Lena Dunham isn't afraid to let it all hang out. If you're watching her HBO series Girls, you know nothing's off limits. Talking with GQ UK, Lena responds to her critics by saying, "I think some people aren't attracted by what I do, and for me, that's the most valid position for the criticism to come from. You know people who are like, 'It's just not my thing.' Or perhaps their morals don't jibe with my morals, you know, the same way I feel about Chris Brown - it's not for me, I don't like your attitude and you are not someone I want to take in. Though, admittedly, I've never beaten any of my lovers in a car while heading back from the Grammys, so maybe I'm just not 'with it' or something."
BURN! In other related Girls news: Christopher Abbot, who plays Charlie, has been booted from the show for unknown reasons…

Here's one way to create controversy: produce a television series called The Bible and make Satan look eerily like the President of the United States! History Channel's miniseries is getting rave reviews, but their take on Satan has some in an uproar. Making his first appearance during last night's episode, some say the devil looks a little too close to President Obama.
What do you think? Unintentional? Or were producers trying to send a hidden message? You might recall the HBO show Game of Thrones put what looked like George W. Bush's head on a stake last year…

Don't mess with The Donald. Actually, please mess with The Donald because it makes for fantastic public entertainment! Last month on Jay Leno's Tonight Show, HBO host/political pundit/comedian Bill Maher said Trump must be "the spawn of his mother having sex with an orangutan."
Maher was mocking Donald's $5 million charity offer if President Obama released his college transcripts. Maher said he'd do the same if Trump released paperwork showing he isn't the offspring of an ape.
Appearing on Fox & Friends, Donald says, "Today I sue Bill Maher." The lawsuit demands $5 million from Maher for derogatory comments. Maher tweeted his response, "What?? Really? Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha"
Grown men. Publically fighting with words. Embarrassing. On both sides.

"About two years ago, I was pregnant for the first time," Beyoncé shares. "And I heard the heartbeat, which was the most beautiful music I ever heard in my life. I picked out names. I envisioned what my child would look like… I was feeling very maternal. I flew back to New York to get my check up — and no heartbeat." Beyoncé dealt with the tragedy through song. "I went into the studio and wrote the saddest song I've ever written in my life," she says without specifically naming a track.
Life Is But A Dream premieres February 16th at 9 PM on HBO.

There are no specifics on the storyline so far, but in September Wahlberg said he wants to see "the guys get back to just being guys… Everyone wants to see them get nuts again."

It was a big night for Lena Dunham at the Golden Globes as she won Best Actress in a Comedy and her HBO show Girls won Best Comedy series. But one person isn't impressed: Howard Stern. Last week, the shock jock said on his radio show that Lena looks like "a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill." Stern also said, "I learned that this little fat chick writes the show and directs the show and that makes sense to me because she's such a camera hog that the other characters barely are on."
However, on Monday Stern made a rare apology saying, "I felt bad because I really do love the show Girls, and enjoy it, and I admire the girl who writes it. It makes me feel bad, and I think she is getting the impression that I somehow think she's just a talentless little fat chick."
So, kind of an apology…

While I'm a fan of most of those names, this sounds like a big ol' yawn fest. HBO did this just last year in a one-off special called Talking Funny. Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Louis C.K. and Ricky Gervais all chatted about comedy. We get it, it's your art/craft. Now make us laugh.

Haha! Game of Thrones can't afford some sculpted heads? HBO suits also chimed in saying they're "deeply dismayed to see this and find it unacceptable, disrespectful and in very bad taste." Regardless of ya political tastes, putting any U.S. president's head on a stick seems little shallow. Agrees?
