Are you looking for another way to survive The Real L Word? Well, don’t worry; Ilene Chaiken, benevolent benefactor of lesbians everywhere, anticipated your need! The Domenico Winery in San Carlos, California is now selling three different TRLW wines! (And no I am not making that up!) I can’t outdo Queerty on this one:
You know what I love? Superheroes. You know what makes a superhero a superhero? Using your power for good. So cheers to Iceland’s Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir, who ushered in a marriage equality bill — without a single dissenting vote — then married her partner, writer Jonina Leosdottir, over the weekend. (Meanwhile, in America, people still can’t stop talking about Elena Kagan’s haircut. Oh, and Twilight — they discussed that at her Supreme Court confirmation hearing this morning, as well.)
It’s that time of year again — networks are rolling out their fall TV schedules. Today, CW announced that Hellcats’ lesbian cheerleader will make her debut on September 8th at 9pm (right after the launch of the 192nd cycle of ANTM). Gossip Girl, 90210, Life Unexpected and the new Nikita will premiere the following week. (GG is going to overlap with Pretty Little Liars. Can you even handle it?)
Can you handle this: Starz has cancelled Party Down. Poor Rob Thomas is just never going to learn that you can’t make good TV and expect to stay on the air. (I’m barely joking.)
How do you feel about it, Chuck Klosterman?
AfterEllen.com reader and intrepid detective Stephanie I let us know that there’s a new bisexual house guest on this season of American Big Brother. I’m serious about the intrepid detective part. This is some of the best investigative journalism I’ve ever seen:
Stephanie I, please accept this slow golf clap as a token of my appreciation for your stalker skills hard work.
Glee fans, if you’re not already on overload with your Glee karaoke machines and your Glee novels and your Glee albums and your Glee-shaped pasta, here’s something else to get excited about: Oxygen has option the syndication rights for the show (to begin airing in 2011) and they’re developing a Glee reality series. Is there too much of a good thing? Uh huh. But man, I love those BBC Search for the next Maria/Joseph/Dorothy shows.
You know who else deserves some accolades this afternoon? AfterEllen.com reader El Canguro Rojo who told us to hold the phone because her day just got awesome!
Dennis at AfterElton.com wrote an article that’s terrifying article in the creepiest of sci-fi ways. In Florida, Dr. Maria New is “treating” babies for lesbianism inside their mother’s wombs.
Serious props to Dennis for shedding light on this atrocity. Give the whole article a read at AfterElton.com.
