Courtney flirted lightly with Kerry over the last few episodes, then they spent Thanksgiving together, and finally in last night's episode, the two women crossed the line and shared a steamy kiss in Kerry's apartment. And it actually lasted longer than two seconds!
Laura Innes is rumored to be leaving the series soon, so this may be the most this relationship is ever really developed, but it's better than cranky no-love-life Kerry. And between the burgeoning Kerry-Courtney romance, Pratt's gay brother, and Sara Gilbert's recurring role as a caustic nurse, ER is almost gayer than America's Next Top Model these days.
HAND OVER THE LESBIAN KISSING SCENE AND NOBODY GETS HURT
Speaking of Tyra, America's Next Top Model's last lesbian standing, Michelle, was eliminated last week, and her twin sister got the axe in the next episode. In her exit interview with AfterEllen.com, Michelle talked about coming out on the show and then doing a photo shoot where she had to be both Ellen and Portia: "the day after I announced that I might be gay they do the couples shoot, and I happened to be the one with the two girls. At first I was like, 'Oh, good job, production.' I didn’t really care, but I thought it was funny. But it ended up being really cool because Ellen rocks, so it was fine."
I'm just glad they didn't ask her to be Mary Cheney and Heather Poe!
