Morning Brew – Tues. Sept. 4: A lesbian “Dance Mom,” drama on “The Real L Word”


Good morning! I hope you had a nice Labor Day.

The Bold and the Beautiful producer Brad Bell says we’ll definitely see more of Karen and Dani, it just depends on Joanna Johnson‘s schedule over at Emily Owens. M.D.. He told TVGuide:

Joanna will definitely be back, if only for a day or two here and there. And once her schedule backs off a bit I want her back for something meaty. We may not see Karen for the time being but we’ll play her as if she’s still around and that she and Dani are still a happy couple. [Laughs] I’m not going to have Dani go off and seduce one of our guys.


Here’s a great drinking game for you: Take a shot every time the word “Drama” is said on The Real L Word. Or just watch this clip!

Celebrity Big Brother contestant Danica Thrall did lesbian porn when times were tough. I like how there’s a huge emphasis on the fact it was lesbian porn scenes and not just porn.

Alan Ball says that the writers of True Blood had plans for Tara and Pam to hook up all along.

We wanted that to happen from the very beginning of the season, but we wanted to really, really, really take our time with it.

If you missed Dance Moms this past week (I mean, duh), then you might be interested to know that there’s a new lesbian dance mom in town. Kaya and her daughter move to town from St. Louis and it comes out that they left because the other dance moms back home did not agree with her sexuality. The good news is that these dance moms are only concerned about Kaya’s daughter coming in and stealing the spotlight.
