Thanks to AfterEllen.com reader Angie we discovered that Animal Planet’s new show, Pit Boss, features a lesbian cast member named Ashley Brooks. Pit Boss follows Shorty Rossi and his employees as they run a talent agency and work to rescue and rehabilitate mistreated pit bulls. They’re a tough team with soft hearts — and all four of them happen to be little people.
According to her bio:
Ashley [Brooks] moved to Los Angeles two years ago to be with her girlfriend, Kacie, whom she met at a Little People of America conference. Kacie is Ashley’s first relationship with another woman. The two met during a job Kacie was doing for Shortywood Productions — Kacie is a stuntwoman and actress. Kacie introduced Ashley to Shorty, and soon Ashley became the newest member at Shortywood Productions in her role as receptionist.
Here’s Animal Planet’s promo for Pit Boss:
You can also check out other videos at their site, including a super cute one called “Meet the Crew” in which Ashley says her mom would get on a plane and fly to LA if she knew where she was working. (Too late! I’ll bet she knows now!)
Pit Boss airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. on Animal Planet. Will you check it out?
