Afternoon Delight: Lady Gaga reveals “Born This Way Ball” tour poster, Maya Rudolph will host “SNL”


Good afternoon!

Happy birthday to actresses Ziyi Zhang, Amber Valletta, Mia Farrow and Judith Light!

Xena herself, Lucy Lawless, told The Huffington Post that Parks & Recreation producers asked her to play Ron Swanson’s ex-wife Tammy 1 but she turned down the role because of her Spartacus schedule. The role ultimately went to Patricia Clarkson while Megan Mullaly (real-life wife to actor Nick Offerman) was cast as Tammy 2. I would have loved to watch Lawless and Mullaly go head to head.

Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way Ball” tour poster has arrived! Is it all you dreamed it would be?

Naomi Watts (Mulholland Dr.) has been cast to play the late Princess Diana in the biopic Caught In Flight. The Hollywood Reporter writes, “Billed as a compelling portrait of Diana, Princess of Wales during the last two years of her life, the script charts her search for personal happiness as she turned into a major international campaigner and humanitarian.”

If you live in Los Angeles, join lesbian comedians Jennie McNulty and Mimi Gonzalez for an Amateur Drag King Contest at M Bar tomorrow night at 10 p.m . McNulty (aka Dirty Steve) and Gonzalez (aka Juan A. Notha) will give out cash and prizes to the best competitors. Good luck fellas!

Universal Pictures announced yesterday that Bridesmaids is the number one most ordered video-on-demand movie of all time! So far the film has been ordered 4.8 million times and three million were from me.

Speaking of Maya Rudolph, the Up All Night star will be returning to Saturday Night Live to host the February 18 episode with musical guest Sleigh Bells. (Santa?)

Funny lady Chelsea Handler is on the cover of February’s Redbook. When I think of love, I surely think of Handler.

If you’re sitting at home alone on Valentine’s night, tune into VH1’s Sports Illustrated: The Making of Swimsuit 2012 at 8 p.m. This special will go behind-the-scenes of the photo shoots “from some of the world’s most exotic locations with the world-famous Swimsuit models.”

Or if that doesn’t float your boat, pick up Amber Heard’s The Rum Diary on Blu-ray, out the same day.

Actress Kristen Bell shows off her love of tattoos in the below Funny or Die video. Funny and pretty? Blondes have all the luck!

Musical twins Tegan and Sara Quin are now reviewing albums with their phalanges. (Hey, I know big words!)

Lesbian/Bi Photo of the Day!

Last night an uber blonde Lindsay Lohan strutted her stuff on the red carpet at the amfAR New York Gala to kick off Fall 2012 Fashion Week. Lohan is so pretty, she looks like a doll.
