Morning Brew: Trouble for Fimogen on “Degrassi,” Hilarie Burton isn’t returning to “Grey’s,” Margaret Cho talks pansexuality with Wendy Williams


Welcome to Friday, Brewbies! You made it! I don’t know how your week has been, but mine was the kind where I could really use a photo of a pile of kittens and puppies if I’m going to survive until the weekend.

There, that’s better.

All right, let’s do it. Here’s some shipping news for your lezzer hearts. If you want Calzona to be able to work out their stuff on Grey’s Anatomy without the temptation of Dr. Peyton Tree Hill, you’re in luck. (If you were shocked by how much you adored Dr. Peyton, you’re out of luck.) According to TVLine, she’s probably not coming back next season.

I really want Hilarie Burton to come back to Grey’s Anatomy. I find her character a lot more interesting than all the interns combined. Is there any chance she will come back ? –Cris

If you know me at all (raise your hand if you remember the time Hil tried to slow dance with me on the Tree Hill set?), you know it pains me to report that, after snooping around some, I’m seeing no signs (yet) that lustful Dr. Lauren will be back.

Also, there’s trouble brewing for Fimogen on Degrassi. Hollywood Life says Fiona may be taking a trip far, far away forever from her girlfriend.

Degrassi has a storied history of sending its characters off to foreign lands — Darcy (Shenae Grimes) is chillin’ in Kenya, while Mia (Nina Dobrev) is strutting down runways in Paris — and it looks like Fiona might be booking a one-way plane ticket of her own soon. In this preview clip, Fiona’s mom shares some huge news with her daughter that could potentially put thousands” of miles between she and Imogen. Cue the drama.

Hands up if you still remember Alex disappearing into the ether after finally getting Paige to fall in love with her? Oh, Palex. Oh, Fimogen. Oh, Canada.

On The Talk yesterday, Sara Gilbert hinted that she’d like for Miley Cyrus to stop making out with Barbies now.


If I say “Baroness Butler-Sloss of the House of Lords,” do you think I am talking about Julie Andrews‘ nemesis in one of the Princess Diaries movies? Well, I am not. I am talking about an actual woman in the UK’s actual parliament who spent hours and hours yesterday trying to pass an amendment that very specifically requires a penis to enter a vagina for a couple to be declared legally married and/or for infidelity to be declared when a couple gets divorced. If you think this was some antiquated, convulated gay marriage thing, you are correct.

Remember the five-year-old girl who raised $16,000 selling lemonade in front of a Pride-painted house right across the street from Westboro Baptist Church? Here’s the pint-sized hero:

Yes, well, Westboro would like everyone to know that gays are still going to burn in hell along with this kindergartener and not even her delicious old fashioned lemonade will quench your thirst in Satan’s pit!

Margaret Cho dropped by The Wendy Williams Show yesterday to talk about being pansexual, and also about Dancing With the Stars.
