Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (May 2, 2008)

 
 

IS THIS A STRATEGY FOR TOPPING THE HOT 100 AGAIN?
Last year’s No. 1 hottie, Leisha Hailey, has been keeping herself mighty busy these days, even though filming on the next season of The L Word doesn’t begin till later this summer. This week Olivia announced that Leisha will be their new spokesperson, which means she’ll be featured in their advertising as well as on some of their vacation packages, where she’ll also perform as a musician with with her band, Uh Huh Her.

Olivia General Manager Lisa Henderson stated in a press release: “Leisha is deservedly the out ‘it girl’ today and appeals to a broad spectrum of women, especially those in the lesbian community. It was important to us to work with an individual who reinforces Olivia’s entertainment value as well as being hip, fun and approachable.”

“I am excited to be part of the Olivia family," Hailey stated in the press release, "and to have the opportunity to introduce Olivia to women who may not be familiar with the entertainment or travel aspect of Olivia."

Although Uh Huh Her’s debut CD, Common Reaction, won’t be released until Aug. 19, 2008 (the CD has been delayed by a few months), you can still listen to some new tracks on their MySpace and official site.

And if you’re a big UHH fan, have we got some great news for you! Leisha and bandmate Camila Grey are currently on tour in the U.S. and Canada, and AfterEllen.com is bringing you an opportunity to catch a show and meet the girls.
