Morning Brew: Daytime TV’s only lesbians return to “The Bold and the Beautiful,” Jane Lynch has terrible taste in men

Good morning, Brewbies! I don’t know about you, but I am in the throes of a full-blown Doccubus hangover after last night’s season three Lost Girl premiere, and it hurts so good. I don’t want to spoil anything for our American readers who won’t watch the show until it airs next week on Syfy, but OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD. Also, how cute were Anna Silk and Zoie Palmer last night on Twitter?


Dorothy Snarker‘s famous Boobs O’Clock recaps will, of course, return for season three. We’ll be posting them after the episodes are here in the U.S.

Karen and Danielle were finally back on The Bold and the Beautiful on Friday. They visited Caroline in the hospital (because 76 percent of all soaps take place in hospitals) and really threw the doctor for a loop.

Doctor: I heard your parents are here. Who is mom?
Karen: We both are mom.
Doctor: Uhhh. Well. Uhhh. OK?

Hopefully Caroline will develop a brain cloud from her concussion so Karen and Danielle can stick around.

Filmmaker Cindy Abel penned an moving piece in the Huffington Post about what it meant to come out as a lesbian in Hollywood 20 years ago and how the 25 openly LGBT elected officials in America are making it easier and safer for folks to come out today. Her new film, Breaking Through, examines the lives of gay politicians who came after Barney Frank, and what they mean for the future of equality.

Apparently Jane Lynch told Glamour that she gets crushes on dudes sometimes. (I say “apparently” because every gossip site on the internet is squawking about it, but I can’t find the quote in the actual magazine.) So, according to the buzz machine, Jane said:

Let’s get one thing out there right away; I have crushes on guys all the time. I’m gay but I’m not immune to the male charm. Russell Brand would be fun. I kissed him full on the lips on Jay Leno’s show … of course he’s out of his mind, but I think that might make things quite fun.

Really, Jane? Russell Brand? Ah, well. At least she didn’t say Dane Cook.

National Organization for Marriage Co-Founder and writer of the world’s most syndicated anti-gay opinion column is hanging up her homophobic hat after two decades of trying to save America from the homosexuals. That’s right: Maggie Gallagher has finally realized she is fighting a losing battle against equality, and so, this weekend, she called it quits in a column ironically titled “A Farewell to Optimism.” A more accurate title would have been “A Farewell to Delusion.” Anyway, hope to see you never again, Mags!

The Slope was our staff choice for best web series in the Visibility Awards this year, so we’re super psyched about Ingrid Jungermann‘s follow-up, F to 7th. Trish Bendix mentioned the project in Brew a couple of months ago and I’m happy to report that it received all the funding it needed, and the premiere date has been set for Jan. 21st! The eight-episode series features an impressive group of guest stars, including Amy Sedaris, Michael Showalter, and Gaby Hoffmann. You can find out more at the official F to 7th website.
