VIDEO: Tegan & Sara Meet-Cute Cameron Esposito & Rhea Butcher In This DELIGHTFUL Holiday Short

It has been a banner week for Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher’s hit Seeso series “Take My Wife.” As you hopefully recall, I reviewed this series several months ago and my review was an enthusiastic expression of unbridled affection. It also included a Rhea Butcher fan collage. Hopefully said enthusiasm inspired y’all to subscribe to Seeso and watch Season One several times, as I did.

Well, BIG NEWS, people. BIG NEWS.

1. Seeso has renewed “Take My Wife” for a second season! I can’t wait to watch it six times.

2. In celebration of this announcement, Seeso released this delightful digital short, which will resonate with any lady who’s ever tried to check into a hotel room with another lady and also with anybody who likes Tegan & Sara and also with anybody who likes to laugh. So: at least 65% of you.

3. The PR people at Seeso are clearly TOTALLY BANANAS and sent me the weirdest press promo package ever for Season One of Take My Wife (which, as aforementioned, I’ve already viewed, and you should too). Prior to this very moment, I thought I might have to live my entire life only having shared photographs of this weird press package with all of the senior editors and my dear friend Kristin Russo. But this Season Two announcement and that digital short have given me the excuse I need to inform you that I now possess a pop-up Cameron & Rhea paper doll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It came in a large box I had to unfold and I thought there might be peanut butter inside. Little did I know what magical surprise was truly in store.

are you jealous?

  1. Ahh this is just the sweetest! I think I’m going to have to post that video annually as a holiday tradition from now on.

  2. Riese, I’ll give you $100 in cash money to for that paper doll. #onlyhalfkidding #illdoit

  3. thanks riese for always bringing us the best gay content. That video was so cute and those paper dolls are adorable ?

  4. So last time Tegan and Sara were in LA I took my friend along to go see them. He’s never seen them before and didn’t know much about them, and after the show (that was amazing btw) he goes: “So they’re dating, right?” and I was just like…they’re…identical?? Did you miss that???

  5. I love this SO MUCH. My wife and I loved the show, too, and we’re super excited to hear that there’s a season 2 coming. I just wish I could buy a copy of the show on its own, like the DVD it looks like they sent you. Seeso doesn’t work well on my iPad, which is what I watch all television on – like, you couldn’t really pause a video. And there was nothing else on there we cared much about watching. But we watched Take My Wife, oh, a bunch of times, despite the annoying viewer…

    Anyway, thanks for the news on this!

  6. This just made me way happier than anything else has in recent history. Like literally was squealing alone in my room in glee.
