is that details of her saga — Harding was banned for life from competitive skating for her role in an attack on fellow figure skater Nancy Kerrigan — were obscured by the O. First by her mother (Allison Janney), then by her husband, Jeff Gillooly (Sebastian Stan), who, for Harding represented an extension of a pattern — intimacy intertwined with violence — that she learned at home. The movie is a pitch-black comedy, told with a wink and a smirk by unreliable narrators, who include Harding, her mother, and her husband — all presenting self-serving versions of the truth, often standing in arch contrast to the images we are shown.

By season three, the focus became more about Christy and Bonnie and their group from AA, while the restaurant set, the kids and Baxter roles were reduced significantly.

The series gives Faris, who had guest-starred in various television programs between her film projects and been sought after for other television projects (including a failed pilot called Blue Skies that was being produced for NBC), her first full-time television role, as she landed the part of the lead character, Christy, in January 2013.

The following week, the network announced that it would place the sitcom in the Monday night pm (ET/PT) time slot following 2 Broke Girls.

However, after the cancelation of We Are Men, 2 Broke Girls was moved into the show's pm slot, with repeats of The Big Bang Theory occupying the 9 pm lead-in time slot to Mom until the season debut of Mike & Molly on November 4, 2013.

It’s easy enough to laugh when these accounts relate to the lunkheaded conspiracy enacted by Team Harding that left Kerrigan injured.

But we also see Gillooly strike Harding (and vice versa), gasp-inducing moments that shift, just a few beats later, back to comedy.

“Extra’s” Tanika Ray sat down with Toni Braxton at Universal Studios Hollywood, where she opened up about her public battle with lupus.

Braxton revealed, “Some days it slows me down, but I know I have to pace myself.” She also addressed rumors that she is dating Birdman.

The second season was met with even more positive reviews.
