With “House Of Cards” co-star Kevin Spacey on the outs over claims of sexual abuse and writers feverishly rewriting the script for the Netflix show’s sixth season, actress Robin Wright has been busy in her own right.
…doing something a little more productive.
The actress made a public appearance on Saturday — her first since the controversy centering on Spacey exploded — to promote her pajama line Pour Les Femmes at the Century City Nordstrom department store.
Netflix announced last week that this will be the last season for House of Cards after “Star Trek” actor Anthony Rapp said Spacey made sexual advances toward him when he was just 14 years old.
…meaning Wright will soon be out of work, courtesy of Spacey’s sexual appetite.

Pour Les Femmes is a socially conscious sleepwear company founded by Wright and designer Karen Fowler.
The company’s website notes the two friends started the company with one goal, to “make simple, beautiful, and quality pieces while creating economic opportunity for women in conflict regions around the globe.”
Wright, an avowed feminist, posted a video on her Twitter account sharing the details that led to her and Fowler forming Pour Les Femmes:

In addition to Wright, there are hundreds of “House of Cards” cast and crew members, some who have said they too were victims of Spacey’s sexual advances, according to CNN, soon to find themselves unemployed.
As for how the end of Frank Underwood may be handled on the show, on the British version of House of Cards, the inspiration for the character, Francis Urquhart, played by Ian Richardson — was shot and killed on the show’s finale.
