Last night I finally saw Hit So Hard: The Life and Near Death of Patty Schemel and if you have the opportunity to see it, you must. The doc reminded me that Patty has been out since 1995, when she told Rolling Stone she was gay at the height of Hole‘s career. She’s so bad ass.
The movie showed in Portland as part of the Siren Nation festival, which is happening all weekend and celebrates women musicians and artists. Maybe I’ll see you there this weekend!
A while ago, we told you about the movie Wanderlust, in which Jennifer Aniston has a lesbian threesome with Lauren Ambrose and another woman in the commune she stumbles upon with her husband (Paul Rudd).

During a press junket for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 1 yesterday, Nikki Reed said that she’d been proposed to by a young girl. Apparently she turned her down, but I applaud the girl for asking. Maybe it was Kristen Stewart. She was only 17 or something when the first movie was filmed.

Sounds like she’s up to the same old tricks!
Pretty Little Liars will return to ABC Family on Monday, Jan. 2 at 8 p.m. We’ll remind you as it gets closer, but just so you can pencil it in now.
Want to hear Naya Rivera singing “Santa Baby”? We all know she’s singing to Mrs. Claus.
