Big Bang Theory

It's highly likely that for every report you've read on the acts allegedly carried out by Harvey Weinstein, you've read as many statements from Hollywood heavy-hitters condemning his conduct.

However, while the likes of Emma Thompson provided a reasoned assessment of Hollywood and the wider world's mistreatment of women, many would argue that  actresses like Mayim Bialik did not.

The Big Bang Theory star has been the subject of intense criticism since penning an op-ed for The New York Times entitled Being a Feminist in Harvey Weinstein's World.

Mayim begins her piece with a reflection on her first impression of the entertainment industry as a 'prominent-nosed, awkward, geeky, Jewish 11-year-old' and admits that she found herself consumed by the notion of self-improvement.

From longing for a smaller nose to wishing for more curves, Mayim was quick to identify that the aesthetic played as big, if not bigger, a role as talent in Hollywood, especially when it came to adolescent girls and young women.

Few can argue with such an assessment, but it's Mayim's next set of points which have raised considerable controversy.

In a move which has seen the actress accused of victim-blaming, Mayim outlines her approach to navigating the entertainment industry, and used both her choice of clothes and conduct as examples.

"I still make choices every day as a 41-year-old actress that I think of as self-protecting and wise," she said. "I have decided that my sexual self is best reserved for private situations with those I am most intimate with. I dress modestly. I don’t act flirtatiously with men as a policy."

While actively condemning the misuse of power in Hollywood along with alleged actions of Harvey Weinstein, the actress appears to place responsibility at the feet of women who are trying to navigate an industry known for its misogyny.

"In a perfect world, women should be free to act however they want. But our world isn’t perfect. Nothing — absolutely nothing — excuses men for assaulting or abusing women. But we can’t be naïve about the culture we live in."

Unsurprisingly, the article has come in for massive criticism online, with Twitter uesrs slating the actress for her supposedly feminist take on sexual assault.

Mayim has responded to the backlash on her own Twitter page and insisted that the accusations levelled at her are 'absurd'.

"It's so sad how vicious people are being when I basially live to make things better for women," she wrote.

Mayim's article comes just days after Donna Karan suggested women were 'asking for it' on account of the clothes they choose to wear.

Congratulations are in order for Melissa Rauch – she's expecting a baby!

The Big Bang Theory star revealed to Glamour that she is pregnant.

However, she also addressed the miscarriage she previously suffered.

Writing an open letter in the publication, Melissa said: “I’m expecting my first child. [I’m] extremely overjoyed, but if [I’m] being honest, due to the fact that [I] had a miscarriage the last time [I] was pregnant, [I’m] pretty much terrified at the moment that it will happen again.”

She went on to say that she doesn't feel like telling anyone until the baby is safely out in the world, but doesn't want people to notice her baby bump and start talking.

"[I] feel weird even announcing this at all, and would rather wait until her child heads off to college to tell anyone, but [I] figure [I] should probably share this news before someone sees [me] waddling around with [my] mid-section protruding and announces it first.”

We're delighted for Melissa and hope that everything goes well throughout her pregnancy!

If you're a fan of The Big Bang Theory, then you're not going to be happy with the following news.

Kunal Nayyar, who plays Raj in the show has admitted that series 10 "could be the last."

Speaking on This Morning, Kunal explained that even though the whole cast and crew would love for it to go on, the decision isn't up to them.

"All of us on the show realise how lucky we are on the show and we treasure it. We're not sure if there will be another show like this, we know it is special."

And when Holly and Phillip asked if this is the last time he's going back on to the BBT set, he said: "I don't know to be honest, it could be the end, hopefully it's not. The decisions are not up to us. I hope it isn't."

Fans are already wondering about the future of the show, and are calling out for a movie, but Kunal can't see that happening.

"I mean it's a very difficult format to do for a movie, because you know we shoot in front of a live audience, a live studio audience, with four cameras.

"So unless the movie was a two-and-a-half hour sitcom version of The Big Bang Theory, I don't think we could ever actually do a movie."

Sad news guys, sad news,

Barely three weeks after confirming her divorce from Ryan Sweeting, Kaley Cuoco has taken to Instagram to address some other romance-related rumours.

The actress didn't mince her words with a post yesterday that flat-out denied there was anything going on with her Big Bang Theory co-star Johnny Galecki.

"So sorry to disappoint, but no home wreckers or secret flings going on here," she wrote next to a picture of herself and Johnny. 

"Me and @sanctionedjohnnygalecki are just the best of buds- Leonard and Penny will just have to suffice!!!"

As well as having an on-screen romance for The Big Bang Theory, Kaley and Johnny did date back in 2008 and 2009 – but she swears they are just friends now.

Johnny echoed the sentiment with a similar – and equally blunt – Instagram post.

"No scandals / home wreckers / pregnancies here, y'all. Just profound friendship," he wrote.

Various reports of late suggested that Kaley and Johnny's growing closeness had fuelled her split from Ryan, who she married less than two years ago.

Although she has yet to speak about the split to the media, and official statement from Kaley and Ryan's reps said they had "mutually decided" to end things.

Just days before the break-up, Kaley spoke happily about how well herself, Johnny and Ryan got on, saying there was no awkwardness.

"He [Johnny] is one of my dearest friends and Ryan loves him. Johnny loves [Ryan]," she said. "I got lucky."

Big Bang Theory actress Kaley Cuoco was due to mark her second wedding anniversary in just a few short months, but this evening she confirmed it was all over.

Kaley and her husband Ryan Sweeting revealed they were getting a divorce in a joint statement, saying they had "mutually decided" to end things.

The pair said they would be issuing no further statements and asked for privacy from the media.

Though it seems fans will have to wait a while for a tell-all interview, Kaley did give some indication as to how she was coping this evening, posting a telling picture to Instagram with the hashtag #mood:

Rosé and puppy hangouts… the perfect cure for a broken heart. 

In a standard break-up move, Kaley has already deleted all pictures of herself and Ryan from her Instagram, which she runs under her dog's name, Norman Cook.

She's also unfollowed all Ryan's social media accounts, though as of now he's still mentioned in her Instagram bio:

Kaley and her now-estranged husband married on New Year's Eve 2013 after a whirlwind romance, getting engaged just three months into their relationship.

Despite the speed at which things moved, Kaley seemed content in the early days of the marriage, even joking about how things must look from the outside.

"It sounds so slutty, but it wasn't," she told David Letterman.

"We met on a blind date… We texted a little bit, dinner was great, and then he moved in the next day."

Back in May, Kaley took to Instagram to fend off rumours that things were rocky for her and Ryan.

"[A]ll of you who take it upon yourselves to trash our marriage, daily workings of our relationship and everything in between, go ahead and keep doing it, cause it only makes us stronger," she wrote.

"I'm so proud of his [Ryan's] passion and his inner strength to fight back, but most of all I am proud to be his wife."

Star of the Big Bang Theory Kaley Cuoco Sweeting looks amazing on the cover of Shape magazine.

The 29-year-old looks incredibly toned and tanned in her spread. However, this is one celeb who isn’t afraid to poke fun at herself and reveal what really happens behind the scenes at this oh-so glamorous photoshoots.

She took to Instagram to show off that fabulous body of hers up close and personal.

 

Everyone knows I love a tan line #bts @shape_magazine @tansbyashleyrose #nofilter

She posted a photo showing off her intense tan lines with the caption: “everyone knows I love a tan line #btw #nofilter.”

Kaley has obviously never met an Irish person coming back from their holidays because we honestly thought tan lines were universally irritating.

That wasn’t the only zoomed-in snap the actress shared with fans. She also took the time to show us all a real behind (that pun though) the scenes shot of her in that royal blue two piece.

While it looked it was all fun and games for the actress, she was also serious about the hard work she puts into her fitness regime. She posted a shot of her cover and noted that “Hard work pays off.”

Her killer body is obviously a reflection of her healthy lifestyle which she noted has had to adapt as she’s gotten older.

“I've had to change my food intake. My husband, Ryan, eats so much… We got into this habit we called the bedtime snack. The drawers next to the bed were filled with candy.”

The tennis-player and Kaley married in 2013, but since then have clearly opted to adopt some healthier foodie habits.

“Our refrigerator and pantry have completely changed, because we don’t eat crap anymore. No more soda, chips, cereal; we had boxes of stuff that only a 4-year-old would eat."

Actress Carol Ann Susi, best known for her role as Mrs. Wolowitz on The Big Bang Theory, has died after a short battle with cancer. She was 62.

Howard Wolowitz's tactless mother was a much-loved character on the show, but viewers only ever heard her loud Brooklyn accent shouting from different ends of the house – though they were once treated to a sneak glimpse:

Big Bang Theory producers Chuck Lorre, Steve Molaro and Bill Prady released a touching statement about Carol's death and the work she had done on the show. "Unseen by viewers, the Mrs. Wolowitz character became a bit of a mystery throughout the show's eight seasons," read the message.

"What was not a mystery, however, was Carol Ann's immense talent and comedic timing, which were on display during each unforgettable appearance. In addition to her talent, Carol Ann was a constant source of joy and kindness to all. Our thoughts and deepest condolences are with her family during this time, and we will miss her greatly."

Some of the show's cast members also took to social media to express their sadness at Carol's passing:

As well as The Big Bang Theory, the actress appeared in a huge number of other shows during her 40-year career, including Grey’s Anatomy, Ugly Betty, That ’70s Show, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Seinfeld.

Following in the footsteps of Julia Roberts and Madonna, Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting has posted a picture of her excessive body hair.

It’s not what you think though – she was just sharing a picture of the beauty team prepping her for a scene on her hit TV show.

Kaley is being covered in body hair for a scene on The Big Bang Theory where Penney ends up involved in a low-budget movie, Serial Ape-ist.

It’s so surreal to see the actress covered in hair while wearing a hot pink top and hair rollers.

Can’t wait to see this episode!

Everything to do with Kaley Cuoco’s recent marriage seems to be in the fast lane.

Engaged following a three-month relationship to tennis player Ryan Sweeting and married two months later, perhaps it should come as no surprise that she has now officially changed her name on the Big Bang Theory credits also.

Kaley uploaded this photo to her Instagram account depicting a scene from the show with her married name “Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting” on the credits in front of John Galecki who plays her love interest Leonard. FYI she also went out with John for two years – awkward much?

We all LOVE Kaley here at SHEmazing HQ, so we really hope this doesn’t marriage doesn’t go to the special farm where all Hollywood relationships seem to inevitably end up.

Fans of nerdy comedy The Big Bang Theory will be familiar with loveable blonde, Kaley Cuoco, who plays Penny on the popular show.

If you follow her on Instagram, you would have been among her 440,103 followers to be treated to snaps of her wedding yesterday.

It seems Kaley decided to shun the traditional white wedding dress and instead followed in the steps of Mrs Timberlake by wearing a beautiful pink gown, made by Vera Wang.

It looked like such a fun wedding and seemed to be much more relaxed than your typical Hollywood affair.

We would have loved to be there, but obviously our invitation was lost in the post…
