Charo is not a fan of Sofia Vergara. “Sofia Vergara is Charo With diarrhea.” Sofia responded at the red carpet for Machete Kills by saying “Of course she doesn’t like it. No one likes being compared with someone else, especially someone younger.”
Let’s please take a moment to mourn. The Eleventh Doctor is finished. They’ve wrapped the Christmas episode. You weren’t my favorite Matt Smith, but we will miss you.
According to Gene Simmons, Kurt Cobain and Amy Winehouse aren’t music icons. “From 1984 until today, name one superstar that’s bigger than their music, and not just somebody that’s recorded one or two records, but another Queen or another AC/DC, or somebody with a body of work? You can’t name one. Kurt Cobain — no, »

Judy Shepard has responded to the Ole Miss football players who heckled a production of The Laramie Project. “One thing I often see in productions of The Laramie Project is that involvement in the play sparks in them an awareness of anti-gay hate that they often would not have noticed, especially when performed at colleges and universities. Seeing how the community of Laramie, Wyoming was affected by the murder of my son as told in the play, creates a space where a community can talk about hate.” The chancellor of the school has finally apologized and promised the students will “be held accountable.”

TV Line has what is allegedly the track list for the Glee Cory Monteith tribute next week, but Fox hasn’t confirmed it. It seems reasonable, though, and I’ve been patiently waiting for this show to do the first song on the list for years.

Remember when Jennifer Lopez got called out for performing for a virtual dictator with huge human rights violations, and her people said she wouldn’t have done it if they’d bothered to Google the guy? Well, it’s not an isolated incident, and she’s taken big seven figure paychecks for performing for some of the worst human rights violators in the world over the last few years.
Texas has passed their draconian anti-abortion bill, which Democrats are now using as a rallying cry to turn the state blue. As much as I’d like to see that, yeah, good luck with that.

Good Morning! It really is an awesome morning with the striking down of Doma as unconstitutional and saying "Peace out, Prop 8!" I'm feeling all:
Turn on Logo for the latest on all these Supreme Court rulings.
I just do that with lesbians, like "come on, you’re not that lesbian. For heaven’s sake, you’re just being difficult now." She’s in a happy relationship, isn’t she? I won’t rest, until every lesbian relationship in Britain has been disrupted by an unwelcome boorish Essex boy.
I'm so sure that all the lesbians in the land are like "I guess I could try it with this loud, hairy British man."

Michelle Chamuel has made it into the finals of The Voice. I'm not surprised, I'm just delighted! Let's look at Michelle behind-the-scenes, when the competition isn't so stressful.
Speaking of Pll, the book series' author Sara Shepherd did a Q&A at Goodreads where she talked about Emily's queerness.
I think it's great that gay and lesbian teens, especially, can see a character on TV who struggled with her sexuality, dealt with family backlash, and has now gotten through it and is living her life. I also know that the Pll staff did a video for the It Gets Better campaign for Lgbt kids and bullying. When I started writing the books, »

Charice says her girlfriend Alyssa Quijano is "like her everything." They've known each other for years, having met when they competed against one another in a singing competition and re-meeting when Charice was judging The X-Factor and Alyssa was a contestant. I need some duets, stat.
This fall, PBS will air American Masters: Billie Jean King. The documentary will premiere on Tuesday, September 10 and will feature commentary from King herself as well as Rosie Casals, Chris Evert, Venus Williams, Gloria Steinem, Sir Elton John, and Bobby Riggs' son Larry.
I'm super excited about the lesbian couple in Under the Dome. »

Pitt lived in New York with a good reputation and a bad marriage to a woman addicted to Valium. As colleagues dealt with the devastation and uncertainty of AIDS – it was the 1980s – he grappled with openly acknowledging his sexuality. He was Mormon. And gay. And the two didn’t mix.
Before Pitt, there was a gay Mormon character in a novel: Brigham Anderson, in Allan Drury’s “Advise and Consent,” published in 1959. But words like “gay” and “homosexual” weren’t used; it was all innuendo.
Now, the scene has changed: Gay Mormon characters and themes have a growing role in theater and literature.

The film, produced by David Permut, Rick Rosenthal and Matt Ratner, and it has just wrapped its New York City shoot.
