Morning Brew – Tatum O’Neal is “dating women now”


Good morning!

In case you ever shipped Kristy McNichol and Tatum O’Neal in Little Darlings, it is your lucky day! Tatum tells People she is, well, not straight.

“I like women. I definitely have been dating mostly women recently. I’m not one or the other. I think women are the most amazing creatures on earth. They’re gentle, and also more intelligent than the men that I’ve met recently. I don’t have a steady right now, but I look forward to it.”

Judy Garland‘s former assistant, Stevie Phillips, has written a tell-all about her time with the legendary star, and, apparently, they had “lesbian car sex.”

On one of the interminable limo rides to a show date, Garland reached her hand across the back seat and onto Phillips’ knee. When the car lurched forward, “her hand was now fully in my crotch and she was staring straight ahead. Then she turn and smiled.

In an instant my body turned rigid and I stopped breathing while every possible weak-kneed simpering response like, I don’t think so. Please! Not my thing. I wish you wouldn’t –collided in my head. I mustered all the courage I had and turned in her direction. Take another breath and say something, I commanded myself. Nothing would come out.”


Sure gives a new meaning to “Over the Rainbow!”

Sally Wainwright says she regrets killing Kate on Last Tango in Halifax. The writer/producer told a crowd at Hay Festival:

“I was very sad to do it. I wrote another ending but it didn’t work. At the time, I thought it was the right choice, but I do actually regret it now.”


The New York Times profiles Abby Wambach, and she had this to say about being out:

“I never felt like I had to have this huge party for myself about my sexuality. To make a party for something that I think of as normal, for me, that just didn’t seem authentic. I wanted it to be as normal as possible.”


I never had a coming out party either, Abby. Want to throw one together!?
