No Filter: Samira Wiley And Rose Rollins Smile Together, Angels Sing

Welcome back to another rousing edition of No Filter, your weekly one-stop shop for all the news that’s unfit to print in any respectable publication. This week, a lot of people put on very shiny outfits and had their picture taken, and some other people dressed up as clowns. Let’s get down to business.


Danielle Brooks and Loretta Devine, star of my favorite breakup movie of all time (Waiting to Exhale) and also my heart. Danielle’s right – someone needs to put these two in a movie together immediately.

Oh wow. Do you think they had a cutest laugh competition? Probably woodland creatures appeared all around to cheer them on and a tiny bluebird fluttered between them and perched upon the shoulder of the winner. Who do you think it was?

First of all, Mey’s girlfriend Demi Lovato looked amazing at the Met Gala. Second of all, Nicki Minaj looks like the singer of a band I’d listen to in high school. Third of all, the look she’s giving Demi is amazing. We’re not going to talk about Jeremy Scott.

I just assumed this was what Cara wore to the Met Gala.

Oh hey, did you hire Kate Moennig for your kid’s birthday party? Cos she’s here and she’s ready to make balloon animals.

I know everyone had a lot to say about Ruby Rose’s acting skills on OITNB but these people were very nice and found her a role as a tree in their latest picture.

I guess Amandla, Aja and Lupita got really bored at the Met Gala.


Even my grandparents would be impressed.

  1. YES ROSE ROLLINS. Once upon a time I watched ALL of the L word before I knew I was gay (how did that not clue me in, I ask you) and kind of fell in love with Rose Rollins, thinking “I wouldn’t turn her down for sure” (AGAIN, how did that not clue me in ?!)

  2. I KNEW IT!!! I JUST KNEW THAT THE TASHA/ POUSSEY PICTURE WOULD MAKE THE COVER!!!

    I knew it the minute Samira posted that picture with Rose Rollins that Stef would find it and bring it to the masses. And thank goodness, because I’ve been waiting for dayyyyyys to squeal about it with someone!

    You guys. This picture! I died! I’m still dying! All that remains of me is glitter.

    (Is this what it would have felt like to actually been geniuly attracted to boy bands as a teenager? Because seeing them together, my response was positively adolescent)

    Rose Rollins! Samira Wiley! I can’t. I just can’t. It’s too much for my body to handle.

    The end (of me, that is).

  3. is that a three-legged dog??

    also, thank you. I didn’t know this was the first Met and I didn’t know what it was and it was stressing me out thinking that this is an annual thing I’ve ignored and then suddenly couldn’t.

  4. I WAS SO DELIGHTED BY SAMIRA WILEY AND ROSE ROLLINS

    when she showed up in The Catch I texted all of my friends… none of whom watch OITNB or The Catch. “this lesbian i really like is on this other tv show I watch”

    they were all excited for me
