Morning Brew – Wed. Aug. 15: A “Real L Word” star’s reality show past, Abby Wambach with a mystery blonde

 
 

Good morning!

During an interview with Perez Hilton, 50 Cent discussed his late mom’s sexuality.

My mom was a lesbian. Yeah, she liked women. My whole childhood was like that. It’s two different things, too — from a female perspective, when you see two females together, you think, “oh, they’re just girlfriends, they’re close.” But, with my mom, the male was missing. So, when you’re that small, that’s all you interpret it as you don’t see anything that would indicate that there’s other things going on. But later, my grandmother — she told me that kiss was a little different from all the other kisses you saw.

I don’t really know what he means with “the male was missing,” but I am hoping 50 is coming to terms with this more. In the past, he’s been kind of an ass about his mom being gay.

Abby Wambach is trying to eat some pizza with a hot blonde when TMZ catches her on camera.

If that is her girlfriend, then I approve!

Jodie Foster penned a piece defending Kristen Stewart but also touches on her own professional/private lives.

I have been an actress since I was 3 years old, 46 years to date. I have no memories of a childhood outside the public eye. I am told people look to me as a success story. Often complete strangers approach me and ask, How have you stayed so normal, so well-adjusted, so private? I usually lie and say, “Just boring I guess.” The truth is, like some curious radioactive mutant, I have invented my own gothic survival tools. I have fashioned rules to control the glaring eyes. Maybe I’ve organized my career choices to allow myself (and the ones I truly love) maximum personal dignity. And yes, I have neurotically adapted to the gladiator sport of celebrity culture, the cruelty of a life lived as a moving target. In my era, through discipline and force of will, you could still manage to reach for a star-powered career and have the authenticity of a private life.

While we’re talking about KStew, she dropped out of the film Cali, but it looks like Amber Heard might take her spot. Amber would play “Maya, who pairs up with her boyfriend Chris to make a fake snuff film which they sell for a wad of cash before beating it out of the San Fernando Valley. Years later, she’s forced to head back to save her younger sister, but to do so she will have to face a bunch of oddball characters as well as keep a handle on her relationship with Chris.” So, probably not gay.

Sadly we lost Anna Pulley from The Hook-Up to her new full-time job at The San Francisco Weekly, but I have some really great news. We have a new advice columnist who is always dolling out the words of wisdom to those who need it most: Alyssa Morgan!

Speaking of The Real L Word, it looks like this season isn’t Amanda Leigh Dunn‘s first reality TV show. She appeared on The CW’s High Society (yeah, no one else watched it either) about New York socialites. Someone who did watch it, though, reviewed her first appearance as such:

A new character made an appearance, someone named Amanda Leigh Dunn sporting a tragic cockadoodle lesbian haircut. Could this be due to the fact that High Society producers are feverishly trying to cast Courtenay Semel, Hollywood lesbian extraordinaire and past reality show victim, I mean, star.

The only other thing I can find about her appearance on the show is that some guy allegedly stole her purse. Riveting TV!

Passion is premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival, which means I’m one step closer to seeing it or living vicariously through someone else who does.

Beth Ditto talked with eMusic and it’s a great read about feminism and the Gossip‘s career.
