It’s Friday; we made it!
Nothing like starting off your morning with a hot cup of coffee and the first Emmy promo featuring Jane Lynch looking like a goddess.
I am so, so glad to see that she’s not wearing her Sue Sylvester tracksuit.
Speaking of Emmys and visibility, TVLine.com is reporting that Kalinda is going to get a new spouse on this season on The Good Wife — a work spouse, that is. Says executive producer Robert King:
As you probably know by now, a Facebook petition calling for Bert and Ernie’s marriage on Sesame Street has been making the rounds on the internet. But yesterday the show stepped in to say that while Bert and Ernie are lifelong best friends, they’re puppets; therefore, they don’t have a sexual orientation. So no, they won’t be getting married.
Tell that to Avenue Q’s Rod and Rickey who were married in New York the first day same-sex couples were allowed to wed!
For a show that hasn’t even aired its pilot episode yet, people sure to have a lot to say about Amber Heard’s The Playboy Club. When New York Magazine asked The Good Wife’s Christine Baranski about sexism in Hollywood, she went right for The Playboy Club and the forthcoming stewardess drama Pan-Am:
I’m actually really interested to see how our staff and readers are going to respond to The Playboy Club once we see it. I have a suspicion that most of us are only willing to give it a go because Amber Heard is in it. I could be wrong, of course. It’s happened once or twice.
Now let’s kick off your weekend off with some super good news. Remember the all-women comic book anthology I told you about last week? Womanthology? They were trying to raise $25,000 to create a female-written, female-drawn, female-lettered, and female-colored book of female heroes. Well, guess what? They raised four times that much, bringing in $109,000 for their project. The surplus funds raised “will go towards other projects and initiatives to help nurture and support women and girls breaking into the comic book industry.”
Are you listening, Marvel and D.C.?
Have a gorgeous weekend. The lovely Trish Bendix will be back with you on Monday.
