Morning Brew – Wednesday, October 20: Disabled interracial lesbian moms on tonight’s “Modern Family,” Otep responds to a hater

Welcome back to the Brew! Are you wearing purple today? I am! My pug appreciates it.

So it appears that celebrities can access the internet. First, Kristen Stewart acknowledges that Krisbians exist, and now Dianna Agron says she knows rumors exist about her and Lea Michele being more than just friends. In talking about her racy GQ photoshoot with her Glee co-star, Agron told The Boston Herald:

When it was just Lea and me, I was like, “We’re in skimpy clothes, we’re up against each other. This is feeding those rumors!”

And yet, she still posed. Think about that one, Rachel/Quinn shippers.

You guys, Kim Zolciak thinks she’s a gay icon. Now who told her that?


It certainly wasn’t her ex-flame.

Krysta Cameron is the frontwoman of a metal band called iwrestledabearonce, and she recently went on tour with Otep. Unfortunately, she had some not-so-nice things to say about the out frontwoman.

Well, we never really talked. [Otep Shamaya’s] fans would come up to me crying. She wouldn’t talk to them or anything. They’d ask us if we could get her and we were like, “If we even come near her bus she’ll probably set us on fire or something.” Maybe she’s a cyborg. She’d sit in the back of the bus all day. She wouldn’t leave. Everyday when they got up on stage … she’d say, “Hell yeah, we have two women on this tour! There needs to be more women in metal!” And I was just like, “You don’t even talk to me or my band. You were pushed by the label and by your management to talk to me.”

Maybe I shouldn’t be saying this, but I don’t really care if it causes a fight or anything. I know how she really is and I just don’t really agree with it. I’m all about someone who writes powerful lyrics about women’s rights or being a lesbian, because I’m all about that – my sister and brother are both gay. That’s cool. But she speaks so highly about how f—ing evil capitalism is and then she’s doing little doodles every day and selling them for $40. I don’t know… that’s no better than George Bush to me. … We loved the members of her band, they’re awesome, but we don’t really care for her at all. She needs to talk to her fans and actually live up to what she thinks, or at least talks about.

Otep’s response?

Lesbian comedy duo That’s What She Said will be performing a show to benefit The Trevor Project in Los Angeles on Nov. 6. Check it out if you’re in the area.

Did anyone watch Bad Girls Club last night? It was another very special lesbian episode, when Christina’s girlfriend came to visit. Come back later today for interviews with Lea and Christina and more on the BGC being the most lesbian show on television right now.

Margaret Cho has made a contribution to the It Gets Better Project. It’s short and sweet!


On TV today: new episodes of The Ellen DeGeneres Show (check local listings), The Talk (CBS 2 p.m.), America’s Next Top Model (The CW 7 p.m.), The Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC 9 p.m. and midnight). (Thanks Roni!)

But you should definitely tune in to Modern Family for this:


“Disabled interracial lesbians!” I love when that’s a winning combination.

Talk to you later!
