Danielle Brooks Thinks 'OITNB' Season 7 Will Be Her Last

Danielle Brooks was one of the best parts of Orange Is the New Black‘s fifth season and we hope that the Emmys recognize her individually for the first time this year. Sadly for fans, she might not be in the show past the seventh season.

The 27-year-old actress opened up to EW about her future with the hit Netflix series, which might even end with the seventh season.

“We have until seven for sure. To be honest, I don’t know if I want to play an inmate past that,” Danielle said. “I don’t know if I want to do that because I have a lot in me and a lot that I want to share with the world and different characters I want to be able to bring to life. After seven, I think it might be time for me to spread my wings, but I don’t want to speak too fast on that.”

We’d be sad to see Taystee leave the show!

Taylor and Laverne both praised the show for dealing and echoing the real issues that is going on in today’s time.

“There’s a ripple effect and in our case it allows for the audience to see people who may be outside of their sexuality, race, socioeconomic status, size, gender or many number of things and see how it relates to them,” Taylor said. “I think crossing those lines is a political act, but that’s not the genesis of it.”

“It has us constantly thinking beyond ourselves because the stakes are so high,” Laverne said.

Season 5 of OITNB is set to premiere on Netflix on June 9.

Jessica Chastain & Lena Dunham Slam Bill O'Reilly at Power of Women Event

Jessica Chastain and Lena Dunham hit the carpet while attending Variety’s Power of Women event on Friday morning (April 21) at Cipriani Midtown in New York City.

The ladies both spoke at the event and took time to slam Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly, who was just fired from The O’Reilly Factor amid claims of sexual harassment.

Lena spoke to honor Gretchen Carlson, who was the first woman at Fox News to speak out against sexual harassment at the company.

“I’m in the very privileged position to be able to say whatever the f–k I want most of the time,” Lena said (via Variety). “But when you work in a corporate infrastructure the challenge of coming out about sexual harassment is so massive. And to see a woman who surmounted that and bravely made space for other women to do the same is deeply inspired.”

“We also should’ve known a few years ago about Bill O’Reilly when he confused a loofah with a falafel. So this isn’t fresh info,” she added.

Jessica decided not to refer to Bill by his name during her speech.

“Most recently women said ‘No’ to a certain Fox News anchor,” she said. “After years of sexual assault accusations and settlements were unearthed, women’s rights groups called for the advertisers to pull their support from the show and companies listened. And so did Fox. As a result, the 8 o’clock news hour will be known as simply ‘The Factor.’ This is our collective power in action.”

Other women in attendance included Salma Hayek, Audra McDonald, Danielle Brooks, Chelsea Clinton, Gayle King, Ashley Graham, Vanessa Bayer, and Tina Knowles.

FYI: Jessica is wearing a Carolina Herrera dress and Stella Luna shoes. Ashley is wearing a Fleur du Mal corset and Schutz shoes.

“Women are seeing themselves and are feeling beautiful about their bodies because they’re having people who are bold enough to say that they’re fearless in their skin. It’s been cool to get their reaction and see women be proud to be in bathing suits and not be afraid of showing stretch marks or whatever,” she said.

FYI: Danielle is wearing an Urban Zen by Donna Karan jumpsuit, Chloe Gosselin shoes, a Sondra Roberts clutch, and John Hardy earrings.
