Former American Idol contestant Crystal Bowersox has been an avid LGBT supporter for the past three years since the show thrust her into the spotlight. An advocate for equality, Crystal has never spoken about her sexuality until just a few days ago when she appeared on Good Day L.A. saying, “I have been bisexual as long as I can remember,” she said. “I just remember being made fun of for that in junior high and it was something that was shameful and it really shouldn’t be.”
We had a huge blow up that night about it. I’m hurt and upset about it. She says I shouldn’t be worried about it because it was “nothing” and not her fault the woman kissed her. Of course, our fight was a drunken one and she said some hurtful things about us not having sex enough and me talking to the same girl all night. We’ve talked since the fight but we haven’t talked about it. Is there a good way to address this or let her know that even though it “meant nothing” to her, it hurt me? Or am I being overly sensitive and should just try to let it go?
When The Real World returns to San Francisco this January, there’s an added twist: The housemates will be paired up with an ex. So instead of seven strangers, living in a house, it’s 14 all-too-familiar faces. The resident lesbian couple is Arielle and Ashley, and we have some intel!
Plus Charlotte Sullivan has a crush on Evan Rachel Wood and more.
Kalinda Sharma shares a bed with a woman again, and the angels sing their praises.
This week in the season finale of Little Horribles, Amy hates all the parties she attends.
1. Adriana suggested that Isabel should be gay.
“Isabel’s character wasn’t going to be a lesbian,” Torrebejano reveals. “They hadn’t talked about it or anything. It happened because of things I added to the scenes. That’s when I talked to the writers and told them, ‘Why don’t you make this girl a lesbian? Because, it could be very beautiful. You could tell it very well. And a lesbian in the 19th century can be very interesting.’
Bello describes her partner as Clare, a woman she calls her best friend who she met while she was “sitting in a bar wearing a fedora and speaking in her Zimbabwean accent.” The two were friends first, then they went through a “long, painful, wonderful process of trying to figure out what our relationship was supposed to be.” So that finally solves the mystery of what Bello’s fedora in Prime Suspect was all about.
An analogy: Glee is like a box of chocolates. A box of chocolates you find sitting unattended at a bus station, and which you open because you have low blood sugar and a totally unfounded faith in humanity. And with each bite you wonder: will this be filled with razor blades, planted by someone who apparently wants to punish chocolate lovers? Will it be stuffed with so much beauty and heart and truth that it makes you cry with its sweetness? Or is it perhaps laced with LSD, which will cause you to hallucinate puppet versions of your friends, pirouetting madly to old school Janet Jackson? This week’s episode of Glee was that last kind of chocolate: sure it was a cold-blooded attempt to move singles on iTunes, held together by only the thinnest of narrative threads, but at least it wasn’t strawberry cream.
