If you think Lena Dunham's nudity in “Girls” is a revolutionary act because her body doesn't conform to Hollywood's skin-and-bones-and-boobs ideal (and I do!), then you really have to give her props for taking that unapologetic attitude about her figure to another level in last week's episode of “Girls.” Dunham's character, Hannah Horvath, is often seen in various states of undress, but those scenes usually take place in the privacy of her apartment. In this episode , however, we rarely see her fully clothed.

Mindy Kaling has slammed the lid down on the brouhaha surrounding her Elle magazine cover, one of four shots featuring different ladies for the mag's Women in TV Issue.
