Morning Brew – Rosie O’Donnell appears as Allison Janney’s ex on tonight’s “Mom”

Good morning!

Rosie O’Donnell appears as Allison Janney‘s jilted ex, Jeanine, on tonight’s episode of Mom. It’s predictable with a few eye-roll worthy jokes but not completely offensive. Check out a few clips to hear about the “gay things.”

Lily-Rose Depp about her perceived “coming out” last year.

“That was really misconstrued, that whole thing. A lot of people took it as me coming out, but that’s not what I was trying to do. I was literally doing it just to say that you don’t have to label your sexuality; so many kids these days are not labeling their sexuality and I think that’s so cool, because you could think you like one thing…just like food, you could think peanut butter is your favorite food for, like, 5,000 years and then be like, ‘I actually like burgers better,’ you know? I was just trying to say that kids and people in general don’t have to label themselves and say, ‘I’m straight’ or ‘I’m gay’ or ‘I’m whatever.’ If you like something one day then you do, and if you like something else the other day, it’s whatever. You don’t have to label yourself, because it’s not set in stone. It’s so fluid and there’s so much pressure on kids to label themselves and say ‘This is what I am, this is what I like.’ I was just trying to say that it’s unnecessary; you don’t need to label yourself. I guess it came off the wrong way, because then everyone labeled me as gay. That’s not what I was trying to say. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, of course! But I did that literally just to say you don’t have to label yourself, and then everyone was like, ‘Lily Rose Depp comes out as gay!'”
