We’ve got two bits of television news for you. The first come to us via our cousin Mollygood who, in turn, got it from those rascals over at Glitterati. Rumor has it that The L-Word‘s Kristanna Loken, who plays Paige, is so fed up with her castmate’s attitude problems that she’s leaving the show. Of the show’s lady-heavy cast, she says:
It’s an entire show of women. And the amount of egos and insecurities and cattiness that can go on with a bunch of women – that’s what you get.
[The Show] attracts certain people that want to do something different in their career, but the girls were tough. It’s a big, ensemble cast. And sometimes you wonder if they’ve bit off more than they can chew.
Yes, well, we can imagine things get a little hairy when you guys are all in sync and shit.
The second bit of news isn’t really lesbianic, but it does come to us from the chicks over at AfterEllen, who got it from The Hollywood Reporter. They’re reporting that former Warrior Princess Lucy Lawless has signed on to play Tanya for the American update of British sudster, Footballer’s Wives.
Fans of the original remember coke-snorting, baby-switching, husband hopping, long nail wielding Tanya Turner as being played by Zoe Lucker. While we can’t say we’re thrilled by the update, we’re glad the producers didn’t give the role to an American.
No offense, ladies, but we’re not sure you could pull it off with quite the right zest.
