Morning Brew – Thursday, January 6: A new bisexual “Bad Girl,” Leisha Hailey in a horror film with another familiar face

Good morning!

A website called eCanadanow.com is reporting “Queen Latifah Comes Out as a Lesbian.” However, it’s not true, at least not yet. They write:

Word is now that Latifah is set to come out of the closet and announced that she is indeed a lesbian and will also announce that she plans on getting married to her unnamed girlfriend.

So it’s either wishful thinking, or eCanadanow.com knows someone close to the Queen. Which seems more likely?

Amber Heard drives a mustang, and it apparently gets stolen (and returned) all the time. She told The Daily Mail:

I’ve had my Mustang for six years; it’s in the shop right now because it was stolen — it gets stolen a lot. I park it on the street for one minute and someone takes it for a joyride but they always recover it. I just have to do the maintenance and repair the damage. My dad taught me enough about cars so that I’d never have to ask a man on the side of the road for help: I hotwire my own cars.

You love her even more now, don’t you? So stop stealing her car.

Do you know what Suze Orman needs? Another TV show. Oprah thinks so, too. Suze will be host of Money Class, a new show on OWN that will premiere next fall. The description:

The series will feature Orman as she goes into the lives of families, couples and individuals around the country, sets attainable goals and tasks them with specific challenges to impart the ability to make responsible and well-informed decisions. The end goal is for the participants to let go of the past and move toward a more secure financial future.

There have to be some lesbian homes she can visit! If you’re a financial mess, invite Suze over.

OWN has another lesbian on staff: Michelle Pollino. The out filmmaker is the producer of Searching For, a show about finding lost family members. She told Phillymag.com about her work, which also includes an upcoming ABC Family film, Mayor Cupcake.

A new documentary called Lead With Love is available to watch online for free. It’s about parents who recently learned their children were gay, lesbian, bisexual, etc. Send it to someone that might appreciate it.

Leisha Hailey is in an upcoming horror film called Fertile Ground. Why I like this movie already: She plays the wife of Gale Harold (aka Brian Kinney from Queer as Folk). This is a match made in gay Showtime veteran Heaven. Here’s the description:

Emily (Hailey) and Nate Weaver (Harold) leave the city for the rural comfort of Nate’s ancestral home in New Hampshire. There, isolated and haunted by inexplicable noises and horrifying visions, Emily learns she’s pregnant while Nate is possessed by the homicidal spirit of his forbearers. In a house haunted by past victims, Emily learns that she’s the latest target in a murderous tradition.

Check out this cool making-of video, too.

Yikes! Sounds like it’ll be a little scary. No release date yet, but I’ll keep you posted.

Freja Beha Erichsen is on the cover of Italian Vogue this month, and she’s looking quite Frida-esque.


The new season of Bad Girls Club starts on Jan. 10, and we have a new bisexual bad girl in the house named Sydney. She loves Megan Fox, the color purple and “Jenna Jameson’s sexy a$$.”
