There is some serious drama-rama over at the Lifetime Liz & Dick set.
The film’s executive producer Larry A. Thompson dished on working with out actress Lindsay Lohan during an interview with the Hollywood
Reporter
.

Two years ago Sizzler patron Liza Friedlander was viciously attacked
by the restaurant’s staff at their Queens, New York location for being
gay. Good news, a New York judge has awarded Friedlander $25,000,
citing the restaurant violated state law by allowing her to be
discriminated against.

Friedlander said, “I was attacked and threatened by people yelling
terrible anti-LGBT slurs, throwing things at me and threatening to
sexually assault me. On that day, I felt helpless, humiliated and
frightened, but today I’m so proud that I stood up and did something
about it. No one should have to go through a nightmare like that.”
After Friedlander’s victory, the staff attorney for Lambda Legal,
Natalie Chin, who repped Friedlander issued a statement saying,
“Businesses are not exempt from treating LGBT people with dignity and
respect.”

Singer Carrie Underwood recently announced her support for marriage equality and, as a result, was treated to a slew of anti-gay tweets. Today GLAAD launched a #SupportCarrie campaign on Twitter. GLAAD is asking that we all show our support by tweeting to Carrie (@carrieunderwood) using #supportcarrie. 

On a lighter note, get ready for Ice Age 4: Continental Drift starring
Queen Latifah, Heather Morris and Wanda Sykes.

Ultra-conservative Michigan mayor Janice Daniels shared her whacked
out opinion that the dangers of the “homosexual lifestyle” are akin to
the dangers of smoking cigarettes
. Really? I thought homosexuality caused happiness while cigarettes caused lung cancer.

Rumor has it The Avengers three-hour director’s cut might be heading
to the big screen. Will you go see the director’s cut if it is
released in theaters? With Scarlett Johansson on the bill, I have a
feeling my wife will be dragging me to see this flick whether I want to or
not.
