Morning Brew – Fri. May 25: Beth Ditto on “Watch What Happens Live,” Anne Burrell comes out

Yay, it’s Friday!

Beth Ditto and Adam Lambert were on Watch What Happens Live last night and it was must-see TV. Here are a few clips from the episode.

Beth, I, too, love Lil’ Wayne!

Bisexual actress Olivia Thirlby has been cast in the Jeff Buckley biopic Mystery White Boy. It’s not been confirmed who she will play yet, but Jeff’s last girlfriend, Joan Wasser, is also bisexual. Unfortunately the two don’t look much alike, but that hasn’t stopped directors before.

Carol Leifer is opening for Jerry Seinfeld on his comedy tour. It kicks off on May 31 in East Lansing, Michigan.

Jessie J showed a sliver of leg at the 2012 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS in Cannes. Actually some photos show a little more than a sliver, but I think this one has the look she was going for.

Food Network star Anne Burrell has come out as a lesbian. Well, she was kind of outed, but she has confirmed it is true. The host of Secrets of a Restaurant Chef didn’t necessarily hide her sexuality, but it hadn’t been discussed until another Food Network star, Ted Allen, told Romaine Patterson‘s radio show, “I am not going to put a label on Anne, but she is dating a woman right now.” Anne’s publicist told Page Six:

Anne doesn’t feel she was outed. She has made no secret of her relationship. Her significant other is a very private woman. They have been together for a couple of years and spend a lot of time together. It is no secret in the culinary world.

Jillian Michaels is on the cover of this month’s Women’s Health magazine. In this behind-the-scenes video from the photoshoot, she talks about how she de-stresses, her favorite body part and what she likes to do with her free time.

Melissa Etheridge and Tammy Lynn Michaels have settled their legal dispute. The amount of alimony Tammy will get on a monthly basis was not disclosed, but the two women will split custody of their two children. No word on who got to keep the box of dicks.
