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. Everyone bangs on about how lucky Holland Taylor is, but come on, how lucky is Sarah Paulson to have someone in her life who loves her as much as Holland does. Queen of the Fangirls.

    • And who is also a MFing BAMF? I’m sorry, The L Word may have been a cluster fuck of epic proportions, but every line that came out of Peggy Peabody’s mouth was GOLD.

      • Holland Taylor’s line, ‘baby i’d give it to you family style’ is the one of the very few redeeming moments of L word.

  2. Those sparkly letters on Holland’s shrine are H and S for Holland and Sarah oh my goddddd

    Also this now 100% confirms that Holland is a witch

  3. 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.

  4. If I ever had “relationship goals” it would be Holland Taylor & Sarah Paulson. I cannot get over their cuteness. Seriously. Cannot.

  5. Queen Latifah’s facial expression really can read as, “I’m talking about flowers here, why am I in this article AGAIN? Guess I’ll smile anyway.”

  6. I would really like it if Queen Latifah hand picked each one and then she would personally hand it to me when I go to Giant, but that’s probably not how this goes.

  7. Are we ever gonna talk about how the only thing keeping Holland and Sarah from being 100% identical is their vast age difference or must I suffer through this edition of “related or dating” in silence?
