Morning Meme: “Husbands” Finishes Strong, Eliza Dushku is She-Hulk, and Matthew Mitcham Doesn’t Mind the Attention

Husbands the Series finished their Kickstarter campaign at $60,000, over their $50,000 goal, with the additional money they can make it all bigger and better. Husbands the SeriesThanks to all who contributed. We’ll be following up with Jane, Sean and Cheeks soon.

Joe Eszterhas has released his tape of Mel Gibson going on a rant against his baby momma and Eszterhas. It’s pretty graphic, and not at all good for his already tarnished image.

The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have been hit with a lawsuit for racial discrimination for never having had a bachelor or bachelorette of color. It would be fairly hard to prove bias in casting based on what little I know of the system, but after 25 seasons of this dreck it is fairly indefensible.

Sean Hannity and Bill O’Reilly have reupped with Fox News for multi-year contracts that will keep their colorful versions of facts on the air for a very long time.

George LopezGeorge Lopez has signed on to host the dating show Take Me Out, where one bachelor talks about himself, and 30 women turn on their lights if they’re interested. I suppose a gay episode is out of the question?

When queried about the thought of passing ENDA, Speaker Boehner says “I haven’t thought about it much.” I think he may be exaggerating about how much he’s thought about it.

Kirk Cameron says that he thinks CCOKC: Child Celebrities Opposing Kirk Cameron is funny. He doesn’t hate anyone of course.

The Vatican has launched a crackdown on nuns for not being anti-gay and anti-abortion enough, instead spending their time fighting poverty and economic injustice. And Christ wept.

There is now a perfume that smells like a new MacBook Pro or other Apple product. I honestly never sniffed my iDevices when I opened them – is this a thing?

California Lt. Governor and gay ally Gavin Newsom is getting a weekly talk show on Current TV. I’m not sure I recall a major elected official doing Gavin Newsomea talk show while still in office. Is that legal? Has the equal time doctrine really been that destroyed?

Kangaroos have three vaginas.

I think we finally found out what’s wrong with snicks, he has a medical condition.

The Washington Post editorial board says that the Obama administration has “no principled reason for refusing to extend such workplace protections to millions of Americans.”

When the new Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. cartoon rolls out, geek queen Eliza Dushku will be voicing She-Hulk. Honestly, this makes me sad, because the first time I read it, I missed that it was a cartoon. Seeing Eliza do a live action She-Hulk would have been awesome.

Matthew MitchamAfter hearing so many gay celebrities say they aren’t out to be a role model for the gay movement or gay youth, hearing Matthew Mitcham made me grin ear to ear. “I certainly don’t see it as a burden. I never did, especially with how much attention the LGBT cause has been getting lately with marriage equality … and with how few openly gay sports stars there are around at the moment.I don’t mind attention being put on it. Ideally I would like one day for sexuality to be as unimportant and uninteresting as hair colour, or eye colour or even just gender in general. One day it will get to that. But until it is easy for sports people to come out without fear of persecution or fear of lost sponsorship income and stuff like that, or fear of being comfortable in the team environment, I don’t mind attention being brought to my sexuality in the hope that it might make other people feel more comfortable … in being comfortable enough about who they are in their sporting environment.”

The Archbishop of Wales, Dr. Barry Morgan, says that his church should embrace marriage equality. “All life-long committed relationships deserve the welcome, pastoral care and support of the Church.” It’s really worth reading all he says.

A quick reminder, there will be a liveblog for Days of Our Lives today with snicks at 1PM EDT.
