!! OMG, She’s Talking Again: Rosie O gets third chance from Oprah !!


Move over Ellen Degeneres! Lesbian entertainer Rosie O’Donnell is making a triumphant return to your television– and this time we’ll be getting koosh-tossing, Tom Cruise-loving Nice Rosie, not that “mean fat loud lesbian” Rosie who made Elizabeth Hasselback cry!
Her Royal O-ness Oprah Winfrey has picked up O’Donnell’s talk show for her new OWN network under the condition that she return to her nicey-nice roots. We’ll see if Rosie can keep her trap shut about 9/11 conspiracies and getting orally serviced by gangs of tanned, toned Amazons at the Dinah Shore Golf Classic.
Meanwhile, somewhere in Santa Barbara, Gayle King is rifling through O’s undie drawers and sniffing the sheets under the suspicion that this decision might be more than just business…

!! OMG, Yay: Proposition 8 overturned (again) !!

misscalifornia.jpg
Well lookee! Prop 8’s been overturned– again! U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker rained on Carrie Prejean’s wedding day with his ruling today that the infamous California law banning same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.
Judge Walker writes in his decision:
Proposition 8 fails to advance any rational basis in singling out gay men and lesbians for denial of a marriage license. Indeed the evidence shows Proposition 8 does nothing more than enshrine in the California constitution the notion that opposite sex couples are superior to same sex couples.
Don’t get too excited though– the ruling has already been appealed and probably won’t be truly decided until it makes it to the SCOTUS, where the likes of Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas will get the opportunity to put their two Republican cents in.

!! OMG, The Tribe Has Spoken: Closeted celebrities get televised coming out party !!

latifah.jpg
Proving that you can make a reality show about absolutely f*cking anything, professional celebrity coming out helper Howard Bragman– who guided celebrities like Meredith Baxter, Chaz Bono and Chely Wright through the dangerous waters of revealing their lezness– has a new reality special premiering on A&E. It’s called, predictably, Coming Out and will feature big stars D-List semi-celebrities telling the world YES I’M GAY.
Any guesses about who the show will star?

!! OMG, To Whom it Concerns: Sara Gilbert gets a daytime talk show !!


Move over Rolanda, Carnie Wilson, Faith Daniels and Gabrielle Cartreris: there’s a new hostess on the block. Oh wait… they already moved over? Oops! Well continuing: everyone’s favorite Conner sibling, Darlene, (aka actress Sara Gilbert) is getting her own talk show.
Ms. Gilbert, who has blossomed since we last saw her from from a sourfaced goth teen caterpillar into a lesbian mommy butterfly, was given the show over other competing actresses due to the recently implemented law that all talk show hostesses must be Daughters of Sappho.
The show will focus on parenting (zzzzzs!) and will feature panelists such as CBS HBIC Julie Chen, forgotten sitcom actress Holly “Dont Call Me Robin Givens” Robinson Peete, Scientologist loon Leah Remini and the ubiquitous Sharon Osborne.
The show replaces the departing As the World Turns, which, boo-hoo except I only watch Days and sometimes AMC so who cares.

!! OMG, She’s a Musician: Margaret Cho !!

chodependent.jpg
Wait, what? Margaret Cho has (temporarily?) turned in her comedian hat (it never seemed to fit her that well in the first place!) and exchanged it for the golden microphone of a chanteuse! Her new album, Cho Dependent, is out August 24th and features lez-icon collaborators such as Tegan and Sarah and Ani DiFranco. Yes, that Ani DiFranco is apparently still alive.
Cho tells New York Magazine a bit about her new career and shares some of her favorite songs of all time in this (sort of) revealing interview. Surprise, she likes Prince.
No word, however, on whether the new album includes any songs in her trademark fake-Korean mom accent, but fingers crossed! You can stream her new song, Eat Shit and Die, at her website.
