Morning Brew – Yvette Monreal definitely coming back for more “Faking It”


Good morning! I hope you’re enjoying the new site. Holler if you have any comments or question: @afterellen.

UK-based food blogger and activist Jack Monroe criticized Prime Minister David Cameron on Twitter, and she was then lambasted by a homophobic Daily Mail column from writer Sarah Vine. Jack’s response was, of course, on Twitter:

Xfinity talked with Carter Covington about last night’s Faking It mid-season finale, and there are two questions you’ll want to know the answers to.

Karma and Amy made up but Karma appears to have some trust issues with Amy and Liam. What will she do to get beyond that?

CC: That’s the challenge. Building trust is never easy. I will say that the next episode will be a flash forward so some time will have passed and the wound won’t be as fresh. The last two episodes of this season were really heavy and emotional and we want to come back with another big, fun premiere to remind people our show may make you cry, but it’s also really damn funny!

What’s next for Amy and Reagan (who I really like!)…will Amy’s friendship/love with/for Karma get in the way?

CC: Reagan is Amy’s first significant relationship and those are always incredibly intense. I absolutely love Yvette Monreal, who plays Reagan. She and Rita have great chemistry. Fans have really embraced the two of them so we’re excited to have her back. As for Karma, all I can say is she and Reagan will bond in a very unexpected way.


Congrats to Arizona’s Karen Bailey and Nelda Majors, who were married after 56 and a half years together!
