This morning I woke up to find I’d written “hippo” on my to do list last night. If anyone has any idea what I meant by that, please let me know. In the meantime, here’s your mid-week Pop Culture Fix, the TOP of my Wednesday to do’s!
+ Carmilla‘s Elise Bauman will finally be making Hallmark’s yuletide gay, alongside Tattiawna Jones! They’re starring in Hallmark’s first lesbian Christmas movie! It goes like:
Marketing whiz Alma Beltran (Elise Bauman) and Christmas tree whisperer Charlie Freemont (Tattiawna Jones) cross paths when Charlie finds the perfect tree for the Maine Governor’s Holiday Celebration – right in Alma’s back yard. While they initially spar, romantic sparks soon begin to fly between the two women as the enchanting tree and some Christmas fairy dust from the town’s pâtissière extraordinaire (Ricki Lake) bring out the best in them and spark each other to take leaps of faith and fight for love and Christmas magic.
+ The L Word: Generation Q’s Rosanny Zayas chatted with Black Girl Nerds about the best part of playing Sophie, Afro-Latina representation, and that time in season one when Tina said she didn’t want to have a Black baby.
+ Here’s the official trailer for The Girl in the Woods.
+ Parade interviewed The Circle’s gay fave Sophia Layne (spoilers for the season three finale, be warned!).
+ Last night, Courtney Vandersloot became only the second WNBA player in history — after Sheryl Swoopes — to pull off a triple double in a playoff game. During her post-game interview, her wife Allie Quigley stood by and waited, proudly and patiently, to remind her to say happy birthday to her mom on camera. 😂
