Quotables: Jane Lynch Used to Abuse NyQuil

“I’d close the drapes, take a swig of NyQuil, toast with a simple ‘bye-bye’ and go into a deep sleep. … I was miserable the whole time.”

In case you didn’t know, Glee‘s Jane Lynch has a book coming out, wherein she discusses her previous battles with both depression and addiction. Lynch discusses a dark period in her life when she was substituting alcohol with NyQuil, and NyQuil with marijuana, and how it began to affect her mental well-being.

Call me old school or a trendy drug prude, but I wasn’t aware that taking NyQuil recreationally was a “thing.” I mean, it is? This is a thing that people do? Is this how Lindsay Lohan got her start, or is it a horse of an entirely different color?

Either way, congrats, Jane, for beating something that was obviously leading to other destructive behaviors. Good for you!

OMG, Sarah Palin on Glee?!?!?!?!

Are you super excited about seeing Sarah Palin on your favorite show?  Are you shivering in anticipation of seeing America’s favorite mom sing and dance throughout America’s favorite high school?  Well, then I have one word for you:


At least, I’m fairly certain it’s a “psyche” occasion.  I got this tip from a quote by Jane Lynch, Glee‘s Sue Sylvester, in which she said “I’m pretty sure we got Sarah Palin to do a guest spot on ‘Glee.’ She’ll perform an original tune I penned: ‘Look at Me, I’m Batshit Crazy.”  I mean, I know Jane is usually a really truthful person, but I just can’t imagine the Parents Television Council would allow a word as scandalous as “batshit” in the title of a Glee song, could you?

Six Weeks Left Until ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’ is Toast… You Freakin’ Out Yet?

The end of Oprah‘s final season is looming and I dunno about you guys, but I’m straight-up melting down over the idea that in six short weeks, for the first time in my life, I’m going to turn on the TV at 4 PM and O’s familiar face isn’t going to be there.

I know I can’t be alone in this, especially because former Roseanne writer/producer, Maxine Lapiduss has made this new music video “Scared About Life Without Oprah.” The video is hilarious, silly and generally relatable. Plus, it’s has a guest appearance by Glee‘s Jane Lynch, who always kills it.

But seriously, guys: What are we supposed to do in a world without Oprah? Have you seen OWN? It sucks so far. Master Class is a snooze, and even Our America with Lisa Ling isn’t doing it for me. Considering they did an episode about transgendered people, who are my favorite kind of people to learn about, I can’t wrap my head around why it sucks so badly. Maybe I just have ridiculously high standards for the Queen of Daytime and all of her projects?

Jane Lynch Thinks It’s Weird That You’d Want to Sleep With Her

Jane Lynch is attracting a whole new set of fans with her role on Glee, and the kind that she finds the weirdest are the ones that want to sleep with her. Jane says in the video interview above that she’s thrilled when musical theater fans approach her on the street, and while she’s flattered by the other kind of praise she occasionally gets, she’s not so sure why a 17-year old boy would say he wants to “do” her.

I can’t say I’m sure why a 17-year old boy would want to do the nasty with Jane Lynch either, but if that’s the strangest thing she’s approached about, then I’d say she’s pretty lucky.

Glee‘s Jane Lynch Ties the Knot With Her Long-Term Girlfriend

As odd as this might sound to some of you, I find Jane Lynch terribly attractive. Kind of in the way that I find Rachel Maddow uber-attractive. I guess there’s just something about a woman with short hair and a big smile who’s assertive and commanding that just totally appeals to me.

Jane Lynch, star of Glee, married her girlfriend Lara Embry in a small ceremony in Massachusetts yesterday afternoon:

Lynch donned a cream wrap blouse and black pants, while Embry wore an ivory and black cocktail dress.

Twenty-one guests, including the newlyweds, feasted on a dinner comprised of striped bass, truffle mushroom salad and pan-seared breast of duck. For dessert, everyone reportedly enjoyed a house-made cake filled with chocolate mousse, vanilla butter cream and fresh strawberries while a four-piece jazz combo played during the reception.

“It was small, warm, intimate and very sweet,” Snow told the mag [People]. “You could feel the love and friendship amongst the group.”

Striped bass? Chocolate mousse, fresh strawberries and a four-piece jazz combo? Uh, yes, please. All that with a side of Jane Lynch and I’d be one happy bitch myself.

Congrats to the happy couple!
