Morning Brew – Wednesday, Sept. 28: JD Samson in “Vogue Homme,” “The Talk” discusses the Southwest Airlines issue


Good morning! Last night I went to a gay trivia event and our team name was the Leisha Hailey Mile High Experience. We didn’t win, but we didn’t come in last, so that’s not too poor a showing!

Oh shoot, guys. Tia and Tamera Mowry dropped by The Wendy Williams Show and stifled their reactions when it came to Williams asking them if trainer Jeanette Jenkins is Queen Latifah‘s “friend.” The crowd laughed heartily. You can watch it at around the 4:30 mark.

Evan Rachel Wood rocked a hot white on black ensemble at the Ides of March premiere in Beverly Hills last night. Love, love, love the blazer with the corset.

Jen Gatien is one of the producers of Jack & Diane and she spoke with about the film.

That has been an utter joy because that’s a project for which I’ve been with for many years. It’s taken a long time to get made. It’s a lesbian love story, and I feel that the actors involved, Juno Temple and the extraordinary Riley Keough, are going to be revelations. It’s one of the best films I’ve ever been part of.

It’s a look at first love. Whether it’s gay or straight, those feelings still come with first love, of not knowing what’s happening to your body. Physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and being consumed with another person. So I feel the film is just a portrait of two teenage girls who find love for the first time.

Yep, still can’t wait to see it. Or a trailer. Anything!

JD Samson is looking real good in these photos from Vogue Homme. First Jo Calderone, now JD? This magazine is a lesbian’s delight.

While on break from True Blood, Kristin Bauer will be on Once Upon a Time as Maleficent, the evil witch from Sleeping Beauty. The show starts October 23, and I think Kristin will make a perfect evil witch. She already plays one on HBO! (Technically an evil vampire, but you know what I mean.)

I love that Leisha is wearing The L Word shirt. She would never! Speaking of the incident, Sara Gilbert added her two cents on the subject on yesterday’s The Talk, where she used her lesbian phone tree connection to say “I know Leisha and here’s what I can tell you!”


Latina singer/DJ Lisa M came out last year on Facebook and shocked some of her fans. There’s a great interview with her about why she did it (twice!) and how Ricky Martin inspired her.
