I bet she got paid a lot more to fark David Duchovny.

Newsflash! Hollywood exploits children.

No shiat Sherlock.
 
2013-12-09 07:56:48 PM  
In order to right this wrong, I'll step up and give Fran Drescher a hearty spanking.

Her view of marriage is all kinds of farked up.
 
2013-12-09 09:15:04 PM  
Yeah, but I'll bet she made a fortune off of her clear, citrusy malt beverage.

Oh, STFU. There are hundreds of girls who pile into Hollywood every day who would kill to get paid to not have to work for a living on a sitcom and then be a soft core porn star. Get over yourself.

doglover: Da fuq is The Nanny?


Reality show based on Mary Poppins.

I think "half a human" was almost a million dollars on the life of the series.

That's not a bad payday for anyone.
 
2013-12-09 10:42:40 PM  
Fran got paid big bucks because without her the show would not exist and lots of people will have lost their job.

The child actors, who shouldnt be abused to anything of course, can be replaced and the show goes on. As can be seen with family matters.

Good for her for doing what she loves though.

It's the show's fault your agent couldn't negotiate a better deal?

Sgt Otter: It's the show's fault your agent couldn't negotiate a better deal?


To be fair, the show was titled "The Nanny", and not "The Bratty Little Kid Who Has a Nanny".
 
2013-12-10 12:05:20 AM  
Yeah... I'm sure that being on a hit show that ran for seven seasons really was a burden for you toots. Of course without it most of what followed in your life probably wouldn't have happened and you'd most likely be some no name housewife with 2 kids, some stretch marks and a part time job to pay off your school loans for that drama degree that you never used if you didn't have that lucky, one in a million springboard shot into your "Career".*

Cry me a river. The show wasn't about you, it was about the whacky Nanny (Lucille Ball) and her foreign born boss\husband in the entertainment biz (Desi Arnez) and her whacky mom and best friend who come over all of the time (Fred and Ethel). You actually were a prop (Little Ricky) by comparison, get over it already.

*or porn
 
2013-12-10 12:06:26 AM  
Bring her to me, unbathed if possible.
 
2013-12-10 12:06:34 AM  
On a side note, the movie she's promoting doesn't look half bad.  I'm curious at seeing JP's chops in something that isn't 'Grandma's Boy'.
 
2013-12-10 12:07:51 AM  
If I'm going to spend 6 years of my life on a TV show, I'm not going to accept anything less than a whole human as payment.
 
2013-12-10 12:28:15 AM  
Why the fark does the movie have a farking hashtag? Hashtags are a Twitter thing, unless this movie is about Twitter, I really don't see the point of a farking hashtag. Even then, it's still stupid.
 
2013-12-10 12:29:36 AM  
Well, the young actress was also subjected to Fran Drescher's laugh.

"I did not realize at the time that anytime you look up Madeline Zima on the Internet that for the rest of my life there is going to be an image of me with my boobs out punching somebody in the face."

Now, that is the kind of information that makes an article like this worthwhile.

She's pimping a movie which has a hashtag in the title. Sounds like a winner.
 
2013-12-10 12:41:08 AM  
Well, duh. You're following in the footsteps of the Olsen twins, who made millions by being cued to say "YOU'RE IN BIG TROUBLE, MISTER!"

Are you really this stupid? Movies are advertised on social networks using hashtags. Not just movies, any event ever is now advertised through hashtags because it lets people find relevant information to that product.

So the hashtag is not for the movie title but for the social media campaign benefit...

Actually I've found that whenever Hollywood tries to cleverly reference pop culture, they come off looking like idiots. For reference: Every movie including anything involving skateboarding, punks, hackers and chat rooms. And who can forget the wonderfully hip and with it Breakin', and it's unequaled sequel, Breakin' 2 Electric Boogaloo? Using a hashtag in a movie title for a movie that's not primarily about Twitter is just stupid. Not as stupid as a movie about Twitter, but still, pretty farking stupid.
 
2013-12-10 12:55:04 AM  
Add me to the "cry me  river since without that show no one would know or care who the fark you are" pile.

Funny thing is she seems to know "Nanny" bashing isn't popular but HAS to keep doing it. Real smart alienating fans
 
2013-12-10 12:55:49 AM  
Time to call my eye doctor again. I was reading the article, and I could have sworn it said The Nanny was an "iconic" TV show. Must be time for bi-focals. Either that, or I'm somehow in the universe where Spock has a beard.
 
2013-12-10 12:58:14 AM  
I worked with a woman who was a child star in the 70's...she certainly didn't have any nice things to say about it, or more specifically, Doris Roberts.

You're not wrong about that. You just seemed to be particularly emotional about it.

You might find it helpful to know what you're talking about before talking about it.

It never ceases to amaze me how sandy-vag people get about throwaway moments from actors' interviews.

An actress said 11 words I don't like about an unimportant subject that was a reflection of a time in her life that she didn't enjoy. I MUST NOW RAGE ABOUT IT ON THE INTERWEBS AND THROW AROUND INSULTS ABOUT HER CAREER.

So? Have you, y'know, actually  seen the movie? How do you know it's not related to Twitter in any way? Also, #randomword has been used for other things like y'know, IRC channels (which are what inspired Twitter hashtags anyway).

So in short, the point remains: You like to complain about things you don't understand.

Claudia Lamb.  Very nice woman who hated her mother, who she said stole and spent almost all of her money (this was before any laws were in place to protect child actors' earnings).  She said that Doris Roberts was a horribly nasty woman to everyone but especially all the children on the lot...I can't watch any show she is on without thinking about it.

I believe it. She just plays the nasty characters a bit too well.

Yup, and that's all she plays.  I doubt Claudia likes still having to see her face after all these years.

There was only one reason to ever watch that show, and that was to ogle Fran Drescher in tight short skirts.

You could just admit you were wrong...

Are you a "social media" director?  Is that why your panties are in a bunch?
