Afternoon Delight: Wanda Sykes plays favorites on “Jimmy Kimmell Live” and “The Real L Word” is back

Good afternoon!

Every morning I wake up, pour myself a large cup of coffee and read the Morning Brew. Whilst reading today’s column, I ended up watching the featured ABC’s What Would You Do? video, in which actors pretended to be discriminated against for being gay in a Texas restaurant. (Don’t worry the patrons saved the day.) If you need a pick me up, watch the video and I dare you not to tear up.

Now on with the show!

Happy birthday to All The Kings Men performer Maria Kogan! The popular all female drag troupe is a staple at Provincetown, MA and will be performing this weekend (May 27-29) for three show’s only at the Art House.  If you live in the area, do yourself a favor and check them out.

Also, a very happy belated birthday to The L Word’s Laurel Holloman, who turned 40 yesterday. (I’m kicking myself for forgetting her big day.) And congratulations to Holloman for making the AfterEllen.com 2011 Hot 100 list. Hubba hubba!

Speaking of The L Word and our Hot 100 list, the one and only Shane McCutcheon (aka Kate Moennig) tweeted her response to the results we posted yesterday.

The L Word might be long gone but The Real L Word is back! The infamous Showtime series kicks of its second season with an almost all new cast and the returning Whitney Mixter (and her harem). The show’s creator Ilene Chaiken has said, “This season we’re constantly surprised and delighted and appalled by some of the things we see happening.”

Check out the antics of the new cast in the video below. I think the show’s title should be changed to High Heels, Tattoos and Dreads.

Season 2 of The Real L Word premieres Sunday, June 5 at 10 PM on Showtime.

The hilarious Julie Goldman (The Big Gay Sketch Show) will be performing this Friday, May 27 in Florida in honor of Pensacola Women’s Week. Advance tickets are $15 or $20 at the door.

People magazine reports that Lindsay Lohan is also in Florida for a Plum Magazine photo shoot in Miami. Does that mean she’s posing with fruit? Either way, I can’t wait to see the pictures!

Deadline.com is reporting that out Glee star Jane Lynch is Fox’s top pick for hosting the Emmys this year. We’ll let you know if Lynch gets the job!

Montréal Tourism is holding their annual Queer of the Year competition! They are searching throughout North America for this year’s "Brightest Star Under The Rainbow."
