Morning Brew – Tues. June 26: Teen lesbian couple found shot in Texas, Rachel Maddow on “Real Time with Bill Maher”

Morning!

Let’s get this horrible tragedy out of the way: A teen lesbian couple were found shot in Texas. Here’s MSNBC’s report on Mollie Judith Olgin, who passed away, and Mary Christine Chapa, who is in stable condition in the hospital.

Mary, we are pulling for you! And we hope you can remember who did this to you and your girlfriend so they will be punished justly.

India’s new Bollywood sex comedy, Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum, has actresses Sarah-Jane Dias and Neha Sharma “acting like lesbians in love.” These actresses said it took some rehearsing but they finally got it down. Says Neha:

I had to be really sexual in my tone while Sarah had to be seductive. Check out the film and you’ll understand the context of it all! It’s completely mad! This isn’t something that I could see myself doing. However I am happy to have managed it.

Acting like you’re into someone is so hard! Unless, you know, you’re an actor and that’s your job.

The Atlantic has a piece about a lesbian couple who married just days after marriage equality became legal in New York and how they are now trying for a divorce. It’s sad but true — we’re just like straight couples.

Here’s a happier piece on planning a lesbian Jewish wedding from The Frisky.

This piece on “Sex and the Single Mom” is pretty funny, and it’s an interview with a lesbian mom! She bemoans the dating process while having a teenage son. A quote:

Hey, did you hear about the single mom who thought her teenage son wouldn’t be home until later, and then he walked in on her with her newish girlfriend?
Disaster. She tried to tell him they were only napping—without clothes—but her son insisted that she had forever ruined his ability to enjoy lesbian porn.

Boo hoo for him! I’m sure the “lesbians” in the porn he’s watching look exactly like his mom.

I wonder if Zach Wahls has had this problem. He didn’t say when went on Chelsea Lately to talk about his book, Two Moms. Chelsea says she lives with a lesbian and there’s nothing better. Agreed.

Kalinda’s husband has been cast and his name is Marc Warren. He looks kind of like she’d need to sit at the door with a gun while waiting for him. So she’s prepared.
