Morning Brew – Monday, Feb. 28: Two new lesbian pairings on German TV, Natasha Kai in a Puma commercial


Morning all!

Are you having an Oscar hangover? We’ll have a recap for you today, with all the winners, losers and pretty pictures.

On Jimmy Kimmel‘s show last night, he employed Scarlett Johannson, Emily Blunt, Jessica Biel, Jessica Alba, Sofia Vergara and Lindsay Lohan for this Hottie Body Hump Club ad.

Out soccer player Natasha Kai leads a group of women in this new Puma ad that wants women to start a game up anywhere you can.

Natasha, I’ll find some space if you want to bring your ball over to my place.

Jersey Shore star Pauly D is looking for a woman just like Ellen DeGeneres. I don’t think Portia has any cause to worry.

Australia is getting its own Real L Word. It’s called Generation L, and while it hasn’t gotten picked up for TV yet, it will be airing as a web series on its YouTube channel.

We’ll be getting the scoop on the show for you in our new Aussie lesbian column debuting soon.

Jessie J was performing at the UK club G-A-Y a few nights ago and she told the crowd that her song “L.O.V.E.” is about a girl she was in love with. (Thanks for the tip Megs!)

The Daily Star has some Corrie spoilers about Sophie and Sian. They got the scoop from Brooke Vincent herself, who also had same nice things to say about her co-star, Sacha Parkinson.

I always call Sacha my chick or my girl. We’ve been friends for years so it’s great to come into work and spend all day with her. We speak on the phone all the time. If we go a whole day without seeing each other we’re even worse. It still shocks me how much the public like Sophie and Sian together. We’re both so chuffed with how it’s all gone.

We’re all chuffed (I think).

Germany now has their own Sophie/Sian-esque couple on Hand aufs Herz (Hand On the Heart). Jenny (Lucy Scherer) and Emma (Kasia Borek) are falling for one another on the musical telenovela. Thanks to Lost-in-Berlin for letting us know about it!

But wait — there’s more! On German show Anna und die Liebe (Anna and Love), Jasmine and Lily are beginning to realize their feelings for one another. Thanks to JayC21 for the tip!

Even though I don’t speak German, I think both of these couples look adorable and I am about to go invest in some Rosetta Stone.
