Mindy Kaling’s tweet about ‘flirty’ siblings on TV sparks a discussion

Published

on

Mindy Kaling has an interesting theory about white families on TV — and it seems like she’s not alone in her opinion.

Earlier this week, the “Mindy Project” star tweeted, “With white families on tv, the brothers and sisters are always, like flirty with each other.”

Kaling’s post was liked more than 52 thousand times on Twitter, sparking a spirited conversation about past examples of on-screen chemistry between TV siblings and stepsiblings.

“Friends” was a prominent example in the discussion, with one Twitter user saying that Kaling’s tweet described Ross (David Schwimmer) and Monica Geller (Courteney Cox) from “Friends,” and their closeness.

One Twitter user said the “inappropriateness” between Monica and Ross was “toe-curling” at times, continuing, “Like the time Rachel describes her first kiss with Ross, and Monica responds like she’s absolutely *not* Ross’s sister? She’s super excited and says ‘oh my god’ like it’s a really arousing story when it’s about her sibling?!”

The tweet also had people revisiting shows from their childhood, like the Canadian TV series “Life With Derek” that once aired on Disney Channel in the U.S.

The show was about two kids who battled for control of their household after they became stepsiblings.

Many Twitter users felt the chemistry between Derek, played by Michael Seater, and Casey, portrayed by Ashley Leggat, was a little … off.

One person wrote, “The older brother and sister liked each other period.” And another said of the stepsiblings’ apparent attraction, “It’s so uncomfortable, but was so blatant the whole freaking time.”

One Twitter user posted an exchange between Derek and Casey in which they discussed the distinction between sibling and stepsibling. Derek seemed to emphasize that there was a distinction.

On the topic of stepsiblings, Marcia and Greg’s kiss in “A Very Brady Sequel,” which took place at a wedding, naturally made the discussion. Actors Maureen McCormick and Barry Williams had an off-screen romance that may have contributed to the characters’ on-screen chemistry.

The “Brady Brunch” clip prompted people to revisit memories of how they initially processed the moment when they encountered it as kids.

“Clueless” is a movie, not a TV show, but still featured an ex-stepbrother and stepsister falling in love, and was part of the discussion.

The Twitter thread also veered to include incidents of outright incest, or relationships that came close. Viewers pointed to the scene in “Seventh Heaven” when siblings Mary (Jessica Biel) and Matt (Barry Watson) almost kissed, before their father caught them.

“Dexter” was another show mentioned. At one point, Debra Morgan reveals she has romantic feelings for her adoptive brother, Dexter Morgan. Stars Jennifer Carpenter and Michael C. Hall met on set, married and divorced over the course of the show’s run, per EW.

On the Liverpool-set soap opera “Brookside” from the ’80s and ’90s, a brother and sister acted on their attraction, and openly fell in love.

Similarly, on Élite, half-siblings Lu (Danna Paola) and Valerio (Jorge López) are romantically involved.

“Game of Thrones” went the same route as the aforementioned two series, with Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) carrying out a years-long affair. Jaime pushes Bran Stark out of a high window when he discovers them together, inciting much of the show’s action. (Incidentally, in the novels that inspired the show, Jamie and Cersei’s relationship is only one of many instances of incest).

And then, there’s the relief some characters feel upon finding out they’re not siblings. On the show “Brother and Sisters,” when Justin Walker (Dave Annable) finds out Rebecca (Emily VanCamp) isn’t his long-lost sister, he kisses her. “It’s not incestuous, we do find out she wasn’t a Walker,” Annable told the L.A. Daily News.

The list goes on and on, with commenters throwing out examples in shows like “Elite,” “The Vampire Diaries,” “The Borgias,” and “Degrassi: The Next Generation.”

There’s a reason there are so many examples. With this tweet, Kaling calls attention to a long-held pop culture trend trend, which EW labeled “the almost-incest plot” in a piece from earlier this year.

A 2011 Salon story titled, “Why is incest all over prime time?” pointed to four prestige shows on the air at the time, including “Dexter,” Boardwalk Empire,” and “Game of Thrones,” that featured borderline or outright romantic relationships between siblings.

The normalization of, or fascination with, these types of relationship goes back even further. A 1997 story from the New York Times pointed to a trend of incest as a theme in literature and TV. “Incest is the plat du jour in the 90’s marketplace, the sudden Zeitgeist zapping a jaded American audience,” the article read.

Whether it’s 1997, 2011, or 2022, this taboo topic gets people talking, and watching — as Kaling’s thread demonstrates. For all its controversy, maybe that’s why this plot line keeps making its way to our screens.

Women Are Sharing The Most Sexist Thing A Man Has Ever Told Them In A Professional Setting

Published

on

32.

“In college, I was hardworking, hungry, and eager. I had to be better than everyone else in the room as a music industry minor and videography major, which, at the time, were very male-dominated fields. I have many examples of inappropriate and nasty things done while I was a student and employee, but here’s the worst: One semester, I sought out an internship. My professor got me an interview with the manager of a band that happened to be my favorite band of all time. However, he sternly warned me, ‘Don’t go sleeping around with the band! I’m not going out on a limb to get you this internship just so you can fuck all the band members and cause mayhem! I don’t want to be responsible for another Yoko Ono!’ Then, during introductions, he winked and told the manager, ‘She’s pretty, but she’s smart, too! I already warned her about being a groupie and told her she isn’t allowed to flirt with the boys!'”

“I had done nothing but exude professionalism and express excitement for the professional opportunity up to that point. I certainly hadn’t said or done anything to suggest that was in it to ‘fuck the band.’ I was too stunned to say anything other than, ‘Okay…?’

It was horrifying, embarrassing, and degrading, but I hadn’t learned to find my voice and didn’t know what I didn’t have to take yet. The music industry ended up being a brutal industry to be in as a woman. I could be standing behind a mixing board in a venue with my hands on the knobs, and a band’s tech would ask me where our sound guy was. During introductions with new bands or agents, I was almost always asked whose girlfriend I was (I couldn’t possibly be in the room as a professional!).

I was also consistently told to not entice my male cohorts by being so sexy if I wanted to be respected and taken seriously — but also was told to be as sexy as possible for shows and events. Ultimately, I got the internship and established a lifelong relationship with everyone I worked with, and that manager went on to mentor me for years. Unfortunately, I don’t see a whole lot of progress in the music industry, even today.” —Anonymous, Virginia, 42

Mila Kunis Reacts to Ashton Kutcher’s Tequila-Fueled ‘I Love You’ Story (Exclusive)

Published

on

Mila Kunis is telling her sober side of her husband, Ashton Kutcher’s “I love you” story. ET spoke to Kunis at the premiere of her new film, Luckiest Girl Alive, where she confirmed Kutcher’s story, dished on the film and more.

Earlier this week, during a new episode of his Peloton interview and marathon training series, Our Future Selves, Kutcher spoke to Kenny Chesney, about the hilarious way his hit song, “You and Tequila” helped him drunkenly profess his love to Kunis for the first time.

“I showed up drunk at her house, at like two in the morning, and I just started screaming, ‘You and tequila make me crazy,'” Kutcher recalled. “And I told her I love her, and she said, ‘Don’t say it if you don’t mean it. Are you gonna love me in the morning when you wake up from this hangover?'”

And sure enough, Kutcher did, telling Kunis the next day that he indeed still felt the same way he did the night before during his drunken romp.

“It really happened,” Kunis said, corroborating her husband’s tequila-fueled tale. “Oh, I remember that night. I didn’t have tequila. I was sober and I was like, ‘Oh my god.’ It happened, guys.”

As for when she knew she loved Kutcher, Kunis said it was at the same time.

In her new thriller, Kunis plays TifAni “Ani” FaNelli, a New York woman who appears to have it all, from the sought-after job at a glossy magazine to the dream Nantucket wedding. But all of that is threatened when a crime documentary director interviews her about a “shocking incident” that took place at her prestigious high school when she was a teenager. As a result, Ani is forced to confront the truth about what actually happened. 

It took seven years to make, a feat Kunis called “amazing.”

“I think it’s amazing that this movie got made… close to six to seven years to make it, so, the fact that it happened is a feat all in its own, and the outcome has just exceeded everyone’s expectation, myself included,” she said.

While she’s previously spoken to ET about how she got into character and portrayed some of the film’s toughest moments, Thursday night she was all about gushing over the film’s young cast, who all called Kunis an “icon.”

“That makes me feel very old,” Kunis quipped said after hearing about the praise from her young cast mates. “They are all insanely talented. They don’t need to look up to me, they’re incredibly brilliant without me, but yeah it’s kind of strange to be the old person in the room.”

One member of that young cast is Chiara Aurelia, who plays the teenage version of Ani. Aurelia, who also spoke to ET Thursday said she hopes viewers, both young and old, are inspired by the story told in the film.

“I hope people are inspired by this story,” Aurelia said. “I hope that it creates conversation. I think I hope that people are inspired, and hopefully show that you really can find your voice.”

Luckiest Girl Alive will be showing in select theaters on Sept. 30 and premieres on Netflix on Oct. 7.
