Lily Tomlin and partner Jane Wagner thinking about marriage

  • Pop2it
Actress Lily Tomlin has revealed to E! News that she and longtime partner Jane Wagner may finally be walking down the aisle.

"Jane and I have been together for 42 years. We're thinking maybe we'll get married," says Tomlin at the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Pre-Emmy Performers Peer Group reception. "You don't really need to get married, but marriage is awfully nice. Everybody I know who got married, they say it really makes a difference. They feel very, very happy about it."

She adds that they didn't think gay marriage would be legal in their lifetime, calling it "remarkable."

The two met in 1971 when Tomlin asked Wagner, a writer, director and producer, to work on a comedy album together. And, being the funny women that they are, Tomlin cracks of the wedding, "No rings, no bridal dresses. Maybe we'll be dressed like chickens."

That would be amazing.

L.A.’s Women’s Theatre Festival Going for ‘Perfect 20’

The Los Angeles Women’s Theatre Festival will debut a men’s program and youth performances when it opens for the 20th time this March. The annual exhibition of performance artists, which was founded by Adilah Barnes, an African-American solo artist, and Miriam Reed, a white solo artist, has long been a heaven for female actors, poets, and storytellers—particularly those of color. “We have been multi-ethnic and multi-disciplined—African American, Jewish, Middle Eastern, Asian, Latina,” Barnes told Backstage. “The majority of them are actors—80 percent—because a lot of actors are now doing solo shows, they’re becoming a lot more autonomous, and with more autonomy the more empowered you are.” This year’s festival, which opens March 21 with a gala hosted by Danny Glover and “Becker” star Hattie Winston, is moving its main venue from the Electric Lodge Performing Arts Center in Venice, a 97-seat theater, to the

Feminist Friday: The Sentencing of Pussy Riot, Paul Ryan’s Fits about Your Ladybits

Tags: Pussy RiotRachel MaddowPaul RyanElizabeth BanksHolland TaylorMartha PlimptonIMDb

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Marina Alyokhina, and Yekaterina Samutsevich of Pussy Riot have been sentenced to two years in prison, officially for hooliganism and having a concert at a Moscow Cathedral, but many believe their actual crime is pissing off Vladimir Putin. Gawker published their fierce and moving closing statements last week. I highly recommend them.

This Week in Ladybits

Feministing pointed to a remarkable article by an abortion provider on what’s at stake in the ongoing attempts to lock down your uterus.

Hey, Rachel Maddow, are your arms tired from hammering Paul Ryan all week? In addition to looking like Will Schuester’s evil twin, Ryan really, really, really does not care for ladies controlling their own ladybits. For example, he sponsored a bill that would make abortion illegal even in the case of rape or incest - and Kevin Drum over

But he’s through the worst, and looking forward to Walliams marriage, and their new projects together, beyond and separate from Little Britain.

Anybody still watching 90210? It turns out they’ve finally gotten to their lesbian kiss between Jessica Lowndes and Rumer Willis. Where are they going with it? That’s not clear, but frankly, if the relationship can stabilize Adrianna a bit, the show may become watchable again.

Lily Tomlin and Coco Peru share an extraordinary conversation at La Gay & Lesbian Center event

By Greg Hernandez

It was one of those nights so special that anyone who was there, will never forgot it. Thank God I was one of those folks in the audience last night for Coco Peru’s In Conversation with Lily Tomlin held, appropriately, at the Lily Tomlin Jane Wagner Cultural Arts Center.

“My head is about to explode,” an excited Coco said before bringing Lily onstage for close to three hours of stories and clips from the great star’s 45-year career on television, in movies and on stage.

Jane Wagner, Lily’s personal and professional partner of nearly 40 years, was in the front row of the packed theater and as the evening progressed, you realize just how crucial she has been to this brilliant career that has resulted in eight Emmys, two Tonys, a Grammy and an Oscar nomination among many other accolades.

Lily Tomlin could have turned Lindsay Lohan gay

The first thing Kathy Griffin asked Lily Tomlin when she got her into bed on last night's My Life on the D-List was, "Did you turn Lindsay Lohan gay?"

Tomlin's response: "Ha ha ha! Actually, you know — maybe I did! I think she was sort of leaning, and, well, she probably admired my work so much, she thought that was the path to artistry."

It all started when Griffin shouted a D-List guest star invitation to Tomlin during the middle of one of her stand-up routines. Tomlin's initial response was to shield her eyes, look out in the audience and say, "No, I refuse to get on your sinking ship!" But of course she did, because Lily Tomlin is nothing if not a good sport, and Kathy Griffin's ship certainly isn't sinking. (Unless God smites her during a freak thunderstorm, which, let's be honest, is entirely possible.)
