Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (May 18, 2007)

Bravo has unveiled the contestants for the third season of its popular cooking
reality series Top
, set in Miami this time, and out lesbian Miami Beach chef Sandee
Birdsong is among the chosen few.

Here’s her official bio for the show:

A Georgia native, Sandee specializes in southern soul food. Her signature
dish is grilled hamachi collar with southern collard greens and soy sherry
reduction with jalapeño corn bread. Enough said. Not a chef by trade,
Sandee never attended Culinary School and has only worked at Tantra, a hot
South Beach restaurant. Hired as a line cook, she has worked hard and studied
just about every book around to become the Executive Chef. Since taking over
the kitchen at Tantra, she has received 3-stars and rave reviews. Strong and
independent, she is not a pushover. Sandee is aware that everyone will underestimate
her, but she is adamant that while her opponents are playing it safe, she
will work harder because she doesn’t know any other way. Sandee says,
“Dream as if you’ll live forever, and live as if you’ll
die today.”

Looks like the "P.S. She’s gay" got cut for brevity. But then, I
guess her hair already says that.

The new season premieres on Wednesday, June 13 at 10:00 p.m.

Remember the classic ’80s lesbian movie Desert

Malinda interviewed director Donna Deitch last week for a longer piece we’ll
run in a few weeks, and Donna revealed that she’s making a sequel:

It’s actually going to happen. It’s going to be some time later, and it’s
going to not simply be about these characters, it’s going to expand into new
characters as well. I envision actually more than one Desert Hearts
sequel, ’cause I’m thinking of making several of them. Since this one was
in the late ’50s, I have some room to move around here, right? And I think
it’s time for me to get off my day job and get on with doing this because
I can see several sequels. That’s kind of how I’m envisioning it, but at the
moment I’m just writing the next one. The original actors will be in it, but
the sequel is not meant to simply follow those two characters. It’s going
to have an organic branching out into the era and geographical location in
which it’s going to be set

Sounds interesting, as long as we don’t go too far into the future and have
Vivian cheating on Kay with Battlestar Galactica‘s Starbuck. You know
she would so be Vivian’s type.
