Welcome back to No Filter, your once-weekly journey into the dark and twisted world of queer celebrity Instagram. I’ll be your host, Ryan Seacrest. This week, in news nobody can actually use, Kailyn from Teen Mom 2 is admitting she’s joining the team (welcome aboard) and Cara Delevingne is the ULTIMATE AIRPORT STYLE REBEL, a title I personally aspire to.
Annie Clark, MVP.
In these trying times, I need at least one weekly dose of Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli being adorable and positing fiercely that love is not a lie.
In my mind, Lauren Jauregui sent me this picture and caption in a text and I immediately started blushing.
Mallory Ortberg has gone grey and I don’t know what this means for her Joan Didion wig.
Sara Ramirez is clearly determined to slay all of her Instagram followers and I just don’t know what you expect me to do about it.
In thumbnail form I only saw the C and I was going to make a Cookie Monster joke about how that was good enough for me but now I see it’s the Ace Hotel and my joke no longer works. I’m sorry.
I guess Rutina Wesley is going in this column now whether she likes it or not. I am watching True Blood for the very first time and currently have a lot of questions for her, like first of all how dare you?
Join us next week, which will hopefully involve a column comprising 100% of Sara Quin’s cats through filters. I can’t believe this is my job.
Tag yourself: I’m Mallory Ortberg’s rings.
T&S cat’s chin.
I’m St Vincent’s indoor sunglasses for sporty vampires.
Sara Ramirez’ bootlace
I’m the vines over Stephanie Beatriz and the ACE hotel sign, just trying to creep politely
I’m the E because that means Stephanie was leaning on me, and that is just excellent!
I’m here for Sara Ramirez’s attempted murder of the entire AS community
If she ever posts a similar photo but is wearing glasses and it is shared here, I’m considering Steph responsible for taking care of my dog following my inevitable death. He needs a lot of medication and even more playtime/cuddles, so you’d need to find a direct flight to France. Just FYI.
Lauren Morelli seems to be posting her entire Thanksgiving prep process on Instagram Story and it probably the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen in the entire world ever.
I feel like a celeb’s public coming out is only fully complete when they appear in No Filter for the first time.
“I am watching True Blood for the very first time”
I worry for you Stef and hope you will keep your expectations VERY low. Of all the shows I regret watching, True Blood is at the top of the list. Rutina was totally wasted on it, Sookie Stackhouse is insufferable, and the plot is remarkably bad and only gets worse over time. Rutina had a very small part in Hannibal and was given more to do with that than her role on True Blood.
I’m still mad at how dirty they did her character in the final season.
I quit True Blood 2 seasons before it was over. Normally when I watch a show for years I come back to watch the series finale out of nostalgia but I didn’t even bother to do that with True blood
Carmen, you made the right decision. I watched it with my roommates and that was the only reason I finished it.
People kept saying ‘it’s a soft porn mixed with a romance novel, what do you expect?’ But I think someone out there could write a fine soft porn romance novel show that had a decent plot and did justice to its characters in addition to showcasing a bunch of abs and asses. Why is that too much to ask for?
I’ve also never seen a more stunning example of a gay show runner treating queer characters so badly. Alan Ball makes that guy from the 100 look good.
The way they wasted Evan Rachel Wood, That was criminal
i already knew it happened because of the dead lesbians of television haunted hay ride (sadie’s performance really stuck with me, especially because i got to see it like 4 times). but i wasn’t prepared for how FUCKING STUPID IT WAS in context. i’m so angry.
THIS IS THE WORST FUCKING SHOW
AND I’VE SEEN THE L WORD
RUN AWAY STEF
WE HAVE QUEEN SUGAR NOW
True Blood is a thousand percent worse than the L Word and the show is awful to Tara right up until the very end. They repeatedly tease at the idea of giving her a decent storyline and then fuck it up every time. Just thinking about True Blood makes me nostalgic for the L Word’s final season!
Doesn’t Rutina Wesley have the most beautiful skin you’ve ever seen in your life? It’s one of the things that immediately stuck out to me watching True Blood when it was on.
Every single thing Mallory posts makes me want to scream “MALLORY” and then swoon a little and I’m a little confused but also a little ok with it?
Sara Ramirez is a perfect human being, I love her so much!
I know there are much more important things going on in her life right now, but I am wondering if Trace Lysette’s tree Margaret is dead or alive.
i think about this like twice a day. I fear for the worst.
