Morning Brew – Mon. April 30: Tania Raymonde plays a lesbian activist in “Blue Like Jazz,” Archie Panjabi on Kalana

Good morning!

If you need some lesbian dating advice, allow self-professed guru Milly DuBouchet to help. She shares some tips with Paper, including:

..keep things short and casual, like running errands together. “I’m totally against the traditional date,” she says. “People get nervous and over zealous when planning a date and it shouldn’t be that serious.”

Pam and Eric get into it over Russell Edgington in this True Blood clip.

Jane Lynch is number two on Zimbio’s list of Funniest Women on TV. Second only to Tina Fey, of course.

Rachel Maddow is not interested in men lying to her about women, as evidenced by this Meet the Press argument she got into over the weekend. Step off Alex Castellanos!

Archie Panjabi talked with TV Guide about Kalinda’s relationship with FBI agent Lana Delaney.

One person we least expect to see it is in front of Lana Delaney because there’s always this sexual chemistry between the two of them, and suddenly you see them in a very different light. What I did like about the scene is that you also get to see Lana Delaney in a different light. You realize that there is something quite special between these two women. It’s not purely sexual, though whether there continues to be something special after this, who knows.

Speaking of The Good Wife, how about that finale?!

In the new film Blue Like Jazz, Tania Raymonde plays a lesbian activist named Lauryn who is friends with the main character, Don.

The adaptation if in theaters now, and I’m going to try and see it this week.
