Yesterday was Frida Kahlo‘s birthday. The legendary bisexual artist was celebrated in this month’s German Vogue, as Claudia Schiffer donned the famous unibrow to pose as Frida for a photospread. Pretty convincing!
This month’s issue of Diva magazine has a familiar face on the cover.
The cool thing about the interview with Ms. Beals is that it was with Rachel Shelley. Yes, Helena interviewed Bette and Tina wasn’t brought into it. An excerpt from the story written by Shelley:
Anyone up for giving a tutorial? You can get the issue on stands July 8.

Outfest is getting underway in Los Angeles this week, and one of the highlights will be a panel called “Coming Out in Hollywood” featuring Meredith Baxter, publicist Howard Bragman and other “industry insiders.” Bragman told The L.A. Times:
Such a great idea. I hope it’s a success! The panel is July 17 as part of the film fest.

Cop drama The Bridge is playing on Canada’s Sony Channel and it stars Inga Cadranell as a hard working officer named Jill. Inga says of her character:
CBS will be airing the series in America on July 10 — aka this weekend. A bisexual cop on TV — someone is listening to our prayers!
Meanwhile, The Atlantic thinks Saffron Burrows isn’t working out on Law & Order: Criminal Intent. In short, they believe her character is too high brow for police work. Fine — give her a new spinoff with Mariska Hargitay: Law & Order: Roommates. I’d watch it!
Last night on Chelsea Lately, Chelsea Handler had a request for guest Pharell Williams.
Chelsea’s lesbian stylist has pretty good taste in men, I have to say. That baby would be stylin’! I bet his sperm is expensive, though.
Do you miss Jessica Clark already? Here she is at New York Pride with gay women on hand.
Corrie Street fans, Sophie and Sian will be returning July 16 and it looks like the drama will start right up again! Click the link only if you want a spoiler.
I love how incestuous the soaps all are. Perhaps Eden and Liz will get a chance to romance again!
She also says she enjoys spending all her free time with her partner and daughter. Did I mention her non-free time is spent with Kate Winslet? Rough life.
TheFabLife.com has a feature on actors who play actors on TV, but don’t have as much star quality as the people they play. Among them is Sarah Paulson for her role on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. Remember that show? R.I.P.
Lastly, did you catch Suze Orman on The D List last night? She was hilarious with Maggie Griffin. Yes, she was wearing a fierce blazer, per usual. Here’s how Kathy feels about Suze.
And with that, have a nice Hump Day!
