Betty DeGeneres has participated in a PSA to raise awareness for Seth’s Law. Seth’s Law requires California schools to enact anti-bullying policies. Watch DeGeneres team up with students in Orange County, CA. (I have a crush on the girl at the :25 mark who says, “Yay!”)

For the first time ever, AfterEllen and AfterElton are celebrating their Hot 100 Lists in an exciting star-studded live event. On Monday, July 16 in Los Angeles, CA we will celebrate the hottest celebrities in pop culture at an event that will feature a live performance by Virgin Records/EMI dance/pop artist NiRe Alldai. The event will also benefit the It Gets Better Project and offer attendees the opportunity to record video messages on-site. Since our fans selected the Hot 100 List, we want to give you a chance to join us for our first annual Hot 100 Party. Visit AfterEllen’s Facebook page and “like” us for a chance to win two tickets to this fabulous, exclusive event. Sadly I won’t be in attendance because I’ll be out of town, but if I was there I’d be dressed to the nines and rocking my best pair of spanx!

Get ready for this! The U.S. Military is creating body armor for female soldiers based on gear seen on the show Xena: Warrior Princess. OK, now I’ve heard it all.

FBI Agent Dana Scully, err I mean actress Gillian Anderson was in attendance at the “no-boys allowed” Tatler Lesbian Ball. I’m in love with Anderson’s red dress.

Wanna see who else was there? Then watch the video below. And yes that is out actress Fiona Shaw at the 2:05 mark singing “I’m sexy and I know it.”

Amanda Peet has signed for a multi-episode arc on The Good Wife. Peet will play “a military lawyer who hires Alicia to help her sue a contract worker for attempted sexual assault.” That’s nice and all but is there any chance she’ll have a love scene with Archie Panjabi‘s Kalinda? Come on you were totally thinking it too!

In four weeks Portia de Rossi will be reporting to the Arrested Development set.
