Amber Heard Is Dating Someone New, Jane Lynch Slept With Someone Famous
Plus you'll never guess who just came out!
Amber Heard Continues To Downgrade From Tasya Van Ree
First there was a short-lived, acrimonious marriage to irreverent film icon and allegedly abusive Johnny Depp. Now Amber has gone and shacked up with the billionaire who brought us Tesla, a line of excellent cars driven by sanctimonious millionaire bros. Amber clearly likes an older man. “What is wrong with her?” my girlfriend just asked. I don’t know, Lauren. No one knows. Amber Heard confirmed the relationship on Instagram, the CNN of celebrity news.
Caitlyn Jenner Regrets Voting For Trump
Two years after Caitlyn Jenner’s explosive post-transition interview with Diane Sawyer, the conservative trans reality celebrity is back and ready to talk Trump. During the election cycle, Jenner was a vocal Trump supporter. Now, after the Trump administration has expressed a willingness to shit on every aspect of the LGBTQ community, Jenner regrets that choice. “Here’s the deal: Yes, I did vote for Trump, but here’s the deal-breaker with the Republican party and the deal-breaker is you mess with my community, you do the wrong thing with my community, you don’t give us equality and a fair shot, I’m coming after you. It comes to all equality issues for the entire LGBT community, okay? What we need is we need federal guidance, just like the previous administration said that it was okay to serve as a trans person in the military. We have front line people, okay, and I’m talking marines, trans guys, marines on the front line fighting for our country. I’m trying to get, especially the Republican party, to make a change.”
Too little, too late.
Ruby Rose Returns To OITNB
Glamour confirmed that Ruby Rose will be reprising her role as Stella Carlin in Season 5 of OITNB. There aren’t many details of her character’s importance in the new Season, but it has been revealed that Season 5 will occur “in real-time over the course of three days” following Poussey’s very "lesbian trope" death.
Sarah Paulson One Of Time’s 100 Most Influential People
The out actress has been lauded by her Carol co-star Cate Blanchett, who wrote in her profile of Paulson for the magazine, “When someone is as unique and unboxable as Sarah Paulson, it takes time for creative spaces to open up that are large and porous enough to hold the depth and complexity of her talent. In remaining true to her distinct voice, she has been at the forefront of a generation of women who are changing the landscape of the film and television industry... When I first met her, on the set of Carol, I was floored by her buoyancy, her irreverence, her left-field sense of humor and her devotion to her craft. You enter a scene with Sarah and it’s game on. She brings with her, in work as in life, the sense that anything is possible. Anything.” And that's something we like to hear!
Jane Lynch Slept With Hilary Rosen
I had to Google Hilary Rosen, so she’s not shallow famous so much as important famous. In a new interview with out journalist Mary Emily O’Hara for NBC News, O’Hara asked, “Who is the most famous woman you've ever slept with?” Lynch replied “Me! I'm the most famous woman I've ever slept with. No, okay ... Hilary Rosen. I just gave you a scoop. You're welcome. Oh, and Hilary: you're welcome too.” Juicy. Hilary Rosen is the former head of the Recording Industry Association of America, former columnist for The Washington Post, former HRC Lobbyist, and former political director of Huffington Post. I don’t know what she’s up to now. Probably napping, what with all that work and bedding Jane Lynch.
Shannon Purser Comes Out
The actor, best known for her scene-stealing role as Barb in Stranger Things, came out as bisexual on Twitter. The revelation comes in the midst of scandal. Purser is currently co-starring in the CW’s Archie reboot Riverdale, which queer fans accused of queerbaiting because they teased audiences with a kiss between Betty and Veronica, then promptly eliminated the chances of those two ever getting together. This is textbook queerbaiting. When outraged LGBTQ audiences came at Shannon on Twitter, Shannon responded by coming out as bisexual and saying she had never heard of queerbaiting before. Welcome to the community, Shannon!
Jackie Warner Charged With Felony Assault, Misdemeanor DUI
The lesbian star of Bravo’s Workout has been charged with felony assault on a police officer, misdemeanor DUI and misdemeanor hit-and-run based on her February arrest. Jackie’s defense? It was the Ambien. Jackie’s lawyer told TMZ, "We have letters and reports from Jackie's doctors which prove a long history of insomnia and which strongly support our contention that Jackie was driving unconscious after taking Ambien, which had been prescribed to her. I reached out to the DA's office weeks ago and was assured that deputies would review our reports before filing charges. We are extremely disappointed that the DA's office filed these charges without reviewing our evidence, as promised."
Warner hit a pole, blew a .08, and backed her car into a police vehicle. All while not wearing pants. So yeah, Ambien. Who knew?
Melissa Etheridge Smokes Weed With Her Kids And That’s Just Fine
Melissa Etheridge loves weed more than Wiz Khalifa and I am here for it. In an interview with Access Hollywood—and just in time for stoner Christmas 420—Etheridge defended her choice to smoke weed with her adult children. “You know, my kids grew up in Southern California. It’s not a crazy thing. It was a decision, it’s not something I do a lot at all—hardly! I want people to understand that this is not ‘Hey kids, let’s go get high!’ That wasn’t what it is at all. It was an experience that was kind of family and sacred. And so … having the whole world kind of judge it off of one sentence, it breaks my heart a little bit. And beyond judging my mothering, I wish the discussion could be about people spending time in prison whose lives have completely been wrecked because of possession.”
Go Melissa. Marijuana may be illegal in most states, but it causes 99% less death, violence, and destruction than legal vices alcohol and cigarettes. Anyone who drinks with their children has no place to judge Melissa for smoking up with her adult kids.
Marvel Straight-Washes Queer Female Character
Marvel invited a select group of reporters to preview their upcoming films, including the all black superhero romp Black Panther. A journalist for Variety noted that “We see Gurira’s Okoye and Kasumba’s Ayo swaying rhythmically back in formation with the rest of their team. Okoye eyes Ayo flirtatiously for a long time as the camera pans in on them. Eventually, she says, appreciatively and appraisingly, “You look good.” Ayo responds in kind. Okoye grins and replies, “I know.”
This makes sense because in the comic books, Ayo and Aneka fall in love with one another before leading a feminist uprising. However, shortly after Variety published this observation, Marvel reached out and stated “The nature of the relationship between Danai Gurira’s Okoye and Florence Kasumba’s Ayo in Black Panther is not a romantic one.”
Let’s clarify: Marvel took two canon queer female characters and removed their romance from the film, thus rendering them effectively straight. What the actual fuck. I guess Marvel is dedicated to the sanctity of original comics, except when it comes to a lesbian character. Then her gayness is eliminated. It’s rare that a comic book character is gay, much less a lesbian, and it’s vastly disappointing that Marvel would GO OUT OF THEIR WAY to remove lesbian representation from a major Hollywood film. This is rewriting a female character’s assigned sexuality with zero explanation or purpose. It’s lesbophobia and homophobia. Pure and simple. Think about it: how many times have you heard a straight character can’t be LGBTQ for a movie or TV show because “it’s not true to the original story” or “that’s just not who they are.” Yet Marvel has no problem with making a lesbian character straight. This is an act of discrimination.
