Morning Brew – Mon. April 23: Guinevere Turner on “Lesbian Cops,” Kellie Martin talks “Army Wives”

Good morning and happy birthday to my girl, Mia Jones! May she never look a day over 18.

Here’s our first look at Guinevere Turner with the Lesbian Cops crew. She’s working with SCHLONG and MUFF on Season 2. (Now you have to watch.)

A couple in Wellington, New Zealand says they were asked to leave a bar after kissing goodnight. The bar refutes the claim, saying the women were “lying on the table acting inappropriately.” There’s a huge difference in these two things, but nonetheless, I’d say kicking someone out immediately for the latter is kind of brash anyway.

Kellie Martin talked with Entertainment Weekly about her new lesbian role on Army Wives. It contains a lot of spoilers, but here’s an excerpt:

There’s nothing in your face about it. Army Wives is not getting up on a soap box,. Nicole’s situation is so common, and it’s actually something that people are talking about right now. I like the way [the show] deals with the storyline. The writers were really willing to make her an important character and explore.

It’s funny how you can put Kellie in fatigues and she automatically looks 10 times gayer.

Last week on the Fox series Touch, Saving Face‘s Michelle Krusiec played lesbian Lanny Zheng. In an interview, Michelle described her character:

Lanny is someone who knows what she wants in life but finds herself “touched” and moved by a set of extraordinary circumstances. It’s basically the premise of the show for all of these people whose lives will intersect in magical ways.

On the same episode, out lesbian actress Carlease Burke played Clea’s (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) estranged mother. Here’s a clip of her playing cray cray:

TVLine has some scoop on the series finale of House and it looks like Thirteen will be back for two episodes, but one of them is called “Everybody Dies.” Will she make it to the end, or will her Huntington’s rear its ugly head?

Out drummer Sandra Alva is on the cover of Connextions magazine. I bet she wears her sunglasses at night.
