Joss Whedon Called Out By His Ex-Wife For Having Multiple Affairs & Being A Fake Feminist — "He"s Not Who He Pretends To Be"

Joss Whedon's ex-wife is not holding anything back! Kai Cole, who was with the Avengers screenwriter for 20 years total, is calling out her longtime partner for claiming to be a feminist even though he cheated on her throughout the duration of their 16-year marriage. In an essay published in The Wrap, Cole detailed Whedon's "hypocrisy of [...] Joss Whedon's ex-wife is not holding anything back! Kai Cole, who was with the Avengers screenwriter for 20 years total, is calling out her longtime partner for claiming to be a feminist even though he cheated on her throughout the duration of their 16-year marriage. In an essay published in The Wrap, Cole detailed Whedon's "hypocrisy of being out in the world preaching feminist ideals, while at the same time, taking away my right to make choices for my life and my body based on the truth." Related: JAY-Z Gets SUPER Candid About His Met Gala Brawl At the beginning of their relationship, Cole says she was the one who encouraged Whedon to adapt Buffy the Vampire Slayer into a TV show -- which is when the first affair happened: "There were times in our relationship that I was uncomfortable with the attention Joss paid other women. He always had a lot of female friends, but he told me it was because his mother raised him as a feminist, so he just liked women better. He said he admired and respected females, he didn't lust after them. I believed him and trusted him. On the set of Buffy, Joss decided to have his first secret affair." It wasn't until the end of their marriage that Whedon finally told Cole about his infidelity. She recalled: "Fifteen years later, when he was done with our marriage and finally ready to tell the truth, he wrote me, 'When I was running Buffy, I was surrounded by beautiful, needy, aggressive young women. It felt like I had a disease, like something from a Greek myth. Suddenly I am a powerful producer and the world is laid out at my feet and I can't touch it.' But he did touch it. He said he understood, 'I would have to lie — or conceal some part of the truth — for the rest of my life,' but he did it anyway, hoping that first affair, 'would be ENOUGH, that THEN we could move on and outlast it.'" But instead, Cole says Whedon "hid multiple affairs and a number of inappropriate emotional ones that he had with his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends, while he stayed married to me." Not only did Whedon lie to Cole, he was lying to the world -- she went on: "He never conceded the hypocrisy of being out in the world preaching feminist ideals, while at the same time, taking away my right to make choices for my life and my body based on the truth. He deceived me for 15 years, so he could have everything he wanted. I believed, everyone believed, that he was one of the good guys, committed to fighting for women's rights, committed to our marriage, and to the women he worked with. But I now see how he used his relationship with me as a shield, both during and after our marriage, so no one would question his relationships with other women or scrutinize his writing as anything other than feminist." She concluded: "Until recently, Joss was still letting the illusion of our marriage stay intact. Now that it is finally public, I want to let women know that he is not who he pretends to be. I want the people who worship him to know he is human, and the organizations giving him awards for his feminist work, to think twice in the future about honoring a man who does not practice what he preaches. But no matter what happens, or how people interpret this statement, I no longer have to carry the burden of Joss' long-term deceit and confessions. I am free." Wow! Joss' camp responded to his ex's claims to The Wrap with the statement: "While this account includes inaccuracies and misrepresentations which can be harmful to their family, Joss is not commenting, out of concern for his children and out of respect for his ex-wife." Interesting. Thoughts on this??? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Yup, Riverdale's Cole Sprouse and Lili Reinhart have taken their on screen relationship into the real world as they're totally a couple now. The twosome's IRL romance was exposed after multiple eyewitnesses saw the costars getting cozy AF at San Diego Comic-Con. Apparently, the pair "could not keep their hands off of one another"! Related: BIP's Amanda Stanton Has Found Love Again LOVES it! While it's currently unknown if the duo's relationship is an exclusive one, a source dished to E! News: "[Cole and Lili] were very open with their PDA at parties during the event, and close friends did not seem surprised." We're sure fans of the CW drama are dying right about now. We know we are! Per another tipster, Miz Reinhart "was mostly hanging out with the other Riverdale girls" while at one Comic-Con bash on Friday. Nonetheless, the insider claims the blonde actress "always had her eye on where Cole was." Later in the evening, the rumored couple was seen talking closely by a pool. Well, well! And despite their attempts at keeping a low profile, the eyewitness states it was clear that "something was going on" between the former Disney darling and the up-and-comer. More PDA between the two was spotted as, on Saturday, the TV stars were seen "canoodling, holding hands, and kissing." Ooh la la! The entire cast has since flown back to the show's set in Vancouver -- where hopefully more canoodling is going on. LOLz! The young actors were first romantically linked after Dylan Sprouse's twin photographed Reinhart in a field (below). 🌷🌼🌷🌼👩🏼🌼🌷🌼🌷A post shared by Cole Sprouse (@colesprouse) on Mar 18, 2017 at 11:30am PDT It'll be inneresting to see if Cole and Lili publicly confirm their relationship, especially since Sprouse previously stated that he and the 20-year-old are "strictly in the friend zone."

Rita revealed that she wrote “Anywhere” (which she described as “folky with a sick beat”) in Los Angeles while missing her hometown of London. “I felt really still and stuck,” she shared. “I just felt really slow and I wanted to listen to a song I could drive into the distance with. I wrote this song because I wanted to hit the road.” “I was literally grabbing people from the street and kissing them,” she added about the music video, shot in New York City. “They were looking at me like I was crazy. They were all really good and wanted to be involved.” “The cab driver kissed me and I think we’re now dating,” she joked.

Thus, we couldn't have been more hyped when we learned that Riverdale's Lili Reinhart spilled all about what she thought when she first met her costars, including IRL boyfriend Cole Sprouse. Ooh, go on!!! Related: K.J. Apa's Car Crash Sparks On-Set Investigation So what did Miz Reinhart initially think of her future on (and off) screen love?? During a chat with W magazine, the blonde actress shared: "I thought KJ [Apa] was so hot, so charming. I had seen Cole and Camila [Mendes] at the studio test, and thought Cami was so beautiful. It's funny, I don't really remember having an opinion on Cole, to be honest. Of course, I had grown up watching [The Suite Life] but I wasn't really starstruck. He just seemed like this really attractive, normal guy." You can say that again!! Lili and Cole's real-life romance first sparked gossip this summer when the two were spotted getting cozy while at San Diego Comic Con. Amid everyone's speculation about her private life, the 21-year-old has struggled with maintaining boundaries with fans. On Riverdale's overnight success and the attention that's come with it, Reinhart noted: "The show took off in such a way that fame followed very quickly after, and it wasn't really a smooth transition. It was just kind of like, 'Bam.' It wasn't a bad thing, but all a sudden, I'm doing all these things and a year ago, I was just starting to film season one, and two years ago, I was living in North Carolina with my parents." We can imagine it has been quite a shock. After one unpleasant encounter with an overzealous fan, Lili has since reminded the public: "Fans feel like they know who we are. And they feel entitled to touch us or ask us personal questions, which people have. You would never walk up to a stranger and hug them. You would never walk up to a stranger and ask them who are they dating… But when people come up and ask for pictures, it's like, of course. And sometimes I am in a terrible mood, but I'll still do it, and then I do feel like, ‘What if that fan experience was a let down for them and I wasn't as exciting in person?' But I am not Betty Cooper. I'm always going to try to be as happy and grateful to fans, but I'm also just trying to live my life. I don't have an on switch all of the time. It's something that I am getting used to, or trying to. I don't know how anyone can get used to that." Fair point. Although, to be fair, people may stop asking about your love life if you'd just confirm your relationship!! Be sure to catch Riverdale's season two premiere when it returns to The CW on October 11.

"What Could I Do?" The OA"s Brit Marling Says Harvey Weinstein Tried To Get Her To Shower With Him

But she wasn't just the star -- she also created and wrote the mysterious sci-fi show. So when she decided to go public with her story of being brought under false pretenses to the hotel room of Harvey Weinstein, the result was a thoughtful piece about society as a whole. Related: All The Women Who Have Accused Harvey Weinstein So Far In an essay for The Atlantic, she wrote about her meeting with the Hollywood powerhouse in 2014, after she had a couple indies screen at the Sundance Film Festival. And, as she points out, the "meeting" was all too familiar a story: "I, too, went to the meeting thinking that perhaps my entire life was about to change for the better. I, too, was asked to meet him in a hotel bar. I, too, met a young, female assistant there who said the meeting had been moved upstairs to his suite because he was a very busy man. I, too, felt my guard go up but was calmed by the presence of another woman my age beside me. I, too, felt terror in the pit of my stomach when that young woman left the room and I was suddenly alone with him. I, too, was asked if I wanted a massage, champagne, strawberries. I, too, sat in that chair paralyzed by mounting fear when he suggested we shower together." Thankfully, as Brit says in her essay, she had been in Hollywood long enough to have recognized the paths she did not want to go down, and she was able to get out of there: "I was able to gather myself together—a bundle of firing nerves, hands trembling, voice lost in my throat—and leave the room. I later sat in my hotel room alone and wept. I wept because I had gone up the elevator when I knew better. I wept because I had let him touch my shoulders. I wept because at other times in my life, under other circumstances, I had not been able to leave." Those types of circumstances many women face are ultimately what Brit wants to talk about. Related: Celebrity Chef Steps Down From Company After Sexual Harassment Allegations She writes: "I'm telling this story because in the heat surrounding these brave admissions, it's important to think about the economics of consent. Weinstein was a gatekeeper who could give actresses a career that would sustain their lives and the livelihood of their families. He could also give them fame, which is one of few ways for women to gain some semblance of power and voice inside a patriarchal world. They knew it. He knew it. Weinstein could also ensure that these women would never work again if they humiliated him. That's not just artistic or emotional exile—that's also economic exile." Speaking of streaming sci-fi, if you thought The Handmaid's Tale couldn't happen just look backward a bit: "It's important, too, to keep in mind where this power imbalance comes from. In the U.S., women were only allowed to have credit cards in their own names as of 43 years ago. Men had a two-decade head start (the credit card was invented in 1950). In the 1960s a woman needed to bring a man along to cosign any credit application. It's stunning how recently women were afforded no financial autonomy. This is, of course, connected to the fact that women didn't have bodily autonomy either. A woman's husband could beat her or have sex with her without her consent in this country with no real legal recourse until the 1970s. How horrifying is that? Just think about those facts every time Donald Trump says "Make America Great AGAIN." "For me, this all distills down to the following: The things that happen in hotel rooms and board rooms all over the world (and in every industry) between women seeking employment or trying to keep employment and men holding the power to grant it or take it away exist in a gray zone where words like "consent" cannot fully capture the complexity of the encounter. Because consent is a function of power. You have to have a modicum of power to give it. In many cases women do not have that power because their livelihood is in jeopardy and because they are the gender that is oppressed by a daily, invisible war waged against all that is feminine—women and humans who behave or dress or think or feel or look feminine." Brit views this as a much larger problem than just Harvey, than just Hollywood. She says: "It's not these bad men. Or that dirty industry. It's this inhumane economic system of which we are all a part. As producers and as consumers." So what's the solution? In general, Marling believes part of the solution must come from women closing the pay gap and thus the disparity in economic power: "This means that, in part, stopping sexual harassment and abuse will involve fighting for wage parity. This also means women and men in power need to turn around and hire more women, especially women of color, especially women who have not grown up with economic privilege."
