No Filter: Brittani Nichols Didn’t Understand The Assignment

Hello and welcome back to No Filter, your weekly collection of the week in celebrity Instagram. By the time you read this, I’ll be at A-Camp and I don’t know how to deal with that information because as far as I know it’s not on a mountain and I might even have cell reception. What will I do if there’s a bisexual celebrity emergency while I’m there?

Would you like this very intimate look into the relationship between Samira Wiley and Lauren Morelli? What could Lauren possibly be texting other than pictures of how cute those two look in robes together?

Brittani Nichols plays herself in every single role, so this is both terribly accurate and wildly inaccurate. What were your three? Mine were Strongbad, Oscar the Grouch and George Costanza.
Very Famous Millennial Gaby Dunn was elected Senator of bisexuality this week!

Annie Clark has no time for your bullshit. It’s starting to look a whole lot like she and Cara are done, huh? I feel nothing.

Queen Latifah is starting her own line of flowers or something? She’s very excited about that but really confused about what she’s doing in this column.

Would you believe Holland Taylor legit has a shrine to Sarah Paulson in her home? Because I believe it.

Jen Richards has got jokes.


Join us next week, when Queen Latifah comes up with her own line of trees, available at Kohl’s.

  1. I can’t get enough of Holland and Sarah. Their relationship sustains me.

    My three fictional characters were Lady Mary Crawley, Elaine Benes (specifically the pic of her smoking a cigar), and Candace & Toni. I realize that is four actual characters but Candace & Toni are a unit.
