Morning Brew – Thursday, Sept. 22: Ellen’s new book, Rooney Mara kisses a girl in the new “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo” trailer


Good morning! Did you know Grey’s Anatomy is back on TV tonight? Of course you did!

OK, I’m sold on Rooney Mara as Lisbeth Salander in this new extended trailer for The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Spot the lesbian kissing scene!

Ceara Sturgis was the girl cut from her yearbook because she wore a tuxedo for her picture. Her school district tried to get her resulting lawsuit thrown out, but a U.S. district judge said no way. Victory for Ceara! Now the case can move forward and hopefully she’ll end up with some money for her time and effort.

Ellen DeGeneres has a new book coming out. It’s called Seriously …. I’m Kidding and will be released on hardcover and for the Kindle on October 4. Here’s the description, in Ellen’s own words:

I’ve experienced a whole lot the last few years and I have a lot to share. So I hope that you’ll take a moment to sit back, relax and enjoy the words I’ve put together for you in this book. I think you’ll find I’ve left no stone unturned, no door unopened, no window unbroken, no rug unvacuumed, no ivories untickled. What I’m saying is, let us begin, shall we?

Yes, I’ll be reading that, thank you!

You guys, a pair of gals got hitched and their wedding was Star Trek themed! Lesbians are passionate fans.

Former EastEnders actress Tamzin Outhwaite is playing a sporty gay girl in a new play — and she’s loving it. She calls it “a breath of fresh air.” Breathe it in, Tamzin!

Where does Emily get her style on Pretty Little Liars? From costume designer Mandi Line, who told Zap2it about her inspiration.

“I based her off one of my high-profile lesbian club promoter friends. Really edgy ripped jeans, multiple bracelets, the flannel. Still true to her comfortable side — no heels — but going a little bit darker, which to me is sexier. And ripped jeans and combat boots.

Maybe she’s borrowing from her own style as well, although less hardcore and feathery. If you want some tips on how to dress just like that, read the rest of the piece.

Do you own napkin rings? I don’t — is it because I’m a lesbian? Rosie O’Donnell says it is. She told a reporter about having her house set up for Oprah‘s visit.

I panicked. My publicist Cindi Berger got a caterer, she got linens, platters, napkin rings. I’m a lesbian — I don’t have napkin rings. So, everything was perfect, and Oprah walked in with five people, and the first thing my daughter Vivvy said to her was, “Our house is really never this fancy.”

BTW, what is a napkin ring? Is it that little thing that goes around a napkin? Unnecessary!

While we’re talking about Rosie, she is mad that The Talk won’t say what happened with Leah Remini and Holly Robinson-Peete, and I agree!

Out comedian Lianna Carrera wrote about a possible lesbian loophole in the Bible over at The Huffington Post.
