Morning Brew – Mon. July 16: Adrienne Bailon kisses a girl, Michele Ragussis creates a pilot for Food Network


Good morning!

On Style Network’s reality show Empire Girls: Julissa & Adrienne, aspiring actress Adrienne Bailon prepares to audition for a lesbian role which includes a girl-on-girl kiss. First she worries her parents will be pissed about it. Second she tries to practice on her friends. Thirdly, she goes through with it and then doesn’t get the part. All that worrying and saying the word “lesbian” for nothing!

And this LA writer decided to try on lesbianism for size. But don’t worry — she met the man of her dreams a few days later! PHEW!

Lesbian Michele Ragussis has made it to the finals of The Next Food Network’s Star and she created a pilot for the judges to consider. Check it out and then go vote for her to win her very own show.

The L.A. Times spoke with Ilene Chaiken about the reality of The Real L Word. The executive producer/creator said that she finds doing it “tricky” because “The challenge is that a woman like Bette Porter is not going to be on a reality show.” You don’t say!

Out musician Tara Jane O’Neil is raising money for her new album on Kickstarter.

True Blood‘s Comic-Con trailer has lots of glimpses into the rest of the season. I am loving Tara and Pam’s relationship.

The final season of Fringe is also looking pretty good, especially Anna Torv and Jasika Nicole.

Jasika looked great on the panel, too!
