Morning Brew – Friday, May 18: Brooklyn Decker had the hots for Rihanna while filming “Battleship,” Crystal Chappell makes her debut on “The Bold and the Beautiful”

It’s Friday! We made it! Battleship — officially known in my house as Tim Riggins Saves the Sea — opens today, and when Brooklyn Decker was making the press rounds earlier this week, she let it slip to Chelsea Lately that she developed some lady feelings for co-star Rihanna during filming. 

I love women. I find them very sexy and attractive and beautiful, but I’ve never been — you know, I like guys. I do. But when you’re around Rihanna, you’re like, “Oh! OK! I get it! I’ve never felt this way before! I understand!” Like, she has something.

Something like an invitation to your pants party, Decker?

Crystal Chappell made her debut on The Bold and the Beautiful yesterday as Dani, the secret wife of Karen Spencer and secret mom of Caroline Spencer. When Trish Bendix returns home from honeymooning in Maui, she’ll be recapping B&B for us, but here’s a mini-cap of everything you need to know about the lesbi-backstory and Chappell’s first day on-screen:

Lip Service is all new tonight with the penultimate episode of series two, and BBC3 has released some promo images from the episode.

So f–k buddies are still a thing that is happening!

Thanks to AfterEllen reader Chrissy D, we’ve learned that South African soap Isidingo has introduced a lesbian storyline. According to Chrissy:

The character of Charlie Holmes is a series regular. She is played by the actress Jay Anstey. Charlie’s father is not too happy about his daughter’s love interest, which is a girl called Suzie. I think it’s great that a storyline like this is being shown considering that the LGBT community is holding protests around the country to stop the proposal of removing sexual orientation protection from the constitution.

Awesome, awesome, awesome.

That’s all for me for today. Trish Bendix will be back on Monday with her superior Brew-ing skills! Have a wonderful weekend!
