Lily Tomlin (1986)
After 42 years together, the comedian and her partner married in a private ceremony in Los Angeles, Calif. on New Year's Eve. News of their wedding was first made public in a Chicago Tribune Arts & Entertainment article written by Liz Smith, a friend of the couple, on Friday (Jan. 3).
"And my longtime friends, Lily Tomlin and her love, the writer Jane Wagner, got married on the eve of 2014," Smith writes in an article about Bob Fosse. "My wish is that their happiness will be as great as their combined talents."
Tomlin's rep confirmed the story with E! News on Tuesday, adding, "They're very happy."
Congrats to the happy couple!

"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.

The team behind The Real L Word are revving up for a Real L Word documentary. The producers are currently casting and looking for “lesbians with important and compelling stories to tell for a documentary-approach to lesbian life beyond the city lights. This project will focus on the experience of living as a lesbian in more conservative areas throughout the country where non-acceptance is still the norm.
Before it was a show, the L word was love. And lesbians. Lesbians and love. So for this very special holiday that happens every year, we wanted to get in the spirit with some of both. Lesbians in love.
Jenny Shimizu and Michelle Violy Harper
Model/actress Jenny Shimizu is as famous for having dated Angelina Jolie as she is for her androgynous fashion appeal, but she doesn't seem to mind. As to if she'll ever get married, Jenny told Diva, "You know, that's a hard one. Either we get the same laws as heterosexual couples, or I don't want it at all. But I'd like to settle down and get married. I feel like, as gay people, we date each other and being girlfriends has always been enough for me, but I'm not sure.
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.

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
Matt Lucas credits his creative partner David Walliams with getting him through the dark times of his divorce, and eventual suicide of his husband Kevin McGee. 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.

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.
“I fell madly in love
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.)
