Morning Brew – Mon. August 13: Shiri Appleby plays Lauren German’s pregnant ex on “Chicago Fire,” Dot Jones’ partner is suing mad


Good morning! Are you doing OK now that the Olympics are over? We’ll have to get through this together.

Congrats to the Dutch field hockey team and the U.S. Women’s Basketball team, as they both took top honors in the Summer Games. Lesbians FTW in London!

Heidi Rhoades was spotted wearing some bling-bling that looks to be an engagement ring. Did Jillian Michaels propose to her baby mama? If so, you know People magazine will be there with some cameras ready.

We might end up hating Shiri Appleby when she appears on Chicago Fire. The actress has been cast as Lauren German‘s ex-girlfriend Clarice, “who is pregnant and married to a rich husband.” I cannot even wait for this show, you guys.

It looks like Dot Jones is going through some similar real life drama! Her partner Bridgett Casteen is in a legal battle with her ex-husband over some cash and their kids. For some reason Bridgett talked with Radar (who refer to her as “Dot’s lesbian lover”) and let them know what was going on:

I sued my ex-husband for custody so that I can have my children in California with me and Dot. We had a verbal agreement where I was providing food and clothes for them. It wasn’t until we went to court earlier this month that we were told by a judge that the verbal agreement didn’t have legal standing, and that I owed $28,000. I immediately paid $10,000 of that amount.

Good luck to you, lesbian lovers! In other news, this is really the first time Dot’s sexuality has ever been discussed publicly, so it looks like her lesbian lover has outed her.

Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years 1984 to 1992 will be coming to video-on-demand next month. Rad!
