In some bittersweet news, Archie Panjabi is leaving The Good Wife after six seasons of playing the kick ass, queer investigator Kalinda Sharma. The news is only sweet at all because the actress is taking off to work on her own pilot for CBS.
On Tuesday I attended NBC’s Summer Press Day, a day long panel extravaganza filled with actors you vaguely recognize from USA, E!, SyFy, Netflix, and of course NBC. Walking in to the press room with my iPad mini and seeing 50 laptop screens aglow felt a lot like Elle Woods walking in to that Harvard classroom with just a notebook. Happily, I quickly realized that reporters brought laptops to entertain themselves during panels they didn’t care about. My iPad mini more than rose the the occasion.
The first show of interest was Last Comic Standing, executive produced by Wanda Sykes. Also on the panel was Roseanne Barr (a judge) and out executive producer Page Hurwitz. One highlight was when a reporter brought up the “women aren’t funny” question.
Today I went NBC Summer Press Day to chat with panels and interview my fav NBC starlets. I found out some amazing new lesbo news and celeb ‘AfterEllen Hot 100’ recs, but you’ll have to wait until I publish them with AfterEllen. I can give ya’ll one baby teaser:
Jill Flint (The Good Wife, The Night Shift) is adorable and clever and shares my appreciation for statuesque brunettes like Liv Tyler.
Plus we’ll have more Kalinda on “The Good Wife” soon and an “OITNB” star needs your help.
Kalinda apologizes to Cary while Bruce Springsteen provides the soundtrack.
Kalinda Sharma shares a bed with a woman again, and the angels sing their praises.
Mary Stuart Masterson battles against Jackie, while a new Lockhart Gardner hire naively underestimates Kalinda
The next contender for the Hottest Hookup in the AfterEllen Visibility Awards is Kalinda and Lana’s “goodbye garage door” romp on The Good Wife. Our minds are still reeling because this scene made it onto network TV. And by “minds” we mean “pants” and by “pants” we mean — oh, just watch it.
