Morning Brew – Tuesday, May 31: First photo from Season 2 of “Lip Service,” Julianna Margulies on turning down lesbian role


Today is the last day of May. Boy, did this month fly by! As did this long weekend. Let’s play catch up!

Lindsey Shaw takes questions from fans on her Tumblr and she wrote she’s not only coming back for Season 2 of Pretty Little Liars, but that she thinks Paige and Emily are “a great match,” adding, “but only one way to find out.” Indeed! (Thanks Heather Hogan!)

Speaking of PLL, Shay Mitchell has recorded a PSA about ending slavery in Thailand, which is where she’s lived.

Since that one is kind of sad, I give you this one, with Shay and her castmates.

Conservative columnist Ben Shapiro is accusing Sesame Street of being leftist propaganda. It’s not the only show he discusses, though. He also talked about the lesbian wedding on Friends, saying the show’s co-creator Marta Kauffman cast Newt Gingrich‘s lesbian sister to play the preacher at the wedding “just to annoy conservatives.” From The New York Post:

“When we did the lesbian wedding, we knew there was going to be some flak,” she said, according to Shapiro. “When we cast Candice Gingrich as the minister of that wedding there was a bit of a ‘f- -k you’ in it to the right wing.”

To that I say, good! And f–k you again!

During an Emmy roundtable with TV actresses, Julianna Margulies says she was once offered a role as a “lesbian porn star” — and was “thrilled” — but turned it down because she was just too busy. I wonder if that’s the one that Heather Graham was cast in recently. I wouldn’t mind competing lesbian porn star movies starring these women. But I also love The Good Wife, so I understand Julianna being just too busy.

While we’re on the subject of The Good Wife, TV Without Pity thinks Kalinda only wears one outfit.

Oh. my. god. Is it Lip Service time yet? 2012, so far away. But here’s a pic Tweeted from the official LS account of Frankie and Cat, looking so serious.

Why the long faces, girls?

The Sounds have a new music video for “Dance With the Devil.”

Rumor has it that Kreayshawn, the out MC whose video for “Gucci Gucci” I put in Brew last week and has gone hyper-viral, has signed a million dollar record deal with Sony. Nice!

Nicki Minaj told #5 Magazine she enjoys teasing that she and Rihanna are involved, saying, “I like to give people a great fantasy, so let’s just leave it there.” We surmised as much.

Another day, another Nigerian star refuting lesbian rumors. (Seriously — it happens all the time. I don’t get it!) This time, it’s actress Yvonne Nelson, who told a reporter:

“I am an active member of the Mount Olivet Methodist Church, Dansoman. Lesbianism is against my moral values and everything. I believe in the bible and it is in the bible that lesbianism is not good. This thing happened long ago in Sodom and Gomorrah. It is evil; I can’t see myself doing anything like that. It is quite unfortunate that these guys do get away with these negative stories. But sooner or later, one of us will one day get up and sue somebody.

The only purpose these kinds of stories serve, in my opinion, is knowing whose movies and career I won’t be supporting. Adding Yvonne Nelson to that list!

Today in Lesbianish TV: The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC 9 p.m., midnight, 4 a.m.) and The Voice (NBC 10 p.m.) (Thanks Roni!)

We’ve got tons of great stuff coming up for you today, so don’t go too far!
