Best known for her roles on Claws and Reno 911, where she gave the iconic quote, “you can’t fight crime if you ain’t cute,” Niecy Nash surprised everyone when she posted photos of her wedding on Instagram. In an interview with People Magazine she states, “I don’t feel like my marriage is my coming out of anywhere, but rather a going into myself and being honest about who I love.” What a sweet way to put it.

Nash states she and Betts were friends, but she “never saw her as someone I would date.” There is hope, ladies! Shoot your shot!

Caster Semenya Loses Appeal to Overturn CAS Ruling

The olympic track and field champion and lesbian lost her appeal to the Swiss Federal Tribunal ruling that female athletes with a naturally high level of testosterone must take medication to reduce it. Last year the Court of Arbitration, or the CAS, the highest court in sports, ruled that World Athletics regulations were necessary for athletes with difference in sexual development for races ranging from 400 meters to a mile. They argue that this is to ensure fairness in the competition. The tribunal states that certain female athletes being subjected to drug or surgical intervention does not violate Swiss public policy. But Semenya states, “I am very disappointed by this ruling, but refuse to let World Athletics drug me or stop me from being who I am. Excluding female athletes or endangering our health solely because of our natural abilities puts World Athletics on the wrong side of history. I will continue to fight for the human rights of female athletes, both on the track and off the track, until we can all run free the way we were born. I know what is right and will do all I can to protect basic human rights, for young girls everywhere.” Semenya also states that she will focus on shorter sprint races at the Tokyo Olympics.
