Morning Brew: Tuesday, May 4

Hey guys!

So Curve magazine claims Chely Wright isn’t the only country singer to come out as gay this month and the woman in question will be their June cover girl. However, you can see who it is tomorrow on their site at 9 a.m. EST.

Any guesses? I’m guessing it’s not Carrie Underwood. I’m betting she’s never heard of Curve.

Speaking of Chely Wright, she talked with Access Hollywood about a dark time in her life, when she contemplated suicide:

I was looking at myself in a mirror… as I was about to do it. I just looked at myself and something snapped and I started to cry… and I realized I have too much to live for. I may lose my career in country music (by ‘coming out’), that will break my heart, but it’s okay. I have a lot of different pieces of my heart that matter and that’s what I’ve come to learn.

Depressing! But if you watch the video from Access Hollywood, it’s worse — “Chely Wright admits she’s gay!” It’s like she stole a candy bar and went back to return it to the store, admitting her bad deed.

For those of you that think Bert and Ernie always had a thing for each other, check out this list of Top 10 Almost-Gay TV Couples. The ones that will have you saying “duh” include Cagney and Lacey and Kate and Ally. One I would have liked to see: Tori from Saved by the Bell and any female student gracing the hallways of Bayside High. She was totally a dyke on a bike. BTW she’s gay IRL!

Last night’s episode of House was super gay. They treated a patient who had been going under ex-gay conversion therapy so that he could marry a woman he claims “cured him.”

Then Thirteen took House to a lesbian bar. Unfortunately, Thirteen talked to her boss and not to any ladies. On the up side: House told the patient that you are born gay and no conversion therapy can change that. His fiancee left him but it was all for the better.

Prepare to get really excited! Emily Deschanel will play a lesbian in the upcoming film Perfect Family. Her character is a successful lawyer who becomes pregnant and “struggles when it comes time to telling her mother the truth.” I’m not sure if this is regarding her lesbianism, her pregnancy, or both. Either way, YAY.

Want some Grey’s Anatomy spoilers? Don’t say I didn’t warn you! (I kind of hope the “threesome” one isn’t for Calzona, despite the fact we “will laugh.” Not funny after the 1000th time.)

Portia de Rossi made another appearance on her wife’s show this week, regarding her mystery animal.

Chew on all of that! TTYL.
