Morning Brew – Friday, October 22: Jessica Capshaw says bring on Arizona’s exes, Elisabeth Moss to play Keira’s love interest


Good news, guys. The weird casting rumor that Rosie O’Donnell would be playing Keira Knightley‘s object of affection in The Children’s Hour has been all cleared up. Rosie won’t be involved in the West End production. Instead, Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) will star, which I think is a great pairing. Lucky London-dwelling lesbians!

Lesbian trivia: Elisabeth had a lesbionic scene in the film Virgin.

Naya Rivera tells Fitness magazine that she wasn’t very athletic growing up.

My dad always wanted me to be sporty, so I tried softball. I was 12 and tiny, and all the other girls were huge and looked 25. I was too afraid of the ball to bat.

Hmm so she played softball, but she wasn’t any good — does that mean she’s bisexual?

Forbes says Ellen DeGeneres is the new Oprah. I’m OK with that.

OMG guys! “Bisexual bombshells!” No surprises, here, but some photos if you’d like to see them — you know, as a reminder.

The New Gay has 10 Halloween Costume Ideas for Lesbians. They’re all very practical and easy, except, maybe, for number seven, which requires a lot of stuffed cats.

Two lesbians in one band: that’s a ratio I enjoy. Check out the video from rising California band Sister Crayon.



I dig it! So ethereal.

In a new interview with Jessica Capshaw, the Grey’s Anatomy actress gives us some hints on what we can look forward to the rest of this season, and, also, if she thinks Arizona has ex-girlfriends:

You know what? I hope! Listen, everyone else has been there a full seven years and at the end of this season I will be there for 2 and a half years. I keep saying “Everyone else has all these great ex-girlfriends and boyfriends and all this stuff. Where’s my stuff!?” From the beginning, Arizona arrived on the scene and sort of had the great party line on everything and every answer that she has for a challenge or a question or anything was just sort of “I should have thought of that!” It’s just so good! So, yeah, it would great if she had a little bad lurking somewhere.

Bring ’em out, bring ’em out!

At a press conference in support of California’s Proposition 19 (the legalization of marijuana) yesterday, Melissa Etheridge spoke up to share her personal feelings:

I don’t want to look like a criminal to my children anymore. I want them to know this is a choice that you make as a responsible adult. Instantly, within a minute, [marijuana] relieves the nausea, relieves the pain. And all of a sudden I was normal. You don’t take medical marijuana to get high.

So if you vote against Prop. 19, you hate lesbians and cancer patients. Also, Danny Glover. That can’t be good.

Today on TV: Wanda Sykes on The Ellen DeGeneres Show (check local listings), Cynthia Nixon on Regis & Kelly, The Talk (CBS 2 p.m.), The Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC 9 p.m. and midnight) and lesbian-themed re-reuns of Friends (TBS 4:30 p.m.) and Law & Order (TNT 6 p.m.).

Have an awesome weekend!
