NBC is giving Jenna "aids is a state of mind not a disease" Elfman a new series
She is our current Ball.
How many failed series must she have before they stop? Must be the scieno connection.
How does this untalented wench keep getting TV series? She is just God-awful! Who is she blowing?

Did she really say that??? Oh, dear.
I think that is what the Scientologists believe, r4
"AIDS is a state of mind, not a disease," is the reason Elfman gave in 1999 for refusing to support a charity for HIV-positive children.
I tried to watch that shitty Dharma and Greg show years ago and couldn't make it through even one episode. It was just toooo precious. Awful show.
I liked it at the beginning, r7. I thought it was good. As usual with the Scienos though, Elfmann insisted on hiring fellow cult members and the show tanked accordingly. The showrunners caved because she was basically the show.
As far as a secret cabal, I think it's just a sign of how creatively bankrupt Hollywood is now.
Konstant Kardashian Krap!!
Gladiator battles--in the kitchen Iron Chef America!!
It's completely fucked.
She's a BIG TIME Scientologist. I don't know why people keep hiring her.
I used to go to school with this idiot. St. Genevieve's high school 1985/1986 Jennifer Butala. Looked like a goofy idiot with braces. Still looks like a goofy idiot.
Well it might be. No one gets AIDS anymore. When is the last time you heard anyone famous getting it? They used to be dropping like flies.
She's a fucked up Scientologist. They don't believe in diseases. If anything, they are "considerations."
Cartoonist Robert Crumb, whose close friend, a French AIDS activist, died recently, gave an interview in which he said HIV and AIDS are not connected at all. He didn't say i was a state of mind, however.
Her most recent show was about her dating a younger guy. It didn't last long so this one shouldn't last long either.
She was funny on SHAMELESS as Jill, the violent lesbian.
Call me after they've given her the lead in 15 shows to try to make her a star. She's an amateur. And a, dare I say, hack?
She needs a healthy dose of malaria to make her scientology real.
I wonder if Jenna thinks getting canceled is a "state of mind" and just continued to show up at the networks ready to work.
Maybe it just became easier to cast her in pilots than to get her to leave.
So did I r10! Jenna Butala. That's crazy. She must have left your school and come to mine which was an arts magnet in LA. She was in the dance department and we graduated in a very small class together. We were actually friends at the time, and stayed in touch when I was at JuIlliard. She was very sweet as I recall. We lost touch when she got into Scientology, and then she randomly became famous as an actress which she displayed absolutely not talent for previously.
I'm sad to see what's she's become. We ran into each other at an awards show about ten years ago, and were friendly.
She's an awful actress and if R6 is right mean-spirited as well. She's welcome to her beliefs but it was children after all. I've heard she's a raving bitch now.
Don't forget her on the street confrontation with a guy on the street who was wearing a t-shirt mocking Tom Cruise where she screamed that the guy was a child molester.
God I find her awful and always have. She is extremely unattractive and unfunny.
That seems to be a favorite meme of theirs R21.
Some New Age gurus claim that all diseases (mental and physical) are manifestations of a constant stream of negative thinking.
I cannot stand Jenna Elfman and Patricia Heaton after I found out about their strong beliefs (Jenna: Scientology / Patricia: conservative anti women politcs).
I checked her Wiki page and there is an entire section devoted to her "philanthorpy" -- a list of her celebrity charity appearances. Not kidding. Dates of appearances are given.
I found the weirdest blurb, where two DL interests intersect in the middle of this PR list .
[quote]In September 2008, Elfman joined the Charity Water month-long "September Campaign," asking for donations in lieu of birthday gifts in order to raise money to build freshwater wells in Ethiopia.
I think this is right around the time Michele Arnold started her Six in the City blog.
