Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (March 23, 2007)

 
 

OK, I’LL WATCH THE SHOW, BUT I STILL DON’T WANT TO DO ANYTHING
FOR MYSELF

The Bay Area Reporter has a great new interview
with Jackie Taylor, the star of the DIY (do it yourself) Network’s home improvement
show Grounds
for Improvement
and, apparently, also an out lesbian.

Taylor, whose partner is out director Esther Ritter (HGTV’s Gardening by
the Yard
), spent several years being closeted at work and finally came
out when she "realized that people really didn’t give a s—." She continued: "It just feels
so much better. It’s just so much more freeing to say that this is me and this
is who I am. When I call [the] network and say I’m being interviewed by the
B.A.R. and Jane & Jane and they are like, ‘Cool, that’s
great!’ I’m like, ‘You don’t mind?’ ‘No that’s fine and awesome! We love you!’"

In addition to co-hosting the DIY show, Taylor just released a coffee-table
book on landscaping and is about to launch her own broadband network on May
1 called Oodle Box TV, which will show a series of how-to videos
from a variety of do-it-yourselfers including "tattooed lesbian biker Jackie
Nunes’s how-to videos for fixing up motorcycles." Now that’s my kind of
broadband channel!

THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THEIR BAD REPUTATIONS
Are Carmen Electra and Joan Jett going public with their relationship at Dinah
Shore later this month? That’s what Star Magazine is saying (so you
know it must be true!). An unnamed source tells the magazine they’ve been dating
since before Thanksgiving, shortly after Carmen starred in Joan’s video for
her song "A.C.D.C.," and that "Carmen and Joan are planning on enjoying
all the fun the [Dinah Shore] weekend has to offer, and they’ll be making a
very clear statement to the world by attending together."

Carmen’s rep is already denying
the Star report, telling US Magazine, "They are just friends."
Frankly, I don’t care much one way or the other, though it is amusing to see
how desperate the media is to find a secret lesbian romance to write
about.

SHE SAID DINAH
There’s a new episode of She Said What?
up now with guest rock band Jayne Doe. There won’t be a new episode posted
next week, but we’re going to be filming several more episodes of She
Said What?
on Friday, March 30, at Dinah Shore in Palm Springs,
with guests that include Jane
Lynch
(The L Word, The
40-Year-Old Virgin, Best in Show
), Amanda Bearse (The Big Gay Sketch
Show, Married With Children
), Suzanne
Westenhoefer
, Nancylee
Myatt
and Maeve Quinlan
(South of Nowhere) — and you!
Go to our Dinah page for all the details on when and where
to show up for the heckling taping.

Then don’t forget to come to our party later that night,
where you’ll be asked to do shots and act out the "racy"
motel room scene
between Spencer and Ashley from South
of Nowhere
. BYOHB! (Bring your own hairbrush.)

That’s it for this week! Check back next Friday for
another edition of Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever.
