Morning Brew: Wednesday, March 3

 
 

Good morning! Did know you can get married in D.C. today?

Last night on The Good Wife, Kalinda finally felt the touch of a woman’s hand. She was invited to dinner with a federal agent, who then tried to convince her to to come work for the FBI. Or, as she says, “Work under her.”

The agent placed her hand on Kalinda’s, who let it linger for a few minutes before she declined the offer and moved her hand. She likes working for Julianna Margulies.

Damn those power lesbians, always trying to use sex to win you over. At least Kalinda didn’t walk out and tell the waiter “I wouldn’t go in there if I were you.”

This year’s The LA Gay & Lesbian Center’s 2010 “An Evening with Women” will feature Linda Perry, Renée Zellweger and Gina Gershon with a musical performance from Heart. The event will happen May 1 in the International Ballroom of the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Snag your ticket for $300.

90210 returns to the CW next week on March 9, complete with the lesbian storyline. Jessica Lowndes told People that her character, Adrianna, is going to share a “special bond” with Gia. “My character starts questioning whether or not sexuality is measured on a spectrum, if it’s black and white or if it comes down to who you connect with and who you are compatible with,” she said. “I’m excited as an actress to tell the story.”

But my favorite new bit of news from the 90210 camp? Gia is going to convince Adrianna to “try out for the lead singer position in The Glorious Steinems, and all-girl band at West Beverly.” With a name like that, how can you be straight go wrong?

Lemondrop.com has a piece on “What it’s like to be with a girl.” I’m not saying any of you need to read this, just putting it out there.

A new fake fake reality show, Bump+, is an experiment of sorts — a “choose your own adventure”-esque narrative following four characters who are dealing with unintended pregnancies. It’s controversial, of course, because it deals with abortion and the current legislation that surrounds reproductive health. Lauren Holiday plays a nurse on Bump+ and says, “I’m pro-choice to me it’s really an issue of privacy. … So I’m surprised that people feel like they can weigh in on somebody’s personal decisions, it’s almost a throw back to the old days when women were property.”
