There is some serious drama-rama over at the Lifetime Liz & Dick set.

The film’s executive producer Larry A. Thompson dished on working with out actress Lindsay Lohan during an interview with the Hollywood

Reporter
.

Two years ago Sizzler patron Liza Friedlander was viciously attacked

by the restaurant’s staff at their Queens, New York location for being

gay. Good news, a New York judge has awarded Friedlander $25,000,

citing the restaurant violated state law by allowing her to be

discriminated against.

Friedlander said, “I was attacked and threatened by people yelling

terrible anti-LGBT slurs, throwing things at me and threatening to

sexually assault me. On that day, I felt helpless, humiliated and

frightened, but today I’m so proud that I stood up and did something

about it. No one should have to go through a nightmare like that.”

After Friedlander’s victory, the staff attorney for Lambda Legal,

Natalie Chin, who repped Friedlander issued a statement saying,

“Businesses are not exempt from treating LGBT people with dignity and

respect.”

Singer Carrie Underwood recently announced her support for marriage equality and, as a result, was treated to a slew of anti-gay tweets. Today GLAAD launched a #SupportCarrie campaign on Twitter. GLAAD is asking that we all show our support by tweeting to Carrie (@carrieunderwood) using #supportcarrie. 

On a lighter note, get ready for Ice Age 4: Continental Drift starring

Queen Latifah, Heather Morris and Wanda Sykes.

Ultra-conservative Michigan mayor Janice Daniels shared her whacked

out opinion that the dangers of the “homosexual lifestyle” are akin to

the dangers of smoking cigarettes
. Really? I thought homosexuality caused happiness while cigarettes caused lung cancer.

Rumor has it The Avengers three-hour director’s cut might be heading

to the big screen. Will you go see the director’s cut if it is

released in theaters? With Scarlett Johansson on the bill, I have a

feeling my wife will be dragging me to see this flick whether I want to or

not.
