Afternoon Delight: Lifetime plans a Lady Gaga biopic, Naya Rivera on the cover of “FHM”

 
 

Good afternoon!

Happy birthday to Kate Winslet! The 36-year old Academy Award-winning actress starred in the lesbian cult classic Heavenly Creatures, which scared the crap out of me.

Bend it Like Beckham actress Parminder Nagra is also celebrating her 36th birthday today.

Speaking of Winslet, check out the exclusive clip “What They Were Arguing About” from her upcoming film Carnage starring Jodie Foster. The dramedy will be released in the US on December 16.

A reporter over at The Wrap had a candid conversation with Chelsea Handler about her numerous shows and being the only woman on late night television.

In an ideal world, out comedian Judy Gold would also have her own late night talk show. She’s brilliant!

As we previously reported, former The Playboy Club star Amber Heard discussed her "successful relationship with a woman" as she rocked the cover of October’s Los Angeles Times magazine. In the issue, Heard dished on her now cancelled NBC show, and since she’s so damn photogenic, I wanted to share two more photos of the out actress. 

Lifetime is aiming to green light Fame Monster: The Lady Gaga Story. The biopic will be based on the unauthorized book Poker Face: The Rise And Rise Of Lady Gaga by Maureen Callahan.  If this project happens, who do you think should play Gaga?

Bisexual blues singer Candye Kane spoke with The Advocate about bisexuals gaining worldwide visibility. Kane said,

Yes, I do think bisexuality has become more mainstream. Part of me is glad for that because it has been hard sometimes being called a fence-sitter by my hardcore lesbian fans and being misunderstood by straight people who think being bisexual means I want to have sex with everyone. I am a true bisexual; I love women and men equally and am proud to love them both. But I choose to do so one relationship at a time. It’s weird how as the LGBT community becomes more visible it has become hip for straight girls to make out. I think that confuses people who are trying to understand what real bisexuality means. It’s not just making out with your best sorority friend at a kegger party. There’s a little bit more to it than that.

Out actresses Nicole Pacent (Anyone But Me) and Shannan Leigh Reeve (Cowgirl Up) have teamed up for the hour-long play I Hate Tommy Finch. The play, which centers around two lifelong friends who come out, will run October 14 thru 16 at Parlour (6341 N. Clark St, Chicago, IL). For more information on this project and the event, head over to ihatetommyfinch.com.

Glee’s Naya Rivera is on the cover of FHM wearing the smallest white panties in the world. You’re welcome!

Speaking of Glee, Coach Beiste (played by Dot Jones) will have a love interest this season and it’s a male football recruiter played by Eric Bruskotter. (I will be fast-forwarding past their love scenes.)

Should South Park be considered a guilty pleasure? I don’t know, and I guess I don’t care. I’m really excited for the 15th season premiere ("Ass Burgers") tonight on Comedy Central at 10 p.m. My favorite character on the show is Big Gay Al, mostly because I like his ascot (though my wife is partial to Stan’s psychotic dad, Randy).

This morning, Cat Cora was the guest DJ on KCRW. What’s on the Iron Chef’s playlist? Aretha Franklin’s "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" and Etta James‘ "At Last." If you missed Cora’s interview, in which she talks about marrying her wife Jennifer, don’t worry. The transcript is available online.

Attention Adele fans! I have some good news and bad news. Let’s start with the bad news first. Due to a vocal cord hemorrhage, Adele has cancelled her U.S. Tour. Sorry, ladies. The good news? Adele has finished writing the theme song for the upcoming James Bond film. Once Adele’s on the mend, she’ll head to the studio to record the song with producer Paul Epworth. Get well soon, Adele!

Lesbian/Bi Photo of the Day:

Politically charged lesbian comedian Kate Clinton (Dubbed “The First Lady of Gay and Lesbian Comedy” by the New York Times) graces the cover of Diversity Rules Magazine. The October issue is available to read online. Enjoy!
