FROM 40-YEAR OLD VIRGIN TO 11-YEAR-OLD MOTHER
Jane Lynch has joined the untitled mid-season CBS comedy that stars Christine Taylor (Dodgeball, The Brady Bunch) as a successful Hollywood actress who comes from a small town and has a lot of relatives still very involved in her life. Lynch will play her mother. Yes, Lynch is only 11 years older than Taylor. Only in Hollywood.
SEVENTEEN LESBIAN KILLERS (AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE?)
In their November issue, Seventeen magazine has an article about two 15-year-old girls who killed one of the girl's grandparents because they wanted to keep the girls apart. What's the headline? Take a look:
Not "Girls Gone Wild" or "Teen Killers" or even "Killers with Poor Dental Hygiene" but "Lesbian Killers". In Big Red Letters. I'm surprised they didn't include a photo of Sharon Stone holding an ice pick, just to drive the point home.
Seventeen has run positive stories about lesbian and bisexual teens before, so we'll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume someone accidentally let the editor's 15-year-old nephew come up with this title.

Miss Cleo (nee Youree Dell Cleomili Harris), the Jamaican-accented psychic from the famous late-night infomercial with the catchphrase"The cards never lie!", has come out in The Advocate. "I've been afraid of the wrath, of the exile. When I came out to a number of friends in the late '80s, I had a number of friends who turned their backs on me and walked away. That was really intense."
No word yet on whether Miss Cleo will now start pitching her psychic gifts specifically to the LGBT community. Maybe she can tell us what's really going on over at Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
