Out TV producer Ali Adler has sold a new pilot to ABC. The untitled divorce comedy is about “the dirty little secret of those days and nights when your ex has the kids. You get to drink too much and binge-watch Breaking Bad without checking homework or giving baths — it’s about the silver lining of divorce.” There’s probably some inspiration from real life in there. No word on if lesbian characters will be involved.
E! Online reports that Amber Tamblyn‘s “womanizing” lesbian character will have a one-night stand on an upcoming episode of Two and a Half Men, the same night Alan does: “There will be one morning where both of their dates are going to do the walk of shame out of the beach house together.” I can’t wait to see all the girls cast to play Amber’s love interests.
Looks like Samantha Ronson recently had a great time with Ellen Pompeo.
The Wall Street Journal interviewed Julie Maroh, the writer and artist behind Blue is the Warmest Color. My favorite quote:

Speaking of Kim Ann Foxman, the out DJ/musician posed for ADIDAS and Stan Smith.
UK field hockey stars Helen Richardson and Kate Walsh are getting married. I don’t like how the BBC puts “marry” in quotations, but I guess it’s their distinction since it isn’t legal where they live. Nonetheless, the couple has been together for five years and they are super adorable. Congrats ladies!
Heather Hogan sent me this rad piece from the Comics Alliance about why DC is cray for not letting Batwoman be happy and get married herself. An excerpt:
The Breeders‘ Josephine Wiggs put together this teaser for the new Luscious Jackson album, Show Us What You Got. It certainly is a tease!

Michigan, please stop embarrassing me.
Cynthia Nixon and Wanda Sykes have joined the cast of Amazon’s new series Alpha House. Cynthia will play “Sen. Carly Armiston, a formidable, confident, Democratic senator from New York,” while Wanda is “Sen. Rosalyn DuPeche, a strong-willed and funny Democrat who happens to be a neighbor of the male senators.” Also part of the fun are Amy Sedaris and Julie White (!!!!) This is going to be some must-watch shit.
