Best. Lesbian. Week. Ever. (February 29, 2008)

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Selma Blair (Cruel Intentions, Legally Blonde) has just signed on to play a “sarcastic lesbian high school teacher” in the film Driving Lessons, which is scheduled to begin shooting next month in Los Angeles.

Blair’s character has an affair with a student played by Madeline Zima, who recently played a teen who seduced David Duchovny on Showtime’s sardonic comedy Californication.

Driving Lessons, which is described as a black comedy, centers on a woman named Bunnie (Hope Davis) who is “given a second chance at her unhappy marriage to Jack (Dermot Mulroney) after losing her memory. It conveniently helps her forget an interracial affair with her burly next-door neighbor Simon.”

Bunnie apparently has a “religious, right-wing teenage son,” so I’m guessing that it’s through him that we meet Blair and Zima’s characters. All of this is great, but honestly, all I’m thinking about is whether Blair’s going to revisit those kissing lessons that she experienced during Cruel Intentions with Sarah Michelle Gellar.

Rosie O’Donnell
announced last Friday on her video blog that she and guest vlogger Fran Drescher (The Nanny) are working together on a sitcom. “We’re going to do a new, fun, happy, family comedy,” Drescher said.

When pressed for more details, Rosie’s spokesperson, Cindi Berger, said that “it’s way too premature” right now. Get the scoop from Rosie and Fran directly right here (it’s toward the very end of the vlog):

We’ll keep you updated on sitcom’s progress. Possibly in Sarah and Lori’s vlog Who Thought That Was a Good Idea?
