Orphan Black’s second season kicked off with Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) frantically searching for her missing daughter, Kira (Skyler Wexler), and the June 21 finale starts in a very familiar place as the lil’ girl is, once again, MIA.

Only this time, Sarah knows exactly who’s kidnapped Kira — the painfully lonely and barren pro-clone Rachel (Maslany) — and sacrifices herself for the sake of her daughter.

As seen in BuzzFeed’s exclusive look at the season finale (“By Means Which Have Yet Been Tried”), Sarah makes the tough decision to surrender to Rachel’s bosses at the DYAD Institute and subject herself to their poking, prodding, and invasive testing in the hopes that her “defective” clone DNA will be so valuable that DYAD will force Rachel to give Kira back to Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy) and Felix (Jordan Gavaris).

But as fans have come to learn over the last two twisty seasons, everything on Orphan Black can change in an instant and the final two minutes of every episode tend to be the most explosive.

Watch the first two minutes of Orphan Black’s finale here:

“Mulaney” Is Not The Next “Seinfeld”

After four years writing for Saturday Night Live, John Mulaney finds his eponymous sitcom on Fox’s fall schedule — but is he ready for primetime?

John Mulaney is not the new Jerry Seinfeld — but he is ready to face the inevitable comparisons his new Fox sitcom, Mulaney, will draw to NBC’s iconic comedy Seinfeld. Not only do both star stand-up comedians playing versions of themselves and revolve around the daily insanity spurred on by a group of oddball friends dominating his life, but each episode opens with him performing stand-up.

After the show’s first trailer was released, Twitter exploded with 140-character comparisons. “Is Mulaney supposed to be like Seinfeld?” The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman tweeted. “Mulaney is to Seinfeld as Muppet Babies is to The Muppets,” Pajiba posted. And wrote a story titled, “8 Ways The Trailer for Mulaney Resembles Seinfeld.”

Mulaney was nonplussed. “I was well aware from the beginning that people would make comparisons,” Mulaney told BuzzFeed while promoting the fall comedy — which he created and executive produces — at the ATX Television Festival. “It would be absurd to say Seinfeld wasn’t an influence on me growing up, and I would be lying if I said I wasn’t a fan. But the most egregious [similarity] is that I also do stand-up on the show.”

He added, “If the audience thinks it’s too similar, that’s what they think, but I don’t think there’s any point in distancing myself; if we’re even a tenth as good as Seinfeld, we’d be lucky.”

That hopeful fraction is one reason why Mulaney had no problem with Kevin Reilly, Fox’s now-ousted chairman of entertainment, saying Mulaney was “Seinfeld for a new generation” at the network’s upfront presentation to advertisers in May. The other reason lies in the purpose of the event.

“That’s a sales presentation,” he said of the yearly gathering of advertisers, where they’re exposed to — in the span of one week — every new show the broadcast networks plan to roll out. “They’re just trying to get people to buy ads so that is a totally acceptable thing to say to sell a show. It’s like saying something is ‘the next Coca-Cola.’ If you watch Shark Tank, you know you have to use whatever you have to sell something to people. Now, when it comes to marketing the show, the billboards are not going to say, ‘We’re as good as Seinfeld.’ I was well aware from the beginning that people would make comparisons, so it’s like we did it before anyone else could do it.”

Being able to anticipate critical response, both positive and negative, is an essential tool in a stand-up comedian’s arsenal — especially since, much like fronting an eponymous TV show, success or failure will be forever tied exclusively to your name.

“With stand-up, it’s always been my name, so if someone doesn’t like a show I do, it’s on me,” he said of deciding the sitcom would share his surname. “The sentence I’ve been trying to avoid my whole career is: John Mulaney isn’t funny.”

While six years of performing stand-up and four years writing on Saturday Night Live certainly put the 31-year-old on audience’s radars, Mulaney is quick to acknowledge that starring on a network sitcom boasting his name is another thing entirely, putting him in the crosshairs like never before.

“I was a little scared but I wanted to go,” he said, with a restrained giggle, about the decision to leave the Lorne Michaels-produced series after four years. “Lorne would roll his eyes at this, but, in my opinion, SNL is not going away anytime soon. That fact was lost on me until I was creating my own show, which can be taken away at any second. So, leaving a show that’s not going anywhere brings different levels of comfort and anxiety. With SNL, the show isn’t going anywhere, so my anxiety was about how I fit into the show. In L.A. [where Mulaney is produced], the show might be going somewhere so it’s less personal and more communal anxiety.”

And Mulaney knows, all too well, what it would feel like to lose his show because it’s already happened once before. Mulaney was originally created for NBC, but the network opted not to pick the show up to series in May 2013. Calling the experience “obviously disappointing,” Mulaney adds that he was most disheartened to not continue working with the cast of “incredible actors” he’d assembled: Martin Short, Elliot Gould, Nasim Pedrad, Zack Pearlman, and Seaton Smith.

Mulaney, along with Lorne Michaels (who is an executive producer), refused to send the series to the pilot graveyard in the sky and took a slightly re-worked version to Fox, where it was picked up for six episodes in October 2013. When asked if he thought Fox responded more positively to the series because of NBC’s tweaks or simply because they “got” what he was attempting to do, Mulaney remarked that it was a combination of the two.

“There were some tweaks, but Fox was interested in a pure comedy like this,” he said, before explaining what he’s come to understand about the pilot process in general. “It’s a weird thing to take a gamble on. They’re placing such big bets — even financially — that, if I’m to step outside and look at it objectively, passing on a show called Mulaney is not that crazy. So I have respect for the chances they have to take.”

And Fox is also taking a chance with Mulaney’s timeslot, scheduling it to air on Sunday nights, after The Simpsons, critical darling Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and the still-dominant Family Guy. But Mulaney can’t focus on that potentially risky timeslot because, despite having a head start thanks to an early series order, every episode brings with it a new set of problems, turning his beloved creation into an all-consuming behemoth.

“At home we talk about it like it’s a constant hurricane,” he said with a laugh, masking an undeniable hint of understandable frustration. “It’s a lot of decisions to make. I think I learned to just make decisions and some of them are totally going to be wrong, but no one’s keeping score day to day with a gun to your head. Also, nothing will get done if I don’t just start making decisions. It’s the most high-pressure thing I’ve ever done, but I also have to be more cavalier than I’ve ever been before, so, it’s become such an all-encompassing presence in my life. But that’s the way it should be.”

Mulaney premieres this fall on Fox.

Why The Biggest Loser Winner Is Not ‘Too Thin’

A lot of people are freaking out about the winner of the Biggest Loser because she is too “skeletal” now. The winner, Rachel Frederickson, started out weighing 260 lbs and ended at 105, making her the biggest loser ever.

Now despite the fact that losing weight is such a central part of the show that it is named THE BIGGEST LOSER, apparently some people didn't really understand what they were signing up to watch. Instead of being impressed by Rachel's dramatic and record-setting transformation, they're calling her skeletal, blaming the show for encouraging it, and saying she shouldn't even be the winner. In other words, the typical reaction that occurs when you give people who hold the delusional belief that their opinions matter access to Twitter. 

Let's start with her weight, because that's what people seem to care about. I personally wouldn't call her skeletal. Have you ever seen an actual anorexic person or like, a Holocaust survivor? That is fucking skeletal. Rachel is the size of a mother of three who spends a lot of time at Soul Cycle or like, Kate Middleton. [Betch 2, however, thinks she looks “scary,” to which I point out and she agrees, she looks no scarier than women we regularly see on the streets of Manhattan. If she looks scary it's because it's unnatural for her, not because of the size itself.] But what a shame that she didn't lose the exact amount of weight that you, internet commenter, wanted her to lose, within the confines of what you define as normal. 

If a person who was naturally thin and athletic were to have that body their whole life, no one would think twice. True, she may be slightly “underweight” at the end of a grueling competition show where weight loss becomes your life. Are you really going to attack her for that? I guarantee that if she were overweight by the amount she is underweight, and someone were to go around declaring her TOO FAT, that person would be fucking demonized.

But the most amazing part to me is how the same people who idolize airbrushed celebrities and waif-like models, and pay billions to the diet industry so they themselves can lose weight, will just turn around and start criticizing someone for achieving it. It reminds me of when Breaking Bad was ending, and Walter White became “too evil” for the fans and suddenly everyone mutually decided he had to either be arrested or die. Like really, you supported this character and wanted him to succeed as a meth dealer, but one day he crosses some imaginary moral line and everyone flips their opinions, just so they don't have to see themselves as horrible people for liking Walter White. I mean, he was great when he was a meth dealer and a murderer, but once he kidnapped his own daughter I just couldn't get behind him anymore.

The Biggest Loser is really not that different. One day everyone sees that the thing they've been rooting for (Walter White/weight loss) has gone too far, so of course they should immediately turn around and slam it rather than consider that the only reason it exists is because they encouraged it to get here. If no one watched or supported the message, it wouldn't still be on. 

Now there are those who claim the show gives the contestants eating disorders. Yeah, fucking duh. You take a bunch of people who are seriously overweight, which is likely a result of existing disordered eating patterns (just not in a way that makes them thinner), and you throw them into a competitive environment where they have nothing to do but work out and eat celery for months in the hopes of looking hot and winning cash. You have producers and trainers and doctors monitoring their every move to “motivate” them. You film their every move and force them to reflect constantly on how much is invested in their weight loss journey to the point where it's literally the only thing that matters in their lives. And you're surprised that this environment breeds eating disorders? Yet you still watch it.

You stay classy, Rachel Frederickson.

Kim Kardashian Admits She Kept Her Pregnancy A Secret From Her Family For This Heartbreaking Reason

The 10-year anniversary special of  had all the emotions. They focused a lot on happy moments and the signature Kardashian group hug, but there was also never-before-scene clips that included a few sad moments. One of the more emotional topics was Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy secret.

As it turns out, when Kim was pregnant with her first child, North West, it wasn’t all smooth sailing. First of all, the news that she was pregnant was shocking and unexpected. She revealed that she and Kanye weren’t trying to get pregnant — it was a surprise to both of them.

Khloé and I went to a fertility doctor and they said they thought it would be really hard for me. I was about to freeze my eggs and I randomly got pregnant. I remember calling [Kanye] and he thought a family member of mine had died I was so hysterical. I thought my life was over that I was pregnant, it was so hard for me.

Kim also added with a smile,

Obviously, it’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

I mean, obviously. Have you seen her kids? They are seriously the cutest.

The biggest bombshell was dropped when Kim divulged that she thought she miscarried. You could tell it was still difficult to talk about. She said,

Because it was just a few weeks in and I was so scared and I was having so much pain. I mean, at one point, I thought I had a miscarriage… I was like pretty certain about it. I didn’t know myself, like what was going on, and so I flew all the way home on Thanksgiving.

A clip was shown of Kim in a hotel room experiencing back and stomach pain to the point of tears. She continued,

The doctor told me, ‘If there’s no heartbeat, you had a miscarriage. Let’s get through it, come in after Thanksgiving dinner. It will be private, no one will be in here.’ I went in that morning and he’s like ‘There’s a heartbeat, you didn’t have a miscarriage.’ I’m like, ‘Oh my God, this is a sign.’ I mean, it was such an emotional Thanksgiving and Kourtney was the only one who knew about it, her and Kanye, because we were in Miami living together and I was like ‘I got to get home.’

If you have followed either of Kim’s pregnancies, she had a very difficult time with both North and Saint.

In 2015, six weeks shy of her due date with Saint, Kim told E! News,

I’m really not complaining, I’m just being honest and being honest about [it]. I hate it. You know pregnancy is not for me …

You know I’ve heard stories forever about how amazing pregnancy is from my mom and Kourtney and that’s just not the case for me and I’m not going to sit here and lie and act like it’s the most blissful experience. It’s awful.

Kim openly dealt with health issues during both her pregnancies. She continued,

Every medical issue that you could probably have I feel like I get and I worry so much about it.

This pregnancy I have a little bit more anxiety just because I know what’s to come and it’s really inevitable some of the issues that I’m going to have. You know, I have a high-risk delivery and all of that gives me such anxiety.

I think that I’m really hopeful and you know I manage it really well, but when I write blog posts and stuff like that about how I think it’s just such a miserable experience. I mean that’s my experience and I’m not gonna pretend that it’s not …

My huge swollen feet I don’t find fun and attractive. And I get I’m so blessed to be carrying a child again when I didn’t think that was possible for me.

I do have access to amazing doctors that have been so helpful so I’m hopeful that everything will work out and be fine.

Kim Kardashian sharing her pregnancy struggles must’ve been very difficult, but I’m sure women everywhere related on some level. Glad everything turned out OK. Love you, Kimmy!

Girls Recap: Soft Core Ping Porn

Sunday's episode of Girls was like watching your fat funny friend try and squeeze her way into a size 4 body contour dress. Slow, heartbreakingly painful, and extremely unattractive.

Let's start with the opening scene. What the fuck is Hannah wearing and does she not own a full length body mirror so as to be able to see how large her legs look in that romper? Anyway Joshua comes in and has a fight with Ray because Ray is probs in a shitty mood lately since Shoshana has realized that the fact that her boyfriend is homeless means she doesn't have to fuck him every night. Ray then actually calls Joshua a fucking meatball which is weird because there's a real meatball in a romper standing right next to him.

So really, HBO we're supposed to believe that the REALLY HOT guy from The Switch and Young Adult lives in Brooklyn, is a doctor, and fucks girls that look like Hannah for three days straight. We think not.

Hannah goes to Joshua's to spill her Usher style confessions and winds up kissing him. Honestly the only accurate thing about this episode was the notion that the biggest aphrodisiac for a twenty-something broke girl is a guy who can afford the finest Macy's kitchenware and a brownstone.

Okay so Hannah claims in season 1 that she's only had sex with two guys yet her whole new experiences kick has her fucking random junkies and people she meets on the street left and right.

Joshua tells Hannah she's beautiful and I immediately think, “Shit. Not this bullshit again.” Why do people always try and say this shit in shows and movies like everyone is fucking beautiful. They're not. Sure it's subjective but just like some people are objectively not funny and not smart, objectively not everyone is fucking beautiful so Girls should stop trying to pretend like they are. This isn't a goddamn Dove commercial.

Which brings us back to the running theme of every episode. Why does Hannah constantly have to show her boobs? This isn't Game of Thrones, the pointless nudity shit is extremely unpleasing to the eye. Like Hannah could you not play ping pong with a fucking bra and shorts on? Watching this episode feels like the agony of waiting for that foreign film in French class to end where you have no idea what's going on in order to say you've observed something semi cultured.

Hannah faints in Joshua's shower because she's as overwhelmed as a tween touching Justin Bieber's shoe at a concert at her stroke of luck that someone would want to have three whole sleepovers with her. This whole “please don't tell anyone this but I want to be happy” rant is such bullshit and I can really appreciate how even Joshua can sense that this girl has too much emotional meta baggage to fit in with his Pier 1 imports. But at least Hannah can call herself out on her pseudo tortured artist wanna-be lifestyle.

Finally, Hannah has not changed her underwear in like 3 days in order to add a special frosting to the disgustingness pie. In addition, no one seems to know/care where she's been.

Some decent quotes

“I put trash in places it shouldn't really go it's kind of like my vice.” Right Hannah, that's your vice – not food, cocaine, or fucking junkies. Garbage pails are your worst habit.

'What the fuck are you guys looking at? Go back to your panda videos before I turn off the wi-fi.”

217. Law & Order: SVU

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit occupies a special place in every betch’s heart and Tuesday night schedule. We can’t remember that “really important thing” we promised to do today, but you bet your ass we know the opening monologue by heart and can recite it better than the Pledge of Allegiance.

In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories. Dun-dun. Or is it dink-dink? Dum-dum? Whatever, moving on.

It’s important to note that not all Law & Orders are created equal. We didn’t fuck with Law & Order: Angry Vincent D’Onofrio or Law & Order: Snoozefest. SVU is special and the only thing we would marathon in which we'd ever partake. Props to Dick Wolf for making a career out of being a SAB: each week he reels us in until we’re hooked, entertains us for a solid hour, and then just when shit’s starting to get good he fades to black with EXECUTIVE PRODUCER DICK WOLF, leaving us wanting more. Oh and then he makes us wait an entire week to get it.

Any pre-law betch will agree, SVU taught us everything we know about the legal system. Like if a cop even tries to ask me what time it is I’m lawyering the fuck up, and no one’s allowed within 10 feet of my car, purse, or apartment without a warrant.

Plus, those “ripped from the headlines” episodes were the only reason we ever tried to keep up with current events. The best part was how they didn’t even try to be discreet or original about it. “College kids getting fucked up off Four Loko? Better have an episode where a college girl gets raped after drinking 5 Krazies.” “A famous Southern TV chef just caused major drama for being a huge racist? Let’s make an ep about a famous Southern TV chef who causes major drama for being a huge racist.” Talk about the writers not doing work; it was essentially just watching the news, with a few chokeholds and cheesy one-liners thrown in to make us obsessed with it.

Also this show taught us a lot of prime vocab words that’s super handy to throw into every day conversation, such as severe vaginal trauma and anal contusions and objection.

Finally, the SVU detectives are like the baggage-ridden, emotionally unstable group of besties we never had—well I mean aside from our actual besties. You don’t need a Buzzfeed quiz to tell you your favorite SVU detective says a lot about you.

Benson: You’re a boss ass betch with great hair and even better bone structure. Obvs the best part of a new season was discovering which trendy haircut Mariska Hartigay would try out. Somehow she managed to rock them all, even the infamous pixie cut of Season 3.

Stabler: You never take no for an answer, even if it puts you and everyone around you in jeopardy of losing your jobs and even your lives. So like, congrats.

Amaro: No one ever takes you seriously and you think it’s because you’re new, but really it’s because you’re too pretty.

Rollins: You’re the Southern betch trying to make it in the big city. Extra points if you have a real gambling addiction.

Munch: You’re the betch who’s so skeptical of technology she doesn’t even have Instagram, and like, what is Vine? You’d be most likely to post a political rant on Facebook, except you’re way skeptical of that, too.

Jeffries: She doesn't even go here! Get with the program.

Ice-T: You’re a bona fide hustler and probably came up from a hard past and did some things you’re not proud of, and we like totally respect that.

So thank you for everything, SVU. Now that you’re in your 14th season, you’ve officially been in a betch’s life way longer than any bro except for maybe our dads.

New Girl Recap: Team Jessnicka

Holy fucking girl porn. Last night’s episode of “New Girl” totally made up for all the previous head-scratching episodes that have been boring as fuck (ex: Nick in the swimming pool, the one with Nick’s dad etc.).  In short, OMGBESTEPISODEEVER.

Nick steals his neighbor’s Inspector Gadget trench-coat after the package gets delivered to their apartment (we forgive the writers from stealing this storyline from the “Friends” cheesecake episode) and refuses to take it off because he thinks it makes him more outgoing. Turns out the trench-coat has magical powers because he actually manages to use his pathetic, 80 year-old, cranky ass charm at the bar to chat up a noticeably brunette Brooklyn Decker. Schmidt’s not happy because he can’t understand how a loser with a sob story wearing a woman’s coat could score Brooklyn’s attention. We agreed with Schmidt until we remembered she’s married to Andy Roddick, so gremlin looking men are clearly her type.

Winston brings nothing to the table as usual. He can’t manage to talk to any girls at the bar, which we totally buy because he sucks. He ends up chatting with the Asian psycho from the Social Network. She attempts to make him somewhat more interesting than the paper box Jess wears this episode. Jess is left at home because Nick realizes she’s his “cooler” AKA cockblock, which we would believe if Nick possessed any game whatsoever. Jess thinks someone’s breaking in and freaks out and obv calls her knight-in-shining-loser Nick to come rescue her and we’re like awww but immediately forget about it because Jess looks skinny in her bra. Everyone comes home and plays “True American: Clinton Edition”, or what appears to be the best game ever so Jess can help Nick get some and prove she’s not a cooler. I wish I could understand at least one rule because they make jumping on shit and getting fucked up look like a fucking blast.

Cece shows up with her British Indian man-friend and everyone joins in on harassing Nick & Jess to kiss as part of “True American.” Nick obviously drops the ball…only to make up for it in the best plot development to ever grace “New Girl” when Nick spontaneously grabs Jess in the hallway and pulls her in for a surprisingly non-nauseating and insanely adorable make out sesh and we were all like YES.  Nick sometimes sucks and Jess is annoying but together they’re the suckiest and most annoyingly charming couple…team Jessnicka.

Other Shining Moments:

Cece's date about Schmidt: “I’m sorry… you love that small, shiny man?”

Jess on being scared: “Seriously, I think it may be gang related. I’ve always been worried about my blue curtains…Crips.”

Schmidt on seducing Brooklyn: “Sometimes I urniate when the wind bows…::makes wind sound::…ce…ce…You know, I left something in the desert that day: my faith in true love and my biracial child”

Schmidt in True American: “It’s Abu Nazir!”

Matthew Lewis has really grown up nicely, and he’s showing that off in his new role on Bluestone 42, a BBC Three dramedy following the lives of a bomb disposal detachment serving in Afghanistan.

Lewis joined the second season, currently airing in the U.K., as Corporal Gordon House, a butcher’s son who is good with his hands — and his hips, as you can see in a couple of drool-worthy GIFs from a recent episode.
