Morning Brew: Whoopi and Margaret Cho talk wacky weed on “The View”

Good morning, Brewbies! It’s Friday! You made it! High five!


This is your daily reminder to follow Trish Bendix on Twitter (@TrishBendix) to keep up with all the latest hijinks from the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour.

Margaret Cho has been angling for a spot as a permanent co-host on The View for a while now.  Yesterday, she guest-hosted and had a hilarious exchange with Whoopi Goldberg about the ways weed has changed over the years.

Cho is back on as a guest host today. Just give her the permanent spot already, ABC!

Anna Kendrick and Aubrey Plaza are having a hard time working out the finer details of their blossoming physical love.

Don’t be jealous, Brittany Snow. We’ll get drunk and let you take advantage of us.

Vulture published an article yesterday about how lesbians are having the best summer of TV representation ever. On the one hand, they’re totally right. On the other hand, stop killing all of our summer lesbians, TELEVISION.

Yesterday, Sherri Saum posted a photo of her and Teri Polo — whom she always tags as #MyTeriPolo in her tweets, because she is a flawless human being — as they were getting ready for an interview on Hallmark Channel’s Home and Family. Their episode airs this morning at 10:00 a.m. EST.

Speaking of photos of celebrities we love, BuzzFeed have given us an awesome list called “28 Times The Cast Of Orange Is The New Black Was Adorable Together On Instagram” and it is, well, adorable. It said it right there in the title. Adorable. And BuzzFeed doesn’t lie. See:


Man, I never get tired of looking at this beautiful, diverse cast. (Hi, Jodie!)

Over at Queerty, Stacy Lambe noticed that Rutgers’ new Athletic Director, Julie Hermann, has revealed that she’s gay in her official online Rutgers bio. He noted that she is one of only three current female athletic directors at the Football Bowl Subdivision level, and also one of the very few openly gay ADs. So, four for you, Julie Hermann. You go, Julie Hermann.

The Telegraph published a really incisive op-ed about what’s next for UK Prime Minster David Cameron now that marriage equality has been passed in England and Wales.

This is my dream. I want being gay, or bisexual or transgender, to be the left-handedness of the future. Yes we are a little bit different, but we are equal and nobody would dream of bullying us – just as they wouldn’t torment a left-hander.
