LESBIAN-ISH QUOTE OF THE WEEK NO. 2
"I have been made aware of [my female following] over the years, particularly around my Buffy years … I remember a lot of people leaning to Faith and Buffy having this deep down love for one another … I have a lot of lesbian-love fans out there, and a lot of gay men who still do cheers in supermarkets from Bring It On.”

LOVERS AND THERAPISTS
Out actresses Jill Bennett (Dante’s Cove) and Cathy DeBuono (Out at the Wedding) are starring in a new web series launching tomorrow called We Have to Stop Now, which follows "two smokin’ hot lesbian therapists as they struggle to keep up the pretence of staying together when a documentary film crew invades their home after the success of their book How To Succeed In Marriage Without Even Trying."
New installments of the six-episode series — which is written by Ann Noble and guest stars comedian Suzanne Westenhofer — will be posted every other Saturday on Jill’s official website JillBennett.com, with additional footage running on alternate Saturdays.
Also look for Jill to guest on this week’s episode of Cherry Bomb later today.
In other web series news, the popular web series Lovers & Friends has just posted a fifth episode, which answers several questions, including "Is Sasha gonna marry James? Will Tori and Christina’s romance heat up? Is Dre’s doggish ways gonna get her in trouble? Where is Lisa?"
Sadly for viewers, the episodes does not answer the question, "Where can I find cute single women like this in my neighborhood?" Watch the episode here.
