Afternoon Delight: The first look at Amber Heard in “The Playboy Club” and a “South of Nowhere” wedding

Good afternoon!

Happy birthday, Megan Fox! The bisexual actress turns 25 today.

Congratulations to AfterEllen.com’s managing editor Trish Bendix who got hitched over the weekend! I wish Trish and her wife, Julie, a very long and happy life together. Love and marriage must be in the air because South of Nowhere’s Mandy Musgrave and Matt Cohen are also tying the knot this week. Cowgirl Up producer Nancylee Myatt will be attending the big event and posted this lovely comment on her Facebook page:

Heading to FL tomorrow for the wedding of our adopted kids, Matt Cohen & Mandy Musgrave. They met on South of Nowhere, a show I was lucky enough to be writing & producing. M&M are generous, loving & truly talented. I’d like to thank their parents for doing all the heavy lifting so I can now jump in now and reap the benefits. Pop the champagne!!”

Congratulations to the extremely attractive couple!

Jane Lynch was honored in Florida this weekend. The Glee scene-stealer helped raise $40K for Palmetto High School’s rowing team. Back in February Lynch and her wife, Lara Embry, donated $15,000 to the fledgling rowing team. All profits made from the event’s brunch and auction goes towards the purchase of rowing equipment for the team.

Tonight, out comedian Fortune Feimster will be on E’s Chelsea Lately’s round table. Tune in to see which vest she’ll wear. Iron Chef Cat Cora will stop by ABC’s The View on Wednesday May 18th with special guest host Tyra Banks. Cora and Banks together? Christmas has come early this year!

The Hollywood Reporter confirms Angelina Jolie’s directing debut will hit theaters in the US on December 23. The film titled In The Land Of Blood And Honey was written by Jolie and is set against the backdrop of the Bosnian War in the 1990s. Sounds like a holiday movie to me! In a statement Jolie said, “The film is specific to the Bosnian War, but it’s also universal. I wanted to tell a story of how human relationships and behavior are deeply affected by living in side a war.” For all you Jolie fans I’m sorry to say that the Lara Croft actress will not appear in the film. Will you go see the movie anyway?

Tegan and Sara will be performing at the Saskatchewan Jazz Festival on July 3rd in Saskatoon, SK Canada. The musical duo will also be stopping by the smallest US state, Rhode Island, to perform at the Fort Adams state park on July 30th.

Wanda Sykes will be performing this Saturday, May 21st at the Long Beach Terrace Theater.

 

Congratulations to CNN news anchor Don Lemon for coming out of the closet and declaring his gaydom to the world. Visibility matters!
