Afternoon Delight: “Pariah” up for Gotham awards, Paula Patton the latest CoverGirl Ambassador

Good afternoon!

Happy birthday to Happy Endings actress Casey Wilson and model/singer Tila Tequila .

The lovely Noomi Rapace (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) shines in the latest trailer for Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. (It would be even better if Rapace were in a few more scenes, like, all of them.)

Congratulations to actress Paula Patton, who has been named the New Ambassador of the CoverGirl Queen Collection.

Patton joins fellow CoverGirls Queen Latifah, Taylor Swift, Sofia Vergara, Drew Barrymore and Ellen DeGeneres.

Speaking of DeGeneres, as the holidays approach, consider giving your loved ones Ellen Boy Shorts Underwear. “The Ellen Boy Shorts Underwear offers the perfect balance of comfort and style for your booty. They feature a super plush waist band and are made of 95% cotton and 5% spandex.”

Tonight Glee’s Jane Lynch will reprise her therapist role on CBS’s Two and A Half Men. And while we’re talking about Jane, a blogger from the LA Times wants the six-foot tall comedian to design a line of Coach Sue Sylvester tracksuits. Personally, I think it’s a great idea!

Tonight, actress Naomi Watts (Mulholland Drive) will stop by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and Wednesday, October 26 out actress Amber Heard will appear on Last Call With Carson Daly.

The 25-year-old Heard rocked the red carpet at the Signorina fragrance launch party in Moscow, Russia. She strutted her stuff in a super sexy backless Salvatore Ferragamo gown. I hope she didn’t catch a chill.

Grey’s Anatomy star Jessica Capshaw sat down with TVLine to answer a few fan questions about Calzona, scary movies and crying on set — all while giggling like an angel. (Do angels giggle?)

The lesbian drama Pariah is raking in more award nominations. The film is up for Gotham’s Audience Award and director Dee Rees has been nominated for Best Breakthrough Director. The public will vote in the first round for the audience award and the top five films that receive the most votes will advance to the second round. Director Maryam Keshavarz’s film Circumstance has also nominated for the audience award. Can they both win first place?

First time director and screenwriter Angelina Jolie’s has released the first trailer for her passion piece In The Land of Blood and Honey.

Congratulations to comic Aisha Tyler, who has been hired to co-host The Talk. Tyler will join the panel with Julie Chen, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood and out actress Sara Gilbert.

Out artists God-Des and She headlined this year’s Austin Pride 2011. During the event the ladies sat down for an interview and while the sound quality is a little spotty in this video, it’s worth watching.

Cuban Italian American lesbian comedian Mimi Gonzalez is heading to the Comedy Zone in Appleton, WI from November 2-5.  If you live in the area, do yourself a favor and check out Gonzalez live.
