received by fans who didn’t know the ref was counting when Rousey was pinned by Lynch or if she was even pinned at all or if that was really the way it was supposed to go. It all just seemed odd.”

Twitter was not happy with this!

Wrestling insiders say: (1) the controversial finish was unplanned; (2) Rousey broke a hand during the match.

The show ran more than seven hours. Complete results.

UPDATE:

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin among 50 charged in college entrance cheating scandal

More details:

Felicity Huffman’s bond set at $250G; Lori Loughlin’s husband’s bond was set at $1 million. As I type this, Loughlin herself has not yet been taken into custody.

It appears that Huffman’s husband, William Macy of Shameless fame, is not accused of any criminal activity.

Trump denied to a group of Republicans that he ever said “Tim Apple”

That is weird. That’s just a simple slip that anyone could have made. We’ve all done similar things. Why would he deny it?

And of course, his lie was ridiculous. Here’s the tape:

But wait – there’s more. In a tweet this morning, there was another plot twist. Now he admits he did say it, but did so intentionally, “as an easy way to save time & words.”

Yup, that’s the Donald Trump we know – always trying to cut back on his verbiage, always as terse and economical as possible in his speech.

It’s difficult to imagine the show without her.

She was about 22 when she was cast, and she will turn 33 this year. It’s time to move on if she wants her career to include any other meaningful credits. She’s still young and beautiful, has established some acting chops, has a great sense of humor, has shown she is dependable and a good team player, can sing like an angel

She’ll be fine.

The grand jury returned two separate sets of charges. The first set are related to what Smollett told officers about the alleged attack, including that the attackers called him racial and homophobic slurs, struck him with their hands, put a noose around his neck, and poured some sort of chemical substance on him.

The second set of charges are related to the second interview Smollett had with police about the alleged attack later that day.”
