Jane Lynch Divorces Wife Of 3 Years

Jane Lynch is a busy woman with all the Broadway acting and brilliant future as a rapper, but the latest thing on her to-do list isn’t fun: she’s getting divorced. She and Dr. Lara Embry were married for 3 years. They wed on labor day in an intimate ceremony in Massachusetts, where gay marriage is legal. Here’s her statement from People, via TMZ:

Lara and I have decided to end our marriage. This has been a difficult decision for us as we care very deeply about one another.

Just once I would love to see a divorce statement that is 100% brutal honesty. NOT SAYING hers isn’t. I’m saying how great would it be if Katie Holmes released a statement saying, “It should come as no surprise to anyone that my marriage contract is up and will not be renewed. We’re calling it a divorce. Yes, Tom Cruise is absolutely insane and there were times I feared for my life. Thankfully I am too famous now for him to make me disappear. I’m going to spend the rest of my life avoiding him and being thankful that I was able to get myself and my daughter Suri out of there before it was too late. Also, the guy is a total dick. Really controlling. Just a straight-up dick.”

TMZ has info on the legal issues that come with this divorce, which is slightly different from most as it is a gay marriage, meaning,

Lynch and Embry are California residents and a California court will almost certainly dissolve the marriage, even though gay marriages are not legal in California.  The State recognizes marriages from places where gay marriage is legal. … California is a community property state, which means unless there’s a prenup, Lynch and Embry would split all assets acquired during the marriage 50/50.  Although Embry’s no slouch, Lynch has made a bundle on “Glee” and other projects.

Sources connected with the former couple tell TMZ … they don’t have a prenup.

So there you go. Best of luck to them both.

Jane Lynch Knows All The Lyrics to ‘Super Bass’

Jane Lynch is hilarious and amazing, so it’s no surprise that she knows all the lyrics to Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Super Bass’ and that she felt the need to bust out into song while appearing on Conan earlier this week. The only thing wrong with this is that they should have let her sing the whole thing.

When Conan joked that Jane must have lots of opportunities to sing the song in her everyday life, she responded:  “Absolutely. I have all of these skills now that are just going to get me so far… And they don’t expect it from a 6-foot white lady.”

Love her!

Jane Lynch To Make Broadway Debut

Jane Lynch of Glee (but more importantly, some awesome Christopher Guest movies) is making her Broadway debut as the villainous Miss Hannigan from Annie. I love Ms. Lynch and I love the idea of her as Miss Hannigan, but Carol Burnett owns that role in my mind. She’ll probably kick ass at it, though. Lynch will play a very limited run, from May 16th to July 14th. In the meantime, for all your borderline evil orphanage owner needs, check out Burnett.

Sarah Jessica Parker famously made her Broadway debut as Annie in 1979. They missed the chance to go super weird with this and recast Parker as Annie.

On her new role, Lynch told The Baltimore Sun,

Some may say I know a thing or two about playing intimidating authority figures. So I am excited and honored to be making my Broadway debut with the wonderful Annie company at the Palace Theatre and joining the pantheon of women who have taken on the great and irresistible role of wicked Miss Hannigan.

Just once I wish a celeb would end of their standard polite informational soundbites with, “Because I’m f-cking awesome.” I mean, aside from Kanye West.
