Sacha Baron Cohen has decided that the story of the Hong Kong dad who tried to buy his lesbian daughter a husband is movie-worthy. The film will be called The Lesbian and I am only a tiny bit skeptical.

This might not surprise you but Jenny McCarthy used to make out with her other Playboy playmates when they were bored. She’d teased about this sort of thing before, but here’s how that romance went down:

Holding up drugs in front of a group of Playmates was like holding up an arm to a cannibal tribe. We jumped on the box fighting to get as many little white capsules as possible. Instead of saving some for later, we all pounded at least five at once. It was incredibly intense. So much so that we all began to express love for one another by making out with each other.

That’s probably about all of the lesbianness included in her new book. Straight guys are going to love it. Will any guys actually buy her book?

Marlene King likes to write Pretty Little Liars episodes in her bathtub with her laptop and a bottle of Diet Mt. Dew. Try it out if you ever have writer’s block! Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter did a piece on how Pretty Little Secrets fits in with the ABC Family series.

Roseanne is in Portland filming the new season of Portlandia and she’s really excited about working with Carrie Brownstein, as she loves Sleater-Kinney. Does anyone remember that amazing riot grrrl episode of Roseanne with Jenna Elfman?
