Morning Brew – Friday, August 26: “The Rum Diary” trailer, lesbians in Bollywood film “The Desire”

 
 

It’s Friday, guys! I’m pumped.

The trailer for The Rum Diary been released and Amber Heard looks like she had a great time making this film with Johnny Depp.

The movie hits theaters Oct. 28. I’ll be there!

Rumor has it that Kris Jenner and Sheryl Underwood will be replacing Leah Remini and Holly Robinson-Peete on The Talk. The latter is a radio host that Deadline quotes as referring to herself as “”a sexually progressive God-fearing black Republican.” This should be interesting!

SheKnows.com penned a piece about the internet “outing” of Ellen Page. They want to know if you think we should out celebs or let them stay comfortably in the closet.

There’s only a glimpse of lesbian housewife Angela (Aleksa Palladino) in the new promo for Boardwalk Empire, but it does appear she’s still with Jimmy (Michael Pitt). I wonder if she’s forgotten all about her love of women, or if we’ll see some developments on that end. The new season begins Sept. 25.

Kathy Griffin loves Justin Bieber, and says he has lesbian bangs, although she doesn’t mean that as a negative thing.

A new trailer for Bollywood film The Desire has been released in the US and it has what looks to be a part sexy, part sad lesbian storyline.

The film recently won for Best Narrative at the 2011 Geneva International Film Festival. I desire to see this film.

Idina Menzel Tweeted something Glee fans will get giddy about, if you haven’t already!

Considering she’s not your real daughter, it’s totally fine.

Fiona Shaw has made an It Gets Better PSA and I think it’d be perfect for a drinking game. Take a shot every time she says “bully.”

I learned something important yesterday, guys: Sara Gilbert and Alli Adler are not the first lesbian couple to break up. I know, it’s mindblowing. Thank God E! filled me in.

USA has renewed White Collar for a fourth season. Yay for more Diana! (She’s coming back, right?)

Listen, I know this clip is three months old, but I think you’ll understand why I wanted to share it with you. While Eva Mendes was on Chelsea Lately, she shared that she will only do a threesome with another woman, not two men. It starts at about 4:30. Just because it’s Friday! (BTW, I’m real sorry about the autoplay, but it won’t turn off. Forgive me!)
