Morning Brew – Fri. May 24: A party for Portia de Rossi, Sara Gilbert makes fun of lesbian stereotypes

Good morning!

Just in case you forgot, Sunday is Arrested Development day! Let’s celebrate with this portrait from The L.A. Times and a photo of Portia de Rossi from her L.A. Confidential magazine cover party.

BTW, if you need to catch up or rewatch the entire series before the new season, IFC is hosting a marathon all Saturday long.

If you ever see rumors about Pretty Little LiarsAshley Benson dating someone, it’s probably not true. She told the Huffington Post:

That I’m dating all of my friends. Every time I’m hanging out with Tyler [Blackburn], Keegan [Allen], my friend Isaac, my friends who are girls, I’m dating all of them. It’s very strange. I have a new boyfriend, a new girlfriend every week. But I’m single and I don’t have a boyfriend.

She did not say she did not have a girlfriend. Just pointing that out.

In case you missed Jillian Michaels co-hosting The View yesterday, you can watch it at

It’s more fun to watch this clip from The Talk, though, where the hosts make fun of the cultural stereotypes they may or may not fit into. Sara Gilbert puts on some flannel, some Tevas with socks and some leg hair for the occasion.

Want to meet Brandi Carlile? Make a bid! The auction is up to $355 as we speak, but it’s for a charitable cause.

In case you were wondering what Claire Mosley has been doing since The Real L Word, she’s making pocket squares.
